Michael Ian Black

The part you don't expect when you start out is all the people who come into your life wanting a piece of you, not caring about your wellbeing. The insane schedule is very difficult. Touring looks very glamourous but it's hard and gruelling - the travelling, the meet-and-greets - it was too crazy.
It is not seen as insane when a fighter, under an attack that will inevitable lead to his death, chooses to take his own life first.
