Very excited that I got invited back to the Art Outside Festival! Over 20 comics, loads of incredible acts Friday through Sunday. Think Burning Man meets Woodstock meets something a little smaller but just as cool… get there!
When I first started stand up I had a lot of weirdo ideas and sometimes, when they were just right, they would work. Those times, when the weird thing worked, are some of the most gratifying performances I can remember. As I performed more often and opportunities started coming my way I closed up this sandbox of oddities. “You never know who’s watching, it’s time to get serious.” I told myself. While this is true and taking comedy seriously, to some extent, is a good idea, it’s important to get in the sandbox from time to time. Here is a video of me getting sandy again.
