I'm retired New York City Detective, I love making people laugh.  I hit the New York City comedy club scene and quickly made a name for myself. I performed at all the major clubs in NYC as well as The Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ.  Not to mention many DIVE bars around the Lower East Side of New York City.   The Dive Bars Are the real deal...and my favorite audiences.  They don't care about jokes...I'm interrupting their drinking.  But rest assured when I get offstage, I'm always greeted with a "You're funny for a Lesbian.."  

I've been lucky enough to travele along the East Coast entertaining audiences in Provincetown, Boston, Rhode Island, North Carolina & Florida, telling jokes, meeting great comics and audiences. 

I did the Comedy Festival Gigs too.. the Boston Comedy Festival, Women In Comedy Festival, Boston, MA,  "Out of Bounds" Comedy Festival, Austin, TX,  The Chicago Womens' Funny Festival, Cape Fear Comedy Festival, NC; "The World Series of Comedy" in Charlotte, North Carolina and Las Vegas, and the San Diego Comedy Festival, San Diego, CA.

I even got to tell jokes at "The Castle" in Manchester, England as part of the "Women In Comedy-UK" festival as well as the "Edinburgh Fringe Festival" to sold out crowds.

My credits...who cares...ok..if you REALLY must know..Ive been an extra on a bunch of stuff on MTV, PBS and KTU Radio in NYC
