Great news! I’ve received a nomination for the third year in a row for Campus Activities Magazine’s Entertainer of the Year Reader’s Choice Award! It’s a huge honor and I’m extremely appreciative to be listed among the OUTSTANDING talent nominated.
In both 2012 AND 2013, I was RUNNER UP for this award. With your help, we can make 2014 the year that I take it home!
There are so many incredible magicians out there. One of them, Michael Kent, will be performing at MSSU on Sept. 17. Trust me, you want to see him perform. Kent is brilliant and brutally funny.
I’ll be hounding him for an interview closer to his performance, mainly because I’ve interviewed him before. I know about how he got into magic and his unique presentation.
“Oh sure, Joe,” you might think. “You just know his story because you already know how he does all of his tricks, so, of course, you don’t care about that.”
Kent is a stage magician, and I’ve stuck to the world of close-up. I have no idea how Kent does some stuff, and I don’t care, because the story of how he got into magic is pretty interesting. How seriously he takes comedy is fascinating.
Great news! I’ve received a nomination for the second year in a row for Campus Activities Magazine’s Entertainer of the Year Reader’s Choice Award! It’s a huge honor and I’m extremely appreciative to be listed among the OUTSTANDING talent nominated.
You may remember that I had the honor of being nominated last year and came just a few votes from winning (it came down to the final few days of voting). You can help make the difference this year to help me win the award!
On February 9th, I’ll be performing a special family friendly fundraiser show to raise money for the Pickerington High School North Marching Band! This Comedy Night will feature an hour-long show that your whole family is welcome to enjoy. Opening act will be Ventriloquist David Crone. Tickets are $15. Call Debbie at 614-570-9955 for tickets.
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!
If you want a chance to see my full show in Columbus, this will be your best shot! I’ll be headlining at Brew Ha Ha, hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Garret Morris on Monday, July 16 with my entire full-length performance. This is where you’ll get to see stuff that I normally only perform on the road at colleges, cruise ships, clubs and other venues that begin with other letters. Brew Ha Ha is a beer and comedy festival that takes place for 3 days in Columbus, Ohio’s Historic Brewery District.
10pm on a weeknight too late for you? Stop being a pansy. Laughing at live entertainment is healthier than sitting on the couch watching Pawn Stars (Sidenote: my show probably has more to do with history than anything on the history channel).
I’d love to see all of my Columbus friends out at this show. To everyone who’s asking “when are going to perform around here?” July 16. Register here. See you there!
