Sorta Jokey (but still true) Bio.
Grant Baciocco was born on May 20, 1974. From a young age, one of his constant companions was a little red tape recorder that his parents gave him (and which he still has). He used the tape recorder to make up stories, shows and record his parents when they were yelling at him to play back later when company was over.
He discovered Dr. Demento in 6th grade, who introduced him to the likes of “Weird Al” Yankovic, The Smothers Brothers, Tom Lehrer, Allan Sherman and his hero, Stan Freberg. He’s been lucky to do a lot in the entertainment industry from entertaining crowds aboard The Jungle Cruise at Disneyland to playing a sold out show at the Tokyo Dome in Japan.
His favorite TV Show is Deadwood.
His favorite movie is Shaun Of The Dead.
His favorite food is beef brisket from Big Nate’s Barbeque in San Francisco.
He also like pro wrestling, but don’t hold that against him.
