Early in his career, he performed as a stand-up comic and appeared in television commercials, an HBO Comedy Special, Richard Jeni: Crazy from the Heat, and two made-for-cable movies, Miami Models and International Tease.
Former "Miami Vice" Co-Star, Philip Michael Thomas, saw Mustard in a theatrical stage production and contracted Mustard to perform at Mr. Thomas's North Miami Beach theater for two Edward Albee stage plays.

"BOYCOTT" Historical ⋄ Drama In this one-hour scripted, dramatic, historical-fiction, limited series, inspired by real-life events, two immigrant women in NYC Lower East Side in 1902 take on the nation's powerful business monopoly - the Beef Trust, and win. This event not only changes their lives but the course of US history. The "Boycott" gave a voice to women at a time of oppressive patriarchy. A powerful Bechdel and Four-Quadrant friendly series, “Boycott” is the single most important female social activist story that has never been told. It is as timely and poignant today as 119 years ago.
