From Funny Healthcare Speech:“How to Add Laughter to Life”

2013 marked my thirty year anniversary as a comedian. Here’s a 4 minute appreciation of some sights and moments I’ve been fortunate to experience.


“Thirty Year Thank You: 1983-2013”

For the opportunities I’ve been given and for the simple life around us that is a miracle — I am grateful.

Keep on rolling!

I’m an “entertainment with a message” speaker: the entertainment is stand-up comedy squeaky clean ‘above the belt’ and ‘between the ears’ the message, pulled from my experience living with muscular dystrophy and presented in short light anecdotes, is life is lived fullest not in spite of the problems but because of them.

I love my work, enjoy being around others who love theirs, and sharing with those who don’t a few ways they can, too. I weave into the entertainment recent findings in emotional intelligence research; why humor is essential in our lives, how one can develop a humor lens, and the notion that if we attend to a few core needs we and our colleagues can communicate more effectively, feel less of a divide between work and home, and find what suffices.
