I have worked
for over 30 years with stand-up comics, business keynote speakers,
politicians, ministers--all solo performers.
The Redwood Empire Players
I have been working professionally in the theater since 1967, more than 40 years. I directed West Coast Premieres of off-Broadway plays for 5 years through my own theater company, The Redwood Empire Players.
Next, I began producing stand-up comedy shows through my own business, Organized Comedy. By now, I have an over 30-year national reputation for coaching successful: stand-up comics, business keynote speakers, politicians, etc. I began working with stand-up comics on their writing and performing in 1977 and 1980-1983, taught the first Stand-Up Comedy course for credit at a university in the USA at Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, California, one hour north of San Francisco.
Business Keynote Speakers
In 1988, I began working with professional speakers who were already good and, as one put it, "made us great!" By 1996, even politicians began contacting me (totally unsolicited!) to help out with their presentation and interview skills during that year's election.
students and clients have won most major Stand-Up Comedy Competitions
in the country, including the grand prize on Ed McMahon's 1991 "Star
Search" TV show: $100,000!
Oracle's "Virtual Man"
background really helped in November 1999 when Oracle asked me to be their
on camera talent "Virtual Man" to tape 21 video commercials
which I had to re-write on-the-fly.
You got it,
I can re-write it:
