(#1745) Scott R (Van Nuys, CA)
10/21-24/2004 in Jekyll Island, GA  EVENT: 51st Georgia State Convention  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Sober 19 years since April 1985, this was one of the first talks in the WeJoy collection. I was not initially as impressed as I later came to be.

Another talk on WeJoy describes his talk succinctly:


Scott is a real favorite for many in the program.

A Hollywood writer, producer and Broadway actor while drinking, he became, in sobriety, a caterer on the sets for the very people he used to work with, supervise and direct.

"I'm really getting the gifts now!"

Scott grew up in the Bronx to a crazy Jewish family.

Scott did get back into writing and died sober in 2008.


I heard rumors there was some backlash at the Area level that sponsored the event that he talked more than they liked about drugs.
