The extravagant night featured entertainment from Matt Ryan DJ and a full-length headline performance by yours truly! The highlight of the evening was having TV’s Wildlife Advocate and Columbus Zoo Director Emeritus, Jack Hanna onstage with me. I can honestly say that Jack was the most fun audience volunteer I’ve ever had onstage. It was a sight to see when Jack legitimately thought I had shredded his 20-dollar bill. … Read more
