Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends meeting celebrities.
Last year, I was "On the Beat" as always at C2E2, but I tried something new. For creators I have previously interviewed multiple times, I asked entertainer extraordinaire Joey Roth to handle the interviewing duties.
Joey brought a new perspective and the result was really fun. I am happy to report, Joey has confirmed he will repeat his role at C2E2 2021.
Author James Finn Garner was one of Joey's interview subjects. That interview can be found at On the Beat With James Finn Garner at C2E2 2020.
James is a New York Times best-selling author of many books. I enjoyed all of his books, but his Rex Koko series is my favorite. The Rex Koko series is a set of clown noir mysteries. It is such a funny and original concept. I fell in love with it from first glance and have been on board with each new novel. Joey and James discussed that and more.
You'll notice Joey is holding a title belt. It's not a fake. Joey is the current IPW Chicagoland champ, a title he has held for 800+ days. He's also a manager, an actor a podcaster and more. I was very happy to land him for my interview role and I look forward to more fun.
