Who is this for?

Do you consider yourself one of the following types of people?

  • A person who has always wanted to perform stand-up comedy?

  • A dabbler who has performed occasional open mic standup shows?

  • A seasoned comic who wants to follow a newbie just for kicks?

  • A producer looking for a fresh comic for a Netflix special?

You've come to the right place. At least for the first three options, but give me some time.

This Substack is my diary. It’s where I will share the highs and lows of everything I’m discovering while performing standup comedy.

My goal is to inspire you to do the same or improve what you’re already doing. For everyone else, I hope you enjoy following my journey from a 50-year-old newbie to a 53-year-old comic with a Netflix special.

For those of you still scratching your head. I recommend watching these wise (NSFW) words from Curtis Armstrong to Tom Cruise in the 1983 classic, Risky Business.
