The Underground Experience Presents Singer/Songwriter/Author Mr. Charles Locke & Actor/Comedian/Songwriter Mr. Chris Valenti!
Wednesday 4/4/12 4pm (PST) on KCLA & Thursday 4/5/12 9am (PST)/9pm (PST) on KLED Live
Charles Locke began playing piano at the age of 12, the guitar at 14 and before graduating high school in Boston he had already written over 300 songs. And now, more than 4000 original songs later, he is still writing everyday as effortlessly as breathing. He has also written 4 books and for the last 3 years he has been writing celebrity stories every month for a magazine sold in New England and New York City.
He has played guitar and sang with Jesse Ed Davis (who played on some of John Lennon’s solo albums), Tom Petty, Paul Simon, Gene Clark from the Byrds, Spencer Davis, Buddy Miles; he sang “We are the World” on the stage with Michael Jackson live on TV at the Grammy’s and he has worked with everyone from Brittany Spears, Mariah Carey and Johnny Cash to Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones.
Words of wisdom. If you’re in school and they ask you to prove the law of gravity, throw the teacher out the window ((*o^)) !!! Have a great day! (unless you made other plans) … Sincerely … Charles Locke
If you‘ve ever been frustrated by a relationship and you have a distorted, but healthy sense of humor, then Chris Valenti is the comic for you. Chris tells jokes and performs songs that ring painfully and hilariously true to anyone who has ever attempted dating.
On his new musical comedy album, LIVE EMOTIONAL WRECKAGE, released by New Wave Dynamics, Valenti shares stories of struggles, blunders, and missed opportunities we all endure. His songs tackle politics – “I Want To Be Your Intern, Female President Clinton”, technology – “Please Don’t Text Someone While I’m Making Love To You”, and he even festively released a upbeat single for Christmas for the lonely entitled “Single For Christmas.“ His live show is part music, part comedy, part therapy, and part romance as well as action, adventure, mystery and sometimes horror. A philosopher of love usually, the kind of love that did not exactly make it to that ‘happily ever after‘ place.
A hopeful romantic with a wry sense of humor, Chris has the knack for using self-deprecation and vulnerability to weave stories about the hazards and frustrations of love and attempted relationships. He‘s become the cheerful motivator for the unlucky in love, because the best cure for a broken heart is laughing at someone else‘s.
Chris is also an actor and filmmaker. Remember the Da Da Da – Sunday Afternoon Volkswagen commercial? Well that was Chris Valenti driving. He also appeared in the feature film “17 Again,“ and has written, produced, and starred in two feature films, including multi-festival award winner, “Sensitive Johnson,“ a romantic comedy about a tenderhearted musician with a premature ejaculation problem. Chris has made dozens of award winning short films for FunnyOrDie.com.
