Laughs are headed to Caldwell, thanks to Dry Bar Comedians Dennis Gaxiola, Kermet Apio, and Spencer King. The wildly popular online series of specials that offer clean “Comedy for Everyone” is expanding to live shows featuring comedians who’ve become Dry Bar fan favorites. Dry Bar specials have generated over TWO BILLION views on social media and generated millions of fans. 3 comics and countless laughs are heading your way to delight all-ages audiences with their unique comedy.
Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, Kermet Apio enjoyed a childhood in paradise. He spent his time watching television, playing, and procrastinating everything else. To this day, he still does all three extensively. In May of 1990, he quit his job, said goodbye to health care and benefits, and took the leap to performing full-time. It is still his only job skill.
He was the winner of the 2009 Great American Comedy Festival and has had numerous appearances on television and radio. He has showcased at comedy festivals in Aspen, Las Vegas, and Vancouver and has performed in 47 states and 3 Canadian provinces. He is a past winner of the Seattle Comedy Competition and was a semi-finalist in the San Francisco Comedy Competition. Also, in 1988 he was Dishwasher of the Month at the Sea-Tac Airport Denny’s.
Kermet is married and the proud father of two wonderful children. He enjoys his family, baseball, and pie. He does not enjoy opera, sitting in traffic, and writing about himself in the third person.
Spencer King is a 20 year veteran of the comedy stage. With a knack for clever observational humor, Spencer has entertained audiences throughout the USA and Canada with his unique brand of comedy. He’s an actor and writer, known for his Dry Bar Comedy specials and On the Mic Podcast with Tim Drake (2013). King’s comedy has been described as “pleasantly irreverent” which, incidentally, is the title of his comedy CD.
Dennis Gaxiola is one of America’s funniest clean comedians. The preacher’s son and Air Force veteran, with over 20 National Television appearances, including Comedy Central’s Laffapalooza with Jamie Foxx, Stand up Revolution with Gabriel Iglesias, STARZ Networks First Amendment Stand Up, TBN’s Praise The Lord Comedy Specials, Show Time at the Apollo, BET’s Comic View, Que Locos and more.
(Dry Bar Comedy is “Funny for Everyone” but still may have content that some families may not agree with.)
