Up Coming Shows

Comedy Magic in Portsmouth, VA and more…

Hey everyone. It’s Tuesday and I wanted to talk about an upcoming show I’ll be a part of in Portsmouth, VA this Friday. Also wanted to talk about some great show I was a part of the last few weeks.

First let’s talk about the show that is coming up this Friday on November 14th at Bruttis in Olde Towne. I’ve preformed many times at Bruttis and love coming back. This week I will be part of a great line up, and all for a good cause. Six year old Reginald Charity has Cancer. We’re raising funds to assist with medical bills. Hosted by Lamont Ferguson the line-up includes Alex Scott, Rob Reiblod, Richard Jackson, Joy Julian and myself. Show starts at 9pm and the cover is $10.

I was wanted to talk about all the fun I had a few weeks ago back on October 25th performing at Langley Air Force Base. The show was put on my local comedian Team Fred. We had a nice turn out in a really nice venue on the base. The aforementioned Alex Scott headlined the show and total crushed it. Also there was my buddies Jon Small and Derrick Brooks.

Also on the 29th of October I was at the Virginia Beach Funny Bone as part of the Quincy Carr Quality Comedy Series. I first want to thank everyone who bought tickets from me. I sold all 15 of the tickets I needed! We filled up the first ring of the Funny Bone but man they sound like the house was packed! Everyone did a great job and I had a lot of fun. The show also included Lamont Ferguson, Kim Howell, and surprise guest from Los Angeles, Laura Hayden.

Hey! I’m on a Podcast!

Ok, so it has been a good while since last I posted here. But here’s to trying to make up for lost time.

I think the biggest thing to mention is my upcoming appearance at the Virginia Beach funny Bone in Quincy Carr Presents: The Quality Comedy Series. I don’t often get a chance to perform at the Funny Bone so when I do I am always very excited. The show is Wednesday, October 29th at 8pm. Tickets are $12 and you find out more details here. I personally will be selling tickets and if a sell enough I will get an extended set! So buy my tickets!

Also a neat little thing I did in the last week was join our friends over at ThereforeIGeek.com for episode 16 of their Podcast. It was a blast sharing old Comic Con stories. Warning there is ADULT Language. Run time 1 hour 10 minutes. Listen to it here.

I do want to talk about a couple shows I did over the past week or so. On Monday the 6th I along with a group of local comics put on a show up in Newport News VA at the restaurant Circa 1918. It was a lot of fun and the best way to describe this is “Art House Comedy”. The room is small and dimly light but they packed it out this a cool and hip crowd. I was wowed by how good my buddy Jon Small killed it before I when up. Jon is just so talented I can’t stand it. He really put me on the spot to deliver. I really hope they do another show soon. It was almost 2 ½ years between this show and the last one at Circa 1918.

This past Friday I performed at the After Dark Spectacular variety Show at the great Baltimore area magic shop Denny & Lee’s. It was a combination burlesque/magic/sideshow. My buddy up in PA, Cam  McMillion put it together and hosted the show. I was thrilled to get a chance to perform with my good friend Jesse McCarly again. I think the last time we did a show together was nearly 18 months ago in York, PA. It was also great to work with two very talented burlesque dancers, Private Tails and Lady Rockwell. I love doing shows like this. I really wish I could more of them.

That’s it for me for now. Stay tune for updates on upcoming shows and other goings on.
