After years of hosting a "Dumb, Dumber & Dumbest" radio show in Michigan, I am now a fill-in co-host for the "Greg and Dan" talk show in Peoria, Illinois. I used to write jokes for Jay Leno's monologue, and it was a ton of fun seeing him use them in front of a live audience on "The Tonight Show". You can't hear that kind of immediate response in radio. I, also, currently write and produce the video shorts on my website, www.thismightbefunny.com (some of which may actually be funny). The SpongeBush SquarePrez series is well over 6 million views.
And thanks to Amazon Studios, my Christmas comedy screenplay, LEON, was optioned and spent two years in development. I am currently working on a rewrite.
Growing up in a family of twelve (#7) with two bathrooms and one phone, I am constantly scratching my head as to how my parents pulled that off. My wife and I are the parents to one daughter, and at last count, we have three bathrooms and three phones.
Although my official MOS in the Army was 98Golf (a Russian linguist), I found some extra time and fell in love with writing as the editor of the battalion newspaper while stationed in Augsburg, Germany. It was one of the most important periods in my life. After getting out of the service, I lived in Germany as a civilian for seven months and travelled all over Europe by bicycle and train (not to mention knocking down a crap load of German beer). I also had the cool, historical experience of renting an apartment in The Fuggerei in Augsburg, which is the world's oldest social housing complex still in use.
