#Roadto40 Roast Highlights: Clay’s 40th Birthday

Here’s a highlight video of my #Roadto40 Roast held at the Hog Shack Cook House in Richmond on Saturday, June 28, 2014. I’ve condensed 2 hours of roasts down to 30 minutes.

I’ve never had so much fun having my self-esteem completely shredded. And I can’t really complain about the birthday serenade by Marie and Arielle (right at the start of the video). And thanks to Nicole for the awesome cake!

The speakers touch on all aspects of my life, from growing up to youth ministry to social media to the Canucks to YouTube videos to my friendship with Matt Maher haha. The complete list of speakers (in order of appearance in the video is):

-Gerard Garcia and Rich Chen
-Krissy Chua Litam
-Derek Hume
-Joyce Santos
-Craig Boyd
-Joseph San Jose
-Christina Estrada
-Oggy Luistro
-Arielle Tuliao
-Jason and Mike McBurney
-Jason Imoo

Big thanks to Allan and John of the Hog Shack for hosting us!
