FDA advisers recommend J&J vaccine for emergency authorization
"Amid this new warning from President Biden. There's been another significant step forward for the nation's covert effort. An FDA advisory committee endorsing Johnson and Johnson's covert shot and, according to multiple reports of CDC expects the FDA to grant emergency use authorization tomorrow. CNN Health editor Maggie Fox joining our own Sean Anderson and Hilary Howard earlier to talk about This endorsement was made said that it was a pretty easy decision for them. They said that the data clearly showed that this vaccine is not only effective in preventing severe Corona virus infections, but that it's also a very safe vaccine. So this committee, these advisers to the FDA voted unanimously to recommend that the FDA gives emergency use authorization to the vaccine. Well, the acting commissioner of the FDA, Dr Janet Woodcock, has issued a statement saying that she plans to do that very quickly. Assuming this all happens as it's supposed to what's the timetable here for getting doses made and then distributing them without this is going to be fast doses are already made. As you previously reported there, there's four million doses ready to go. What happens now is what will get an authorization from the FDA. And they say they'll do that so we can expect that probably tomorrow. So Andy slave it who's chief advisor to the White House on these matters, says he expects the FDA to do that tomorrow Saturday. Then it's up to the CDC to decide what people should actually get This authorized vaccine. So the CDC s advisers see Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices will be meeting on Sunday, and they'll vote whether Americans should get the vaccine.

Is ready to roll with ease, The White House says immediately, which means probably Monday. Maggie quickly before we go. Can we get enough vaccine quickly enough to blunt the rising variants? That is the race? That's what everybody's worried about These variants.

The Conservative Political Action Conference happens every year but 2021 will be different
"In Orlando. It's called CPAC, the conservative political action Conference and with a closer look at this year's gathering, ABC News correspondent Andy Field Andy after losing the White House. What's the tone of the conference going to be this year? Well, the theme is called America On canceled. I think they probably got that from former President Trump, who was none too happy about being canceled by Twitter and Facebook and many other social media Basically, Silencing him on all those platforms after many of his tweets were considered, uh, inciting violence, and many of them in retrospect, appeared to have helped Spark the attack on the U. S. Capitol. So Republicans and certainly the Conservatives of this conservative political action conference are angry about this. They're saying that they're being silenced by liberal media. And they're going to speak out about it, which, ironically will be covered by many of the outlets that they considered to be liberal media. Well, it seems also and maybe on a grander scale. The big task for the Republicans is charting their future and and maybe unifying the party because it seems so at this point, so splintered. Well, it is. There was a survey that came out recently. That said 46% of Republicans would gladly join a new party headed by Donald Trump. In split off from the Republican Party. That's a significant number of Republicans who say they're more loyal to Donald Trump of the party. That's a concern for the rest of the party, and certainly Is going to go play into what this conservative political action conference is all about. This is usually the Super Bowl of folks trying to get attention to say, Hey, look at me. I want to run for president the next time around. Except the leader of that group appears to be the man who just was president and wants to get another shot at it. Let's talk more about the former commander in chief. I see that Donald Trump is on the guest list. What about that? And who else would we know who other famous names are on that list? Andy Well, former Secretary of state Mike Pompeo, who has also released We've heard rumblings that he might want to run for office. But would he do it against Donald Trump? We don't know Other people Tom Cotton Ted Cruz. Josh holy of Missouri. All of expressed some interest in the past or present and even future of trying to get the highest office in the land. So this is really kind of Ah, A tag team elbowing match to see who is going to get the most attention who makes the biggest splash here. And then what will former President Trump say? Well, he ignore what happened at the U. S. Capitol will Hey, talk about where he'd like to see the party will even say, Hey, I'm announcing I'm running again. That's all The mystery involved here, which is what former President Trump likes to do is a former TV host is He's the audience to make sure they tune in. Ted Cruz invited But after what happened

Supreme Court rejects Trump attempt to shield taxes from New York City District Attorney's Office
"His bid to keep years of financial records from being released to a prosecutor in New York, he says it's an example of prosecutors and attorneys general trying to take down political opponents using the law as a weapon. Um are you surprised by this Supreme Court decision? I'm the only thing that surprises me is that it took four months, but I think probably the reason it took four months is the Supreme Court wanted to stay out of anything? That looked like it was intruding into the 2020 election and the aftermath of it, But, you know, look, they are gonna look at it, and they're looking at it through the prism of whether there was bank fraud or tax fraud for insurance fraud. They have said for two years that they needed this information the financial information in order to complete their investigation, so now they're going to get the information, but I think it's you know, of all the things that they talk about in terms of potential legal peril. For former President Trump. I would say that the investigation by the Manhattan D A. Is the most serious one. How much could this affect his future in politics? Let's say hypothetically, he's charged with some financial crime and convicted I think that ah lot of the former president's current project to be influential in Republican politics and to get uh you know, trump friendly candidates. Lined up for all the different races that will be coming up in 2022 to think about making another run in 2024 his ability, then wheeled that kind of influence. I think hinges on a number of things, but one of them obviously is, you know the legal Situation, he said. He's going to be a lot less influential if he's under indictment, and he's gotta defend himself and his is financial enterprises real estate enterprise. He's going to be considerably less influential in politics, at least until he gets himself cleared If he can. Andy McCarthy, former federal prosecutor and Fox

GonNa call you governor. And I'll call you professor. Yeah. You call me whatever you want I. Really appreciate you joining with all yet going on I thought maybe appropriate way for us to start was maybe talk a little bit about Ruth Bader Ginsburg given the you know this is going to be put up on Wednesday I. Think we are all reeling from this. You were the attorney general for your the governor. Can you help us process the loss of Justice Ginsburg? Any reflections have well justice GINSBURG was an absolute titan in the legal community and I think for our nation as a whole she led not only with a superior intellect and wit. But also true compassion and to see someone. Or to lose someone that contributed in. So many ways from legal prowess the way she wrote her opinions to also some of the causes that she championed the example that she is set not just for women, but for men and not just for lawyers but four Americans very special. Person who gave countless years of service we're GonNa truly miss her and I hope that her legacy doesn't just get caught up in everything that's going on afterwards. It's important when we lose somebody like this that we take a little time to talk about the amazing additions brought to the world and also remember she's got a family to we're all just human beings and there are people that are truly missing her. That's a great point and I think she's going to lie in state in the Capitol. I believe this week, which is an incredibly well deserved honor. Especially, if you think about what she pioneered early in her career as a young lawyer. And Afar that women came in and just what it tells people as possible to do whether it's young girls whether it's anybody who feels like they're facing a set of insurmountable challenges. But I remember when as a college senior I think met Sandra Day. O'connor and listening to her life story. We, see a lot of the same in Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and others in that. There's a big world out there that you can make an impact in every time somebody like justice GINSBURG. Achieves what she'd achieved while also not losing her humanity. Shows you that that the most important? Muscles that we have our our hearts and certainly the most important gift we have been given by goddess, our ability to think and into reason, and I think she showed people that being powerful isn't about being physically big. It's about being strong in so many different ways and. She's really special and has provided such a special example for so many people and I think people found strengthen her no matter what they're dealing with took on cancer how many times and one it just a real powerful special individual and I want to if I can say to her family..

"Welcome in the bubble. This is Andy Slava Anzac. You know that somebody contacted me. Listen to the show and didn't know we were related. It's probably because I go by Zach on here. Zach's facts and in the beginning. Don't really say my last name. We haven't pointed out to people that you're my son people just. Think you're talented. PODCAST who? Happened to be working with. Well. I thought we sounded like, but clearly we don't. So the voices you just heard are some of the most distinctive voices in our culture both New, York borough voices Dr. Anthony Fauci and our guest today Senator Bernie Sanders Senator Sanders is going to be A. Sort of a surprise guest on the show. He and I had a chance to talk this week. About a very exciting initiative. He and I are working on which we will lay out for you on the show and has a lot to do with how we successfully combat this virus together, and we talked about a number of other things which were great as well. I think the big talker around the country now is of. What's safe and what's not safe to do? We have a kind of new focus around the southern states where I think people are indoors lot. That's because of something that we're going to talk to Zach. About which is you know when people are indoors the virus? Spreads more, so we'll talk a little bit about that. We have been doing some work this week to get states and cities to close down bars. Don't be mad at me. And still think they can do things to go and I know that it's tough on the bar. Owners and we're GONNA have to do what we can't support them, but unfortunately it's a source of a lot of spread so things get colder near you and you end up indoors because of the cold, then things may look a little bit more like they look in Arizona and Texas where you are so be very very very vigilant. We are not through this thing yet so Zach. Let's talk about aerosols, Asian..
"andy" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter
"What do you do? Do you have voices? It was a lot like that. So that whole second season just I'm on my foot out the door here clearly. That was weird and just played a lot of straight man roles which I enjoyed actually like. I enjoy being grounding elements and scenes. Yeah Yeah it's an interesting challenge right but it's not a way to stand down. Yeah it's like being the Lineman on the football team. It's just like it's I'm going to assume you're right. Yeah final compression. Just rely behind writing but there were great people rich Tele Rico work there Tammy Sager Working Michael Cohen was wow Yeah some very funny. People Guy Mo Collins so funny Alex Burstein was. Oh my God yeah. Funny people and Blink Blink and was gone by then. Yeah he's great Well then then when you were out here because one thing that always struck me about you that I found out years ago and I think I found this out just walking by with you. You like when you first got out of here. You bought property I did. You bought a town high did I did. And then Clinton blew my mind that that GROWNUP PRESENCE OF MIND. Yes right from a one point. Whatever grade point average to being a property owner? Yeah well that I have to credit the woman who is now my wife yet again. 'cause I mean. When did you guys start dating? A nine hundred ninety eight. I was twenty seven inch in New York Yeah and so. We were long distance at that. She was in New York and I was in La and and was talking about. I had done a bunch of commercials and I had been on TV now for whatever thirteen episodes so I had this money and she was like well. Don't throw money away on rant. You might as well park a bunch of that as a down payment and the interest is deductible like all the stuff I never would have known right. There was an accountant. And so yeah. I bought a condo around the corner. From what is now the theater. And that's why the UC theaters there. Because I used to go see shows at that theatre which was the Tamarin Theater. Yeah because I just walk around the corner and see whatever was their shows and then when you came to town they were like we're looking for a space and I happen to know that that's base was available and that the owners of the theater wanted to lease it out and so I was like well. There's a theater around because we're a crazy. You're totally seeped. In real estate back there was a crazy Greek soap opera star who mounted an extremely expensive production of Hamlet. Taking out billboards all around town and he refurbish the Tamarin Theater. As whatever was the Vittore Sylvia no theater? The hamlet had one performance in closed. Because he he. His Greek accent was so thick nobody could understand a word he was saying my God. That's fantastic the LA weekly ran a whole story about this crazy guy and it's the but so now all of a sudden the theater's empty he had leased it for a year and then just left town and so I was paying a lot of attention to the space just so oh the owner's in that theater leased it out for year to this. Greek soap opera star. What's that going to be like? Oh this guy has left town out of show. Did you know one show at I walked? My dog passed it like as the there were all these champagne bottles. There were like one hundred champagne bottles the lobby and it was like opening night and I was like all. We're checking that out for sure. Didn't get you said we mean you and your dog. Yes the dog about anywhere in their broker also after after mad. Tv Now when do you carry? Does she move out? She came out toward the end of that disaster. Where the writing on the wall? Yeah and we're you engaged now. We got engaged about a year after that about a year after that. Yeah and So what what happens after that? Is it just kind of you know yet that was my? That was a time when I truly was depressed. Not something that just happened to be very often in my life but I. I was out here committed to this place. I bought this condo. I was done with TV. I did not know I still had that agent at that time. Who didn't still didn't want anything to do with me. Like I didn't know what to do or where to go or anything and somehow managed to survive for two years being like I would audition for the principal role in a commercial and I would get hired for a background role happening but I was getting paid as a principal but I was in the background of commercial at that happened a bunch of times. Yeah and then. And that's and that was at the time too and that was actually sort of lucrative. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah and then I was doing bits. I was taken all the bits that have been rejected from. It's turning them into Solo Performance. Pieces doing them while you're on mad. Tv performing out in the world. Yeah a little bit because Matt. Besser had come to town and he was given Thursday nights at I A- West Okay program and so he put together. A show was me patent Oswald Brian Poe Sane Jerry Minor and Matt Besser Daniel Snyder. And Sean Conroy. Wow would come and do new material. Every week was the idea so I would. Just turn a sketch into a monologue. Great every Thursday night which became my album. But that was that was your outlet. Yeah that was my outlet which album if you guys don't know the album nine sweaters pause this go listen as it is is truly one of my favorite comedy album of all time. It's really really fucking funny. I got I've got to see you do those bits Live to which is sort of. It's sort of like you know the differences in the like. There's like I saw you do the singing group. What IS THE SKIP? Skip skipper Scott McCabe. And the day I saw you do skip around gang live once which but like that one is the one that I remember more because it was just like it was a different one it was just really meaner and sicker. Yeah then even the one. That's on the album on the album. And Oh my God. It was about as funny as I've ever seen anything. Because I remember seeing you around here to like doing stuff at the old Largo on Melrose on Fairfax and like I remember one night. You did something you came up and you're just a stand up comedian. That never got to anything. Yeah is there a name for that? I call him Jerry. O'hearn Jerry o'hearn his that sound on the album though it's on the album as a bonus track but the but it was on the comedy death ray album okay because Oh my God. It's just like like I couldn't believe because you do absolutely nothing. I never anything fucking screaming. It's all stuff like have been I mean. Come on the world's crazy just like that and just say this was interesting. I mean these people walking around on a lot about this. I'm sitting here going all right now. What are you talking about? Oh my God I find. Oh my God I remember. Longo never laughed at nothing more than when well that night. Yeah Yeah that's a fun. That's and that came from a bit. That Andy Sokaia used to do on the subway where I would challenge myself on the on the ride from like Union square out to the Lorimer Street. Stop on the L. To talk for as long as I could without ever getting to a point if I could just I'm just beyond the Pale at this point for me to say that to me. I mean here I am what is happening in that voice just to just.
"andy" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter
"Andy won't mind things they would have been at the show in those days where it's like. We will get Andy in elaborate fucking uncomfortable costume right. We're not sure when CONAN's come under win the other actor's GonNa get Andy into that thing. He never yells it buddy. He ever seen him. Stop Melda Marcos for three hours. He won't say anything because Nice a certain point you do have to start. Oh Yeah you have to start being a day putting up a little bit. Yeah but Tommy Black writer on the show. My friend used to. We used to do a bit and like people would come into the room. And and Tommy be sitting at the window smoking a cigarette and hey have you met my new publicist. And and that's me. And then he would pull open a door next to me like my desk drawer and just take like fifty headshots. Throw him out a window. Just throw them out to win on the Sixth Avenue. Fluttering down fifty of like getting the word out there see like the wood set out set stuff out to sell like books and old purses instead of my head shots sale. Someone who just gathered up like I could sell this. Yes I haven't been run over about taxis and you. You started working on the show for us. Yeah Yeah how did that? How did that start? My understanding is I went to an audition for the Dana carvey show. Okay addition for the Dana Carvey show and had a good audition on and got a callback which I did not know what the combat is going to be. But it was just me sitting at a table with Dana. Carvey and Roberts Michael and Dino and Louis C. K. And all in Robert Andino and Louis for people who don't know had been working on the coach just prior to this right and then they let you do the carpet and it was. Just we're just chatting and I'm I'm supposed to kind of go into whatever bits voices or whatever things I can do at this table and it was really weird. I mean I know that they were trying to just be like. Let's just have a casual hang with judging you and I just wasn't there. I wasn't like a mental space to feel like yeah. We're all equals like a creative people I was I was twenty five or twenty four or something so they did not hire me addition to be cast. Yeah it'd be a cast member on the dinner at extensively what it was. Ford was that like overt at that. You would need that or did you think it was Chitchat. No I because I had auditioned. I had put together like five minutes of character. Bits yeah an initial audition and now. This was the callback so yeah I thought it was. I was there for an ankle and I didn't get but smuggle this is just the kind of person that Roberts Michael is. He sort of took note of me and talked me up to other places and he'd Conan casting was just like you know we didn't hire this Guy Dan Kardashova's funny. You should use them and so I started getting used in Conan's sketches. Yeah so that was. That was huge. It was fun. Yeah it was a really yet the UCB those guys see those initial four original members men when they opened a theatre and it opened it up to you guys. I mean we really benefited from that. Yes it was. It was talked about it before and here it was hard to find really truly funny people funny people in the way that we want them to be funny. Oh yeah yeah absolutely. Because that idea a grounding some ground grounding the things that need to be grounded so that the funny things can be funny was not a new idea but it was clarified by the UCLA guys when they came down and started talking about truth and comedy. Yeah yeah the incongruous element and all that it was what was happening in the alternative comedy scene. There were so many bits that were a plant in the audience. You know like yeah like if you went to rebar before Luna Lounge you would see like three bits that had plants in the audience and it was all about like. How much can you fool me into thinking that this breakdown in your bid is actually happening? And so that was that idea of like we're really committing to this moment and I'm trying to grounded as best. I can and you needed that. You very often needed that it Conan and so i. I'm not surprised that that world you know spawned so many people who do that because and I did a lot of bits that glazer wrote and Glade so many Glazer's bits are all about. Just the total deadpanned commitment to this reality. Yeah and and I don Glazer who Did D locate. What was it? D- locate aided. Yeah Yeah Glazer. Love's guy that's something about a werewolf all right I can't remember I forget Google it. Yeah so funny and then from there was was mad TV the next thing. Yeah When you're was that that was two thousand fall two thousand and how long it had been on. Did it just start? Oh Man. Tv. Think premiered in ninety six or four. Maybe Ninety Ninety Four. Yeah this was the sixth season and Yeah. That was a weird one. They brought you. La Well No. I come out to do a pilot season so twenty years ago today. Wow I was sitting in a duplex on Glendale Boulevard. Up The street from the Astro family diner wondering why wasn't getting any auditions? That was my pilot's just did you rent out an apartment. Did you take a lease. I was planning to stay in the guest room of an old high school friend who had apparently not run that. Bhai her live in boyfriend. Oh boy so I arrived. Let Their one night and the next morning. I hear this knock on the door and it's him say let's go find you an apartment all right all right so I ended up signing a year lease and I wanted to be there for like two or three months and I had to buy a refrigerator a stove not the plan and then I wasn't getting any auditions yeah. I would literally like get dressed up on my best clothes and go down to the United Talent Agency and sit in the lobby waiting to see my agent face to face because she wasn't returning my calls so my God you believe that don't do that. Show business ASPIRA SPA. Sometimes they thought I worked there because I was all dressed right right not too well to exactly and when they understood that I was an actor hoping to see my agent they thought I was crazy and I was. Yeah it was a crazy thing to do. But that was a bad that was bad and then and prior to that. I auditioned for SNL in the summer of nineteen ninety nine. I really worked hard on my audition for that. I got that good and then I auditioned for Mad TV and they were like yeah. Come come test for we WANNA hire you and I didn't want to actually said No. I said no like three times and then I had that miserable pilot season and then I said Oh yeah. I'll I'll do that ours. Is that why you were kind of? I did yeah I did. And how did SNL pan out just sort of tumbleweeds or did you hear anything? I did. I got good feedback. I've heard that garth and seer liked me. I knew Adam McKay a little bit at that time and he was like. Yeah Yeah I hear good things about you. Don't don't fret that you haven't heard they haven't decided anything it's like. I'm in the mix but then nothing then leads. Yeah and I was twenty eight at that time and my agent told me if anybody asked you're twenty. I don't know so so I like that but that planted the idea in my mind that this this is my shot. You know what I mean. I'm aging out of what they're looking for right now. Apparently so so. When they didn't hire me I was like that's never happening. Is that person? Still your agent know a person still antigen you. So how was it? What was what was kind of a culture shock. I mean yeah it was crazy. That was a crazy time I have. I still struggle to contextualized it in my life and career because his it does seem different than like because the things that you aside from review. But just the things that you've been in. I mean aside from the Yogi bear movie eastbound down eastbound down pilot. And just like that to be a part of that. There's you done some like really like working within your own kind of ethos scenes I have. I've been very lucky to be able to do that. That's correct and so mad. Tv was not quite that. Yeah and that's why even though I had no job and no prospects and no plans I said no to it. Three new like I watched it and said I don't know what I would do on that show. I really don't but they persisted and I had nothing going on so so you know when I took the job their way. The contract was structured. They were offering me four episodes for twenty eight thousand dollars for sounds. Nice but it's not television. Money people four twenty grand total. Yes Oh wow twenty eight but I watch and once I've just people don't once the agent and whoever gets a piece of that it's it's very. Yeah it's forty cents on the dollar unlike that by the way so it's like an agent a lawyer both of whom called me and said we weren't able to nudge them. One dollars still expect to fifteen percent but yeah so I thought I'm just GonNa go there and I'll collect that money and I'll do these four episodes and I'll get the fuck out of there and go on with the rest of my life but something happened when I got there which was like this desire to succeed and it was partly they were nagging me like that's for sure like right after pursuing me so hard. Yeah they wouldn't give me a date to show up. And then when I got there the attitude was like Oh. Did we hire you? Okay well see if you can get on the air. I guess you know it was like that. It had the desired effect. Taking me like how do how do I fuck me? Fuck you Russia else mother. How do I get on the air? Make myself useful and I did that enough in those four episodes that they didn't pick me up for nine more. The rest of that season is featured player and again like hostile to try and get myself on the air and meanwhile like I'm not liking not liking it. Yeah you know. And then they brought me back for a second season which I think i. I think there was a weird thing where some of the more popular cast members were negoti renegotiating. Their contracts at the point at which my contract came up so they didn't know who was going to be on the chauvinist utility later and then all those people came to terms that it was kind of like a really was genuinely. Oh you're back Okay.

"Way like maybe you should check out. It won't bite your child. I don't know if that the seventies thing behind a dog in the classified so seems strange to me now as a kid or you or performer. Or I mean amount. Start to come out. Are you a performer at home? Are you like good the funny one? Yeah I used to put on tap dance shows. I'm a hearth. Gene Kelly Fan. Nice and yeah I try and tap shoes or just didn't have real time and then at school I was. I like to be funny and I also really liked to make the teachers laugh. Like to me was my favorite thing and so in first grade. this teacher recommended that. I take drama class. Because I was I was a ham and I didn't take that drama class because I imagine myself in wearing tights and singing somehow and I didn't I didn't Wanna do either of those things whereas now try and get you out and stop when I think it's because we went to see Peter Pan on Broadway. Sandy Duncan was up there in these tights and singing and stuff and I was just like what it is I want to do. They're not not a real man like man like me but that production of Peter Pan was very memorable to me because Captain Hook at some point in the show. He's out in front of the curtain with me probably while there's changing over from the nursery. The Netherlands upper and he's giving a speech kind of directly to the audience or whatever and he says. I'm going to get that Peter Pan and a little boy in the audience yelled and he or and he goes. Oh yes I will and the place went bananas for this one. Little minor unscripted moment and it was so exciting. I remember to this day of just like he was so in character. He seemed like he was expecting it. It didn't throwing for one second mazing moment and I later my mom keeps all the playbills and I saw recently. That was James Hewitt. Who would go on to replace her villages on? Fantasy Island and then play Mr Belvedere band. At the time that he played Captain Hook he was royal. Shakespeare company headed amazing resonate. Anyway that yeah I that stuck in my mind that was your first notion that you wanted to be an improvised. Yeah I think so actually. Yeah John John John. John Waters says that a Captain Hook was his first gay role model. Captain Okay. That's pretty very very funny. James Domian bit about gay villain. Yes yes or remember when you and I took our daughters to Disneyland and it was Gay Day yes and the only characters we saw were all brought out all the villains Captain Hook and Ursula and the lifts and malicious and the one from Kerala Deville right right right I will say this has got to be the liaison. I know what they're doing. They know what they're doing. They know they know their audience. And A and I actually. I said something about it online because we were tweeting about it. We were live tweeting. We were live. Tweeting are accidents gay day which another thing I loved is about three times. Moms came up to you about your daughter to say. Does she have sunscreen stupid. Gay Dad don't know your fair daughter. Roast in the Sun censoring well aware. She is slathered but I said something about the villains and there were people that were just didn't know they do like why wouldn't they? Yeah you know anyhow so we in plays in school. Did you start performing like that? I mean are you. Yeah there was some play in third grade and then I was a fire truck in the velveteen rabbit. In fifth grade improvised a little bit in my my one line got to laugh and then I said something like that. I made a comment out of character. About how funny. I thought the line was today. That's a good one. Yeah right and then Yeah and then it was a in in junior high was in the play every year and took drama classes. Junior high always always doing that. Yeah however a highschool had did five plays a year which is Jesus cry out. There was a guy from another town. Who would this guy named Brian Gnashing? Who was like I mean? Six five and obese and just this booming voice and he taught music at some other school and he would come to our school after school every day and and put up five good productions. Wow and my sophomore year was my first year at high school for stupid reasons. But they look high school. Yeah publicized yeah and I was in four of the five shows and I was the lead in one but my grades were so bad that my parents forbade me from doing theater after that. They told me I couldn't do it anymore. And so that's when I started to Do we also had a television production class at my high school. The local cable access was located in the high school and so there was like there was a switcher and cameras and a makeshift studio. And that's when I started doing that after school hours which you know because I was making my own schedule now. It wasn't like I have to be a rehearsal. And there's a play that you're gonNA find out about it was I. It was like acting and writing on the sly. Yeah Yeah and you were doing schoolwork. You're working after school on school assured I mean to your IRA. It's a study group group and we work very hard really getting those grades up there. I don't know if it'll be reflected in the report card but we're really working hard so junior senior year there are no place at all just just the TV production stuff. Yeah and was it was? It was more sort of like in this morning's lunch lady. News was there was there was some of that. I did a game show. That was a total rip off of remote control. Remember like a comedy game show and then Andy Blitz and I went to high school together and we both know I did not know a comedy writer who is a Conan writer and has gone on to do lots of different things and worked on review review on your show. Yeah yeah he and I were buddies in high school. We marry funny very funny. Oh my God yeah. We met in tenth grade and then and so he and I collaborated on sketch comedy in and made sketch shows. Yeah yeah on video. That's funny. It was Andy and Andy because the first time I knew and you were working with Andy Sekondi right I I know. Andy's that's making podcasts. Magic the to Andy's again only interested in people who don't have anything combat weird other names gun for Sandberg. He'll he will accept me. Yes so so then so you and Andy are doing that and do you kind of keep doing that through high school and then out of high school. Yeah so I. I had no interest in going to college at all. No but But then I read a biography. Where are you going to do? I didn't know I didn't know I just knew that like I didn't want to be sitting in a classroom anymore because I was. I was not good at that. You know I didn't know what I was GONNA do. My parents were adamant that I go to college or but I did not. I didn't have any plans or thoughts until I read this biography of David Letterman. That said he went to college for Television and radio for communications which I didn't know it was a thing and so I told my parents I could see myself doing that. And they were thrilled and so I ended up going. Ethica college because it has a television radio program which I did not get into because my grades weren't good enough But I was in proximity to that world of ten so I did. There was a sketch comedy show at college and I did that. And that's where I met Andy and John Bowie. Oh Wow yeah. He was also on that show. Yeah and so you never actually did. What was your major then. My major started off his English and my plan was to transfer into the School of human grades. Yes but my first semester grades. I'll never forget my first semester. Gpa was one point four eight. Oh my and So that ended that I was never going to be able to transfer into school communications. Gosh I had taken an acting elective and and I really enjoyed it and so I was just like well. I guess all auditioned for the theater department and I did. I got in there and they don't care about Ukraine. They didn't care the grades at All. Yeah so I graduated. I was a I was. I was in the BFA program for a little while. And then it but I ended up graduating with a b. A in drama Nice. Now what's the difference? Bfa in the Ba- well the east. It was it was sort of created as acting studio kind of you. It was just basically you were moving into the building. You were there all the time you were taking scene study classes and you were helping out on the crew and you were just fully immersed in. Yeah and that didn't work for me because I had been there a year already making friends in other departments who were and I wanted to be over at the you know the school communications making sketch show and being a student film Ryan and that's funny. People were funny. People were making movies to Joe. Can BOOSTER ITHACA IT? Could you know because he has a similar story? Then I think in college there was sort of the higher echelon and I think it was a it was just it was causing me deja Vu. Thank you had a very similar thing where he was like. Yeah I'd like to be in there. It seems more prestigious but it doesn't seem as much fun. Yeah Yeah Yeah I think. That's I think a lot of comedy people who go to college like all those people and went to Emerson College and all that stuff like they studied television radio and film like the funny. That's that's where the funny people are there. That's why I wanted to be. Yeah I think that yeah. I went to film school and I've probably it's probably very much case because I also thought about being in the drama but it's like I took a cup. I took a couple of acting classes. Maybe only one maybe couple of trying to pat my resume. Maybe it was just one and I. It just seems so silly and boring and not the kind of stuff. I was interested in and then when I got film school I realized and still feel this way like I. Don't you know being on stage? It's okay what I really want to do is act in television and motion pictures and that's the kind of acting that that's the technique. I'm interested in learning how to not on Broadway M- Yeah No. I have no doing long day's journey tonight or anything. No I'd rather like I don't either be on season. Two of the outsider. The Theater Department at College is very focused on New York theater. As like what? We're training sure. You know understandably I I was always just like mom. What were you folks? What was their attitude is. You're going through this. They they did not think that I should be an actor. I think they like the idea of me getting a degree in communications. Which would set me up to be like. I don't know to add sales at Radio. Stations working in the newsroom. But at the point it was I came home with one point. Four eight grade point average. It was like well whatever it takes you know and so. I was just a while. They'll take me in this program. And so they were fine and then they got me a subscription to backstage as a gift when I graduated college as a kind of but my dad also bought me a suit as ritualistic buying a suit when you Graduate College.

No of course I've heard it. Oh all right now. Great thank you. I like your podcast. To thanks. Pal provides one st- her the era. You know the. I'm too scared to do Improv away. When is this going to be heard by people? How should I know? You don't know what Nag we get it hot. Maybe I'll make news then and announce my new podcast. That's exciting right now. Shelly do right yeah. We're all this is. The show is started. Okay so you know everyone. Welcome to questions Galea's my guests. He knew that because it says it right on the fucking screen when you push on play. It says Andy Daily. Sell Sometimes. The podcast will just start. And you haven't chosen to start it true anyhow. It happens to me sometimes. We're podcast the daily podcast pilot project project as you know there's a character my name Dalton Wilcox who has tried his hand at two podcast pilots and believe it or not one of them got picked up and so We are recording it now. It is called bananas for Bonanza With Dalton Wilcox and each episode focuses on one episode of the classic. Intelligent Western Bonanza. Thank God for me. Is that where you're getting the? They're all on Youtube. I don't know why I wonder every time I'm just every every episode of bonanzas on Youtube. I watched the me TV. You know what I'm saying. I don't know what that is. It is it's a channel of what used to be. Uhf You know how for kids out there used to TV. Used to just be two through where you had. Her teen had channel. Two four five seven nine eleven thirteen. I think thirteen ended up B and that was. Bhf That would that's wearing high frequency for me. Thirteen was PBS. And then you had a separate dial yeah or the UHF Jackson and saying beyond thirteen. It had a separate which was UHF. Yeah which was your shitty channels that was like somehow like a hundred channels only clearly tune in about five and right exactly yeah like move the actual antenna but that was like that's where they would show the reruns of the Brady Bunch. You know eight times a day and it was all reloads reruns and old movies and that's where you're kind of creature feature stuff. Yeah so me. Tv Channel Twenty here on Mojo on if you were had regular TV it'd be on Channel Twenty and it is just old TV it's just Colombo's Co Jax and Mashes and my mother the car and fucking dragnet just like and it is. It is such like a palliative to just. Yeah like you feel like Oh this is. I'm just going to watch this episode of Cannon About Obese Private detective or Barnaby Fucking Jones. All your love boat. Charlie's angels Wonder Woman Linda. Carter wanted to credible hulk. The incredible hulk is on there sometimes too. But it's just it's like watching all the time but I'm sure the commercials are modern commercials. Oh yeah they had the old commercials on there that it's fantastic because like the wonder woman like I hadn't seen wonder woman since I was a child into a woman and a Linda. Carter has I mean you know. She's a Buxom Beautiful Woman. Yes but PM that she has the most winning charismatic energy. Wow Yeah really like I watched Yeah Yeah I know it was either for Post P bessant boys or girls. But I mean I don't think I was either one of those things at the time but with hilarious is her main accomplices lyle wagoner and I was watching one episode and the parachuted into like some evil guys island where he was literally trying to control the weather literally that was their plot point and she they they parachuted in. Lisle Wagner was wearing a sports shirt open at the collar with gold chains Santa Belt slacks and zip up boots to pants. She was wearing like a blouse like tied at the center. Oh She's trying to blend in. You know they were going to lunch. And she had high heels she'll heels on and she's parachuting in in high heels and they were like trying to blend in. It's a military encampment wearing casual clothes. Okay now what was done? In SECRET AGENT FACILITATED BECAUSE. I wondered why he was a famous person. I would him on Carol Burnett and it would be kind of an Lau wagner. Yeah be like a handsome utility player now a people. I don't know how people a lot of people this now. Virtually every rental trail trailer in town is is his. Yeah whenever I'm one of those Verde trailers which are the nice ones. Yeah yeah I am thinking like. I don't know if this is lyle. I think this competition. I know idea if he's still with us. Yeah the life of living in a trailer. It's really fun but there is. They certainly run the gamut. They're very heavy on the southwest motif. Yeah that's for sure. Yeah bones of Steers housecall art in a sort of you know Navajo print my big beef with trailers. Is I want someplace to sit and eat my breakfast where? I don't have to stare at myself in the mirror. That's all I want out of a trail right right right someplace to sit with the table. That's not right in front of a mirror. You could request that. They like spray painted black. Yeah tape up things. I'm like one GIG away from being able to say something and have been when I was on a when I was on the show quintuplets I was in a trailer and it was a two banger. I Ha- you as they call it. There was it was halved on the other half was Rebecca CRESCO OFF MY TV wife and mine. The roof over the ceiling of it was covered in black mold on. That's not good and I kept saying because you know I I'm not I mean now I would say something I'd say like the teamsters because it's teamsters that charge spoke I'd say like I a lot of mold on the ceiling of my trailer and they'd be like all right. Well look at it and then nothing happened. Nothing about four weeks in like one of the production managers had something to to ask me and she stepped into my trae she knocked in and I said Yeah Command she stepped into Oh my God trailer pulsating God. Yeah I've been saying stuff and she's just can't be like next day. There was a brand new one is. It's like a grownup saw it right. You know someone who has respect for you yourself. Yeah Yeah I had another trailer on another show that literally smelled like shit smelled like someone just had just freshly dumped in there constantly and I would tell I would tell the the transport guys and they go. Okay we'll check it out and then they'd say we took care of it and then go back. And what they had done is taken a can of raspberry scented air freshener just and just so it smells like shit with like Raspberry Syrup on it and that that ended up being like the entire plumbing system was full of and Moult on that one. So yeah yeah that's funny. How are you from you and I have known each other for million years and you and I I? I haven't buttered Yep yet but you're one of my favorite people on Earth and that's not just because you're a brilliantly funny person but you're also one of the most genuinely kind and moral people That I know which is why all it's all the more striking than most of your characters are just fucking creep pervert. Chrea horrifying monster. How does that happen are you? I mean when you started coming up with pervert creeps real aware of like. Oh this might be some off gassing no no. I don't think so I mean but it might be. Yeah but I think I think it began from APU understanding that when I take the stage. I looked like howdy doody and realizing that it would be fun to be to start out that way and Disa- prize the audience by taking a turn into something darker disgusting disturbing ever and I just really have always enjoyed playing with that but then you know I have since come to understand that like Narcissism is a real topic for me like it's really I'm very very interested in narcissism and you know Merrill Marco has written a lot about narcissism and she has really pointed out that some of our favorite comic characters are narcissism like every Bill Murray character every bill. Murray character is a fucking brick. Yeah I mean every Sitcom has obviously George Castanza's a perfect example of a of a total narcissist right. Yeah Yeah and so she she has. I think it's a Web. I don't know if she still doing it. But called narcissists. Say The darnedest things where people can kind of send him things that narcissists have said to them that are so ridiculous but they they truly mean it and it's something that a character would say in a comedy. Yeah Yeah Yeah. So anyway that that all sort of got me thinking about the inherent hilariousness of people who are just into their own thing and have been so unwilling to see other people that they have become delusional. You know Jank happens and we see it with the president. Who's like a poster child for right right right now? He's just he he. He is so immune to Critical thinking and and information that is not of his own creation that That he's no longer in touch with the the truth rather than just what makes him feel good. Yeah you remember that book the Corrections Jonathan Francis. Never read it okay. I got a very bad thing with attention span and reading me to time every once in a while. I'll power through a book for a long time ago. I read that book. And there's a line in there. One of the characters says something about all the context but that his parents brought him into the world without asking his opinion. Would that really struck a chord with me and I really do think that like for for our own purposes my wife and I created these two people and brought them into this place and like I owe them an apology. I it's bad. Not that bad ails all right sure. Yeah yeah no I but I but I do feel like I invited you to a party. I think I had better accommodate you to some extent. Yeah you know what I mean yes and I don't think that that was the sensibility that my parents had. Who were just like? Yeah we're creating a family and the family is doing this and we go to church on Sundays and you play bass bond Saturday. This is what we're doing and you gotta get with it. Yeah and what I use..
