Dick started his professional comedy career in the early '80s at Houston's Comedy Workshop with the likes of Bill Hicks, Sam Kinison and T. Shaun Shannon of SNL fame.
He dropped out of the professional scene in the early '90s but continued to do charity shows and talent nights on cruise ships. One of the talent night shows got him a paid gig on Norwegian Cruise Lines in 2002 and he has been back performing on cruise ships and comedy clubs ever since.
Performing Phil Harris skits and taking notes on Bob Hope shows as a kid and entertaining groups in high school and college prepared him for comedy. A live TV talk show, training and public speaking throughout his career as a banker and sales training consultant kept him always in front of audiences.
His stint as a professional comic during the '80s improved his training and speaking immensely but his first love was always stand-up. His book, "Nobody Told Me I'd Have To Sell," published in '96, gave him national recognition.
