Comedy Clubs

I headlined a show at the Comedy Bar in Toronto a while back. Comedians, myself - a comedian doing magic, and a mime were on the show. The large part of my income and professional work as a comedy magician is at corporate after dinner events and cruise ship theatres. Still, I started in this business in comedy clubs and I still have a...

I Will Not Go Quietly

The last time I stepped onstage to perform for a real live audience was March 1st 2020 at Marvyn’s Magic Dinner Theatre in Palm Springs California. I was working with The Evasons, friends  and arguably the best two person mentalist...

Mr. Saturday Night

There's a scene in Mr. Saturday night when Billy Crystal tells his brother what its like on stage when you're really killing, and things are amazing " It broke my heart you never knew what...

Comedy Show

I have a fondness for Winnipeg.  The city is fun and I have friends who live there who are always a blast to hang out with, it has a thriving arts scene and a world class comedy festival. True, Winnipeg also reaches temperatures of minus 33 in the winter, as I witnessed on a recent trip in December while performing a...

Safety Above All Else

It’s true, I’ve been absent for some time.  A month to be exact.  Once again Holland America Line was generous enough to hire me to headline shows with my Comedy Magic show in theatres on 2 of their ships over the course of 30 days, on opposite ends of the continent.I spent the first two weeks in Alaska, as I do most summers with HAL.  Amazing. Sitka, Juneau, Ketchi...

Performing for Bikers

I performed for bikers Saturday night. The Widows Sons. YES, actual motorcycle bike club bikers. They're a surprisingly good comedy crowd, hell of a good group of wonderful people and the show was to raise money for a worthy cause. Going in I had very different expectations. I thought they’d be rough and do one of those th...

Guide for Hiring Entertainers & Performers

It’s pretty interesting. I hear a lot of clients buying entertainment for their conferences and conventions still in a state of confusion about what to expect from the professional corporate entertainer. The talent they say, doesn’t seem very professional. This is a growing issue in my industry and should not be tolerated. No matter if the person entertaining at your c...

Stand Up Comedy at Corporate Events

One of the most difficult aspects of working in the corporate event industry is connecting with other suppliers genuinely good enough to recommend. I’m a strong supporter of helping clients find good talent.  Something I do for free, with the intention that every conference, convention or event gets great talent, with great results. Everyone in my industry benefits from...
