"Yonan manages to offend women and gays, as well as lovers of language in about a minute’s time." -The Edge
You know you want it...
You must've unsubscribed from my Mom's emails. Here's a soundbite:
Actor/writer born and raised in Chicago. After 10 years in NYC I moved to LA to start welcoming rejection on a whole new level. Loving it so far and looking forward to the millions of dollars awaiting me in my future (possibly my next life).
Clearly you haven't met me yet. I'm super great.
Once we bond you’ll want me to be the Sonny to your Cher. The garlic mayo on your fries. The token ethnic in your sitcom. (Don’t worry, I’m ethnic in a way that doesn’t scare white people).
