ImprovBoston Mainstage

Come watch some of Boston's best comedians have the time of their lives up on stage. I'm on the keys providing dramatic underscoring... and making them sing silly songs whenever the moment feels right. 

These shows are consistently home runs. I'm lucky to work with such funny talented people! I still pinch myself on occasion. 

Tickets available here! 

This show is PG-13 (and sometimes a little bluer than that). Family Show and All Access [4pm & 6pm respectively on Saturdays] are great for kids!

Tory Silver Album Release Show @ Lizard Lounge

Tory Silver and I have been playing together since fall of 2017. She asked me to play keys on her most recent EP, and now I'm performing with her.

She's got a wonderful voice and write some beautiful songs. Her EP will be out soon! I had a blast working on it, playing rhodes, piano, synthesizer, and singing vocal harmonies.  

Drunk Monkeys and Toledo are opening for us! Going to be a fun and funky night at one of my favorite venues in Boston!

Tory on FB. She's on Spotify too!

MD GO ROUND @ Green Room

Alongside Jess Pfohl and Scott Istvan, I will perform dumb musical improv comedy. All three of us will play piano and act and sing and mess with each other. 

OnPoint Improv is an amazing independently produced comedy show that raises money for charities every month. Noah Pestana runs it and it is an *amazing* time.

MURDER NIGHT: don't fear the re-purge

Come watch me perform as "Marty" in this original comedy musical, based on the world of a movie I haven't seen: 'The Purge'.  I'm the central character in this salacious, violent, and clever-as-hell musical. Its got some sincere, heart warming moments, and you get to watch people. [No fake blood, just fake orgasmic death screams]

Its a really, really good show, and its been a wonderful return to acting in scripted theatre, after many years of hiatus! 

This show has been performed at the Rochester Fringe festival, the PIT (in NYC), ImprovBoston, and this is the second (and final) run at the Rockwell, in Davis Sq. 

Shows are Thursday the 19th at 7:30pm and Friday the 20th at *9:30pm*

Tickets here!
