“I hope you like jokes” may seem an absurd way for a comedian to begin a show but those are the words that comedian Dwight York uses to introduce himself to his audience each night. Then the joke-slinging begins and never ends until he says “goodnight” a couple hundred perfect one-liners later.
Dwight York performs at many of the nation's top comedy clubs and headlines the Buffalo Chip Comedy Club at the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. He has also appeared at The Great American Comedy Festival, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a two-time finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Contest.
York has also been a favorite guest on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show and was featured on their CD, You Guys Rock. His CD Quickies (Stand Up! Records) was rated a "Top Ten Comedy Release of the Year" and can be heard regularly on Sirius XM Satellite Radio and 24/7 Comedy. Laughspin says "Dwight York, as inventive as he is suggestive, is what Steven Wright would be if Wright had Robert Schimmel’s blue streak, and that’s a compliment to all three master comics."
