When I was a kid growing up in Urbana, Ohio, entertainment options were limited. There were always high-school sporting events to watch. Older kids would “cruise the lot” (I never understood this. They would literally just drive in circles in the big empty parking lot behind K-Mart). And of course, there was the movie theatre. It was a twin-cinema theatre with second-run movies for cheap prices. If you were special, you had a friend who worked there and could watch for free from the viewing booth upstairs. The theatre was originally opened in 1918 as a Vaudeville Theatre and named … Read more

On Saturday night, I entertained over 450 smiling faces at Hollywood Casino in Columbus, OH. They were employees of the award-winning Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, The Wilds, Zoombezi Bay Waterpark and Safari Golf Course.

I can honestly say that Jack was the most fun audience volunteer I’ve ever had onstage. It was a sight to see when Jack legitimately thought I had shredded his 20-dollar bill. … Read more
Check out some of the Fall 2013 Tour Dates! There are a few days off in between some of the shows, so I’ll be visiting some touristy things like Niagara Falls and Disney World.

Let me know what I should check out!
That’s how many individual flights I took over the last couple weeks. From Baltimore MD, Chicago IL, Flagstaff AZ, Alpine TX, Lyndonville VT, Melbourne FL, to Bloomington & Mattoon IL with a few dates in Ohio sprinkled in, this has been a whirlwind tour so far. 21 total flights in just 12 days of traveling. Despite the fact that I spend over 200 days a year on the road, I’ve been coping pretty well. On some days, I have extreme travel adversity – like last month when I had 4 cancelled flights, 3 delays and a closed airport and STILL … Read more
