I was born in L.A. to an Arab father and Brazilian mother. This figures prominently into my act. I grew up in South L.A. (a different part of L.A.) and I worked in and around the entrainment business since the 80s. I worked in the record business, played in several bands, licensed music to TV, had some short stories published and just finished a novel and a book of essays that I´m currently shopping. Did some commentary for Drew on Call on HLN. After some time away, I started performing again in December of 2013 and look forward to more shows and having a real good time.
