Hi friends. It's been a while. Yeah, I know... I should have written more and more often and blah blah blah. I'm a bad person. But here are the CliffsNotes: I've been working on the Norwegian Gem cruise ship, performing improv and sketch comedy for The Second City. In my free time I've been writing, trying to figure out what I'm doing with my life and working on my tan... and making this video I'd like to share with you all. This was created for Cover Me Badd - a cover band project created by the incredibly talented duo of Anne Trickey and JaMile Jackson. Music was created and recorded by Cameron Ford, videography by Morgan Owens, and silly bits written and edited by me. The song is, of course, Psycho Killer by Talking Heads. Enjoy!
I love this picture so much, mostly because of the face RC is making. He's the guy on the right in the red shirt. He looks so dumb. And I say that with love. And while laughing at his dumb face.
So RC, myself, and the other guys in the picture (Matt and Darius) make up most of my improv team Big Bennessy, and we're going to be performing tonight in North Hollywood at the Sherry Theatre at 9pm. It should be a really fun show, with great improv comedy all night. And the best thing? It's free! Ok, second best, because, again, look at RC's dumb face. So good.

Hi all -
I just wanted to take a chance to share this short film that my friends RC Fill, Steven Sears and I made (Steve and I wrote and star in it, RC directed). We've been accepted to a few small film festivals (more information about that coming soon), but I'd like to give the internet a chance to see it as well.
ENJOY! Also check out our IMDB page to learn more about the awesome cast and crew of this film.
This weekend, I'll be returning to Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center with the cast of Doctor Who Live! Last year we performed to a packed house - we even had to turn people away at the door - so make sure you get there early if you want to see the show!
Our panel is this Saturday, November 1st, at 4pm, Room: 306AB
We'll also be bringing our Dalek friend and roaming the convention floor before the show, so if you'd like to grab a pic with us, find this guy:
Who else is going to be there you ask? Well how do you feel about Gwendoline Christie & Alfie Allen (from Game of Thrones), John Barrowman (Captain Jack from Doctor Who), and Stan Lee himself? You feel good about those people? THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT!
