I went to an insurance orientation for the school district of Greenville County yesterday. If that sentence alone didn’t put you to sleep I’m assuming you must be on some sort of cocaine, and I wish you luck in all future endeavors. 

I had to go because since I’m teachi...

I’m writing this from beautiful Downtown Fountain Inn. Who knew Downtown Fountain Inn was beautiful? I didn’t until today.

And that, my friends, is the point of this blog. 

Yesterday I was supposed to have chemo. I got there, had my labs, and went up stairs to see my doc...

We reopen Stages this week. I always say We and that confuses people. “I thought you did one person shows.” They’re right. My shows are solo affairs, mainly because I like making sure I have the most lines in whatever play I’m doing. 

While I might be the only person on...

Sorry for the late blog. I had a bit of an adventure traveling yesterday. An hour delay in Missoula due to rain in Chicago made me twenty minutes late for my flight to Greenville. If someone doesn’t think everything on this earth is intrinsically connected, take a flig...

I’m wrapping up my time in Montana. 

Now I love to hike. I love to be out in nature. But since I can’t really walk up hills right now, that wasn’t really an option. So my buddy Dylan, trying to think of things that were A) Outside and B) Didn’t require much walking, cam...

How did I end up here? 

How did I end up on a massage table, in a trailer, in a valley of the Bitterroot Mountains named Coravallis, MT, thousands of miles from home. 

The simple answer is that I was brought here to do my show. How I ended up in this trailer might be a b...
