It’s been quite a long time since I gave the Pro Bowlers tour a shot. Even more since I appeared in a movie. But I am truly honored to announce that I have landed the role of Jamie Strickland in a follow up to Kingpin.
Am I nervous? You bet I am. I haven’t picked up a bowling ball in more years than I care to remember. I will start training and practicing immediately, and I will be sure to post my updates here. Who knows…if my timing feels decent, I may even hit a couple of tour stops!
Filming starts in June in Ohio (I’ve never been to Ohio), and I really cannot wait.
I hope everyone enjoys the finished product!

In 2016 I found out that I had cancer. Not the type of news you like to hear. But if (and when) I was going to beat it, there were two things I wanted to do in my life after recovery – come out of ‘retirement’ and hit a couple of Pro Bowling events, and try stand up comedy. About a year after my cancer surgery and radiation, I started to feel like myself again. So I hit the lanes and bowled a bit. But once I hit the stage and tried comedy, I realized I had more passion for giving that my time then going back on tour. I believe I will hit a tour stop sometime, but right now it’s not my priority. Comedy is my priority.
