First of I would like to extend a HUGE thank you and bravo to Brad Copeland, Joey Pollari, Bubba Lewis, Mark Young, Alex Frnka, Brett Gelman, Taika Watiti, Michael Bliden, Todd Strauss-Schulson, Iain Morris, Damon Beesley, Aaron Kaplan, John Levenstein, Cody Heller, Brett Konner, Debbie Jhoon, Michael Feldman, Ryan Ridley, Daniel Sweren-Becker, Marisa Pinson, Ian Murphy, and the rest of the cast and crew for an amazing life changing experience. You are all talented, wonderful people and I couldn’t have been more honored or thankful that I now have you all in my life let alone that we were able to work on a wonderful TV show together.
Secondly, I would like to thank the people who watched the show, or as I liked to call them “The InbetweenerER’s”. You guys kept me laughing every week with your quotes and questions and I couldn’t be more thankful that I got to entertain you all for a few months as Jay.
This was a crazy experience, but one that I will always be able to look back at and smile knowing that we did a fantastic job. Now, I can be upset, but why be? I am so fortunate to be in this business (especially with this face) and be working. 4 years ago I was working at a comic-book shop in Ann Arbor and now I constantly get to work with people I admire and look up to as if it’s an everyday not so special thing (which is not the case).
Thanks to everyone again for making this an unforgettable experience. Jay Cartwright was a real weird 15 year old and I’m so tickled that I got to play around as him.
I send you off with a wonderful quote:
