I've been a professional comedian for 30 plus years working all over America and several foreign countries. I've done everything from hosting morning and afternoon drive radio along with TV shows to opening for singers such as Celine Dion, Melissa Manchester, George Jones, Whitney Houston, Faith Hill and Elton John.
I've done a great deal of corporate work for these companies: Carlson Companies, 3M, Control Data, Heinz Corporation, Disney, EcoLab, The Republican and Democratic National Committee's Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Norwegian Cruise Lines and AT&T.
I also have a very popular "Corporate Imposter" character "Ed Powar" "Consultant to the consultants" along with personalizing.
What to Expect
They can expect a high energy topical act that has impressions and audience interaction as well as relate-able material from three decades as a husband and parent. I'm up to date as well as being savvy about the audience I am playing to. They will be surprised and excited about what they experienced.
I'm a native New Yorker who left for Minnesota for love or a woman and love of comedy. Both bloomed for quite some time the marriage brought two children and lasted 27 years. The comedy is still going 33 years later! I've worked in front of audiences all over the world and done shows in the G Rated mode all the way to R rated I instinctively know what an audience can go with and that is something you won't get from someone who has only been doing it for less than 10 years and even more. Time wise I have always found 35 to 40 minutes seems to work best but on some occasions I've been known to roll with it for more than an hour. I can personalize material for special events and special occasions.
Additional Booking Notes
I need only a reliable sound system (I have one that is available for a small fee) a small riser or open area for a stage and some form of focused lighting so the audience can focus on me not the things surrounding me. A separate changing area or green room with water and soft drinks would be nice but not a must have.
It's in my head and you don't have to worry about it. Unless you have something you want added.
