I performed in the Bad Theater Fest in Me and My Birdie! An Ornithological Rock Opera on October 29th and November 6th of 2015 and at The PIT in July 2016. It  had a run at The PIT October thru December of 2016.

SUMMER 2015 in New York I did a sold-out staged live reading of an episode of The Hills with my favorite comedian friends. We did The X-Files, Degrassi, Nick & Jessica’s Family Christmas Special, and The Steve Harvey show in the proceeding months.

You can also see my staged comedy show of my site Rocks At The Bottom called AN HOUR OF FAILURE, which I run monthly. It was featured in TIME OUT NEW YORK! Learn more here. Previous live guests include Josh Gondelman (Last Week Tonight with John Oliver), Anna Drezen (SNL), Chris Thayer (Adam DeVine’s House Party), and many more!

I do improv at UCB in New York. August 2016 I appeared at UCB in “The Goon Squad”, directed by Joey Price – an improv show inspired by A Visit From The Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. In May 2016, I appeared at the UCB Chelsea theater in “House Hunt”, directed by Erik Tanouye. It’s an improv show based on and parodying HGTV shows.

My indie teams in New York have performed in UCB’s Indie Cagematch in March 2015, January 2016, August 2016, March 2017, and the Del Close Marathon Indie Cagematch in June 2015 & 2016, in which we made it to the final three competing teams out of hundreds who submitted. It was also featured in the New York Times!
