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...

Reader submitted blog Scratching And Clawing
Monday April 14th, 2014 – Island Lake, IL    I don’t often give myself credit for a lot of things, but one thing I have always been able to do better than almost anyone is absorb an inordinate amount of life’s punches. I have had more than the average journeyman&rsq...

Reader submitted blog New Mentor Needed
Sunday April 13th, 2014 – Island Lake, IL    I speak often of what a tremendous mentor my grandfather was to me – and he was – but there are a few things he never got to that I had to painfully learn on my own. He died when I was only 18, so maybe he just didn&rsquo...

Reader submitted blog High Hopes And Daring Dreams
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...

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 ...

Reader submitted blog Squishy Man
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...

Reader submitted blog Fantastic Friends
Tuesday April 8th, 2014 – Milwaukee, WI    It was back home to Milwaukee today to attend a seminar held especially for me by my friend Lynn Miner. Lynn is a magician among many other things, and we met when he was a student in one of my first comedy classes back in the mid &lsq...

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...

Reader submitted blog Thank You David Letterman
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...

Reader submitted blog Pulling Backup Duty
Thursday April 3rd, 2014 – Rosemont, IL    I’m pulling backup duty this week, and I’m glad to get it. I’ve got four nights of work at Zanies in Chicago at two of their locations, but unfortunately it’s where the action isn’t. Jeff Garlin from the s...
