The Jester of All Maladies
I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma in December 2019 and went through cancer treatment during the height of COVID-19. Then, after a brief remission, I was diagnosed with a more aggressive lymphoma in December 2020. Today I am in full remission, thanks to chemo, immunotherapy, loads of love, and Fig Newtons. "The Jester of All Maladies" is a one-hour multimedia comedy show in which I tell my story.

"A Lifetime of Hallmark," the mostly weekly podcast I do with Les Kurkendaal-Barrett and Jason Bowers has surpassed 10,000 downloads and 100 episodes. And we're still going strong, doing our comedic examinations of Lifetime and Hallmark films.
From June 25 - November 2020 comedy sketches I created aired every Thursday night on FringeLiveStream on FacebookLive. The sketches then aired as part of "The Kurt Fitzpatrick Made-It-This-Far Holiday Special" in December of that year.
In 2020 I appeared on the podcasts "A Scotsman Talks to Kurt Fitzpatrick" and the Cancer Care podcast, Cancer Out Loud, in S2 episode 3, "Seize the Day." In 2021 I appeared on the podcast Rank N Review where I discussed crazy 80's movies, like "Critters 2: The Main Course." I have guested on several episodes of "The Shelf Shedding Movie Show!" discussing films by Al Pacino Paul Newman, and Steve McQueen and the 2022 Oscar Picks episode.
