WELL, HERE'S WHERE I TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF. AT LEAST THE THINGS I'M NOT TOO EMBARRASSED TO ADMIT. I
WILL DO MY BEST TO BE TRUTHFUL. YOU WON'T FIND ANY "BEEFED UP" RESUMES HERE. SO, YOU WON'T HEAR ME SAY I DID THE
SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW OR HAD AN AUDIENCE WITH THE POPE. UNLESS, OF COURSE, THOSE EVENTS TAKE PLACE. SO,
HERE IT GOES. I BEGAN AS A QUASI-COMEDIAN. WHEN I WAS 15 YEARS OLD I STARTED THE SKETCH COMEDY GROUP "JIM'S
PROM PICTURE INC." IT WAS LIKE SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE BUT, FUNNY!!! DURING THE NEXT 8 YEARS THE GROUP PLAYED ALL
OVER THE PHILADELPHIA AREA. WE PLAYED THE WALNUT ST. THEATER, SHUBIN THEATER, BRICK PLAYHOUSE, CHEZ LABELLE,
CLUB HP, ACTORS PLAYHOUSE AT THE BOURSE, ETC. THE ETC. INCLUDES ALL THE OLD AGE HOME AND RECORD STORES WE
PLAYED. OVER THE 8 YEARS I WROTE AND DIRECTED OVER 200 SKETCHES. I ACTED, IN THE SKETCHES, WITH AN ARRAY OF
TALENTED TO SEMI-TALENTED PERFORMERS. DURING THIS TIME I BEGAN WRITING COMEDY SONGS TO PERFORM, ALONG WITH
THE SKETCHES. I FORMED THE GROUP "FESTER HITCHCOCK AND THE MONKEY MAN" THE GROUP WAS BASICALLY ME AND MIKE
TAIT, WHO WAS ALSO A MEMBER OF THE SKETCH GROUP. AFTER THE SKETCH GROUP ENDED IN 1997, I STARTED TO
CONCENTRATE ON WRITING MUSIC. I HAD OVER 100 COMEDY SONGS. BUT, I NEEDED TO ADD MORE "REAL SONGS" I BEGAN
WRITING AND PERFORMING MY ORIGINAL SONGS AT LOCAL COFFEE HOUSES AND OPEN MIC NIGHTS I KEPT WRITING AND, NOW, I
HAVE OVER 400 SONGS. SOME FUNNY, SOME SAD, SOME FAST, SOME SLOW. BUT, EACH IS DEFINITELY ORIGINAL. I WON'T PLAY
ANY COVER SONGS. I NEVER TAUGHT MYSELF ANY BECAUSE THE ORIGINAL ARTIST WOULD PERFORM THE SONG MUCH BETTER
THEN I EVER COULD. I HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO PERFORM ON A REGULAR BASIS. I’VE PLAYED THROUGHOUT THE
EAST COAST. INCLUDING WORLD CAFÉ LIVE AND THE TIN ANGEL IN MY HOMETOWN OF PHILADELPHIA. PLUS, MANY OTHER
STOPS ALONG THE EAST COAST. I HAVE RECEIVED RADIO PLAY IN THE U.S. AND EUROPE AND SEVERAL “TRACK OF THE DAY”
AWARDS ON GARAGEBAND.COM. I HAVE OPENED FOR HAMELL ON TRIAL, STEVE POLTZ (TWICE), STEVE FORBERT (TWICE),
ASYLUM STREET SPANKERS AND OPENED THREE TIMES FOR MARSHALL CRENSHAW. MY LIVE SHOWS ARE ALWAYS FUN
EXPERIENCES. I LOVE INTERACTING WITH THE AUDIENCE. I LIKE KEEPING THEM GUESSING BY SWITCHING MY SONGS FROM
HAPPY TO SAD AND, THEN, BACK AGAIN
