Why Don Geronimo is an Asshole

So Nationally Syndicated, oops wait, not anymore, so local Sacramento DJ Don Geronimo came to see a show where I was the feature on Saturday in Galt. He showed up late, brought friends who talked and texted through the whole show while he kept going outside and smoking. Today he started talking smack about me on the air. When I replied by Twitter he went into overdrive and tried to savage me on his radio show.

I'm a guy with a day job. An amateur comic. I'm really pleased with the progress I've made artistically and career wise in the past year but I still have not shed my amateur standing. I will continue to work hard. I'm really proud of the people even greener than me who I have encouraged and helped. There are of course young comics who haven't impressed me but I wish them the best and I hope they get better just as I hope I get better. Why a guy who is a professional would go after an amateur is beyond me.

He claims he's done stand up but I'd like to see him survive just twenty minutes at Punchline or The Improv on a showcase night with a crowd that isn't made up of his radio fans.

If he's done it he KNOWS how hard it is to do a show in a place like Galt. Nobody is stoked at Galt. The two nights before that gig I was on the bill with Doug Stanhope. Those were dream gigs. Galt was work. But I did my best and despite being way mismatched to the crowd I did great. How do I measure this? The audience response was great. I sold lots of merch which was totally unexpected and the owner had a cigar with me and told me he was getting great feedback on the show. You'd think an experienced comedian would get how tough a gig like that is.

So he's an asshole for talking shit on me to begin with but he's a much bigger asshole for hanging up on me when I called in. I was set to be civil and just to try and prove that I could go toe to toe and keep up. I wanted a fair opportunity to address his attacks and, it would've given him the opportunity to best me and show that he was right. But no, he was a coward, hung up on me and went on talking smack.

He is an asshole and a coward because when face to face with us he accepted our swag, shook our hands and told us he enjoyed us. When called out on this he just insulted said swag, lying and saying my CD was hand made. Have a look on Amazon, it's not. What he didn't do was explain why he was a coward and a liar when actually in our presence.

He is an asshole because he lied again. The venue never listed me as an atheist comedian. I don't perform as an atheist comedian except when hired to do so, when on The Coexist? Comedy Tour or when I'm the headliner. Most headliners don't want the feature doing material as potentially divisive as religion before their set.

He is the biggest asshole though because when he played my clip he inserted cricket noises to make it sound like I wasn't getting huge laughs but he's a stupid asshole because he didn't cut soon enough and you can HEAR that the joke gets a huge laugh. Here's the clip he sampled if you'd like to see for yourself.



He's an asshole and a sellout because he talked mad shit on Good Day Sacramento until they hired him. Wow, there's integrity for you.

So, this has-been on his way down wants to fuck with me on my way up. Cool. I don't start fights and everyone who knows me sees how I try really hard to encourage people and to be positive but this guy is just a prick and I look forward to letting people know it.

Oh, and here is a clip of him with a tore up face because he hasn't even mastered staying on the stage. My WORST nights in comedy haven't left me looking this bad Don, you fucking hack piece of shit.

You're both funny. Just leave it at that and move on. All this bickering is making you both look like little high school girls.

1. He started it.
2. He is the one who hid, hanging up on me.

But thanks for saying I'm funny. Always nice to hear.

In all honesty, the hanging up on you was hilarious. Rude by social standards, but fucking hilarious.

Then you have a sophomoric sense of humor. Hanging up on someone was hilarious when I was twelve, now I stay on and use my skills.

Looking at these comments you've been making on btoh this site and others, you seem to be bi-polar and very pety. Don has talent. Calling him unfunny and insulting his audience just shows how much this upsets and hurts you.

Hey Man, can't you see this for what it is...great publicity? How many people who didn't know who you were are checking you out now? And Don G fans can think and decide for themselves, unlike Rush Limbaugh-type fans. I have been a huge fan of Don for years...and now you are on my radar too. Buck up, camper, this is great for you.

"Don, you fucking hack piece of shit."

my thoughts exactly! I met him in front of a Best Buy for a sports 1140 satellite, he seemed odorous and lethargic.

Jesus, let it go already. You are coming across as a little obsessive and unstable. I'd spend more time worrying about your own career with that thin, almost parchment-like skin of yours.

Also, you and your awesomely mature, super hip "let's troll on the INTERNET!" friends commenting on the "dongeronimoshow" facebook page should know that's fan-run and it not read, commented on, or endorsed by your precious.

You are a petty and weak individual. You have been a pariah on the scene in Sacramento for years and when someone gives you a little gruff, you act like a GIANT PUSSY!! You are not funny. You are not cool. You will never be more than a middling comic in Galt... Keep your day job because you define amateur.

Dude, enjoy the free publicity and move on. Saying "he started it" makes you look even MORE like a jilted high school girl. Having your friends try to attack his fb page is like something 16 years olds do. You actually seem like a funny guy, but the more you act like this, the more you're going to turn off potential fans like myself. It's hard to attack someone's sophomoric humor when the way you and your friends are acting is sophomoric itself.

Lol, your career is where don's was when don was 16. I take it you will never sign a million dollar contract.

It's a shame that ass-face Geronimo would resort to tweeting Joan Rivers to berate you on the upcoming concert. It totally shows what a total amateur fucking dickhead idiot he truly is. Knock 'em dead !!

Oh, Keith, do not worry, Don did give his blessing for us to go "after" you. Just because we have not sent you a million posts on the internets does not mean we are not going to be around, there are more mediums to get to you other than the internet, there is finding you in public, perhaps outside your many bigtime gigs with your "ones" of fans. WE will be around. Some of us like do our trash talking face to face...Are you supposed to jump off the Golden GAte already? I need a good laugh

Anonymous said...

Hey Keith, I would dig up Richard Pryor and put his corpse onstage and he would still be funnier than you will ever be. Can't you just try to be funny? Let me help you with your act. Try this, just come out and take a shit onstage, and let your feces finish your gig for you. I am sure your morning shit is funnier than you.

Are you just a liar, or a dumb ass? TELL us,, are you really opening for Joan Rivers? I hear you are not, and thank GOD for Joan rivers, for how she could have followed you after your blazing set of constant funny and hilarity is beyond me.

Have we gotten to the point of physical threats over a comedian trying to defend himself? Yikes!

Anonymous said...

ARe you serious about being a comedian? Let me help you out, try clown college, you have a better chance, albeit slimmer chance of making 1-5 year olds laugh at a backyard party in EAst PAlo ALto than any of the adult audience that DON GERONIMO already has and has had for years in his still very successful career. Try your talents at a old folk's home. That may be your target audience right there.

Anonymous said...

"Physical Threats...", come on ,give me a break, He attempts to get in front of a audience on his many big time gigs, for face to face meetings, so to speak. If he can dish it out in front of people's faces Keith should be able to take the same in return. We are all adults here just making fun of a WANNA-BE and physical violence does not even enter into the equation. verbal humiliation is much more gratifying. Quit reading into it so much"YIKES".

Harmless, yeah, you are right though, these are just words i am blabbing here. For those words to you are harmless, they just go in one of your ears and out the other. But, to your sensitive hero, Keith, mr. thin skin, these same words are not harmless. That is a fact. Joan Rivers even commented on his lack of a sense of humor, which in itself is funny, a amateur comedian, such as you aspire to be Keith, with no sense of humor? Ironic, huh?

For those telling me to thicken my skin, thanks for the concern. I'm fine. I'm actually enjoying this. Fighting back is not the same as crying and licking your wounds.
Don should be embarrassed at letting an obscure comedian get so much of his time and attention. The more he talks about how little I am, the more pathetic it is that he's going after me.
As for me, what do I have to lose? Most of his more rabid fans would never have liked my material anyway and I'm getting all kinds of exposure to people who wouldn't have heard of me. You'd be amazed how many emails and letter I've gotten praising the youtube clip with the knock-knock joke.
I'm doing an interview with a college station in Maine this week (way more my audience) and I've been interviewed by two different print publications so far. Thanks Don, couldn't have done it without you.
As for Joan Rivers, yes, I'm HUGELY disappointed but the gig was cancelled Monday morning long before Don's idiocy toward me kicked into high gear. Turns out she's bringing her own opening act. The promoter has another show for me which I'm very excited about. More details as it gets confirmed.

To the more rabid of Don's fans, stop for a minute and think for yourselves. What did I really do here?
1. I did a comedy show where I tried my best. Don didn't like it but I certainly gave it my all. Hell for the sake of this argument lets go ahead and say I sucked. So that's crime one, not being a good comic but trying hard anyway as I chase my dreams.

2. I defended myself when Don decided to insult me AND the other comics who I know as a fact did great, on air.

That's it. I did a crappy comedy act (Not according to the crowd who bought out my CDs but in Don's opinion) and I defended myself from someone who makes a living attacking people.

Come on now. I'm just a guy trying to be the best father, husband and comic he can, in that order. I'm not a bad person. What would you have done in my shoes? Maybe not the same thing, but do I deserve this level of hate? I didn't do anything violent or racist. I wasn't cruel to the downtrodden. I just defended myself when a talk radio guy attacked me. Period.

KEITH, I am the dude, well one of them anyway who is having a bit of fun. YOu want to truly know why that is? Alot of Don's fans have been fans for a long time. We have been with him thru think and thin. And we are bound to him in a way, hell we are a loyal bunch, and when one of our own is fucked with, you better damn well know we have his back no matter what.WE did not like your act, it sucked. Don thought it sucked, that was his opinion, mine too.If you did not suck we would not be having these instances of justified verbal abuse.

Tell you what, Keith...when you have as many fans nationwide as Don has in a tiny town like Galt, then maybe you can take him on.

On an unrelated note, change your Twitter avatar. The headpiece on that banana costume looks like a Klansman's hood.

mr_kook99 said...

U are now blocked, uh Keith? Regardless of what you think of Don's career, still a pretty lucrative and successful one still, he does have some connections, as did Joan Rivers. If you had just rolled with it, took the criticism like a man, you may have been onto something, in the sense that, well just think about this...possibilities. There could have been possibilities. But, alas Douchebag, you have to have comedic talent for there to be any real possibilities. Hell, you might be a nice guy, truth though, the comedy sucked and your insecurities shined right through your ruse in the face of a little jab.

Anonymous said...

The thing to remember is that the ones defending Don are his fans. Fanatics. If you look that word up for synonyms, you'll find things such as hothead, bigots, crazy, freak, etc. The important comments are the ones that give you honest criticism and provide useful feedback, not mindless babbling about who is funnier. Screw the words without reason and continue doing your best. You're very funny and I would've been one of the people to buy out your CD had I went.
