For the last two decades I've written for Jay Leno, Joan Rivers, and Dennis Miller. I was a quarter-finalist on 'Star Search'...I lost to a puppet. I also appeared on A&E's 'An Evening at the Improv,' Showtime's 'Comedy Club Network,' and CNN's 'Business Unusual.'
I've opened up for Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, Jeff Foxworthy, and Ron White, and most recently I was opened up, by a crack team of cardiac surgeons, at the Oregon Heart and Vascular Institute...who, performed an aortic valve replacement, his second, and tossed in a double bypass, his first...so he truly is, Funny at Heart.
'Hey, did you hear the one about the comedian who had two heart valve replacements, a double bypass, and lived to joke about it?' Well you can, just book me!
Day in and day out people face pain, loss, stresses and personal messes and are confronted with the daunting task of surviving and thriving, in a lousy economy, with the odds stacked against them. As a Certified Laugh Coach, Stress Reduction Specialist, and Professional Comedian since 1985 who has totaled one marriage, two heart valves, and three cars, and turned a million dollar real estate portfolio, amassed by age 52, into, thanks to the recession and a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filing, a $125,000 real estate portfolio by age 53, I offer time-tested tools for using humor to turn pain into punchlines, losses into laughs, and messes and stresses into successes.
