Since that time, hes gone on to open for such notable acts as Bobcat Goldthwait, Jim Breuer, Carlos Mencia, Doug Stanhope, Pauly Shore, Spanky Brown, Michael Malone, and Vince Morris. He now headlines comedy clubs, colleges, and breweries all over the South and Midwest.
You may have seen Zoo on the big and small screens, having starred in the Independent Christmas classic Bethlehem, as well as Guilt/Girl. Hes also been on ABC/CMTs Nashville, The Vampire Diaries, and The Walking Dead.
