My first night in LA last week, I went with Joey and Kyle to see a comedy show at the Upright Citizens Brigade house. While waiting in line to get into the show, we were standing outside on the sidewalk. At one point, a car pulled up. Unfortunately, I was intrigued by the offerings in the adjacent book shop, and just happened to turn around at the same time the car stopped. A few seconds later I look behind my shoulder to double check if maybe perhaps a bird had given me a crap surprise or something. Luckily, my shoulder was clean. I was so relieved that I didn’t notice the car was still there, waiting for someone in line to ask if they needed help. Moments later, Kyle, being the good citizen he is, asked the driver what was up, and it turns out the woman just needed directions on where to park for the comedy show. It also turns out that the woman was Janeane Garofalo.
It’s too bad I didn’t get a chance to help her out. As my friends will tell you, I am never one to turn my back on someone . It’s the same way how I follow Ari’s lead by never falling asleep when someone has really interesting to say. Now if you’ll pardon me, I’m gonna go lift weights.
