ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One of Saturday's big events is a show by comedian and popular radio host Steve Harvey. Friday night, he met some of his fans including our own Karla Heath Sands.
A big crowd came out to Books-A-Million at the Albany mall for a book signing with Harvey.
He signed copies of his new book about relationships called "Act like a lady, Think like a man."
The Civic Center doesn't often attract big name acts anymore, but filled up two shows in 2007 and Harvey is happy to be back.
"You all got a nice venue here. Y'all fill it up when I come into town. That's all that matters to me. You know, you got good people down here. I'm from Welch, West Virginia. Now, it don't get too much smaller than that. Some of the best people I've met are from small towns," said Steve Harvey.
Yolanda Byrd said, "We're both here to come and get our autograph from Steve Harvey and have a good time this weekend."
Harvey will perform a comedy show Saturday night at 8 o'clock at the Civic Center. If the show isn't sold out yet, it's close.
