Inspired by years playing in nightclubs and my training with the cabarets of The Committee and The Second City, I created, in 1980, The Hollywood Primary, a midnight cabaret specializing in vicious nasty political and social humor.

Alumni from both of the above, along with several other comic actors and writers, wrote sketches, blackouts, and musical numbers, which we put on at midnight in the Blossom Room of the Hollywood Hotel.

The actors also made up most of the ten-piece band. Wives, lovers, girlfriends, friends, and kids helped out -- especially Keji, my wife at the time. It was everything I wanted it to be. Vicious, nasty, and very funny.

I later directed numerous shorts (see for children) and a series about the curmudgeon, Mr. Vinégar (see tab.)


Most recently I dived into social media with a series called, Have You Lost Your Fucking Mind? which you can see here.
