At age 19, Vic Dunlop was drafted into the Army and it was there that he honed his comedy. Vic thought that his “slight obesity” and flat feet would spare him a junket to Vietnam, but the Army happily accommodated him . As a result, he was sent to the Army “fat farm”. “We were forced to wear pink armbands to separate us from the skinnier recruits. I learned to laugh at the absurdity of it all”.
Dunlop completed his stint in the Army and was offered a future as an accountant with an oil company. After two months he bailed out. “It was just too tie and jacket for me”. After doing a number of odd jobs he started a comedy group with his brother and three friends. Called “Natural Gas”, this improvisational comedy group appeared frequently at the Comedy Store in Hollywood and was, later, hired as the comedy regulars on “Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert”.
Vic next won 3rd place in the Los Angeles Stand-Up competition and landed a two year deal with “Make Me Laugh”. Vic has appeared in “Meatballs II”, “The Devil and Max Devlin”, and “Skateboard USA”. He is truly a man for all seasons…an actor, comedian, inventor, and entrepreneur. His talent and drive are as endless as his creativity.
