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!!

What a long strange trip it has been…

My dearly beloved…

I write to you today officially with some news that has been on my mind for quite awhile…and we must always remember that the only constant in life is change…

For the past number of years I have had the privilege of traveling all over this country, to cities, towns and villages far and wide…in the hopes of them liking my jokes…getting me…giving me that feeling that every comic knows…that “I just crushed it” feeling…

Alas, I must report for for the time being and the foreseeable future, my time on the road has come to an end…I cannot begin to tell each of you how many emotions have flowed through my body in reaching this decision…I can tell you it was not easy, for I have dedicated the last 7 years of my life to being the best road comic I could…But for a variety of reasons…many too personal to share with you…I must make some changes and adjust my career path…

I will admit to you all that I am pleased to say I will be welcoming my first child into the world in October… a little girl… and I would like to be home to experience all the moments I can with her… And I am pleased to say that I am looking to spread my wings and take part in shaking things up for myself…rolling the dice…adding some zest…so what is my plan?

I am going to for now be concentrating on local shows throughout the great city and comedy scene of Cleveland, Ohio…I also hope to be hitting you guys and gals up with lots of new YouTube content…New videos, new premises…I can say I’m truly excited about this new focus and path… Also, I am in connection and working to get my good pal C Minus (#CMinus) into the studio so he can finally start laying some wicked tracks down…

In closing…many things are changing for me personally and professionally…but I view these changes as challenges and a natural Spring to renew my juices and vibes… Thank you to all the bars, hotels, clubs, restaurants, lodges, and casinos that allowed me to perform on their stages…I hope to entertain you all in new and exciting ways in the future…And don’t worry…one way or another, I’ll see you all soon…

Humbly yours…
