Multi award winning comedian, Chris Forbes, presents a Work In Progress show about how his dream of becoming a professional basketball player took him all the way to Portland, Oregon when he was just 16 years old. Forbes reflects on his time spent living in the U.S, his run-ins with jocks and cheerleaders at high school and all the unexpected twists along the way as he chased the American dream of playing ball in the NBA.
