“I met Marjorie in the late 80s. But that’s when I became homeless. I met her at a comedy club. I was performing one night and she came in. I wasn’t no star or nothing. Nobody knew me. Oh, she took my breath away. And I stopped talking and the audience was just looking at me and they started laughing,” he recalled.
