I've been performing stand up comedy in the District and at festivals around the country since 2012! My stand up is sarcastic, witty and often includes imaginative over-analysis of everyday life. I frequently explore super original and edgy topics like my cats, dating and eating.

I have performed at the Howard Theatre and the Contemporary Jewish Museum and am proud to be the regular host of PUN DMV at the DC Improv and the Well, Well, Well Comedy Live Stream at Your Computer! I also produce and host highly elaborate theme shows for holidays. 

Please contact me for booking! I can easily do a clean set to meet the needs of your audience.

Comedians share deep insights for your wellness PLUS raise funds for worthy causes! HEALarity ensues

It's episode 007, and we're (emotionally) shaken AND stirred AND ready! Stop on by our virtual yurt for Grassroots Comedy DC's next episode of "Well, Well, Well" -- a very meaningful show where comedians share deep insights for your wellness. From work from home hacks to stress reduction techniques to plain ol' silliness, this show will guide and soothe your troubled soul.

Be ZENtertained by talented folks including Kasha Patel, Matty Litwack, Robert Mac, Joseph Leland Malinski, Alyssa Briddes, Mikael Johnson, and even more special guests. Hosted by the chillest and most calming presences you've ever encountered on this plane, Dana Fleitman and Chris Blackwood.

And, in case you haven't heard, there's this like...pandemic going on? Yeah. Dude. Google it. One of the many terrible impacts of Covid-19 is an increase in domestic violence and a decrease in available services/options for victims and survivors. So we're proud to be raising funds for House of Ruth - since 1976, they've been empowering District women, children and families to rebuild their lives and heal from trauma, abuse and homelessness. House of Ruth offers comprehensive support for women, children and families, with a continuum of services encompassing enriched housing for families and single women, trauma-informed daycare for children, and free counseling. Heck yeah!

So brew that kombucha, don your stretchiest yoga pants, and get ready to be centered and calm AF!

Requested donations of $5 minimum - $5,000 maximum: please donate what you can!
