Magic Mike Live co-writer and emcee recalls meeting Channing Tatum for the first time

0

Few jobs give you the opportunity to touch Channing Tatum, but this is one of them.

When comedian Lyndsay Hailey got the opportunity to audition for Magic Mike Live, she likened the experience to that of her Saturday Night Live audition in New York; a notoriously cold and intimidating environment, with a performer doing their thing to a huge, empty room.

But after two successful auditions for the Magic Mike live show in Vegas, she was able to come face to face with Mike himself, Channing Tatum. But during this round, Channing embraced her, championing her in the process.
