Well, my journey is what keeps me inspired to help others when I was sixteen years of age. I had chronic asthma. And ECZEMA from head to toe at rightous had bedridden PMS. Headaches I was as fell. Sick and tired of being sick and tired know what to do you know how to change it. And the doctor told my mother. Lived in a glass house, he's alert to every. That's all he had me and I had my biweekly objections to just manage. So I know by the time out of East in my twenties walking with the respirator. You know that's helped boggling my lungs were. And there was no way to get out of less I, shifted a whole nother new life. Well, I was invited to healing mistreat that changed my entire everything where was it? It was upstate New York, right? The first time I've ever been on retreat I was a mediator, a junk food eater everything's toxic I was eating right out of ignorance and so when I go in this retreat. The bus open the cartilage. The grass, the trees there should be a friends, but it will my image toxin.

After that happened I said, wait a minute what's going on there must be some relationship. To what I'm eating and if I'm going to get well, I'm going to be sick.

"Of the often controversial Hugh, Hefner. The rumors are true ridiculous historians. We are joined once again, with a friend of the show and host of the history of standup podcast. Wayne Federman friend of the American people, Wayne Federman. Friend to our producer, Casey peck, from Wayne Federman. How're you doing? Wayne. I really would rather be speaking. Casey that guy's incredible. He made shaima in, but you won't be able to hear him because he's not piped into the phone, but we will rela- any words of wisdom that he provides on his behalf is he beaming right now because I'm talking about him is he says he says that he has his face is obscured by a giant computer monitor. So I can't tell you that person his voice in my ear says that he is okay. And he just leaned in and give a big smile fund story before we get started. And this is true story way when we were putting together this episode, Casey, actually asked us to hold and he traveled all the way back from Paris, France to be here today very special trip. It's true. It's all true. Yeah. Let me just say that it's very much on brand for casing. So when we previously spoke together, we looked at the history of what we call stand up today. Not just as the, the craft or the, the actual performance that we think of with somebody standing with the microphone in an audience that hopefully loves them, but not always we also talked about some of the bigger social questions that stand up brings to the forefront. And sometimes those can be uncomfortable questions that people don't typically explore now, the they laugh at too, but sometimes they leave thinking in our earlier conversations leading up to today's episode. Use started telling us about someone that was, I think maybe vaguely familiar to us but somewhere, we weren't super well acquainted with, with, which is the comedian and activist dick, Gregory wing, could you tell us a little bit about. Just for our audience who dick Gregory is, well, dick Gregory is famous in the history of up for one specific thing. And that is, he became the first major and there's a caveat, we can go into it comedian African American comedian to play white nightclubs. And how that happened, we will tell you in a moment. I'm sure but he was just a it was a funny kid. He was an athlete. He went to college. He was in the service, and then he moved from Saint Louis to Chicago to pursue his dream of becoming a stand up comedian and could only play the black clubs in and around Chicago and rears really struggling actually had a day job. He worked at the post office. He washed cars all trying to subsidize this career his and at this point, he's, he's married. He has yet has a lot of responsibility, so leading up to this big moment. We're gonna get into that involves another. Historical luminary and controversial figure dick Gregory was doing his best to get into the kind of Chicago stand up nightclub scene. And as you said, it wasn't a very welcoming scene for people of color, and I wanna play this clip from American masters, on PBS where Gregory, kind of describes this moment where he had to disarm a white audience at a club. I wanna say an Alabama or something like that, where someone calls him a racial slur, and he has to take that opportunity to defuse the situation rather than make a scene. And you know put his career in jeopardy because these were alternately his clients, who he was there to entertain. So I think it's really is a very teachable moment about the kind of climate that he was dealing with. So I go down there, and I'm not thinking of anything, I didn't know what to time that a negro is not permitted to work white nightclub. That's an all American in remember not knowing that I used to. Practice. What do you do? When some white person yell something negative out embarrass you. And so I used to practice with my wife, but it didn't work because us to nice and kind and in one night, I don't know how that this little job, and this little hick town miss your Walker, Indiana, so that you had to say no more. So I'm Michelle walking Danna and. And somebody get that nigger off the stage. Now, I was ready for and everybody just froze as why book. Call me call me a ring. Just hearts me trigger. I'm out of. There's no way you can feel sorry for me or embarrassed and laugh. When I got him back now I'm all together. Welcome to. Thank you. Jesus christ. I wanted to hit him myself, and then the guy walks say sorry. This. Sorry, almost pay. You man. I've been trying to figure out how to get to this, so Wayne, I wanted to know if you thought that maybe this was kind of, if he would have had to deal with similar situations like this leading up to this moment, and he almost describes it as, like an aha moment, where it's like this is how I can deal with this kind of heckling. Right. Well he, I feel like dick, Gregory, especially at that time, had a very high emotional, and comedic IQ on how to handle Krauts, and it's remarkable considering he's not that experienced other than basically playing these black clubs. But I just think he had an innate sense of one how to perform in front of white audiences. And to like, had a diffuse these very volatile situations that I'm sure would come up all the time. Right. Because as as you venture before he was he was working. Let's see his comedic career began in what the. Mid to late nineteen fifties. Is that correct? Yes. Yes. Yes. That's exactly correct. And at that time, there wasn't a lot of, you know, African American comedians on television or on the Sullivan show is just a few and once in a while see somebody, and there really wasn't a, a big circuit to play the big white nightclubs, which we called nightclubs at that time. And, but they wouldn't use African American comedian, once, once in a while, they would but as a rule, that's the, you know, they'd have an act, you know, Sammy Davis could play there or something like that. Or, you know, a team or a singer, Pearl Bailey or something like that, all the time, but not, not a standup. I saw really interesting clip with comedian Paul Mooney who was another very outspoken comic, a contemporary, maybe a little younger than Gregory, but still kind of very much like in the same scene as Richard Pryor, maybe like the next generation, but he talked about how in Hollywood nothing could ever be. The two white, but it was very easy to for something to be two black. And I think that's a really interesting distinction, where like you talk about Sammy Davis juniors performers of that Keller. They were a little more palatable to a white audience, but a comic like Gregory, who wasn't pulling any punches. That would be a little harder to take for these folks. Maybe weren't used to seeing things like that is that would you say that's accurate? Yes Mooney is one hundred percent on like people would go, okay. This is this is too much for. But again, dick, Gregory I think really learned how to thread, the needle almost like in a, a Jackie Robinson kind of way that he was like able to like take white audiences expectations of what a black guy would talk about. And he talked about racial stuff all the time that was the centerpiece of his act, but he did it in a very, non threatening very human way, as opposed to an angry way in that same NPR PBS clip that, we just heard later on talks about that. He. Was always respectful and he wasn't bitter and that he wasn't angry. And this was all I'm sure underneath. But again, I just feel like his emotional IQ was through the roof on how to handle these situations. So it wasn't like Paul Mooney who would not, you know, I can't imagine Paul Mooney handling that situation in that club the same way it would be way more confrontational. Yeah. Absolutely. I, I agree. One hundred percent with that statement about emotional IQ recently this, this is not a plug. I actually do. Listen to the history of stand up. Oh, yeah. Season two started. And in season. Two guys just had an episode come out recently about the playboy circuit. And this was something that I didn't recognize this episode for anybody listening is available now when our episode comes out, so give it a listen. This brings us to something that we'd we'd love for you explore with. Us here, which is the interactions between dick Gregory and Hugh, Hefner, the mastermind behind playboy magazine Lear the playboy empire. No, this is something you were alluding to in the beginning for sure. And this playboy clever, I didn't realize was a big source of entertainment and massive, you know, opportunity for working comics. If you've got a regular gig at the playboy club, which was in Chicago at the time of that was a massive break for you. Can you tell us a little bit about how dick Gregory literally kind of stumbled his way into this massive break? The story is fantastic. Well, this is you soom. This is why talking to you guys. This moment is very important in the big history of stand up and we covered briefly in our first season. And then went a little closer in. Thank you. For the kind words about the playbay episode. I appreciate if we ate it for anyone. It's the eight of us that are interested in the history of. Stand up. So this is what happens twenty nine thousand nine hundred sixty the first playboy club opens your. Like, what does that mean a playboy club well in fifty three real quickly Hafner publishes this magazine, December fifty three called playboy, Maryland rose on the cover? There's no date stamped on it, because it might have been the last one and it's basically has nudie pictures in it. But nothing too graphic it. I hope that's clear. What that means? Yes. Yeah. And then like articles, and he was into literature. And so anyway, this magazine, attache cog. Oh this kid who had this dream becomes his runaway success in the fifties? So he is like printing money by fifty seven is outselling time magazine outselling Esquire. It's like this incredible end has a big female readership, as well. So he three things happen around this time one he does this huge indoor jazz festival. Galled the playboy jazz festival to he buys a mansion in Chicago and the call at the playboy mansion, which is like this party house, and three he opens the playboy club and also four. There's another thing, I'm forgetting, he starts, this syndicated television show called Playboy's penthouse, which is this black and white, and the first two years, and you kinda get sort of presents like this party that you're invited to so people are sitting around, and they're drinking, and they're smoking, and there's a guy playing piano, and suddenly Sammy Davis comes in and sayings. And then Lenny Bruce does some comedy it's, it's just very incredible. Like insight into like the world. He wants to create after and that was kind of like a variety show for him. Right. Is that where we get that idea of him with the pipe and the smoking jacket and the whole? Yeah, yeah, yeah. But it's not it is a variety show, but not on a preceding stage in like a living room and then we let's go over to the dining room and then let's get some. Cocktails made over here. And let's listen to side Coleman play witchcraft. And it's it's just a great like promotional tool for the playboy brand, which was, and we talk about it in the podcast that he was going for sophistication like that was his like he thought got if I could make nudie picture, you know, this part of a sophisticated lifestyle with high fidelity and sports cars, and jazz, music, and great literature that. And that's what worked, you know what I mean? So it was like, suddenly not a smutty behind the counter kind of embarrassing thing if you wanted to see pictures of beautiful women, so that was that was another genius Hugh Hefner's. So he's make eats kill killing it killing during Eisenhower's administration. So he opens his playboy club, February twenty ninth nineteen sixty and the playboy club was this. You had to pay twenty dollars and got a key. Literally a metal key later..

"Super producer Casey Lavoue peg REM. I know Casey. When you were way did you hear that? We kind of developed a mythology for you. Based on our knowledge of Europe, French goings on I caught wind of this. Yeah. My my sources back here in the states, where keeping me informed relevant. You know, information you're very tight and very connected, spycraft, you know, you gotta you gotta be you gotta have your feelers out there. So I have a question and you do not please do not feel obligated to answer this case, he first off, this is I say this with great affection. There was there was a Casey shaped hole in my heart gone. Now that you are aware along with all of our fellow listeners about how your your alleged double life in France was portrayed. Would you say that this is accurate inaccurate a seed of truth? I don't know. I don't really wanna blow my own spot like that. But, you know, I. I would say if it's maybe not true to letter it's certainly true the spirit. So all right. Okay. I can accept that. Well, played, you've passed the test, my friends, we have in honor of your return a, we have a not a surprise for you, but a gift for Yoon hopefully for all of our fellow listeners today, while back, I think it was episode one eight or one oh nine we did a two part show on the history of stand up with our Powell. Wayne Federman, who is, who is an has an encyclopedic knowledge of the history of comedy. And Casey, we waited until you returned with your US identity to the studio to have Wayne Federman on the show today for you, dude. I know and I'm so psyched about this because. Yeah, it was like a year ago that I was out, and he was on. And it was driving out the wall because yeah, big fan of guy and big fan of the histor-. Comedy and everything else. So, yeah, it's great to be here for this will Wayne isn't encyclopedic font of comedy knowledge his podcast, the history of stand up on the pod glummer network with his co host Andrew, Stephen is just a delight. And last time we had him on, we talked about Lenny, Bruce, and kind of some more inflammatory comics sort of pushed the envelope of free speech. George Carlin, George Carlin, all with a however many filthy words on air words, there, I think those are the only two explicit episodes of the show, we've ever had because we needed to be able to unbeliev those words because they were very important to the story. It was about censorship. Luckily, however, we did with that episode of way was charitable enough guy that he came back to hang out with us today, not to mention the, my mic was cut for like half of one of the episodes, and we still salvaged with crack our crack forensic audio team and made at least somewhat listenable. And also Wayne didn't think we were bunch of hacks, agreed to come back on which. I really appreciate and this episode is fantastic. Another exploration of some envelope pushing comedy, but in a slightly different way. So without having without having deep dive demographics on how many of us are stand up history. Buffs, we'd like to introduce you to a man named dick Gregory uphigher near a not just in the world of stand up comedy that we very much was a, but also in the world of civil rights and activism. So we hope that you enjoy our conversation here with wing about not just comedy. But about progressive actions in the United States about civil rights in the sixties about the, the oddly, heartwarming actions.
