I am a comedian based in Los Angeles, California.
Before moving to Los Angeles, I spent five years working on my craft in Atlanta, GA, where I became a regular performer at comedy clubs Laughing Skull Lounge, The Punchline, and Uptown Comedy Corner in addition to being a regular at popular alternative venues StarBar and Kat’s Cafe.
I have opened for headliners Maria Bamford, John Witherspoon, Rickey Smiley, Big Jay Oakerson, Donnell Rawlings, Josh Blue, Nick Kroll / Jason Mantzoukas / Seth Morris (Morzouknick), Nick Griffin, Heather McDonald, George Wilburn, Clayton English, Jimmy Shubert, Thomas Dale, Manon Mathews, and Michael Colyar.
I tour with ‘Hope This Helps,’ my live show that turns the best of my Facebook trolling into visual stand-up comedy.
The show has been at San Francisco Sketchfest from 2017 – 2019. It has been at Cape Fear Comedy Festival, Accidental Comedy Festival, and comedy venues Laughing Skull Lounge, StarBar, and Relapse Theater in Atlanta, Union Hall, QED, and Annoyance Theater in New York, Comedy Corner Underground in Minneapolis, Voodoo Comedy Playhouse in Denver, Comedy Underground and Jewelbox Theater in Seattle, PianoFight in San Francisco, and Comedy Central Stage, Lyric Hyperion Theater and The Broadwater in Los Angeles.
I have appeared as a witness, plaintiff, and defendant on three separate court television shows. My friends and I created the cases themselves and sued each other to get on television. I wrote and performed short sketches for TBS and made appearances on NPR’s Morning Edition. And someone wrote their college thesis on my trolling antics (not making that up).
I can be reached via email or through the Troll Request section of this website. Or if you want to text me, what the hell.
