Should You Bond With Stranger’s Kids?

This happens to me quite often, so I decided to share it. I was sitting next to this lady with a young toddler in the airport, and the kid keeps coming to me to play, he’s cracking up having a ball, while I’m just sitting there straight faced not saying or doing anything, but he’s […]

Kaepernick as the Pawn

Silence really speaks volumes, but I don’t really trust anything. Colin Kaepernick begins his style of protesting, and strong feelings are felt on both sides. There’s people in disbelief that black people are treated differently from other US citizens, and then barely two games into the season two more black men are murdered at the […]

Thought It Was A Carry-on

Oscars So White

I love dolphins and don’t have anything against them, but I have more immediate issues to fight. I don’t want an Oscar if you’re just gonna give it to me for some kind of sympathy […]

After My Show in Denver

Honorable Mention: What stood out about last night’s show at the Denver Improv Comedy Club & Dinner Theater was that almost the entire crowd stayed afterwards in the lobby to hang out and chill. It’s cool that you can rock with a group for an hour and it doesn’t have to end after that. And it wasn’t […]
