“I was born at the Boston City Hospital on January 26, 1955. My first professional gig was at a bar called Wet Goods in Corning, NY on January 17, 1975. I did an hour and 20 minutes of material and made 48 dollars. I had been writing and rehearsing for that gig for eight months. I became a full time stand-up headliner in 1978 and still do that for a living.”

“I have been doing comedy professionally for over 15 years. I have traveled extensively and to many parts of this country few have dared to venture. I have worked at clubs, colleges, dead animal lodges, theatres and corporations appearing with many of the top headliners in the business. I have participated in numerous festivals including the Burbank Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Festival and The Women in Comedy Festival. I also won the Woody Herman Jazz award for my trumpet playing abilities but I’m not one to brag. I am a versatile comic who is at home telling jokes in front of nuns or biker dudes.”
