I forgot about this. Satan’s first video blog of 2011 still relevant with reference to that dumpster fire, Carl Paladino. If you clap real hard, maybe Satan will make more in 2017?
The rabbits and I are still alive! Come see me at the following shows in January & February:

Uh, that was a trip. After getting through the preliminary round with a third place finish, we started out the semis with a show in Escondido, CA. It’s all palm trees down there! Then we had a show in Sacramento the next day. Not my best stuff but I pushed through the anxiety and had stronger shows in Livermore and Santa Rosa.
It was an amazing experience and would do it again. Well, I guess it’s back to reality and begging for 2.5 minutes of stage time at open mics.
Special thanks to Peter Greyy (Get well soon!), Pat Burtscher, John Fox, Roger Lizoala, for making it a great event! Also, Santa Rosa has the smartest and best looking people in the world.
I’m packing up the rabbits and driving down the coast to the San Francisco Comedy Competition in a couple of weeks. First week of shows starts on September 10th.
