You're at an open-mic right now. Do you still feel anxious as you wait for your turn?
Sometimes when I don't have time to prepare. But honestly, I always have time. It's just a matter of if I use the time or not. My set is on my hand tonight!
Ha. A true example of a handyman. Oh no, the puns! What would you say is your strongest feature on first appearance?
I think I seem so awkward on stage that it can either be really relieving or make people uncomfortable. Both are useful for getting in the headspace for my kind of humor. Oh, also my moustache right now.
Yes. That is impressive, sir. I forgot to tell you that last I saw you. How many years have you been at the comedy game now?
I'm at 4 and a half years right about now
4.5 in Bozeman years, that's what, 11? I say that because you seem to have a great pulse on Bozeman's comedy scene. If you could change something about Bozeman, what would it be?
If I could only change one thing about Bozeman it'd probably be to have a dedicated comedy venue with constant acts. Stand-up, improv, sketch. It's so hard trying to build an audience and a community without a venue that's dedicated to it.
That's very true, it’s a huge motivator for comics as a whole, to have that space. On a more face-to-face level, how DO you keep that moustache reeled in so effortlessly?
I sleep in a cowboy hat.
Does that force the mustache to behave? Non-Montanans may need a deeper explanation!
Under the covers, I am sleeping in a cowboy hat. Comics don't have time for curling moustaches. It has to happen behind the scenes.
Ha. There's the secret! Now I know! Well, I'm sure the crowd here will appreciate you. Dreyfest is excited for your arrival! Thank you for your time!
Yeah man! I'm stoked!
