Improv Nerd Podcast

544664_311504498915082_2039813248_nYou’ll really enjoy listening to this podcast episode of Improv Nerd. Jimmy asks improv’s widely known teachers and performers about the fun little quirks about how we do what we do. We had a great conversation about my improv beginnings, what I think it takes to do a great improv scene, and even some of my work as a magician. Yep, I’m a magician when I want to be. Were you aware?

Is there anything else you’d like to ask me? Comment below and I’ll do my best to answer your questions.

Comedy Death Star Podcast

My favorite interview yet! I had so much fun with Denzil Meyers on his podcast that features comedy folks, improvisers and other interesting types. He asks so many interesting questions that I had never been asked before!

We met exchanging comments on Facebook about improv. He then invited me to join him on his podcast as we have several mutual friends. He gets to the questions using some really fun games, and does some deep research about his guests. One of the most amazing things he asked are “What is your superpower?” and “Which anagram of your name or projects you’ve been on describe you best?” So interesting.

He also told me about his pie-in-the-face therapy. It’s called Pie Yourself Free, and you can join the group on facebook to learn more. Fans of The Three Stooges, classic comedy and solid therapy will enjoy learning more. He gave me a Pie Yourself Free card, and I’m allowed to pie him in the face. I’m also encouraged to let others pie me in the face, too!

Give the podcast a listen HERE.

Returning as Fred Mertz

I’m so honored to be asked to reprise my role as Fred Mertz in the 100th birthday celebration of Desi Arnaz.  The annual Lucy Fest celebrates Desi’s birthday in style with three performances at the Willow Bay Theater in Jamestown, NY.

Desi’s character Ricky is played by Bill Mendieta, and as always Diane Vincent and Rhonda Medina’s Lucy and Ethel celebrate the work of comedy pioneers Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance. Tickets are available HERE!

20597253_10154569108732364_9144018060045587483_nI’ve been fortunate to work with all of these great folks before in different incarnations. I performed with Bill Mendietta in I Love Lucy Live on Stage in Las Vegas and in Hollywood at the Greenway Court Theater, and I have performed with
Diane and Rhonda in several Lucy Fest performances. What we’ve been working on in rehearsals has been magic!

This is Your Comedy Throwback

You can watch of one of my very first network TV appearances. I was a cast member and writer on the Dana Carvey Show. My first appearance on the show was as Senator Phil Graham losing his family election to his son Terry, and I may post that as a Thursday Comedy Throwback in the future. But for now, this popped up on YouTube, and while it’s still there…take a gander. Click HERE to see the comedy!

Online Exclusive

Watch this by 7pm PST. It’s a mostly musical improv jam I hosted at World Comedy Studios last night. Paul Green was on the keyboard and the improvisers were at play! Such a joy. There is some language so, if you watch an improv jam at work, save this one for the drive home! 

It’s only on Periscope till tomorrow night. Share this with a friend! Click HERE to watch.
