Why is this happening?

I am a entertainer and a self starter. After doing mainstream films, touring music and writing and recording indie shorts, the next logical step was to begin putting on shows that reflected all my interests. I wanted to see what it would be like to mesh Gotham Comedy a Club with The Lyricists Lounge. I’m inspired by the format of the Chappell’s Show, Wild N Out, and Lyricist Lounge while being tickled by the comedy of Mitch Hedburg, Robin Harris (and Williams), plus Seinfeld.
