Bobby Ray Shafer is awesome
25 September 2017 | by lauraabankerSee all my reviews

Robert Ray Shafer delivers another great performance. I enjoyed watching his work. He has a larger than life presence combined with a great sense of humor. They Want Dick Dickster has a great story line with an unexpected ending. I can't wait to tell my friends about it (without giving too much away).
