Demis is known for his ability to entertain with music as well as comedy. According to his online biography, Demis began his entertainment career as a singer and songwriter. He began as the leader of many successful bands that performed nationally. Always a bit of a jokester and looking for the funny stuff in life, he started interacting with the audience in between songs.
Eventually going solo, Demis evolved into more of a comedian than a musician. Within a few years, he began to establish a statewide and national reputation for his hilarious live performances. He has opened for the Kingston Trio at the legendary Copa Room in the Sands Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.
Demis weaves both music and comedy in his shows, as well as an ability to involve any audience in the act. When he isn’t making corporate America laugh, he still finds time to lend his talents to worthy causes such as Children’s Hospital, Race for the Cure, Special Olympics and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
