Cut from the cloth of “classic” comedy, Skippy Greene combines old-school style with new-school attitude.
Whether Skippy is telling stories about his escapades with celebrities (like Betty White, Gary Coleman or Barbara Bush) or stories about his days in Vegas, one thing is sure…someone will be offended. And that’s just fine for Skippy.
Skippy has mixed crude (yet smart) jokes with obscure references like 1980’s cartoons. His show takes you on a ride…a sometimes dark and perverted ride, but a funny ride as well. When asked “Who is Skippy Greene?” Skippy replied:
“I'm a fucking comedian, and a really good one too. Actually, if I can be so bold, I'm funnier than shit...and when I say "funnier than shit", I really mean "funnier than Carlos Mencia", who is literal shit. GUMMI BEARS!”
Skippy has had the pleasure of performing for royalty, he’s jammed with Jimi Hendrix, gotten stoned with Bill Clinton & had Celine Dion open up for him, after which he said: “She was a great opener…and when we were done she performed at my show. VOLTRON!”
Skippy has been seen on many television shows including his short-lived sitcom from 1984. It holds the record for the shortest run of any television series having been cancelled less than a minute into the first episode. When possible, Skippy shows the clip at his live shows.
Skippy was also voted Critics Choice at the Famecast.com Comedy Competition, invited to showcase at the Hollywood Comedy Festival & The San Luis Obispo Comedy Festival. He was a featured/guest comedian on SiTV's Latino 101 and was featured on Last Comic Standing 7. Skippy said of his experience on LCS, “It was fun but I knew I wouldn’t get on the show, I mean, after all, I’m funny. CAPTAIN CAVEMAN!”

Please know that Skippy is not for everyone; if you are easily offended by profanity or taboo subjects, Skippy’s not for you. But for those of you with an open mind and a great sense of humor, you will sure to have a night to remember.
