As a bit of context, the biography I chose to study was I Must Say: My Life as a Humble Comedy Legend, the autobiography of Martin Short.  Quote 1 “Canada is a sparsely populated nation, a mere 34 million people across a vast expanse of land. Consequently, as you grow up there, you encounter more weirdos who […]

In this post, I’ll be elaborating on my progress as well as answering both the questions for this post and the questions I missed from the previous post. Get […]
