“I love Chicago! It’s always been like a second home to me, so it will be great to get back! I’m looking forward to seeing some friends, doing some Chicago podcasts and radio shows, but I’m really excited to be doing some comedy there. Kick Punch Stand Up is one Chicago’s best independent shows, and The Nasty Show is one of the Chicago Laugh Factory’s most popular shows. I’m very grateful for all the wonderful people that have helped me, and for the opportunities to further expand my comedy.”
