"You do the broadest comedy to the craziest Shakespeare and everything in between. Yeah but it took that gesture. Yup and all of a sudden the whole business was like. Oh let's look at you for some comedies. I and then within a year parks and REC started. Yeah and I I had been on. Will and grace but and so people thought of me as being funny and I started thinking to myself as being funny or more funny than was maybe average funny and But it wasn't until the two one grace ended that I did a show. That was completely improvised. Shaw never done Improv. She's scared to do it or sketch. Comedy for that Nar and and I realize I was actually pretty good at it and ever since then every other show done outside of and grace They not only welcome improvisation but they almost expect it. Yeah and if you're not able to do it it's sort of a a problem. Yeah Yeah so That also changed me and it it. It changed the people that I was drawn to. And who are drawn to be and it's it are now. Our whole circle of friends is our entire circle of friends but they're primarily people who come from comedy. Yeah and WANNA life people. It's a very caring and sharing comparison any other branch of the entertainment people. Really you know. It's the people are supportive of other. They'll give you you give somebody a job in your show. They give you a job in their show. It's a lot less competitive and I love that. I do think I do think that there is somewhat of the qualitative difference between People that are in comedy that sort of sketch based Improv based or comedic acting and Silica standups like stand ups or kind of their own capsule. They mixed Kinda well together but they don't but they're not used to playing with others as their bread and butter so I do think that like I do. I HAVE. I have number stand up sitter dear friends and they are every bit as funny as any Improv Person. Every bit as kind warm. But there's also like an I mean it's a cliche about the standup that comes off stage and it's like onstage. It's a party but offstage it's a funeral you know and and that that. Kinda does exist and I think it's that's much less so in in the more collaborative comedy forms you know because they obviously it's like it's amazing that we make living at this. It's ridiculous that we make a living at this and it's that's not like why you didn't start doing it because you wanNA beyond snl or on a Sitcom started because Jesus crisis is fun You know I'm you know it's like somebody. That's good at playing basketball. You WanNa play basketball with people that can really shoot. You know we whatever your life situation you. I think it naturally occurs to you purely organically that Oh something. The general mood could be improved here. Yeah I have this funny feeling. You guys oops. I fell down everyone laughs. You're like oh I know. I know why I was sent here. Yes yes get out. The BANANA PEELS. Yeah. Yeah Well I think it's time satellite too. I know it seems town this very very extra super special episode of in bed with Nick and Megan the beloved number one world. Famous podcast starring.

"I want to show up and they're like who are you so I came on Conan was talking about my name and how Irish should as in you said it. He said Megan Mullaly. And we're making jokes off of that and you said Middle Name Potato I. Of course I've always never slugging great the settled. Megan p Pima Loullie beaver Potato all the Irish stuff I also to have a interesting relationship with Irish culture because a they don't get any more Irish than he does and there are. There are times like when I look at his face and it is like that face does not belong in this century faces. Yeah exactly in a bog with cupboard in tweed but also to in Chicago. Irish culture is like it's almost oppressive at a point and Did you did you come from Chicago? I grew up in a town called York Phil which is sixty miles west. And you're kind of Kankakee area right. Aren't you halfway between Manuka is just I know I remember Manuka. Yeah I lived in Chicago played. Football gets Manuka a few times to northwestern than I lived in Chicago for many years into theater. We all have that. Yeah Yeah on the occasion that we would play your villain sports as a much bigger school. Yeah so know. Imagine a team of Nick offerman verses a team of Andy Richter's which is normal sized people versus Herculean Bobbins. There were there was a town. There was a little tiny town called. Norway guess what? A lot of the people were Norwegian and and in fact that was because we were Swedish and we. Would you know what that we well? I mean we're a lots of everything but we chose to celebrate the Swedish stuff because it's a lot less problematic than celebrating the German part. She's look there's a few gangs in the German part mainly Swedish. Yeah we're mostly Swedish. Exactly like fucking trump. You know. He's straight up crowd and he's like I'm Swedish. You know but In Norway to is where we would go to get our Luda Fisk at Christmas time. Do you guys know ludicrous. No I know what it is festival. You're talking cod yet. Lie Cured Cod that you cook all day in a cream sauce out it. Oh it was the most vile shit but in my steph. Grandfather was Pir Swede and hated it but like it's like one of those punishment foods that people have to submit themselves to because of their cultural identity. You know But Norway tiny nothing town kicked everybody's asking and asking basketball because they were all like seven foot tall vikings and So yeah it would you could really. You could tell the difference. The size of the school would relate to the size of the people to did you play in Did you play football? I did yeah. I played baseball. Basketball and football. Football was my best sport. Yeah but it was I forget the classifications. But we were you know Two or three a York Ville was like five. Yeah and so a yard field was small relative. Yeah sure yet compared to the suburbs. I know I want you to champion. I went to Champaign Urbana for two years. Yeah maybe went. Eighty four to eighty six and I started there I knew I wanted to do something creative. But as I'm sure you know coming from Newport like when did you? When did you really believe that you could make a living as an actor coming from Manuka? A huge part of origin story is that the world said. You can't go in like you. Don't go into the arts. People don't do that same. Ihop took a girl friend to an audition at the University of Illinois. And I'm fortuitously medical theater students rose like hang on. What's this and they said? Yeah basically I found out you can get a degree in doing plays and you can go to Chicago and get paid to be in plays and this was such an epiphany and I was like I knew it. I knew you could go into the arts. Yeah Yeah Yeah and so I went plays in school. Sure Yeah But but I you know as a junior at the time in high school when you're supposed to pick your college and be picking your career path and just literally the entire world was like no you can't go into entertainment. That's yeah no one's ever done it. Yeah it's like saying you want to be an astronaut right. Yeah you know Yeah so that was. I came from that to that very same thing and I was even. I wanted to be an actor but I couldn't admit you know I. It seemed far as the midwestern phrase of Tooting Your own horn. It was to to self-aggrandizing so I thought well be a writer because I you know I I was always funny kid and I always had i. I'm good writer. You know just ansars. I'll do writing so high school guidance. Counselor you're where you're going to go to college. What are you gonNA study conversation and I say I want to be a writer because also journalism then now? I don't really journalism I said. More like you know like sorta creative writing race or maybe even for TV shows or movies and he went do journalism. I mean you can do with that stuff on the side and brave soul that I was. I went okay. All do journalism size started at you and I was going to go into their journalism school. Which is a program that they're college. Communication doesn't start until your junior year so I was just GonNa do Liberal Arts and sciences and that's what I did for the first two years and early on into my sophomore year. You Go and you meet a dean at the college. Communications is sort of talk about you know you have to maintain a good GPA. Which I had and sort of talk about what you're in for in the next year and kind of plays into classes and things and I told her what I was interested in. She said you know we're going to train you to be a reporter and I don't really want to be a reporter and and I said I said I really would rather sort of like right fictional things I said or maybe even you know documentary kind of things. I said that or essays but I don't want to be a reporter and she said Oh. We shouldn't be at this school and I was like. Oh should I be in the college of Fine Arts learning creative writer? English learning creative writings. Because normally you should be at U. OF I. She's like if you want to. If you want to write for television and movies you should go to film school and to that point. I'd never I was going to go to four years of College at University of Illinois. And it was like she hit me in the face with a bat. I was just stunned and I walked up less than a minute later. She's right so I went to. I couldn't afford either co so I went to Columbia College in Chicago and went to Film School Columbia College. Which at the time was way. Shittier than it is now. It's really come up. It's really something now. And they have a La Campus. You know they didn't have any kind of like La Chicago pipeline. Although they do they did have some. I think it started when people started to come out here and be successful then it sort of created this kind of pipeline back and forth and you know as you guys were talking not really knowing or being allowed to think that you could have a career in the arts I felt like I could have her in the arts but I was embarrassed to really be aggressive or you know not aggressive. But I still don't WanNa even say the word aggressive because it embarrasses me but I didn't I was When I took an acting class at the beginning of my freshman year dropped out of northwestern and he dropped out of it because I found it profoundly embarrassing. I didn't understand what a theater kid was. And I didn't know how to roll around on the floor and pretend I was something else but I'm wondering you know. Having established that we all had that affliction to one degree or another. If that is something that is is disappearing now because of the Internet and Youtube and everybody grows up on Camera. They're being filmed by their parents. And then once they're old enough to have a phone. They're filming themselves. I wonder if that's even a thing now does every is everybody just like no. I'm going to be a Big Star. So get out of my way even remember you talking about it many years ago one reality. Tv Hit and you suddenly with the Popular entertainment can suddenly go into your house. Passed you to your great aunt. Smoking on the porch and suddenly real humans were revealed in a way that when we were growing up the thing we were battling was like. Oh no no no. That's like that's unattainable but it's also beneath our value systems. Yeah Yeah you don't WanNa go to show Biz was synonymous with working at a strip club. I think hometown yeah and also I mean. I think there's a thing too. It's like it's full of gays and Jews when I flip from a small town like. Aren't there a bunch of queers. I was an altar male. Yes there are. Let them my my my priest at my church when I The Catholic church where I was an altar boy and I read the re the gospel readings so I was like the favored son of Archer. Yeah Yeah And I it came out that it was going to go to theater school and after mass the next Sunday took me aside and said you know I just WanNa make sure you're aware there's a lot of like casual sex and drugs in the world of of with the arts and my eyes lit up and I was like fantastic suspected as much. Yeah Yeah thank you for confirming Tony. Thanks for everything support for inbound with Nick and Magon is brought to you by Man. Scape the best man's below the belt grooming. Oh Man's caped.

Yes although I had been on Conan already had you. I couldn't remember did. And what year was that because I may have been gone. It was early early on. It was toward the beginning as before Matt. Nix Mr Ben Ninety eight or nine then I would have been there. I'm sorry hold on one second telling me that you don't remember the order that you met already on the House and I I I actually just the other day the Casino one thing. That's really a wonderful thing. Is that our entire archives. Were made available to us to make available to other people which was which is something. Yeah I mean because it is Kinda like you know one of the best things truly about my work. Life is that I was on a show that was meaningful to young comedy people in the same way that when I was young comedy person there were meaningful chose to me so that's really something that I mean. It's not like not like you know we're saving lives. But it certainly within the realm of my chosen profession it is kind of paying forward in some ways you know just because it is you learn how to be funny by watching other people be funny in how you consider to be the. Kinda Funny WanNa be and maybe you're not saving lives but you are delivering medicine. That's true we they've been letting out these clips. They've been releasing these clips of remotes that we did in one thousand nine hundred ninety four and stuff and and there was one that I wrote on what's called the beauty bus. Which was a bust in the Hamptons? That was basically a SPA. So you get in Manhattan and by the time you get to the Hamptons. You've had a manicure pedicure in your hair set and washed or whatever the hell you do and I. I just tweeted deeply familiar with a manicure dime. I'm I'm self because I'm barefoot right now and I just last night I have a habit of murdering my toenails far too deeply like that. Like I'm afraid that somehow they're gonNA outshine me so I always need to keep them stunted tiny pragmatic Yeah yeah there's less time between trimmings but No I drew tweeted this remote with with just the Gretchen. And it was true no recollection. I had absolutely no recollection of any of that. Obviously spent an entire like Saturday on this bus. Because I did end up in the HAMPTONS. Because I said no recollection and I didn't watch it and then an hour later had time to watch it still no recollection. Wa. Yeah it's just. It's literally thousands of hours of television. I can understand how you went. Remember every guest. But I wasn't naked. Self I remember that sugar something like it. You couldn't ear that. Did you just like apples? And the hand is vaguely. Yeah now it's I That's been a weird foible of my life for many years is have. I actually met this person or are they just famous. Were done and I met. I was at a concert and Alan. Thicke was there and I was talking to Alan. Thicke as if will Alan Thicke is obviously had to have been on the show and then he at you know we're talking for ten minutes very familiarly and he's like so argue guys ever going to get me on. The show was like we were Palo to a certain age. Though whether you're on a nightly talk show or not you start to think that you know everybody think he went to high school with every person and it's A. It's a safe assumption. The other night Chris Parnell was on will and grace and I was there and We stopped to say hello and he specifically had that so strongly because his voice and his face. His whole thing is so ubiquitous. Yeah like it's a voice overs on commercial rates my dreams. Yeah Yeah can't remember if he'd met you and you can remember if you've met him so that's sort of interesting usually one or the other while. I'm pretty sure I know that we have had friendly talking and probably backstage at Saturday night live. Yeah Cell Andy You Andrea if I may ask you a now also have a podcast question. The three questions yeah. I had been team Richter as I like to call him. You're the agents. The managers two lawyers be Fluffer hung they said my manager. Especially you should do podcast. You should do podcasts. And I felt nick and I were talking earlier about our mid Western `ISMS and I have a fear of feeling dilettantish. You're coming across as dilettantish and I thought that. I don't really listen to podcasts or not really my thing like I don't know you know and I also too. I have the very entitled Spoiled Old Person Thing of. I've been on television for a long time so for me. You know the notion of when I when Youtube started becoming something. People were doing things for you too. It's like oh well enjoy that. It's like having a yard sale. Rose as opposed to opening a Nordstrom's and so I was always like well. There's no money in it. Why when I when I toil in this thing for no money and then of course as time goes on like a there is a little bit of money in it and then B. I don't care anymore I just WanNa do things that are fun you know. I mean don't you get to a point and it's like enough you know. Like how much do you need that kind of thing? And and so it is like yeah no I just it is the keeping busy and doing things. And what the main part of it was. When I finally over many months ago decided guess I will do a podcast. I don't interface a lot on the CONAN show with like future plans. I don't like I don't go to meetings because I don't like meanings I hate meetings so I don't ever hear any of the things until they're right upon me which is also a function of my laziness like saying like. I like it to be spontaneous away like no home. Were just tell me about it on the day. Yeah Yeah but when I decided yeah I'll do a podcast like two days later trumpets. Conan's doing a podcast. Everything's so but I decided I mean did it to his company because it's just make sense to kind of do it for team Coco. I know everybody there and I love everybody there and and I just had the idea to you. Know I've been going through a lot of stuff in my life and I just wanted to have meaningful conversations about life and kind of this stuff. I always have been interested the thing about my job. It's most interesting to me. Is the commercial break conversations that I have with people and they're very much about like. Tell me about your kids about human things. Like I don't because I I sat there again for thousands of hours in her promotion of things. It's all you know. It's it's entertainment but also primarily is promotion. What we do you know the at least the interview part and so I just. I like to talk to people and get a sense of who they really are. And and so. That's I came up with the concept of three questions being. Where do you come from where you're going? And what have you learned and just it gives people. It's like those I would get notes at the beginning like we don't feel like you're really specifically addressing the questions and somebody actually give the known of like maybe we could split the show up into twenty minute blocks and you could have the three questions and. I just think that's the dumbest thing not like. And it's like no. We are answering the question. They're just not explicit. Now it's time to answer this. Plus who's grading it like. I don't know it's just you know people have to give notes job you can't you can't continue in show business facilitating projects if you go. I trust the people making the project. I think it's GonNa be Great. Yeah you would. They would go like after a while. You just say okay to all these people's creative choices. Why do we need? You gotTa make up like I have a problem now so but it also it gives. It gives the person coming in the notion of what they're in for. What kind of conversation are going to be in for you know and I and it's the way it's all therapy to I've been I've been in therapy for a million years and it's it's a particular language that I'm very conversant in. I enjoy other people who are too and I don't mean that it's like because it's it's it's it's not like it's a gimmick or it's not like it's I don't know some sort of cultish mannered thing it's just. Can you talk about your feelings in an open accessible way and people that can do that are the most interesting people to me and people can't do that are by in opposition? Not that interesting to me. If you can't deal with your feeling if you can't talk about your feelings in a way that where it's like a unashamedly because we all got them you know and and then be Frankly I I you know. It's it's not a good converse it's not necessarily an interest conversation. Yeah the those are the conversations that really inspire Mir when people start talking about real things is not just about issues. Oh yeah people think Duke has like although I'm less so now I took a break from politics in the last few months just because I'd had enough and I had to win the other things going on but I'm a political person. Might nothing's been happening in politics. So it's a great time out going great honestly. I mean nothing's really happening but how much what am I going to do about it and is happening because you know so I just like I said just Kinda took a break and didn't like take on every single news story that came on because I do there especially comes down elections and I could before the first primary tune back in two days before the first prior John know who I'm voting for anyway so it's like I don't have to pay attention to the prime up until then yeah. This is all scary nonsense. I mean nonsense that it's absurd and doesn't make any sense but there's not a lot I can do about it so but I people want. I want to talk about politics at a party in. It's like no because it's kind of you know like talking about you know it's better for your leg not to be broken you know. We don't need to go on and on about do one of the great twitter account all thank you very much and I mean but you do everything you do comedy and you also get clinical. But I- early I started on social media late and I remember early on. I posted something. And some of these said something mean and I d m jobs like no no. No you're like Oh God fiction no I mean. I can now anticipate if I talk about. You know something that happened at lunch just the fact that I mentioned lunch. I'll get like maybe ought to lay off the food fatso coming because I mentioned I mentioned nourishment. Tanno the partaking of of nourishment you get. I've got I've gotten used to it. I knew have very thick skin about it and I Much less Although it is weird Castillo they're still like some fucking stranger will say one little thing and it'll just like be a crochet hook in my nostril pulling me and I'm like Oh you motherfucker and sometimes I will will address them publicly and then I get people like don't pick on people below you then I'm like. Hey I'm fucking human. Yeah I get pissed like you know the reason that I do twitter's because because I'm a human being and I had things to say and I wanNA share them and like and I do and I think you know I'll think of something funny in the car and I wanNA tell somebody so. This is a great way to just like silly jokes that I if I was somebody who was sitting next to me. I would tell him but I share it and I always like and also you know you Sicily below you. There's no below or above nine. Data's trying to me ness in the sense of like somebody with thirty followers. Says something stupid to me? And I bring that dragged him into the sunlight and then a bunch of people bully them that are supporters making air quotes of mine. So yeah you do have to be aware of the notion of of promoting bullying. But then there's other you know then there's other times where like I. I did a series of tweets once and I was in. I was in a had suffered from depression my entire life. I've been medicated for years and years and years and there was somebody. Somebody re tweeted into my timeline in an like an to contradict this person just somebody tweeted. A depression is a choice and I and just something about it. It was in the morning something about it that day..

"That never get shorter that you can still walk away from and go to sleep at night because that and that was the hardest thing for me because I felt like I have to work until everything's checked off this list. You never going to happen so once I kind of accepted like no no no. That's what this will look like and it will all get done or some of it won't and it will be okay. I had to really we learned that. And it's something I have to keep teaching myself every year like is that have to go. I've I've been through this before. This feels insurmountable but had been through this before. Somehow is that a lesson Getting to the because we're getting towards in your In the what if you learn. Is that something that you expand into the rest of your life that kind of absolutely. Yeah I I I definitely sort of more high strung than I would like to be and And I I guess I feel like I should have. We've had the ambition to go with it. If I was going to be this anxious but I just didn't. Yeah so you know now. I think I'm better at at being able to take a step back in a moment of stress go will now hang on like how much how much energy yes. I need to put energy into solving the problem. But like how much energy and my burning just being really stressed stressed out about this thing that feel so important that I've had so many of these moments that I now can't even remember most of them. Yeah like it so it can't be. Ah You know. I have to fast forward to the moment when this is not even going to be if I remember you and make some sort of connection with that and then I can kind of let it go and and fix it without all of that surplus energy that goes into freaking out about something and so you are in yourself as an anxious person. I think I'm fairly I I don't want to be. I mean nobody wants to say but I think I have. Yeah I mean I definitely have zero point where you just like. I don't want to do any like be like this anymore. and Oh you know no. Yeah I mean I I mean I would not like to. I would not like to be like this anymore but I mean I think I'm getting better as I get. Older is as a coping just looking at previous examples of freak out and how it worked out fine. Yeah Yeah I mean. That's the boring answer. It's the answer that you know adults tell you when you're a teenager that is just meaningless. Doesn't it just goes in one or the other like it doesn't mean anything to be selling. Well when you're a little older you accumulate this experience and the experience will teach like shut Adult but that is there's a certain amount of stuff that's like you no. I don't like now if I'm in a situation where because I it's not going to go into this now but like I have a history of like panic attacks and stuff when I was in early years of college now now when I start to feel that feeling this like the tired old person in me. It's like I don't have the energy panic attack move can we. I'm going to skip skipped to the other side of this thing. That's a real thing. It's a grits pro take it. It's perhaps absolutely no. I have always thought like there's so many things in life. Is that where you're just like it's almost like brainwashing yourself or you you have you feel this sort of anxious urge towards something in your. You're just like no. I'm not going to do that. And you can ask yourself or I have asked myself we Emma I am I not just kind of playing a trick myself not just like going. Yeah well I'm just GonNa not I'm just gonNA shove it in a box and think and not think about it. which is you know? You're not supposed to just shut things about it but it's like hey it it works. Yeah Hey might play a trickle myself. Who Ans- the Cortisol level stays down in the life gets lengthened absolutely Lulu and the other thing for me I think just to close off that That conversation I guess is that the older I get the more comfort I take and being being just so normal in the way that I am anxious or so normal in the way that I agree so normal in the way that I get excited at like the you know. I think when you're younger you want to feel feel special in in certain ways and sometimes that sort of like consumes itself and it has the adverse effect where you're like. Oh I'm broken in this very unique way away and now I honestly and it's not because I wish ill on anyone else but nothing truly really gives me more comfort then when someone else's like you know don't like everyone goes through this. You know we all feel that way are you know. You're oh you're going through this thing with your parents getting older lake. Guess what you're so not alone in that you know and and that feels to just feeling like not a freak. Yeah gives me so much. Hello okay well so people have been getting through this stuff for hundreds of years. Now I will get through this. Well seems as good a place. And that's one of the ones that I was reading this podcast but I was like people have been getting through podcasts for yes tens of years ten years I will survive Andy Richter you will and I'm still alive to tell you you did swimmingly. Thank thank Yous a really fun conversation excited. Yeah Well I. I'm glad you could do it. I mean you know you had me on yours. I have you on mine literally. Oh It's you know how it works.

kind of coming in top right corner I didn't know that impeachment had started with trump I had gotten an alert explaining Gwyneth paltrow's dainty walk I guess I wasn't aware it was like the reason behind its paltrow's surprising dainty wall well she's holding jade egg in there you can't you can't Strut you know I mean you don't she could have had to go to the bathroom and you don't know I never

right lower Gwyneth at the end of this podcast I will have made my choice well it is great to see you know our paths have crossed and I have always Tom loved you because I want to say love you might seem creepy but I didn't take it as like love you is good because I feel like I met you I remember the first time I met you Matt Walsh's House like a super bowl game yes and I feel like when I started

need a Zillion Yankel we do and there are people that you just it's like Oh You I know you your your mind yet we're in the same boat here yeah and that was yeah from the beginning I agree cell so I think we can agree that Matt Walsh is the worst God what a fucking slob would've if I did choose between within Walsh I'd be easy honestly the fact that he is now say Emmy nominated is the biggest lights the biggest like discount qualifier of the entire organization agree Oh my God finding so many sternly worded letters emmy nominated yeah please that's all the letter says legally in all cash my name Andrea Savage Academy member are you not I don't know I don't even come one he's fucking sign up for it really absolutely and You Geek your show runner for Christ's sake you should probably be in the television academy nobody gives you a handbook like these are the things you're supposed to do you do you have an assistant today say get me into the academy licensing exactly no under the academy do you do it with Joe Kademi Jennifer no seriously it's it's easy you're you're you're you're guild member you're on TV it's that's all it takes okay my letters are going to pack it extra punch well this woman stop member yeah yeah okay that's good to know well this wasn't for nothing that's true now probably the reason that you're not an academy members because you didn't expect to get into show Biz that's what understand I did not necessarily expect to get into Showbiz I come come from a very non showbiz family even though you're from out here right grandma raised in L. A. Whereabouts in la the valley specifically the address. Oh no no I'm kidding I don't live there anymore I'm thrilled to give it at anymore well it's probably they're whoever lives there now is probably so sick of the tours that go by okay to imagine throngs of people on Orville Avenue we've been hills there you go check it out people will avenue hills yeah I yeah I was born in l. a. my parents got forced to and I live we kind of but then by by the age of four I was in Woodland Hills and are you are you folks La people too or did they come from elsewhere now my both my mom and dad grew up in La. which is you're a mm-hmm legitimate gold card daughter is third generation LSU's yeah that's crazy now my mom grew up in the valley my dad grew up on the west side did you know and so he was slumming he was swimming with valley off yeah yeah and yeah my mom would have been yes hi Oh wow yeah did you go to public or private school I went to private school which one I went to what is now Harvard Westlake Oh class smarties go I was GONNA say was a smart I still consider myself smart I am a academic person at Heart Award and I'm very yeah very good student I like studying a likes doing well in school I went to Cornell I was pre law so I feel like I I always talk about I have these like battles that literally I think is the number one thing that I battle with now is I call it the Cornell and Carney just like battle in my head and have always adjudged in my own head what I do for a living and then the carney side of mine if I go to Cornell for awhile starts I doubt doubt and it's hard balancing those instincts that both very strong instincts in my own head all I mean ah when you say that like what is what embarrasses Cornell about Carney everything everything's irresponsible it's way though but you're making a good living in your now I mean now can justify it a little bit more and by the way this isn't there's no realism to it it's just yeah I had I think also no one in my family is in the entertainment business what just everyone's world everyone's doctors was all very logical career folks professional people my dad just retired but it was an orthodontist saw my mom was a dental hygienist but my Dad was commercial real estate my uncles were lawyers my other snuggles doctors like everyone was very practical siblings I have four brothers and are they opt trysts a dentist Dr Computer Engineer and one's in the wine industry yes so everybody is very they don't have senses of humor but it was not a house of creativity that like humor wasn't like people were creating stuff is really sort of out on my own in that way not judge but I it just seemed very just blame and growing up in la the idea of being in the entertainment industry seems very lame very unintelligent just now collect growing up near a coal mine and be like I don't WanNa work in that coal mine yeah I don't and it's funny I mean it's ridiculous now to think about it but then I definitely had a judgment I would never even have admitted that I wanted to be in the entertainment industry and it took me so long to actually accept that this is what I was doing even the first decade of what I was doing I was constantly like well probably be going Max law school any moment now like it was always yeah yes were you the funny one in the house I was finding I think yeah funny one in the House and encouraged to be so that's I mean that's that's the thing that little girls aren't encouraged to be funny boys are you like the class clown is a boy and a class clown girl is g young lady dare you yeah I think changing a little bit absolutely but definitely back in the forties when I was growing up me too it was yeah it was not in by the wasn't like my friends were that funny but I was funny but I wasn't like other comedians were like I was doing things at parties I was was funny I was doing video videos and tape recording with my friends but it wasn't until I got into I came into the came into comedy in the lamest not cool way musical theater Oh yeah like it wasn't like my parents listen to Richard Pryor and Mike I stayed up late watching now it was like I loved Oklahoma their faces they'd make it was it's so now were you were your parents musical theater people or is it something you stumbled how like I don't know how I stumbled into any of this because it was not introduce you don't remember like when's the I remember the first time we were like musical theater her like wow I remember go my parents would take me to go see stuff at the pantages sure and I would see musical theory and be like I want to do that and guy can do that and once I started doing some musical theater and was funny in high school in Yeah is and I was like Oh and then and I hate this I found that when I started to be like fourteen fifteen started making more guy friends who were really funny that's when I realized oh I'm funny yeah and I hate that that's a woman like when I realized it because just my other friends girls just weren't that funny at that time and it was around Matt Age that I was like oh I can be sarcastic and I can keep up with you and you can banter that's my language my first boyfriend's were like that that's when I started kind of being like yeah I'm funny and but you there's no just like no I'm going to cornell I can be a funny lawyer yeah or not funny or whatever I also didn't know that Improv existed I didn't really know that you could be a stand up there was no Improv my high school there was no comedy shouldn't be she scraped bet you now now you have kids you know that they're taking Improv my daughter would add improv in grade school yeah I mean it's she's in middle school now and I don't think that they do it anymore but it was you know which is improve started as veal Poland invented these games for kids for like kids I think that probably were autistic you know a bit there some awful terrible phrase for what.

"Hi there this is Andy Richter and you are listening to the three questions my guest today Loren Bouchard the creator of Bob's early wins what do they call it squiggle vision squiggle vision yeah yeah it moved it was shaky Zeros Animated Shaky Cam we were we had to move something because we didn't know how to make people walk or we didn't we weren't interested in like a lot of action you know it was basically going to be talking heads had to move so there was this idea you know just keep the keep everything squiggling right right and and it worked you know more or less we did Put It on the big screen it was like a comedy central arrange to have shorts in front of movies for a hot second and we went to the premier like a general cinemas in Framingham Ma ask and those of us that sat in the front row were actually nauseous Oh really Esquivel Vision on the big screen much I could see that yeah well it's I think the thing with the shaky camera on on TV you know like on your CS is or whatever would be nauseating an in a big screen I think so this is this is a relatively new endeavor this podcast but the the the notion behind it I don't know did I explain it to you at all three questions he questions they are where do you come from where are you going now what have you learned down so nervous all them why they came in stomach ache why no no no no we'll see here but here's the thing you create some of the most tender television all in the world in history I mean you were you were one of the first people I wanted to have on here number one because you're one of my favorite people to talk to and because I've never did you talk places and for two to have like deb created this show that means so much to so many people I feel like you should be out there blabbing ha well you'll see you'll see why in a second all right yeah you're a real salesman yeah so luck buddy yeah it's look you've got to have when you start a podcast burnoff I think you're right you don't even this one what is doesn't even have to try you'll learn from this and then you'll apply Kelly Ripa of all people if I can aim here told told me and it's probably it's probably a common saying but her her mother told her kids are like pancakes always ruined the first one wow yeah it's not far from true no hey I mean you know and yeah podcasts even more hard cash so the first one where do you come from where I know you're a New Yorker Oh you're not Austin Boston New York that's where that's where I met you is in New York right yeah born in New York then mostly raised in the Boston area and actually started my professional career in the Boston area and then moved to New York had dinner with you right and had dinner with me where he met and what about your folks what did they do they were type of people where they I'm very much I the to answer the question where I come from I really am my parents kid it's interesting now is I get to be you know for it to look back and see how much my parents kid my mom From New York Jewish Brooklyn In her parents were immigrants she was a writer always knew she wanted to do that. I think she was very driven you know got education kind of got out of Brooklyn but then really down when she met my dad and you know her folks were not happy. He's from National Hampshire and french-canadian you know I'm not a Jew his people were Catholic and he was a real artist like Bohemian who was like data just before his whole life and he was just going to be an artist a painter and he came from big family yeah he and his brothers were you know real fuck ups and his and his family was a mess or not fuck ups but they were they were blue collar artists a part of the American story that doesn't get told that underrepresented yeah yeah because I know I I mean coming from Chicago I knew a lot of people like that a lot of people that just kind of like when you when you're blue car color artists somewhere you just doing it because you've got it do you know like if you're a sculptor you're you're also doing bodywork kind of thing you have no choice who are truly doing this because you have no choice and you don't really have prospects yes that's the other thing is not necessarily ever GonNa you know that going in it's an odd corn of it I think it's beautiful and I admired and I think it's informed me a lot one question because for me Oh I don't know that if I had stayed in Chicago like that I hadn't for whatever reason been in possession of something that got me the two dead allowed me to do this professionally for a long time for a blessedly longtime and and have a successful career I don't know that if that hadn't happened for me that I'd be still one of those people at age fifty two doing Improv in Chicago and I wondered the same thing with you if you this sort of working in show bizz in creating television shows hadn't worked out for you do you think you'd still be as much of an artist as you are today it's a great question I don't know the answer I joke a lot about how always ready to go back to bartending my shorthand for just kind of hey I can fall back on that album yeah fucking shit yeah yeah exactly and I it's possible yeah for me in Boston they might have been yeah the restaurant business maybe would have expanded to fill and I would've yeah maybe managed to place for a few it will also to cooking and food is a creative endeavor anyway it involves the same sort of like spacial relations and problem solving and linear kind of thinking and I you know like for me I mean one of my big things has always been like what I want to say and I don't I don't fucking know no idea what I want to say and I get as much and the notion that like if I was given the opportunity do whatever I wanted here you go show business do whatever you want whatever that would be I get as much satisfaction for making dinner right I mean like looking just the other day I had a whole afternoon I had a bunch of nervous energy for one reason or another and I just like all right I'm GonNa make a big fucking elaborate meal just that I agree and I I have two thoughts for that one is going back to my dad for a second I think about him a lot because he came from the intense the Bohemian Artists who were just finding it and just doing it it was almost that they had to be like wow I don't care if I ever if I ever have an audience I don't sure yeah I I have to do this in dialogue with myself and my demons and my hopes for the culture but it's not necessarily with an audience and in a way a the one thing and he and I talked about this a lot when i sort of stumbled backwards and flop down into show business and found that I loved it and realized I wanted to do this for the rest of my life I was intensely interested in what the audience wanted this goes to cooking it's like it's satisfying because in a way it's you it's the work and the third very important piece which is boom you put it in front of somebody s and you get back something really important you're either making them happier may be you know or they're freaking out for whatever reason yup you had you needed that third word and that's sometimes I differentiate is this kind of like pure thing that you do for yourself I took this picture of my shoes and I worked with Photoshop and I never showed any real is the way or I have volumes of poetry that will never show anyone that kind of yeah exactly and then for me I suspect for you and for people who Cook Food and bartenders there's also the great pleasure of putting it in front yes somebody else it is actually the the last when you need it and I think that's definitely true and there are there's degrees to putting in front of somebody in needing too much like you know like like meeting the person and not just say oh this is delicious soup but but like the shit their pants and go oh my God you know and there is just been around like that you know there's that level then there's also the level that I sometimes deal with is that I feel like I wish I had more of that notion of just doing it for myself off because I there's sometimes I feel like I don't know what what there is to do for myself you know like what I be what you know what I be telling stories soon if I won the lottery would I ever do anything other again than cook elaborate meals took all afternoon you know so that's not about you that's about me but I like it because I this again this is the to going back to where do you come from because I come from these artists my mother's writer my dad is visual artists they're both more capital artists and I am yeah but in a way I know that the writing and the visual arts sort of intersect with rated animation absolutely I mean you can draw the line see I was destined in a way or created in a lab to do this work and yet when I was growing up I knew what the creative and ever looked like my mother would go up to her little office to write a my dad would go to his studio to paint but I didn't know about this thing with the audience and so I I guess to me the answer is if you won the lottery I suspect this is true of you too but at least for me I would still do something that I wanted to out into the wall and I really wanted to land with somebody it doesn't have to be a big audience I I really liked doing Bob's for a big audience but I also they liked making shows on cable for small audience shore it really doesn't have to be big it just has to be deep yeah yeah it has to be that audience that gets some deeply sure yeah deep or or what it's like pleasure plus right it's like there's make somebody happy like I want to make people happy right maybe that's the third question in this experimental it doesn't matter if they don't have to go in order but I guess it's interesting because it's like you don't want it to be junk-food right can you make people happy sure but it's bad for limited nutritional value yes and so there is like there's the deep satisfaction of a piece of work that's been loved a carefully crafted like a meal and serve to somebody who likes it and gets nourishment from it nonsense passing right exactly and then we would do that I assume that's the thing we're driven to do and maybe the medium isn't as important that's I guess that's right yeah I guess that's right now when coming from that did you for in that environment I mean because that is very interesting to me that you you had that paradigm of what creative people going into creative spaces looked yeah did you sort of just then follow in that kind of naturally did that become like a natural flow for you and and what form did it take I yes I think I did I again none none of this clear at the time wasn't a narrative that we talked about you know as I was when I was a kid I don't remember them saying like there's a path in front of you it's the create the past of the creative never ever spoken about at least not that I remember but I do have this very clear memory of going into the garage and saying yeah I got this four track and I really wanted to have a space in the garage where it was my studio and it and now I have kids and I I see them doing that like can this be my desk yeah yeah okay that's your desk so I think there's like some of it is you're modeling this idea that you go replace whether it's even just the end of the kitchen table that's like your little kind of space where you create your grownup kids do that really can't just go and play or whatever but I think if I think when I was a kid where do I come from I do think I'm seeing my parents go into their little area and their job yet the way I understood it as a kid but I now see kind of they're calling their thing they could not do and I do it probably did have an effect on me yeah I think he gives you permission to keep that part of you that you do naturally as a kid that some people like leave behind as an adult data vault is you know it's fairly simple I can kind of now looking back tell it in you know more or less two sentences which is my mother died oh and my dad wasn't freaked out about the fact that.

"andy richter" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter

"I've always been interested in learning that doesn't mean necessarily good at school right because I did not like homework either. I didn't like having to prove to the teacher that I heard what they said. Yeah but tension thing issues a little bit yeah you know especially then I was. I was the only child you know so. It was my grandma like I said we had two cats and I was. I was a little Weirdo at school especially. When I was younger when I was younger I was a bully even a really oh yeah because I was. I had a lot of displaced displaced anger. Yeah Yeah didn't know where to put it. So and kids treated me like I was weird already so I just kind of fell into it until I went too far in someone's a a dad called the cops on me and then I was like all right. I am literally done with this because because you know I think about I think about the people I bullied a lot to as as adult. I go like Oh man I was so I was a mean kid but I was confused and afraid and then at some point I went and you know this doesn't do anything. I'm just hurting. Someone's not seen like you too. I mean you know it just doesn't seem in character and of course you say displaced anger that ah that's the explanation right there. I would assume I WANNA feel. A powerful new claims yeah yeah I WANNA feel powerful and in control of way so having having an effect on another child was like made me feel like I was important. Ya where I was somebody which I think is the heart of all bullying. Somebody just wants to feel feel like they matter in some kind of way and I guess I want. The cops were called on me. I was like this is not. This is not the way uh-huh even as a even as a third grader. I'm like there's gotta be a better way. thank. God you had the realization at that age. Yes exactly just because I wasn't on bullied. If that's the irony I was never. I wasn't that physical kids yeah because I was not. I was a slight child. Yes wasn't intimidating. The seems like your brain is your muscle. Yes I was psychologically terrorize to yeah other kids with my existential dilemmas in in riddles that I would throw with them and then we moved. Thank the Lord Reinvent Myself. That's great when I when my mom remarried in between second and third grade her my stepfather adopted me and my brother so that because my mom wanted to have more kids she wanted all the kids to have the same last name and she also wanted the financial stability that my stepfather now call a. my stepfather although he was my legal guardian but how old were you when I was well it was I was eight. Okay you know yeah because it was between between between second third grade okay yeah yeah yeah and so. I was Andy Richter and then when I got adopted in between second and third grade going to new school I became Andy Swanson because that was my stepfather's last name and in such a transparent transparent in retrospect such a transparent attempt at like attempting some sort of control. I decided Andy Swanson didn't sound decorate and my full name Ms Paul Andrew Richter and my mother is always called me by my middle name. Her logic was named after my uncle Paul but I don't really like my uncle Paul so she called me. Andy rate so I've been. Andy betted something. I dislike and your name. I know I know so I've been Andy my whole life and it was very handy when I had problems with bill collectors because anytime anybody called asking for Paul I wasn't there he wasn't there. It was his roommate Glen. I just tomato roommate. Glen and I even got relationships with some of the bill collectors as Glenn. I gave him the message. I'm sorry trying to help you out but anyway I I decided Andy. Swanson didn't sound good so I became Paul Swanson then so for third and fourth grade I was Paul. Swanson Been Andy Richter and then like grandfather died. My grandmother couldn't maintain this big house the big family house that my great grandfather had built yes so my mom and my Stepdad move us all back in there by that time I had a a younger brother and sister who are twins moves back in. I go back to the same school for Fifth Grade and I'm a this is the new kid Paul Swanson and it's it's all these kids are like you're not Paul. You're Andy Fuck it all right andy. So when I became an I mean I was always andy at home but I mean and I'm fine with it but it was just an opportunity for -tunities timmy it just was like it was so much like there was so much change being thrown at me and I'm GonNa. Change my first name I mean I think those is a very jarring ages meal. It's it's very it's you know those kinds of changes on a little kid. Are I think are very formative. You know I think it's I think definitely you know and I think like like just you know the thing that you you know when you said that's my mom come to walk and that that's that's gotta got to be a heavy thing that has you know will now. It's no but I mean it's got. It's got to have it had an effect of some kind of dissociation with yes this primary relationship and then also this kind of idea of I guess I WANNA say like temporarily or yeah something where it's just kind of like we're always moving. You know we're always I'm always with somebody else or something like that. I mean you know when my mom and I moved to Vegas. You know like I said it was my myself my grandmother for a really long time then I had a stepfather Victor improbably seventh or eighth grade in my brain getting fuzzy but he came into the picture and then my little sisters were born when I was heading into high school. I was happy change for you. You got along with them okay. We never really got along now. We kind of like we tolerated each other to this day yeah so it's kind of like my little sisters are thirteen years younger than my brother. Minor nine nine wins nine years younger. Yes so that's like we're very different places in our lives. You know like I was going to college yet when they were starting to make full sentences and you have a full conversation. Oh you're a human being now changing diapers and now you're like here's what I think and I'm like. Oh Wow yeah but I was in the east coast by that point so it's those transitions are always kind of tricky. I guess you could say especially when we my grandmother moved out for a little bit and then Nj move back in so it was like the me. My grandmother got a bunk bed which was super cool. Really Popular Child Hope. You made her sleep. Keep on the topic. Get up there. No she claimed she was like mine. NERD futons the bottom of the futons kind of like it turned into a couch where we could watch TV. Nice we had TV in every room and cable because we didn't want to talk to each other and luckily I got to watch all these movies yeah I guess I was talking about the whole bullying thing I transitioned out of that and then became a kid that became bullied when I moved to the other neighborhood then I was like the weird slight nerdy awkward kid with the chip to that but then also by that time I was really into comedy yeah so I didn't think think that any bully was fly. When kids made fun of me I was like that's not really that like I was like. I was like a Youtube commenter kind of lame. That's not that's not really that her formative eh funny I mean did you use your your your humor as a as a defense intellect so many people deflect bullying absolutely absolutely yeah yes yes and it was like I could make people laugh. Yeah which means that was the way then had the power instead of terrorizing children. I could entertain them. You know make them laugh and that was positive so sort of like and then if I make them laugh then maybe I'll be well like maybe when somebody wants to beat me up somebody else will be like up. Believe him alone right right Larry. You know how that always works sure sure absolutely now because of all that constant chain. Yes I mean you. You've chosen a career. That is not exactly stable now. Do you think I mean. Do you think that that was because it's what you've grown used. I used to because you know I think I think that that kind of constant change. When you're young you can either you can go one way or the other with it and you obviously kind of. Maybe got used to it. You you know yeah I mean. That's a really it's a student observation. I think that's what I'm here for. Welcome back to the studio observations. Just GonNa keep naming in his pocket right. Yeah I mean and that's something I'm actually as an adult. You know especially as a person who is a has a career in trying to maintain it. that question you're talking about is at the heart of where everything. I need to change as far as I'm concerned really because I've been living in sort out of a I don't want to say a manic kind of way but it's always like this chaos in which I'm juggling things and I'm always trying to catch up to it and so the if you will the the stress of the survival that I had in middle school is still embedded. How in how I do things how how you work. It's how I work yeah so it's sort of like Mike. I'm trying to let those things because they don't serve me yeah anymore and they and they're in the way more than anything else where it's just sort of like. Do I need to it. Just fully hate myself for three months to get a new ten minutes. Is that really that useful so those things are like still will. I guess you could say they're Kinda. I'm still kind of morphing that more or trying to sculpt them. How much did becoming a dad effect like impact that I think a lot yeah. I I think a lot because the moment my son was born. Just the thought of it's just not all about me anymore. it was my sister-in-law said now you know who the real baby is. That's a great way of looking at where it's yeah. It's definitely like okay well. I'm officially a grownup yeah so it's like Jake. It's now my job to address a lot of things that you know. I'm still stuck on so that way. I don't just pass it to him. You know like I can hopefully I don't give him all my bad habits. You know in all my all the ideas especially about how I feel about myself that he you know he's he's already pretty confident as far as I could and I'm just like I just gotTa maintain that yeah because I was kind of an inside kid you know how hot it was in Vegas just kind of socially awkward I was more interested in TV and stuff like that and then that was also where I was like refilling the creative well to be able to take material title to school entertain everyone that could have believed in me with yeah yeah so it's Kinda like now I'm like Oh. There's still this stress of being judged or or being what's the word. I'm looking forward kicked out which show Biz does rejection. Yes show Biz makes you feel like there's one hundred hundred people behind you and if you don't do what we say we will just pick. Somebody else. Looks exactly like you and we'll do what we ask so ah that's stressful yeah. That's one of the craziest thing help you create one of the craziest things about show business and I mean because there's a lot I mean there's a tremendously industry fucked up psychology loest people in show business and one thing that I have always noticed is that so many people in show business are are so much more affected by susceptible to being hurt by ruled by rejection they are it's defines like their inability to have a rejection defined so many people so many talented professionals that I know and they go into the fucking doc in rejection business go into the business. That's just rejection after rejection after rejection and not only that the thing that's always struck me like the one that blows my mind. It is awards shows. You got a room full of rejection junkies who now who have now made it to be like joke. He likes to the top of the fucking mountain. They're all wildly successful beyond what they're probably. Their wildest dreams were yes. They still have have to get to a point where out of ten people nine of them feel like shit. nine of them get to be rejected again like it's like a tooth a tooth that they get to push on again. Yeah yeah so weird and so crazy that we just can't it's. It's probably a good thing because if people started if people in show business I started really loving themselves. Everything would suck well. You know I kind of I kind of think that a lot of us are drawn to this because of dealing with rejection or or wanting that validation you know that something happened to us some sort of way where we need validation and can't deal with rejection and then we get into a business that is built around all that stuff so it seems to me that the people who usually do the best are the people who realize these things cannot be is this now this is now untenable to be a rejection junkie and then it'd be in this business so it's almost like we choose a profession that feeds off also those bad feelings kind of it kind of like a monster that feeds.

"I did a movie called semi pro. I did a basketball movie Eddie where I played the manager of the team and we shot basketball for over three weeks in which I have to be courtside because I'm at the scores table. I'm actually like the score and was me Andy Daily and an and will Arnett. You're probably in every shot because your scores save a very very many of them and there were days where you'd have to come to work because like like a chef needs everything chopped. You gotta be ready to go in and case they decide. We're going to turn the camera over this way and we're going to see you so there were days where where I'd go in and I'm may be there for hours and it'd be like you know what we're not. GonNa see so and you've got to you've gotta just kind of go okay. Hey that's that's in the check. That's like that's built the same way the you know like whenever there's a big sale it's like it's not really a sale. It's built into the price of all the other all the other ends in you know so I totally understand depending on your temperament too. I got really pissed off. Yeah I got. I didn't leave it but it they kept on calling me in early and it's one of the things I'm sitting around. five or six hours in strangers close like in makeup watching a fuzzy television yeah fucking banger thing and it was I eventually started giving the second dirty looks yeah and then eventually they just said your calls at eight. AM Go my calls at noon Magadan. That's I know Michael's noon. That's like no matter how much I'd love to sit around your set. Yeah like six hours. You're not doing anything. It's like. I'm not being diva. I'm not your extra a little bit of left and right but it's also looking at the schedule to when you got miles on you you start to learn. Certainly my temporal minutes not Hollywood yeah. I mean I've learned. There are things that I've said no to that. I mean not a huge things not like anybody's Dick or anything but just like this fire just like but just like Oh you you're the second it'd be on fire. Fest Khanna Choices and things that they want like for acting wise and I'm like no. I'm not going to do it that way because that was shitty and bogus and the and I would never have done that earlier on but I you know there's been enough time that I'm like. I don't want to do that I want. I don't want me doing that to be on film somewhere. Yes because you always know when they say do it. This way and it's a way that you and I'm also like I trust myself. I'm not like some just Dick gets back like I am. I always have I always have the quality of the project project regardless of what it is in mind I guess and and I don't believe me. I've looked like a fucking idiot a million times also it makes the Prajit August yes if it fits if it fits the contraption that's I'm going to do it but if they want me to do something that's like that's demeaning or humiliating gating. I'm just for the sake of just like you know or like. I don't know if I've ever told this story in public but one of my I was on arrested development a number of times and terrible show. Don't watch awful awful irony on this show is friends of mine and Oh you know Jason Bateman Jason Bateman will okay thank me and I see him next. I do not not no Liza Minelli starring concert once but no I do not know I I knew 'cause others. I I know Carl weathers I shot with Carl weathers for days and days and I'll tell you what's funny is because Mitch Hurwitz and I knew there's a writer on the show Jim Valley and they they Jim and Mitch were sort of. I don't know if they were like the main ones but they where the guys I knew most and I and will our nets very good friend of mine. I used to go and Tony hails a good friend of Mine Lego Batman Lego Batman Voices. GMC trucks which that's still fucking kills me when I hear him on GNC trucks because I'm like that in of itself is a nice life in what I mean like just being the voice of GMC trucks is all you have to do to raise your family. You've made it had a nice place to live and he's been doing that for twenty years. I'm not envious but I I was on a show called quintuplets that I wasn't thrilled to be on and I mean it was. I was thrilled to have the job thing still on the air. Yeah Yeah it was I. I shouldn't say I wasn't thrilled to be on. I was glad to have the work but it wasn't. I didn't really have a lot of creative say in it and I didn't so I wasn't like crazy about the material it was and I mean it was. There were plenty of people that loved it. It just wasn't to my taste and I go over because they were shooting very three babies. No Oh you dummy when Toplitz it's five. Oh never mind triplets. I never ever saw the show never heard of that show taxi cab ah but so I wouldn't go over and hang out with those guys because I was like now. This is the kind of show that that is in my ballpark like my sensibility and seven I go hang out with them and I got to know Mitch and the problem with those guys loving you is that they write you windass something they will make. You look like an asshole. That's hard of them. Loving you is too so I played quintuplets because they knew that I was. I was like quintuplets and they were like okay. Hey how about you come over here and play quintuplets body high wind up what's over here so I went over there to play quintuplets but in like in one of the episodes the reason I bring that up one of the episodes there was a scene where I was playing me not going to the school where Michael Sarah went and my brother which was me was the director of the school and I wanna see my brother or something something and I see Bateman and Bateman asks me to be at a choper charity thing and I'm Mike and I say like okay. I was like how much money is in it and he's like none. It's a charity thing. I'm like all right well. There's zero dinner and he's a guest all right. I'll ago and then I say you know. If you see my brother. Tell him in the cafeteria and I did the lines like that. I'm such a fucking loser that I'll show up for a hot meal area yeah because the whole point of me being me was that I was a show Biz loser that my career was in the fucking toilet and why they pick you then I I know I mean Wiley. Pick me the the guy that's constantly confused with Brad Pitt. Tom Hanks Yeah. Tom Brad Pitt thanks thanks but so and you just got to put up with it and this way when you say Carl weathers the bit with Carl weathers and I we worked with him on Thursdays.

Cuba gooding junior and I said to him like how are you with that. Because it goes there's bit attribute of it and he's like he's got to laugh. Also prints was going to say one. It's funny and to also. He's also seemed like he was doing anything else. See now I will also look honestly. It's what a whole generation of people remember. Call weather's yeah yeah yeah. This is like Oh to go to craft service. You get some get some carrots Harris. Get some celery. Take that ribohn yourself to eat. Well all yes yeah.

Gosh you're right. I watched that show so yeah. Actually we watch the new seasons right. Watch them all my Mitch hire me say in the senior saying Oh is there a meal okay. I'll show up and tell my brother in the cafeteria and they kept coming up to me the director first and then the rector. I give me notes like you've got to really hit the meal. Okay I thought I was hitting it just fine and in the and also to like when you're going to the cafeteria hit that to them that well. It's kind of like okay you know. Is it going to be a meal L. OR IS GONNA IS GONNA be a meal hit it this this I finally was like I finally because I director explained it to me and I said Oh you mean like fatty loves to eat. Is that is out angle. You're going for fatty fatty fatty so crazy about eating. That fatty can't like if there's food fatty will do anything to get there and that if he's going to wait for his brother he's going to go to where the food is because he's fatty exempt. What you're looking looking for in the director went well. I mean yeah and I said no again. I said I'm not gonna read it like it's more kind of like. I'll do anything for a hot meal meal yeah yeah. I'm sorry not GonNa like just wasn't GonNa do that because a I mean it's humiliating because fucking funny exactly you can humiliate yourself if it's fucking funny but if it's just for the sake no looking DOC gooden like okay I'll be. I'll be a failure for you but I'm not going to be like a food obsessed. Fatso yeah so and like like the onset writer came over and was like trying to explain it and I was just like yeah yeah I get the first three times yeah I mean the and but no I'm not GonNa do that and and that was just but I don't think that well well. The director himself said he goes. I've never had an actor Tommy. I know and I was like well yeah. Sorry just I mean truly I will do. I've done really really profoundly. Humiliating gross like fake nudity kind of thing she hung around said in a dance belt which if you don't know what that is. It's basically strap strap. goes up your ass.

It's it's delving into prop humor humor like my body being the prop but you know I would. I'll do that event calls for works. I mean there was a time because we used to do as a bit on the CONAN shown. Actually there's kind of like a a bit that is it is well remembered of Conan and I we're in robes after the gym and he says like Hey. There's a new steam room at NBC. It's like a prank or something and he shoves me onto the today show set where Matt Lauer's bedding down you know yeah yeah but I have pixellated out yeah yeah. No No. It's me no. It's a good bit and it's like okay. That's a good bit but after we did that did a couple of times when riders needed an ending to bits it would be like and and it had to be like none that's a that is a that's like the Alpha Omega bomb beneath the planet of the save that for the they can't just fire in that thing off all the time it loses its power exactly okay. I guess we're GONNA. Take another break right now. Because that's what we do do on the show sorry about to sell shit yeah time not shit excellent product line to make the fucking donuts old.

"Order or find Vita Cup at target Walmart and sprouts routes well listener. You've done it again. You've stumbled into greatness. Welcome to the three questions begins with Andy Richter as it turns out and Andy Richter and I am very happy to have a very dear and frankly queer queer friend on today. He's a very queer end very dear very dear and very queer. I didn't say old I really care about because that's the only thing really say an old friend. You never know in this town. I realized that's was keeping the gates yeah. That's ruining everything Scott Thomsen. It's cotton. We've known each other for twenty five hundred at least twenty five years face because the first time I went on Conan would have been and ninety four ninety four sh yeah it was the first time was when we sketch about what's McCall with broke the ankle the Tonya Harding Arjun it if you you used to come in he's coming all the time used to come in all the time and we would do these sort of like instant made for TV movies.

Kate and I don't take no I personally I was like. Why don't we let Scott play a man but they still don't let me honestly comedy wight? Male comedy isn't real bright straight when he can be clever. Yeah yes GATEWAYCC meal. I mean everyone's trying to put me on that barge with you guys but I refuse to go really people like trying to lump you in now the gay wife White Man or no longer. It's no longer cool. It's not good enough. Oh Oh I see so. It's your not part of the establishment. You're SORTA certainly of non but no but I mean but you as in as in white gay comedians male Comedians and nobody considers you Jeff Foxworthy do they out what that means. He probably gets a lot more work than me. So considering what I mean but in terms of being problematic or being the source of Russian say that when I got to the the stage of the game that I eventually that being openly gay would not kill my career which it did. I wouldn't kill it but it can. It definitely kept my fire at an ember level yeah but I do really believe right now. That gay white men are being sort of reconfigured aired by the woke as also part of the white male problem. I actually refused that and for the youngsters sure the ones that that are born into into their parents loving them and not kicking them out in the street and not hating them and their friends all dying. That's I mean I still don't. I still don't think they deserve that. Ah but for me like an old white guy I'm going to say oh because I'll say it. I know hey. I won't go yeah yeah but there has to. I have to fit try to I'm trying trying to figure I came back just over three and a half years ago to Hollywood and I really thought that this would be it for me like finally that door is open for me but I really do think let me being a middle aged. White male is keeping that door. CLO- yeah so I'm saying that maybe maybe not all all those everybody thinks that but I think there's definitely Lee something going on psychologically and spiritually where gay white men are now trying. They're trying to wrap us up as part of the problem too and these are part of the kind of civil war that's going on within the LGBT community yeah yeah and but I I as I say I just I just refuse to but I also is fascinating because now I I'm so so genetically constructed to identify with the underdog yeah that now I look at like straight white guys I like. I really feel for them really really and I wish I didn't. I really wish that that hatred honed to a fine edge. I could maintain yeah but I can't help but have empathy THEC. I know exactly what it's like to be marginalized and you're not marginalized. Young ones are yeah and I feel bad for them and I don't. I don't think it's fair and I call this air. The punishment era and I don't want to be part of it because I didn't do this. I didn't wait for this moment so that we could punish people people like people of Color punishing white people and women punishing men and Yeah Gay people punishing the Straits. I didn't see that coming and I I actually you don't want to be part of it but I really wish that I did. I really wish I didn't have such empathy for ups. I now that you're I would sort of want to get back to this. Because this podcast is a bit chronological restart at your beginnings and go to your now how do you how deep do you want to go like I mean as deep as you WanNa go. I don't know you really should have you know how that goes with me. I know I know I know remember. I used to promise to just I wouldn't say-so wearing say stuff and then you would say and I would say afterwards like well. What were you thinking. You promised I would go to jeff but I promised you last time I didn't do it. Let's the very definition of insanity is thinking that things will change if you're doing the right thing over at the same thing over and over again right right so you're insanity is it. Is it your insanity your your sanity. We're responsible for what comes out of your mouth. Yes I would say about doing on your show. I was trying to give you great television. I understand and know listen. I I agree and yeah but you're you know you. You're gorgeous. You made you say you are I see people I think it's time to dust off the word don us and they put a gold plaque and put it on you hanging around your neck by a chain. Put me up with my I was going to say you know you. You could practically in those days. They'll have had like a loose cannon tattoo. I understand that and that was sort of what was fun about thinking it became not fun absolutely and and do not blame you know no no dude just owner do not ever be surprised by whether you whoever you want to call it by by you do too much and they go okay done then. I mean they I mean they as a general unroll day. I think that's yeah as as as this business that shot Judy Garland full up up up full of speed because they wanted her to stay skinny. You know this business choose you up. Mitchell right isn't it. It's one of the reasons I live in an apartment building now that's full of little kid actors and their families and I have to say things like they'll say things like. DNA your kids and I'll and I'll start at twice. I've started this conversation with well. My daughter wanted to be an actor for a while and then with the conversation is going but I told her no fucking way. Am I going to serve my children to the steely knives. Ed this angry. God woman hating business abs- yeah this beast. I told her flat out when she asked because she had wanted to she could she had friends that were acting and making money and she asked me and I said I said when I finally had to be frank with her. I said you're going to be surrounded by people who tell you that. They love you when they don't they. WanNa make money off you. Yes they will treat you like they love you but they don't they. WanNa make money of they will judge Your Voice. They will judge your body. They will judge your face. They will judge the way you move. They will judge the way you behave off camera. You will be complete judgment by these adults that WanNa make money off you and is Azure as your father. I will not allow that to happen. When you're sixteen or seventeen. Ish You can go do whatever you want with your face invoicing Jason Body but for right now. I want to protect you. Don't really mean that you know I kind of do anything. They want with their face and body much at sixteen absolutely anything well. He's that I wanted to appoint. Well there those previous sixteen seventeen years inform you of your ability to let them do that like my son who is now. ATS tes. He's free to do whatever we want I have I have what I mean. Aside from being eighteen I have nothing but trust in his in his judgment I I'm nervous. He just started college just dropped him off on the lunar. I'm just nervous because of the undoing that can happen to you psychically emotionally when you go away from home but in terms of making choices. I don't worry about him and my daughter for the most part I think she makes good choices so I do feel like if she gets to be sixteen and seventeen eighteen years old and she wants to get a tattoo on her neck. I will say to her Europe. You will be limiting yourself yes but if you really want to get a tattoo on your net go ahead got a tattoo do on your neck or if she wants to. I don't she wants to you know like for me for me. The most shocking thing would it be with my children. I want an NBA that that to me would be a profound disappointment. Mba Masters of business administration well. I thought you'd like an NDA like a nondisclosure agreement no no I that's what I thought that you did your kid. You got signed the real world. That's just people that WanNa Fuck Oh to Capri Asa. Let's talk. It's what I've heard. It's true I know I like. My Kids said to me. I want to work on a hedge fund right then I would feel like what the fuck did. I do and that's not raising money for hedges because I know it's raising money. It's raising money for curly equivocating hedging well. Maybe Megan Bush masturbate to the point of orgasm had been stocks and waits until it gets a bud bud and then just stopped and it never goes any further. That's great bushes. Two points edging. Well all right. Let's do the three questions are here refused to look at them. See and you wonder why your show business poison- poisoned but you want it to be spontaneous. Three questions are and this was just then. It's just a gimmick to get to set the framework of the conversation because quite frankly what I've always loved. What about my job is the conversations that I get to having a commercial break. I totally agree. You know what I mean like. Because then I can say is that Guy Dick what are your hours is like. Hey I saw that movie. That must have been rough. Oh yeah yeah that's or would the one of the best things always do is after the clip. Go to commercial and go like so. How is this thing and then have somebody like. Oh my God it's so fucking bag dispensing and to me that's just delightful. Of course it is still maintain a realness sweet of them good conversations all commercial breaks and beyond the three questions are where you come from where you going and what have you learned and so it's just basically excuse to have okay so so where where were you born. I know you know you're on -Tario yeah. I brought my passport. It just reminds you. It's very warn you can barely see the royal seal of Canada but you do have your your visitor. Your first name is John..
