Like a slug of Jack Daniels after one too many Appletinis, Dwight York's Quickies is a palate-cleansing dose of pure, distilled comedy. York skips the meandering and navel-gazing that too often passes for stand-up, instead breathing fresh life into the good old-fashioned one-liner. As he puts it, 'I hope you like jokes, because here we go!' Thanks to this stage veteran's well-honed act and aww-shucks delivery, York's generally 'adult'material feels quick-witted rather than rapid-fire. He elegantly weaves classic call-backs throughout, tying each seemingly standalone gem into a coherent and ludicrous whole. With occasional nods to a (perhaps mythical) seeing-eye dog and the memory-dulling effects of certain recreational substances, he peppers his set with enough recurring themes to provide surprise bonus-laughs, even in the midst of his punchline marathon. York's comedy brings to mind a number of famous comedians - the dry wit of Steven Wright, the drug humor of Mitch Hedberg, and the filthy but endearing wordplay of George Carlin all seem to make appearances - but, in the end, stands as its own uniquely funny voice. It just happens to be a voice giving you ideas on how to creatively use chewing gum to encourage your lady to try out a Brazilian wax. The author of The Vile File, a collection of jokes even this raunchy headliner saw as too depraved for the stage, Yorkís catching on as a raw new outlaw of comedy.
