"I am a filmmaker specializing in animation. Last year, I worked on an animated short directed by a friend of mine. ... One of the festivals the film played at was Montreal's Just for Laughs festival. Since we had made the film, we were given star passes, allowing us access to all the special festival events, just like all the other performers. ... One of the parties we went to was being hosted by Comedy Central. ... Half the people there were big-name stars, the other half were the people who got them their jobs! Needless to say, nobody there was interested in speaking to us. While I was knocking back the martinis and munching on Fruit Loops, I began to hear an altercation taking place. I looked toward the door and who did I see but Emmanuel Lewis and the guy who played Skippy on Family Ties [Marc Price]. They had tried to crash the party, but having no invitations, were being forcibly ejected by the hotel's hired security. I never thought I would ever have been invited to a part that Skippy and Webster weren't cool enough to attend. Hell, they even allowed ex-Monkee Micky Dolenz in!" (Posted: April 1999)
