Check out some of the Fall 2013 Tour Dates! This isn’t a complete list – additional dates are still being added. It looks like when all is said and done, this tour will bring me to around 40-42 cities in something like 18 different states! 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. But most of what I’ll be seeing is small-town America. I want to see all the interesting things there are to see in these small towns. Is there a city near you on the tour? Let me know what I should check out!

 

I’ll be constantly updating social media followers throughout the tour on my twitter and facebook.

I’ve often get asked while on tour who makes the original printed shirts and hoodies I wear onstage. The company is Choonimals – a really great group of dudes in Brooklyn who have been friends since forever. They’re good people and their art is really cool. They’ve agreed to give MK fans a special 15% discount on their goods! Just go to Choonimals.com and enter the discount code:¬†ABRACADABRA.

I’m honored to announce that this year I will be spending the Christmas Season with the troops as part of a Navy Entertainment tour. For security reasons, I can’t give too many details about the tour at this point, but¬†please keep checking my Facebook Page and Twitter feed as the tour is happening for photos, video and more. One of the greatest honors I have had as an entertainer has been presenting my magic to the brave men and women in uniform and I look forward to this opportunity to do that again this year.

On July 16, I headlined the first ever Columbus Brew Ha Ha, a beer and comedy festival that featured comedians from all over, sketch comedy competitions, beer tasting, bands and SNL’s Garrett Morris. The following photos were taken by Heather Wack of Haute Stuff Studio. They are, in my opinion, some of the best live shots I’ve ever gotten of my show. Please take a minute to “Like” Haute Stuff on Facebook. Enjoy these photos! I’m sure you’ll be seeing some of them popping up in promo!

I was recently named “Best in Show” by Campus Activities Magazine for my achievement of a perfect score on Artist Report Cards from shows on my 2012 Spring tour. After shows, campuses typically fill out an “artist report card” with feedback, ratings and comments about my show.

I was the only performer in the book to earn a perfect 5/5 score! Thank you to all of the schools who submitted report cards on my show and for Campus Activities Magazine for recognizing my hard work.

I’m thrilled to have been asked to return to Shadowbox Live for their “Best of Shadowbox Live” show! I’ll be appearing on select dates from July 12 until August 18.



This is a great opportunity for those of you who didn’t get a chance to see my performance in Shadowbox Live’s “Smoke & Mirrors.” Please note, I will not be participating in the full run of “Best of Shadowbox Live” due to prior contracted appearances. Check my tour schedule to see which nights I’ll be appearing.

Also, don’t forget to come see me on July 16th as I headline the Columbus Brew Ha Ha Beer & Comedy Festival!
