PORTLAND, Maine -- Back in January 2002, Ian Harvie had never considered comedy as a career option.
Then one day, something very serendipitous happened … it was something so random, but so significant, it would change his life in many ways.
Harvie got a postcard in the mail from a man named Tim Ferrell, advertising a local comedy writing workshop. He's not sure how Ferrell got his name or address, but after kicking the idea around a little while, he decided to take the class.
"Tim Ferrell brought me to the dance," Harvie told San Diego Gay & Lesbian News.
