Beginning in the Connecticut music scene in 2001, DJ REAL moved to the Bay Area, where he has been gaining recognition in San Francisco’s eclectic music and comedy circuits. He was most recently featured in the 2008 and 2009 San Francisco Sketch Festivals, and is a part of the monthly comedy showcase, Things We Made, in San Francisco.
