Okay so this was one of those times where I failed to be cool, calm and collected in the face of someone famous. People off TV are impressive because you see them and in your head you go “Oh my god, he looks just like he does on TV” and then without even realising it you’re actually shaking and then they look up at you and out loud you just kind of laugh all high and breathy and say “I just love you so much!” and the famous person nods because they’ve heard this a thousand times and you realise you’re going to be lumped in with a thousand other identical fan experiences from the celebrity’s point of view so you try and think of something unique and witty to say.
So you tell them that you were the one who yelled something out during the show and they made fun of you for eating an ice cream, and then the celebrity’s like ‘oh, well, good for you’ and then you have to spell your name and they sign it and you’re rude to keep on talking to them, or take too many photos.
Anyway. It was cool, and he seemed like after doing two hours of stand up like maybe he didn’t really want to keep on talking which I understand.
The up shot is I have another book signed by the author and that makes me happy.
