I was VERY disappointed in the Grave Digger's performance. No statements were related to the event and the request to make jokes related to the challenges of being a father. Inappropriate content was introduced for the audience; and the comedian has been informed that children would be present. Also, Grave Digger continued well past the time allowed: 10 minutes were requested. After 20 minutes, the performer had to be given a signal to stop and then continued past the signal.
Price Range: $500 and up,plus room,travel
Gig Length: 30 - 60 minutes
What to Expect
I put on shows tuned to the audience I performed for. I can go from a church podium to a corporate event to a all out adult club. I can do clean,gospel,and adult comedy. Mixed crowd or all white,black . I do not pick on audience members . My show is 30% based on comparison of the races and how funny we all are. I have always been asked back after all performances I have ever done.
McKinley “Grave Digger” Bryson was born funny. His parents say he had one tooth at birth. While attending school he was always picked for all school plays and everything concerning entertainment.
After finishing school he entered the U.S Air Force where he met “Sinbad” and they became friends. He was prompted by Sinbad to pursue comedy. He entered several Air Force competitions and always won in his category. After retiring in 1993 he started touring extensively, opening for such people as Miguel Nunez from “Life” and “Juawana Man”; Sleepy Floyd; Reggie “Broman” Ballard; Cocoa Brown; Kat Williams,Chris Thomas; Michael Winslow; J. Smooth; Nick Lewis; Charles Walden; Willie & Woody; D.S. Sanders; JB Smooth; Cee Jay , Shaun Jones, Bubba Ice , Byrdman ,Hurricane, and many more.
