Thanks JFL42 for another great weekend! I hosted two In Conversations, both very funny and both very revealing. Cristela Alonzo was so heartfelt, so powerful and so funny. Jim Norton said to me “we can talk about anything…” and then we did. He was open, honest and, like Cristela, very funny. Thanks JFL for giving me the best seat in the house for both shows.
