Penguins Comedy Club located inside The Vault presents The Comedy Monster.
February 21st for one show at 8:00 PM


 

The comedic hydra, Don Tjernagel takes the stage again, showcasing his talent for raw humor
in his show “The Comedy Monster”. A monster comedian with many sides to his twisted
head takes to the stage once more. While Don Tjernagel’s rare blend of honest observation of
unmentionables usually creates a stir of discomfort, this show may make people cringe outright.
“The Comedy Monster” stand-up show promises to deliver a fully uncensored live performance
for those who like to see a truly unabashed comedian express exactly what he really think.
 
Don “Donzilla” Tjernagel has run rampant on stages across the country before. Tjernagel started
his stand-up career in 1997 and has continued to figuratively crash his way through audiences
comfort zone ever since. Since his debut in Las Vegas, Don “Donzilla” Tjernagel has fine-tuned
his show. After a brief period of dormancy, Tjernagel has continued to add to and update bits and
pieces to his routine. Now Don “Donzilla” Tjernagel has created a monster of a show for those
willing to sit down and watch as he deconstructs long held institutions with his dirty sense of
humor.
 
Don “Donzilla” Tjernagel remains “the world’s best and smartest dirty comedian” according
to Richard Lanoie of theseriouscomedysite.com, a recurring reviewer of Tjernagel’s work.
Don “Donzilla” Tjernagel has a singularly dirty mind capable of turning from blowjob jokes
to political statements in one small bound. Furthermore, Don backs up Lanoie’s claim with his
excellent comic timing, insistence on free speech and uncensored material and his continued
dedication to dirty and smutty jokes. The “Donzilla” promises to present a show that upholds the
kind of tasteless filth he and his audiences love.

  • Dwight York
    August 19, 2016 at 8:00 PM Dwight York

    “I hope you like jokes” may seem an absurd way for a comedian to begin a show but those are the words that comedian Dwight York uses to introduce himself to his audience each night. Then the joke-slinging begins and never ends until York says “goodnight” a couple hundred perfect one-liners later.

    Dwight York performs at many of the nation’s top comedy clubs and every summer headlines the Buffalo Chip Comedy Club at the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. He has appeared at the Great American Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a two-time finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Contest. In October of 2014, he placed 2nd at the Laughlin Laugh Fest.

    York has also been a favorite guest on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show and was featured on their CD, You Guys Rock. York’s CD Quickies (Stand Up! Records) can be heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s Raw Dog Comedy Channel and was rated a “top ten comedy release of the year” by The Serious Comedy Site. Laffspin Magazine says that Dwight York, as inventive as he is suggestive, is what Steven Wright would be if Wright had Robert Schimmel’s blue streak, and that’s a  compliment to all three master comics.
