September was rolling along just dandy-like until the 21st. I came home from a lunch appointment and told my wife that I didn’t feel right and was going to bed. Two days later, I tested positive for C-VID. We immediately called a home healthcare company and they began treating me with every medication known to […]
It’s time for another video where my clients brag on me a bit. You’d think I’d be embarrassed with this kind of self-promotion, but somehow it doesn’t even phase me.
Jerry Seinfeld and Sarah Jessica Parker are sitting in a small café shooting an episode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. Their meal is winding down and the subject of the check comes up. Sarah feigns picking up the check and asks, “Are you waiting for me to offer up some cash?” They have a […]
Sooner or later you’re going to mess up. Everyone does. But what you do about your mistake is the thing that defines you both personally and professionally.

Against all odds, he established himself as an in-demand comedian on the comedy club circuit. He built a loyal following of his off-center, politically-incorrect humor by concentrating on […]
Tell me, what do Tom Hiddleston, Emma Thompson, Kelly Clarkson, Tessa Thompson, and James Earl Jones have in common? Sure, they’re all hugely successful celebrities, but what else? What would they have in common with Philippe Petit (the French high-wire artist who became famous for his high-wire walk between the Twin Towers at the World […]
Back in 2018, I had the pleasure of speaking at the Professional Skaters Association annual meeting and a nicer bunch of folks you never will meet. During the program, I walked over to an audience member to talk to her (which, due to social distancing, I’m not doing at present), and helped her from her […]
