New York's "Best Naked Impresario"
"Porkpie owns the evening with the unfaltering wit of his rapid-fire banter."
"Impresario, fiction writer, comedian, bottom-pincher and good-natured bon vivant."
On "The Corpse Wore Pasties": "Much of the fun lies in Porkpie's witty and telling observations of life in the raunchy burlesque world, and the tone is more playful than pornographic despite plentiful references to sexual activity. Readers will enjoy the twists and action and hope for future Porkpie investigations."
"Most Innovative" 2006 (co-winner)
"Full of double entendres, rattling them off as smoothly as an adept playa runs game."
