I recently heard of an Vent act named George and Otto. From everything I heard I would love to see this act. Has anyone here ever seen it?

Otto & George is a great act the you will NEVER see on TV. It would give the FCC a heart attack. It is the dirtiest vent act ever. By the by, Otto & George's biggest fan is David Copperfield. This is not a joke.

I heard that Andrew Dice Clay hacked Otto's naughty nursery rymes. Hickory dickory dock...... And what not. That's the word on the street. I also heard he could clear a room of normal audience members while the comics are on the floor laughing. God, I have got to see this act. Anyone know of any bootleg footage of it available? I don't make it to N.Y. much at all.

What's really interesting for vent performers to note is the busting of the old school requirements for technical perfection which sometimes takes priority over material. This guy found his niche and audience and not only do his lips move his whole mouth goes up and down like the dummies mouth...hahaha...no stops to drink 6 glasses of water and vent talk, while doing a tongue stand on the head of a pin. Just an outpouring of outrageous material. Those I'm sure who are technical perfection in not moving the lips under any circumstances might not approve...that's understandable after all that hard work...but for those like me who's hero was Edgar Bergan, who couldn't care less about such stuff and went for character over technical tricks it's great to see George & Otto bust out...personally I prefer to write for a more family approach but my favorite vent/puppet act was Waylon Flowers And Madame who worked as blue as they come. (no pun intended).
And that dummy in the G&O act is hilariously 'homemade'. Good stuff!

Hey Village...eMail me! I want to get you my phone number and have a jaw session.

Otto is more comedian than vent since his lips control is--nonexistent. BUT--his material, though filthy, is one belly laugh after another. Given the choice, I'll take great material over great technique any day! A GREAT vent using similar material is John Pizzi.

Don't be modest Rick. Some of the "off the cuff" comedic material I've heard from you would make Otto and George seem like the Sister Mary Margaret comedy hour at 5:00 Mass.

Thanks Rick.. I was hoping to be considered Otto with class.
Ha
Otto is really funny and a nice guy. I worked with him many times back in the Pips comedy club days in the 80's. I ve booked him many times and he always makes a impact.


Hes also a big movie buff and is very welled versed at old films. Hes def a enigma in the Vent world.

Theres a market for everybody~

I looove Otto and George! Otto's act is exactly like that--he's a self-confessed bad vent. They are a solid comedy team!

I just watched some of George and Otto's vids on youtube.

He is fricking hilarious. One of the funniest vents I have ever seen, regardless of his lip control.

I'm definitely from the school that the "show", and making people laugh, have a good time, and enjoy a great show is a helluva lot more important than lip control.

Now don't get me wrong, Lip Control is important, but the show is more so in my opinion.

But somehow I get the distinct feeling that George and Otto don't do to many child's birthday party type gigs? ; )

I've seen Otto and George on Howard TV (OnDemand) and heard them on the Howard Stern Radio show. Howard is a big fan of Otto and George, and you don't have to suffer through bleeps when they are on Howard's show. Good times...good times...
