If you’re an act like me and you’re on the road performing a lot, you have two lives. The road life of shows and other performers, then your home life with your family and friends. When you’re away from one you miss the other. It’s tough to reconcile. This week I’ll...

Finally. It occurred to me WHY I enjoy performing on Holland America’s ships. I’ve been mentioning them quite often of late; because the company generously hires me with regularity to perform my comedy magic show onboard their vessels. There’s much to like. The...

I just put on Echo and Bunnymen, so get ready to sit back and chill. Having returned from the panama canal, a cruise I was performing on courtesy of Holland America Line, I’m pretty stoked. This year they’ve been super generous and booked me to headline their ships...

We lost Harry Anderson Yesterday.  He died at his home, not much more is known at this time. A Harry Anderson selfie is not what I want to share right now. But this is. First time I met Harry I was quite young and I found myself sitting across the table from him at a...

Last week I performed on a television show, which I greatly enjoyed. Performing with the Evasons and Mike Bullard is always a treat. This week I’m back at sea on Holland America’s luxury ship The MS ZAANDAM.  Yes, yes, I know I mention Holland America often these...

Every comic in the country is posting about Mike MacDonald tonight. He died March 17th 2018 at 63 years old. EVERYONE is posting about him. As they should. He was a game changer. A legend to be sure. He could be burry and abrasive at times, especially if he didn’t...
Writing

Writing

I make weird choices sometimes, especially when it comes to writing material for my show. I have a strong belief that if I write what I like, the audience will sense that I’m doing something I love and get on board with that. Doesn’t always work, especially during the...

I’ve been talking about Holland America Cruises lately. I’m performing on one right now, where I’m currently in the middle of the Pacific Ocean half way between California and Hawaii. I’ve been headlining shows for them for a while now. I love the theatre, the...

Look, I’m a pretty low tech guy. Updating this blog every week is quite a chore for me. I really don’t have much patience for the internet and electronic banking, cell phone wizardry and all that jazz.
 Until very recently I didn’t even use internet banking, and still...
