Since, he has worked with Jay Leno, Louie Anderson, Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Barry Manilow and Jerry Seinfeld. He went on to appear on A&E’s “Evening at the Improv” and co-host NBC’s “Friday Night Videos.” A stint in Reno led him back to Las Vegas, where he headlined at the Golden Nugget, the Venetian and Planet Hollywood Resort.
