Joyeux NOEL! This is my 2018 video Christmas card. Peace to you, regardless of whatever you do (or don’t celebrate). P.S. If you’re wondering about the thought process behind the bug eyed panic: I had “Noel” in my head before Alex stopped talking, but in a Christmas context I pronounce it “KNOW-EL”. As I was preparing to speak I suddenly thought “There ain’t no dudes named KNOW-EL!!!” because I pronounce the boy’s name as “Knowl” and in the moment those 2 things just wouldn’t reconcile, so at the time limit I blurted out what I was originally going to say since it was all I had and it ended up making me $2k. An early Christmas Miracle. Love you all.

Hey everyone, wild few days there last month huh? A few weeks ago I got to achieve a 20 year dream and see myself on Jeopardy! I cannot even tell you how unreal that feels. And while I wish I could have given everybody a few more nights in the run (and made it to that sweet sweet Tournament of Champions) I’m *beyond* happy & grateful for how things played out. I’m a 3x Jeopardy! champion with an incredible experience that I’ll have for the rest of my life and which I’m extremely eager to start talking about onstage. (…and yeah $53K is pretty dope too).
More than anything I need to send out a MASSIVE THANKS to *everyone* who wished me luck, shared my story, organized a watch party, reached out to me with kind words, and offered their support and encouragement. I can’t even process the degree to which folks were out there for me night after night. People have told me how cool & collected I seemed on the show but they should see me reading all of the positive shoutouts and messages I’ve received, I haven’t been cool & collected then, I’ve been absolutely floored and overwhelmed. I’m still working on acknowledging & responding to everyone who’s gotten in touch but I just want to say that it’s meant more than you can ever know.
And lastly, while I may not be a 5-day “Super Champion” I do feel confident in my early bid for taking the crown in the Jeopardy! 2018 Jacket Game. #Fresh2Death

OK, here it is….
Watch me fulfill a 20 year dream and appear on Jeopardy! this evening. I’ve barely slept in 2 nights with anticipation, and to celebrate I’m dropping the latest edition of my regular newsletter HERE (the best one yet if I do say so myself). Absolutely tune in if you can!
In order to make thing easy for anyone who sees the show and wants to know what I’m all about as a comic and storyteller I’ve created this nifty one-pager. It’s sort of a digest about me and what I do with a bio, notes on my current projects, some performance clips, info about my humor book, etc. Check it out!: https://bit.ly/
And here’s a great tool to help you find out when Jeopardy! is on in your area and on which channel: https://www.jeopardy.
Lastly: From the words of encouragement, to people organizing viewing parties and telling friends about me being on the show I just want to say that I truly appreciate everyone’s support! It means the world.

So I’ve been working with The Big Quiz Thing for a few years now as a quizmaster & host for public and private events all over New England. If you love outstanding live trivia but haven’t heard of us well, GET READY because we’re coming to one of the most iconic venues in Boston: The Hayden Planetarium at the Museum Of Science!
Our first show there this June was a huge success and I’ll be returning for 2 more dates as part of the Museum’s Summer Thursdays programming block. We’re rocking trivia under the stars (…kind of) on the second Thursdays of July & August ( 7/13 + 8/10).
Like every other school kid who grew up in the area I took a field trip or two to the planetarium back in the day so it’s pretty awesome to be back on behalf of the show I’ve loved working with for so long. Be sure to check us out!
