I'm a Comedian and Auctioneer. I put the fun in fundraising.
I've written for Jay Leno, Joan Rivers, and Dennis Miller for the last two decades, was featured on CNN's Business Unusual, and was a Quarter Finalist on Star Search...I lost to a puppet...yes, a puppet.
I do comedy that is HR friendly,and customized to your attendees, and the theme and goals of your event.
I've shared the stage with Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, Jeff Foxworthy, Rosie O’Donnell, Carrot Top, Ron White, Jay Leno, Joan Rivers, Dennis Miller, Randy Travis, Lou Rawls, The Beach Boys, Mary Wilson, andNeil Sedaka.
He butchered the school fundraiser event I attended. He started one of the bids on an item people didn’t know what they were bidding on. He didn’t describe the items himself , made someone else get on stage to do it. He didn’t try hard at all to get into the role, and did not do the typical “auction” you would expect that catches everyone’s attention l. he couldnt read the numbers on the “bids” ( that we’re big and bold in black) the poor gal who stood next to him from the school had to tell him and point things out to him that he missed. I’m hoping he was doing this out of the goodness of his heart for a charitable organization, because he definitely was not worth any money.
What to Expect
Clean, clever, observational comedy, in the form of funny keynotes full of hiliarious insights into dealing successfully with generational differences in the work place, learning the 5 Simple Super Success Secrets, surviving change in all of its forms, and/or getting and staying heart healthy.
In addition, I offer sparkling and funny emceeing, fast paced and funny bilingual auctioneering, and a dead-on impersonation of Bill Clinton, with my pal Jan McInnis as Hillary.
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!
