Mike Rowe, the host of the popular Discovery Channel series “Dirty Jobs,” will be at the Ford Wyoming Center on Thursday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. for “An Evening with Mike Rowe.” Tickets for the event will go on sale on Friday, June 23, at 10 a.m.

According to his biography, Rowe is a writer, narrator, producer, recording artist, Emmy-Award-winning TV host, New York Times bestselling author, and the CEO of the mikeroweWORKS Foundation.

The Q&A will feature questions about work ethic and the skills gap, the importance of elevating the trades, the role community colleges play in addressing the skills gap while providing training to meet the needs of local businesses, the value of a skilled workforce, and changing the misperception and stereotypes of these types of jobs, according to Denise Bressler, executive director of the Casper College Foundation.

As the creator and host of “Dirty Jobs,” Rowe is best known as “the dirtiest man on TV.” As a perpetual apprentice, Rowe has highlighted hundreds of workers in dozens of essential industries. Rowe is also the executive producer and narrator of “How America Works.” The mikeroweWORKS Foundation has awarded over $6 million in work ethic scholarships to nearly 1,500 men and women, and his commitment to reinvigorate the skilled trades is unrivaled.

A limited number of tickets to meet Rowe before the event are also available for $100 per person and will include an autographed copy of Rowe’s book “The Way I Heard It.” Tickets can be purchased at the box office or by calling 307-577-3030 or online.
