Well this is my blog so I guess I can be free to express my opinions.  Saskatoon's comedy scene has been expanding at a quick rate.  I say expanding because I think it's a more applicable word than growing.  

The main reason I bring this up as a topic is I'm pleased to...

If you've known me for any length of time or seen my show you know I spend time in casinos. I love, love poker. An area to simultaneously test my skills, make some spending cash, and try out some new premises on a crowd.

Now I'll visit this specific topic in a later blo...

I've had several sections of heavy blogging in my life. Followed by even longer sections of silence.

It's always a bit of a challenge for me. Do I take my time and meticulously craft long-form posts that have well-thought-out ideas? Or do I just babble off the cuff and...

If you’ve seen on Facebook recently, I’ve started a page to track my efforts to go all of 2018 without eating.

Click HERE to follow my progress!

Turns out working a full time job, a part time job, running a monthly comedy contest and a full Corporate Christmas Comedy schedule can be a bit tiring.

Back to the blog, here are some updates!

The Christmas season is much better than last year, but still not the boom of a few years ago.  I’ve got stand-up comedy shows in Saskatoon, Regina, Humboldt, Naicam & Moose Jaw.  Noticeably absent this year are Estevan & Weyburn...

New York is an absolute assault on the senses. A barrage of sounds, people, concrete and noise.

I'm staying at an Airbnb in the East Village, which should mean more to me I think. This is no tourist trap, this is real New York.

I used to have an attitude coming from...

It's one of the hardest parts of the job. The flights, the long car rides, the isolation, the strangers who become best friends and turn back into strangers. The road has devoured many a comedian.

Now for the record the travel for this particular show is a delight. I...

The amount of energy I've put into comedy in the last week and a half is more than the last 6 months. The little things like wordsmithing and fine editing, soliciting advice, reviewing tape and rehearsing. When you put that on top of my usual 65 hour work week it's a b...

I've got the set, now I'm just trimming out the unnecessary words.

I've got the room booked, now I'm figuring out the cheapest way there from the airport.

The outfits are picked, now I need to make it all fit in one carry-on

The Canadian dollar is pretty good but ge...
