Announcement! Most of my little announcements are fun… this one, not so much! Soooo I’m having knee surgery on 10/31. As of right now I’m giving myself 3 months to heal with a return date of Feb 6th to The Flamingo, but that could change in either direction depending on how my recovery goes! Everyone has been so kind and caring about this upsetting info, and I appreciate that very much. I was not in an accident or anything like that. Chalk it up to years of not sufficiently warming up / cooling down from my show. 1 too many high kicks I guess! My knee has been bothering me for years now, and it’s time I get this handled. I have a tear in my meniscus as well as some torn cartilage.
This is going to be hard for someone as active as me, but I’m determined to stay positive and make the most of it! My doctor believes that after a few weeks on crutches I’ll be able to wear a brace for a few hours here and there so I can still do my TV and corporate hosting, and some modified one-off shows until I’m 100% and can get back to it 5 nights / week. This will also give me a chance to focus on growing my nonprofit Win-Win Entertainment at the national level.
I apologize to anyone who has purchased tickets to my show at The Flamingo between now and Feb 6th. You will of course be refunded, but more than that I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. We were so close to hitting our 1000th show with Caesars Entertainment (we’re at #923!), and we were planning a big ole party around that. I guess we’re going to have to wait until mid-2017 for that! Thanks for all the love, can’t wait to get back to it…
Very low gentle kick,
