What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I was at Zanies in St. Charles, where Josh Blue from Last Comic Standing was performing and I had to go to the bathroom. The bouncer would not let me out, and I was begging him. He finally let me out but did not tell me Josh Blue was right behind the door when I came through and nearly knocked him down. He heckled me for it when he was onstage.
