“No Backup Plan” – Teaser Trailer #1

Published on April 15th, 2014

I was extremely excited this past January to announce that the “best of 260 Minutes” show and recording will be taking place on November 15, 2014! Today, I’m just as excited to release more details about the conclusion of what was the biggest undertaking of my career. The show will be called “No Backup Plan” – […]

Calgary’s First Time at Toronto Sketchfest

Published on February 25th, 2014

Kaboom… Hooray, a sketch troupe that I perform with almost every month, was recently selected to be a part of the Toronto Sketchfest in March! Not only is it exciting to be included in the annual event but it marks the first time that a Calgary-based group has appeared at the festival. Five of us […]

Un-Save That Date

Published on January 28th, 2014

If you remember a few weeks ago I announced the tentative date for the Best of 260 Minutes recording as September 27, 2014. I also mentioned that there was a 5% chance that something would change so, of course, it did. The new date for the special event will be November 15, 2014. The reason […]

The Return of Magically Delicious

Published on December 10th, 2013

Five years ago my good friends Tyler Wilson, Ryan Pilling and I teamed up to create a brand-new magic show. It was called Magically Delicious and the objective was to see what we could accomplish by joining our magic and comedic forces. The end result was a couple of pretty great magic effects, some good […]

Save The Date: September 27, 2014

Published on December 3rd, 2013

After a somewhat exhausting search throughout Calgary’s theatre spaces I have managed to reserve a place for the final “Best of 260 Minutes” recording! This will be the conclusion to my 260 Minutes project and feature the refined, polished material that was created over the year of five new minutes of stand-up per week. So, save […]

260 Minutes Overtime Continues

Published on November 6th, 2013

Since 260 Minutes wrapped up in May of this year I’ve been trying to find the time to write about the whole experience in length. I have notes from the whole 52 week process (beyond the material) that I just haven’t sat down and formalized yet. I finally realized why this is: I miss it. […]

First Vacation In A Decade

Published on September 10th, 2013

I don’t take many vacations. There’s really no reason to when you do what you love every single day (well, most days). I guess about once a decade I’ll go someplace where I’m somewhat unreachable and my cell phone doesn’t really work. Along with my friend, Kyle Francis, I traveled through Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia […]

A Much Anticipated Weekend

Published on June 11th, 2013

My upcoming weekend performing at Yuk Yuk’s Calgary is, perhaps, the show that I’ve looked most forward to in quite some time. Not only do I thoroughly enjoy performing in that club but I get to work with two of my all-time favourite comedians/people: Lori Gibbs and Sean Lecomber. I get excited when the opportunity to work […]

The Homestretch

Published on April 16th, 2013

It was almost a year ago that I began 260 Minutes – in fact, it was 46 weeks ago. Since May 21, 2012, I’ve stepped onto a stage 46 times and told (about) five new minutes of stand-up each time. Some of it has been great. Some of it has not. (I won’t ever calculate […]

A Little Bit of Press

Published on April 2nd, 2013

This coming weekend I’m travelling to both Lethbridge and Okotoks to perform. On Friday night I’ll be performing in the windy city (that’s Lethbridge for those that have never lost a hat there) at Joe’s Garage. It’ll be my third appearance there and the first two were fun – so let’s make it a hat […]
