If you live in the LA area or are ever visiting the LA area, one of the cool things you can do for free is be a part of a live audience for any of the shows that film as a live taping! [You can check out a schedule/list of all the shows you can get tickets for HERE
.] I recently went to a live taping of 2 Broke Girls, for the second time, over at the WB lot. The first time I went solo as a means to do some research on what shooting multi-cam comedies are like. It was a fun experience, even by myself, to witness the camraderie of the actors on set. The taping went by fairly quickly--it is only a half hour comedy afterall.
However, this second time I went to the taping was to support my buddy LAWRENCE KAO
who had a co-star role in this episode titled "No New Friends" (which should air roughly 5 weeks from now). And, this second time I got to go with 2 friends, Ellen Kim and Khalif Boyd, as VIP guests courtesy of Lawrence! This time around the taping went on quite a bit longer so we were getting a bit antsy but it was nice to share a lot of laughter with fun friends. After the taping was over, Lawrence was able to bring us down to walk around on the set!

It was so cool for us to get to see our friend at work--imagine getting to call this your office for the week! All of us are pursuing careers in the entertainment industry so seeing Lawrence do his thing on such a big set was definitely motivational to say the least. I can be self-depricating and joking about being broke all the time, but at the end of the day I know this journey is real and worth it. Friends like Lawrence remind me that the struggle/hustle/journey--however you want to call it--always pays off, without fail, for good people who work hard and practice patience. I am so incredibly proud of him and happy to have been a part of this moment!
Lastly, I of course have to note that this day (11.3.15) was my personal official first day of fall where I could FINALLY start to layer and bundle up here in LA! That's right folks, the temperatures are starting to drop which means the clothes will start to pile on!
