Dr. Demento

Dr. Demento

Appearing all 3 days!

Dr. Demento has been celebrating ‘mad music and crazy comedy’ on the airwaves playing
everything from Spike Jones to Frank Zappa for nearly five decades. He is responsible for
introducing the world to the Dr. Demento Show’s #1 most requested song of all time, “Fish
Heads”, and even launching the career of the most successful artist in the entire history of
funny music—“Weird Al” Yankovic. Throughout the years, the world-famous Doctor’s influence
on pop culture has earned him induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame, an hour long
Anniversary special on Comedy Central featured guest appearances on Late Night with David
Lettermen, Larry King Live, and countless others including the award-winning animated sitcom
The Simpsons.
Dr. Demento is a world-renowned record collector and music historian, whose lifelong passion
for music of all kinds is reflected in the weekly selections heard on the Dr. Demento Show. In
addition to live appearances and performances nationwide, the Doctor lectures at educational
institutions drawing on his extensive knowledge of the history of Comedy, the music of Frank
Zappa, the history of punk rock, and many other topics.
Most recently, a documentary feature film on his life and career is in the works, and a
compilation album of all-new recordings entitled “Dr. Demento Covered In Punk” was
released on CD, vinyl and digital download. The new album (released January 2018) has the
notable honor of being the highest charting “Dr. Demento” branded release to date. “Dr.
Demento Covered In Punk” debuted on the Billboard chart as the #1 Comedy album for two
consecutive weeks, with the unique duality to chart outside comedy as the #18 new alternative
music album, #20 on Billboard’s top independent album chart, and #5 on the Billboard
Compilation Albums chart as well.
With interest from an entirely new generation of ‘Dementites and Dementoids’ (as his fans are
affectionately known), as well as those who’ve been loyal throughout the 70s, 80s, 90s and
onward, the Doctor is in and more topical than ever!
