He has played in every major city in the United States and was a fixture for years at "The Ice House" in Pasadena, California. He has produced shows in New York City, most notably, The Lenny Bruce Revue and was the creator of the improvisational comedy troupe, "Noo Yawk Tawk", which became the proving ground for many up-and-coming young stars.
