A while back we did a live remote for ABC’s Windy City LIVE #wcl with legendary blues harmonica player (and Chicago icon) Corky Siegel. We met at Chicago Bagel Authority on Armitage and found some very talented local singers – who didn’t even know they were singers before we forced them.

I worked my way through college, playing music and telling jokes in small clubs around the midwest. My very first “Big” show was opening for Corky at Drake University in Des Moines.

Corky was great that night, and on this cold Chicago morning. That same impish smile and killer harp tone filled up CBA with blues and mojo enough to share.  This is an un-aired outtake from the live shoot. After we switched off the live camera, we just felt like playing a little more. Keep up with Corky’s travels at

Awwwwwwww ya!

Jammin’ with a schmear!


Mano a Mano

My fiance Yeni and I are the special guests on the Season Finale of Bravo’s new hit reality series,

INTERIOR THERAPY with Jeff Lewis (May 16, 9pm )

Typically, Jeff and his delightfully hilarious – just friends – better half Jenny Pulos,  storm-troop through couples homes, forcing them to

face the crippling relationship issues that simmer just beneath the surface of their seemingly tolerable lives. Jeff picks and pokes the couples about their differing opinions and tastes in home decor, only to release a  tsunami of tears and tendencies that miraculously always resolve themselves in the final moments of the show.

However, in our episode, we skirt the uber-drama and rely on go-to crowd pleasers: slapstick humor and scandalous innuendo. Jenny, a gifted improvisor from Chicago is hilarious, but Jeff does his best to provoke an apocalyptic meltdown.

Our non-disclosure agreements prevent the inclusion of any more information. Lets just say there’s a reason its the last show of the season.

Set your DVR’s and watch it twice! BRAVO!

Watch a clip from the show

Make sure to stay tuned until the final segment, when Jeff and I saddle up in authentic jousting armor and settle our issues like men.
