I grew up in southeast Virginia. I was raised in a strip mall by arcade attendants. My actual parents were also involved. After college I escaped suburbia and moved to NYC. I found my home, and its this beautiful, dirty city. I tried Los Angeles out for a few years, but even with the perpetual spring and incredible gene pool, I craved the authentic weirdness that is New York. I've been busy traveling all over the country, performing at every college in the universe (over 500 of them), bunches of clubs, and visiting every Walmart I can find. I never buy anything, but I do hang out and use all the deodorants (even the ladies') Its my small protest against the evil empire. I've performed at The Montreal Comedy Festival, Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival, and the New York Comedy Festival. You might have seen me on the tube, not getting into the house (an obvious injustice) on the second season of "Last Comic Standing". I've done Comedy Central's "Premium Blend", "Shorties Watching Shorties", and "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn"(Colin insists that I look like a state trooper with an itchy trigger finger). I've been on NBC's Friday night 3 times, and I've shown my mug on MTV's "The Jim Bruer Show" and even guest starred on several episodes of "Daria" (if you're a fan, I was the track star guy that lures Jane onto the track team. I had great animated hair). If you procrastinate in front of the TV a lot, you may have seen me recently as a commentator on E's "50 Most Outrageous Moments", or "50 Wicked Women", or making fun of people on TLC's Trading Spaces retrospective. Also, if you live in the Jetblue universe, I've probably invaded your living room as the Jetblue guy. If you like to be voluntarily advertised to, check out one of the spots in my media section. If you live in or around NYC, you can see me every night I'm here at one of the clubs around town. Check out my schedule. If I don't perform in your town, call your local club or university program board and demand that they hire me. After you're done here, add me to your myspace if you are in that alternate universe, and I'll keep you updated on my whereabouts. Right now, put off your life and hang out. Go and blow up my head for a while.
