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!

I mean eating in the traditional sense of chewing and swallowing food.  Of course I’ll still be taking in calories, but my pri...

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.
 

I’m mastering the 11 minute nap, and a couple of those a day are allowing me to get by on 5-6 hours of sleep per ni...

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...

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.

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.

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 Canadian dollar is pretty good but ge...

My set list today doesn't look anything like what I imagined it would when I first got this gig. The introspection and advice have done me well and I feel I've got an accurate cross-section of who I am represented across six minutes.

The challenge is some of these bit...

Today I had the opportunity to do stand up at the Canadian Cancer Society Patient Lodge.

7 senior cancer patients, a brightly lit TV room, and me. Yes I bombed. Quick tip for the kids out there just getting into comedy. You know you bombed if:

A) You bring in a choco...

I received some excellent advice. What I should be doing on the stage is what is truly original to me, what I WANT to be doing. That's where the joy comes from.

Another good friend pointed out that tailoring your act to your audience can be a survival technique. I think...
