I've been performing standup for about 15 months now, so very psyched to have made it onto the festival, let alone place 3rd amongst so many great comics.
As a former commissioner of NYC's Department of Transportation, Janette Sadik-Khan made more room for pedestrians, bikers, buses, and green spaces. In her new book, Street Fight (Handbook for an Urban Revolution), she makes mention of my "Tourist Lane" project. When I chatted with her on Twitter she told me the Tourist Lane story is one of her favorites to tell. Awwww shucks. Check out Janette's book here.
Happy to report I've been offered a residency at NYC's Broadway Comedy Club, meaning I'll get spots at four pro shows in December. I was also offered a spot in the upcoming Manhattan Comedy Festival. Thanks to all my friends who came to the audition show, appreciate the support.
Been tapped to be a creative contributor on TNT's new TV show "Michael Moore: Live from the Apocalypse." Even though it's not a full-time gig I'm still psyched, as Michael Moore has been a huge influence on me and my work for a long time. You can see more about the show here at Indiewire.
