Welcome to YOU JUST HAVE TO LAUGH – also known as YJHTL.

Our purpose is serve humanity one laugh at a time. We do this by using humor to make TOUGH TIMES better. And it works.In my journey as a comedian for over 37 years I have witnessed the healing effects humor and laughter have had on people going through life’s toughest times. My intention is to share with you what thousands of people have shared with me. Humor heals us emotionally.

That’s what my two books prove. Real stories from real people that find humor and joy smack dab in the middle of their kaleidoscope of crap. Check them out at my laugh store. If you or someone you know is going through a tough time these books will help.

I created the Web series because I wanted you to SEE what I got to see when I interviewed someone – their joy, their pain and their ability to find humor in a not-so funny time. There are no writers, no directors and no actors pretending to be real people. These amazing people will Inspire, teach and entertain you as they share their unique humorous victories. I am thrilled at the opportunity to share it with you. Welcome to our joyful and playful fellowship!



My family and I just got off the NCL Jewel this morning and I just had to tell you how much we enjoyed you shows. I have worked in trauma/intensive care nursing for 22 years and I greatly appreciate your humor about our field. I’d i didn’t laugh sometimes I would spend all my days crying and probably would have already jumped off a ledge or something. Keep doing what you’re doing and inspiring others with your humor. Hope to see you again someday!!

I just got off the Jewel and this was my second cruise with you and you are the highlight. I talked with you on the phone after the last cruise over a shipping hiccup but we laughed and you mailed me my stuff right away. You are so funny and I appreciate what you have taught me because I used it when I went through major surgery in June of this past year. Bless You my friend.
