Hi. Welcome to my comedy page. You're in the right place if one of these describes you:
Here are some things about me:
I'm from Lexington, Kentucky but I live in New York City. I started doing comedy while living in Beijing. I've also performed in Shanghai, Suzhou, Tianjin, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Seoul, Manila, Cebu, Sydney, and London.
Do you need something that sounds like a credit? In 2014 I won the Beijing Comedy Competition, which is another way of saying that three drunk expat magazine writers liked my bird noises.
