Comedy @ The Carlson presents: Dr. Dirty John Valby Thanksgiving Eve Bash

After spending an evening with John Valby, audiences find themselves wanting more and more of him. What makes Valby so unique and entertaining is his uncommon rapport with the audience and his ability to mix his musical Talent with a mad-cap variety of “Dirty Ditties”. Few people can resist laughing at songs that would have earned them a mouthful of soap when they were children.Valby’s repertoire is composed of popular songs, limericks, classical arrangments and his own original creations. Valby has made a career out of poking fun at his audiences, stretching the limits of free speech and accepted good taste and satirizing current events from behind the piano.
