May 17 and 18: Two shows in San Diego

I’ll be in San Diego next week, so if you’re in the area ( or feel like a road trip), add some laughs to your weekend.

Friday, May 17, 2019
Friday Night Comedy at Bay Bridge Brewing
688 Marsat Court
Chula Vista CA 91911

8 pm. Craft beer, food trucks and no cover charge! Check the Facebook Event for more details.

Saturday, May 18, 2019
Comedy Heights at Twiggs
4590 Park Blvd
San Diego CA 92116

Door open at 7:30, show starts at 8 pm. Twiggs’ Green Room is a great performance space connected to a bakery and coffee shop. No cover charge, no two-muffin minimum, but treats and java are for sale. Clean comedy guaranteed! This long-running show has been written up in Thrillist and the San Diego Reader.

With each show, I feel like I’m getting one step closer to a gig in South Dakota.

Shout-out to Stan Sellers

Stan Sellers was one of the first stand-ups I met on the road. Back then clubs had condos as lodging for traveling comedians. In one city, there was a brand-new set of pots and pans that had likely been in the cupboard for years. Decades, maybe. Stan peeled off the plastic and started cooking. HeContinue Reading

For the past few years, I’ve posted to my blog on the first and third Monday of each month.  This made sense to me. It was in line with that productivity axiom “what gets scheduled gets done.” But lately hitting those two dates has been more of a challenge than a calling. If I’m onContinue Reading

A new way to pay taxes

Sure, we get some military, some hopefully clean air and water, and a paved road or two, but sometimes it seems like you’re giving aContinue Reading

Happy April Fools’ Day

I like the beginning of any month for that “fresh start, new plan” feeling. (Sure, theerent’s due on the first, but whatever). But the first of April is special–it gives everyone permission to pull a prank. I’ve always liked good jokes, but practical jokes? Not so much. (Although I do have a fake ice cubeContinue Reading

In memory of Johnny Lee

Carl R. Rogers, one of the founders of the humanistic approach to psychology, once said ““What is most personal is most universal.” Most comedians would agree. The experiences I have had that can be made funny have likely happened to many others. The audience recognizes our shared experience—and laughs. The same is true for theContinue Reading

Let’s roll the footage!

I continue to great feedback on my 2018 Dry Bar Comedy Special.  The VidAngel team did an amazing job of producing the show and editing the footage. It turned out just the way I had hoped.  My microphone was dead for the first seven minutes of the first show, which is why they have theirContinue Reading
