About me:Check out my site: LordofLaughs.com I'm a stand-up comic and an avid rockabilly aficionado. I tour a lot in the U.S. and have made two tours of Europe (England, Ireland, Italy, France, Denmark and The Netherlands). My CD "UNSWEETENED" is on the KOOL KAT imprint. It's in heavy rotation on XM SATELLITE RADIO, and SIRIUS. You can buy it for the low price of $13.99 by clicking the icon below
I'm interviewed on the latest segment of Punchline Magazine and Rooftop Comedy's TIGHT 5 and I'm featured in the current issue of the comedians magazine--ask for it at a newsstand near you--it's got Judah Friedlander on the cover, and Richard Lewis and I listed on the masthead.
I've guested on SIRIUS' Court TV Morning and a metric ton of syndicated radio including (eighteen appearances on) THE BOB & TOM SHOW, THE JOEY REYNOLDS SHOW, and THE TOM LEYKIS SHOW, and lots of top-rated non-syndicated shows like Seattle's BOB RIVERS SHOW and Cleveland's LANIGAN & MALONE.
I get paired with a lot of music acts and have appeared with Weird Al Yankovich, Bigger Than Elvis, Deke Dickerson, Los Straitjackets and Engelbert Humperdinck. I've even shared a stage with Mickey Gilley!
PUNCHLINE MAGAZINE occasionally features a blog by yours truly. My favorite ones are about STOCKLINES and HOW I CAME TO LIVE IN NYC. My regular column about movies that contain rock & roll, DRIVIN' MOVIES, is on ComedyFilmNerdsDotCom.com
Who I'd like to meet:Rockabilly cats and kittens, movers and shakers, heroes and villains. Pickers, grinners, lovers, sinners.
