RS: You're one of the most consistently entertaining stand-up comedians working in New York. Where are some of your favorite venues to perform?
TD: Am I? Consistently? That's a whole lot of pressure. I have been doing a show every Tuesday at Bunga's Den right outside of 14th Street in Manhattan. It's a great room and there is both a Wendy's and a Taco Bell nearby so that's pretty great. I also love performing on boats.
You recently trimmed your beard, a controversial move considering how strong support was for it. Are you going to allow it to grow back?
Generally I trim my beard between two and three times a year. I trimmed back in April and generally I wouldn't trim again until after the summer but I am the best man at my brother's wedding in August so my mommy will probably insist on a trim. I am a 33 year old man.
What can people expect from your set?
I have just been told that my set should be between 4 and 6 minutes so expect about 4 minutes of jokes 1 minute of me "getting my sea legs," and another minute of tears.
