Penguins Comedy Club located inside The Vault presents DC Malone.
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.
November 8th and 9th
Show time 7:30 PM
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.
