33997   Reader submitted blog Lights, Camera, ACTING!
Tuesday April 15th, 2014 – Island Lake, IL    One of the first warnings I heard when I started doing standup comedy was “actor/comedian” = “neither/nor”. I think there’s a lot of truth to that to a certain degree, just as the Confucius saying &ldqu...

Friday April 11th, 2014 – Island Lake, IL    I read a fascinating interview with Mel Brooks a long time ago where he said that every one of his movies was a major source of disappointment to him. He told how whenever he’d begin each project he’d have grandiose visio...

33997   Reader submitted blog Southern Exposure
Thursday April 10th, 2014 – Chicago, IL    The next time I say something to bash The South, someone needs to give me a swift kick in the hush puppies to shut my mouth. And while I am not necessarily a fan of the culture as a whole, I do know quite a few truly sweet people that ...

Wednesday April 9th, 2014 – Columbia City, IN    I have said it often, and I will continue to repeat it indefinitely whenever necessary – one of the greatest benefits of being an entertainer in general is being able to cross paths with quality people and kindred spirits I...

33997   Reader submitted blog Tortured Souls
Monday April 7th, 2014 – Island Lake, IL    I’m still feeling sad about John Pinette’s sudden passing. I wish I could say I was surprised, but unfortunately the only surprise was that he lived as long as he did. The man did have his demons, but that doesn’t ta...

Friday April 4th, 2014 – Chicago, IL    Just as it is in life in general, breaks in show business can come from anywhere at any time. If I could know where to be and when to be there, I would obviously show up. But it’s not that easy, and that’s why this business ca...
