The Tiki Hour

Tomorrow I will return to my college radio roots as a special guest on The Tiki Hour show on KTXT FM at 5pm.  It’s been over 10 years since I was slinging the “The Knife’s” Silent Shout as a DJ.  Tune in online at KTXT 71696580_1369280936546318_2621970641061937152_n

Hot Yoga Champ!

October has ended and you are looking at the champ! 10 Hot Yogas, 1 5k, and max bench of 160lbs (I know weak). It was a fun challenge doing standup during the month of October under these conditions. Kings of Laugh Off was a solid show and continue to look for great things from the champ! DKC00174 – Photo Credit Daniel Clayton

My Family the Hero

The last post was a fun competition that we are doing this month that has to do with fitness and comedy. I think my family are one of the 5 people that visit this site and like typical family overact. This post is for you cause think you know all about me.

Sober October

So in lieu of some of the most well respected comedians of our time some of us local boys have joined in the #SoberOctober contest this month.  SOBEROCTOBER 

I have a feeling my sets will be a bit more irritable this month but get ready for some sexy hot yoga photos.

As my country becomes more and more hostile to the outside world I seek refuge in other countries.  Two weeks ago, I went with a group of friends to Iceland. So why Iceland?   Why not?  I ended up getting a cheap round trip from DFW to KEF through American Airlines.  American Airlines did the most AA thing and canceled my first flight so 18 hours later I was finally in Reykjavik.

We rocked the Golden Circle and then Blue Lagoon as these are the things you do in Iceland when you only have a couple of days.  All this time I am communicating back and forth with Golden Gang aka the Icelandic Comedy group.

“Can you send us a tape?” Aw yes, the tape my arch nemesis!  Getting a good tape where the video and audio is solid can be a real struggle.  Not to mention that you have to be on fire with your jokes which the awareness of the taping usually makes that part pure death.  “I have plenty of audio sets can I send you one from Wednesday?”  “Sure.”  After the constant back and forth I got on the showcase with the strength of my audio set.

The Scene

The Icelandic comedy scene is a small group of locals, ex-pats, and travelers that remind me of the scene in Lubbock minus the ex-pats and travelers of course.  I asked them how the shows in Icelandic did and they said they had cancelled most of them as the shows in English were more popular.  I watched the first block of comics go up with two ex-pats and two locals who were all on fire.  I was in the 2nd block with my very American Cultural references that for the most part landed.  Then I got dark and that’s when stuff usually goes off the rails.  But all in all, a great show and a great scene with a group of people who appreciate stand up.  Big thanks to the following:
