A few words of thanks. A lot of people have helped me get gigs or have offered funny suggestions to bits that I have used. Barry Crimmins and Mike McDonald have helped me get published in a newspaper and a book, repsectively. Joey Santegate from the Comedy Connection helped hook me up with Bob Kephart in Atlantic City where I've played now regularly for ten years. A couple of audience people gave me non-hack jokes that I actually used and I never knew who they were, so I never had a chance to thank them. Each of my three brothers has made at least one joke to me that I have used on stage to good effect. Much of my humor is derived from my relationship with them, growing up and laughing. "Bob the Roofer" helped get me started in comedy at fundraisers when I was only 15. He was a talented man who was willing to share the stage with a boy even though he didn't have to. An experienced pro, Bob was the MC and he graciously let me MC half the show when he didn't have to. That good beginning on page one has helped me write a positive story. Mostly I want to thank my wife Hilarie for all her support and help over these last 20 years.
