Confidence

I’ve been talking about Holland America Cruises lately. I’m performing on one right now, where I’m currently in the middle of the Pacific Ocean half way between California and Hawaii. I’ve been headlining shows for them for a while now. I love the theatre, the corporate culture, the accommodations and the way I’m treated. As far as I can tell, having worked MANY cruise lines over the last 10 ye...

Holiday Party

December. For all the good in this season there’s also a fair bit of greed too.  Not just from a company sales perspective, but from an entertainer’s one as well. When you specialize in corporate after dinner entertainment, every high end firm wants to hire you in November and December for their special night.

Fix it in post

“We’ll fix it in post” I’ve been lazy about posting. Exhausted more like it.  Between normal performances at corporate events, my kid and new work opportunities, it’s been a mess.

Can you believe ...

Old Friends

The general public could maybe name 3 living magicians, 4 if you include Harry Houdini. The average person may know David Copperfield, David Blaine, and if they were paying attention, Chris Angel. Its a sad state of affairs that Doug Henning has already vanished from popular consciousness, given what he’s done for magic and how he’s moved it forward. That said there’s thousands, maybe tens o...

Summer performances

My Summer Vacation I’m a corporate comedian and magician. So basically that means I perform at conferences and conventions.  That’s the bulk of my work.  I occasionally perform in public theaters and headline onboard cruise ships, but mostly its after dinner entertainment for me.  I love the work, I understand it, and I’m good at it.  I’ve never had a real job, as in a 9-5 job.  I’ve always ...
