Happy Holidays! All of them.

Merry Christmas! Seasons Greetings! Happy Hanukah! Joyous Kwanzaa! A Festivus for the rest of us! Hi!

If you are struggling with what to get me this year. I’d like Peace on Earth and a Red Ryder BB Gun.


Spectacular On Hold…

This month I was supposed to return with Mark Hayward to New York City for the "Stunt Lab, Holiday Spectacular!", but unfortunately the Canal Park Playhouse suffered extensive damage during Hurricane Sandy. They are currently working on restoring the theater and will reopen in January. We hope to return in 2013 as well (I’ll keep you posted)!

Luckily, we didn’t lose our deposit on the Dancing Reindeer and we were able to return "The World’s Largest Fruit Cake".


The Facts According to Jonathan:


"Mr Miyagi trims the tree all year long."

After spending July in Europe my wife and I made it back to “The States.” We saw some sites (The Eiffel Tower, The Crown Jewels, and Bono’s House), picked up a little French (“Je ne parle pas Français”), and I performed for the lovely people in Ireland (check out the videos below).

I have some pretty exciting gigs coming up this month (The Kennedy Center, Riot Act Comedy Theater, the NACA National Conference Showcase, & MORE), and a bunch of the shows are open to the public. Be sure to check out the Public Shows Section below and find out where I’ll be doing my thing this month.

But Jonathan I can’t get out to see you this month because [Insert Excuse Here]… No worries! “Like” Me and/or “Follow” Me, and I’ll keep you posted where I’ll be, and hopefully we can get together soon.

PS: I just got word that I’ll be performing in New York City throughout March. Details are still coming together, so sit by your e-mail machine and I’ll get you the scoop.
