I'm a Chicago comedian who performs with Improvised Shakespeare, Baby Wants Candy, and my independent team The Blue Angels. I am also part of the sketch group Rich Parents.My comedy's been featured on Adult Swim, Buzzfeed, the American Bystander, and McSweeneys.I moved to the big city with nothing but a suitcase and a dream. Now I have a suitcase.
Here's a calendar of my upcoming shows. I also included dental appointments, since my mom will be the only person to care about this.

I am currently creating sketch videos with my friend Andrew Melzer. We go by the name Rich Parents.Past efforts found below.
Immersive theater, sketch comedy, and live streams, all while posing as an events company.
We were described as "fearless," "inspired, and absurd" by TimeOut Chicago and "all brains," by the Chicago Reader which is probably why the group desolved so it's members could apply to graduate school.
