Like Big Billy?  Check out my buddy Joe Simko's work.  He's the illustrator of Big Billy with a series of his own called Sweet Rot.

Looking for something more adult?  Here's a novel for teens and adults called Sporks!  about life in an all boys Catholic School.  If you went there, you'll understand.

A Few of My Favorite Artists

Whenever I can't do a show, I offer the services of some of my friends.  Below is a list of some performers I recommend and a brief description of what they do.  The list is in alphabetical order because I don't want to play favorites.

John Cassidy--John is an extraordinary magician who likes to blow up stuff and jump around inside gigantic balloons.  What's not to love?

Jungle John--He's the crazy guy with alligators, hissing cockroaches, and snakes, and he's a lot of fun! I've seen his show many time, and it's always great.

Music Monkey Jungle--Lori was the host of a great program called the Milk and Cookies show.  She invited me to be a guest performer, and we became mutual fans.  She is excellent with the little guys.  She is an educator by background, so she really understands each age group and how to engage them.  Kids move from start to finish.  She also has a real knack for melody.

The Amazing Spaghetti--I met Dan Freed at an audition and loved the act.  He does magic, balloon twisting, face painting, and caricatures.  Fun guy!

The Great Holtzie--Holtzie is a stand up comic for kids.  That's right, a stand up comic for kids.  He's the only stand up comic for kids I know.  And he's a lot of fun. Check out the videos on his site to get a preview of the show.


Tom McDonnell's Magic Show--Tom is a lot of fun, and great with the little guys.  He really likes the kids and has a great sense of humor.  For Silly Joe wonks, Tom is "My friend Tom the magician" in the song "Getting Barbie Out of the Box" who offers to cut Barbie in half.  He can do that you know.  He's magic.  Just sayin'.


We Kids Rock--I've worked with Bill a number of times, and I've always had fun.  He's a great performer who gets kids involved.  He's a fine teacher and musician to boot. 


To all my friends I may have overlooked, if you would like to be included on this blog, drop me a line and I'll be glad to add a post!
