The Bert and I Company of Maine, LLC
Our company acquired a Motion Picture Option for the Bert and I Intellectual Property in August of 2012, We intend to make a full-length comedy feature film based on Bert and I characters and stories; develop a variety stage show and radio program; produce humorous spoken-word CDs, and create other entertainment ventures. We are located in both Maine and Massachusetts. The Bert and I characters are two old lobstermen who tell humorous stories in a thick Maine accent. The original Bert and I albums were very popular in New England from the late 1950's through the early 1980's, and are still available on CD and still in demand. In 2013, I produced the the CD, "Bert and I...Rebooted," featuring founder Robert Bryan (now 82) and Maine's best known humorist, Tim Sample. It was the first new Bert and I album in more than 30 years and has been received very well. Fifty years ago, "Bert and I" (Robert Bryan and Marshall Dodge) popularized the expression," You cahn't get they-ah from hee-yah," and if you've heard someone say that, especially in an old-time New England accent, you've were introduced to Bert and I whether you knew it or not.
