Uncle Yo

Karl "Uncle Yo" Custer is New York's premiere geek-specific comedian, having appeared at over 50 anime, comic book and video game conventions. His self-proclaimed style of "rantcore" combines long-form stories with motivational rhyming couplets. Panel leader, emcee, playwright, puppeteer and podcaster, Yo show-runs his original Youtube’s fantasy sitcom with puppets, Dungeon Crawlers.

His entire 4-CD collection is available through Amazon, iTunes, and streaming on Spotify. Alternatively, you can spot him in several cameos alongside Channel Awesome, where he was featured alongside the Nostalgia Critic, Demo Reel, and the channel's 5th anniversary feature, DragonBored. For older kids, you can see him as corporate, flower-loving super-villain Jeff Regan on Youtube's raunchy, suburban super-hero series, Schnoz-Man and HolePunch: the Justice Lease. You can hear him voicing all nine dogs and trainers for Pretty Smart Games’ mobile release, Top Dog: Lucky’s Charm.

This fall, Yo will be featured within the Rochester Fringe Festival at the Geva Theatre in a new, one-man comedy show, The Geek Inherit the Earth.
