Barging into Eclectic’s Patchwork Play Fest
I’ll be in the dark and hilarious short play Dead Game by Lisa Stratton, directed by Lisa Murray, and starring Eileen Vorbach, Michelle Thompson-Hay, and yours truly as a jaded, euthanasia-friendly nurse!
Returning to LIVE THEATER with Avalanche
My first foray back since that deadly airborne virus became a part of all our lives! Avalanche Theatre invited me to be a part of their New Play Summit. (Avalanche. Summit. I see what you did there.) I was typecast again as “bumbling stepfather” in a reading of the cutting, hilarious WasteHouse by Marjorie Muller. Damn did it feel good to make people laugh in-person again.
Taking Out the Trash for InSinkErator
And they said I was a garbage actor. Who’s laughing now, huh?!
Oh, jokes. This fun spot for the good folks at InSinkErator, the world’s largest manufacturer of garbage disposals, will be popping up online and on TV.
Buttling in Clue: Stay-at-Home Version
When I saw an audition notice for Clue: Stay-at-Home Version, I could not resist. And so I got to be Wadsworth the butler in the Kirk Players‘ clever, remotely-recorded edition of the iconic 1985 comedy. Stepping into this role and getting to laugh through many a zoom rehearsal with this lovely cast and crew was frickin’ wonderful.
Voiceover-ing for George Webb
Damn nice to have recently booked some more voiceover work for George Webb Restaurants! I’m starving just looking at this!
Soliloquizing for CenterStage’s Shakespeare Online
I’ve been most fortunate to have some Shakespeare to work on in this pandemic time, thanks to the good folks at CenterStage in Lake Forest.
Winning at the Midwest Film Fest with Dubious Ruffians
It was a treat to have a short film I did be a part of the badass Midwest Film Festival, and lo and behold, Dubious Ruffians won Best Film of the Night!
I absolutely love this short and now it is available to view online in its entirety!
Directing improv’s Queen Bs
I’m one lucky son of a gun because since 2014 I’ve had the joy of directing the Queen Bs ensemble. You can spot the Bs performing on stages around Northwest Chicagoland, as well as teaching workshops or entertaining for private events.
Moving on up for ComEd
You’ve heard of ComEd. They give you the electricity! And I’m part of a campaign about giving it to you cheaper! Because I’m pretty sure we all need to lower our operating costs, am I right?
