Former 80’s touring musician and current nationally touring comedian, Doug Canney has been entertaining people with his music and comedy since his early teens. Doug’s first stand-up performances were impromptu, off the cuff sets when all hell would break loose during a band show. “The first time I did 15 minutes of stand-up was when our drummer had an asthma attack at the end of the song ‘Hot For Teacher’. I knew right then, I loved stand-up and we probably needed a new drummer”. Living in his car for most of the year, doing over 300 shows and setting his personal record of 9500 miles in 21 days, he’s the epitome of the old school “road-dog” comedian. He’s been called the “human energy drink” and his sometimes spastic performances reflect this well-deserved moniker.
