[I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the readers of this blog. The notoriety and momentum of this experiment/experience is as yours as it is mine. Thank you to the San Francisco Bay Area comedy community for being the best comedy scene in the country (as far as I know), thanks to the Internet for keeping everything scattered and revelatory, thanks to Dana Sitar whom I’m sure had a hand in my humble embarrassment for the last few days, thanks to Emily Heller for inspiring CC’s inception (see: Sex Talk With Kaseem), thanks to David Cairns for saving Courting Comedy, and thanks to all those that deserve it (artist, photographers, producers, luminaries, content creators, dreamers, hustlers, and champions). While the anniversary is a month away, I look forward to YEAR THREE with pride and humility. - O.J.]
