Almost every article on stand-up comedy has the same title: “Stand-Up Guy.”  It’s hilarious, catchy and overused!  Either comedians really are upstanding citizens or journalists are stopping at the first headline they think of.

So, if any reporters are writing articles about me performing at the Laugh Factory in Las Vegas Apr. 27-May 3, allow me to ingratiate  you some headlines you can use (because I’m a stand-up guy).

“Vegas’ Only Sure Fire Bet.”
“Ha Rollers”
“Non-Stop Ha Ha Hip Hop at the Trop”
“So Funny You’ll Think It’s a Laugh Mirage”
“Comedy That Will Make You Go Bellagio in Your Pants”

Email me if you can think of more.

I’m fresh off the plane from sunny Mumbai, India.  It was a quick visit, but enough to change my perspective on a city most Americans have only experienced from the movie “Slumdog Millionaire.”

So, to give you another perspective, here are the answers to the most common questions I’ve gotten about my trip:

1.  Why did you go to INDIA?!

Me, Raj Sharma, Vir Das, Tehran Von Ghasri and Jeremy Craven at the Ishanya Amphitheatre in Pune, India, Jan. 23, 2015.

I visited for the Weirdass Pajama Comedy Festival, presented by popular Bollywood actor and comedian, Vir Das. My friend, American comedian Raj Sharma, referred me to the festival.  Raj, myself and fellow Americans Jeremy Crave, Tehran Von Ghasri went from Hollywood to Bollywood, to perform on the the “American Invasion” show.

2.  Do they speak English?

Yes!  Last time I checked, India used to be owned by the British, who totally speak American.  It’s also one of the most tech-savvy nations in the world, so they have mad wifi reception, which imports most references on American pop culture.
