“The Awakening” – Coming soon…

As the simple signs of Spring begin to drop more than just subtle hints of a new time of rebirth, I bid you all great tidings!!

I am before you a humble man; a man who has been blessed in countless ways, ways that upon reflection are bountiful yet in times of sorrow forgotten…

For it has been a bitter and harsh winter, and Mother Nature is still fighting to keep some of the temperatures around… but soon it shall all begin again, the cycle returns, and life shall be reborn from soil… the sun will shine its rays and allow them to touch us with more warmth, the waters will welcome us with friendly waves, the animals shall run amok with renewed vigor… Springtime, renewal, rebirth, creation…

The Awakening!!

The fight has been long my friends, the struggles have had their grips for what seems to be an eternity… I cannot begin to tell you the trials big and small, the battles large and minuscule, the emotions deep and dark…

One must work for the betterment of oneself… one must work to create and to fix broken bonds… one must reach out to help those that cannot do it for themselves… but most importantly, one must stay true to his or her own heart and mind and ideals…

We sometimes get lost, worrying about the details instead of the whole… One must know the vision long-term and be sure to make the proper steps each day to reach the Omega… The fog and the dirt and the dust and the filth have all clouded my vision… But alas, I am working to clear out and focus, like becoming mentally Claritin clear (free plug)…

It’s been too long, and nature does not wait for procrastination… Progress must be forged… and it will… The only constant in life is change… and I welcome it…

You will hear more from me soon, as the mental factory is working overtime in producing sweet nectar of concentrated comedic ideas and content…

Spring is upon us, I welcome you in joining me in the celebration… For there is much joy in the world around us, we must only let it inside…

I wish all who read this much spiritual success during this beautiful time…

September News – New Open Mic for Lakewood “In The Works”!!

As the reality of the end of the summer gives way to the distinct beginning signs of fall… I bid you all a fond greeting!!

As we shall soon begin to lose some leaves off tree branches we will gain as a Cleveland comedy community a new open mic!

As you may be able to forecast, yes, it is true, yours truly is in the works to throw his hat back into the ring of running an open mic… and as a good, delusional, and out of his ego and skull comedian with my great credentials should do, I will also be the weekly host!!

And I am excited to announce that we may be starting this open mic hopefully in early October! Site to be announced but I will say that it is in the lovely suburb of Lakewood and shall be on Wednesday nights, probably starting at 10PM…

Now there are many details big and small still left to negotiate and work on, so by no means is this all set in stone…

But I am proud to say it feels good that this will be a win-win…And I’m excited to get back in touch with the local scene and see all the new faces…

Am I being creepily nostalgic or borderline too mushy? Perhaps…But I’m looking forward to getting back on a stage weekly and run a show again…

More info to follow, but wanted to at least get this info out and about…

See you all soon… ;)

August Update…

Greetings my children…ha…from my point of view currently that is humorous…

As those of you close to me know, my girlfriend and I are expecting our first child in the middle of October…so I am preparing to enter the realm known as fatherhood…

Unfortunately, my August 3rd show at Mahalls in Lakewood was first moved back to August 24th, and now due to the venue’s pullout on comedy, has been cancelled…

However I thought I would keep you in touch with the fact that the stars shall still line up and I plan on following through in the near future with commitments to still provide entertainment…YouTube content shall be provided soon…and I am also tossing back and forth the possibility of doing a podcast or internet radio show…

I appreciate everyone’s thoughts, kind words, and encouragement…And again, I look forward to new ways of entertaining not only you and others, but myself as well…

Let us cheers to the future, for it is bright!!
