I have owned TickleMeEntertainment.com for the past six years in Las Vegas. During this time, I have also been performing stand-up comedy. In a prior life, I owned several business process outsourcing and procurement businesses and I was heavily involved in campaign and electoral politics.  I speak four languages and I have lived in northern New Jersey, Maryland, Manila, Venezuela, Spain, and China.

How do you describe your comedy style? Do you write your own material? If you could open for any comic, who would it be?
Apr 13, 2:11PM EDT0

Observational and ethnic is my comedy style. Yes. I write my own material. I would love to open for Jerry Seinfeld.

The comedy world is not as comic as it looks. Why is there so much depression, sadness, addiction—in the comedy world?
Apr 13, 7:44AM EDT0

The more tragic the experience is, the funnier it can be. Example: I lost my virginity to my babysitter. (No need to applause) uncle jimmy was rough.

What, to your mind, is the relationship of comedy to depression and suffering?
Apr 13, 5:52AM EDT0

It is the light in the hallway of darkness. When you can find the funny in your depression and suffering, then you will slowly make it out.

How did the "Tickle Me Entertainment" business come about, and how exactly does it justify its name in the entertainment world?
Apr 13, 5:18AM EDT0

TickleMe Dntertainment started out of sheer necessity in Las Vegas. I moved to Las Vegas from New Jersey and had a son. I couldn’t travel anymore as a comedian, so I ended up starting my own entertainment company which began producing and marketing shows, managing talent, and event planning. It became a lucrative business.

What are the current projects you are working at Tickle Me Entertainment?
Apr 12, 9:15PM EDT0

Currently, I co-produce the 2016 and 2017 Best Comedy Club and the Best Comedy Show in Las Vegas as voted on by the Las Vegas Review Journal. I also market the show Stripped with Carl LaBove at Bally’s. I book over 500 acts per year. And I also produce and market The Comedy at the Eclipse Theaters show. I have a marketing tool coming out called Show Marketing Pro – it is an automated marketing tool to help sell tickets for shows.

Apr 13, 5:35PM EDT0
Who do you think is your biggest competitor in the entertainment world? What differentiates your company?
Apr 12, 12:29PM EDT0

Currently, my competitors include Brad Gattetts Comedy Club at MGM and laugh factory at Tropicana. However, they only deal with a list and B list celebrity Comedians. My comedy show includes the funniest comedians in the country that have not received as much TV and film exposure, but are the most hilarious people in the country. Also, with regard to my marketing tool, there is no competition currently.
