Grinderz


In 1998 I wrote this movie about punk Bladers (roller bladers) Vs. square Boarders (skate boarders). The result was a great bundle of footage that kept getting filmed while I completed other projects for Nike, Gladys Night, Shaqille O'Neil, Master P/No Limit Records, Hallmark Greeting Cards and the list goes on and on and I just let my movie go unedited until I saw a TV ad for a movie called Grind.

Grind had my character's names, my opening sequence and my first act, all with a bigger budget and a wide theatrical release. Damn! I set out to sue the makers of the film, but got side-tracked with other projects for a bunch of other celebrities (too many to mention).

I decided that I'd just finish my movie with my vision and release it to festivals and pick up a cult following, which I wanted in the first place. I'd rather have a movie that has a cult following and is talked about for centuries than an over nigh commercial success flash in the pan crap shoot, which Grind was.

It is now 2008, 10 years since I started on the movie, all the actors are old and obscure, as far as acting goes. They will surface once the movie released, because they will become stars with a cult following, people will quote their lines like Repo Man, and they will go on to live in infamy, or at least their characters will. I will see to that this comes to pass. I will log and blog all the action from last cut to first screening. We will begin to spread the word like a wild fire over the Internet, in chat rooms, through email campaigns, at skate parks and skate stores. School campuses will be a-buzz with the words of Grinderz on the lips of all who feels it speaks for them...the bully and the bullied alike.

Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno



I'm preparing my material for the Tonight Show w/Jay Leno. I'm 3/4 through reading his book, "Leading with my chin" gave me a wealth of insight as to what they expect a comedian to do on the show. I will only get four minutes to perform, so in preparation for the show I'll be performing 2 different four minute sets back to back on Thursday 6/26/08 7pm at Cafe' Audrey 6701-B Hollywood Blvd at Las Palmas, Hollywood, CA 90028. Come out and get your laugh on with a quality comedian...me. You,will help decide which set I do on the Tonight Show w/Jay Leno!

Little Britain

Little Britain USA was a very fun show to work on. I'm in five episodes of "Fat Fighters"! I look forward to taping more episodes. Be sure to watch the show this fall (September 2008) so we can get more episodes ordered by HBO.
Rosie O'Donnel is in one of our episodes, she was a great person to work with, she even used a punchline I gave her and the skit came off hilarious. Stars Matt Lukas and David Walliams are super talented and masters of subtle humor. They taught me a lot about the art of playing it down for TV.
Vivica Fox and Harry Lennix play the U.S. President and the First Lady. Sting and Katherine Heigl are in separate episodes and David Schwimmer was fun to have as a Director, he really knows his craft and it shows.
