Deece Casilias


Deece Casillas grew up in Los Angeles, CA. After a stint of open mics and improv comedy, he decided to combine his love of writing and all things funny into scripting and filming sketch comedy. Although not having the itch most comedians have to perform on stage, he still had the angst of a comedian and really liked to complain, so in July of 2014 he launched The Social Hour. So with a face for radio and a voice for silent movies, Deece became a podcaster.

“I like to be on the vanguard of the most popular platforms-- That’s why I write books and do talk radio. I can also do the Charleston and enjoy hanging at the local malt shop. ” –Deece

Now living in Spokane, WA, Deece uses the show as a platform to promote local and worldwide events, all from his unique comedic perspective.  The show features interviews with comedians, politicians, business owners and more, and is also a great excuse to drink beer with brew masters at craft breweries, and talk about the beer, while not looking like a raging alcoholic. You can also find him back in the standup comedy game, performing regularly around the Northwest, producing shows as one of the heads of SpoKomedy, and co-host of the Drink N' Debate comedy competition at the Spokane Comedy Club.

“I don’t like to think I choose podcasting, but rather that podcasting chose someone else… and they weren’t available. So here I am. You’re welcome.” –Deece
