Drey Tobin Dailey ()

Drey Tobin Dailey is the third son of Army Ranger/Aviator Dell Lee Dailey, whose callsign was “Dogface,” referring to the gritty, battle-ready, dog faced infantrymen of WWII.  “Dogface” was a nickname given to Dell to describe his stern, solemn demeanor on the Field of Battle.  Old Dogface flew missions for the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, also called “The Nightstalkers,” during the Cold War and the first Gulf Conflict.  Drey inherited his father’s tenacity and thirst for action, as well as the physical characteristics of Dell’s canine-esque nickname. Apparently, defying logic, genetics, and all around science, that IS possible.  Drey did not, however, receive his old man’s sense of humor, or desire to follow the rules, which, according to Dogface, “He gets from his mother.”

At a young age, Dave Dailey, Drey’s older brother, informed Little Dogface that Drey was adopted from a local pack of feral wolves.  While this news cleared up his extreme hairiness and penchant for biting people when caught in a jam, it didn’t explain why he preferred to stray away from the pack, find his own way, and pursue a career that was completely foreign and bewildering to the rest of his family.  Those close to Drey expected him to follow in his father’s footsteps, but Drey was to become…

A Stand Up Comedian.  He would strive to be a beast on stage, rather than on a battlefield; killing with crowds of humor-seekers, not killing commies with heat-seekers.

Drey Tobin Dailey picked up the microphone in February 2009, at the ripe age of 21.  He had taken a Stand Up Comedy class at the DC Improv under the tutelage of 20-year comedy veteran and wildly hilarious Matt Kazam.  Prior to the course, Drey had been a student at the University of Florida, and was a Brother of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity, until the tyrannical and puritanical Board of Standards respectfully demanded that Drey “reevaluate his educational goals.” Drey’s last words to the Dean that day were “Sorry for partying!” as he slammed the door shut and left the Sunshine State for good, never looking back, and just a few credits short of graduating.  Ironically, “Sorry for partying…” was the same thing he said to his parents as he moved back into their basement, with his dream in one pocket and his college degreeless hand in the other.

After hitting the stage for the first time, Drey found his calling.  A thrilling rush coursed through his veins while performing in a room of complete and total strangers.  But the thrill left a pit in his soul that could only be filled with laughter and applause, both of which he receives daily, in varying doses. 

Drey’s comedic style is sharp and satirical, but never cynical.  His observations are a unique perspective of everyday events, issues, and occurrences.  He brings edge to self-deprecation and always appreciates a good laugh when he’s not the one dishing them out.  His comedic influences are two of the greats: Jerry Seinfeld, and Chris Rock; two powerful performers, whose styles are completely different, but both command their audiences with orders to laugh, and laugh hard.  THAT is an ability that Drey admires and respects, while striving to emulate. 

Drey has been known to tell a joke for a free drink, as well as twist an ankle on the dance floor trying to impress a pretty young lady.  You can find Drey Tobin Dailey performing all over DC and Virginia, and he is eagerly anticipating the opportunity to fill all of your comedic needs. Drey is also the Quizmasater every Tuesday Night at 19th in DC for GWD.

6 teams: Tebow is on Our Team, Eggies, Baldy, IMF, Kay and Sara, and Helen Keller.  Eggies, Baldy, and IMF walked out of the quiz.  Tebow won.  Helen Keller was the bar staff.  Kay and Sara were 2 young ladies who walked in late and knew a lot about cakes.  Also, they were sexy.  Goodbye.

Big nights come with small groups. Tuesday’s Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at the 19th in downtown Washington, DC proved just that: you don’t need a crowd to have a party.

 

With just three teams competing, the first quiz of the year brought new players to the table for what could be the best year of quizzing ever. We laughed, we heckled, we drank and everyone won something. Not bad Obi-Wan Kenobi, not bad.

 

If there was a sad note it was the fact that “It’s My Birthday Bitch” didn’t take first prize. It is always nice when the birthday girl or boy wins on their big day but even better when it’s a birthday girl. And last night’s birthday celebration was all about the girl . . . who didn’t win the quiz but did win one more number to her age. Cheers!

 

Team M&M, our winners, was a very engaged twosome who did better than they had expected – way better. Since their first place prize was a 19th Bar gift certificate, we are sure to see them again; whether it be for quiz or another fantastic 19th Bar event.

 

Team Elawh was our third team and while not as productive in terms of points, this twosome brought a lot of character and comic relief to the quizmaster, who was scoring their sheets. Eventually Team Elawh tapered-off and didn’t complete the competition. They were really lost in conversation and with their early departure, one can only assume the evening turned out pretty well for those two.

 

We think Drey returns next week. Or perhaps it will be Dracy? Since he’s been gone for a month, rumors of jail time or a sex-change operation have been fueled by unknown parties. Tune in next week.

Once again The 19th Bar was the site of good friends, good food and some good quizzing. Yeah, I said quizzing. Of course there was some drinking but that’s an assumed practice when you are at the bar, in DC, on a Tuesday night. I mean – really: what else is there to do in DC on a Tuesday night?

So, here we were, at the 19th, with DC’s only Geeks Who Drink venue operating at full steam on the said Tuesday night, at the able hands of yours truly, who is filling-in for Drey.

And filling-in is welcomed as my regular venue in Del Ray has been renovating for what seems like years. I was feeling a bit rusty but having hosted the 19th before, I knew what to expect: great staff, great customers and a crappy commute.

We had eight teams who started the night but as is typical in the DC scene, folks hooked-up and left early. Thirty-Year Facility was the first to bolt. And they were doing pretty well but other organs (besides their brains) were calling. <high five chaps!>

My Tight End was next to drop and I was sorry I didn’t see them go. Could it be that 30-Year Facility and My Tight End are a thing? It’s possible.

But for our remaining six teams, we did what Drey told us to do and quizzed our asses off. Red, blue and communist, we all partied at the 19th and did so with knowledge, pencils and the occasional iphone (shhh, Drey isn’t here, I won’t tell).

Ugg, I Quizzed My Pants had clearly quizzed their pants before. They won. Like the third-place winner, A is for Awkward, I Quizzed had this “team creep” thing going on. They both started with like two players and then ballooned to 15 each in the matter of three rounds. Team, You Don’t Look Like Librarians, didn’t seem to mind. This five-person crew cleaned up with a second-place win.

The Tunisian Reivers, however, did notice the size of the other teams and commented on them in the way a Frenchman might comment on the treatment they are receiving from foreign occupiers: not quite pissed but not quite happy.

Quietly, I rooted for the Basement Dwellers. This lovely twosome played hard, laughed and plotted the death and dismemberment of all those who beat them. Lovely, lovely girls – really.

Revenge of the IFC Nerds technically didn’t complete the quiz as some members of the team left after round six, leaving the others to cry tears in their beer – or something like that. They just didn’t have the will to play when their lead answer-provider received a call from team Tight End (just speculating as to why the lead-answer-provider left early but it’s a solid theory).

My very sincere thank you to the 19th Bar. As always, you make me feel welcome and that’s nice because my kids hate me.

Speaking of Doritos, to better understand this guy who is filling in for Drey, please see my entry to the Doritos, Crash the Super Bowl contest. I look great and I hope you agree.

Next Tuesday, 7pm, 19th Bar – be here and bring friends who know the Periodic Table of Elements better than you did.
