Wow! Thanks guys!

The response from everyone has been amazing all things considered. Really, it's been humbling. Now if I could just figure out a way to parlay this into season tickets at the new arena.

I watched the documentary a couple nights ago. I gave it 5 stars on netflix for you.

To be honest with you, it really wasn't very interesting to me. It's not that you weren't interesting, I just didn't really care for the subject matter and I thought I would. I took Nihongo in High School and even started to minor in it in College but quickly stopped that because it was way too much work for something I really wasn't going to ever use. I have some idea of Japanese culture, but it's 20 year old knowledge at this point. Even if that genre was done in english (the Manzai) I don't think I would find it entertaining.

All that being said congrats and great job with the narrative and the explanations. I guess the one thing I did not really pull from it was do you script it before hand or is it riffing? You may have gone over that, there were definitely times I was having trouble keeping my focus while watching it.

When you're hanging with Jay Z, a lady on each knee, just remember who the people were who gave you a free forum to hone your craft and launch you to worldwide riches and infamy. :)

We made Ryan everything he is today too -- we're a freaking talent incubator.

Every great venture needs this kind of feedback. Perfectly honestly, people are 9x more likely to leave a bad review than a good one. Never mind. Not 'people' but Americans. Its a sad state of affairs with our country but we would rather complain than congratulate. Look around our board. Im guilty of it too.
