The Great Luke Ski: comedy music for pop-culture geeks
At Dragon*Con 2004, Dr. Demento declared “the great Luke Ski” to be his radio / internet program’s “Most Requested Artist of the 21st Century”. Since then, Luke held onto that title by having songs on “The Dr. Demento Show’s” annual year-end “Funny 25” countdown of his most requested songs of the year for 18 years in a row, including five of them at #1 (“Peter Parker” 2002, “Stealing Like A Hobbit” 2003, “Snoopy The Dogg” 2011, “Fake Adult” 2014, “Candybars” 2017). His song parodies, originals, stand-up and sketches about pop culture phenomena have made him a favorite performer at science-fiction and fandom conventions all across the Midwest and beyond. He’s released 12 albums over the past 27 years, including songs about Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Spider-Man, Star Trek, Pirates of the Caribbean, Batman, Doctor Who, Disney buying Marvel & Lucasfilm, and a few video game themed tracks about Q*bert, Cruis’n USA, PokeMon, and MarioKart.
Luke Ski was also a storyboard artist, revisionist, & writer on Cartoon Network’s “Mighty MagiSwords”, created by Kyle A. Carrozza. He also got to write episodes and songs, as well as be a voice actor for some of the characters on the show, including Skullivan, Docky Boardman, Nyando, Number Nine, Cattus the Oneblade, and Pugcake. “Mighty Magiswords” is available to purchase on iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, & Google Play.
