CLARKSDALE, MISSISSIPPI  VIDEO IN POST  – Steve Kolbus, former standup comic for 22+ years, is now a fixture in Clarksdale. He moved here and opened a restaurant called Tricia’s Italian Eatery and Pie Hole which is sadly now closed.

It was a first for Clarksdale to have a pie hole! Poor William tends to have a field day when you bring it up. Just ask him about Tricia’s Pie Hole next time you see him.

Kolbus is one of our many colorful characters in Clarksdale. Steve is a clever songwriter. Today, in fact, he told me he spends his free time doing crossword puzzles. Steve, I’d of never figured you for a crossword puzzle kind of guy but then again, you do have a way with the English language.

Watch these two RAW and UNCUT videos of Steve Kolbus 

  1. “Titties and Chicken Wings” – performed at Tricia’s Italian Eatery and Pie Hole, November 2009 – This was the first time Poor William and I saw Steve perform live.
  2. “Shelby Woman” – aka “She Tried to Ditch Me by Faking Her Own Death” – performed at Ground Zero Blues Club, January 2013

Steve performs regularly around town and when at Ground Zero Blues Club hosting the Jam Night on Thursday he makes a very entertaining and fun loving MC.

Steve is one of the nicest people I have ever known.

Oh, and be sure to buy one of his CD’s the next time you see him out washing windows or selling his wares or doing his music. We love ya, Steve.

Lyrics “Titties and Chicken Wings”
By Steve Kolbus

I like titties with my chicken wings
Some folks like them chicken wings with hot sauce
I like mine with mounds of mammaries

I like the way your titties jiggle when you bring me my chicken wings
I like the way your titties jiggle when you bring me my chicken wings
I like to smother your titties in hot sauce and like the nipples clean

Now if you’re a really nice lady you’re probably disgusted right about now
Now if you’re a really nice lady you’re probably disgusted right about now
But I don’t need no really nice lady bringing me my chicken wings anyhow

Let’s all go down to Hooters, I want some titties, I want your titties with my chicken wings
Let’s all go down to Hooters, I want some titties with my chicken wings
Some folks like their chicken wings with hot sauce
I like mine with mounds of mammaries

 

Lyrics “Shelby Woman” – aka “She Tried to Ditch Me by Faking Her Own Death”
By Steve Kolbus

Well I remember the first time she looked at me
Her eyes got big and she said “Woo hoo wee”
She barked like a dog and meowed like a cat
She made my heart go pitty pat
But just as quick as she took my breath
She tried to ditch me by faking her own death

When she crashed her car and lost half her brain
But she was still smart enough to drive me insane
If I had half a brain my own self
I would have put our relationship up on a shelf
But just as quick as she took my breath
She tried to ditch me by faking her own death

She used to make some people uptight
When one eye went to the left and the other to the right
Who’d of thought that a woman of mine
Woulda turned out to be such a Frankenstein
And just as quick as she took my breath
She tried to ditch me by faking her own death

    Nice to see my friend, Marcos Chiappe, in the Delta Bohemian!!! Love this article on Steve – I agree with you completely. Knew him before he came to settle in Clarksdale. Great and talented man!

  2. Marcos….our newest Delta Bohemian! We miss him already!

    Clarksdale is fortunate to have Steve here with us. When he is on the bill at Ground Zero, he adds a warmth that blesses everyone! He knows how to work a microphone, too! 🙂
