Haven't logged on in a while, and a lot has happened. Here's the major stuff:
Had a couple big (for me) TV auditions: one for a co-starring role on Ben & Kate, and the other for a co-starring role on Raising Hope
Bank Roll got accepted into the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival, and it won Best Dramatic Feature, Best Supporting Actor for my friend/co-star Scott Bailey, and People's Choice Award - Best Picture
I co-produced a web series with my good friend Stu Altman, called Now That's Home Cooking, which can be found on Youtube.
- I booked a role in a promo for a new Game Show Network show, which will be hosted by Jeff Foxworthy. My shoot is this Saturday the 26th.
- Charlie Sanders, one of the writers of my favorite sketch show, Key & Peele, was a guest on my podcast, Podkward. And as it turns out, it was a dream come true for both of us.
- I finally started doing stand-up comedy this year, and after only two weeks of doing open mic nights around town, I've already gotten booked to do my first official, in-front-of-real-people show. It's going to be February 9th at Flappers Comedy Club in Burbank at 11:30pm. Other comedians will be there as well, including Laurie Kilmartin, Matt Champagne, and host/MC Richy Lala. I'll be doing 8 minutes, which will be my longest set to date. So excited!!!
That's about all for now. I'll try to not stay away for so long from now on. More stuff on the horizon. Stay tuned!
