  1. This one bugs me. “I think Twitter is horrendous” says the comedian who’s tweeted hundreds of times. Also, it seems as though he is originally from Oklahoma City, just like Chris. I don’t believe there have ever been any other castaways from there.

  2. Do you know he went to Harvard?

    I graduated shortly after him but don’t know anyone who knows him. He doesn’t follow anyone I know on any social media accounts, and no one I know follows him. It’s a small school with a smaller gay community (I’m gay) so I’m very surprised to not know anyone in common… He was either very antisocial or didn’t go there. Perhaps the Extension School.
