I’m having a blast performing at wonderful schools all over South Florida and the tour still has almost a month to go. The students have been absolutely terrific everywhere that I go and the important life lessons about character and success of self are resonating in students’ minds day after day. My hour long performances are filled with great stand-up, outrageous silliness, and improvisational moments that are truly priceless:)
I am truly grateful to be able to do what I do. I started performing stand-up comedy at a very young age, when I entertained scores of kids in the old neighborhood. That eventually led me to do the morning announcements at Driftwood Middle School in my hometown of Hollywood, Florida. I have very fond memories of recording the school sports news with impersonations of Muhammad Ali, Howard Cosell, Jimmy Carter, and a host of other well-known people. As far as I know (and I have researched this many times online), I am the only true professional comedian in America who performs separate shows for adults (www.pureinsanity.com) and children.
My dear friend Dr. Janet Dobry, who is the Principal of Robert Taylor Elem. (where I’ve performed many times) in Henderson, Nevada, once said to me following one of my shows, “There is no greater sound than to hear the laughter of children.” Luckily for me, I hear that laughter from hundreds of children on an almost daily basis. So, as I look forward to my next performance at Indian Trace Elem. in Weston, Florida, I say thanks to the many children, teachers, PTAs, administrators, and aftercare directors who cordially invite me to perform in their schools time and time again.
The tour rolls on so look for Stand-Up For Kids in your town…………There’s only one “Mr. L.” Bye for now…………..
