FESTIVAL SUPREME PRESENTS: Show & Tell w/ Dr. Demento

CO-PRESENTED BY FESTIVAL SUPREME

Uhhhhhhh — this is something all of us at Cinefamily have wanted for a very long time. This man was a hero to us when we were growing up, and he remains at the helm of the most influential radio program ever to combine humor and music. We’re talking about Barry Hansen, better known to the world as Dr. Demento: the pioneering broadcaster and record collector who’s given endless joy to trillions of comedy fans, and who gave knuckleheads like us our first taste of “Weird Al” Yankovic, Barnes & Barnes, Tom Lehrer and so many more. The man’s a national treasure, and he’ll be joining us for a bevy of amazing stories about discovering new talent, what it was like to work in the heyday of classic Los Angeles FM radio, the very essence of record collecting — and, best of all, he’ll be sharing some of his favorite films and recordings with us during the show. Somebody pinch us, to make sure we’re not dreaming! Plus, Jack Black will be introing the show!

Dr. Demento is one of the many, many acts on the bill of this year’s edition of Tenacious D’s FESTIVAL SUPREME. Click here for Festival Supreme tickets!
