The Bluegrass State
The first appearance of the Kentucky Gentleman! This character had an interesting genesis… A good friend of mine told me I should have a character named after bourbon. Jack Daniels was off the table. Jim Beam and Evan Williams were kind of obvious. George Dickel was a candidate but Kentucky Gentleman really sort of spoke to me. It was vague and perfect for the idea I had for the character, which was to represent Tripp’s subconscious with a straight-shootin’ cowboy, a la the Marlboro Man. This one’s for you, Gene!
