Don was doing his laundry one beautiful evening in 2003 and as he loaded his wet clothes into a dryer he noticed a newspaper on the ground with the headline “So you think you are funny?”  He grabbed the paper and it listed the open mics around town.  Quickly he looked for the show that was going on that evening, he grabbed his wet clothes, drove down to the show, grabbed the microphone and has not put it down since. Within 3 months of starting standup comedy he won an amateur comedy contest, placed top 5 in the Portland Comedy Competition and took first place in it in 2011.
Since then Don has travelled around the country to perform in comedy clubs, casinos, theaters, universities, private parties, state prisons and even alpaca farms.  Don never shies away from helping charities with his comedy; he has helped raise over $35,000 at various benefit events.
He was raised in a small town in the middle of Nevada, surrounded by nothing but desert and humor.  His dad taught him to be a hard worker and pay attention to detail, while his mother told him that life is hard and you better learn to laugh!  He combined what his parents taught him and began his comedy journey.  Don brings his wild sense of life and love for fun to the stage and is ready to point out the funny things around us and it’s hysterically funny every time!
Don’s comedy takes on a sarcastic, loud flavor-full of insight about his rural upbringing, daily observations of the people and places he encounters, and his genuine and unique take on the human experience through his strange, frantic point of view.  Don’s energetic stage presence is loud and original.  You definitely don’t want to miss his show!
