Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I performed standup comedy almost every night of the week. Usually after that, I go to different karaoke clubs where I get up and create songs about what the audience is doing as they are doing it. I am constantly looking for new ways to entertain and be funny. I've also been challenged by 26 rappers, or MC's , as they're called, and won in every occurrence. I also sit in at many blues jams and play electric guitar while creating improvised songs about the audience and their current actions. I am always working to stretch my brain and make it function better. My goal is to be the best that I can be without joining the armed services. At this time, there is no one, whether Comedian or musician, I can create the improv songs that I do.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
People have always been saying, "What are you? A comedian?"
What types of customers have you worked with?
Most of the time I am performing in comedy clubs. Sometimes, I function as a host or emcee for all types of events. My favorite type of performance is a private party or meeting where I am supplied with background information on the more notorious members of the group. Then I write material to "roast" them. In a nice way. After that I basically wing it. My best show are when I make it up as I go along. All my performances are really based on whatever is going on while I am performing and bringing the audience into a show created, on the spot, just for them.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Every person is different. If I understand what you want to do with your new sense of humor skills, I can tailor the education to make your control of the skills natural and automatic. Everyone is unique. Your differences will make it easier for you to be remembered. And appreciated. Even if you just want to enjoy humor through understanding, this will allow you the insider's view of what is and why things are funny. Just understanding will make you a more fun person to be with. AND it will show you the brighter side of life.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Live Comedy Performance is the best. Seinfeld gave up a million a week to go back to live comedy.
