Comedian; Best Known for "Impractical Jokers"

He first joined The Tenderloins in 2007 after the troupe decided to transition from live shows to filmed sketches. He replaced Mike Boccio as the fourth member of the troupe.

Following years of live shows, in 2006, The Tenderloins redirected their talents to filmed comedic sketches.The Tenderloins comedic sketches have accumulated millions of views on YouTube, MySpace, Metacafe, and other websites. In 2007, the troupe won the $100,000 grand prize in the NBC It’s Your Show competition for the sketch “Time Thugs”.

Following the troupe's online successes, the four were signed to develop a scripted comedy pilot for Spike TV based on their own lives. The pilot was shot on location in 2008 on Staten Island, as well as other locations around New York City. Spike TV ultimately passed on the series. A second pilot starring The Tenderloins was named as an official selection of the 2009 New York Television Festival.
