About Pony Death Ride
Best described as Archie and Edith Bunker with a ukulele and glockenspiel, Pony Death Ride can be seen performing paired down versions of their songs at burlesque variety shows and comedy clubs with just a ukulele and a glockenspiel. They have appeared multiple times in Los Angeles at two of the city’s longest running burlesque variety shows Striptease Menagerie and Monday Night Tease, and at the San Francisco Bay Area’s world famous Hubba Hubba Review, in addition to performing at El Cid in Los Angeles as part of the Musical Comedy Circus and The Upright Citizen's Brigade in Hollywood, Ca. In their hometown of San Diego, they’ve guest hosted Laugh Attack at the American Comedy Co., and played with comedian Neil Hamburger, Mojo Nixon, Har Mar Superstar,and Robert Lopez (El Vez). In October of 2015 the duo hosted and performed at The Arizona Burlesque Fest in Tucson, Az., and December embarked on their third annual Christmas extravaganza starting in Tucson and includes Albuquerque, Denver, Flagstaff, and San Diego. last year's tour took the duo up the west coast from San Diego to Seattle with many shows in between. This year's holiday shows will take them back to San Francisco, Pacifica, Los Angeles, Tucson, and Bisbee, winding up in San Diego.
First casting eyes upon each other a few years ago at the Casbah, the MacAskills are finally expressing their unconventional personalities and musical abilities together as Pony Death Ride. Along with Joe’s past experience leading bands, writing songs and performing standup comedy, Jaye’s associations with the Burlesque Hall of Fame Museum (formerly “Exotic World”) and the “new burlesque” movement have all had major influences on PDR’s unique and irreverent conceptual development.
