I have been told that my material is both clean and funny, providing a fresh perspective to comedy club stages.
After graduating from college, I accepted a position with a large accounting firm, providing consulting services to many large corporations while becoming a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). My former corporate career as an accountant led to the album title, “Outside the Box”. I chose to become a full-time comedian because I found more enjoyment making fun of Corporate America than I did actually being a part of it. I realize quitting your job to become a full-time comedian isn’t normal behavior for an accountant but my manager didn’t seem too disappointed.
Since then, I have been heard on The Bob & Tom Radio Network, seen in concert with Train, opened for Louie Anderson at resort casinos, and participated in The Boston Comedy Festival. Audiences across the country find that I am the adorably obnoxious guy they wish they had in their boring office, unless of course they were my manager.
After seven years of performing at comedy clubs and theaters across the country, I felt it was finally time to record a CD. I am proud of the unique style I have developed and the material that I have written. Now it will be easier for everyone to share it with their friends.
“Outside the Box” was recorded at Go Bananas Comedy Club in Cincinnati, OH and has been digitally mastered and professionally replicated. The quality of the recording recreates the experience of being at the live show. The album includes a few unique moments where I ad-lib with the audience, providing a twist listeners have not heard before.
