New comedy with Anne Heche! Premieres Thursday 8/7c. Preview now.
Fill us in on what you've been up to since your season of LCS ended?
Well, for the most part, I have been touring and hanging out with my wife and daughter who I didn't get to see very much because of the show. I have also been doing some things that I never imagined. I am getting gigs all over the world because of LCS. So my wife, daughter and I have been to some cool places!
How did LCS change your life?
It changed my life in so many ways. I went from a somewhat known comic in Canada to a recognizable face all over the world. There are clubs in the U.S. that I could not get a guest spot at before LCS and now I am headlining there! People now stop me for pictures and autographs. I am so thankful for what the show did for me.
What's it like being on the road? Is being a professional comic all it's cracked up to be? No pun intended.
That is the one part of the job I do not like. I hate being away from my wife and daughter so I try to keep my travel to a minimum or bring them with me. Perhaps if I was younger, the road would be more fun but for me it is the rough part of the job.
Tell us a funny LCS story that fans never got to see happen on air?
When we were down to the final ten, we had our voting booth on the field where the USC Trojans play football. We were hanging around waiting and Ralph Harris challenged me to a race because I had jokingly said earlier that I could beat him. Well, everyone watched and I won easily. Lavell gave Ralph a hard time and we all had quite a good laugh at it. We also used to dance around in-between takes and they used to laugh at me because I can't do moves to the left as well as to the right.
Any parting words of advice to would-be comedians?
I tell everyone, do what you can to get on LCS. It is life changing. I can't wait to watch this season because I know how exciting, nerve racking and fun the whole experience is!
