A few days ago, hugely popular NPR show This American Life broadcasted a performance that found comedian Danny Lobell relating a richly hilarious and endearing story to an audience at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York City. The story centers around Lobell and “Blanco,” one of the Ecuadorian gangsters that live in the same building in Brooklyn. Lobell, determined to finally clean up the eye sore that was their backyard, found a motivated helper — and, as host Ira Glass points out, eventually a friend — in “Blanco.” Also, there were chickens.

You can listen to the full story below.
