2009 What a Year

Wow, 2009 came and went like a speeder driving in the left lane at 90mph, advancing in and out of the months and seasons like a cabbie changing lanes on the way to the airport! Last year was a blur. I think my recollection of ’09 was the equivalent of highway hypnosis, how the hell…

The Love of the Game

When I started my stand-up comedy career, I was working the clubs in Dallas and Fort Worth. I would also drive to Houston and Austin on a weekly basis for the amateur nights at their local comedy clubs. All this driving and writing bits, finally paid off. Terri Stoor asked me to join her stand-up…

Thank God for the wingman

[youtube SHrXIF6oCVQ] Ah, there are so many things to be thankful for in this beautiful month of November, leaves changing colors, football, turkey dinner, the cool crisp air of a fall night and all the friendly drivers I see every day on the freeways in Dallas. People closing the gap when someone has their signal…

Giving thanks for everything

The month of November always brings fond memories of holiday seasons past. It’s hard to forget the entertaining turkey dinners with my aunt and uncle who always fought like they were on the Jerry Springer Show or my gay cousin who incidentally lived in San Francisco, would always catch crap from his homophobic dad. But…
