What to Expect
As a Stand Up Comedian who has over 15 years experience along with 3 Countries who book me (United States, England and Australia) I can say this with full honesty. You are booking a grateful individual who enjoys what he does as much as the audiences enjoy watching him. I am for all intents and purposes a "Traditional" Stand Up Comedian. I share my experience along with my perceptions of life (the whole shabang), family , travel and the things I've seen. Depending on the audience there may be some "crowd work" involved. I mean this when I say that In 15 years, If someone has thought of a show, I have likely done it. I'm a man of many hats. Depending on the event and what I have been hired for will determine what version of me the booker recieves. Upright and Proper. Zany and Fun. Master of Ceremonies. Emcee. Greeter. They all have one thing in common, FUN. I enjoy what I do and I'm confident that shines through.
Originally from South Texas I moved to Austin, Texas in 1999 to pursue a career in Stand Up Comedy. I became really good , really fast. Until I found out that I wasn't that good and I had wandered a world bigger than I knew. As I matured and collected life experience the comedic fruit started to ripen . Accepting that Stand Up Comedy is a quest for contant evolution it has led me to interesting people and life changing experinces. The U.S , England and Australia are now all beautiful lands that have provided a stage where I have called home. I am very lucky. Very grateful and know that my audiences aren't the only ones having fun.
Additional Booking Notes
All I need is a Mic and a space to provide my speaking duties. Of course I would prefer I that Microphone and Speaker were provided but I do in fact have my own microphone , speaker and ampliflier. That can be discussed depending on distance traveled.
Stand Up Comedy and Talking. Play whatever music you want. I am not opposed to jammin with ya.
