Who are you and why?

I'm a standup comic who does a one-man sketch podcast called Ham Radio with Brett Hamil. I live at the top of Capitol Hill with a wife and a dog, both of whom I found on the internet. And why? My best guess is infant jaundice.

What's Meat and Potatoes?

Meat and Potatoes is a monthly showcase that brings innovative comedy to a friendly bar at the intersection of Bellevue, Bellevue, and Bellevue. If you don't believe me, you can MapQuest that shit.

What's better—meat or potatoes?

Meat (on account of the jaundice).

Describe your comedy in seven words or less.

A triumph of the human spirit, ostensibly.

Tell me a story.
