@QBConvention's Lunch with Keith Hernandez: Meet the Hosts.

As a lot of you know, on Saturday June 15th, The QBC presents Lunch with Keith Hernandez. I'll run down the details at towards the end of this post. I just wanted to do an intro to the talent that we will have on the mics for the event.

Let me start with my go to guy. The Master of Disaster  Ceremonies.The Host with the Most. He's Hip to be Square. The Man(Not Becky Lynch) with a plan. He hads his own podcast. Dennis "DHAPSHOW" Holden.

Dennis Holden is a podcaster, interviewer, host, and comedian born in Yonkers, New York. He continues to live in Westchester County while working all across New York City. Dennis has also taken philanthropic efforts supporting the Huntington’s Disease Society of America and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, in memory of his father and uncles. Dennis is a lifelong fan of the New York Mets, Jets, Knicks and Rangers, the musical stylings of Billy Joel, John Mayer, Ben Folds and Elvis Costello, and the accomplished and multi-talented careers of Tony Danza and Chris Jericho.
Dennis has hosted the Queens Baseball Convention since 2015 (most recently January 2019) interviewing Mets legends Edgardo Alfonzo and Ed Kranepool, and current player Chris Flexen, appeared on SNY’s Oh Yeah, ABC’s Primetime: What Would You Do? and failed miserably on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.

Dennis's Co-host of the Lunch with Keith Hernandez is also another buddy of mine and he is also the guy I keep threatening replacing DHAP as host of the QBC, John Saponaro.

John is the host of the Monster Jam Triple Threat series, as seen on Fox Sports 1. He travels to major arenas all over the country emceeing the event and providing play-by-play, commentary, live interviews and crowd engagement. 

In 2017, John served as the host and master of ceremonies for the 4th annual New York New Works Theatre Festival at the Duke on 42nd Street and Halloween Harvest at Coney Island's Luna Park.

​ John has also hosted charity events, film screenings, company outings, trivia contests and roasts. A Brooklyn native, John brings a uniquely New York perspective with him every time he takes the stage. That, coupled with his odd observations and sarcastic wit, make John a favorite in comedy clubs in New York City and all around the country. His conversational delivery and "tell it like it is" demeanor has lead to peers and industry members alike to compare him to a young Bill Hicks and George Carlin... He could only be so lucky!

We are very lucky to have these two fine gentleman helping entertain you guys before and after the Keith signing.

Next we come to the host of the Keith Hernandez panel. The one. The only, Pete McCarthy. Pete is a Host/Anchor at WFAN, WINS, SNY, , also the co-host of The Metrospective . And Play-by-play for the . You might remember how much you loved him on the former WOR Sports Zone. Oh yeah, we have had Pete do some great panels at the last two QBCs.

Man we are lucky to have these three solid talents entertaining us on Saturday June 15th at Mikkeller Brewery at Citi Field.
