Mark Green is the best. There’s no question about it. He’s a political scenester in New York who is apparently running for public advocate. He just made this ad that proves you don’t need any money to do something awesome:
A few years ago, I went to some fund-raising event that Kyle was performing at. It was at the nonprofit where FOA (friend of Awkward) Desiree Burch worked, and after the performances, the woman who headed the charity up gave a short speech. Afterwards, Kyle and I were riding in the elevator with Mr. Green, who had come to see the event. First of all, he’s a short, short man. Second of all, we got to talking with him, and Kyle asked him if he enjoyed himself.
“Oh yeah,” he said. “Especially the final speaker. What a doll.”
“Yeah, she wasn’t bad,” Kyle said.
“She’s my wife,” Mark Green admitted.
“Your wife is a foxy, foxy lady,” Kyle said.
To this day, I am unaware of whether Kyle had any idea who he was talking to, but it was a smooth move, nonetheless.
