All I can say is great things are happening right now, and I can't talk about any one of them yet.
But, since the last time I updated I was on Last Comic Standing on NBC and performed on Adam Devine's House Party on Comedy Central. I also performed at the Gilda's Laughfest and the Miami Comedy Central Festival. Which are all great things I loved doing.
But I need more of an update so let's talk about life.
It's been an interesting couple of years, stand up and writing have been getting better with work becoming steadier. The biggest transition is I lost 120 pounds about a year ago after a year of diet and exercise. I know that number is high, but what can I say, it happened. I gained that amount of weight in about four years, and let's just say I was always more of an indoor kid, so I wasn't a STRONG fat guy. I was a weak fat guy, the worst kind. Strong fat guys get cool nicknames like "Ox" or "Tank", people usually called me "Sweaty". Half the battle of weight loss as anyone larger knows, is dealing with depression, only recently have I tried to actually get a handle on it. Contrary to popular belief, most fat people aren't jolly. After talking with comics openly about my experiences, I found depression is something most comedians deal with and do not talk about. This time in my life has been about changing and trying my best, and feeling the difference. I can really tell you guys the benefits of taking life head on. Of course, I still feel intense cynicism to the world sometimes like a lot of people, but you can also decide to be positive to yourself and I've found that positivity breeds positivity. You just have to start. I just say that to anyone reading who maybe feels like I did. Anyway, enough sentimentality, onwards and upwards!
