Poonanny 

Self described "Blues Comedian" Joe Poonanny was at first a drummer and club manager before getting on stage and doing his act comprised of humorous songs and monologue. Born in Birmingham, Alabama, Poonanny didn't release any music until signing with Malaco subsidiary Waldoxy Records in 1993. His first LP, "Poonanny Be Still" featured mostly song parodies of chitlin' circuit favorites like Bobby Rush's "Be Still", Tyrone Davis' "Mom's Apple Pie" (re-titled "Mamma Tell A Lie"). The formula worked and four more LPs on Poonanny were released by waldoxy before Poonanny went independent with his own venture in 2007.
