Hashtag TimeForANewPost.

I thought about deleting all of those old posts from the election. It occurred to me, because my website is evolving. With the work I’m currently engaged in on behalf of Ccilu USA, its partnership with Soles4Souls, the YES, BRAND Podcast and my other creative pursuits, I’m doing more writing and less standup comedy. Political satire is certainly evident in my Twitter feed. But I’m trying to make this site a more balanced hub for all of my interests and pursuits. However, deleting articles just because they’re dated is silly. Some of the articles offer insight into where we were 6 months ago, or more. They aren’t really dated – I just wish they were. But it’s time for a new post. Having been heavily engaged in social media these past few months – more so on my clients’ behalf than for myself – I need a break from hash-tagging, tagging, and the game of tag in general. This isn’t a backlash post, though. It’s a breather post. I love my work, and for the past few years, in fact, I’ve been loving what I do. This newfound happiness was hard won, because in order to find my way I had to take a leap into the unknown. For me, it was a leap into comedy. 2013 marked the fulfillment of a foray into standup comedy that began in 1991, when I did my first-ever set, at the Comic Strip. That night, the late talent manager and booker Lucien Hold had agreed to give me five minutes late into the night. As I was about to step onstage, Eddie...

Comic Strip Live

I’ll be appearing at Comic Strip Live in NYC (the first stage I ever stepped on as a comedian – that night, I had to follow a drop-in by Eddie Murphy). In the Main Show tonight, I’ll be joined by some wonderful comics (no word on Eddie…yet). $15 Cover. Two item minimum. Reservations suggested. When you arrive, make sure YOU TELL THEM YOU’RE HERE TO SEE...

Returning to the Scene of the Crime

It was 1991 when I first stepped on a stage to perform stand-up comedy. I’ve done a few other things since then, and now I’m returning to the very stage I sullied that night – the world-famous Comic Strip.  Like all young comedians, I hung around for hours until I finally got my shot, at around 1:30am. That’s when Eddie Murphy dropped in to kill for 45 minutes. THEN I went up. Now that I know what bombing is, I would say I didn’t bomb that night. Still, here’s a chance to see me do better. While I haven’t yet found a NYC venue in which to recreate my long-running LA show, you’ll get to see some of that material and some other great comics! LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THERE!!! Please Note: The is a special event and it’s an early bird special, so no passes, just a $14 cover (one drink...
