Oscars' Pizza Delivery Guy Stops By 'Ellen' & Leaves w/ Big Tip!
Check out Ellen's sit-down with Edgar Martirosyan! And yes, he's a real pizza delivery guy (and the owner of Big Mama's and Papa's Pizzeria)!
From Ellen and Edgar's chat:
"You thought you were going to bring them (the pizzas) to some producers? What did they tell you?" asked DeGeneres.
"Yeah, they told me I'm just going to deliver for writers and then when I was there they just told me wait here and you came out…and you said I'm going to let you know when to follow me and I was like, we're we going," said Martirosyan. "You said just follow me and I'm going then I'm on a stage… I was in shock."
"So you left before, I wanted to get you a tip and I passed Pharrell's hat around and I ended up getting around $600 something like that," said DeGeneres. "Here is some more…here is $1000. Here is a total of $1000."
According to USA TODAY:
After making its Sunday debut on the Oscars, Big Mama's and Papa's ran out of dough and its website crashed, an employee told USA TODAY during a call to the pizza shop.
