Thanks for the Mitch story! Great impersonation. I could hear the care taken in listening to him: cadence, accent, everything! I loved hearing a story about stand-up comedy.
Thanks Paula! If you listen to the VERY end of the episode, we put some actual Mitch clips there. So funny. – Kevin
It’s been nearly 15 years since we lost Mitch…and he still pops up here and there.
I saw his last show in St. Louis, about three weeks before he died. I’ve never heard the Hockey Love spots.
Thank you so much for sharing that this week.
Your story was wonderful, thank you for sharing it! I have a friend with Lyme and I’m just so grateful that more people now are finding out what it is instead of suffering for years without knowing what it is (as well as everyone else doubting it’s anything at all.) I loved the (happy) ending (sorry, bad pun 😉 but it is happy. Good luck, you sound like you’re on your way!
Thank you Christina for thinking outside the box and taking the road to recovery by the horns.
I applaud you for taking the job that was offered and making it YOUR ladder.
In college many of my girlfriends danced to make ends meet and fund their dreams. I was afraid of what others would think of me so I passed and at 50yrs old, the only one of the bunch, still paying off student loans.
Your story is more powerful than you know, by taking control of your own narrative of what it means to be an adult entertainer and what your life and future can hold by taking control of that story and what it means.
Does Christina Doll, the Lyme disease survivor, have an Instagram or some social site?
No, not all RISK! storytellers appear on the show going by their real names. – Kevin
