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.
