Andrew Goldenhersh was at the Third Street Promenade recently and caught my act. We had met at a couple of conventions and spoke once on the phone, but I can't really say that I know him. I hear good things about his act and hope to catch it soon.
That's one of the rarely talked about benefits of street performing. You get to meet neat people who just happen to be walking by. People you know. . . people you don't know. . . but know you. Interesting folks all a part of this wild, wacky and wonderful world.
