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...

Happy 2020

2019 was an amazing year. Zero complaints. Work and home were awesome. My Son started school, is super smart and funny.... and

Last Performance of 2019

Finished my last show of 2019 last night. Amazing crowd and killer show what a way to end the year ! I'd like to thank all the agents and producers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to keep me working. Its truly appreciated. I know the sales of comedy performers is an up at dawn pride-swallowing siege that I will never fully understand... but I thank you for...

Air Canada

I fly A LOT. I fly more than just about anyone I know, with the exception of other entertainers who work for my agent. My record is 180 thousand miles in a year, slightly less than the distance from the earth to the moon. This year I broke that record. I just returned from performing at a corporate event in Winnipeg, Manitoba. A holiday party to be accurate...

Entertaining in the Heat

If I were a character in the Rankin Bass holiday classic A Year Without a Santa Claus, I’d without question be heat miser.  If you’re not familiar with them, here’s the famous song introducing the characters.  My brother and I would sing this every dec...

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...

Performance Riders

The show rider isn’t about the green M&M’s.  I promise you that.On my jog this morning I listened to the Variety Artists podcast.  Within the interview the guests mentioned having a rider for your show, something every professional ac...
