After developing his latest project at Telepictures Productions, Vance Degeneres is all set to launch a new news parody website. It would be interesting to see what king of news website, a former vocalist with a stupid band can launch. See Vance Degeneres photos, biography, and confession video here.
Better known as comedian actress Ellen Degeneres‘ brother, Vance Degeneres is a performer, producer, and writer of several television shows. His folks are Elliot DeGeneres, a salesman, and Elizabeth (Betty) Jane Pfeffer.
Vance DeGeneres was a correspondent on The Daily Show from 1999 to 2001. DeGeneres would occasionally present a feature done in the style of a Dateline NBC report, known as “Tale of Survival.” In it, a trivial incident was reported as if it had been dangerous and serious, such as the time a cat was stuck in a tree for over a week.
Between pre-filmed portions, DeGeneres would appear in the studio hiding behind various set decorations or apparatus, describing the events in greater frightful detail.
In 1998, he played keyboards for the New Orleans-based band Cowboy Mouth. In March 2006, he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show with Cowboy Mouth to perform their song “The Avenue.”
In December 2006, he became the permanent rhythm guitarist in Cowboy Mouth, but left in September 2007 to pursue additional TV projects. He does play guitar on their 2007 Live DVD The Name of the Band is Cowboy Mouth.
Vance has left Cowboy Mouth since then and is on to bigger things… like painting! He’s all set to unveil his first art exhibition in New York.
