Volvo Rents originally presented the "Hard Hat Comedy Show" in Asheville, NC at the Diana Wortham Theater. Over 500 people turned out to enjoy some "construction comedy" to benefit the Manna Food Bank.

I typically perform in a suit, but wanted a more down-to-earth look to fit the construction theme. And I should warn you, if you search Google for images of "construction workers", you'll get some pretty disturbing results. Ditching that research, I just headed over to Sears to pick up a flannel shirt. It did the trick.
I was tapped to emcee the event, due in part to my heavy rotation on Blue Collar Radio, I'm no "construction comedian", but I figured my recent hernia surgery would be good relatable material for construction workers. I also brought down the house with my classic bit on haunted mobile homes.
Look for the "Hardhat Comedy Show" now on DVD.
