This is an unofficial transcript meant for reference. Accuracy is not guaranteed.
I, like I, do that very fell. I see what you did there. Hey everybody with the fuck is going on we're back before we get going. We gotta get through our business points. We gotta sell you on some shit that you don't want or tell you about some shit that you've already heard about one hundred times before. This is what we like to do would like to be repetitive and then bored the fuck out of you that way when the podcast gets going. He, like God, this is so much better than that fucking commercial, it's the foreplay or is it now it's more the blue balls. You know it's like you know those insecure comics that would always bring terrable opening acts. That's what that's like! That's what it's like the commercials, Our version of terrable opening act, one of our sponsors this week is Tang. If you go to roganting dot com, they will offer you twenty five dollars offer either cell phone service.
Or one of their new Android phones. Ting is cell phone network that uses the sprint backbone, but they have their own rules. You don't have to have contracts, they have great phones, they have great deals. Excellent international rates, Brian had a great time with them up in Canada. It was like a fraction. What is Att Bill was and use it all the time the service is excellent. It's not like a Mickey mouse that work at Sprint and they just have it set up, so they buy time on sprint and they give you a better deal. They are. They also credit you for unused minutes like if you, if you have a certain, great that you're going for a certain amount of minutes use less than that they knock you down to the lower number and then they credit you the difference in your next bill. It's a super ethical company! It just really! I like the idea behind it. I don't contracts. I like the idea that you can get the some of the best high end: Android phones, like the Samsung Galaxy S, four in the the the note, though, that crazy tablet phone they have that too so broken down
sing, dot com, save yourself some money. Speaking to save yourself, some money do how growth would be. If that's how I did my commercials all serious like that, stamps dot com is another one of our podcast sponsors. If you buy any of Brians T shirts, you know Brian Redban, who is not here right now, he's doing one of his Tommy store podcasts, he did all those death squad, T shirts that you see with the kitty cat on him. That's all start work and he prints, and then he sends himself using stamps are calm and he openly says that if it wasn't for stamps dot, com, there's no way I'd be able to do this because he'd have to wait in line at the post office and they have to measure each box and wage box it's annoying, if you're trying to do. If you have a small business and you're trying to send things through the mail stamps numbers are fucking amazing resource. You do all little shit on your computer. You do all the you entering the addresses. You weigh it on a digital scale that they provide and when you
print it out. You just stick that on your shit and then put it out for him for the postman and then you're done. You don't have to go to the mailbox and after weight things and measure things in a line where a bunch of people are mad. You have all this shit. If you go to stamps dot com, there's a microphone in the upper right hand, corner click it, and during the code word jre and save yourself. One hundred and ten bucks you get fifty five dollars in free postage, coupons free digital scale and bunch of the shit so that stamps dot com in the code word is J r e and our last, but not least, sponsor for today is a new one.

Logan experience trying my day Joe Rogan Podcast, my name all day. This is officially where the Sirius Satellite part starts. Another part with the commercials is only on the internet. Got it from here. That's why it seems We don't need the music. We should probably is probably a better way to do. This is probably a real momentum killer to doing the commercials as a part of the city. So. I gotta tell ya, I wouldn't mind if you did him through the show, because Grampa's gotta pee a lot in the last time I was on. I didn't know I could get up anytime, don't worry about the better. This time should just bring a bucket. Have you ever had a cat now about socks, cheese and crackers.

It was the Texas thing anybody ever voice like the Hong, that's bobcat, Goldthwait, yes playing bobcat.
Will it rain tonight. This is Bob Scratch Goldfarb. Ladies and gentlemen, thanks for having me back on all planets, thanks for being, I really fucking loved your bigfoot moving thanks watching last night and I was really psyched to watch it. 'cause, I'm a bigfoot dork, I'm a big flower from way back. You know, I know that, but I also hear the first person I gave it to didn't see it with an audience. I've been doing some like screenings at film festivals and things, and I thought it was worried. 'cause, I'm really happy you liked it 'cause 'cause! I didn't know if it lose something sitting there by yourself for no, no, no, because it's fun to watch the movie with an audience I was in Baltimore and it was beautiful because it was a really Baltimore's great. So a really mixed crowd. And I mean all races and all working classes and stuff come to this festival. I'm sitting behind. It was beautiful through through the movie. I was sitting right next to the couple black guys were beautiful. They like their goal, crazy, Bigfoot Bigfoot,
to tell you which barber I was looking up bigfoot and they were yelling and it was made me so happy. Well, there was I had to ask about something before we got on the air, because it was such a creepy movie, there's so many moments and I didn't want to give away any spoilers. So I knew I'm like a kind of, You go by that yeah! Well, yeah and yeah, so I try not to talk about some of the things that are revealed, but I did talk about a lot of the movie. I'm really happy. Thank you. I mean this is the first review. I mean I got a couple. I should say: there's some nice reviews online, but that that's really nice, I loved it. I loved her and one of things I loved about it is you you are completely true to a big foot. Lore like you, you added in all the stuff that right, I like the knocking in the holding cell yeah, exactly like a real Sasquatch yeah and I did was lean and I didn't. I didn't go in six could be snarky. I mean I think the movies got stuff in it. That's funny, but I I wasn't trying to you know I wasn't trying to mock up believers in Sask Watch. I I just 'cause of couple of reasons.
And I always saw myself as as an cider. So why am I going to pick on one of the most picked, a concept? Cultures? You know I was talking to Dan Harmon. We were breaking it down like and picked up on or misunderstood groups. It goes like red fair enthusiasts. Then it goes Taliban and then Sask watching theses like as far as people who cut him some slack or or I'm trying to understand where they're coming from yeah. That's hilarious. That's so true, poor Sasquatch hunters they don't catch, they don't catch. A break ever You know I want to wear the Patterson game. One footage was shot that yeah. That was the end, and that was the germ of the whole movie. For me really was I I it was me since I was nine years old wanting to go to that site that that's really and then I happen to make a movie, but but that's the reality. This show that I'd love to tell you I didn't well up, but I did I'm sure I would too crazy. I don't believe in that footage. I think that Bobcat Patterson footage is utter horseshit,
but why well? This is first of all, because there was a guy that that says he didn't name Bob Heronemus, yeah, bye, miranda- miss can't find on a map, though he can't find bluff. Creek on a map where he couldn't he's gone but yeah well, you just because there's a lot of places. I've been and I couldn't find out yeah, that's true. I go home to Syracuse and I go. I know I lived here. I know I lived on this street. I know that's where Doug e Tool- and I and I hit Danny with a shovel, but I went back to where I went it sounds like I killed someone. I want to clear that up. I did not wait to go to high school Newton South yeah yeah. I went group. No, no, the Jersey was born yeah, but I I lived in San Francisco is a long story, but yes age. First one through seven, I lived in New Jersey, seven through eleven San Francisco, eleven three thirteen Florida and then thirteen through twenty five, probably New York or Boston on and then and the New York. So twenty five New York, twenty seven, only
it's a it- makes for an interesting person. Only the is your child yeah yeah yeah. Are you the new kid everytime everywhere man? Really that's why I learned martial arts. I got tired of people with. Did they did they beat you up? The people always threatened to. I got lucky that I avoided it, but you're funny. Guy I mean then you use that wasn't very funny. You gonna be. It was a kind of had writers. Do you know? I mean you know, you know you know. Sometimes you got good delivery. It wasn't comfortable enough to be funny. I probably would've been funny around people if I got to know them really well, but I really just classes specially, wasn't right, you really quiet and then getting picked on. And then you learn how to kick ass, but how often did you actually have to use it? Never yeah! That's that, I'm John one fight in high school was really quick and it was it was. You know I probably to avoid it like. Sometimes I think about it could and do you regret you didn't
a little bit, because I I the kid I better. I didn't hurt him along with his stomach with this, but it's pretty quick yeah what it was. It was at a point where I was it was really like. I was completing a lot martial arts tournament, so this guy hit you I mean he he's he was going to, and that was and we took him out with how many yeah it was just one to bad ass, but now it's kinda, but it's also. If you didn't know you could do that, you wouldn't respect it. Well. It's also. I probably, did to show off. We could have avoided it. It could avoid like, even though he's kind of a dick This is also a young kid just like may were both retarded yeah. I know, as I said, owns great now. Do your ears yeah make mistakes some some to start things you don't even want to finish but you're, stuck in a quagmire yeah it was there people around yeah yeah. It had to be the la
wait. I mean that no one probably mess with you after that. Well, people are always, if you you are looking for trouble that you're going to find trouble right. I was never. I never looked for trouble right, but is when you're in high school there's unavoidable situations we don't even want to be somewhere. You, like you know, I mean in your life. You have control over what yeah I used to do for an occupation where, with the kind of put maybe like, maybe my shape and everything protected me from you know. I mean like, if you kick my see you be it's embarrassing. You can help a test of big. You kick the fat dough, you guys. Yeah did you. Did your fish get stuck this section noises, but I mean I never was like. I I I I always wanted to avoid conflicts. Of course it's You know the only reason why I ever learn martial arts at all. It was so that I would be scary enough, so people left me alone, but I mean and I always there's a a bit in my act about you, know the voice of death and that's you know, I'm going to kill you that guys
to kill you know. Guy was like I wanna kill you yeah, just some dumb drunk jack. That is but he's gotta pull him off him, so he doesn't get in a fight with you met. So many scary people in my life, as far as like physically scary people, especially all the years working for the UFC right right. The idea of running around in the same world as some of these people was fucking, terrifying right, you know 'cause it most like UFC fighters are very common. They get it all out in the gym, but if you see when you showed is agdan, you run into the wrong person in the wrong time. Like many people have your it's up to them, whether or not you stay safe, it's up to them whether or not they just beat the fucking shit out of you. I've seen it happen if you had before it's really, I saw guy getting knocked out in Denver, I was at the comedy. Works in Denver is really cool place and I saw something happen that totally didn't need to happen. There was a guy who was walking down the street and he was really fucking drunk and there was another guy who was sober and the guy
strong said something stupid the guy with her, but he wasn't a threat. It was great clearly not a threat right, but then the guy, who is sober, just beat push it out, and you tell it was totally impaired. An the other guy was like stronger more athletic anyway, he's just looking for an excuse to beat the shit out of somebody just wanted to beat someone up. It's like the heckler figures out they're going to tackle in the guy who gets in a fight before they even leave house. I mean. I really believe that some people do. Yes, I think a majority of draw that in, but I don't know how it went from big foot to to ask kick it, but that's alright. I mean you know, but you know it's like I'm not proud that that I have the ability to really the uh, an I'm not known. For this I mean people. A lot of folks aren't familiar that I do stand up, but you know that I can really decimate someone in the audience I can. I mean really, but you can really bad and in fact I truly don't usually even the in my new,
five thousand three hundred and nine my axe is they always over. The nine Leona yeah still had the new car smell she's face, so they own I am you know they see this like switch go and they they leave the room they get uncomfortable and it's just like all right and I'm really not proud of that. That is what a horrible skill you know. Well, the defense mechanism for doing stand up. I felt like you, don't even I mean when it gets going. I truly don't know yeah. I mean talk about the comedy works man. It was this. I got. You know people will yell out where from, and this is horrible night there and I love the comedy, which I think that's probably, if not the best club, it's one best in the whole country. One of those you know horrible shows and interviewing voice to the voice. You know they want me to do this voice from the how they know me from years ago and I'm not doing it and and then this woman in the back of the room. She goes I'm free,
Aurora and I go. I know you've learned to sit in the back and I truly didn't think of that in advance. You know- and I felt that I feel bad. You don't be such a weird response that even the crowd like kind of didn't, go low. They kind of just pretend they didn't hear it, because it's so weird and whore but like I really kind of this, which goes- and I say things and I'm not say I'll take responsibility form, but I'm usually later on kind of a surprise that I said I you know I I berated a table. Full women, this one night and- and they were very you- know- they're acting like the show is all about them and I just paraded his table women and then one stood up sobbing and she's like going by the way I forgot even what I said- and it was a couple of minutes later by the way people love these kind of stories and they love watching it. I'm going to bars, never emptied out. The two guys are getting along in the parking lot. Let's watch so I'm up there and this woman stands up crying. She goes
I'm not a whore? It's my birthday! Oh proud of. So do you think that that comes from doing stand up and bar look around by the building going defense, my course in Boston. That was the the hardest hardest place. Fifty six fan of comedy it was. It was horrible. It was, but when I got started it created so many unique characters, and so many you know, I got started and it's like you know, came out of that group. It was like you know Lenny, Lark and Dennis Leary and Steven Wrightenberry criminals, and you know just all these different, unique voices that came out my friend Tony V, and so it was really tough to do com. People pounds now, but you were forced to have your own. Your own voice, you know you guys were ahead of me and when I first started doing comedy and started doing open mic night. I was really aware, because of
do you guys like what a crazy scene it was yeah? It was. I mean it was really, you places on earth. People are talks hate this on my park as well. They're gonna talk about Boston, comedy, no, it's not so yeah Bill Burr and I have had on the conversations- and I I'll tell one or two but since they're not nowadays and play on this on, your bike is but- and I and I the I'd, really rarely talk about, but but I I am I don't drink. I don't take drugs, but I don't tell people about it, but I just did, but I I haven't said those nineteen years old. So this story is that long ago I started doing comedy when I was fifteen. I got eleven twenty, so this is like a story when I'm eighteen with I'll say as Lenny Clarke and all these guys and we boarded up the doors and the windows in the dang, how hard board right and we just drinking and doing piles of blow in them in the end, and- and
all night and then the door opens an it's like smokey and backlit 'cause, the sunlight pouring in and it's it's a bunch of cops come walking in and I'm this high and gacked out of my mind and I'm going I'm going to jail, I'm going to jail. That's all I'm thinking and the go Lenny you fucking cock sucker. How are you and I sit down and they start doing blow and I'm like yeah and I'm like there is no there's there's, no god yeah yeah yeah up is down. We do chinese comedy club and we would we would cut lines on the on the ribs. Pork ribs would be in the freezer Chapin lines on those orange pork ribs, the ribs, the redwoods. You know, that's hilarious, yeah, you do lines on those could be a flat surface
these families that get served up this. Oh my god blow covered book or pork ribs for crimson juniors, bouncing off the walls. Whenever we go to the dang whole he's so animated. This was like in the 80s. Did you guys get real coke back? Then it was it all chopped up still. I think we were getting high and I know the number you know I'm saying I don't know the difference. I mean I really have never done coke so really. Well, I did it and and and and like I said, I stopped everything when I was nineteen. I know people don't believe the folks who do it, though tell you there's like rockstar coke, like pure code, which is amazing and then there's like you know, Tom Sawyer from the Cobb sure yeah. I will tell you like. If you talk to him about old school, like rockstar code, I've talked to some of the Boston, I went to the it'll like I, you know, I don't I don't quit, because I got so that could cause that cause it. They should have been
The code got bad like I think they were disappointed in the quality of a blow will play again fucking high anymore. Apparently it's very different experience. You get like real cocaine, one hundred percent pure cocaine. It's a very different experience in a lot of people are getting a speed you getting like Coke mix some sort of intent now, because I would do this, I had done speed and it didn't affect me the way the coke to it. So that's my Pepsi challenge very scientific. I don't know they cut it with things. I don't know what they're kind that baby laxative in vitamin b is yeah. That's a big one. With some xtc I used a credit weighing the cut. It was beat apparently speed. Sometimes you don't get all your axe. You get a bunch of funky amphetamines in there. Wow. So what we're trying to say to the kids? Don't do bad, you know who you yeah, I saw you guys were doing it with the cops with the cops. I mean. There's nothing stories like that. You know it guys. You know guy would still some guys
coke and then somebody's arm will get broke. I mean it was not. I mean it really, that's the reality of it. Well Dane Cook was on the podcast when he and I were talking about how the guys who are doing comedy where men like Kevin Knox and Lenny Clarke. This is big MAC. It's like manly. It was a very Sweeney. It was just like Variag, oh yeah, yeah, it wasn't, God damn, but people going oh you're in Cambridge in there imagine that works. You got pipes and we got patches on her sweaters. Like are you coming out with like one of those doing suede jackets with the indian test, tassels dangling and overstepped chair with an were sitting there talking about Howard, references and stuff? You know, but no it was pretty down. Maturity, and but you know it was a best place to train. I mean 'cause, you know you were ready for a You know you. The hackles were in saying that the of the violence in them. It really is weird to think about how my
comedy and violence was in that scene. It was a crazy scene. It was I'll try to keep some of the people out of this story, but but one of the guys I was with one night. You know when someone's party in and they just the switch is thrown in they become Gore go. You know, I mean like they're, just not themselves them completely. You know I mean and one our buddies insisted that he and I were vikings, and he was really the commitment he added his character was. He was a hiking and he was holding me in a headlock and he wouldn't let me go and to the point where it got creepy like he was just give me around the bar. It was funny and then they went to a will for a long time like I was that you know, and I couldn't do any use much larger than me and then bury. Could remember. The time had a had a a cast,
the guy who had me in a headlock by the ways of friend. He just had a rough night. That night he says Crimins goes because let him go and he goes and the goggles hug me or hit Maine increment goes. It was the fastest decision I ever made in my life. It just popped him with the cats broke his job, That's also that was that's comedy yeah. It was. It was crazy. It was man, it really was. I I came just behind you, as in one of my big regrets, is that I never got to perform the ding ho because it was so legendary yeah. Well is because the the the the the comics were in charge. Basically, you know yeah working in the the all that stuff. So it was, it was yeah. It was crazy, well, that's sort of how the comedy store used to be, except for the booking aspect of it in the comics. We have are in charge of the, but there was also but there's no real crowd control. There was yes, all comics working the booth comics work the door. The comedy store was like it's all, comics work and well. This was this is yeah. This was pretty much
May ham is guy shun? He ran Lee here and talk to me, maybe twice one night I go out on stage and I'm doing my character and yeah, I'm full boy, all right and then I stop- and I say you know hi. This is my real voice. I'd like to gut and clean some fish tonight. Does anyone have any fish? You know real straight. I'm saying this in my roommate raises hand, he pulls out this big fish. Now the fish have been in the bank of his car is rancid. Oh no. I just got the fish and got entrails fish entrails all over the stage and this woman just contact but as soon as she smells just so I'm a professional, I put the mic right down to it, so you could hear retching over the PA. So this chicks, puking up this fish cut vomit all over the front of the stage, and then I go thank you goodnight.
Bill Campbell around when you're this guy? You really should go, but is act. As you know, talking about you know relationships. You know, men go to, you know yeah. This is good and he goes a you know. So he his actors destroyed because I'm this kind of stuff, so yeah, very nice, wholesome kayak, and then I did this and then Shun Lee there's only first. Let me talk to him. He goes. He pulls me over. Exactly go bother. You weird puppy, you weird wow, what a great boss, yeah yeah? That was yeah? It's like. I still did this. You know second, show don't do the fish you no more, no more fish! That is hilarious, but yet so What year did the ding ho end? I don't know, I was gone by the time it it it. It met its demise, but when did you bail, when you add a Boston, I went to San just go. It was all pretty quick. Now I got on Letterman and then it was in the early 80s uh
can't you know really. I was half in and half out of the different cities in which is gone boss and slowly. Eighty two, maybe three. I started in the eighty eight, how oh wow so his way after yeah the Boston comedy scene. When did it really start? When was like the birth of it was before I got there and I got there at the eighty. The end of eighty, probably did you see, friends salami. This document sure yeah yeah, I'm a little bit in that yeah yeah. It taps some of it, but there's still yeah still stuff. That was I mean, He did a great job, but he wasn't Rawdog. Well, there's just some things in there that you know well thing is funny. Is that I watch that movie? Would let me climb can and part of the story. Is that these guys don't like me because I get on Letterman, you know, and that was true I mean and not really mad, because I'm you know, I don't know younger than them. I come in from Syracuse again on Letterman, like you know, probably in a year or so I would have been pissed too but
unless he would be you know and Lenny and our friends actually we're going to do a project together. But, but at the time when he was really pissed yeah he was like you know, he's throwing me know what the fuck is your yeah ten, That was a thing with that places like take felt. It was almost like a union gig like you, didn't put in your seniority, yeah yeah, yeah so that became part that movie. But you know I sat there and watched it with money and and and we just kind of laughed together, you know and and it in my I why my daughter to is really great for my daughter- is really cool to have a watch that while yeah, I have a pretty good experience, hotel, a good story.

You know and then I'm like, and then I go what happened because she was not, and I'm like. My feelings are hurt too I'm like well, he didn't chat am which makes being a creep, but I I was weird what was the motivation for for making speak for a movie, because this is like some fleet lead? For me I mean I, I found out yeah this like three weeks ago. Okay and when and also folks use if there for many a lot of folks, don't make. I make movies, but but the the the it's it's completely different than like world very static. God bless America. I still had them in the sixties. I was great thanks, Meta Great Movie, Tom Kenny and I who who's at name job is now the voice of Spongebob is banking, the clown and yeah. These can cook and he's doing San Francisco step. But I'm on time, since I was six
we're introduced by a crying none at Saint Matthews. Well, we weren't introduced Tommy tells the story better, but he says his fat kids dragged behind this. None who's just sobbing and she she drags me into his classroom and goes because we were in two different first grades, She's like I can't take him anymore and she left me in this class, and I was so I felt horrible it so embarrassed. I started crying too, but but he thought his. I can make a nun cry, so he introduced himself at lunch. That's literally been down, both the I'm. Fifty one he'll be fifty one in July. But uh. So yeah, I'm not Tom. Kenny he's big the clown him and I were watching a shake they showed shakes and people recently and people showed up as care. Actors and they know the dialogue and there's clown whores there. These women were just this slutty clowns, and in the middle of it, leans over to migos what the fuck we thinking
So what do this might be about in the crowd was really easy enough. It was like that Shatner Sketch on SNL. You know we like get a life. You know we're really wigged out by that. But you know, if you make a move, you better be willing to talk about it, because even that might small indie films that I do under the radar and they play festivals, you're going to talk about him for the rest of your life. So you better kind of stand by and that's part of this movie- was that I always been fascinated with big for I've always been. Is super interested in the passing game. When footage you know- and- and so I I it wasn't that long ago, the nine she's like saying she who is me is she goes, go go go to your bigfoot, so I put about fourteen miles on the car it just in California just driving around famous sites talking to different people. Until I made it all the way up to Willow Creek, you Know- and so you did this just to sort of form the idea in your head.
Yeah. Well, I wasn't, I didn't, have a move. I had a different movie in my head, which I still all right, because I I thought it I I think it's fascinating about Sasquatch is, is it's a it's a good everybody it? I wanted to do a thing that kind of This isn't this movie, but I had an idea for a movie that kind of took on faith in religion and everything, and I thought maybe I'd set in and the Sasquatch Community, because there's people that just believe there's people that believe in see. There's people that are shyster is this people I mean. So it's a really good. It you know it's a good analogy for religion, But you know I don't know where you sit on the point. He had our last point. He had a big foot. They have funny the yeah yeah yeah funny, because I I, as I said this guy go over to another guy at a conference in the guy's, got a car. Red hat with a big point in a big way and the guy gets you discussed me- you guys were his look at that had,
and so you discuss, you mean oh yeah and the other day goes really I've seen bigfoot. The times and you're never going to see him 'cause. You smoke, let toon yeah. I know they go and it's pretty dang straight yeah. What else is a well? This is beautiful. You know this is really amazing is like so so some cultures are fascinated me. I love the fact that that that You can get in a discussions and go down these crazy rabbit holes with everybody and then yeah! I I do I you know here's the thing when you say you believe that means people say you no longer impartial, but I'm gonna, but everybody has you know it's so I am not impartial. I I I I I. I do believe that there is. There is a Sasquatch out there, wow or lard our our. I should say big foot, hello. You went there. He said I believe this,
Sasquatch yeah. I mean we're elegant my career. What is going to happen when people can sit Bobcat, Goldthwait's, weird, that that but one of those subjects, though, where it's like ufos or psychics, or something along those lines. As soon as you start talking about it, you're almost immediately a silly person yeah, but I'm already you silly person, yeah, I'm so far off the radar I do what I write is via its roof completely. You know I about seven eight years ago I really just kinda quit I stop being and stuff that I was embarrassed of. I stop. You know. I still do something if it's nice in the breads there, but for the most part I just quit, you know I stop trying to get jobs and then I get discovered I did. I stop writing movies for other people that I wasn't getting paid for that. I thought they would like or I stop. I stop out all of it and I just and it was wet and I was with fortunately enough, Jimmy Kimmel hired me to direct this show and that's a big deal.
That's a huge deal because you know I mean he didn't spell show a little bit of a little should pound. We ran into each other, that was yeah, yeah, totally random and them. So what does she pay well and then, but working for Jimmy, you know kind. He just gave me this. Freedom is nice that someone believed in me. You know and when pretty much I I become, and still we put a we talked about it before the podcast when the during the commercials. The thing with the tonight show that was the big yeah well it'll say are on fire. Is this persona people had an load of in in you know, and- and I didn't even you know- I got really frustrated because I was just being famous for being famous in this- is before them. You we did a lady. I just got really tired of being like you. A book me on a talk, show, I'd, go crazy and people would be happy and- and- and I really was just like so over- it really destructive- you know do you like rebelling against, like the police, Academy, movies and that sort of thing
box. The report about is that, but also it's it's it's rebelling truly, I think the real thing. What well, as is that I will you know let it was nice enough to have me on and then and then I saw this pattern that I I I may have become a regular and- and I've never really discussed this- that terrified me the idea of being successful on that level, because it's easy to be a guy who never tried and then you're in some dopey teen comedies, and you can criticize what everybody else does and be better. But the really put you know to really put your on the block and say this is who I am. This is gonna, be my material or this is the movies, and this is one of the products that say I am that's terrifying, because then you're out there to be judged, that's fascinating, so it's almost like get a self destructive quality because completely idea of success it was just too paranoid, because then I'd have to actually pony up and actually oh, so you been criticizing Xy and Z. Well, what do you do? You know so so
I was really trying to not it's kind of funny, because I was trying not to be on tv anymore. An I said tonight show fire and then immediately I get booked on every show. People think like I was banned from other shows. I wasn't banned from that. I'm sure they actually had me on a week later. But but it's it's very, Fascinate is funny. I was just writing this thing. Uh, you know a tour, Nirvana as a comedian and and and there would be times where you know I I was- it- was a few nights where I was sitting up a curtain. You know. We were exchanging stories like you know him showing up and drag it in a gown for a headbangers ball, and now buddy. Getting that you know that's pretty funny, especially it was funny to him. 'cause he's getting asked to go on a metal show, so that would be funny show you never he's they gonna this guy. Will you know and and expensive, because he wasn't running around the lipstick on why you know this was comfortable in a drag so
it was you know and he's talking about. Nobody would get him, you know, and it was really funny and then and then you know like I smashed up the arse, the whole show did way more damage on that show. I remember that too yeah I wrote Paramount sucks on the back of it 'cause they fired him basically and they get more audio. It was just me trying to end it. You know I really related more to rock then comics, I just kinda boo. You know I try to and then We you upset, though, that you were like you did. You feel like you were getting pushed into some like family box and it wasn't representing you like I'll, isn't real a little merry, as I make a little of that. You know it's funny people. You know, I think the character with cloud people from hearing anything I was saying you know, Club meet Bob Meet Bob. I got it when I was like I mean: when did it come out? No, but yeah. It was just starting out. That's funny, 'cause that album like people, don't I don't think people understand that I actually had material. I think yeah, just tell me in police Academy,
is going to say oh yeah. That was that it was a real. It was really good comedy. It was really good stand up and I say a lot of people. I remember just thought you were like the crazy actor guy, yeah God, people didn't know like you didn't just have so now we had like really smart stand up, but that's really good stuff, but it was weird because I think I help perpetuate it. Of course Ipod was possibly you know it's kind of funny when you go on stage and you do this persona, even peep, so who are rolling their eyes start laughing. So it's hard to jettison it x. Actually, when you go on the road and there expecting it it's weird to get pigeonholed, I just stopped it was. I was on the road and I realized I don't dislike stand up. I hate this fucking character. I didn't expect it all yeah and they you know, still do your do the voice. You know you know, but but it since I got to do I got to do I gotta, be me, you know as corny as it sounds. Yes, I I I feel you yeah
got a quick. You know you got it like. This is weird thing in in our society where it's like you know you can't quit in in the that's where you find when you're happy, you know he's this isn't working for me. You know I thought of this, isn't working for me, so you could end up in a place where you go. This is what's working for you, unfortunately, and that they're usually about forty five. Well, there's a lot of people. That they they never abandon. That act. In the the Yang onto it, like yeah, Judy Tenuta still do stand up. I don't, I don't know sure a great act. It's funny that might my wife and I brought it, but the nine and I brought up to the scene is set in the plane because I did the gathered in the jungle, those wow and we were wondering if like, if, like they booked the wrong acts on purpose. So we're like putting together a lineup like it was going to be Paula, Poundstone, Judy Tenuta in Aimee Mann at this years. Gathering of the Juggalos
a man you know, because I think that gives sometimes did you ever see ever is the the the jack yeah. I did it all you sex with me gathering there's a movie called the Shoot american jungle. I think his name. No, I'm just watch clips on the internet. Well, they just have you sought to have to kill or get hit with who the real yeah man through Poulidor, ran out of Faygo COLA, so they they started. Throwing poop Oh my god, like dudes, were shitting in what cops do stand out over they backed out report upon yeah yeah, it wasn't like Jalen, they ask someone else is Pooh yeah, which is that's my point. Look I'm going to do. Yes here. Well, that's her on stage and they throw in poetry, like like hypothetically. Let's say you are, I I give it up. Look. She shemale pussy stays in them She stays up there. Jesus that shit just hit her legs. I love that she's. Like sitting there going, you know what couple
minutes. I'm going to win him back late. She just totally that I gotta give it to grab her crotch just do stuff back. Is that all shit or is it some of the beer? I think something it's Faygo cola, it's the soda they like to throw. But like a few years, my point, if you parking on the street and you hit me with dog poo right, like you saw coming through it, it wouldn't be a deal. Breaker I'd be mad. I really go what the fuck was that you go. I don't know if that was funny funny. We laugh it off. But if you hit me with, like you know like oh do you know, I mean like some poop from a person that would be the deal breaker I'd, be like you fucker. I got half see in my eye now. Really swift yeah, german shit is way more to wake real shit. Did you ever see, Gg Allin link, poo yeah and any such thrown at people and
get out of their way like like, like military striping like when people are fire. Something about human poo is way worse in Starify it yeah. We don't want on your clone. No not enough. So I did the dog shit on you just hose it all God yeah, but I do yeah yeah, the gathering of the Juggalos and and and and and and the the opening act up chuck the clown is trying to calm my nerves. Now, there's there's! No, you know they have there their their own security. So there's no security, it's just It's just juggalo law on this huge piece of property, wow so and there's so madness: yeah, there's fires going on and fire where people are always lighting fire to light fireworks like the way people light cigarettes like casually. I saw a lot of that was really funny like where people don't jump out of the way. It's like some baths. What is it like for you
wandering around among the speaker. They freaking out no 'cause. I think well now Sometimes I get recognized for the most part. I don't get recognized, but but it was you know we took a golf cart through the whole thing and, like I said, there's a fight, AIDS and and people. I don't know what they're doing, but maybe you might know what this is, but certainly people would drop like that, be like a group of people and then you just see him drop like like their puppets and someone could these things they just sit there like this, and then they would share draft thing, like their know, know know, know like whatever they have been doing. We just suddenly like a bunch of them, which is true, yeah, be like three or four room obviously they just ingested or did something and then I'll send you seem to like like Domino's. And then they get up and it was. I don't know what that whatever it is. Not good yeah! Well well, so so so so it's it's! I understand the idea of the Juggalos. By the way I get it, you know I get it
it's a certain sack. That's that's pissed off and it's certain group of people and I am, and they do have the sense of community and family. I do. I do try to be open minded, and they and by the way they were very nice to me. I should say that it's a very good way of putting them, but but while we were up, like trying to convince me that it's not that scary of a gig and he's driving me around on this golf cart and he's like you know you got in this huge cloud. Just everybody is kind of either some guys are cut in cloud megabits, Latimer or like Obese. You know it it men and women. It's really like an incest. Survivors convention, like you know, nobody's going to touch me anymore in a right, so this guy just jumps out of nowhere and starts punching up check on the Gulf guys running along in it and I'm
you know reason he's like fuck, you watch. Oh my god, fuck you up Chuck. It is difficult and he's gunning it the guy, so we lose the guy and he's like I'm here every year. You know they know me, I'm like family and I'm like ok. So so then he punched him in the face Please punch him right in the face and then he took it like in the shoulder and then and then by the time we got. No me again got I'm like one like in the kidney on the way out. Thank you left him hard, yeah yeah real punches real punches Jesus, so so that is kind of like a little so much and he's trying to he's trying to convince me that Santa Fe Go, the first kind of bagel comes in boof and it sprays all over us and he's like he's so familiar with getting hit with vagal cola. He goes. He goes diet, it's not going to stay. I swear to God. He really said that something larious. So then one comes in
and in the the nines got it I'm I'm camera. She had like a sports setting honored on our camera. It said the shutters like faster, so we got this shot uh. It's like this is a proof and we got this can of soda this guy does a baseball pitch and you see it whizzing seconds before it hits up right in the Temple, no car rack and he just slumps over and he goes kick slumps. The wielding's hurt. I'm hurt back by the way, he's mid sentence, because you know some, like that when the soda is that going to happen at a Dave, Matthews correct any slumps. Over he's, like I'm hurt, I'm hurt bad Bob he's called me Bob's. I know he's really fucked up, not bobcat, and I think it was out oh my god, so he hits the he hits the gas and now yeah. That's some chuck yeah, it's Joel,
It was like the golf cart, that's crazy! So how old were you when this was going on by the way? Just now so fifty one years old, one thousand five hundred and fifty years, fifty years old? And so so object now for full throttle an I'm steering spear and were whizzing through the crowd, like mister toads, wild ride, jugglers time another and then so I love this. This is actually beautiful. You know he was concussed his eyes red. Like that? But my god he's like we just went back to the trailer and we're just really really quiet, and then he puts an ice cold faygo on his side of his head. Oh that's a larius! Well because he's like going he's, gonna look he's like am I bleeding so I don't know where the makeup starts and was blood. I don't know what's right, exactly fucking CANA so did to the head that that's hard,
then I'm not going to uh may or may not do it looked like he was doing some sort of stimulant have had to and because it's you know, no, we you worried about your safety or this is yeah yeah. I I once I got it yeah you know, and and by the way, I'm no stranger hijinks. You know I miss the man who lifted tonight show couch on fire. It says I have good ideas and bad ideas and I don't know the difference. It's just ideas and I treat him with enthusiasm. I may or may not have let a quarter stick of dynamite in my backyard. When I lived up, I think it's a half a stick. It was like half a stick and it blew up is watermelon that shot all the way like three floors up. It was that story goes and gets kind of gory, but I digress so hello, stranger, so like something explodes Indiana
in my wife got Saddam ad and I'm like now. That's dynamite now so I go up and I'm like hey where's, my party. You know. I actually did a fine set it by the way crowd was, one o'clock. I hit the stage they you know they they like the tenacity. If you can actually hang there there- and I you know my own- His brother was a biker, so I'm kind of familiar with the kind of out lobby favorite? Wasn't it's never that uhm? You know freaky to Maine and it seems like it's sort of an agreed apon thing at this sort of a place if you're going to hang out with a bunch of people that are party and they call themselves Juggalos, you know some. It is going to fly through the air is going to be right. You can't get mad about soda, but up to the point of violent. What the problem is. Is it There is no there's no law right. It's a little lord of the flies like some dude. They thought he was stealing so they
basically I don't know what happened, but they tore his car apart, like just dismantled but yeah. So it's a little little lower the fly. Yeah I mean I would I got paid in a that's actually like yeah and then and then and then the cops are just at the lip just just just taking people to jail. They had a bus. So so we pull out right and the capsules on what's going on, I go look. I got a bag full of money. My pocket called bright out comedian big in the eighties. You know that yeah yeah yeah, you know that's been weird, hey it's whatever you want to do, I'm complete Easter, a and they they actually found that really funny. That is funny. So they were looking for people to be drunk, and then they open up my bag of money in there like LEO. I should do comedy it on their own bust, my chops, but yeah with the looking for drunk drivers or
Oh just Rico, high out of their minds. Anything I mean they were just popping everybody that pulled out of the street there. I'd like what you said about the about it being like community and there's a lot of positive things to there. There is it so I mean, like I tell the story, and I laughed and stuff, but was it any different than when I I went to see the Allman brothers of my brother Tommy and he was tripping on acid and his brother big it's well. This is brother biker who still still alive big, manage we, who is a green beret and we're going to see the Allman brothers? He suddenly thinks everybody going into the concert is Charlie. Is the best that What year was this? Probably like? Seventy eight, oh, my god, and I'm just like you know. Sometimes when things go crazy, that's the other thing about me.
When during mayhem and chaos, I'm actually super calm. It's because you've been around it so many times. No, but like everyday life. Will flip me out like we were talking earlier, the line in the post office. I can't handle correctly, I get upset and stuff, but but mayhem. I I get really calm really yeah, like a deer jumped out in front of us more up in Willow Creek, and I just said my wife. I go just stop the car she come. I get then daddy, I don't know, is very right, that's better than the other way yeah yeah yeah, but the the the I know what you're talking about freaking out about line stuff like that, if you, if you can't just stand still and relax, you know a good in a long line and and then the nice slow. It's probably like an a d h d thing right: people are actually really freaking out. Well, it's the it's the it's the
you know the nine because MIA a misanthrope, and I think that is not correct, because I think what upsets me is, I actually kind of have. I think I thought I try to think the best. I really do, even though I make movies were him. Shooting people- and you know, and and and and all these weird things I do kinda give people the benefit of doubt. I truly do when she said that she said she could hear a misanthrope, and I said you only say that 'cause you're a person and she, always afraid that I'm going off the grid 'cause at night. She calls it the my lake porn. I just comes in and say what are you looking at it? Just me looking at like look at this eighty acres out lake yeah, it's got its own It's going creek. Were you looking at like how's it going to get the generator going? Oh yeah go off the grid dude you in Maine. I think about that shit. All it's off the grid
Squatch all day disc, watching to set up a few gifting boxes. You went scratching yeah. I went to this new show. I'm doing is it? Did you start it yeah the show started. It starts Aaron July 16th on the Sci Fi Channel. It's called Joe Rogan questions. Everything and one of 'em is Bigfoot. I've had a bigfoot fascination since I was a little kid when I was a little kid. I was camping. The Pacific NW with my step dad and there's a dude who's up. There was a trapper and he had like animal skins and shit is killing animals Bobcats, which I didn't think was kind of creepy at time. I think this really creepy. It's only seven. No, no I'm at me, but he told me about. You know that these all these people have these big foot like expenses up there in the way you describe me, and I barely remember it's like a a really whisper remember
But I remember that's what started me off on the story. I was always in the monsters and shit when I look at. I love horror movies. So then I started reading up on Bigfoot and then I watch the Patterson footage. Eventually I saw in search of a search of is the one that then you turn to everybody or incentive. Did you see boggy creek? Is that well yeah yeah yeah, so that that I think that had a body creek, I didn't go back and revisit it, but I think that movie probably had a lot to do with my movie Willow Creek, actually that I got addicted to that show finding big foot to sure sure sure actually cliff and Bobo showed up. I showed the movie up. I went back up yeah- I showed it to the folks that are in it 'cause. You know a lot of actual folks the Bigfoot community. In the movie I mean an and how can we sell this movie,
I mean I'm just started out playing anything about. I just started playing festivals. The one thing I'm really happy is big foot folks seem to really like it like Cliff said. This is the best big foot movies everything listen. This is a great horror, fun movie, it's great fun movie yeah, and this is a really true and Behar eight. They I don't. I try not to be cheesy and mono I didn't want. I didn't want those guys that I don't talk too much about this movie right because I don't want to give any of it away, because I want people to see it's. It's it's you and me, as I think it's okay, I tell you one one fix Quixtar Haitian, yet at work, I I'm having a blast thanks, Mario, please, thanks for being so I'm having a blast, so you've got that american werewolf in London. Yes, I love that movie. Me too. I yeah. So that blew my mind my thought now: where did you get? That is that from this,
How many Pat Mcgee he's a special Efx guy and he does he designs uh. If you go to mcgheefx dot com, he designs a couple different things like he doesn't alien like from the movie alien and he just reconstructs life life, size replicas, it's crazy, it's really not a mold and he uses yak hair and it's incredible one of the many I don't know if you've heard this myth, but one of the many myths about the passing game. One footage is that it's John Landis in the suit have you ever heard that no, I haven't heard that okay, so so so I've read this and I and so one morning and I hi and I love american werewolf. I love John Lennon, the animal house and all that stuff course brilliant. So, but I don't know so I get a hair up. My ass, I'm like oh, I gotta get to the bottom of this, so I shoot my age uh an email and I say, got this idea for a tv
show for John Landis, myself total. I could you get me his email, and so she gets me. The email. So I write him an email and I'm going to read it to you, 'cause it 'cause. So we and I had this exchange and I say hi John. I'm writing an article about the Patterson Gimlin footage, I'm not I just lying so he's, thank God he's a nice guy wondering, would you be kind enough to let me interview? Ok, so I go on and on, and I say I want to clear up the room is that a John Chambers made the suit in that you were wearing it so quickly? I get this email back. Deer Bobcat I am definitely not the guy in the Bigfoot suit in the Patterson Gimlin footage. What PA location. Are you writing an article for how did you get my email address, but I said back and and and and we went back and forth and and he was really cool- actually he he he he he I, I think, he's probably tired of answering that question yeah but
sure one of his early he did a great movie. It's like it's called schlock. Where he's in a gorilla suit, you've probably seen it. Is it like a gorilla with a space sound? No and it's a it's a kind of famous image, and and it's him directing the movie. I love in the gorilla suit. With this excel it really, yeah great? I love this there's a photo of me directing shakes the clown in an in a clown suit, and I just I'll never be in something I direct again and I'm like fucking. You know I'm like dead SIRI. It's in everyone's laughing and I've got such an asshole and a sense of humor fucking clouds. It's called schlock schlock yeah, never heard of that will check, but yeah it It looks like a but so I'm a I'm big fan. I wasn't coming from again yeah. It's like. I wasn't coming from a big snarky place. I I sincerely the fan of Landis and stuff, but I thought there A lot of bigfoot rumors that I kind of thought. Well, maybe I can use you know my
actions not that I have connections, but you know I could this prove some of the things you know like if they get into the John Chambers suit. You know John Chambers, the guy was an hour ago. He did the plan of the apes. You know they're right over that he may have built the suit and he did make a big for it, but his bigfoot I've seen in it's, you know so whatever it is, a rabbit hole. Well, it's rabbit hole, but it's also rabbit hole where guy says he did it. His name is Bob Heronemus. He walks just like that. He took a lie: detector test and passed, but also was a con man, so is Robert Patterson and Robert Pass also went to jail for writing a bad check paid for the very camera that filmed that footage. Yes, you go even deeper because the my about my belief in the Patterson footage it boils down to the gate. It really does. It boils down to that knee in that leg and you've been listed in a bunch knuckleheads trust me, that's a guy in a monkey suit. Let's, let's play it, let's play, it will go over it, the guy
this guy with a football pads football shoulder pads are angrily, explained this? I'm not confronting you, I know, but why this is just a more. This is like proof, but this is a weird thing: why did they go to the trouble Give it find stabilized one, there's a stabilized one: it's better! Why did they Abraham Zapruder who shot. That is why luck is a couple things I don't want to. I want people to pay attention when you watch what about? Why does it have breasts that to me? Is the weirdest thing: why doesn't have breasts? Why? But it they couldn't make a suit like that in that time, and why would they take the extra think there wasn't four way stretch fabric that looked like for it? I'm not I'm not sure if that's a different, listen to a lot of knuckleheads I think that it's uh, it's ridiculous. To say why would they make tips that looks like a man? Listen a lot among Cuban. Listen, a lot of dingbats! That's a good men. Do you look at it move?
That is a man that is not not compelling to me. That looks like it's a man. Are you serious yeah? The gate looks like I do the Lotus nonsense. When a diaper, the house got football shoulder pads on it, it's all up stupid outfit and I think you're looking at it from you know, the promise is a problem. I can mind myself. The problem is we play back over again? Well, that's fucking real yeah man. Look at the cafe! I look at look at his ass back it up a little bit. Let's watch it again, I'm going to try to make myself fuck myself. Oh my god. I think it's real now Let's see if I can, when it goes back and forth, like that, that's only you gotta play Yackety sax, look at that Benny Hill goes out and slaps look at it walk. Let's zoom and stabilized on the Bigfoot,
got a monkey too. I wish I could mind fuck myself, but I can I try. I try, but it looks so stupid. It's so funny to you this. So you just slightly longer hands, like he's, probably got some artificial hands in the suit and if you watch this look up Bob Heronemus, but he walking they've ever seen. Okay, so I have am fascinated split screen with Bob her on this walk on one side of screen all right and the Sasquatch goddammit Bob runs a big gangly Sasquatch looking mother a sailor, any pass a lie, detector test yeah, but that's not yeah, but I mean when the guy walks like wax. Like, I told the story so many times he started believing it's possible the OJ? Simpson? The whole thing? I think you can do that. I believe it one hundred percent hundred percent. You believe that you can do it yourself sure it might? My memory of my childhood is so God damn foggy. You know right. I could go one way or another way and start telling a story about it. One way, and then by that
I get ten years down the line, don't even fucking remember what really happened. Your child is so bananas now do you ever? Do you spend time trying to piece it together or you move past it? What do you mean? I mean it's pretty nuts. The moving around and I've heard you talk about it in the past usually around was nuts but the really not eating with the martial arts computing going to pita martial arts sermons throughout my high school years. That was the ninety s. Thanks as I was a child and I was having martial arts competitions against grown men, my my my search was crazy and he made me for a grown one hundred and fifteen. So from the time when I was fifteen till I was twenty one, all I did was full contact martial arts tournaments. That was,
way. Scarier than anything it was almost like. I was so scared of growing up and I was so scared of being an adult, and I was so scared of just interacting with people and fitting in in any place 'cause. I was always the new kitten always moving. I was so scared of fitting in that I just decided to do something way harder than that. So I didn't have to think about that. I try to do the most obscur, crazy scary thing to me, but why did it's really weird is not well it's. It's kind of sad to hear this. It's not that it worked out great well. That is if I had to go back and be myself as a child was often sat as a child, but ultimately it worked out. You know I mean it's not sad to go through tough experiences and develop character. I don't think that's sad. You know I mean I cannot
a lot of people came out a lot worse than me like I was so one of the comedy come about. That's the part. The comments came about from gallows humor from going to turn emits I used to make my friends laugh in the locker room and made my friends laugh like on buses and planes, and I would be the guy who was like trying to crack the ice, because we were all terrified and I wasn't secure around them. Yeah like the as a train with it was the first book, probably the first time in my life. I felt confident enough to like talk out about things and say in make make jokes about things not to get told shut the up or some is gonna. Kick my or you know. That's what a lot of one moving from town to town when you're the new kid it's like you always have to defend yourself. You're always dealing with the local bully in cycles is a constant thing. So when I start doing martial arts like this guy's on new me, so I was comfortable around them. So then I would make fun of to sort of lighten the tension, because everybody was scared, because when you go to tournaments it was just fear the bus yeah with fear and everyone scaredy weird way in in this scary and then every now and then one of us will get
the fuck out you can head, kicked and- and you deal with your friend just got- can cost in the thing that you do for your back in the bus. Go back when I had it on his head, get lack eyes inches now man said around you call the family, we're all adults. I was an only child, wow yeah. Until you know some kids came along when I was like nineteen and twenty there's some kids are joined up. There was like so seventeen and eighteen, but for the longest time I was really you have any social life. Did you hear zero, no party and no drinking? No nothing? I had a couple of friends from high school and my best friends actually went to the school that was the other school, and what about? What about women did you have a girlfriend at all, yeah yeah? I had a girlfriend almost ruined me, my first girlfriend, because as soon as they started having sex, I just didn't want train anyway I was like it was like. Why would I go do that this is way more fun? Does everybody how about this? Yes, ridiculous! like sex is way better than martial arts. Getting my facebook,
I think yeah having my nose shoved into my brain yeah. It was always alright, so we were talking about. Recipe for I I I don't suddenly became a shrink if you walks like a duck and quacks like a duck. It's a duck. Okay. So what is the last yeah? This is Barbara, Miss walked in and then the big foot Bob look into. Turning just like the big foot, I mean come on man put kind of guy yeah. It is. I don't think it's a mistake that the knees aren't shown here. Honestly, I mean, if you look at the knees and the the the the the the the the the way see the cap goes up. You never walk with ice skates on yeah, you know ice kids, don't band right and when I get to pick him up and yes, I can exaggerated walking right in what he got. The big foot looks like to me is like a dude with like a suit on that's what like crazy feet on the suit and he has to walk a certain way 'cause. Well, then, you know it's funny, I'm not giving way too much about the movie, but there's there's there is footprints in the move.
Yeah. So can you say that you shouldn't sell? Really? Yes, stop stop right now, okay, make people because there's so much about this movie is so bad. If, if your movie sock that, let's keep talking but your move, he found you. Let me shoot myself in the what do it, God, damn it doing well, so it is so I'm just here to plug hot to trot tonight. It would be beautiful if a guy who's, a con man just happened to be the first kind of actually see Bigfoot and Phil would be well. Don't you feel that way about being a comedian? Now you went out and where did, you go NW we're not going to take anything, no, no, no, but but if you find something that can go, rogue and you know yeah absolutely the, feel about it like like, like I'm, I'm going up to Oregon with and talking to cliff and we're going to go out. But, but I also feel like I taped it. You know the idea that that, if you know, if, if we find anything, I don't think so. If the I think, if you
you're just like me and I think you're feeling about it, is genuine. I think it's a fascinating subject. It's Okay, let's say bullshit, but it's also very possible that there are all out and say it's it's it's. It is fake. Okay. What is it about the subconscious through thousands of years? They can people continually see in these things. I mean. Why is it you know and and Transaction Roosevelt that tells the story of a of a you know why just keep showing up over the finish that Teddy Roosevelt story in his book, yeah yeah, and that he was unaware. Guy killed, awhile now yeah, while no, no, no yeah the orders and everything was destroyed, but but but still like all the stories and they keep showing up. I don't I'm interested to in that like what? What is it in part of our subconscious? What part of why these archetypal characters keep showing up that happens to be a man You know it's going to be simply is keep your kids away from bears, or is it something
bigger or is it a? Is it a? Is it a eight hundred pound? What I mean you know it's! It's! It's all fascinating, there's so many different things to consider when you say something like that was like. First of all, you have to consider that's probably a conglomeration of a bunch of things and one of those things being that everyone's afraid of the unknown. When you lookout into that dark woods and just what the fuck is out there use that tag their getting creeped out for the first time by the way, and I was in the woods Hello, seventeen miles down a dirt road. Eleven hours from La North. Then we go to Willa. Then you drive about forty minutes to Orleans. Then you drive up the short. Then we drive two one: slash two hours down to seventeen mile dirt road to get to the location. So there's no phones, there's no planes going over, saw two mountain lions, two mount lines and I put the actors in the tent in that scene. In there going hey man,
Well, we here man. We could do this in a parking lot, but they couldn't know because it was you, you know it Leal's, real, there's, nothing about. Don't anymore got okay! I know I said some all right, but my mother stop talking about it, but it is, is that I am happy that people like it that it is scary that there's laughs and it was the most fun I've had making a movie going down a dark road and getting into the woods or the Pacific Northwest it will give you this this new appreciation of how ridiculously wild that area is like the idea. So that we have an accurate account, did you get like a buzz when you start like from the tree, there is right
they're at their energy yeah man, you guys, please realize it, but that I actually Jim that they make you get you get like this weird, but I was I was not frighten. Everybody else is kind of frightened and- and I was just like- I I I didn't realize is about myself. I just like drop. Might row, I'm walking around in my phone underwear jump in the river. Is that what you want to get a lake house yeah even I'm fine with it and that's what you're doing yeah I go up there in the sky, just yeah man and and and- and I don't want to do this- I don't I'm not a proper. I don't like that attitude. I really don't because it's like, I don't like these preppers. It's like this weird end of times are christian judeo BS that they're buying into it. You know I mean the world ' if we've learned anything about the world, it's not going to go out with one big bang. You know it's just like you know. Things are going to fall apart, but it's not going to be anarchy. I don't know why so many people at every movie is about
You know a scientologist saving the world. I think we've been through several of those in history. We're better at understanding it now, because we have the written word and we have history. We have all these different stories of the past of civilizations that have deteriorated back when people didn't really have access. Some weird sort of hopelessness? That's that's that's! That's this and I'm not! I don't buy it. I don't. I know I don't. I think what I think I'm I think human beings are so resilient and or there is the Carling date you know, maybe Maybe the earth need plastic. You know as as that's funny happy she's. I mean I think that we probably will carry on, but it's really easily conceivable that some natural disaster could happen that could wipe out most of the
police number. All you need is one big. You could Kansai's media that hits true and we're done and there's hundreds of thousands of those floating around not like forever, but I'm not. I think, I'm more of an optimist. I think I think when you you, when you just prep and and and decide go underground. I want to go out in the woods because I, like I like the quiet. I, like the smells I like beautiful. But everybody else with me, was just completely flipped out their minds like this. In turn, this is a tiny crew and he's like Hey man, what's the difference between a bobcat and who did you see these men mountain line? We said two of 'em, you see one and Willow Creek, just walking across the street and then one in the car were you driving a car for the one, but the other one was right. Where we're filming and and he goes hey man Bobcat in amount line. What's the difference, I go bobcats a stocky and you know he's got like tail in a mountain lions toy, it's got a long tail he's like yeah, so
hotline, I go where and I'm like. I'm like this is like Werner Herzog. Making Fitzcarraldo. I'm like out of my mind and I go where he goes to the left. I go to the right file, as you know, there's a real problem with them, not allowing them to hunt mountain lions, anymore, mountain lines I found out later on our badass. Well. Well, here's the thing there cats! So if you run two hundred pound mouse, I mean it's just going to take you down yeah. Well, they go after people on bikes, the very reason again. They can't yeah it's a mouse, yeah and so like it's. It's you on a bike with a light is a laser pointer to so so it I was like how close were you use about five feet and if you've ever seen him by the way, because the
and I did see- and I have big balls. I was in a car, but when I saw was huge, it's a lion and they just walk and he was walking with a purpose across the road like, like I'm sure, he's about to eat some. It's a real problem. California is banned, hunting of them. And in some places banned use of dogs. You need dogs to hunt down 'cause, otherwise we'll never find whatever the dogs, I mean the dogs bay them. They bark that, from a tree and the person comes along that shoots him. Sometimes dogs get attacked, though it does. How did that story on it? So I'm not so happy about that either. But now, when you, In the words you have a gun, there was guy with us, have a gun, everybody kept saying you got a gun. That was, you should have a gun around now. I know I know I would never know right now. I know I had a. We had a ranger in this. In he's also, he is the big foot. Robert Liederman, AIDS, Ranger and he's a I say, big put into Just- is really sweet. Guy huge help on the movie actually and-
and you know it's like three four in the morning and he's like you know, I'm a right or two when I go, oh really good. What do you write? Twilight like oh yeah, right tween between novel set in the bigfoot world? Is it's a coming of age story and like twilight so as to big for last fall in love, young young big? For it, a young big foot, the person not know people fall in love in the world. I know: what's the name is like Yeti or not this week ago. This is this. Is my. Air hose like this. Guy is the only thing keeping me alive tonight I was very. I was very happy that he liked the movie again. You know these were the folks in the community yeah Steven Stafford up in Bigfoot books. If you saw the
in the movies is the last thing I'm going to say about the towel. Towel goes very authentic. It's like I heard that yeah well, that sounds that they yeah rightly connect with the. How well that's the thing like you. Listen to that stuff too. Okay, let's forget the passing game, one for us, but you this, how much stuff? No! No! No! I don't! I don't think there's no evidence of bigfoot exist and I don't think that Bigfoot doesn't exist. I think that the Patterson Gimlin Cokes, or a guys that bullshit artists, I met people when I was up in the Pacific NW that new, the address, Paterson New, the other due to Bob giving Heronemus zero. This guy wore the suit and they said those guys were bullshit artist, they're always trying to make money and they've been trying to do it for a long time. But someone else make a suit. They had some Let's make a suit and it didn't work, and so they had to say who made that suit. Then the fuck knows. But you know what comes in suit is an amazing suit for not that good. Here's. The problem everybody: this is what everybody wants to say that it's really good, but here's what's realistic, it's blurry as fuck
so you're not getting a real, accurate, crisp version of what you're saying you're getting this mushy version of it, and so everybody wants attributed to muscles and this move. Meant to like there's no design. No cost of that. I would buy that if you would show me a high resolution Crystal clear video of what we're looking at but you're. Looking at blurry trees, the trees look blurry as fuck. You can't make We have the very specific branches or the texture of the bark. So what you Looking at when you're saying it looks so good, you look at blurry thing that might be tits. That might be a flaw in the costume that might be his ass or it might be worth a fucking diaper under a gorilla suit, I'm leaving No, no, I think pull it out again. Let's watch one more time. I want to get back to the breast stabilized I think, that's very weird! It's my it's weird, but it's not impossible to hi. No, it's not!
Maybe they really well here's the thing. Maybe this they would feel like Bigfoot is way larger than a person. So you just pretend to be a female bigfoot because Bob Haram a six foot. Five is too small to be rather than saying this isn't so they give them tickets that's way more likely than they filmed big foot. Right way more Lauren right. You say that now what Bigfoot do you? What evidence? Do you by then there's a lot of things that are interesting. First of all, the footprints with the dermal ridges, that's fascinating, because that's incredibly difficult to fake see I'm looking at man, you know there's so blurry. Look how blurry everything is. It's all washed out! Look at that tree. You don't know what the fuck that tree really looks like you can't see shit. You can't see me I think this is a bad version. This is the best version you can get man, it's just blown up when you're
okay everything in the desert, you want you want I'm shot on Red now. All you want LAS call backs to be the dp. Do be honest. Look at the trees you're looking out for a day, one on there and look at the trees in front of you can't even see any definition, raspberries therein meal penalties right now and- and it says that he says, I'm outta here show more. That looks real to me. Jesus Christ, you're crazy, one more time, looking where you're, looking at your looking at incredibly blurry shit, you're, looking incredibly blurry trees that are all washed out and everyone going to tribute all this musk, literature and definition, you barely know what you're looking at here. Why does this hold up so my day over the ends? Why look at you and I right now, what world it doesn't hold up? It's just a foot of film that has not been authenticated or or refuted it just hasn't been
'cause science hasn't really spent any fucking time examining what about God, damn bigfoot the? What the Yeti, fresh. No. Now the Russians spent a lot of time. Examining exactly that, yes! Well, they were fucking with us. Ok, it's ridiculous, like it still limits real. Let them waste your time. So third time on this moment, then, if you're so pose, dermal ridges are fascinating. That's passing the Melbourne Some dna is fascinating fact, on the show. We just had a geneticists go over that yeah, but that's the stuff that people could be bullshit, calling bs. It could but the the the deal is, though this guy was a geneticist and overwrite the data, and it was his conclusion based on his understanding of genetics. Is a family was a like a accomplished in an assist but and have not published in any real thing other than their own. No that's because they couldn't get public.
And we are so far down. No, it's! No! It's because he's like this is a letter footage. This is like this is when the nine checks out. It's look. It's a fascinating subject. You want, you want insight on. My life are wrong. This Melba Ketchum woman or if it's a hoax, but when a geneticists says that he finds the information to be compelling, then I have to listen, because I'm too fucking Stew to understand who's right and who's wrong? Now? Did you ever see any of the story of Jimmy Stewart with the Yeti finger? Stewart Jimmy Stewart yeah he's he smuggled that what was supposed to be a Yeti finger, uh, the Himalayas Anna wives, underwear. Not she wasn't. It wasn't in her pants, but I mean
in her underwear, honey gonna have to keep this in your yeah. This is a hard to do anything. You think it's hard getting weeding out. I need to be moist thing here. Is that no it wasn't, it was in it and or underwear drawer, and they got it all the way to England. Now that has been proven not to be a yeti for what was I I can't member, but remember that it's it had dna testing done to it. Jimmy Stewart it Yeti I you know you know uhm, you know what it works for me is a lot of the the audio recordings. Well, obviously, 'cause talking about that in the movie, and that is what works for me. Is you know I love listening to them. I it's funny you were talking about ufos. I think it's funny that people will go. Where is the footage? Yeah? Well, there's a ton of footage on ufos now that you can't rap your brain around yeah. Ok, here's some interest, something interesting about the Yeti finger. They said the dna test
have found it to be human bone. Well, here's what's interesting, though, search wife, smuggler human, but they think that these things are fucking human. It does I mean that that's wrong. The people that I thought that they thought that this was like some sort of like a Ranga, Tang giant rat type thing, but no, they think it's like that that hobbit that home of Florence this year record of that yeah little tiny man jury found the island yeah. Well, that was a human yeah. Well, that's that's! You know the native Americans up in the Pacific Northwest just it. You know. With a you know, some of some some of the tribes just treated the Sasquatch is a as another tribe. I mean it was
trees. Now, how have you gone on that and then this rabbit holes in the amount of people who did the disappearing in our parks? No, there is no federal database set up for people who go missing in the parks and it's I can remember the number it's huge there's a guy off. Who wrote a book about it? It's really fast. Do they think these are yetis or He doesn't even go down that road. He just says why is it it's the? We should look it up. I don't know what the number is. He a were any he's saying who what is this? why isn't there an unaware where all these people gone? I can't I feel really well it's easily? They could starve to death. I mean you get lost in the woods and you can get a lot easier, but the weird part is the FED's not taking the time to have a database. Actually, I'm a friend his dad died in the woods yeah we went hiking and then the the fog rolled in and he got a final eventually yeah yeah. I think that in for
for a long time to, but he you know once I am now out in the woods like like, we were eight. What happens to your mind when you are out there? That's pretty funny to me. Well, it's it's very. Did you stay out of all that we didn't sleep in the woods we decide to stay in a hotel that was in town of our anyway yeah, but just being, around there at night when you're in those woods. Okay, even in the day when you go into those woods, you're gone, we were in Mount Rainier, you go into those words and you there's it's another world as well as Elk that bound in front of you and they're all you know: five, six hundred pound animal jumping and yeah, that's weird! When you run into animal, I saw that up in willow, Creek and their unit there that that aren't afraid of you, that's the weird, but I don't know what the you are: yeah
yeah they've never seen one of you living in those fucking woods, which was pretty fun 'cause couple of guys. It was really funny 'cause we were at allows camp which, if anybody knows that's really close to that, and one of the guys goes because we had two women, the actress and producer in uh. I never had woman here before this is around a campfire in the Melanite. I go fellas, I'm Have you read that season when the rape and starts yeah, you should come and say that, even if it's true keep that should do yourselves on no use your women out here, men, women out here. So as far as in the things that they've collected, like the the UFO, you know quote unquote evidence to me. The most interesting is the howls that are really all right, sure
meet Howls yeah and the dermal ridges they found terrifying. Like sounds great like like in the middle of the night, and and it's it's awesome- I was once before the keynote speaker got up one of the guys he meant to these two guys like an opener. You know this the feature that bad, but it and the MC so basically the feature brings up ufos while he's doing is Bigfoot pitch in about a third of the room like a boy I'm gonna take a piss. Will this be cool bigfoot community at like make fun of wood dockers yeah would not can like they're just gonna. Would not yeah yeah come on well, I said you know these guys. Is he upset if you smoke tobacco in them and there's you know those people with crying babies and making bacon? Then
you know the one guy saying to the other guy that you never find bigfoot because you smoke I've seen Bigfoot three times, never going to see big because you smoke that's fucking. Demand- and that was like wondering like how is this guy feel about grass, does he think that big foots down with grass bigfoot, probably attracted to weed that's well I have notice that if you start a few fellow Sasquatch hunters a little could pass. Maybe a little break that squashing when your highs probably way more fun, hey. You know, like God, Sobre Squash, and I go much I desire. I really think folks can't rap their brains around how many millions of acres there are still in, like California and Oregon and Portland that are completely like, plane goes down and no one finds it. I think you're totally right and I think that's one of the things that we try to capture on the show when we went up into Mount Rainier. I was like the way I describe the trees. I like it's like a box of Q tips, you know how you get a box, Q tips and you know they're, just
shoved in there. That's how it recently yeah you're not getting through that you're going to get through that guy going with this one step right and one step left and once but you're going to like slowly have to cease all your way through. All these trees like this is incredibly dense, ray in forest and there's thousands of square miles. Thousands and you can't just get to the middle of it, there's no, it's not trails through all of it. So if something is living up there, it could see you coming a fucking mile away, hide for so easy, especially if it had better senses than us which, if it lives in the woods, it's got to have like animal senses right course, probably as it does senses like as A dog does sure dogs would be able to hear you and see you coming a human being yeah, but dear I see you coming a mile away. They hear you coming a mile away. Well, I uh. So so show me or you're not trying to talk too much about the show you did. Who did you go out with
I'm not trying to much better with these guys from Washer the Washington State, Sasquatch Research team. This guy? Was it a blast? Did you have a good time? There were great guys, they were hardcore, dedicated squatters and they took us to some various spots and we saw some weird shit. We saw some trees that were arranged in some really peculiar positions in the middle of the well when you're gone, we also saw some trees that were broken in the middle, which is really weird 'cause. There's no there's no wind inside this forest, your deep deep in the forest, and you see, trees that are snapped in half seven feet up like something grabbed it and snapped it. I don't know what the fuck it was. I mean I don't know what happened, but it's weird
do that, but to them at Squatch. Let's there's an area in Alaska. I don't know if you're familiar with it, how deep you went with your bigfoot research. I have not gone to Alaska. The trees. Trees are uprooted, so you can find the photo. These two trees in Alaska that they believe Bigfoot approved. Have you got on the ground not yet again to a gig up there in two weeks which which found I'm doing a gig in anchorage yeah? Well, the anchorage is really it's beautiful, but yeah. Maybe that's why I'm going off the grid? That's great delete your going. Now I mean I did two dates in February in Anchorage you kind of reassess your career choice is the second time you go hello Anchorage how cold was it. It was so cool, but it's it's. This weird thing
Those guys were in shorts and sneaks 'cause. You just go in and out a heated things and it's dry there's like snow places that never goes away and stuff those trees there picked up by their roots and driven into the ground, and no one knows how the fuck it was done. They know that it wasn't done with heavy equipment because there's no like apparently there's no marks on the trees that correspond to the use of heavy equipment. Now, what do you think that that allegedly I don't know I mean here's the thing when you hear the stories you hear about and see this any other photos of the damage better ones, the guy I've seen some different ones are more in detail, but the they don't. You don't know how much you're dealing with just people that are in love with you know sure, but I I you know there's there is
there's a cynicism that you can have and then there's the question of of what? If and and- and you can even be say, all this stuff is B S, but I do love the the what if right, right now yeah the it's it's Jane Goodall thinks the re, yeah, Jane, Goodall, yeah. Sure, that's legit! That's when that's when that's when the owner Gameshark guys when I pull that Jane Goodall. She really you know, I I mean, like you, know, sharks, you know they're all back. They. Rollback before they bite you, then why, like yeah well, people that it's bullshit and you start pulling out Jane Goodall. That's all you know that's again the the nine she likes to say this movie, the Willow Creek, that's what the name of this movie is that we're talking about it. I can announce it yet it got into some bigger festivals.
It'll happen soon, and I was just in the movies, I'm I'm. I think that there's you know that you can make a good trailer for the movie and I think you could, but I think it's different than the other movies is fucking great. I would go see that if I was on date It's a great date night movie, it's fucking, fun, it's a fun and obviously I'm very biased, 'cause. I love you and I'm a bigfoot dork. So it was a double car. Nation, but I I enjoy the out of it thanks ma'am thanks and welcome. You welcome. I am you know it's funny. I just you know, I'm starting now to make about a movie a year, different sizes, different budgets, different people and then anytime. I do other work for other folks and I do stand up like I'm about to go. Do patents, new comedy central, special direct that, oh, that's great, you didn't dress with Stan especially yeah. Where is he filming that he's going to be a comic con?
I mean that is really yeah. That is, that is like, if like stack, the deck yeah, exactly like if you're one of those giant sothern cathedrals that holds you know the mag. Churches and then Christ actually just came out of the floor, why he just showed up that's what patent that comic con is going to be like. I love Patton, His writing is fucking. Fun, yeah, he's brilliant, so so that kind of stuff like if I can work with the comic and try to you know and- to make it easier when they show up so they're, not about the you know. I mean the yeah local heads. You know that that that that makes me really happy. That's just a satisfying, believe it or not as going out and doing a show? Oh that's awesome, because yeah 'cause, I love comics, and I don't I don't I don't like it when people make it harder. You know I mean, like you know, just before you go on tv, everybody saying the worst thing you're going.
Good question. Are you going to do good? My friend Tony, like yeah so like he was on Letterman. I love to tv. So I sent him flowers when he's on Letterman. It just said: don't fuck this up and then and then what time he was taping and uh, tv show, and it was years ago and it's I go tony I'm coming down there tonight to watch you take because I really don't know I'm bringing Robin Williams. So don't fuck this up and he just thinks you're my friend. He doesn't know that you're funny. So really do good he's, like you're a fucking ever and then, of course you know you do that to a guy and they go up in there they're laughing 'cause you subconsciously is going well Bob, wouldn't back out, it's not going to tell me I'm going to fuck and blow? If you know I mean you need a safety zone, you need. You need, friends that aren't driving in nuts before you go on and let's see
like what I like about what you've done with your? I hate the worker ear? But I guess that's what it is: you know clearly seems so formal. Yes, we've expressed yourself. What I like about it is that you have not box yourself into any one corner like this bigfoot thing is this fucking, freaky, horror movie. That's why I love this like so funny. It's like people like you, know the perception and then you make it and it's really fun to watch for but the, but I was going to say it, but also like it's. You need direct. Mr Pal show a running a ranch Humana directing Kimmel yeah yeah. I mean you you're doing all this weird, but you're doing you're you're equally competent at all of it. It seems like you're, equally enthusiastic about all yeah. Well, thank allows you to like direct someone, stand up and enjoy it as much as doing your own standard sure also enjoy yeah. I I it's it's I'm pretty lucky now now you know the other side of it is is like it's, it's not it's! The
probably the least secure I've ever been financially but there's something awesome. Every time you jump off and you go hey. What am I going to do next yeah and every time it works out and some hair brained way. You know I mean I gave the commencement speech at my daughter's school at Hampshire College. You know, and I was I really well first, I went up and I just add an Oprah speech word for word. You know that whenever I'm nervous I always go to Oprah and then it was all of making it in as a blah blah blah dreams and hopes, and I got this- doesn't apply to any you, kids, you gotta you guys gotta quit as often as possible in life until you end up someplace that you don't
leave. You know and that and you could smell the parents, stomach acid. You know they spend all this money and education. That's so true! That's an actual amazing advise! You know it is many times you can until you find something you don't want to leave. You know, and and like there's a weird thing for guys our age are you're you're younger than me, but where we were doing all different things and- and you know I we enjoy animal and then I'll send this age we come on to our own and it's uh and the the freaky part like after world's greatest dad. I wrote five screen plates, I mean I just write. Screen plays all the time and- and someone goes well who are you competing with and I'm like the grim fucking reaper man, I don't like sitting looking over at you know competing with. That is not an interesting question that if you produce anything, create something you're competing against someone to create it, what a shitty mentality but common. Now it's a common thought yeah and as soon as you can remove those guys and make it it.
You know yourself instead of other people and you're, not judging what you make by their standards and stuff, it's a it's a it's a pretty awesome place, yeah, that's the thing about being, and you know a a grown man to is like you get to a point. We are comfortable in your own life and you're comfortable with what you do and you know what's good and what you've done. You've had enough feedback by what you've done that you enjoy when you've done, that you did for money and then you get to this sort of like a place where you like, okay, I know what I'm doing here yeah and I'm on a pink clad. You know when we, you know, there's gigs, I take for the bread and there's things that do, but you know it does make it a little easier when you're sitting there, you know and you're asking it getting What what is your? What is your police academy, I'm interested in that like what is going on factor, fear, factor, okay and you and your polite, I'm sure when people talk about it I enjoy doing it. You know. Fear factor is nothing, there's nothing artistic about fear factor, but there was all I had a lot of great moment, but there are a couple questions that you've heard a million times how you
and what is it you can do every eat? Any of that, so hey Joe, is fear effective for you yeah, but I have a very healthy attitude about it. You know, I'm happy the people enjoy the show. You know, and I understand what it would be like if I enjoy the show- and I ran to me- I'm right say some stupid to write stays referred to view, but I because I wouldn't know what else to say: I'm an idiot, you know, but you but you, but you don't did test that we do our best and smile through yes, but this person doesn't realize the third person that stop me today at the airport. Anne asked me at the as you went to your gate now, you know what it is. It's always you know what it is. It's the security people when you Can you beat that You know there was that movie with that horse at you. Did that movie that horse? You did the movie the beer,
how you do that shit all right! Now, it's worse 'cause! They go. I don't know looking at me and I never heard of him. Do the voice. It's the word. Jimmy Campbell loves to bust. My balls harder than anyone about the voices doing this show and you know doing the covers I over the age to live off. Anything and thank you, that's Larry is Jimmy, went and got a star, and that was that I hadn't seen in awhile, so I went and got and wear them. While you know I was very tight, so you got a star on the Hollywood. Bowl always really sweet. It was just a really. It was a real capper ask moment with everybody that guys that I've seen in and out of his life. You know it's really sweet to watch, but So that goes. You know I try to get you a star and I go what happened. They said Mam the pot,
the mystery quick survey to get it is another. It's another. Are you in Dan yeah and I was there. I go with the. What did you do shows like I do, the guy we assisted. You are dead and I said, I'm your wife and then and I was like I would have taken a dead star. I care. You know I woulda showed up in. Like Gore Makeup like I found the larious that they gave you a star dead. They gave you a star and then you showed up for what the fuck is going on. Coming out of, lower down live in this day and age mean everyone zombie obsessed it yeah. I just come in gourmet cup with maggots coming out of an eye socket she killed Maine Ok, that would be really funny. Man, especially I mean sure you get somebody in Hollywood to do it up really good. The walking dead style, we're yeah, realistic, short yeah I'll, be awesome. So I have a question you. What's the you, did this one episode? What what's the next one will be done, we're doing six? We we were picked up for six, a star.
July. Sixteen! So there's I had a similar idea, but what I wanted to do- and this was after shooting Willow- creek- I thought it would be funny to like go. Let's say I go. The Jersey Devil right, but I make it 'cause I I I'm interested in filmmaking. So I get Kevin Smith to go with me in a tent and we go and sleep out and look for the Jersey Day yeah. That would be great and then you just keep going. But it's always like you know. John Waters is Baltimore and we go and we go I'm going this. This haunted house in Baltimore. Again, you know it just came from the way: I'm doing is some of them I'm doing with comedians, like I did one with Duncan Trussell. He went with looking for big foot with now. Okay, and are you should fear, is going to go to a transhumanist con come conference with me in New York?
I don't know chance, people that want to download consciousness into computers, like Robert Wyland sure sure, like all the people that are into robots and so he's going to go and do some of that with me too. So a lot of it were doing, I'm doing it like with comic friends, but it's cool to go. Have an open mind and just not be snarky, because here's the thing what people don't realize, all these different subcultures and stuff, they have a sense of humor yeah. You don't have to roll your eyes. You know I mean like there's a lot of labs and will creek from these guys, and they just you know they no they're making jokes they're, not you know yeah This is the guys that we were hanging out with up in Seattle and Mount Rainier. They were great guys and one of the guys had a great point. He goes hey. He had never seen bigfoot and he had been fascinated by it and he'd been looking. He said, listen if I don't ever
even see Bigfoot, I'm still camping, I'm enjoying the wilderness, I'm not having a good time because I enjoy it, makes me wonder why people get so aggressive about it will get aggressive about music yeah! That's true! Now that impressive about movie guy sucks, the aggressive about tv shows like how the fuck you watched it, I had now. It's actually so played out, but I had a story when I was directing Kimmel Show about Nickelback in the first time I tell the story I go, I go, and I was like I think making clinical back is is really happy at this point, but I really said I go: what's the band that sucks and the guy I mean a good nickel back. I go you Yes, they were on the show. Now, as it comma I going to see if that works tomorrow night and it does every time it's like. It's really funny that these guys, for some reason of the whipping boy of music understand that but confused
tell you I will. I will tell stories out of school that you know, the the manager of nickel back came into the booth and he goes don't shoot Chad from the front and I'm like. I don't even know what chat it. You know I I I figure out. That's the lead singer. This is: don't shoot Chad from the front. I like this 'cause of his nose just shoot him. No, she don't profile, just shoot him in the front. That's where I'm sorry, it's a shoe in the front no profile! That's why I said that ok, so he leaves, and all the cameramen are my best friends when your television directed at so you really bond with and there like on a touch. Hey Bob, can I direct you know you letting the manager nickel vector act. You know they really busting my balls. So if see, the Kimmel Show, as this show goes off the air, the,
bands playing right, and so I go yeah, there's there's a profile shot and just as I go to the the ad I go. Tell me when I have ten seconds left. She goes. Ok in just ten seconds ago, shoot the no. Six K. Let's go is an infirmary direction and like- and I did just a bit of montage of- is no, they got ready, came a five ready for any three ready six ready to. They did it and we just we just- went off the air with these guys and super quiet in the headsets in the guys go uh? hey man. What are we going to do now and I'm like uh? I don't play over that I'm getting in my car have a good weekend, guys anybody else you! Well! but it didn't make the West Coast broadcast that he censored the nose? Well, I'm sure people flipped out 'cause. I did that something that I did like that to another band, and I have his fucking nose. It's not that bad
ugly. Again, though, if someone didn't come into the booth and tell me what to do, I wouldn't even have done the tribute to his nose. What do you attribute the the whole hate for nickelback too. To is it there to smooth and they too polished to poppy I don't understand why. I just suddenly everybody gangs on nickelback when there's so much more crap in the world yeah. What is it I don't know it's just weird. Well, you know what it is I'll tell you. It is: there's a safety in bullying. You know if we all decide that we're going to bully Nickelback, then you're, not boo, or just in Bieber yeah yeah, whoever fill in the blank liking him or disliking, Justin Bieber. I don't have that kind of time. You know you know I mean I don't even know why you know he's not for me, although he does being again you like fifty year old man, you know yeah, but here's yeah, and I just that you you know I I I think of him in terms of like Donny Osmond. When I was growing up, you know I I you know I was three
and we're it out and then, when I got old as I had them, as was not big yeah, I in that weird you in a meeting all the values for nice didn't show the the Donny and Marie Show- and I had it done many doll that I used to bring out a puppet and do and and do this so stupid and do weird things I do like a public show the yeah. Well, you know I'm getting fish, so I'm getting fish much of a stretch for me to pull out of Donny Osmond my uh they stand up? There was no jokes. I mean it's nice that you like to meet Bob because I had material then, but it was just doing one weird thing after another. I was super influenced by Andy Kaufman and Steve, Martin and stuff like that. So so, if I did well, it would kind of go well and then sometimes when I did bad as show go off the rails, you know it just
and all the other guy is AIDS when you guys were. It was since the that that comedy environments such a like a a hot environment, but it also the Boston, comedy environment which we supported originality engine alley was, was really huge, yeah I'll store, weird. It was nice that that, like, if you were to rivet, if you didn't get work, you know so and you it on sure yeah. It's shit on by Ellie appears nobody just let that slide. They kept a high standard which is difficult for people. Do to maintain a high standard, but for people that like? You know. You will realize that you're gonna have to be judged by your peers, seeing as you can get a little weird court of your peers yeah. So you you don't do this, you don't do that you don't other people's Acsi. Then you go on stage. Then we're going to go sit and have, though well some uh, the toughest worse crowds in the world yeah. So it was a. It was a good Nick's comedy stop animals
play the parents SAM's I had my own. I had a thing called at SAM's at and then we mean Steven Wright and would the room. What the hell was that I started out of the paradise stitches. My first gig yeah. Let's go shopping, my question for you: do you think anybody going to come along and, as a committee in ever be what Steve Martin was do you know saying like or do you think we're too fractured as a society be like my mother, weighed in on Steve Martin know she thought he was funny. You know, sampling and you do as well, so it went across the board of actually. Yes, I'm saying my check out for his calf again is squeaky
clean and I think funny everybody Brian Regan, but these guys appeal to everybody but they're, not the phenomenon they're, not on the cover of the rolling stones. Yeah right, a failure, I don't think I don't think I don't think it could happen. I mean that there's certain things I don't think can happen anymore because of the digital age. That sounds good or bad, but I'm just saying I don't know about that, because Dan Cook crack through because the digital age although his was like more of like a teeny bopper sort of a crowd like I was doing, eighteen thousand seat arena's. You know that was very Steve, Martin ask. But, but when I was growing up Steve Martin, you had to deal with. You know my parents, if they were alive, would not know who Dane Cook was yeah, but that's just cook. I'm saying he he broke through his day in Israel. People that'll be huge, but I don't think they'll be people that that that are so huge that that everybody in the family knows them and their phenomenon. Wonder me, you know that I don't think it could happen to get it. You might be right and do we are definitely more fresh
and in the never before in in, in a way, it's a good thing, because there's a lot more audience for more obscure people. That would never had an outlet before and I think that's great, I think that's great too, but I do worry about like the our exposure to our our world. It gets a minute or maybe I'll just say for myself. Am I gonna go to BBC and learned today about the you know about the events. Where am I going to click on Bigfoot Sighting go down a rabbit over? What do you think is going to happen? I did the same. I think there's something you know when you have a newspaper now, it's like I'm an old guy yelling get off my lawn, but you had a newspaper I I go through. I I'm interested, then I didn't know that was going on in China And- and I I I I think the digital age makes it it's a little bit too much you. You can find news that agrees with your outlook, which is weird the new yeah should not be. You know it should be, it's never impartial,
but it should be. It should be somewhat yeah. You could. If you have confirmation bias, you could support it really easily on the internet, just stick into a bubble. Yeah, bye, love like never. When I'm ego surfing- and I see someone called me- a Lib tarde- and you know I'm like I'm so out of There- a Lib Tarde, Tarde yeah when someone calls you a liberal, that's hilarious, self, hating, liberal liberal is one of the weirdest sort of insult ever because if you look at the ok, let's look at the official definition of it. Yes, official definition of liberal, ok,
where is a this? Is the lead guitar needy? Look it up in the dictionary it says to open, open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values. That's hilarious that sounds pretty positive, unprejudiced, I'm bigoted, broad minded, open minded and lightened permissive, free, free and easy and easy going. Those are the only thing that seems to be threatening me would be to folks is this regarding what was it? Disregarding traditional value has see that that's very threatening to people. There's people that treat the constitution is if it's like, the like a tent, the ten commandments like that that that there's, no, you know, word checks and balances. You know we can change in the just things, but this so people that are selling grain. That's really scary! You know, I think, there's also the real problem with liberalism is. A lot of people know that, folks,
naturally are inclined to be lazy, fucks and if you give people an easy way out, they'll take it. So as soon as you start advocating giving P will a door helping people out or people again, I'm up get that fucker up. It's like there's a part of people that resets immediately resent there's a resentment against like the idea is that liberals are not in our world World war. Two! It's like hey, you're down on your luck. You know gee! I love. And here's this here's. There was a much much much harder world that they were dealing with and it was only a couple of decades after the fucking depression and people are much more used to living together, scraping to get by your parents almost starved to death twenty years ago, and they all have stories about it yeah. My gram, there: horrible stories about the depression yeah, my my own man lived through the depression and that'll make yeah well, my phone has a whole another can of worms, but house is mine. The
you know what it would we be sitting here talking now, yeah you! Never you never be a comic. I think that's one of the number one pieces of I've never had a comic that didn't have a up life. Yeah, I don't think I've ever met one. Basically, I think my act. It was me going on stage going mom. Do you hear me, yeah, it's one hundred percent, but it's funny how this is like my favorite art form comes out of that and bounce. It seems is the only way to achieve. It is like to achieve it correctly like something there has to be some sort of a deficit to create this. You know this this it's a reaction to a lack of something. It's not just a natural progression from I was kind of guy in high school, and I figured let me try out that stand up thing. You know Well, here's the thing it's! What we're missing is that those times that we bombed, we probably
you never got back on stage right, but we we eat it and then go back up again because it's horrible, it's a crazy, weird thing: you know. Like often the funniest guy in the room is not the comedian yeah I mean in many comedians got then the the the illness or the Nats to go up there or both yeah yeah. You know something that happened in lately on stage, and this is not me lying that all of a sudden for the first time in thirty years, I'm sometimes having fun up there. I was always panic the whole time I really yeah something new like all of a sudden, I'm I I don't know man I'm on this new thing, like sometimes with the right crowd, actually enjoy it and and yeah? You know it's a new new thing. This is not funny that something that will enjoy so much to come, see and it looks like you're having so much fun up there, but for a lot of folks, it's just tear
her and fear and worry about bombing and just fucking try to get when it's over fuck two more shows tomorrow: yeah yeah yeah, even if you're killing every show you know, sometimes it's a it's a new thing. Suddenly it dawned on me. What was a new thing that to me is like these people have an expectation, and I'm not doing that. But how can I warm up to them? How can I include them? So it's not just me saying this is what I see the the world. Is this? What I see is funny, if you know like a cram it not saying compromise what I believe in, but suddenly I was doing like a little bit of crowd work that was in like you know how do you know when you're finished, you know you know to ask
so you just sit around and poke around talk to folks and it's good. It's been different. It's in made. My am of my made doing, stand a lot more fun, that's awesome, and I I love when people like Re Finder, the joy of of performing or find it well, it cause most funny still and I'm like what is he doing? How is he doing that? You know? Is he funny? He doesn't have an opening act, yeah yeah, so he doesn't and hour and a half at all everybody since down here it was actually Louis. That said, there is like a c case like he's like go see because it's going to do a ton of material, you're, gonna, think twenty minutes went by he still funny and and and lone behold. Yeah I got on. I was like this is weird I wanted to be be enter and he ruined it, and maybe it's because you just enjoy the art form as long as like stand up to me seems like when I feel like when I'm like really tuned into it, I'm as much of I'm like a passenger, and I feel like it's a group hypnosis thing like you,
rock people, and you know how to do the bits. Rieti know where it's going. You know the setup and you hold the pause and it becomes like this big and if you tune in to that frequency and nourish it as long as you continue to nourish it, it seems like something that would always be there. It seems like when people lose, it is when they take a couple years off, I go back again or something happens and well ordered, and I think I think it's maybe the obvious it's like when people just this works, I'm gonna do it and just get out of here tonight on my life get the check. You know I mean so 'cause. I know I have done that you know, but this is different, a new he's way up there and I go all right uhm, it's not a mistake. You're here and instead of just thing out those new ideas, you know that's usually what I do like the first couple minutes, whatever the new ideas. Is it pat and then I do the act that I go. I go to worked out, it was, it has been new, you know, maybe people like I'll see
you know, I keep doing it and see what we see folks like it, but you are you more comfortable as a person now yeah yeah. So is that anything yeah I'm not like rainbows and crap in unicorns all day I mean I I get. I get dark, but I will say the majority of that I'm I'm happy and I'm happy when I'm making stuff so now. I know that well, okay, greenlit. This movie or no one did this and that I pick up my you know. I start writing it doesn't matter if it gets made or not at that process is very freeing. Yeah there's something about creating things where especially people enjoy those things. If you could put those things out and they can like people can like actually get like a like when you like so say, someone goes to see Willow Creek. If you go and see this movie, which gonna get is like a feeling, you gonna sit down and
things going to happen in front of you and you're going to you're going to have all this feeling attached to and you as the pretentious word artist, but you uh is an artist like as someone who created this gets to sit there and realize that your effort, your thought, your focus. All this, you piece it together, you edit it up and boom and then deliver it, and then you get to watch all this positive reaction. You just want to go, do more, we just want continue that cycle of well for me. I think it's kind of like I keep making these movies and it's really exciting, especially like the last four when, after the movie, people are chatty they're, like rather than ever, member, which happens, it's really sweet and an Ann
guess. Basically, what I'm doing is I'm shooting out of flares same a do you do you guys see this? Do you guys feel this? Is this right? Is this what what's going on there? Wouldn't this be cool right right, that's what I'm doing and when I make a movie. Well, that's the way to do it. Man, I mean your your ex. It's it's a it true form of expression like instead of you saying. Oh, this will sell but hey if I box this with that and adding a funny black guy boom, I'm fucking done in the voice yeah. Instead, you, like you, know what man I'm fucking into Bigfoot. Let's make this weird thing crazy movie about big. Well, that's why I gotta say about my wife: that's really funny! She says she says, go you know,
How old are you bigfoot? I should have you. Let me drive around for a week. So is that what you did to write it you just drove around, for it really wasn't even like writing. It was really just just I'm going to go. I'm going to talk to people, I'm just going to do this with no agenda wow. I knew that someday I'd probably make a movie, but it was really more just like do you know freeing that in So I take like five six days and not have you know that you know? I still have to do a couple phone Yrs, which is funny. You know they go. Where are you I'm looking for Bigfoot? that's a little area yeah we do in phone as for gigs, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah at the jukebox. But right now I mean it's it you know, so you go out. Are you take eleven days ago? Where did you decide to start? Did you have a spa No. No. I drove up first to Santa Cruz
in the Sierras Tusan. I've drove around there at Santa Cruz is amazing. Yeah! It's really. It's really really awesome. You know I just went were like kind of a kind of poked around and and new certain sites were people. I'd seen you know heard, or you know event seen as a and and and them and that's again I ended up in Willow Creek. I I didn't go up the happy camp, which I probably will still I mean that's another, pretty assess how you can't yeah it's it's above Orleans, it's above Bluff, creek and everything. It's a It's still another place that there's a lot of scratch activity. Isn't there a bunch of different names for those areas to that are like monkey names in a yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah canyon, yeah yeah in Oregon, yeah, very strange? How many? Why yeah and in the end in Mount we near up in that area, there's a bunch of names that are the one of the north american names for Bigfoot, there's a bunch of
canyons, are named after that like so, this guy starts talking about all these different areas, and it's got this weird north american. You know didn't name in it right and any said will that's when we just that's why we started our big foot's watching we just started going all these places in the north. American Indians had never affidavit but like that is fucking crazy. Like they named spots again, yeah. This is makes you think yeah and it's also, but when all said and done a a you know it's a whenever you're subculture, you're going to get ridiculed and picked up on, but, like you said, it's just camping, it's gamman, it's fun, do something silly about. I mean I went with Duncan Trussell. We ate pot candies and had a fucking blast. That's what I was wondering about that 'cause. I know somebody Guys are high, of course, but there were very worried about what big foot you know, because big fat legs different smells and yeah right MIKE and the and the eating it they got
eat it. Well, if they're smart, they would eat it, but even if the, if you eat strong we'd like yeah, you open up like I remember one time I don't even say his name but we're on Wayne and he had brought a Tupper Ware thing and he's fucking carry on with weed cookies.

Maybe I'll have your sometimes, but so is big yeah, I think, is a three eight three bills when he was the gorilla, so Rick Baker builds in a gorilla suit. That's one to grant to me they're like real hair, and it's got this whole garage Uh in muscle structure now Tony goes to like hockey, games and stuff, and people get mad. Fuck. You girl, you're, not the real gorilla. This bad were fucking horrible. We animals so animals, so so Tony the real this it's got a better deal in county. It's got a guy that travels with these anvil cases in packs, it up and and and and so Tony's doing stand up. In the mean time with me, the an hops catching while he's doing the gorilla dates. Now the gorilla suit is not with us, but he's got this one z
big unit are that he wears under the gorilla suit and clearly he is having some chafing problems, so he goes and we're getting search through customs coming out of Canada and there's all this like white powder and rocks that form from his sweat from the crotch, sweat the custom guy licks his finger. He picks up one of the rocks and it taste it. If I'm is balls, no, it was a boy of rock of baby powder from from his bowl, this bowl sweat- and I become kind of? I think I'm witty all I do is I go his balls at Sears here, so you can get out balls against the rock his tongue. He was just immediately is like I don't know
these things like he could tell like Bob other than old man dick and it's just like what the fuck is going on it was the best face- Ventilating. We we are actually 'cause. I love. Do you like Tony? I love Tony and I were just holding each other up, we're just two guys, just wrapped around each other crying. What is the furious furious furious. What the fuck, because people that put it in his mouth, something by the way he licks the finger and then he's got all the way down and we both look hook, liquor and snapping location so funny. That was the best thing I thought it was coke. He thought was catching sold adding at the bag. Gotta big tasty he's got a big collar he's going to get kicked upstairs. That is so funny.
I don't EV told me one of the most important things that I ever learned about driving 'cause. He was driving back and forth from New York to Boston, there's along. Thing and he was doing it a lot. I forget what he was working on, but he's driving back and forth a lot and I go honey How do you do that without going crazy? He goes just goes in. He goes when I'm in the car. I just say now. This is what I'm doing it goes this. Don't say man. I wish I wasn't doing this and I could be doing something else. I just say this- is what I'm doing and that's uh. I thought about it that way and was like you, you can do things, you don't want to do like that, and just Have it in your head. I am I have. This is what I'm doing my wife had a friend who he was that he sold ice cream and ice cream track in a play. Can the straw over and over? Is that then it that that that that the the the the the the the the the date that it it it it it that all day, long Turkey in the Straw- and he said you know what I did. I said I'm going to make that my favorite song.
Became- became his favorite jam wow. That's madness, yeah yeah ice cream truck. That would be the best job that be horrible. You could deal with a lot of shitty kids. They would def make you want to not have kids yeah and I also be like giving kids ice cream with an aside and it's mostly art people just long weed out of ice cream truck. So I don't know if you're lucky did the Van Halen son. You know it's funny, you grow up like I, I grew up. You know I was the first generation of like you know the Ramones, you know they they I I got. I got to see them live actually would help build the p a's. That's how I'd sneak in the bars was under age. Ramones is punk rock and all this stuff and every build again sell this stuff. As it kept coming up like you know, then, later on, the kids were in the Van Halen. I'm like that's, not punk rock. You know, as in Sorry, but I was
down in Baja with a bunch of buddies and they were all surfing and I'm like the and that I mean we're in the middle of no, where like about about five six hours now yeah- and you know we just just have you ever gone on Mexican. No, I think it's a little too sketchy now, but there's nothing around there, any sir, with no ship records of famous surf site and uh, you know an were driving along the side of a cliff and I'm driving. This jeep Anne were playing Panama from Vanallen fucking loud and everybody's fucked out, except me, I'm the Disney dumb. You know Joe sober fucking butt. I I was fine. I like him and I get Van Halen, but I only got I got what was the song to push through the yeah? It was Panama, that's a great song, it's just too loud and stars, and these guys are screaming and as I keep speeding going over gigantic potholes they're all thinking, they're doomed- and I was like- is again it's like
good and chaos I go now. I get Van Halen. Isn't that a funny thing that you do, though, that people do we all? Do it esp when you're young, where, if someone doesn't like what you like, you fucking angry. So what you like as shit like you hate them for liking. It here is an exclusive 'cause. I do tell a lot of yarns and they're all, but I have a lot of stories. Here's the story, I've, never told anyway, when I was opening for Nirvana. We were at here in LA so I don't know which form and I think it's the form I don't know but and Eddie Van Halen shows up and he's really fucking hammered and he wants the jam and Kurt his toe he flipped out like and even held once a jeez. They hide me so anyone to go up and shred yeah and he's hammer, and I go dude kit from one of your guitars, because because Kurt Play left handed right and I go- I will be a great you know he won't be able to play. It means
like he would figure it out like I got. This would be so funny really weird. Probably would we had David without coming here. He couldn't be fucking cooler. I met him one night at the comedy store. He was the greatest god. Just hanging out no pretense to see him in a bunny in the 80s they were going to purple rain made money and they were going to give him money and it was just saying: Crypto is just movie yeah yeah I went in and read from. Why did they never do that he's so charismatic? How do they know? give him a movie, that's what part too busy fucking everything, but there could be a movie there I think it's like look at him. You know, maybe you know what he's doing now where he lives in Japan. Ok, he lives in an apartment with his dog and he practices sword fighting all day. I'm not kidding by himself fascinating guy. We had him, First of all, the fucking guy wears overalls everywhere. He goes he's comfortable with his nipples.
Only just likes wearing overalls enjoys it. They bug your nipples. I haven't worn. A longtime coveralls are over all over you know when they have the little things like the farmers, where yeah clip up here and yeah now see look who's wearing overalls. You see that oh he's got a shared on here. I've honey, wearing a shirt. Now look overall solarius and so he he does his sword and practices. And is enough to be so crass, but he is, he set. I mean Financially, I'm sure he's God. Well, you never know much fucking money David Lee Roth must have Play David. Lee Roth is first of all he's very smart and I think he's also a savvy guy. Do not see him overindulging to the point of something like that. He likes living small. He shows up here by himself I mean some of the biggest rock stars of all time drives himself here shows up by himself, hey guys,
Nope no pretense comes in sit down, how's everybody, but a lot of a lot of folks that have long jevity. Do that. You know I mean, like I haven't seen him in a long time, but there was a period where I spent some time around. I sound like I'm just name, dropping all my stories, but but with David Bowie, and he would do that. He was now you silly well when I started talking, I know I know no, no, it is yeah. It is true. If you know data here, is that a story you've always it if you're in show is that these are the folks that you you, you become friend but not all of them, but you know sometimes share stories. I mean you're you're, you're you're, so you just told me, David Lee Roth story, but you also have a show when he came in to promote his show, has a podcast he was Japan. I guess he does it from Japan. It's fucking great great.
He gets up and says this. Does this podcast video podcasts, I think find find out what the address is. I don't know what the address and then he and then he swordfights. I think it cause it to the Dave TV or something like that. I remember he also. I heard this and this is true, but I I heard that when you would know this may because of a martial arts, he he with sweep the stage after the show. Really I heard that I don't know if it's true, I didn't ask him, but I could see doing something like that. Just just has a discipline yeah see him doing so he's a weird guy, though I want to show that's how I remember we were again with the Nirvana, but this is food in the simpler funny story about with them. One of the crew guys had worked with the new huge, had worked with TED Nugent and incur enjoyed hearing this story, because you know the new to hit the stage with an error ramp that he hit the this air ramp. You know like I not many would shoot him over the amp, but I guess like yeah, so you flying and while it with the guitar
just go shooting over in land which land on what he hit the stage. And how far would you fall from the top of the stack? Marshalls Holy shot off like a cannon so but apparently curtain, Jada, 'cause, eyewitnesses hearing the story about when he he clipped? The top of the speakers would like the his booty. And just ate shit and landed on his guitar component? Well, his knees are all fucked up. He ha Those really bad? Now he just had some serious knee up could be that air ramp Jesus. I had a match glad we don't have to go out that way, flying over the fucking, probably no boots on or something stupid right. You know every audience, you know red hot. You know I mean it's gotta be times where your poop over the app in the credits like yeah it is it there in a beer line, I'm trying to get him to do the podcast he's going to be at the Canyon club in July. Well, why? Why? Wouldn't I don't know,
I I shot an animal farm. Just to be friends, went deer hunting. Just so I can call my friend and now that's not why yeah, but I really would like to get him in he's a fascinating character of courses and his hunting show I watch hunting show you it's called spirit of the wild and he in is it the something he does. He go around the world or is it his backyard the same the part yeah. I see the latter the Kimmel Show is in Detroit. I pitched an idea that that nobody bit the idea was we were going to get the Nuge right, we're going to get TED an and then we're going to take like gear Mohan Uncle Frank and maybe someone else in global hunting. No, no, I was going to paint gun and then make them. You know the the hardest pray you know I mean and send them out in the streets and have ten new GEN uncle Frank. That's funny! You know,
you know is great. This is a snow storm. It would been so fun. You know that would have been really fun. These guys running away from nudes. Why it's with paintballs I mean, but it was in Detroit in the snow, yeah yeah that would've been hilarious. How is just in the eyes in Detroit this week and doing stand up, and then I went to Dallas and showed Willow Creek down there at a small festival called the oak cliff, I suppose, for his front. Nugent has honey show and he sets food out and he climbs in a tree with a bow and arrow in just fucks these deer up, every day is fucking up a new dear that's going to eat his food now, but so many yeah does. He have to abide by depends on the Michigan law. This is not Michigan anymore, he's in Texas, automatic fanboy, TED Nugent fan so in Texas. Can he just you know, shoot You know I'm saying like if he owns an animal, can he kill it without having to buy, and I in Texas is one of the best places for that for what they call high fence operations. But it depends on the animal in
there's a lot of animals that they keep in those those high fence places that are not their native. That, like african guy animals, like as so they don't have a season from other. They shoot him whenever they want to. So you could shoot him everyday if you chose so they come from another country. This is pretty nice. I'm getting three squares holy shit is that TED Nugent mom listen for long flying, stick right through my heart, my only brother, he he's no longer with us, but he he was a poacher. He hits his shot things all year long! Well, that's really common! In a lot of place. Yeah I mean this epic northwestel to they were telling us how to poach yeah we're up there, hunting for big foot, there's a there's, a there's, a woman that was a woman who worked at this store. I was like how he was when we we CL could just shooting with a bow and arrow, and nobody could hear it yeah
Well, my brother uh had everything figured out. He had. I brought Tony V out to his house once and and I've given him some money to buy to insulate his home, and I wanted by new windows, and I wanted to make sure you use the money. So I went to visit my brother basically Tony we get out of the car and it's just corn like psycho corner just growing up everywhere and and tell me what's going on with the court I mean, there's no rose in gradually I ask for the deer. You know by sort of the deer and Tony oh yeah yeah. Help through the winter he's. Like I wanna blast, am I go up to the top story? in the bathroom in it. Yeah there fucking snipers, perch yeah I go when I'm in the bathroom window goes all recoil. My brother is shooting out the window on the toilet. He shooting deer from
Toilet Wanna go out and meet me in the kitchen. All we're leaving tony videos and what is that over there was it like a woodchuck and my brother goes yeah and we're not even around the corner where blam I just you're that woodchuck, I you you have the diamond. I would check my woodchuck. Would you shoot a woodchuck just shot animals? Just he just he wants his friends are telling me. You know stories were amazing. You know it's stories. I hadn't heard. Oh yeah, you brother, you can say, there's a swan. On pond, as I don't tell me, swans, because no, no, no, but there was
big. I don't know what was in that route or something so so they had taken acid and they were climbed over the swap on it were fishing and June, to go dynamite fishing, my life is like you know. I had back surgery less than a month and a half ago, when is my birthday at the anime and You get a ladder out in the old guys like what are you doing? I go well. I think it be fun to jump into the pool from the latter, because she's like that as a whole right, I just see a slip and fall coming down in the latter. Well, well, I'll, give you an idea I I was sitting at home in them and that because of the backs AJ and that what did you get on your back? I had some disk and bone spurs and I feel great at what they do. They took a little bit my disco and took out the bone spurs, but I had other problems before I had nerves that were smashed into two vertebrae, yeah that we're making
so my leg, just the I couldn't walk. I have back issues us all, really have a disk bulging disc. Well, I have a dude when you want to counsel that, because it the kind of peace of the disk away yeah- and I gotta tell you her- either the surgery heals up and now my leg and I don't have back pain. You know I lost twenty. I I as soon as 'cause I could. I have my life back, but it's amazing. So I said that I am, and so since I was nineteen, but here's I mean yeah, nineteen so but the causes hi with the back surgery. I I I had a break. I I you know I I I they put me on the lot. It was a very big hollow yeah. So have you had the land? No, but isn't cowboy movies? Yes morphine, so so it's the should the killed, Lenny, Bruce and and really yeah. So so it's awesome by the way it was the best thing effort I was trying to. I said it's. It's not like people
describe Heroin as as calming as as, like. You know like that, and it's like now is it. Is it a lot? It is like right after that and before rigor, that you know I mean for a shame and regret right at the Brive Second Window and, and it lasts all day, would you put night Quil like original Michael, the real shit compared to it a lot it like a two yeah, I'm telling you man, it was like. It was you know, and I'm glad I I went through this back surgery and and when it was over, got off the dough, yeah, that's where we're going tonight gave nervous about that. I was terrified terrified and I gave it I gave it to the owner Why did you need it because of the I mean the pain was so bad. Like they're, you know they go into your surgery, pain, pre,
imposed, but but the problem was, is that I have I I yeah. I have no sense of reality, like I don't know the difference between an ingrown, toenail and and a ruptured disc. I really don't like it's just pain. You know I mean so I was in so much pain and it was. It was so well at one point already: I have a problem with good ideas and bad ideas. So so my friends are over the house and I said to my wife and I go when it be funny. If I shot a hole in the roof with the twenty two says, it wouldn't be funny and all I go yeah. It scared the cats, while you run to log in with a gun. Well at least one hundred Thompson Junior over here, at least I ran it buyers. Thank God. She's therefore, he's like no, that is your filter yeah, it's amazing! Yes, I want to tell you that. Well, that was delighted, but, but I will say
it's always an I've passed this down to my daughter. It's always the funny story that outweighs everything else like late John, it's the files, that's also, what's gotten you, you mean as a comic that sir, which gets you you like your life, your career in quite a livelihood as having stories, it's a it's a valuable asset. Well, like I love that my daughter has that's well that's cool and why she loves her daddy. She went to a wedding, she says I didn't know anybody, I go well. What did you do? She said during the first song I ran out and hunt the braid before like what the fuck is that Bro She really did that yeah. Of course she always knows that it's the stories you know she's got the photo was looked at you when you took this.
I did. You were nineteen. You quit doing everything yeah then. Is it nineteen to fifty and then there's nothing in between well the I had a back surgery before so that that was funny because it won't. Like I said, I put it in the hands of someone else, I give it to Why would you give yourself a green light to do shit like that, because you're in pain, like I had again, I had to talk to other folks and say: look man that had it explained. This is what this is for, but I've had surgery before knee surgery and I just dealt with the pain 'cause. I don't like bike it in. Right. I don't like I don't like all that stuff. All that stuff actually has a really weird reaction. Jimmy and I become a big asshole. Oh that's interesting,
I think I'm really nazmi cranky and this that really an and- and I mean I'm not like punching him quite but I mean it's just you know my short and I just tell it what to do, and so so this was the what worked and- and you know I was on this and the first time and and and she did you ever try to do it without it- yeah yeah, yeah, def, to pay and they're going. This is crazy, you know and they and they they actually just slammed morphine into my back because of this is crazy. That you're walking around you know and- and I thought well- ok, I can handle it. I'm sorry they did. You know what I did. I just Hamid immediately, that's fine, but but I was sitting there one day and this is the first time and and I'm watching a lifetime, and I'm just so.
Rubbing my wife comes in. She goes. You don't get any more pain, medicine, starting now: I married a man. Oh that's fun! I did not marry him. Maine cries during mommy, may I sleep with danger, sorry Tori, spelling or whatever I was watching on lifetime lifetime movies made you cry. Yeah she's like remind me she's, like that. That's it remind me not to take that stuff I don't want to cry and I want to watch lifetime. I was Q QA's for the movie undulated wow. When I went to the Boston to tell the people that you're on yeah, I just said, I'm really high. What else was I gonna do now? Was it painful just like sit down just like to sit up straight? Would you do it in your bag. Back to the point were sitting was a pain in walking was a pain in lower back yeah and in effect, in my life, to the point where I don't know. If your this way, what you go, huh you
thanks for going to the store, that's going to hurt a lot. Can I go in? I mean it's an affecting what you do to the point where I I you know I didn't have. I was fifty or in my late forties and and think I'm like a senior citizens of world, and now I'm back, you know, that's amazing, yeah back surgeries, scary, shit back surgeries are spooky. I have a well, it sounds. I have a great doctor and my it sounds like. Are you worried about control surrendering it is at it I mean I. I went to a bunch of doctors, oh really, yeah. I've had no surgery back surgery. I mean knee surgery twice, whatever you need? I told my ACL in both knees, I had a reconstructed and we discuss the first one was kickboxing, the second with Jujitsu and what happens wake me through them like when it happens. You like well, the first one I think you broke your leg, knew something was really bad. I knew something was really wrong like it pop
terrible, terrible, terrible pain. The first one, her a lot more. The second one didn't even heard it was really weird because it was. I was in what's called one slash two guard, so someone's legs are wrapped around your legs and he extended his legs and my leg went sideways and just went snap like a carrot. It was really weird. It was like this pop noise and then I didn't even know it was. The ACL was gone until I was walking, I think, was in my office. I was moving something no I just gave out. That's really weird. I they already have my left done, so I knew that my right was probably and we have got a for. The first one was that during I'm mad no training, both elementary training, okay, and what is how does the other guy feels he's like you know, because wasn't fault was to know what I mean is he does he feel weird yeah? He felt bad. He felt terrible the guy in the wheels a guy with it happened to the second,
was a friend of mine is a really nice guy and he was just terrible when you train I've heard guys, hey guys, would explode on me a couple times, yeah two different times that I can remember one time. I got blamed me, but I was ridiculous. It was just weird: it's just nominal scrambling like sometimes you do you need just gives out and then the other end of the one time was a guy didn't happen in time in his knee just exploded. It's went pop pop pop pop pop, but it was, I was a weird situation is like he didn't really have to tap like sometimes like you can get out of things and you real close and then I'll in the middle of like trying to get out of it like he was pretty close to getting out of it. His knee just gave out like it was a weird sort of a thing, and it made this horrible loud sound, and now that sounds to me you're thinking that I'm crazy 'cause, I'm going to to jump off the letter. Yeah I was going to get someone to steady. It well
can be dangerous. What is said about my no he's, this love doesn't finished and it's a little insane, but it's also very intoxicating. It's fun! It's like it's a very exciting game. Now about now you you don't. Do it try to wow yeah well the only thing. That's stopping right now is over this little disc issue, but the disk is getting a lot better. It's pretty close, you got taking care of? No, it's not it's not like. It was only a few millimeters, the ball okay. So it was something that, with spinal decompression in a bunch of high actually saw mine, the last the last and the MRI, and it was like a comedic. It look like a a bicycle tire. It with a wow it was that big, how many millimeters are prone? I mean it was like they put on the MRI and the two doctors go so yeah, it's I say: ok, yeah mine is the asymptomatic right now into stiff, and it's these things are the things this is the problem. The problem. The problem is by the time you figure out how to do it. What makes you happy the we
start fall and I would just tell me you might need to get glasses. I waited yeah. No, I definitely should get reading glasses. I have actually reading glasses, like when I look at things like anything that close is kind of blurry like right. There, it's blurry but, like my computer, is fine, I can read everything on the computer. I don't need it's things are close well, my phone, sometimes like sometimes I wake up. I can't read a number I like like if I have to actually dial it on my home phone, I'm just looking at the fuck. Is that it's weird when I have to go like the cruel, cruel joke, a time yeah, it's I n mother, at that you know I I I hate to be so cliche, but, as you get older, it's like you know, that's what that's like. I said. That's who I compete with now, yeah. Well, that's one of the reasons why I felt like going. I know you on what is a good did agree
three Bergen County Central special. What are what I gotta do competing yeah. You do a wind up thinking you got to get out more ship before you go. The conflict is if the hind conflict is what builds everything's will create everything's, why anything's interesting yeah conflict or just pure enjoyment of whatever you're doing that too? That's true Kathleen Hanna. This is a bunch of things that can move them along right. Well, the cool thing is, if you, if you stop making the conflict being other people, and you use your own demons as the conflict, then you have to create. You know you know yeah. I can sit there and and write a screen play and and not go down uh and not go to a terrible place to go there yeah go back and forth with myself when you create something like like this movie or anything when you write it. Do you sometime like get out of it and go. The fuck wrote that it's almost like
comes from somewhere yeah. I think that it's almost like this sounds really trippy, but I think a lot of the stuff well here you're on stage, and you say something that you never said before, and it's not even derivative? It's not something. You know, I mean your buddies in you or you guys discuss is a brand new thought, yeah II kind of feel like it's just there are ready and
like this this this stream and then you reach up and you grab a and the big part of it is trying to. I can't believe I'm not I'm delighted. The big part of it is is is getting yourself out of the way, so you can just grab that stuff. That's a great way to describe you know, because because, because you know I'm I'm terrible, I'm a failure of a hacked is often done before nobody likes me. You know, and it's so exhausting xo, and that's that's just having a big ego and rivers. You know it's still a big ego, yeah yeah yeah, you think about yourself. Instead of thinking about what you're doing you're going to San and stuff yeah yeah just make stuff, that's it should be sure you know makes the first make sure you know the other because
save it's sure you know you feel bad. You know, and if I do some good yeah this this, what did your read any press field stuff, the war of art? No, he talks about them, use you know and all he talks about entry to look it's a real thing and it's a kind of an interesting idea, because what you know people think of the muse. You know that, like in the the idea is that there's something that gives you these ideas for something that you you pay tribute to and then it it gives you ideas right. He actually asks are actively courts it like he actively like says, like you know, I'm gonna respect the muse. I'm gonna show up at work every day. You know and I'm gonna put in the hours and when I put in the hours the muse will come yeah and like he sort of it is his philosophy on is very enlightening, and it's also very
the it's inspiring 'cause. It makes you want to write it makes you want to create. It makes you want it like that attitude is a very beneficial attitude to have it's sort of spiritual in mumbo, jumbo and kind crazy. No, that's not. I say the nicest compliment I've ever received is this friend of mine who Tom Link, I think, and he he he saw movie in mind, and he said I want to go right. Yeah, that's great and I was like. Oh that's. I always feel that way. No. No. I like that was the nicest thing anyone's ever said. I think, after a movie yeah, that is one of the coolest things about you're artists. I don't know how to create more of it. I truly don't know when I'm making these movies what they're about later on I'll say. Oh that's this character, that's this person in my life and I have no idea until after there done and I'm watching him, like my wife
like you, didn't get that this is just pretty or people playing you and me fucking, idiot, yeah, listen man, you movies, fucking badass. I really wish you all the best in world. I will cherish these bigfoot socks. That's a big! My life in that house there's a really rad that my friend Alex yeah. I heard an item.
