How it all started
After decades in the music industry, I decided I became jaded, and lost my love for music. And what I needed to have during my rediscovery process, was humor. I surrounded myself with my funniest friends... And I started hanging out at comedy clubs. I got to know the lingo, the vibe...it wasn't too far off from my music past... If you've ever hung out with 4 guys in a band...well it gets hilarious.
But after seeing many national performers, like Pablo Franciso, Jon Reep, Tammy Pescatelli, Don Collier, Brad Williams, Ben Bailey, Bob Zany, Jay Pharroh ... and hundreds more (endless list) ... I laughed...I laughed hard! I hung out...I felt the vibe...and
I got spots (gigs)...
Music was cool...and is in my DNA - but THIS is a quicker, direct injection to the soul! And the spirit, is still Rock N Roll!
Shoot ahead ... years & many busy days of finding stage time as much as possible ... travelling, bombing, killing, starving, winning and losing ... I have arrived. And every performance I realize something bigger than me is evolving. I realize I am a conduit for a fun universal energy.
And I love it.
I love getting awkward and weird... I love doing the comedy trenches with my peers, I love hosting and featuring my 10's, 15's to energetic 30 minute sets. I'm building my headline spot as we speak. I even made a comedy CD of my feature set....pre pandemic.
It's always a work in progress....and I love it!
I love making you laugh...because when you do... I do!
We're in this together!
