It’s poker night at Sam’s house and a few of his good friends stopped by to play. Sadly, Sam Simon, recent Writer’s Guild Award recipient, co-creator of the beloved The Simpsons and well-known poker enthusiast is fighting what has been diagnosed as terminal colon cancer.
Throughout his fight his very good friend (and ex-wife) Jennifer Tilly has been by his side with her partner, the loveable poker pro Phil Laak and together they have been there to support Sam. That includes on this evening when some good friends got together for some fun and competition at Simon’s house. While it’s unlikely that any real money is on the line, as Sam doesn’t need any and he’s been actively giving his vast fortunes away, the competition and bragging rights were probably stakes enough to have fueled this Hollywood Home Game.
Inspiring to see Simon looking so good, having some fun, surrounded by friends.
