A stand-up comedian with over twenty years of professional experience, Milt has performed everywhere from television to cruise ships, from comedy clubs and college campuses to corporate events ranging in audience size of twenty to two thousand.

He’s made numerous television appearances; several performances on An Evening At The Improv, and comedy specials for PBS and Showtime, and regularly performs for cruise lines like Royal Caribbean, Holland America, and Princess.

Milt’s style of stand-up comedy is clean, clever, and funny. His humor has always been devoid of stereotypes, cheap shots, or laughter at anyone’s expense; in other words , never divisive or derisive.

With material focusing on everyday experiences about his wife and kids, travels, and how we relate to the world around us; audiences always come away feeling good about how they chose to laugh.

Milt is a writer as well;  he’s written for Dennis Miller’s television show, and published a collection of humorous short stories, Stories from the Delux. With his writing ability and performance skills, Milt can make every show unique, enjoying the challenge of personalizing each show with jokes for that performance’s audience.

An expressive performer; The Denver Rocky Mountain News said, “Half the show is watching his face as he tells his stories.”
