My part in trade shows Joe Scarp just copying. A great guy was here last time. He, my partner He put up the money. He's a builder and we're gonna make fifty million So what's up he's got fifty Maybe he doesn't need another fifty and got a little greedy. Why did you go?

Even they won't admitted they fuck like tat right. It's a good source That's a natural doesn't have that asked any thing that allotted jarred sources. And you know I did all the press. We did all this shit. I said if I would instead being upon. I should have made twenty dollars an hour with its well. So you guys doing a panic. Has now Donna Purkis we watch yeah, yes, assessment. Could me into its. We got approached by a bunch of different producers towards the end of last year
but wasn't an idea and we thought about it. We had done a show like on stage in conversation like inside the actor studio, and we did all over. The country did Australia last year, and then couple reduces said: do you wanna do podcast and we worked. Jeff was the best of the producer, so we fix Our way to do it, we were gonna, do it in the studio live like this at the end of March in New York and the covered everything hit, so we were going to do it at all. We were gonna put it off as we would depressed and we would like who needs a pie cast in the midst of all this stuff. Is New York like now. You know I've been there. I left I've been here a month. Now I have a place down in Orange County and New York was all fucked up and it's all boarded up, my! U my daughter's there. I live downtown way downtown and I was going out like an hour day. That's it
went out an hour day of its could take a walk through the streets are empty, There are three twenty a night now, after the looting day dish I shall now and I'll just destroyed in Rwanda, Kobza, very timid in and it's all fucked up I mean it's offered, thereby I don't dont know what happens there. I mean, I don't know, I don't know how it happened. Lately, the scene, the car standing around, whether alluding the art galleries and so her. While they were smash and fifth avenue- fuck is this. I don't know like the end of the world. Scary and applause the worst fuckin, I'm not a political guy at all Joe, like not at all, but he's the worst Falcon human that maybe walks the face of the earth. I kitchen and you know I only an apartment in Manhattan for like nine years and when he came the mayor within a year here you saw even six months right. You saw like these facts,
changes. I'm goin out, I'm selling my fuckin place, I saw my point. What changes kinds of shit, the cops basically they have one hand tied behind their backs. He change all these laws. Stop in France that some needed to be changed some not just a homeless, is everywhere all of a sudden. The trains or impossible tat is all I just ship calling on you know, and I have to blame. The mayor I mean did you know where I lived in TAT is I'm a compassionate and homeless. I dont know the answer, which is why I'm not the Falcon mayor, but they're everywhere. Doing here are governor was the mayor of San Francisco, which is the craziest for complaints of ever seeing your life becomes almost beer, it's a problem, and now after cove it it's like wrapped up forty percent of the homeless duration, theirs it doesn't make sense. Like you see, in these beautiful homes, camp sites in front of him, and these people are.
Come out of their houses and you know tiptoe around needles and broken bottles and and people shit. This might get worse because you covered with economy in collapsing as then answered. That's what was happening to cover to New York, because these guys standing on a call panhandling, there's no one. There was no one to get money from the media. You know what the panel the streets were completely empty. Broadway down town. You can shoot a cannon to it, not a car Martin. Women, in the comic mark Nominal amount, colorist guy filmed the bunch of shit with him just running around New York City with empty streets. Nobody around weird Wall Street is empty. All these places tat a pact or empty though the edge and with the cops I don't know, I mean I just wanna also bizarre, and I think so many people are either going to resign from the force, but definitely not join the four
there's a lot of guys. It are thinking about a tough job, man for very little pay and put your life at stake and just public opinion. Other forces down so low I don't get it listen. I know. If, God forbid, I had trouble I call cop cop I'm broke out his well. I play a cop now been our blue blood for five years. I play the programme up. You play cup, you just replanted, detect faded homicide, We went from wiseguy. Detectives is a fine line there. Finally, but but I agree and no, My daughter had just come back and is it really depressing men you ever been now I've been in California since March. First, I was in New York before that and so young it couldn't go back really
but I live here and there both place yeah. There was a little easier here up in Santa Barbara area. I love it up their lot easier to be called until now, the outside and backyard and stuff. I e the beach. It's like Santa Barbara is the perfect size, but I I mean I was They are too weak. They shouted down much thirteenth with two and a half episodes forego. We just got shut down, and then and then you can't even go out of the house two days later I mean I was unaware of any thing. I mean the train to pack. I was taken to train and shit, and I went to a concert a few days before. Why had the Beacon Dave, Matthews Janshah brothers? because it, but nobody said anything in our action. Brown got sick, the aim, I hope I may be attacked our. Maybe
but then it was just that I was here for two months. It was gloom and I'm in a building. You gotta watch the elevated fat man. The thing you know or food in was crape, makes me crazy. Wipe off the packets, don't wipe off the package. Wig loves, not wear gloves what the fuck do. You know it's a. Very confusing. Nobody knows what the fuck is going on. So podcast was a good thing to do. In the midst of all this, I figured out a way to do it at home, so we didn't have to be in a studio, set up a little studio in house, no figured out a way to do it. Was in new york- and I was in California and we that's how we started yeah can be done in all its and there's so many people listening to shit now thing is consumer and consumers are up and in terms of legal watch, viewers of shows listeners upon cast its all up because
These people are just sitting around doing nothing for months at a time when it was kind of particularly good time and for us, because this sopranos is being binge watched in by people in quarantine. Rediscovering young people would never seen it. It was out. I think was HBO number two series, It includes all their new stuff like game, thrones, everything in surprise. I think Wes World Sopranos were their biggest shows during quarantine, shows been off the ever thirteen Well, listen is one of the best fuckin shows of all time, Really, as you know, you guys were on without a doubt, when the histories written is one of the best shows ever No, no! You know what's wrong aging, neither one of us watched in twenty years- What show I mean I watched at one time when it came out years ago and we ready to get where we kind of depressed and we're gonna fuckin about a tv show now because the world was coming to an end, especially at the beginning in me, and
We had got and offered shit and and Jeff helped us. We were given Jeff like Contra is this: a good deal existed the finally settling enough. I can help it. We could tell, but just my manager such a system, and so he helped us but we ve doing the re, which is obviously bittersweet because of Jim in your watch in Germany's young, and then I came on the second season. The second episode, but the show holds up every fuckin like you shot. Yesterday, besides the following the computers, everything else is like it was done yesterday at this not dated at all the show, and we were I'm gonna, let we were gonna wait. All things got back to normal, so we could be in a studio like this and be face to face, but we got so much communication from fair.
And I got social media saying hey. We heard you doing the pike as whereas it would binge watching the show and quarantine, like tons of you, know, tons of that. So, a way to do it. So you know we, we watch the episode. We were up to episode twelve now, in our time you tube and whether you took part and then we were under the episode. He wrote five of them, so he knows every every. He knows a lot more than me. I watch warlike her ready, viewer. We tell stories behind the scenes shed stuff that went on stuff. We remember we ve had guess we get eighty Falco next week we ve had the casting people we ve had the terrain round, but either way. You know, however, made the show of success, so costume design. What's a great thing to do, to go back on review it just a kind of give the people that are fans, this the sense of what it was like for you guys and what it's like to see it again and in just to put it in the car
text in history when that's the show that started off these costs. Of shows, when you think about the show that you have They like the ozarks in all these different. Like really kind of wild shows. We have to follow one episode to the next and you have to know what just happened, debate and new up. So soprano started that shit. That was and it was also the first showed where there was a real anti here and it was so bringing a cinematic quality television. People would traditionally go to the movies, for we have in a novel listing quality, laying a sense better because you could do it over. The course of many hours, weren't limited by an hour and a half to our timeframe. You could do it over the course of multiple hours, right and he wasn't the andalusian. He was overweight. Balding guy, you wasn t a typical leading man lay with sexy. Just like tat, I loved, I told you we used to say tv doesn't put,
What was he used to say all the time they used to say tv puts ten pounds or on you. I say it takes fifty pounds off yet before there was something about his character mean. First of all, it was a phenomenal actor. Like always always was many was fuckin insane in everyday eat. A true romance mean egg. Just go back to his whole history, his career, but that show doing toying soprano just fuck instinct whenever one, as the look those more once when the actor in the roll really come here in a grey role really come together because they don't always sit on always. He was fucking perfect for that
and you know you see, em like these scenes and now I look at it kind of differently, obviously than back, then you know packed it, I'm just trying to get Falcon killed. Yet now you you're, watching too and in in one scene right is some incredible scenes way. He's happy mad furious in in one three minute seen. He goes to four different emotions again he's amazing, and if you remember that, When I first got the job I had to go, I got the job. I got this shit, I got the job. I had to go to a read through and I happened to see you, I think you're working in Vegas at the roof and I said, Joe what I asked you in another comment. I think bill cacambo. I said what what goes on and we took us even though I had were no right- and I said the do it like a hundred percent-
and you told me like eighty five. Ninety percent, like don't go all in. You actually told me no additional red for the audition for the really through a wreath of mediating around the table. I did it quite know you go all you know, fuckin shot at all you just where the lines which some people do just flat, which is terrible. That's not the answer. These people that actually give fire turnover- right right after we throw this. Actually you know that right, so flat, I didn't know I didn't. I ought to know neither. They should know that you have a viable show that you can get fired after. We, too, I would have been shit. My parents. I was so naive that I didn't realize what that's interesting thing. When I tell people that I knew you from the rhythm and their good, what do you do there? I will use the town court now shut the fuck up a go. Yet I worked form. I got book bites
you sure about at the river years, when the first time ever worked in Vegas, I do had gotten so gigs through do carry you done, the drew carriage show, carry, show Bruce, found Helpmate Kevin Pollack. Those guys should the beginning actually drew values. The first acting you did first acting I did was Bruce Foam on the golf course. We did a thing dead, Lenny Clock, I play the prison God what in a special yeah, I got you member Friday, night comics. Nevertheless, VOX here they were like little sketches. Five minutes sketches and we had Lenny Clock Vienna. We had, he was in the chair, Jesse from England and ignore Lhasa honours and had even had. I pull the switch I swear to you. I look right until the camera right into the fucking
no, what I was doing TAT was the second thing I did. They give a pilot put me in his special. I played his bodyguard. And then drew and little shit little shit Did you start as an actor comedian? Commanded, the media? I only active for a little while just did news radio. Do you like it. I like stand a better yeah. The acting problem is actors. You have I would add that as a problem with acting ever you answered even its is dead. You know some of them are great the news? Radio great it great? It wasn't the problem. The problem was when I'd run and other actors you meet them. There's justice, this boundary of bulls you have to go through to get to the actual person absolute, whereas comics are right. There they're right, therefore, email comecon. The Rohingya comic got. No, no. I mean my cable to fuck. You don't work for this guy back. I have he's right there, the right there you meet him instantly to. I find the opposite, really how so the actors I fun like what you're saying
a comics, I finally by actors, and I find the opposite about comedian. You know it. Maybe that is its that because that's where you are I'm here, I think no hours Michael saying that just to be counter now known their island, we really mean yeah, but also the difference in New York actors and allay actors. That is true, that's a big difference in these tv actors and this there's something about that they can almost fuckin taste it. It's like the actors and aren't quite there, yet that you can they can almost tasty. They're kind of workin but they're not secure gotta, get now additions, and maybe they my book something, but maybe they won't. Do you remember when we are additions, We are this sugar, you Firstly, however, the issue of air we. Shouted out here. To talk to you from the river. Is it really
artists to David Chase Brown on us. As far as I know, you got the soprano. I was like holy shit and it was for me it was a thing that I would tell people cyclists and there are certain things that a person could just do. You can just go on stage and you stand up and say to law. He catches learn guitar, but some people can fuck and act and you were really good. Not in theatre, though, and film and television is different theatre. God you can't. Just? U can get somebody who's never acted, and if you're good director. Something get him a firmer kara make them feel comfortable, give themselves to do, but you can't put them on a stage as possible renown prescribed to insist, you know rise, so stand a crowd you're on sage. You have to face it. You know you there's no second take. After you have to create these moments, wrote for two hours straight and sustain its not just getting a couple along right about the Euro. This act is like you
it just learn, stand up. It's a very underrated art form. Ok, absolutely tell you to do it. Do you buy yourself you're out things? This act is like five: what's his fuckin name, given their low fat Jeremy Pivot he's a stand of conduct that now that happen see you stay very good or the acting. As stated in our stand up. I have not seen it. He bodies basically doing is what he can do. I mean, I think, because all that shit that happened with him again to move survival, it's nothing else. It can do but buddy I'm I mean I've seen comic Susan. I was around comic from nineteen eighty six. I started to review its very difficult. It skies years in using using years to find their voice. There were them even if a comic, if you dont, like their material. Not every comic for every guy. You know the guy's, a pearl he's really good its objective
don't make me laugh at this. Guy thinks hilarious, but you know what a guy just don't have guys guys you know and There's a lot. These numerous factors that Oh you moorish whatever they are, that started doing stand up what output nor the work yeah. I think what happens is the income opportunities smaller gash, oh and then they look at stand up, and then someone says listen. We can is scheduled tour for you. You know do this size, I laid them doing it. Yeah I've just say it. I mean it's a different thing. I don't blame them, but it's a different. I listen to He's good, though, prevent provides us Williams, I sat there, I find that very surprised. Acts already was good at it. I stood they expect that they expect that I'm not to be good. You fuck fuck point We need a new. I think you got the wrong way,
in addition for the same role, but it was the Bob Simons Movie but movies I didn't get defiling set in doing the own movies have ever Kevin James Moose. Really here we always issue Pee Wee Herman came out. It was yes, we audition. They. Ve Sheridan were years is You go away back I was on the sopranos already, but probably early, two thousands. We were there Dave? Shall I know what you're talking about eight was a star has read it now when we was right, I did that fuckin move forgot. I did everything I say to you: who's this fuckin guy you said I didn't. I think he overheard us he was to start or the movie. What movie I forget them, but he's a good guy. They ve very good very frequently, I very funny, but I didn't you know who's. Who's there is a comic actor yeah now
and a funny guy and poor, Vince came out and he said it's a great room guys and we would just sit. There was an interesting take because that guy was he was a young guy and he had never been to starve movie before and they are making this movie and because they they know they put money into this. The executives were given a malign readings. There was a guy who was wearing cuff links, expensive watch and this really nice tailored to and he would say he was telling them out to be fun. That was lab. Silence was probably the producer out an old because I worked. I did a movie with him. Ceasefire run and this,
was after that? That's what did IRAN your line? Ratings are the ass. There was just being I'm fuckin guy with money lucky it gets back to our institutions. Do that, while I bet you know, I wanted to do the movie where it was, it was happy to be the star the movie, and just Look it member when they gave Dominic along reading phlegm Dominic some most com, Dominic Kin, Aisy played uncle german car guy just sweetheart, and somebody even line readings and he lived I was. I was in the car, wherein the chemical and I was driving on the New Jersey, Turnpike dinner. They will tell on the carpet and other the grammar reserve. I was stock. I couldn't get out in the directive came over and dominant goods gone down. Tell me how to do it. Just tell what you want at this. The nicest man, the story right and he was gone TAT, we are doing just tell me, you. What is the thing about actors with learn reading, because then you
yet we you now you not discovering it you're, not you're, not creating the moment. You just imitating It's not organic and it's not may not be as interesting is what you're gonna come up with is an act, but it does require. It doesn't bother me some allotted directors, don't know how to deal with actor. So they think that that's helpful, but it's actually the opposite. It's not helpful because when like when they give you a line reading, they would actually say the line the way they are. Sometimes they will. I get over that those about Mihail, nay. I live much. I've gone off under the other cities. She went on cars, which I find very difficult. I find one hour dramas. I I I like that so much more sitcoms, a different rhythm, a different beat, I dont, think, are very good at it and have done quite a bit of Ah, you know the guy's. Given me a no to giving I'd. Just tell me tell me what you want me. How do you say tat we ve got to say where Africa don't? You
cause. You say I'm not getting what you want. I want to make the direct happy. I want to do a good job. Tell me it doesn't bother me that much I have had direct. Is I did a movie with a young kid. It was a really good role, a younger kid. After every take, he came over the top three. Finally, I went like see me. Fuckin do my thing I'll figure it out just here. They. I appreciative of the fact that you ve gotta, think about what you're doing and if their yapping you, then you think about them. This whole process, although you freak out, though Michael yeah, because as an actor, you have to playing the scene reality the scene whatever it is, this guy saying something it appears as you off so right. That's what you're trying to create an eternal do. Someone tells you say the lion like this. Will then I'm not in the moment, I'm not dealing with this. I'm just thinking about imitating this douche bag, who just told me to say something:
certainly you know what I mean. I had a direct who said to me, make a comical face and I said, I don't know what that means. You want me to be happy. You want me to be ecstatic over the top really excited make of honey face and then I said I don't know what that means, and more cartoonish, and then he said a I I'm not really good at I swear to God. He said I'm not really good at giving deregulated. That's your job! That's The title of the job is direction you do feel like as an actor. So it's a strange thing to do because you creating something, but it's also this collaborative effort you working with the other actors. We are also working with the director. You there's the script that you're supposed to be fun. Following, and maybe this some changes, the script and this summer going on to try to create
your version of it that the more that people are fucking with you, the more that's going to just throw you off the rail it does and I've. What I found is the best people, the best director. That's actors and writers make it so you feel very comfortable and that you are free to create and that you're not being dominated a dictated to and stuff like like, for instance, the best example is Martin Weir saves you. I only worked with once in a movie I felt like I can do no wrong. He creates an environment where you feel completely creative and free and that there are those better than him in a dozen about. I would imagine that. That's that's a real skilled. You hope to be able to look at it from the the artist perspective from the the actors perspective and just wanted just to figure out how to be the least annoying the more supportive just sort of convey what you're trying to do in the one hundred percent. I mean both ways. You know as an the two you gotta learn. You know you look
And how to deal with different types of directors and give the give them what they want and give and satisfy itself same time when you not his skill when you're learning it's hard to do that, I got fired from my very first professional job. I was twenty one. I had been studying for a long time of auditioning never got anything. I get a play and was a leading to play off Broadway, but it got a lot of attend think as it was based on a true story and I got fired after the opening weekend because I didn't respected director. I thought I didn't think he knew what he was doing and I didn't know how to give him what he needed and still do my own thing. I wasn't skilled enough yet so they fire me it was devastating, but you know a lot about a lot of like I work were Clint Eastwood a few times and it's what the casting he's were lying on. You that's why he cast use a lot of a lot of that letter. Directors, even big ones, then, would even give any direction.
Hi loves you. Ok, you didn't hear absolutely you did you thing and now, get away. You know what I said it's a lot way like. He believes it's a lot with the casting Michael directed me in a movie that he wrote it couldn't have been better come on. What is called the Hungry goes very low, Indy, very indy movie. We did in the Europe two thousand and eight and Steve was one of the law and it was. It was great, I mean you know, was now yoke and was that what was about You know five people, not all fuckin lost their life is laughed. I played a guy, that was a radio late night radio stat, that's cool guy and drown. You could be a great radio dj with their voice problem, what his kids, but it was
When we were Hirsch, that is at the time he had a theatre. We were hearst because we didn't have a lot of money time that we were heard we got on street, we did it. Michael was terrific, he knows what he wants. I mean that that's the biggest mistake it directly can make if their hesitant, you know, they got to know what they want before they come over and talk to you knew you know what I mean is a guy Heaven in horror, in Genoa, Psych what the fuck but talk about line. Reading there was an actor Broadway guy that did Sopranos a small role and I was able to see me in an uncle Junior and this guy and they were actually given online. We She was a Broadway actor and he wasn't getting it and they wind up dubbing his voice. They This vote has even yes, I forget the guy's name. When we get to the episode our day. That's insane
yeah, but you know what else happened on the show. Numerous times like I did, I did a scene with the wrapper fabulous. He was great. There was a scene where I shot the guy in the ash and off he remembered. Aren't I I'm supposed to shoot him in the eye cause I'm a marksman and I get money for a moment. I shoot him in the S by mistake, but I shudder would fabulous and then, a few weeks later they said, listen, you gotta, be shooting seen so right away. I go out, I fucked up. No, they change fabulous to treat each naughty by nature, the good guy they they and he looked to young, they just replace them. They just they had the the budget and the time and they just I brought it another actor and they would we write scenes if they
like the sheen after they sure they would rewrite it in and numerous times they brought. Another act is due to different FBI agents Fruit of book she at the end of episode season, three something she never came back. Not only did they, they took her off the dvd So unless you taped it, you know like if you take the ballot every shouter scenes. They re shadow seizing further dvd searching unless she has a vhf of its subway she's not existed. That's crazy disease are really good. Actual, though I was probably wasn't anything to do with that it was, they did make a deal Maybe she was busy making a movie. I'm not saying he's got a huge mouth. She was miles. She is huge, serious water boy. What yeah that's right, attributes great in that
I just wanted that my family one would does were devastated home for the covert thing we're moving I'd every night we were Adam Sandler binge funny. He watched everything, underrated, fucking, funny movie, that's fine. Moreover, the waiting seeing as those all land is wholly Larry Honey. That's great move right, only tease with Hamas, let it is an exciting and land every leaf, honeymoon, very naughty and movie at me with a finnish nick. It's very fine, oh yeah next is also by love me. Who is the complex that inspire due to be committed? our prior first, my parents took me, see, live in the sunset trip in the movie theater when I was like fifteen years. Brilliant beyond that. I met him. You did I work with them and work within five weeks in a relaxed
while towards the end of his life, it was. It was very odd for me, because that was the one that was what really got me interested and stand up, because in that movie it are thinking. I'd never really seen stand before, and I don't think it may. I'd seen around that tonight show or something like tat, but I'd never really seen that and in this movie theater here I am crying laughing at the scarlet was just talking and I'm sorry. I can't believe these just talking, because every mode of, if I'd seen a funny movie was funny, but it was never that funny. I'm abuse at some something about Mary. We ve just seen something about Mary we're talking and you go it's like a comic killing I'll. Never forget! You said that there are so funny was like a comic kill. I was the feeling that I got watching priors like. I can't believe how funny this guy is just talking. I got in there. I didn't know you to do that. Give. You worked at the comedy, store, Quinlan the comedy store towards the end of his life, where he was really sick
and these two have to crank the volume of the mind from one like really loud, you would get onstage and he was on all kinds: medication cause. You know he was sick and he had to sit down. You couldn't literally couldn't stand up these care. To a stage, so they introduce them and they walk him through the crowd, and I have worked with him for five weeks ago. I was on after him. Every night we're going night was prior than me too. Missy Shore who, on the common store when she had a young, comic that she liked she would shove you after anybody was any good xo model, I was on. I was only after a rich pie was on I have to tell you about adhesion. Did your dish for the improv in comedies nodding out, you didn't have to audition for the improv, the audition, the improv. You know you just if your tv credit stuff like that they give you spent hours later on when I first got tell I now, when I first got out here, I had a tv shows on. I was on a show called her
by trying to try. What might I saw my exactly my star sat automatic and that I can old, and then I got on news radio right afterwards. So the whole time, I was onset, come and so the end product you just get spots, but I wanted to be at the store. The store was a car that legitimacy that movie some kind, a hero with richer prior, yes, and he plays like event. I think it's about Vietnam. There are some. Nothing, I'm kind of a drama, the aid to drum and he's he's great. He was a great actor. Ah, he was great everything. It is great and that was that move that they did about his life story where you show Joe Joe Rights. I was really good. I was basically rough. That's good he's the goat. My opinion either Lenny Bruce you started all off and then Kennison? It was probably the funding of all time for like two years for burnt out, but then priors, the guy. You know when you look at like the guy who change. Combat he made comedy a personal thing he made
somebody like an honest personal thing. He was a partial and you think me I use he took what Lenny, Bruce was doing any just. Did it a little bit better? You know Lenny Bruce open the door that Lenny Bruce was the guy who got arrested for it. Lenny Bruce was the guy who really changed perceptions in the you know. What in the fifties and sixties what doing was revolutionary. There was no one knows doing anything, pushing them all those boundary get. Everyone else was telling jokes like to Jews, walk no bar, they buy it, but I'm pumped show that was what day all shared each other's jokes. Yet catch go comic, exactly it's all of it we're all that was, but he was pointing out a policy in society. A little things and came about language, yes, language areas really started out as impression. Yes, Ghana yeah. He he just decide
I did to expand the medium and then he got more more famous from doing that, and then it more became social commentary that was actually funny rather than just what we had thought of as a standard comedian before that, and then, of course, Carlin took it from there and then think prior did it better than anybody He really open a door for so many other Khamenei, and then he made it person yeah yeah, you, like almost confessed, general any aspect and vulnerable and vulnerable accurate. I was right that yeah yeah we're in everything he did. It mean he was fun. They destroyed glowing who stay just destroyed. The law suits in the law should shut the end, that's what he was. Actually, we will have to pay anything problems that were drawn up admittedly, but they dish destroyed Ahmad TAT. I made everyday day by arresting them for cursing anxious about that now here yet
Have you seen marvellous, MRS Maes, all the aims- and yours is really good? Yes, please let it worse, this guy he's really who is it now the answers: nice he's really dream of honor, but the that the way they portray him is very close to how he really was yeah and then he was very loved by people who had come to see him and then the council blurry drag Hamas age. What do you think of her stand up well in the big I think it was pretty good it will. It seemed like a funny broad whose current drunk, who went on stage was hilarious and and and got laughs it just hard to recreate stand up. If you dont do stand here, that's very, are that's what I was talking about as a community barriers, I'll, marry, be very good, looks like yeah. He's where he was also on the deuce. He played a goodwill on a deuce
on each video on it that one thing about Missus Rachel. Everything is she's like on all the time that's the one thing: it's like always a funny you never so now I mean it's a good show, but it's always like a funny quip. Every day he asked she wants. Coffee is a funny job that that strike convict. That's always on its annoying. It gets I got to the third season, the third season. It seem like that it was a little manufactured like there's a big scene which he's in front. You are so tore yet overseas. These geyser laugh and she just murder and laugh and everything and psycho as a comic, unlike this, is not just as a real. This isn't real. This is like a confusing we're guys kicking guys through windows. You know it's like there's something about work. I can't can relate to this anymore. If you ve taken this into fiction, but I think the beginning, it was really good job
Have you ever just aided onstage? oh yeah. I don't mean to begin. I eat shit yeah, of course. Will this is one thing. I write a new act every two years, so I do Netflix special or communism special draw lots of out and start all over again, and you can have some rough sets shit and you know maybe of hackers, Mather Heckler shit- you ever go to Heckler dinners sheriff peddler line. I mean you can do that, but really it's all in what's happening in the moment there so different. You know that it's like do have a go to space for your food. It really depends on what you William you'd. Do. It's really is they were also works. For me, no achievements. The lady was Sakhalin already sizzled lady. There
you should open about this to switch sticks, remember the comical Rick rattles, no request Those who was hot stuff here, one man show he was the beginning of that played the improv, so I can go on in the nineties. Any add this figure, the name of it. Maybe I don't know what to do with Rick Randalls, you San Francisco guy and he wanted it yeah. They were the added development deal. And I d give a shit come for a short time and he added act and the act was kind of like an hour, you kind of came off studious guy, then he would say would you sleep with me for a dollar eight only tell a girl, I, and I am about to find out that, of course, for a million dollars
You got me in cause. She says it. You're a euro, so tat say, tells the he does the joke. He gets off stage. A guy boyfriend comes back and policies of in the back of the head right, it Riviere right and then two nights later, a guy's haeckel in him a tells a guy. If you know shut up, I'm gonna leave sweaty tells a guy, that's how we dealt with adequate and if I could get your black linen, he walked up to stage and I was fucking. Stop. It seems a very odd approach tie and I swear I'm basically given up all your power yeah. That's that's pretty wiser around anymore. Yet put EU strategy he and the nine these he had this one Mitchell may be late. Eighties development deal big management in our demand that guy
here. He had a show called defending the cave man. Oh yeah, echo yeah. I never saw it, but a love of a lot of people did see it and they told we, then he did it for a while and then he sold the show and someone else was doing numerous people. He didn't It shows a guy did for years. I think the guy the foxes named the ball, who's in the thing he was on. The shield o Michael Checklist, checklists yeah needed either. Why, while yes, one manto yeah The image of women and men went a broadway. He made a fortune. It was basically, though, like stock premises. Of sad and see. That's what has explained me. Someone said this is the craziest thing I've ever seen. Well, I bought it became ass, making millions all over the world have all over the world and its basically, like you know, standard premises. Man alive
there's by women, better thought out like real standard shit. If you saw road act doing you would go out the skies kind of a hack Then, meanwhile, disguise doing it as a one. Man show and it's a theatrical production. So its huge, I don't know, that's an accurate assessment would have explained, but I hired so he was kind of a Europe that fact for Canada can all chunky can guide the other guys that filled in we're all That is why it is so that they will not act and wasn't escaping good. Looking guy they all. I cannot imagine Dama rarity the legacy of some guy playing to the gallery did with it twin brother then showed the brother, maybe not as twin, but it's his brother. They look, alas, a goose Gallagher too, and then after a while, he got tired of Galileo to do in his act like hey, giving my fuckin act back for you, they are fighting. I never knew that gas galley
storing and do just like Gallagher. You re, like Clone Gallagher with some went wrong and the process accept Muslims. Rightly off like give you know you are married to him and you came home one day. You like hey, are you what's going on here? Billy, you know my husband, it is happening around to add- is that this should be done away with all over the country will set about headline everywhere. There is Galileo, which ones which I don't know, which ones which I had to say on the right. I think that's on the right is too so a guy and a right how to grow as Falcon hair the same way and where the same clothes and what was the aims. One better than the other. With about this year. Have you had Gallagher? I know I he's heard a monster. Before, though, is an interesting God the opinion in he, but I gotta go to products that another level did well him him between character. I say just here
rule he'd animals. He ruined the John Prop Comics Putty defined it to the point where no one else can be approved. Comic anymore, when I was starting out in eighty eight, there was prop comics. There was all these I still some guys that our views, some guys props there was some guys have had a puppet. You know that, since the puppet was a normal thing, but there's no fuckin prop comics. Public guy, he's all affair, Yeas Fame Republic guy used or from yet there did. You ever have ATO and Georgian sure he's the best, who's. I guess it was what's your name dirty as puppet guy Papa, all affair. Yeas, Fame Republic, I used to work from ETA. Did you ever have ATO and Georgian sure he's the best? He was there For me, a lot better. We should show you did it already show it was the extreme kommeni assets sexually.
The guy's not effect. I was talking to Dick. The parlor Nicht hid it in Algeria is there's our own journeys, ATO and George, so crazy. It's so funny. Someone actually round stage at the danger fails in stab the car, the puppet at their so so horrified. Look us carry the crazy I've. The eyebrows, and then he would. You would one actually round stage at the danger fails in stab the car. The puppet show that there are so many of them are so horrified. Look how scary crazy eyebrows he would. You would fucking the eyebrows would go up when he was hit lines when George. You think that the puppet today would be Otto, but that's just Papa is George. What Otto he worked for me a bunch of times and he had problems any would disappear,
I find that. Maybe it's obviously has problem asylum in committee but he did let him in. Started. Finally, after so many years get some recognition. I wish he was around now, so we could introduce him to pod gas. Think think if he was around now. In fact, if I were you get a minor pod gas and show people with much like Joe ideas. Much like allow these guys you there, you're not going to understand who they are through a traditional format like a regular television format. You getting get a shadow, of what they really are. You gotta see like out. A wild guy? Who did these crazy, fucking the crane crazy wrote shows we did. We need those Bob Gonzo, gigs together Jersey and we did. We did Dangerfield for those that we did, we did prom shows prom shows or the Fuckin worse thing Comic could ever do is what they do. Is they take these seventeen
nineteen year old, kids there that I like the one you want to one. They don't change the eyes. So the audience they just keep shovin new kids in there and hope the other kids lip leave. Rather so you'll stop work- and you might have a seven o clock show and you don't get there too, like two three in the morning, sometimes you get out. There is just starting to turn the daylight and they're just pumping kissing, so they would tell you don't major act, we want them different body or act, so they leave. We get new. Kid was at that austrian guy Tony was the big guy. There was the Scottish. Good God is yeah fuck? What was his name, not TAT, God wasn't told only was rotten these partner. He was funnier than most of the Canadians that the big scottish power left a guy. He would, he would lift waits with, they would take cement buckets like up a bucket and fill it with cement, and he would do a lot of his work out. Just lifting these buckets filled with cement one.
Strong is fucking. I've ever seen in my life, he was like building up bowling ball with a head on top of it. He was a manager. Now he was a good doorman, Slash Maitre D, Slash bouncer of any I didn't think wrong. He was the guy that came in a pity. I saw pick a kid up by his neck literally grab. Him by his neck and the lift him up in the air and the kids feet were dangling these yeah Dangerfield. I went there many years ago in the seventies, and I saw David for I refer. You still do Nixon. It was five It's very any would do fog inexpedient, like Caesar's palace, real, look up David and he why the moving to vegas- and he was solving all the time in and he did Nixon He was great, Really short, I end here
always lonely, and it was what Randy Critical in a way. I'm really credit goes in. Oppression is secure. Them wait, rent the guy with Roger Stone, really used to work for me at the river, he was a comedian stand up impression. Is he did Johnny Carson I saw my cause. There's David fry these five for three: they go over there down in times square its form the morning for thirty in the morning is hooker on the corner. They pull up. They said how much for a blow job to girls. Looking in she took it in the car. How much fuck you she went, I don't fuck midgets. Was a loss for the ninety percent of the price. For two fuckin months Dave he was there now he worked the river when we first so well
first open right. He worked like has become back ass. You live in a vague as fees to come around the club, and he did. The first show wore a tuxedo. And between shows you got bomb than a body, but framework should go and get up. We gave him a chance and he just couldn't even work poor guy and he passed away a few years ago. He was headlights, Jesus Palace, real comic, one, a very depressing Mary. Oh he was so. Life is hard life. His life there's a lot of those stereotype comics and you hear about them more back the day, the now that we're never happy, though they were gone staged. They would get laughs new crown than they be depressed for us a night in that that kind of bottom up comic me: there was a lot more work than I think I don't know he and I were now yeah catch goals, night clubs in New York, Chicago.
We are now I mean there. Is our tv pay? more money than eating get scale. I think if you did variety show, then you got real money. You know like flow, well to shower sunny ensure Amazon COM, a car. I think there was a flip Wilson, Oh yeah, I was home all my life Wilson Sage shall I remember those Those variety shows in the in the seven. These gas goods then happened. A variety shows people like them anymore. Another short attention span I guess that's the new american Idol and the voice in shit- that's soil. But The variety shows would have like legitimate famous acts. Come on their side. You're here saying his car. Mixed the guy with the plates, which initially every issue that we do things.
Traffic was Joe Road, that's what you gonna do jack. That's right! That's the next thing I can do that. I do enough. This is that its care be ashore attention spare, because if that was the case than podcast woodwork, cause podcast require the most attention span. Now, do you do you? That's the one thing without parquet issue, a lot of younger people discover this problem, and that was potter. We should we want to do when these kids that are in there lay teens early twenties yeah. You know like it. At age and there the pocket yeah neighbour to young will show was on originally, but that that's pretty. Has found a lotta shows don't get that kind of resurgence in new generation discovering So beautiful thing about our era that you can stream shows and Benjamin do that with back in our day.
Look. If you wanted to watch all the episodes of fuckin stars, kihachi, good luck, weighing line them, wait, we're going to find dragnet yet to wait for it to be on television. If you want to watch an older show you how to wait for it or you ll, find it somewhere. Now someone tells you bother sopranos. Is it networks. Now it's it's beyond matter. It's really earlier. Hbo Hulu Probably I apple tv, so right, biodiversity, Amazon, Amazon. So but yes, go right to that boom yet started. I mean and instantly starts plant. I mean it's. It's amazing. If you're, a kidney wanted discover, great old, shows or great old films, Armenia of Internet, since you have to go on you absolutely in Baghdad, only eleven million people had HBO yeah, which is nothing there's. Probably more people now watch people get together on Sunday night. They have their parties and they would cook at parties and dress up like the character.
It's just. It was harder to watch things. You had to go out and get a physical verge of physical cop Remember I moved into this house in two thousand and two and it had a theater like. If I was like. Oh my god, I made it. I got a fucking theater in my house. This is the shit and I watched apocalypse now part the the the newly rematch Ray mastered version of apocalypse now, along with the added scenes and transplantation of ours, really cool, just sit sit back wash singleness, amazing that the internet in you find out the history, the film and then find out that, like literally took like seven years to make that clear, Lawrence FISH Birds, a teenager when he's in it it's just What movie that is yeah, that's a good look at his career, actually Harvey! I tell was originally the. Martin General Willard, and shot for a while and got fired. I think they felt he
too much like marching was more of a blank slate like an every mankind of Harvey a very strong like personality like New York of Guy and a lot more of a corks two year and more. He wanted more of like Martin. She was more like reacting to all the other craziness around, unlike Hopper, Frederick Forests, forest rise, Berne and Brando, and he was kind of the centre that just held it and Harvey was more like a carrot, That makes sense then, as he says, I heard, but they should work Harvey shot from at least a month, maybe more. While that makes sense, though, because Harvey such a powerful force. Yet when I think are, we can tell, I think, a bad loser. Yeah one fuckin movie, brilliant shit. I did a series put em. What did you do? I did a serious is the only serious he ever did call life on Mars. We do one season for ABC and in two thousand nine an army was played. The lieutenant played lieutenant in that, and it was his first tv show
yeah I worked with me forward among cockers, adds us couple scenes with him in that, and then we did. I love our hurries very hard worker takes his were org really really seriously and really good. I mean bad lieutenant he's incredible, brilliant. I think that might be his best work ever an and dangerous game degeneracy that the same director able Ferrara its with Madonna James Russo Harvey basically plays a version of able for our and kind of aversion of himself and he's really plays a film directors really good. None of us all to go. Look at those, that's a good one What did you think of the stand up? Show Showtime, which one was icon. Women was appear here, you don't like it. Those flat alike Why is it wasn't my good friends we're sure like that, and I liked it because it was basically based on the store.
But was it an comedian Jim care? Yes, he was before he started to act like that. Right No, I didn't even get into our lives, which I know what it. How did they have our act like a possible? now he was crazy. I met her a few times. She was nice to me because she came out with poorly poorly worked. All tell I met a couple times. She was always very nice, that's her or was it she was always. Very, very nicely butter. Will she crazy, oh yeah, yeah? That's why she let the store become one it is she basically wanted the lunatics run the asylum she wanted them to fight against each other. She also knowledge is, if you and Michael had a problem with each other. She put yon back to back of Michael bringing up yeah, if you're dating of Comic was daily, another common she'd have them back to back if they, if they broke up, I was all this was all orchestrated well. She had a theory about comedy she wanted people to be put in the difficult situations outside tone.
You, when I was twenty seven, and in our just sort of gettin my feet under me. He had me going after richer prior every Fuckin nine marked Lawrence. She liked you should She throw you to the wolves and shield to laugh about a two. Like later on in life. You know I had a conversation, then she was languages. I always knew where a point you should do was funny but that was. It was also how she made you a good comic sheep achieve forced you to adapt to the moment. If you just go on, if you have- easy opening active does get. Some last doesn't killed too, and near you go on as cushy spot in the middle everything, soft and easy. You don't get challenge, you don't grow and she wanted you to grow. She wanted you to. Each one of you to face hardships. You want you to fuckin sink or swim bitch, this the common, storm. That's how she treated it. You know, but to store, which was the mecca of course, and then they entail.
For a little bit and then, when you and Joey Diaz and all you guys, gonna come back now, it's just yeah. You know before the pandemic, anyway, that's the spot in the United States. When I came back into thousand fourteen. We had already been talking about it for so long on the pike ass. It had kind of had a little bit of a ramp up before then, but definite came back and were basically tone there, but I am at the store where there were there five nights a week just became obsolete. I mean it was mobbed every fuckin night it was sold out Hundreds of days in a row three shows one in a million the original room, big show in the main room belly room just patches every night you can't get in there had the you know they were at the dunes. They were, for the emperor and there was a five headliners. You know they were, I liked it can achieve Mitchell Walter, you know, and they they were to do so. Tell the big roman niche
Mickey firewall that so she made all the money. He was very small, obviously a small business one year. Sheeting go for this. You know guaranteed money. She took a shot, and for years that was the spot to be. When that please go under those before my time and then I must say in the ninety nine these take. They knocked a doomed out what I think started in eighty four, the improv opened and eighty six and they five outline headlines, Johnny Dark! You know all you know all the headline is from the comedy, so Jimmy Walker- well, Vegas is making to come back when it comes to comedy this class clubs is caught. Jimmy camels a club there now and then there's a comedy seller laughing factory Garrett. The broad Gara places great. It's like it's a good place for car, not just for people that are doing big places, but for comic comics, guys road geyser. Just
hey you you and you did, data show you saw her, which little yeah, we all went the cat was shoot played in the left actors at the Tropic cannot yet dice does residencies there. I killed there for months at a time at the left. I was just here. I was just there in Vegas for the: u have see two weeks ago and in other duty of sea without a crowd. Very strange were the APEC centre, which is its it's an arena. The Yossi built somewhere its next to the you see Performance Institute, it's off the strip and they just they built this. Small arena so that they do it's a series of other shows. Besides just the big you pay see paper views. They do this thing called Dana White, Tuesday night Contender Series where they have like up in common comics or fighters, rather a becoming fighters,
PETE and then they doing the small place, with a very small crowd and two thousand and twelve other people, but now there's no one, no crowd, because it's the only way. I could do the thing so as I'm driving to the the apex center I'm passing Tropicana and they ve got dice up on the billboard four February, so it's like, Past shows March shit like that, and I will take it down. They haven't because everything has been shut down. And all the casinos been shut down now, the now their opening it ass. They do have a hotel stay, and now I didn't even I flew in the day of the fights I flew out that night yesterday. What's a soccer get adjourn the german league and they had knows fans, but they had recording of the fans, which is when you know they sing the fans in Europe saying chance would seem they had that going on, but there's nobody in Europe. Do that, visas, raids. Now it's is silent, Nova. Nowhere according
now two years and a brilliant part about it. Being silent is that you can hear the people breathing. You can hear them talking shit to each other, a k, pussy, hey pussy. I feel it they they talk shit to each other when it beaten each other up. You can hear the body blows here, the wheezing getting her. You can them heavy breathing when their tired. I get this. Much more depth to it when you don't have an audience this. This undeniable that the audience plays a big factor in the energy, but there's something to just being there, like. I was therefore tony Fergus, Just engaging in Florida we did that Jacksonville and those same thing, no audience that was even weirder, because it was fifteen thousand signorina, but there was no crowd. There was just these guys do, get it out in this cavernous arena and the octagon set up in this. Enter the arena, and, oh years the coroner man given advice, and then you you,
hear them beaten shit out of me, do you have to adjust anything? You do different? No, you just show you I didn't know not in a just you know. The only difference is the one in Vegas they wouldn't. Let me in a view, the fighters in the ring after the fight, so I couldn't go into the octagon after the fight I had to do it remotely, so I had a headset on I'm looking at them through a screen. It was real weird that will end. Do you think you have she that's why boxing's not populating boxing pretty popular as now as it wants was. I think Emma is much more exciting, but I think the real big boxing fights are still very exciting. Like Thyssen Fury, the Anti wilder that kind of fight like this does are still very exciting aids. I'm can allow, whereas fights those still very exciting fights it's just it's it's not as multi dimensional,
as Emma may, when you watch you have sea fight, and you know you see in head, kicks and take downs and got around amen. Forget tough at stuff also boxing's donor to Strasbourg. I wasn't his excite even before him and make got popular, but like had a heavyweight division which used to be so for years so excited, You know my comes in waves in an anti while there was just starting to become. The resurgence of the heavyweight divisions, zoo smashing, not nobody out, and then they have that epic fight with him and Tyson Fury and they knocked Tyson fury down twice and almost knocked him out in the 12th round and Tyson came back and then round and then the fight was the clue. Draw. A thousand was that it was a great fight and then tasted very came back and beat the fuck out of him in the rematch and when that happened ever does like cheese.
Christ. Now american heavyweights, like that, was a big american heavyweight loss right and in America there's something about. We don't give a fuck about heavyweights from other countries like one Vladimir Klich. Co, like you, would think like the whole thing was like a white guy as a heavyweight champion would be the crazy should have. We propose that every champion for years nobody gave a fuck, that's an obsession with Russian. You know in the end. The Eu Sugar alot of fight on I love the figures in the eighties hours at their herds. Haggle was at me and see anyone who killed do cook him, how you and I would add that I was outside fire. Yes, I was at her entire driver said that acone homes, hundred feet. Guy Tipp me, I was a doormat Nepal, like his club about God, gave hundred ticket ticket. I was all the way to me, TAT Jesus in the parking lot arena. I was that
O Koyo prior a let us agree on prior. I was hesitations verge fight when he came out of jail to shit. Yeah bunch of them a butcher. They, Saturday. Afternoons at two shobo are the outside a town, I've gotta lotta rose with gray fight the India. Now they had Wednesday night fighter It was a silver slipper winner mirages: I used to go back to. I have a veto. If I use these have a lot to fight the Orleans tour only later on yelling later on, but they did supper. Was this shithole local? Is this a lot of those vegas and local place and they would have these gray fighters David come in? For my lay in top rank was big deal then, and Arabs than allowing you know forever Ali
came to the set one dance sopranos visited. He was a fan of the show and he he his manager contacted my manager, and I met him in front of the studio and bra M onto the sat- and nobody knew is common in Ghana Fini was, I can bed, he was doing when he was in the coma role that stuff they was like taking a nap between, takes and are brought Ali in the whole crew dislike froze, and I brought him up to the bad night TAT Jim Jim turnaround with w holy shit hung out the whole day. Men took pictures. Every crew people game was standing of eight people crying. It was crazy, he was,
just star in such an iconic figure that my parents who were hippies they didn't give a fuck about fighting, but when he fought Spinks in the rematch they made us watch it. We're living in San Francisco. Mc have twice as much nominally slightingly answer thinks he's. Gonna he's cannot get his title back like it was a big deal because he wasn't just a boxer, a guitar for people to realise- now in retrospect, but when I was a kid during the Vietnam WAR, he was also a symbol of the resistance to this unjust war that we didn't want to be a part of a guy lost three years of his career because he wouldn't fight in the war, and so they stripped him of his title in his prime, like he beat Cleveland, big TAT Williams, throw the finest performance of his young career and then for three years he doesn't do shit until he comes back and you know it was it was a it would. He was more, he transcended sports I'll, actual all over the world all over the world, and he got.
Stu! I think, though I mean he's, he's reckon I suggest that guy here now finally happened. It took a while, but who do the other? You go I must underline the set the hostile. Bed? That's crazy, I don't care break up some bullshit here that get right. That's good! Jamie gets right on your ass. If I could come up with a good, he is also a cautionary tale for four boxers. She think that again, hidden ahead has no consequences. When you know towards the end of his life is very hard. Why sure yeah? He wasn't talking not much, but he was very present. My game was, he was with it. Just wasn't get her mirror. Neurologically was incapable of like really speaking in London, Leon Spanks, also everyone, Joe Frazier, towards the end of his grave yeah horrible towards a watch,
listen to him. Only one is avoided. Those George Farm Ormond to this day, George Foreman, speaks great. He sounds normal, which is crucial, it's all right of holy, feel wholly fields, fighting again to know that, yes, we feel been training and he actually looks great. You know with hormone replacement therapy is juice, a up with testosterone, growth, hormone and fucking, get him on a good day next thing, you know he's hit in the bag and looking great and I think, to trying to set up Thyssen wholly feel remit like how old is ugly to field only feels old, enticing, I think Thyssen's. Fifty three anything wholly fields. Fifty six that would be shouted dialogue, a huge pay, they cause I'd, they call you fail was brought to their boat broke, yeah I mean Antonov Thyssen's president, shall yes and wholly feel both gossip and other matters
he's got that Tyson Ranch or is he's basically weed salesman out and Scott Disick Crazy Ranch and he's a part of Tyson rant. They grow spectacular, weed that box over in the corner that gold box at to Tyson Weed Ranch boxing gifted me and he's got this entertainment, venue, they're they're, going do shows there. I just think something happened. And he just decided he'd. Instead on the potty cuz, I don't even want to work out. There's like cuz. I don't want to reignite my ego and then then fuck and lit a fire under omen. Next thing, you know: there's these videos that got resurfaced of him here, the paths and looks fucking for have you seen it? I did. Yes, I would hate. It's amazing and I ll tell you what now that would be you in view of the world the haggard take my money. Take my money would be the do it like Saudi Arabia they now, if they do, one of those in that oh yeah for sure, wish Thyssen's, rancher
it's in its in California, like towards the palm desert. Around pussy lived a vague issue. A lot of you stupid basketball. There was a place, he's no more basketball player of embassy, a terrible. You never seen me play came over here, I you supplied, there's a place called the sporting house behind the Stardust and like everyone Lay there a celebrity that was like in a pool of Vienna, Racquetball all that shit and he would come into play. I would never fuckin dare say a war torn he's trying to play at length laid against him. Yeah yeah I planet
in college, and we were all the guys from you would play I play like was like a hundred pounds. I could play. Thyssen was just that's not his thick and now what I just is found it really amazing. Then he decided to fifty three. He just wanted to fight again and he said he's gonna do some exhibitions and there was a thought process behind some five round. Emissions or something like that, but the symbol. You really wants to fight law. I think, as the process has gone on, he's gotten better and better but now he shredded look, look cheese and he's got a podcast yeah yeah he's really he's a real. Interesting guy and he did a one. Man show YAP, it did as one, and show for likely direct. This guy who's holding the paths form is Hotmail Court I feel Cordero is the lead trainer kings in May he's a very famous. Emma TRAIN like one of the best striking trainers, and yet so he's he's working on a great guy,
but it's interestingly chose to work with an ever make. I too, that's that's really interesting. Cordero comes from this place in clarity, but Brazil called should the box it's a very famous, I may camp famous for the most ferocious fighters in Brazil and he's he's been training with Thyssen. How how long did torment five till he was by came back at thirty six. Nobody thought it was a joke. It came back three hundred something pounds. Fat is and just look like evidence like what is he doing? Why are you doing this and then slowly as the fights went on, we never got ripped but smaller and smaller nobody Flatland Jerry Clooney, everybody was I've holy fuck. This he's real This is real. Nobody knocked out Michael bore. He became the oldest ever heavyweight champion and I believe, use forty five when it when you knocked out more and then ease- Had his girls ass, he made a lot of money, made a fact entailing girls, those joint rules, a great for the Roma Chicken, great cooks, quick,
Have you really at an avalanche there right? It's actually pretty goddamn good idea, that's very funny! I'm is not the best way. We want to cook the most delicious foods on the banana. You cook yeah, oh yeah, Ebay, what you in top chef chopped, poverty tournament, so you're shaft chef? Now this is like a home chef, but I'm good at taking. What's there and making some out of it random stuff. What do you want to go? You liked cook hike italian food. I like you know I mean out here. You know you go to the farmers. Markets is a great stuff. That's in season all the time, and I don't know soup really yeah whatever's. I in I did it because my wife doesn't cookies. You know she's a designer she's gonna build anything. So I, if I wanted to out, I had to learn
cookies she's, the sun, learned out a necessity and then really got into it. Yeah not what I mean I got into a cause. I you know I liked feedin. Might you know I like eating good? So, but I did this. I got offered to be on the show whenever I didn't even know the show. My kids like no you'd go and do this you'll win. If you do the shoulders, you you're good at like cooking with random ingredients, and it was some. Sixteen people like one day, was actors for actors for comedians for athletes and for like musicians than the winner from each day does the last day and how they judge. Based on today's presentation, yeah three three professionals judge taste, presentation, creativity, and why did I year used ice cream? I made a desert. You have to make this three rounds every day. Right so is around it main course and then a dessert.
But for the dessert I made ice cream and I put a boom in the ice cream and that got over really good. I've been there and I ve been ice cream bird, Vanilla Merv in nice to key the ice cream, sunlight that, but they give you weird shit like in one you open this box in these ingredients you have to use, then you have a pantry with all the other like normal staples of all kinds of other vegetables like we're, would be in the box, fake blood like candy blood or like unpack, an unpopular dry corn on the com on popped in like thank it's like popcorn, but not off the calm squid there was idle that that's kind of more of a normal thing. You have to have pretty well rounded skills, yeah and then its timed, but then the heart. The thing I didn't think about that's the harvesting of it. As that, there's cameras in you
face the whole time. Wouldn't you really are and then, if they folly around, also that outward move around the kitchen yeah you turning really fast and do so in someone's right here with a camera right that kind of thing. What would it what the fuck do you do with and popcorn walk? I knew what to do with it, which was good you in a paper bag and then put it in the microwave and you could do stuff with it, but I had I had bought it at the farmers market like the week before, just by chance y know what to do the job and for her and your country a family when fifty thousand for charity, that that was the thing, but I when, in the till the last two people me and brandy chest, you know she was on the: U S, women, soccer team, not the recent one, but back then she took off her shirt was where in the sports bra, that was a famous photo or something that was her, and I were the do that after the show that some will be lost maybe you if you want my covered. Second,
now you don't do that when you coming in the first place, I did it your balls, so someone In doing so, we will need, when you get all these ingredients like? What? What? What are you thought process like we're? Gonna? Do you get the squid and the popcorn? So you you how much time you getting by the way for Think for the opportunity of fifteen minutes. Fifty minutes ago above the box, you have fifty men make something makes it look at this, When you look at the popcorn what fuck and you have may and then there's there's all different machines to there's like a food processor, this an ice cream machine, there's like a sous vide machine, which is you put stuff in the in the in the plastic seal and then put it into like really hot water to cook it that kind of shit. If you want to get
adventure seer. Why you wanna, try one German, no not for you ve known urged, and what do you make? Usually I could. Let me in our hunt saw a lot of help me cause. I should now I get four hundred pounds meat. I wonder what is in our case like like snake? No, no, it's more like venison legged, dear meat, but more delicious as it does. Is it the dear family? And yes, it is your family system, a large dear, essentially a large mountain dear used to be a planes and Then, when people started coming around and development, they start moving into the mountains. So now that there are more of a mountain animal, but there the real habitat, is I grazing and planes, but it's an enormous animal
so that of okay to a lot of that that you get a lot of year last you a year, but I give a lot of it away to. I have a bunch of commercial freezers in the back and Elk on the wall I shot. I was big there, so big animal mean mean that's probably nine hundred pound animal that one that's a really big one had some of em. You know a good sized Utah MT knelt, eight hundred pounds. So you quarter it up. He take the family like suddenly they love it. I got good at it, not a cook yeah, that's a specific style, cooking too cuz, you got to make sure you don't overcook it, because it's very lean. It's not like, like a fatty piece of me, where you know you could kind of cook it longer, you cook it a low heat and you get it to a very specific internal temperature. Usually I like, like two hundred and twenty five degrees, and I see red on the outside a very hot cast iron PAN
because I don't cook much no now and I don't need anything unless it I e, not much or sometimes I could die could do so that I can make breakfast like What would you go back and eggs I could? I could do something If you have a merciless cook short order. You are clam shock, You told me that embargoes claim ass when I was in high school did open, clams You know when you would honour. I used to be incredible: avert claim houses where they killed. You gaol, ah why they had a shock at one in Brooklyn, where I grew up and noble Gallo is killed a mob mobile. Mama there was one above or St Bernard's can I have become famous after that, and then there was one in Brooklyn and I was like fifteen and I wish to hang around the corner and they were building it and there was, I
A guy you know that we all hanging around getting into fuckin trouble bunch of kids and he pulled out a big water money. One day I mean like fuckin hundreds any sitka me. Can I get the fuck out. Take them to the movies. Then a movie was probably a dollar should not on. I want a job. I don't want your money and I gave them he was Matty the horse, which was a big wiseguys brother, Joe and he kind of became like a mentor, and he was like a really good guy gave me a job. I'd, learn how to open, clams, baked clams claims for the lithuanian clams rural claims. Have for you now filled squeezed alarm in the day
did being around a lot of those guys when you're younger than that help you, when you're in the sopranos that it helped you like sort of cuz. You knew people like that. I grew up in that neighborhood like where I grew up in Bensonhurst Brooklyn. At the time in the 70s was all a big mob and Clav big. They were everywhere, and you didn't even know they were. You know like Joey's uncle, and this is gonna. But the little league with wind of dawn only five years for murder and they would just in the neighborhood they would just you know so yeah. I I knew that world I wasn't in the world. I went to college I been out, but I knew that world. I know people I have friends, you know able just a kind of a place in a way just knew them, and somebody was just telling me two days ago

And I had no idea about that and now should really he lived up to block for me. I didn't cause, you know you're a kid. You know there was I you know it was coaching the baseball team than you found out late. I said I didn't know, the guy was wise guy like a real guy and they were everywhere. They sold fireworks, and I was told thing is all italian American. You know and its change now you know it's. It's now a little bit of that, but not as much as it used for when he was in his heyday. It was a very strange time for a katana in Americans in New York because did that whole area look when he would have those block parties- and you know, people that was part of the the people that would love to him. You love that
to this day. To this day absolutely you know I was gone. I left for Vegas in seventy nine eighty, so I was gone through all the main regional. I was in Vegas what those wise guy- and I knew none of them. We talked about it last time. I was here the ass she character. Tony larger, who was always very nice. To me, I mean, We are turning our time I saw it is our right of my book, but its into directive the gaudy character him as a purse, was very you know his grandson is a bad ass, Emma may fighter and I'd miss ran son, John Daddy. The third I think it is, is a legit Emma may find it he's really fuckin good. He shredded you kid look. Fuckin killer me looks like an fighter, coveted tattoos. I think he's undefeated and I think he's got the majority of the sites, if not all of them. Former benaco strata grace the russian people, love em. I never met Jangada. He did a lot of good for a lot of people. I
only judge, someone by how they treat you right now to make us people Why do you know blubber a? He was good to a lot of people, but it was known to be a good fighter. To John John. Was he kept? That's how he kind of came up. He was very good with his hands. He was you, know, Toto and and was pretty nifty as a fighter. He was very pub yeah. That was the thing that the late hour down he came, but he was flashy when he became the bosses. Like this guy, like made a big show of who we was verses, allow these guys, like Vincent the chair, and would act crazy, walk round a bathroom gaudy ones like Al Capone. Only she enjoyed himself. These other guys enjoyed of job seekers out the restaurants. Movie star, looks at least enjoying himself? He had a nice family. Some of these guys are hauled up. They have mill. Dollars. They live, unlike some shit, one bedroom tenement
I saw her junior. I gotta lives like this should be light. If he's scared, hundreds of thousands here and there and say why, live like that. You might as well go out and enjoy had run yeah and they still get caught. Even the even a guy like shit. They still get caught those old timers out. Those all time is used to just I don't know what they did. What tomorrow while they were trying to avoid prosecution but didn't work out almost every mobster, unfortunately, and wage up dead or in jail, yeah, yeah, Michael's, you grow up. Roma live it up a little. The term more? I got our out of that area when I was in my teens really and was in the city in the village and around actors and musicians and stuff that was at something that is always called you.
No, not really. I was going to go into the doktor sunlight in Wales really didn't school, and but my father was a bus driver in the Bronx in this and he started doing community theatre one. When I was in high school, where he was. I forty just almost one: they start acting in place which looking back knowing what it takes is very courageous. You know somebody to do that, and so I always saw cool movies and even saw some theatre in New York. Has my parents took me but then, my last year of high school, I was like what the hell. What do you really want to? Do I mean, if you can do anything? I really literally asked myself that question. You could do anything.
It being those like I can, and I really want to stay in school for ten years either Laden studying I was kind of sick of that then come on debt, come on debt and address the Bay One. That's a big one, flavors the way they lived the life. They live their life starting out of the gate in their career, hundreds of thousands of dollars and that yeah, I'm not just doctors here, even even people who don't even gotta grad school shore goes well. That's really so you ask yourself that question and you come up with acting yeah. I started we. I had some good teachers in high school who, like brought us to the theater and and and those reading, a lotta plays in high school library at my school. Just got into a more more my last year to a high school. I was an acting. I didn't do any acting them and
and after his then went to enacting school in New York and took a couple classes therein and stayed for for a long time. Actually, with the cup of a teacher, I met a lot of people that I still work with today. Back then, in my view, a couple of war on the sopranos is live performance. Is that your love like theatre? You know it is I mean I love all of it. I mean it's always about the specific project in the material and the people you wish, but doing alive is really special, becomes a you're doing the whole story every night from beginning to end dry and you have the european stage or whatever to ours. It's that concentration in that committee then movies, and television, as you know, is broken up into little bits throughout the day and and it's a different kind of concentration. But there is something special about being in front of an audience as different every night. The reaction
different every night and as it interplay that's very exciting, so do still Do it now? Do you go back and forth and one slash two in in a while I mean theater, I mean I did. I hope to start doing it again soon. You know at one point my wife and I built a theater and we were. We were producing Nupe would you build. It was twenty nine stream in Hawaii around ethically open in two thousand three we say built zero like what was therefore I was just like a raw space. I think it was an eye when it was a club one and then literally my wife and my father built it and it looked like a theatre from from like a hundred years ago, was beautiful. How did you get the crass Francesca like what where'd you get the people to do their work? my wife and my father law. We did all this. I did a lot means there were a couple of people over their contracts, sort things out for, but a lot he was he password. They use a master carpenter, users, brilliant and my wife really good. How many seals was it
seventy five seats, why that's? When we did only new plays that had never been done and we so had classes there? I think what you was us between two thousand three and like to task. Ten. So this is a real labour of love. Is yes it means a lot of money off a seventy, not wait and make money now it costs actually want to cause him and that's why, when our business, big after the economy collapse, we lost a lot of funding. Are we lost all the corporate funding? Pretty much? We had a few private, you know donors who really loved were doing, and I mean I built a theatre. Basically, I did it a movie kind of, and not so that movie for have you for sixteen actually hawaiian, that money went and build the theatre. Why is that? had to be a really interesting thing like that moment you're on stage that on this theatre, that you built NEA and near your performing. These plays me, let's
had to be a dream realise how a pretty special moment. I didn't act that much there I did more directing I mean we produced all the players. I did I directed a bunch of them. I think I'd. I only acted on one of them, but- but it was kind of the inmates run in the asylum related. Was it wasn't really a many, but it was accompanied by default. Gives you a lot of people at a go to people that I you know worked with, but it was yeah was really reward of my wife built all sat sprawled shows as well as built the place itself, so intimate seventy five, really intimate, really intimate. That's a wild decision to make to build. You think it was her idea. I wouldn't have done it probably gonna. As I have done. I worked in theatre,
I started producing too damn early 20s. You know where the company in and I knew what it you know it's hard. It's it's not a good business model, but if it's you have the kind of passion and we just found a way to do what she's like no we'll build it was like, but it was really fun while it lasted He wanted me to do apply never offered, may apply, that's enough for me now. I don't know why I did one night only which their eyes and Dolls Carnegie Hall Quencheth Tony winners. Me, but listen. If you gonna do a fuckin play dies and dolls guy. And ass. I was so scared. I thought I was so fuck it Joe I would have for Jack, and I swear to God. You know by anyone called I showed you.
I don't need the lane and all Patrick Wilson, Megan, Malawi, all these great people and me I went okay, Jack, O Brien, one of the biggest Broadway directives, and I went ok to charity fur for economies Why do you wish to add that? So you know nine days her. So I never been so scared of my life. I tried to get out of it. I said to my agent: me others have upset, there's no one I did it and it was the best thing. When I was done. We are dress rehearsal in the afternoon and then at night it was packed. Nine. Nine data. Shall I took to trade up to forty second street nor Herschel Space every day, and we know what you did a whole play outlay and they memorized all the lines, and I mean all the fun I came off book is that,
unusual, that's ass! We would do us thirty days. That's for a drama into No, that's not with you, as we know, musical Siena time about adding very agrafena that stuff, but usually heat thirty days for weeks, an orchestra. It was fantastic amid the night. I was so scared. I didn't tell anyone, except for my wife and kids, they are, the only ones. There came a fourth, I gave them a visit. Afterwards was sky high took me a few days. Come now because I'm scared, but then it was so great a naked waiting. There's nobody funny. The Nathan now did you You want to do it again, as such. I don't know, I don't know. If I get out, I don't know It was the right material. Maybe I don't know now is our own. That's a rushed performance rushed getting ready long had only familiarity, I mean if you were, and there was another that ended pressure, because you know, if you do in the past,
you got a right. If I fuck up Tuesday, I come back Wednesday. This war, As you all know, this is all a method if I fucked up and there was produces the guy from catch the big producer, what to say the creative Andrew Lloyd, well, yeah. He was there. There was all these people and act as if I tell you fuck up now. I went to a lot of five bloom. I lied. I was so scared like so blow your line. You know on tv and film fact anybody can go back and this was it yeah. That's twenty five hundred people- I'm shit in my pants seriously want. Most scare things ever did you were to have a lot of nerve when you start and sent up? Oh yeah, yeah yeah, it's scary here
when you start- and I came from fighting- I wanted from fires in fighting. I have three kickboxing fights while I was doing stand up and I think my first stand up what was was more nerve racking than fighting for whatever reason non tariff. Yeah. I mean it's this also like what about unable in it now now now this fund meta, probably nervous for me. At the end of the month, seventeen stand about three months, for, I am doing the Houston Improv just to fuck around and knocked the dust off, I'm sure before glanced Asia. First time, like wholly flocked, even remember how to do It has been so long. You know. I've never had us a stretch of my career three months with no stand and have taken three weeks off before felt weird, to dig in three months off and be very strange. Do combined like set immature with improvisation angel and yeah reforms?
yeah. You do like there's always something going on the audience or there's always something that happens that day or something is going on in the news you can talk about in the moment, but you have to have some Louise. I do. I have to have some structures basic. I have places where I know I want to get too and then you know the rest of it. It's gotta be in them. We eat out you're, so you have to be there You can't just be like reading the lines in like rigid with your script, because in the audience is failing to have fun, didn't feel like it's fun that you you're, you're you're orchestrating dance. It's not just here put on, stand up routine you're. Also your orchestrating their evening, you're havin, fun. Psych has a lot to the art form that it's hard to. It would be hard to explain to a computer in other domain is like there's a rhythm that you there's. A thing is happening with the audience and he got now that makes sense
just as simple as like. If there was a huge storm that day and everyone went through it together and you are showing up exactly like that affects exactly referred aware and then his chaos in the crowd enough seem right, brawls in the crowd, all kinds of creating I was now every now you're, so well known, so today the laugh when they give you a break for like thirty seconds the beginning, you got about thirty they're like you're here Steve around it delivers a function. We came out of my house, you gotta babysit, were so excited you there and then thirty seconds later it where's the fucking jumped Man It is terrible and then than the mad at you and then it's worse. I've seen that happen with comics of the store where, like a famous guy, will go on stage. Really do stand up, does Danube every now and then, and that is the worst fuckin place to do that, cause you're on a line up with murderers. You know it is: bill BAR and Crystal Leon, Joe ideas in our Madge Wally's, all these killers and then some jack off from a sick
I will try to jump on stage and do fifteen minutes just in the beginning. Oh, my god. It's that drive from that child and then thirty seconds later they want to cut your flag. That's not a good idea of its data through the ship calmly away or have you gonna do stand up. You know you got a treat it like you're about to go. Do a fight, like you, don't want to be in shape if you're going to fight. If you going to do stand up, you better be in shape for it, you better be prepared, you better have real material, that's tried and proven, or you know Whatever your written, you better go over that shit with a fine tooth com. You better be loose, you'd, better, be ready. You gotta be prepared start small married to go out of town. This model in my knights. Do some guess sets if you're you're a guy like, but there have been people that were famous first and then they became standards. I think Charlie Murphy's, probably best example that Charley was at his brother, was famous for that, and then did that pal show, which is arguably the great
sketch calmly, show of all time, and he had these, how various parts, but the guy had never done stand up, and so here is a huge fucking star already and then he's going on stage and these learning how to stand up in front of his body- and I think its incredibly. They almost impossible takes ball. It's almost like it's like Tom Hanks in punchline. Yes, Arriv acted like a stand up. He was in a great stand about, did a good job, the videos acting give you see them alone good movie Sally, feel tarmac They acted as a stand up there. You could tallies not to stand up here. You see it and like it's like when someone's plan a fighter in a movie or is a lot of other they play things missing is now I can't even fuckin throat was like you, a basketball. You see this guy can't play exact this there's things that you can see like people to smoke cigarettes, to tell me that you can tell by aware guys holding a cigarette that has really smile, yellow. They hold
too high, and in this I could now you can always do we talk about that on the package AG away they hold. I could never. I don't smoke anymore, but I did. I can have never spoke to my life. Never a cigar. I could get away with rice. Ok. If I had a smoke say what I don't even know how I could never do it on a show. I think part of the problem, MR aware that they have a cigarette on them, whereas a person smoke cigarettes. You just like that cigarette and they know it. Cigarette in our hands, so it's a normal part of being who they are. Whereas if you don't you, like, I'm gonna Sagrada my hand, everything You don't like. There's a cigarette in my hand, most workers over now, so you can get. You can tell this guy's a smoker in Vienna. I'm sure guitar players feel like that. What you got planet guitar player in a movie and I don't know how to play guitar, so I can't get. I don't understand if you're doing it right or wrong, but I would imagine that would be a lot of stuff, but listen. I used to watch tv shows in Vegas.
Movies like from Vegas or tv shows and in the first who managing other stitches. This movie socks, I don't ever happen and a deal is rooting for you right now that this just like in New York, Woody Allen movie somebody else, I'm always like fantasy, the beautiful block with trees, and it's like a few from that place or your comment. You know immediately say that would never made I guess, a gangster movies. Do you see a lot of bad there's a lot of bad? What oh yeah then what's an example anonymously bad one Jesus. I don't even now there so many falcon bad ones where you go. This is ridiculous. This is just now I did. Wine kill the IRA. Meant what I didn't like. There's some really good actors in it. But this many things that are off. It was a period
stuff imo is I enjoyed that moving the funds I get a lot of people, I I didn't like it. I like it. The first cut I hated. I never went to a screening, I told my wife fuckin aided and they got better and, as usual people. Tat we shouted in Detroit was supposed to be in Cleveland now just a little shit. Maybe if you're just a viewer, you won't notice, but I did but There are so many bad bad. I heard the Travolta playing God. Was a bad one was hilarious. I was so bad, but I heard I didn't think Travolta was so bad. I thought a lot of the other things will bid and they were I think it was in the shouts of in Cincinnati.
So that means that a hedge, you know the right yet now, but this is a ton of people, love that genre people love the the mob, John like the western Sahara films, while the same security act as a pronounced, Sopranos fuckin emulate kick started that it really that that John or became far more popular they tried date. I think mobs Eddie was on a tv show, and you know this. In so many of them, and yet you know you got hit the nail on the head, the gangster can, guy you go this guy on the use of different stuff. You say this guy doesn't scare me for two seconds You know it's crazy for me was going back and watching the original episodes approaches were read like a comedy. Oh yeah very different, show very different, showing Falco has the the gun and she's outside
and who was in the back into window yeah, but I'm like this is like a comedy. It's like it was a different show like any Falco character, evolved and became this very calm. Ex woman who's battling with this reality that she's living with his guys fuckin murder, my boss and cheese, enjoying the perks of that it became like distant very interesting character, but at the beginning it wasn't like that at the beginning, the first episode was kind of funny Leah. When I first when I additions and read the script, I wasn't sure if it was a full on spoof for the mob. I'd really wasn't sure there was some. You know that was the murder scene at my character, does in those some dramatic services, lotta, humor and and it was around the time I think analyze this. So there was the mob spoof Adam. I wasn't
nor I didn't say that you know from just reading that pilot episode was hard to tell, but I really like the cast they were put together and that that was it. Never. They saw me on it lay I knew some of them like eating tongues Rico, and then he passed or I knew Jim's work, but I didn't know him personally had seen him in a play. Cells like this is a good castle there, but it was very hard to tell from that's from that pilot scripture. What happened that it evolved became borders. I think it was always that was always the plan. You know, like anything, you start to see what you have like. What are these actors bringing you know what are there playing to their strains and what kind of qualities they're bringing to it? yeah, just like there's that one scene in the pilot were at the end towards the other pine, like my character, tells Tony soprano. I can go to Hollywood and sell my story or something and he
the script it was kind of he was like fatherly like you. Don't want to do that and sell out you gotta stay with us in this. The family, whatever instead gymnast grabs me that all by the throat or sunlight, then it became very menacing and very intimidating and he released. You know- and I think David saw that was like oh wow, that's the guy, that's the character, man and it probably influenced how he took the story and how he would write it, but I think a lot think. A lot of that tone was already in his head, but seeing what the actors were bringing to it? I think you know influenced alot. Gaddafi was so fuckin believable. I mean you know this. When you re sitting about a guy who just embodied a role like when he where's tony soprano and he's not, and he wasn't like that. That's the other thing he was more like a hippie hear you very laid back. You know he warlike
can stocks and like a bandanna on his head and ease guy. Didn't really talk like that. He was. I wiped my ass with you music. I yet he was dying ever wanted to do a talk. Show you no joy, I would say, Why? Don't you everyone thinks she had tony soprano? Why don't you pick whether it be led a manner or whatever and show them the real Jim you very intelligent guy. I mean it's not that guy at all. That effect, he would say to me like before the season Let's go down I've dinner, ready or quota, which I read it to you. Now, let's go down tomorrow. The street I wanna start get back into the showing you things could say. Wasn't he don't hang out with those guys? He wasn't that it all, but he didn't you never did a talk, show we did sixty minutes. What do ya the talk, shows you shut online interesting, he wouldn't do in and he didn't go up around that he now Jersey went to Rutgers University. He was ill, must act.
You're gonna tell you what's funny, you know I I I rode kids book called Nicky do shit. It turned into a movie and Michael's ended in poorly Walmart in January, and I was in Jim's trailer and he added did the movie. You appeared paid a mob movie and he should have. He wants the calling wants me to let him- and I said I don't talk- shows in any case call in any says he got fuck a nasty with Jim initiatives it. I won't be tough, not everyone is fuckin caused me again. I will beat the forgotten him for the money baby pay me fuckin doing it. Again. This is all before the Harvey Wide Steamship when he was still the king shit. This is two thousand twelve. When you see Academy award speeds, thank you compilation or all the people go up all the various people that eventually talk shit about em, go up and
he's Harvey ones. Teen nine ever saw my God. It's so bizarre, it's so strange because they were intended. He had much power was careers and they didn't feel like their voice would be heard or that people would enow take them. There, is a need to find a way to to fuck you. Basically one of you are killing, was no. No me every three or four times like I want and told them, Madison Square Garden and there's a restaurant, Rebecca Grill, which he had all the piece of a one point and give you half ass hello. Maybe he was way above I was beneath. He never got punched in the face, though it is either
Jason priestly punched him in the face to face laud, yeah yeah. I heard that he got out of line and Jason priestly punched him enough. I think nobody beat the shit out. A hobby wants to animals, be that difficult, a fuckin Ali, breathe smoke and change. Smoking was on a tough guy was tough with assistance in a basis it like. When we have, you thought about a character in a film Harvey wines, dean almost two on the head, almost dumbly though, but I will do that- would never get away with it. So long don't do in twenty shot me is it our party read through the twenty some years and might be more? I they get well this lane or lazy others. We more cases is just what he's been convicted. For I mean he apparently was behaving like that. For decades, so let me nobody knew they knew they owned. That's, what's crate, It's worked into his fucking contract, his contract tat. If you get this amount, this amount of secular
per sexual harassment case. They had it that he would have to pay this much. It was to have to be that much if those three headed. Imagine if you sign up for a place like Steve I, your piece of shit, so there's won't going to work in the contracts. All your piece of shit behaviour, we're gonna, write it down and you can penalized per piece of shit in Asia, and that's why you know what other all complicit. This is then that I I don't understand these distance of a people in his office. People that new this stuff that saw the stuff that set em off that he me, the girl in the lobby, then she comes down. This is our Harvey needs to meet you up in his room. She was part of it or he or whatever the assistance where it was like I mean I would never do that dumb is also every ten. No, of course not, but you also you don't have to and when you think of an assistant input,
circular you thinkin about someone who has virtually no power and is a thing called diffusion of responsibility for this too many people involved. You don't feel like you're responsible, I feel like you, you know, that's what you want. I say it's easier to assault someone in front of a hundred people than it is. Did salt someone from one person has one person might step and stop it, but a hundred people we'll sit around or someone's gonna stop this, and that's that think that when you are insistent you're probably, but would you workin check to check you got this? Guy? Was the king, a Hollywood he's a fucking these worth hundreds billions of dollars intimidating. Yes in the sand, reef guide, yells and people yells, that's what he did what's amazing to me is people still haven't come forward, people that worked with him actors, whatever actresses I think they're still afraid somehow he's gonna come back like a horror. Films keeps people don't want to deal with that publicly. You know this. Yes, it's a hard thing.
Talk about right, unwanted, they don't want everybody. You know, I think you're right and I think all not only the union got all that he assaulted, just people that were around yet more aware. I don't know who that I just think they don't want to talk about a problem. I think you're right about that. I think its diversity is already been caught. It's over, the goddamn is in jail, had been jail forever, he's fucked up as bodies fallen apart can even war. I mean, is honest planet from what far from great space I shall therefore, in just a few years mean if you go back seven years ago, there's not a whisper. This right, So, seven years later, the guys in jail can't walk. Zenos is bodies fallen apart pathway, disk gotta to get somebody to give him the site night pill. Shouldn't rocket should now that you're looking to know where this was going when he was free I don't think he did know. I thought he was gonna get off and he was planning a comeback. You know he was, and I know I know one of his attorneys that was there
early on and he fired him and I ran into him right before you got sense a few weeks before, and I said fuck it Harvey's gonna get off any now. You see he won't get off here. If you want to kill me, If we would have kept me, I wanna got em off, you already have got them off. I didn't go away, and all I mean I know the guy quaintness from the nickname. And sure enough. He got why twenty three years, it seems, like things, happen in the quarter public opinion on guys like than most certainly did. I want to just there's no I would want to be what kind of life is he's such a character? I mean just with his disgusting face and his body in like everything about it. Yeah you had some feeling sure did a couple jobs and I did it. I wrote a script for him to work with a kind of closely. I did try to grab you now
What would you like to euro? He was ok with me. You know he had opinions. He was all right. I mean it was just work. There was enough Amene obvious, even gonna gentlewomen now, no, it was only in his office and stuff. I did and I did a job for his brother, another job, his brow. Big brother was a nice. Guy era is ok. I think he was very intimidated by our view. I think Harvey was bullied. Whisperer big time fascinating story, because it incredible and it's a wife the guy had a beautiful wife with your crazy insight, hundreds of other factors that even happened before and it's one of those things that, if its, if it's in a film is it's almost like he's too much of a village
that would never have details when you put it all together, like now really and olives, where his famous in dealing with the most famous people in the world right and everybody keeps her mouth shut and he fucks Alias stars and then put them in films. Do you think you think that some of the women that of denied having sex with him had sexual? Yes, yes, I wondered. I would have probably another victim law. I wouldn't talked about it. If I yet exactly, I don't know, what do you want to talk about that? That's hard, but very thing about heavyweight gene and people like that they would ahead if, if, if he would have shed listen, I'm a fat disgusting basket, but if your bag me I'll, put you in the next movie.
What line up there would be people lined up around the corner? I think that his party part of what he did now. I think I don't know if that's true from what I understand. I don't need urgent dozing division go, and I think that's too, like I was ashamed that, yes, yes, it's becomes a pathology, and I think this also think about power. You know it's a power thing. They too have power over people and all to have power over these beautiful actresses that everybody else was lusting over. You know you put some actress in affair when you know she's the centre of everyone's attention, she's gotta in our seas, dress on she walks into the room, and you know that the whole place lights up and she's Aachen Harvey's Dick. You know that is the path. Yes, it can sometimes of women in a time of women. I think it's an addiction thing to me ass, I think of you in others, there was a recording of this one girl idiot
ropes and then you know she wanted a movie role and its gravity is like to come back to my place. Cannot live just come up. I give you here in it like a guy asking for heroin me, I need, is almost sniffling again now. If we're lucky go from being really intimidating to almost begging like pit pity me, I ask you, please don't don't embarrassment, you know I was very weird yeah. I think it's it and addiction thing. I think there was so much going on with our guy Romania, too young daughters of Toronto, at the edge of the kids, younger kids S, wife, and they would just gone right. Unless he said, that's a rough. We just have gone away. I mean I don't know if they visited the whole de Jesus Christ, it's all crazy. It's it's! It's a Shakespeare, her store. Ethically, it is epic proportions. Horror story for everyone involved for hours casting couch in Hollywood, if you stop and think about it right, you ve got all these women they want.
Be in films. They want to be stars, then you get these guys that can actually help them make em stars, but they want something. And then you set up this dynamic that existed since the fuckin toys, Imagine what it was like back my guy! Well, you know the fatty are a story. You read the book. I fanny that Jerry Stall Road, no it's fantastic, began its kind. Almost like a fake memory written it from his point of view, it's brilliant. What is he was like he was the biggest star of his day. Yes, like world, not known all over the world, yet I mean he was basically like that he was a communist are a huge star and he did something with a war and we're stuck a bottle of wine that this goes into it. Apparently, this theories that he didn't really do that that it was set up. That guy was jealous of him like a studio guy yeah, goes to really good I was very stall road permanent midnight, you know. Oh ok, That's a great book is their real evidence.
The fact is that it is right. That was the end. Oh yeah done tossed done. The ivy the girl died, oh yeah, it's there's different theories that he was set up by somebody and that he will add that heat that all that was just the whole ship. Imagine that that's I guessed tat, the world is examined of Ladys were avi wine, steed off the street dishonestly, what he did when he D surrender actresses and women are since each S heart. I am not sure but he destroyed guys two directives and just a horrible human and Jesus. He was getting away with it for the longest time for the longest time, behaviour that was reinforced by the people around them, and then he got away with it. What's also interesting is like: if you help someone murder somebody, you would get an accessory, you you, you would get you'd get were present.
You would do would be charged, but there's no charges against any the people. It absolutely knew I was down for that site. I have two daughters, aiding and abetting that doesn't apply to that. I got two daughters in their twenties. I dont think my daughter's in a million years, no matter how much they wanted to be in the business, would be an accomplice to that and tell the girl and say well: Harvey's gonna be up in the room rife or whatever its gravity. Things go, get Harvey's medicine to Fuckin shit ensures that there is something I had come do nobody had. This is, I was gone. Others text thread with a bunch of comics. He had a type of gangrene that you get from diabetes, sectarianism dick and to his dick was horribly malformed. So I had this. We were talking about this. Then I googled it, and I said to my friends
not Google, this and then they like. Why not so send them a photo of harm of what it looks like. Oh my god, it's like you're you're genitals, right away like all skin around rotted away and there was one things are, one of the actresses it said is that she thought that he was maybe inertia, ex orient transgender that he had a vagina because he was so scarred up. So it's like it's it's again it's almost too on the head is like, as as a movie character, is almost to discuss them the issue playing him in this movie, a question who could put off Christian Bell:
they don't make them, because I don't want to see that life else lifetime gonna make the mover go it lifetime. Who had? I was going to say this woody there's, always talk about c gee I acting and that their going to be able to create, see gee. I care there's that act and films, and then I was saying, really boring. I think I agree with you, but I mean maybe you'd ever see. Gee, I Harvey Weinstein's. Just actually no one has to play in it's like no one wants to play Hitler. Now, it's like too much. You don't want to be the guy all that's that guy played Hitler. You know I mean it feels like hardly wines. Do you think they'll be a movie ethics? as to the ashes of the already know it hold it back would be Hollywood saying you know like this is probably not good for us here.
Its opening new opening only around her, and you would have to I mean if someone really wanted to thoroughly research. It like in really find out what actually happened. It would take a long tunnel does still girl today that world the book there's a book out there. I think they were right issued in New York Times nor the new Yorker. There is a good look out about to day, they really researched. Does it gone detail by both population of which actresses? Actually I didn't read it. I mean I don't know for sure, but I think at some point You know I do not want to make the Belushi movie years ago, member who did who play ball Michael Chick cycles. It was really once again, but that damn ok, defending the cave difference, if very, don't wait a bit, but I want to make that at the time that was a big thing
there is little drugs and in how they were trying to protect them. I guess, in Hollywood, kind of fair that news, Sholto he died. He was beloved was yes everywhere I certainly wired this whereas now that was rejected, well so young wow, they didn't want to make that movie and a lot of actors didn't want to be in it because of that region. Interest, I never saw the stated in writing damage curious. You remember, I was a long time. The big difference The cgi thing is weird right, like I think they're going to do that, I think they're going to have cgi movies, where the I think they're going to do it. Let me know that they tried to do it before with like that Tom Hanks, animated film. Remember that film,
the words like a Christmas movies on a fuckin train inanimate. Well, Jamie expert. Yes, sprang. They won't want, at least they won't want a big trailer. The producers, the produces a love, pursue love it will they love it because they can completely elicited. Is the articles yeah, fuck, whiny actor? Yeah? There is the polar expressive. It was very strange, but it wasn't realistic. It was is like it was that uncanny valley between you know, realistic, actual people and animation was of some strange so too, but you get the feeling that, as time goes on, I going to get better and better at this and then one day they're going to be able to nail it right, they'll get like Marlon to do stuff like that, like that, came to Coach Heller, how do stuff like that and that King call
Remember you're, not coming back he had a maternity gathered. So strange that should drive me crazy kind of obviously retired, dense green screens off, and I find it really boring and teach green screens no. I haven't done like that. Animated version thing, but green screens were well yeah giving your sensibilities of something came up like that feel like a Jurassic park, type move, your sunlight. That would even be interested. Now, I don't know depends where I'm out at the time. You know if I was broken Sometimes you have de facto those things in a corner in the most funding is one you, you know dealing with other actors and go on either.
Playing off each other to me at least not not everyone's, like that. A lot of people like do inaction and all that stuff on a really care for that stuff. So much and yeah I like more than in large part at a big stick with the actual work, and I don't like show business out of you. Do I don't I'd like the actual these days, like even our blue blood on working and I work a lot were bridge on an Donnie Wolberg that you go, and this is why I became an act in this regard that we, There's a lot of other materials really good. The scene goes. We when buying dont, like showbiz, when you mean that the whole shit agents manages opening night semi adds not for me. I went to the aim.
Four times to saying awards. I wanted to stick fuckin needles. In my eyes I mean it's just not me. I just I like real people. Most of my friends are friends that I've had my whole life. You know Michael's. One of my closest friends- but you know I mean I mean- I'm not a showbiz guy, this, some guys showbiz guys they love, love, go in and pitching I love it. I love this item. That that the whole world, the whole scene- I dont, know I like the work. That's it I was kind of in show business even at the Riviera, by default, Somalia. I went from about the book in action not dislike them. I just not a show, but it's a funny path as if Europe that your path as well
If I were strange, very dollar lying in italian forest camp at such a weird world, you you just saw stepped into a kind of yeah Listen. I've worked very hard and I looked at her work. I mean you know, but that port, I don't like it there's some people love it. They're will always air opening night Owen and premiers up there. If I put supporting someone a friend mine is shot. My that I dont go just to go on the red carpet, take pictures and de facto I care. I mean I don't that's not my thing yeah and I don't like it either. I don't think you like that kind of stuff
and I can do and what you do yeah. That's while I do in US incitants outside of it now. Looking at me, you know, like you, said that the work on a sopranos on other shows on movies. Commanded TAT was fucking great. I had a great day and night. You know that even if its high profile like we did the movie that was grey in every day was a great day, but not how do they are they resuming filmy now for things like this, the met the governor of when you said they think this week there allowing some productions to open up a New York, I'm here in MID August Navy early September. What's interesting is cause the protests, the covered cases of wrapped up, and no one saying that this alone, still. I gotta know nobody, aeroplanes, dominant thieving on tv. No one wants a blame it on the protests or connected in some way to the movement. Then you'll be labelled racist or something so that nothing,
How do anything so the people the where relying on for the news are playing dumb as to why hundreds a thousand, people marching together face to face screaming how that ramps. I guess we're gonna know about two or three weeks. We already know. We already know the mayor of New York, the plaza we owe a shed. The people either getting did whatever don't ask them if they were protests, yes, yeah, that's that's part of it, yeah that when they do and contact tracing day, they are not allowed to ask. If you are a part of protest, we're just hilarious. The world is upside down. I wanna how strange I want off this. If bounce back stop the worried about, you think he's back, but elbow things got everybody? Does it do we ever get to a place of logic? Do you ever get to? else place because it seems like this woke ideology. That's permeated politics. Now it's it went from
being a thing that only existed in universities to it was existing in like tech start ups and it was started to get into me He was working its way to journalism, and now it's fucking employee rights at all of these things have to go really far before they balance into society. Like a lot of the moon, the protest movement, which I find hopefuls all young people, yes very, diverse crowd, who were just saying we want. We don't want this right were aware inherited with racism and yet institutional, systemic racism itself, and that gives me hope the programmers Asia protests. You know when parkland happen, and there was this big movement. The young people who sang were scared to go
the school. We want something done that was you know these kids, who are saying hey. We want something different and as they get older, you know, I think it'll be integrated into society in ways that no work. I hope I have that you have to have hope. Otherwise this is too. You know. I have a lot of hope in the young generation over they do why'd. I have hope in humans, and I think that if you look at the history of you ones. If you go back two hundred years, the way people behaved and new compared to today, theirs of a vast improvement, almost every one hundred percent. I think this is a big. Blip on the radar. This is a big moment in time and I think we'll come out on the other end, a better at issues. But along the way, it's gonna be allotted. Devastation like the fucking, looting and the writing in this stupid shit with the blows yo not asking if people have been protesters to find out what effect this. This thing is had, were you
you do? Get people that are in the middle of a pandemic in you get him on top of each other's breathing each other's spit, and that's that's what's happening world is insane crazy man there's no way to go or, like you can't say: well, I'm just going to pack up in their way It's really crazy is it's all overseas to I've been weakened he's London riots. You haven't rise out in London so like and in France, like what the fuck happened Shit made it all the way across the ocean, it so strange. So how did you start fighting like? What are you writing for what Meanwhile, the approach outlined children's rights also Piranha, just you know- have conscience about this yet and one there there is there. Is he the extreme in people who were, some people who are not protest. Languages causing and in some way it's very its hopeful because it shows you that the United States
radically affects the world cultural and its true. When there is some thing is happening over here. The rest. The world sorted takes notice. The United States, like it or not, does take the lead cultural area say do I mean, and then with films, that's a huge part of in an age when he veto tee. I found to restart think I mean there's been some great films and movies and and television shows have come out of England in the UK and other parts of the world. But overwhelmingly the art form emanates from. Here we tell you, we take yeah and I'm a stand up. That's mean this is where it started. Stand up, started the United States and the difference between stand up here. The level stand appear versatile level everywhere else totally on comparable. Now have you done stand up in other countries, yet good yeah yeah? I get it meant for vows water and I still have.
Yeah yeah, yeah, don't stand up in Australia, love doing in Australia of don't stand up in England. Dunstan Northern Ireland also an end audiences. Where do you find the corner the great slaughter now attentive, very attentive, yellow, took my front Tony to Stockholm, Sweden, and he was like it goes too far by bombing another laughed, they just laugh and then they listen. It's different. You get a different vibe, they let you you just have to, and then the second show he goes I got it now goes just felt so different because just fell it there's. No, they didn't role with you. Go you also to remember
their second language. So when there listening to you there's you know they hate translated near laughing, but also cultural context is very differently. They get our culture, they get the context, but it's not as front centres. It is, if you're doing a show in Columbus. I or something like that. Wasn't it like in the ninth at it was in the nineties where comics we're gonna England. U S car! mix didn't like the audiences here, any more picks Hicks paying in which all the common serious event trailer, quests David. Something went to
straight area in England. I, yes, while their very Inga has fantastic audiences there and there really attentive there really really listen well and they do their stand a very differently than theirs. Their stand above there's like thematic, like they'll, do like they'll. Do they have a theme in all now? Carry that theme through their whole stand up for its very different, but you noticed Comical Ricky base is a great example have done very well he's gotta show. I never he's credit, release his fiery, assigning funding air and I loved when he was hosting a golden glow ass. It was yeah me just tell them shut the fuck up. There is so much virtue. This latest thing, while these actors have this black or white video locking about raisins and I take responds. Not you doing you don't. I was saying to my frantically noted as these motherfuckers:
got any attention exact four months, but the reverse, sharp and on what you talked about it, what the song Romagna ass to beginning ass. Yes, in more gas flow back would think about. From this to everything. May try to do that. Virtue. Signals like you know, we're gonna, take a stand, this no longer going to happen, it's not good like nobody thought it was good, This is not what this is. What this is a fuckin horrible cop is a really add guy who killed somebody? It's not like these actors are out there being racist and hold them. People baggage Is that what you're doing liquidity you're taking responsible now you're trying to get attention? That's what you're doing this stupid fuckin thing you're doing. I wish that they really do that again. Call. Me call me I'll. Tell you how it's going to turn out every one of these dumb things you got to do I'll, tell you I was going to come out if you going to have one. After and then the next you gonna cut to each one of em. I take responsibility, not you, don't you
captain James Succulent, unlike us, by mush, shut the fuck up and you're a week away from filming again, but that that's all that's all we ve talked about these people that do stuff enough the money or s and then there's some that the monies irrelevant. They need to be told how great they already had on the back ass. They that's what they need and some of them that are so wrapped up in this liberal and progressive ideology that they literally can't see how dumbness looks for the rest, the world they think they're gonna do a good thing and they think it through their celebrity them to use their platform and their voice now going to make a different view, really think that as a professional aren't you gonna make a fucking difference, with racism and climb and violence and police brutality, you should stop acting. Could you should go to a fuckin doctor,
Get your head. Try gruesome, along with a shut up and act, shut up at some point. We Europeans can express your opinion and people want it, but don't preach luxury, but that that video was little Raising money is in very you know, yeah. I got it from a by, don't even know what it means. The honest with remains. I want attention our attention and get ready to cringe. Gary clincher bought all show no. No. What do you do in Vienna was TAT was kind of do you guys know Cardona Guinness Carter, How do I know that is common hilarious comic? Who does allow these face, swap videos and he's a heap he be? Does Kalen Jenner, like fuckin? It's one of the it his instagram page is the funniest Fuckin Instagram page on the planet earth by far, but he's got this new one that he did where.
Go to a Jamie, go to Carl done. Yes, he is this where he has these characters that he does with the face, swap any shoves them into that video. So and I could lay. I'm includes wait. Wait till you see this is this. Is the perfect antidote for that cringe? Here we go Jamie. Will to this up here the guy is a goddamn Jean. I take responsibility- and I say again the juicy letters by Steve tears Passport, I'm on a French about take responsibility for every unchecked moment. For every time I go on the life and take responsibility for not listening to MEG in Ireland.
Leaving me knickers on the floor. The called under path I will no longer allow and unchecked will no longer throw away the african american part of the Ohio cookie just to get to the creamy wipe mill. I will hire more black hooker right, John, should not be a death sentence. Sleeping in your own home should not be a death sentence. Sorry, I guess We are no longer bystanders who the hell's that broad murders coms! Need me why jobs don't stop start solely on the perpetrators to start putting them in jail. Your web site that pays its a progressive peak that's good. That's good! There's, nothing! More burdensome,
was I gotta page of land that has seen the real one you saw. He does ones with the car to actions where he has Caitlin general talking with a card actions, but the card actions dont really talk to just me noises like me, Ye Mimi baby be written now, you're fuckin area does not want to shed like it's it's it's genius is genius This is what it is like everybody else. I like allows people internet video. Unfortunately, I think video. Unfortunately, I just think someone you should talk to them should some way outside the business just grab a share of the policies. We are not seeing people that feed back. That's what it is now they need feedback. Somebody's gram. Gold is to me, don't don't do this, don't do this? I don't do policies, but the problem is also the sun comes up to them and tell them. You won't take standing its racism and I know no, so you just wind up doing it, because you don't want anybody to think you're. Racist stages have on board.
They got. They did get big blow back, that song, the song, your blog, because that was ridiculous use, our smile and beautiful. Imagine there's no higher than big But what was that about? That was about the pandemic gas. But in the meantime, what is imagine have to do with dependent Zack song has nothing to do with depend. It was gal good. Those idea she was apparently calling up all these celebrities asking for them to join in song and they're gonna he'll everybody through love and send me people change and a guy. Now have put me in the meanwhile. What a terrible scientists saying when people are dying? Imagine there's no haven't, imagine grandma's just riding. But also that song has nothing to do now has in parallel the pandemic, and especially at the time in New York, I mean we ve had three or four people that we know that died
you know and numerous people they got sick and they those refrigeration trucks. I mean they were everywhere then in the ambulances were gone. I mean you know, things have calmed down, but it was fuckin whose aid hundred people a day in New York and oil. Crazy. To imagine, we think about nine of your theatres it was horrible and then and then every day you know people every day, You know a guy on the diner couple dinosaur, I'm not a guy for twenty years photographer from the car and a good guy. He died another friend my and mean they died in an enormous people. Got it so it's a real thing. I mean some places. There wasn't many cases so
I can understand. Why get away you you see in our tv yeah, but it's not here, but in New York and people a hold up, they can't pay their rent. It can't pay their bills that they can t. Luckily they caught, you know simulation unemployment. Eventually, at the beginning, now Then you got some shallow, Alan say and it's like being in jail. She lives in the biggest house in the world. Are the beach it couldn't be at Evanna wishes thing about Ireland once you get a little blow back, she are laudable back, but that was a funny joke. She said I mean the same cause every day in everyone's gay, so I've been in jail, that's funny, Is that what sense with a joke worker it wasn't, she wasn't saying I'm in jail overhand my aunt I gotta she was, it was what she said was fuckin funding. In our she's, like this pandemic is like being in jail in the same clothes everyday. In everyone's gay I mean that's fine, it's because she lives gauge lives of the gay women, millions, a joke
Does a good job mistake. People matador I'm like come on, get out of context, yes well, they care it's also when people are broke and people can't literally that they're not just broke, there's no hope in sight and is no fault of their own. It's a very bad situation, terrible dinner. I hear any fuckin jokes from some really rich lady lives on the beach talkin about others like prison. Honestly, I listen very compassion and I mean that these people lost their jobs in these days they didn't have extra money, Arriv Taylor forged and child support. I mean this is real. Shared liability was in no way to make money right. That's even is as much as a guy wanted to go to work, What have they there with her work, to be no work to be at everything, shut down, yeah, it's it's a mess and then to take into account how alcohol, like sales was essential, business, liquor, stores of essential business. But
Colleagues anonymous was banned cradle. You couldn't go to meetings, so this is people There are just like in despair, and then they can go to colleagues anonymous meetings and they can't work and then Now, there's a lot of work lot of bad bad things. High Sunday was the first time I had a drink in three months since just thinks I didn't have one drink. I just I was depressed. I knew if I, Let's get a drink and watch tv all night I had my first drink runs on Saturday. Wouldn't you spend the timescale and there are the pandemic. You know we start. Would walk just about every day and really nothing. I mean. I know I'm not a big tv guy. I was reading the park watch some tv and IRAN's hard cash for fair and that to impress you know: radio in and zoom in shit like that kind of kept a sane, we would do well to a week that we went down to one
my wife with me and my daughter, we cooked every night and see my older daughter for over a month and a half she just lives in a village. I didn't even see you, you couldn't even see it. You know I mean, plus I don't want to get sick, come over weight and were not not a smoker nuthin. You know my wife, a marathon ran about whether you know we're all the facts and sick, and so we were careful on snow, careful here, but there is a terrible thing. Man in owes it and it's not over now is kicking back in that's crazy because the pro that's because of a lot of the states of lifted up their social distancing and the other in our continent or actin like there's nothing happening, so they're, gonna bars and drinking tired other time want and feel like I've. It's open its open, let's row and exactly. I have to say that with a thing you should have gone away. I mean
I don't know what the fuck and answer is. I understand everyone's tired of it put down an Orange county, the beaches of tax payers Now! The good news is: vitamin d is one of the most important factors in keeping a healthy immune system, and one things they found out was at eighty play. Percent of the people that are an icy. You with covered have a vitamin d deficiency. Four percent have sufficient levels of vitamin d, so huge. Factor. Is vitamin d is not justified either. A lady doktor, Rhonda Patrick, should better my podcast several times she wanted. To this whole. I brought IRAN to talk about how to strengthen your mood to subdue during his time, and she said one of them big, most important factors in is Vitamin D. It's a huge factor. It's one of the reasons why people in the EAST coast they get that seasonal depression they're not going out in the winter and then not supplementing with vitamin D. Seventy percent of America is vitamin defeat. Vitamin d deficient: seventy percent has insufficient, had ass the Sun vitamin D. Yes,
from the sun is the best way to get it for sure to get in the sun. But you can supplement it, has a big impact and supplement five thousand. I use a day supplement. Take it You know, like you said, I didn't understand that look, a story essential, provide all these other things are essential and I mean forget drinking. The UN system, scholar down gather depressed, is fuckin how there was some nights. I can't sleep at night, so I go to bed at two o clock to thirty. In the morning we some night just made an apple is fuckin horrible, but is a logic to the the vital the reason why they had alcohol being the central business? Is this logic to it, and that is our people, our hawks, and if you make them quit, called Turkey, they can't buy any booze. You gonna, take beds up. That would be better suited for people who have cove. So the ideas like let these people have their out. All these didn't think I was gonna last as long as it did. They thought this is gonna, be a couple weeks, a locked down and and we'd get back to business, but
Obviously here we are in fact in June, mean all should happen. Male Euro Middle Mary months nets raise shallow, solid, much easier here after being in New York. I was there for two months, It's easier here. It's easier because people spaced out exactly get your car. I've got a letter, I gotta backyard. I've got a name, it's easier. As opposed to being hold up- and I got a pretty good sized apartment- but it's not to say we are going down the elevator in the shit adhered sunny everyday too, which is necessary. Few immune system and it just better for yourself anyway, just like you, wake up as fuck is better for your head. Yeah I mean I get New York, I get it I just don't. I don't want to do it anymore. You know it's like I could be there, occasionally have you ever lived and never
