5 Star Rated Comedy … Did I really do this?

So a few years ago San Diego comedian Gina Manning recommended me to her then partner Al Gavi, saying I might be a good fit for Comedy Heights. A little hole in the wall comedy show in University Heights every other Saturday. I’d only been a stand up comic for a short time so Al took a risk taking me on board … but like the say ‘the rest is history’. I promised Al ‘If we build it they’ll come’ … and it worked. Al is the best partner ever! He just said ‘ok’ to all of my ideas and I went for it. I came up with a mission that kept up focused on our goals and we went to a weekly ‘clean comedy’ show packed with a diverse mix of strong comedians and fresh new talent. It’s worked. 2 years later we are still strong as ever and it’s my favorite room hands down because the audience rocks! We build a ‘kill room’ that comedians love and the audience keeps coming back to. Yay Team! It takes a village 🙂

Comedy Heights Rocks!

Most Saturdays if I’m not booked elsewhere, I’m hosting my favorite show on the planet – Comedy Heights at Twiggs. Al Gavi and I have built this show into one of the city’s best ever. Top lined ups every Saturday and brilliant audiences who are super friendly and love to laugh. Last Comic Standing’s Dat Phan and Taylor Tomlinson love our stage, as do so many other headlining and touring comedians who done everything from Kimmel to Comedy Central and beyond. Come and check out the show any Saturday 8pm. Doors open 730pm. Parking can be a bit tough so come prepared with a pocket full of patience 🙂 See you there soon.


Sneak Peak thru the ‘Keyhole’

Friday Comedy in Pt Loma returns in April at the bar formerly known as ‘Reds’ … we’ll be welcoming the ‘Keyhole Cafe’! You won’t see one bit of Red in the newly revamped bar/coffee stop. It’s fabulous! Turquoises and reclaimed woods. So you know … I’ll probably be hanging out there during the day as well. It’ll be just a few more weeks of waiting and then Comedy Heights will be back in Pt Loma every Friday. Woohoo! Can’t wait!
