“It’s always funny until someone gets hurt. Then it’s hilarious.” Bill Hicks

At a corporate event a few years back, I witnessed a bad speech. The speaker was a ham. Here’s the difference between a ham and a funny person. The ham thinks he’s funny, a funny person doesn’t. You’re really only funny when you doubt you’re funny. Doubt is the true road to funniness.




In the wake of fake news, Trumpism, double standards and hypocrisy a good ol' rant has never been easier. Call out BS where BS is due. Let the world know what's wrong with it - but do it in style!

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
