I Heart Hal Sparks

Hal Sparks was in town performing at a local comedy club. I just came back from the show, and he was awesome! He was really funny. He got the whole place laughing so hard. I am sure most people recognize him but just don't know where the hell you've seen him. He was one of the main characters in Queer as Folk. He was on Talk Soup for a short stint. And he was the bubble wrap guy in Dude, Where's My Car? I have been a fan of his since his days in Queer As Folk. I didn't realize he was a comic until recently and found out that he performed locally every once in a while. So I had to check him out! And thank goodness I did.

Before the show, I told my husband that I really wanted to get a picture with him. And I did it! He was standing around after the show. We almost passed by him without even knowing it. Luckily, I saw some people crowded around him. So I went up to him giddy-like and gave him an enthusiastic "HI!" My husband told me later that he imitated me. Haha! Hal Sparks made fun of me! How cool is that? I didn't even notice because I was too excited. Then I told him that I loved him in Queer as Folk. He said thanks...I think I recall. And I gave him a hug!! Then my husband took our picture! It was a good one too. Woohoo! It was awesome! I heart Hal Sparks.

Hahaha. He made fun of youuuu!

So is he gay?

Tara said...

No, he is not gay. Just because he played a gay dude on TV. Sheesh! He is 40 years old and goes out with this graphic designer who is 25! He is a playa.
