Wavy Gravy


Wavy may be best known to millions as a cosmic cut-up and the inspiration for a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor – “I am an activist clown and former frozen dessert,” he says – but it is because of his good work on behalf of the planet and its least fortunate residents that Wavy Gravy has achieved his own brand of sainthood. His friend and satirist Paul Krassner has called him “the illegitimate son of Harpo Marx and Mother Teresa.” Wavy says, “Some people tell me I’m a saint, I tell them I’m Saint Misbehavin’.”

Mr. Gravy comes to the Fair as part of the Spoken Word program that features poets, musicians, cultural icons, activists and wordsmiths; seventy-two different speakers on 7 separate stages.
