"blair bo" Discussed on Good One: A Podcast About Jokes

"Asked the brands. I work with is his his is is is is is is. Are you going to be on. The right side of history. Question is in. What are you selling or or what service are you providing. The question is what do you sand for who argue bagel bites all these big companies. They're so scared of all social change. And i come in and i put their fears to rest. I tell them just be honest. Tell your customers that that. Jp morgan is against racism in theory. Why ms instagram. There's a specificity to the visual language but what people are actually responding to which is the personal narrative of mental health and fragility depression and isolation. i think is the least specific. Part of the show and bo burnham isn't the same guy that he was when he was sixteen now famous successful guy who lives with the film director and yet the mood and vibe of it is very similar to what i feel. His form has evolved radically. His content is similar to what it was emotionally when he was younger. But you know maybe he's a lot. This is not a christmas is a scripted because people are still reacting the much more to the emotional part as i see it everywhere all of us as adults. There is a part of us that is still seventeen right old away and we literally just want it repackaged away. That makes us feel okay about watching it as an adult. This totally succeeds on that level of these talks have been fascinating because you know like i'm currently trying to write about how people are taking in comedy these days it's useful when you have people who've never had to have a conversation accommodate before doing a minute of trying to explain why things are whatever and what's so interesting i saw one person was somewhat taking ours thing of this wasn't him actually almost gonna commit suicide or whatever it's a movie and because it's a movie he's acting and i'm like oh. This person is doing the same misreading in my is a lot of people are which is they only can understand. Stand up comedy as a person going on stage and confessing truth despite the fact of like all these sort of chinks in the armor of truth that we've seen in years despite literally both entire career has been criticizing the sort of performed authenticity of previous generations of stand up comedians. That is still like the bucket that people think of a stand up. Comedians are confessional about truth and are funny all the time which is why on two ways. People like this not saying special. It's good. it's too ambitious visually. This is not a comedy special or there's not a comedy special. It's not funny enough. Both of these people are sort of doing the same thing. You have a very specific bucket of what these things can beat. And why i forever thankful for them is if he's succeeded in anything of pushing against any sort of notion if there's one definition of these things as is gerard as them together have such ideas and the talent to actually do the thing of like. Oh what if comedy specials were more visually ambitious a lot of people can say that tony hinchcliffe has a special that shot in one take right. That's a cool idea. But then you watch especially like seeing. This isn't just a gimmick. Yeah blair bo as actually like. Oh what if i like. I remember when i talked to him about make happy. I thought of the visual before. I wrote any of the songs i knew i wanted to have this. I knew i wanted these stage things. Yeah i think he succeeded in directing this special and that is interesting. That's what the responses mean regardless of the right or wrong. It's like oh people actually don't have. They're they're trying to squeeze into these things and then it's funny to see everyone squeeze at the same time and completely contradict each other one hundred percent right he is the his whole career has been a critique of that idea but at the same time he knows that the audience is going to see it as bow on state. He's knows both thanks. So what do you do with that problem. When i interviewed him a couple years ago he said when i may wanted to make a show about performance. I i worry that. It would be just about me in self-indulgent but then i realized because we're all performing social media it actually had a broader application and. That's a good way. I think at for an artist to just writ large to think about their work. You begin with the specific and you all you have is your own personal experience in your own imagination to work with. But if you're doing your job well. You hit these broader ideas through that performances. They'd natural so then. The question is all right with this one. What are these broader ideas that he is. I think he knows that because of the way he knows people are going to read it. He has to filter it through his own personal biography his own personal and it helps that he is a kind of cultural guinea pig. He was like he did grow up on. Social media are in this sort of cass case of a comic who didn't develop through going to clubs and i think the benefits of this and this is i think again i'll the pivot. This is that i always thought about bo burnham for years that one day he was gonna make a massive hit broadway musical like the south park guys did and i thought rightly. I think that scott rudin was gonna be the one to produce produced his movie. Well it's not it's got ruins not to produce that but it just seemed obvious to me if you watch his work not only the fact that he has the shop. He can write lyrics musical but also the traditional musical. The point where you move from talking to singing is the point when you hit this high emotional pitch. That's the reason you start singing. I always felt that both speaks about emotional language. What i think he's done with the special is make a musical. We didn't realize we're going to do it by himself. In a room but structurally it's like a Musical like book of mormon alike spam a lot. It's leaning on the personal history as knows about but is much more narrative sophisticated and musically. I think a comp. It's not like it's not even sunday but it's more so than his last. Few specials have been. I i when i watch it. I was like was that. Like almost no breaks between songs and i re-watch and realize there's a lot of like him talking and doing bits between but it felt like it was just song into song into song with like little breaths in between like hamilton or some What is it. Sink through or something. It's called it. isn't that. But i totally see reading as a broadway show of it and i would love to see bowe broadway show. There's also like a lot of puttering set yet like music. I mean welcome to the internet is cabaret yes. Clearly cavero did just recently see the does. He has a song from two thousand nine called. Welcome to youtube which you can find on youtube where katy perry is sitting on top of his piano which is very similar to welcome to the internet but anyways the i mean the character he's playing is like the cabaret and the first by when he says welcome. That's a musical theater that that but then what you're saying the as that line little bit of everything all the time. And that's what he's offering dastardly character and to give them a little bit dangerous cabarets about the holocaust the decadence of weimar germany. He's comparing that to the internet relationship to him. There is bet glibness which he's always twang with in a very software way interest. You in everything. All the i bid of everything all of a tragedy. Boredom is wrong all the time. Could i interest you in everything. Everything talk everything. Anything and everything and.

Go round of the different websites with me. He'll be my back are backing city to mess with the they gotta go through a man. I like a real lobster right moving right along. We'RE GONNA to start talking about the pizza connection. This is GonNa be the first of a multi episode series on the Pizza Connection. I got into this with this book. Let me find that book here is last days of the Sicilians last days Cillian. Yeah that was one of two books that came out and that was really great. Well reviewed I mean. That's that's considered the top book on those Blumenthal who was a reporter for the New York Times. And I'll tell you what after reading that book. They must they must have opened up all their files and sat talk with him and really opened up with him. It was it was pretty amazing. What the detail that he went into in that thing now. The other books by itself guy editorial writer named Shane Alexander. Yeah she did not have the Access. And but there's a hell of a book if you're interested in and this is a really interesting complex fascinating case Of of Ma. The Mafia and narcotics and transnational Crime Families Working Together From South America to Sicily Turkey New York City to Pennsylvania Rural Illinois Way. I mean it's Kinda crazy if you think about basically five five continents I mean because they had they had presidents presence in Asia North and South America Europe Africa. I mean that's an enormous. What they what they were doing so class late my career as a policeman by futurist and they talked about what the future of organized crime is. GonNa be back then and this mafi was still somewhat of a thing But this guy said I said that's data He said it's the transnational gangs. It's GonNa be the the Russians particularly Eighty eight didn't really realize how this assay within move into transnational trans-national Ryan and I think maybe this Pizza Connection. Kinda ducked a Lotta them out. Because we're going to talk about what happened over in Sicily. They had a trial with like five hundred defendants. They built a special prison around a rack. Z Trial Court House. And then they just bring their prisoners in and hold him and hold. It sells that they could see. That's out they attended trial they would holler word create problems you see them throwing up a hand gestures and screaming and yeah. It looks like Thanksgiving dinner at my mother's with my mother's family. A FAMOUS ANTI BIG MAFIA-FIGHTER CONEY ended up getting killed for his trouble. They really they really put Sisley so but here. We're going to start out today. This will be the first one I call this the pizza connection that beginnings and let's just go back a little bit sessaion mafia goes back to the eighteen hundreds and I've talked about this before with other people other experts. Fill me in on this. It really was formed to protect the local people on the island. Sissy from the Central Government in Rome new were absentee landlords and and kind of had Screwed over the people the peasants down there. Plus you know Sicily's been invaded and dominated by how many different countries a bunch of around the better traded over the years Yeah through the years. Everybody absolutely in the country the rural areas particularly but all over the Blair Bo. The bigger cities They have created this almost like a shadow government that is going to protect the people but they also as a shadow government they also got a feather their own nest out along the way and lead later years after World War Two they. They didn't have any central government really to be afraid of particularly that was gonna read. They didn't really have central government until about the turn of the twentieth century. Which is I think why you see all those groups in. Italy's is there was no until basically a little bit before Mussalini when the for I around the turn of the twentieth century. That's why you've got the NEAPOLITANS. Consider themselves a separate nation. You go to Italy and they say well. I'm from Florence. I'm from here. They're not they don't they consider themselves Italian second. I guess they had to get used to that That individual government on their own which is kind of bears up to what you're saying. That is interesting. I didn't really think about it quite about that. At the city states it they had all the way back to the Middle Ages were. They weren't lie and buy with that city state. Yeah the Dennis or Rome or or Naples or whatever you did it by more than Sisley identifies this. Assyrian rather than Italian. So that's an air thought about that. And so there's a pretty interesting story about Mussolini Mussolini as one guy that put the clamps down on the body of but thanks a fascist dictator to do anything like that. If anybody's GonNa shut them down and this country. We have huge problems with crime because we don't have a fascist dictator this willing to do what needs to be done now. You young once. He was complaining about some of the legal restrictions on cops and I said Dude I if you guys could all do everything. He wanted to do with any repercussions you'd be wearing black leather boots up your knees and wearing swastikas right around here and Ruling dominate. Yeah that's that's just the nature. We need those controls law enforcement authority. Figures NEEDS THOSE CONTROLS. That self restraint will only go so far in absolute power absolute power. Power corrupts absolutely in the end but anyhow. Sisley story got an interesting story. Mussalini Business Sicily. Nineteen twenty four a passage this one little town of beyond a day Gracie that be how you pronounce that. Gr ECI beyond. It'd be like C. H. He was received by the local mayor who was also the mob boss of the Mafia boss. Which is kind of the way it was then. Those Times The the city government and the mafia basically. We're all the same thing. He was the top politician in town. he noticed. The mayor's name was Cuccia. He noticed that boost leany had a big military escort and a lot of bodyguards. And they say he's whispered in a Muslim his ear. You're with me you know you're under my protection. You don't really need all these cops you know. Nobody's going to hurt us. Lomb around moves lady didn't really like that rejected his offer of protection. The mayor kind of felt slighted and he was humiliated at the rejection by Mussalini. So he told all his people. Just stay at home when L. J. makes a speech and of course nobody shows up for LBJ speech Mussa ladies humiliated. And he wants to give back. And and they say that's the that was the spark that started Mussolini's war on the Mafia. In and boy. He would after him. He granted special powers all the police just to fight the Mafia. He appointed a fashion supporters. GonNa say Sorry. More eight to Recruit a small army. They say of of Caribbean Militia officers and they said they just went out of the country. Sad rented up anybody they thought might be a Mafia member and if they couldn't find them but they had a name they snatch a guys relatives and hold them hostage take their property. Sell it killer. Livestock DID THAT FOR THREE YEARS. Straight up to around World War Two when it got started. They said they detained over a thousand suspects. It used torture to extract. Confessions of the mafioso are complied with them figuring that you know they'll get in with them and and give up some of their buddies and you know it was bad and I think we need to clarify a lot of people think. Oh well. They're just criminals but I mean they weren't in the old world they weren't criminals per se. They were just sort of the local corrupt but they're also looking at for the people out in the country. That was the only law they had in. Mousseline wanted full control and he didn't like you said he didn't like that anybody else had consider. These weren't like international drug runners back then they were doing little criminal things but he was just rounding up. Everybody was bad time to be Sicilian. And historically they've been smugglers they smuggle smuggled cigarettes smuggled out guide to stop. Yeah and so on island and all that CEAC says yeah so they've been smugglers for a long time but just avoid taxes of course government like you like yeah boy taxes now in this country when you do that They value civil suit against you. Attach your bank account. Put a lien on your house or sub jail torture torture your taxes. It was time for the Mafia and then after the war was Katie Bar. The door after wondering lucky. Luciano was over there during the war. He must have laid low state at Vito. Genovese was over there during the war to. They must've wanted laid low. Genovese had had had a relationship with Muslim when a lot of this southern Italians were coming over and the Sicilian just mixed in with all the like my family southern Italian and they came through Ellis island mafia so there were ton of Italians coming over anyway. They're telling everybody Irish and everybody and the the mafiosi just came in with them. But then you know like you said Lucina got deported. So he was over there sorta laying low and that was when Jenna vases over there too and genevieve ingratiated himself with Mussalini. There was a anti-fascist journalist named carmine TRESCO and carmine TRESCO was in America. He was writing a bunch of antifascists newspapers. For All the Italians in America. Talking about damn of Mussalini. We've got to support the Anti Fascist effort in order to get a pass. Genovese told Mussalini he could have carmine trescothick killed and it was. It was your buddy carmine. Galante. Who is known for having killed Common Triska back in the. It was would have been the thirties or early forties. I can't remember the year. But he was very famous anti-fascist journalist and that was how I sort of got a pass to do a lot of lot of not only that genovise eventually allied himself with the with the allies in the low core. But he was safe for the time being because he did this exit this assassination for Moose. Luigia moved up Sicily. I bet all those guys said where their best moved up from Sicily. Up The boot in the regular part of La the though the main part of Headley they would be arrested and and top knocking out local government officials and then he policemen than might have been Fascist and and and these guys are fried. They're ready okay. You know. That's right absolutely now. I did read that. There were some some positive rate. There were some positive results out of this war on this is a mafia by LBJ The murder rate sharply declined and did a little bit better because they a raise rents on their land. At the the Ritz had been held to an artificially low amount by the Mafia. The Mafia control the countryside and the land owners Were not allowed to charge quite as much as I'd like to take care the peasants over the landowners. Sounds to me like yeah. So landowners did a little better when Lucille. Idioms in in power you know and that did. I have a friend Yer Kansas City..

They don't understand the just you talking about the differences between the two team saying, you know, I think one of the things that surround at this point is people lost the notion in idea of nuance.
