Among the national headliners he’s performed with are Pat Cooper, the Amazing Johnathan, Dom Irrera, Dave Chappelle, Brian Regan, Gilbert Godfried and David Alan Grier, as well as Boston-boys-gone-national Dane Cook, Lenny Clarke, Nick DiPaolo, Joe Rogan, John Pinette, and Maine’s Bob Marley. At one point, he hosted his own weekly shows at two Nick’s  Comedy Stop locations, in Framingham and Saugus.
