It has always been my dream one day to actually own a Comedy Club. See my 1st career was as a Stand Up Comic and I traveled the United States, Bahamas, and Caymans from the age of 18 till I was 24 years Old. In that time I was able to perform with and open for Tommy Chong, Larry The Cable Guy, Steve Harvey, Bad Company, and Vince Neil from Motley Crue. With the recent growth and success of Jimmy Bear’s BBQ (which had always been my Dad’s dream, that I pursued), I started thinking about what my passion was and what I really wanted to do. We then come full circle to Porky’s Comedy Club.
The idea was hatched in 2015 but didn’t see the light until 2018. I carried the logo on my phone for 3 years telling everyone I was going to eventually open a Comedy Club in Saint Cloud.
In the Fall of 2016 I reacquainted myself with an old comedy buddy Eric Godfrey (Eric was Carrot Tops Road Manager and also got his first start opening for Jerry Seinfeld) who was doing a once a month comedy night at a local bar. With only 50 seats and not really a comedy club, just a room to perform in, I got with Eric and started being his house MC and opening act for his monthly Comedy Club.
The opportunity presented itself to procure the location we are currently at and within 30days of signing the lease we transformed the place into mostly what you see today!
Truly blessed to be living my dream, my fathers dream, and performing for others once again!
