Yeah a great was was a great move on your part because i did that for certain shows just when i was getting going just to get stage time realizing like when comedy use was the big show. Yeah i knew the guy that was it. He was like man. These were just always so stacked but we became buds. And he's like one thirty bones.

It's another great skill. set two new melon. And it's like you know. A part of me would have some apprehensions. Because i was like at see people that were hosting all the time and i was like well. I don't want to turn into like that as easy to get boxed in totally but it was like all right. Well like it definitely made me half to always have energy right which i think is not bad and then be able to rip a little bit with the crowd. I got to be able to do crowd earn and do different shadow flavored time. Because you are a out of the gate and it's nice to be at places where you can get a consistent Run a show is because you're lying. Oh man these people are seeing me a lot now. I can't be doing the same ship. Exactly that's some. That's one of the hardest things like are you a are you a sit-down panipat at a desks right kinda guy or experience something sparks and you're like i can make this fun. I yeah totally all you know. Wake up in the middle of night sometimes to just write down. I yeah of the books and then i lost two different times notebooks. That were devastated so now. It's just all phone because he lost. Because even if i am one of them more so than the other but it was. They're both. I was able to remember bits of things but like dude. It was just it was just so awful zones like i just gotta even if i lose my phone i'll never always have the email access but every now and then i'll sit down and really stuff out.
