“Kirk’s Mike Tyson analogy about taking hits is the most brilliant thing I’ve heard in my entire life. That one story shifted my entire outlook. Kirk is a master storyteller; he will have you laughing in one moment and then hit you with a jaw-dropping point that simply blows your mind. The boy is a genius. Every college student needs to see his show, it should be mandatory.”
