The Lyric is where is all started for Dirty Jobs‘ host Mike Rowe.
“I can’t come to Baltimore and not talk about that stage, because that, for me, was the first stage in public where I ever stood and listened to an audience, and I liked it,” said Rowe. “I owe everything to the Lyric stage actually. “
From the Lyric, Rowe landed a hosting job at QVC, then a decade of hosting the fiercely popular show Dirty Jobs on the Discovery Channel.
“I had probably 300 jobs. After QVC, from 1992 until 2001, probably 300 jobs,” said Rowe.READ MORE: COVID-19 In Maryland: More Than 3K New Cases Reported Sunday As Hospitalizations and Positivity Rate Continues To Decline

“Whenever I get to a town and have a few extra days, we book a theater and we generally fill it up with people who want to hear tales from the dirt. And I have a few… I’ve got a few hundred,” said Rowe.
On Saturday, he’ll be back on stage at the Lyric.
“It wouldn’t have happened without the Lyric,” Rowe said.MORE NEWS: Salvation Army, 101.9 Collect Coats, Gloves To 'Bundle Up Baltimore' Homeless
