My friend Ryan was in town a couple of months ago to perform at the Leukemia Ball. I didn't realize how big of a deal it was until I arrived and saw a massive room full of people laughing at Ryan's performance. I loved it even more because I hung out with him in the green room and walked with him through the kitchen to the stage. I like seeing how the famous people live.
This was my first time seeing him perform and he's really funny. There's something kind of incredible about watching a friend succeed at doing something that I cannot even conceive of doing.
We stuck around to watch Huey Lewis and the News perform all of the great 80s hits that I forgot I knew.
Ryan was just on Conan last week. It's worth watching.
