I run around writing
and performing comedy.
I can't kick a ball.
Don't ask me to do that.
I was gallivanting around doing standup pre-pandemic. My gallivanting has become more careful now ;)
Check out my author page. In "Out on the Edge" I write about my work and "The Gay Mafia." (Published by Allyson Books).
I also wrote "Viral" - A comedy/suspense novel (Amazon).
I exec produced MTV Logo's 8-episode "Outlaugh Festival on Wisecrack." I also produced the movie, "Outlaugh."
In addition to producing, I wrote, directed, and acted in the web series, "Fighting Frankie," and more than 30 comedy shorts which were screened at the Comedy Store and The Vidiots Micro Cinema.
I founded, directed, and performed in 3 comedy groups; “Shock of the Funny” in New York, and “The Gay Mafia” and "Angry Daddies" in Los Angeles.
Shock of the Funny was called "wonderful...refreshingly different!.." by the NY Post.
The Gay Mafia was featured in the Outlaugh TV series and movie. We were called "The funniest sketch and improv I have seen in a long time." - Kai Bisby, IN Magazine, and "Inspiring" by Margaret Cho.
The Angry Daddies debuted in the Hollywood Fringe Festival to a standing ovation and were featured at Highways Performance Space.
