“The Great Luke Ski”, otherwise known as Luke Sienkowski, writes, records and performs comedy music on a variety of pop culture subjects ranging from Lord of the Rings and Star Wars to Spider-Man and Keanu Reeves. Luke has enjoyed repeated success on “the Dr Demento Show”, by taking top honors with the #1 most requested songs of both 2002 (“Peter Parker”) and 2003 (“Stealing Like a Hobbit”), making him the first artist in 20 years to have the #1 song for two years in a row, as well as garnering him the position of “Dr. Demento’s Most Requested Artist of the 21st Century”. Luke’s music has also been heard on ManCow’s Morning Madhouse and various college and morning shows across the country. Since 1996, Luke has released 5 albums, Fanboys ‘n da Hood (1996), Shadows of the Bunghole (1997), Carpe Dementia (1999), Uber Geek (2002), and Worst Album Ever (2003). His sixth album, “Unconventional” will be released in the summer of 2005.
LukeSki’s hilarious use of props and costumes while performing his parodies have made him a fan favorite at many ScienceFiction and Gaming Conventions, including GenCon Indy and Star Wars Celebration (Indianapolis), GenCon SoCal (Anaheim), Dragon*Con (Atlanta), MarCon and Origins (Columbus), MarsCon and ConVergence (Minneapolis), WindyCon, CapriCon, DucKon, 2BCon-Tinued, and HalloweeM (Chicago), Odyssey Con and FilmCon (Madison), Archon (St. Louis), PenguiCon (Detroit), TolCon (Seattle), Gamefest (Milwaukee), Uny-Con (Rochester), FarPoint (Baltimore), ConGlomeration (Louisville), and BashCon (Toledo). Luke has also performed at numerous showings of the “RockyHorrorPictureShow” across the Midwest, at The King Club in downtown Madison, WI, and at the college campuses of Lawrence University (Appleton, WI), Binghamton University (NY) and Notre Dame University (South Bend, IN). In 2005, Luke is looking forward to visiting MilleniCon (Cincinnati), MidSouthCon (Memphis), and ConCarolinas (Charlotte) for the first time.
In addition to comedy music, LukeSki is also an artist, specializing in caricatures and cartooning. He draws caricatures at the Ed Debevic’s restaurants in Chicago (downtown & Lombard), as well as at many private functions. He is available for birthday parties, weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, and Klingon Rite of Passage Rituals.
Luke resides in Madison, WI, with his good friend and roommate Stephanie Wild, and two cats named Judy Meow and Joss Numfar. When home, Luke enjoys playing with his TiVo, singing Karaoke, trying to keep up with movies, and finding new reasons to hang out at Kinko’s.
