I can’t *even* with the audio from our live shows, so this is a single story short for you. (This is technically the 14th episode but 2 of them were single story shorts that I didn’t number. But whatever, you haven’t missed anything!)
This is a story about when my friend Corrie and I went to Las Vegas and did not meet Michael Keaton.

Looking through some old home movies today I came across this one of a birthday party. I opened up a gift and popped up to show my mom that the mailing address for New Kids on the Block was on the back. Immediately made me think of Episode 1. I guess I always wanted to meet my idols! I believe this video was taken on my 7th birthday. Also, it was much easier for me to just take a quick phone video of my computer vs ripping the video from the dvd so the quality isn’t the best…but it wasn’t the best to begin with.
The last post contained a teaser for episode 1 where you heard the first story in its entirety. In Chapter 1, I explore the topic of meeting your heroes and consider the advice that one should never meet their heroes or idols in a sort of audio essay. To the left is a photo of myself meeting my hero, who I talk about in this episode, comedianne (isn’t that word classy?), Tig Notaro. She hosts a podcast on the Earlwolf Network called Professor Blastoff and has appeared on tv on programs such as The Sarah Silverman Program and various late night appearances including this set on Conan which is one of my favorites.
In the all new Chapter 2, contributor Lisa Witte talks about meeting her hero, Ryan Stiles. Ryan is an improv actor best known for his work on the show Whose Line Is It Anyway? (Both British and American Versions). She muses on her feelings and admiration for Stiles and what the day was like for her. Lisa also compiled this Buzzfeed list A Compilation of Reasons to Love Ryan Stiles which she doesn’t mention on the podcast but is a little bonus for our readers. This photo that Lisa provided was from the first time she met Ryan.
Stick around at the end of this episode to hear Lisa and me chat more on the subject.
