And that's that's you know, that's nice to hear and you know you could if you wanted to write whatever you want it, But you have worked very hard to preserve the memory and the joy that Frank Sinatra brought to so many people. Let's talk a little bit.

History showed that we're the last We did it for six years. When there were no comedy clubs in America. We worked all black clubs in the North and the South, what they affectionately call the chitlin circuit. Black owned black operated nightclubs where I'd be the only wait guy within miles, and then we worked on white nightclubs, or Tim would be the only Black guy, you know, and we eventually worked on the Playboy circuit and stuff like that. We stayed together six years and then the team broke up and I went on my own. And But do I remember the first time? It was like an epiphany that patty that and I'm sure you had the same thing. I wandered aimlessly all my life, not knowing what it is. I wanted to do, and I was actually praying at that time. Please.

You know, you and Tim were a team and what your your separate ways and and develop their careers in different ways folks might recognize. Tim Reed's name as a Venus flytrap on W. K R P in Cincinnati, And I know that you also appeared on the series. And when, At what point were you picked up as Frank Sinatra's opening act? Well, after the team stood up. I came out to the West Coast because in 1975, wherever you went in America, people say, what do you do for a living? You see, I'm a stand up comedian. The next question out of their mouth was.
