Watch your dad back where man, scary she had, he could have bought a house anyway, let's go now tell me talking the maya, my pal billy waned Davis. I think I had to work in my life. It was the only way I kept myself intact was to be defensive, but all its yeah. I walk away? I learn they give I get
To that moment, where I raised my voice, I walk away because I can feel myself getting hot. And then once I get to a certain level being hot. I can't it's like that thing on stage when someone says something it is time the I oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, guess I it's cold does go cold and on saying called ad hot. He had cold Then, all of a sudden, you are possessed yet site its other thing who yeah and I'm just taken it everything, ever out on that person, and I know that person. So I know they're buttons therein securities in I'll, say that and so now, just one Why does my I don't mean to do that? But let's talk about the staging because, like they're there
If the I mean I haven't done that in a while, but it's always right there, yeah like as soon as like you know, I'm in my shit I'm open and do my work. You know and then one little thing and I'm like what the fuck this and then like you know you sometimes you I have lost it full on. and an audience for yeah or my girlfriend pointed out a month ago. She said once you've stopped drinking. You can choose like when you were drinking and you just had even a couple onstage and in that happen you are just full bore at that person in these shoes. I now you have more fun with them and you're not going to go. Right? Conversation yeah, it's not! Yet, if we're not like wars like. Why would you interrupt what I'm doing, and I still feel that way but now I know there's a more constructive way to sure. Like your like, what are you serious? This is your more can I continue it's it's it drives me like. Sometimes I can't sleep I'll have a good set, and it's just like one person.
is that what the fuck was up with that? Why did they come to the show right and that's what you home and like everything, was good, except for that yes- and it's thanks to chasing the dragon, should yeah yeah right, one killer so close to perfect. It was so close. It's never perfect Billy wayne, three names Billy wayne Davis there, Ok, you Billy wayne algorithm now everyone. I call me beta view or bow Bmw or boo yeah. That's some southern shit. It's yeah you Thank me, evaluators settings year in and year out, not anyone go by that a weapon beat out these south of yes and I went on I when I first heard comedy an appeal: Gabby, Davis, yes and then a couple pointed out. They were may like you should probably change that, because when people see that they think you're a black comic, and then that happened a couple times. I got looked at these. Why? What do you think there is a lot of? I have just initials a really
no especially in the south, that southern the chitlins circuit. I did want to call it that, but that's what it is is it. I thought they call it that I think no, but I'm very and with maximum, very cautious about how I put things have begun into trouble. Not like a on a grand scale, but definitely in situations like why just than when I moved to seattle. I gave I talk about race at all. I was handling people after the show, your suspect. Yes, one of them. Yes, they're. Trying to figure me out that you can tell it was a lot of e mail box like one of them. Yes, it was a lot of me explaining the joke here in what I was doing there and then I was like ok in I've noticed quick in seattle to that. There's not a lot of black people or people of color at all is just white people. So it's really easy to be progressive where there is, but neighbourhood, there's a black, nay That's it. That's craig mucus everyone!
it was like. Oh that's, the ghetto am I now that's a neighborhood that black people live exist, not a ghetto yeah. What is up with that? So strong but yet you're the races. Yes laxity. Right, you have a racist accent, yes, but I was the hours this aspect and I was lignite. You does I've grow up around black people. More than most people have yes that that always fascinates me talking you talking. Nate yeah bar gets here yesterday you know and as you said there, there is a language and a sword understanding in the south. That is much deeper and much different, and I'm not the racing but the they have lived together. Yes, you have lived four year, it's more, it's not the language, its more. The tone rang the south right, but but even by, but despite whatever evolving? The south is done in certain pockets, which I think it has. There is a there. It's me integrated in some weird way been most cities. Yes, like the place,
that racism was invented in this country is always more integrated, then than any city like cities are structurally segregate. Yes, It was like nights joke about melting pot in new york city say it's not really. It's a bunch of parts that want to live next part like em, sale, they're, not melting, the! I don't know. I just think that there's an integrity to to to the disk course down there that doesn't exist everywhere. Because everyone, I suggest we have no real experience, yeah with with cohabitation or or or or your ways, but we feel guilty. Yes, yeah or anything in this house there is that in this sound, so strange to say, there's a lot of people, they don't have that yield because it's like that, we grow poor. Wait, my family didn't own slaves, yet we we we were borderline waves are seriously I'm irish. I came from slaves, not a thing
like we were poor too. So let it that really is what it is. It's it's a class issue annual if you get like and you get angry poor people fighting each other, then rich people are. I go. Look at that. Yes, there is the problem, it's a racial problem. No, it's a poverty problem that you don't want to address yeah anybody. You just wait them fight it out. That's memphis is a manifest. In a nutshell, this is crazy. Word. You grow up across veal tennessee. It's between knoxville nashville, it's a little, mountain town. Basically it's on a plateau and you how many people in that town I mean. What is that I? I am a little I get fascinated with the south, I always say everytime, I'm there. I think it's amazing and I'm just passing with it, because I think there's more history there than almost anywhere. Yet a country learn their still more culture left. I think south you mean like people who live real lives, that the indigenous people that have been there for generations- and I mean indigenous by your fan-
yes and no longer term you're, still sort of function that way, young, it's not been paid, and it's not that suburb right by right kind of it's starting to happen. But it's not. They're still light people living that life who they are and who will allow our little off the grid? The deer the newly established grid of liking away. Where work. What are you where you shopping, yellow movie, still go down the jos place? yeah, like my grandparents drove to rock wood, which is the town next to workers, they, because the road when they are grown up, was better to go to rock with them, but they lived in our county for groceries everywhere histories and every night there drugstore in everything. I beg him back when people all american sort had jobs and he got a new, the guy that did the car. You knew the guy knew. Everybody knew that iran, the work the restaurant you went to the same.

There is a cup thousand screamin, on the field you go to school and you played on his team, Oh, my god s voice. There is only one school by any pride to have a choice,

I was a late bloomer, so I just because my dad loved and olive baseball, you got brothers and sisters. I have two younger sisters, better natural athletes. Let me which is very frustrating but did, but they can play football right now. Now, I'm not saying that texas way these it available to them to blaming. I could have tried they then any desire.

There is a lot of let's go I realise those like what the hell alike Why do I have to be powerful within into my mom, is really hard on me and then she had moron standing about the girls and also the fuckin assholes so
It was just a weird die. It was just me and my dad and then my grandmother live beside us in a house. in another house beside us asia, whose mother moms mom and then my dad's parents lived about two miles down the road on a farm. They did so our aouda farm, a lot I gotta go where Was that where you earned and but been noted, what, when you angrier. You need to run offer you battle youse, either in a jam or just by myself somewhere, because there's it does women are manipulative from the start, and then you get to and they know all year who your sisters yeah, just constant, fuckin pecking at me. Like what it's like, a relationship, it's easy to raise your best, no benefits No, no, no, no fun benefits, no, no just they can help you pick up. right girl or something I'd like a relationship where they'll just pick at you,
very calmly until you explode and then there is like wow. Are you acting crazy and you're like you? Just did that for like a day and a half, so it was a lot of set up or once I learned that I can hear me and I couldn't hit em back. That was really the nightmare year and what I see I'm still like they're part of my brain just walks into this sink, so they pick and they pick, and they pick until you pop and they're like wait what Yeah we, which is as I got older I realize, is pretty funny from their point of view, just pick it someone, that- and I have to do to my colleagues to fuck with all the time Let's all comedian starts. Yes, they do. Is they icon on his wig? Where my limits here really mean, fry made me more difficult and relationships because I do see what men are doing more than I think most diet I don't want to get into generalizations, but I mean I guess, the best man just suck it up
My dad he's an amazing man. he's an amazing man, and, as I get older, I see some of this stuff he puts up with em like that is amazing. Did he just through your press I suppose you, like union, take issue I mean there is rarely appeared in lagoon. My marriage. Was when I realized it was unravelling on aid to get out yeah. So as about twenty six twenties, ah said twenty seven twenty eight year Then I will look at my dad why the fucker you taken that bullshit. He added then like the grander aspect, is why you still married yes, there's still mary tat, their very be happy my mom's a little she's, a strong woman. it's better that way, very opinionated, strong woman, scariest fuck, that mean.
well, my grandpa her dad dad when she was fourteen reality younger siblings, though she helped raise them right, and had me when I was twenty one all she was, she was twenty one, yeah yeah planned and everything which is and they were married. They ve been mary like less than a year, sunlight, They were married before she get brain. Ah, I think that is, it is common in the south. I think so. I think. I think it in That was when I got mainly generalizations. It's very calm, india, so small town whatnot, but I mean like that and what is it common that people are actually married when they get pregnant? I don't think now know he then yeah, oh you did it. You know there was a. There was rule book where they grew up down the street from each other memoranda year older, that sort of sweet right. It's pleasingly sweet and has ruined me. I think in society today like
because I know it works of dna work and most people don't make it works yeah. So I have this almost expectation of now. This can, where I think I stayed in my first marriage a lot longer than I should have. We had as I wanted it to work, and so your mom's tough yeah and she doesn't take any shit Will that yeah she's a teetotaller, her out sober completely I mean, I think her eyes over here I think now all her and my dad have light drinks from time to time when they want to go home, but nothing I mean it's only with my dad. I've only seen my mom she's only dragged with me, like twice she's fun as hell when she drank yeah. I could see why she shouldn't drink. He never got the gene or you get angry and get her. Will you it's a real. You are holding back holy shit, yeah hannah thing right, that's funny! I'm glad it's not! It may be added
So how do you end up so fucked up? I don't know like I have like great parents. A great support system. I want to play baseball. That was my whole. That's what did it now is my cab. You got bullied into football. by your dad, who now- and I play college baseball either Madame dad knew, but football was like something I just did and then I got good at it. So it billy white David. That's that's a baseball players! Name yeah! yeah. There isn't a lot of scouts, like my name more than my ability. That is very true, so you were so.

Those guys did, brother had was up against that and tennis where he just realized.

As I just want the masses data that you need to re, evaluate, is alive thank you realize that yeah, I think that's. there's a lot of money on that whisky. Just shady everything justified its very accurate oh, really here, I am watching, yeah and I noticed basketball big deal there like intensive about the big deal. You think there's some. But what about that serve that that that southern style of of kind of ignorance I mean
if you come up against that. I mean we I mean obviously was in your family. I don't I wouldn't I I dunno, if your your family's progressive necessarily, but they were teachers yeah. I would definitely say even to this day they were just here. They can't stop playing devil's advocate haha, jokes, yet so even stuff, like my dad, loves, listen to were rowing radio, we're in a dry, and he doesn't believing as I do. I just like. Listen to the enemy yachting. What they're saying I was again now just sit there. Might we gotta turn this office? He enjoys the yet the hate as yeah he's, I just known what they think he has a kid, but pretty simple. We yeah, but you gotta know how they're doing it and stuff, and I was like when they come out. Yeah he's just a football. I mean he was probably a general in his other life because that's how he thinks he's a big silver civil war by huge it's
it's annoying almost and he plans on his own our dire I'm gonna go data, the reenactments he's, that's what he's gonna do for his retirement, not as a job. I think just go. Do it did you who's you wanna play now have an ask which he wants to be, and I don't want to know what is it war, but does that mean he dragged to vicksburg and I've been vicksburg then to jamaica about our yeah. That was definitely a detour on a lot of our vacations. Go go see the battlefield yeah, what you do something enjoy. Peace will allow them to what I mean. I think it's it interesting that the thing out interested me was that you know there were these divisions in families in communities that you know they would fight for a few hours? And then you know when the when the general called time they'd go over and eat with each other yeah. I that to me is just insane: it was the bloodiest fuckin war in the world, I mean When you look at the numbers of people that died in that war, it's insane it's scary, yeah.
The thousands of all- and I think that's why they're cc c is so good at forborne such a big cause that is still ingrained in that kind of theirs regional conflict. Almost manners involved in the conflict to let go nay poisoned somebody's trees like an alabama fan, poison, some famous trees, norman lay. Even alabama fans were upset by now. Now we don't do that right. It's gonna lie or not with us here, will punish him in a bar, but we're not gonna nail trees. That's yet has come on yeah. That's that's not fair. but I have some cool the idea in enriching. Will you write pissing? Why you're talking to me right right? I wouldn't hurt somebody so you you grew sensing that that then the that there is. still a competitive element between the youth. In the confederacy, oh yeah,
Oh, it's just like aids. There is a great mark twain quote. I recently read about travel plans. All sense of we know bigotry and in it really does. We just learned like oh now, most people are awful yeah. That's what I learned I really I don't want to. I I always want to go the other way. I I always want to believe that most people yeah there there's an okay dude in there. definitely ok, yeah! That's! Why, like? I can sit in a bar see interest here, hear the most awful stuff goes, unlike that, dude would help anybody rush just and you sort of have to make weird kind of exceptions. So do I guy and yeah he's a little like that, but yabbies alright yeah Well, it's we do that with comics all time, there's of comics the they give you merit just in another walk of life. You break, that is an awful, Terrible person be like he's one of answering a nigger. I know
he's going to touch you in a weird way. We're just gonna, ignore that he doesn't use the spectrum thing. I guess you learn how to tolerate things and as long as it's you know not illegal yeah, yeah someone's are dirt. Yeah someone's hurt badly yeah yeah. I I guess that's true. I think that's true about comics. Is that we're all kind of you know broken toys of one kind or another, and you kind of gagged a little off but yeah and I'm drawn to the people that are kind of the most. Broken right and I dont know that we necessarily get too close, not at theirs is weird openness to all it where it's, the other still and understanding. I know that a higher and there's a lot of thy. We can be open, but if you, if I get about you, yeah you're, like hey! Now you can't between us yeah. That's why we're not? Having that conversation then yeah like no. I can say that I'm a shitty person. You can't say that, but okay, so you're in kentucky. yeah. I do
maternity wards. I really bought into that they really sold me hard on the beer and pussy thing there, and I was like this is exactly what I want cause I need. I can see the future in this. Yes, like two years, I was just a fucking meathead playing sports in a small town, so it was like this and then I got into a nosegay out. This is awful. It in they ve got. It got me and fraternity was an actor mad man in all this stuff, like oh, yes out here, yeah, there's matt long is a really good actor mit so he can got me and then he just disappeared after that worry me. I gotta play, and then he was gone yeah that next master. So he was a analysis with these deeds from Kentucky that had money, drinkin drinking a just, had a different outlook, and I did so
it's interesting, no one you when you are from a certain class of people and then your ear, you realize I get these people and give a fuck, there's nothing to bring me a while. I was in a weird denial that people were different. That class was that different, their dinner yeah! I didn't, while everything I'd morning, wanted it to yeah yeah. You want to be like we're all the same yeah until really when it came down to it now, you're, not really. No we're not yeah. I'm going to be okay forever. Now know. What's going to happen to you, yeah yeah, it was yeah, there's a very late. Yes, yeah, yeah that And then open my eyes some stuff, and then these guys are already sat near he knew, what they were likewise and other stuff, now still transit figure, stuff out and drank, and were you there were you there crazier the bunch, our definite eyes, usually the guy that that certainty, the guy from the outside it's very good. They I like to watch him. Yes, there very much.
give billy booze yet right and help make the party happen until I would go to far call him out on some bullshit and then I was yeah fights whether fistfight some most isn't most pussies, though, are you fighter, though, not really value have I yeah, I mean I was an athlete too so late. I was always and the good at it cause. I was an athlete in that, but I never understood like in high school dudes, wanted to fight me because I would date their eggs girl there's something about why we get a scope by basque boats. The same were disprove, whose more athletic system to him, and then you just sit on their face wore what we're supposed to yeah, which is hit each other and I'm like yeah, why? I don't know nothing in this proves that I'm better it heading, but then I'd parents always told me, never start if I ve never walk away from one either they taught you that yeah so yeah. That's. Why
was in a couple fight in a couple times. I was an invite. I just got punch because I deserved it. Oh yeah just yeah a lot of hug you and me in your based on that. I'm just gonna say stuff that I've already perceived it. You ve done yet in sometimes they I hadn't done that, like what going out to a drunk bigger guy organism. Girl here shown offer my friends and I say sunday, his girl mia. at the time in volunteering to do just turn around and taught me. He didn't lay me out, but I just got the point: real quiet was a smile. I was. I am sorry that I recall those and that's the cool thing about the south and fighting those like after it's over like we're, buddies, again, yeah you're, probably closer friends. Now so there's a memory like yeah, okay, I had that coming yeah like when it was their slow motion by all he's gonna to take
hey yeah. There's no. Are you can't dark at that? Just price said some very dirty to the girl who was talking just because you wanna start shit, yeah yeah. I try. In its priority housing you drink, em and you're. The mass got your the the drunk. There was another guy. We were competing. Oh yeah, there is a yeah. He was very funny to you put us together. It was a good time, but when did you decide to do comedy what inspired that business are seeking. Only indications classes. Those watching a ton of I've always been a fan of stand up. My parents were always a fan of sick, in writing DE. I am almost reached timing. She like people good time, so I With that background in it, my dad always bragged about watching the first snl, he had richard pryor album since oh yeah as cheech and Chong yeah, hell, yeah, yeah, Cheech and Chong And then I was almost speeches were funny: yeah
and I'll I'd being funny and in this wonderful speech, writing class or about its being or bad speech. Riding speech. Analysis advanced speaking, I did all that, I'm ok. I could have, major in communications? Are now? But I did it split business. Major, that's what my refocused on speech and then what you'd have to write speeches and read them for the clear we studied Clinton. Our really studied him redefining the is high It's a lot of his techniques. He's fascinating, like what are some techniques of speech re. I will not really speech right because the the best technique is to write for their strengths, okay, when with Clinton yeah he's just so charismatic yeah that a lot of it was like a shale of our imagine. It looked like a reno nine one, one one hundred yeah, it's like okay! This is the main wait a right right right, organizing billy, but what
the idea when you took those classes. I know lot of people just do communications because they don't know what else they're going to fucking die was my basically, I knew I was good at speaking in front of people from high school and stuff at. Why would you why did you speak in front of people how's the that council and then you did that shit yeah. Well, you dare tell you do that now an extra credit then we are these tee shirts. This had soon council staff on the back na in that was like. pass to do whatever the fuck you wanted, like teachers did not really? So they are here. I future leaders of america. These animals, like a cool thing in our school, was unlike the nurse It was like right, leg, the cool in years, in juniors, when you are in a shop and student counselor yeah, I can t I liaison that's. What there's nerd thing here. Take me because they're getting to pay awful again waiting. Cocky yeah like a liaison between the nerds and the jocks cause I took you know I had an interest in angle.
In history are reading and a lack of my mom and then I lived in this job worldly out and an athlete right I was never comfortable and either so is goin back and forth and you're the funny I so like yeah. I know what that's like you. You could speak to both you, your intermediary, you, you weren't locked in to being a dick yeah yeah locked into being. You know socially awkward, but then found were bigger, dicks we'll be there back then, and we all know how the hell do thirty three, Well, yeah I mean there was a time where nerves and in in high school. When I was younger they they. They could only hang around themselves and they were socially awkward I would like to play chess and dna and there really good at math, and they just didn't. They were like an indifferent from a different culture like you, I didn't have anything against somebody. They always impressed me why? But they were not socially easy now they were now you're right, yes and they
I think they brought a lot on them, that they could. Like my I've, a cousin he's twelve years Asperger's aspergers. another useful areas, but he's So he has that weird. Where he's a dick, delays realize he's a dick and I see that my friends I had my high school there like. Oh they partly head, they didn't realize they were being a dick and then they get this anger that arose with dick back to him right with you. being an asshole for the other and they don't necessarily know because their brains are preoccupied preoccupy we? Why would I have social grace when this put this in this. In our view, this right right I've got I'm working on a problem. Yeah I'll tell you what wanna tell all the nurse now like you guys need to each other there they die an inter cultural, defining thing now yeah. And now there's a lot of people that aspire to that's amount, but I mean in there's a lot of people that dress the part down. I mean I've had
conversations with you about what true nerd is amiss in its really an almost it's in an obsessive interest, in something and and it defines who you are well, That's why I've related to nerds too, but you desire. The other thing you ve got. The weird kind of thing that makes comics different is that before, everything else. There is charm, and like you, I think I could pry resolve this just by being me. Yes, yes, Let me I got this. I got this. Let me talk to him. Give me if I'm not back in two minutes usually can get me, though yeah it just says. There's other things! We want to do that. Other work now we're gonna, be: oh, aid, shit, yeah, bye, bye get by because you know will do a good enough to get in and then its is there, like rang out. That's
Definitely why having a manager now helps me tremendously, because it is like that was most of my career like I got it, yeah I'll, just call them yeah yeah, oh they they were mad at me. oh yeah. They were why, yet to I didn't do the thing I told him. I would do right now. Yeah yeah and also that the EU should just do you do and what the man there is in the club owners do what they do, So here you are you're the ways on an invite by our case you're in kentucky in the EU. Are we getting your chops during the speech thing? So you why I'm comedy went without a lot of me entertaining parties in this girl. I was standing at the time said you need to go do and mike because it was the pro she noticed that I was depressed. I didn't realize, owes, whereas their days that I wouldn't I just drank and not get out of bed revenge depression or alcoholism. It was depression. because I wasn't on I was never an everyday drinker right. I was ever ever never
I would have probably went on a couple binges where be like five or six days of I was. Do this there was a lot of on the road to sure so disposed to. I was still do in stuff like anna I'll just lay. There are two days in between drink and she thought that somehow or another an open mic would resolve as she goes. You need you need to see. If you can do this, how yee, oh you'd, been talking about it, yeah, so you're obsessed with it and you didn't, have the balls yeah or just yeah or even the thought, I says to be like could pursue it? You know I didn't know how I thought I'll move to Chicago and the second city yeah. in standard was never I never thought about that. Yeah and then she- and I am called zombies and had a month wrote in nashville ray minutes Anna we broke up in that month, whither there's a few more Yeah yeah, yeah yeah go as
that material now, yeah upright hung on the reform of years. Her broken up with me in that timeframe out there a really and yet terms of resenting area yeah by then eventually realise like now. She that's what she was knows. What we are supposed to do. Let us start thinking about life like that. That I mean that's when these weird keys, things, he did there's no time for regret or spite over some day. And go right eventually, gotta be like. Why did get this out of it? Yeah I've learned ass, certain questions about people but also why she told me she bipolar six months in relation to me that something you should lead with yeah here, but I know lead with it, but certainly within Both are weaker, yeah, the alligator after two weeks you like this may continue by the way I may have massive mood, swings yeah, but also she she got you do quality for the first time that I remember doing it and doing well, because the guy before me was awful- and I was
ok, member, throwing up before real and I'd seen that grown up people do that before sports and stuff, always those I was like this bullshit. What are they they're, so dramatic yeah and I was so nervous I threw up and in that made me more nervous that you could get that nervous and I was getting that nervous wow and so, but as soon as I stepped on stage, I was fought. Ria now went away and I did well in then a cat said: hey, there's this mike on tuesdays. We do every wake you dont have to bring. People is aids and all that stuff you made an impression on the micro community. Yet was I got him land landon lion, but that's right, but that's the biggest deal in white, logic, young comics right. Why can't I? Why can't I? Why can't I, because you ve got to impress their comics yeah we're out of the gate. Yeah you to show some different aris within a month or two, the other guys who have got their shit. Will tightening community and they know the things they ve gotta go now. Let him in yoga guys are
yeah man I wouldn't have. If that date, one have told me, I probably wouldn't seek out outrageous. that monthly right right anything If he was like. Oh there's this team cozy, where the charm paid off yeah. I was in really well yeah, you're right and then I remember getting off stage and going like. Oh, this is what I'm going to dig in maybe three months later hours they arrived at the town of ads. They actually are May I say: do you want to drop out knows I? How did you like you this miserable Now you talk about as this year. and as I have a good gps, can go back, thought in seven years. If I'm not where I'm supposed to be seven wow yeah, he was twenty one. I knew enough about it at that point to be like it's going to take this long to a we were pretty obsessed with it yeah and you told your parents, you are doing it yeah and they were probably concerned at first and I don't think they were not scared.
I had a decent little job near what do? What at the european store, very interesting As it people come in and out, you'd see what they get. The african great value at stoned, great yeah, yeah showed up drunk yeah, they didn't care. What do you mean? You could see what they get. You see what they were buying in shipping oh yeah there's like private mailboxes there, how do I ship this will yeah? Well, I learned how to pack stuff and then just like just you could tell a lot about those personality, practical skills, knowing how to pack things. It is its people? Don't have it now? I know it's weird like when I'm like. Now you need to do this, and this would be where I have a hill and it's just something I did yeah. I picked up along the way and cook a steak too yeah thanks outback, so you work there too, yeah, oh wow, that was a no mom and pop organisations for you. No, not really
this went in bowling green. I just went. I was like what restaurant makes the most money the stake out and then I just what they're saying cook a stake: youngest pretty good. I was a server, but I learned how bout that's what I want to learn? How to do? I stick yeah. That's I learned that until you can pack shit, you can cook a steak and you know that you know if you're dating a bipolar person, they should tell you yes upfront, you can throw a ball or two a few different types. Yeah I can hear them can write speech, yeah yeah somewhat. You know how much you can and can't do. kind of nine? Yes, I can drink none at that's! That's they took me back decade to learn that that I should drink now. Many arrests, three or four too, I would say Roma thought Oh really, now one I don't wanna it's still pending. Now, it's not pending just its. It was terrible,
yeah yeah, I was the it was the end: oh yeah, marriage. So oh yeah, I want a really when I yeah nowhere me in her at a really good place.

Take it again after headline highest. five or six years a good one, I work with your feature for me. Yeah yeah now is a genuine and strong features. Well, that is, it took out. Even I have seven have years to get feature, work, anxieties, they already had lining the idea and stuff right right right, that's the funny thing it's like people are like. I was headlining, be rooms mike yeah the year what they could afford: yeah yeah yeah I'll headline for the same amount of future, for what that's and I was making a little more about that. That's the thing I they just saw me forever nea as that goofy him see that came in with it but that's the problem with, like everybody has with their has with their home clubs? Yes, they won't fuckin headline. as you know, you go away the move to seattle. For six years, as we want yeah how many years into comedy, were you

Out now he came through national aus I'd work, my way up to being the house him say pretty much. I got to work like Hedberg YAP three weeks before he died, how god what was out like did at the time. It was the most amazing thing in the world to me is when I was still college. I found him on napster of your. He was fame, yeah. and he was my little secret. Dear aunt, the comedy nerd nowhere else really gave a ship earlier in the end, huge and I remember telling us like when you get popular piss me off cause. You were my sacred, the annual again napster right again, did a bunch of drugs. The first night second night, I was just exhaust It was all overwhelming to media and
it was a little calmer and I went to leave in mich le, say: hey man, we go get me. Some drank goes again. You like and get yourself some, I want to hang out with you tonight. We went and did blow at this close bar and printers out all night air and the talk. Much He and I told the owner and then Lin was dirty analysis it was another as it were, with us, we're like local guys they were really drunk by he always seemed like you- need the lock in and have from company yeah. That was, much yeah an odd in Adam my I was never a guy that did cocaine yeah, like I've, probably done a handful times only one time without drinking yeah. Every time I did it was so we could drink more exactly like and people reg, I'm just going to do coke, I'm like what would you do I don't seems crazy, yeah yeah. I was the same way it's like going to a pot dealer and be like aneurysm pot and I'm going to get coconut. That is the exact opposite of what I want right. Well, yeah! No, it was always for me. It had go together. Yeah get that balance.
I knew I could never just do it like out you'll be running somewhere, so you're just doing god. No with now. We were dragging area in this a three week before he died yeah. It was It was over. I mean it was also a lesson cause I'd to this day. I never seen anybody use the quality and different types of drugs. He was used near just booze tons of just straight vodka, basically yeah. Just he had a bag. What he called kettles. It was just peels yeah me just pull those out and then he'd find blow afterwards right very wise in doing the hiv you getting thou somebody got. He kept private yeah, yeah, yeah no. I had a couple of friends that yeah they directed imagine this diana. I was like nope now yeah.

Well, that's sad. And it sad, and how could I knew you'd or beat up by that time? I think yeah. I remember when he walked in the agreement

In his yeah yeah like hollow yeah yeah is. It was not the guy that I pictured now sad man and he were those glasses you can quite see in the shows were he was a couple shows. I had to pull him off stage like like EU duty laying on state. Then tell me to come. Get him and then I ll use in these you well there you are was the saddest part there are realised later.

I can't I still can't do and I don't have a desire to do either as part of my problem, but it does work a year and he said that he's he's, whereas by radio is what is more responsible for his fine than anything else in the attitude, as I'm sure that's true, regional radio, He these taught me how to structure like long form set, and things like that now he's a little more verbose than I am, but
as far as an arc and everything will know it's important to like you know, to to see somebody who?
