Watch “Get Up DC!” on WUSA9

Just a gentle reminder to watch Get Up DC! at 6AM every morning on WUSA9. It’s news, traffic and weather hosted by comedian Reese Waters. I’m a writer for the show so the more you all watch it and/or share it on social media, the longer I’ll be gainfully employed slangin’ jokes for a living. I don’t want to go back to picking digital cotton on the corporate plantation. Please support and share. Plus, you never know when I’ll show up onscreen. 😉

Fun In Bethesda

My goal is to update this site more regularly.  Let’s start off with a clip of me telling some jokes at Villain and Saint in Bethesda, MD.

My 1st Hometown Show

I’ve gone onstage all over the country, but last month was the first time I ever got to perform in my hometown of Fredericksburg, VA. It was special to me as a lot of relatives got to see me perform for the first time. I have placed the video below. Shout out to Alex Scott and the good folks at Liberty Laughs.



WPFW 89.3 Resistance Comedy Fundraiser

Today I had the privilege of appearing as a guest on 89.3 WPFW’s “Business Matters” show hosted by Andy Shallal(owner of Busboys and Poets) and Nizam Ali(owner of Ben’s Chili Bowl, Ben’s Next Door & Ben’s Upstairs). Look for the October 30 episode of Business Matters to listen to it. I had a great time laughing with the visionaries behind two of my favorite places in the city, venues in which I’ve performed numerous times. I was there to promote the fundraiser I’m on raising money for WPFW, the Resistance Comedy Show. Tickets are $40 and the donation goes directly to funding the station and it’s programming.

Thursday, November 9 from 7PM-10PM
Westminster Church
400 I (EYE) Street NW
Washington, DC 20024

All of the comedy will be political in nature, so put on your woke shoes and join us! Click here to get your tickets.
