I recently had the chance to be a guest on the "Who's the Ross?" late night comedy show at Dante's, a bar in downtown Portland, along with the Autism Society of Oregon's Executive Director Tobi Rates. Aaron Ross, long time friend of mine, is the host and asked us to join the show to promote 14th Annual Autism Society of Oregon's Walk and hopefully raise some money for Autism Society of Oregon.
He gave me some ideas that he had about bits that would be funny and that would require participation from me. He introduced the idea of the "RAWtism Challenge" where I would eat certain raw items based on the donations from the audience. I agreed without knowing what Aaron would find in the grocery store. Here's a clip of what happened!
