Devo Spice is a nerdy comedy rapper from New Jersey who has been called “the red-headed stepson of ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic and Eminem.” He performs regularly across the country at science fiction conventions, music clubs, and comedy clubs. His live show features videos and animations synchronized with the music.
Devo Spice has become a popular artist on The Dr. Demento Show. Devo has had ten #1 songs on the show. In 2007—while still performing as “Sudden Death,” the comedy-rap group he founded—Devo held the #1, #2, and #4 positions for most requested songs of the year, and was a guest vocalist on song #5.
The Anarchist’s Jokebook, his newest album, includes several songs which were hits on The Dr. Demento Show, including “Nothin’ but Truth,” “Gravity Is Stupid,” and “Spider Verses,” the #1 most requested song of 2019.
The Logan Whitehurst Memorial Award for Excellence in Comedy Music is awarded each year and Devo Spice has won four of them. In 2015, Devo won for “Snack Bar” (parody) and in 2018 he won for “Just for You” (original). Then in 2021, he won two more awards. “Zoom Meeting” (parody) and “Spider Verses” (video).
