I Lost My Heart at Work | Life @ Work | Scoop.it
Somewhere in countless, windowless meeting rooms, we lost our hearts at work.

Comedians spend years honing their stage persona, but when all-star comic Anthony Griffith tells the story of his life as a comedian and as a father, not even he can keep it together.
