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...

BOOM STICK !

The International Brotherhood of Magicians was not only generous enough to have me featured on the cover of their international magazine, but also gave me permission to share the article with the general public. Only members of the IBM are able to see the contents of the magazine, so this was a real treat !! Its a big PDF file and may take a minute to lo...

Artists are in trouble

I want to pass this along for consideration. Early morning I had to talk an artist out of punching their ticket. You never want someone to check out of the world that way. Believe me when I tell you, that’s not an easy phone conversation.  A lot at risk.  I smoked a lot during that call, the one time I could NOT screw things up. Its ok now, so far, they’ll be alrigh...

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...

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...

Koningsdam fun on Holland America

I’ve been absent again for some time.  I know, it’s becoming a theme, but the upside is no one reads this, so google if you’re listening, I’m sorry. I just returned from performing on Holland America’s Koningsdam for a week. I flew Toronto to Bridgetown Barbados and then sailed back to Lauderdale. The ...
