There is no doubt Baxter Black is On the Edge of Common Sense, but it is that “edge” that has gained him the title of one of the world’s leading humorists.

Tonite, Black will take his cowboy humor and poetry to the stage as he performs at NEO’s Fine Arts Center.

“I’m really looking forward to my trip to Miami,” said Black.

Since 1982, Baxter Black has rhymed his way into the national spotlight. According to biographical information, he now stands as the best-selling cowboy poet in the world. Black has written several books, recorded more than a dozen audio and video tapes, CDs and DVDs, and has achieved notoriety as a syndicated columnist and radio commentator. From the Tonight Show to National Public Radio to the National Finals Rodeo, Black’s verse has been heard by many.

A resident of Benson, Ariz., everything about Black is cowboy: his cartoonish mustache, his personality, and his poetry. Black still does not own a television or cell phone. He shines a spotlight on the flaws and foibles of the day-to-day ups and downs of people who live with livestock and work with the land.

Admission to Black’s performance is free. Reservations were made earlier to the public but unclaimed tickets will be released to the public at 7:15 p.m
