It Has Been A While!

Broken arm has sidelined me!

Sunday March 14, 2021 at 8:45am. I badly broke the humerus bone on my right arm. [go figure] I slipped in the shower and fell out over the tub and onto the floor landing all my weight on my right arm.

EMS took me to Sunnybrook in Toronto, and it took 3 tries to straighten the arm. The EMS and hospital staff at Sunnybrook treat me amazing.

Life changed in a blink of an eye.

The doctors tried to avoid surgery but due to the severity of the injury I had surgery on Thursday April 8, 2021. Plates and screws were used to hold the bones in place. & strengthen the injured area. On April 19, 2021, the doctors told me I could start light physio. Been doing physio 3 times a week since April 19, 2021.

Since the injury it has been a real hard grind setting up PSW’s to help me and asking close friends to help me get groceries. Everyone has been kind and helpful during this really tough period.

It is going to take time and patience to get back up to speed physically and mentally. Physio is going great and I am a head of schedule. But cannot do any weight bearing exercises or lift a mica with my right arm.

I cannot wait to get to performing and writing "Comic Of The Week", "Comedy Spotlights", and "Comedy Tips".

A New Version Of The Comedy Green Room!

Laughter Is The Best Medicine

More important than anything else is the health and safety of every single person on the planet. And a big thank you to the frontline workers in this fight against Covid-19

The Comedy Green Room was launched on December 31, 2000, I cannot believe that 20 years have passed in a blink of an eye. We have had three designs in of the website throughout the years.

Thank you to Irish Comedian Donal Norton for designing our first logo.

I must thank Ms. Trish Keenan for taking my initial idea, a barebones website, and designing the second version. And our second logo.

Next Ms. Skylar Hart, a talented multimedia expert, redesigned The Comedy Green Room to reflect the importance of Social Media marketing and blog writing. Thank you, Skylar, for continues support and valuable advice.

Ms. Jordyn Leigh, a talented graphic designer and artist, came up with the latest logos. Thank you, Jordyn, for the logos and I cannot wait to see what you come up with next.


To celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Comedy Green Room, I took on the task of redesigning the site. With Ms. Skylar Hart’s guidance, I started from scratch to make the site more user friendly. The goal was to increase the blog visibility. Have more followers submit articles and add “Comedy Tips” to our resources.

The New Comedy Green Room Site is live. Check it out by visiting

I never imagined the impact my little website would have on the international comedy community. I have stood by the philosophy of promoting stand-up comedy for the love of stand-up comedy. The website has proven stars on the site as well as unknown comics. And some of the known comics ten years ago are now household names.

Thank you to everyone who visits, supports, and contributes to keeping The Comedy Green Room an International Comedy Resource.
