Stand Up Toledo 2013

In January 2013 I had the opportunity to perform at the Maumee Indoor Theatre in front of  over 400 people. It was a really great experience.

Photos / Flyers 2010 - 2011

I started doing stand up in October 2010. These are some old photos from my first year of comedy. For the first year and first year only, I wore a blazer on stage. At the one year mark, I shed the blazer and became the usually flannel-clad comedian that stands before you now.

I distinctly remember this flyer outshining the actual show.

A local magazine wrote an article about my stand up. In retrospect it was really silly because I was so new. I still have no idea what the headline mean, but it was still a very fun experience.

Duckburg seems nice… until you take into account all the segregation that probably went on.

Safest Choices to Host 2014 Oscars

It seems like no matter who the Academy chooses to host the Oscars, viewers are unhappy or offended. I can’t help but think the root of evil in all of this is comedy. So, rather than keep fighting this ongoing battle to please everyone, I suggest the Academy takes a different approach next year and purges the Oscars of all humor. That being said, here are (in no particular order) my suggestions for who would be the safest hosts for the 86th Annual Academy Awards.

Mitt Romney’s Sons:

Nothing says classic Hollywood like this soon to be irrelevant group of Mormons. Will there be musical numbers?? No. No there will not be.

Alan Rickman as Severus Snape:

If you’re worried about him breaking character after the monologue, DON’T BE. It’s going to be three and a half hours of nonstop stoic Professor Snape antics.

The Yoda Puppet From The Original Star Wars Films: 

The most important thing to take into account here is that there will be absolutely NO puppeteers. The Yoda puppet will remain silent and motionless on a stool throughout the entire show. We can all watch in awe as the producers simply build the show AROUND the puppet. It may not be interesting to everyone, but at least it’s tame.

Mean Gene Okerlund (Featured Left):

Though he may be unknown outside the world of retro professional wrestling, Mean Gene is the right man for the job. The biggest night in Hollywood is no match for this mild mannered man. Not only does he consistently sport a sensible tuxedo and mustache, he has mastered the art of holding a one-sided conversation with Andre the Giant.

A Novelty Drinking Bird:

You seem skeptical… but consider this, it can drink various beverages throughout the night. Good clean American fun.

Pope Benedict XVI:

He stepped down from the papacy, so he could step up at the Oscars! Even without the whole former Pope angle, let’s face it, the man is CHARMING. Plus who can say no to the fun of reading that many subtitles??

The Blue Man Group:

This idea is fucking bullet proof.
