Currently on Hiatus

About a year ago I moved to Southern California. I always expected to live here one day. Back when I began my stand-up comedy adventure, I thought that’d be because of some big career break, like to work on my new TV show. But sadly….

Twenty-five years of working the road has taken it’s toll. Turns out a guy can only take so much rejection. But instead of throwing in the towel, I decided to embark on something new. So here I am, these many years later, living in Long Beach instead of Hollywood. And instead of working at a studio lot, I got a mundane job in the real world.

My new goal is to pursue my creative efforts in my free time in this land where dreams can come true (within driving distance anyway, rent in Hollywood is beyond my means). I haven’t done much stand-up yet, but I am hard at work on a writing project. It’s a work of fiction. A novel. I’d like to think of it as literature. It’s about a bitter aging homeless comic who’s about ready to snap. The main character is loosely based on myself and the story is drawn from my many years of lonely painful doggedly determined existence.

I do plan to return to the comedy stage. I’m working on retooling the act with an eye towards making it more commercially viable. I just booked my first headline gig in over a year. It’s next month at a VFW in a small town a few hours from here. Perfect venue for my style of comedy which is, as the title of my comedy special from Stand Up! Records suggests, Belongs in a Bar. That show promises to be a sell-out. Hope it’s the beginning of something new.

Sometimes when you get knocked down, I think it’s best to just stay on the ground.
