This knucklehead from Detroit joined the Navy to see the world. He soaked up some culture and developed a love for science. Civilian life gave him an engineering degree, a big boy job and the appetite for more. He took a hefty bite out of the comedy bug. During the day, just your mild mannered engineer. But by night, well, he tackles the big issues, from political correctness to Garth Brooks. This tall drink of caramel milk does a body good.
