Still trying to be a serious musician, he started performing his funny songs at coffee shops and small venues around Los Angeles. “People really enjoyed it, and started asking if I performed anywhere else or if I had a CD. They never asked that about my other music, so I thought ‘maybe I’ll run with this for a while.’ ” Today his set is approximately half music, half traditional stand-up but still follows the same comedic approach he’s always had. “I’ve always been into making fun of things in general. If I see something, I always think, ‘it would be fun to do a funny version of that.’ I’ve always gravitated toward satire.” Go Bananas, Montgomery.
