H.P. made a living working in accounting but then he decided to try his hand in the entertainment field starting with stand up comedy. He has had his ups and downs in stand up but he knew he had a unique talent at making people laugh so he continues to do stand up to this very day.

H.P. was casted recently in the play, “Bad Uncle,The Play” by Rob Torres, receiving rave reviews for his hilarious performance as “Witty Anderson” and “Mr. Flacco, the principle.”
