Finding a Barber Shop, Pt. 2

Still looking for a decent barber shop in Hollywood. After going to the loud and happenin' Floyd's Barbershop, I was looking for a place a little more low-key. Enter Franco's Barbershop -- with the wackiest barber I've ever seen. Franco was a little hesitant about being interviewed at first, but once he got going, it was hard for him to stop. He seemed adamant to prove that his place was very successful.

The Tonight Show

Went to a taping of "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno. Got a great seat in the third row and was able to be part of the group of folks who come up to the stage and shake Jay's hand at the beginning of the show.

But the more exciting part was before the show, when Jay came out and opened the floor to questions. When he found out I walked across America, he invited me on stage to get my picture taken with him and even insisted that I sit in the guest chair, so I could pretend I was a guest on the show. Nice guy.

The Price is Wrong

A few days after arriving in LA, I tried to get picked on "The Price is Right." Even though I did make it into the audience (front-row seat), I wasn't called down to Contestant's Row. But there's a nice shot of me doing a goofy dance in the studio. The episode just aired today... I'm the fool in the bottom-left corner.
