What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 30 - 120 minutes
I am very versatile, either doing straight stand up, a mix of stand up and improv with the audience, or emceeing. My stand up is unique and filled with observations and unique ways of looking at the world. There is no one that does a stand up act very similar to mine. I can combine that with improv, or just do improv as well. For the improv, I will get members of the audience up with me. My goal in that is to be funny, and to make the audience member look like the hilarious hero, not the butt of the joke.
This can be worked on an event by event basis. For a simple set up I will simply need a microphone, stand, and good lighting. Examples of more might be a desk and couch with a chair.
