Mourning Coffee 

Mourning Coffee is my podcast where I talk to comedians and creative types about how they deal with mourning, grief, loss, and death in their everyday lives.  I began the podcast in the aftermath of losing my best friend and roommate, Amy Daulton, to suicide.  I have recorded over 100 episodes of the show and the entire archive can be found on the Mourning Coffee website here.

You can subscribe to the podcast as well as leave us a rating and review on Apple Podcasts here.


Not Quite Midnight


With comedian Courtney Maginnis, I coproduce and cohost a kitschy, self-aware version of traditional late night talk show. At Not Quite Midnight, we introduce our favorite comedians for short performances, then take them to the couch to get to the bottom of their jokes. Like and Follow us on Facebook

Here's the opening sketch for our one year anniversary show.
