A full-time nationally touring comic, Trackman has recently appeared on CBS's "The Late Late Show", AXS TV's "Gotham Comedy Live" and CBS's "Comics Unleashed."

I vividly remember as a child fantasizing about who or what I'd be when I grow up.
It fluctuated like a schizophrenic meteorologist from Louisiana during hurricane season. One day a horse jockey, another day a lawyer. Retrospectively being a comic makes perfect sense. I've always been funny. Making people see and understand my humor was something that's always come natural to me. I got out of ass kickings, hooked up with ladies way out of my league and made friends easily because I could make people laugh. Truth be told, it's really the only thing I've ever stuck with, and that's stuck with me.
My stand up is based on my real life experiences and observations. My career started and is still based out of NYC. You can see me regularly at Gotham Comedy Club, Comic Strip Live, Broadway Comedy and Stand Up NY.
I've made national television appearances on Comedy Central, CBS's The Late Late Show, CBS's Comics Unleashed, AXS tv's Gotham Comedy Live, MTV's The Buried Life, CBS's Star Search with Arsenio Hall, New Joke City with Robert Klein, NBC's Later, NBC's Friday Night and had my own commercial campaign on Spike tv. Internationally, I've made numerous national late night television appearances in Canada on The Mike Bullard Show and in Holland on Raymaan is Laat and The Comedy Factory.
I pride myself on being able to work squeaky clean and still kill it. This has led me to the corporate comedy market. Performing for Fortune 500 companies like Price Waterhouse Coopers, IHS and The Addis Group. I also had the honor of headlining The Net Together Concert in Times Square NYC, which was simulcast live in San Francisco, for a crowd of over five thousand. I've opened for Joan Rivers, Robin Williams, Dana Carvey and toured with Weird Al Yankovic.
I live, eat and dream comedy.
