D C Malone

After over two decades touring as one half of the celebrated comedy team

Malone and Nootcheez, D.C. Malone has proven himself to be a great solo

entertainer.

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.
