                                  THE WHOLE STORY!

      This June (7th through the 10th) I will be recording my first live album of stand-up, at Seattle's Historic Comedy Underground. My plan is to create a unique package, both artistically and audibly, by utilizing the talents of hard rock producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Isis, Minus the Bear) and cartoonist Mark Allender. I'm hoping to craft a project that not only captures my live act, but also my fondness for loud music, art and the spectacle of a big production!               

                               WHAT ABOUT A DVD?!

    We're also planning on capturing all six shows on video, in the hopes of producing a documentary and live DVD (which I'm hoping will include an interview segment with my Mom, who is hilarious!!). 

This Kickstarter project would help pay for the engineer, production team, editing, mixing (sound and video), mastering, duplication, art and layout design and some advertising in local magazines, prior to the weekend of shows. In return, we will offer signed copies of the finished CD/DVD, shirts, Hoodies, event tickets as well as album and DVD credits!! 

                          WHY IS THIS SUCH A BIG DEAL?!

I first visited the Comedy Underground when I was 13 years old. It's the club where I performed my first open mic!  Ever since the day I stepped into that windowless basement, I have dreamt of headlining that stage. After 29 years, my dream is finally coming true. It would be amazing to capture these shows and make something magical out it.

Thanks in advance, for your time and help!!
