“A worse thing couldn’t have happened to a better guy,” said Adam Carolla of 31 year-old “Bald” Bryan Bishop’s inoperable brain tumor.

“He’s one of the sharpest, brightest, smartest, nicest guys I’ve ever met.”

Bald long before chemotherapy had a chance to take his hair, Bald Bryan spent mornings alongside Carolla on The Adam Carolla Show (unfortunately canceled last February.) That was where he punctuated the wonderful comedy of Adam Carolla with a unique mixture of witty comments and layers of carefully placed sound effects.

Since last month, when LAist met Bald Bryan and his wife Christie, they've received some good news. Radiation and chemotherapy have shrunk the tumor by more than half of its size. However, Bishop still has cancer, and the expensive fight has he and his wife (his 24/7 caregiver) out of work.
