My First Band Sons of Elvis on the Jon Stewart Show
26th
Nov


Way back in the ’90s, before I was a world-famous entertainer of the highest order, I was just a regular rock god from Cleveland playing in my first band Sons of Elvis. We made one album for Priority Records before eventually falling prey to processed foods and house paint fumes and eventually breaking up like so many young bands do. Before that happened, though, we were guests on Jon Stewart’s short-lived but awesome Jon Stewart Show along with Sam Elliott, the cast of Stomp! and one other guest whose name time has wrestled from me but whom I remember as being super hot. What I remember most from that day is all the free candy and sandwiches and also barging into Jon Stewart’s dressing room and telling him a really great story about how I had met him once before in a bar for a second, which he listened to graciously, laughing knowingly at all the right parts. You can watch and hear us play the hits above. That’s me on bass. I don’t defend the hair or clothes, though I still have the velvet pants and occasionally dig them out and think “Hmmm, maybe.”

Still street,

Episode 54 of Dave Hill’s Podcasting Incident with Special Guest Kevin Allison Is Up Now! Listen, Dammit!

Episode 54 of Dave Hill’s Podcasting Incident is here to smack you in the privates as I sit down with Kevin Allison, whom you no doubt know from the State, Risk!, Stella, and Reno 911 among other sweet stuff, to discuss a lot of the stuff I just mentioned but also- and more importantly- something called kink camp, tickle torture, a lady named Strap-on Joe, and about a million other things that basically require you to listen to this episode five times it’s so incredible. Also, I check in with my secretary Shaina Feinberg, answer questions from listeners, and let Ian Ball take it all home with his Hot Jamz. In short, this episode pretty much has it all. Did I mention Kevin got hit in the nuts with a riding crop? Oh yeah, he talks about that too. You can listen to it all right here.

The Dave Hill Explosion with Special Guests Tig Notaro + Valley Lodge This Thursday, November 29 at UCB Theatre NYC

Happy Thanksgiving. Am I right? Anyway, I just wanted to take a quick break from my community service hours to let you know that this Thursday, November 29 at 9:30pm at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre over there in Chelsea, the heat will be brought in the form of my critically-acclaimed/reasonably priced nightclub act the Dave Hill Explosion. You know, hardly a month goes by when someone doesn’t approach me in the Port Authority men’s room and say “Hey, Dave, sorry for barging in on you like this but are you still doing that show of yours?” I’d like to think they are referring to my Dave Hill Explosion show so I always say yes and this message is proof that I’m not messing around and also there is no amount of loose change that will ever get me to compromise my values or belief system ever again no matter how desperate or lonely I get. Anyway, my show next week is going to be really great and- let’s be honest- kind of dangerous. And I don’t just mean that in the artistic sense- at least half of the things I am planning so far are in clear violation of local fire codes and also the goddamn smell will stick with your clothes for days. I swear to god, the helicopters are already circling my apartment as I type this. As if all of that is not enough, I will be joined next week by special guest, the lovely and talented comedian Tig Notaro, my sweet rock band Valley Lodge, and, of course, my bearded sidekick Phil and winsome henchman Carl Arnheiter. Stick around for the meet and great. You can and should get tickets right here unless you are volunteering for a medical experiment that day or something, which is nuts.

Love,
Dave Hill

Dave Hill’s Podcasting Incident is back for it’s 53rd exhilirating episode. This is time around I sit down with comic genius/legend Chris Elliott at R.J. Julia book store in Madison, Connecticut to discuss his awesome new book The Guy Under the Sheets as well as his Letterman days, Get a Life, Cabin Boy, Eagleheart, and so much more you will probably pull a groin just listening. You can listen to the whole thing right here (And, if you haven’t already, be sure to check out Episode 52 with Dick Cavett right here).

Thanks,
Dave Hill
