You know how some weekends it feels like you’ve just gotten NOTHING accomplished at all, whereas others you jam-pack with so much crazy that you wind up in need of another weekend immediately just to recover? Yeah. Me too. This weekend was NOT either one of those, in fact it feels like for once, we actually got the balance right. Can it be? As time goes on I’m giving up on the idea of balance being a sustainable ideal, but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy it when it actually finds us! The past two days were a perfect combination…

I wouldn’t be about to even embark on this mad adventure were it not for many, MANY different people helping me along the way, not the least of which is this wonderful wacky woman before you, Ms Liz Skitch.

Allow me to share a little from my show program: Chris Daniel was literally the first person I met on the comedy scene. I was…

With less than two weeks to go, I’m both thrilled and terrified to note that a significant number of tix and RSVPS for the upcoming show at Brisbane Powerhouse are from folks I went to school with some fifteen + years ago. A significant number. A healthy portion of whom I have not seen in years. Don’t get me wrong, I’m utterly thrilled to feel so supported by these amazing people from my past. I’m stoked to have a home crowd to perform for. I’m genuinely excited to catch up with these folks (really: I was quite the Pollyanna at…
