5/1/16- 

Ok folks. It's been a real fuck of a month for me. I'll spare you the details but let's just say it's been one stressful thing after another the whole month. There were many times I just didn't want to leave my house, or do anything.

One of the few things I had to look forward to was performing every night at The Comedy Studio. I would get super stressed during my day, and want to recede or hide from everything. But then I'd go to the Studio, and remember why I get out every day.

I've been so stressed out that i feel like I haven't been able to savor this month as much as I should have. And I'm sad to see it go. This month has taught me many things about myself. Most importantly, that I NEED this. That things feel empty without it. That without this, shitty days are just shitty days with nothing at the end.

Thanks to my parents Charles Ortolani and Melissa Fleming for making me with genitals and putting up with me for 28 years and change. Thanks toKatie McCarthy for putting up with me every day. I love you folks a lot.

Tonight is my last night as resident. I'm sad to see it go. But I'm extremely grateful to Vanessa Myers Brett Koller Sasha Go Rick Canavan and Andrea Hogan-McAlpin for all of the amazing work they do. And most of all, to Rick Jenkins for taking a chance on me years ago, and then another one this year. It's been a blast.

Happy 20th Studio.

11/30/15- I would like to say I had a wonderful time in Philadelphia for the Philly Improv Theater's Black Friday Comedy Marathon. I met a lot of great people, who all seem to know Sam Ike, ate some great food, and saw some great comedy. I can't wait to get back as soon as I can. I would espiecally like to thank Nicole Yates for reaching out to me, and giving me all the helpful info that she did. I would have been lost without her. Thanks Philly! See you soon, I hope!

11/20/15 Due to a scheduling error, I won't be appearing on the the Thanksgoofing show. It was originally scheduled for 11/21/15, but was rescheduled to 11/28/15. You guys should totally still go though. It'll be a super awesome show.
