Show time 7:30 PM

D.C. was born in Eugene, Oregon, the son of a jazz drummer mortician. He lived in a mortuary till he was 13 years old. "That tends to hone your comedy skills right off the bat" says D.C. Originally a drummer like his father he started playing guitar at age 10. Raised on jazz, blues, and folk music his life changed radically when he heard his first comedy album. "My grandmother gave me an Allen Sherman record when I was a kid and I was hooked." After that he split his time between the Beatles and the Smothers Brothers.
 
Leaving home at 16, D.C. traveled to Toronto, Canada where he met his future partner and longtime friend Hampton Nootcheez. Although they began with aspirations of rock stardom, they both realized with time that they were much too cynical to be serious musicians. Nature took its course and a comedy team was born.
 
Hitchhiking over 40,000 miles in the early 70s and traveling extensively around Europe and the Orient, D.C. has gathered life experience that shows in his work. Whether expounding on the trails and tribulations of marriage and the complications of subsequent single life, or talking about his childhood, singing questionable camp songs, or maybe blasting into his blues classic "Upper Middle Class, White Ass Suburban, Just Moved to the Better Part o' Town Blues," D.C. Malone has put together an incredibly entertaining show filled with hilarious songs backed by expert guitar rhythm, phenomenal finger picking and stories directly inspired by his own fascinating life.
 
Everyone can find something they relate to in D.C.'s show. His ease and likeability on stage makes you feel like your watching a friend.
 
In D.C.'s own words, "Hey, comedy for you, therapy for me," and it is good comedy.
 
Besides comedy clubs, casinos, concerts, and corporate bookings, D.C. is spending a great deal of time overseas entertaining our troops. (The Orient, Europe and most recently Iraq and Kuwait) It's a great feeling hearing them laugh, they're a wonderful audience.

  • Kevin McCaffery
    December 16, 2017 at 8:00 PM Kevin McCaffery
    Kevin McCaffrey is a comedian & writer based out of New York City. He made his network TV debut on The Late Show with David Letterman in November of 2013 (after which he was hired to do warm-up for the show), and he currently appears every week on truTV Presents: World’s Dumbest. He has also appeared on VH1’s I Love the 2000s, History Channel’s I Love the 1880s, and The List on the WWE Network. Kevin hosts College Stories with Kevin McCaffrey, a weekly podcast talking to comics, writers, and actors about their time in college, and their best/funniest/craziest stories from that time.
     
    Originally from Chicago, he graduated from Ball State University despite the school’s general policy of taking attendance. Since then he has been a contributing monologue writer for The Late Show with David Letterman. Kevin has also appeared on The Late Show many times as an actor, once being hosed down by Dave with a fire extinguisher. To his knowledge, this is an honor Kevin shares only with Richard Simmons.
     
    When asked to describe his exceedingly unique brand of comedy, Kevin says, “What I do, is I try to say stuff that’s funny.” That’s how avant-garde he is! As a performer, he relies on content more than volume; he’s not the crazy props guy, the crazy angry guy, or the crazy fat guy. At least not yet.
