I am getting back on stage!


This week, I will be all about NYC.  The biggest show will be at the Eastville Comedy Club in New York City on Wednesday, October 24 at 8:30 pm.  The tickets are free but reservations are required.  Email  Please let me know if you can make it so I can get a sense of how many people I have coming.


If you are in Washington, DC, I will put my upcoming schedule up as soon as it is ready.


Hope to see you out somewhere!




You won’t want to miss this

Tonight, some of the best DC area comedians will perform at the Velvet Lounge.  They include:

Emily Ruskowski – will also host
Valerie Paschall
Mariya Alexander
Tyler Richardson
Alyson Chadwick
Pete Bergen

You won’t get to see this much talent for $10 any other time.  Seriously.

The Velvet Lounge is at 915 U Street, NW — across from the U Street Metro.  This starts early (at 7) but probably won’t start on time so if you can come but will be late, no worries.

The money is going to a good cause, you can read about that here:

For Dariana

Dariana Verdi

In February 2011, four year old Dariana Verdi was diagnosed with a very agressive brain cancer.  On February 16, she lost her battle with the disease.

To honor her, a great line-up of Washington, DC area comedians will perform on Friday, March 2nd at the Velvet Lounge at 7:00 pm.  Tickets are $10 but if you are inclined to give more, we won’t say no.  All proceeds will go to Dariana’s family and the Live for Today fund that helps other children and their families going through this.



The entertainment:

  • Emily Ruskowski
  • Tyler Richardson
  • Valerie Paschall
  • Mariya Alexander
  • And, of course, Alyson Chadwick (Should I start talking about myself in the 3rd person? No?  Didn’t think so.)

So what are we talking about?

Fundraiser for Dariana
Friday, March 2nd at 7:00 pm
The Velvet Lounge, 915 U Street, NW, WDC

Please note:  Dariana was my college roommate’s (Alison Koslow) daughter.  Ali and her wife Sue are two of the kindest people on the planet.  This is a very personal event for me so I am going to ask you all to spread the word so we can really celebrate Dariana’s life and the type of kindness these two wonderful people inspire through example.
