The Return of Draw Egan

Posted on Feb 27, 2020 in Shows

I got contacted more or less out of the blue and asked if I wanted to work on this project, re-writing a silent movie. Justin Sherburn and his band / multimedia wizard team Montopolis were going to screen the silent western, The Return of Draw Egan (1916) and provide a score of Ennio Morricone music […]

The Year in Review Show 2019

Posted on Dec 19, 2019 in Shows

It’s time again for The Year in Review show. Yes! You can’t see it but I’m fist pumping out of control over here. NO, not like THAT. Y’know, an excited fist pump? Like something a tennis player would do after a great… racket whack? Hold on, still fist pumping. Just two more. There we go. […]

Closing out the decade at Cap City

Posted on Dec 17, 2019 in Shows

That’s a dramatic way of saying I’ll be headlining Cap City Comedy Club Thursday, December 26 to Saturday December 28. One show Thursday, two shows Friday and Saturday. Doing shows at Cap is always fun and getting 5 shows to stretch out and get a little loopy is a real joy. After a few toe-dips, […]

The Banter Show is back (and then gone again)

Posted on Dec 4, 2019 in Shows

For one night only, the Banter Show returns to the Velveeta Room! Last February’s show ended Banter’s run at the Velv, as Ximena and I prepared for our baby (Baby update: baby is great). But when Pat Dean at the Velveeta Room asked us if we wanted to do a one-off show to close out […]

Knuck Deep rides off into the sunset

Posted on Jun 30, 2019 in Shows

Reposted from Six Shooter’s Facebook page: Big news! The July 10th Six Shooter will be the last one hosted by Knuck Deep. It seems their touring schedule is too demanding for them to continue hosting a monthly comedy show. We assure you this has nothing to do with the ongoing legal case, the State of […]

My wife and I are expecting a baby. Did you know that? I mentioned it on instagram so I just assumed everyone knows. Well, we are. Due date is mid March.

The Real Housewives of Austin

Posted on Nov 28, 2018 in Shows

I’ve done some dumb things for my show Waterbed including assembling, filling, draining and destroying an actual waterbed – the destruction wasn’t planned, but became unavoidable. HOWEVER – this upcoming show ISN’T one of them. The Real Housewives of Austin Live Reunion Special might be the most ambitious show I’ve put up. Once again, I’m […]

Headlining the Velveeta Room

Posted on Aug 19, 2018 in Shows

I think this might be my fifth time headlining the Velv. The last two were in the summer with Amber Bixby opening, so why ignore a winning formula? Three shows this coming weekend. One Friday at 9pm, two Saturday at 9 & 11. But heads up – the Friday late show is The Banter Show, […]
