His calendar is full, but there are
drawbacks. “I’m on the road 48 weeks a year, so I’m sure my wife has a
boyfriend by now,” he says from Denver where he’s performing before coming to
Cincinnati. “I’m literally going non-stop.” The Michigan native is sort of a
Midwestern everyman, and folks easily relate to his jokes. “People know me and
like my act because I’m clean,” he explains. “I don’t get too political. I
don’t think people want to pay money to see me fake madness at the political
system.” Instead he concentrates on the domestic side of life. “I’m at that age
where I don’t have kids yet, but I’ve mathematically figured it out. I’m in my
early forties, so even if I had a kid yesterday, when that kid moves out of my
house I’m going to be 66, and two weeks later I’ll have to move back in with
him. I might have mistimed a few things.” Funny Bone on the Levee, Newport.
