After a chance run-in with another comedian at another Jimmy's Diner, Ryan Montbleau joined me for a milkshake on the sidewalk. (Well, maybe I should clarify that we both had milkshakes. It wasn't one of those two-straw, one-cup situations.) Ryan told me his tale, from a revelation he had walking around his college campus to working the box office at Boston's original House of Blues to watching his ever-growing fanbase sing along to songs he'd only ever imagined they'd learn the words to. It's all here, including the story behind Growing Light, his band's latest album, recorded just after two of his bandmates announced their departures.
