Three English professors walk into a bar…
I am a professor of creative writing and American literature at New Mexico Highlands University in Las Vegas, New Mexico. Over the last six years, I have devoted much of my academic life to (actually, I have become obsessed with) studying the history, aesthetics, social implications, evolution and performance associated with stand-up comedy, the only literary form that grows directly out of American soil.
If you are interested in my work as a scholar or performer, or you can add any insight to what I am doing, I would love to talk to you.
