March 27th 2013

I can’t think of a better time than the end of the world to make a major announcement for the New Year.  Some of you who follow my career may have noticed in this last year, I have been working hard to develop a new show. This isn’t anything particularly new for me; I am always trying to improve my style and write new material. 2013 is going to be different though because all this work is for a reason.  For the first time since 2007, I am going to be recording for a new CD/DVD and digital download package. The title of the DVD is still in development but I can assure you the rest of my vision is in place. I want to invite you all to make it out to the live recording which will be happening on Wed. March 27th at 8:00 PM at the Star Theater in Portland, OR. $10 in advance and $12 at the door. 

I wish you could be inside my head to know how important this night is to me.  We have been on a long journey together and this project is very personal. Hell, the material I have been working on for the DVD is personal. This isn’t a show to push the boundaries of shock either, so if you are expecting Cripple xXx 2.0, trust me when I say, it is nothing like it at all. It’s simply my life’s story. Going forward I can also say this will be my style of comedy for the foreseeable future. I’m a storyteller and I guess I’ve always been one.

It is also a huge honor to announce the other performers on the bill for the evening. Crystal Kordowski will be hosting the show and Chris Smith from Philadelphia will be my opening act. Not only are these two comedians amazing to watch, they are some of the closest friends I have.  The respect and admiration I have for them both goes way beyond anything I can say here.  Who they are on and off the stage, how they conduct themselves in life, and their long form storytelling style are just a few of the many reasons I chose them to be a part of this special night. Both are amazing parents, honest, and hold themselves to a standard of integrity few possess.  Thank you both for being a part of it all.

How I imagine the night of March 27th going, I replay in my head on a daily bases. I cannot wait to play it out for real on stage.  Put this in your calendar and help share the moment with me and as always, thank you all for your passionate support along the way.
