Mr. Nobody says: End the weekend right... On Monday night. I'm going to stick in a bunch of info about Greg below, but basically, Greg is hilarious. Also he is tender as a lamb. Two qualities you don't find in the same gay dude often. Honestly, if you haven't seen him, you won't get a bunch of other chances to check the dude out FREE. It'll probably be like $100 bucks or something, because he's so funny and tender. Somebody'll be spinning some wax, and somebody will probably be throwing some dice. Gonna be a throwdown with big Ian at the bar slinging drinks as well as peaceful wisdom. And I'll be there. Mr. Nobody. Greg Walloch has appeared on everything from The Howard Stern Show to Kurt Andersen's Studio 360 on Public Radio International. His live solo shows have toured in Moscow, Toronto, Vancouver, London, Ireland, Germany, Australia, Poland, Scotland, Tel Aviv, and across the United States.
