Tonight I’m releasing my 4th comedy album.
I’m doing a weekend of shows at The Rendezvous Jewel Box Theater in Seattle. This Friday Oct. 13th at 8pm and Saturday at 8pm & 10pm You can get Show and Ticket information here.
Look I don’t really talk much about my career, or accomplishments. There are people that see me every day who have no idea the amount of energy I put into being a great comic. I have family members that don’t know the sacrifices I’ve made. I pretty
much downplay everything. It helps to keep me level, and it lessens the blow publicly when things don’t work out. AND I’VE HAD PLENTY OF THINGS NOT WORK.
But allow me to peel back the curtain.
I have been working on this comedy album for 3 years. It’s been an incredibly overwhelming process, and far more intense than I thought it would be. Originally I thought it would take about a year. However, somewhere in-between not signing a recording contract and hiring an engineer. I realized that I had the opportunity to pour myself into the biggest project of my career. Not only that, but is probably the last project I will have complete control over. So I just took complete ownership. I made sure I didn’t leave anything unexplored. Which is was it took me 3 years.
The last year has been overwhelming. There is a lot of life happening around me. The same way life happens to everyone. But for me I had this project that I had already invested in. A project that ended costing $3000 monetarily, and countless hours of labor. It no longer made sense to reverse course and sign with a label. At the same time there was no way I was going to get this project done by the fall. And that’s when things got real.
I decided to double down. For the last 8 months I have been working virtually every hour to finish this project. However, I still had more normal comedy work, show producing, performing, and LIFE is still happening. So, routinely I would wake up around 5:30 and go to bed at midnight, just to do it all again. Progress was slow. Not having the experience or resources of a production company. Meant I had to learn a lot. I literally planned, designed, and distributed everything. Rather it was a download card, CD Panels, Posters, or flyers. I had to figure it. And eventually I finished it.
So it is here! I have a lot of pride in how everything turned out. Truth is a lot of it come out better than I thought it would.
