But amidst his years of toil in graduate school, he has rediscovered comedy, and has been told by a couple of non-descript lay-abouts that he actually has kind of a knack for it! He sees the stage as a place to unleash his erudite insanity, and if a small contingent of the crowd turns out to be into it, that's cool. BOOK

I am from La Verne CA and I was born and raised in America but I am 100% Jordanian that means middles east or "terrorist" to the TSA. Even though I look like a fat really white, white guy. I love making funny YouTube videos with friends and making people laugh. And I have a huge heart mostly for animals and especially dogs. And I'm a little stereo typical. By that I mean I sometimes build my own bombs, but for paintball and airsoft not to blow people up. And I love cooking but mostly for the end result of cooking, eating! I have always loved making people laugh and acting a fool at myself like poking fun at my weight and my way with the ladies but I never try to take things too seriously because where´s the fun in that?
