Bio For Jolly Demis
Jolly Demis earned his namesake the day he was born. "This is the jolliest baby I've ever delivered," the doctor said. Starting his entertainment career as a singer songwriter, Jolly’s career began as the leader of many successful bands that performed nationally.
Always a bit of a jokester and looking for the funny stuff in life, he started interacting with the audience. Eventually going solo, Demis evolved into more of a comedian than a musician. Within a few years, Jolly began to establish not only a Colorado following but also began to sprout a national reputation for his hilarious live performances. Before long, Demis was on the fast track to fame, opening for the Kingston Trio at the legendary Copa Room at the Sands Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip! Jolly incorporates both music and comedy in his shows, as well as an uncanny ability to involve any audience in the act. Whether opening for various heavyweights such as Lee Greenwood, Mario Lopez, Three Dog Night, Bill Engvall of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, and "NYPD Blue" and "La Bamba" star, Esai Morales, or headlining nationally, Demis’ comedic versatility and showmanship make him the consummate entertainer. When Jolly’s not making corporate America laugh, he still finds time to lend his talents to worthy causes such as Children’s Hospital, Race for the Cure, Special Olympics and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Jolly’s songwriting and musical talent are evident in television jingles heard on stations from coast to coast. He can also be seen on the Golf Channel hosting a new infomercial with World Record Long Driver, Jack Ham and PGA all time great, Al Geighberger. His list of credits aside, Jolly is at his creative best during live performances, in which he wastes no time endearing himself to every audience. The spontaneous songster has the unique ability to find hilarity in all aspects of life and enable audiences to laugh at themselves with him. “Jolly Demis sounds like the name of a clown or maybe even a candy bar. But there’s nothing clownish or too sweet about Demis, a man of considerable talent when he uses his voice, guitar, and comedy repartee with the audience.” - Walter Saunders, Rocky Mountain News
