Where to start???

I KNOW!, I'll begin...

...Here ››› I was born in New York City, started performing magic as a youngster, and soon added juggling. My defining moment came when I first saw my hero, STEVE MARTIN, on TV! He was the GREATEST, FUNNIEST, MOST AMAZING PERFORMER I'VE EVER SEEN, and, I WANTED TO BE JUST LIKE HIM!!! So, first things first...I purchased a banjo.

In my teens, I was given an opportunity to perform with Clyde Beatty-Cole Brothers Circus, the World's Largest Tent Circus. It was an incredible experience, and it was SO MUCH FUN!!!

That led to jobs performing for people like Andy Warhol, John Lennon & Mick Jagger, which led to more work with some awesome rock bands such as Deep Purple, and Van Halen. Hey, I even appeared in Rolling Stone Magazine with Phil Collins!

After graduating college with a degree in music, I began to street perform, and acting in Off Broadway Theater. Soon, I started warming up audiences for TV shows, and opening up for some top headliners. Over the years I've appeared with a virtual who's who of music & comedy, performing in the top theaters & venues throughout North America.

After many years touring the national comedy club circuit, I was seen by Merv Griffin, who brought me into Atlantic City for a full year as a comedy headliner in his show "Wahoo Baby!" That was such a great experience!

Since then I've been "discovered" by Ed McMahon, which led to an appearance with him in Las Vegas, a spot on the 15th Annual American Comedy Awards, and several spots on the Jerry Lewis Telethon.

By making my show more of a visual experience, I've been appearing at international venues, such as headlining at "The Singapore International Comedy Festival", and several appearances on the #1 French Variety TV Show, "Le Plus Grand Cabaret Du Monde".

I've performed on cruise ships all over the globe, at major casinos (Las Vegas, Reno, Atlantic City, & the Bahamas), corporate events, colleges/universities, conventions, resorts, fairs/festivals, and even amusement parks. Recently I appeared at Busch Gardens Theme Park in Tampa Bay, Florida - 180 shows in 7 weeks!!! OUCH!!!

Other TV shows I've appeared on over the years include "America's Funniest People"(ABC), "Comedy Tonight"(Fox), "The Statler Bros. Show" (TNN), "Ed McMahon's Next Big Star" (NBC), "30 Seconds to Fame" (Fox), as well as appearances on MTV, VH-1, CNBC, HBO, & Showtime.

I'm writing & creating new material everyday. My show keeps evolving, it's truly a work in progress. Even though I've been doing this for awhile, I feel like I'm just getting started!
