Newsletter: “So What’s the Deal With Vegas?”

Friends!  This newsletter is heavy on the info, light on the pretty pictures.  I promise more pretty pictures next month..

As many of you know, several months back I moved home base out to Vegas predominantly to be a part of the show “Amazed” at Planet Hollywood. We enjoyed a wonderful run at “The V Theater” I will never forget, and I made lifelong friendships with performers Mike Rayburn, Tim Gabrielson, Ivan Pecel, Shimshi, Kier, and producer Josh Wainright. But to make a long story short, “Amazed” will not be continuing at a new venue as I originally indicated.

When I moved to Vegas, I did so knowing full-well that shows on The Strip come and go.  I felt that regardless of what happened with “Amazed,” it made sense as a variety entertainer to base myself in Vegas.  I stand by this decision now.  I am currently working a lot in FL this summer, but Vegas will remain my home base.  I look forward to the many other exciting opportunities out there for me, including:

1) National Speakers Association – I have recently been elected “Director of Marketing” for the Las Vegas chapter of the National Speakers Association.

2) Georgetown Club of Las Vegas – I have recently been elected President of the Georgetown Club of Las Vegas, of which I helped rejuvenate in the Spring.

3) Other shows – I will continue to jump in various shows when in town, including V: The Ultimate Variety Show (Planet Hollywood), Nathan Burton: Comedy Magic (Flamingo), and The Improv (Harrah’s).

Introducing… Michelle Massman!

My former manager Josh Wainright is taking his career in a different direction.  From Josh: “After 15 fantastic years in the business of booking agencies/management firms, I have decided to begin the process of closing Quantum Talent and starting a new chapter of my life. I am incredibly proud of what we have accomplished and more grateful than you will ever know.  QT will continue to maintain all holds and contracts currently in place until all decisions regarding those holds are final and all contracted dates are completed.”

I greatly enjoyed my run with Josh and Quantum, and I’m so thankful for all of the opportunities I was given – in Vegas and beyond. Michelle Massman (, 320.259.7108) is now the one to speak with regarding dates, pricing, logistics, etc.  You can read all about Michelle and her amazing array of accomplishments here: She is fantastic and I know you will love working with her!  Please note: Michelle is my “Calendar Liaison.”  She is not serving as an agent or a manager as Josh was previously.

I am very excited about the future, and look forward to all that’s coming in the Fall and beyond.  Until then, I’m enjoying a whirlwind summer of 144 shows in 3 months.

As always, I am tremendously grateful for your support.
