Is extra sire Jug learn into here we're gonna, let those who, if necessary, will I ran into a wall out, pull the old juggle that I've always been fascinated by this. What's your philosophy with hecklers, you know do you get her mother at not any more? I'm not, but you know, you will run into a I'm, not a big fan of you know like like say when I first started. Even in the lunchroom now, what can it? You know you do that you do the new. No Cardiff Joan in order dozens in. So you did. You handle a heckler like that, but when what I was I gonna became professional.
Really like the idea of people coming to see me and sit down and relax. Let me do my show and They also decide bearded. Somehow you think you're funnier than I am and that you they have the right to judge reject inside my show became something I wasn't really a fan of so but I still had a couple of gloomy quick, git bags, but after I wouldn't I wouldn't go back and forth with people no more than three or four times and they'll be like I, this enough human how'd, you get rid of them I mean you know I have one or two good ones that would like just shut it down and then ghetto indian. My MMI one of my final was, I always was saying, look dude. I got one word for you. If you keep Talkin security, so it is Gary, would go take about. There will be no, but I definitely help one time a myth. Is I got into order
we had to fight is do like EU. He came down to the front of the stage and he was park in all its threats you say your smack, my glasses off. My face and don't they would do it and then I jumped off the stage was crazy, and that was the only time that I've ever had that it go that far, You know the whales is over over the top, so how's the crowd respond. When someone like that happens, I mean you know people people love a good car accident man, you know they want to look over. One is not deal, may want to look and they like play not so people get pretty high, male situations unless again You have you having a good show and they feel, like the person is disruptive in. There Are you in and ass the thing about it most hecklers, coming from a drunken stupor, no idea that their. You owe me a rude edges Yelena stuff in May,
think they would their say and is funny in it, but you know the crowd and like it they will both them and let them know they're the ones get out of here. They'll give him her exactly so when you work with Lee Harvey. What's it like to work with him was, to be on the show with him. I know you did kings a comedy before that. What was it like to be on the stage where the you know those it? Then we had a instant connection. You know, like said he used to have several. How many clubs in Dallas area, until you, after after bring me down at first time. He would bring me back quite a bit in then, which has started to have this. Come rather, we will sit around, we can. We can hear one subject matter and Bobo, just a spin off of it and just keep ad the joke I did Joe and that's what is that That was what about great chemistry, Does that also true for it on to the tv show to Steve Harvey Sid So that's it at that.
Really, where we started the jail we had has got a natural. Two men show that can happen like almost avenant, Stella with joy or those mothers brothers, like people look at all the key they got a google. These people ever keys diet right now about smothered this. Others Bradley. You talked about the me. Goes no like a bird yeah. Knit two May comedy was a view that used to be a big thing and so yeah. But when the most famous one famous nights Steve used it, just think as he was like the hull then the embassy of his club and me would bring you down the beach airliner by name yet this he's very long. Winded like issue is, you know, abused. Instead, you tell a story telling tell a great story teller by so he would go back on stage. So laugh you airline, he would go
at stage as the embassy? you do another hour. His pocket Amira one night as there are no now because was my audience like. I did would have killed you both global, say, good night. Possibly things about me. When I leave everything about you, so he was all stays talk while back on stage, so we will base that what you, notably as it makes Europe take. My but it is as though we were back where we started talking. I gotta MIKE do you know it was three in the morning were still stage and we end up doing. Is this job where we, it was one of the famous where we we did two roaches on the wall, and so we had turned out all the lights in the club and then they turn the lights on in and we both just froze and started man what happened? It was just a joke where we, just like you know, became these two roaches if it was
Miller the night when you come in a kitchen? Is L Il Larry's? Here's a big fan of yours? I can t I m sure it was two thousand when you guys did the kings equality yeah that was in there. That was really great time. Was you know nobody had? Actually done again a kind of leg mega I will show whales allowed a big names. Allah one show was the people, are doing arenas, but not at that time, like in a net fashion. And so in this evil. Our new and the old steam Harvey Comedy did sitcom In so doing we would go out and tour only so, and there was a Minos greatly. Those those those those good greater. How many people were in the arena that night, the first time we didn't have to first time we did, it was eleven thousand. We did in Dallas
rose like about eleven thousand Indiana just kept growing up to then me. Let me eventually, I think, Kevin Hard just recently, broker record arise where we add forty, two five million the Georgian down here. I think that Georgia Dome was over. Forty eight is like forty two five in Georgia, dough and and then nothing Kevin. I just recently deal like a hundred thousand grazing over here that, while he is so but don't stand up, you know, like D as they would our music without a ban. You know what These necessarily with songs of your childhood that you do, nor are real. Can she observed you gonna help along this jokes? I've been really want to ask you this. You have watched it so many times, but when you walked out in Georgia Dome and here
silhouetted there yet ready you walk out and there's over forty thousand people out there go in, absolutely nuts, when you come on the stage take me through moment I mean you- know, people ass, often ass, you do your butterflies, or do you still get nervous and What kind of moments is just You know is right there at the beginning of a. U do you feel that anxiety, you, you understand somebody else. It killed all stage. So you so somebody else just performed killed in all jokes worked the crowd, didn't you! Now you worry bout of any Amy joke you ve ever written is go where he just give inside your head, like a man, so Oh you just have to carry out below, for me was always try to relax and No well, what a start nowhere. I want to end in it
we think the middle. I can neither can move around. But if I know like a joke, I want to start with that usually helps you bring thee you know the butterflies or anxiety down like soon as you get there. First, laugh, you lie, I cool, so always picked. Good songs HU? I, like my move, was to pick a song, thereby legalese not on me, if, until a good job after the those butterflies had to go, a pretty fast when you walked out there, because I mean that's about a big hug as you can get from an audience when you walked on that stage, is huge in this one of things you can't you try not to always almost with even greater, even with small crowd. Still to this day, I still colonel egg but I'm in smaller sections like him, I had I known, Pard minimalism is sold and you don't look at the magnitude of it all at once. You know, maybe gale. I once you get rolling and you can hear the laughter then you can can absorbed all thing, but for them
Osborne. I do not like to keep it to their front. Look or a door people in everybody else, no back or just you know, their shadows are: do live available, do crowds! in ten or twelve thousand, but up pick out a group I can make out. Contact will year and if their following me, I know I got em the that's gonna, because they used. I did you study tried, identify with forty thousand people in Europe. People way in the stands. You know you you you you do that, at that point that you have them in the end you gotta give that wave and make sure that they understand you reckon, as live. Are the building? That's different connection mud, but will you when you first talk to him at you. I got to saying use and now you people that I can kind of see. I try to get them to gauge and I will do I too, like a bug out. One sided a room laughin more than the other leaning toward that side
cuz laughter is also contagious, is like was the people's died allowed me anybody, even though it's funny but they'll, hear somebody else. Laugh in they'll start a laugh with emanated just kind of catches all dear, but I stop that. I had to learn to because you you know you would you would go out and always want to fight against. You know the hardest battle, like these people laughing I'm going to go home I the steel wall into just be my head and to move. Rather river zigzag. We all go back here induce raft innovation. I hear back here tell me about barbershop, because that is one of the favourite characters ever seen you play, but it was kind of controversial right yeah. They would do well to some controversy with that. That was a fun. You know. Barbershop was one of those things too. Will you you know your career? I was trying to tell some like some young students is not long ago. Is that
a choices in your career based off. What are they? Is that you really believe in right, because I had an opportunity to do a bigger movie for more money at that? At the same time, the barbershop, the character was somebody that rain and resonating too where'd to me, and so I was like. I just turned down the money to go further than the better idea which may in eventually made What money so does really really blessed, because that care do his job. As you know it It was such a personal cattle story at the time that to go inside the barbershop, to be able to count to tell a story. The way did they want, The door was so specific to the barbershop that you know grew up? Vienna was a part of my life. Is this space where people his head for you don't need, say what they want to say and talk, and he can even had a Europe be politically correct,
the euro. Is you and you had to say and write a word about our role? Be bad note. Talk about. You know what I mean you right, that's what I mean is okay. I got it but give us up so that that kind of that kind, was it so that role in it? I had this idea that I want to look like Frederick Douglass. Oh, I remember a start grow up my air, for that is so I would give my hair braided Numa my wife, since you tell me how to quizlet. So I would twist up we with our grow by here. But then we went down to May school, vacation age daddy's rubber bands in it. You know that had not got in the water. In my hair expanded in the realm of a star pop added no, what we do know what it was scare me because I like it I'll just be dug it when I was wrong with you in a wavelength, your rubber bears a burst in so but
but I remembered that that lead. Surprise everybody when I showed up with that care, do with the hair. Had the whole idea what he sounded like and it was use. One of my favorite rose to Ducas girl, it in oh blackmail, as you say, whatever he wants it, S was. Would you do high cholesterol? affects more than a hundred million Americans and is a major risk factor for heart disease. The number one cause of death in the: U S, while healthy lifestyle choices, can help manage high cholesterol. That's often not enough stands or a type of medication is proven to be safe and effective the treatment of high cholesterol. There are multiple step options available, but right for you check out, take glare high cholesterol and are experiencing any challenges with your medication. Talk to your doktor, big,

As with all medications, side effects can occur with Staten Use and your doktor is always the best source for information and answers. Check out, take cholesterol to heart, dot, com and talk to your doktor, about finding the right stead and for you, what was the controversy, so the controversy gay mean you know that again as the barber shop in they wanted to. They had a subject matter course in their. Where use it was the Rosa Parks saying about just you know, just shoot sat down in a sad eyes down in the inner mild king being a freak. So all the civil rights people were really oh said that no
we they deal with the writer was trying to do. We really want to do something else, controversial, like characters, and so you know in the end the script it was written in a way that I've got worse. Who were? The writer was trying to do. We really want to do something I was controversial like that, can allay. You know, made people feel a certain way, but it was I thought about it. Script was written a little more distasteful insiders. Did it my way, the same thing that he wants to do and I gotta I had a lot of Bob leeway to improbable Nemo because was cause. Was I start doing character? The directive was like. Hey man? This is incredible. Like I didn't I don't even I had no idea like this was going to happen, so I would improv a lot of my jokes and stuff himself in that in that I've been was a big fight, producers it. Nobody wanted me to say it, nobody wanted it to be. You know people s like now.
The problem with this. I think that this guy, this oh man has seen it all and as basic Golly, say it a man, I'm nicely hello. You known weekly devices that Santa Rosa Plugs then be deserve. Cod You just said other other people sat down before they got beat up and make us especially the me They got beat up to us into jail and he was shrill whistle these people so is like that's. The point is like UK, make somebody go like. Oh, like Jackie Robinson wisdom, We want to play baseball first, those other people that you know that he was the first whenever we all know, but it will not be what I didn't get that that Saint James there was good enough to play. You know. So there was controversy, but it still was a positive thing for you. Right. We love character, Isla Euro yeah. I love that care days. It was one of those things where was cabin, you know, but it was gone away because I was gonna phone calls leg. You know at my house, like jazz Jackson, got out a shop.
Rosa parts, family called. It was an indian like oh? I was going gonna go to Atlanta where one time thing Andrew Young calmly, it was gay, was seriously people wanted they want itself explanation. Males, I would guys is a character in a movie. Is not me hello, you MAC at play here like when they yield cut. I was done with it call me I'll bet. You're calling me a bit crab serves you by the snag seller or what you would do for me. You know but burden, but I think that you know like you, but you know like all kind of controversy. In the time it it makes you newsworthy people, gotta dig two. It allows it like. You get loans that feel like. I was like being.
About. In the end I was empathetic to people you know like in allows. Yes, Bessie RAG, Rosa Parks, family like I was, I was empathetic to do what they would, what they failed. They thought they heard in that, and I had to let them know. Do you didn't hear that leg? Would you didn't year? Was me dear her? I just said something other than what people like casino, plus the context of the story line was other people in the movie work RO in the book flag on eighty four say in that zone was a balancing force in the movie. It will say at all coming here. No show me
it wasn't like your base. Adele s dog, pile her red exactly there were people that we say, and now I know you don't know a shock and abandoned. That's the thing that it is also really the Kurds, eggs and ways to barbershop operates in this, where we were really it. Oh to it. I would this story was trying to say is that its people in his barbershop wid dissenting depict opinions about so many things that you would be surprised to hear that you would be surprise the guys that are lepers in a barbershop dead dead, get everything down of. Do you believe what you'll be I think we all want people, but no we're not in that of the place where you find out. They were not all one one, Canada, Easy GO and group of folks will. I spent my summers in the thriving metropolis of Monday.
Ex's imbue India. Why alone, which had anywhere between two thousand and five thousand people in it? It was small, I don't think they even listed. The number of in their put of these guys name on the side away with these distorted opinions of the barbershop like there were people it hung around and they just talked all day and there buddy had opinions and nodded thing to back them up, but everybody. I had a big gray, that's right, I mean even young kids. We get in there. Listen to these guys talk and we come away with these distorted opinions of the world. Then you go to school and repeat some of that stuff. They look at you like your and say it s like you know like in any body that has the ability to really can allay make their points seem like as legitimate with one or two small facts. You write you. You do you down the street, believe it everywhere. They ever word. Ninny go repeated. Symbolic girl, like a true here, tell me about Bernie MAC. I got to know Bernie
