Two amazing women have helped shape me as a person. They are my mom Donna & my sister @_courtneycook_ . I don’t know where I would be without my moms confidence and belief in me throughout her living years (and even since her passing some of her “lessons” still linger and flourish).
Courtney will always be my little sister but her strength and character is something I will always look up to. I think we are both the best of our moms and dads (okayyy not all the best parts.. we could do without the anxiety and effects of it hehe). I have the drive my father had with the energy and positivity my mom had.
No matter what happens for the rest of my life I can say without pause my life up until now has been a great one with too many happy memories. Even some of the sad ones have ripened over the years and are quite delicious to look back on and laugh at.
No matter what your struggling with just find the silver lining and work your way inward. #forward#dreamon#mom#sister#grateful
Our film is almost locked! I’m so happy to have collaborated with my friend @mo_abhat and creating something timely & entertaining. Directing it was special.
Submitted to all major festivals. Can’t wait to watch it with a crowd. @rosskohn & @lanancy114 producing through Indy Entertainment.
Thx to all who came out to my @laughfactoryhw & @thecomedystore shows this weekend. But a very special thank you to the troops I got to meet and chat with. I admire these men and women who serve. What a sacrifice for all Americans. Glad I could make you all laugh.
The air quality from the fire is unbelievable. You can hardly take a breath without feeling like you are swallowing smoke.
I have a deep respect for all the firefighters who have been working over time to help families. This is not a random problem. This is a global problem. Climate change is real.
#tbt to #1994 when I was just a local comedian with a couple of my fellow “young comedy bucks” as the late great Kevin Knox used to call us.
John David gave me my first ever paid gig at the Billerica 99s restaurant & bar. 20 dollars. I stopped at the BK Lounge on the way home and bought 2 burgers!! I felt rich af!
Rick was later found to be the famed serial murderer that Dateline called “Killer Comedian” (totally bullshittin’ about that but it would have been a great ending to a simple post. Ahhhhh dreams.)
I started with some of the funniest guys still working today. Proud of my Boston roots. Still the greatest crowds I’ve ever played.
For Halloween I’m dressing as my 17 year old self. Thx to legendary @therickbaker for coming out of retirement to help me with this makeup and prosthetics process (only 72 hours in the chair). I’m grateful for your hard work and tirelessness. I really look like I’m a dork in high school.
I’ve had homes, for many years, in Dodger country & in Boston.. an Arlington kid at heart, especially when it comes to my “down time.” I grew up watching the #RedSox year after year. I hoped my dad would see them win it all and break the dreaded curse. They did. I was there and so was my pops.
I’ve never not attended a #WorldSeries winning game and here are 10 pictures to prove it.
Wonderful memories with truly excellent people.
Thank you to the #WorldSeries champs the Boston #RedSox on this historic accomplishment. Much deserved.
I have to thank @linda_pizzuti for welcoming us to join them usher this all in with Tom Warner & John Henry.
@itskelsitaylor got to see her 1st World Series game live! @paulhughescomic and I have been to many games but most importantly the most important ones!
Thx to all the former team mates that brought home the trophy but mostly thx to the 2018 Red Sox for making this one a historic endeavor that may not be done for another 100 years.
