He’s the irreverently funny man you’ve laughed at on shows like Talk Soup and the VH1 I Love the ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s series, but who knew he was from Kentucky?
We talk to Hal Sparks about growing up in the Commonwealth, fronting a rock band and acting on the big screen. He reveals what made his family move from Louisville to Peak’s Mill, KY, and how he went from a home with no TV to a successful career on television.
In this Louisville Life story, Hal Sparks was recorded at his February 13, 2009, show at Improv Louisville (located at 441 South Fourth Street, Louisville, KY).
Hal Sparks appeared at the Kentucky Derby Festival in 2000 as a guest of the KDF. They provided Louisville Life with footage of Hal’s KDF experience for this story.
