Doc Circe


Comedian Doc Circe played the Delabar (now a Vietnamese restaurant) in Albany back in January, 1970. The Sounds of Music provided tunes.

Probably the most vulgar comedian I have ever seen or heard. And definitely the most clever funniest comedian I have ever seen.

I remember watching Doc Circe regularly at the Showboat on Rte 22in New Lebanon NY while I was in the service circa 1959-1961.

we remember Doc after enjoying his musical humour severeal times at the club in Vaudreuil. I thought it was Larry Moakins but maybe not.

Would anyone have the lyrics to docs version of I walk the line or I held my pants up with a piece of twine

Doc Circe, self-proclaimed as 'New York's favourite Playboy' played for many years in the Montreal area. First at a club called Larry Moquin's in Ste Anne de Bellevue. After it burned he played for many years at the Vaudreuil Inn in Dorion as well as the Edgewater in Pointe Claire, which was torn down.

His humour was definitely off-colour, but he always prided himself in NEVER using four-letter words.

Always laughed till my stomach hurt.

I also saw Doc Circe at the Showboat in New Lebanon. We were 18 year old kids that crossed over from Ma. so we could drink. It was so risque, but such fun. Does anyone know where I can read a Bio on him?

My father Frank Fogarty was Doc's drummer for years. First, at a hotel in Massena, New York in the 60's and later at The Vaudreuil Inn and The Edgewater Hotel in Quebec Canada.

I had the pleasure of being the drummer/singer in Mickey Cee and the Unusual Forum ushering in 1971 on New Years Eve at the Tommy Hakim's Delabar on Central Ave. in Albany with Doc Circe, a great, friendly and talented man. He had me stay up and do his rimshots during his routine. Part of his routine was confusing the drummer, which wasn't difficult in those days. I remember his "Walk the Line" bit well.
