It’s National Gorilla Suit Day!

Posted by keithosaunders on January 31, 2019

National Gorilla suit day was created by Mad magazine artist, Don Martin. [Per wikipedia] In 1963,  Martin published National Gorilla Suit Day in a collection Don Martin Bounces Back, in which Fester Bestertester mocks the (then fictitious) concept of a National Gorilla Suit Day, and suffers a series of incredible assaults from gorillas and other creatures in gorilla and other suits.  It is always celebrated on January 31st.

John Tendy, who is a friend of mine, and a great tenor saxophonist from New York, along with his friend, recording engineer, Danny DiPaula, create an annual Gorilla Suit Day special which they post to youtube.  These are two of the funniest people I know and I am proud to present to you this year’s offering, which, if I do say so myself, is up to their usual top-notch standards.

Enjoy!

Happy National Gorilla Suit Day!

Posted by keithosaunders on January 31, 2017

This is actually a real thing, created by Mad magazine artist, Don Martin. Each year my buddy from New York – sax player extraordinaire and general bon vivant, John Tendy – and his friend, Dan DiPaolo,  produce a video extravaganza to be released on January 31st.

Every year the production values increase as Dan and John strive to bring you the utmost in quality content.  You can search some of their previous years efforts on youtube under Ibar Fridays or National Gorilla Suit Day.

 

Enjoy, and remember…stay safe!
