Yesterday I missed the opportunity to bring awareness to a very special birthday. Special in the sense of human value, not necessarily because societal milestone. David Gborie turned 24; I’m thankful he’s alive. Very rarely does a guy like David come along, a stranger who quickly becomes a brother/rival/friend. He’s easily one of my top ten local comedians in the Bay, super nice and complementary to the scene [especially to what I do on stage], and inspirational on a very deep level. His presence makes me strive to do better, and I look forward to many more birthdays to remind me of that necessity.
