The news with Gene Grad Name Shad Gaspard rings a bell. You might be a Wwe Fans some very sad news about him. There was a report just a day or two ago that he had gone missing when he was at the beach with his son. But it does seem that His body has been found washed up on Venice. Beach in California. That happened on Sunday. So two people walking on the beach discovered the body officials say it matches his description. Thirty nine year old He was there with his ten year. Old Son they got caught in a rip current They prompted a rescue by the lifeguards and TMZ reports. That Shad told lifeguards. Focus on my son. Focus on my son get him to store and then he was sort of yanked under the water boy was say Yeah police and Coastguard. Boats divers searching searching searching. They finally suspended their search. He was best known for his time with the WWE. He and his partner were known as the as crime time and Since departing in two thousand ten from the wwe he pursued acting career. He had roles like bed. Think like a man to get hard the game from desktop don the series and he was co creating a graphic novel assassin and son and He was found just the other day who well. It's kind of brutal for the Sun because the sun at some point has to go home like you're they're doing a math you know what I mean you know when people get separated at Amusement Park like at some point you go okay. I'm going back to the hotel room. But it's like they'll find dad eventually he's wandering around somewhere when you're in the ocean and you've been on the shore and no one can see your dad and spend an hour and it's time to head back that got gotta be a horrible feeling also. Were lifeguards on duty. Because I know you said lifeguard. Pull them out. But they're talking like in. I guess I don't know maybe New Jersey or something where they're saying. They're not gonNA have lifeguards. That don't go in the water. It's not it's not safe right. Well this This article it did prompt a rescue attempt by the lifeguards where he told lifeguards to go. Get a son so somebody was on duty. I have been in that and picked up by a lifeguard boat before and I did that when I was like ten. And I've had it a few times. I don't know if you guys have like fully felt the effect of that rip current at that time. But it's it's it's crazy and unfortunately you have to swim out into deeper water. Which seems really scary and weird. 'cause counter-intuitive pulling you into this. Feels like it's pulling you into this death and you have to swim toward the death. If you try to swim against it you burn yourself out and I remember. Yeah so I was GONNA say I. I heard that you're supposed to swim sideways. But like Dick you they right right but in that moment who knows no my God I remember the reason. I remember. Super clearly happened. A couple of times used to go to Santa Monica. And just go swim out into the ocean. As young as ten I always body surfed and stuff like that and my step dad and I when I was ten. Eleven would be a couple times a year during the summer. Just drive there and in swim he would swim out. I would swim and we got sucked up into it and it was bad and when you get sucked up into it. There's really not much you can do for anybody around you. You end up being fifty or eighty feet away from whoever you're in there with but there's nothing you can do for them and there's not much they can do for you so we oh we both just swam for our lives and My stepdad like made it in to the to the shore and I may have gone out. I may have had a lifeguard. Come get me. And then they swim out they pick you up in a boat which is kind of weird but anyway just grab you by your swim trunks. I'm just pull you in they. They take that buoy orange thing that Hasselhoff dryhome big swing and Dick straps when he runs in slow motion. It's that thing be so but the comedy is we about about the next weekend. We're at my grandparents house and we're sitting outside having a barbecue my step dad and me and my mom and of course I was like ten and I was like. Oh my God. What a crazy story. This riptide hits. It's pulling us out. John Step Catholic John Swimming for his life. I'm swimming for my life. John's ahead of me to John. John makes it in John's safe. He say on the beach. I get sucked out or whatever and at some point in the evening. John like pulled me aside. He went. Stop that story. Because it's SORTA sounds like we went into the ocean and then I swam for my life and left you out in the Middle Osha Force Missouri a goal. It is kind of how it went down but I do get it makes you sound like a really bad stepdad. Every man for themselves. That's a crazy gene. I'm looking here on the CNN article. Swimming in Marina del Rey. The body washed up in Venice. Which is very read next door? I swam on that beach a hundred times when I say a hundred two hundred. I never thought of it as like a dangerous beach just a very pleasant wide open. I yeah absolutely you. Don't think about this ever in California. The only time that ever happened to me was once in Greece in once in Costa Rica. And you you think to yourself in that moment well I've had a good run and this is how it ends and there's back from this so this is it to about. It happened right down. The street is very very odd. Yeah all right anyway. San We'll moving forward Harvey Weinstein WON'T BE RETURNING TO LA anytime soon. He has been Muss remember. Do you remember conversations when you were a kid with an adult where they kind of said something? And you're like oh I'm a kid but I understand like I get what that sounds like now like when my Stepdad said. Please stop telling that story about me abandoning you and the ocean. I I was a kid but for a moment I was like oh I get it like I understood what he was saying. How Bashar that would sound. It's always weird embarrassing. This kind of weird kids stories. That probably had a. Can we all remember five of those from our life or something was done? And it's it's Don's on you and real quick like anything it's funny and then you're in trouble or it's weird ashamed absolutely some time. Yeah and a Lotta Times. A lot of times like older relatives nation thing or not and older parents and stuff. They talk about their kid who who is like ten thirteen. Who has a sense of what's going on? They would talk about their kid as if they're not even there they're like oh. Jimmy starting to get glasses this year So the girls are really GonNa like that. And I'm like I'm right. I'm right here. Do I was making fun of these. Two kids was friends with because we used to show this balls I I was basically calling them stupid or or talking about how dumb day were and my parents. Were like Brian Stop. I realized that. Oh I'm talking in front of their parents like this. This is not Paula joking but I was like. Oh that's probably very insulting to them. Yeah we've all had eleven twelve or whatever I was Max Pat. Write that down. I'd like to hear those weird stories. Some of them take a bizarre turn for the sexual sadly I do because I remember. Oh here's another one When I was about nine ten probably about the same age my dad lived in a small apartment. In North Hollywood off Laurel Canyon sorta off Oxnard back like a one bedroom. And you know I'd stay my mom's house three days a week and his apartment like four days a week I go back and forth and like had a little bedroom in the back and one night I was sleeping over and all night just like all night. I just heard this woman in the next unit. You know paper thin walls we. The whole wall shared a whole wall with somebody the whole length of the apartment. The whole night was just as chick. Oh Oh she some guy was just pounding the shit out of her for seven hours and like I woke up thousand times. It's like in the next day I just went in to my dad. Has the woman next door. She's an agony show sick. She's hurt. We should call the ambulance on her. And My Dad. Kinda gave like the second his tone change he went son. She was having She was having and I was like. Oh my God who's getting fucked. I kind of was half in between knowing and not knowing but it I knew in a second. As soon as he looked at me I was like. Oh and then this can be this weird conversation with my fucking and celebrate Dad Shitty apartment about getting fucked all night but yeah thanks. Thanks about ten dad. I think back in the day you mean your dad swimmer and surfer who loves the beach. Stepdad was the one who abandoned me to let me be claimed by Neptune. Great Yeah those are the weird sort of adult kid conversations. Where in the middle of the conversation you become an adult. I was a kid at the beginning. Like others. Poor ladies groaning in pain and like when when a man and a woman are in love. Oh Fuck Jacked. And so you're not actually did give you the birds and bees and on that part of it was like my family didn't give birds and bees and they didn't burn calories on their kids either giving them advice or saving them from certain death at a maritime disaster but they were exceedingly honest honest atheist. So it's like if you would have said to him. Hey this checks you know. I'd say to my kid. Yeah she's probably okay. Stomach flu when I go the next room but my my family despite well. Here's what was going on like very matter of fact I never got that and I told you guys before. I learned any sex stuff when I was thirteen years old from you and drew online only years later. I confronted my dad's like that. How come we never talked about it? And like even when I went to College. All the other kids got condoms. You know and you never gave me anything and they just looked at me like you right. Yeah the things have an expiration date. You can only carry. Tell your junior before you have to throw them out and get new sized you up not not actually physically and all right. Let me hit J. B. Well we'll continue on with the news J. B. Well though I love this stuff man for smaller big projects around the home or garage ordinary household glue. Well it's ordinary. It's got the word ordinary in. It needs something strong in need a better choice. We're proud to have J. B. Weld as a sponsor the great I know these guys I met them at Sima. I went to their booth. I Look I love all this stuff. I love the parties like the Super Glue. I like the single stage stuff Jbl If you're working on stuff around your house and you need professional grade go J. B. Well they've been around for fifty years metal wood plastic in more. Don't Glue It J. B. Weld it available at J. B. Weld Dot com home depot. Lowe's autozone advance auto parts of Riley Walmart Amazon Michelson more again. Get some of the stuff and fixture on stuff that Stinky repair guy in your house. You fix it Yourself Jamie. Well all right what else we got well. We'll let's just Type this Harvey Weinstein Situation. He's been awaiting extradition to faces five charges of rape and sexual assault in La. So He's already dealing with New York. He's actually Still in Wendy Correctional Facility near Buffalo so the process started in early March but the lockdown delay. Things like delayed everything and according to variety. The County District Attorney's office still hasn't filed this extra district extradition requests with the authorities in New York so he's cooling his heels with his twenty three year sentence and most of La's courtrooms have been closed the last few months but they're expected to reopen in on June tenth. Which sucks because I just got a jury summoned for June tenth hearings will resume on June. Twenty second wow see I might. I might be on for one to ten days. Yeah House rose McGowan doing these days. I feel like she is angry. Inspiring and insane sort of simultaneously. Well she's consistent remember when when she kind of went after Milano right. It's is Weinstein getting like Bodey fucked in prison or you like like is like like it's very heinous crimes but it's not underage like you know or do P was like. Yo I love gangs of New York Great Movie Man that you produced. How does that how they talk of the prison? How does his prison life work? I always wonder I don't know I don't know yeah it'd be fun the cosby route. He's in isolation only to come out on Sundays to give his sermon to hundreds of inmates that Harvey doing that. Yeah also this is. Why look I know? This sounds harsh. But if you're going to get thrown in for rape or molestation or whatever on the way in you gotta shoot a cop. Don't kill him because when everyone finds out why you got in prison and then you have to spend a long time with a bunch of people who somehow find out everything this world by the way whether it's the FBI or prisons. What happened to Mum's the word? Like how can we ever and finds everything out now. You talked to anyone who goes to prison and he go they know who all the pedophile. And you go. Why did it have the records like your addict fucking cage? Why do you find find out everything? And they got drugs they all got phones they got mistresses they have. Rv's most of them been to the Grand Canyon during their sentences. Like what? Why do you can do everything? It's a prison? It's a fucking box with a cage around. And why did you get all? Why do you have access to all the ward knows? Oh believe me. They know they find out why. How does it work? How how do you? Why are you know every like if if your guard and a guy gets brought in and another prisoner goes? What's he in for? Can you say none of Your Business or you have to tell them what the guys in for special pedophile boss. That's painted Brown or something that everyone knows. Why why do we know? Yes you're wolfer child molesters there's A. There's a lot of times. They're they're segregated because they know that their targets. I would. Oh that's Dan. They wear different colored jumpsuit flesh wound. But you gotTA shoot a Cop. Ya Half just because because then you'll be a hero. You WanNa be a hero for eighteen years. You WanNa fuck in a run for your life with your hands over your ass. Shot a when we went to Russia Tonga and the Cook Islands. Like six years ago. My the everyone wanted to do something different. Very small island went to rugby matches all this. I begged my friends to take. A tour of the prison is wanted to see this prison. More than anything in the world so we went to the prison on Roy Tonga. And we got there at like noon and I said to the prison guard. Like can we take a tour and he said yeah aware is everyone and he said they went home for lunch. strokes for different folks. But apparently you know you're on your on on the honor system because they all come back after lunch. Yeah I just I don't i. They can get whatever drugs they want. A lot of them have get hold of cell phones and they seem to have dossiers every other prisoner. And if you think about it why is that? Why does it need to be and the answer is I'll tell you what the answer is? Prison guards are closer to prisoners than they are to the people who live in their house when they leave the prison. A Lotta prison guards got a lot of prisoner in them potential prisoner in. Because it's look you have to bribe the guard that you can't get drugs into a prison. The only way to get stuff in or to get stuff done or to get information is the cars. Yeah they have to like whatever the drug cartels do in Mexico. You can't find a cop to pay your out of business. Security guards proud economy. Yeah Yeah but why? Why do we need all the how? Why do the guards need to know? They've why does everyone know what everyone did anyway? Shoot a COP. Take my advice. Flash not a WEIRDO through and through. You know what I mean like the Media Marta the either either way to go in with the pedophile rap. That's all sorry it's make sense it it's just it's it's just fell at. Horse Sense Som- just telling you what my grandfather told me all those years ago not making this up files that's right so singer Sia. She generally doesn't seem to like a lot of fanfare series whereas bigwigs big things over her face. You know not very much known about her and that includes some changes in her personal life which I found a little bit interesting on a recent interview with Sirius. Xm Morning Mash Up. She was asked about a recent adoption and she confirmed the story. But it's not your typical story. Here's the clip. You adopted a son didn't you? I actually dubbed the two sons last year the eighteen nineteen years old now they were aging out of the system and yeah and so she adopted two eighteen year old boys who are about to turn nineteen and be booted out of foster care. You don't hear that story ever I I aged out of my dad's garage North. Hollywood when I turned nineteen so the thing about aging now is you're supposed to move the fuck out of wherever you were. I don't know I think I know it's been said many times. But she's an enabler she is. I know I know. We've all seen the bumper sticker but see is Veena enabler. She's She's taking people need to go out. Get A job and fight to keep it and bringing them into palatial estate with her giant wigs and bows. She's missed. She's she's Mr Drummond of our new era an arnold. I do like that notion I feel bad for the fifteen or sixteen year old. Who's like in the system who nobody is going to adopt because the dog at the pound? You know what I mean riot the Middle Asia ones that don't get any attention the five or six year old daughter because he the WanNa puppy or you feel bad for the old dogs right in in the in betweens gets no love why. I'm Jimmy Yang for middle aged dogs the that you Jimmy think about a PSA for middle aged dogs. You've got some juice in this town did. So here's here's the thing. The reason they age out of the system is because the state deemed it appropriate. That when you turn eighteen you must then go leave the nest and get a job or leave the facility and be on your own. So they're not really kicking them out prematurely they figured out. It's it's safe. I still like her and I love that. I can't say but think of your situation because frankly your situation was fairly comparable to this. But these kids presumably Don't have any family of any kind and nobody looking out for them. You know they're eighteen but in in you know I don't know anything about the but they might still be kind of kids and to have someone be like. Come on I will be. I will look after you. I will make sure you get on your feet. And then you know there's a there's some. GonNa Commendable about that. But Gina doesn't it also send a dangerous message? So let's say I'm the instructor on the counselor. The teacher and I got some seventeen and a half year old kids in the system. And I'm saying I'm hey you need to focus you need to study. You need to work on some life skills. And they go. Why should I POPS? Tricia year would is going to stop me in a couple of months or whomever mid tail faith you. Yes that's the security but it's a dangerous passage. It's a dangerous message right. It could be fatale. That's right that's what I'm saying any kind female country star of the mid nineties. That's right Jodi Messina. That's right Crystal Gayle. Who knows the point is I don't have to study because you're right? You're right and many of them many of them. Maybe the the lion share of them won't be adopted by country stars many probably most. I don't know I don't have the numbers in front of me. But then what then? Okay all right now. No thank you for making that point clear. I appreciate so it had to say you're absolutely right So we talked a little bit earlier about Mike Tyson. And what's going on with him and the cross between celebrity and fighting and branding and I have an example of that and I don't. I've never seen the show and I so Brian. You might have to help me pronounce this name. Joe Gucci Dj. I have no idea. But I think has. Ged's says it. Thank you jude is it is. It is yeah they do. The Italian Jude Jude is. He's in Italy. He sounds the alright so the right the desperate housewife of long island or whatever. This is the husband who went good jail. I think for tax rod or something got to ported. Oh he looks like Mike this situation now. That is the situation. Oh Oh it is. It's the same guy. No no no that random picture. They know they've both Kinda. Do Look Situational got that sort of Adam you described right horner. It looks like kid from the thirties. He got the same hairline though. Like really hang onto that slicked back hair. Yeah he's you know the whole thing about that sort of Italian the Goumba from Italia kind of thing. It doesn't really last in California. It kind of washes off pretty quick. You Know Com- Italian come from talent feminine. Nobody cares my wife's Italian nobody cares. There's no little Italy that's how little we care about Towns in Los but if you're back east or long island are these guys are it stays with you for a long time. It's funny year. You just kind of your your molt shed your talion skin and missile lifestyle. Yeah Everyone thought you were Jewish. And you didn't correct them. Yeah right right Jimmy Yang with Chinatown here it. All you got ten minutes later. Got Your Goddamn town asking for a little slice of a street. That has the word little little in front of it. You guys go town. I just went little little Italy now to my chinatowns always in a neighborhood or next or something super hood like it's right always next to Martin Luther King Boulevard. And it's it's not great like La has a chinatown but it's really shitty and smells like dead chicken. That's your guys fall. We WITH ME LITTLE. We keep you out. Who's running it earth? Graham who set this up? Somebody gives us the slam like. Hey this is chinatown. The we'd decide to set up this Chinatown this Shitty neighborhood. That's just poor planning. I'm telling me if we could carve out a little Italy we would do a fantastic job of running that place. You could eat off the streets. That much I know wouldn't hang weird things in the windows that that's for. Damn sure Sorry I like. It is insane that Los Angeles has its Filipino or historic. There's a little Bangladesh now which is like four blocks. I think they're nearing literally in K. Town it's weird. Oh little every township just do it like New York Chinatown Little Italy. The right next to each other. I used to go out there with Jimmy all the time. Not Not Jimmy. But Jimmy K Good Jimmy and we've over there and we'd like we eat Chinese food and then go get you lotto like up. The street at the little like it was. It was cool. Yeah it's very local but you know you know what they should just do. They should just name the corner of Melrose and highland were. The most complex is eating pizza. Boats and SPA. The steakhouse picked up the defacto. Little Italy yeah. Yeah we'd have to go across the street to the Jiffy Lube and tell all the hey look. We need to put on his Italian flags as a long story. If you guys Greece your hair back a little giggle ma. You could probably pass. Put down some checkered tablecloth. That's right Let me light a candle. That's in a wine bottle. Certain towns are proudly proclaimed like okay we claiming as Chinatown or like finally we got a little Bangladesh but some of it feels derogatory like some people call Glendale Little Armenia. And it's like Oh. Am I supposed to say that in front of Armenian person or is that like insulting is a weird balance between the two? Yeah we all Irish. Glendale is like yeah little Armenia and then also the Hebrew Heights always say studio city hills was called Hebrew Heights when I was in high school. It's all the Jews lived up in the hills. And that's why he writes. There is little Armenia in that is little Armenia Jimmy. I'm officially audio Google. The yeah it's on. The Google map has little Armenia. Okay Racist Shit. I didn't want to be racist and now I'm racist. Little Levinas like sunset Normandy literally. There's a you know I gotTa Tell. You from what I've gathered from Armenian guys. Sean works my back. My shops Armenian Cara goes so I talked to all the time. Those guys work together like they're tight knit group they find other they how they all know some. Armenian guy who can do can take care whatever it is. I mean those guys are like we don't give them their due or the credit for they. I know a guy like if you go. Hi cars got no catalytic converter. I can't get a smog day talked. Armenia I know I know it'll take care. There's it's funny because there's a blue collar version of I know a guy and there's mark arrogance of white collar version of my Noah guy but they're both guys Armenians now and I never really thought about it but you gotta suck up to their meanings band because they get it done. That's little so they'll be big. Armenia that's right sorry what else. We Got Gina Graph. Well I think we this up. God maybe last month but but there's been a new development. The pair of autographed gain more Nike Air Jordan. Juan sneakers from one thousand nine hundred five did sell at auction making them the most expensive sneakers ever sold. I don't know if you saw the story but if you'd like to take a guess on what they ended up selling for they eclipsed the last record which was the Nike Moon Show. And I'm going to you that price either all right. I'll all play the role of my mom. I if the first off the shoes can you wear at once. Can you wear to you wear three parachute who needs a WED were they? One hundred thousand two hundred. Do you know how many special needs schoolteachers? You could hire for the amount of money that you spent for the shoes and by the way to play what basketball where they just take the big tall guys they just stand there and they hand him the ball and they just drop it into the hoop because they're so tall the average teacher of a school. La Unified School. She makes eighteen hundred dollars every two years. That's the average and they have to buy all the supplies. They have to do repairs after repair. The roofs when air conditioning goes down the teachers must be HVAC technicians. They have to fight the physically. I heard my friend. Ruth was stabbed by student and they said she had to finish out the day. Literally bleeding ten dollars a year. They pay these people and these Michael Jordan have enough money. How much money to one person need? You can't spend all that money. Who needs more than when? Sorry I think Bernie yes. Okay yes go ahead so I'm going to go anyway. Well did it sold recently with the last dance movie because that had intact right. That was a great. I believe that is the most viewed most viewed thing on ESPN or like five and a half. I'm gay mourn original. These are all right. I'M GONNA say I'M GONNA say four hundred and ten thousand dollars just a little lower at three fifty k. Okay I was going to go with two fifty so I'm going to say one dollar Adams the closest without going over five hundred six thousand dollars. They are now. The most expensive sneakers ever sold the second most expensive sneakers now. Are the moon shoe. Nike shoe four hundred. Thirty seven thousand. Five hundred at. That was a great detail and that doctor and the last dance when Jordan war the original shoes and his last game. Msg and they were so uncomfortable. Consumer technology at better in ten years or thirteen years Sphere all blood. All Yell Chafed. The still scored fifty shows your shoes. Do not matter whatsoever I I loved it and I always love the theme and the one thing you never saw. Because there's probably never happened like you you watch. It was a great series. It was fun to watch. But they'd go well he had this. Young rookie was guarding him. In the first half and held them to seven points and when they were walking to the locker room he said to Jordan. Nice try but no cigar and then the second half started and Jordan was scoreless. It's never happen. It's like all the worst gave his career how they would all every story was they poke that bear and he always came back and made everyone pay pay for it. That's all he needed Incredible you want to bring it home. Gina Gran I sure will I'm Gina Grad and. That's the news.

Okay there the rams you never gonNa go wrong with my. Here's one thing that I don't like about uniforms or architecture or interior design or women's hairstyles. We shouldn't be able to put a date on it. You shouldn't go fifty years from now. You should look at this and go. I know when they that you know what I'm saying. They should be really evergreen and we are kind of putting a date stamp on the this also when it comes to socks. I like socks being socks. I don't like it when they become stockings. And when you take your socks and you make the same colors your pants essentially looked like French nobility from the from seventeen twenty one you it gives. Your shoes should have buckles on them at this point so I agree that I think you're exactly right first of all about the socks when you blend that. I don't know why that became a virtue like everybody looked at the Baltimore Ravens because they're the first ones to do it. They were the satin black pants without stripes on them into the black socks. And then it kind of looks like you're wearing jazzercise pants. Yeah I like those. Those men men's ballet pants and is that really a message. You WanNa send why I mean in an age of HD with all the all the little nuance of with. It looked closely at the numbers. And you'll see that there's a threat in there that signifies the long history in southern California to campus. What are you talking about uniforms? Don't need a back story like they're literally stories floating around the last week about to really understand the rams uniform you have to understand the thoughts behind. No I don't do. They look good when I'm watching. I don't this is a uniform. This is not a novella that requires me to deep dive in and research. Why those things are the way they are. That's bad. Why can't you have the cool stripes socks I mean in? Hd those will pop through on our TV's. Why are they all solid like that continue? Now I feel like it's a fine line between a sock and a stocking but if you get too thin and you make them the same colors the pants. You're now up against the border of stockings versus sucks. You gotta call it just called Khozouri. Yeah it'll take people that if we refer to them as Khozouri then I I suspect teams will stop doing it. Where are you by the way sock? Quick side note In the last ten to twenty years all Major League Baseball teams I believe have abandoned the proper stirrup for the like the fake stirrup thing and at which point I liked I always. I was stunned to learn as a fashion East Asia as I am that the most important part of my literally experience was properly wearing the stirrup. Some of my friends would be like I remember my friend. David Jeff Ski his. Would slouch down around his ankles and I say what are you doing? Man This is this is this is. You're right this is A. This is a gift that you've been given to wear hose to wear the stirrups and poke the put them my right in hindsight. Though Kinda weird why did you have to wear two pairs of socks? One of which was not a sock at all. It was like a giant sock with two holes in. It didn't offer any protection for a while. If you wanted to be cool you would cut the bottom of the stirrup and you would so a piece of nylon on their or elastic on there and then you could pull it up and get a higher stirrup I know who the first major leaguer to pull it up. Higher was maybe bake McBride good call. That's a good call. I feel like maybe somebody from the expos or something like that. I don't know if I feel like Garry. Templeton of the padres and cardinals. I think he wore really high. I I I. It's very strange. I know as we've discussed I had a A weird childhood. I don't know I was obsessed by that. I never liked the guys who wore them down. Low as I say I always admire those who knew how to pull them up here but Jim. Rice had good. Jim Rice War nice and that's why I like him. Here's I feel the same way. We talked the other week about Joe. Willie Nemeth in the White Ridell cleats. And what a huge difference that made to me. I was the same way at the same obsessions. But here's the real question. When the stirrup gets so high that the loop at the top of the stirrup is no longer visible. Where do we come down on that? Do we like the pant going all the way past the so. Just looks like to racing stripes going up the side of your ankles. I it looks weird but that's because of a lifetime of almost zero pitchers ever exposing that it's weird that there's something about the position you play and how it dictated. I mean the kids. Anybody under twenty five has no idea what we're talking about. Is there yes used to seeing the ones that are literally like it's a white sock with all right let strikes item but but I I used to like like who was leading toby? Toby Harra was his name who who had his like. You could fully see disturb and I thought that was cool. Let's figure out the number one position that would justify wearing the high sock where you couldn't even see the top of the loop and the lowest position I had a life. Is this going to eliminate pitcher and catcher eliminating ever do? They don't do it. I don't know why it shows weakness for some reason to be out on the Hump with your With your stirrup expose I say the lowest out of those players is third base that guy wears at the lowest yes and the highest is probably Centerfield. It's a speedster type move. You know. It's a great. You're right because now that I'm thinking about it. I think that guys who wore them up real high. Where I they like. Vince Coleman speedster for the cardinals in the mid eighties. Who Ironically and one of. The one of the more underreported things that ever happened in our lives in sports was in the world series. The fastest guy in baseball the entire Saint Louis Cardinals team predicated on getting on base and then stealing basis to get runners in scoring position. That guy got rollover by the automatic tarp thing during batting practice hit on his leg and it took his speed away and they lost that world series. Do you remember when that happened. I do remember that story crutches leg or anything but it's like I don't remember how severe was but it was like well. Vince Coleman going to be able to play like wait. That's slow thing that rolls the tarp out onto the Under the faked her rolled over the fastest guys leg. That's one of the great ironies of all time. Oh Now. Gary has provided us with a picture and You are one hundred percent right boy those stirrups ice said high. What is it all the way to cloud nine? What's weirder automatic? Tarp thing rolling over Vince. Coleman are famously the Patriots sending the convict out there with the snow blower to clean the thing like in terms of automation and sports. What's more bizarre? What would never happen again. The mean I while I would say that the tarp thing is unlikely to happen again but we don't celebrate the Patriots Long History. People think like all ballot Jack with the flame heating the ball and videotape. Oh No that. The Patriots history extends way further back than that. Go back and look it up everybody. Nineteen eighty one thousand. Nine hundred eighty two ish. They're about before barefooted. Tony Franklin made the scene. John Smith the left-footed Kicker for those patriots in the waning moments in Foxborough. Against of all teams. The Miami Dolphins up from Florida to play snow covered field I think it was. I can't remember who the coach was. Ron erhardt maybe orders the ex con running the snowmobile to run over a spot. Clear off the thing and you see the the Patriots all cheering for. He makes a field goal. They win three nothing. I it really is a marvelous moments for. There's an interesting thing and and you know I. I remember once when I was playing Pop Warner football. And we're playing some team. And they did they had some razzle-dazzle moves and they'd lineup. And these weird formations where they'd have the center lineup. And then the whole team lineup to the right of the ball and all that kind of stuff and I was captain of the defense and I remember the coach just saying look instead of trying to adjust. And have everyone run around she. All-time APP JUST CALL TIME. Call a timeout. And then we'll know what they're doing. I said okay. Yeah that makes sense. I've felt like it's happened a few times in football where something was happening and the other team with standing there. Certa deer in the headlights. What they needed us. Just call a time out right. Yeah just throw the worst. Yeah there's throw the worst member of the defensive unit in front of the plow. Be Like No. No you don't go anywhere like Tiananmen Square rile four square like no no no. We're not young. I'm trying to think of who would have been the best of Scott everyone every time. There's one of those situations where the game just Kinda ends. Everyone just starts running off the field and the team that lost who got jobbed by the snowblower they have out. There's nothing to do it's over happened. It's gone that is that people always do that. Like what if twitter had been around when that would have been a great one is like. Hey there's a snowmobile. On the field. Right snowplow on the field right now. That was happening. And why can you rightly investigate? Pro Football rulebook. Are you allowed to like since they are doing that? Could one of the defensive players or Bob Greasy from the sideline throwing a snowball at the guy like the drive? Knock him off his mark. These are questions that will have to wait for another day Because we're going to wrap good sports here back with a Friday episode around the live.

I think you know it's it's so nice when there's someone that so very different than you in age and an ethnicity and in style and everything but you have so much in common like so much you feel like you have so much you know. It's the human story of feeling like the outsider. I think we all feel like that. We talk about that a little bit. This podcast we talk about. I mean and then and then after I heard WWJ's Jeff I would think I went and saw crazy rich Asians and I saw him in crazy rotations and he him. I think I would argue. Sold the movie I it was. He made the movie awesome. Because I and you'll hear me say this I am that guy that guy. He played in grazer occasions. I am that guy. But more importantly he's got a movie with my buddy. Steve Byrne that they did and that will be coming out soon.

Awesome Dude and one hell of an interview ladies and Gentlemen Jimmy O Yang. Burt Jimmy how you doing. Then how are you trying to figure out which protein Marty Anything about that Shit. I don't think I've ever consumed a protein bar so funny I was sitting here doing like a little pre interview and I was like. I wonder if you ever worry about what you eat. Who MAY NOT REALLY TO BE ONSITE? I don't WANNA own sound like I'm bragging. But think wholesome we go. We're recording right The yeah because I wonder like you know. I wonder if it's by the way I have to tell you. I know I've told you this before. you`re. Marin interview is one of my favorite. Wpf's I've ever listened to my tanks man. It is one of those ones where you say. I hope I can do stuff like that on media where you listen to it and someone was so open and honest and just sharing such a really interesting story that I will guarantee. I will harp on some of those points. 'cause I find them so engaging like You know moving to the states when you were thirteen Going starting eighth grade in the middle of the year meeting having all your best friends basically be kids of of of immigrants. Well I find that so engaging I WanNa talk about that but I was curious literally sitting here looking at these protein bars. I wonder when you if you are if you grow up with a genuine foreign palate meaning like your food you taken is authentic to your culture if stuff like a birthday cake protein bar. Kinda just gotten Never sees light in your family's household so you can bet stuff like to eat just a nutrient type of stuff it. It's tortured I have to. Every meal has to be a good meal. That's how I grew up on. My family is because that's when he gathered around the table. That's the joy every day so you're guaranteed to three happy times in your day and that's taken away from me by a protein bar. I'll be pissed. Your what's what. What what. What is your from Hong Kong House for? This is gonNA sound like I used to have a joke about this in my act. I've been to Hong Kong. I have no idea. Hong Kong is was originally is part of China. Correct yes and geographically. It's part of China in southern China. But then a British actress talk about this in my my set. Now the British came over. Dropped off a whole bunch of opium so we all got high. And then we'd lost city and the British were Nice. Enough stood taking it over colonize against forever. They signed like some kind of ninety nine year lease so Hong Kong was given back to China in nineteen ninety seven and I was in Hong Kong moment. A huge moment Everybody was staring at the TV. Seeing literally. Like a symbolic key handed over from British to Chinese government. And it's still a lot of fear you know because China's still communist and Hong Kong has been a free city state has its own government so a lot of protests a of fear out there the whole occupy Wall Street and everything else that happened after a while. You remember that How Ninety seven you must have been like six not I I. I was ten. I was born in eighty seven. Okay yeah it's crazy. I feel like I feel like my kids are going to get. My kids won't remember the pandemic the way that we remember things in history like sitting around with your family and watching it on TV member. In the I remember when the wall fell when I was a kid we were in junior high school and I was in coach Wieners Class. And he brought into. Tv's like the walls falling right now. Like you need to watch this newscast and just sit and going like like so silly but I remember I remember going like we won like what did we win but I guess for me that thing? I mean sadly not that I'm trying to bring it up but it was freshmen. In Highschool was nine eleven and that happened. I still went to school that day. You know that always turn on the news in the morning. Which is like old ship is at two years in America for you. That's it and I owed this. This happened like is this a thing in America or is this like totally crazy. I couldn't I don't have a reference point and then I was sitting art teachers class Poll loud this Chinese guy and all the kids were just glued to the TV back in the day that had like the Shitty Foxy TV on like a metal cart strapped to it. Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's a VCR on the bottom so glued to that little like whatever twins TV. And I just I don't know what was going on. I was what fourteen years old I was. Just hoping I get the day off and get to go home and of course we did And then only later on I realized. Oh my God is this song. Rick's it thing that I remember when the I remember when the shuttle exploded. I remember not the other way. I remember both shuttles so like there was one that happened in like two thousand to two thousand three. I was in a play at the time in. La on Santa Monica with four. Three other guys in a play about guys who blew up the space shuttle and the shuttle exploded opening night bucking crazy and adding you. WanNa talk about serendipity and then but I remember. I was eating nachos outside my Latin class in seventh grade when the shuttle exploded Miss. Bano she bananas nachos. This woman had sign us. All with. This also wasn't just Spanish classes. Latin sevens we used to have to take Latin in seventh grade seventh and sixth grade at where I went to school. And that was the base of all language. Semper be sub. Ubi is all I remember. Always wear your underwear so But yeah I remember I remember. Those moments are interesting of when society comes together and Kinda goes. Were on the same page right now. We're on the same role experiencing say something at the same time well experiencing history part of history so it does make you feel alive and some good moments in my bad moments you know. Some are just historical moment. Like the key getting handed back. That's not like a horrific event and people knew it was going to be on July first nineteen ninety-seven but you all remember that day in history and there's something special about Batman and sometimes I think about this pandemic that way unlike you know what it's really shitty right now but it's something we ought to look back and it seems like a human experience. We can all relate to a standup going to be interesting when we go back in and to share 'cause you know obviously there's some people do a better than others where you bring in shared moments in. That is the glue. Some people. Don't do it that way site. Everyone does definitely but it'll be interesting to see what people like how people Appel different comics approach the same experience and also. What does the audience want? Do they want a line of comics? Always talking about the quarantine like everyone has according to material or do they just want completely different things? I don't know I think they're gonNA escape. I think a Lotta people won't want to hear about not nice to be out. It's like that will last for a week of your south on twitter. Instagram for like months started. It's been driving up. Why did your parents? Why did your parents WanNa leave Hong Kong right after it seems like Hong Kong? It's got it's so while now. They were screwed over by the Communist Revolution in China when it grew up in Shanghai so this is not really China getting Hong Kong in their life back. There's a lot of fear a lot of people during that time. Because they're like China Communist China's GonNa Screw Hong Kong up you know because I don't know me know this at bay in Hong Kong. The one thing the one thing. I'm very proud of his. I I will tell you what I don't know something because I don't want to sound like a guy who pretends to know things because because I I am by the way. I'm I am the problem with this country like I am an affluent white male who just doesn't give a fuck about a lot of things that don't affect them so with that in which is great. Yeah I am. The problem is is the Joe. Camel stages My rushing teacher from the From the Russian Mafia story. She lives in call now and and I used to say I think that's in China. I don't really know though and then I think I'm wrong. It's America Kim Jong Un. No fix that anyway. But I don't know so I apologize. Keep going so very prosperous. Town became like the one of the jewels of Asia. It's a big import export hub and there is free commerce because it was under British rule so it was very prosperous. Had its own government. Everybody's making a lot of money and hope coat. People have a superior Artie Complex over mainland Chinese people. Because I don't know just a free economy and even the we're on Chinese some people say oh no no no. I'm not from China from Hong Kong or they might even say no. I'm not Chinese. I'm British we will all born with British passports you know. I think that's very dumb. Take on things but there is a superiority complex. When my dad will from Shanghai to Hong Kong before I was born people always make fun of and still now 'cause each speaks Cantonese which was speaking Hong Kong with a Shanghainese Mainland? Guy Accent so all my conference call him all mainland guide buydell. Mo- you know whatever so does definitely like a hierarchy almost in a superiority mentality so when Hongkou whiskey of a back to China a lot of the Hong Kong people were not okay with it. There's a lot of nervousness Including my parents. You know 'cause they lift through the Communist revolution which is really rocks and So they were already. They already applying correction. It took years to get a green card get approved. Luckily my grandfather was already in America. My aunt was already so Is like the stuff that trump talks about that he hates the chain migration because then we came. Alcohol's came so everybody's here now but we didn't get our paperwork until like the Green Card until two thousand and I remember in school. It was kind of tough because so ninety seven. I think that was like fourth grade or so. There's always an ankle in the back of my mind because my parents had talked about. Okay one day. You'RE GONNA go to America and I'm like okay. That's not real stems talking about and there's never solid date because we gotta wait for the US government to give us the green card. So I just went on live my life and I think halfway through seventh grade was when my dad one day came home and say hey we got our paperwork and we've gone on America after the school year and then say Oh shit Okay this is it you know. There's not a lot of time to mentally prepare and I didn't have tools to prepare when you're in seventh grade so next thing you know. I was in eighth grade in America Lazy. That is an that. Is You know it's a far find it fascinating did your you? How is your English before you before you left? Came over here so the best way to explain that it's like I learned. English highlight American. Kids or you like would learn. Latin Spanish drew a completely not conversational. You know vocab words like Bombay established tech. I learned English really not covers. But you're not gonNA survive if you're like thirteen years old at drop off Mexico the I I that makes me laugh so much harder because I have a thirteen year old. I can imagine her just being non conversational like just being walking into places going. I like sandwiches. Yes sandwiches just vocab words words. Oh Wow that's pretty rough like first year. They have these. Esl classes English second lane as second language so it put me classes would have Filipino. Kiss Sri Lankan. What so. That was Kinda my acclamation but other classes like math class? It was all with regular American kids and It was tough man. Couldn't people speaking like way too fast for me to like you know and I? I learned a lot by watching TV. And I started watching light. What I thought at the time was the most difficult American English. Elevation was bt. I can understand that I can probably survive at school. Oh that's so fucking funny. Oh that's so funny I you know I gotta be honest with you though if I if if I was brand new to this country I think culturally was born in this country and culturally. I've always leaned towards a hip hop a influenced by hip-hop. I think often I think the way that that the MC's rhyme and like method man. Big Boy of fucking you name it it just. It sounds prettier. It doesn't even just a here to hear like a killer. Mike talk about about politics. It just sounds better than fucking some White Guy. You know just just does flow. That's that's an interesting is. I'd I'd be probably drawn to that as well and I think a lot of hip hop and black comedian comes from the outsider. Coin of you which a lot of Asian kids can also relate to you. Know what would that Asian kids always I feel like I feel like always had way rougher than any other Asian kids in Indian kids which I guess are in general but They they boys had more of an uphill because when it comes to kind of simulating because it's it's I mean. You guys have such a different thumbprint culturally. I'm a big fan of David Chang's He has ugly delicious on Netflix Question. And he said you know one of the things in this leans in the culture appropriation. I didn't understand coach. Appropriation IS I. Talk to check the work. At the punchline Comedy Club in San Francisco's bike big dreadlocks. And she said I said I don't get cultural appropriation. We were talking about Kylie Jenner. She was like you know what I'll tell you what it was is that I was forced to feel ashamed of that as a kid. And now it's cool and it's hardly right my head around and then gave it chain. Said he goes. I remember people come over to my house for lunch. Friends White Kids and my mom would whip up something like I'm something it smelled very like fuck. Maybe maybe maybe a Z. Said this but they were like look and he was like. Oh my mom's proud of this. This is what we love. And you think it's gross and now today I'm going to the same restaurants and it's white kids cooking it up going. What do you think of this up that that you you made Bonomi for that and now at school yeah? It's tough I think. Every Asian Kit went through that same experience of our parents given us a box lunch to go to school and everybody else eating like a pepperoni sandwich or whatever and it will open box lunch than fish head like what I think they. They showed us on the pilot episode fresh off boat. But it's a very relatable experience. I went through that and I think what it is is White people are considered what what other people consider America. It's like you look America. Right. I've been here for ten years. Seniors even was born here to. It'll look me as American Asian Chinese even black. Americans are okay Lebron James. That's an American person was Asians Chinese. Whatever or in the end. It's always looked at as other. I feel like And especially the people that were born here appointed semi Cisco that's been four or five generations. You know could have been here longer than some white people that have Irish ancestors but still they look at the other end. That's that's frustrating. You know. Yeah it's Kinda be what what was it? What's it like being a part B. Not solely but almost being in every every part of this beautiful of Asian influence in in our society today with crazy rotations? Fresh off the boat. I mean you kind of singlehandedly. The wrong word to use. But you've been a part of every one of these big influences and seeing Asian culture kind of blossom blossom. Is that the wrong word but like scenic finally be seen the planet. I think that's why they always talk about representation matters and all that I think we just want to be seen because it gets like back in the day allegra watching Bobby Leeann Matt. Tv Ten song show comment Apollo was when he was still Dr Kennedy. Not Kim Jong from the hangover and I would literally call my dad com walks. There's an Asian guidance screening. Needs fucking. Funny you know when Yell Main was ended in NBA. My cheap ass parents. They actually forgot one hundred sixty bucks for MBA league passed so we can watch a video game. Those are all little watershed moments riot. But they're all very still Mitch. You know you have one or two funny agent guys and nobody's seven six on spicy out me so I I think why craze which as was so cool was the whole cast was Asian. And we're all of us. All the actors in the show are so used to sitting in a token Asian role or some kind of Asian Wall being the only Asian guy girl in a shop Asians we can actually be actors. We're just playing characters. We're not playing Asians anymore. I'm playing the stooge bag billionaire guy. Can this playing this kind of overwhelming father character? Nora GETS THE SHINE. Were comedy And then you've got the Heartthrob Asians like Henry Golding. The bomb com leads him like constants. Woo so everybody gets to dig in as an actor and play these characters instead of playing the Asian person and I think when an audience watching it especially Asian you see yourself represented in all spectrums. Not just because bobby or like even the character. Apu should never the entire race. But when there's only one of two of those characters you see in ends up being the representation you know and it gets amplified by. I think getting lot bearer reputation as you got different spectrums of Asians and crazy rich agents really like a watershed moment. I think being in the business People were a lot more open to developing Asian stories telling authentic stories and giving Asian creators. A chance yeah it was it was a our best friends are Asian Our families a vacation together Vietnamese and and Chinese Chinese Chinese immigrant from Vietnam. No so so and they are I mean everything. I've learned about Asians. Everything I've learned Ike the Asian secrets from hanging out with them like a day or my friend. Sandy is She's Chinese Vietnamese and I got new sunglasses. I said try mall. And she goes on. They're not going to fit on my face and so why she goes my nose. They'RE GONNA fall of my face. That's so true me he's very like it's it's sliding off. I can't get the adjustable screws me out and you know it was funny. I need to pull out another pair of glasses feet so these regular knows bridges like you can buy an America. There's an American classes when I went to Japan. All of these built in knows bridges a higher. So you can support knows better and here. They have those as well. But it's very hard to find Alternatives so my face is not normal it's alternatives and you see this little thing just makes you feel like you're you're you're not normal. You know your only she. I've sandy and I are very similar. she's she is my wife's best friend and we are identical human beings and we're very inappropriate and Manon Sh. I have had so much fun discovering the day. She told me about sunglasses. I was like a kid in a candy shop going up to every Asian person just looking at and she's like burt. I told you that you can't just go spread this around. You can make the buck in bit and I was like I can't like I. She one day she goes one day she goes. Were walking our dogs and she goes to run after a dog and she doesn't look like she runs that well. A guy you on fucked up. She goes on major. We're not known for running and I went. What was looking up bitch. And then I google it. An Asian person has never won a gold silver or bronze medal in a quick foot race in the Olympics in history except hurtling a hundred polling. That guy was the national hero. He was like the yawning We never win anything so I grow watching Olympics in China in Hong Kong and hours. Get very excited. We're good at swimming. Diving gymnastics during the Olympics. Like four weeks in the first two weeks are these skills for some water sports and the the last half is a track and field so I know China in the medal race will do really one of the first half and then America will kill it in the traffic because we win win shit until this guy came along and that was like very cool that is but it's been And you know I think Palate wise they've just expanded my palate and the like things. My kids would never eat but IF SANDY COOKS TOM. Her husband cooks it. My kids are like Oh yeah. We'll try it that's awesome. Yeah Yeah it's It's the one Kinda shitty thing about this quarantine is that we usually spend just about every night over their house hanging out and And we haven't seen them in like two months so whatever. I don't know we had do like virtual potlucking cooks on their cookson swap. It out I cook a lot. Yeah I have a cooking show to Do Yeah I'm obsessed with. I'm I'm obsessed with You know growing up. I didn't know any Asian kids like at all. We're in Florida. There was one Samho and Rondo. Were in grade. School with me. Didn't get made fun of Not at all grade school and so it wasn't like it's not there yet. Yeah yeah it wasn't there In High School we didn't have any in our high school at all and then in college there was one kid that I knew that was Asian. Ray and I mean like my I joke about Asians was written with Dr Ken. I did not know that Japanese and Chinese were different languages. I didn't understand literally was like sitting with Ken and I are these. I saw these two older fighting with the security guard the Ontario Improv. And I said to. Ken Say your parents were trying to get backstage. And they won't let them and he goes those my parents. I said well sure and he goes. I'm fucking certain not my parents and I said well. What are they saying he goes? I don't know until we get closer. I'm into what they're saying. Is that really upset? And I don't think it's their fault. He Goes Burt Reynolds speak Japanese. Those like the Japanese and he was like evening. Sir Now kind of today saying and he goes. I don't kind of fine him. But it was like it was. It was and that was like the first. I just didn't know I didn't know anything GROWNUP in Florida. You knew black and white and Cuban Puerto Rican like a demon only Puerto Rican kids so I think that was one of the coolest things about and not to go back to your marriage and interview. One of the coolest things was the like. Kinda the honest you share with like loving SP- sports and hip hop and going like you know. Your story is just every kid story is just a tad bit more amplify because we all felt like outsiders everything else like Dave. Chapelle had a great joke. You remember first grade going to first grade and you felt like all. The kids grew up together. You always felt like everyone knew each other. And then when you share that story of showing UP MID EIGHTH GRADE. I don't know why stick on that so much you go. All the kids actually did already know each other. That's so true man and I mean it's hard to make new France Kids at that age. They're not very friendly. There's they don't have the mechanism of. Let's be nice to the new kids quite the office guys Art In eventually when I did start. Mole friend group or fine old friend group in high school. First of all I will go hang out at poll allows kept flash Art Teacher every day during lunchtime because he also ran the Chinese Culture Club in his room. So at least some of the Chinese kids would Be Friendly to me and we kinda become friends but in the back of my mind. I'm like dude. I didn't move to America just to hang out with other Chinese kids. I WanNa see what America's about. I WANNA have every kinds of France. But they is everyone was Leeann. You know like you're saying so set. In their way they all knew each other. They all went to Middle School. Elementary School together so finding like friends that were like the people that didn't have a like label like they weren't the IMO kids. They weren't the rockets. They warned the gangsters they weren't athletes. It just a group of random people like these two Persian guys. My my one of my best friend's sake from Bangladesh Korean guy and another Chinese guy. You know what what was that you went to school in Hollywood right. I want a school in Beverly Hills. High School really. Yeah only because my dad used a fake address. What did you do before what you do? In Hong Kong said Hongkong worked like US sales for think dow chemical in like Mobile and stuff like chemistry companies. It was very successful and this start his own business in medical equipment selling dealing Big import export hub. So then when he came here you gotTa start all over man He hustled his way. Ain't got a job. At Merrill Lynch Financial Advisor. His his thing was only bring you clients from my friend list in Hong Kong. So Yeah you look at your dad differently. Now that you're an adult and you're kind of like Ca I mean not kind of successful but you're successful and like you've made ways for yourself you look down. Go Fuck Man. I can't imagine taking where you are today. Starting all over brand new like imagining. Revamping your career in Bollywood and being like Yeah you look at Your Dad and go like in a different light. Now that you have a little hindsight as opposed to the way you looked at it maybe at eighth grade when you were like kind of trying to assimilate you didn't know that makes sense yet. No I mean I was never like I always respected my dad's work and hustle. But now so yeah. I definitely feel what you're saying more than ever. It's like. Wow abide to relocate with a family personal you know to a different country Of course it will be hard on the kids but hard on his career. But he just always kept hustling. He never complained he he never. I guess empathized with our situation. He never was like A. I'm sorry and you have to move in a new school but you know you get over. It never had that but the thing is he never gave himself that either because he wasn't like feeling sorry for him so I was like. Hey guys I got to start over and like this is tough so just that type of guy and think through that leaders would just like okay. Let's not go feeling sorry for us. This is fine. Yeah that's really a fascinating Like that's almost like a fascinating deep dive when you think about it. Because you're you're sitting there going like you'd want you to hear you out and go that these kids are American kids. They're they're not the most open minded kids on the brand new kid and your dad like hey. I'm a grown up dealing with people that were born racist and are still racist and I have different accent. I sat like I'm everything your dad get an American name. His name is Richard. This is actually in my special. And My name's Jimmy. That's not my real name Jimmy. Just because it sounded good sounded American or whatever so Richard. Did you pick it? No no no no I was born with it in hall born like okay so for example like my brother. They named him. Roger after Roger Moore James Bond Guy and my brother hated it so on his eighteenth birthday he was like fuck this. I'm like Oh about Roger. Moore everybody call me Roy with like what the fuck like. What's Roy? That's even like an older whiter guy's name that's worse so my dad named the Richard asked like that. Why did they miss out? Richard like because I want to be rich. I was like that makes sense. You know I get but I mean some of the Asian Chinese names are just so on the notes like I think every Chinese family with no like a old T. Her name is like happy or something. Yeah Hi my mom as a family friend. Happy my friend Sandy Got The name Sandy from Greece. All right any sandy. that's That's where does she told me. I don't know I mean but yeah that's that's really interesting. Jimmy Yang is such a great fucking name. It sounds like gusted. Sounds like a it? Sounds like a nineteen eighties fusion restaurants. Like got just such a a great. It's just it's a game naming. Don't forget it really. You don't forget I struggle with it quite a bit because my real name is Mansingh. Oh Yang it's like four different words very complicated name and Jimmy wasn't even on my passport but all my friends at since I came to America calling Jimmy so my old friends in Santa will come man. You know fun and when Jimmy Yang Like I. It's spelled O U Y genes spelled out. It's like four vows together it's impossible to pronounce. WanNa I one st every host with fuck it up and I went on stage. I would sue them. You've been an open mic. I went by low bought Jim just with our readiness of Poker Book Somewhere. So still so my old friend. Stand up me as low balled Jim but and then I can use it. Jimmy Liang like a fully sell. Obgyn G. and it just never caught on. It was never right like Asian. People wasn't sure about Chinese Japanese. Should they root for me or my some weird whatever person so don't one let's? Let's do an experiment. Actually I opened for Damon. Wayans How do you pronounce your name? I was like Owyang. You know US Nasr Change that name do not always GONNA be out. Shit Really WanNa change the name it just maybe the spelling out of it could be never married to selling. Some immigration offices spelled it for us right like because our name is written in Chinese. There's it's not written in English so you can sell like Do you know the rapper. A freestyle rapper. Mc Jin No. He was really sick on New York Chinese freestyle. Rapper dose in six apart for many years He is the same last name written in Chinese. Its own you know by his stole a few Y e you when it's a totally responding to say names and so so eventually I was like Oh give it a shot. Let me like do like Samuel Jackson. Like put the Owen middle and Yang. In the end and then uploaded re uploaded some old sets of my Mike. Little two minute bits on Youtube. Facebook never got traction now with that new very Chinese sounding last day everybody got behind. Chinese people got behind his. Yo Look at the sharing and then you'll look at this Chinese brother doing stand up you know. And then a very niche community among community. Find it WHOA. Yeah you know I remember the first day I ever heard about longs in my life. I was in Denver. I had these great jokes had so many great jokes. Just really like real honest jokes about Asians that I just showed. I didn't know I was learning like this. And they were all crowd. When I was younger everything was like a joke was interactive and then. I would tell you my joke interactive and then. I've got my joe like Oh you're Filipino. One thing. I know about Filipinos. They've got the most American names are. What's your name Martha Martha like? It would be still right and I had a joke about beating. Amis people and I was really really good. I'm not anymore. I'm I'm not because I think it's racist but but I used to be really good at CNA burs and just saying where they're from like. Are you enemies and they go? How did you know that is a skill? That's a learned skill. It's a comic skill from doing enough crowd. Working and being wrong you could also tell what cars people drove. There was like. It was amazing. How good I was. Stand up when I was younger. And interacting with the crowd numb. Yeah and I remember in Denver Nailing it and saying to this woman you Vietnamese instead known I said I said no I said where are you from among I'd never heard of it and the way she described it as of like she was making it up? She goes where the hill people I went and I was like I was like I kept going. She's talking with me. And then and then white people going Nowhere Very Large Mon community here in Denver and I was like hold on. You don't know what the fuck and I dug myself into such a hole and then all of a sudden we get when get done the show and I drank this lady and she told me all about Mont so go ahead. I apologize when the corps after Grande Torino. Honestly before wave of okay. 'cause I learned about the mom mean even being Chinese. What's really didn't know what it was. And I learned about granted you know maybe not the best representation but then when I changed name. Yang apparently just Yang itself is very popular long-lasting. That's also Chinese last night and all these long brothers insist like messaging me and sharing. You know all these videos on facebook Nikki the video that was never getting traction with skin like two million views like and am I fan. Base aren't girl in you know in a face where you can check the demos like which cities you have the best fan base and then I realized it was like Minnesota Denver. Like all these places would a big mall community and I didn't trick them into thinking on Mom fan like I'm I'm very happy. And I love the people but that was a very Beginning phases of my staying up finally catching some. Traction you catch. Do you catch like into racism within Asian communities. When you do something like crazy rich Asians which by the way. Correct me if I'm wrong. But it sounded like was a story based on Privileged Asians. And then you get people like once again once again. Correct me if I'm wrong but I listened to David Changdu. And they were talking about Asians and one of his friends on his show called them. Something like the jungle. Asians and I was like wait. What and he was like you know like I'm listening. Going like the fuck. Did he just say you can't say that? But it's an Asian person talking about Asia. People send way we would talk about rednecks or hill people our country yokels and. I was like wow and then I thought do you get like is everyone's so happy to have representation that you are at the first level. Everyone's like I don't give a fuck is crazy rotations. We all love it. And then you look at it and you go. True acceptance is when Asian Start Shitting on Asian? Going bug that guy. He's all Singapore. And we do that. You know if you call Chinese person Filipino. You might get pissed whether in reverse if you call a Philippine Chinese. He's like whatever you know and then of course will hate on each other even regionally like selling you all people hate on mainland China their neighbors because they speak a different dialect. There's a lot of that and I do the next step. I'm writing scripts. I'm the teachers know which it often does. A lot of Asian characters always try to find the nuances of life. Okay because usually when you see to Asian people in SCRIP. They're buddies their best friends or their brothers husbands whatever. But what if it's a Korean guy a Chinese guy and they actually hate each other the most a fun dynamic you know. We're not all whereas my wife would. We like hey guys you guys hang out guys go talking about like fucking hate this guy you know. I'm not saying China who hate Koreans. At vice versa. Relations often to New York yet to find the nuance right But I think he start off with on the broad strokes. I think everyone was stoked to see. How may if you will Filipino or whatever but now even crazy mutations like we had Singaporeans which were mostly immigrants from China that speaks the Hopkin dialect or to Singapore dialect? That's a little different distinguish. So it's cool like we even though Kuku jar like my character says that it's like Little Dick in English so so so may show or in Hawk end so we do that in so the local fans got released stoke than of course the Filipinos got stopped when they saw Nico Sandoz Great Friend Greg Median in the movie and also we hired a Kris Aquino. She's like the Okra of the Philippines and she had like a two line. Cameo in that will be So people really stoked about that so it's good to see first of all the representations of just your race and then maybe more specific representations and even my dad. He's specifically proud when people are from Shanghai Chinese from Shannon's ICK rubbing a string like down the street from my dad. So especially proud of y'all well that's really fascinating it really is it do. Do you ever have to deal with? And how do you deal with? I don't I'M GONNA say. Do you ever have to uncertain? Do when you deal with a network or a or a studio who immediately. They just WANNA capitalize on Asian people. And they're like yeah. How are we getting this year? People like I understand. We gave you this. How do we distribute also big numbers and we all got big paydays war? Luckily I think they're less active than that right like. It's usually they hearing pitches like okay. I got five idea. Let me pitch this. And now because the crates Mitch Asians on maybe getting more of an opportunity than they take him seriously There was one time before they would have been. I remember when I remember hearing a network exact. I can't really get into detail about this. I ever people can figure out very quickly who it was but I remember hearing in that were exact saying something very negative about Asian people to me in a meeting and no one said a fucking word and I remember going. I remember being rubbed the wrong way by that going like that's and and just going like if I told my friend that he WANNA to quit this job and yeah now. I'm not saying that doesn't exist status. I started this business. That was everywhere. Me You talk. You know Steve Burns very well. I'm starting he shared with you his uphill struggles and Steve is not Super Asian centric in his act and math was half but he's not he's not sitting there like he's just a he really just came at comedy from a dude from Pittsburgh Kinda personality you know any always spoke about. He's always been sensitive about his his his place in the world like anyone else but like like I said What is it like when you go in and you find like white executives be like like almost now? I think it's it's almost even if they are racist. And just see dollar signs on our heads because crazy Richard agents. I'm okay with that. 'cause that's given us a chance right But I do see some opportunistic. People opportunists like a studio say who it is Sent out this Just like a one sheet says we WANNA make a movie. That's like The Chinese Golden Dragon Palace restaurant and who wants to write it and then my agent said it is was the guy that came up with the idea. Was He like become family. Why does he feel so strongly to write this? This just feels like he's taken advantage trying to make another crazy rotations without any action or any back story and I hate it stuff like that and then you also see a lot of Mina names and it's not even that negative thing but a lot of Asian people that never Was with the community you know but because now again some heat and now crazy which Asian stood well they wanna rep the Asians. Now you know me and my buddies call. Those people opportunistic agents. They know who they are out there. But and I'm not saying it's a bad thing I wanted to succeed also but you don't make sunshine. How much fun was all your scenes in crazier occasions are like fun bucking seen for fine and one just done just when you came on and and and I had known you at the time I think I think I saw it. I don't know if I saw it after. We met her before we met. But I remember knowing you when I saw it and then you know I don't know why for whatever reason I I can't. I cannot emphasize emphasizes snuff your wgn on a plane. And I fell in love with you. I was like I started rooting for you. It's it's I've said this a million times. I'll say it one more time when you become a fan of someone Like an I'm fan always. I'm always a Phantom Fan. Rogan's I'm a fan of Tommy's I'm offended. Joey's I'm a fan of them when they do. Well makes me feel good excited. I'm a big fan of aqua peanuts. I'm a big Fan of hers. Absolute like a big Fan and my kids are huge fans of hers and our and our best friends Their youngest daughter Lily who we call Lou. It reminds us all of Aquafina like they're very similar personalities just very very funny very like unique personalities and so when I saw both of you guys in that movie I got excited when when I gonNa Fina in Jumanji switched over to Danny devito's character. I get chill bumps. I pump my fist and I was like fuck yes. She's killing it when you showed up in that movie. I go fuck yeah. This is a great character. It's great scenes is beautif visually gorgeous. And you are the guy that I would be in life. You know like yeah. It'd be in life and so I got excited but all I could think was and this is on the business side. I kept thinking. How much fucking fund is he having right now so much fun and not just seems alone because when you shoot it seems know as a fun scene but those one sees require tons of energy and its we shot data nine hours exhausted. You know everybody asked me was like all those models did you. Okay any of the models. You'll I was dead like I had to go back to my hotel room. I was you know and I was badly sunburned at everything had a shit but always not complain. But I'm saying like those aren't even the most fun days the most fun days when the big wedding dance scenes in the weddings and all of us were hang out. We all have like no hotel like holding rooms out close to the awards. Playing video games in room in one by one will get caught down because the fun wasn't I guess. Just shooting a rocket launcher like dance. Say it was just a commodity of hey with these other amazing crew ask Asian people and being an all being together almost like bad example but like Saint Elmo's fire being together with a group of artists all at a very young part of your career and getting to be a seminal moment not just for art and movies but for your communities Ole and nobody was a star. Some of US had done some stuff. I've done Silicon Valley. Gem has done a Lotta stuff constants. Done fresh off the boat. I almost got. This sounds so stupid. I got so protective of constants when they were started shitting on her like I just only because I I love that movie and I and I. I really loved crazy. Rich Asians don't know why I you know why part of it was. How like not halfway through like a third of the way through? I stopped seeing Asian people. I just saw I started going like just following the store because that in your mind you internalize and humanized Adair. Now you just watching a love story and that is exactly the thing we need to make. Asian people feel normal to everyone when you get in the brain of like. I'm just watching RONCA. It's as as as elevated as I've said of horrible things at times like we have like panther ones when we left back panther. I sat got in the car with my kids and I go. God wish they'd do something like that for like White People in like Superman Dad and I was like. Oh Yeah Yeah Good. Call then mind. Yeah yeah so but it was. It was a really cool. I really did love that movie. And but how what? A NEAT wouldn't need life experience. Yeah we all came together and we just do like Nora. Pheno blow up at the Henry. Everyone so we're all from the ground up wall. Still best friends like best of friends before the pandemic whenever the Australians remmy Chris was in town Jemma the British seaborne town will hang out and oxygen Like five blocks away from me so we just hang out all the time when we're in town we'll always the first people would call on. We're in town. John I bet did you. Did you get to go promote that When they like. How much fun was it was fun? They teamed US up. One rose actually spent a lot of money for money because they believed in the mobile and and once again. Start this from the beginning almost. Because I don't think the average person listen this understands but like Asian dollars in movie theaters are a big fucking deal yet and like so like a global a worldwide and and this movie had they were the red carpet out for you guys. Yeah well we did really well the medically actually we bombed in China. Believe it or not real because they released it. It became such a big. They weren't going to release it. We didn't get released eight in China but we became such a big deal here. China Gave a release date but it was a month to lay. So there's two reasons he will already pirated. Watch it secondly movies in a very Asian American point of view or a very modern Asian point of view so when Asian People. Watch that movie. They're like Oh why a mom supposed to be back guy. She's correct. You know the sun is coming home. The sons an asshole. So they're like what is going to not you know it's down with the postal flip. They don't understand it's different so we didn't. We didn't actually do well in China. But we did well domestically. I think you're maybe Koreans But Yeah Man It was a great experience and I can't. I mean they're still working on the second one swift side. I don't know happen but I can't wait to go back and hang out. It will if there is a role for a fat white guy it would be. I would by the way I would. Yes yeah I just seemed like such a fun movie to shoot? Now tell me about I want. I'm always curious. About how privy to the drama on fresh off the boat with Eddy Wong? Oh I don't know too much about it. I I did a guest star on three episodes of fresh off the boat without their last season. I think you wasn't there. Any hits them every now and then just because we're in the community and we talk you know dude. He's one of those guys that I fell in love with right. I've I've made some jokes about him being a comic. But that's just because we're as comics. Stand up I remember a joke. One time to I think I forget who but I was like like you know chef I go. I'm more shafts than Eddy. Wong is a comic comedy. He just did it a couple of times. I don't I don't think he ever focused on it for like someone like me and you like you came up at the CIA. You GotTa fucking love comedy it some up at the HA. It is a rough fucking place to cut your teeth. 'cause SWAT explain to people like I had to pay five dollars. I've been driving our pay. The club five dollars to five minutes open MIC in front of five. Shitty pissed off comics. That sounds horrific right but you gotta understand as bad as that sound. It was better than any alternative had and I loved so you just gotTa love it more than that's horrible sounding thing. Yeah what was what was so. How did you tell me about getting into stand up and kind of and once again? I apologize by. I'm putting stereotypes that don't exist but what was it like explaining to your parents. I'M GONNA leave. I went to college. I did well in college. Or yeah they don't they don't get it like. I told me get it and my parents and I was written up in Rolling Stone magazine and I had stone option rights to my life and they were like. I don't know what the fuck you're doing akin. Imagine if you had like a internship at a you know like you're on your path to this is the dream I I left and gave up my fucking friends so the the life that you're following and you want to do what exactly they don't get. My Dad was just hoping it was like a terrible face but I thought it was higher. Something and just delusional. He doesn't know what stand up comedy was never grow with right so I just called it a talk. Show talk show. You'll be Jay Leno. Like what are you doing what he doesn't understand it at all. I even when I found some not success but when I was starting to welling comedy at did breaker. It's comedy club. I think I was middling. Or maybe even opening and then And Vitamin database to the MGM parents. My mom was there and put them up in a nice ruled that they hope this up with Adam. Really Nice Seeds Matrix for manage took care. I'm like Okay Asian parents. They don't understand stand up. They understand vegas their son still well. And then my buddy Jack Cohen Was He was the middle? I was the opening. Act that night and then He asked my parents outside You WanNA shake hands the people after the show and then Jack saw my bad come come out. He's like Oh my God you must be so proud of Jimmy. He crushed tonight. He was so good and bad. Dad just looked at no Jimmy. Not Funny Liquid. Why what did I understand because a lot of the humor is cultural? You know so. It doesn't understand and he doesn't appreciate understand standup as art form. He came around a little bit during second third season. Silicon Valley because he understands TV. He's like okay. Silicon Valley is a very good show because the writing very good so kind of still give it up to me. You'd never semi acting was good anything interesting so so it was like a slow build and that took him to like the crazy. Rich Ages for mayor took him to the Patriots Day premier. And that's when it got it when they take a Selfie with like Michelle Yeoh and like mark records. So did they did. They win. Crazy change came out was there like this. Like watershed moment. Where they under like of pride where they're like God damn it this is. I mean obviously I think had success before that but like at that moment as they did they wrap their head around it yet. They Wanna most special things Actually last two movies at did 'cause facing Shot IN MALAYSIA SINGAPORE. And the last week of shoot. I flew out. I flew my parents out to kind of hang out and they loved it and the good thing about having a lot of Asian friends like did on a crazy rich. Asia's was everyone is so respectful. My parents they were only can help you like do you need anything. Ronnie chain was being so cool about it and everything so they loved it and they get experienced ground up now. You know I feel like you know. I'm in Grade School. And like they know all my friends they ask me. How's Ronnie doing so in so doing so? That was really sweet. Shop will be Fantasy Island Fiji. I flew mound. Also out for a week can hang out Yes so so now. Now they get it. It's fine you know. I think the initial worry Erin. Not that they don't want happy not the one meter or studio arts it. Just worry that I'm gonNA be fucking homeless. And now they have to be any. It's a safe worry. I mean every one of us it was a roll the dice for all of us. Yeah and who would have predicted when you started? Oh just a you know. There's going to be a lot more representation in like five year. Tenure because I think Asian kids rolling up myself included. It's like what the fuck you talking about doing. Stand were acting. There's two out of billing people there to you. Say You'RE GONNA fuck make it go by the lottery you know. What does someone just made a joke? It pels Chapelle mark. Twain's rose did you see that. They go when they go. When Dave chapelle started they only allowed one black person to be famous at a time unlike now where they allow three exactly. If you forget you forget what it's like to be you forget. Sometimes you're a white guy that's all it's like you forget your white guy and sometimes you'll say things like I'll give you a perfect example When when Fucking was his name got yoked and ripped Camille got ripped and I was like I remember I as a comic. I have a weird thing about body image about like I duNNo. I think as I think I've dealt with it in my career like you'll call me fat and then me trying to lose weight and then me getting frustrating knowing anymore on can lose weight. I don't WanNa be ramped and then come out ripped and pardon me initially was like Goddamn and like we. We lost a good one. He was he was one of us. You know like one of the guys who made fun of the guy that got ripped then one day. I'm sitting I'm taking shit. I'm reading the article in command on the cover of men's health or something like that and I read about representation and I and I realized Kumail had to do that. Because he doesn't want some young Pakistani kid to see him just as the guy going The lines free try it now. Like EAC move. He should be fucking little young kids like him growing up. Look and go. I can be fucking Chris Hemsworth. Not Just Chris Hemsworth looking kids they get to be that kid and that's exactly that's what's special. Because he wasn't born Chris Hemsworth. He became Chris. Hemsworth which is awesome. Because if he's a Brat and say there's an Asian Brad Pitt a Henry Golding or something right and we look at them or the young kids. That look normal like me. We all okay. He made it because he's super good. Look I'm not saying this Henry's amaze but it's not realistic for me Kumail as a regular mail. And then he got check. I think that's what's special about this did you did you did you. Did a stint on two broke. Girls are walk on. Did you meet Whitney when when you're there I never did? I met windy later. way later but I had a line part and that was my first job. That's my sidecar really. Yeah I always wonder like what? I'm the kind of guy that if I'd done that and I ran into Whitney later out of just you know. My first thing was two broke girls on girls so I used to do that with people but then I realized why put myself in that position so the berm will be the opening. Act On that yes so. Let's talk a little bit about that Vince. Vaughn produced it right and Vincent Super Nice. He came came up to set one day. He's like Y'all I think. Go to great job. We're so lucky and happy to have you. You know playing the lead of this movie in like I was so fucking excited anyways now. The thing is my second job was in a movie. Called the internship with Vince. Vaughn and Owen Wilson and I had one line I think maybe mannered playing Ping Pong with bits is just a one day day player thing. No Way Vince. Whatever remembered it might roll cut anyways and I don't think I was saying my lines right just shit so now. I had an opportunity. Ten did five years later seeing bins and believed in the Bogey. That he's producing. I could have been like Vince. You know what man one of my first jobs was played ping pong but why put myself in that situation you know. Let them just be happy that I'm the leader of his movie. Instead of we hire this day player guy like Ping Pong. Oh Man I'm not mad at sex I'm like let's not even put myself no so interesting. I'm such a fucking. I'm such a guy that I want to connect the to connect the pieces and so I always want someone to know I was the guy I remember saying someone. I remember saying to an executive one time so good that we to find the meat. I said we met before and then like really like you came to a comedy club. I was working the door and you lost a scarf and I said to you. I just had stepped on a scarf. And you've got really upset and she was like. Oh Yeah my scarves ruined and I was like I was me. Ask remember going like what the fuck. Why would you tell me that? I don't think before I talk. Sometimes I will just start speaking and go. Yeah I really fucked up Endearing about you and everything right like that's cool. I did that once not once. I've done this many times. Like second person but one time. I do specifically remember Mike. Judge was my commencement speaker. The ST and first of table rate of Silicon Valley never met him. He didn't hire me because I want to. Ucsd's completely dumb luck. And I was like a man. You're my commencement speaker. Man and I was hoping in the back of my mind. You make up these scenarios that Michael. Shake my hand hug me. Wow Son how was that? How Special. Utah have made it now on my show after five years so I was hoping Speech and then all Mike Center who was just very Mike Judge but we were very close friends. But that's just his demeanor. I always thought that was such an opposite of what I thought. The best case scenario would might judges hit it out of the park every time. He's done something gene guys. None so fricking chill. Have you ever hung out with him? Because he's good friends with Henry. Phillips ALWAYS HANG UP IMPROV. In the comedy store and revolt were human beings alive yet is awesome right. Michaelov stand up and whenever I hang out with him. Chile's doesn't think he's Mike Judge like truly one time at disbarring Santa Monica. We walked in and gave us like a seat that they save for him and we all sat down. Give free drinks and Mike. I just remember turned to me has started coming here. I don't know why but they just been like really nice to me. I'm like yeah. 'cause you fucking Mike my Judge What do you mean? Of course. They're nineteen ninety two but he just has a very nice connect with colleagues consider he just under regular back yet. I have a buddy. Who's working with them right now? And and he brought him up and he was like the fucking realist. Most regular dude ever. I was like really. He's like spotlights. Yeah that's awesome to hear when you hear that about people you know like that the regular and they're cool and it's so funny. I think I am. Probably what are they? What people would like to hear about someone? I'm really regular really cool. Pretty grounded but I always feel insecure about that. I wish I was more of a standoffish. Like like I wish I was more of like of like what I see that successful you ever see someone successful and then go home right. But that's not the byproduct it's not because they're staying office. That's why the successful right and for you. You're definitely like Super Likable approachable guy. I remember in San Diego with did that. Kabul festival I was so embarrassed because I was like five or my college buddies. And they've mobbed you. They like per picture and then they start quoting his up and I was just like guys. You guys a completely embarrassing me but you. I'm sure a bit of you. Were maybe like Lee low with the southeast but you were so nice in cracking a beer drinking with these guys are just being chill as and I think that's definitely a great appeal. You know I think I I can't help it like if I see today. Some guy did Did like a producer wrap of the machine like He. He did a rap like a seven minute rap. I'm really into hip hop but I was like. I thought how cool like by the way I guess. Some people probably wouldn't notice it or wouldn't take the time to listen to the whole thing but I listened to it and I was like kind of moved. I was like how cool. It's a cool song. Guys got good but like he did the whole story and he wraps it and I'm still impressed by that like when people do Photoshop of me I go. Someone cares enough to do that. That kind of blows me away a little bit because you know I. I think I'm very lucky for whatever reason to have found success a little later in my career. I've always had some success. I've always been very very lucky. I've always made money in this business but to be where I'm at now at the age I'm at. I think it really gives me perspective like if I was your age if I was your age and I was doing open mic and I saw you blow up I might have. I mean I guess it didn't happen to me so I wouldn't wouldn't have happened but I'm saying I can empathize with the kids who are jaded and young and not succeeding. I can empathize with kids at blow up when they're young. I can empathize with guys. That are my agents. Still not making it happen. I can all so I feel like I've gotten to experience all spectrums of this business a little story and I think it's like battering guys like you like Tom. Like like mark that I respect so much because he spent through the thick of it yet. You're still open to the younger generation. 'cause a lot of older people like fuck you. I'm in an accomplished storm. Fifteen years the fuck this get thank you guys have the opposite of that. So welcoming of the younger generation like me. So what was the experience working with? Like Steve Bernard known. Steve Steve's one of my close friends I've known him as long as I've been in the business and And so tell me about the movie. I'm sue. I'm super excited. And you also have a space for coming out right. Yeah Yeah Yeah. By the way I saw the trailer that I just interviewed Ben Schwartz. Oh the best. So I'm going to a little bit of a bench Schwartz Obsession right now. He is one of my favorite Improv actors. To Watch the SEAL SMART I think he is the best improviser professional life stage out there. Hennion Thomas Amazingly talented a may have worked with Tomasson Sonali your your your book. Tell me I wanNA talk about space. Works by really. Want to talk about obviously Love Steve. Like brothers. The movie was called the Act Peter Billingsley and bins one produced in Steve Roden directed it which is super impressive for comic and he always has that drive. You know to do more to other stuff as always work. So Yeah we the approach me you know. I think you could be ranked play this. Kinda lead part in this because it's about a guy that's like an open Mike Making his way through and he gets a call from a legit improper to open for his hero so he gets his first road. Gig In the oval takes place in one weekend Thursday when he gets the call. Hits the drive out to the club a Friday. What happens this Saturday? Drunken this and the Sunday of leaving the club. So it's extremely Extreme look in the back workings of a Comedy Club you know and I think it Comedians GonNa love it and every comedian was in the movie like Whitney Russell Peers Tom Was the movie he gets punched in the face. Steve Steve left a couple of comics. Out Myself fucking asshole. When those did you want to know Stephen I swear to God i swear to you Jimmy. I'm not lying at all. He calls me and he goes burt as he goes. I got this great movie. I'm doing and I don't know if you've heard about An said. No no and he goes on. I got this great like role for a cop and I wanted to call you and see if you got cigars number and by the way and buses balls about but it's a testament to how good of friends we are. Is that Steve's brain. He didn't think at all and I didn't think it all. It's as a joke now but he just thought you know a bird. I'll die. It's my friend. I'M GONNA call. I need cigarettes number. I want to play the role. I busted his ass so many times on fucking interviews fogcast. I will never let that go. That's hilarious but yeah but yes. The girl played a racist cop which I think is perfect because cigarettes like legit racist What am I just frozen on zoom and I was like yeah stayed? Should we talk about something along the production? It was nineteen days I shot. I was in every single scene twelve hours a day. It was exhausted. A. Like my first lead role you know But it was extremely rewarding because I came up with this realm. I know the first phone call was like the open for someone and what a Friday night parting light. But you gotta be ready to Saturday and then Saturday you wake up your feature wants to go to a museum or some shit or you know you come back to the condo in the features Bain. Some you know a groupie all that stuff. It's so real. And Steve is the ultimate road dog and I say that Most obstinate way so he knows all the inner work so I think any stand up comedy fans that want earn more about stand up. It's GonNa find like the most truthful made by comedian. Vervet real stand a movie and I hope I mean hasn't come out yet I think it finally finished at it and they're going to shop it around. Maybe it'll come out since can't do it. The actual release maybe bidding on man. Maybe I don't know yeah. Hopefully hopefully guys get a theatrical release and lease up by then. I think that'd be really cool I would love to have. I would love to when I hope my goal with with the movie has been to bring everyone here all the cast had have cocktails into a podcast to promote it and Ben. What we're we're building a new podcast studio so hopefully you know everything. When things are Goddamn and I'm getting like fucking old I feel like I'm talking stuttering these days Hopefully the new studio B bill. We can do like a big drinking podcast at you. Tom Billy Gardell zone billy gardell in it now. Cedric entertainers in it. John's in it near Brand Bill Burr. Just did a scene of bill this morning On Zoom announced. Yeah Yeah I've a show won't show on Netflix. Coming out in a little while and And we needed to do the pick ups for it but because all the pickups are not you can't do anything we're doing them via facetime calls so we at a certain way and we do it on Zoom we do the audio the acting through zoom but we film in a certain way and Bill fucking. Mur like you know. I've known bill forever. We do a podcast together but To him acting it's different things at different muscle. Yeah absolutely but he's got he's Club. How much improving do you feel like you do when you're acting or wants to stick to a script defense? If they let me if they let me I'll go principles like certain seasons. Silicon Valley or lose time Like Steve's moby because the schedule so tight I get the improper whenever I could like after we got a shot in the CAN Ask like maybe okay. Let me let me give one then. But you feel bad asking because if we don't make the day than we're so it all depends on what it is who the director is The the tone of the show like For example I'M GONNA make smooth transition here on space force on the first season. The first season of space floors I mean Steve. Chorale is the master John. Malkovich is the Master Bench. Shorts master right so of course you want to do some Improv. But there were a lot of cameras setups as you him. A trailer shot brilliant beauty for as a voice even through the shots right so so we did a lot of the We let the DP his saying. Have some great shots. But we didn't do as much improv. So there is a tradeoff and now we're talking about if we could do a second season we want since we established a visual already. Now we know what to do might be less time between setups. Let's play around you know especially TV. It's always like a moving thing. So commanding same thing. Some directors will let you improper more some directors. Just want to shoot it and go home. Was the the trailer for Space Force? Just came out and so for people who haven't seen it. What is the premise? It's a it's a. It's a three-star five star general right. It gets over to yeah. It gets an assignment to run the new military branch which is a real branch now the US Space Force. It's the first military brand thinking like sixty seventy years and it's very interesting because our timelines almost happening at the same time our shows about to come out and when we shot it they. Of course they announced space forrester getting the new recruits and we finished shooting in two months ago. They just the real space for us just at their new group recruits. And there's always little news coming out and I think two days ago there was a press conference. It was livestream so this public knowledge will ask you. The real space for cheats. This guy General who is a four STAR General John? Raymond thing what did he think about the our space force trailer and just jokingly he was like oh As far as I thought Bruce Willis was gonNA play me. And but you know what I'll be okay when Steve Corral So they are acknowledging it in. I mean he's joking saying yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah but he acknowledging it in like taking it in a way and I'm if people want to see themselves portrayed on TV it's very interesting show Ronin Kinda with our imagination mixed would real news but in a parallel universe. And it's really just an office comedy. I WANNA say it's the office it's not. It's shot very differently. Shot very cinematic Louis. But it's workplace comedy that's very very high stakes. That's fucking awesome. How how have you been with creativity over this pandemic? Have you been writing have you? I've been less than creative. I would say although I've been more than productive if that makes him interesting so you spend more time but you're hitting writer's block or something so I know writer's block I just I really stand up for me is done mostly on stage right a lot on stage so I can take and I think it's also Fight or flight like I will take the stuff that happened to me in the day and then bring it on stage that night and then through that. I will find the stuff that I love. I've written a bunch of great premises. I have a Where I just go. I just need to get them on stage but for the most part. I started writing the script with me Tom Tom. It was like an idea we kicked around and I have a five projects that I'm working on like I'm being very productive but I don't feel like like when this started. I was like I'm going to get all my shit done. Got Time. Were this is where when this comes out. Sell this this and this and maybe I will but maybe it's just not coming out the way I wanted if that makes sense and and I feel like I'm I'm doing you know I do too. Bears won't cave every week. I do Bill Bert. Every week I do about four podcasts. A Week I'm doubling down on releasing podcasts. But like like A. But I'm I care a lot more about the podcasts and I used to impersonate never fuck second but on on on a zoom. I know that Kinda of need to be a little more research. It's not as easy as a conversation interesting. So like with Ben Schwartz. I ended up spending a whole night just deep diving Ben and listen watching almost everything he's ever done and then becoming obsessed with fucking Jake and Amir I like. I don't know why Obsessive Jake and Amir. It's a show that even like doing anymore like yeah and so you're easy. I mean you were very easy just because I already did my deep dive on you when I heard that I was just like I gotta find a find everything out about this guy thanks But but yeah I've some for some people. I think it's a little more work. So but yeah. How have you been with creativity on the standard thing? I shot my special last December. And it's coming out tomorrow so excited about that but I was already not doing standup like I was already taken a break until I can just have an inkling of stuff that I want to talk about again. Search forcing myself back on stage. So that wasn't a problem But I have a couple of scripts that kind of fallen behind a script. That only have a deal on and a couple of ideas that I always meant to do. I never had the chance to do so now. I do find myself having some time to do it. Just awesome and actually there's this writer's room that I joined by Zoom Writer's room two hours a day and it's super productive and it feels like a real sense of work and I'm sure the same way would you just trusting so you join the writers room in that and you guys all just kick around your own ideas. He has pretty call. And it's just five of us and yet we just shoot should run on ideas talk about the season of this show that may or may not come and We'll see what happens but it's it's an interesting exercise in makes me feel like I'm going to work everyday even just going into my office and zooming gives me a sense of purpose instead of the feeling of just meandering for two months. That's been extremely healthy and productive. Were or you're married no no girlfriend. No I actually. This is the worst decision ever at broke up with a girl right before the pandemic. That's gotta be the worst at anyone could ever met uses l- either that or the greatest decision like I. I can't imagine I I'm glass half full kind of guy so like I look at everything as a positive and so. I can't imagine being with the insufferable women I've dated into my past and being with them. I keep saying to my wife. I am so lucky I love you like. I'm so lucky that and I kept going. You're lucky that I love you like everyone's lucky that I love you. 'cause I'm not like they just had me my daughters. My wife just corralled me into a bedroom and I was crying and they were bullying the three of them. Were bullying me in the funniest way they had and I was crying laughing and I thought to myself that. I'm so lucky that I'm enjoy these people because even like extremely sweet statement. I'm lucky that I love you. There's something there's so much to that I think of your. It sounds like a selfish statement. You're talking about yourself. But it's I'm extremely Arcelor's Jimmy. This an extremely selfless and loving saying. I am lucky to kind of have somebody. I Love I love. It's great. I love this should be long mainland. Tv show. I'm lucky I love you muck it really speaks so much like there is some narcissism. But it's not it's really loving thinking about it. Yeah Nice so so. So what's your prediction? When do you think this is going to end? It's tough man I think while they're saying the strongest working the Mirror and hopefully best case scenario that might be a back in September. My thing is with our jobs especially with standups to stand up. Start Road Sunday to feed their family. I saw the worst for them. Stand going to be lasting. That opens up like stand up comedy clubs just like sporting events blah blah. I hope people can be safe and go outside soon. But it's going to be a wild Many August I mean total disclaimer. I'm not a scientist Alamos. Shit I'm talking about but I think hopefully August will be pretty good for people to start trickling outside and maybe by like September October. GonNa go backwards shooting. Tv shows with Barry Cautious. Measures may be less extra or something but when it comes to live performances in a small room with two hundred fifty people. I don't know well to be honest. I don't know average that was ever safe the CDC to Krant two hundred fifty people in a small basin. So I don't know does are you? Are you bummed that you can't tour to support the new special? It's fine I. She didn't plan on touring to support. It was money to be made. I would do it but It's there's so much other stuff like. I felt like I check this off this hour. Special extremely Tweet ten years to worth a shot at the Neptune in Seattle. A what a great computer so fun and I went there to scout might director in made them put a stare at decided on all the colors. WanNa wear with. I love that whole process and edited every moment of it and Almost drove myself crazy Looking at myself. Eight hours audit. It's thought it fucks with your head like it really fucks with your head I have. Yeah Yeah I know that but you know what I think. I'm very proud of it and Something hopefully people enjoy and deals. Yes called good deals on Amazon prime starting tomorrow. May Tomorrow Man. Is this coming out today this week? And put this out whenever you want it to come out. Why won't put it out today? I'll make sure that I'll do it next week. So people can grab the special. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Whatever works for you. man. I'm excited about it. But you know that's one thing that always wanted to do at did. I no rush in doing another one And that's speaking from very first world privilege physician because my money doesn't depend on standup alone. I could be like I want to get into more writing. That's joined US writer's room. I'm excited to learn about Writings from these great guys. And then I'm also Writing model with scripts and stuff when I start wanted to do so. My whole content like a very satisfied with doing space force. Hopefully we'll have more seasons to come. We don't know and If I can just do that act that will pay my bills And I'll be very creatively satisfied and have off time have outspend writing and when I feel like an uncle back to doing stand. It's beautiful that that you know. There used to be such lines drawn in the sand and I think because there weren't opportunities for everyone in every capacity the way there is with the Internet but when I started there like Oh you just want to be an actor or oh you just want to be a writer or oh you just want to do. The road work comic. I live in New York. Now it's gotten so it's so nice to see it kind of open up and people go. No No. I love stand up like a really loved this TV show on working on and would mind writing. I wouldn't mind going into like you. Look at someone like Steve Byrne and you go. Wow I've he's an amazingly accomplished and up I think more specials definitely more special than I have He's got. He's a sitcom sold a second run. A Sitcom made the movie directed a movie. Shot a movie acts I mean he does? He does everything. It's it's really nice that this and I think it's because of the Internet allowed a lot of people more opportunities to who with this you know like yeah and nobody better to do everything then. Stand up 'cause we appreciate the opportunity. We knew how it was when we're doing open mics and we could barely put together our rent so now when anyone stolen money we're like oh discovery channel. You want me to do the show. Yeah sure you to ice cream for you sure it because you look back in those days when you making no money you appreciate the hustle. Man You know that's always thank you. Tell HIM UP. Bill like acting you acting the acting every moment. I think step one set. We couldn't believe what giving us money this and compare like stand up. This is a train so I think we always show up on time card. I said that to someone the other day I said Forget Anthony Anderson Anthony. Anderson came on set for our now. My netflix are my Netflix Show. And he murdered it. I mean he murdered it from the second. He started until the he was available. He was there he didn't leave. He didn't ask what time they were getting now. He just was there and he killed it yet energy he was interested. He was engaged in new. When Said Hey? Can you do that again? Did it again? Like I said to him was like man. I'm I'm like really impressed and I came from the school of like and I had. We've seen a lot of this celebrities. Come in they're asked to do a job and they're like the fact that I'm here should be enough for you like I gotTa Get. Outta here soon and I was like I said to Anthony. I'm like dude I I really am. Thank you really made this episode Supernatural News. Like that was my intention. I wanted to come in and I wanted to deliver and you were like I was like. Oh that's right you hire me something I come in and I deliver. I show up ready sober fuck in sweated it out in the morning. I'm ready like fuck in what I think. People assume a stand up with joe up half hung over fucking smoking a cigarette like what Bach drive time? Take a shit you know like though up in it. Yeah I think that's stand at some of the most talented But there's so many people also on the flip side of that is extremely talented ten times. Funnier than I am. I think but never made it. Because they couldn't get their shit together so it's not the lack of talent and when you do find Santa's professional usually you know they make your level Steve's level in level in every brother I am so excited for your success. I'm so it's so much fun to watch. You really are like you brought a huge smile on my face when you shut when you showed up on screen and craisins and whatever for whatever that means I I.

Thanks chicken and golf on both vegetables for the big campaign. Cool Keeney Beautiful Oud. Welcome to green eggs and Dan the show where I interview amazing humans with amazing minds but all I care about is what is in their fridge. I'm very excited about my guests. Jimmy Yang is a writer. Actor comedian He's been on Silicon Valley crazy rich. Asians his book is how to American. And he's going to be in the upcoming Steve Carell Vehicle Space Force space for the Tawny newsome friend of the show the best best welcome Jimmy. Hello Dan along with all those credits. You are an avid foodie avid. A world traveling foodie absolutely man after my own heart. I didn't realize it until we follow each other on the Graham and I was like. Oh Okay I see you see you man before we get to all the world traveling and all that we are going to go through your fridge. Of course Jimmy sent a bunch of fridge pictures which you can check out on my instagram at. Stand up Dan. Let's get right to it first of all this at all really organized fridge. I try to you know. Have the drinks ready so I I wanNA feel like whatever I opened my fridge? It's like MTV cribs. You know what I mean I mean it looks like the labels are all pointed in the right direction. I love it okay. So then we have some fun ingredients going on. You've got the The canned green tea always fun. Always always festive. You know the most important ingredient in any Asian guys kitchen is a rice. Leftover Rice was that. What is your does that bowl in the second wrote leftover rice. Yeah and then you just reheated in the in the microwave either reheat it or leftover rice is the best for cooking fried rice. Yes you actually want it to be in the fridge because then it takes all the moisture out exactly and then he has a nice crackle when you throw it in there. You made a lot of fried rice I do. But now I've been making a lot of Japanese rice bowls. Okay a guild on like Jaka dawn and stuff like that super easy to make and it's delicious absolutely Japanese Pantry is very are you. Are you more into Japanese food than Chinese food? I am now. I guess just for the moment I mean. I grew up eating Chinese so I'm still supernet Chinese But there's I feel like around my neighborhood in West Hollywood this better Japanese options than Chinese And it Japanese options is just easier to make a one man meal like a one bowl meal yes. There's Chinese food is more of an operation. Yeah absolutely you gotta you gotTa get the duck you got to separate the skin from the duck. I actually ordered air pressure as things so that I can separate the skin from the ducks picking duck. Oh you may picking ducati house oven. No I have traeger grill which is like a wood-fire Pellet Grill. Oh my God so you get the actual smoke on it. That's amazing it's it didn't come out that great. I think I know what I fucked up. I can't get enough moisture out of the duck. You gotta make it Super Dry before you crisp the skin. While I don't go that I know my limits I just I make the stuff that you could make an kitchen. I don't try to buy extra equipment or whatever the only thing I have is like a sous vide okay and that's that's pretty advanced people would think but but it's like the one of the easiest things to do. Most of those things are listened when I take my air pressure. Hose and stick it in the neck of the duck. That's pretty. What are your whole duck in the Chinese? Weren't you can get it a whole foods. I boosted up and got one from wholefoods Mary's watches at Mary's mixing. Expensive fucking duck. I bet but I wonder I think the ones that the Chinese marketer probably would probably be better for taking may be I don't like it doesn't have the head on head on creepy factor. Yeah for sure because and and also. I don't know why Americans got so freaked out when a post like a plate of chicken from Chinese restaurant. The head is on the floor. They're they're people eat that like my grandmother loves that kind of stuff dude. I consider me your grandmother. Hey I'm into that stuff too. Although there was one thing I went to Chinese restaurant recently. That had duck tongues. Oh you ever had. I did like the fried. It's a whole planet. Yes exactly. That's delicious it was super cartilage and this is way more cartilage than I thought it was going to be. Is that a word cardell address. It is now it is on this podcast. Nice Nice are you into the cartilage cartilage in his flavors. I was a kid I mean. I grew up in dim sum in Hong Kong so I love chicken feet. I'll shoot down you know. Yeah but now as I grow up I guess I understand what it is so I eat less of it. I'm still very opened. I love all the innards of like cows and stuff like tripe and things. Oh Yeah Liver I love. I love a good liver fry. I feel like the older we get the more I become bored with like basic flavors like a filet or whatever and I think that that's when you start going to the Oregon and stuff because you're like. Oh this is exciting. Yeah this before or different types of cuisine. I guess I was by chicken thighs. I think that's the way more versatile than chicken breast and I never just kinda grill it up. You know pan-fried or whatever I try to you know maybe men sit to make like a Thai dish or or you know chop it up to make some Japanese curry or something. And there's so much you can do with just some basic ingredients you really you know like if you have the right sauces. You can make any type of cuisine. I didn't know that you were as much of a home cook as you are Jim recently I I really enjoy it. I think know it's funny. You know very blessed like being able to act and stuff but then whenever I show up on set I look at the caterers. I'm like man that's what I WANNA do. I'll quit acting to cater the set right now. It's so fun it just it's a very physical activity. It's very primal. You're feeding people you feel loved. You know it's great. Oh my God. So that's your passion your day job man being on on the most celebrated television shows of our generation but your passion is doing the catering. Yeah Yeah Yeh you know. Silicon Valley pays the bills so can cook caregivers gradients from whole foods. What how was the catering? I'm Silicon Valley. Really good really good. What great crafty also every three hours or so. We have snacks like wings and stuff. So he's so. Oh I got really fat because I think between one and two. I became a series regular. That's when you start making some money or did you start as a as a recurring as a guest or Nyman recurrent get Outta here. Maybe a co star literally two lines. Wow Yeah you had to declare way up. Yeah I love that and it just kind of worked down the season two we found a dynamic between me and Tj and that you know got the ball rolling then even after you left you know there was enough of my character to do So I've been really fortunate with that show And that was definitely like my big break. You know But between season one too when it got my raise I. I was driving Uber season. One Bro get the fuck out hero. Yeah Ida two thousand six and then I just started eating so much because I could finally Ford to go eat out whole on before we go on. Did anyone recognize you? When you're overdriving? No no it was it was. I had like maybe three episodes in late. Five lines you know and So by season two I was eating Tatsu Rahman every day. Oh Nice Tatsu is a rahman join in. La We asked. There's a couple them. It's like the Ness Bresso of Rahman it's like. Okay hindsight. I love their chicken. Rahman it's very good but the line. It's so over hyped now almost. Don't WanNa talk about them. It's crazy line is crazy and I but the thing is I usually go there after my sets at like one or two. Am and they open that late. Which is great but now even like two. Am there's a line? Wow Yeah yeah. And they have all automated and computerized and fun like that version there's way bad rahman Rahman in La. What's your favorite arm I just discovered this place that has been blowing my mind downtown. It's called Racan. Art K N and actually they have a second outpost in Tokyo Tokyo and fucking Tokyo Tokyo and skid row are there to accept as. Oh so good what? Kinda show you. I'll show you is what is so. I feel like an America coat. Rahman is what you see everywhere. Because it's very fatty and pork thick. It's like almost creamy color. Yeah and I feel like it's American. Flavors are way more into that whereas in Japan. I don't know if you when you were in Tokyo. You were just in Tokyo most place. I went to were show you which is soy based on which is a lot lighter like you can have that bullet. Rahman and you can go and absolutely or psycho back broth. You don't need a nap or it's a Dashi broth like a fish based broth yeah. It's a lot clearer and cleaner now. Sometimes I find myself even tattoo instead of ordering like the thick pork. Rahman I just order like the vegetarian option. Dashi Broth is really clear. It's clean and it's easy and it's easy and like you said you can go do set after whatever right but having said that I think pound for pound my favorite is Sajida annex which is the hardest the hardest Rama you can get. It's called Jero Style Rahman and it is basically made for like Japanese truck drivers. We're going to get like one meal a day. It's the noodles are thicker. They're SORTA like Bucatini like a- and the broth is just like pork back fat. Dude it is. It's Dick as Hell Stillie. How good this is. It's Superman. No no it it's called Euro Style and I think it's because they use the back fat in it so it's like almost like a half an inch of just like liquid fat. Aw I think it's impossible to finish. I've never finished it. I'll finish the noodles and then I'll have like half of the broth and then I take the rest home by more noodles and I can make a tumour Rahman's what scares me whenever I freeze leftover noodles or leftover broth. Because you can't really put in the fridge to it the noodles he goes to shit. Yeah but if you put in the fridge and then the brought the next day congeals and you're like this is what I'm eating this meat. Jelly no wonder gained fifteen pounds. It's all it's like solid at room temperature. It's kind of gross. It's Kinda Gross. The clear broth is a little better. My favorite way to go I got to say is Sent Toco inside the Missouri and Mar Vista said took around. It's actually from Tokyo. Couple locations there okay and they just have a great shooter Ramen. Just everything I think. It's a pork and chicken. Base is still a little thick but the salt version of It is amazing. That's the one that is In that supermarket yes. Okay yeah that places delicious. So did you know that Rahman who comes to us from the Chinese yeah. Yeah it's a initially. I think it was called like La men. Young lion nominees like pulled noodles. Rare right Would you prefer I do like the Japanese version a little more but I do love a good like just one on noodle soup from Hong Kong? Yeah those kind of more Shanghainese Style. noodle soups from like think long and like tasty noodle house like that is. That's where I grew up with but I think it's legit right. It's good it's It's pretty Chinese like in a way. That like the portions of two thousand four. I'm going for pretty tiny. Yeah the portions are too big sometimes like things iphones a little more subtle like you don't feel one hundred pounds afterwards. So didn't iphone. There's two of them. I think that's probably the most popular dumpling. Join there's a few now in our side of town there's one in the Westfield Mall Incentive City there's one in Glendale but there's a couple on the east side like Hamrin stone you know we're GonNa take a break but stay tuned for more.

Listen to the Michaud mission on Apple podcasts. Spotify stitcher today new episodes every Wednesday back to Jimmy o Yang. What is I feel like? Chinese cuisine is a blind spot for me. Like I don't know enough. I think it's also one of those things that when I learn a little bit about it I realized how much I don't know. Let me be guide please okay. It's so complicated. Because there's I I think six maybe country to country and they're six major pillar of Chinese cuisine. I don't really know all of them. But there's Shanghainese Cantonese Szechuan and Bay the northern Beijing and then a few other Hunan and stuff like that so I grew up in Hong Kong which is candies food so dim sum at lunch and Brunch And then at night. It's a you know a seafood. Based that's when you see all the fish tanks and it's Chinese so it's great seafood and it's delicious okay And then the Shanghainese food. It's kind of like tasting noodle house and phones a Taiwanese joint but it's Shanghainese inspire so shallow bowel So the LASAGNA Baldi. The thick Ou- like spongy. It depends the bows could be. Attachable is a dim sum item in Cantonese cuisine. Okay but the thick Pan Five. Brab pan-fried bows. That's a shanty street. Food Okay. So Shanghainese Cantonese us a lot more alkaline noodles like the Yellow Ish want on thin noodles. Shanghainese US more flour based noodles? Okay so the white noodles he see and think Thai food and stuff like that alkaline noodles what they use an enrollment as well which can can withstand any amount of heat they can keep keep them boil exactly twenty minutes and they are overcook it. Yeah A has better. Chew was flour noodles little more delicate but it has good mouth feel to it You know interesting so far. I wonder who so Chinese probably came up with flour noodles before the Italians did talion got pasta from China. Yeah Chinese I would like to think it's probably the first noodles yeah And my dad always told me this. It's interesting you go to northern China. Shanghai will be in the middle. We'll be kind of like the cutoff point. Anything north of Beijing and stuff w more than China south of it will be Hong Kong and stuff. That's canton you know that. That part of China so south China people eat more rice okay The weather's better for growing rice interesting. Where northern China people eat more flour products so now you see him. Beijing's tunnel dumplings and stuff because that's what it grow like a flower. It's easier to grow up there and less rice now interesting. Yes so northern China. There's less water. 'cause rice takes a shit underwater. It's colder up there. I guess so. Maybe that's why I'm not really sure of the science And then you get to like Szechuan which is like the spicy. The mouth numbing the Szechuan peppers about. Did they get so nuts about these peppers? I love it but sometimes it gets too much. It's a little bit like a roller coaster. Ride for it is it's going. I love going into restaurant Sometimes that's not not just a meal like an adventure like Yeah it's activity like a hot pot like Korean barbecue. You get to hear it. It's a thing right And then Szechuan. I feel the same way like you feel like a rush of endorphins on food. And you've never had pepper corns. They're basically they numb your mouth. They literally will numb your mouth and they kind of changed the flavor of everything and everything tastes fucking weird. And it's like yeah. It was a legal up until a couple of years ago in the states. No way really. Yeah get Outta here. I guess like annoying thing that you can use to. I literally get high kind of and literally you do get high when you eat some so spicy. Yeah and like it released yet. It doesn't release endorphins. Yeah think so. That is wild. Chinese Haapala fucks me up because I always forget that as it's on your evaporating water so it's just going to get hotter. You gotTa work concentrated on working the airport broth halfway and let it re- boil. Oh really oh there for too long I just wait till Tunitas hot slurry and then I can't fuck in that field for a couple of days so one of the grey shabu places I gotta shout out to Bond Shabu. It's in Koreatown all you can eat They have like Chinese Bay Broth or Korean swoopes. Whatever really versatile and What they do is at the end when you shit is boiled down and all the flavors in that little thick broth on the bottom of your hot pot. They come in and they make a rice porridge. The poor rice little see we little egg. Mix It all in. Cook it down and it's one of the best rice porridge. Wow you got all the flavor in it. How cool everything he worked for all night. It's in there. Yeah do you. Are you a fan of of Chinese duck? Whether it's taking or using I like it. I don't need to eat it every day. I like it. I think it's probably my favorite duck that I okay. Duck is one of my favorite foods. Yeah and that fucking crispy skin man who is delicious. Yeah so That's guess not very often Chinese few. He'd picking up. You're not that I thought we were going to bond on it and now I like it. I feel good. I feel like a loan on this on this island. Duck Island. It's like eating. I Dunno like lobster like it's delicious but it's not like Americans or Australians lobster. Every day it's like a luxury thing that you get every now and then and it's great but I mean I'm not like a boy king eating duck every night. I'm just thing it's my thing. I don't like the Chinese food that you can mix the sauce with the rice and stuff like that. Yeah you know. There's like a sauce to my fate. My favorite duck is the. I don't know actually how to say it in but in Cantonese it's a low sewing up. Okay low so it's this kind of like brace broth. I don't know how exactly make it. It's a little sweet little aromatic and the The duck is bald in it. So it's a to a certain region that's near the Canton region. So it's it's kind of like almost like street food. They just have low so it like distinct in Japan. You know all these skewers and seven eleven. It's dipped in that like broth. Yes so it's Kinda like that. But the Chinese version of it. They have dock. They have eggs. They have like little slices of different things. And it's one of the best things ever. Wow It's a great song mixed with you right. Is there a personality that has I'm sure on the east side? You can find it. Yeah it's very popular in Hong Kong but it's one of those very specific things And also duck years notice. It's not right. It's not right that it's like the chicken here. It's not right. It's different types of chicken. You GotTa go to Chinese stores to get like the yellow skin chicken. Yeah it's much smaller. It's not steroid it you know. Yeah so same thing with the DOC. And a lot of a lot lot of candies. I think I'm translated right. So there's which is duck and then more. Which is I think crane or Swan. Okay I mean it sounds terrible to eat them but whatever it saying. Why didn't I fuck up a poultry and I'll chew on its long legs delicious? It's like yeah it's a better version of a duck. Is it really? Yeah no way. That's a little fattier little more tenders. Wow How beautiful can you get that in in the US or they did Lido fucking loser? Shit I mean maybe if you're going to Chinese grocery store maybe could or maybe it's a bad thing I'm not. Wow Yeah I can't. I never thought I needed crane and now I don't know how to live with a crane or swan. Whatever the translation is. I'm not really sure. We'll swan is a lot like goosen. Goose is maybe it's goose. I don't know man I don't know what more translates to But yeah I still WanNa eat a swan though. I don't care if I'm not sure all fucking the same you find that there was any British influence in the food in Hong Kong. Yes so There's a type of cuisine in Hong Kong called kind of western Cantonese. Okay so there's a lot of cafes of that it's called Gong six sites sites which means Cantonese style western food so they have like Fried fillets but then you put mayonnaise on it but then decided rice vegetable soup and stuff like that but with low Hong Kong twist Cheese toews was shrimp. And stuff like that and it's delicious. Yeah you can find that definitely In like one of those cafes in Monterey Park like the ABC Cafe Cafe Yeah it's it's funny. I think British food on its own can be pretty bland and stupid like whenever they colonized somewhere and they throw their little flare into the local food like chicken Tikka Masala is like completely a British invention right now like Indian. They were just like this needs a little more cream and they just like an added a bunch of cream so chicken Tikka Masala chicken curry would cream and like its tomatoes lettuce tomato base with cream so it was. It was just too like appeal to white people tastebuds and it's fucking delicious. I mean but it's definitely like it's a British invention has actually. I think the first chickens give us all was served in London. It wasn't even like served in it was like the immigrants who came over to England. Wow made it with with like British people what does Tika Marsala mean. Does that mean something? I have no idea do. Don't have it call me on. I don't know I don't know I'm asking no idea like if that's like a British made up word cut this out. Masala is Masala completely not knowing but Masala might be because I've seen Masala on a bunch of different things so maybe that's like a word for sauce. Maybe is what is it. So okay cool. You know I'm literally allergic to why people feel like like physically. Now we're talking so I I got tested for my allergies. I get a lot of sore throats of mucus right now. My my my voice is fucked up. Karaoke Marcia. He went heart so but I got tested. I'm allergic to citric acid. Which is anything lemon lime stuff like that and cream base stuff? Milk based things so injured tomatoes and cream literally the shit that they threw in a coma sal. I'm allergic to give me a ton of Mucus. Wow Yeah it's interesting because I think it's funny. I remember reading somewhere that Asian people can like they can get down like Stinky Tofu. And it's like it doesn't faze them at all but then like stinky cheese like a bree will like fuck them up like just the smell. Well fuck US up physically open. I think like genetically. I think I think you guys you guys are you guys aren't designed for the for saying most Asian. People are lactose intolerant. But apparently I met a lot of Asians that aren't you know I guess it. Just you're alerted stuff. You didn't grow up eating absolutely for me lime and like oranges and stuff. I just got a ton of Mucus. That's why it's funny for me one in America. You see this a lot. When there's a new diet fad and all that you can only eat this dairies the devil and it's not like Yo like if you fucking grew up in Greece you can probably fuck with some fettuccine and you'll be fine and also like probably it's just American version of what I bet gluten or milk. That's shit right now. If you go to like I've heard stories of people that are like allergic to gluten are straight up like silly AC or whatever the go to Italy and they can eat all the gluten because it's more natural it's not like fucking process right it doesn't have the Monsanto Jizan it. Yeah Monsanto Jasdaq Ego. That's what's making sick. Monsanto want sandwiches in our mouth by the way in your fridge last minute this morning you like. I gotTa send you this. This needs to make it into the picks close ups. I gotta I gotTa get some love the closest but this this wacky sausage. This is my favorite sauces. Arab-japanese sausage is made while board dark pork. And it's delicious. It's tiny it's actually the maybe the size of my finger and I was a little long. Oh interesting and Yeah it's it's really good by Japanese market. It's not cheap that little pack. Maybe a big like science size the size of my fist. You know it's like eleven dollars but some of the most delicious sausage grilled pan. Fry It putting your rice or it's good. Yeah exactly so it's the casing has a snap to it and then and then. The meat is so juicy and delicious. And it's a good pork flavor. It's like naturally raised. You know dark pork it's delicious. You know it's funny because one of my favorite restaurants in La is called NAMA UNCON- Tori joint. It's it's on the west side. Okay it is you you walk in. You just walked into Tokyo when you walk into their. It's amazing but they always have a hot dog on it and I'm like I'm not gonNA fucking hot dog and that's exactly what you were talking about. That gets hot dog. I had one of those at that Moi day. Whatever the PISS alley place in Katori in Tokyo? That's that was the best thing the sausage. Wow Yeah so tell me about about Japan. Did you discover anything? What did you discover that you did not think you were going to discover that? Blew your mind anything exciting that I think Japan was everything. I expected him. More Tokyo's my favorite city in the world. Now agree you realize. La Or American general with about fifty years in the past and that Tokyo Hong combat is modern society. Yeah the bullet trains. We don't have the bullet train the Shinkansen since the seventies yeah America the greatest. I'm doing air quotes. The greatest country in the world doesn't have a fucking bullet train. Yeah Amtrak takes eight hours to get to San Francisco fucking bullshit like we live in the past dude like civilization is happening in these amazing modern cities elsewhere absolutely and the food is great. People take so much pride. It's so clean one thing. I didn't expect people don't speak as much English as I thought. You really cannot get around with speaking. It's that blew my mind. I mean it was so like it was so kind of pretentious of me to be like. How could you guys not speaking very American? How can you not speak my language? I rule the world. Yeah but if you go to Paris Paris people might be low snobby but they understand it. Yeah Florence Italy. Whatever people like the tourist these towns they they make an attempt to speak English. Because that's how you get a job but in Japan. Fuck you the language which which I think adds to the funnel he really feel like you're lost in translation. I and a different land. I have to Google translate and stuff and for me. It's even a little. I don't know if it's worse or better because people assume I'm Japanese. They start speaking Japanese demand. My Oh so sorry. I mean they can't tell by looking at you that you're Chinese prison. I'm good I kinda like Chang. My blood is Shanghainese. So I'm a little Paler and stuff. I look somewhat Japanese right compared to some Chinese people. I don't look Super Chinese. I don't think right so they just assume and yeah now the town like I'm sorry now look like a sell out like. I'm like you know maybe I'm Japanese. Don't speak Japanese but the food is amazing. Everyone did you have. What was your craziest Sushi? Did you do an insane? Like I knew I think Sushi Gins. Ooh I forgot Ginza. Tawny semi the recommendations Ginza. Whatever Sushi it's like. Oh my say that costs and of causing a three hundred fifty dollars. Yeah so Ginza. This area in in Japan in Tokyo. That is like the Rodeo. Drive if you will. And it's like very very they have these like crazy. Sushi places that have like six seats one or two servings of night and it's three hundred fifty bucks a person and it'll blow your fucking my. It's amazing that was my first meal when I landed in Tokyo Jetlagged having three hundred thousand baller move right It was it was awesome. But I gotta say this. Everything is so good in Japan. It's it's hard to find a batmobile in Japan. Yeah so everywhere you go. Rahman restaurant Raynham Sushi Restaurant. You get like an eight out of ten. Yeah but then you pay four hundred dollars and you get like you know a ten out of ten but it's not it's exponentially more expensive but it's not exponentially better so if money's no issue go go to those ten out of ten places. Yeah but you know just go to Japan a ram and it's like ten dollars a great Muni Salmon Rice Bowl. It's also like fifteen dollars and be like one best meals here and if you don't have to go to those four hundred dollar places. People have so much pride in what they do. I mean it's a culture where literally people take average sort and kill himself. Yeah absolutely from on the subway. I saw five times. I just keep thinking about that. He's like oh. This is too culture. Yeah people fucking kill themselves if they don't do it right and the thing that's the thing that is interesting to us. I think in America is that they're not doing it to get any type of credit but they're not doing it to become the most famous here. I feel like a lot of our drivers like I need to get the most legs. I need to get more people to get the most customers shit. Yeah like they'll turn you away. I went to Sushi arm to get Sushi to go because I was like in Russia. There like mineral. You can't take it to leave. I'll I'll pay for it like no. It's not going to taste the same. If you leave with your sack these people fucking loved it. It's legit that's like Santa Kerama. They don't they don't do Takeaways here really yeah. It's Legit Man. Like and people are so respectful. I get very angry. Easily like I've like road rage stuff like that and I'm like what the fuck is I got. Doors that guy just cut in line like shit like that just little shit bothers me right but in Japan. Never got pissed now because everyone's so respectful and how they lost the war to us off. Something called nuclear physics. Nuclear Physics will allies matter. How much pride you have the new. I mean we were about to lose the war if it's an awful nuclear bomb that's true and I get it that's true. They're so organized and and I mean just great. Great People Man. They're great they're going back to Jimmy after this. I love soup. Dumplings also known as long bow can't get enough for them. But how did they get the soup into the dumpling? A chef in Shanghai invented them in the late eighteen hundreds his move was to make the filling with ASPIC which is a jelly made with meat. Stock me Jedi hence. When you cook the dumpling the aspect would melt creating a soupy inside genius. And here's my go-to recipe for soup. Dumplings step one go on yelp step to type in soup dumplings. Step three get in your car. Drive to the restaurant and step for order. The soup dumplings. Oh almost forgot step five. Make sure you. Preheat your car's heater to seventy two degrees.

A. W. He's an Asian Australian person and he makes the most like the best and easiest Japanese and Asian food On Youtube really. I've been watching a lot and it's taught me a lot about making Japanese food really interesting very easy I'm going to check them out Okay ready go ahead. Here we go. What is your your earliest memory. I think it's probably my dad. Making Shanghainese food like The red braised pork sauce braised pork Little a vegetable and Slice pork noodles for lunch He was a great cook and also making tons of my mom and stuff. You know a very by hand. It's really Oh yeah so you just have that one. You went to that one time party I wanted. I want my neighbors house downstairs. He's also a Chinese American and Very Fun and we just made our own versions of tons. It's way easier than you think. Yeah by the way I just remembered something. You're you would stare the crafty people and say that's who I wanna be my version of that when I walk by a Chinese Restaurant the ones that have the the duck and and there's the dude who got the big stump of wood with the class. Oh my God like like chopping chicken with no regard for where the bone is shop. Do the phone that guy. I WanNa be that guy that guy. Usually those guys have a missing finger. Yes I want to miss my finger so chopping is your thing. I love a good. Do you have a good knife game? What what you go to knife. I use a Sun Toko knife but I. I need to get better. I need to get better knives. Here's the thing. Though I went to Japan and I was ready to drop like five hundred bucks on a nine and I went and their knives are very very light and very very thin. Oh it's more like cutting through Sushi. Yeah they were like very very delicate and I like I like a European knife more because they're a little more meaty German knives What's that little? Yeah I have one of those Who stops are great but you know the best knife I got one of them. It's like a toy online from Amazon. It's a beautiful handle and not the sharpest knife but it's great sharpening it and then the other one. I bought five dollars at a time grocery store here. It's like a little cleaver very thin but it's great for chopping vegetables. I love a good clear. Yeah I need to get a cleaver. This look cool. Yeah it's funny. I always thought because because I went to these knife shops in Tokyo. And they're like the these I've reading about it. They used to make Samurai swords and then like once. Gunpowder will. Gum came out there. Like all right guys. We gotTA pivot. We're going to start making things to chop vegetables. Like how much how much of a mind fuck must have been for the employees there. We're going to go from making these murdering machines to like something to make your mere Smith and Wesson started making like pots and pans regret. What is your death row meal last meal of Your Life. I think about this a lot. It's tough because I might actually just go for a piece of prime rib 'cause I love Asian Food and you know whatever but that's my go to like stinking rose which is one of my favorite restaurants is garlic theme restaurant and agree. Prime Rib just like garlic prime rib some mashed potatoes. Just eat yourself silly or maybe all you can in Korean Barbecue. It has to be some kind of meat. Yeah this this restaurant the stinking rose. Yeah I've never been to it. It's great that's their tagline on their sign is a garlic restaurant is also on the mission for the perfect prime rib. Who which I haven't visited Larry Perfect. I haven't been to lorries either though. I have not been lorries either. But I've had great prime ribs in many places stinging roads just got a good flavor. It's not the best prime rib but it's very garlicky and scrape. It's good enough to have before you die. Yeah get to that point well in case we do. We're prepared for it. What is the best high end meal you've ever had? Ooh That's tough. I don't really go to Michelin Star Restaurants. You know I'll pay for good. Omarska say I guess I don't know an answer. That question really You don't do these like crazy like laundry. Ish Type Restaurant. I have not Because those usually disappoint I agree ninety nine four me. 'cause I'm there for the flavor I don't give a shit about your presentation. Oh Yeah I get it. I can't here's the thing I always forget that. That's how I feel at the end of the meal and then like six months later. I'm like I can't wait to do it and then I I'm excited because all these people and then by the end of like water I do this and I I do WanNa go to like a set meal like Michelin. I don't know I got buddies to go that like you know not everybody's on Silicon Valley. I can't just like my buddy at worst construction. I can just ask them to go to fucking French laundry me like I'll have to pay for the meal you know rare and it's too I've been Nobu. I think it's so over hyped and it's not worth it now the fucking the Rock Strip is what they're known for the fucking rocks deep fry. It's got their Popeye's Popcorn Shrimp Kota. We've got him spicy manase. Go Fuck Yourself. I don't love it and then you go there like whatever David Spade and Rhonda rouses. They'll go there they don't fucking no food go fuck yourself out. I'm not down with noble if Nobu was like regular priced. It's delicious fine. Whatever but I'm not paying whatever three hundred dollars for like just an okay. Whatever meal yes. That is my least favorite meal the overpriced bullshit. Hollywood meal you had to pit him is that I mean I. I heard Noble. Malibu has a great view and stuff. I never been a good view. It's a good view but I live right by Nobu here in Las Vegas. Yeah I don't ever go there no fucking stupid. I'm not trying to impress nobody. Yeah if if you shots was saying if you don't like me and my worst you don't deserve best or whatever fuck if you don't like me at a restaurant you don't deserve me a note if a girl if I'm going out with a girl and she only like I have to impress her. Forget it yeah. Novato one girl I dated. She made me walk out of room. Paired. It's great tie. Restroom pairs great. It's great because she was a fish. Can't go fuck yourself and move back to Ohio. But she was probably a super trying to see like okay. We'll go anywhere else. We're GONNA do this all like motley white girl go fight John. Dunaway by the way ruined pairs allies assessors favorite restaurant. Oh really yeah. When she mentioned that on I Love I love her husband. She loves because she knows food food. Yeah it's a greatest barbecue in this. What is the best low end meal you've ever had so it doesn't necessarily mean I have a lot of great low end me? Yeah ty restaurants and feel like I feel like you live in the low end meal do it doesn't matter like a low end meals. I mean at the end. They after tips. It cost twenty dollars. Yeah so it's not like the lowest but you know so I was in. I study abroad in Florence for four months when I was twenty The best meals. I've had There 'cause I didn't have a lot of money. I was on a student loan so I had some Nice Italian meals. Scrape Pasta and stuff but one of the best is just Kebab shop interesting. Yeah this Turkish Kebab shop down the street from me and the Guy Mustafa he would just shaved a mean and so simple. It's like four or five dollars donor at Donner Kebab and eight that like every other day because I was poor and it was delicious. It was just so good and put French fries in it. So it's like a California Burrito that's cheating man you put fries in fucking anything and it'll but it has to be the right kind of fries. Yeah that complements to meet and that was delicious. I thought you were going to go with. Because in Florence. They have these like amazing. Little Sandwich shops. Oh yeah that like have Italian like Caccia sandwiches cheap and liquid mortar della Dale Good. Oh Yeah love. Effort in Italy like the Happy Hour basically and you pay seventy dollars and as as dirty Americans. We look at as a buffet but nobody does that. But I'm there I've been starving on edge. Go there as a buffet. And then you can all you can drink wine and like meats and whatever the normal talent would just go there glass of wine and maybe one plate of meat right now not us. Yeah fucking show you. It's done Italy. What is your favorite junk food? Oh interesting trunk food. You know maybe I gotta go back to that kind of like how guys like. Honestly that's just so good it just like a mishmash of food or you know what I used to do. A lot of sets or get drunk and then go to town not ruined pair but this place on. Wilton that only open from five. Pm to four am a lot of comics go there. It's very cheap okay. It's called total wrong. Okay it's Great. It's great and then they have like the shrine vessel thing with the flames for the thome soup. Wow great drunk food I love it. Yeah do you have a go-to hangover food for usually? Oh interesting yeah. I'm I going to get some right now after this very very clean and I always think it's a fine line between really good fun. Fucking awful dishwater. Oh yeah it is rough like MSG filled for yeah. I needed to I needed to have needs to. I need to taste the fucking bones. The beef bone. I gotTA shout out to my peeps on Fairfax for Saigon. Pearl family owned. It doesn't taste like super flavorful like the but but it tastes very homemade and ozzy. I swear every batch taste a little different. It's racist subtle. Yeah it's not very MSG or like very salty. Good Nice ball of for. I'm going to fire some shots right now. Gopher I love it seems like every Asian culture like every different one has their has their version of a soup wittol noodles right my favorite kind of meal. You know who's I can't stand. The Korean won. I fucking have never had a Korean soup that liked and I've been to all the best ones they just as they have that dishwater two. It's like there's something unrefined about it. I just don't fucking like I knew everyone gets behind it. And David Chang says you gotta go to spoon by h is the best restaurant. Somebody sorry I fucking went there. I was like I'm not a bowl of Rahman will beat this any fucking day of the week absolutely. I love Korean food for their meats and stuff and dumplings but noodles. I never loved like Ming dong-gill Jazz. Great dumpling joint but they have all kinds of different noodles chicken noodle soup whatever the noodles always kind of soggy and two long fucks me up man like in those Korean restaurants to give you those flat metal chopsticks. Fuck you and you can't pick up noodles with those chopsticks man. It's awful. Yeah you know what they do that because they're probably easier to fucking clean. Oh is that what I imagined because why it looks pretty baller? Who on earth? Yeah but it sucks though. It's like the worst. Yeah it's I. I don't know those noodles. It's hard to pick up a can never like slurp it they haven't gone there noodle game right. I totally agree with you man. Yeah I think and I think the reason David Chang look I we all go for a nostalgia food so he reminds him of his childhood. Or whatever yeah I get that my h seems like something. A Korean mother would primate. Yeah but things and there seems I'd be fucking surreal. That she's not my mother real shots fired off my mom's actually Persian. I don't think it tastes awful. I think it tastes fine but like dumplings alike. Soggy and stuff. It's just homemade yeah. Persians you're saying urges. Have our own version of Robin which is delicious. I didn't know that. Yeah it's called us and it's basically the soup that is made. It's there's no meat broth. It's all just herbs like more herbs than you can imagine in this broth with a Sour Sarah dried limes cooked forever. And then these rice noodles and it is fucking. Is there soup? Yeah that's the soup that Susan is. Okay is this herb concoction and it's harder though at the same time. Is it based like Persian food? That tastes there is a little bit of that. Fenugreek is usually what what gives it that little creek. Okay a little taste of fucking Westwood Boulevard. It's delicious I mean. And there's usually a lot of mashed up beans in it to to add. That's how they pfennig Ricky's vinegar week is. Is it like a like a herb? It's an herb that if you eat it you will smell like it for two days owing seeps out in your skin. Yay Really Delicious. But it's Funky but yeah again. Korean suck no no no no as you were saying Jim Koreans have Jimmy. Ads were saying like they do the best barbecue they do. Have the best part they barbecue game is is is best is legit. Do you have a favorite celebrity chef or or food personality? Leo Oh okay. I'm a big fan of David. Chang Roy the friends of mine. Yeah Roy especially David maybe I ran to maybe a time or two but Yeah Adam Leo Man. He makes cooking so easy and he teaches how to make ramen but he doesn't just teach a strict recipe he teach you a concept of. Rahman I love basically it's any type of broth clear or thick or like you know cloudy and then makes with taty which is like the show. You ASSAULT SEASONING. Mix with toppings and noodles so he teaches you the concept so he can make your own version of whatever you. WanNa may yeah Rahman or whatever it might be but it doesn't just give you a strict recipe so soothing watching that guy. I love that I can check them out. L. A. W. Adam Leon Yeah Or Andrew Adam Shit and I don't remember but they find it but he's our favorite but the the thing about that. Pantry is like if you have. If you have a couple of can choice ingredients that you just you just going by. You have a good fish sauce. You got You know have your Mirren. And you're a little bit of Sake and whatever it's very easy to to to whip something so easy and you can make unlimited variations based on. It's like every type of food is Taco Bell. Yeah you know you just. There's five ingredients and you're gonNA make a million things Thai food all you need seasoning. Wise is a fish sauce. Sugar Alster sauce and soy sauce. Yeah if you have those four things you can make whatever okay and same thing with Japanese food. I didn't grow up making Japanese who my parents are like. You know knowing what Japanese about. It's a very specific kind of mommy flavor. that's very Japanese so realize most of his stash broth. Yeah it's like help for instead of using like a chicken broth or whatever they used Dashi Broth. So that's very easy. You just go buy a packet of Dashi which might not the best. But by pack of the dossier of some Dashi Broth righty. So you need Tash e you need a sugar or sometimes I substitute honey and then you need a mirren or sake you know some kind of wine and acid and you need a good Japanese soy sauce. Yeah those four things you said Japanese. Yeah Yeah so easy. Absolutely what is your? What is Your Desert Island food? So you're on trump and a desert. There's one thing you're going to have to eat breakfast lunch and dinner. You're never gonNA tire. Is it a type of cuisine or is it just literally one item on the Menu Let's go let's let's let's do both if one item what is it. Maybe Rahm is what can I have different variations around? We'll give you that. Okay I will give you that if there's variation before a trap you on the silent if there's variation maybe evacuate say like noodle soup that will be because that's literally what. I eat everyday kinds of noodle soup if I can go a little broader like dim-sum because there's a lot of variation but that might get old I think noodle soup noodle soup whatever that may be okay. Love that Two more questions. Is there a food that you just can't stand eating? You fucking hate it. Oh I can't really. I grew up like around Durian never I never ate it just garbage do I. Can't that will make me throw. You still have any net dude no interest. You have what I've tried during candy and stuff like that. That's that's gross. I don't know a Durian has this. It's text the textures so delicious. It's like it's like a breach easy texture and it's like a funk to it and you have to let yourself go us to lose control in. Funk I just am I don't need to do before I die. I mean like us. He never lived until you win like skydiving. I don't need it. Yeah I'm fine. No I know before you die. You're going to have a fucking garlicky. Prime Rib yeah exactly when the during and do you have last question. What are your do you have a restaurant pet peeve? Yes absolutely when the waiter doesn't write down your order if the worst and then they come back. Oh my God this motherfucker. This one place talent place. I'm not gonNA name name. The food is fine. The Olive Garden. Yeah but but but there's this kind of like Bro. He like Guido Guy. There you know. He's like real bro. And he thinks he knows everything you know and He always he thinks he got memory. So I'm like let me get this. That and then he motherfucker comes back twenty minutes later. You got The DENIA and I was like if you WANNA wrote it down. You don't ask me. And he pretend he didn't forget about it but he forgot about it. Yeah and they and they asked you in a way like. Oh and you've got the spaghetti me in the right right right. I'm like no you fucked. Write it down and sometimes I straight I tell the guy to write it down. I'm sure you don't want to write this now. And they always say no. No I got it I've been. I've been a waiter for twenty years ago. Being away for twenty years doesn't give you an amazing memory. No it doesn't give you higher. I Q now Okay and the worst part about it is you have this thing the whole time. Are they going to get it right? And even if they get it right. You're not impressed by it. You're like you're just like fuck man. Why don't have to go through? I'm not GonNa tip you more. If he got right. Yeah but if you got it wrong. I'm pissed it's like. Why are you showing off to did awful awful? I'm with you I hated any others I'm trying to think that's the big one for sure. I can just tell you like. That's the one that if I was to think of other ones. Not Not not really not huge. I'm very lenient. I know it's a service industries not easy yeah and But fucking write it down and make your job to make your life easier by writing it down yet. Rules Homeo- I guess I don't. I don't like to stand in lines. Yeah I don't care for like Seaney line places but then I realize everywhere in Tokyo you gotta stay on the line. Yeah it's true but there I I let him get away with it. It's fine. I'll wait in line there. It's orderly just because of the restaurants small it's small and the guy has been fucking training since he was four years old on how to make the soup. Oh wait in line for the soup. La I guess. Everything's kind of a scene. Yeah I have a general policy that if I got to wait in line to go waiting in line for a scene is the worst thing. In Life Life Craig's Craig's the steakhouse. I'm never been and no interest anybody that I judged them if they suggest Craig. Oh yeah what? Do you want to get pictures? `Paparazzi like why would you go there? Yeah it's an awful. There's a boat of Paparazzi's outside of restaurants like you WanNa go there to be seen literally the senior place. Yeah it's awful and worse than that. I don't think the age. They're fucking stakes. I think that they're charging steakhouse prices. And they're just serving you a steak from a fucking supermarket not age doesn't have that funk to it I never had. The food is good. I never been inside no. It's not good. It's not like I would understand if it's like you got a brave these douchebag TMZ tackling to go have the best thing ever. But you're doing it for a mediocre steak. Yeah same then. We'll like Nobu. It's fine yeah. I don't need to make a reservation. I liked end. End This on a negative. Just to get you all riled up before I send you home. So thank you Jimmy Nobu Craig's Golly you from me I'm going to say for Koreans who I know it's not coming from you Jimmy. Oh thank you so much.

This conversation with Jimmy is one that we had back in two thousand eighteen when Jimmy had just released a new book called how to American Erickson. An immigrant's guide to disappointing. Your parents talked about that book and about new movie that he was in. At the time a little bitty film you might have heard of called crazy. Easy rich. Asians here's me and Jimmy O Yang. Enjoy it finished her book last night. thank you so funny. Thanks I was going to in preparation for this interview. Do something and then I was like like no. It's too weird. I was going to go to your logo. Oh man bunch the sauces. Tell me which one's your favorite the you know. I I can tell you each one of the sauces without looking at it okay go green guacamole one okay. That was by far my favorite. Why 'cause watery it's a little it's believing watery Komo libra but exactly but it's a salsa so it's okay they don't try to sell you as Guacamole? It's all about how you look at it as it's okay. That's a good rule for life So I bring this up because there's this wonderful story about your grandfather. Introducing you to America through the wonders enjoys of polio low. Can you tell that story because it's so good the first day me and my father and my whole family came to America. My GRANDPA's been living here for a few years already in La in La so he kind of knows his way around. He's like I'm GonNa take you you guys to my favorite American restaurant and you came here at thirteen from Hong Kong EXAC okay. So grandpa walked down last boulevard. which the street you don't walk down down you don't call or even Shanghai where my GRANDPA's from you walk down everything right? Yeah so he has no concept of how far to walk and we had a walking out a forty five minutes of just nothing but strip malls and six lane traffic. We're GONNA go. You ought to go by like Olympic out massive INTERSEX. Why why would you do that? Took forty five minutes to walk like I duNno I two miles to another massive strip mall with La Fitness. And everything. And I don't even know what that is no concept of chimps. Yeah because I came from Hong call everybody skinny and we walked out calories off. We didn't have to go to gym or outside at the park. Mark at six in the morning doing stretches. Is that happening over there. That happens everywhere. Okay what are they doing anyway. You go there's two hundred fifty Asia six. AM stretching. Ching that's crazy. I don't know how much it is. Make the cut but I love it. Go You walking down last year to go after forty five minutes in his massive strip mall my GRANDPA GRANDPA light. This is my favorite restaurant in America. It's authentic Mexican food and you cannot find China and I looked up and El Pollo Loco uh-huh and we should point out a downscale fast food Mexican drive-thru chain. Yeah so you go in there. What is it like for you? The cash register person was asking my GRANDPA. Do you want doc meet a white meat and my GRANDPA. They explained to us. You always dark me. That's the good part of chicken in the wings is agree leg with the with the dry and he said the white me is rough. That's like you know dumb. American people am okay. You didn't have the chance to choose. What part of the chicken you got? But I'd have to choose and really even in Hong Kong. We ordered like the Hainanese chicken and all that and my dad always got the back or like the leg nobody ever gets to breast okay so really. No arrests ain't the business and then it's just all these little customs that wasn't used to lay in Hongkong. You Order Whatever Soda you want to get it for you behind register here. You get a soda. You get a water and go refill yourself. and My GRANDPA whisper to us. He was like hey just get to water. Okay 'cause here you can just get the water and then go get Soda Yourself Boileau about a soda. Because that's how they make their money. You can't do that well. GRANDPA did I didn't know you can just turn water into Dr Pepper in this country. And then you walk over to the Salsa Bar my GRANDPA was like you. Just take take anything you want and I'm like what do we don't have to pay for. This is like no no just take anything you want. Why this country's amazing so that was like my first experience not just with food in America but with American Freedom American Eric Freedom? Courtesy of EPO. After I love it. Okay so you have been here now since thirty. How old are you now thirty thirty? Yeah do you still have that same sense. Sense of what. Read to me in the book. Is this inherent amazement with all that America is has some of that worn off for you some of it of course with age it kind of goes away. They like the size of innocent seeing everything a new lens but now I try to go to other countries with that Lens even going back to Hong Kong Hong Kong for the first time uh-huh and seventeen years and I was culture shock in Hong Kong. Your home like I was culture shock. Yeah it's the opposite of what I felt when I came here when I was thirteen. The the streets. I'm not used to the streets being this narrow now I'm not used to people rubbing my shoulder to shoulder. I'm not used to walking after a meal to take the subway you know and everything think just language and but it felt good. It was a good culture shock after just a couple of days of that initial shot what I found myself being very comfortable and that East like the weight of being a minority. Just being something different in in this country was gone. I was just dude. You're just to do. I didn't have to be the Asian dude or careful of all. Let's try to not drive. A Honda Accord dim sum and play Ping Pong. Because that's stereotypical here. Listen live that life. Yeah it'd be a wonderful day for me. Yeah and that life and how calling you just normal normal did you just do it it. It's not a stereotype until you come here. You know so I just felt at ease man I I could have done whatever I wanted what I like and I was just a dude. You know hearing you talk about that it makes me think of this movie. You're going to be in soon crazy. Rich Asians where it seemed like you get to just be dude because entire cast is absolutely and the buzz around is phenomenal already. Described this film for folks that have heard about it yet. So craciun spaced on a book written by Kevin Kwan. Call call crazy. It's three books so this movie does well. Maybe there'll be trilogy but most importantly it's the first movie in Twenty Five Years First Studio Pitcher in twenty five years. Here's since joy luck club the features a four Asian cast its sales Black Panther. Yes my said on twitter. People got mad at who who I'm like. This is going to be Black Panther. Obviously jokingly because Yahoo movies are nothing alike so but for me. It's like I hope basically with that statement. I'm saying I. I hope it's going to be box. Office assess yeah cultural presentation. Panthers and Black People tweeted me. They're mad they they tell me. Shut the F. Up and they tell me like why. Why is it like whenever blind people got a little bit of shine? y'All got to try to take yourself. What are you talking about? Twitter is bad. Yeah and Asian. People like Y'all this movie it could stand on its. Aw like we don't have to compare it like diminished. Both of the movie What does it feel to make a movie like this? That is in many ways groundbreaking but is also entering in this cultural moment right now where it seems. Everyone is always mad about everything before it's even there. You're already experiencing that with this movie. Because some people are saying oh the portrayal of Asians to anglicized to hetero normative. They're all too pretty or whatever like you know who's critiquing the hardest or the critique that I get from my acting career for Asian people you plan an immigrant on Silicon Valley that makes me look bad blah blah blah all. This played accented character. But I try to play everything very the authentic even if it is an accent immigrant Jinyang that I plan Silicon Valley. I try play version of myself when I came to this country. I was thirteen and I'm trying to represent my immigrants. It's so he wrote in the book. Something you basically said like the issue is not the role the issue is the baggage people feel about. These accents ends themselves. Why do you feel so bad about the accent and so feel regard is sexy? Whatever accent why am I not? Everyone likes British accents. Yeah why is it when a white actor actor or even a black actor does a a British accent. It's considered art. It's considered. Oh he did well nobody ever gave Chadwick Bozeman anything like African accent. You'll never re misrepresent African people but you know what you know what it is. What is and this? Movie's hopefully GonNa fix part of that. It's not enough of us out there. Okay so everything is being scrutinized when you one out of five Asian people on TV auto pressures on you and you have to represent with all the spectrum. I can name. I don't know okay. Let's go to John Show is always on TV. He is always working. My Boy Kim Jong is always a movies TV. He something he's easy. He's hilarious serve as a comedian was funny. I like you know it's it was okay. So who else who. Else Constance Wu. Oh Yeah Randall Park. I mean the whole show I. Yeah Yeah so there are getting more and more now okay. But it's still. It's like the problem with that documentary. Yeah Simpson was the most most important. If you're the one you carry all the weight exactly so the problem it's it's not enough representation and hopefully with crazy rich Asian you can ho spectrum spectrum of Asian and I felt so good doing that movie because I could I can just be funny and act the fool. Yeah because I'm not represent all Asia's I'm just represent one one personality but you know some people will want to represent all Asians what they wanNA blame for some you know just because do you ever tweet back. You have a right back. I made the mistake of engaging not a week ago. What did you do and it was horrible? It was like one of the worst experience twitter. Just everybody jumped on my case. It's like saying this and that communist sell out calling me Whatever Alco Chan or something but like you know usually whatever I read? It's very positive at this girl. Come up to me after his book. Signing it's like very proud of you you know you're successful like our success. Okay and I felt great about that and then people you know tweeting me. Great things or instant message this kid. He's like I'm fifteen. I just came from China. I don't speak English very well and like your book is the First Book I've read in English without anybody's help really and that's really inspiring and I hope you keep doing that. So by largest great and I love Asian fans and they awesome but it's this small population invaders that it's a conspiracy theorist almost then like when some nasty profile to see who they are right. It's never their real picture. That always some Ravello Eh pitcher. Yeah they one guy tweeted me. They said 'cause in a Huffington Post article. I'm like I'm sorry I'm not the good-looking Chow. Yun Fat Asian you know but character actors neat rows to also don't sell yourself short. Don't say that you're not good looking right right but I'm not good looking in the movie sense like I'm sorry I'm not like six to as super go. Look and you're gonNa tell me I can't act right like I shouldn't be representative because I in this right Ha. So now people turning media like Hollywood with chose you because they know you ain't good looking and they WANNA represent Asia. People would your ugly face all my God because and then and then at the end because everybody casting you is white that a DA. How do they know who's I know? And then they said at the end of that tweet they said F white supremacy. I'm not saying I don't exist out there. But how's that. How does that get your check? This supremacist about you. You're talking about white supremacists conspiracy putting me on TV to represent Asian people all purpose. I'm like what the hell are you talking about no clue Klux Klan member anointed anointed. Me To as in person on TV. Okay you can do it yourself. God this makes me so angry into making so angry I feel like a rally up. I know it just I hear I hear you though. Come on man. Let's talk about the book. The book has the most wonderful title. How to American an immigrant's guide to disappointing your parents in thirty seconds? Tell folks what this book is GonNa give him give hope no. It's I I hope to give people a little inspiration of this outsider. Making it in America Assimilating First Day as an immigrant and assimilating in a job that has parents. Chris doesn't believe in at all at all think. My Dad has been telling me since day one I was born. Being an artist is how you become homeless. Yes yes pursuing your dreams become home. I love even like even after you've succeeded. He says this is like the last pitcher broke. He says quote having you as my son is like winning the lottery not the mega millions Jackpot but like the small twenty dollar prize. You're dead sounds areas as statement sums up exactly exactly who is he. He's he bust my chops all the time. Okay he's the joker to family but it's funny. Yeah so like and I feel like he loves you from what I reading the book absolutely. It's a complicated relationship. We love each other but sometimes I wish he's more like that dad or that mom that just like I'm so proud of you I love you. But that's that's not that's not it and that's not him but deep down I know he loves me. Yeah so the book deals a lot with your relationship with him and with your mother but but it's it's focused on what it's like for you to come to America at thirteen so you won you come from Hong Kong which is China but not quite in your already kind of an outside tired of their because you speak a different dialect from other foe right so you come to the. US Thirteen to L. A.. which is totally different? And you were already marginalized back back home. And now you're like extra extra standing out like describe those first few days describe that first day at school it was tough looking back at it. Yeah but going through it. It was like wow. This is kind of amazing but scary at the same time because there was even points like you didn't even know what to say when someone said what's up. Yeah I just looked up in the sky I five seconds. I'm like what are you talking about. And it goes like what's up and I looked up. I'm like nothing. There's nothing up. There she explained to me was what's up man. How you doing and I was a kid? It's got dumped in a no country with a new language culture. I never met no black people white people Latino people yeah. I've only hung out with Chinese people back home. Yeah even the Asia People here when Chinese do Koreans so I I. I had nowhere to go where I can find like a safety safety zone. I was forced to assimilate what everyone. Yeah which in a way is a blessing in disguise. Make sure if I would have went to like a Chinese heavy high school here in America. I could've just kinda hermit it in that that and that's never really fully assimilated. Well I love how you describe how you figured out the culture and the language there was one big the big kind of TV textbook for you which was B. E. T. black entertainment television. Oh that's kind of like how you taught yourself English and American culture. Actually we have some tape of the time where you I guess shutdown Arsenio Hall's show how I did what I came here. This is a true story when I first came here I. I barely spoke English and learn how to speak English by watching television. Two months into it I realized I was watching Telemundo. In what is sown and this twelve of them. What does that so eventually last Switzer channel and you can still hear my voice today a learn most of my English by watching? Bet Rap city taken basement freestyle Friday. Saturday there's nothing more American Snoop Dogg. You know and I didn't know any better. I just thought that's how everybody talked so I wanted to lunch lady the next today. I'm like a what a do shoddy talk about all of that because I find it so fascinating I think watching ATV is one of the most important cultural lessons anyone can learn because it's not the TV program and tells you what Americans like and also to commercials cels tells you what they're really buying into like even a tone of the commercials. It's different here. It's funnier whereas in Hong Kong it's more heartfelt more family oriented right instead of US issue the dumb bumbling husband Bellingham. Yeah like or like I'm a man and I don't know how to change a diaper exactly eight those so so that really tells you about the culture one of the most interesting channels I found when I flip the channels was not. I never seen anything like that. It was like not just American. No I've never seen anything like. It was one of a kind airy specific part of America and it was so intriguing to me as a thirteen year. Old boy first of all you got rap city city right. We're taking a basement and that was amazing. I've never heard has the news that was on. Bt before that even when they were still doing video soul all my ah video soul now and this is like straight up straight ahead iron beat and they moved more into rap with rhapsody into the gym. anyways you watch bt not your watson rap videos wrapped teaches you. English basically wrapped teaching English. Because to me I could not understand a word of that in school and conversation or even when I'm watching Colombian cartels today some of it but the way rappers speaking. I'm like if I could understand this. This is a calculus to me. Figure this out I can understand Algebra I can understand everything so okay to me like bt was a calculus. I needed to figure it out. I needed to understand what they're talking about. Culturally to to understand America and not just rap city. Comic view was another show. This is so for those who don't know it was bts probably what their version in of death comedy jam absolutely stand up comics. Who is your favorite one? I love OUGHTA hosts J.. Anthony Brown Bruce Bruce Bruce. Bruce was amazed as Rickey Smiley Smile. Here's radio stuff is amazing too. Yeah now now it's killing you. I used to love some more.

I just thought I was weird. Okay you know but it's better to be like the weird kid than a foreign kid to some like uh-huh hip hop kit. Okay and the way of foreign kid. 'cause I I went so hard and that hip hop direction is trying to cover up the fact that I'm emigrant and I have kind of Chinese and he's accent. I covered it up with a hip hop accent in a way so now that he's looked at me like okay. Good for him he just he just loves you know bt instead of like well. He's aware foreign kid.

So you love rap so much you love hip hop so how much you love the much you end up talking about in the book how you in the Fringe Maiden Highschool Beverly Hills High School. My Dad used a fake address. Got To do what you gotta do. You gotta man but at Beverly Hills High School you and some other immigrants friends former rap group and then you become like a hip hop rap produced like you you make beats. Yeah I I guess creative outlet. I've always loved building stuff like making stuff and this. This was the first thing that I found really really rewarding was making something out of nothing. Had you had musical experience. I play the violin. Of course I Five I was in school orchestra and everything. Okay so I kinda know some music but really when you come to making a beat especially when I was doing it When add fruity loops programs? It was just messing on the computer. How do I find your beats online? Are they online. They used to be. I don't think they are. They're all the way. What would I search for? I'll post them you can't you really can't search anything I'll put someone you should send us something. And then we can wrap the interviews with with like one of your BS. Yes yes some pretty cool beats. I got pretty good at it. I was selling. I'm beat some you know. Everyone says that no needs a great. I got the point where I got my first paycheck from what you read it and I sure did but I wanted to say it was a former porno website porno website as one of your Randy's when you're a high school student at Beverly Hills boy only in America. I thought I made it. I made you know that was big. So that's high school high school cool finishes and then your dad is like Bro. You got to go to college. That's not a choice. There's never a conversation you need to go to college. It's just oh what's after high school. Yeah College which college are you going to. That's the conversation so I was I. I didn't know any better I didn't get into UCLA OR UC their loss. Yeah their loss and then I just got I got accepted. UCSD I'm like that's basically Ucla but in beautiful beach town sitting actually totally different. Yeah I didn't go visit. I'm like this close enough. I'll just go there and turn out to be the worst college experience for the next five. What about our listeners that are that are alumni of UCSD and love their time there? I just look maybe it's not UCSD. I shouldn't be that biased. I just hated school. I should've dropped out if I wasn't Asian. Islanders dropped out but then you end up. Majoring taught ECON ECON. Because that's the easiest major. That's still please you Asian parents. So I'm like okay. Get this ECON degree done. And I'll say have done it and I'll figure my life and you just did. It wasn't like a two point seven. GPA who point seven GP class. I was depressed and still going to seven. Oh smoking we just show up at the final cram like a week before. I never learned anything. Because he's crabby forget about it and I go to get past a class at even through that though. Oh Your Dad. Gets you an internship. Doing what some financial advising stuff Smith Barney like a really. I was for real high end. Yeah farm it's like every Asian Para stream like people other kids Hoping they'll get this intervention but a month in. I just hated the Smith Barney job like I just I was like I was having panic attack. I'm like I'm GonNa be sitting behind a desk for the next forty years. Managing other people's mutual. I don't care about a- I can't do this. I was panicked. That was scary to me than trying how to pursue the arts going into annot really because getting stuck seeing my life rotting away for shore is scarier than the unknown So for me. It wasn't a choice. So then how'd you go from there to comedy to act. I just had to try different things to get out of this job. When was the first? Oh you did. After the job. It wasn't comedy was never like I mean I watch. Comic van loved it. But it wasn't like oh I watch Eddie Murphy raw brother. When I was kid I need to be a stand up is has never that it was just I needed to find something to do with my life? I need to find new creative friends media and I was pretty good at talking to people. I was kind of always the funding group but but everybody says that right. Now what if you actually make it. As everybody says that they're funny and everybody says they're beets are good. Look the main matriarch hearbeat also. Some the main prerequisite ah to be in a STANDUP is not talent is not being funny It's desperation Shen. You need it to be that desperate to go on the stage to embarrass. You always say googling. Local Open MIC computer is one step away from cooling. What's the best way to kill myself? Every standup ever met Aghanistan economy. Some happy life. They quit being a lawyer and they got divorce or you got thirty. You either got Algeria and now they want to try stay so you join those ranks. Yeah over Mike at it for a while you are actually paying money to be on stage yourself at the HA comedy club. You get to go stay time. You want at the open Mike every day which is great but you have to pay five dollars to exchange in exchange for five dollars a stage time five minutes. Oh for Yeah Yeah dollar station. That should be my next book five dollars. As though how was that I went to this open mic and I just did it and it was fun it was liberating in a way but my favorite part was literally my first set was talking about masturbation just like every other new comic right. Because you don't know you just you just try survive funny but then people Gimme tag lines other comics. Give me like Yo. You should say this you say that and really found this like group of misfits. Everybody was so weird in their own way. And this is like the only world where the where your the better off you are. Yes so it's like the first time am I felt like I really fit in well and this is the interesting thing that I loved that you talked about at length in the book. You really draw this distinct comparison between acting and stand up. Oh yeah stand up was very gala -tarian and diverse and for everybody as long as they're funny and acting you said quote is like the only only profession where you can actually physically discriminate. Oh yes there night and day. You don't want to audition for that call my manager. I'm like this is a very important movie for A. Yeah I I know I'm usually the quirky you know psychic guy. Whatever but let me just go try to re for the lead role? I don't care like this really special for us and I'm very confident. Offered him acting ability. Let me audition for the LIBRO. Emma manages like look I don't know how to tell you this. But they're looking for a good looking guy for the lead role he said and I totally understood what he meant. We should have fired. Your man like I get it like I'm a fairly decent looking guy in real life life but my type is not looking. chiseled man you fill me like my agent used to always tell me you ever could look and say okay cool. I have a good look. But they're realized having look it's different than being good looking Ryan Gosling is good looking. Me and Luis Guzman. Have you know like I look like computer person are like the college kid. Lewis goes my look like now. Poppy he looks at the truck dealers times in movies right so we have of course rely on on a look where other people are. Just good look at you. I WanNa talk more about the acting world. And how'd you got there briefly. Walk through from you. Just paint paying five dollars to get five minutes of stage time to do comedy to like landing a role on an HBO show like You Kinda struggled in the wilderness for a while. So you were doing this comedy stuff you end up in San Diego again and then you end up by virtue of liking one of your fellow comics you end up. DJ -ING at Strip Club uh-huh. That's true. That is and you wanted to do that. I think everybody that watching too. Much ludicrous music videos. WanNa go work at DJ. Let's him so glamorous like in pop culture in a way especially for stupid twenty two year old kid but the but Aria I worked at it was really seedy is ran by gangsters at the work. Done Christmas like it was it was bad and you know it was really just dark vibe. I was delivering the cashbox to the owner's house. Every night I got shot and Yeah it it was. It was just a bad environment and That was the reason why I had to really leave San Diego. Well because one of your comedy friends like you gotTa get the hell out of there. Yeah like my mentor. Sean Kelly here's like dude. You got to get out like does not you. You're a good kid you know. Go out there back. L. A. and go pursue that and I'm like did you just decide that she wanted on it to try comedy again or do acting or what. I've been doing comedy. Yes I got my chops working in the Comedy Palace At the door and get some states time in San Diego. Dago now I have a good fifteen minutes at this point. Yeah you know but I'm like how am I gonNa make money all my strip clubs savings I'm putting into rent I'm renting this guy's living room from craigslist three bucks a month so I'm like okay. I need to do some commercials. So how how do you do that. How do you become an I have no idea? I don't know yeah so I asked all my comedian friends who's just been on one commercial of an extra of a movie and they were telling me out of tips. Go sign up on all the dotcoms on casting actors access whatever other casting websites put your head shot up there. Yeah put you stand up real up there okay. You know I did that and I got a couple of interviews from really small agencies is right my first agents interview Alma Guy. I WANNA make it. You know that to me was calling me and then I went there. The agency was was an apartment. Rental Office Runaway exactly but I was so desperate I was still trying to impress them they had me read the staples commercial. Okay and are so bad. They're like thank you and never talked to me again. I was rejected by apartment. Rental Office acting agent. That's rough la though the stories of rejection in this town are enough to make you cry exactly and everybody has been to central casting. The first day off that Greyhound bus bus and it would just sad. I was just I home again. I'm like okay. I guess I'll try to grind out a stand up and maybe I should just give up at some point. Go back get a finance job. Then there was one agent one agent very small agency agency in Manhattan beach. Okay and she called me like because she saw my she's the one that said I got a good look uh-huh uh-huh and my okay whatever but I don't know what that means. I met with her as she was very honest she was like look. I don't know and you work but I think you gotta go look from Mississippi shots but don't work out. You don't get coughing now dishes. uh-huh Gossip Royce that once again I got nothing to lose. Sure please sign me. Yeah and start sending me out like she she really believe me. I guess I did have a good look. You know and I audition for like modern family just like to line parts and my commercials that really wanted to audition for but money is running out and and I wasn't book any of these jobs and auditioning is like totally sport and acting on and now I have to put in whatever money I have left. Whatever money earned from doing stand up in acting classes To just kind of know what I'm doing. Maybe naturally I'm a pretty good actor but it's still a science. There's a science to expression edition proselytism language words that you did not know what was the thing that they say. Slate your name your name say your name. What is the slate even mean? They say I don't know I still don't know slate. They say slate your name and you don't know that basically that just means I'm Jimmy O Yang and I'm five six so you do the audition life in the end up auditioning additioning for an HBO pilot which at first was called what it wasn't called so long valley deep tech deep tech. I don't know if this is like top secret but I wrote in my book if the show was called deep tech before I was ever called Silicon Valley. Yeah and do the audition it happens and then you find out once you get the show that the guy that created the show Mike Judge was your commencement speaker. That's my guy at UCSD. And he was one of the big. Inspirations for you made you want to do like finance stuff absolutely. That's crazy right such a whole story. Mike Judge got credit because the king of the hill of course Silicon Valley he was a commencement speaker. UCSD he also under UCSD. Yeah any kind of shared experience. I did I really enjoy college too much. He was a physics major dues. Really Smart uh-huh ah. He had a programming like Computer chips on fighter jet sounded like that But it just hated the whole culture the corporate culture and that's why I wrote office space right. Yeah and then he was like I just need to find a passion So I quit. He quit this job and then came back around found animation. He knew he found that thing that takes and he knew found his passion and just grind it out. You know in a basement in this garage making beavis and butthead making his first and matic and has a loss college student at that moment not knowing what I wanted to do all I knew was. I didn't WanNa do economics but then I majored in. Yeah and this is permission that my parents never never gave me. And I'm like just seeing a living example of a man that I actually know his name from Hollywood. TV shows and movies uh-huh making making it and in the same exact show was went to the same exact college. Yeah it doesn't seem like a far fetched Inspirational Story. It seems like this. This could be. Yeah well you know you have this line in the book and in that story you say part of what might judge was kind of saying was quote pursue to love not what you should absolutely and that's still what I believe in 'cause to me. It's so scary. Maybe it's feared. Let me to it because I'm sure there's a lot of people that settle into job that they should be doing right then. Shame on shame on as people are cool with that and they're very happy doing it. I wish I was that guy okay. I'll have two kids and be very heavy. Prime may maybe happy than I am now but for me it was the fear like I was so scared working behind a desk bound does that. I really could not do it anymore. And as you know that speech that really spoke to me and boom. Five years later auditioned for Silicon Valley. And then it happens and then it happens. It didn't happen right away. You Know I. The part was guest star. Part would three lines or something. I need to call and call me back. That was the second episode. I even fish. The third episode was just missing being no one no like three times. TJ those three episodes in the first season. I got paid nine hundred bucks per episode at Sack Minimum scale so for the whole first season season of HBO's Silicon Valley. You got what twenty seven hundred twenty seven hundred dollars and I used as a down payment on a two thousand six Prius so I can drive uber. staus driving uber taste one or two silicon valley. So do you have the priests. Oh No I gave it to my brother sibling so he could try uber driver now. I've Alexa sle lease entry level. I S two hundred. It's very four cylinder car just a write off. That's why that's why I have one more break here when we come back more about Silicon Valley until Jimmy deals with success all right Barbie support support for NPR and the following message from net flicks. His New Series Messiah. What would it take to make you believe in something crazy when a man starts performing miracles? And I'm saying he's the Messiah One. CIA agent is determined to find the truth. No matter how crazy it may be Messiah streaming now only on Netflix. Hey all before we get back to the show WANNA remind one more time of how you can keep this show coming to you every week by supporting the work of your local. NPR member station Asian to do that go to donate NPR dot org slash samp or. Just text the word Sam to the number four nine six four eight. We'll send you a text message with a link where you can find your local station and make your contribution message and data rates may apply you can visit. NPR DOT org slash s terms for privacy and text message terms for our listeners who are not watching watching Silicon Valley describe character for them so Jinyang the character die play. uh-huh is a Geek Is A computer programmer. It's like everybody else on the show. Yeah and and He's an immigrant also But in a way he's kind of brave and I kind of like can be. He's he's one article wrote this term is that he's kind of like an anti assimilation relation character because for me for so long my life being an immigrant. I try to try as hard as I could to be. American Jing doesn't care. Thanks these cool. The way he is and he's kind of season going becomes kind of evil and I kind of like a pain in the butt for a lot of people okay. So it's it's very interesting to play this. A person who you think is a docile stereotypical immigrant but he actually has a pretty pretty sharp comeback to a lot of things. A in a at a dockside to there was something you said about playing that role. That really stuck out to me like the the the kind of mantra prefer that character. It was it. I don't know anything. Oh yeah so. Here's a shot. The right I yes I don't know and and I always say the mantra sure to myself a mandarin. So we'll put star right which means I don't know because first of all I have to practice thinking a mandarin a little more with this character because I want that accent authentic. I want to sound like one of my uncles. I like my mother. You know. And it's a very specific mandarin accent. It's not just like a cliche Anthony's Bruce Asli accent right so I just wanted to be a real person so every day I go to the Sony Lot to shoot the show I listened to thirteen hundred. AM The station like like an hour. Okay and then. I tried to just thinking mandarin and I was thinking this mantra would stop. Well put star. I don't know I don't think in that. 'cause that's the Bane of existence assistance first of all is demanding. Second of all. It's I don't know either hash it doesn't know what's going on like me back in the day one was met or he actually just doesn't care you know and it's probably like I mean I'm sure that so much of the immigrant experience when there's a language barrier is just being frustrated that people don't understand you exactly and what's great eight of our Jing. He kinda doesn't care that he's like you know. Frustrated and other people and a lot of the jokes even eat the fish seen what. TJ's character which became my Momma says on the show and we create dynamic When he gets mad at me doing certain things? The joke's on him being an impatient. You know buffoonish inishbiggle American Guy Jingyi Kinda gets the upperhand throughout the seas and I kinda love it. You don't have to fight fire with fire. He just very chill. It's it's a it is a subversive portrayal of an emigrant. Yes it like. He knows what the Hell's go. He knows what's going especially this this season as he Yeah he he gets Kinda evil too. Yeah Yeah did you expect the show to be as big of a hit as it is did did you A. How's it been not at all? When I first auditioned for it? I knew Mike Judge's like serious business but I don't. It's good sturgis. So many TV programs programs out there like so many shows like everybody's like almost a series regular show now but there's so many shows that don't watch and I'm so fortunate that this this is a show that gets attention from the war circuit and people actually watching and this is my first show. I count my blessings every day and it's it's been incredible and it happened really fast. Yeah but also happened when I'm a little older than happen when I was twenty. Yes so I was a little I. I know what's going on. I didn't let it get to my head and my issue was not knowing what to do with myself. Like what do you mean like. I still have pretty low self. Oh for steam. I still try to go to Ross instead of like nostrum and nothing wrong era you know like this in Nordstrom rack top Nordstrom any GD. I've never bought anything except for those pair of pants I bought for the Arsenio Hall show. I got a lunch one day at the restaurant. But that's what Nordstrom rack is the jam Ross's the gym. You can't hold onto that. Go to Nordstrom Nordstrom rack literally so so you're still trying to convince yourself that you're worth it. Yeah and this year has been gone better like because I I'm doing more other stuff that's not just because this is one thing that I started off such a small part I still in a sense. Think that I'm that guest star side actor whenever I see myself but then you know I wrote the book. I'm in a couple of movies. So that Kinda as an artist myself esteem is rising a little bit. Yeah you know. And it's starting to match like who I am which is Great. You know so. I know that there are a lot of people listening who probably feel or have felt the same way a little bit of imposter syndrome. This give folks some advice on getting through that well first of all. It's good to have imposter syndrome okay. It's fine it keeps you humble okay and it keeps you that that that Wonderman that all that we talked about earlier when I first came to America like every time I go to emmys after party. Yeah I see Bryan Cranston. And they all like whoever like Jon Snow Kit Harrington Yeah. I'm still fan going on inside and that feels good. That feels great. You don't want that to go away and the best fillon was a for example. Can John. I've been a fan of John and I wanNA visit his show. Dr Can which is now unfortunately cancelled and he fan boy over me more than I. It was like freaking out inside and train. He grabbed his wife train. He was like come on. Come over is Jimmy. We've got to take a picture. Jimmy and that is the coolest fillon ever you. You don't ever want that to go away you know so. It's Kinda good to live in that imposter syndrome and to approach this as an outsider. Instead of you know saying I'm Hollywood. I deserve this. I'm yes I like. You know it's good to know that artistically maybe in your craft you're as good as some of these people and that's why here and be confident with your craft but keep that sense of wonderment. I like that. I'm sure that what must also help you kind of get to a place of satisfaction is like knowing that your dad is a bit more supportive port of you now so much slightly you even so supportive that you even got him in a movie. Yeah tell that story. My Dad started acting yeah. I don't know if it's out of support. It's a little bit out of spite. He was like Oh. It's so easy you can do it. I could probably do it because I'm sure just like everyone else deep down. There's always always want to be an actor but you know just like how he taught me he didn't think it was possible. Well also because like in Hong Kong in China. You can't just get up been been actor. It's different acting. There is no such thing as stand up there really exactly so he couldn't conceptual redoing for awhile right. He still stand up a talk show. That's not thing backend today in China so he was like so easy. You can do it I can do it. I'm like okay. You know what this is a perfect time for me to show you. How hard acting is okay? I'll hard to audition price. Okay Tacoma Tacoma Asia. I'm like do you need an Asian person roster wait wait stop right there. One that is unbelievable to be. You've got to be like my dad's work what's still the smaller agent right. Yeah so I'm like my dad has look so. Can You just say that Your Dad's not good looking. I didn't say that he had to go. Look okay so Do you send them out commercial just to teach them a lesson shoes. Yeah you know what actually I could use an Asian or Asian. Do because there's only a two old Asian people in Hollywood right so that could have been like one of the preeminent Asian dudes and the plan completely backfire because he started booking everything he booked his first four out of six audition which is unheard of. He ended up in the show. Those popular back in China. Yeah he ended his show called a big daddy. That like is is like one of the most popular shows in China. When it shot it wouldn't think much of it because we'd never show Washington China? My aunt called our house here in in in L. A. and Richard. You're so good in the show. Your son must've taken after you. Did you teach him how to come on. Man It was all it is easy so you were actually in a movie together Patriots Day which is about which is about to down Thirteen Boston marathon bombing the tragedy and the heroes and victims of it. Like it's really a heavy movie and it's my first dramatic role and you play a really pivotal role. So in the movie I play the Sky Done Mang. WHO's also Chinese emigrant and he Kinda Save the day? He's the unsung hero of that marathon bombing because he he got carjacked and kidnapped by the terrorist. Brothers and he made a brave heroic escape at gun point he just jumped in. The car ran out to a a gas station that has called. And that's how they let the police to track down that car tracking down to two terrorists and I was so proud to play that role and Hotan. Oh Tom Paper the director and Mark Wahlberg starting to produce it was like we gotta get this right. This movie is not about us. It's about the heroes in a big and we gotta get everything authentic and right. Yeah yeah so I get to hang out with Danny done Ming. Every day I was in real life. Yeah and how's bugging him about what happened. It was so nice. And he's one of the kindest people ever so I was just want to get it right. And then there's a scene with him Skyping what his dad back home in China or his parents and that the cast. It had a Cantonese Cantonese accent when he spoke Mandarin. Now this is a no no right like to American audience or they wouldn't know what's going on but to me if I'm GONNA keep authentic. Yeah I WANNA make it my job to keep it off one hundred and what I know right so I want to. I'm like this guy speaks Mandarin Cantonese accent. It's just not right and in a mom speaks in. A different accent speaks proper Mandarin. Yeah and here's okay good. Let's get your new dad. I'm glad says How am I pete? I'll sit and poor guy so then I sat at the casting sessions. UH-HUH I offer Pete. Sit In sit in your candidate sessions. And I'll make sure you you know the person's authentic and I had this lightbulb. I'm like you know what. Why don't you guys just cast my dad He's a he's an actor. Yeah relax and he. He speaks Mandarin very authentically and then it was like done. Get Him out here and I got my dad. His First Union Sag job that is some full circle so you go from having a father. That is mad that you don't become like a doctor or an engineer. Refinance Guy Magic doing standup Maja trying to act. And then he is is in a movie with you because I hooked him up gotTa Hook it up.

well didn't didn't Benny off Jeff just just one the highest of them all prize comment as pretty accurate I don't know why all these mother talkers stonewalled me on it also joining us today because he was in the Green Room and we had an extra Tehran stage and that's my solution instead of getting rid of the extra chair just make somebody else be a last minute guess it's Chad opens every body Heidi will say this before we get started that if if you win any of the Games today I would like you to immediately do a victory lap the feeling I say yeah and now I know I am here the from the audience if

of these shows at the very least joe hang out for a few minutes I'll let you I'll let you touch my beard three free tickets to an upcoming show yeah I don't know the real figured out three winner has to make friends now to the winner getting their tickets turn around and be like who needs to do you where do you think makes them they're just going to be like who needs three yeah one out of three I got three tickets they're here by themselves they could probably use the dough is San Francisco it's true it really is Jimmy what are you have in your pocket for the for the occasion unlike friend next next to me I came prepared not to be you're going to be honest not to be too stereotypical but I was eating lunch at Chinatown today I and I saw this beautiful pipe probably for opium not sure you know perfectly Doug's crowds right you want to give it a shot there you go is that that's that hits it's Rowbotham one opium pipe for me yeah I mean added Value Jeff tested it and what did you bring Jeff I brought to start with the entertainment weekly's fall TV preview gloves fall TV read it read it already I already know it all don't need it anymore enjoy that fucking homework and I gotTa Todd Snider Patch Oh yeah yeah that's cool I mean just look up todd snider down and a Tom Petty Button pulled them out in the right order yeah that really hit built a big big finish all of that is going to be somebody to deal with at the end of today's show but before we get to the Games since this is the final of the scary movies trilogy the of Twenty Nine thousand can you recommend go in any order because this is a tough question for some people people can you recommend scary movie yeah you know what I really like his what lies beneath you do yes I really into that I think I think it's just a good little scary movie that a little fun fact that while waiting for Tom Hanks to grow a a beard and get skinny exact same crew they shot the first part stew and then and then they took a break for him forest ran off it took a break for him to get island out Damascus took the entire crew they just picked up started in the southern movie got done with what lies beneath and then pick back up and castaway Roy I would have preferred to good movies I I didn't like either of those there well-produced yeah what lies beneath has like a jump scare every ten minutes and they're never scary come on through he's just loud loud and nothing nothing happened you know what I mean it's always like it's not really a ghost making we've got me like every time or husband come home he's he's like sneaks up behind her to be fair I was in a farm in the middle of nowhere during a thunderstorm watching it we're talk which might have helped but either way I really enjoyed it you know like she's looking at yourself up in the mirror and then suddenly Harrison Ford they're all of a sudden he's like don't get cocky dude you scared me again take sounds pretty scary you imagine Harrison Ford Creeping on unit house yellow things out of nowhere that's terrifying I watched a lot of it recently again and was really entertained by how nuts it is and but also I could not remember exactly what the final twist is I know what the logic near the end twist is well Chris it's like a joke if you think you've heard before they you know when you don't recognize it till they get to the punching so as soon as I see the ending probably will be mad all over again so don't remember number I don't remember thinking it was the most airtight ending to that movie but I am going to seek out and watch any or at the very least read read the synopsis on the Internet or I'll tell you if you are you could tell me yeah we'll explore all those options later but you know still well it's never too early to start get movies to watch for next Halloween so in addition to what lies beneath what do you think Chad what's the one that you like ooh there's one I think is really underrated called session nine I don't know if anyone's seem not one one human being and if you don't think it's I think it's legitimately adamantly like super scary but then also has the best utterance of the words fuck you ever in a movie in my opinion so if you just look on Youtube David Caruso Fuck Fuck you you'll get to see magic because he really puts fuck you he really goes for it and it is beautiful the fall so yeah you don't usually hear that much emphasis on the U. part drags it out Marion Yeah Ah low he's a ghost go saying late goes ghosts spoiler alert okay session nine who's in it beside thank him whose and they're not GonNa be like Peter Mullen Peterman Scottish actor anyway no one cares Josh Lucas Jaakko oh yeah of course he's an only terrible movies then you'll love obsession that guy is a perfectly good actor but I can't think of a good movie than he's in he's in two different movies called stolen that's a true fact what they made one in the middle of the other right one guy was trying to get fat or something I forget Dan Jimmy can you think of a good scary movie to recommend I'm I'm not really into like the scary movies go select supernatural things really actually scares me this count the cloverfield lane the movie that was kind of scared credible film with John Goodman and I love those things I love movies I e the set inside of just one location when you know like room or something like cloverfield or set it within the one day something like Dr Very thrilling I love thrillers more than anything so I think yeah cloverfield lane that's what it's called you like suspense and not horror yes yes I don't like jump scares and goes and stuff actually scared like I can't sleep for like two weeks as well you know this the club is haunted right Oh God it's goes goes to huckleberry Finn you see he's Corncob pipe floating around for a paintbrush you know it's up to us up to his thing what was the address though that movie ten ten cloverfield thing yeah that is a good movie though I like Jazz I think frailty it's very scary was that the one that was Bill Paxton he directed it yeah yeah hey to various Avocado Kakada hey powers boothe quality quality quality film about Religious Abuse Abuse so pretty scary Oh yeah we'll speak in a scary now I can't if they go on it's called but there's that Walton Geoghegan's snake preacher movie where there's just always somebody's about to get the puck and bit by a snake and it's it's really upsetting yeah now I carry gemstones yeah that's go the Unicor yeah that's so looks like such a waste of everybody's time if Walton goggles isn't playing somebody fucked up he's playing like a regular guy what's the point yeah but I'll think of that title Caitlyn Devers favors in a gym gaffe against in very serious role but you still laugh because it's Jim Gaffe again yeah but it's those does snake preachers Jeff Jeff knows what I'm talking about I mean I've never actually I just came pretty close to the snake preachers I never really saw one well you got close enough to notice that you were close to some trying to seeing that I tried to go to one of those churches in Cincinnati but they're not they're not a real welcoming group they just assume if you're new you're from vice in the US trying to sell it too now I'm into it I love snakes in God come on I heard you guys did both anyway anyway frowns it's pretty scary when already said that yeah glad you repeated it because I do believe that that is a scary them that follow them make movie yeah so if that sounds fun do you check it out okay so we did it we

quickest wins cor the two that we like on this show loudly gaskill why or how I don't know how you're going to do the US up to do it for the listener at Home Jeff is not trying to open any candy he is ready for this chef is is really ready I made further listener home I I can't get this open I quit I quit try before I knew what the next game was gonNA gotta be I need scissors but there's no way anybody got a knife in here t douglas movies there's three nine in this audience I saw one guy over here childproof fat which we all of us oh you really can't open that I really can't here Jeff I'll

that I never had a dad and I'd love to play Catch Dan my dad's dead what do you WanNa play with three triangle I only catch if it's little bags of candy that's what I thought we were talking about all right here we go I just got I stood up and came over here to get away from anybody but just to Wanna be able to see all their faces official yeah I just want to be captured the moment when one of you gets this full title say it slowly slowly and I mean every time anybody guesses I'm going to start back at the beginning the Hor- great progress but no progress us when you're about to do something progress from what I'm about the figured out how to use it I progress right like this the opposite of digress I get it I could see I could live live here the the book is there in Green Book Notebook it's just green board so that narrows it down a little bit the living living dead dead the living to living again the living with these are movies the title of one movie Got Through the whole title Oh yeah the living dead at the the living dead at the Manchester morgue that is that is so so on laugh this way I would have to now he's getting circles pass out here he goes oh wow the grass that was good Chad if you win a game again yes go down the stairs really do a lap yeah okay really follow his practice round I wouldn't call that an official yet there's still more winning to do and then he's going to do that again it's the new throwing doughnuts it's the new thing that the listeners just have to deal the high five when you go look now feels being a good audience member give me one of these guys now they know you gotta earn a Buck I mean that guy should know that he's in the middle to get high five you never know I think Chad and make it their Dundee those tables and I think that just by looking at audience member you can tell whether or not they're touching their hand would be a bad idea I think everybody here looks Berkeley like everybody looks like just wash their hands my bet you only half did not everybody really who who do you think has dirty hands bill well yeah he made a poster about cannibals artists always always have dirty hands right I just touched his nose and bartenders always as they do alcohol Oh aw more in the class and out on their hands just happens I'm not high five and Wolverine he's got fuck in large knives coming out of their attracted God Chad don't you know anything I guess not Chad am I right right have they ever done on robot chicken a scene where Freddy Kruger and Wolverine Play Rochambeau Call San get him on the Horn Greenspan oh really just call them colts got your your number from damping Kirk he's all right with that what what you're dug why wouldn't he be that's true no I'm not calling him on here on a good idea the nineteen eighteen ninety one tgif audience into work you and served every they got especially since it was only one at a time that's why they became huge people just just so excited to see two of them at once right I and Elizabeth just laid in wait for her time to God's ever guys take the early part of our life I'm GonNa crush sure this in the she's sitting back there with Oliver powers to move shit an interesting case study what would happen if you learn how to act we're we're talking about Rambo the Rambo never stopped talking about applaud if you saw the most the recent Rambo God I was hoping we'd just be just but it's Jeffersonville they told you how they work out for you I saw the day came out in an empty theater are yourself more credit you were there I was there it was real stupid it was very dumb an an incredibly violent and that's what it should have been called very dumb and incredibly violent and that'd be like they'd cut your review for the ads it would just be

really so you so you what's what back to you Chad the motion picture that started off saw did it make more or less than seventy million dollars just not the next yeah it makes it better well it's good when they disagree with everyone's yelling the same day hey I guess they made me think of the early days of the price is right before the audience was comfortable yelling out and they would just be like one person that was like I think it's worse it sounds like a ghost right it's a very spooky the episode you guys one Guy Seventy six the for the the first person was so adamant I'm saying molest very adamant that it was less than sued really and she it made fifty six million dollars not even close I thought I would have made a get out like it's time how they call it costs like fifty bucks to make took place in one location yeah yeah and that was a New Orleans Canada saw it I don't like movies about tools or that are in the past tense definitely wouldn't like vice nope nope nope never saw it because it's about tools and in the past we're going to Jimmy and the movie as the original I'm sorry I don't know the year but it was another one back then and the amityville horror Ooh seventy-nine gentleman and the audience says because it's this is favorite sexual practice that's when you lay still I mean that's a pretty good one bad yeah it's a lot easier than eighty I uh-huh okay eighty two million Jimmy more or less for the amityville horror with I is less right like seemed eight that's a lot but but also this could be like a red hearing situation getting the number so high it's still hired I'm GonNa Go Lor you're saying it made less less than eighty two million so what's the adequate lady think what how she's crazy you make the movie holy Shit Nineteen Seventy Nine Doug Higher What are you going with Jimmy I'm going to go lower man okay you're wrong trust lady what the exact number yeah I seriously but it was it was not quite one hundred twenty five million it was eighty six dollars away did you say eighty nine or eighty eighty eighty four to eighty two we said seventy nine when the guy in the audience that a lot of numbers jokes thrown around like a Beautiful Mind said scary beautiful mind I feel like I'm in the theatre watching a beautiful mind like a little like I recognize all these people but I'm not sure what's happening all right so jeff it's your turn we're talking rocking Boo Amadiyah Halloween from twenty six eighteen thought that was an important year to write down for some reason jeff did it make more or less than eighty million in dollars I mean it's fun I love to how people when we can't see doing the most yelling people's faces we could see they don't want to commit nobody's really sure if they should it feels like I'm GonNa say what did you what was the number you gave I don't know I'm going to say you know what I'm GonNa say more more that is incorrect Oh made seventy three I'm going to save more thing to wearing orange you didn't let me finish all right Dan this is exciting this is two players left's you gotta get this the movie is say what Okay so you know that game with the Little Guy Amount and he falls

convention everybody gets touch that's aw that's when you say remember to say that was for people full disclosure I'm still reeling from the way responded to chance I guess yeah aw yeah that was a trip we all went on it together I felt like a Kubrick film as mixing up more or less with over or undertake it could really limited anyone who anyone listen to this that's that's the question so we'll diane thanks thanks name okay so to determine winner let's let's get serious let's stop screwing around let's play last man or woman stanton I thought about this I saw on twitter again you're being so inclusive Manner Women Stanton we represent people who I love the show when we play this so what if he just in one fell swoop just called it last Fan Stanton because we're representing the fan but

Recorded live at Corolla one studios with Adam Corolla and board certified physician and addiction medicine specialist. Dr drew Pinski. You're listening to the atom and Dr drew show. Yeah. I get it on got to get on a judge on the mandate. Get it on thanks for tuning in. And thanks for telling a friend. We love that about you. Right. Drew, man. What's going on that? I wanted to talk to you about that Cambridge Analytica storage. You see that with that company in the UK? That is a seems US company based in Delaware, at least for the corporation registered there where they buy data, and then use it to manipulate people in places like Facebook and social media, and I don't know the story tell me, well, it's complicated story here that that Facebook was being scrutinized for releasing lots of data about the users, and it's it's very complicated. But it's becoming increasingly clear that these social media. Platforms and services that we want to use for free make their money by selling our data. That's how they make our money their money and people are now outraged that that that is getting the hands of people that want to manipulate elections. And we apparently we have companies that do exactly what the Russians are accused of doing. Casick hire them President Obama used a company like that Trump is accompanied on Rick Rick. Okay. Riquesa course cost ya Paulino. Poor Scopus husband. Yes. Yeah. Weird reference. But. You know in these. So it's just in the news, right? As in the vapors. I was talking to a guy that's an expert of this. And he was saying that you can't even the government can't to hearings about it. Because he's politicians choose. This his words too stupid stand the questions asked right that they don't have any understanding of what this is. And it's complex, and it's about I it's something about selling servers and selling databases, and this is how these companies make money, and nobody is controlling it. And I don't see anyone from the company stepping up. I just wonder if you thought on what we should do with this sterban to me. It is Jimmy o Yang from Silicon Valley. Maybe he'll have something. Yeah. The NF. You can ask him about it. I feel like I feel about almost everything which is moderation and. You must. I don't say. You must unplug your device six hours a day or you must do this. Or you can't do it on the Sabbath or anything anything of that nature. But when I go home, I shut my phone, and I don't turn it on. Yeah. It's not on one at home. I check some tweets, and I see some emails, but what you click on stuff gets sold. And. Yeah. And your information gets somebody. I don't I don't have strong. When that see I have little to no self esteem. So I don't really have any thoughts about my information. Who has let me let me tell you this Cambridge liquor work. So they then got your information. And they would send you a questionnaire that looked like it came from an academic institution. We're doing a psychological test. Would you mind participating and you into filling out some questions that they end up somehow, then tapping into your base even further. Further figuring out your friends, and then accesses the friends data as well. Now, that seems a little diabolical doesn't it? But remember, it's not it's not like some too hyperbolic genus is wiring their way into your computer, you filled out the paperwork, you did it. Well, the human part of this is extraordinaire, that's how that's how the Democratic National Committee got hacked, somebody filled out a form or click on it something. There's a there's a couple of things. First things first few shows back. I was singing gonna go. See miss lives. Sippy. Right. Yeah. Now, you said what he talking about? And I was thinking what am I talking? I'm pretty sure I'm talking about a Woody Allen movie from the sixties, and then Gary got on the internet, and he showed us that clip of Woody Allen singing that song from that scene from the movies in the sixties and any he he transferred from his computer to the flat panel TV. That's if you had done that in nineteen eighty even nineteen ninety I would've just would not do it myself. Yes. So we did not have that ability. Right now, that's free. Or is it free xactly? Nothing's free. Nothing's free because there's no such thing as a free business. Now, there's you can say oh that newspapers free the guy handed out on the corner. That's a free newspaper, and you go it's free. Yeah. It's free. It is free you price. It's not free to the person who advertises in it. It's free to you. And if they get enough circulation going that can charge the carpet cleaning company, you know, seventy bucks every hundred units that there's handed out or whatever it is. So. Since nothing is free. And I say to myself. Okay. So now, what what would you like would you like to live in a world where you get all this stuff? We're Gary producer, Gary hops, on his computer and moments later in color were looking at the exact same scene. I was discussing moments earlier, and if so and given it's not free than what what how do you want to break this down pay money? But he said about it costs sixty dollars and go, I don't know. I don't think that'd be worth sixty bucks. They said how about its penny? I'd go. Okay. That's fine. And then someone they take a little piece of information. And you get sent a commercial our Gary gets a pieces spam or whatever calling it for what he Allen's next movie because he looked up the Allen moving cornet algorithm. Everyone's going to get. Evans going west and ties for Woody Allen sex. Would that would that be worth it? And I go, yes. And then they go what if this is going to be sold to the IRS, and you're going to be foreclosed on your farm was going to be taken away because somebody hacked into your information, go. Well, no, not that. Yeah. So the answer is maybe there's also a multi tiered system where you could have a Netflix type system or for sixty dollars a month. We don't do your dad, blah, blah, blah. So you can opt in her out. Well at this point. I I'm not that. I know it's all the talk. But for me, personally, I don't get a lot of this. And I'm not interested in a lot of it in terms of who's going to tell me which way to vote or influence me or who's going to get me to buy a double bacon Nater burger down at at Wendy's or something laughable. I mean, I know they have metrics that show that it does affect. People's behavior. But I never people try to persuade me with drug reps and things like that. It's just laughable to me, I go the opposite way. Typically, well, also, they we also conveniently whatever like when they talked about, you know, hey, when James Comey came out with that news, you know, that news. That press conference just just before the election dramatically swung now. It didn't swing it. Moved a little and the next day was sort of back, and you go. Okay. That's right because. If you don't know anybody who would change their vote from Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump because of the Komi press conference giant swaying from Hillary to Donald right? It would be a grand self. You've never if you don't know anybody are never heard of. Anyway, it's the thing that Dennis Prager. Always kinda says, which is either the data supports what you already know. Or it's not true. If you think to yourself, I don't know human being would have gone from him to her or from her to him based on commes news his press conference. If I don't know a person, and I can't picture that person. I don't think it. I don't think there was a swing. But anyway, all right. So drew. I'm not worried about it. But are you worried about it? No. It's just the press so much along with this guy. Today tech guy seem to explain it to me. And I didn't understand was was issue. It's such a weird story. But of course, it's all Trump. But if the election, but of course, then they found it every politician is doing this. And I just makes me wonder if we're bothered by it. What are we gonna do about it? Or are we buy it? I'm not bothered. All right. Why don't we get Jimmy o Yang? And we'll bring him in Silicon Valley coming up, by the way seasons. Five Marissa already premiered.

How to American immigrants guide to disappointing. Your parents one of our favorites could see Jimmy gray. Again, I practically live here. Now, I've been here three times in the last week. I think really the last two Jost joke Horace podcast, here course. And I just went down the street and watched a movie now back all this book towards Jimmy. And I were hanging out Sunday night. The holders birthday. It's our buddy at the prince would love this place. The prints Korean food and bars, and nobody bothers you old rundown. Like, he had the most random people first of all there's at bar imagine a period bar with the red boots and everything it's very colonial. But it's owned by Korean served Korean food is very weird. They're like the two most famous Druce, Dr Andrew Carey was there the clown was there grove in. Who wrote everybody loves Raymond like Frejus has like the most interesting friends. He's an interesting nice group and also ready for his birthday and Fred eight white noodles. The order just plain noodles with nothing drew when you're weird like is there. Cure for everything that you're timeout, psychologically. But there's weird guys. I mean like nor MC Donald. Yeah. Is there a cure for nor McDonnell that would have to be like CAIR coached up moved by movement? Almost you know what? I mean, you're not gonna change that. It's so everyone's like, oh, we love norm norm super funny. Norm. Super town you go like, oh, why don't we do that thing with norm? He doesn't drive. Dr he doesn't drive but character I feel like they feed into that themselves. So they can be funnier as comedians characters. Right. Like definitely does that. I think a little bit, except if you bring it if you actually talk about I think they're hurt by that's true. They don't think they're weird. But they're trying to be weird at the same time. They're playing they could be funny. Do you think it hurts them if you knowledge this through not at a nice way? But if the way we just talked about, nor nor text to be wants because we were talking like this. And he was like, hey, man. I thought we were friends. Yeah. Yeah. We are got upset. Well, they they should be the first one that's their weird. But you know, it's funny because I there's there's many parts of life. I don't get. But somebody said norm MacDonald doesn't know how to drive and people love Norman I- together, we're often mistaken for one another. But they love us together. I said Fred normally here's this show. Okay. Coming together. I said look why don't we just load up the car with go pros, and we sell it to net flex. It's called Adam teaches norm to drive. And we just go through town. We pontificates excuse. To ramble on about everything. But I'll teach him driving them. And so good ideas. You do that. It's like, yeah. But we can't because that would mean norm would have to come. He's do you'd have to get in a caller. Can't. I don't know we won't it just can't happen because norms norm. So what I'm saying you got to get to certain level to be like, I don't drive because the rest of us have to figure it out. I can't I don't drive. So I'm not going to go to this. You know, how how does that work through? Because we've all I think I think those people rely heavily on the sort of acceptance slash generosity generosity, and thirty of others like I'll give you a real good example. We'd all have had that friend who was cheap it Kevin being Frank Murphy was cheap super cheap and idiocy and Craddock than producer Frank Murphy. And so like there were things. He like he had his USA today, and it would sit on his desk. And if you needed a sports page, you couldn't go touch francs that was that was his and I'd say like what's a slide out the sports page. Look at slide it no, no, no. You don't touch his, you know, food trash in his trash can even if you took gum and wrapped it up in a piece of paper, and he was super cheap. And after a while you'd go out to breakfast after the show, and it'd be like, all right? Who's paying for Frank this while we all pool, our it's like, no one ever want. Hey, forty two year old guy with the mustache. Why don't you pay for you friendly? He just stab list. That's who he is enabling being weird as a privilege though. Like an assistant cannot just like I'm weird. And you know, I don't pay for this. And that you gotta work your way up to being I think it's true. And maybe it's also kind of a first world thing I'm gonna have somewhere quirks on every morning. I wake up before I can function. I need a blowjob. Yeah. Or just a quirk you hear the calling. He hasn't been up for almost eleven hours. I plan to be of service. So. Did it work? I see I don't think this formerly existed. I sat village its own said we're gonna walk to the well with the Nord's at several clicks away. We're gonna you know what I don't do that. But there was horrid on my head. There's always the weird guy weird guys are gals. And that was just that was their identity run. I mean, they were like the village whatever. Yeah. There were the Duckie of their failed. Pretty pink. And so maybe they would sort of canary in the coal mine. Maybe they helped us evolve in some ways see things differently. You know what I mean? Now now thrown Jimmy I was telling Jimmy this the other night, I said Jimmy, you took a lot of years to figure out American culture, and how to navigate and you and I had him or his dad's strangely. So he's little Asian side. And it's true. And I was telling him son give yourself a break. He's in a hurry. Like getting a relationship stuff. He he didn't even figure out how to have relationship. I hate myself up. I'm not in a hurry too. You know? Have relationships this country about five years ago? I'm trying to treat myself like a normal person. You're not gonna normal American not instead of being like, I'm the weird guy that guy you're not to wear a guy. You're the guy that had to come up in a Ryan in a weird place. It's a double edged sword. Right. Because if I try to give myself breaks, I'll probably feel better. But if I did give myself, I probably wouldn't be where I am Dale, right. Just use an accent. Is his dad's? Speaking hundred percent. You're dead. Well, these dads. That's your car, right? Drew? How can you say this? We've we've all come. Let's try to figure this out from families. Yes. There is quite a range in dads and moms at the table here at the table here. I will I will say this let you guys formulate a thought, but I will say this. I sat with three guys like we're sitting now editorial at a restaurant in Pebble Beach for the big car weekend some years ago, and I think the waiter something came by and said like you guys here for the car show or the race or whatever. And we said, yeah, they said why are you guys also into cars just making conversation with I think are attractive chick waitress and the one guy said oh mall. My dad owned a transmission shop, and he always had tools always brought cars home and always worked on them. And so ever since I was a kid. There were cars, and I was working on my dad take me down to the transmission shop. All right. That makes sense. Then the next. Guy said my dad was a car guy was a butcher. He didn't you know car dealership, but he he liked hot rods. And we'd go round on the weekends, and blah, blah, blah. I said, okay, so less we have transmission shopowner than we have like butcher, but the guy dabbled and then there's my dad who's less than zero. When it comes anything mechanical or cars, and I'm not I'm not exaggerating. I mean, he he doesn't own tools. He doesn't know what I own. He doesn't own cars. He'd never seen my car race cars. Can't drive a stick. He does nothing nothing. And I said, and I'm a little more into it than both you guys. So here we are at this table. We have the extreme right? Extreme left in the middle. We all love cars. Nobody in the middle. Right. Well, yeah. The foot guys kind of butcher guys more on the no I would argue the bright left in the middle which with dad's Jesus Christ, drew. Two. One guy's dad owned. A transmission shop the other guys dad was push here. But he breads kid. Yeah. In the middle. He's the what's you with the stories all the time. Can you nod your head? Let's dial writing one guy was extreme. And there's me there's a guy in the middle shaded. The rider laugh is in the mill we all love cars roll at the car thing. And the guy who had nothing probably meet like cars a little bit more. So how do you explain this thing and my answers? I don't think you do. I think you do. That's why I was trying to the point. I was trying to make you weren't you weren't trying to make up which one's the no the middle would be we adad with with not anti zero zero. But that it was like a. You know, the middle's. Here's my point. He said the mills zero DAT because the guy with the butcher still had a together ranch. There's how about just the butcher that was not not present dad. Not maybe he took him doing something else or something. You know, saying you're reacting to not having had anything and those guys are reacting to sharing something with the debt. And let me give an example Howard give any hold on. Let me give you one wise in the butcher in the middle. I he's the. The the middle to me because he also wrench with his dad and somebody would be like that with that in the middle like not really a car guy. He just got from point A point B, but not unpleasant, right? Does that? Does that cars really into cars? He ran a transmission out the other guy liked car, but jobs fine, but he liked to weekend warrior have him in the middle. I have my dad is zero guys is euro one guy's a five the other guys at ten. Why are you guys in the room listening to this semi-retarded conversation? Don't don't do not. So let me let me tell you. But Howard Stern on my dad howitzer in my dad or the exact same dads. I even their voice even their voices when they were older sound like the same guy to me. And I I gave Howard's a mad magazine's shit over for doing that. If you heard that whole piece, but but Email, and he'll and he behaved like my dad would when I disappointed him. And he and he behaved like his dad would treat him when he was boarded. And I played the boy he played the data. We've verse roles even talked about afterwards and is in here. Look at that look at that coupling he ends his dad was eight sound engineer in radio. Yeah. Howard ends up in radio. My dad was a doctor and Dr. So I'm saying that it has some they're some functioning of of what the dads. Do. I'm not saying the dads. Aren't I'm saying, all our dads. Cope. Yeah. Get all land as Kar nuts. When our dads were so different. And how we all land in show business when our dads were very different than I don't know. I feel like we have a zero and my dad he always he always ride he always fills zero the much-needed zero card any of these analogies. My dad show business wise is zero so anything wise says it's genetics in a way if it is so different as their gene that kinda 'cause I know I just couldn't I was having panic attacks.

Four months, maybe and we this was maybe a half a year ago. Now muttering around, you know, after that relationship, I think breaking up with someone you talked about this breaking up with someone people don't realize give you credit for breaking up with someone could be harder than being broken up with its it's horrible. It's interesting wiring thing, which is sometimes her Dennis Prager. Br bring this up, which is would you rather your son be a murderer or be murdered? And right. Think about it. I think I'd rather him be murdered. Like, I can't they're both extreme version there. Yeah. Bad. If fiasco that to my dad before you finish go murdered. Another Senator how much how much does that make your body? They're two different emotional valances. Yeah. But I I would I and so it's a wiring. Would you rather break up with someone or be broken up with an I think I'd rather be broken up with because I it's the worst thing in the world and. I'm going to bet that all three of us have more experience with being broken up with imprinting up with an interesting answer to that. Which is. If you would ask me, do you break up with people or people break up with you? I was at oh every time they break up with me. And so when we're doing the man show, we we're trying to do bit where it's like, we looked up Adam's old girlfriends who dumped them, and then we sort of went oh look at him. Now, he's got a TV show. He's making good money. You get a house and everybody we contacted pay went. Oh, he dumped me. Now, I don't know if it felt to them this way or felt to me this way. But if you said to me, how many how many times have you been dumped versus dumped. Aw, get dumped every time. But if you really sat down into still the down, and really were honest about it and thought about it, you probably did some dumping. It's just your wiring. That makes it there's a lot of dumping that goes on after she cheats, Carol out that goes down to her minded, he dumped me that. That's there's also a you. You basically begging to be dumped for and hoping wants to score with cheat on me, and my buddy call because I was over it. But I didn't want to break up with her. And my buddy colonies, Jimmy. I don't know how to tell you this. But I saw her walking down Hollywood Boulevard with somebody else. I'm just so sorry. My guess, thank you. Thank you. Now. I don't I don't have to be the bad guy. So in that situation. I don't know if I'm dumping her or she stumping me. But honestly, I don't think I've only been in like, I think too serious relationships. That's never lasted over a year. So there's definitely some problems there, wouldn't you? Your mom. So my mom, I wrote about it in my book. It took me a long time to come to terms with it. I think basically my parents got divorced, but Asian people. We don't get divorced because that's shameful. So my mom just went back to Shanghai for ten years because she did have a job in our family didn't need money. So there is that excuse, but I was I think fourteen fifteen or something like that. So in her mind, it's like, okay, let's kids old enough. But in my mind, I think that's probably why you know, I got kinda fucked up do you? I don't know. Drew, you tell me this is what I learned from you guys Fanta bit. We talked about are you date when you date people are they I want today an Asian guy or they just want to date. Anyone is smart witty successful? So view, the more serious girlfriends, it's open thing. It's like open casting a lot of times, they never dated an Asian guy. And I just happened to be the guy that fell in their life. But. There's some I think there's some hey to be made while the sun is shining on the particular time we're living in which is in the past. If you dated outside of your ethnicity or whatever like boy, look those two now some bonus points on the main super like, you're the Quinlan. You're the Cleveland when people go it's a rescue. He's an Asian. There's Asian there. Feticide? Let me social there. He's there the finish. And also, there's if I if I if a girl tells me, she's an anime. I know you're I mean, girl like say ninja assassin a favorite movie one girl once told me that the crow starring Bruce Lee son that ended Branly the crow was her sexual awakening. Oh my God. That night. I was in. But those usually just lead to kinda like hookups his it could get weird like I don't wanna be fetish sized what worse things have sex with them. But you know in a relationship. That's just I don't know. What's give us a schedule for Silicon Valley? It's not bad with shoot like four months out of the year from October to February where are you shooting Sony? So over city for eight months, do whatever, where's my judge in here in LA is he physically he's always done the writer's room or he's directing an episode. He's always there. How well do you know him drew? I don't he is the I know oh, staying brightest hell varieties. He worked as a rocket. Yeah. He's a he was my commencement speaker. He's a physics major from UCSD programming. I think fighter jets back in the day. He did rocket programs or something and fired. It's I mean is he is a genius. But he is a perfect. Example of guy with a little bit of a twang who speaks in a slower canes, and he gets dismissed as like that guy. Yeah. He's a bona fide genius. Yeah. Just because he comes across off shucks stereotyping. There's nobody more stereotype in that these days, right? Jeff Sessions, friendly brilliant guy. Right. But he's I we need to go after this mayor of oh Flynn, and she needs to be prosecuted to the highest degree of the law. And there's was like all right, pumpkin. On your hey, ride.

But lately like they've been treating me like really nice. I have no idea. Why I'm like your Mike judge? What do you mean? You don't know why? But he literally he's so cool of guy. He doesn't think he's Hollywood. He doesn't think he's big time. And that's what's so cool about him. I totally pre. She it that guy totally pre. She it the show.

Comic Jimmy O. Yang On 'The Opening Act'; Google Antitrust Lawsuit

"From. NPR AND WB. Im Tanya XLII I'm Robin Young. It's here and now today early voting began in Texas. Now, the largest county in Texas is bigger than the state of Connecticut but last night a court sided with the state's Republican Governor Greg, Abbott and ruled the state is allowed to restrict ballot drop boxes to one per county as the governor mandated and California Republicans have defending placing what the state is calling illegal ballot boxes in three counties they say they'll remove the label. Official, the state wants them to remove the boxes period. This is all happening as the president is baselessly accusing Democrats of trying to undermine the election's integrity. Meanwhile, in Georgia, voters turned out in record numbers for the first day of early voting but some faced hours in long lines at the polls and technical issues in a state that has been plagued by barriers to voting particularly for black residents joining us. Now, a Stephen Fowler of Georgia Public Broadcasting Welcome Stephen. Always a pleasure. Yes. So many people in Georgia will actually remember the long delays in voting during the primary election back in June. How long were people waiting this time around in what concerns does this race? Let's right. Tanya in the June primary. You had reports of people waiting five, six, seven, eight hours on election day. The last vote wasn't actually cast until the next morning and this time the first day of in person early voting in Georgia you had people waiting as long as eleven or twelve hours in line in some of these Metro Atlanta early voting locations and now early voting there are fewer. Locations spread throughout these counties and more people are usually interested on the first day and also was a state holiday. So many people had the day off. So that's where you're seeing some of these lines forming an actually in all corners of the state, not just in Metro counties who had rural counties to that had hundreds of voters lining up throughout the day. Okay. So election officials worry though that that these delays will continue. Well, I heard from Fulton County election director Rick Baron Fulton is where the city of Atlanta is and he said they've been planning for lines they have been planning. For, people to show up, they've been planning for more people to be interested in this election because Georgia has both US Senate seats on the ballot and as a battleground for the White House. But they do anticipate lines should go down as the days progressed through early voting and then pick back up again right at the end before people last minute get in there. But we have seen a history of non white voters especially in the Metro Atlanta area often end up bearing the brunt of these longer wait times at the state farm arena in Atlanta Georgia's largest early voting site there. Were also some issues with the technology the relatively new voting machines. Similar problems plagued the June primary what have you heard about? Those right so at state farm arena, there are sixty check in computers and three hundred voting machines for people. It's Stora's largest ever site as you said, and for about an hour, those check in computers didn't work officials reset those and moved people quickly through the line elsewhere there have been problems poll workers getting things set up with a check in computers or using the touch screen voting machines that some critic say at unnecessary time and stress to the voting process. This is incredible turnout. I. Mean, of course we'll have to see what happens over the next few weeks but do you have any sense of whether the surgeon voting might actually help a certain party or candidate? That's right. Tonya the turnout is incredible. We also are seeing a record number of Jordan's requesting and returning absentee ballots. Than six hundred, thousand votes have already been cast here in Georgia and election watchers say this surge is maybe going to help Democrats have a competitive edge in Georgia where it's going to be a razor thin margin according to some election data about a quarter of the votes that have been cast already are people who didn't participate in the two thousand. Sixteen special election. So it's really going to come down to turnout. I. Know It's Cliche but there's just an unprecedented amount of energy here in Georgia and we're going to see starting November third when the results come in what that actually is going to look like you've been covering politics and voting for quite a while what what are you looking forward? To as voting continues, well, the things I'm going to look at our the turnout for numbers in Atlanta suburbs. There's too competitive, US House races they're full of voters that kind of. Turned away from the Republican Party and so those will be the deciding factors for both houses and both US Senate seats, and so we're going to see where people show up and if those people show up in the suburbs, it'll most likely be democrats and that could end up being a game changer for Georgia that Stephen Fowler reporter with Georgia public. Broadcasting thank you so much. Thanks for having me. Well across the US new cases of covid nineteen are up nineteen percent from just two weeks ago. Public Health experts are concerned there watching that second wave, a virus crest in Europe. Meanwhile, president trump is now back on the campaign trail at a rally. In Florida, last night saying he has beaten the coronavirus. Through it now they say I'm immune I can feel I feel. So powerful walk into that order. I'll walk in there on kiss everyone in that audio. I'll kiss the guys in the beautiful women and Every mile just give you a big factors big that kiss Dr Jennifer nozoe is leading demutualised for the John. Cove nineteen testing insights, initiative and. A. Couple of questions here is the president's Dr Shawn Conley who says the president has tested negative for the coronavirus but help us understand. Can you test negative right after being sick as he was and still be shutting virus and infecting people? Yeah. I think what that test was really aimed at trying to establish whether the president was going to be contagious. But what he was talking about was whether he's immune we really don't know. Much about whether you are immune after becoming infected in fact, there was just a report yesterday if somebody who is infected twice in the second infection was worse than the first and so that's really something that we have to worry about. So I, don't think anybody who hears the president should at all be reassured that just because they had it. Means that they can't have it again or that they can't give it to somebody and that I think is a really worried on the Russian. Right. This was a twenty, five year old in Nevada. Who got it twice and there are cases elsewhere outside this country of people who seem to have gotten it twice if all the testing is to be believed and so maybe you can test negative maybe even have antibodies meeting that you fought off covid nineteen, and so you're saying this might mean that you may not be completely immune you might be. Able to catch down road. Yeah I mean we think that there's probably gonNA be some level of immunity, but perhaps the immunity can can wayne with some time. We're still very much learning and we don't know if. Report is sort of a a one time occurrence in a small number of or something that others can can expect. But I don't think anybody should take away that you know just because they've had it before they know someone who had it before that that means that there are completely safe that would be quite an interesting conclusion. Well I'm sure you're watching these clusters that are coming Wisconsin serious outbreaks, the University of Alabama for instance, what do you think is this just we didn't really snuff out the first wave or is this the beginning of second way? Yeah so we are you know I. Don't usually talk about waves as dadar rolling in. reason to think that we are still a first wave is that we never really went down to baseline in the same way that maybe some other countries did what we've seen that we've had a few dips here and there, but the dips quickly rose again and I think what is more likely happening is we're seeing effects. So you know tastes numbers rise and people get concerned and the new restrictions were put in place, but then after some time people begin to. Relax those restrictions and the case numbers come right back. Well. We're looking at New York, city, the daily cases they are just hit five hundred again that's the first time since June some of the outbreaks there have to do with the Ultra Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn, for instance, refusing restrictions but are you also thinking about fall cooler months people indoors with air trapped there. I think most epidemiologists are really worried about the fall want because of that. It just that the weather our ability to socialize made a little bit easier if we can keep it outside and the weather gets cooler, it obviously becomes a lot harder to do that. But we're also worried about the fact that people are tired and they're really just WANNA be loved ones and friends, and so it really becomes hard to adhere to the public health messages to kind of keep your distance and limit your contacts and so those things put together fewer outdoor options and people really naturally wanting to get together unfortunately creates a situation where we could see CPI's in cases. Will the other day Dr Burks of the Task Force said that even families and people who live together who might have thought of themselves as a pod when you are in homes and in places together, you should still wear a mask. Do you agree? That's true. I think the challenge with the pod is that not everybody has the exact same. some folks go to work some folks do have some social interactions outside of the pot so that always raises the possibility that somebody could become infected when they were, you know doing something else and one way to reduce the likelihood of spreading it to others to keep your distance and wear a mask and do all those measures that we always talk about These measures are You know we apply them in a layered effect and they they served to reduce your risk and you know. I, think. There is some danger just assuming that You. Know you're completely safe just because it's your family. And by the way, just briefly, we know Johnson and Johnson just announced their heating pause on one of their vaccine trials but that could mean the systems working right. That's what you're supposed to if someone gets sick as they did. Absolutely correct exactly. If it shows the clinical trial are working when you see an event. Stopped. And make some bit, and hopefully, we'll hear them. you know more information about what happened. Dr, Jennifer knows of Johns Hopkins covid nineteen testing insights initiative. Thank you. Thank from our. Jimmy O Yang is a standup comic who starred in the TV show, Silicon Valley and the movie crazy rich Asians in his new film. The Opening Act Jimmy o Yang plays will chew a cubicle dweller at an insurance company whose dream is to become a stand up comedian. But without some paying gigs, no one will take him seriously. Then one day a friend and fellow comedian him the opportunity to open at a Pennsylvania Improv and we'll hesitates why these claims to file shift. Contain is a made man. He's the manager and he books not only the Pennsylvania Improv but twelve more clubs also chatty Cathy and word will get out to all the other clubs figure skating. It's a small world figure skating will chuck's insurance to follow his dream but what follows will make him wonder if he's ready to be a comic, the Opening Act Opens in theaters on digital on-demand. This Friday and joining me now is jimmy o Yang. Welcome to hear now hello. Hello. Soothing. I feel like my voice it's probably very jarring to your audience. No No. We should start by saying that. Of course, you're much further along in your career then we'll. Your comedy special good deal is on Amazon prime. But what was it like to play someone at the beginning of of his career and how much of you is well, I would say you know what I actually did. So my old jokes in the. Beginning Act One of the open mics and stuff like that it was really interesting. It's almost like semi autobiographical semi documentary because I think every comic can relate to this is just such a real look of the behind the curtains of first opening GIG and It's interesting the hardest part not the two Mile Horn here but the hardest part. To do is pretend that bombing you know acting like farming in the movie It's very cringing feeling and we actually want the audience to feel that low as well as the high roller coaster ride of what it's really like to be a stand up comedian. This is really as you said, the story of Neophyte Comedians there's actually this scene when character and Chris another comic on the bill at the Improv are invited on a local radio show Chris kills it with a bit about Florida man, and then we'll have to follow him. Let's listen. Did you guys know that possibly undiscovered Florida? So he was looking for Fountain of Youth. And I don't know if you guys have been to Florida lately. But it's definitely not in Florida. They whipped out the cricket sound for that but I do. And those moments are so uncomfortable and as somebody that has a lot more experience than will. Right I almost don't want to feel that feeling 'cause I fought for twelve years in the stand up comedy clubs doing open mics to know that my jokes will land to know the good timing you know and even if it doesn't I know where to roll out of it, but will doesn't have that skill yet. So I have to just sit in that uncomfortable. Anxiety and it's kind of funny. Yeah. It was for sure you know there's this really sweet beginning to this film where we see your character well, and his dad throughout his childhood bonding over their love of comedy. What got you into comedy I would say that part is definitely not based on my life because I didn't know stand up comedy was he still refuses to believe that I'm a stand up comedian really he probably wishes I'm in science or something finance. have. You bought a home yet. That's when he'll. He'll really believe it when you buy I have he's good now he he's pretty good. Now he's all right. He's all right with it. You know when he understood doesn't understand standup he understands money. So it's all. But. I grew up in Hong Kong and I lived there for thirteen years and I never seen stand up comedy growing up. But when I moved to the states, that's when I started seeing stand up whereas it's the George Lopez Special Dave, Chapelle comedy premium blend but something that really love was not comic view it was just so cool and different to me just an art form different I never seen Santa and also you know mostly black comedians. On there talking about cultural differences and stuff like that and here I just came from Hong All I knew was Hong Kong Chinese culture you know so so quota even kinda learn about culture and laugh about it at the same time by watching bet comic view So that was that was something that planet a seat in the back of my mind. Oh, I love to be comic view that was that was my jam when I was young. We're funny though as a kid even when you, in Hong, Kong where you like a Jokester I was decently funny My Dad was too funny one. He's always jokes during a family and then when I came to America I was a small kid I mean I'm still a small kid you know So you can only imagine thirteen-year-old Jimmy pilot four, six, you know a tiny little kid with a baby faced I couldn't even speak English. Very, well, so obviously I couldn't fight you know and I had to of use comedy to deflect a lot of like I wouldn't say bullying 'cause I. Don't think got like really really bully competitive people that really got bullied out there. But just teasing and stuff like that I and used you know comedy's the deflected and I became known as the funny kid and that was much better than being known as the where foreign kit There's one joke in the film where we'll jokes about being. Chinese. But it's not central to this plot It makes me wonder in this moment of racial reckoning as we talk more about representation in Hollywood do you ever feel the pressure to represent absolutely all the time I wish I don't. I don't think Brad Pitt shows up and think about how he's representing white people because there's enough white people out there and we're working towards that I think crazy rich Asians did a whole lot and now all of my classmates from that off very successful doing the whole thing and I'm just so happy to see that you know and to the credit, of Steve Byrne who directed and wrote this Vince. Vaughn Peter Billingsley who produced this they cast it me for the lead role here and it wasn't written to be Asian I. Think the name of will chew was will O'Brien in the script. Yeah and that's kind of the great thing about standup comedy Sure I. Do some materials my family about being Asian and stuff like that but it didn't hinder my career to be Asian or made a different. It's almost like if you feel like you don't fit in, you know with the norm stand up comedies where you fit in even more because. That just makes you funnier with more life experience than gives you more depth So it speaks volume that they are able to hire an nation person that doesn't really have to change a script that all you know it's just a story about stand up and it just happens to be an Asian person and I think that's important for representation as well. Will idolizes fictional comedian called Billy Gee who has played by cedric the entertainer and billy has a successful television show a book. Your character will hold him in awe even asked him to lunch and Billy Gee messes with him for a while. Let's listen. Do you have any advice for a young comic like? What should I be doing? Two things. Right down okay. Be. Funny. I love that to. Cedric. The entertainer is also, of course, in the original kings of comedy directed by Spike Lee. What was it like to work with him in? Did you all develop a mentorship type relationship in real life? Absolutely. I'm a huge fan of his. I have that DVD the original kings of comedy and watch it many many many times I know every single bit in that. You know what he be. Funny. My character. She wrote down be funny I think cedric. Our write it down and then ask him to autograph it. I would have done the same thing and Yeah, which is still great i. think that's a great thing about stand up comedy. You can start from nothing from doing open mics to now I'm literally working my heroes and I can call Cedric A. Just something kind of Nice. But the yeah, you mentioned earlier that this film really is for stand up comics like anyone who's a stand up comic would understand but it was also like really fascinating as someone who's not in this world to feel like I kind of stepped into it. Many of the actors in the film are stand up comics did that impact the energy of the film? I'm just wondering about onset where you guys just like cracking jokes with each other. Now, I mean the chemistry's through. We're just having so much fun. You know some of us are playing comics like. Derek Cummings plays a comic in their Alex Moffitt but then you got bill burr. Plays my boss in the movie you know but you can just tell like know each other's rhythms you know and it's also a testament to how good of actors Comedians could be bill who has a very successful acting career he just so good such a professional actor let alone a comedian right. So maybe this is a resume to send to other directors and be like, Hey, hire more comedians we can do are saying you know you can do your thing for sure. Well, we have to ask you watching the opening act. It actually reminded us of what it's like to be in a room with the crowd watching a comic on stage something that we can't really do because of the pandemic. Do you. Miss It. I do I'm starting to more more I was lucky I finished touring in Chama Special November last year. So I was already in the material rebuilding phase because once you put the special at you gotta rebuild. and has down new stuff and things like that The one thing I do miss the most which kind of goes back to your last question is to camaraderie the Green Room Hang. You know I know I can show up at the Improv comedy store laugh factor on any given day and five of my good friends will be there will catch up and have a beer you know so that I do miss a lot the comedy itself I have been able to shift that energy into writing screenplays you know. So I'm finding other creative outlets Yeah. There's just nothing like a live crowd. Reaction that it get. Jimmy Yang is the star of the new film, the opening act. Thank you so much for joining us. Thanks for having me. And we've been following the ups and downs of small businesses since the pandemic began it's often more downs than ups businesses closing reopening in some cases closing again, trying to find the pivot, that will keep the lights on well a new survey from the National Federation of Independent Business finds that business owners are feeling more confident about future sales growth. Let's bring in Robyn Farzad of public radio's full disclosure Hello Robin with an. Hello Robin with an I. This is called the optimism index and it does look better after dropping to his lowest point in seven years back in April. What's driving that optimism? I gotTA. Tell. You. I. Think I'm done trying to figure out twenty twenty. Because if you think back to the spring, there were real worries of a full-blown one, thousand, nine, hundred eighties like economic collapse unemployment in the high teens. It seems like if you look at this report, we've averted the worst of of the nightmare scenarios, the Fed and Treasury backstopped the economy. We've talked about paycheck protection, quite a bit and housing and residential construction on fire, and so you're seeing sales for many businesses at least stabilized, and that's being reflected in the optimism numbers. The growth is in nine of ten sectors. Can you by the way tell us which? I think this index on the downside, it's been criticized for understanding the broader service sector restaurants, retail shops, hotel workers, and I think that's the weak spot in the survey. There's still tremendous amount of pain and worry if you look at restaurants with their ability to survive with being called the carry out normal. There's still hospitality towns. You saw Disneyland's news last week, the movie theater industry. All these players are in cash flow preservation mode on the flip side of it manufacturing is rebounded businesses with access to capital our reporting here that they're buying equipment and selling off inventory but I think the takeaway is that the relief is not uniform. So much of this is gonNA come down to a vaccine and reopening and how much spending you're gonNA see cycled into that reopening. Yeah and maybe what money from the government to help them going forward. But is this the improvement where it is? Is it because people are walking into a physical store or is it online? What's happening? Brick and mortar is recovering hesitatingly and with a lot of regional variation online we know is on fire. You can look externally it platforms like Amazon's third party sellers shop Afyon Candida, they're provisioning abroad switch to online for for all sorts of small businesses, but there's still tremendous anxiety over right sizing the right square footage and customer facing staff. If you're a shopowner went online is becoming a bigger part of the sales pie and to say nothing of of working from home for medium sized businesses that are doubting how much they're paying in rent. So optimism. In some quarters but is there some clouds other some clouds you see in this report? I mean, yeah of course, if you look around, you have to look for it what with twenty, five, million people on unemployment there's twenty one percent of owners in this report surveyed said that finding qualified labor is their top business problem thirty percent in construction report finding qualified labor is their top issue and maybe the worry of slowing new home production. So you're seeing lumping both. In the pessimism and the optimism but you have to step back and conclude that on balance. This is a time of great uncertainty for all businesses. Many are just hanging on the small business as many are hoping we have election ahead. So you know, yes, you do have to climb a wall of worry and optimism hopefully springs eternal but take it with a grain of salt. I love when you talk finance. And the Economy Robin Farzad lumpy nece will be the new where that we take an metaphor Galore for you mixed. Host of public radio's full disclosure. Thank you my pleasure. The Department of Justice is expected to announce a lawsuit against Google as soon as this week and what's anticipated to be the biggest antitrust action since the nineteen ninety s case against Microsoft calls to rein in big tech have grown louder on Capitol Hill in recent years and last week the House Judiciary Committee released the results of a year long investigation into the business practices of companies including. Amazon, apple facebook, and Google the report found all four of those companies have monopoly power of some kind and it laid out menu of policy options for dealing with tech giants, which the committee likened to the oil barons in railroad tycoons of past eras, and we should mention that Amazon apple facebook and Google all provide financial support to NPR and a few minutes we're going to hear from A. On the antitrust subcommittee who says, it's time to rewrite the laws but first congressman, Ken? Buck is a Republican representing eastern Colorado. Who says there is another option. Welcome. Thank you very much. So you in three of your Republican colleagues on the antitrust subcommittee wrote. Your own minority report calling it for a third way ahead. What exactly are you calling for? Well first of all, I think most Republicans on the the subcommittee and and the the full judiciary committee agree completely with the Democrats that there is a problem. These companies are acting as monopolies they are crushing competition they are really cheating and stealing in in the marketplace. The solution is really where there is some disagreement There are four areas that I think we have agreement on We agreed most importantly that the Federal Trade Commission and the Antitrust Division Department justice. Need. More resources. The second areas data portability consumers enjoy. Ability to take their cell number and go from one cell phone company to another cell phone company, and the same should be true with your search information and other information that has you're. The third area is the idea that the burden of proof should change with mergers and acquisitions. Burden should shift to the company to show that that the merger acquisition is not anticompetitive, and finally there is a question about market. What is a dominant in the market and the? Company's at issue here. Both suggest that they aren't really dominated the market and they defined market much more broadly of. So we need to carefully defined what it is that we mean when we say dominant in the marketplace. Okay. So you've laid out for changes that that you agree upon and you've supported the repeal of section two thirty of the Communications Decency Act that's the law that shields Internet companies from liability for content posted on their platforms. But is that really addressing the fundamental issues with monopoly power that your committee found exists these companies no I think that is more designed to address the bias issues that are prevalent with Google facebook twitter. And some of the others it basically gives these companies immunity to regulate speech, and that was never what was intended You know if you read one newspaper, you'll get position that his centre-left and if you read another newspaper, you get a position that center right and nobody objects to that but they object because Google or facebook are so dominant in the marketplace. So if we have five Google's then I don't think the issue bias is great. Congressman do you think that we will actually see change in the near future what will change when it comes to the power of these companies? Depends how you define near future I. Think what changed we're going to see oftentimes takes years. It will take a couple of years to pass legislative changes to update the laws for this new type of industry and our economy, and then I, think it will take. Close to a decade if sometimes to enforce the law through the court system if you look at the Microsoft case for the at and T. case years and years of of litigation before any result happened I hope that behavioral changes before the litigation is resolved, but that'll be interesting to see. That's representative Ken Buck Republican of Colorado. Congressman. Thank you so much. Thank you. And now to another view congresswoman privilege AIA, Paul is a Democrat representing Seattle. Welcome to hear now. Thank you. It's great to be with you. So this investigation lasted more than a year you heard from the CEOS of all four companies, your committee got millions of documents and thousands of hours of interviews according to the report. What's the main takeaway? Well, I, think the main takeaway is that self-regulation has not worked and it's come at the expense of small businesses and workers and consumers, and ultimately innovation and creativity. So this is really a report that helps make the case for Congress reasserting its power on this issue on antitrust issues, and so I think we have a number of recommendations, but we're excited to have really a roadmap for the path ahead to. Rein in anticompetitive behaviour, prevent monopolies, and allow innovation to thrive again. Okay. I WanNa talk with you about that roadmap but first off four companies released statements after your report came out disputing the subcommittee's findings for example, says, it disagrees that it has a dominant market share in any category that it does business in an Amazon. Actually said the presumption that success can only be the result of anti-competitive behaviour is simply wrong. These companies are sure to take to court whatever new policies, Congress and acts. Do you think anything will will fundamentally change as a result of this report? I do I mean I think the report has laid the groundwork for what we need to do, and I think that there is bipartisan sentiment that something needs to be done. It's unfortunate that the companies are taking that stance. This has been sixteen months of an investigation with as you said, lots of documents, lots of briefings hearings, and you see that the European Commission for example has really taken a very different approach and I think the United States is ready to do the same and there's a lot of agreement around that on both sides of the aisle that we need address this anticompetitive behaviour. Your report also found that Google has a monopoly in the general online search search advertising markets, and that got this big through anticompetitive tactics like undermining and acquiring rivals. Do you expect any of those concerns to be addressed in the antitrust lawsuit that's expected soon from the department? Of Justice, it's hard to say exactly what the Department of Justice will do but what we have found in this investigation and talking to the experts is that a lot of our anti-monopoly goals of antitrust law really have not been. Utilized perfectly, Bhai enforcement agencies or seen in the right light by the Supreme Court, and so it's really undermined some of those anti monopoly goals and I think what we need to do in Congress as clarify that the harms are broad and not just about price and that will give the direction. Now, we also need to give resources to the enforcement agencies and change some of the presumptive notions of acquisition. So for example, the burden of proof would be on them to show that future acquisition is not going to hurt competition. Well Republicans, say you you just need better enforcement of antitrust rules not. Some of these proposals that you're making not a new playbook and that you risk major economic damage. If you go as far as breaking big companies, what's your response to that? Well, first of all, I think you know Republicans have been with us on this investigation even Kimba has talked about he agrees with three hundred, thirty of the four, hundred pages of the report so I think that's a great starting place but I, think at the end of the day, the report does not recommend break-up. It does recommend structural separation. This is the idea that if you are a giant platform, you can't set the rules for other competitors that are different than the rules for you to compete and also operate the platform so that you can get all of the market intelligence and use that leverage and other negotiations to copy acquire or kill a competitor, and I think that is a very, very important recommendation at the end of the day it affects regular people having choices and small businesses being able to thrive. So what's next for for antitrust? Is there any possibility of new legislation or significant changes to regulations before the next Congress seated in January? I think it's unlikely that we'll see a lot of activity before the next Congress but I certainly think that within six months of the next congress, we will see some legislation starting to be introduced. Our goal really is to pass legislation in the next Congress of course, a lot of it depends on what the Senate looks like and what the White House looks like. But we want to protect small businesses. We WanNA protect innovation, and we want to protect consumers. That's representative Per Melody Appalled Democrat of Washington State. Thank you so much. Thank you Tanya. Let's head to California now, where the State's Republican Party has put more than fifty unauthorized ballot boxes in three counties labeling them official when they're not yesterday. California's Secretary of State. Alex. Padilla issued a cease and desist to the states gop to remove the boxes by Thursday. He says her breaking State Law the GOP. Maintains they have the right to collect ballots but that might be a separate issue from ballot boxes. RECASTS in is a professor of law and political science at UC Irvine. Professor wouldn't is the law when it comes to who can put out these boxes. Well, the state is taking the position that these ballot boxes are illegal because in part they're misrepresenting that they are official government boxes and also you can't set up a polling place on your own without official approval from the government on the other hand California has. Loosened its laws in terms of ballad collections. So anyone is allowed to collect ballot from anyone else and deliver them to election officials, and so the GOP is relying upon that expansion which the president and other Republicans have been very critical of to support setting up these boxes. Okay. This is ballot harvesting right where you you let's say the elderly or people who don't want to go to the polls you say I will go pick them up for you and bring them in can just anybody do that? Are there any other restrictions on that? Why should I point out that the term ballot harvesting is itself controversial and that a more neutral term is third party ballot collection. But. You're right under California law. It provides that anyone can collect ballots from anyone else and turn them in. It's a crime not to turn them in. There's a place on the ballot return envelope where you're supposed to list who is turning in your ballot but ballot going to be counted whether or not that's filled in right there's supposed to be a signature there right on the part of the third party the right they're supposed to be a signature The law says the ballot will be counted even if that signature is missing. When you put the ballot in an unofficial ballot-box there's nobody there typically to sign it. So it's going to be in there without that, and then supposedly someone will come later and pick up those ballots and turn them in. Okay. So backing up to the GOP's boxes a party spokesperson says they aren't going to remove the boxes, but they will remove the misleading label that has the official on it and again they say what they're doing is collecting they're using the phrase ballot harvesting, and so as you say, they're trying to use that part of existing law but talk about more about what's going on here if any skeptic thinks that the GOP is trying to get democratic ballots. To be put in a box that you know they made them throw away or something. As we said those ballots are going to be counted and these boxes are near churches and gun shops in Los Angeles Fresno and orange. County's that's a lot of Republican territory. What is going on here? Why do you think they might risk their own party members ballots? Yeah. I don't think they're risking the ballot so long as they're going to turn them in. First of all I think it's very confusing to have unofficial ballot boxes and unlike. The official ballot boxes which are very tamper proof and are in locations where they're going to be very hard for third parties to mess with. The reason we wouldn't want to have these out there is because somebody could interfere with the ballots. It looks like you just pick it up and thrown in a pickup. Take it. Right so I just dropped my ballot the other day into an official ballot box, and it's very sturdy bolted to the ground tamper proof their fire proof. But you know if you ask, why would Republicans do this? I think there's probably two answers number one they're trying to provide a way for their own voters to vote by mail in a way that they might feel more secure if they know that it's the GOP. That's collecting that or putting in the post office. So one reason is to provide another way of getting those ballots back because Democrats have a big lead in terms of vote by mail, because the president's been saying negative things about vote by mail. But the other thing is I think it's trying to draw more attention to ballot harvesting or third party ballot collection in California and the ease with which people can do it. The GOP is saying, well, you know if union members or. Workers. Go door to door and collect ballots. That's no safer than having this ballot box out there I don't think that's true because someone else could tamper with that ballot box but I think it does try to draw attention to that issue. You saying professor has in that. What we might be seeing here is the GOP realizing. that. It's Republicans who also want to use these ballots and not go to a polling place during a pandemic or they don't trust the mail because the Republican president has been saying don't trust the mail and they have to do something to try to get a leg up. Well, just before president trump started saying negative things about voting by mail Kevin McCarthy, the leader of Republicans in the House. said that Republicans were going to need to engage in this third party ballot collection. If, they were going to try to compete effectively in California Republicans tough spot and not just in California on the one hand in places like California Florida and elsewhere. Arizona they've relied very heavily on vote by mail to get out their vote on the other hand the president to sing all of this unsupported stuff about people tampering with vote by mail ballots, and so I think they're trying to find a way to thread that needle very tough thing to do in this environment. That's Professor Rick Hampson of UC Irvine with some of his thoughts on the unofficial. And potentially illegal gop ballot boxes in California professor. Thank you. Thank you. And here now.

Good Day Gina Grand. Good to you handball. Brian you suck Jimmy O Yang. I'm excited talked to him. And being being Baxter. Who's in London Town? Who We talked about came down with Corona nineteen it so did his wife and they took according to took every measure to stay safe and healthy. Yeah I think when we look back at the lockdown at least after talking to certain people about it for a period of time. I don't I don't think these stayed home lockdown thing when the dust settles on this whole thing is going to be the right the right tactic but anyway. Isn't that what Cuomo said is what Andrew Cuomo said that. We've noticed that the people who are getting tickets are the ones that are just passing it around their house with their families in it well. They've never they have not had an instance of people it outside at least as much as you can figure any of the shit out. They don't have examples of people passing it outside so we've locked everyone down and then made a ton of rules that if you go to the beach but as it turns out the beach is the safest place to be. That's what I think it's GONNA turn. It always turns out to be the opposite of whatever we thought so. We can look forward to that but also being baxter dear friend. Kay wreck just a big article in variety the other day about Iraq. No longer being k rock and kind of the beginning you and a long article. I know I you know and and it's it's sad and it can go no other way and I. I always kind of think about that. Saying of what happens when you become the man. K Rock was that upstart little station. Little mucky little indie indie band. You know little little indie station and it just outgrew itself but they got rid of being retired and Kevin was fired and Kevin weatherly the longtime program director. There had moved on as well and I guess the writing was on the wall. But it's an interesting story and it'll be interesting to talk that gene being Baxter about yes. It's a great article. I mean great in the sense that it's long and comprehensive and thorough and well source. I mean they've talked to everyone including the corporate people who are there now. And the weatherly is of the World Kevin's of the world. Everyone who you'd think like. Oh News opinion and it's funny 'cause the aforementioned Kevin weatherly lightning attributed the quote to him. It'll K rock won't just collapse. It'll be death by a thousand cuts ironically enough while he doesn't remember saying that. But it's funny because you can point to so many moments where you're like route. That's kind of work shock or Karaoke. Like when the Rodney big and I'm ruined when he was like go when given them being or loved you the just so many little things really like. It's a harbinger a sign of the Times. Yeah in radio is notorious that way that they take guys he take a guy like Rodney on the Rock and this guy. He's the strangest man in the world. But here's a guy who arguably puts them on the map in many ways breaking these huge bands. Was there for all every influential. Massive ban you can think of from the eighties and even into the ninety S. He was there for instrumental in breaking them and so forth. And when it's time to leave it's time to leave and when they don't need any more it's sort of like it's like sports except for no fanfare. No bonus checks jobs in the front office no hall of fame. It's it's sports it's like look. I don't care how good Joe Nemeth was. When he was thirty four he was of no use to anybody in the league but he gets to go up into the booth and do the commentating and he gets to do commercials. Oj Simpson was no good to anyone. The League when he was thirty four the lists the names of perennial all stars. Amazing athletes goes on and on and on in radios kind of that way except for you just get shoved out and they closed the stadium. And that's it. You don't get a bonus check you. Don't get the front office job. You know fanfare nothing. Your teams playing a different sport right. You just leave. And that's that's the way it is. That's the way it's always been in radio. Yes if people listening want to see just how odd of a character Rodney is. And he's back mificantly odd character one of our favorite documentary. The mayor of the sunset strip is streaming on Amazon prime. It's really really excellent. And Rodney is not a character. You'll ever forget. Yeah and it's funny. I was talking to mark garrison yesterday when I was walking my dog and And he was talking about k rock can he was there at the beginning of K. Rock is well. He's a Pasadena Guy. He's a local guy. He's been friends withdrew since they were fourteen. And let's not forget he ran or he promoted Perkins Palace which was the venue for all the K rock bands to play. So He's right in the middle of that world because acts or the teenage nurses or coming to play Perkins Palace or the dead Kennedys Susan the bands using the band's. I mean whatever. He's promoting I all those shows. The plasmatics played there. I saw the plasmatics there when I was like fifteen and a half at Perkins Palace. He's doing he's right in the middle of that world to and I said to him Hey We got this K rock dock. It seems now like a good time to really finish that docking and get it out there so and maybe you know when we started the dock there was no ending Kevin. Being we're going strong pay rock was going strong. Now we kind of have an ending. You have your ending. Unfortunately yeah but in a way just kinda shows that there's a there's a life cycle to a human being. There's a life cycle to a brand to a business to a station. I mean just to culture pop culture. Yeah and we were there. I mean thank God. Most of us got to experience in that in that window and also window. That'll never it'll never happen again because things are so fractured off so split up and so so you know nobody again. It's like A. I don't know a good late night. Rating as a as a two point three share back. Johnny Carson would get a thirty. Six share automated. Just it's not anyone's fault. It's the it's a way it will never be again. It will never be that way all right so we'll talk to being in a second. I did I don't know why was there's a bit that I do in my kitchen to Olga. By the way she loves it a couple of things. I always say when you say reasonable things and other people laugh real hard. It means Somebody's not doing their job. So what I'm saying is if you're going to take out the trash honestly like if you go. I said like well. We went all out to dinner and Bob insisted on paying if everyone laughs real hard when they hear that I mean POPs a cheap faulk. Who's not doing what he's supposed to do right right right. So I say so the kids in Lynette are in Florida having a vacation at At her sister-in-law's house and they're all just hanging out at the beach all day and hanging out in the pool and that's where they've been for a week. Of course Organi are at home and Oguz going through the kitchen. She's organizing the kitchen. She's going to organize an Italian room. I'm like painting stuff and fixing stuff. That's been broken and at some point I've standing in the kitchen with all gone. I said you know normally. I'm the one who goes on vacation while the kids stay home and clean this time we flip the script and she laughed her ass off now. She doesn't have to laugh her ass off. We could have. The joke was clearly implies would be that in many other arranged. Relationships are arrangements are relationships like it. Doesn't have to be funny. And I go on golf trips with my buddies frequently while they stayed home and rearranged the kitchen. Unfortunately it doesn't work that way. I'm just saying when you say semi reasonable things and people laugh drill down on it a little bit. Yeah yeah look at look in the mirror oldest favorite bit that I do is. She has to live with me and it's like what happens. Is I go over to the Sonos pad on the wall because everything so you just push a button and you can hear. What do you want to hear the George Harrison Channel? Go ahead. Just go walk. The wall hit the hit. The pad pushed George Harrison thing. And it'll go and all the speakers living room the catching listen George Harrison. I go okay and I'll hit it and they'll come walking in the kitchen. And the channel will switch to the seventies station and they'll go back in and I'll hit it and it'll play thirty seconds of my sweet Lord and then it'll shift to cool and the gang and then I'll do this bit that Olga loves but it's only because I'm pissed off the whole time when I talked to the AV guy when I talked to about it or anybody about it. They always go. They always tell me. Well what if? Thanks what it thinks so it. Thanks you want George Harrison but then if thinks that you want cooler game because it thinks you're going how about it just fucking work. How about stop reading my mind and tell me what I'm fucking thinking. I don't care. Will the movie projector doesn't work the outside like well the landscaping like they think you're in Maui? Right now what it thinks is urine Maui and it doesn't know that. Stop telling me what fucking thanks. Just get it to work. Just make it work please. All this technology it just doesn't work. Oh beans on home. Good Technology works this. This'll work line from from London. England I don't know where he is in England. That's a said Hill. Was that true. So that's what his integral instagram says. I gotta get hit man. Well being thinks you want him to hill but Jasser Habe. Yeah you're on your button. There we go. How about that rather gene is corrected as Notting Hill? At exactly right how you feeling. I'm okay I'm okay. Thank you for checking in. I've been told by Chris. Your producer that I may in fact be the first person that you personally that has been a positive on the COVID. Nineteen is that true. Probably as I as think about it I was sitting around my house the other day and I was thinking you know this thing feels like a pandemic horror movie except for I couldn't star in it because you couldn't start a pandemic horror movie. Her horror movie where everyone you knew was fine. It doesn't work that way if you're making a movie so I couldn't star in this movie but tell us about it well. I don't want to overstate my case. I'm not coming on telling you how lucky I am to be alive and prayers to the NHS because they pulled me back from death's doorstep. It wasn't as serious as that. I didn't end up in the hospital. I never got to a ventilator to friends by the way one here in London and another from our old neighborhood in New Orleans through both were that sick and both very seriously came close to dying. I was nowhere near that bat. One of the interesting things a span about the corona virus that I've not seen in all the years I've been studying pandemics I've not seen is that there are so many symptoms and there. It's very difficult to find a typical case. You don't look at a one hundred thousand people and they all have the same progression of symptoms. It seems like they're wildly different person to person and my case different than many that I've seen on the news because I did not have severe respiratory distress in other words. The problem was it for me that I couldn't catch my breath. I couldn't get oxygen and that's why I needed help or hospital. The problem with me was that I got winded extremely easily Just getting up getting dressed or taking a shower or do dishes or something like that would be enough that I would have to take a nap. I'd just wear me out like really really sick. If you have a really really bad flu you know you have similar energy that you can use my two biggest fevers or excuse me. Three biggest symptoms one was fever which was very high and lasted for well. This is day eleven now. I do still have a fever but if I talk to you a week ago I would have just been delirious. How are we talking at the peak? Does tomorrow night thermometer. I'm sorry to say by the way I'm still very confused by Celsius Gina. It is twenty nine today here in London and we are burning. Up is so hot but yeah it's very. It's still a weird comparison to me. I didn't have a thermometer unfortunately but Very very bad. You're like I've never had before to the kind of fever where your brain feels like? It's melting or on fire or turn to Mush. It's just it was just awful and always always much worse at night it also. I was accompanied with just the most severe aches and pains of my entire body. Unlike anything I've ever experienced before you know how. Maybe you've been sick enough where your skin hurts your hair. Her shattered all at. Where's awesome? Possum was also possible to sleep because like you couldn't lay on your side because if you put one foot or one leg on top of the other one just hurt too bad. Had anything touching your skin. Where do you reckon you got it? Well this is the question that my wife and I are driving ourselves crazy trying to figure out because we could not have been more textbook. Careful we were the people who took it very seriously early on. We've been self-isolating quarantine lockdown whatever WanNa say since the evening of the eighth of March so a full two weeks really before. London went into serious lockdown mode. We were already avoiding all people. We've been just so good with the masks with gloves. Hand washing with not touching the mail letting it sit for a day you know before we look at it Wiping down the groceries that we have delivery. We don't go out to the stores. I mean literally the only time we have got out in this entire time to go to the pharmacy if we need to pick up descriptions or to walk the dogs and that's it and we're the people who when we see somebody coming you know we cross the street to make sure we don't get within twenty feet of them if we can. So I don't know I mean you can't do it. If they're black found out the hard way they different message being sent. I'm sorry I wish I knew. We've seen those videos circulating of I think there was one in Japan where they showed you in a black light situation at one person has it and they touch one thing on the table and somebody else walks. Why it it gets their clothes and then somebody shakes hands and it just it ten minutes. The entire restaurant is infected. I'd love it if we could go back and pinpoint the moment. Was it when I lifted the lid of the of the dumpster to throw in your recycle or something although I always wear gloves I don't know somewhere along the way did it. Go through my mask as I walked down the street. Four minutes after somebody else had walked in that patch of the street and they had droplet. I don't know what's funny about but being dead. Is We get groceries delivered to obviously? And when they come to our house we do our best to wipe them down with the end up tyrian wipes and as I'm doing. I'm like what what a wild goose chase this. I don't know where the person who shot or me touch this this Zucchini. I'm doing my best to wipe it down and makes you feel better. Psychologically but I normally touch head of lettuce. I don't know how they grabbed us the net. You know what I mean like. You're a futile effort. Ultimately you can do your best to put your mind at ease but really don't know holiday grabs it or what they did or what that kind of stuff I mean. It could any doorknob anywhere right. I mean you're in good health. You've always been in good health. I think that helped me a lot at them. Honestly I think my my good immune system is a guy who never calls in sick because I. I'm very healthy. I think that's why why was able to fight back for this. Let's Talk K rock for a moment because sort of serendipitous Li I guess a big article came out just a couple days ago on K rock or sort of the end of k rock and have you ever seen a radio article longer in Trade Publishing. No now except for one about the grease man in one thousand nine hundred ninety now. Lucia man out of could i. Could I tell you I thought of you earlier today and this is completely off can Jim. But it's your show and that's how you roll all. I wish I had kids. I was thinking about you and your kids because Don are watching TV and we saw a promo for the Green Mile the movie the Green Mile Zone this week and I tried to convince her that the filming the movie is what actually killed. Michael Clarke. Duncan that there was a mishap with the the electrocution and then he really died right. Come on you. Don't remember Michael. That's how he died. He was so famous and they were filming this movie. They were filming the movie. That's why I'm stunned that it's still in the and I can tell she kinda was a tribute. She was listening enough to see. If I could convince details that I was thinking I should have had kids because I bet. Adam spends all day with his kids stuff. That is totally bullshit. Because he can't because it's so much to get them to believe it no that down the road like a year or ten years is GonNa be Bob. That's going to go off because you would planted some false memory. Oh yeah no I have this kind of slide of the kids. I have these conversations with my son and daughter. I go hard. Work focused dedication. That's the keys to success in richness and they go or you could just dine. We'll sell your cars so I am kind of pitching the live hard work and dedication. So what about what? What was your take on that article about Karaoke? You and what are your feelings? And how much do you feel not responsible but I mean I feel going there? Are you know but when you when you laughed? It was the beginning of the end. The morning show is really the backbone of of just about any radio station especially K rock and for for so many years almost thirty being and Kevin Rider. Obviously were were there. What what do you? Feel? What's your your take. Just your insider you would know. Well I I have a lot of feelings. It's A. It's a complicated issue. And as I mentioned it was a really long article. They did cover a lot of angles. But that's still not the whole story first of all I'd prefer not putting it out there in the either that I was in any way responsible for the rest of the morning. She'll being Chan three months. After I left I don't really. I hope that wasn't the case. I feel like Entercom who you probably talked about at some point on the podcast. The Adam they took over. Cbs and they were sixteen dollars a share and they were Gung Ho and optimistic about the business and everything has changed in the last two years you know with the economy the downward trends of radio with their stock price now being under a dollar most days and then the pandemic came along and I have a feeling that I not retired at the end of November and still been with the rest of the crew. I would have been fired along with everybody else in March. I don't think it mattered that I left. I think that was a freight train that was coming and anybody anywhere near that was going to get hit. I think it was a bottom line thing where they said we are broke. First of all were lucky to be able to pay the electricity bills much less to other bills that we need to run a radio station and we just have to start just just cutting off anything with six know six figures all right now anything five figures you know I mean I think they were just looking for as many dollars as they could save and they just blew out everybody that they could and I think I would have been blown out along with the rest of the team. Had I still been there? Do you What are you doing in England? What what is the schedule? What's the plan are we? Are we in retirement or we have no idea. I of said retirement just because now I'm even saying it because so many others have suggested that's what I did. I Left K rock because I wanted to move back to England. I was born here. I grew up on and off. Your my dad was military so we moved around a lot but I mean this has always been my home. I come twice a year and have forever and have lots of friends lots of family and my wife and I always thought hey one day it would be nice to move to England and spend the second part of our lives. You know Being able to go to Lisbon for the weekend or go Amsterdam or go to Ireland. Or whatever just you know. It's being in Europe. Having a base in Europe is just amazing in terms of the things that you can do. You know just like your Los Angeles you want to go to Las Vegas for San Francisco. I don't think anything of it. Well that's what it's like here. If you want to go to Stockholm just exciting to me and I go to stocked in. But we can't go so it was. It was not a career choice. I mean nobody leaves a morning radio show in Los Angeles without a job and moves to another cotton with unlikely to find work. If they're doing it for a career move. We did for our lifestyle. We did it because we just want a change pays. We'd done it the way we've been doing it for a long long time. And I also thought as I approached by sixtieth birthday last fall that I had been working for thirty years and that was probably enough. He probably wasn't going to get any better and I thought why not do something different. I mean I I was am still optimistic that I will find work here. I've got quite an uphill climb with my age of this dumb American accent. But I'm hoping that you know I show. I can at least get an interview. Show up and charm somebody to give me a shot. I have a couple of halls of fame awards you know. That helps But I did find some work. I'm working part time at them. I'm doing a a station. You'll you might be interested in. Its podcast. Radio and La podcast. Adam are a new thing. They're like radio shows but you don't listen to them live. If you don't want you you can listen to them on demand arrestation do you tune into the pot cars? Are THEY LISTEN TO CAR? So Right Pod card on the radio or it's you won't you won't be able to hear that so what this radio station decided to do. And I think there may have been a couple of experiments on. Am stations in America at some point? But this is a A digital radio station in London. That's most radio in in Europe is digital by the way they've kind of abandoning the AM's dead they're kind of abandoning the FM's most digital now so the same place you listen to virgin radio absolute radio or any of those stations you go and you just click on podcast radio and it's a radio station. They plays podcast all day every day. And I'm pod Jock on the station so I would come on after your show and I would go all that out of Corolla. He sure is funny. And then I go and then I talk about something else in the news. Maybe or a promotion for something. That's coming up and then I'd say all right now. Join Bill Burr. Let's see who he's got on the show today so I'm the kind of the interstitial DJ guy between by none of the podcast our stationers good as those two. But my point is that that's what we do. We have. Actually we do run some good. You know Alan alda's podcast. Which is terrific is on it. We do run some pretty good shows. But I don't know I don't know if you know I don't know if podcast I'm going to work as a linear radio station. I don't know what kind of success it's going to be. But it's an experiment and it's fun to be a part of well being of you know I've always thought you were just a world. Class broadcaster like like there should be respect for being funny and being is also a really good broadcaster. And I've always respected that talent in you. I could remember my early days of listening to K rock. Even when I was on k rock I I was. I marveled at how fast you could think. Speak and be so clear and sink very sweet. I always felt that way I I. I don't know what's your earliest memory of me showing up at that radio station. I mean you know you and I have spoken because of the circumstances of my final show last year we had un UN. Mr Kimmel came in Shared Memories and you know I think the first time is that first day you showed up mocking on that back door you know. Here's the guy who wants to be a boxing trainer for over this insane event that we have coming up but I just remember thinking seems like a Nice Guy Quiet. Probably not a big talker but seems like a nice guy nailed it. I was very careful. Did Not want to do that thing where I just blab my way into. Somebody's life because I wanted you guys to know that I was a boxing trainer and knew if I talk too fast in told you too many my ideas for bits that you wouldn't take me seriously as a boxing trainer that like sometimes you'll meet a guy in your guy you'll go. That guy is a really funny salesman. And he's a good talker and he's a good salesman and you kind of go. I guess you have to be a good talker to be a good salesman. But boxing coaches traditionally aren't funny and they're not good talkers and the problem is funnier. You are I knew the worst you would think. I was as boxing coach. And I wanted you guys to think I was a good boxing coach in a series coach. Oh I had to kind of ZIP it like I kind of bit. My tongue a little bit now when I signed up for lost time ever since fifteen minutes. He didn't talk that they'll make it up for all paying for it. Started Training himmy. I figured out very quickly. Not only were. We kindred spirits but that he wanted to talk more than train and by time he got in the ring. I thought to myself done and done. So we you know we trained for twenty minutes and then go upstairs to the cafe and have snapple for two hours every day in in Pasadena. What was your t thinks. Came to mind as you were talking. They're adamant I don't want to monopolize how much show you have to get to after this What do you think of? The correct is the first thing. I'm going to ask you a you're guy who was Inside you saw how management may decisions many times the decision. You didn't agree with what do you think about the direction? The station has gone in recent years. Where it's got. I didn't read the whole article because it was long and I just saw it at sort of the end of the night last night so I just sorta glanced at it. Might one hundred fifty pages. People have my thought. Yeah the Muller reports. A little bit shorter I always have this thought of kind of A. It could go no other way. It's just eventually. This is what happens. You know big companies get involved. They start making changes. The old guys get thrown out. You lose that. Whatever that Boutique vibe that handmade vibe that that happens when the big company big corporation comes in. And that's the kind of way I felt. I also realize radio looks at its talent is very disposable with they. Don't have a reference for the past and sort of comparing it before you got on to athletes you know Kareem. Abdul-jabbar played all those years in the league. When he had his final year he went on a retirement circuit where he was a adorned with with treasures at every town at every stop and now as an ambassador and beloved. Whatever radio doesn't do that they just they just kind of throw you out. Shut the door. I mean again. Look at the way radio. Let's go verses. The last game Corinne plays so the last game Joe Name Advice. You'll have a big ceremony for you like on your last game radio. They give you a fake grain wooden cardboard box. You put your flip flops in it and they escort you to the tour like it is the as opposite of ceremonial pomp and circumstance and respect and reverence. It's like it's like the opposite. You find out you're fired at the same time. The people listening find out if you worked in a place that sold aluminum siding and you worked at that place for thirty years. There'd be a much more respectful last day. You'd get a watch you'd get a Bundt cake. You'd have this light smattering of applause as you walked out for. He's a jolly good fellow. You'd go out like Debra winger and officer and a gentleman walk right out of that factor. They'd be clapping. So that's how radio is and I knew from the first day I showed the first day I showed up to K rock. I love telling the story when I've tried to explain to people like what radio is I ALWAYS DESCRIBE RADIO EXECUTIVES. I go TV. Executives are smart and an evil and radio executives are dumb and evil that started the difference between radio and TV but the first day I pulled into K rock when you're in Burbank. And I was walking down that SORTA dicey sidestreet with all the apartments in it that ran behind the studios there paramount. I think and we all had to park in the street because none of us could afford park right ways life. Why we're all parking on the street. I saw beans car. New CAR was out there convertible red rabbit camera by the way and I said I also Manley I was mainly I walked upstairs and Kevin Parked underneath with the security gate and everything and the keycard whatever and I Kevin. Why do you park inside and beam parks outside and said I WANNA pay the thirty six bucks a month? Don't they give you a parking space you the morning? Show the security just for the security alone you gotta pull up at five in the morning. It's dark outside. There's Weirdos I don't WanNa pay the money I also realized once when I was doing Kayla and we're in the morning show there and I got a call from James Baby Doll Dick's and my agent imagine this guy he represents Carson Daley. Jimmy Kimmel John Stewart Steven Co pair. Calls me and he goes. Oh my God I just had an insane conversation with your program Director Jack. Silver and I was like what he yelled at me because you wanted peanut butter and I thought Stockton. The kitchen couldn't wrap his mind around seven dollars worth of peanut butter being an issue for the star of your morning show that they would provide it for free. And that wasn't GonNa Happen on. Jack's watch I said. Welcome to Radio James. You don't emit an how radio works so that you think Adam. Sorry to interrupt you think at. I don't know if you saw this part in the variety piece of that one of the worst things that may have ever happened to care is it became for whatever reasons unbelievably successful and made a tremendous amount of money and then that's when they started curling up inside themselves and trying to protect that at all cost and making kind of making sure they weren't in wild and crazy and loose and fun anymore because there's too much money at stake. You think if the station had always been kind of perpetually a little bit underperforming it would continue to keep a little bit of that that vibe and might be at a better position today than it is the I I agree there. Is that sort of thing where you want to constantly have a little fire in your belly. Feel like you're not being respected. Feel like you're going to have to work. You Know Rick Dees and company over a kiss in order to get that brass ring and yeah there is that and again. I always just have the saying what happens when you become the man I just love. I just always think about that when they became the man. That's that's what happened well because music which was such a big part of cracks life and legacy used to be. We want to play the song because it's F. An Awesome and this is k rock and let's play. I don't care who likes it and who doesn't like it. We're we decide what's good and then it got. Then you're in a defensive position once you're billing sixty eight million dollars a year as a radio station you're like we could play that but twenty nine percent of the two thousand five hundred fifty four females in Orange County might not like it so is it worth it. You don't have the kind of different discussions between popular not popular when I used to. Come on you can look for Sir Dawson but when I used to come on to do Mr Burcham on Kevin and bean. My theme song was Sugarloaf's green eyed lady and that song has a two minute instrumental the beginning and I would play it and then Kevin Bean would go all right Mr Perch. Wait wait wait on it. Wait on it. Just wait there were playing sugarloaf on and nineteen ninety five per member that greatly tro rate. Drill I love that? I predicted that. I put this up on social media. Now it's kind of come back around again because of the article that I don't see how survives in the current environment the radio environment be the economy but see just with the competition in the marketplace of several other rock stations. That are more mass appeal than K. Rock is being an alternative and also have a much better signal came survives a lot. He does right. He always had a horrible signal and it was thousand watts. One of my laments is sit in my house up in the Hollywood hills underneath the Hollywood sign and I would try to listen to K rock and instead the station that would come in would be ninety one axe at a San Diego because they had the fifty thousand watt with the th. They had their antenna in Mexico. And that's why you could hear so. I could hear the San Diego radio station. I was on by the way I could hear that station. And Not here K rock which I could almost see from my house. You have green eyed lady. Sorry does I would come in and being with Mr Burcham here. We're GONNA take some calls. What'S ON YOUR MIND Mr Bush? All that all it just no but we got to the segment. We'll your jets. Adam pants has but jets. Now you guys playing the Iran smashing dumplings your nervosa music. This is a real rock and roll band. Okay all right. That's enough for the intro down. We've got to move on your all all your building a Cabinet today. Tell us where about that. Would you sugar love my a band? You guys play like nine inch nails and that's because as the word nail in it so titles. Oh wait. There's more. Oh Yeah doesn't and we're not giving out any advice until we get to it. At this point. They had written the lyrics yet. That's why the guys who still I remember. Play this song and Kevin. Appear like here. We go here. We go and he no weatherly program director sitting one office over going insane right. Yeah well because they want you to eighty God it down may want you to get to the point within the first fifteen seconds because God forbid you don't have enough trust built up with your audience that they're willing to go with you on the ride wherever you're going you know what I mean. That's that's helped looks at it. It's got. Don't give them the opportunity to tune out if they think you're just vamping. I last question I love how all of a sudden now I'm directing the area atom You're talking about the boxing which I would remind me. I haven't been following it much. Mike Tyson is gonNA fight again. What is he doing? I heard something. I saw a quickening offer instagram of him looking out gene. Zia these videos of him. He's doing this thing where you can pay to come watch him train or something I mean. Who's he boxing in for. He's fifty right as fifty three. Okay so who's he boxing in for? What is it to raise money for charity or rope? What's happening now? The first off anyone who's ever dealt with Don King as brook which is awesome by the way when I talk about like identity and identity politics and stuff like that I go look no further than Don King Don King's angle with all the poor black fighters. I'm a brother. You know what I mean. I'll take care of you Bob Abrams. That guy's a Jew. He's got to you. You know you got family and me. And then he would screw every fighter he's ever represented so my whole thing is like a Bob Arum. Sorry Bob Point is is whether it's a politician or manager. Pick the best one. Don't pick the one that looks like you. The either one of them is capable of screwing you but this isn't a manager. Somehow this has to be Iron Mike. Doing his her screwed him. He's probably broke and he's he's training and he's sharp any looks good and he's staying in shape and so on and so forth and people are talking about him getting back with Vander Holyfield who's fifty seven and a vander. While evanger made a lot of money vander also had a lot of kids and not all of them were with the same woman and he married a deeply religious man Brian. So please Okay you you're dot. He adopted. Yeah I just. I worry that Mike is not the sharpest guy ever and he seems like the kind of person who could be manipulated for ill-will and I'm just worried he's being taken advantage of. I guess that was what I was hoping to hear from. You is that it's just a start for fun. Nobody's taking advantage of the poor guys. Talking to this is head knocked off. I Will Echo. You're saying which is not only is he not the sharpest guy ever. He's probably not the top seven to ten sharp guys ever okay not even further top fifty with all the great minds you know. The history is brought us He's GonNa get a day. That's what he's looking for and we are. We've all entered a sort of P.t Barnum oh it's Jimmy on now. Sorry now yeah type connecting all right. What's what's going on talking about Shimmy. Oh Yang not all Jimmy. I know when he's funny. Want to bring up so funny when some before the show. It's like we got. We got Jimmy. Jimmy Jimmy be there in the kitchen. We gotta go see him. Seventy swiped Pavlovian Jimmy Dean. Where's being Jimmy's coming? The we're now I was going to say a kind of P.T. Barnum era where Conor McGregor. It's GONNA fly Fight Floyd Mayweather and we like it where you know. Porn stars are also celebrities. Were celebrities have bootlegged porn tapes. That are out there. I mean it's completely blurred. It's sort of like what we're talking about. Podcasting terrestrial radio guys on TV or doing podcast guys doing podcasts or doing movies you know it's like we're so we're all in this big melting pot of entertainment now and I would never say in a world where. Wwe Is huge and the UFC is huge. I mean you think about it the UFC is the the most graphic example of real combat. There is and then there's a fake version which is professional wrestling and they're both huge. Now you would think well it'd be one or the other we're going. You Know Fisher foul here. Oh No. They're both huge. And everything is in this world that we're living in Tyson could fight an alligator and I'm sure you'd get a ton of pay per view buys or Vander Holyfield or somebody from the UFC. Sorry Forget speaking of P.T. Barnum. It was actually excellent. He did a hell of a one man. Show member right Tyson. Did I talked to Mike Tyson? Right he did that and I think he did it with an IFP. He had like an earpiece in and that someone backstage. Kinda give him some points and talking points if he goes up on a line. Hey Bean we'd love if you could check in periodically because I have so many questions Lamma. Yes yeah go ahead I was just gonNA thank you but I. I really enjoyed this because I haven't had people to talk to you. Know I haven't been on the radio doing a radio show since November so. This is really fun for me and I I miss this. I missed this a lot. Well let's it's our pleasure and let's see. This is an answerable question. We all know how enamored we are here in the United States with the English accent. And we all remember. Richard Blade was a strength. What was Richard Blade British British? All Right and he was K Rock and he was a fixture on K rock problems. Everyone loved his voice. Okay yeah his accent. How much do the is that? A two way street when you go to England to that at all not at all up there. There's there's absolutely no affection whatsoever. We in their mind and rightfully so by the way we lessened their language. We've bastardised their language. We took the language. That was the Queen's English and we turned it into something that isn't as pretty so no and that's something that I face not only not just sound like a foreigner like I would be in better shape here trying to get on the radio if I were Australia or if I spoke in if I was if I was a Spanish speaker who spoke English with a Spanish accent I would do better than big American accent. Wow it's it's a real mountain to climb here but no nobody's enamored of accident for sure good to know all right. I'm not moving all right being. Thanks so much and at being number nine instagram and twitter at Clyde Tombaugh. How do I say that? Clyde Tombaugh yes the the guy who the great American who discovered the Planet Pluto.

That's mathematical then that has been tested and proven it's very it's a very funny bit a very funny stamp getting shot at the Neptune Theatre in Seattle which we've played a few times. There's a funny bit at the end about Canada I'm trying to think of Wherein and cannon screw this one I was in Winnipeg Winnipeg right. Yeah and I've been to Winnipeg played like that Burton Cummings hit or whatever it is over there tag and but getting into Canada I've had many trials and tribulations with the border. The customs people in Canada Jimmy. When we talk about that a little bit. Yeah it was my first time traveling internationally with American passport. Because I wasn't born here and I finally got my USA ships. I felt real good about myself. I'm an American. I got blue passport slammed down in front of the Canadian Border Patrol. And he's just going to back. Please come in our country but then I forgot. I didn't prepare for the fact that oh I'm there to work for business to do. Stand up guy asked me you here for business or pleasure. I was like Oh man. I forgot to get a visa. What am I going to do? I can't miss these show so I'm like okay. It's candidate it's one. Yeah I'm here for pleasure. Slow white lie next thing you know. I was escorted into the back room with a security guard was holding a gun and everything and they're like. Are you sure you here for pleasure? I'm again I guess some family and I just love Winnipeg and she was like nobody comes to Winnipeg for pleasure. Immediately found out and the long form of that story was extremely embarrassing. Because I kept lying I was like. Oh you know what? Yeah it's it's I know some people here Blah Blah. And then she looked up on her computer. She was like well. Are you a stand up? Comedian I was like. How do you know that this is way before Silicon Valley? Whatever and she swivels her computer around and it's a facebook post of mine it just hey guys come check me out. I'm opening my saw. The rumors comedy club and I was like Oh shit but luckily they were Canadian so they let me through so I the first time me and the other Jimmy. Jimmy Kimmel went to Canada to promote the man. Show some some Canadian Broadcasting Station like bought the man show all this stuff just feels like a dream but we're it's like two thousand and one and we're supposed to go to Canada to go on a promotional tour and they always tell you the same thing. Don't tell them you're here for business. Just say here them pleasure. They hear business. They're going to pull you out and patchy down to say to say pleasure so we all did the pleasure thing and Jimmy sailed right through customs and I said pleasure and they wanted to look a little deeper into my briefcase and they pulled out like a sixteen page Tin Ary and it just had all the dates and all the radio station and the car going to pick you up at the hotel and they're taking the hair then they're taking you there then they're picking you up again then launched and she's like this doesn't look like pleasure. Looks like business to me. Because it's a detailed itinerary of the next three days and I said I take pleasure in my work. That's right I'm not getting paid for any of it. It's all promotional and I remember really. Clearly she goes. You're not getting paid. You're going all these shows. You're not getting paid and I thought I was thinking fast. I went When when Fox Michael Michael J. Fox Michael J. Fox goes on a talk show in in America? He doesn't get paid and she went. Who's Michael J. Fox and I was like come on man? I specifically picked when your brightest stars to bring up. And you're telling me you don't know who and then the conversation shifted to. Why don't you know who Michael J. Fox is and then candidate is being detained? God Did you end up getting through. I got put a room for a long time. They were angry at me so they did that kind of punishment thing where they sit you in a room and there's a guy behind the counter and he looks at some stuff and then he looks down and then he looks at you and then he looks down again and he's just GonNa let you sit there and think about what you do which is entering a by the way these guys look. You know. Maybe we shouldn't call it my country because these guys feel like it's their country you know they coming into my country and it's like it's not all yours you gotta share it also. There's something nice about okay. I hope they deport me back to America. What's the big deal and this way I don't have to press in your case That would be my dream. It was weird because it was like I remember. Jimmy was just like standing out on the curb for an hour kind of wondering whether he should get into a cab at some point and also also they found a porn mag in my briefcase and it was told you pleasure middle aged check who pulled out a Gente from like nine hundred ninety nine. Hey Kids we have to travel with porn hard copies. Yes guys you said. Actually you'd pack porn when you pack porn took your toothbrush and extra pair socks but Super Super Humiliating Blowout. This porn mag well. She was behind the counter but Eventually we hooked up with Jimmy Eventually. We we made around Space Force. Let's talk about that. I was just watching. The trailer looked really funny. And it's a big budget l. My big like it's it's like it's a workplace comedy has the heart at has you know of course funny from Great Daniels and Steve Carell. But it's shot like a major hundred million dollar movie. It's it's pretty sweet man. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I've seen all that besides and it's awesome. It starts at the twenty ninth. Haven't made twenty nine and all the episodes drop. Yeah on Netflix. And I mean again if you guys watch just the two minutes sizzle reel on it. It is a big budget. Now I guess I have to Jimmy verify this formula and my hunch is that this was put into motion. After trump came out with the idea space force there are some people. Laugh and bill deadened. But I have to imagine this or was it. Renamed at that point either way to get from there to here in basically a year is crazy accomplishment. Yeah I think. That's what Steve Cronk. Rick Daniel Greg Daniels can just like. Hey Hey guys I have an idea. Okay okay go ahead here. Here's the money shoot right Yeah it was after the trump I guess jokingly said it or there's some kind of an announcement but we finish shooting the show last year by December. Which is very fortunate right so we host and everything before condemning so now it can make the cut but at the same time the real space four started coming out of ton of news like they. They released their uniform. Which land camouflage we actually did a a uniform episode in our show before that. And then they announced their eight new recruits and stuff. But we already shot our whole season. So we get to Kinda. I guess the writers especially to use their imagination because the space wasn't quite a thing yet so it'll be interesting. If we get a second season you know on now we can actually do some research on on what the Real Space Forces up to. It's got corral. Obviously John Malkovich their friend Willard. Poor Fred Willard ask Lynch Lisa Kudo. Did you get to interact with Fred? Willard at all I didn't. I actually didn't have any scenes when he plays a Steve Stat. And he's his own scenes But I heard nothing but great things and I met Fred like a few years ago. Actually at a fresh stoler Like live read event or something couldn't be any Sweden. The guy is such a such a genius and we actually found now or I found that we have low group chat a text on Space Force. I found out for Malkovich. That you know Willard has passed and it was crazy. 'cause I'm I'm starting in the second season of the writer's room for Space Force in anticipation anticipation of in case we get we do get picked up and the day before he passed where literally just talking about man. Wouldn't it be funny? If we pair Fred with this guy that guy and then the next thing day he was just gone so that was pretty tough he was a very dear guy and he was very sweet and he was his character. His persona onscreen was a lot like he was offscreen. Like if it's a real he was. He had a sincerity to him. That was you. Don't see that often in people like a real he really WANNA know how you're doing. He really enjoyed life. He really seemed like he knew that he was blessed with this incredible life and career. His wife was we like he was just a sweet guy but sincere. I don't know how to how else to say it. And it's not it's a it's a strange quality. I don't possess it by the way no but I know I'm just I'm not like he was a really sincere sweet guy and I don't know that it makes you bad if you're not although it's better if you are but he was always a pleasure to be around He doesn't take himself very seriously as much of a legend s years. And he kinda. He didn't really blow up until I guess when he's like in his forties or thirties. I you know what we actually found this one clip There was a TV movie in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight of really bad TV movie called Space Force starring. Fred Willard. Isn't that insane. Yeah and and I was doing my research and Kimmel actually did a spoof on his show last year would Fred I. It was just isn't saint like nobody knew about. This friend. Never told us that it was really cool. You know what was one of his funniest roles is on spinal tap when he ran the airforce base. Man He was meeting the guys from spinal. Tap was talking about like. Oh seven hundred hours like oh nine hundred hours or they didn't know and he was talking about letting his hair down liking. Do you guys remember. Max? Pat Finds Airy vaguely that scene. It was it was. It was Fred it his best because you could tell. It was very much improvised. Also it was him being nice and means at the same time. Nice insult thing. Like he was insulting. Obviously the ban head SORTA bottomed out there playing this local air force base for a for a night all right. Well I'll just play this. We can remember how funny Fred was. Well it's rebooting or doing whatever it's doing but we'll see if we can find it well into that point. He was given a completely second life by Christopher guest in terms of the next generation. Appreciating Fred Willard. Yeah all right. I start by saying how thrilled to have you here. We are such fans of your music and all of your records. I'm not thinking personally but the whole genre or the rock and roll in. How do things that are happening? And let me explain a bit about what's going on. This is our monthly at ease. Weekend chance going to let down our hair. Although I you all have a headstart military must've leaving although I shouldn't talk my getting a little shaggy two but are not getting Ben. I'm Joe gave. God shall we go in and I'll show you walk this way please Right through air. You ever run into a musical group works out of Kansas City causing four Jackson. Jill they've been remotely in there for about eighteen months of you ever in Kansas City. And you'll want to hear some good music you might want to drop by weighing on about nineteen hundred hours of that satisfactory. I make it now. It's about eighteen hundred and thirty hours so house. Gets asked about thirty minutes. But have you ever take just a few minutes? I don't WanNa ruptured ideas that we can get it on and we get it over with and I have just one request to play a couple of slow numbers so I can dance it. Get it on get it started and we can get it over with and I like I love your music. I have all your records. I mean not your your records but the era of rock and roll. He's so good at making up all of these back stories that little characters in this part of town One of my favorite scenes is talking about threat is from a mighty wind when he was like.

Great Young talents come around and just blossom just blossom. And do you know any now? Wanted to Jimmy Dean. Only Joe Marcus. I feel like the speeches now. She was I just seemed like a kid the first time I met him and then I watched his special and just seemed like a seasoned veteran up there on stage. Really kind of kind of owning it. And how long for you. How long did it take you to really have that presence? That command up up on stage to really know who you weren't sort of own it. Yeah this special is my debut. My very first our special and it's ten years to make and I've been doing stand up ten eleven years. I think a lot of people know me as an actor but don't know me as a comics was like man I gotta get out there and proved them so some of the materials of brand new that I worked out somewhere older stuff that I fit in this narrative of this new special. You know what? Interestingly I never really had stage fear I was like pretty good with bat. I think most of the honing came. I mean that had to work on was the writing of it and putting a cohesive story and because I think everyone when you first start I some dumb ass like masturbation jokes or something. One of my first jokes is me jerk off then watching sports center on the same time that ended up jerking off the Michael Vick by accident. Every time I see Michael Vick I come a little bit whatever actual costs and then a lot of these jokes even have you not talking about masturbation then you'd start stereotypes at in your family but they all just kind of setup punchline and that's it you move onto the next joke. I think what really allows a our special to happen Expanding some of these ideas and also allowing yourself to be vulnerable especially with others this binging age. It's a little different than a thirty minute. Comedy Central Special now when you see specials like Like Hanoch Gatsby comedy special. I'm not saying that's the funniest special but I think she pushed the envelope on the storytelling special and comics can allow themselves to do a little bit of that. Like my story about almost getting deported from Mexico. Almost getting deported from Winnipeg as well. Eylau myself like eighty percent. I'm going to do straight stay ended up laughs last laughs and a twenty percent. I'm going to do some storytelling so as finding the balance and then building to that our set. 'cause I think for the first five six years you doing like ten fifteen minutes at the Improv. The laugh factory you're lucky you know the storytelling and the security to tell the story. It also comes with having your audience because you just get up and you're GONNA pop up at the Improv. The comedy store. That's just an audience. That's not your audience. And so you have this metronome. That's moving a little faster. Setup punchline setup punchline at a certain point you get to that great win win situation where you're filling theaters and they're all there to see you and so they will stay with you on that journey a little longer than just random crowd at random events so nicely built into that place Jimmy. Yeah the crowd belief. I think it's one thing that you really gotta think about. Do they know who you are at the Improv. Oh you've seen him on the Silicon Valley. Do people clap or just looking around. Like who the fuck is this kid? Then you've got going faster. Yeah you gotta go a little faster and if they don't know who you are improve who you are but if you go too fast on a crowd that does know who you are. You seem Kinda desperate. An insecure you really. That's part of reading the crowd and I guess that's part of the experience. You're totally right. You're talking about getting into the writer's Room Space Force. We sort of went down that Fred Willard rabbit hole but were you in the writer's room for the first season. Yeah no I wasn't I've been writing a lot Just myself I wrote a book that I'm trying to turn the TV show in a couple of features stuff. So that's something. I look at like my next challenge but I WANNA do Because I the stand up so I've done some acting. I WANNA create also so first season I guess. On a Greek Daniel. Show I was obviously never on the office or anything but it was so collaborative You know the head writer Brent Forrester and Greg himself was so open to ideas and I pitched a whole bunch of ideas in the first season that some of ended up being in the show Some very personal stories even and they're just so open to kind of developing characters and relationships between the characters so during the second season. I know they're were about to start this kind of preemptive writing room so I sent Greg. One of my scripts. I'm like hey man at any I wanna get in any level. I don't care if I'm just typing on a laptop as an assistant is to learn from you guys. I WANNA learn from the best and You know credit to Greg. He was once against super open to the idea of one of his actors. Writing much like B J Novak did or Mindy Kaeling did on the office so yeah I was Kinda given this amazing golden opportunity to be part of the room this year And a little nervous in the beginning but I think now I feel like I'm I'm I'm one of the boys in their Boys or girls and You know it's just been been really fun and it's a great learning experience. I'm trying to think was zoom to. We need a writer's room a physical writer's room. Are we GONNA have? I mean I've been in lots of writers rooms for lots of different man. Show Oscars Crank Yankers done tons of sitting in a riot sitcoms and stuff like that. What we're doing right here would work. I think it sucks. The only bad part about this is the best part about a writer's room as lunch when everyone is everyone is pitching their idea for lunch. Like you're come on kebabs. It's been like a month and other guys wants to these pitching sandwiches and he has to win you over but other than that. Couldn't we do it this way? I don't mind it. It's starting as a very small writer's room right now but Zuma. It's a bit exhausting. You don't get the person to person thing but it makes you focus a little. I feel like another writer from we get a low. You can go check your phone roque quick and chat about your day here. We get on at eleven o'clock boom let let let's get to it. What are we doing here And it doesn't have to last long. I think it would be great to actually still have a physical room but starting this way It's totally fine as a substitute and so the past two days. Monday Tuesday I've been doing like press. Junkets FOR SPACE FORCE AND USUALLY PRESS. Junkets is super miserable. They put you in a room somewhere in a hotel. And then it's like a gang bang rotation of reporters coming in five minutes and then the other one Firi- right. You never get to talk and you just complete exhausted. Hotel Room with make up with wardrobe But the virtual press junket was awesome. Super-efficient I'm sure. Netflix saved a lot of money by doing a virtually. And I do it at my House. I get to go take a piss in my own bathroom. Grab a cup of tea. Eat some lunch amount house and that was great so I think certain things actually people were just gonNa realize that doing virtually is actually a better idea. I agree and you know the the part where have done these satellite tours and press junkets and it's it is. It's exhausting first off. It's really early. It always starts early super early and no creative people like early. But it's early and if you to get from your house to Culver City and you got to be there by five thirty. Am or five fifteen. 'cause he go hot at five thirty. It's getting up getting dressed. There is something psychologically so much nicer about just like walking downstairs and turning your computer on even if the only the savings could just be a half hour or maybe forty minutes but it psychologically so much nicer to walk to your office and turn up. Turn on your computer. Well you guys know it just from doing this. We're doing this friends aspects. Have a story about flying to New York for Junket to you. Press TO DO L. A. Press like you couldn't just stay here and do it for some reason that sticks out in my mind. I had lots of stories where I've just said to people. Why do I have to go there because you to be there? That's across the country and like the the radio tour started in L. A. Or something insane sent. There were a lot of rules. There were tons of rules and they weren't real rules there. Were sort of look every restaurant if you ate breakfast in this country if you ate breakfast in this country at a diner from nineteen nineteen to nineteen eighty three. There was partially by the side of the plate. It came with a sprig of Parsley. We have foreign tastes sixty seven year run of Parsley and somebody went. Why do what's the Parsley for? No one eats it. No one likes it. No one's missing. Because that's what you do. Don't ask any more questions and then at some point and nineteen eighty-seven they stopped. And no-one said Jack Shit Yeah and to your point used to be garnish and they said. Why don't we eat it? You're saying no. He's on a abetted glade of Kale. It's the same with this. It's the same with these. Junkets is the same as zoom. Like you have to be there. You gotta be there in the morning. You gotta be. I've had pitch meetings where it's like. I'm not it's not even my show. Well you need to be there just to be there like now. It's like evidently you don't have to be there. Yeah it's great. I hope this old ton of this old institutional stuff is going to break down because of this pandemic maybe that's the positive of it because even from a financial standpoint. I never understood like rent out the entire floor of the four seasons. They have a a a a digital team. There they have they rent it out. It's got cost a million dollars. Doing a digital is practically free. Why haven't we done this twenty years ago? Well and also in terms of the cluster faulk that is L. A. Traffic and now on New York Manhattan downtown. Whatever the cluster. Fuck that is traffic and I mean obviously the traffic is like when you do one of these radio junkets and they do a thing where it's like well you're going to be. Howard stern starting at six. Am and go. How Far Away is it? It's like it's eleven blocks but it'll be faster if you walk driving a slower like a by the way anytime. You're you live in a city where somebody announces. It's far away but it's faster if you walk that's time to stop that's gut check time as a city. We got a problem here. I mean I get in a car and get there after the guy who's walking. Something's wrong with this city but you in La. I would reckon that three quarters of the people that are on the freeways don't really need to be there like we're now seeing it like. Hey if you worry now. Yeah if you work as a truck driver by all means if you're going to your job at the supermarket by all means but fifty percent of you really don't need to be here and we could thin now that heard and by the way make it easier for those truck drivers if people who would do the press junkets from home or through their podcasts or do whatever their meetings or whatever their business you think about any business that's not physical tangible production warehouse stocking manufacturing theoretically could be done from your living room right. Yeah I think I have very first world problems of anything. I live in a fairly decently sized place with a backyard. I think a lot of these things are just people looking for excuses to get out of the house. Oh It's good to meetings on my book that means at least I can go get some sun a when I get out. So maybe it's it's it's just an excuse stats but it's not for efficiency. That's for sure all right. Let me Hit a quick thirty GEICO here. And then we'll break and do some news with you Mayo Yang. Oh man everybody's sharing these days. Gyco wants to thank you for sharing all your bad haircuts. Dance moves and Dog Trimming Failures. It's GEICO's turned a share to at GEICO.

Welcome to the show buddy. How are you I'm here man I'm happy to be here. This brand to see you guys. See You. You've got so many great things happening. I love the standard special on Amazon which was amazing. I watched it and again. We've got a chance to see work that stuff at the Improv so good. I'm literally telling everyone. You Got Amazon prime. Check out this special. Did you have some? Where'd you shoot it out again? We Seattle in the Neptune. It looked beautiful. Beautiful thank you man and we're trying to do a lot to make it. Look Different Than Alley. Longshot urs there like a few people that shot their sturdy yeah, but would build like thrash than I was down Tornado mccullers with the production designer and snap, it was great. It had an aesthetic theater and one thing that I love just about your stand up and I just loved watching it this special. Special, is you just took your time like you? Take your time with your stuff and I feel like you get your one of those people that get a ton of laughs in just you're taking a pause. It takes a lot of confidence to put something out there and pause, and just let the audience come with you, and you did that so many great times on the special I loved it. Thank you so much. Man I I think that's all of us. When we first start were so like. Oh, we gotta say more say more get last for seconds, and then you you learn, I can still take more time I. Think Yeah, I. Feel, the same way about our stuff, too, but it's all about growing. I thought that it was just a great special. Base force coming out. I'm so excited about that show. Everyone's talking about it. You gotta be pumped about that, too. Shubra pumped. I mean just first day on Senate was was me Steve Corral and John Malkovich? It was quite a nerve wracking. Imagine. Those are incredible, but man that now became Kinda like a tight little family lights on today I'm doing a bunch of space force press later on. We have a game night space for night, cool! Put together for all of us, so it's like Steve. John Leeson everyone else. That's all. It's it's Kinda cool man. It still are the coolest is not lost on me. I'm stoked to watch it just like everyone else. I love it well. We believe in this podcast believes that the world's getting dumber which I know. You attacked very nicely in your special and so we get stories sent to us by our fans, and then we're just going to riff on one. If you want to jump in with us right here so Dan, let's go. Let's do it. the headline for this culprit of illegal. Dumping gets trash returned so illegal. Dumping is at someone taking a shit. No but someone illegally dumped a bunch of stuff right, which is a dumb thing to do. And then they had it all right only dumb people town with some and be like I'm taking it all back like this is like the trash version of goonies like Corey Feldman. Of them all that they can come back. That you legally dump something and then you the next day. You see it all on your front lawn. Yeah, you're in like. Go ahead, much dumping and how I guess, how would you don't think and how any returning? That's right? Interesting because I want them to return a very secretive ways so that you feel like you're in some sort of like very environmentally friendly horror movie. At a time. Throw the baseball into the closet, and then it comes back with coupon it and you're like. Four tax from another. or You could go classy and just shape all the garbage into the shape of a giant Lexus and put a bow on it and put it in your driveway. December to remember. December to remember? The horror movie idea. is always hear some noise. Is that real that real? They got crazy and then eventually it is a real go, so this is. Garbage with. End of the episode is sleeping. The guy gets dumped on. His. Friend is like I thought. You illegally dumped that stuff I thought I did to. That old cauliflower all right the trash coming from inside the. Sending by Catherine, talk at Catherine Lorna. Thank you so much. Katharine percent of the someone who illegally dumped garbage in Fredericton which sounds to me like the group of people could not decide on what to name their town and. They all they just. Ville no Y. like friendly fine. It's Fred. Town Redder Rick Ton. Also like. They had like a syllable competition in town. We can get one more. Of Let's illegally dumped that last syllable. Someone, who illegally dumped garbage in Fredericton found themselves picking their trash back up earlier this week, Chris. White had about thirty to forty pieces of garbage strewn strewn across the grass in front of his family's farm on Spring Hill road. That's a statement. The people who? Dumped illegally. They're like we're now going to. We're GONNA lay it out last outfield toys, not an old barbecue burner and a new barbecue box, which is fitting. You're kind of seeing life coming and go. Right you can. Gross garbage bags. It's like stuff furniture through La on the sidewalk. Mattress I would love to hunt down those owners in dump it back in their house. Right back. Mattress out on the sidewalk is like depreciates the value of all the houses in that neighborhood. Yeah, you're always choose like, but there's like like no one wants your broken shelves. Nobody wants you broken shelves. They barely wanted it at your stupid garage sale right so when we were in New York, we had we lived in Manhattan like ninety four. We had this terrible Ikea's bookshelves that we built incorrectly. Let me just say that we built. Like, there were times. Jane, I in our roommate we'd come back to the apartment, and the entire bookshelves was fallen over all the books on the floor, because it just crushed under the weight of what we had on it when we moved out of that apartment and I mean the where the TV was is back when TV's were heavy and sat in entertainment. Thing Oh. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, usually spend it went. All the way down, so when we left the apartment of moved out where like I cannot wait to throw this outside on the ground, and starts stomping on it and beat the shit out of office space. Be Done with that. Just be done with it, and we set it out and we of did that and we started to take it downstairs. We took it downstairs and we take it out back ready to take a baseball bat to this thing and the guy who worked at the front desk. It was like what are you doing with that? We're like we're about to destroy. Like I'll take it like. You took away the. Joy of destroying past four years. We've been waiting to destroy. So that's essentially what this guy got thrown back on his. All the stuff you wanted to get rid right toys barbecue, old barbecue burner new barbecue box. Chris, White said a family friend noticed the trash and shared some pictures of the garbage online. Could this be the plot of Toy story five I? Know early, Monday morning. Real Stories Grill story one yeah early. Monday morning crew Chris White. Went to clean up the mess, and while he was picking up the trash, he noticed something. A shipping receipt so now he's like Oh i. know where I'm going to show you guys and you can run it up for me right so that Jimmy can see it. I'M GONNA. Show you the picture of course white. He looks like a man. In one sentence. Like somebody who wants to say? Do, you know what your kid did. Look at him. He looks like he's like he wants to discipline your children. This is the definition of. Of White, privilege. Here's a good one in this Chris White Privilege. Yeah, yeah, he has the privilege of sending back. He's like enough of this. Shit a Lotta camouflage. Yeah, exactly and no matter how cold it is will not wear gloves. He's also type of guy that has like owns more than one of those flashlights. You can drive over and it won't break. We'll he'll, he'll order now you get to know. And he'll walk over your conversation, be like. Did you guys say you guys need a pocket knife? What were you GonNa? Say Jimmy. I would say it's almost been pressed, but Chris Wyatt like he seems like a heart knocked dude. He's thrown away his kids toys and he's getting a new grill. A neighborhood announcements Chris wine is. I? Know Chris Lights, the guy who picked him up. He cleaned it. Oh! Yeah cleaned it up. Yeah, he's white is like he's like a superhero. Like his superhero. It'd be to deliver garbage back to people in who eludes legally, and there's a there's too dense in his truck and he only cares about one of that's right. Yeah, that's right. That's why. Quote I was picking up a Nike box and it was so wet. The LID actually tore off of it when I grabbed a an inside of it was a slip with the person's name and address, so the plot thickens here for now. Ti Chris White there you go. So I decided that maybe he should get his garbage back. White packed up all the trash into the back of his own truck, and then drove it to the address. He found on the receipt. Okay, now it is. He paid it backward. He paid it backwards is this is now like an Adele? Song you know what I mean. He's GonNa. Drive to that person's house. I'll find someone like you. The country version of Adele Song. Country Doubt yes. The farmers in Adel. Thank you more of John Michael Montgomery. So, he said I think this guy should get his garbage back packed all up back to the house. It was fairly early, which is also does a lot more of a needle move seven thirty in the morning and I knocked on his door quite abruptly, white recalled adding that he didn't think twice about going there, which is also like a me thing according to white, the person denied the Act at first. Reaction Eight. Mike Armitage I'M GONNA need this guy. I didn't even watch the last dance what does that? Do. Garbage version of the Cinderella. Let me. Wouldn't it be great if all those all that trash was like magically beautiful things, and then that's what they turned into at midnight, and the guy just got scared and left them there. That's. That's it. Listen Man. You just produce a packing slip, and then I'll say that it's mine. Hang on a second. Let me go get it literally according to White. Person Tonight the act first, but quickly changed his mood when Chris, White showed him the evidence, the shipping receiving who? He immediately admitted to it. That's what I love that turn not me at all. You got beyond. Just that quick turn of like yeah I did.

Then turned into a tourist trap. But he said those people often leave trash behind. Obviously if the garbage gets into the field are hey, it's not good for the cows. White said he doesn't regret taking matters into his hand, of course not at all without returning the dump garbage to the culprit. He said he could have gone to authorities, which may have led to a costly fine, but he chose chose to teach a lesson instead see I, told you he wants to discipline your kids. Kids he really does like I'll take an army embarrassed. The Guy I'm the county's teacher I think.

I'm saying pound him with it. This took place before the world that we're currently living with pandemic, so it was a different type of protest and actually hilarious okay. Matt Shea who's accused of domestic, Shah. Who seems like not great guy because he was accused of domestic terrorism, buy a house commissioned report last year. Even the Republicans are like they don't like them. They're like even explain away his. Right yeah, he intentionally poured. Olive oil along the steps of the Capitol building, causing significant damage, according to the state. Department of Enterprise services part of an apparent counter. To a demonstration. Here's what he was. He was part of. You will know me by my trailer. So he was part of a counter, protests where he damaged steps with olive oil and his counter protest was against the a demonstration of Satanists. Now here's my thing. Maybe gets into I. DON'T REMEMBER, but if you're a Christian Sameness believe in God as hardcore as you do. Because Satan is in the Bible. That's right, so these are just people. I understand that they're on the other side of the different areas, but when you are when you campaign, or you live your life by the word of God is his true and meaningful. That's how feel too, but I'm saying like you can't have one without the other, unless you're a hardcore sameness, and you don't believe in God, but you just believe and you Satan. Satan, but here's the thing is of Christianity Satan is like the devil, six six six anarchy and all that stuff. That's all Bible I know, but I know you guys aren't brush up on your new. We aren't. Is there anything more satanic than spilling, olive oil and trying to ruin like that's the least Christian thing to do through do unto others as you would have them do unto year so that to me is that hand of Satan? What if he's making Pesto and it? Just a little bit got tripped out the way it goes a little. Can I say that it's made so every Friday night. We've been making pizza. There's like our thing nights. We do pizza. We go we. Hit topics, we get the frozen pizza crusts from trader Joe's. It's great to come in thing, and you put either the tomato sauce or what I did. This time was I put Pesto Pesto Pesto pawn on the Pie and then the pepperoni and the cheese and goat cheese, and I went nuts, and I put it in the. We've put it right in the oven, not on anything just sitting on the greats. Yeah what I did. I realized that the that the pesto sauce bubbles up and cost down, so it fell down onto the bottom and started smoking and granted think so then we and I shouldn't be this excited about it, but then overnight. We self clean the oven I don't know if you've self cleaned enough work. Okay, it shuts in heats up to such an unbelievable level, but it like cleans as if to wipe it out as if an Elf's came in, and I'm telling you a magical being came in and. Took a little break or something. Those, you turn that you turn the oven on a certain setting in online teams it out and try it tonight. I'm telling you clean your of your oven on the inside. I didn't know our oven was blue. I came into this morning. My kids blue. I'm just saying maybe this guy's making pesto. And maybe there needs to be a self cleaning option for the steps of the Capitol building. That's all I'm saying with the how can I be a forty eight year old man with? And responsibilities and a taxpayer and a mortgage, and not understand how a self cleaning oven works. Hey, or be surprised and think that it's magic. Little Victories Dude that Satan. I ask you. A Republican from Spokane Valley is being billed for the damage to the steps and add and base of legislation. Yes. They just said he's a Republican just to say it. because. He is a he is a state represented. Oh, so he was a state representative, so he worked in the building and he was like. Let me mess with these people who demonstrated poor olive oil on the steps so that they would slip and fall Dan this is I'm not sure if they slip and fall, they could sue the government gummy. This is like. When they storm the castle, they pour like hot. Hot. Olive, oil! Big Fan of Swiss Family Robinson. He's got all sorts of little tools lined up to stop. Guys with the castle is closed because we are self cleaning the drawbridge exactly. Was Blue. So he's a Republican Spokane Valley he's being billed for the damage to the steps at the base of Legislative Building Department of Enterprises, spokesperson. Linda can't said the damage occurred on March six. Th can't hasn't smiled in four years since. The damage occurred march the same day as the demonstration at the Capitol organized by the Satanic, Temple of Washington as T dubs. If you want to go do that, you gotta go get a form signed by. I have to go get it signed by Yup. Yeah Linda you're GONNA WANNA, go on a Friday because that's the only day she's taller. Is a family picture. Please just to show Schutte just. Outside parts of your mouth up Linda. Tannock Temple had applied for and received a permit to hold a demonstration so okay, which doesn't seem very satanic of them I. To apply for the thing you, there is indoctrinated as Christian. They're just on the other side of the sheets, and you may be right. Look in many ways. The truth is what do we fear in God and the God? Fearing people they fear retribution breaking the rules right here. You got your fearing a Deity Ryan saying you're live live in two houses next door to each other on the call back, yeah! All, you do one hundred eight more fun videos from the day show people dressed in black hooded gowns, marching with black and white American flags, beating Drums, and chanting hails Satan several carried Pentagram, symbols often associated with Stainton. Isn't there you go to them? Others held a sign. Proclaiming Satan has oh. This is the counter protesting Satan has no rights God bless America.

Protesters tried to speak over them I work for a government that allows free speech. How dare these people gather? The semi also is when two six year old boys argue over whose mom or dad could beat up the other person the Amerada because they're both representing something they wholeheartedly believe in. That is never going to happen. Who like Satan and God aren't GonNa fight each other, so you really just like arguing and your hype manning fight. That's never going to happen can't get Mike Tyson to fight of Andrew Holyfield. How are they? Get God to fights eight agreed. He looked up from the edge code counter. Protesters tried to speak shaded, not respond to the request for comments. He wrote on facebook that he had cleaned the ground after the saint in his demonstration shake can be seen on separate surveillance video, carrying a bottle of olive oil. What that has to do with the devil? I do not know the devil does not like pesto. Garlic ver-, Damn. To about the devil one, the Devil Wears Prada number to the devil does not like pets hates it. Shake and be seen on several separate surveillance video, carrying a bottle of. Through Capitol Hallways on capitol grounds, and onto the stone steps that ended up being stained in some of the videos trail by a group of men and women. Who are all telling him? Don't do it. You know when they say like thunder. Don't like a new fighter has joined. Yeah, okay, so we've got the black hooded Saint Nece. We've got the WHO are not looking for a fight. They had a permanent they shot. They got assuming they just WANNA praise tail in front of a government I down here we got protesters screaming about Saints Rights and then got a state representative, pouring olive oil on a staff I gotTa Give Glory to help. What can only make this better? Is that state representative? Shay was joined by a group of men, wearing black leather vests, emblazoned with crucifixes, and calling themselves the Christian crusaders, several of them carry show Fars and ram horns. Shove a chauffeur. Is That's? That's the thing that they blow on the High Holidays Oh. Well, that's being co opted by the nicest biker gang. You don't get to keep that a Christian Crusaders. These guys are idiots. Sameness showed up to perform some sort of ritual share on facebook. We're all good opinions. Live, right. It failed. We are victorious in Christ and he granted victory today. I don't want to don't anybody. Get a skewed I am not. If you want to be Christian. Great you want to be. You want to be Jewish. Be Be a good guy. He's saying great, but this is a ridiculous story of people throwing around olive oil and. Leather, but this is no bad influence on the sadness the. Story have nothing. They are file for a permit. I showed up and did it the right way they sacrificed to. They sacrificed a baby cleanly. Yeah, Johnny Olive Oils Guy who's Brianti olive oil is. Is. Walking around and it's like he's turned this into like a religious west side story. He says Christ granted us, Victory Today. We prayed claimed and cleaned the ground and evangelize showing the ratty leaving God. Clean the radical with anything. You're doing religion I. Just tell you that one's in black leather vests the others in black robes, so the black leather vests are a hood and sleeves away from being the other people hundred percent. That's IT and they're all sleep, and they're all like three spikes on each shoulder away from being like a raiders for the red, black hole raiders fan. Funding is if somebody would just. Start at a twelfth man chant that would probably would have brought all these people in together there. You go a spokesman for the Satanic. Temple of Washington said he didn't notice any conflict with shade, so he didn't even know that. This guy was over on the settled debt guy. Are you ready for the name of the person who's WHO's a spokesperson for the Satanic Outweight Turkis? Klay Pool. which is like not weird enough to feel made up, but not normal enough to feel like you're work. Klay Pool Right Old Turkey we just focused on what we were doing. Klay Pool said. Take a lot more than match. Shea and his bottle, a salad dressing to stop us from exercise. The most shade he could throw. Off. Just small! Small if the Christian crusaders heard the the healthy just. It's like weirdly emasculating to like olive oil is like salad dressing addressing is like he brings his own salad dressing restaurants, and maybe just shave was going out to lunch and he brought. He noticed two things that I didn't notice. have no clue, but then I'm also going to drop a very specific thing about what happened. Salad A. Lot more than Matt Shea and his bottle of salad dressing to stop us from Exercising First Amendment Rights Right I. Don't know why this is so far. Eat through that shaded him. Another video shows exam hidden valley shade stain about. How long do you guys think? How many feet do you think the stain is according to the incident report that runs. Just establish the. Marble steps match shays sustain he's. Put the five eight. All right so how many feet? How long his name! Is Dan okay. He's got to pay for it on marble steps. If you're still thinking, I have a seven feet twenty seven feet, eleven feet nine inches, okay. The stain. About one hundred feet long. Out of salad dressing. Is runs from the street up the buildings marble steps, and along its base to his entry, special care must be taken when cleaning and repairing historic masonry. That's not people these are these old buildings were made a lot of really good material, or sometimes like to handle the hamlet. Was the first fact of this whole thing. Special care takes place cleaning historic masonry. Yes, and because like you know you've spilled stuff on your couch and you use I will give you a different thing, and my wife is a designer and we know this because we had, we put marble countertops on our kitchen counter and she said now listen. There are GonNa be stains on this like things are drinks are going. Going to get put on this thing and there's nothing we can do about it. It's GonNa Patina so things get on there. There's like a stain over by where our knives or hanging up right now. It bothers me to no end. It looks like a little ring, and I get so mad at the I can't get it off because I'm not doing it the right way. That is the exact example here, yes. Masonry materials are porous oils and other material can penetrate into the microscopic pores making extraction over the oil and other materials, time, consuming and difficult process. He should have to do with his own toothbrush and use that to king five. Which I assume is a local news affiliate, but I hope is just some person who's now entered story king five for a sporting goods store. Yes, I reported about shaving being billed for the damage Kent said The Washington State. Patrol was not asked to. To investigate, because guess how much build on, not intend to cause long-term damage. She compared it to a balk through a window peeping. People do not often realized the long term damage can be caused by a historic buildings with such year a seven year old kid. Who did this. Your adult? Who understands that's why says in cases like this. The cost to taxpayers makes such repairs typically handled administratively with the Responsible Party build gentlemen to end out our second story. Great Story Your. Nearest one hundred. How much do you think it costs to clean these? How much do you think Matt Shea was build for as little salad dressing stunt. You can get professional cleaner to power-wash it or figure out a way to get to get it out, but it's GonNa. Cost you. So how much do you think it is forty seven hundred dollars? Okay, sixty nine hundred dollars. One of you. Is exactly right. My God! I'm right. I. Think I'm Gone Right, I. Think I'm right I'm not gonNA. Go to the other side. Of US can't be forty, two, forty, seven, forty, seven I, said sixty nine. Okay, get your answers in town listed in the very first paragraph of the story. I love it.

Water band the upset customer from the restaurant for two years I. is that going to hold up in court? Okay, so this week Jay and I talked about this. Tally time, no, no, no!

This is the kind of place where they can't fire anyone completing over there, there's another McDonald's guaranteed to go to the other one. It's just Biographies embarrassed and acting like a jerk. This guy he should re. This is the point at which I'm like okay. This is the guy who he should be shouted down on social media. you know what I mean like this? Social media gets it right. They get it right and you can. Sometimes. I'm saying we should be able to use this to shout this guy down to make him feel small I would agree with you. I will ask you though how how? Do you think this man is. Are we going out on this? How old do you think the guy who thinks man is a loose term can't be the old humans loose term. CANTILEVER FOUR K. J.. Sixty years old and sixty years old. Dammit I thought the same thing. Sixty four sixty four years old feels all, doesn't it? Feels like old sixty four. Any any wears jeans all the time yeah right. Tha Bed. Jeans the best. Well, that's. Do you remember the last time he wears? He wears shoes to bed. Do you remember no one tells you in your twenties that someday you will not be able to sleep in Japan because I guarantee you. You slept in your genes at some point and. I have. It was like after a concert. You were staying at a friend's. That's how you got to the concert near like I'll just sleep here finally I tell you the story about when I went to. This was is a crazy to fish concert. So my first job out of my first job out of college was I worked at this place. Called Jackson Chews Jewish alcoholics chemically independent versus. Johnson. My cousin had the job. there. I just needed jobs. We compare rents stand. It was a very heavy job was basically a supplementary group that provided supplementing programs for Jews who used as an excuse. I don't want to go into a church basement to twelve step program Gosh. Is there like look? You GotTa go to the twelve step program and this doesn't mean you when you say the Lord's prayer. That doesn't mean that you. You you know this doesn't mean renounced your Judaism this is just you recovering and we'll plan all these events of other Jewish alcoholics and Jewish people who can believe dependence. You can woman network. It was a great great organization and I was like planning. Events are involved in I became friendly with some of the people some of the folks who some of the young people who were even in recovery like the whole mix. Because, I'm a friendly person and I got so one of the guys from someone who is in recovery was a huge fan, and we were I was a huge fan at the time, and he said I got tickets for show in Rhode Island in wherever providence at the. At the Providence, Civic Center Update, Civic Center, and he's like I want I want to go me and I was like cool I'm not your sponsor. You know what I mean like. Your fish, Fishman and urine recovery, and you're going to eighty nine. J. I can't believe. I agreed to go and I and And the guy's name I can't remember. I can't even say it now, but I can't remember, but anyway so so he and his big bearded dude in a really sweet guy and I connected with them really well and so. I show up to the thing, and he's not there yet I'm meeting him at this venue and then I'm. In Providence. Rhode Island I'm living in new. York City you took a train. Took it no I drove I. Think I heard we never rented a car. No, no I took a train, and then he was going to drive or something, and so so I run into friends of mine out front and I haven't seen him yet, yeah! That most prominent issue so going. They're like. Hey, listen We have some Oh, I got to keep going I'm listening to you. We have some we'd do. You WanNa get high and I was like Oh man i. don't I don't do a good idea. Mike I haven't been to A. I haven't been to a fish show and seen it over before, but I was like I'll just take a the tiniest little tiniest little and so I, smoke it and then. Then I. Ask Hey. How strong is this I just? Did that after and they're like. Oh, this is crazy enough the wrong time to ask so then I am like floored I'm like I almost can't talk and now I gotta find this. Oh, my God I find the guy and I'm holding it together as best I can't do the whole means. You're not holding me that I'm totally not holding it together, but the concert where two concerts like sit Navajo conversation. But this a bearded long-haired dude, he looks like a homeless guy, and he's at the sweetest ninety five ninety five fish, and we go and stay at our friend. This girl who who was going to who had gone to Brown University I think it was her. I think she was back at Brown. University Senior Year Twenty so? I this is the last time I slept jeans, and so we're staying at her house. 'cause it's on a winter break or spring, break or something like that and I just was like to this guy. He's like. Is it okay if we stay here and I'm like? Yes, it's OK. Meanwhile, I'm like I can I could have triggered his like relapse. Over and over and again but I but I in my mind I'm like I survived this this thing I got him through it. And I didn't I didn't make a scene and he's okay, and he wasn't talking about. There was a time during the concert was like man I wish I, could smell it. I'm like you probably shouldn't. I'm trying to Tyson on like it's bad and so they. Response. So I, go in, and I sleep up in our row. She told me wear her room. He's like I. Don't know if I feel comfortable. Sleeping in the room I'm just gonNa Sleep on the couch in the in the living room. Yeah, so at seven in the morning, and we were out until late late Wisconsin at seven in the morning I hear a woman screen. No, no. One of the roommates of this girl came back to school early Oh God and had not communicated with this other person, and there's a bearded like what appears to be a homeless laying on the couch in the house, and she screams, and the guy starts freaking out that trigger data. Thing and so I had to come downstairs and I'm like this is my friend. You know of course like he wasn't really my friends, so like I'm stumbling to remember his last name because it's a crazy. And I'm like I'm friends with this woman and it's her house, and as you're explaining it, it makes no sense. I sound like such a shyster. The Hallway and I'm like we're leaving anyway right now. We're probably on our way out of here at seven in the morning. which by the way also seems like? You're running away from something that you should. Right. And and I as I call this. Call your friend and she'll tell you that. I was supposed to be there, but I didn't mention this. Other guy was going to be staying there. That's the last time I slept off and I was lucky. I slept on my jeans because I literally. Shoes and got. Out of there, that's so great that crazy I will tell you right now that this man. Sleeps in his jeans I said sixty, one sixty, you said sixty sixty four. Yeah, he is. Thirty three years my. Young Prick. Alert you to think you deserve that much respect at thirty three I know like I can understand an done schick and understand an old man. Feeling like no one respects me in this world doesn't I can understand that line of reasoning even though he's wrong in this situation, not what he deserved. Should be shouted. Thirty three is is in young idol, meant it? Yeah, it's it's an entitlement thing Better big boy now you asked me to come around like no Tomlin mover. It's like anyone who wants to parse whether the end of the sentence went up or down, or into our down, deserves all his money back in change for the rest of his life ban for two years and shouted into a whole social media and you shouldn't.

All right Gimme a Yang has joined us friend of the show. Me Out good to see you my friend what's up gang? Miss you guys. Miss You the movie The Opening Act it's in theaters and vod digital. Everywhere this Friday October sixteenth. Only. Jimmy Yang starring in this thing but it's got bill Burr and Kim Jong and cedric the entertainer and lots of lots of top notch comedians. Neal Brennan Winnie Cummings Russell Peters Elisa slashing here I mean all all the big names. I saw the trailer I did not see the entire movie. I just saw the trailer Jimmy but the the trailer was very funny and it's hard to a comedy trailer. It really is I don't know why it's easier to do an action or horror trailer. Jokes needs so much setting and context and everything. So Nice job. Nice Job for the trailer company you don't I could have done a terrible job. We don't know and also I mean, yeah all the. Characters, and the actors you talk about in there that's just amazing. It's like really the Mount Rushmore the WHO's who of The comedy world and I loved You boxing movie that you'd Adam imagined in that movie that was Mike Tyson Roy Jones. Alley or whatever it's kind of how that felt and it was just cool to Kinda hang out whatever. But well. Yeah I just wanted to tell you. It's fantastic movie. It's so good fans. And something that you don't expect comes at the very very beginning I will just say that the peso's of verse, thirty seconds is so endearing and so sweet and so heartbreaking it's it's an unbelievable setup for comedy. Thank you and I. think that's kind of the pathos of stand up comedians. In general. We might be all laughing outside, but it comes from a painful place. It comes from some some kind of real motivation whereas it's your second divorce, your third DUI or a loved one dying or something that pro l. you into this comedy world that always find. So Fascinating S Steve Byrne who directed and wrote this of course, he's been a longtime comedian so he gets this world and all of us. We get it. You know I it and we really just want to see behind the curtains of what it is. 'cause when you see a standup special, it's the Polish finished product of ten years of work three years of material whenever maybe. But this is the first time I guess you get to see people bombing and feel that low of it. You know and see the morning radio show you gotta wake up a Kansas City to do and Funds to? Jimmy. I was talking to Chris and I I made. I made a movie called Rode Hard, which is sort of stand up at the end and Chris said, well, this could be a Prequel to that movie like my movie was about an old guy who was washed up and had yet. Oh, back on the road but this is a sort of prequel in that. It's a new guy. Getting, INTO STAND UP I love Steve Byrne he's such a decent human being. Must, be. At the shoots are I mean how many days was the shoot nineteen shoot days? That's it like we didn't get them taste like I remember you saying this because you know I'm longtime listener to show that when it comes to budget the difference between an Indian like a big movie, it's not the action stuff, right? It's how many takes. Time on set, and we really we shot a bunch of pages every day. Yeah. It's the budget is about the time and it's also about the movement like. We were shooting the hammer we went to pierce college and probably shot seven scenes and just seven different places all within one hundred feet like this is going to be her office at the courthouse, and this is going to be the construction site where at the same place we just went outside. All this weird found stuff I mean we couldn't. At some point I did a scene with a lunch truck because the restaurant wouldn't let a shoot in the Talian restaurants. So we just went outside call, the lunch truck and the lunch truck showed up like. You just don't get the time to set up like like a lot of run and gun and you can't be precious with it. You just gotTa live in that moment scene by scene day by day and again, Steve such a gentleman. Must've been nice to have him as a director you great and I mean the story like I said, it just spoke to all of us. You know it's something that all of us could relate to and it's really based on his life all the stuff that crazy stuff that happens in the second act ends up on the bottom of this girl's trailer while her. Cop Boyfriend comes back then all happen to him. The main difference is apparently all the girls just flocked Steve at every city. He goes to and I'm like this actually happens on the road I gotta work so hard to get laid like what is this? He's turning down girls what's going on but I think you know all the tribulations and stuff we can can all relate to all of it? Yes. Steve's good-looking Steve What are you trying to say Adam? What are you trying to say about me though I'm saying Steve is good look he's He's right amount of Asian. Jimmy. How to couch it he's just right. Yeah. Like Paprika. You don't eat a ball of Paprika his. Own over. The opening act is three, call the role hard you need like inbetween guy to Kinda for me to transform into you Adam, you need a Steve Burn as the second. Is the last one trilogy. It might be a big job for me turning into you. I Love I love that Jimmy. I like that I can hang around long enough to see everyone's career just just blossom and motor long and comedy specials come out and you see him at the comedy clubs and Shop in the movies and I. It's it's Nice it's nice when you take motivated guys who are relatively sober and have a good work ethic you know you think guys like Joe, coy or. Guys like Bill Burr. The guys, hosts and Saturday night live a that guy was a kind of knock around guy for a long time. He was you know knock around standup comedian. It's. It's nice to see these guys come into their come into their own. So comedy clubs for you right now as it pertains obviously, you're an La Guy La is all close down. But what about? What about beyond? Are you doing any dates? I want to but I didn't have any plans because lucky enough. I shot finish my special last. November. So I didn't really have. A ton of new material I was going to take a break anyways and then Kobe hit announced focusing my energy in writing. screenplays and some pitching couple shows, and right now I'm actually I'm in Vancouver I'm a my hotel right on. Vancouver were shooting a movie here from that flex everything is moving to Vancouver tail. Has such a shit show in America and everything seems pretty pretty normal. Here you can go out to restaurants indoor outdoor dining, which still being careful because if one of us get sick hope production shuts down you know. But yeah, feel feel safe and it feels normal which is kind of Nice is Vancouver the new Toronto because I. Feel like everything was into everything moved to Toronto and now everything's in Vancouver. Yeah, maybe I action never shot anything in Canada and Vancouver's Great. I feel very good here because Asian people are the majority. Of San Francisco so I'm I'm killing it. You remember US saying you can be to. Asian. Also. That's not just individuals like Jimmy. So they've become a little. You Know Look Jean Claude van Damme is their great. Couple more folks that kind of looked like him would probably balance things out a little bit. Looking for balance. That's all I. Don't. drowsy. Steve Burns. Not, Asian enough of an cooper he's just right. That's right chess, right Look. It's not all about Asians. There's a black version of this obviously. A Hispanic version? Could you be too white for something? Oh, come on. please. Nba I work with Bonnici for a number of years. We had our differences, but I'd never felt threatened. Okay. Yeah Vancouver is Great I. Think I went to I think I went to Jimmy's Bachelor party in Vancouver and I don't know if I went to Mike August well. Yeah. So that's how you know it's good. To Bachelor parties in a row and it's beautiful it's like walkable. It's very kind of European without being too far away you can. You can get pretty quick from from La Pretty much straight shot. Yeah and this is how I figured on new city like right now I'm in Yale towns like Kinda nice part of town. But then I quickly realized I'm like Oh. This is like West Hollywood where like the Bush white people are too for me you know and then I went to Richmond, which is like Monterey Park, which is a all the old Asian people from like Hong Kong what get great food. So I'm just figuring neighborhoods correlating them to la neighbor Oh this is like Santa Monica Tau. It's funny. Yeah I guess I guess that's I. Guess That's the personality it'll. It'll take. There's a sea wall there. You can ride your bike all the way around the place on a seawall. You can go sit out and watch the planes land in the Bay and have a have a beer out on out on patio. It sounds awesome I the real estate there must be insane right now I mean it's getting up there, but honestly I think it's going to. Keep going up because off productions going there like how Atlanta's real estate went when all the film industry when there and Chinese people got a lot of money they investing a lot in these houses I heard from my driver that there's a tax. For. If you first of all, if you're not Canadian buying something a candidate charging extra fifteen percent envy leave vacant as just an investment property charge an extra whatever percentage. So yeah, it's it's getting pretty jacked up. So it's come one come all from out of town and leave your tax money. Yeah. Because I think back in the day every well first of all, every Chinese person has at least one relative in Vancouver. That's a fact my aunt lives here She has very successful catering business for Chinese food but I, think back in the day like. Immigrating to America there's a long line and like lottery right but I think to Canada there's like investment I don't know if they're still less investment migration. So if you put enough money by houses or stimulate the local economy, they will give you their version of a green card or citizenship down the line. I. Think how it is now and honestly I'm it's interesting. It's the first time there's a park down the street from me call the David Lamb Park first time I've seen a park named after Asian guy in North America, very proud of it. Isn't good money. Yeah. Yeah. So again, there's there's a balance to be struck, and maybe park has crossed a little bit now speaking of Atlanta Tyler Perry's media. To, black the. matere not tyler. Medina. Crossed. Forgot. Say you get stopped getting also I cannot in case I guess some twitter flack I'm just GonNa shut up shut up. And let Adam do the Damn I. Not I can I got enough I can destroy my own career on my out. All right. Should we do a little news and Jimmy can sit in with the news and Gina Grant? Gino. Break. Lou. For G. Grant Trump. The. Draw downs. Gina Gina. News with Gene Grad A, and let me slide in quick spot here for we get Roland. Red. Cap. That's what I want to talk about comfort done right. Making work wear and uniform since nineteen twenty three for the essential workers making our community stride clothing for many industries, automotive culinary manufacturing, waste management, oil blocked coveralls, resist engine fluids, and the oil just beads up and rolls right off. That's what I'm talking about. Latest project is for the road here the truckers that got a trucker tab, the trucker tabs, a fifty thousand dollar tab at cracker barrel feed our long haulers, and you can check it out at trucker tab. com again, these are the guys keeping everything supplied. So you know were calling everyone at a hospital, a hero or at a supermarket here but what about people bringing all the stuff into the hospital and to the supermarket those heroes need a little love to. So just go to trucker tab, dot com and donate red cap work where dun-rite Gina Sir although I think it was just Canadian thanksgiving. Holiday that's not being celebrated to my knowledge in Canada or being being acknowledged is Columbus Day and down here it is a celebrated might be the wrong word. So protesters in Portland pulled down statues of Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln on. Sunday night of rage over the Columbus Day holiday organizers called the event indigenous Peoples Day of rage and sought to protest the holiday named in honor of Christopher, Columbus the crowd used chains and blow torches to remove the Statue of Roosevelt why Roosevelt Historians noted he was hostile toward native Americans moments. Later they toppled statue of Lincoln and then smashed windows at the Oregon Historical Society unclear whether any arrests were made. At this time. Yeah, lot of unbridled rage out in the street and I guess you know in terms of toppling statues anything that's older than fifteen minutes is ripe for the picking right that person did something. There was like, well, they're owned a slave or they look the other way while someone else owned a slave or they were they were hostile to the indigenous people not going to be a lot of folks from our history that you couldn't get. It's kind of like. Here's the here's the deal. Me To is great except for Al Franken gets chewed up and spit out by me to I. Think it's like some of these statues. We don't take them all down. Al Franken doesn't have to be destroyed by by me to we can just give them a slap on the wrist and keep walking. I wonder if people are even I'll tell you what they need to tear down. They need to tear down that God damn. Kennedy Monument that they have in in Texas. We talked about that. All you just think it's an is so. First reasons of course. To rebuild it, they just have to tear. Tasteful that a night of rage. For indigenous. People right and on behalf of yeah. How many indigenous people think were involved with that night of rail boy less than ten percent. Significantly, Iran, they're the bulk of these people are just county forty, one year old blonde chicks, and they're just running around fucking burning everything down as well the. Bill Burr said on SNL that woke movements been hijacked by white women it has. He believed then there's probably something to be said for your analysis I would I would like to see. See what percentage of study the game film Dawson's see what percentage of folks were wearing native garb in the in the night of rage for the Indigenous People I. I will I will bet you be hard to pick out many indigenous people in that in that group, you know what I'd be. Okay with since. I don't necessarily have a dog in this fight even though Columbus not like the Jews. Ju I think he was I mean we at least in Hebrew school year pro ties pretty anti Semitic. Views would fit in with. Talk. Yeah. We're Jews not to be part of the colonization process but wh- from the way we were taught a lot of the the ships to sail were robbed. They would rob the Jews, their jewelry and stuff, and that's how they'd finance the showroom. Shared a Ham Sailing. In wooden ship with A. A lot of combat Ching. batching and not great deckhands the historical. Chew timing sheepshanks and scurry up that main poll. Fad with that we're we're desert people we're not water people right no. But I think can't we all just agree in two thousand twenty that between the United States of America and the Cook Islands and I Land. All over the world. Can we just not say you found it if it was already lived on can we just can we just go ahead and say you didn't discover something that people already lived on does reflect. A Eurocentric point of view which I discovered this discovery something that's already being used. Yeah. I feel that should be for the Moon Mars saying I will give that designation I'm sure that'd be nice. Somebody won't. Somebody's GonNa find trouble with that thought twenty years from now. But if you're the first person on the moon than you may claim it in the name of Spain but after an Arctic, even Everest, the first to literally be somewhere the means. Tattooed Horn but easy easy on America. Yeah. I think we can all agree on that. So twitter is making it think of America. As a fixer upper. And we just kind of came and. Get some curb appeal. Oh, okay. Down a little side killed some. Indians. What I'm saying he's made it a little more bill blanket. Yeah. Now Alison. You can't be you can be to Jewish. Sorry I'm sorry. Go ahead. So twitter's making it harder for tweets to go viral ahead go so. It's all good. Making Alison Rosen. You wasn't apologizing for us to talk. To tackle. To combat the spread of misinformation, it's going to be very difficult or at least more difficult than you're used to re tweet for this upcoming election new. York. Post reports that users hit the re tweet button on a tweet will be taken to a screen where they can add commentary to their re tweet users can skip the commentary, but that will lead to extra steps to finalize the. They just don't want people just doing what they're used to and just re tweet reach retreat and making something that might have misinformation election misinformation go viral without at least having to do a little extra footwork just put like a Smiley Emoji, and then re tweet is. An opinion. Exactly so things like they say we hope it will encourage everyone to consider why they're amplifying tweet. Meanwhile, anyone who attempts to re tweet tweet that's been flagged with misinformation by twitter will receive a full screen alert telling them that contains disputed information as well as a link to additional information on the topic just to slow down the the wave of tweets especially in elections times. How I wonder what the vetting process is for a lot of this stuff like. Think about all the covert stuff. Yeah like you know. A lot of data's coming back, saying open the schools, the kids need to go to school. So something there was a time when maybe that got flagged but right, how do we decide if you take the nation and if you said, all right, we'll just take the nation and you pretty much split them in half. You can split them in half with governors and mayors, scientists and epidemiologists and stuff, and you could find a huge pool of people that were like got open the schools. It's hurt kids healthy. It's safe. Then you could find a huge group of people that keep it closed down not safe not helping. So then who's who is the arbiter? Who decides which one of those opinions is right. I don't I. I don't have that information, but I'm assuming they're probably the I would imagine the algorithm traces it back to the original source. So it comes from proud boys. Dot Com maybe gets flagged if it comes from ANTIFA DOT. Net, it might get flagged. That's that's a guess of Mine I. Don't reminds me. I gotta get a meeting coming up. So this kind of. Speaking a private. Yeah Here's it'd be fair to me. I thought a proud boy was a sandwich when I walked into the place. With Fried Shrimp as my dog is always walk talking about talking in New Orleans. So I saw the sign I walked in. and. Then, I listen for a while they. came. For the sandwiches stayed for the good advice. This some. Provocative clock compelling work twice a day. Anyway I thought it was a sandwich place so that My Story. Priest in speaking Louisiana a priest in. Louisiana. was busted recently for having a threesome on the altar of his church with two dominatrix is all three of them arrested for obscenity Oh, it gets even better thirty-seven-year-old Reverend Travis Clark is the pastor of a Catholic Church in Pearl River Louisiana and he was arrested a few weeks ago after somebody walked by the Church at night hearing. Noises and saw the following one travis was having a threesome with two women on the altar to he was wearing his priest robes and using adult toys three the women were both. dominatrix. is for their hold on this all through stained glass like. That's part of why they're in trouble a fucking nanny cam and their person see everything it's a nightmare walk by churches no class you can see through I haven't seen. That in the next sentence but not I mean not a full answer but a little bit. There was stage lighting and at least two cameras filming. The whole thing was clearly visible from the street all auctions, all the productions leaving town. I. took a video called the police travis was arrested on obscene obscenity charges and the and. The two dominatrix took a video in two thousand, five minutes later called the. When he was in his refractory. A few days after the arrest, the New Orleans, archdiocese performed A. On the altar to restore its sanctity what do you do in that ritual just? Clean. Up that sex with a virgin. Women were the opposite of that. That's how you do it. That's also if they're to dominatrix. Ace and sex toys that means the sex toys being used on the dude, right? Oh I like Krista. Don't use sex toys, people dominating you I. Don't know very good. Maybe do now like now. Let do my research. Urine down you're you're right if they in fact are dominatrix day the you're getting the business end of the deal though not them. Yeah. Yeah. Get to sneak in Areas Stewart. Yeah. No, it's true. You try. They'd have to be doing that and also if you're the kind of guy who thought that would be a good idea. You'd probably be that guy. Right. It's your lifestyle. Go go bigger go home. and. This guy was a man of the cloth I mean he was he signed bona fide and he was he was all of that. Yeah. He was wearing his robes, his priestly robes. And he was filming this. Crew Lighting. The rest of us and it was a gift and was he was at his parish what's he working? That would see would be if he wasn't caught what he'd be up Monday morning delivering. Homily. says. A thirty seven old Reverend Travis Clark in is the pastor of a Catholic church in Pro River. So I would imagine it's his church he you'd have the keys. Our, lives there. Will be more understandable to do it at somebody. Else's church offense the bold move. Yeah. Like Yeah. Like stealing someone's mascot at a football game. Yeah. You're like. Flying over your ex's house in dirigible and having sex in the basket. Gondola. We've done that vault. So the ritual was the arch bishop. Process, down the aisles of the church sprinkling the walls with holy water then anointed the altar with Krim pouring the oil onto surface has called criticism is. Just. Oral on its surface and spreading it in his hands. Informative Talk. Like where? You have to you have to have a higher power priest jerk off to cleanse your other sins write. A lot about this jimmy eye for an eye A. Shot for chat I mean come on. I A. Point for the sake. Yeah. That's all just weird. My thing is. What I would I'd light off a couple holiday doger's. Stuff they use that apartment to get rid of roaches. How can you go wrong with a holiday foggier? Get like the six pack from Home Depot and you pull pull the Wick on all of them and just let it sit overnight you real atmosphere. Put Some newspaper down. Wiped up, get the swifter out wiped the place down the next morning that'll kill about anything that's in there also. They concentrated a new altar, the church, and they ordered the removed and ritually burned. To. The. Archbishop Yeah. From my recollection of the Catholic, church, archbishops in charge of several churches like he's in charge of the archdiocese. So he might keys you may have been scouting for a few months like. Good. For no set interesting is he done is he fired I feel like psalms bishops tenured they don't ever get. But this district was brought up on charges. Does that mean fire? Not GonNa do some time and they come right back watch spotlight. It doesn't mean he's fired. All right another depressing movie. Ninety one. All right. What else we got? So they got it's like we got constant crate this alter because it's covered with Krizan I'll feel weird. Sexual to me. All right shed. So this is something that I came. I thought you would be very interested in, but I'm going to warn you in advance I don't have the math on it. Please don't ask me researchers and Australia report the human body is closing on the fastest possible marathon time predicting someone may break the two hour mark by twenty thirty two. So after building a statistical model for male and female marathon world record year to year Dr, Angus Johnson estimates the fastest time. Any living human can run a twenty six point two mile race is one hour, Fifty, eight minutes and seconds. He predicts the fastest time possible for a female is two hours five minutes thirty one seconds. Women Yeah at the current rate in which world records fall. This'll be reached sometime in the next two decades. He says. So in a normal year over eight hundred marathons or run around the world fastest time ever that we have for a man is two hours one minute thirty, nine seconds. And Kenyan woman two hours, fourteen minutes, four seconds. So they I read the article there's a long mathematics algorithm how they got there and I thought I cannot break this down. the way they figured it that literally a human being cannot go faster than run this in in less than one hour, fifty, eight minutes and five seconds it is. We don't make enough of it but if you would like to do a world class time in the marathon, you're going to have to average under five minutes a mile for twenty six miles, and if anyone's gone to a junior high track and try to get around it four times and under six minutes. It's devastating. You'll be vomiting halfway into that. Now the deal is they run twenty six miles faster. Than average time that is much faster than you could do one mile, your best one mile, your best one mile and I would argue probably your best half mile if you doubled up, that time would be better. would be slower than their twenty-six six that they average. Also women are catching men in the marathon. I don't know that you know the best time for man is a one oh two. Woman is to fourteen. It's about twelve minutes and change but I feel like back in the day was a half hour. Off Jimi I I got A. I. Got a thought. You tell me. Every year, the the winner of the marathon are always the disabled guys in the super wheelchairs. Now, they're trikes a three wheel thing they're made in Germany ship like a rocket ship like a rocket they're made out of carbon fiber and composite stuff and these guys are it's America's Cup on wheels. These guys are just zooming along at forty miles an hour. These guys in the wheelchairs and what are calling wheelchairs they're not. CATAMARAN's or Whatever rocket ships These guys are doing it in like an hour and ten minutes like they are doubling up on the Kenyans on this. I think it's a little out of hand I feel like they're relying too much on technology and my suggestion is they have to do it in the old style hospital wheelchairs the to push. Your wife has triplets. Push her out the door in old school whatever the local hospital is go Gimme eight of those and you have no added or or I think just for us you know non, we'll people to do it. Maybe they have to rocket ships. That's their advantage we get to do royds. Even the playing field I don't know that royds help. I think in that particular sport royds don't help but juicing would recovery and all that doping, whatever what is the time for the fastest marathon on wheels Jimmy owes got a punch out in a second. I have a one hour twenty minutes one hour twenty minutes. So those guys are drunk at an applebee's across from the finish line when the Kenyans role in. And they get the Yawn and look at their watch and go. Oh, that's cute. Yeah I. THOUGHT WE'RE GONNA meet Applebee's at New Jesus Christ. Okay. Is this are we in the same race? Excuse me I'm confused. Okay because I stepped on a bouncing betty in Vietnam but. Evidently. Hasn't a me down. You know if anything if anything, I'm just trying to avoid those kinda awkward conversations. Make sense in the only way, we can do it good looking at Jimmy O Yang Body the opening act out in theaters Vod and digital this Friday October sixteenth failed with every comedian, but me is in this movie. and.

Do One more Gina Grand All, right? Let's see. Well, let's do this since it's it's holiday season and even I'm surprised editorially at the basic -ness of the top ten costumes being searched on Google they come out with this list every year and I really thought with everything going on in the news there'd be a little more variety but. If, you take a wild guess at one of the top ten things. I. Promise You. You'll get one. Choline costumes being searched right now they're adult costumes. I mean just I think it's just in general a trump costume is up there no, it is not what? Those basic that to Jagger King with that movie series is that out this year? I think just broad. COP nurse. Sounds. Okay value. So this is the top ten list all speed through it because in a title of sexy ballot and things like crazy things you have Spiderman Ninja Devil fortnight. In general Angel Clown Rabbit, Harley Quinn and dinosaur people are not feeling very creative right now and who can blame them. Harley Quinn is the new. Look hot and tight shorts outfit but I need them all of labor yeah. Yeah. I'M GONNA favorite. Holiday Costume Yeah Yeah I. Think the ultimate. Workout Dude Shave chess guy is baby. When the guy just puts the diaper on has. Really just him showing the packs and the Delta it's off all-party. And it's always sad because traditionally it's fucking cold outside on Halloween and the guy goes baby is literally just wearing a loincloth the entire time and he could cut glass walk around like that. But We're so halloween the people even our people trick or treating ours it allowed is that's what we can't figure out now that they they went from banning it to do your thing headlines has discouraged. That's the thing, but we don't condone it. So that's unlike what are we going to do with a five year old get him all dressed up. Get all excited and they just see if anybody puts their light on it's sad. I did people. Did the Lakers. Won The championship. Yesterday's we tape this that people take to the streets and Get busy out there had. Probably, get into that. Okay. So maybe we'll say that Jeff But Did. Nothing you can do about that. All right. Let's bring it home genus. You got it. I'm Gina Grad, and that's the news. Was the news with Gina Grad. Well last but not least, there is Gyco what's scary. Not Having Auto Insurance and that's why you gotta go with the Geiko. GEICO's going to save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance, and by the way you could do a boat you can do home I think our V whatever motorcycle whatever you want to ensure you can do it with Geico. So you stop thinking about how much you're GONNA pay an automotive insurance and Motorcycle Insurance, RV, whatever you like and save that fifteen percent or more with Guy Co. all right Brian is going to hang out because bill hand stock is our guest and all balls and he wrote a book of the I don't have his.

Two quick headlines brought to you by online the Great Joe Morgan. Second Baseman on Cincinnati's big red machine has passed away Morgan the reds when the seventy five and seventy, six world series he was mvp of both. Hall of Famer, often remembered for that iconic elbow twitch in the batter's box thing that he did which I loved ten time. All Star. And after playing daisy was broadcast, who had kind of a nice way of translating baseball strategy in Layman's terms. Broadcaster. Yeah he was. He was really it was I'll introduce our guest bill hands stock who's got a book out and we'll get back to Jonas Second I. Promise you a great main event. We'll talk about WWe I don't know much about it, but Brian doesn't Sodas Bill. Good to see a bill. Yeah, good to see you as well. Thanks for having me. So Joe Morgan how old was he? GonNa Seventy Jones. Eight seventy seven really Eddie seven. Yeah. I don't feel that old. Now and he had a loose some. Rare form of poly neuropathy neuropathy. Guys have when I was a kid I felt like. Like the Dallas Cowboys Offensive Lineman, do the up down move before they got the. Stance and show Oregon had his chicken wings APP and like people had their own stuff working and I kinda unique to them and the kind of stuff you could emulate like when you're playing little league, you do the chicken. Or you do the up down thing and Pop Warner I. Everything's everything's kind of like cars are now like you drive on the freeway and you go is that an audi eighty seven that's a Honda Cord Oh. They look the same everything the wind tunnels to watch everything and everything just kind of the same now. You had rick Perry shooting free throws underhand. You guys you can. You can That is genuinely unique Chris find clip of Johnny Cueto the pitcher for the giants he has that stop-start hesitation. Like, wind up and it's truly unique. I've not seen anything else like that and that's one of the few examples that still exists. Yeah. Kind of yeah. kind of that. Yeah. Yeah baseball has a little little more of that fortunately. Also. We should congratulate the Los Angeles. Lakers won their seventeenth NBA Crown Twelfth Year in L. A. The first five. Were in Minneapolis way back when the players were like work boots on the floor and said stuff like tonight, we might break forty. So. And they did have people flocked to staples and there were cops breaking up a giant. Celebration look like Texas it was crazy. They look like Detroit after the. Win It was a little nuts. you think about this shorts they wore back then to like all right guys up those belts we're going to work tonight and a Bob you wanted to get a little more scout Polish on those shorts or starting to feign. They were only six inches long and they still had a cut V. Inverted V at. At the seem to give them a little more room you know. Around yeah. It's you be like you're going this speedo. So confining I don't feel like A. Bill I feel like we should talk to you about about your book I can talk about all day. Guys in. The book is out by the way we promise you a great main event is unauthorized wwe history and out today through all and Amazon and anywhere you get books what would surprise us the most in this book will. Probably just taking a look at the WW version of what they say history is in professional wrestling versus. What the actual story of a wrestling has been throughout history and the fact that Debbie East riding their own history as the last major company standing at least until you know this past year. Is Not new to the history of professional wrestling almost since day one, the people who've been putting on professional wrestling the promoters have been the earliest professional wrestling promoter sort of got in bed with sports writers early and wined dined him and said. We're the biggest town where the best are are stars of the best, and here's why and then got those journalists told their stories for them well back then it was largely Craig. Wrong pleased. But it was largely regional, right like you had to promote your regional. Had the Atlantic. Coast or you had youngest midwest sort of thing. Sure. was, of course by design because you know the Internet didn't exist. Cable television limitations of the day. Sure share. So you know Vincent Man's family the McMahon's largely operated out of the northeast which was just short handed to as New York, and then you had southern Raslan which was carved up into Texas into Florida into the Memphis area, and then you had Saint Louis was a hot spot. And then out out here on the West Coast, you had Ray Lewis and some other people who were doing la territory. Then there a bay area territory with a cow palace. So knows all carved up in the different areas but. Every. So often even starting back from the nineteen, ten, nineteen, twenty every. So often there would be a big expose that would come out about how wrestling is actually legitimate and they would sort of take the bottom out of the business for handful years and get back again on there would be another big expose that would come out maybe the most famous of those in the Nineteen Thirties There was a book called the fall guys that came out and it was A. Book. That was released nationally enrolled wive sort of hey, here's here's how wrestling isn't real. But the truth that book is that it was written by people who are in league with. One of the promoting area. So, it was a targeted expose. It wasn't the real expose. So even that like that formative book of like here's US pulling the wool off the entire industry was itself Cafe, which you know is wrestling shorthand for making believe that. Putting up the pretense that all of Israel what how big is wrestling right now. We'll put cove at aside from that but right now, how big is it? Of course, in the eighty S, it had huge resurgence with all these names that we all known Brian knows all them. Where's it now compared to then? That's that's actually a really interesting question because while the TV ratings have are the are the lowest they've been since pre hulk Hogan the pro, the television ratings. which a lot of personal fans fixate on is not even the tip of the iceberg in terms of the story of the popularity of professional wrestling right now for pro wrestling in the past few years has actually had a huge moment of the an independent wrestling scene really exploded the international wrestling soon, really exploded a few years ago. The wind is definitely killing. Yeah Women's Women's wrestling is exploding more and more all the time especially with w right now but a few years ago. Wrestling exploded in England which not allow foresaw the United Kingdom and Ireland and England, all have massive independent wrestling scenes just come come up and do great and fans over here getting super into it. Japanese wrestling went through a huge renaissance recently New Japan wrestlers at the forefront of that and fans over here stay up until one, two, three, four in the morning on the West. Coast to watch the major events in in Japan that go on. A New Japan is brought events over here that have done sold out crowds new Japan actually in in in concert with ring of honor, which is a United States wrestling independent wrestling promotion that's actually owned by cinch Sinclair Broadcasting. The joint ring, of honor, New Japan show sold out Madison Square Garden last year, which was the first time a wrestling event that wasn't a wwe wrestling event was held in Madison Square Garden in decades. They sold it out instantly I was picturing when you're saying that Japanese wrestling fans at four am is picturing the soccer pubs. The thing six am and they're drinking Guinness. Sake pub where I open it in Santa Monica, interested in. Japanese rest they'd be the best fans world like they clean up after themselves. I wouldn't have I wouldn't go into the women's bathroom and seeing someone kick the Tampon machine off the wall. Good alcoholics people. All right well, the book is called the we promised you a great main event. It's unauthorized wwe history and it's available as we speak on Amazon and beyond Jeff. You got another Well, let me hit a bet online here, and then we'll get to your segment. Bet. Online that's why I'm GONNA say football is in full swing. Melby playoffs or here.

Our exclusive partner podcast one don't forget Promo Code podcast one for your sign up bonus today Ben Online your online sportsbook experts I was watching that game that Sunday night game with my son. And of course, I'm rooting. Against the SEAHAWKS concerned the rams division in Rams are foreign one now or whatever, and the seahawks are undefeated and they could have been foreign one and okay why not? At a certain point. Miraculously. They're. They're losing the game. They're they're. It's it's the end of the. Vikings Lowly Vikings, and the game is over, and now the ball is on the five yard line. and. The Vikings have the ball and there's two minutes left and its fourth in about nine inches. And they're up. By five points. So. They could hand the ball off. And get a first down and the game's over. Or. They could kick a field goal. and go up by eight points in which case. Russell Wilson and his seahawks would have less than two minutes to go the length of the field after the kickoff. And score touchdown, and then score a two point conversion, and then that wouldn't give them the win. That would then send it into overtime right and I'm not conservative at all. But I was looking at my son going just kick the ball. You ever feel you have a twenty three yard field goal you kick it and. Once you kick this field goal. The other team has to go the length of field scorn under two minutes then get a two point conversion, and then that will just get you to overtime. Because, it doesn't change the to mess do score a touchdown, but it adds the onus of the two point conversion. They then tried to run the ball. Got Stuffed. Russell Wilson came in with buck, fifty, seven left. Completed a fourth down like hail. Mary they had a fourth and ten want the whole length of the field scored on the last play fourth down no time on the clock in. Minnesota Vikings football I mean. Look. I. Never Harp on coaches for bit not being conservative. But this particular case to send out the field goal take the points. Also, what does other team want you to not do and I would say kick that field goal but it was raining pretty hard. So maybe that that factor but. That was God damn miraculous like it's a high at the time. Sorry just let me finish this thought at the time they were deciding whether to kick the field goal or try to punch it in six inches and get a first down the chances at that time of the seahawks winning that game had to be way less than three percent. Because either they're going to move the ball six inches and the game's going to be over or they're gonNA kick a field goal, and essentially the Games got to be over like that thing was done. Sorry. Brian. You mentioned maybe because it was raining, they want to bring the field goal kicker I was playing against the field kicker in fantasy following along and he he made a forty seven yarder fifty something in that game. So I don't think the coach was hesitant to bring field goal kicker for lack of confidence. Yeah and that was literally a field goal from the five. Yeah. That was. An extra point style feel go. All right. At this point you would know just not not a bank everything kirk cousins called a great game right and not only that but Russell Wilson has pulled so many wins out of his ass over the last five years ready Levy Pecan to put the ball in that guy's hands at the end of the game. Yeah, and it was horrible decision. All Right Jeff you got A. Bed Online and another story if you want it, whatever you wanted to what you WanNa hit the the bet on line.

He was in crazy rich Asians and he's got an awesome new stand up comedy special. That's out right now on Amazon prime. Please give it up for the great and powerful Jimmy. Oh. Yeah Hang Rogan experience. Joe Rogan podcast. Hey brother. Joe Scraped senior. Great seeing a fellow comedian that I don't think I've been inside of comedy clubs seen any commitment to months. Now it's weird. It's like they're trying to get it out of our system to try to like like if we're junkies if we're comedy junkies, we've gone to a rehab. You have to live a regular person. Off I mean I've gotten past a phase of like 'cause back in the day. If I didn't do, stand up for a week. I'll get depressed. Is there's nothing else going on in my life? But now I got other stuff. Going I can do writing whatever, but I feel bad for like the road, guys. And the open microbes that just coming up oh. Yeah and I'm sure you've done this a lot of inviting you to do virtual virtual stand up comedy shows on Zoom they. Did that is the worst idea on the fucking planet. Bro! Even great comics look terrible on those and they can record you. Exactly, and you record you looking terrible bombing. Just. It's just not the right place. It's like let's play basketball underwater. Yeah, that doesn't work. But that shows you. How desperate people are they would put their whole material on the line to do virtual. No real people audience just to get the rocks off Dave Chapelle got a very unique solution. He's doing shit in his backyard. He sent me well, not his backyard. His friend has a wedding pavilion, so he set up this thing at a wedding pavilion. All of it is co vid safe liquor that as Dave onstage in Ohio at a wedding pavilion. Oh Wow. That'd be where people get married and Dave's up there doing stand up. Yeah, well, he's so good. He doesn't need like a low ceiling packed seats. He just needs a crowd and you know he also I think. He's just he's A. he just figured out how to. He's like there's going to be a way to get around this. I'm going crazy. Yeah, it's gotTa be a way and doing it outside separating everybody following all the COVID requirements. The governor actually had approved this. Really Yeah Yeah. He's in Ohio so the governor of Ohio approved all this. This happened like recent just doing he just started doing. He texted me a couple of days ago. Saying it was gonNA take like four days to work kinks out. We're making history over here. Joe Rogan. And then next thing you know, he's often running this i. mean comedy clubs probably gotTa be lasting to open up right now. Not The last thing I think like staples center shit like that. Big places that's going to be the last thing. Are Slowly started there. It is boom. What does this Brooklyn Vegan? It's just like boys that fraught with peril. People that are really into being from Brooklyn and people that are really into telling you. There Vegan together at last. Speaking of improvisation. I always very jealous because I think, my buddy, ben shorts and Thomas. Middle Ditch they did. improvising show on Netflix right and that is the ultimate hack to people like step, take like my first special took me ten years, and now these guys can crank out five in a day. Improvised. Doing here. Well I. Remember the first time. I saw you is the Improv. Kill in that little tiny room of death. That lab is death. Everybody eats shit in that lab. That is the worst ever since they've remodeled it. That's half the room a bar. Yes, and then there's pillars in front of the stage and right next to us where the door is people coming in the door? There's all those Chitchat and dock and buying tickets. It's right there, but you were killing and I was like damn. This is legit funny because you have to be. Funny to kill in that bizarre. I in that room seen a lot of people. Eat Shit in that room. I. It's a tough Romance. Sometimes YOU WANNA. Start in that small room and then do another set in a big room, so you go home. Happy I did the wrong way. The worst room that I came to the little room. It was like ten people in there and h Shit. I said you completely forgotten, and then you just like well. I'm a piece of Shit. You, stand up not only that I strolled in cocky because I just killed. I'm like I know how to kill fucking professional here. went up in there and bombed. It's just a terrible setup. They know it though they've remodeled that. Improv more than any other fucking club I've ever even heard of why the all setup was fine. They don't listen they just they just say. I got an idea and everybody goes okay great so like they put a new green room that you have to duck to get into seen that new green room it's upstairs at no one's ever gonNA use ever. And then you go down the stairs from that new green room, and it takes you right to where the stages wait the the one with the piano and stuff. Okay. Talk in green rooms. It's the dumbest setup of all time. The main room is a great room now. Great Room. It's like it's one of the all time classic rooms. They have fucked that up. I still think the Improv in La. It's my favorite place a great place and they show me love like early on. You know it's really page. It's been great repayment. Or awesome salt of the Earth both those. It's a nice environment. It just was weird. The how to kind of wait in the hallway before you go on stage, and so you kind of got molested by weirdos would come out nasty questions while you're trying to get. Your brother was sometimes as a single guy. That's actually that might be the good moved on. Laugh factory. You D set You get the fuck out. You don't get to meet nobody you know, Improv. You said you hang out at the bar. Some girls come talk to you like you know. You have to swim through some weirdoes. To weirdoes, it's fine, and some dudes will just wedge themselves between you and a girl to write. If you're trying to chit chat with a lady, go. Hey, Jamie Hi, Jimmy! You were really funny. I gotTa Talk to you about something I'm I'm starting a virtual comedy club and I'd love to. Have you be a part of it. There's been a lot of pitches that I inadvertently said yesterday, because I was half drunk at the bar. Hey Man. Let me tell you about this show in. Silverlake. It's Kinda near Echo Park, but really it's inboard heights, but. Great Open MIC man. You know Jamie Kennedy done it. You gotta come, do it? I was like. Sure why don't you send me an email and the next email I? Get I completely forgot about the interaction. Get. He's like so. I got Jones show team so good. You're GONNA do fifteen. What? Town. Why can't say that because I? Did I. Did I agree to this? Because I don't remember I was drunk, so I was. Sure how come and I, get suckered into these terrible things. Yeah, you gotTa know how to say no. It's very important. Yeah, very important well. That's the thing about like the open mic community. There's always some dude got some kind of a bringer show that they're putting something together and. It's always it's usually. It's okay it's good. It's seasoning you get on stage. Do Little set at any stage of the game, so he's a good to get onstage and weird crowds, but the problem with a lot of those shows is, you'll go on after like two or three people that are death There is no comedy left in life, and you'll be convinced. Nothing is funny. It's impossible to be funny. Yeah, do you know what I'm saying like? You see someone really really really bad. Like there's nothing to comedy comedy doesn't work because there's so many I guess. Approach to this like I. think There's one that's like. You don't WanNa follow someone. That's too strong like if I go on stage after Chapelle kind of fucked beano, he's both strong and super famous. Yes, a double hammer like people believe in. The store. But also there's the other side of it. It's you want to ride a wave. Yes, someone! That's doing well, you WanNa go in there and ride that wave, but then the opposite of it is. If somebody is bad, you can go on. You can kill it, and then the crowd believes in you, but if somebody is to terrible than it's dead, you have to spend your first five minutes. Just doing crowd were one of the signs of a terrible headliner is when they bring. Really bad openers just look really good. Yes, they don't want anybody stealing their thunder, so they bring like just complete scrubs that fucks me up them. You know me too I for me my. More about energy I want somebody's energy that matches my lovell, but it's funny. Or somebody that's kind of lower energy, but really smart and good, because if you have somebody that go super big that that's kind of hard for me to do an hour of that same energy versus guy before he does music. Oh, Shit what they started doing songs? They have songs for Shit. Never cared about an opening song. Dj when you go on the road. They were sawing. Come up them like whatever just play some top forty hip hop doesn't matter right. But then one of my openers. has a very specific trick. Daddy Song I got shot out to my boy Derek keener. Hilarious Guy Right He is very energetic. Trick Daddy Song Bit kills, and it's kind of dirty, and it's cool and Shit I got to step my game up. My opener is going up with a killer song and I walk up the stage with nothing. You know it just doesn't seem right. In the early two thousands in the late nineties early two thousands, a lot of guys funny wraps, and they would close with a rap. Like a rap parody. Larry's wraps things rhyme. They're loud. There's a Lotta gesturing and like thank you good night. And then you'd have to go up so I talked to my mom today. It's I. Remember. I used to do a bunch of urban clubs and. J. Spot remember Jason a funny name. Urban herb well I guess club should I say Black Club. Club. been maybe more offensive I don't know, but they call themselves urban Clinton isn't that weird? That is weird. Why urban it's a code word for black right? It's a code because it also means a city like all clubs are in cities when the fuckers Y-. You ever done a club in the woods. Right well aren't rural. It's like the word urban inner city for some reason. Right isn't that kind of the same thing. There's urban clubs in L.. A. That are just downtown Oh right isn't that one. What does that one club? Garrett Morris's club back in the day. Now there's a club downtown. That's a black club supposed to be real good. I don't remember, but every term urban. It's very weird. I remember so when I J spot I I. Don't know if it's still there. The J. Spot. It's a opened by J. Anthony Brown I was pretty very green. And on top of Yoshito, but as popping club, right and remember Dj. Come up to me. My set was like fifteen minutes. He was like you. GonNa Music Cues. I was like no just play whatever. Sure! I was like I. Don't have any music. He was like you. You don't want me to play anything in your set. I was like no I would just do that. And then I realized I watch all the comics. Everybody had like five music skits and the crowd it and they were killing it, and then I was just trying to do my observational humor and just a shit. because. Everybody's doing. You're not like you're at a complete disadvantage. There's a famous story about Mitch Hedberg. Mitch Hedberg was on the road in Ohio, and he was doing this club and for whatever reason the manager of the club decided to book. This guy who is like super high energy, and he had music I think he did like acrobatics on stage and Shit. Crazy stuff and yeah got everybody riled up, and then Mitch would go on there, hey. Everything was and he was bombing, and they wanted to switch Mitch with him and pay them less money, and it was like this big fucking deal. It's like no man. You fucked up. It's not like Mitch isn't Great you run a comedy club. Will you know who Mitch Hedberg is? You know he's Great. Why are you having a guy who does backflips to fucking Bass beats before him you? You can't do that. You ever do the comedy magic. Club Chore One of My Favorite Clubs, ten comedians on there. Sometimes you've got to follow magician or juggler. Yes, you know. I stopped doing that. There I, said listen. We had a bunch of issues there one issue. They would not let me bring up Joe. Ideas, oh. Why because he's not cleaned to dirty, but I'm dirty, too, but I'm. Like whatever for whatever reason I can get away with it for him, so I love the guy to death. Mike is the best, but. He wouldn't let joey go up. Because I love me just not. My crowd is just this your people to humans. They come to see me. Trust me. It is a different crowd and do kind of like it because if you just run your set at the Improv or the factory, whatever right? And then you take on the road, sometimes, it doesn't translate, but the comedy magic crowd is like almost like a mid west white crowd do. Urban, yes, what is supposed to be a code word for a white crowd suburb like suburban Crown They're like gated beach community crowd. Yeah. The one percenter crowd older to like Jay Leno fans. Yes, yes, Jay. Leno used to work tonight. Show set every Sunday night. There that was his thing. He used to go there. And how all's monologue shit and you'd work it out at the comedy magical Sunday night. Yeah, they're definitely I. Mean it really helped me because Richard? A Mike Amy lot of stage time coming up and They're great folks. They've. They've really nice and the club is ran, so they actually care about the comics like Usually you know you do the Improv and there's no knock to the Improv, but you gotta sign a w nine and give you five bucks in cash. That's just the way it is at the Improv. Right and then you go to Magic Club it's I think fifty dollars a set which is very nice for like A. Year for like a quick set, but then if you do it on Valentine's Day, they don't tell you. Hey, we're GONNA pay you whatever they just come down. Do Valentine's Day because we like you, but they sell these Valentine's Day packages, and then at the end of the day I think. I opened up a it was like a thousand dollars. They just gave all of us thousand dollar checks. It was like really really nice for a comic. That really needs it to food. There is really good real filet mignon comedy comedy club. Yeah, like a real restaurant that you'd go to. You'd go there as a restaurant. Yeah, yeah, that was. A great spot. But it is. I don't know why I. I tell my stories like my Asian stories or whatever you can tell like people come up the hey. Man I was funny, but like you know like when they talking himself. They're like yeah that that Asian. Oriental boy, Kinda of like you know you know there's some kind of that going on like I am so foreign to them. Say founded refreshing it. I can't believe that oriental boy spoke. English. GotTa get that vibe. Funny that Oriental became like taboo like the term oriental. It's it's weird. One and people that say oriental, the never mean harm. Just old. They always. They're old like it's my buddies. Fathers in high school. They're like Reverend so you and your oriental parents. Like they're trying to be so. It's like when people call black. People African Americans because they careful. Kind of weird right. Yeah, I love it. Yeah, it's just A. What he will Jamaicans are like someone who comes from Jamaica and lives in I. Guess technically you'd be an. African. America because Africans went to Jamaica I right and then to America. As odd yeah, it's all weird man. It's the but just to like for Asian folks like also. People get upset if you can't make the distinction. Yes! Have a lot of beef amongst each. Has a great bit about that. There's a hierarchy for sure. What's the top of the food chain what? Put Him in a spot here, but I think look. This is I think generally it's you have your main like Korean Chinese. Japanese and then they sometimes look down at the Southeast Asians so whatever Filipino Thai whatever Vietnamese probably but then if you call a Chinese person. To get pissed, but if you call Japanese I I don't know the exact thing, but it could get ugly. It could and I mean it's not just country to country. It could be like my parents from Shanghai. which is a very metropolitan like Manhattan of China so? They have a elitist syndrome to them. And they look down at people from the South China, or whatever and then I grew up in Hong Kong, which was a British colony, right? And it's a very different government where low more I guess progressive, or whatever just different city state so Hong, Kong people has a elitist syndrome towards mainland Chinese people. My Dad came from Shanghai to Hong. Kong, so he spoke Cantonese which is to local Hong Kong dialect with a mandarin like mainland guy accent, and they will always make fun of him as like the the mainland guy. Yeah, how does how does it like when you're seeing what's going on with Hong Kong right now where they're losing their autonomy to China is that freak? You out crazing? Yeah. It's very disheartening but I think my dad saw that coming. You know we moved here when I was thirteen. The year two thousand. that was three years after the British gave Hong Kong back to China after one hundred year treaty. I guess they're like Nice colonizers. They're like got colonize you, but just just one hundred years, and here you can have it back seems like its going downhill. The riots in the streets excuse me the protests because they're extremely polite protest. It's like the way they part. The street for an ambulance is amazing. It's tough and I. think that's one of the main reasons aside from education, and all that just more opportunities in America. That was probably WANNA main reasons. Why am I? Family wanted to move. Out of Hong Kong to America. 'cause my dad grew up. Fifties sixties Communist Revolution motherfuckers were kick down your door and take everything. Both of my grandparents went to jail from both sides because they're intellectuals, I believe my my father's father, my grandfather. Was a like a chemistry teacher, and he was considered, intellectually went to jail bond, so they put them the judge just because he was an intellectual. I believe I. Don't know the exact story, but then I know uncles that were talking shit. That also wanted to jail. A lot of people want to jail when they went to jail because they were complaining. I think it's a mixture of things you just fucking, though you in jail, and they kick down your door and take your shit look. Now now that I can never do a movie in China anymore. I'm sure I'm banned. Yeah, but who knows, but it's it's I. Get look I. don't ever try to get. Political might stand up or whatever but I get mad when I see hipsters in their house, having chairman mouse posters. Wearing chairman mouse, t shirts and shit. Chair amount killed a lot of people man. That's like on the other side of the spectrum. You have like a fucking hit poster in your house, but somehow that's cool right right right now like it wasn't because all I know I don't know history that will, but I know the stories that my parents told me doing a communist revolution how they got fucked over this something about mouth. It's like it's intriguing people that just look at it on the surface right like same thing with Che Guevara like he looks cool right? Cool look like revolutionary out. Oh, yeah, murderer! Yeah, murderer, genocidal murderer Tiananmen Square. Yeah right now. that was after my I think those look still yeah, communist dictatorship, and it's a we. It's in a weird place now right because it's capitalist, but it's capitalist, really run by this communist government like the communist government and the businesses are completely intertwined. I. It's interesting because they can make policy still less red tape because gigamon policies faster because the. The government whatever they say just goes. Yeah, but then I guess you hope that it's decent person you know in commercial That's the fear that people have here in the United States of competing with China is that China has these advantages because their businesses are so they're. Corporations are so intertwined with the government that we might do the same thing here. i. mean it's just. It's a weird sort of slippery slope as As laws and All your different rights get eroded. Get closer and closer to the government being in control of things like. These new laws that they've passed recently where the government can just. Look into your Internet searching with no warrant whatsoever. This is something that I. Don't know if you know about this part of the Patriot. Act that This was one of the things that was. People were furious at Senator Sanders Bernie Sanders didn't he wasn't there? He didn't show up for the vote. And if he had shown up and voted the other way, it wouldn't have passed. Why show up? He won't comment. Oh, he won't. He's. He's been reached out for to comment on it. He won't comment on it, but it's very disheartening and a lot of people who are progressive furious at them, and they feel very very betrayed by this because now. No one even knows you didn't know right. Most people know while the government canal. Look at all your dirty little searches I. don't care about that though like, but but. It's a slippery slope. Is that the fear? We here's a fear. The government is just people you know I don't want any I don't I don't think like I should be able to go looking at Jamie search like just for whatever reason. I know Jamie's and home. If I have some code can just look what it was Jamie looking at. What is it? What are you searching for? That's that's creepy, right? It's creepy like privacy is privacy is important. You should be able to reveal what you WANNA reveal and if the government which is just a bunch of people appear into your life, but you can't peer into their life. Yes, sets up abuse. It's the same it's. It's power. It's the same thing you see with cops right all this. Should you see with cops for sure? Racism is involved, but you know what else is involved power. That old man get thrown to the ground. The one that trump said it's fake faking. It bashed his head. Yeah, bleeding, fucking head, and trump's like very good actor. You, that's what trump said. He said seemed to have fallen to easily, but yeah fucking dead. He's an old man. God the fact that he said that this might might be in. Like what all of these conspiracy theories out there as an actor, I must say if any of these people are conspiracy guys there. They should fucking Daniel Day, Lewis, like they're great actors like you know like. Dumb Youtube videos of There's a funny of Youtube video of Somebody's grow front leading his two K.. NBA Account and he just destroyed. You could tell it took every thing for him not to hinder whatever he he was just destroyed, he was crying and some of my buddies like no man, fake dude I was like that guy. That guy is a fucking. Emmy Award. Oscar winning actor that Shit fake. Because that is not easy to do, know people think everything is fake, so many things are fixed, so many people have sent me things. You think this is fake I'm like Oh Jesus Christ. Yeah something's fake. Old, man, falling the way he did in bouncing his head off the fucking concrete in the middle of a huge protest. Yeah, that was real dude. That's real. That's what happens when you push an old man. That's to say. The fact that this is the president of the United, states say that okay, Bro, you would fall that way to. He's a Meisner trained actor, and he has a blood pack in the back of his head. Like how pro wrestler? How? You fell onto. That was pleased. Themselves with razors for years, so wound bleeds. EASY FUCK! You can hear the guy's head bounce off the ground experience a thunk. A hollow coconut like thunk when someone's head bounces off concrete. Yeah, it's fucking terrible, but the fact that the president united. States didn't just think that, but he thought it'd be a good idea to tweet that. Like he's fallen apart. All this protests shit. He's falling apart and also the fact that they denied that they use tear gas to clear out that square so that he can go to the church I gay man. There's video. There's video of tear-gas. Oh, you WANNA call it pepper gas, okay. That pepper gas they're using. You're not allowed to use that war. Yeah, that L. Really Yeah. You're not allowed to use that shit in war. You can't use tear gas and it violates the Geneva Convention a bio bio. Google that make sure I'm right about that, but I'm pretty sure I'm right. I'm pretty sure the argument that they're making is. You can't use tear gas, and you should be able to use it and protests and these cops are shooting rubber bullets and. People lose their fucking is here it is the military's banned from using tear gas on the battlefield, but police can use it on crowds at home. Here's why and this is on CNN. Think about that. The military is fucking banned from using this, but you're using it on civilians that just want to protest the tortured death of a guy who was being detained by a cop who had a fourteen year history of being a piece of shit. And dozens of calm I mean. He had more than a dozen complaints. Of abusive behavior, and they're gonNA use tear gas, and these people and just shoot rubber bullets randomly folks. I don't know what it takes. What is the lowest common denominator like he has to murder? Someone in front of you and people will still be like trauma. Yeah, yeah, whatever because he's he's. He's on the way out. I think it's It's slowly, but surely stuff like this. He can't help himself and under pressure when when people are angry him because of all this and I think one of the it's Kinda crazy, but one of the big things that started off where really lost his composure was all that shit that he said about Lysol. Disinfectant and put it in the body cleansing. When he started doing that, and then the next day they were asked him about it I was being sarcastic to see how you reporters would call on like no, you weren't you were rambling. You're like I. I've done that before up. Caught rambling, but I would say the fucking. We're talking about I. Don't know how you utilize all on a person. Why am I saying this? He's pitching. He's pitching. In the writer's room and he's like yeah, try this idea. What about you pair this character with that character, but you don't do that as the president and public about health issues see. See some Americans are gargling with bleach or pudding in on food to fight covid nineteen his that real. Really I read their did like a survey of a couple thousand people and somewhere in the range like four percent of people admitted to. Gargling. Door washing stuff the. Darwinism? Is If. You're over eighteen. Go, do it? Those say that Joe. If you're younger, and you're young, and you don't know any better, just not uneducated, but at a certain age like you should know not to fucking Gargle with bleach right. Tied Pot challenge all over again. It's tied pod towns, but it'll kill you. It's interesting, even like I. Stay off twitter. Of Tala. Thank you just it's. It's tough. I think I'm going to delete. My twitter. Account is so toxic these days I'm. A tweet, threat or a text thread rather with a couple of COMEDIANS, and they'll send me the most egregious ridiculous things that are going on twitter where people arguing about all kinds of crazy shit, and I'm like man. This is toxic like you're. You're reading of these. These a lot of these people have like. Depression mental health issues, and they're lashing out at people and they and they they have these like. Witch hunts, and they go after folks for jokes from fourteen years ago and attack them and put up screen shots, and they think they're somehow or another like doing something positive, and did you do a tourist twitter? Squirrel of like old tweets, the leading that that I mean I. See everyday to actors getting fired, and none of my stuff was like terrible, but it was just like bad jokes. Well, the problem is with us. In particular. We say the most ridiculous shit to each other all the time and then twitter was like. Like a lot of it was like trying jokes out, and a lot of it was like you had a hot take on something that was ridiculous and you knew was offensive. You only saying it for fun. Yeah, and then people take those things out of context. They pretend that it's like your real feelings and thoughts like these are jokes. People say ridiculous shit that they don't really mean because they want to get you to laugh. That's all it is, and if you take those out of context, it can look pretty bad if You're like pretty pure comedian. You know. I have to Kinda I, act and stuff, and that the whistle totally different world the world suck because you can't really say anything so even when I do, Stanton like what the fuck what am I supposed to like Nike and only I've learned. My Lane is only telling my stories. You can't argue with that right I'm just telling you stories about my father or like me grown. Hong Kong exactly what are you GonNa say I'm a fucking asshole. Because I'm telling you because I grew up a certain way, so that's the only thing that I've found the lane that people can't for now. For now, but as things get more and more ridiculous eventually one day they'll be able to get mad at you for that like they just once everything's been cleared out and people have been purified. They just moved the goal posts. They find some new thing that's offensive to say or do. There's things that people are getting fired for today that three months ago, you could say. People would agree with you. It's just weird. then. Stay it to your friends. Don't tweet about it I. Guess the lesson well. The thing is a lot of people tweeted and you know fucking two thousand eight. They tweeted it, and then someone will go back and find it twelve years later, and you get in trouble and you get fired. People getting fired for old tweets like I'm really glad I don't have a job job like where someone hires me fires me because a million things in the podcast, drunk or high or talking shit with comedians where you just trying to make to laugh and say stupid shit, and then if you take. Take that out you don't see the whole podcast and get the vibe of how we talk. Right in the conversation. You make a snippet out of it. You can make someone look like a real shit, but it's it's disingenuous, disingenuous deceptive. They know what they're doing. They know that they're trying to paint a very distorted perception of who these people are taking their tweets, and taking him out of context and putting them up there and and trying to get them canceled. They have rocks. It's just like a looter in a Lotta, ways like they have rocks, and there's a window and they wanNA throw a rock and a window you know. How the military hires. Hang on system. To see how vulnerable there. I think there should be a new job out there for comedians celebrities to hire these. Twitter people. To See, dig up any dirt and. Five grand and find anything right just to prevent some tweet storm yeah. That's a good idea actually. Actually a good idea for actors like they should do that before I know they do that now. When they hire someone for any sort of prominent whether it's going to be on the today show, or you're going to host some show, or you're going to be a Sitcom Act. They'll check. You fucking tweets down they WANNA make sure. High especially. If you're comic, right, they look at us like we're criminals. They look at us. Like what do you do what you been up here? We'll even do when no one's looking, would you? What are you been writing on your own? You fucking Weirdo? Yeah, trying to make people laugh ridiculous shit. That's why the virtual shows of the worst imagined trying a joke on zoom. Recording? You get canceled. OP! Zoom Virtuoso. It could happen. It can happen. Yeah, yeah, well, you. You know what's interesting though I think. I was talking about buddies about this. If if I think I'm nice guy. If somehow there is an old tweet somebody found and some bullshit and they're trying to cancel me. Do you think you or like? Friends of mine was SPEECO man. He's actually guy. I would one hundred percent speak up for you hundred percent right so so I think the people that actually got tweets dug up about them. There's two ways sometimes you get people speaking. I was like no, no, he's actually a good, but most of the time. It's like yeah. He was an asshole. Yeah, he actually didn't hire no black people because Blah Blah so I think it's the combination of both that tweet exposes a little bit of that person an and. and. Everybody jumps on and say no. You know what he's actually a Dick, it could be or it could be. The person who's getting attacked is does not have a high profile friend and they're you know they're kind of like just starting out. And maybe they got a job somewhere and none of their friends have any clout, so they can't really speak up for them if they did. They'd get cancelled, so they're scared. Scared the mob because it really is a mob man when a Internet mob comes after you. Know it's. Just not a good way to communicate you know there's a an interesting guy who had a tweet about this. Want to pull this up. There's a gentleman named. Whereas tweet here. There it is okay. Alex Lavigne Ovett's am sure I'm saying this right? Lavigne? No vits Allen Obscure Sorry Alan Lovitz trying to read his last name I can't even. Glossed over his first name, but he had a really interesting. Point that what we're eating when people get sick, you're eating highly processed food, right? You're not eating healthy natural food when you're consuming tweets and you're getting a lot of your information from twitter and social media. You're getting highly processed information and he was saying it's just as bad you as processed food, and then it's unnatural, and it doesn't come into natural form. And I think that's a very excellent point. The way put his. His twitter handle is Allen A.. L. A. N.. L. E. V. I. N. O. V.. I T. Z. I'm. GonNa. have him on the PODCAST. He's author and a professor. He's just a the point was excellent like I've said I had a similar point that I said to many people like consuming gossip and bullshit, and you're watching stupid. Television shows reality shows in your. Your mental diet is a very poor, but I think the way he formed his actually even better that it's really highly processed because the form. Where you're getting tweets, right, you're getting. Two hundred eighty characters that form of data and information does no social cues. There's no contacts no nuance and you're getting this very weird message, and you can decide good or bad good message, bad message. Bad Person. Good person gets hard. It's an anger needle. There's no there's no real way to. It's a bad way to exchange. Information with other human beings was the anonymity of it. Say That shit to your face. going to get beat up or just there's a common courtesy when you talk and face to face. I wouldn't say certain things to you. But when you're not animus, and then you're angry, that's It's not. Convenient can demonize someone attacked them, and you don't care if you get fired. Because they had a weird Halloween picture, they dressed up like an Indian in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty eight. You know you know what I mean like. There's a lot of that shit going around We should obsolete twitter's. I don't know why twitter's anymore well. It's good for promoting shows when we used to have shows right. Yeah, I never. My twitter never caught on 'cause. My Shit is sold Manila. because. I don't ever say controversial Shit and that's how you get followers smart. How controversial should helps I used to re tweet? A lot of Cool Shit that people sat me I had to stop listening reading the things that people are sending me. The one thing I ever really recently tweeted about was. One mention this, but the whole Shane Gillis thing with SNL. I was sitting in my trailer. I was just angry as an Asian person reading this and then I just said. This guy should. Not Be here Blah. Blah you know like almost? I became the mobs, but I was angry. I never thought about it, and I got so much flack. You know even seeing some things. I that I thought was right for my experience what I thought and then ever since then I was just like. Forget it I'm Gonna I'm only going to re tweet. Other people's Shit I have no opinions. Shane Gillis thing was very weird. Because like the, they're talking Shit, right? They're trying to be offensive to be funny. And no one was listening right when they were doing it, and there's like a thousand people downloaded podcast when they just thought they were just being offensive and saying ridiculous shit because you can, and because you make each other laugh, I don't think. I don't think he's racist I. Don't think he's a bad guy. I think he's just talking, Shit. It's the casualness. Yes, I think. Think, that was what got to me. It's like damn. Yeah, they're just white people in the rooms. Talking about us like that sucks. You know and I think they probably wouldn't talk like that. No one was around. It's weird. It's like you're talking like that because you know it's taboo to talk like that. It's part of the fun of doing it. It's not it's I mean you know. Oh, you're racist. Apologised I'm not I'm not apologizing for it, but. I am saying that that's what a lot of those Kinda guys do like a shock aspect to certain. Comedy a try to make each other laugh by saying Shit, you're not supposed to say and He. He had some fucking great sketches. There was a great sketch that he put up. That norm McDonald re tweeted because norm was upset that he got fired for it all and it was about people taking things the wrong way and misunderstanding and running with the worst possible scenario, and it just compounded. It was a really great sketch, but I shouldn't have brought that up and now it's going to tweet at me. Your fucking asshole comet try to get another comic fired, but I get it. Look I, get it man, especially being a minority in America I. Get it being an Asian like I. Say this in my stand up. It's like people come on. Thanks for represent Asian. I Love I love I love representations, but it wasn't a choice when you wake up. You wake up. Asian you can only representations. There's some kind of responsibility so. I was talking to Steve. Aoki's about Bruce Lee. MC giant Bruce Lee Fan, we were talking brutally stories, and he was saying that like when he was. A kid is like Bruce. Lee was finally like Asians. Had this representatives bad ass, representative just didn't exist before in popular culture like that's how unique Bruce Lee is. If you really stop and think about it like there was literally no one any even remotely like. Like him in pop culture before him, and then burst onto the scene, and then there was like Tana fake ones there was. Bruce lied. Remember, do you know what's Bruce Lie what Bruce Lee died? They had this guy named Bruce live dress like Bruce Lee and do very similar movies to Bruce Lee and Bruce Lee. Fans like myself. We all right. I'll take it. Was He was Asian though. I mean Bruce Lee was huge i. mean you can tell his impact forty years later. He is still one of the most Asian famous Asian sex symbols, yeah, and representation. It's extremely. Important in that sense because I have had girls. Tell me that just anecdotally can hate me for the story, but I mean it's just a fun thing, but this girl told me she was like A white girl she was like. When I watched the crow, which is Brandon Lee's movie, his son he was when I watched a crow. I felt like that was my sexual awakening when I was fifteen years old. And guess what I sex that night. Like. That's it matters. Bro, like I swear when crazy which Asians came up and everybody was watching it. People want to want to start fucking Asian dudes. Yeah because it makes sense it sadly. Statistically you know. I think it did some research on like plenty of fish or some Asian. Dudes and black women are least likely to get match on dating APPs SURPRI-, much bigger systematic conversation. 'cause we were. You know emasculated Blah Blah. But. I think what representative if had like ten more Bruce Lee's you know or ten more crazy rich Asians that really helps just media, representations, you or me I'm. The fuck up and I I I'm doing fine, you know. I need some other brothers to. Some white girl to be watching my stand up and be like you know I'm GonNa go fuck an Asian guy. That's important man. That's my. Dream in this business is to help other Asian, brothers skit laid. I think you can do it. I hope so I. Have Faith in you do that Orange Oh. You should do that to whatever you should be. The only guy that has a dual career like successful comedian. Successful porn star is that there's something about right if you'd be decided to become a porn star attained taints you for everything else. Comedy though yeah I think so really I. Don't think they. Start slinging deck. Hilarious kind of funny, but do you think that it would taint his comedy career doll houses stick in the house. Dick Game, pre fucking strong if it's strong Dick. Game I think at home using so. Maybe maybe somebody's got to be brave enough to do it. Do you remember when Snoop Dogg was hosting pornos? He was young was hosting them. What does that even mean like? He would like in the room like Oh shit people fucking like he. was doing things. His dealing things with porn. I'm I'm sure I'm right about this, but who wants Dan Doggystyle Yeah Yeah Dogs, so we had like porn that he was like look snoop. Dogg is beyond reproach. He's so cool. He's getting away with everything. Yeah, everything in anything. No matter what it is, but that's a idea to start with I. don't even light. The do shit like fucking. You know I don't I don't want any noise from the man. I! Like this one guy, I think his name is a black porn star like Wesley Pipes Maybe not too much about. But he be talking some shit and his. SHUT UP, dog! Let me let me just concentrate. Dude trying to be very careful here, but just showing you guys. Oh, yeah! We can't really see this right now, but the sun up. It's available to find. And so so the girls were like doing all their stuff and he's like he's not doing porn, but he's like producing it right. He's not in the same room, right. He's like I. Don't think so, that's. Probably a good advisors let's keep you in the other room. Yeah, this is back. When like we had to authorize button on cable boxes, which doesn't really exist anymore. Remember that know how you pay per views had a press a button go to the channel and then like. If you wanted it, you hit, authorize Mike for three nine nine. You get to watch whatever was on? I don't really remember this like yeah, there's like A. Cable Boxes I came out. You press it on the box itself on the on the remote control. Button so there's a DJ or easy for kids to Bhai paper. It's a whole Party, and then it becomes porn looks like it. I mean I'm no detective. The Gutter Pants on. Area Jeez. Louise! After parties after the show, yeah! But that this oh there's no. All dancing and everybody's having a good time. Okay so. I like that. You know it's too casual, too fucking us to casual right. It's out in a party. Everyone's out in the open in the middle of like seemed like a pool, yeah. Party Fuck Party type of yeah Yeah, maybe I'll consider point we'll see, but it's weird. Right because everybody wants to fuck, but nobody wants you to fuck on film. Contained you like. If you found out that Scarlett Johansson was having sex, you'd like. Of course. She's having sex. He's a beautiful girl. She probably likes men and chess sex, but if you said Carl Scarlett, Johansson wants to have sex on film. You can watcher. Yeah. But I mean look like Sasha Grey porn star who became kind of an actress and we'll soderbergh. How many did she do I the girlfriend experience? I did with things. She's an odd case, right? She's very smart. She's a decent actress, but she will never make it to that next level because she was a porn star now. Has Anybody done the reverse? Where the actor and then became a porn star, and went back to acting, because we establish yourself as an actor, I don't think they've ever gone back. It's one of those Hail Mary. Last ditch effort things I think Dustin diamond after from scratch. Yeah, I think he's about porn right? Did He? I'm sure he was after. He hasn't acted any stab somebody. Somebody, yeah, he did a lot of shade did stand up? Stab somebody fuck people do lot. Have Rich Life I like how up. Grouped into that rock bottom of. The group into Porn Stars and strippers. I think disdain of after did porn porn stand up stabbing? People think it was stand up stabbing people porn. But I might be wrong. On, just one step away from. About Do you know Vincent Gallo the actor? Yeah, great actor, but ruined his career by getting a real blow job in a movie that he produced. Well, that's that's. I think yes. I think money. Yeah Oh. Yeah, that was recent well. No, no, it's like more than a decade ago. Okay, no, no, no, yeah I WANNA. Say Two thousand early two thousands I. WanNa, say two thousand were maybe something like that that sound I don't know what the story is, but that sounds kind of shady and me to the producer and the star and you're getting. You know a blowjob. blowjob yeah, for sure yeah, you could definitely see the two thousand three Yeah Brown. Bunny so is with I. Don't know how to say her name chloe's How do you say your name is Savannah is i? Don't know she's. She's bounced back. but I don't necessarily believe that he has, and he's a really interesting. But what does it buffalo sixty four? Is that what the name of that movie is? Really Weird interesting move, he did some interesting shit. What does that his buffalo movie? Buffalo Sixty six really interesting movie. He's a great actor but he decided I think he was like you know he's out there, right? He's a real artist, and probably also a pervert and like listen. Up My leg for real and close like leads do and. I'm an artist, too, and so she really sucked his. Dick and it was. It was pretty hot, but people got very mad. They got very mad because they went to see the film. Critics fucking furious because they went to see it, and instead of it being simulated, it was actual sex It's weird like you could simulate violence right like John Wick Movies I. Fucking loved John Wick ranks great. Brains are splattered. Stabbed, the eyeball everybody's fine with it. Is You know it's not real? Could you have simulated sex? You know for sure it's a rubber Dick and plastic pussy fine like show penetration fine. It's fake penetration folks, no need to worry. Nobody felt really good while they were doing this. This is just rubber on plastic. We had a robot. The robot was pushing and it's a fake. and. It's all CGI. Everybody. Be Cool with that. You know what's interesting now talking about like real sex scenes inside of a movie those movies NYMPHOMANIAC. What's that Dude's name? van something like he's a European guy on both of. Those real sex scenes and real double penetration those movies, but it was. It was like. I guess like a good considered a really good envelope pushing type of movie. So maybe have you European? You can get away with it. Yeah, they have different standards. I was in Germany. I was flipping channels, one time and just rob porn was on regular TV uh-huh. Okay just raw porn. Just regular porn people are fucking kind of cool I. Guess for them like you WanNa. Watch people fuck? I. Don't get I. Don't get the appeal of it. 'cause there's porn hub now. I think what people are trying to do what I'm saying about violence like. Why are we so okay with overt like spectacular violence? But we're not okay with like if you knew like CGI so good now it's so good. You know you can have monsters that aren't really there. They're all created by a computer. Yeah, why can't you? Could you have CGI sex with people? Be Okay with that. Are we so freaked out by penetration? that. We don't even WANNA watch. Fake penetration and nobody wants to get a bone next today. Family in the Sun May. Maybe it's a shame thing like they. They feel more so distorted. We we don't care if someone gets their brains beaten in like. One of the scenes on television that made me abandoned Walking dead was when that was his name Megan. Name, he beat Glenda death. The Baseball Bat beat him over. The head is fucking is hanging out and he's. This is murder porn like what is this? Why are you making me watch this? This is not fun I. WanNa Watch someone. Get literally splatter like he's beating him over. The head is brain is black like a watermelon dropped off the top of a building. It was terrible. Yeah, that's okay, but you couldn't. If you had a scene in that movie where? A man went down on a woman who's eaten are pushing. You could see him eating our posey. People like this is outrageous. This is disgusting. Get it off the TV. She's enjoying it of feet up in the Air Monin. He's Air Blah Blah Blah. Blah. She's happy. People would be like this is a terrible movie European of. I can't believe you did this I. Think It's shame you got to. Everybody watches porn and jerks off, but not you got really forty or fifty people that don't even touch it. That's tough. Out there drinking water and running. Yeah I. DON'T Trust those people I used to my my my old roommate. We used to watch game of thrones together and great show. But. There's certain season that's slower than the other seasons and I didn't like it because I was like. Oh, I wish the storyline will go faster or the. Character would get develop faster and my buddy tyrrell. Who just like man? I'm going to stop watching. The show is. It hasn't been at any fucking in the last four episodes. And I didn't understand why he doesn't just go watch, porn, hub, or something like. Why does he watch game of thrones? Only foot fucking. Yeah, some people are unique yeah. Different take on things. But this Brown bunny man tanked Vincent Gals career. I mean you don't hear about him anymore. He was a big star like he was in a lot of really interesting movies that were well respected, and it was a big deal and this one movie seventeen years ago fucking. What's he doing now? He he might as well just double down and do porn no I think. He went back to Jill and movies, and I think he just. Does you know kind of Obscure Art House movies? Probably that is the case. That people don't really know about that much. You just don't hear his name and he's. It's a shame because he's a really fucking great actor. He just had this idea and his logic. It's it's you know it's. Like, get it like. She's going to. Actually blow me for real instead of like a scene where a woman like. If there was a scene they're making out in. The girl goes down. You just see your head. He's like Oh. We're fine with that. We're fine with that. Yeah, we don't want to actually see a Dick and a woman's mouth. Though even though we know that's what it's supposed to be, but also maybe it's because he produced it a road like that's me writing a sex scene for myself. That's gross. Yeah, that's me too for sure unless your girlfriend was the actress and you guys talked about it and she's cool with it and she wanted to do it. Yeah I don't know what kind of relationship he had with Khloe Shelvin gingy. But. Well it's but that's the real. Did like especially today in the to air? You can fucking never get away with that unless it was the girls idea. You'd have to get her on video saying it's my idea to talk your deck. I WANNA do like you don't. Get lawyers involved and if the sign NDA's higher signed consent forms I. Sadly I don't think I've ever had a sex scene in in in anything I don't think that's sad, you should. I just feel like what am I am? I not like not a sex. It's. A little bit I mean time to write a movie Bro. Yeah Yeah! I've been I've been I still. I still can't can't write my own sexy and somebody got to for me. Wasn't that a part of that? Ridiculously bad movie called the room. Guy. Sex Scene on me so cross? So Gross. But the James sprinkle movie version was that it was quite funny, and it's obviously kind of making fun of this guy has some you know some redeeming qualities. You just a dreamer. But it's making fun of the Guy, but he doesn't care. He just wants to like he was next to James Frankel on stage, Golden Globes and stuff he just wants that fame. Yeah, he just wants attention even if he's the he even if he's the nail, you need to be the hammer you know. What the most insulting thing I've gotten his recent, I don't even know I talk about it, but anyway I should because it's just funny. I met the final at this point career. People sending me scripts. If I want to do it just very flattering. I'm like. Oh, great, so there's an email. My agent semi ill. You're going to be really angry. This overly happy about I was like Oh. Fuck not a good way to start an email. Agent, and they're like they want you to play a lead in this bio-pic I was like Oh shit. What's up? You know like I'm ready. And then they're like yeah, but the bio pic of William Hung. I was like brother. Virginia shooter not none. The American idol singer bangs Ma I met that dude. Look nothing wrong with the guy. Those definitely some wrong with them well. Yeah Yeah. Yes yes, yes, but he's not malicious. Aspect or something I don't know what it is, but. I. Thought it was that the one dude who was shooter I. Yeah. Too I read all one hundred fifty pages of that script. I'm never been so angry reading. Like, I wanted to fucking vomit. And why are you angry? What you understand. I think William Hong set us back like ten years. Look nothing wrong with that brother. It's not his fault, right? Maybe there's a very nuanced way to write this movie of why American idol producers picked him out of the crowd and featured him. Just make fun of him and why the rest of America laughed at this guy. That might be an interesting story. Wasn't that the whole thing about American idol? It's like you had real talent, but then you also delusional people and the people were was part of those I love watching that, but I think it just cut so deep as an Asian guy. It's the opposite William. Hung is the exact opposite of Bruce. And and but he's. There's something wrong with him. I mean as a human being that. There's something to be. I get the guy signed a release and get that. That's part of the fun with the show, but there is a difference between people that are mentally challenged and someone is just not very talented, but people were laughing at exactly. That's what I'm saying is mentally challenged. Something wrong with them when I say there's nothing wrong with him, I don't mean he's not. AUTISTIC mental whatever it may be I'm saying there's nothing wrong with his intentions right? He's a dreamer. He WanNa make it right right right so there's sure a very nuance way to write about William. That could work, but we just shouldn't make that movie. HAVE WE RAN OUTTA ASIAN? People out there that I can do bio-pics about. fucking. William Hong Script Land My desk well isn't that that's a part of the problem with reality TV in general right. It's like what they're trying to do is there's some reality TV that's based on actual events taking place, but a lot of it is like they're taking. You have to sign these releases a lot of these shows that allow them to edit your words in a very distorted way, but you can. You'RE NOT GONNA. Have A conversation. You could have an answer to one question and they'll put that answer on another question. That's totally unrelated riots you look. Look like a real piece of shit right and there are one hundred percent allowed to do that and they do that for the story line. Do that for the narrative. Don't care about your reputation. They don't care about what happens when you go back home. How you fucking say that Jimmy like, didn't you don't have access to the raw tapes. You can't release you know no one's GonNa. Believe you, but that's Dave victimized people on purpose just so that they can make a good what they call a good show. Yeah, but they're doing that with him. It's different because. He's got a problem. It's not like he's a guy. It's not like if I decided I was going to be a singer. I went on American America's got talent terrible, and I'm seeing and everybody just they hit the Buzzer to get the fuck out Outta here. Yeah, I'm I'm a normal person like if you'd think I suck like I probably suck. If I have a problem a mental problem, there's something wrong with me. Yeah, and I do that and you know there's something wrong with me and you still put me on television. That's we're getting weird. We're getting like a you. You're profiting off taking A. Yes. You're profiting off someone who's clearly mentally handicapped in some way shape or form. If there's a spectrum of mental disability, he's on that spectrum It's not you. It's not Jamie. It's not me. It's like Oh. This is a regular guy. Yeah, you know we're all different but regular. You can talk to them that guys off. You know he's off. Yeah, but they like perfect. Run perfect wind him up because. They know people will have. And why are people laughing? You know I look, it's it's tough being. I guess one of few Asian. In America Right very fortunate to be in a position. We all kind of know each other. It's a small circle very proud of all of us, but. Early on in my career I got some flack from silicon. Valley my character, you know accent character, which I mean for me. It's a little different because I. Came to this country while starting I couldn't really speak English I was like okay I'm just GonNa. Play an version myself I understand I'M GONNA try to put some humanity his character, but then some. Articles or whatever it's like this is the offensive stereotype. Blah Blah and really looked into. That was get it. Eventually. The character became a more three dimensional character because the jokes along on him, just being foreign, it's on him being diabolical coder person. But it's tough being an Asian actor now, not only do i. have to decide on playing apart or not by looking at is a good script I gotta look at the Cultural Ramifications is discreet representation. Because there, so few of US each of us that does something means so much more right That was the beef with APU character, because there wasn't a lot of Indian, and then you care, courage is run whatever now that's what's great about. Crazy rich. Asians and I had a lot of fun on that movie, because for one of the first times. I wasn't the only Asian. Dude on set and I can just play a character. My character is an asshole in that movie, but I can just lean into that and be a character actor and play it, and it's a powerful funny movies. Rate production came out excellent. Everybody enjoyed it. It and and there's a whole spectrum of Asians it's not just one Asian representing all Asians, you handsome Asians you asshole. Asians to a romantic lead, and also the bitchy ex girlfriend, whatever so we can just actually be actors for the first time, and not be actor. Slash Asian representative so when something like William Hung comes to the table. Yeah, just can't do man. I mean come on. You know it's interesting that that it's like when someone gets offended at racial stereotypes, society it through this filter of whether or not, it's a valid and I'll give you an example the sopranos. The Italian American anti-defamation, League or whatever the fuck! They were pissed at the Sopranos. They're pissed it. It was It was reinforcing negative stereotypes about Italians and. I'm Italian and everyone I know that's Italian was like. What. The fuck. Are you talking about real people? I? Know guys like that use offensive. That's offensive reality. Yeah, is the mob real? Those fat guys real. Do they eat pasta like that? Yes, that's real. Yeah like that's a because. The Talibans are really discriminated against so it's it doesn't hold any water. What also you are Italian? There's a ton of Italian actors comedians out there, so sopranos is not the only place where you see ten. It's not the only. Waters it down and it's fine. Yeah, because. You can play whatever Mentally Handicapped Guy, not so smart guy or complete asshole, because there's a million other white people, but as soon as you play a mentally handicapped cards over. That's a very dangerous, but that was Robert Downey Junior. Oh, Tropic Thunder! Retarded. Never go full retail, but then he get an Oscar nomination for being black face. I hope he did. He talked about it on the podcast and he was. It was like. Thank God. We talked about it on the podcast months ago. we didn't talk about it today. Because today, I wouldn't even bring it up to today. People getting the guy who was the fucking editor of bone apetite. Yes, they they got. He got fired for a photograph that he took dressing up like I. Guess He's Puerto Rican. Face or something Brown face at all just gold chains and a hat, said the bronx or something yeah. It's. I think they said they call it racially insensitive well, but that was kind of what I was talking about early though Adam RAPP report I. Am I'm big Fan of bone apetite. Until maybe then I got okay. What's going on here? Because okay? The news came out with whom that Pitcher, not that pitcher and then his staff. There's this girl that was one of the only minorities on camera. She started saying. Yes, I, agree not just that pitcher but I'm the only maybe non white person on camera. That's not getting paid fairly. They just want to push me off camera for diversity, but I get paid fractions of whatever the other page, and then even other white people spoke. spoke up me like yeah. We have some systematic stuff here. which should look into at the the organization? So so it's a combination so I if I have a Puerto Rican picture of me, I don't think people would start jumping on me and be like. Yeah, he is kind of a Dick, but here's here's example, if someone had a picture of them, pretending to be talion, nobody would give a fuck if he had a tank top on with Spaghetti stains on it and his hair greased back. No one would give a fuck. The problem may be that. There's not enough representation in a positive way of Puerto Ricans in the media because like you have. WHO's like? There's a lot of famous Puerto Ricans. Yeah like who who are Gimme. Examples of I don't want to. Get the wrong nationality with famous actors, but I'm very aware there's a lot of famous Puerto Ricans, maybe not enough maybe like because. It's. Maybe it's the timing of immigration like my grandparents. When they came here, Mike I, talked. To my grandfather a lot about it, they were horribly abused. Racism against Italians when they were initially immigrated in the early nineteen hundreds, but by the time I was a kid, it was gone. I mean I, experienced a little bit of it in Boston, and with Irish kids would make fun of me for being Italian or shit on me for being Italian. By the tunnel is a grown man like that like anti Italian racism is nonexistent basically. White, kind of it's like Colbert in Italy right now it's you can't even can't even find. Like these new CDC, the we're talking about Cova like the the viral load in Italy right now so small. It's barely registered Oh. Really Yeah, they were rough. They had a role. Yeah, they're not healthy. Again these are my people. They fucking e pasta drink wine. They all smoke cigarettes live on top of each other. No one's washing their hands. Yeah, there's no exercise try. To having this conversation with Sebastian, yesterday were joking around about this. He's like try finding a fucking good jamming and Italian hotel. It's totally true. Every time I'd go, they'd be like some cable machine with some fucked up police system. That's broken I just want to push ups. Sit ups and just run up the rocks or something like there's no gems. The Gym is a joke. No one over there is working out what thing is I. Don't think I. WanNa say that I could say that I can't just do a bit about Italians. Not Having gyms and being fat Sebastian, Minnesota. I'm saying you can do that, but you could to. We wouldn't give a fuck. No one. Would you and Sebastian Wooden, but somebody mice people are assholes. Whoever would would it'd be like those Italian American anti-defamation people that got mad at the sopranos like. There's no anti it'd be the Anti Italian. Sentiment in this country is so small. You can't even measure it. It's it doesn't count. You can't complain. You can't complain where you see what Asian people have to go through. Black people have to go through Mexican. People have to go through Muslim. People have to go. You can't complain of your. Italian yeah you can. It's ridiculous. Yeah, you know. Lonzo Bolton set this jokingly to me after my second, it's my said has a lot of Asian stuff, my stories. You know some complaints and he's like you know. I like how you talking about race. Because you got minor inconveniences. Black people get shot, you know. I was like Oh Shit I. Never Talk, but he's a friend. He was talking point. But that's kind of what you're saying. It's a point. It's a real good point, but is appoint. Weird, that we have hierarchies of racial discrimination in this country. Hierarchies, and then there's there's like positive racial stereotypes. Right black is big DICKS. Asian guys get math Go those okay like those stereotypes. Okay, apparently not I don't I. Don't think it is. I! It's a wonder when as a culture will get I really honestly believe this and I'm one of those. Forever optimist I really believed that this moment the reason why these people in the streets the reason why there's all. Take away the looting, just a peaceful protests. The reason why all this is happening is because. There's a lot of part of our culture that haven't caught up to the Zeitgeist to the way people feel about things way. People are disgusted by racism. The Way people are disgusted by discrimination, and then people are united and getting together to try to show that like it's a cultural shift that's represented by this mass movement of human beings. I think it's I. Think every if you follow. Follow like Steven, pinker work where he talks about violence, and if you go back and look at crime one hundred years ago, versus now you see this very steady decrease in crime and violence and people getting better. We're getting better at everything, and I feel like. This is a cultural moment where people are going to get better at racism. Yeah, I hope so not better doing it better. It'd be sneakier at it. Really about better. Just we're all humans man the only differences. Is that we? We came from different climates to pay attention to that and focus on that above all else. It's just it's so it's. It's annoying. Yeah, it's dumb. It's just it's an artifact of the past. Yeah. I wanted to get to the point where you can make fun of everybody and no one gives a fuck. It's just fun, and also you want to like. Like when I talked to my black friends I'm not asking him Yeoman told me about black lives matter. Educate me, or whatever like we're passed that like when I'm talking I'm talking about girls. You know I can write life, but I think when you uncomfortable. That's when you're like. Hey, Joe, so you Italian That's my conversation with. That's weird like Music Komotini, I walk in the store and I in the asked me as Asian Shit like. Did you learn to use chopsticks? Yeah, let me. We're not friends like we're just. You're just I'm your Asian consultant and I think. It's good to get past that point where sure we can just talk about anything that's beyond that, but there's so much work to be done I think. It's what's happening is very. It's a great turning. Point banged up. There's great things happening. And then there's also the feeding frenzy. The the the online mob feeding frenzies is happening to this like this whole broad range of things that are happening all at once. And is great things and bad things, but that's just part of being human like we have to see the bad things and just go. This is fucking gross like let's get away from this. This is better than you see you know like when when people see things that give them hope and you see all those light heart, signs or people love things, and like things and. And say this is amazing, and then the share it and reposted and re tweeted. It's like that's it's. It's spreads through people. We should all be looking for more things that make us feel good whether it's our own actions or things that we can find online like more things like that resonate with how we want the world to be. Yes, yeah, yeah, absolutely and Yeah. I don't have anything to end its and. That makes you feel good. That's an. And Dick for the ladies and the GAY folks folks. But Pussy for the ladies that are into ladies, so the conclusion of that entire conversation. Good I should do porn. That's that's what saying that you taking a subtle way. Okay, the past hour and a half hour reconsidering. Yeah I I well, you don't you don't know my my my game. You don't know my game. I've heard jokes about you. Dick game so I'm assuming you're pretty good I gotta represent Bro. GotTa. Do it gotTa do a Dick? Game Show. You know to represent tired of this shit. Yeah, do you feel like Comedy has less opportunities for Asian guys. Stand up itself. Yeah, stand up, I think I. Look at stand up as such a Utopia I've such a love for it because. It's too meritocracy. It is a meritocracy and the Weirdo. You are the less fitting in your society. The better you probably GonNa be you have an angle and when I first started able to Do Some say brea? Improv whatever shows that. I would never have gone to do one year in because they were. Asian shows so I was able to fit something. You know so so that it could be could be I always say this I think it's. It could be easier if you have an angle whereas it's a race, thing or something some specialty of yours to get into acting to get into comedy, but when you get to a certain level, it becomes less work I think. Interesting. Yeah gives you an angle to break in, but once you broken in then, it might not be I've had conversations with female friends about standup. Female friends that are comics about. Stand up and. The ones that are really good. All seem to think it's America crecy and the ones that are not very good seem to think there's some discrimination interesting. Yeah, the one like you've talked to Allie. Wong Alley long and I had a conversation about it, and and she goes. Do you think it's Chrissy I? Go I. DO I do too I. Think it's 'cause like look. She's fucking murdering killing killing absolutely smash. She didn't like some insane number of sold out shows in San Francisco. She's a beast She's denying that right. Also, a woman, and but this other women that will tell you like it's hard for women to get on the LINEUPS. It's hard for women to get promoted like. okay, may I think it's harder for women to go onstage? It's harder for first of all. If a woman goes onstage and stand up almost automatically her politically her political opinions, nobody wants to hear. Men Don't want to hear your political. Men Don't WanNa hear you telling them things. They don't already know. Men Don't want you to like if you talk about sex. Like man, you gotta be like a broken slutty kind of a girl to talk about sex on state, and then they'll go with it, but if you just like a regular girl with no problems and you WANNA talk about sex. It's like your get scrutinized I. Think so. You have to be better. You have to think like for a woman to like Riley. A Whitney Cummings or allies or someone like rise through the ranks. You have to be undeniable gift able to. To go into any crowd and slay you know, and but some women the along the that process of like figuring out that there's sort of a narrow window that you could fit your jokes through in the beginning. At least they stumble into that and they they bounce off the walls. They don't they don't get like a guy can like right away. Talk about politics. Talk about sex. Talk about anything for men. It just has to be funny. It's basically wide open. But men discriminate a lot of men do I. Don't generalize. Discriminate when they see a woman on stage, they go. Oh, great, a woman, colleague, some woman! I don't know she going to suck which you're gonNA talk about. Politics Show to focus up. He's like some men don't want to hear a woman talk. Yeah. That's tough man, so I thought about that Women have to be better and and and I guess. Do you think it's harmful, or is it helpful to start in that narrow lane? Whereas it's grow talking about thirty six stuff or an Asian comic talking about being Asian, and then you can expand to other jokes why I think we all start with training wheels. Talk about jerk off. I five minutes. After you, yeah, well. How old were you when you start? Stand up twenty one. You me, too. Yeah. I didn't know anything more on like sex was the only thing that I was even interested in. So that's all I talked about on stage right now and. Just surviving, yeah, whatever you can get a laugh, you know one hundred percent. Do it yeah. I think it's harder for women. Though the beginning parts are harder tornado. It's hard to do that Tartu. Just can't just talk about sex. I think they have to be a little more undeniable they've. They're a little more scrutinized again. A lot of it is like men don't necessarily a lot of men. Again I'm generalizing. Don't necessarily WanNa hear a woman onstage. Thing about standup to like like you're a smooth guy when you're onstage I, love your delivery, your presentation very easy to watch very casual, but because of that because you're so comfortable. It you the luge in that anyone can do it. Right, because you're just talking right I can talk to go up there and do what he's doing I. Know How to talk. He's talking I can talk. I'm going to do stand up. Yeah, and so it gives it gives the six so dopey men already think they can do what you do, uh-huh, and when a woman does it. Dopamine men that are sexist automatically think they can do better than that woman and they don't WanNa hear. yeah, yeah, it's it's an easy. It's like acting like acting seems easy, just being self talking. That put into like for us comics, and then the the training for actors is not like we're driving an airplane. Flying an airplane, but when you get to like Daniel, day-lewis style of acting like you can't do that. Stop pretending you could do that. You get to like my left foot or some of the crazy shit that he did. You know I would say something about acting. There are naturals like Jennifer. Lawrence never take an acting class. She's probably crazy as fuck who knows. Say Yeah just really good at at at something whatever that skill sending at pretending lying something right, and you just really good a really good knowing the human condition somehow but comedians even of your fucking natural. You Suck in the first five years. You Suck Suck mean you might get a seen anyone that just like immediately. Good some guys that have gone through alcoholics anonymous. Or really good. Right off the bat because. They're stage, training. Yeah really yeah. Yeah, there's a dude I knew back in Boston who's. Well quite a few guys actually in Boston started out a but this guy date fitzgerald remember he was a grown man when I was a boy, I was like twenty one and he was. You know late thirties, and that's when he was starting. Stand up, but he was way advanced because he just had this ability because he would do the. He was alcoholic for years, so he would. He is great fucking stories of all the Times. He did coke and drank so much that you didn't remember what he was doing and. You know got arrested and he would tell these crazy drug-fuelled stories on stage. At an AA meeting and people be dying laughing and he had this way of doing it, and then I believe it was I forget. Who Will the comic was? It was in the audience. It was also in a grabbed him and say hey, man. You ever saw about doing. Stand up, you fucking funny. You could do stand up because he was killing at AA meetings so. Then when he would go to because you got to think it's staged time, yeah, name's Dave and here this crazy raspy voice, hot life Boston accent. Add life and. So funny, fucking do, and he would go on stage at a comedy club the way he onstage in AA meeting and murder, so he was, he was, he was killing real way before me killing real early on because he had months of standup. Maybe years I'm not sure how long you done the meetings before he actually got on stage at a club, but he he had an advantage. Stage time. It's like he's been doing open mics for five months. Also Super Supportive Open MIC nights. Dave I'm an alcoholic. Hi Dave Yeah. Everybody's there. You get a little more comfortable. Get loose, and you're around. A bunch of other fellow junkies fucked up lives. Yeah, you know what's interesting like speaking of like being supportive. Comics were very like we make fun of each other. It's like you walk off the stage like I like. If you bomb any walk stays I. fucking one man show. In a way now it's a compliment. If you're can be one man show killing, but we just break each other's boss right, but I remember the first time. It took Improv classes. I was so uncomfortable because everybody is so supportive that. Zap Soom. What did they provide seven? Let's do these exercises and shit, and then I was like Oh. My God my Buddy Terrell saw me. I would not go mike not here to end of it, you know, but there's something really nice about that. When you get a certain level and acting or when you get over yourself as the STANDUP, you want to be around supportive people once you get to a certain level, but then when people bus balls like if like, someone gets off stage, and has a terrible set and their friend buster balls usually laugh to like eight shit. You plates Shit. Drink and his laughter. It's like there's there's there's fun, too. It's like they're picking up your spirits by making fun of you. And then you get to laugh at that like we all know it's a process. You trust the process and one of the things stamps out right now. Yeah, on Amazon. Is it right now? right right right right right? Come out when they come out. It came out two weeks ago. Okay, beautiful so that. When did you film this? November. Oh! God in pretty early yeah yeah, it's funny. Start my set by saying. Asians we had a couple of good years. Not so true anymore you know after the whole Cova. Right before covert became gigantic news. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it was pretty tough. I mean before. Special came out. What in May, yeah, early May right. And I was kind of kicking myself. I was like Shit. If they would have been later, my whole material would have changed like Blah Blah, but it's good to kind of have that out there and have people see a glimpse of how good life was maybe six months ago, Positive it was because now it would have been. A, little more somber tone. I think. It's hard now I mean. It's hard to figure out what to say. It's GonNa. It's GonNa. Take a while for everything to like. Settle in the place where people can accept even what's happened I. Mean How many people you're dealing with the audience that have lost their job. Only people are. You're dealing with the you know. There's no job for that doesn't exist anymore. They're businesses gone. Yeah, and they just WanNa laugh and like. Maybe there's some wounds that you don't want scratch. Scratch up. We're going to have to navigate. Those weird waters. Yeah, I. Don't know like when we go back to. We open with talking about covert and Quarantine. Because that's what's on everybody's mind that we talk about some totally different I think. I'm going to not talk about covert I might talk about the the the riots fascinate me because it's what I've always said like when people have said to me like. Why do you have guns like why? Why why are you in the self defense while know this civilization is a thin veneer like we've only been civilized for the last ten thousand years, or so before that we were fucking barbarians for hundreds of thousands of years we have that same DNA of those barbarians. It's in our blood, and we keep it together with religion and societal norms and and community and love and friendship, but when things go sideways, you get to see what. What people are really capable of and that's what we saw during the looting and the riots when people have an excuse and a reason, particularly when people are backed into a corner, because they couldn't work for three months, and then there's a justification. The system is fucked up this guy that killed that the cop that killed. That guy is a piece of shit. There's there's rights, and then you see cops that are fucking shooting. Tear gas at. FAC. You just want to smash and loot. You see that thin layer of what a what a human being really is that the civilization veneer gets removed. Go look at the real the real thing under there. An animal, humans or animals were weird, talking animal. And we want to survive. We have ideas of fairness and rules, and and we have a mob mentality. There's a weird thing that will happen. It's probably built into us from. Thousands of years of surviving hand to hand combat and war when Shit goes crazy around you lock into chaos mode. You've ever been around a mob like that's going crazy and naughty. You can feel it man, you feel it in your skin. You feel it in the Air I'm fascinated by that and I'm probably GonNa Talk. Talk about that and you're the most prepared guy if some. Shit you can fight you. Got You got weapons? But I'm be the first to get the fuck out of here to I'm the last to stay and fight I'm like get the fuck Outta here. You can't win this. Yes, and not a winnable situation. This is not a home invasion. This is this. Is the world going sideways like you've gotTa get the fuck out? How does it feel to be a martial arts expert somebody? Somebody that can fight like. Do you feel more confident going outside to you? You know because I'm always looking around like okay. Shack doesn't fuck me up. He can can totally like you know whatever people can always shoot. You can always shoot stab you. They're gonNA. Hit you over the head. When not looking, there's always danger and being a person especially when you're round bad people. But if I'm in a situation when the some guys a Dick. And I think like I've seen people get beat up man. That couldn't defend themselves, and it's horrible to watch. It's sad i. mean we've seen many videos online? If of people getting beat up by somebody. Yeah, because they don't know how to fight and you see some person really doesn't even know how to fight, and they're beating the fuck out of someone and hurt and I'm really bad. Yeah, that's not GonNa Happen to me. I liked that I like that if some asshole tries to do that to me I can. I can hurt them. I can detain them I can I could submit them. Yeah, but it doesn't ever get to. That point would have you got in fights lately. I'm not a fighter. I mean I know how to do it, but I'm a nice person, so just knowing having self confidence fills. End It helps, but law sketchy people out there man. We've all seen videos I watch the video yesterday. Some guy punching some girl in the face for like no reason and knocking her unconscious. I'm like what the fuck people are assholes. There's a bunch of people that are abused and they come from horrible backgrounds here abused by their parents and family, and they're a mess and they they walk amongst US free until they commit crimes and they get locked in jail, so somebody wants to fight me. What I do I just run? Get the fuck Outta there will. See it comment seeing coming real. That's a real important part of it like seeing coming right away, seeing sketchy people and knowing you got to have that spidey sense. The fuck out of there, but it's exciting to be around danger. Non Me It's exciting to be in weird areas and be around weird people. It's like when things are a little bit little sketchy. Little seedy people enjoy that is. It's like what are you? What would you rather have? Would you rather have everything? Be fucking boring and Vanilla and just write. Everything is Hermosa Beach, or you know every now, and then you want something to be just a little bit fucking dirty. It makes you feel alive. What do the shitty Mike's Random spots here and there? There's a greatness to it, yeah? Yeah especially standups. We really gravitate to that. Yeah, I think feels live. We like a little danger. Yeah, we also what you're doing when you're doing standards, you kind of exposing these truths that everybody kind of knows about, but doesn't talk about. Freeze them in a way like yes, yes, like there's there's thoughts that are there there, but you've got to unearth. And show to people and like yes, yeah, this is a danger to that. There's a riskiness to what we do. Fisher. Is a weird job man. And everybody has a different right. You get the Hedge Berg? He does it. Mitch does did it one. You do it a different way. Joey de, as does it a different way. Everybody's got a different way of doing it. But it's ultimately you're trying to find those points. Get find that those perspectives fi find us those comedy weapons to pop through on these people and break into their mind and sparked flying. What do you think separates good comic to the next level rate comic, so a lot of things I think it's really dependent upon the person, but I think a lot of it is focusing on comedy, and like really working on your Shit, and making sure you're. You're real objective. Vote what you're doing. Also lot of Reps, man. Yeah, putting in a lot of reps. reps are giant man. I think that's the no, no denying that and then also different things that you do. One of the things that I do. I I do standup I listened to that. Stand up, and then I write. Right onstage I listen to my sets a write off stage. Right on Mike I've come up with ideas. Free Ball. Take chances on stage, but then I sit down and right right I. sit down in front of a computer for hours. Wow, every now and then I'll sit down maybe for four hours. Come up with one line, but it's worth, but that would have never gotten. Yeah, some of those lines like the best lines in my act came from me just sitting in front of a computer. Yeah just writing. Just it's. It's a constantly I. Guess the the danger and the fear. Fearlessness of comics is also. The willingness to try new shit four pages new shit. Maybe only one line works 'cause I know many people that I came up with that much funny naturally, I think. But they they're stuck in that fifteen. You know they keep doing that fifteen because they feel good. That's their drug. That's that's the fifteen minutes to get to go away from their wife and have fun. Yeah, so they WANNA risk that and have a shitty night, right? They WANNA kill. He had that feeling of killing. Yeah, and that's what I was getting at earlier like one of. Of the things about like you just did a special one of the exciting things about comedy as we all become beginners. After we do a special, he do a special, and then you start from scratch beginning again so like I. Know you're a great comic. I know you're really funny, but if I see you and you're eating shit I'm GonNa Laugh at you because I know you're. New Sheets rough so. It'd be laughing. We'd be like ha fun. We laugh together at pain. I'm still insecure. Insecure in a way that okay sure I gotta go. Write some new. Shit now and the hit and the point now I come up with no shit. 'cause we can't go to comedy. Clubs owned I'm kinda stuck. Beginners all of us but I. I'm still afraid that. Even though I don't need another acting job from somebody watching me and stand him. I don't need to impress a manager in the audience on other this doing insecurity like I. Don't WanNa tank in case somebody I'd like is watching me for the first time. You. Know what I mean, but that's where alcohol comes in. Shot of Jack hit a joint and just fucking. Let the good times roll well. If you think about it, because imagine that time you just walk by and saw me in the lap for the first time and I just ate a Dick. You know. Everybody. That's true, but like he's eating addiction. Yeah, yeah, so I. I don't know if that ever goes what you mean, but the the the there's like the thought process of like well. You should work out your shit at the Ha. Or flappers a little bit off the beaten path a you don't want to do it at the Improv. You don't want to do at the store. I disagree. I disagree gifted you have to. You have to be taking chances you have to swing. I take a flopped at the store, a bunch of times or pull out a joke that I have like. In my head, but it's also preparations important to like you gotTa. I think even when have a new bit like I just sometimes I'll go up with a justice seed sometimes I like no I need like a plant that I could like. Dig a hole in shove that in their need a full plant. I mean yeah, but it's really dependent upon the subject matter like I. Remember when the Harvey Weinstein ship broke I had a bit that night. Like right away I'm like Oh. I know my angle. My angle is that if Harvey Weinstein did that to my daughter, I would did I found out that I was sexist because of Harvey Weinstein did that to my daughter. I'd fucking kill him, but if Harvey. Weinstein came to my son with a solid contract. I'd be like dude. Dude you're going to be Batman right right right right right? And I had this whole bit. That blossomed that night like that line. Dude, you're going to be Batman that came the first night onstage because it was like right when he getting arrested I was like wow and I was like. How would I feel if that was a woman? It was like this disgusting woman. Who Like Harvey Weinstein Address? That was trying to fuck my son. I'd be like to wait pro. Do. You think working in a coal mine fund. You GotTa do what you gotTa. Do get by this world. Come on Pussy. and. that. That bit became a bit like blossomed onstage. I just had a seed. I just had an idea. The best feeling is that's like you free styling. It's amazing because it was like hours after he was arrested was like hours after it went down. Yeah, and just it just just popped and it became a bit. That I wrote, and I worked on it and I you know I honed on stage, but that it was just that was just a seed, but then there's other bits that like. They took a of real thinking like Oh. This is like these are mine filled. Terrain! Yeah, going through here I gotTa make sure I make sure that I really. Dot All. My is and cross all my ts what I'm talking about this because this is a controversial subject I, want I don't want anybody. Misconstrue what I'm saying here right right right right? Yeah, that's also the tough part. The message that you sending because that's beyond just being funny Oh. Yes, you gotta be responsible at that point and really hard. Yeah, you want to like say if you're doing a joke and some in the joke. You Reference Gay People. You want. There's a gay couple in the audience. You want those folks to know. You loved them like I don't have any. Zero animosity to anybody. Like I love Gay People I. Love Straight I love everybody but I'm GonNa Make Fun of you, yeah! I'M GONNA. Make Fun of something that I see that something that gay people do but I want you to know. This gotta be a way that I want you to know before I do this. This is not homophobic. Yeah, yeah, give. I'm saying this I'm saying this. Just because it's funny, were all funny so I have to figure out a way to navigate those waters. Do you I. Guess what I try to do now. especially with the landscape of the stand up comedy specials I. See on one the the one that really pop and I like it were a lot of it like Hassan, montages or Hanoch gats bees not. Funny in that sense, Hannah Gadsby per se right like a lot of comics. Ted Talk Yeah but I think there's a point that I think that's cool. That actually gets a message across, so I always try to hurt. Thing is probably like maybe fifty percent tectonic, and then fifty percent comedy. If that I, try to do like eighty percent comedy, and then maybe twenty percent I'm just telling a story. That's a bit. You know like I have a story where I almost got deported a couple times. You know when I was being an idiot this not it's not that funny, but. There was some kind of a point to it right, but you're like a pure comic. You like one hundred percent. STAND UP! Do like that one man show stuff because I was I troubled. See like I am. I am I kind of being a sell out by doing that? No I don't think it's been a cell. Look people obviously like hand Gatsby like I had this conversation with comics about it like I thought it was weird when. You say that she's redefining comedy or uncommon being comedy like. NO YOU'RE! Not. This is what you're doing. You're doing your thing, you're. Like people are enjoying. It's resonating huge. Yeah, so her thing. People are enjoying. It doesn't invalidate. Or make or invalidate Donna Williams done how Raleigh or or a Harland Williams I was gonna say or who's like totally silly you know Harland Williams is just completely silly or Donald just wild and loud, and like that's great to or you know, could thing Joey Diaz? It's like it's not invalidating joey sign validating people that also do a different thing that people love as well It's just you're doing something where you're talking about your like Hannah gasp talking about her own pain, right? She's talking about her own issues. She's talking about her. Her own life and it resonates because it's honest, and it's real. It doesn't have to be funny. The people that enjoy it. Maybe they don't WanNa Jesse stand up right I wanna see something wants something interesting but if you go see Donna wrong, he's just going wild. He's having fun. Yeah, that's comedy. It's wild comedy. That's okay to all. Things are okay. L. Magical is okay. Everything's okay right like different genres of movie by people want to get weird. You know to get hateful. Angry like I, only like Blues Music is rock and roll it and that's really what it's like is. That is what it is like. I've said I've heard people say that about Harland. Williams is one reason why I brought up like he's so silly. And if you saw Harlan on paper, you'd be like what is that? Hey, there. Butternut Flap Jack Peachy Pie. You have men you would have done is set. Not Work I would each every time not quit comedy. But Harlan. There's something about his delivery, and that's what he really thinks. It's funny. It's like can't tell me it's not funny. I watch him kill always amazing amazing right so like that's his way, and then you know you've got John Mullany that's hit. He's got a different way. It's also very good, and then you've got anthony. Jessica just mean with great writing. Writing Right, but it's also very good. It's his way. There's a bunch of different ways to do this thing and for one person to decide like Oh Hannah Gadsby Israel. Comedy comedies dead. She just killed comedy like you don't know comedy, and you should just shut the fuck up right because you. What you're saying is nonsense. That's like saying rap. Music Killed Beethoven. Dumb is dumb Yeah, yeah, that's great. That's that's all fucking comedy or whatever it is. Yeah, it's comedy till it's not comedy. You know it's it's. It's comedy until you decide to tell a story. That's not funny, but it's also interesting. Yeah, even within standup itself. There's so many different genres is no way I've loved that one hundred percent. Yeah, one of things. I always loved about Hedberg. Is that like it's so absurd in? That's not my style of comedy, but it's so silly and absurd Stephen Right same thing. non-sequitur after non-sequitur, bazaar, weird used to work at a fire hydrant factory couldn't park anywhere near the place that kind of comedy. It's not not I would never write a joke like that, but with him with his bizarre look and his bizarre style at murders. You know I didn't know about. Stand up comedy when I was growing up. Never heard of it really because I grew up in Hong Kong wooden firsthand. You saw bet comic. When I was thirteen one who t I think, J Anthony Brown that year Bruce Bruce around then. It was so interesting to me because this wasn't even an art form that existed in my childhood in Hong. Kong I'm sure there were some stand up. You ever heard of it never heard of it. Never heard, and I came to America and I was trying to learn English just by watching TV. And then it seems like just completely different genres in this new form. It's like hurt music for the first time, and I was like Holy Shit. This rock and roll music and there's know hip hop so so interesting because I remember I really gravitated towards a comic view. That was so interesting. because. It wasn't just jokes or me trying to learn English. It was me also. Like learning about culture how each race saw each other Blah Blah even though there were stereotypes, you know that they're joking about, but it was cool. Whereas I watch comedy, central premium blend then really laugh. I don't know why like I always gravitate to its once urban comedy. You know and they're having more fun. Yeah exactly, but because I was watching the performance of it, it's it's like there's hip hop fans that light Asong because at a beat, and then there's hip hop fans that don't care about the beat and only listen to the lyrics. I was more like the guy you know and I just love that performance, and then only later on when I got into comedy I was like Oh. Wow, everyone! That's doing that premium. Blend stuff. Maybe maybe not my cup of tea, but it made me laugh like. As an adult because I understood how hard that was yeah. I found out about comedy from my parents took me Richard Pryor live at the sunset strip when I was fifteen in the movie theater watching Richard Pryor onstage. Going this is crazy. They couldn't believe how funny was a guide seen all these funny movies, but to watch this guy just talking on stage I was fascinated. He's one of those guys when you watch you like I can do that because he's just talking he just. Did you write this? But there's so much insane talent like Michael Jordan basketball. Look easy, but I mean I guess you sort of you know you. Can't talk. Yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah. There's there's so many different ways you can get introduced to comedy it's it's I love hearing like when people like when the seed planted and people's heads like. When did you know that you were going to try to do this? People ask me that question and here like gray stories like the Richard Pryor Story. Me and my brother. He's a sneaking movie theater. Watch Eddie. Murphy. Live after you had heart attack I promise I'll be a comedian like really. Amazing I don't have that. I was I. think it was a desperation that made me WanNa do comedy desperation I never thought that was. Even thing right because you don't go in the arts when you're Asian. That's not a real job. You know, it because your family would discourage it. Yeah, yeah, and and also nobody in my family did it in the arts like anybody that may money was finance. Whatever real jobs quote unquote, you know. So. I I was just. I was about to Graduate College would economics degree? And I hated. The internship I hadn't finance and Shit and I. Just saw my life flash in front of me I'm like Oh my God for the next forty years behind this desk. fucking mutual funds who cares? So I just tried a quarter life crisis right when I was about to graduate I was like I got to do something to meet new friends meet girls to whatever so then I ju Jitsu classes for like two months horrible I was. I was the smallest guy in the weakest guy in the class. Dot Me up with the girls, and they will twist me up like a pretzel. Very discouraging I quit after like two months if that And then I tried like different things like boxing classes gyms whatever you know. And then. I say the story I wrote this book and and and I said in the book like. Typing in local open mics in your Google search. It's one step away from typing in. What's the best way to kill myself? It is that's separation that you need that I needed. So and then I just Google local open mics went to. Paid five dollars. You had to pay five dollars for five minutes station on Baha so five other comics can not laugh at you. It was. Horrific but that still better than me sitting at home making no friends because I saw a camaraderie, I was good I can make some friends like here in the open mic, and there's a new world out. There is a out for me. So soon after I quit that finance, you know internship very promising internship, and just try to do. Stand up, you know. I did everything I worked at door. I at the Comedy Palace in San. Diego this Greek restaurant. I'll turn into comedy club at night I work. The door folded envelopes did everything if they let me sleep out, slept it answer the phones and everything just dove into it, not just for the love of Commun- arts, but for the love of this new life new fraternity that I found. That's awesome, so so a lot of it it was. An improvement on my life. That was that interested me in in. Stand up and threw standup. I got laid for the first time. It worked out for me. And I kind of had a crisis where. Okay I'm doing fine I've a lot of friends now I have a you know i. go on dates like it's fine like my life is fine and I started making money on Silicon Valley. You know so I stopped doing standup I was like I don't really need this you know, but but then after a while like I wasn't getting the press, so it was a really good feeling because it wasn't a crutch, it was an addiction needs to feed. And then eventually I did stand up finally I think for the love of it. I was like you know what I do. Miss this I'm GONNA. Go do it on my own terms, not just because I'm trying to make friends and trying to poor girls I'm doing it because I enjoy the process of it, so let's fucking do it. And that's the recent. I guess resurgent Energy. How much time did you take off? To? From standing out. On and off like a year to. A couple of seasons, Silicon Valley I would do standup maybe at Max out. Just go down the comedy Magic Club once every two months. Just so I can talk some friends or something, but this wasn't a new dust it off yet, but it was stuck in that same old material was feeling it. And the reason for the special really was i. kind of got pissed. I was because everybody that was coming up to me in the streets. Like Oh, Jin Yang so camale whatever and. There's some youtube clips you watch him do instead it's like Oh. Had No this motherfucking and do standup you know and I'm like man. I am a standup I started as a standup. I think a better standard I. I'm an actor. So let me prove to the world. I'm not just like a vine guy or act trying to do. I am an actor who used to be a stand up, and that is my fucking forte. That's awesome similar thing when I was on Newsradio I kinda stopped writing for a while like couple years as Just doing the same old material. Just phone it in. Yeah because when you're making money doing. It's hard. You gotta find a no motivation. Then had some people come to see me bomb one night at the comedy store. Then I woke up. I was like I gotta get back to work I'm I'm just doing the same old. Shit I knew the material stale. Yeah, it was flat an any connection to it. I was just saying it because like. Like I was using it like a tool like a screwdriver wasn't there was no like people understand. They've the feel what's going on in your head when you're talking about things, and if you're not totally tuned into what you're saying, they don't want to hear it. Yes, yes, it's! It's I think ups. Can All be great actors and we all have the. Abass for that because one of the magic tricks and stand up. Is You told that joke a thousand times? But you gotta make it sound like it's the first time. Yeah, and if you just mailing it any just telling it as if you're reading a script in your head, it's like watching bad acting on TV, if the guy filling it, you're not going to be filling it. Yeah, there's a I always describe it as mass hypnosis It's like there's a vibe that you're you're. You're you're you're you're hitting frequency and the audience if the words are well worked, if you you have a good economy of words, the things you're saying, resonate it all make sense of confidence you focus. All these things are correct. Your delivery is comfortable. Makes People feel good? They just let you think like. Go Jimmy think for me I. Want to hear what you have to say. And they don't, they're not judging just like letting you. Take them for a ride, and it's kind of like when someone's really killing when you watch someone onstage killing your eyes are open jaws. You just going along with it. You're going along with whatever they're saying. You know you know own Smith I want Smith killing I. think the way He's thinking like. I'm allowing him to lead my mind. You can't wait till you hear his next. Yeah Yeah, you're not like going out with us. This or he's on I'm bored with what he's saying. No, no, you leading, if someone's got a well-crafted act, but that's the thing is like creating that act like boy, you're. GonNa have some weird hiccups when you put it together when you got new shed, and it's clunky and it's. Awkward Yeah maybe go down a row that you don't WanNa go down. You're like I gotta get out of this bit. You don't know how and one bat new joke in an hour set like if you just have one bat new joke, twenty minutes in. The next ten minutes to prove your worth again. Is there like this guy? I don't know yes. Yeah, and you gotta be real careful. If you want to open up with a new joke, who they say never do that. I don't agree with that. I. Don't think there's any never do that. Right is any never do other than you know. I mean there's definitely a few never do that, but if you've got an idea and you know, it's fire. Yeah, you know. It's GonNa. Crack again. Let me just run this onstage go. I know I. got a bit. Do if this doesn't work, you have a nice segue into a real big. If in case, this tanks. I'M GONNA cut it in half and then go into my old, but when some shit just happened like three hours ago and you go on stage. There's a certain energy to that, too with the audience is like this guy has no idea of this is any good. Like you're just you're. Hot! Take on something that just happened a few hours ago. There's energy to that yes. Yes, yes, and some some things that you know. It's an old joke that you've done say for two years and and you're like man. This killed. What happened, yeah! And, then you try to force some energy into. It, not there. To you, it's fresh, and maybe there is an amazing actor, or you can put some acting skill into that to pretend, but it's still not there. You have to really be interested in what you're saying. Yeah, yeah can't fake that now. Comedy it's the the weird thing going on. That's not defined between us in the audience. It's very weird. Yeah, and sometimes even you think you're saying it with energy and with that same. watch yourself on table like no. I'm just going through the motions and reading lines head Yup. Same thing would acting. You don't WanNa. Do too many takes Oh. Yeah, you know when you really tell when you're high. If you go to the movies when you're high, go the scars. In Yeah see some sometimes you go to the movies and you're high and it just like seamless. He just gone this little journey. Believe every word every now and then someone will pop out like this motherfucker acting. Yes. I never forget I went to see the hulk with Eric Bana. Remember that guy. He was many hawks. There's this one clunky seen. Maybe they did it too many times or whatever but like. Acting, because I was barbecued. In the audience watching this and I was like this is so acting. Never forget in that moment I'm like this guys act is fake, so there's the space force. Show that I just did. How is the Great Netflix's right? NETFLIX's Steve Carell John Malkovich. Greg Daniels I mean that's a great fucking destroy. Scream come true. and. It's interesting 'cause sometimes. If you're kinda unprepared. You go do a scene and you don't have your lines memorized. Somehow you pull it off because it's fresh, it's as if you're saying the line, but sometimes you rehearse I'm just one scene in this one episode I don't think. I, don't think other people will know like people aren't actors like, but I watch it myself I remember the day when I was doing that scene, I was like oh I'm killing it. I'm riffing I'm like you know me and the girl tawny that I'm doing the scene whether it would just go back and forth feels good. It's like a little boxing match, but then when I watch thousand down seems lower rehearsed because I think rehearsed on my mind, I know she's going to say this. I'm GonNa say this, even though it folk good, if like a float, it lost a little bit of that Saying for the first time and and I was tough for me to watch that myself and I don't want to say which seeing it is because I don't think people could tell, but I could kind of kills me. That makes sense like you know. What also like you know what you're? GonNa say there's no surprise when someone is watching. The scene is all a surprise to it because. It's like watching a magic trick. Where's his hands? I don't even know what he did. Know you're talking and they don't. They don't have any idea where you're going. And they just follow along. You know everything you're going to say before you say it, so you watch. The weirdness she's going to say when you know everything. I mean a really great actor. He's supposed to know everything everything. And then you use your skills to pretend you've heard it the first time right, which is a up also really, and and and sometimes you forget that you just feels good, but it's not. It's practice. It looks like practice. Did your family give your time about wanting to do stand up? There's quite the story there. Feel good story. Let me preface with that so. My Dad was in finance, he hooked me up with their finance job and when I was like I don't know. I just don't want to do. What do you have another job? Ask no I'M GONNA. Give this stand up, thing. Try and this was like a year or two in. Obviously I was making any money. So, he was very disappointed. He was hoping it was just a phase. You know he doesn't even know what stand up was old Chinese guy. He just like a talk show like he just keeps calling a talk show still till today a talk show. Just never got it so I was finishing my last year school. In San, Diego, I got just random jobs I worked at a used car lot during the day I worked at that comedy palace, collecting tickets and trade for like stage time in even after that I'll go put another shift as a DJ at clubs. Just so I was like trying different things you know, and I didn't want to lock myself in the something, and then eventually the acting starting to do a little better you know My first job was two broke girls at two lines. So proud was so proud of myself. I was finally making some money I. Call My Dad. I was like Dad. You know wasn't you? you know watch CBS tonight I'm going to be on their and stuff I. Don't I don't have spe- CBS. Who who doesn't fucking CBS? It's you put up his ten four back TV. Get CBS, so he was just really not down right. And then eventually when I got on Silicon Valley. The old man understands what a contract is a series regular job on HBO. He's acting. He got it. No, he was finally happy. I was financially secure so instead of giving it up and say hey Jimmy. Good job I'm proud of you maybe I was wrong. Good for you. You know what he said he was over so easy. You can do it. I can probably do it. and. He started becoming an actor. House. Okay Dad. You know what? I was like that. If you think it's so easy, I was with a very small agency at the time. I'm like you know what I'm going to. You know signed you up with her. See if she needs an older Asian Guy 'cause he does not a lot of Asian guys out there competing, so she signed him and then I was good. Good good now you're GonNa go to auditions and understand. How fucking hard my life's all the rejections I face on the nerves I gotta deal with, but then the plane completely backfired because he went to those auditions and killed it. He booked like his first six out of ten jobs, which is unheard of ratio. Yeah you'd be lucky to book like five percentage jobs, but he was killing it. Like nonunion gigs. He even got on this show Talk about this a little bit my stand up. He even he even got on the show that shot in San Francisco. As a Chinese show without it was no big deal. Low Budget Chinese show became the biggest show in China became like the fuck, modern family of China and my aunt from Shanghai will call the house like Richard. You such a good actor. Your son must've taken after you. I was like what the fuck. But. Now I've accepted. That's who he is. I'm happy that me and my dad's in the same business in a way that's crazy and it's a fun story to tell people right, so I was jokingly saying that story to John Malkovich sports on Space Force. Everybody gets a kick out of this little story episode, nine and Space Force comes around. We're doing a table. Read and It's China versus America thing in this episode and you need. They needed a couple older Chinese. Scientists that are authentic Mandarin Chinese people. After the table. Regret Daniels to show runner. He's like. I, just I don't know it's always the same guys just whatever and John, Malkovich. Said what about Jimmy's Dad? have. You Thought About Jimmy's Dad? And I didn't have thick enough skin, the volunteer, my dad, and then that night I home I cut together and acting real four. My Dad and a Senate to Greg. All I said was like Greg. Maybe give the old man a chance. He's got a good look I. he fixed his older scientists in China. Just come in and audition, but I guess. Greg was so impressed with the tape. He just hired him. Episode nine of Space Force. My Dad is in it. He's great. He comes in no fear and is seen is toe to toe with John Malkovich. And? How long has he been acting? I'm in. Two years years never taken no classes pets so crazy. Wow I. Practice with him on on Skype for that scene. You know because I was like that. Don't make me look. Don't fuck this up. Make sure you remember your lines. And then he was. He was practicing me. He's I can use screen grammy records. I can see my own performance. You know and active off very self conscious. I I hate to watch myself so I. Recorded Him I sent him that tape, and then he he looked at it. He was just like wow. I'm really good. Look at me. I'm like listening to I'm not good at this. I was like sure go go for, but it's that blind sense of confidence, and also the fact that he never thought to be an actor, so there's no fear. Yeah. I was nervous as Hell my first day with John, Malkovich and Steve Carell. My Dad came in which is chillan. That's so funny, yeah! It's funny that it totally backfire. But now now it's fine. It's a fun, father and Son Story. That's a great story. It's so funny that he saw you. Doing I can do that. You know he could. He's a talented guy. He he wants to do stand up now. Really I was I, was he? He seventy something seventy, two three Wa, and he was like well Jimmy. Thing I can do some stand up. I was like sure just go sign up for an open Mike at Laugh. Factory I'll put your name in the hat. How about that? It was like on hundred hundred I'm not doing open mics. Can I do some theater or something? I was like that. No. I'm not doing for five people. I need to do it if I do it. I need five hundred people. That's not how it works, but who knows maybe when he does it in front of five hundred people. We fucking kills. What have you dagga fucking Netflix's? Year. What if you dad just starts murder and put together some whole routine? Imagine how crazy that would be! If Your Dad's a murderer just up on stage crushing punchline Bang Bang Bang I want to say. I will be happy for him, but there's probably a part of me, that's. God. But did not be. He's always been the funny one in the family though he's always a ball buster and everything kind of came naturally to him. Wow, there is. No vegan find that space foreseen. Episode Nine but completely fearless very natural. Has He written standup? Does he have any ideas of stuff he would talk about you know what I should have. Right in the set to see what the materials would be. I don't know I that. I got offended the acting stuff. 'cause I always felt like I, snuck into acting I wasn't trained at juilliard, or whatever right so That was kind of like a similar path. He snuck into acting. I. Snuck in acting wherever, but the stand up thing kind of offended me. fucking put in ten years. You can't just go. Do A guy named theater? What if he does? He I mean maybe he can open for me one day or my next special that be fun. If you haven't opened, it would be interesting because that's a rough spot. Anyway. Even for a common got to warm everybody up for a few minutes for the start Roland yet, but if I introduce them as like my dad, that would help people heard the story on the show. right, or am I. Stand Up, then people would love it, but you seen. You've seen like a viner or like a youtube or trying to stand up the five minutes. A crowd is crazy because they love this person and laughing, but then it's hard to keep that momentum going. To the goods. That's what they say about. Famous people doing standup in particular like you get a couple of minutes. They're happy to see you Oh Scott fucking terrible. That happened to me when I first transitioned from just unknown. Stand up to the guy from Silicon Valley doing in. Remember the first couple of minutes so hot I couldn't follow my own kind of. You know and it's interesting because my character look, Allie. He's like he has an accent. He's an emigrant. You know like we were talking about earlier so a lot of people for awhile coming up to me in the streets when it did not stand up, they didn't know active beyond that show. They were like Oh Shit Yang from shows. Yup, sure thanks for watching and they're just like Oh Shit I. Didn't know you speak English in real life, so imagine the stand up crossing that they have to get over it. At first they like Oh shit this speak English. So that takes two minutes. Of all, and then and they started, accept me as a as a stand. Do Address that right away I say this. Yes, my special. Sometimes And people have because it's true that that's what they think when they see me or when they saw him years ago. Yeah, yeah, no! That would be really hilarious if your dad became a killer comic. I should train them. Off Archea I should help them right bits with thought about doing like not a reality show, but like a little adventure show me and my dad and I take them to try to find an agent. Go to auditions, and like did bring him to the comedy store to get advice from you guys so so he can be a comic. Maybe I should. I should go ahead with that I. was Tony Hinchcliffe? Mom went onstage at kill Tony One nine. He wrote bits for and he taught her how to do it and. fucking murdered really murdered. His mom's Hilarious, just natural, no stage there. She's you know she's a woman that a long life and she's experienced a lot of shit, and and Tony wrote stuff for her, and everybody was happy to see, and she went up there and fucking kill. We think she did Jamie about four minutes five minutes. That's a lot for the first time to do. Fuck killed really I, mean she fucking killed I? Mean killed like I was laughing. I think Tom I. Rare was with me on the stage. I think he he was. I think it was dumb. He was laughing. We were all laughing hard like she was like Tony wrote the bits which helped a lot. Obviously, he's great. She was delivering them like a killer. I would not right for my dad I want them to eat shit a couple. You! You have to get somebody. Respect your craft man. Right because he doesn't respect acting. Yeah. You know not that it doesn't respect. He just thinks it's a little easy. He's a genius. So I. Don't know if it's a lack of respect for the arts, or is it a overconfident in his own ability? Visit Overconfident if he pulled it off. And, so much about acting, is it is confidence? In Yourself. It's the correct amount of confidence. It is correct. He's so relaxed I have a video. I gotta find on my phone and show you. So it's in the hallway between setups me and Malkovich's running lines and I'm I'm nervous Malkovich works hard like at his level. He still works hard. He's amazing. We're running lines in between takes the camera pans, pans and bunch of empty chairs, and the pants to my dad and actor fell asleep just a stat asleep so relax. Schilling is about to work with John Malkovich Larry. No nerves. Wow, yeah. Does he know John Malkovich's he does. He still didn't give a fuck no I think maybe comes with age. Yeah, when you're seventy something you Kinda, you've seen so much. He is such a fan boy like he loves taking selfies with people. It's very at first it started off which is. Like crazy. Rich Asians like Patriots Day this movie that they will Walberg In the Premier I'll take them to the premier, my parents, and just to kind of finally get their approval. You know and he gets it. He gives it up. He was very emotional after gray's rotations and all that. But his his goal is not to celebrate with Sun there. His goal is to get selfies. After party, you know the Chinese groman theaters premiers. You know to Chinese theater. There is right there. Mark Wahlberg and he just keep doing sell fees, and and like I was sitting in a table, and then mark has this table and his boys and security, and then my dad's leaned over to me and was like. Hey, you think you can get a picture with mark I was like I. Don't I. Don't I. Don't WanNa I. Don't WanNa. Ask Him because I. have fought so hard to not ask pictures with people I work with you I WANNA pick to remark I. WanNa Picture Malkovich, but at the same time I want to just be a colleague I. Don't want to be a fan of course, but then my dad forces me to do that. He's just school. Ask Him. Used to that, though he probably just exactly if I asked I think it's still Kinda, lame, but it's like hey, mark. My parents are big fans. Can they get yes? Cute, old Chinese people. Everybody kind of gets a kick out of him. He played my dad and Patriots Day. Really is a very small scene. It's A. That's an interesting. That's how he got his SAG card. That's hilarious. Talk about nepotism in Hollywood. That's how it works well, but I was actively trying to improve that movie because the movie was very serious. It's about the Boston Marathon bombing and I was playing a based on real life Chinese Person you know very detailed stuff like he speaks with a Chinese accent, but it's Chinese accent when he mixes his els and. I forget I, forget what it was but I studied it for a long time. It's not just a generic Chinese. Accent right and then his parents. Of course speaks this dialect or at least a very proper Mandarin. And the actor I hired a play. My Dad it just a skype seen very simple the. First Higher play at that spoke Mandarin and Cantonese accent. so I wanted to work the direct Pete Man, I. I I got to say something. With, the whole point of this movie's honoring these heroes and be authentic and this guy, you guys are not be able to tell I know, and the Chinese audience will know this guy's from Hong Kong from Guangdong something. He's not from Sichuan or mainland. China you know so, it's like yeah. Sure we'll find the guy. and I was like yeah. I'll sit in with you as a more than stuff if you. Sherman you know what really shooting in Boston might take a long time. I was like Pete once. You just hire my dad. And that was it. They hire my dad at the Larry Yeah. That's Hilarious, but it's. It's for the art. It's for the authenticity, Dude. I'm not so secretly hoping your dad kills. I was just thinking the best story I wanNA. Have you back on after? Your data has just murdered a few times on stage, and you're like what the fuck! He comes on this podcast and. You'll be huge huge star. I can handle that. 'cause right now. It's very much like I'm hooking up. I'm still the star you know he's just that. But what if I'm starting known as Richard Son like? Down be that we kinda rough. That's going to be hard. He's going to have to really do something special. Pull that off. We'll see we'll see. Maybe he had his own Hannah Gadsby asked special I. Mean and just only talk shit about me in the special. Funny of like you Antonio, whoever of great writers, great comedians start plotting against me. For his success. Right for him, you them. My strategies for how to how to kill. Oh my God! He loves it man. That's great though that's so cool. It's a good father and son bonding. What did your dad used to do for a living? What was his he was? Always like really successful salesman. He had his own medical device company. In. Yes, that's a thing where you have to have personality and you have to know how to read a room. They're like we're talking about alcoholics. Anonymous is like a good gateway into comedy. I think maybe salesman might be too. And then when it came to America, he became a financial adviser. So that's people to people gotta give presentations, so he was always a great public speaker, and I took after I never really had much stagefright. So that's that he's. He's a natural and you say bus balls, so he's always joking around. He's the funny one in the family. Team Home God. Yeah I. Think he's going to kill Richard. I, I hope he does a really do yeah well. You got gotta hope does maybe we'll do a two man show their netflix are the odds of him being better than you are very slim. SUSPI honest, but don't you just want to do well? Wouldn't it be great? I really do I think it's really I joke about the jealousy I. Really don't care. He's an old man. Let him live is bucket list. With John Malkovich. I'm just being good sun trying to help my dad, I'm now. Oh, man I can't wait to see how this plays out. When is he going to do? Stand up. Do you have a time on? WAS HE GONNA? Try It when when. Back Open again I think once I told them he can't just do theaters. He kind of what became disinterested. He doesn't want to do open mics, but you've got to or maybe doesn't got to. I mean it depends on how? Much of a perspective. He has if he has like real takes on things that he just go on stage with. You never know man but. Here's the thing if he goes on stage without the context of this is Jimmy Dad and he just an old man doing a set i. don't know just that's a long road, but if I bring him up and he's my dad I. Think people are just Kinda either give them a little more slack. Maybe but that might help you accept the fact that he kills what if he goes onstage without any recognition of you whatsoever? Just someone introduces them. He goes on stage and just fucking murders. Dhabi heartache that would be hard. Yeah, because if you bring them up and give them a little training wheels, and you push them. You give them a little boost, Eddie go! It's exactly what I was saying how you can't immediately be good in stand up. You need to put in five ten years, but if he's just good. Yeah I would question myself like I'll be like what fuck I must lease. Tell me when he's going to do it. Please okay we're GONNA. Tell me when he's going to do and I want to go. Dog Encourage Him I. Don't want people. Show it up. If, please do. Please, do it, but if I was an older guy though I'd be really worried about Kobe. Yeah so like it's GonNa be a while before he's probably willing to go to a comedy club or something, right? Yeah and yeah, yeah, speaking of that I mean I try to see him every week so i. I'm very careful. 'cause I don't WANNA kill him. You know but yeah. We'll see. Maybe he'll do those virtual zoo. Do that set up the wrong way. You know what I should. I should completely like oh my ego right from. China not do that, should I see how good he is without? You got to see how good he is i. let him do it. I don't want him. Just let them do it. Has he been to a live performance by you? Yes. How many shows live I didn't really want to A. Disinterested in stand, up. It's not. It's not his thing. He gets movies and TV doesn't get. Stand up and one time. I was doing bright. Garrett's Club in Vegas. MGM OPD. Chinese people understand, Vegas I'm GonNa Hook them up with a nice room I was I. think opening a middling years ago. I was like finally. See me an MGM because they know that's a nice place going to comedy club. I crushed it that night. A good set and you know afterwards you and the headliner in everyone's out there shaking hands meeting people. My parents walked out, right. My Mom's all smile. She's very just positive. General? And then my dad walked out and my my buddy. Jack was next to me. He was the middle was to open her. Yeah, my Buddy Jack. Cohen older comic. He went up to my dad. He was like Oh. My God. Hey, Richard! Aren't you so proud of you, son? He's so good right? And then my dad just looked at me in front of the entire audience of everyone else shaken and he's like no. Jim is not funny. Yeah. Wow. Yeah and I don't know if he was years later, he said. That was a joke, because because it's not. He said this, he said. It's not funny if I tell you. You're funny. But, it's funny if I tell you, it's not funny. There's a story there. But Yeah you're my dad, though I mean come on, you're not. You're not my money at an open mic. Yeah, and then he also said he was like well. I honestly didn't think it was funny because. I don't get the references. I don't get culturally. Would you're saying about whatever I didn't get it, so he's kind of just being honest also. so He's trying to be funny in his own way while being honest about his own take on it. I don't yeah, yeah. He's honest, but he's also still being the ball breaker right. He's a funny guy, but sometimes it's hard to be his son if he's. Using me in in the expense of you know comedy. Is it like? The style comedy like insult comedy Bob Ball. Breaking like would kinda yeah. That's what he does. Yes like a older Chinese don rickles. Yes. Yes, that's one Chinese people I think in general I say this my stand up and it's about doing affirm white audience or a non-chinese audience duck. What the fuck that really happen like? I do this bit about how Chinese people would tell you exactly what the fuck is wrong with your face like? Thanksgiving, you know my mom would tell my girl cousin like Oh Christina you got so fat. Why destroyed I was like you can't say that. And then my mom and my dad would be like if we're not telling her. Who would also be in like? A A comedian I mean not not being coming being going to say Oh being Chinese being fat or gaining weight is prosperous is good as auspicious or whatever. She's a girl. Talking say that you know. Kristen is not fat. She's beautiful, young woman, you know and and. Yeah it's it's hard to grow up with a high self esteem in Asian House. But, there is a weird honesty to it I. Don't know I don't buy it. They say it's honest. I think it's. Passed Down Trauma Day parents. And now they're doing it. I don't know. Well. There's something about work ethic in Asian. Households when I was a young one of my good friends with his kid His name was junk junk Zik Chang`an. He went on to be national champion, while while he was in a medical residency. Like yeah, I, I always used to compare myself to him. If I ever thought I had disciplined, I worked hard. I compare myself to that guy. I'm lazy. Fuck because this guy was. He worked so hard, but he was telling me that. This is just how it was like nothing ever did is good enough. He's Korean and he was like. My parents are so ruthless like everything had to be better. Nothing was ever good. It didn't matter if he had strays. You could do better. You can always do better. You never never good enough. It's interesting. I think that that is more like the very stereotypical Asian parents, the helicopter tiger parents, or whatever types repair right, I. Tiger, mom, I, think is real term mine is I guess a little nuanced? They would give it up for academic and they always call me smart. Smart and stuff, but they will make fun of me like I remember after orchestra practice in high. School Ones My dad came very proud of me playing violence. I, Oh, you great! You know so that stuff. They'll give it up. You know, but then a girl. This really cute white grow came and talked to me after Tracy was her name. that I kind of had a crush on came and talked to me Oh. My God, you're so good! Hey, Hey, I'll talk to. You. Later gave me a hug and everything and I was such a nerd I didn't get any action, and and then I just looked at my that was hoping he'll be proud. And then he looked at me and like hugh and her. Yeah. Wow Yeah so certain things like he goes a little too far making funny. That's a confidence crusher from pops, but I mean once again. It could be because he grew up. He never got no girls like that, and so if I couldn't like. Why am I son? You know he's competing with you a little bit there and that way. I hate to think about that but I think there's got to be a part of that. That's got to be part of why you wanted to get an acting. Yeah, yeah. I maybe that's one of the reasons. Why so confident because he's Shit on you? If you can do it, is this fucking? God can do it. Yeah, yeah, it's a weird like he. He picks and chooses what he gives it up and not so it's manipulative. Little bit, see never now. It's like. Yeah Yeah. Stockholm, since I call them out once and I was like that. Why don't you? Why didn't you first of all? Tell me dating advice and also why that you never think? Date you girls, or whatever right told me years to overcome and he was. Sure but like. I wish said you are smart. Right I! You just give me a non answer of like. He's always said you're smart. That's what's important to me. yeah, so it's sort of like. He's excusing the fact that he. Dismissed your ability to I. Think whatever he wasn't good at. He projected on me. Like I was a small as I was I was a pretty good athlete could run pretty fast. I can jump pretty high. I used to play basketball even the smallest like the underdog, but I was athletic. You know, but my dad like when I was trying out for the basketball team that was like no, you can't do that. You're flat-footed just like me. You can't come. That's so that's the opposite of what some weird like theater parents do or or out coach. Parents do the thing that happens when kids get into athletics where their parents failed sports, and then they get really invested in their kid being awesome. Yes, yes, I'm not sure which way is healthier or both of them less. To both gross. Yeah Yeah, Yeah, there's something really weird about like. It's a burden to for the kids like I've seen it with. Kids were the overbearing parents who just want the kid to succeed so well because it. Boo like that's my boy out there kicking ass. Boy Look out fast very selfish. Only care about the kids being happy. It also fucks with the kids head and a lot of times it ruins their love of whatever the sport is Yeah. I don't know I guess. May. Spy. I'm John Fine. Did. Five seen enough therapy. I'm I'm fine? It's fine. It's fine. He's flawed. We're all flawed. Yeah, no worries it's like. The scene in goodwill hunting like I'm afraid you're GonNa be like Robin Williams and be like it's not your fault. It's not your fault and that just start bawling take. This is the thing is like parents that do weird shit to you. There's there's some benefit to it like my parents were not supportive about anything I've ever done ever and my parents split up and I was really young, so my whole life was like. I'll show you. Show you. Don't get any attention watch. Watch what I can do right, so that was. A led me to get really good at things. Yeah that was, why got really good at everything because I never got any attention. So, my thought was like I. Know How to get attention. Be better than everybody else that everything. Yeah, whatever I do I just have to be just fucking fully immersed in it so I became obsessed with getting really good at things. If I had like really supportive, parents were really there for me all the time like. But that was. That's you. That's your personality to take that kind of negative thing and turned into something awesome. A lot of kids, maybe in that same situation would have been like could. Nobody cares yeah. Yeah well. I got really lucky. That I've found martial arts or really young. When I found it. I realized like Oh, I am good at this. I found a thing that makes me feel like I'm not a loser. Yes, fell. We moved around a lot like we moved from lived in. New Jersey till I was seven, and then San Francisco from seven to eleven, and then Florida from eleven to thirteen and then Boston from. It was like fuck man. I never had like long steady friends I was always the new kid I was always small people always fucking with me. And then. When I got into martial arts, it was the first time I didn't feel like a loser. like once a year or two in when I started getting really good, I was like this is something. Something I'm good at I'm really good at this got praise for my instructor. I got praise from other students that was winning tournaments and I was like I. Am something can file in so i. just threw myself into it like I was just that was my whole life and I always think maybe I wouldn't have been that good if I was just beloved. To my mom. Stepdad in love me, it's just they're fucking busy man and they just they also grew up in a fucked up life to like their their parents weren't supportive, either, so it sort of like that that cycle repeats itself for kids. You know I I thought that. Back in the day, about certain things like acting I'm like if I didn't have low self esteem up about this or if my dad never thought I could be an arts. Maybe I'll never made it here like I. Made it here for a reason right and my therapist at this one thing not to get too like Foo Foo, whatever here so this one thing that really resonated with me. He was like. Have you ever thought about you made it not because of it, but despite of it. So that was that was kind of Nice to hear. Yeah, yeah, this both those things right? It's like whatever it is. It's shapes, your personality, those negatives like there's an ebb and flow to all things, and sometimes those negatives give you this gust of energy to go in the opposite direction in the motivation that you have is sometimes more important than anything else. Sometimes the motivate like the the willingness to go through a lot of shitty things to make it like sometimes, that doesn't exist. He's a really nice, but his mom was too nice to him. When he was young like she gave him too much love, and she always said he was amazing and everything, and he just like he even admits it talking about it. It's like I think my mom was just too fucking. Nice to me like he's drive. He's always loved, and he's always cared for, and always he never felt scared. He never felt alone. He never felt like. There's nobody out here helping me I gotta go do this in my own and I. Remember. That was like my overwhelming feeling. My whole life was like no one's looking out for me. I gotTA. Look out for myself this. This is the world's dangerous. But that dislike. Is All in like I mean that's stupid. Old Expression Life gives you lemons you make lemonade does like whatever it is. That was negative about it. It can become a positive. It could become. A reinforcing thing. Yeah, yeah, every bat set is actually the most helpful thing. Yes, yeah, DUDE! Every time I bombed by talked about that one time when friends came to see me at the Communist on are realizing I'm phoning it in I'm fucking up. that I needed that to happen. Yeah, I needed to happen. With. Acting or standup? It's like sometimes I'm like okay I'm trying really hard to film because I'm proving myself and sometimes you coast, you like Oh wait I coasted on. That movie and people still was like. Oh, he was good. He keep coasting coasting at some point you get caught. House fuck I gotta step it up again. I mean we need lessons? No one's perfect right. We need lessons than some lessons comes strange forms. Sometimes you don't ask for them.

Jimmy O. Yang, Snooki & Joey, and Waffle House Fight Night

"Let's get it. It's another addition. Casey Radio on the Barstool sports network the video for this. If you're watching is probably going to be funny I feel like we're gonNA look like Stevie Wonder Array. Charles is doing a podcast. Look it up at the sky because we have such a bad connection looking at the screen actually makes it harder so we're just doing a a a really long phone call John. What so. We're talking to each other a lot. It's GonNa be something you deal with for the next hour and a half to two and a half hours. I don't know long slog honestly I would say I had two questions in this kind of ties into what I want to talk about nicely. I would say that transitioning over to What you WANNA fuck it? What's what's the what's the term Tele teleconferencing. I think it's been relatively smooth like. I don't think it's I don't think we've lost a stab you know. It's like a little awkward but I feel like the audience hasn't really been like. Oh my God this is brutal so I think that's a testament to to nick. I hate it. I the production of might be fine. I hate it. I don't know it doesn't seem that different to me. This show itself. Isn't that different me? But everything around. It is wrong when we get when we're in we're in the office. We just get in the studio here like faulk. Marana housebound where the The Best I have to like do shows in front of my family. I have to like yet. I feel Boy I dunno you get in your own head about different shit and I don't think the show for me is as good. I missed being able to. It's been very homey I don't know why because when I'm in the studio just tell guests like hey do you mind just filming this video and we get every time I find it incredibly hard to get them to do after the Internet via zoom and I don't know why any different new these year because it's it's they don't to get up but for some reason and I and I missed like when a guest comes in and you like it up and you talk for like ten seconds before start recording makes all the difference so I don't know what the product has been like. Maybe you guys can let us know. It's been because I keep wondering two things one adult let us know. If it's been bad just let us know. I had no bad feedback right now. Fuck Johnny was bad feedbacks our fault but his Ben Gray please last night when we go back if we ever go back if People will just quickly abandon like zoom interviews and go back to the old way and also you've got fucking hope so right. I don't know I think you can get more guests this way. I mean interviews. I'm meetings. I'm I'm speaking for other jobs like that. Yeah well I don't know dude with with twitter. Here's here okay. This is my overarching question for everything. Because I was GONNA ask about Zoom Interviews. I was GONNA ask about fashion and now I can ask about work. Twitter comes out and says you'd never have to go back to work. I think the other digital companies are gonNA follow. Do you thin at like when things resume. We will see long-lasting dramatic changes in the world. Like right now wondering back. Will People Brea had a tweet today? Like I'm never gonNA wear high heels again and I saw you in your in your suit for sportscenter things and I was like. I haven't seen anybody dressed up in fucking months at like. Will there be a paradigm shift where people don't care about those things anymore or will it be like when your social media of updates and you're all like in a in a frenzy for two days and then he just go back to normal no. I think I think I will go back to normal I I. I've worn by the same floor shirts as whole time but not when I get to go outside again. I'll go back to normal. I think largely new might even step out even harder at least for the first few months. Be like all right. I've been saving up for as long as everything's clean saying eleven saving money so I've been buying clothes like a son of a bitch. It's time it's time to step out all these. It fits off boy. I wonder if that's in the lasting impression. That girl virus sweatpants all the time. I'm going to be absolutely dude. I would consider corona virus positive if that's lasting. That's bullshit if you start wearing sweatpants everywhere and I'm not talking like athlete. Aegis weapons which are fashion. I've been like youth fucking stump bags started dressing like some asshole from quincy with dirty white sneakers and fucking boyd socks. Dave fucking written sweatpants shorts fucking luck. You have to move to an island. That's that's a fucking bullshit at least look like you shower today again. If you WANNA wear like comfortable pants that's fine. They're acceptable into comfortable pants but stepped out in fucking dice. Sweatpants and flats would we be doing is plant- anymore. I don't know man. I know it depends on how long this goes. Depends on what the world can being stuck inside even make you not WanNa look at the what the optics of what is attractive. Haven't changed always knowing what's comfortable wasn't yes but when all that people have to offer is just like a little fucking square with your face you know. There's not the same in to dress and look good. No I know but I'm saying like why would that stick afterwards when you're out in public we like it's not like. I learned sweatpants or coming through in Gordon Team Right. Well that's what I mean. No like we'll would there. How long would this need to go for people to like for there to be a paradigm shift about all things culture? Like I wonder if I think I like real estate brokers see that that a big company like twitter is like. We're not going to need buildings anymore. Like that's probably a fucking problem for commercial real estate brokers or the yen enshrining that way for a long time and this is just kind of the last accelerate to get us over the hump definitely trending a traveling salesman used to be a guy who drowned in his car and like that was like the first step of being like okay. This person doesn't need to come into the office everyday. It's just continue progress and there are like jobs like creatives like like. I don't really liked. I don't hate it but I I get a lot of my ideas and shit like when we were just bullshitting on our desk. So without that it doesn't you don't just bullshit on zoom so that's hard but I think that I I would hope that commercial real estate shit has been planning for us is if they haven't been they just. I don't know dude. You look around that Lake like there's GonNa be a bunch of old fuck in white people just get wiped out like the old guy who can't connect to zoom the fucking politicians who don't know how to do this digital shit you know like like when Joe Paterno just died because it was too stressful. I think people are just GonNa fucking die because you have to use computers and nothing else and they just can't do and I think the what was it Launching catastrophe with my parents. We've been watching mine hundred catastrophe which is just so much weird sex stuff in all my Guy John. We'll fuck it. Masochist are you. Yeah it's been bad it's been bad shows and I honestly I've seen both of those shows and if you'd asked me before watching my parents are they overly sexual At all boys my answer changed on that. I'm pretty serious of catastrophe. They're talking about putting a finger in his ass. Aren't they know the first clubs will actually find? It's like season two is working to be too much anyway. The reason I bring it up is. He gets the job at bright band where they had prescription drug that killed a bunch of old white dudes and he was like look if you were GonNa have killed off a bunch of people the best ones to have done it. He's comeback is the old white guys so if you look at it like that. I'm just going. I can't decide who all right. Let's just go full genocidal? If if we're going to wipe out a group of societies that who your pick is without a doubt I can't decide between in the hillbillies though well that Magicians won the It's just look I just don't want people yell at me and dual white guys had the least amount on John.

Thank you friend Miller lite great question almost impossible that do tweeted us and said what show should I star video office always sunny parks and REC? I mean he listed like every great American comedy he said or anything else like. I know you've got a fucking Lega Doomsday bunker. For Twenty five years. Should I start Seinfeld or friends or office but I? Let's let's narrow it down. I think too. I think we can agree. It's between the office and Sunny. Yes and I agree with your sentiment that the office is more Culturally relevant but I also think pure funny to say I know that's the funny doesn't notice on me but the The office is just like the office is almost learn new language. Right where it's like. You're going to get things were use like. Oh Wow I. I didn't even know what Ricky was talking about five years ago but now I get that joke on. I knew a girl who who always said. That's what she said it. Had No idea came Steve Girl Office. I I'm positive he gets credit for that. I'd heard that a Obviously they didn't write that but I feel that was the thing already. Well I mean I'm definitely going to give him credit for popularizing. Then Yeah Yeah. Yeah that's why I can't tell you. I cannot give you a name of anybody before that. So no you're on. That five dollars was kind of resented him getting like he's. I thought that he can't other elsewhere. But that's that's neither at this point though because it just ties into our earlier. Conversation will the office within even just a couple of years. Now be like outdated no you. Don't you think they'll always be like office dynamics? That'll be understandable. All I see what you're saying. Okay you're a fully digital worlds and I mean if you think about it under. Mifflin is like the most archaic fucking company in the world. Write a paper company like yeah but at the same time in office is just a microcosm for society like. I found the humor in the office. I started watching him sophomore in high school. Right you're and I got it and I've never really worked in an office now. We're getting to prematurely working in an office. You only have the idea and I did this with cubicle. Chronicles do mail time. The overarching theme of all that is just annoying. People Broach always that that's that is for infinity. That will be understandable in relatable. I watched the office in high school. Like Dwight okay. That's James Mela mentally school. You can just like everyone. You have that person in your life no matter what you might not work with them but you can easily put all of your cells in one room. Like I'm Jim of course goes on the fucking normal one because everyone's normal one and then that's fucking That little how is Meredith? You can put all of you in the room just knowing personnel out having to be in an actual law that little yoga when I think about meredith like if I see that actress I would think of like a blue bag. Hope See I. She said that I remember. I read it right. Ama with her and like she wasn't a big actress is really. The office is very strange. Fill US like fucking costume designer and I think meredith was a similar situation. Don't quote me on that. When she was talking about like out she just Dumped them all the time. She's a guy was down whatever Ghitis Do reminds me speaking of that. We're going all over the place in. We're fucking working Maybe there's hold each other facing work The in name parks and REC. There's a very famous scene where Andy comes to the door Naked and He's he's coming to surprise fucking. It's office but what's her name And these comments surprise an and but Leslie opens a door and sees him naked extreme freaked out. They kept trying to take the end of the kept trying to take kept trying to take kept trying to take. Couldn't they couldn't get it. So Andy just actually showed up naked on In Is Leslie. Nope or now earning this is leslie. Dopes actual reaction to seeing Andy. Dwyer's he can you imagine doing that right now. That I mean you're going to fucking jail bro. Fuck it Lonzo. As the Dick Pic onset respect that though man that's awesome that's the craft also dipped their France rightly I forget what season assists. But YOU'RE A few seasons. In your like showing your. Your friend is different than like sucking on a roll. There'd be some you know production assistant who felt uncomfortable. It'd be something that it's like well. I'm not friends with him. And he subjected needed that. But it was like it's an awesome moments phone fucking gone. They got the fucking modern version job. Dropping Alan Rickman off right Allie. Ricky was dropped on what two or one or whatever it was instead. Three axle surprised when he's falling right. That's actually surprising Leslie Space. Just she saw this the guy on the exorcist. The director used to fire guns in the air blanks to scare people just to keep them like on edge. There was like psychotic. But that's why that movie is fucking awesome. All those things make great greatness crazy. Except what jared Leto said you Dildos fucking onset of suicide squad because add movie still saw? Yeah that was. Not THAT WAS NOT WELL-CALCULATED. Houston what like fucking Tampa odds and use condoms. I don't know that that law has gotten so out of control now for everything he said but he sent a lot So wait what's your final. Answer officer stunning. I stop sticking with the US. Watch the office. I 'cause it's just I think fertilizing the office is easy here and I think I think it's a less dense watch and then and then sunny also Me Is at the offices of warm up does less undertaking or maybe it's a Mormon undertaking. I forget because this. Sonny's got way more seasons but the office twenty episodes per season. Yeah and but I also think that the office is GonNa hit you with like sentimental episodes like you'll tear up on the office occasionally. You're not gonNA say now. There's no question. Do you think that they'll do like a sentimental goodbye with the with starting that command you emotional? No I think I think he's GonNa go just like the fucking guys going. I think we got a taste of it with dentists which is like I am going turns white. It'd be perfect honestly if I could script the ending to Sunny. I want them to literally throw frank out in the trash on frank die. I want them to throw him in the alley and they just like walked walkway. And that's all right back to go back in and that's it. That's it on to a little sopranos cut. Franks out in the trash maybe rockies there. I don't know. Roxie skeleton curled up like Romeo and yes yeah I I think I'm with you probably office I but cannot go wrong. Oh One last thing we'll make it A. Dvr You talk about dense watches. I talked about it with my brother but I gotta talk about overview Middle Age and shorts. Yes I find it to be and I I know I'm prone to hyperbole. I might be a prisoner of the moment a lot. I've given it some time. I don't know if I'll tell you it's the funniest thing I've ever watched but I will tell you. I never laughed out loud at baby. Anything other than like the best best. Chapelle standup than I did. Middle digital towards I mean it's A. It's one hour of nonstop. It lease chuckles. If not like full-blown tears and like stomach hurting wildness. Over the first five minutes I was like In for something completely different than ever seen before. And I've I've never seen Improv. I've never gone like once like a drunken improv night. I've never seen good improv. Bad Improv. I've never seen him. I complete did you have an opinion of it or even even having now. I read your blog. I didn't I didn't disagree with what you thought about like I I knew I co- hoarded with people who did think that I wasn't like you're a fucking loser by wasn't also rushing to go obviously the of trope to be like you know the annoying over the top. Try Hard actor guy and I'm sure those existing problems and I'm I'm sure for the middle just the best at it or they do it in a very like. Trent texted me after that blog and he said the main thing that differentiated a forum. Was that it kind of break. The fourth wall and acknowledge how fine Don. This always stay in character. This is important. They're just kinda like I mean when middle dish is is saying like you can definitely tell a Ben. Schwartz wants to just throw wrenches into everything and middle ditches like I really don't WanNa let that alien out of the closet because it's GonNa totally fuck up the storyline dude. I need you to understand. How important is stay on track year? But I mean did you. Did you feel anything? I felt it twenty thirty minutes in. I was like we're going to do this for a full hour. Like I think I kind of get the point. But that's what I thought. It really picked up. When they started doing the call they started having like ten or twelve characters going. So if you're not it's Improv and you think that like it's repetitive. Just try to push through that because that's when really it's that the the. I thought it was one of my favorites. One was my favorite one. Like it's crazy. It's almost like I attributed to bar. School luck now where it's just like what are the odds. That's the guy who's there like. What like that Guy? Who's telling the story with At the moment of I laugh out loud was when Schwartz goes yeah. It's about time you take over again. One of the friend is telling the story of them. Wedding is GONNA be Great. This is going to be so good. It was late. Thought that was really like the net flicks machine is behind. Did you have these big a-list stars telling me that they didn't think to plant someone in the audience or perhaps a material had time but then I remember what you just said is that people are always accusing that with Arsenal. And it's like no man factor stranger-than-fiction. Then that's the the craziest people are the fucking Weirdos out like there's no way you can sit down and be like best friends for three years at musical festival who ozone a Walmart. Parking lot after trying to each other. That's the wedding is like. That's that's too much you can't do now. I have two more questions. One Who you think. The star is 'cause I go back and forth on both of them like he had the better episode. He had the better performance to. I want to get back in here. I've been dealing with for a little bit. Because when he was on the show he was promoting sonic and he just. Kinda like you know mentioned this at the very end. Well hang on here even just mention and we're GONNA do this. He mentioned it said he wants us to be the first test case. Who SEES IT ON VIDEO? I N sees it live seconds so he wanted us to be this guest for. I think I think the show I think the show New Yorker supposed to be an ape and obviously canceled but when that show gets announced band he's getting called up my guy where my happening like. I am not one to hold people to podcast promises. Yeah come on my show. Hey let's get together that one Ben. We're coming for those tickets. Do I have so many questions for because I think the main thing I want to know is they put up three specials. Right what Is Do you think they did that? Five Times ten times fifty times. It's one hundred percent. I think if you're in the crowd you're laughing ten times harder. You think they just. They just did three specials and they got three netflix worthy episodes. I think if you are I because I had when I first tweeted at tweeted about it I had people are blinding. Be Like I saw it live and it was the funding. I saw a difference here. Are Boy Nick just said they recorded I? That is incredible. Abe recorded four. They released three that. I already said it was the most like brilliant comedy I ever saw. But the fact that they went three for four on it and had three not only arable but very laugh out loud funny specials is I really think it's the most impressive thing I've seen coming seriously. I'm pretty sure they said to. It wasn't even like the phone was bad. It was just like we just put out free best because we were only contract. Do Three. But we're able to record for. I mean I thought I love. I think that is so fucking cool that those dudes are probably what they're they're you know when you when you talking about stereotypical trump's they're like the theater kids. They're the IMPROV nerds. Whatever and well I think when I see those two on stage doing that I'm like these guys are fucking rock stars like probably swooning. Dudes are jealous. They are like the stars of the world in my mind. Middle Middle Age was I middle. Which is this comedic star. I think is the writer. I I could see 'em both like in their element out there and I think Schwartz had a glow to where he was writing. Tv shows like that has helped me with like quickly the storylines but middle baby laugh So the first episode like obviously I said and military maybe laugh out loud the most in it so I'm GonNa give him the Star treatment but he also looks the most a star. He looks like he's had quite a glow up. Silicon Valley. Well I also would say that The physical comedy that that middle ditch does like when he when he was doing shortfall and sits like when they when he becomes a girl when he becomes short he let visit. You can see the difference in his buys. Why so if you haven't given a shot and I know I know there are Barstool fans tons of them if not like all of them that would say Improv. Show no fucking way. I'm begging you to go watch middle digit shorts. If you've ever have you ever thought our recommendations are good. This one is like a mortal fucking lock that you will laugh so go watch it. And we'll get this morning. The first thing I said was a descendant in my head but for some reason I was just like such a special occasion and why you lick them. The mom sort ball is on loose superior you asked me to be Lucite now. So many good quotes that the fact that none of them ridden is fucking mind. So that's it for Barstool. Dvr It's Thursday so it's time to get into MIT asshole. I have two quick things real quick. Sorry I we won't. It doesn't need a stagnant as each do. Fuck comes to throwback cups one but crocs Kid big-time crocs kid that dude crocs was a A funny case man. He claimed he wanted to just edit. He claimed he wanted to be behind the scenes as soon as he got barstool. Put THE VODKA CROCK. John put the wallpaper on his desk. All that Shit and I. I don't even really begrudge him for doing stupid shit on doc because like a fucking game right now but doing it during a fucking pandemic like people have masks on and you're dumping cereal on them and all that. Shit. Yeah it was it was. It was tolerable not during the pandemic. Like I never saw much of it. But I'd like this isn't funny but whatever things aren't funny to me doesn't mean South Korea. Everybody I'm fine with that. And but this is like you're being a legitimate fucking piece of shit like a bad person like that fucking. That's FUCKING CEREAL. Video in your. Kate crushed her blog on this one in particular. The yellow and people's faces like come on account fuck takeout restaurants. Where people just trying to do their job is fucking bullshit. Your stomach You're strapped. I mean that is the that's the example of like when you like cloud chasing goes severely wrong and I'm surprised it's like I don't know that dude should be just fucking race. I don't know if there's any Enough of a fan base to like stick with him. But I can't imagine anybody given that do the time anymore to fuck him. A nice throwback fuck it again. Fuck hockey twitter dude. There they're going right now. There's a little thing happening where it's It was I think it was calling. Wilson was on I'm trying to find it real quick. Colin Wilson. I believe the avs was on the bar down podcast and it's like So I'M GONNA redesigning it says it says if you ever wanted this restrictive hockey culture as from a young age. This is a great example. And it's When Colin Wilson stalking their asking. Why doesn't wear colored tape on his stick and he's like I just don't have it. I think it's cool on our focus. Sorry I'm a little place on your opinion on getting is Colored Tapeh cool thing lame thing normal thing what abnormals thing which therefore makes it a lame got it for. Also there is the theory that Black I don't start theory. It's back black tape. Hides the puck better. Yeah absolutely emily's don't know when you're shoot she like that. Which is why I tentatively stuck up whoever it was in San Francisco who said like Lamar Jackson. Hide the ball better. I was like I didn't stick up but I was. That was something we were taught in hockey. Where it's like if you have white tape your show boat lactate I was a white guy. Naturally I WANNA know your opinion on this. What about colored says colored tape? I don't know I Not for the NHL BY THINK. It's pretty fun to experiment. And I think those I mean. Get excited during those. Everyone can play night. Redo warm up in Rainbow Tapes. I want to keep that game. I think it's pretty dope style so I don't use I just don't have it in me. Get trip by my teammates team Still try to play. The game is getting roasted for like our restrictive and and Let's see what a quote is player? Your team says it's obvious the teaming questions not nearly as progressive with light to think how they'd like to use Rainbow Tapes during game. Ursel he's not talking about rainbow colored coming out of the closet making some grand statement them. But can you don't WanNa get and it's like it's they're they're both true. You lose people when you go so crazy with that like right right. It brought to our progressive Ten they are restricted. I I do like to think probably what I associate. The most with that hockey would be the most progressive Locker rooms and they are kind of more like I mean the closest to being gay already like the like. Is it just snow? They've had if you can play you can play a lot of the stars have spoken out in that where. I think stars other leagues have been a little more quiet but a lot of guys have been looking focused on my own hundred bucks like he's not talking about Rainbow Davies. Do we make five guys like how they take their knobs take their stiglitz. Just make fun of people. You're doing something a little different you make fun of. It doesn't mean are your day is just like you're being weird are not hateful. It's not bullying it's probably like better for camaraderie in a way for all the stuff like that it. I I used to do you. Kinda spin your tape right and then he kind of make your job like that and it puts grip on your job and again at Young Age. I was taught that makes easier to pick up off the ICE. If you dropped it and what do you get child a union. You still need that knocks. I didn't have a big fat up top. Don't get me wrong. It was it was still a regular Just had that the grip with scripts and it was like I was made fun of work was gay. It was just different than what other people did. So I if I showed up in fucking if I use red-tape green tape that would be weird. Not Get made fun of for. Yeah I mean you were gave for many other reasons fucking out of debt. Give me a brady.

One more time we lock on this show today I saw you tweeted me from last night. My One thing though thing is actually a big thing. It was the perfect time to bring it up with the devil on the game. I think we'd change religion. Why doesn't the Devil Make Hell Awesome counterpoint? How do we actually know? That's not the case he would tell us is his job is to sow discord on earth is. Job is to make people back in get souls yet. But here's the time I feel like the devil. The devil doesn't have a lot of followers on social media. I feel like I feel like God has more followers than it's fake news and the the devil just can't get the word out there like come on down here is pretty fucking awesome. You know what I mean. You're not wrong with that. That's a fair take that he doesn't someone someone tweeted. I'd be curious so he doesn't have the PR machine. That God has right like like anarchists. Are you know shunned by society? What if what if like you know the Pentagram and the all that Shit is because hell is where it's fucking while the churches say is one of the nicest twitter gone. The charges say in twitter account is much like the point hub comment section where it's like. Oh this is also good person here. These people are like the churches say account gets mad at people who are being bad. Yeah they might be the guy. The Angel who fell from grace is actually just like well. Doesn't that make sense? You know what I mean like. It's always the guy who's holier than thou. That has the skeletons in his closet. And it's the guy who's gone through. Hell that is like the most you know. My cards are on the table. Here's the fucking deal. Maybe we've just been reading the situation wrong for two thousand years. It checks out to me though. Reenter his are. We going to be saying worshipers you. Will you got the apple tattooed kit? They put your morning Pentagram on the arm Yeah there you go air or something. I mean it makes a lot of sense if if you made hell awesome. It's like you know I'd rather left with the senators that cry with the same sort of thing. People will be flocking to the gates of hell before they want to go to a party and Alice. Talk about the astles of society This one went viral as far as mighty asshole does And I don't know what to make of it because it might be asked is a very like we've been saying all on this episode. Fat can be stranger than fiction but sometimes he got really question are these. Are these stories real? Are they embellished? And the latest one that went viral about the waffle house is it's either going to be a factor stranger than fiction or we're going to have to assume that you know there's a little bit of creative freedom year so John Reid this this waffle and the reason why I am inclined to believe it. Is We know that. All bets are off on on waffle house. So that's that's what I was. GonNa say before we got there. I believe a hundred percent because one dealer obsessive lawful house to the lunatics lunatics. I I lived in Tallahassee. I live right next door to waffle house for three to five years and it was always like people were stunned. As I've never been women have been why would I go to the Diet? Don't have a need to go but anyway here is. I know this sounds really weird but here it is my boyfriend and I have been together for three years net and started dating when we were both in graduate school by dropped out to go back. Scholars We have both Finnish now live together making a fairly nice combined. Our income is relevant because we could afford somewhere.

He loves animals in his kind gentle at every bug burden. Petty comes across. He's always almost always willing to turn the other cheek in social situations where somebody tries to insult or get aggressive towards him and usually winds at defusing the situation having a productive discussion about whatever the issue was accepted. Laos. I'm changing my mind. I'll on it not true. Too much unnecessary detail that lake. We don't need to know about the back story. The history the father because when you get to the punch line here it's like who fucking cares but. I guess if you wanted to paint the picture that this is a wholesome thing he's not a violent guy but Levin caring for bugs diffusing situations having productive. Discussions will take visa situation as a productive discussion. Ninety way so cuts to the chase Okay I guess it's a lot Anytime we're He wants to go. The same day get practice tweets. I'm not a big useful. I usually don't really care. I would go and drink coffee in my book while he enjoys his food crazy to. Why are you reading booklets food? But that became impossible once he in. This cook started chirping each other. Every time we went there will complain about his exit one time because he likes him a little runny and they were served. Heart responded by giving him scrambled eggs when he brought up again the Kooks to hardware legs. I think as far as the cook stick it was Kinda funny to be honest. Lebanon wasn't able to laugh at all. We laugh teams in Canada About the next week. We're going out shop. We're going out getting some shopping done and he wanted to go to las again. I suggest that we tried a different place where this is different blouse location but he only wanted the same house. We went in and sat down at once again. Sam Cooke Service Service is excellent by voip sort of snapped and he. He wasn't interested in messing around in one of the correct eggs cooked entertainment piece of toast with a hole cut out the middle of the Friday. My boyfriend got really mad through through the toast. The Cook which made the cook come around from behind the bar and throw it back at of the sort of wrestling fighting into like this is bullshit. Walked out nobody got hurt but a few people are watching laughing at. This is the crazy my boyfriend keeps going back and ordering eggs and getting into fistfights with the same. It's almost ritual at this point. Boyfriend was running eggs to cook. Serves of another version eggs. I quit calling with an after the second fight but he keeps going by himself. The giant chicken with family I. It's the weirdest thing they physically floods six or seven times over this. That's bad to me is like we have a video by now. There would be something right six or seven bites a waffle house. No evidence no any idea. Look here's the start of this. One waffles evil are passionate about their house to revoke PAT waffle. House are passionate about being crazy right cooks it walked blouse are not here for the bullshit there there. There are people who have dealt with crazy people who vows and they're at wit's end every single day clock it every fucking day clock in they are Rolex people. They're like they're they're on the front line with the SCELZO society right. They're they're they're fucking runny egg order away from fucking stabbing some work. Release like you. You don't you just apply for a job at waffle house. That's when you're talking you're on probation right if community service. They're like it's your last that you need to prove that you're finding work or else you don't get you back to jail like I'll take that job at the fucking waffle house. It's that that is what you do before you go out go off. I'll also say I think there's a little bit of a cultural divide going on. 'cause black twitter was like this should is true. Bro. If you've ever been to the waffle house do you know how possible is is and I think a lot of the white folks no way he can't possibly be and then I always go back to like if it's not if it's not true like hire that person who posted this as a fucking blogger. 'cause that's that's K B type shit where you're just cooking up cooking up vakhin ideas in your brain. You writing TV scripts or whatever the I I. Also if it's true I'm jealous 'cause like I love this kind of action. I wish I had it but you know when girls Bubis while they WANNA passionate guy. A girl doesn't want me then. There is like there's nothing in like that fucking like. I must want this man I must have been. He's is questioned my manhood and I must take him down. I'm just going to go to a new place but the people are crazy. Yeah I mean. Let's chivalry is dead. It's like you know a man can't stand up for his eggs. What what don't stand for something you'll fall for anything so let's pray that the the waffle house is violent as advertised does does it make you think like what a what a what a coward you are. What I I wouldn't even. I wouldn't say anything. I might not even notice if I were scrambled eggs. Yeah I mean. Part of me is is jealous that you know this guy. Is that passionate but party. Also thinks like the difference between eggs over easy or over hard or scrambled boy. It's the same fucking day. You're asshole if you complain dude. I'm like in the office when they try and see what they can trick. Fuck it. Stanley did not noticing. But I think it's I think it's fucking I can't do names today Guy Cream would he like? I think it's him who bites a potato thinks it's yes right like I evaluated staking. You brought out chicken. I just eat it. I'd I'd probably I noticed. Okay let's not be ridiculous. I noticed but I wouldn't. I wouldn't even hesitate before going into eat right. Not a Second Mighty astle here. Nyc asshole for not wanting my girlfriend to bleed all our sheets again. My girlfriend gets a heavy period. The first two or three days I have nothing against periods. Their natural and leaks happen. They happen however for the last two. She's had she refuses to put on a pad at first when she stopped them. Come on both times both times. We're in bed and trying to sleep and she's like I think that's my period and I say okay we'll go get a pattern check and she's like Nah. I'm too lazy and fell asleep. We woke up to the bloodiest mess. Second time last month. Pretty much repeated what happened where coddling. She's like there's there's definitely my period but I'm too lazy. I remembered the month before offered to get pads new underwear and she's like. Nah It's fine. It wasn't fine. She bled all over in the sheets when I got squeamish and tried to put them in the wash immediately. She laughed and said it's normal yesterday. I put my foot down. It's near time again. I said listen. You gotTa Take Care of this first. She laughed and said I was being a baby. When I insisted she said I was being misogynistic being an asshole now she won't talk to me because apparently I'm baby about it. I don't want to wake up in a bloody mess and my being unreasonable.

Just open it up and let people die. I sat there in silence for like thirteen minutes fucking. I don't know what was going on there. That was wild but Dave is all aboard. I think Dave would murder FAO G with his bare hands if he saw him right now. I don't know how it's going to wrap up in the next twenty minutes is three forty as we record this.

That fight posted her mother's Day about skipping school repeatedly on just not giving a fuck so shout out vital but On anything about the time I got on keeping school and then my punishment or not showing up to school was that I got suspended for three days. So that's been they. Punish me for not showing up somewhere by making us show up somewhere and I was wondering what the dumbest punishment you ever got like middle or high school or any point. Your child was. That's why in school suspension was the truth. Did you guys have that? We had to middle school. I never got it definitely a thing because yeah I mean I'll know don't fuck it. Make me stay home and watch prices right. You really showed me you sit alone in a room but also they do show you that. I feel like that's kind of a common thing. People like bring that up is suspended. Maybe school like when he was skipping. School were parents. Didn't know Aaron's Lake you had to be a real fucking renegade to be like. I'll give a fog that suspended from school. That's usually the sentiment behind the idea of like. You'll get a combat school anymore. Because you weren't coming to school does it really make an fuck sets? I was just telling your parents and then like and then. Your parents depending on each religion parents to setup babysitters something high school but when you're younger years I I have no school skip school more middle school than in high school and I never got caught but had I gotten caused. That would've been rob from. Yeah I feel like my mom was a G. I remember my mom always saying like. Don't worry about your teacher. Worry about me like if you don't get good grades. Your teacher doesn't like you don't fucking care if you know if you if I think he did a good job in which to do. Don't worry about them so I was like listen to answer to you. Bitch answer my mom so you do everyone. My Mom's would me were good. I don't know if I ever really was. I didn't get suspended. It was one time in elementary school at a kid me a ball. That was a fucking farce. That was a hoax. I don't think I ever really got in trouble. I almost got to spend. It wasn't a punishment this was to avoid punishment middle school when I passed. The Kid was during gym class fucking. I. I don't know if I call boxers or if he wasn't wearing boxers Fucking Vicki Cain. And like you're traveling Q. Like he was like dude. I I think I'd report you for this. And you're like you're going to sexual assault. You're in sears. Really excited brands like what happened today. I guarantee you could seriously vase. That will will luckily for me. He made me shoot. Free throws invited six hundred ten again dribble and you hit it like I forget. I forget what Alabama had it was and how many I did IT I. I was safe while shooting. The kid would just sitting Indian style on the corner like fucking chirped mirror anything. It wasn't like Fuck College basketball game but he was like watching me and I don't know if you want me to hit him because he was my friend where it was a random bullying but I don't know how he wanted to go because he wasn't allowed to the I rose clutched to the moment didn't end up on a sex offenders list. Have you know we talked about this somewhere recently? Might write that down was to learn on that yes. It is believable pilot episode of a TV show right. There was one of favorites. Vital Bookstores period. We'll I thought I told here. If you didn't know about it where would I talk about it? I mean I definitely have a of a vision of you talking about panting somebody with their dick out. But I don't think I knew that you could get off the hook by shooting free throws and I. We didn't know that he was sitting on the fucking baseline watching a pressure situation tool assault victim. Watching your shoot hoops I could. I could take jagged. Take you out right now. I. It's not far from my house. I could take rights is of course you gotta go shoot one thing. I learned on location. Holy Shit is lucky unreal. All right. It's time for our interviews.

I'm good no complaints. Chilling chilling mcrib. Do are you got bodies. That is a special art. You know that is from the Senate Silicon Valley. That is awesome. You saw on the Hacker House. It's actually this carpeted art that one of our designers Jordan Paul. That's pretty cool. That's believable. You guys all grab whatever you wanted to take one thing. They asked what we want. It and I really wanted this thing but I know that when you gotta buy. We can't just give that to you. I was able to strike a decent deal with Jordan so that was nice. I I think he's doing all right. Can you can manage right. I can manage one piece of art in my house argue. You got that in a good deal. Now that's pro. That was approachable. The new show out on Amazon prime right now. It sounds like you are kind of the most stereotypical Asian guy ever. But only you want to be able to make those jokes and my right. No I mean. I've my stories are told from the very first person point of view. I think that's the only way I know how to do. Stand up and tell my stories. Because I never want generalize but yet my life dust fit some of the stereotypes but yet some of them I turn them on its head. You know like we don't all have small Dick's as you on the special for the audience. Listening to the hasn't seen a special. I might or might not have pull my dick out in the Special Ed. I didn't do that anyways but yeah I just talked from a very first person. Point of view and some things are true. Something's on that and then You know everything in the special is true. I'm talking about the. Stereotypes are true or not and It just that's the only way I know. How the share story and humanize these stereotypes. Instead of you know generalizing the Ping Pong is the one. That's real like take the ping pong grew. When did it start? And when did you realize that probably wasn't gonNA be free? I started playing paintball. How kids here would have started. Like Pop Warner Football. Pretty Young Right. I would guess maybe like around first grade six years old. You know how you out of the ordinary in school or or is it like everyone's trying the ping slot. I think for some reason. My parents took it very seriously. Like we go to practice and they'll take me to train and maybe the coach or whatever saw colonel like be like. Oh this guy could be something. Other kids might have taken classes or played on the weekend but wasn't taking it as seriously so we took a very simpson many table. You know what's funny the first time I ever got on. Tv was when a butterfly. The table tennis company the Ping Pong Company. We're trying out these adjustable height tables and I was one of the kids getting interview. 'cause was such a tiny little cute little kid and that was my first. Tv experienced as news interview But yeah I have like really cute videos because I was really small even for my age of like me being like Chin-high with the table and like just killing it on these strange if you like if if if you're doing training in the special you kind of make it seem like I think he was saying when Your Dad gave you advice like you to slow your stink. You're actually really good. I was good. I was competing at a tournament level for some reason. I've like really good form. I look good playing it but I I just wasn't a winner like how you we're watching. We've been watching like the last dance. Like Jordan is just like the ultimate winner. You know I was more like Scott Burrell like just I didn't have the winner mentality so always ended up like fourth or fifth in the tournament's But Yeah I was I had a little moment of fame when I got on. Tv A couple of interviews as a kid not for my skills. I don't think I was decent but I was just kind of like a cute little kid. Where if you pick up the paddles now. Are You ultracompetitive about it? Not Not now started. We just opened up a game room in our office back. Before this quarantine there was a lot of office rivalries brewing and there are people take that shit very seriously and I would imagine someone who was in a tournament level as a six year old. You get the juices swollen again and it comes out the thing is it's a lose lose situation for me if I win. Okay the Asian kits supposed to win right. He was a private if I lose. Then they're like Oh my God. He's he's nothing he thought you know and also you have to try. All Jimmy's asshole about wrestler is better is not a having. You gotTA UNDERSTAND I. My Body has changed since I was six years old. And I haven't tried and longtime and ping pong is so precise it's all about practice so I think I can still look really good. I can still look like a professional player. If I were to shoot a movie about Ping Pong I would like a spin. Throw the ball super high on the serve a whatever but the ball landing on the other side of the table on the right place. I don't think I've been a practice for that. You'd be like one of the guys in the miracle movie may have like actual hockey players display. And they weren't very good hockey but if you tell anyone who's a little though you could tell they had it at some point. You don't really have it anymore. That's the Fuckin- sweet spotlights though if you can if you look at one point you had it because then you can tell the war stories of J I was a fucking menace out there. I could really make up the craziest. Shit like I met. I met the president of which is not even a thing but I feel like when it comes to play Ping Pong. I'm like an an one basketball player sauce or whatever they look incredible with the crossovers dogs but like why aren't they end? Nba like what's wrong with their game. Joggers so you are the equivalent of not having a jumper in at the sign when when hot sauce is doing his thing people. I look good. Yeah Yeah Yeah you know. That's that's nothing to turn your nose up man. How about the rest of the special? What was it like? I'm always interested when people have like a very firmly established acting career and then continuing to stand up and which you feel like. You're more at this moment yell it's hard because the special just came out. I feel like juices flowing again. I'm getting new ideas. Obviously I can't go out to try material but the same time also writing. I'm also you know acting and all that and preparing for certain thanks so it's just great to be in a position to do kind of whatever I want at this point and hopefully they keep letting me do that. I was talking to my manager and he was like well. What do you think about you seconds? Special you're going to do on. Do you have a time line? I was like I don't have a time line. I really don't want to put a timeline on but let's just say I'm not done yet. Rights don't feel like I got shit to talk about And I started as a stand up so I think that's always my first love. That's always something I was good at. That's the thing that got me an agent. That's the thing that got me to acting auditions and stuff. So I think it will not just be unwise but I think the unfulfilling if I completely stopped doing stand up and I did that for a few seasons. Silicon Valley like she's in four five towards the end of Silicon Valley or three or four around there. When I was like starting to make some money I was like oh I don't have to eat. Rahman I don't have to be on the road doing shitty bars anymore. You know I was like fine. Take Take my foot off the gas. Let's just enjoy the ship? But then there's something unfulfilling and it's only when I started preparing for the special when not to go on tour again. It was exhausting shooting space force Monday through Thursday. And then I'll go on the road like Friday through. Saturday is exhausting but I was like. Oh this is good. This feels good. This is what I know. I'm good at why Michael Jordan. It was like when Jordan was playing. He's doing space jam and playing. Pick up it's like you're you know maybe they'll pay on but with acting like mgm out. That's very nice of you think you can make a lot more money being the Michael Jordan of acting them. Be the Michael Jordan of ping-pong you say. Obviously you started standup I was reading an interview with you. I think he was. Mpr forget but you an awesome line. Where you're like googling. Local Open. Mics is lasting. You Google before you to kill yourself yes. I don't understand how shitty and sat standup a Lotta People WanNa do it. But they bust out but but to immerse yourself in that lifestyle which is the only way to get good performed seven days a week or whatever I you have to be so desperate that you know other social lives or you know there's something off that's why you died are all sick in the fucking head to do that multiple times a day. Seven days a week suck at it for years for decades thinking that because for some reason that's still better than alternative every comic. I've talked to that started comedy Cutter Right now. We're least excuse me on stage every night and they hate me but I feel a lot of ridicule and embarrassed by the empty audience. Yes I live. You said you weren't good for the first year or two why nobody was. I think you know what what was your worst experience with it or did you have somewhere you just like almost quit stand up and decided to go. Kill yourself route opposite. It's funny asked. I actually wrote about this story in my book. This is about two years in. I was finishing my last college and San Diego and he will have a lot of different pockets. A lot of military pockets of Latino communities and there's also super racist people so like oh I was performing performed in imperial beach which is a beach town. But it's like super super like just like racist star an backwards in a way and it was disbar show and I remember people telling me about this bar. Shows like y'all? It's hot there Joe. This other comic Joe Perform their last week and they screamed out the N. Word at him onstage. And I mean this do want him a black like he was just like a white dude. You know and we're like what the fuck you know and I remember going there. It was just. Everybody was eating shit that night Tough Crow people were drunk. There heckling the yelling shit just chugging but lies nobody WANNA listen to these dumb like stand ups on stage so I told the DJ which is just a drunk man when an ipod play the song when I get on stage okay and then I got on stage and it came on. Everybody was cone foo fighters and and then and then start sharing laughing and shit and I was like I cut that music. You Racist motherfuckers used that against them kind of work. But before that moment or even during that moment is the scariest thing. Because if that didn't work I could have just gone like really fucked up like physically so that in that place they do it for ya how to perform in front of racist people come quite a long way from that. Space bores the cast is. I mean it's comical. It's like an all star. Who's who lineup. I mean could not be better timing. Everyone stuck at home looking for something to watch a lot of start on that Joe. What are you expecting that drops? I mean I've seen it already. Strop in May twenty nine th the only thing I wish is will come earlier You know just so people can watch a now but it was incredible because I think the first day on set I was pretty damn nervous. It was seen would me? Steve Ron. John Malkovich and I was like Holy Shit. What's called but you know what they're all of them. That nicest. Most professional best people and I watched the episodes come together. I just became a fan. I was just watching as the fan because I'm only in so many scenes in another scenes about the big picture in a music and everything. It's it's just. I would say that humor is like of course created by Greg. Daniels and Steve's office level humor and it's a workplace comedy but the stakes are super high. Because it's this military branch and the visuals on a music or shot like incredible hundred million dollar movie so when this show was conceived had the space floors Ben created yet or did this show. I WanNa think that's more the question for Greg Steve. But I think it was. Trump jokingly saying boots on the moon and we are going to create a space for stats the initial kernel of an idea for the show. And then we're shooting the show. Finally in the show after develop last year does already some space for chatter like It was a real space already created. But they haven't gone there first. Recruits is not operational yet so the show is actually ahead of the real space force but then when we hear about the news after we finished shooting the show like in the beginning of the year. where Space Force We're having debut in like the new uniforms and stuff we're like oh we did that in the show right. Kinda head of it Veep veep was ahead of its time right. And it's life imitating art so We were speaking of the cast of Space Force officers in your of main character in in a good deal. And how how? How did that happen? It was I think I had jokingly mentioned the John Malkovich and Ben Schwartz. That might that is also an actor. Because I talk about my special. My Dad started acting after I did. Because he was so easy. You can do it. I can probably and that was like fine. You know go go out. Sign you up with an agent somewhere and then you go eat shit at some auditions and then you see our heart. My life is right but then the plan completely backfire because it was actually pretty fucking good and there's only like three old Asian men in Hollywood like at all. There's not a lot of picking so there's this one episode. I think we need a couple older Chinese characters that can also maybe speak manner like know from China. Something like that And Greg was I always you know you have to hire the same guys or whatever and I didn't want to speak up I. I don't WanNa just volunteer my dad you know and then. I think John was the one after the table. Read that one up Greg Miller. Hey have you thought about Jimmy Stat? So then later on I cut together and acting real of the commercials and little stuff that my dad did you know like Patriots Day he played my dad. Senator Greg Greg You know. Just give the old man a chance. Maybe he'll come in. Let them audition. But I think they must've saw something in him. He got the job that's it he's he's perfect came in and killed it man. He came in and really killed it much. Does he pretty unique experience? Like you've never worked with the DAD before that right. I must that he play my dad but it was a very scene but this was I mean. I don't WanNa give too much of the scene away. But let's just say we're all working together right. Malkovich Stephen Everyone and I warned them I was I. Steve John I'm sorry that's coming in He's GonNa ask for selfies. Okay because that's it doesn't care how much he's getting paid. He just want a Selfie. That's the main thing he wants and then John. No no no no. Don't worry about that. We're going to ask him. I know he became like space force mascot for that APP and everybody just loves because you know you should long days and stuff and then somebody's dad comes on and actually act. That's a great story and people loved it. I mean that was a really fun day. I've heard Drought Horn demand. That's the point spot in this whole shit show man. That's pretty stuff. Yes speaking Gordon you said in a special you say that he he calls you every three hours. I believe it was talking that much dude so hard to talk and Goran team when people like what's up because you don't have an excuse anymore tonight talk to anyone you talk about once you get going. I don't know man I just watch TV again today. That's that's so true. Yeah we have this. We Chat family group chat so we chatted. What like Chinese people use. What's APP which at whatever and they just leave instead of calling me now just both my parents. They just leave like long winded. Like minute to minute. Three minute. Like voice. Memos and those are those are so hard to 'cause. I'm listening to Radio. I can read a tag stolen whatever watching TV. But then you gotTA. That's your entire focus has to stop and listen to that. And sometimes I listen to like every other one zee get away with it you know and then I just text back. Something she was it was like. Oh that's amazing. You know those noodles look great but you know. Sometimes he catches me later on was like. Did you read that article? I send you see you gotta readership you. Dad Sends you embed one never send you shit? I'm like it's it's not that series. I still have a newspaper on my bed from my first night. In Quarantine of an article my dad gave me to read. It's Has EVEN FALLEN BEDS. Still just sitting on the golden ride just with an estimate. It's been Dumont's now I'll get eventually but yeah I and he sends me Mandarin Chinese articles. I haven't read Chinese since I was thirteen. I don't can't read that Shit. Hollywood superstar dude. I don't do this shit anymore. Man Yes senator. My sister by the way we talk about the Yellow Panthers. Does this real do. That's a real ban. That's a real you know here. Can I play you guys? A Yellow Panther saw. Yes yes Jerry. Nothing to do. I'll say as long as you want so yellow. Panthers is you a black guy and a mixed guy and a Buddy Julian who was black and then my buddy Yuji who was half black and half Japanese so as I said to my stand up one and a half Asian guys one and a half black guys and this was a hip hop group. We had in high school. I made the beats and wrapped and everything and Yeah it was called the Yellow Panthers. Sure that's not very p c these days say that's not a name that flies today but you know in hindsight where kids are these songs out there or is this just like on your computer. It's on my computer. I actually thought about making the Song Altro Credit Song for my special yet on spotify. Yes yet true. Maybe I should Honda thought about that. I don't know how the music industry works for young people these days. It's all spotify here. My songs aren't going to send him a snail with like a one of those mini discs. Okay here's the saw. Let me see my plants if you guys can hear it so this call. This song is Yellow Panthers. Good Day in the West Coast main in about two thousand four five. I believe Do can you not hear that?

Parents are immigrants but never taught me anything about the came here what age thirteen from thirteen and how much English did you speak. Not Really. I learn English. How kids will learn Spanish in school and I don't even know what like what's is up man because that's American slang I knew what what man up meant then though what what's up man so it was kind of a struggle and I found love line when I was about fifteen I got like three years of you struggling with English in high school junior high school or high school junior high when I must've been hot stuff all over me man yeah yeah yeah yeah they call me Jimmy Thick Cock back in the day but not really didn't discover it until in my late twenties so okay so we're gonNA bring you here? You bring it dude. Bring it now but when I found love line I was like really cool in liberating because in a Chinese family we're only talk about that kind of stuff.

I didn't know you're such a fan of the show man so I'm just saying catch a little bits of it yeah at least that last season <hes> that last season was because I had a I had a web company in the eighty in the excuse me the end of the nineties and I went through one of those cycles we raise capital and ill yeah and that last season caught everything about you know running a company from nothing about nothing. You know what I mean. What was your Tech Company? What would you call Dr Drew Dot Com? He was during the DOT com craze raise money in San Jose in nobody had websites upsides and we did it. We did something like this exactly like this except nobody could see it because nobody had broadband which need it in order to see this so we were way ahead of ourselves so you a streaming back then no well yes streaming broadband right Oh my God and essentially put it up as a as a video video that people could watch and download. Nobody can watch it. They didn't have enough speed. Wow isn't that funny and so we had one hundred hundred employees employed. Lets people for a good ear and everybody went bankrupt completely so it's an entire cycle of a business but all the stuff all the stuff that you went through in that last season of Silicon Valley there was all stuff that was very familiar to me except for that that bitcoin thing they did L. Right right. I'm sure there's a similar version of bitcoin back in the day. Whatever that is how maybe no the fact I we had people are working with us at invented pay pal? We'd just all happened right then. All this stuff was how we didn't know what was going on but anyway so you grew up in in China Your Dad. What was Your Dad's job he was he was a businessman he Seoul medical devices for a long time and then that that didn't go so well so when I was a baby when I was like before I was five we're like pretty well off and and then after that it was just kind of all not downhill but they were living off their savings and he came here and became a financial adviser and then he saw get this camera on me then he saw Jimmy Success at an actor and he said behind Your Dad's voice? What did he say is that it's so easy you can voice? You can't do it anymore so easy you can do it. I could probably do it so he came back to me. He started acting and now he's a huge star in China. Am I right. It was the craziest a huge star in China. It's ridiculous because what happened was I was like Oh you don't appreciate how many auditions out to go to and how hard this job actually is an all the plus sweat and tears I put on stage and acting classes like fine. I'm going to call Palma agent and see if she wants to sign you and turns out how old Asian dudes like hot commodity right so they signed him and he booked his first five out of six auditions. Wow it was crazy. Oh play backfired on this and he was like Oh yeah it is easy. I was like fuck you you know and he got on this show. It was like a non union show the Schon San Francisco but it was a Chinese show and it turned out to be the biggest. It was like modern family of China. Oh why it's called little daddy and like play like his daddy no no he played like three episode arc as a Chinese gangster really cool arc right and my aunt saw in China and literally called our house here and was like Richard. You're such yeah good actor like your son must've taken after you <hes> terrible if the story of her yeah well. You've continued to move on to that yeah. You've stuff coming up. Can you talk about it. Yeah well Silicon Valley. We're GONNA shoot the new season. That's very exciting. I'M GONNA do a stand up special soon so I've been running around towns in a lot of the comedy store your name Alastair yesterday yeah. That's what I thought I saw. It was really fun. I wasn't going to get back to it because I think back in the day I was doing stand up to try to get girls to not be depressed stuff like that that the reason it was my way to socialize not just meet girls but like make friends because I was like still show like how did you arrive at comedy. It's quite a sort of reach to think though that's what I'll do to meet people in a bar I it's a lot of people I think got great stories. It's like oh I grew up watching Eddie Murphy my brother and I promised him I'd be a comedian. You know I didn't have any of that. It was honesty the last-ditch desperation it was like I always say googling like type into Google local open mics is one step away from type them. What's what's the best way to kill yourself like not to get like super dark here but the thing that's what a lot of comedians motivations are so I was just I would just start? You know tourists like my junior year of college. I wasn't making front redraws go to College U._C._S._D.. Okay so somewhere out. Sagging Baggio living with my dad liked doing nothing playing madden my old high school friends not meeting any girls you know I'm just stuck and I'm like we thought of comedy. I really idea I. I used to watch B._T.. Rap City and comic view when I came to America so I thought that was really interesting as go try it. I never had stage fear. I was pretty good. Did you work hard to work with you. I I wrote some stuff but I was like hacky masturbation jokes. You know like just like every comic. I think one of my first job was so I was watching Sports Center on E._S._p._N.. And a Michael Vick highlight and jerking off to my computer on the other screen and you know and then I was about to calm and that turn around Michael Vick scored a touchdown so I kind of came to. Michael Vick you know it was like really dumb masturbation jokes but it got some like pity chuckles and the great part about that was immediately the other open mic comics like Oh that was cool man. What's your name you know like? Do you come here. Often like it'd be camaraderie. It was at the Comedy Club how Comedy Club in North Hollywood I pay five dollars for five minutes to states and then we're like tagging each other's jokes but like I found a community so I just I started going there every day to open my every day yeah because I made I was making friends for summer. You weren't doing anything yeah yeah. There was like when I was twenty twenty one yeah so every day Mike and did you. Did you work every day what you're going to say or you just repeat stuff or Yeah I. I don't think I understood the process. Like how much errors do you now I do now. I think back in the day it's more just trying to survive on stage for five minutes so he can go hang out the bar for another two hours but mainly camaraderie and I kind of saw way out. I'm like get really good at this. I can get on their Friday night. Book shows and actually you don't make some money and like meet girls and get laid you know and I'll be girls get laid is in the in the the alchemy every time every <music> everything anyone does in life. I certainly as a young man yeah I came to this podcast because I'm hoping to meet girls and get at some point. Would you guys help our this just dudes in here. So how do the transition to acting go <hes>. I didn't think I was going to be an actor. I was hoping to just do some acting commercial acting so I can pay the bills because I wasn't making any money I heard great stories of Comedians like being an extra on a commercial oh and then it got paid sixty grand because he they got bumped up and other residuals and stuff. Wow and I didn't really know what acting is about like obviously I get it. I seen it but I don't know how to do it. So I found an agent hoping to just get some commercial work so I use my stand up clip as like my real and then the agent kind of just start sending out on random auditions like modern family two lines on modern family you know <hes> this game show host and everything and those things were so far fetched and Cool Oh for me. I was like dude. I need to work really hard. This is an opportunity that I didn't even think I was going to get uh-huh so I started using all my money for acting classes like my rent was like three hundred bucks I lived in this living room but we're where my in Hollywood and that's that's a whole nother lifetime in story more because I know money I used to work at a strip club in San Diego. I finished that told me more wouldn't what happened there. You didn't know this I it's bigly remember the Strip club as a D._J.. And it got too dangerous and the guy loved me this gangster. Give give us your your APP. Oh Yeah it was. It was always just like two people in the Strip. I was really sad strip club so it's like high pressure sales. Okay you're going to be P._T._S._D..

Literally like Eighteenth Street Latina Tattoos on their stomachs and Shit Gang Shit scars wounds yeah this one girl was named Latina 'cause she was Latina good and she had like AK eight forty seven bandelier like that and so there's a lot of grungy stuff like that and then there's this girl page was really beautiful and she was like nineteen twenty and I was like twenty two at the time I was like he from San Diego Yeah Page and I thought I was like Oh my God you know <hes> only if I can get her as my girlfriend start chatting with her and such a huge crush I talked owner.

Oh no Monica's fucking whore or buried we are like yeah whatever so oh I was talking to owner reconnaissance type exactly so assigned owner just and he's like the sixty year old gangster and then I was like hey so pages awesome <hes> let's think pages like so cute and he was like she's a pathological liar. Don't listen to anything and she says what no come on. How would you know that you don't you don't know her that well and he was like I know I fucked there? Okay and my innocence just kind of just like a balloon deflating yeah yeah and it got like really dangerous offers to after a while so there was cocaine deals or something that you told us some stuff like that <hes> it was like prostitution. It was super happy ready. Dad was very know until we're my book and he was like crying afterwards. He's like Oh man if I knew you Blah Blah so that was a nice moment 'cause I if he knew I would have never been able to work there. He would've dragged me out right and you wouldn't be able to pursue page. Yeah I know well the failure of a person hello are you there.

Some somebody's talks breaking bad. It is go find somebody to run his run his stuff for them yeah so and then I moved to L._A.. And became an actor but no no no then you ended up in somebody's living room. Oh well I use like the two thousand dollars savings I had and then urban this kid's name <hes> Nathan's living room but you can only call nate Daniel. You can't call him. Nathan Daniel Daniel Daniel Nathaniel Daniels the small black guys small Emmy and he's Super Gay <hes> <hes> and it was fine. I'm cool with gave me was that I was living room and <hes> until one night he brought like five gay Latino Dude over and like I thought off I was just going to have an orgy in his his room or whatever I don't know and apparently only one of them is with him and like four of them crashed in the living room where I am. I don't know what the fuck happened that night. Okay like I just on my back against the wall and I'm the headphones on but this one guy just kept saying hey pablo so your power bottom <hes> that's that's all I know and I woke up the next morning.

It was around Easter time. Yes yes very festive. It's true <hes> or computers about me probably gave him well. I think Dr drew to welcome more on. I always give them a left the air I'm not happy I'm not through the school got rain. Okay very intelligent gets very very close to my brain took appear to the God <unk> chicken head curdled. You might be hurdles standards of the virus. Hey it occurred laverick Colonel Sanders Lane. I think he said you look colonel. Sanders with the virus I thought Colonel Sanders with. Elvira that's what I said that for across of Colonel Sanders and then he said Colonel Sanders with the virus coffee that makes sense but it's like. It's like Homey on out. It's like a home right now. We don't know can you say. Can you say it's it's you have a personal personal video from I one of them. I've arrived. I'm here you have oh my God. It's really quite a moment. Thank you for joining appreciate it with me. I Love I love Robert Paul Ch- he's great he's really a sweet guy is and that kind of comes through a little bit here. You say he's like a little her. He's like he's. He's happy he's having he was. I think he's on math when he was you know maybe he was very aggressive. fucked me Piss on beat me. Try it out man even when he's tried out man Jimmy you watch that video too many many times man. I almost tried it out. Man Really didn't know you know what my question always drew. I worked strippers. A one hundred percent of strippers like somebody like Piss Piss on meet me are they all one hundred percent abused or this some outlier outliers and it's just it's just what what makes you not perceive normal boundaries. That's what happens to you that your boundaries are sort of fluid right what happened. You always say this which I love what happened to you that make this okay right. Yeah I watch porn. I can't think that I'm like what what happened to her. I can't go to strip. This DP is okay right now. I can't go to a strip club because I just think about it. Just think about these women and I it's not my business. They WanNa do what they liked doing it. It's not like they don't like it. It's just it's sort of it's they're stuck in a loop of trauma kind of things. Are there ever strippers like maybe they're in a bad choice in the money for their family like. Is that a real story but but there's lots of people desperate that don't do that now. Maybe they aren't attractive enough to do it. I suppose suppose but the other people will will go to other desperate measures than that is a reason you feel fine doing that and it's okay listen peace and love peace and love no problem nothing wrong with it. <hes> what are other desperate measures like rob. I mean we're taking a job. You don't WanNa take doc or borrowing money from people living living room with Nathan Nathan Annual Yeah I would've strip though if I was a female you would've yeah I mean I'm not hot enough as it dude so what happened to you but the thing is like I'm a dude. Did you have trauma grownup. I don't think south than trouble getting here. I think trauma of getting here and it's years of repression as my trauma I don't that doesn't count as trump. Was it repressive in in China no but I mean I just jerked off from like the age of thirteen to twenty and normal. Thank God it's years of just frustration 'cause abnormal. Oh my gosh so none of that is abnormal. You know your continued preoccupation. I'm just saying I mean me work in a strip club. Maybe I was traumatized. I I know you said you get P._T._S._D.. Just from talk tell the story I don I was I was doing hyperbole okay but you're never talked about your mom with three deal. Well here's my trauma. This is my trauma. I talked about this drew okay so when I was fifteen so my family all came here when I was thirteen that's right during my mom was the one that kind of didn't quite assimilate because she couldn't speak English very well so she went from like running a fashion line in Hong Kong to like doing minimum wage crappy jobs in like Chinese areas so when I was fifteen she got up and moved back to China just left you guys kind of basically in the divorce so I had a ton of resentment from that now looking back I understand I understand too but it was traumatic yet is and and it's got a not be normal <unk> own for a woman especially for kids to get up and leave their kids very unusual. It speaks to how desperately unhappy she was right does she try to bring you with her. No I mean they came here for my schooling me and my brother schooling so rather older older and then she made no attempt no she actually is man. I remember this. I mean my memory could be wrong but I remember I was like crying. She was like <hes> if you don't want me to go I don't have to go. I was like mom. I don't want you to go and then she left. That's trauma explains of your interest in strippers. Got It right <hes> yeah no but what does it. How does that translate to me work in a strip club or page? The page makes sense to me the unavailable and even if available would be more than a handful and would leave and working strip club. Is You rebellious. You Bet your super rebellious for for Chinese kid from talk alcohol. Do my mom or that just my answer. No you were pissed. You left you fifteen hundred seven now. You're seventy eight thousand nineteen right. She'll maybe I've like anger towards women. Maybe I'm not sure I know I'm not going to say that. I'm just going to say that you were you were angry because you've been abandoned her mom in general and you're rebelling and stuff and thus the wild night in the Daniels Living Room Nathan so the sand ah but it makes sense that you you kind of drove you. It's interesting you kind of made you do stuff that you would probably otherwise done. I don't think yeah my mom never left very happy Asian family and probably financial advisor the wealthy and the interesting thing for for this show had comedy figure into that you know what I mean is there is there is that an angry heart of that rebellious part of that part of rebellion part of that <hes> desperation because I just couldn't find happiness back home anymore right near here nor there yeah because because back home but you also couldn't go back to Hong Kong either because no I needed to fit in. I never thought that I fit in America but he's kind of using a mallet to fit in right well comedy. The good thing about comedy is Weirdos the Weirdo you are. It's it's how misfits fit in the Weirdo yard of funnier. Your everybody in the comedy club was a misfit so you feel like you fit in with those people defined your creed. That's how and fresh stoler man that's how me and my roommate Terrell Guam at. You know like everybody didn't fit in. That's why we all do stand up Fred. What's come in at the end of this podcast and give you a gift or me a gift to for a few minutes but speaking misfits let's go to let's go to my misfits cool? Let's go to let's get to a voice mail here right off the top and see what they've got for US shall we you and I am a mother of two and <hes> during both of my pregnancies I have something really unfortunate occurs <hes> during any course with my husband we of course took the opportunity of meeting permits to let him finish without having just out. She says it'll probably ah who won the best thing about being pregnant and for some reason my body went from being crispy fine with his thing and touching my skin to completely having an allergic reaction whoa which felt like a burning searing singing pains so bad that I would be in tears in having to put a wet wash costs like a cold compress a myself right neither perfect sense and let him do that more than one each pregnancy occur so my question to you is why that occurs because when I did ask my doctor basically said it's not unheard of but they didn't have an understanding of why of the many many hundreds of times that caller voice message participants have said to me on having logic reaction to my boyfriend's semen I would say zero of them. Zero have been allergic reaction. The vast vast majority is the effects of progesterone astrum which the birth control pills that they make these days are high potency project arounds so women on birth control pills can get something very similar to what she described. When you're pregnant you have a placenta creating shit tons of progesterone so you can get a relative deficiency? See down in your vaginal lining. It can get very irritated easy and seeing little really stir that up next time should to get pregnant again or get that experience again. Talk to your doctor about some estrogen suppositories now because you were pregnant. They may not have allowed that but <hes> that's what this is is the same thing when you pregnant go anal listen to uncle Jimmy uncle Jimmy come in the ass. Can we make a t-shirt.

I don't want to I mean but sometimes but sometimes hot and it's one of her better scenes. I get you feel you're so you end up here with the situation. It's the check against exactly my girlfriend. I've been dating for a few months. We've quickly become best friends mesh on so many levels all sex life good. The only thing is that we kiss you. Use Your tongue or allow me to. I've asked her why of course can't get a definitive answer even pressed her to ask whether there's any pass Trona. Some people aren't into tongue kissing. I guess I've had that with girls Kinda shy but don't know some people are just not into it. They just for whatever just like Samuel Get weirded out by certain words get weirded out by certain sounds. Some people are not into tongue kissing hard to imagine yeah but there you go turn on the voice message. Hey Doc Andrew. This is <hes> laying from Florida. <hes> I had a pretty concerning question. My son was born in November this series about six months and ever since then my wife can't get enough room and that's not necessarily the problem is that ah she'll she'll sniffers fee smelling vinegar pickles which is fine but I noticed when I was looking should like liquors toes like the jam in between she would smell as far as I'm just wondering if it's normal the wife should we should we help you can hear in the background but please Cleveland No shock shock ely. I believe her in that him shockingly. What did she say in the background not true but I thought he was going to say we have no more sex which is really common at the baby's born? How old's the baby six months and she's just smelling the toes? He's being not a could husband. Yeah like what's the big deal but a good mommy yeah he's calling it but mostly the sex shut down because God doesn't want you to babies on top of each other so women for at least a year after the after baby will be way down veto if they're breastfeeding it keeps it keeps that dough low libido going even further now you've always said through that a woman's vagina goes back to exact normalcy normalcy but but near normalcy what I've said was when people people will say things like she got stretched out ago that anatomy was designed to handle the head of a baby and go back to normal things don't stretch out from Male Genitalia. They don't come on. They don't really really it's meant for a head of baby that will stretch it out. What do porn like that kind of strike six penises or something yeah or if you fisting that will stretch you out yes but I mean some of these penises in porn is practically my fist? I I'm not gonNA hurt the vagina. It's going to hurt the uterus if it gets up there you know can traumatize stuff so course hurts more than length is what you're saying. No there's no penis wide enough. No I'm just stretching out perm out. I mean maybe but I don't know what you've watched Germany. Maybe man you know I find that to be hard to believe but you're the doctor it's not nuts. Maybe not like a fourteen year old but not like postpartum that day. We don't know comparison. Okay the voice message. Please see we got there well. I'm on. I have a condition known epidemic biased. I'm sure you can explain that who listeners <hes> you sound so happy about it right now. Okay identified as we need. We need to have anatomy charts here. Since this is a youtube then we bring some we need like those those charts doctor put on their walls or the skeletons that have in doctor's offices yeah ah I always thought those decoration. I've never seen one doctor used the skeleton thing with the stomachs and lungs pulled out. No you mean like the big body sitting there decoration they'd use it. I pull out little models of knees and shoulders and stuff like that once in a while I I do but this is you got your testy right my testy. You've got a little thing that sits on top called the epidemic. It's sort of the processing center for the sperm before they send it up the vast deference to be put with the Semen O.. K. and EPIDERMIS can get inflamed really easily <hes> usually they re three gets playing then it goes down to the testes inflamed but the epidemic ooh there it is yeah that's yeah but then on top there you see when chuck it too much you get almost right and you can get from prostate inflammation. You can get it from your wreath rightous. You can get it from Committeea gift from gonorrhea you get all kinds of stuff and just it just happens in so treatment is like antibiotics and supporting your testees like wearing underwear all the time and <hes> Oh really and <hes> some commandos no good no good for the type of MIDAS or prostate is in then anti-inflammatories but let's see what else he wants to know the same thing and he told me <hes> my dad has the same thing and he told me that if I shoot ropes and should stop hurting so I was just wondering at all those guys awesome the asked his dad that my bosses playing claim what I do and that is that it's like Sun. It's okay minus two how does that. I will never ask them about that that he might is too. Did you hear the advice. He gave him a shoe Bro. Does that mean come yes after he'd come. You Go pee. That's he wanted the next conversation you have with your dad. Please videotape if father and son jerk off. Oh my God so your dad does not know what the F.. He's talking about just saying but that's what you get ask your dad and not whoever the doctors diagnosed epitomizes. That's what the tell women. After you have sex you go pee. Is that real it's to help reduce the risk of urinary tract in fact that's real kind of works but not have to shoot rope. Would you penis you. Don't go p how hard art is that by the way my very often trying to pee I would argue that might make things worse. Even my favorite thing about this podcast today is that we taught you. The term shoot ropes Jimmy. Oh Yeah something new a twenty twenty two year old cool guy which you never know what that could mean sometimes what I've sex or masturbate in my shack might sack will shrivel and my balls won't fit side by side in my what is he talking about as a result a ball will react retract attract into my lower abdomen okay yeah. There's a slight bulge under my skin right into rub. Yes that happens all the time that is normal normally could actually go up into your abdomen. If you have really yeah he's twenty two. You don't know I didn't know like your left. Nut supposed to be hanging lower and you're right until tossing funds is usually just one one is lower than the other well. It's not always and but you can but this thing of this retracting the ball sort of pulling up into the inguinal area very very calm and a slight curve and you peanuts. It's normal right. You're asking asking for a friend how slight pretty slight you know with with your finger. I mean I mean like like like such. Let me say that. I'm a but like way bigger like that like way.

This is what we're talking about. Ish It's not it's not a knuckle bent. I understand it's a smooth curve. It's a smooth curve. Your smooth dude so he's been there hasn't been there all the time I don't know but ever since since I was young yeah I it was when I was thirteen. I don't know there's been hasn't progressed anyway. No now I thought it was because I only jerk on my left hand I mean and then I switched and then it got stranger. Who May maybe uh-huh once again? This is not about me. Where am I wear for? This dude is he's a genius but is that real faking yes. It's a real thing curves can be caused by lots of things and trauma is one of them. Don't don't be so aggressive with your deny and let's and the the real risk is that it gets them called Piranhas disease working just keep pulling can operate is fine but <hes> the I was talking to urologists today was saying that sometimes baroni he's like happens overnight. They wake up and they've got oh wow so I was in a very serious four year relationship early twenties extremely loyal until I was cheated on and I feel like it took a toll on me mentally because ever since I've cheated on every girlfriend right uh-huh just started a new relationship at five months ago really WanNa work it out but I'm actually trying to change my perspective but I sometimes feel myself starting to slip so far. I've been able to keep it at bay. <hes> love the show. I was reluctant to ask the question but since listening to you I feel like I've already started reflect internally more and face. Oh my other problems. Maybe the other problems the things we should be talking about but <hes> here's what I think does a lot of that but he's describing is that it's impossible that that experience shattered attard your sense of feeling safe in a relationship and if you can't regain that feeling of safety again by any means one means is to go oh I've always I've always got a bullpen right right. You can always jump out out yet so by by keeping that sort of cheating option open you cheat yourself because you never actually get into the relationship. You're always partly with one foot out now. I understand why it really traumatized you and maybe some of these other issues issues. You say that's trauma right like it is but you have to face some of your other issues. I'm wondering those other issues are why this was so traumatic for you. You can't seem to get out of this pattern but that's gotta be traumatic for everyone that you can't trust again or do people rebound from that people. Usually she rebound from that but that's the reason it's hard it's hard trusting. Trust is almost a bigger topic again. If you had childhood trauma trust is a major major issue always <hes> any type of trout right yeah trust becomes the issue but usually those are people that really have trouble getting in a relationship ever <hes> and so they don't but again they might be something in that zone should he do. He should not try to really get into the relationship for real not keep an option of you know of a door open where he can bail out anytime and if you can't can't do that then what other these other problems you're mentioning need to see somebody about those because that's the issue. Oh this is for you Jimmy. Hey obviously cannibalism is frowned upon but if you're trapped in a desert in the woods somewhere with no food but another delicious looking human being what's the easiest safe safe as part of the humid heat pushing. I've never thought of but I'm glad you're here to help me. Wow Yeah I mean you gotta think like like on a on a cow like the rib eye that tried tip some somewhere along ribs got to be the most delicious parts delicious delicious a safe easiest and safest. I like the way you went right for delicious Jimmy but go ahead and safest I mean the arm arm or by the limbs have no diseases. The FIS pry have like she arteries and stuff now. You're good okay good <hes> but I like the way you just going for ten or meet all the time. Here's another for Jimmy twenty-three-year-old I've blood in my semen you ever had that ooh never outweigh. No never it's only a little bit but enough to turn a very slight shade pink. I figured it was worth asking about. It's only happened twice and she days hurt using well. It can sting a little bit coming out if it's a lot to put it lightly. There's almost zero percent chance I haven't S._T._D.. Okay guess he's Virgin. I can't think of any trauma injured dude happens what the hell's happening. These are usually a little vessel that leaks in like in the several vesicles or something like that. It's very common there. No it's not it's just it's very common. It's in the same it's actually in the pack where the same as getting worked worked on the factory. Oh my God the Front office twenty six year old male. I've been a deck addicted Internet porn for ten years. You send this to me a little lucas. What what is addicted to Internet porn mean to you? You know it's interesting because it's it's so normative and some people use a lot of it and they're still not addicted. It's like any like alcohol like so. There are people that drink a lot of alcohol. They're not alcoholic right. It's got like like you said it's got affect life. It's kind of your relationship worker school finance health relation wait health now so even like hypothetical even if I jerk off only once a week but then this this guy say let no no this is actually a hypothetical say a personally once a week flood. She's a split he can have sex with his girlfriend because his perception reality right options Smith Right. I would say he even though right frequency you. I'm not sure I would call him addicted because he's not lost control over it but I would say he's having consequences. Any should get shouldn't change his behavior and if you can't then we'd have to look at that right so addictions when you try to change your behavior because it's having inconsequential and you cannot now for me. What if I like I've done this? I think we have done this. It's like you wake up and then you do like a little wakened jerk and then you get tired for the rest of the day. You have ton of plans to don't do that but then you know you end up not doing stuff right right. Is that consequences. Oh if you can't stop and you want to stop sometimes. It's like Oh Maga's such big day ahead of me. I gotta come to Dr Drew's podcast. I think you know and then you today so I can tell you didn't you didn't load any cheese or sometimes. Sometimes you wake up early enough jerk and then go back to sleep. That's the way to do it. It's like an immediate morning that well. That's okay after watching your show is identified to long-term female friends as my stalking victims ooh this. Is this the porn guy. This is good way read that again. He had he identified in other words. They're all these guys out there right around this age twenty six that find these women they they because of porn they don't have the usual dating eating experience the tie dye the Tigers gone out there and that's painful and difficult uncomfortable and these days people are encouraged to date so they don't learn how to do that. They find someone there about twenty three twenty thirty two twenty three twenty four they go this is the one and then they go on a date and she's not that into it and he goes okay. I'm her friend now. I'M GONNA BE WAXING or cars. It'd be cleaner carpet. Why do people do that? They do that in hopes one day she'll slip slip up and like a do it with intention that by being that guy long enough eventually she'll cave in eventually. She'll they honestly don't understand how the friend zone were correct. She's actually lease less likely to fuck you Harare and so that guy is stalking her stalking behavior is that stocking that's full on stalking behavior so both girls knew I had feelings for them and enjoy the attention they receiving which made me feel that I could win them here. It is which led us to having an eight to nine year friendships oops throughout the time. I was friends with them. I dated ahead relationships. It wasn't like I follow them around all day. I know that it's still you're in you're in the made clear what the relationship is. You're refusing to accept that you're pushing now if you could actually maintain a friendship but he's he's not pushing as listening to you. I told both them I could no longer be friends due to my affection toward them. After explaining how unhealthy behavior was they were unhappy but understood and the younger the two actually apologized to me. WHOA that's good? That's enlightened. We'll ever be friends with the woman that I find attractive. Yes you will your you will. That's a good question. I question that sometime of course you can. I mean I could if I really really make an effort or if I'm already in but to say that you will not be attracted to hurt is naive right right but you can put that aside and just be a friend. You can do that now. Steve Harder when you're younger. Steve Harvey had this theory. It was like a viral youtube video years ago. He was like a man can can never be friends with a woman because he was women. Let me ask you this if you got these friends hang around. If you decide to fuck them they will jump on it right. Yes this guy yeah yeah but I mean does that. Mean you can be friends with them. No it means the friendship sort of ends or changes right at that point right but she doesn't mean because she knows they know they're. You're attracted and because you're attracted. There's always that potential but in the meantime you can be an adult of your friend. It's possible but what what can't happen is <hes> when friends develop you have to acknowledge that somebody was usually attracted to somebody the ant true. It's usually brings it together in the first place right right and then you can be friends. It's okay but you cannot stock. You cannot stock like that. The affair is that stocking at so friend. Zone is like baby steps into stocking yeah if you start if you continue to pie in a way for them and feel you can win them by wearing them down. Oh that is so sad how many times you've done that as desperate as I was. I've never done that so because all the time now really all the time. It's very very common. We have nowhere voice messages before we went Fred in here. I Dr Drew My name's Max. I'm from Colorado. I guess one of the start out by saying I I love your show. My question or concern is <hes>. I've been with <hes> <hes> girlfriend for about four months now. Everything's going great. I noticed when we started to be a little bit more sexual active here recently <hes>. Maybe a little bit more intense in the bedroom. I should say <hes> she'll <hes> out Jesus quarter and <hes> I mean I personally don't have any problem with that myself. I think it's Kinda hot but <hes> I still have the the argument that <hes> it's P. and <hes> I mean if it's if it's not even like what what the fuck is a key off and on well mommy you have this question to yeah yeah yeah so you answer it. I I don't know okay remember if it can be it can be urine. It can be in fact probably the majority of the time it is but really but but there is there are women that actually put out vaginal secretions in in sequential <hes> bursts and so it's a different kind of fluid colors. I remember in Loveland. Somebody called in Green College. We'll whitish grey that kind of stuff but the urine is I mean one what take you can find out really easily. He had to take vitamins before you have sex evacuate her bladder until we see the yellow and make sure the bladders empty and then do your thing and see what you get. How does vitamins factor yellow vitamin beat it will turn yellow multivitamin that might turn yellow? Let's bring Fred. Fred Stolle has has a gift for us. Oh by the way what should I do with my trauma drew about the Obama stuff yeah. I think you're doing okay with it. Don't you I all right. I think we're worried about your picker. You'll pick people that will be sort of on all the time still okay so if you WanNa fix that then you've got to see a therapist but I think you're going to be careful and know that if you see lightning bolts yeah be careful thing think butterflies not lightning bolts right you always we saw that okay.

If five six fusions for people with recurrent depressions extremely effective extremely effective so good for you for looking at doing and doing it and I don't know how to explain to Jimmy like what is the infusing with Ketamine and he does the treatments. He hasn't after a couple of our start simply it just it just changes the brain chemistry in a positive way no it's it's people that have depression that have not responded to other things or they're having side effects.

And the author of we promised you would great main event Ville. Han Stock. With Gina, Grad on news spoiled Brian on sound effects and chip's area with the sports and now. Life Coach who flies coach. Adam Corolla? No true words were ever spoken. Get it on got to get on a judge Goodman to. Get it on. Thanks for tuning in and thanks for sharing the show with someone you love right. Gina Grant. That's right. Brian. PODCAST for yelling. Well. If you guys WANNA. Know the time line. Will play I'll play something it'll be good timing. Yeah. We're doing a podcast then Mike August and I are going to hop on a plane and I think we're flying Oakland and then from Oakland were driving to where ninety minutes away Fresno start off and then we're going to stockton. And then I'm GonNa do a show, and then we're going to go back to Oakland. Then we're going to get back on a southwest flight and then we're GONNA come back to lax and not Burbank because somehow they cancelled that flight. So do you constantly feel the urge to Brag about your life? We get it. You're traveling man who la La I get to go to Stockton on. South? West. I know me up for the courtyard Marya getting a rental car. Yeah I know it's weird. But at the Simultaneously Today a Paul Newman's thirteenth race car that I purchased is being dropped off at the other shop from Florida. Poor man's. Way An interesting thing i. just my feeling is I like things I like expensive things. I'd like to do things but when it comes to travel or accommodations or a West airports or lines, I'm just a dude trying to save a buck trying to get from one point to the next and I gotTA. Tell you Mike August is an he's an enabler because Mike August is literally made of leather and filled with sand like Mike's thing it'd be Mike. 'cause a lot of the person you travel with. Mike, thing is like. When we just do a show in Fresno what this will leave L. A. At. You know. Four in the afternoon and then. Two in the afternoon, and then we'll do a couple of shows in Fresno and then we'll just drive home that night we'll get. We'll get back by seven am. That's like how Mike Works and so then. I would then become the the Prima Donna and this group of going I kinda WANNA fly South West five times a day in. Southwest he's just that dude he'll eat anywhere. He'll travel anywhere. He'll stay anywhere. He'll fly in anything and so if you're gonNA travel with Mike August, you go the cheapest flight. Yes. Right. Dogs like my buddy buddies like to. Sunday afternoon we can be Vegas and back ripe by class Monday morning that's how that's how micro also. Now, the flying thing reminded me something because I was having difficulty closing my eyes on these flights and I realize I need sleep music I want sleep music. So I said to Dawson you have the song so I said to Matt Is Matt fondle Lear. A year ago I. Just I. had on my phone and I said just download sleep music, right? Just download sleep music I want the whatever that means classical sleep music the greatest I want fucking cabbage on demand. So. This is the song. Now, what is the decibel what you got it on as far as the volume goes gossip. Breaks Benji back around yeah. Not. The train never stopped the volume kranj right now to plus five. Plus Five. Here to conduct this experiment. Don't ever touch. Don't ever touch the pretend geometry. No, no mark but so I'm laying there. And I'm going. Okay Trying to sleep. Mike's Eating. As it should be also Mike has no reverence at all for the mask. So he gives you Agena because he's always wearing it around his fucking waste, and so people are always walking like, Sir Sir. Sir. You know when the person next to you is never following the rules is to have this James Sticks and he'd smoke everywhere you been that. I get that with what I'm saving a spot in line or somewhere in the person's is off doing God, knows what I'm like you should be here please be here. Famous bonding longer right. Dixon all always light up a cigarette like in a courtyard of a commercial building and I will see the guard walking from adamant he won't care and I'M Going to. Have Not touched volume right. Haven't touched. What is the title of this playland? This play title is called classical sleep. It's the description is common sense suggests and medical studies. Confirm classical music is one of the simplest Fred's troubled sleep whether you can't seem to settle that brain or just once in companies drift off on yellow swell this way list will guide you gently towards those del delays. Dawson's not touching anything. Now, I'm now starting to toss and turn my South West ride on Mike. Is. Going on with the volume. I didn't touch anything there's no. Heat anything I might be. At the beginning I couldn't hear him. So kept turning it up like as playing. How many seconds are we into this four minutes? Or two minutes and thirty seconds to it. How? How could anyone now the beginning? You can't. Here and so you have to keep a writing ball young. I'm just gonNA JUST GONNA. Sit. Back. For Twenty one seconds. Volume doing talk. This is called the all human beings by Max. Richter. Out just for fun. jumped. Thirty. On. So Powder or gets louder. ooh. ooh. Now instead sleeping. CARE. Agitated in this this is sleep. All right. Things you want from sleep music as wildly varying volume levels. Yes. The well, the if go to the very beginning of the Song dos and then you just sort of. Where do you play your music at on this show three or five or I'm usually well minus five DB usually. Are you at minus minus five right now that's minus five. Okay. So here's where it starts. Give Tinnitus. Yeah Yeah I'm like. The beginning is confusion like am I on a song? I add volume on my phone is up to seven or middle. I'm at mid level I'm staring at my phone I'm going I'm not. And then of course, it goes to. Symbols clasping together and you know the twenty one gun salute at the how how would want this is the first offering. In, the sleep in their sleep PAG opening salvo, this is your first offer this the one you hit as you're trying to go to bed and so you close your eyes. You know like, I. Don't think I can hear anything. So you turn it up. So. Now you turn it way up and then of course, goes into what you heard so. Nine. This is why I. Don't you guys wonder what we're doing human beings sometimes like? Somebody compiled a set list and mission statement was. We want people to be able to relax INN does off maybe they're on an airplane maybe they're just in their car waiting for their kids soccer practice, but they won't be able to close their eyes and the number one song you come up with is. Recognizable in the first half and then. Blood squirting out of the eardrums in the second half. Is there a bigger mission unaccomplished than that? It neither are relaxing and Dawson I. Don't think we want to go there without him devices but isn't there volume leveling unlike a lot of the apple products or can't this be isn't this easily addressed by someone somebody? I evidently can't easily address anything because. You think the Version putting this together would probably figure that out. It's for sleeping for they do have that that kind of stuff Bryan but with such drastic changes like this, this isn't really common and a lot of music like pop music is. Just to stick way I'll jazz. Just, just the volume song. Ping Wild. So Adam for the first two minutes is at the left side of this graph here, and then that's how much louder it gets. How he goes. It goes from flatlined to GRANDPA's had a massive heart attack on an ekg and then back to he's now with grandma. That's what this thing looks like it was. Line with a huge explosion of sound in it, and now he's resting with Nanna. Rose test, the actual picture picture, Stingray, long tail, and really gets Y. Matt. Just walked in Matt I just said to Matt just load me up some sleep music so I can relax on the airplane right couldn't get couldn't get one song I'm so sorry well, it's not your fault you downloaded classical sleep, right? Yeah exactly. But how can it go any other way? But seems to be there is a every of quiet classical songs out there to choose from. How did we end up with this one at the batting leadoff in the sleep department if it was nine songs in I, mean the thing is like eighteen songs. It was song number thirteen. I could've fallen asleep and then in annoyed. All? Right. But so speaking of technology I can I just tell you what you have to stick with the tried and true don't go searching for new music go. She won't fail you. She's been doing this for thirty years just go within. Yeah. I know you gotTa dance with WHO's Enya? I. Note that means I was. I was doing Tucker Carlson last week I. It's always a little dubious with me and technology in the phone and. I was just GonNa skype in and I said, all right I'll. skype myself in and I was doing a hit on his show and I was doing it on my phone and the way it looks on the phone is you see? A picture of you and I think the upper right hand screen. So you can kinda see if you're collars pulled funny or your. Lean it's. Lean this where leaned that way and everything is fine. And right in the middle of answering the question. and. Dr Drew's wife. Calls. And I didn't set my phone on no interruptions whatever. So Dr Drew's wife. Now when you're doing this, you go Wayne it's all Dr Drew's wife on the phone and the phone is. Landscape style. and. So then she calls and there's nothing I can do but wait for her to stop you hauling and I'm trying to answer the question I have no idea what this is looking like I think. I in my world on the screen behind Tucker's thing that's a Susan Pinski on it. That's how that's how. Chrome Agnew Miam- and then she hangs up. And I go okay and I try to proceed and three seconds later Dr drew calls and now there's two calls in the course of eight seconds and they're both coming in and they're both going full full ring length and. I got I got done with the Tucker head and I called. Drew and I try to be careful not to be angry because truce just calling me. He doesn't know he's calling me. He doesn't tell them doing anything at the part where they call back twice a little is a little rough Lewis and the part where you're on a big TV show and they're doing it but he said. He gave a pretty good explanation. He said I did call you the first time from my wife's phone. That was me. And you didn't pick up but I figure you didn't pick up because it was her so I hung up her phone and called you back on my phone satisfying as buying answer still means to back to back calls in a three minute segment but okay. Explanation. At least there's an explanation there. I think the I'm you didn't WanNA press and or or. Because you. Just. That I'm not touching anything anymore you have the video. Yeah. So remember the first time Adam talked about this when Sean with texting. A five minute rant or something yeah. So we'll just we'll just play you a little bit of it and we'll fast forward does a here's Adam on the Danish. Oh My oldest son is now at college and he made the remark to me. In everything that I read about college that it was just like just as we. And now she's just she's just kind of rolling with it and now Adam audio the rest of the interview. Come in. We'll just hear you. Talking time but a fat chick. She was. For, and felt like she was talking for very long time it. I felt very helpless because I knew. I was gone. ended. At actual insult to injury all. The last thing we see of you is your finger up to the screen like. With this I don't like you. Oh, you're telling a story about your son. To. Audio's, I'm checking out. Yeah. That was me attempting to? Clear, my screen of tax cleared it. All right. All right. Let's see Jimmy O Yang who we love it's going to be joining us soon. I wanted to.

John Campion was a guy born poor in Ireland and he came to the United States from Ireland with the twenty six bucks in his pocket. And he got himself a job as a Rhody. and. I know this because I interviewed him on, take a knee in July two, thousand, sixteen and I. then. Maintained a correspondence with him he's a, he's a car guy. And came here flat busted from Ireland got jobs a Rhody traveled with a lot of bands as a Rodeo like the rolling stones and Michael Jackson guys like that started to realize that. They them these big bands putting on these big shows, it woodstock or these big venues. Outdoors needed power. You got to think about Woodstock's to upstate New York cow field right? I mean you you gotta get power in there and if you're doing a big outdoor show. You need big outdoor power, and so I think he started being in charge of like. Procuring your your generators and getting generators and renting generators and maybe daisy chaining them to create enough power. But kind of finding that they didn't really make good generators for the rolling stones playing a big outdoor concert. And so he then started making those generators and he started making those generators and he started renting them all these big events and eventually. He then made them for villages in like Africa and stuff these little impoverished villages that didn't have power they needed his mobile units or big units I don't think they're all mobile, but he would go into these impoverished places in construct these generators he just did he have an engineering background or no I he was a poor Irish dude who? Basically. I don't know if we had an injury I think he learned on the job I think doing all that Rhody work and setting up all those generators and being the guy who was in charge of all that was. A big deal I. He he learned on the job and then he became very wealthy from doing that and then He. Got To started collecting cars and got a very, very interesting. ECLECTIC, group of cars for some reason Martini as the sponsor and Lancia where the cars you can see the pictures of the car looks so bad as a very expensive Lama, history cars and rally he's from Europe. So he like Rowling is well, any drove these cars and he showed these cars and he displayed the cars and he was just one of those Irish dudes who liked a good time and have a beer and blah blah blah. And a couple of years ago. I heard he had leukemia. Rough morning. At least you got to go to stockton kids. Look forward to and then I heard he'd beat it. You know he came down here and he was with his woman and he was in good spirits and he dropped a lot of weight but he was on the. On the man and then I just found out a couple of days back that he passed away October second, he was fifty seven years of age. And He'll be missed. Sorry to hear that. Yeah. It's. It's tough when the guys with the spirit go like that you know he to rear the taken episode episodes. Should he he he? He was in the midst of he was going to sell all his cars and by. Irish. F One cars F one cars driven by Irish drivers and start like a scholarship for young Irish drivers who wanted to get into racing all these right. He was just one of those guys who's in the middle of everything. All the time and had. God knows what that guy could have done with another thirty years on this planet and God knows who he could have helped because that's what he's trying to. He was trying to start these scholarships and help people and Blah Blah Blah and it's just it's just sad. So John Campion gone at fifty seven and. He just he just one of those guys you're gonNA miss being around big energy lived in Florida Kim on the phone anytime talk cars whenever he'd come out here he'd hang out. At the shop with US and. He's going to be missed. Did you find your collection? Cute. I think Leno finds my collection. Cute. He founded fair to Midland or something Yeah. He had some I don't even know what becomes of these cars now but these are multi million dollar cars a lot of them and I don't know listen kids. He did what he wanted to do. He came here he learned he built a business. And when he after he built the business, he started doing what he wanted to do because he built that business and we liked cars and he liked weird cars but another. Really important takeaway that we often miss is a complete. Completely non linear life. In circles back four th up upside down sideways and then got to where he wanted to be. Yeah we should We should replay and his his honor make a note they're maximum. Pat Him. All right. Let's see Jimmy o Yang, who always puts me in a better mood it's going to be on with us in a second. Maybe, we'll play the run tomatoes game and then bring you. WanNa play with Jimmy. Yeah let's bring Jimmy in and play with them. He'll be on a couple of minutes. Jimmy is just such a great spirit and It's got a new movie coming out. It's really good. Yeah it is and not only that, but it was written directed by Steve Byrne who's been in here a few times just that. COMEDIANS for every. For every three Douche bags out there there's Steve Far, just a regular dude I. Guess the problem with Comedians says they're not regular dudes or they wouldn't be comedians. I love a regular dude and they do show up in the form of comedians every once in a while and Steve Byrne is that is that guy he he is that dude he's just he sweetheart he's a great filmmaker and we'll probably have him back on the show soon to schedule this month. Oh. Yes. Okay. Matt something we haven't got to is. Found out the other day that Matt. And his phone were having difficulties and so matt had to get hold of the apple folks and see if he can troubleshoot his phone and the exchange that. Matt. Finally, the poor punish your had with the Apple Guy. or Gal I don't know was I found quite remarkable and and so did matt but also. In in keeping with our times I keep I keep saying like look at all these commercials with everything's good vibes. Now it's all good fives and there's no more. Commercials when I grew up as a lot of bottom line talks nineteen ninety-five Unlimited Unlimited Fried Shrimp for Nineteen Ninety Nine Just like here's the warranty on the on your car rust proofing transmission power line one, thousand, one, hundred, thousand miles like everything was like cashback numbers, numbers, rebates, numbers, Kelley. Blue. Book says Blah Blah Blah Blah and now it's all like. This just good good vibes and so Matt's phone took a shed and when your phone goes in this modern age. You, want to get that thing. As fast as humanly possible because your life on pause. Yes. You're basically out of it until you get that phone back. So Matt, what happened. Well I thought maybe I could take it to an apple store and have one of the genius bar guys helped me fix it but because of the lockdowns pretty much all the apple stores are closed right now. So my only method of getting this fixed was to do one of those chat things, which is always a wonderful experience. So we'll put up the conversation right now. It's very straightforward with them. They've started out the chat by saying, Hi, there I'm your friendly Apple Agent I. Hope you're doing fantastic today and thank you for the contact and it's a first off. How can you be doing? Fantastically it's like talking fucking corner right like I. Hope Your Family Seven. Oh you're here die. The deceased. Fantastic. Well, let's hope it's a thumbs up or maybe not. Protocol. If you're reaching out to the friendly Apple Tech. Guy, that means something has gone terribly wrong. With, your day thus far, this was. Got Right, which is the reader at home depot or. Costco I love you. Just gets better and better. Matt please read this. So I replied very matter of factly my phone will not turn on past the apple screen. I've tried to do the reset where you squeeze both sides of the phone still will not pash pass the initial apple icon. This was her response, his response. All I'm super bummed to hear that's happened and I promise. We will do our best to crack this mystery together like the Scooby Gang. Cheeses now I wanted to throw my laptop at the wall also, this could have been. John Campion's grieving wife. Fifty six year old woman husband past. Forty eight hours ago in the hospital attacked by leukemia, and now she's gotTa get his fucking phone shut off or something like nothing left at a billion dollars with a call, right? That's right. I gotta sit. And cry. So she sitting there I mean I, this doesn't have to be a child this. All Matt's not a child. This crazy right aw scooby gang liked insane how you met I just turned thirty six cents weird I'm wondering if like. When you connect, they have to have your information purchases edge information like if you were like twenty six or twenty, three or something, this would kind of make sense but you're you're you're an adult male. Human. This was a human. Gina? Yes but they don't know who I am and response. Sadly, that was someone's. Oh no that's worse. It's weird, right All set by apple. That's all just automated. I had some of those thoughts to, but then I thought. Doing an automated standard template of scooby snacks and on how about a reach around. They offer to reach your APP I mean come on say it'd be a weird thing to put in the charter. Here's going to be the response Scooby Doo reference big. Flow chart like hug emoji like. They'd be weird thing to standardize this person was doing this made some bold choices. Yeah. They went for us. I'm just saying it is a new world order out there, and once again I will read what I got from. Hydro my rowing machine company when I got to one million. meters. I think it is. Yeah. I got one million meters. You can. You can read it. One Million Meters your extraordinary, your amazing your fantastic your marvellous and beyond. Wow. Wow you've made my nice I. It's just. It's weird. How many you can. You can drop it down Christiane it is. Now. So here's kind of the problem is I, look at it. There's nothing wrong with good vibes. Good vibes are good. You should have those in your life with your kids and your family and stuff like that. The problem is there isn't an infinite amount of time like if you're doing a TV commercial, it's thirty seconds. So we can talk about good vibes and the TV commercial, but we will miss mileage warranty and and other things like that and. So. Unfortunately, good vibes which are great at home with your dog and your kids and stuff don't work is good for commercial travel and stuff like that. You know what I mean. That's a little more precision step back doors close at this time doors up. And Yes I'm not I'm not sure on your point. It's funny 'cause West. Their commercials. Technology obviously. But remember bags fly free and the ad like crying bag handlers like the love value via the southwest love they were on the the vanguard. Of, good vibes selfless. was like a leader in that's. A hard. Yes. That's right. They were famous for you know everyone taking viral videos of the hilarious stand up they do instead of the safety speech. Yeah. We put an end to that. The reason that over because she did fi five. Or something or no she did they any meaning mighty Mo and someone said that's racist and that was the end of that as far as I know. But yes, their logo was built around a heart man that's probably twenty years old now I don't know how long they're Howard has been but the point is they got the good vibes. Early. Early on early early on anyway, we're in good vibes veil and that person is talking to Matt like he's a seven-year-old learning disability right like aw. I'm super bombed knowing. I maybe it's me maybe it's me but does all Feel a little personal like a little blurring the lines like if we're in the room together, we'd be hugging. Like. It feels a little intimate to me know new agey a little like you know. Let's hug it out. Yeah it's even. It's even blurring. It's getting a little out of the lane of. Problem solving technology and a little into the we have a relationship here. All ause is what your mommy or your school teacher would say. The next word should be sweetie, right. All right we're waiting on Jimmy who we end, we're going to talk to him in a second. and. We'll play rotten tomatoes. Yeah. All right. When we break and we'll come back with Jimmy Yang rotten tomatoes right after this. It's time to check. Adams voicemail. Man Jim in Glendale. Arizona. Colin just turned fifty a couple of weeks ago. Sixty nine with the wife Sunday afternoon. Just, let you know that. Now there's hope for guys your age you can still be doing this some. Heard you talking about maybe you've done your last sixty nine but. Keep the white some chip. You can still do it. You can leave us a message at eight, eight, eight, six, three, four, one, seven, four, four. Yeah. I think once you pass the age of forty nine your chances of performing a sixty nine if there was a chart drops off precipitously. Precipitously Yeah Basically. It's the same chart they use on chances of making a NHL roster. Forty nine. Impossible. It's just really really hard. There is a couple of Gordon House out there in the world but not many. And I bet you that I bet you Gordie. Howe sixty nine well, well, well into his eighty S he's the outlier for both cat. I'm just saying after the age of forty nine. If you could put if you could form a chart for that, it would follow. The same one is making a major league baseball team and starting shortstop. All Right, Jimmy Oh. Yeah. Hang is nowhere to be found but that won't deter us because we're going to do our rotten tomatoes game and then if he hops on, he'll he'll hop on. So should we do a little rotten tomatoes? Awesome. I'm the game. Pittsburgh PA. Does. So we got Halloween right around the corner. But rather than featuring your standard spooky Halloween movies this week, we're going to focus on movies that are not only scary, but also based on a true story. Can I say that Fuckin- commercial where it's at Geiko commercial and Casper the friendly ghost like sits in between the couple. Have you seen that one I think so I think it's been around for a couple of ads and while it is so fucking unfunny and annoying it's like it's like living with Castro and he's like, can I have some more candy corn and it's like he's making a mass chomp Chomp chomp so ill conceived so weak and it's making a second round now coming back again, it drives me fucking insane that commercial. Just it only drives me nuts because as a creative type I. Think how did this happen? Sorry you can play for one six. Houses on it by Casper the friendly ghost. Hey Kurt movies, August sex sir. I can't believe how easy it was a save hundreds of dollars on car insurance GEICO sex I got popcorn, caramel, corn, and got. Somebody wrote kooks allow believe it Geico could. Our on car insurance. This here's my question. This is a very brian question to ask. And I'm not and I'm not saying, I, abide by it I'm just asking when this originally aired was this across Promo with like a casper movie. This is so I don't think so but because they never alluded to Casper in theaters or whatever. But out and this is the nexus of our relationship because Christie and I have sat and commercials like this pop when I say like this I mean geico commercials and I screamed at her and She has nothing to do with with the commercials but I'm like someone wrote this in twenty minutes and and got her rubber-stamped and it went on the air the the next week did these these are terrible and? They're bereft of like a comedic twist like all right. Can we how Casper's in the House Casper's in the House that's the end. There's no, there's no there's no joke I agree although I have seen some that are funny that that aren't aren't horrible I just don't know what the vetting processes. Sorry Casper, the friendly ghost room became out. Casper's. Yes. All right. Let's play the game. Here we go. All right. Let's begin with Jack. The ripper. The notorious London serial killer never been identified. That's right. His name is not Jack Might Be Claude. Nor have is a string of sex worker murders ever been solved, but leave it to Hollywood trying to wrap up some of the loose ends Johnny Depp Heather Graham Andy and homeless star in two thousand one's from hell from L.. Hughes Brothers, oh it is. I'm pretty sure we can verify that but I'm pretty sure this huge weather's we. All right. What did you see it? I did not I didn't hear great things. I didn't make the rounds I didn't hear great things either and I wonder. I do. Brian do do movies that attempt. Whore and fall short. Are they punished I? Feel like they they do not frown. They do frown upon these movies like the critics when they don't land right. Yeah. The ones that really land well are the ones that are super scary or Ironic take you know what I mean like cabin in the woods, right? Right. All right. So this has to be. Should be rotten on the other hand sometimes. The brother Shannon I get cleaner to for being historical. Yeah like. An old old London town. Well, yeah. But also being based on a true story. Yeah. I'm going to say yes and I'M GONNA. Say I have no idea and for that reason I'll just go fifty percents straight up I went pretty low at thirty seven I thought I was going being very generous. Forty one. From hell got a much higher score than it deserves. It is rotten. At fifty seven pursue. There you go. That's an example of kind of movie. We'd have no Goddamn idea. Now almost serial killers are male eileen worn us is the rare exception. In a way she was the Anti Jack The ripper. Her name might have been clawed at a sex worker self ultimately killing seven of her male clients before her arrest and eventual execution in a strange turn of casting the gorgeous. Search Charlie's Farren gained thirty pounds shaved her eyebrows and spent many hours in the makeup chair to look as much like the real person possible co-starring Christina Ricci from two thousand, three monster. Didn't you win for this dockers. Yeah. I know sex workers work. oftentimes for. Tips. Don't. Tips I mean, you gotTa leave Nice Tip. That's what I'm saying you killing me the end of our sexual encounters going to definitely affect that isn't gonNA factor in for actually you can have all the money actually if you kill me maybe that maybe that was the thinking I didn't see this movie. I. Felt like I was just going to be depressed and I didn't want to what about the poster we'll give you that idea. Yeah I. Know. and. Also it's funny like. Shirley and gained thirty pounds and she size four now yeah. Well, if I did that over the summer. And also. I know hardly killed any John's almost none. I think what I said. Doesn't go look Pratt okay look. This is a critic. They love this anytime a hot chick and make herself ugly. That's always that's always some good points there. There's no doubt. This is this has got to be hi, this is critically it's gotta be now. Is it ninety six or is it seventy nine with a great performance? I don't know I'm I'm just reading the critics on this one and I'm going to say ninety tail. Yeah, Charlene's my favorite african-american actress. I'm GONNA give it an eight. It's right. Eighty nine. Monster is certified. Fresh. At eighty one percent. and. The people have it at eighty one very, very rare that the audience scores dead nuts on. It's true back in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two American tourists were accidentally left behind in shark-infested waters near the great. Barrier. Reef never to be seen again, this found footage documentary horror film attempts to explain what may have happened to them. Two thousand three's open water. Yeah. Oh, God this is a great trailer. I never saw the movie I did I. Think I saw it on TV and it's it's almost like Blair witch in that it's very irritating like you're just like Oh these pork is and then it gets a little terrifying is found is this is a found footage format. I don't recall that. Being. So, everything. That's films. Camera. Octopus I. Don't remember that is it founded. Figured out. Matt says, yes. Yeah. It's all nauseating shaky cameras all them like going to stay number three. Yeah. Yeah. I saw the theater it's a good movie. I don't know that it's a great movie, but it's it's a good movie and. This chick of a foreign accent. I I'll give it a couple of points for. All right let's say. They enjoyed it. There's nothing for the critics to hate about this movie at this this kind of movie where they all could have given it. A sixty five or seventy five if that's the way they did. It could all be like a marginal thumbs up. I'm going to say they all liked it at eight hundred, eight, oh. Wow or seventy three. I don't have a good feeling about this. I. Barely fresh sixty three. Sorry Adam Bryant can you repeat your scores? I was figuring out if he found footage or not eight, hundred, seventy, three, hundred, seventy, three, and it is found footage, right? Go Open water is fresh. Rush Water. Seventy one. Oh Needed that I went way too high and. Thirty three. Fans, not a fan. Allegedly, the most haunted house in the world sits on a property fifty miles south of San Francisco. The Winchester Mystery House two decades to build. Seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms along with staircases leading to nowhere. A couple of years ago they made a movie about it starring Helen Mirren as an aging Sarah Winchester haunted by ghosts been slowly going mad. In two, thousand, eighteen winchester. Remember the trailer at least I. Remember this movie existing. Didn't see it. It just seems like genre. It seemed like the kind of movie they'd been it seemed like the kind of script that'd been kicking around for loading. I took the tour move. Not, good nonplussed now, and by the way wasn't one of those things like it wasn't eleven dollars it was like thirty one dollars to take this tour and it was nothing the furniture resolve gone. It's just a bunch of shaky rooms and there's not much to it. It seemed like just a crazy woman had a house and she kept adding onto the house like a crazy woman who gets a cat and then gets more cats. That's basically what it was I don't know why the winchester gun thing kind of gave it that thing and then we we give it a title and it became something that I don't know that there's much to it joining here the trailer. Yeah. The trailer. The biggest tourist trap in American history. People pay up to fifty dollars to walk through it. Gargantuan seven storeyed structure with no apparent rhyme or reason. Chester mystery house maze of halls, more confusing them next putting the down economy. The businesses in the red. On the orders of a grieving widow of lionsgate. Hired Academy Award Winner Helen Mirren. Believe in ghosts stopped to try and get more of your money. Leonard Maltin exclaims just like the God Damn House, they open doors in this movie that don't go anywhere. Winchester. The stupid house. Became a stupid movie. I'll be honest. I could do a better cell jerome. Nice Job Dawson. All right. I'm behind. I gotTA catch up. This I gotta go. For broke higher low and I'm going low at. Twenty six. I went lower I think it's a close game. I said twenty two while I was afraid to go that low thirty eight. Not Low. Enough Winchester is rotten at thirteen o amit. Consist even at twenty six, I'm consistently high doubled up and no man people had at thirty two. It's been a while since one of drop dead nuts on one of time. All right. We move onto the next one. I. Do have an update on open water because if asked the same question is it found footage but is it found footage you got to look it up. Oh, you do. Here's the deal three questions him yes. Here's the deal. There is an exterior cameraman. It's not the two characters filming each other however in the plot of the movie spoiler alert at the end of the movie, they cut open a shark they take video camera out of the Shark, and that footage is supposedly the footage you've just seen. So it is quote unquote found footage size not in the same style. Call that found foot. Well I remember watching the movie and there were shots of the couple floating in the sea and Selfie stick that long, and it's all and it's all sort of water level, but it's two of them in the same shot. If you guys need me rounding in the Pacific. But Matt you've learned valley very valuable lesson whenever I get to the third. Are you sure it's always time to look it up. That's what I did. All right. Good job. Thank you. All right. Here we go. Championship rounds, our final film features, Faye, dunaway's legendary performances, a wire hanger wielding monster in this county classic about the fall of Hollywood star Joan Crawford based on the controversial biography written by Jones, adopted daughter. The movie chronicles her heroin abuse and manipulation at the hands of the mother that took her and her brother in as orphans from nineteen eighty-one. Mummy Dearest Hanger seen. hangers busy so many times that's not even the most terrifying part of the movie. It's just one big sound drop this this movie but I don't know if it was a good movie or not I just know there's all these quotable scenes. So was this a celebrated movie or was it just a? You know how I want these goddamn snakes off this? God Damn Airplane like Dad or was it real movie? Here's the question. Are you asking the gays or are you asking everybody? Well. Everyone has seen this as gay because. If you weren't in it. If you weren't gave when you walk into the theater turn you. Oh. It up Google that shit you were. If you stayed for the whole movie, you were by by minute forty one. But if you're actually stayed for a little movie Yes, you turn gay. And If you hung out afterward and discussed it. You're bottom. Yeah I don't know if you guys know that. Okay News to me. So everyone has been converted to gay in this movie and I need to I need to make up some points so This either one of those iconic. Sometimes, he's iconic movies. Coach forty. Four. I thought this is a big movie there when talked about and stuff and it's like, yeah. But the critics didn't really like it yet. This is a very, very tough I mean it was made in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, it's big can't be close. Exactly suck on it I mean everyone knows the wire hangers thing I'm going for broke I'm going low thirty eight. I've watched I've played this game long enough to know. Throws out a score just I'll. Go with it. All right. All right. I today is national coming out day I went with my heart. It's a great movie very quotable seen many drag queens do do many performances not when I walked in. I said eighty. Were happily married men when they walked into that theater with children's mortgage a loving adoring wife and when they walked out, they went drag queen. All right. Here we go. They missed out. Mommy, deals has rotten. Oh. At forty. Nine? That's that's a travesty hypothetical numbers are within a four percent margin of error almost every time my stupid. The ones I throw out are very accurate and once I spit out or not. Gina Grad congratulations made the podium but what did I have before Mommy Dearest? Using number what I have before we started playing. Earlier in the day I'm going I'm going to take genus logic and take it a step further before I was born. Rent a movie. I was zero. That's right. Gina Grad with an eighty eight. Ball Brian Coming. In at forty three Adam. Corolla congratulations second-place fifty nine. Oh, we're back. Brian's. Back. I don't think she doesn't run down the list of movies real quick I don't think I've seen any of those. Not always a help. Brian your what you have a minus sixteen game I'll go and get the fuck in. The T shirt I printed up. Sixteen we had from Hell Monster, open water winchester, and my dearest didn't see a single well. I saw one in new enough to know it was filmed on a gibb?

Helped people on on twitter we're taking the. But. Those are all good movies. You those are guessing okay.

Uphill Adventure

"This episode is brought to you by generate life sciences. We're very excited to have them on board making our show a possibility. We really are welcome to if these ovaries could talk. I'm jamie robin where your host not spun. I am a lesbian so we need to tell our story. It's not your nuclear family. More such not. Just your mom and dad. We're not earning we're back from break robin with how was your break. It was it was it was good. It was it a break. Do you feel relaxed. do you i do. I didn't care nothing over this so we didn't have. There's generally like three or four holiday parties that we that are like ongoing yearly things that we we go to. We didn't have to go to any of those. We didn't have any play dates. I mean we took walks and things. There was nothing we had to do. We built a coffee table. That's the kind of shit we were doing crazy table. I think it's because of our kids dangers in what you just described to me is basically what i went through and that is very hard for me at this stage in our family if we don't have a schedule if we don't have things to do. These children are literally on top of me running on me screaming like there to. They need to get out and run around. They need yankee well. I'm not saying that we did good things. I was getting like my q. Studio which is like this like tracker that we have all the all their apps like telling me how much game time my son was. Playing in it was four or five. I mean it's like saying we did good things as parents. But i'm saying to watch a lot of. I've binged a lot of good tv. I finished the crown nailed. it jamie. I started the wilds.

Could our jobs solid ninety five percent of our belongings to go hike for three months before buying and converting the sprinter van that we now live in we started our own business got engaged. We've brought home a golden retriever puppy and we would have been married a few months ago except for coded now. We're starting to look into the process of adding kids to our family. Who the active. You sure did practice young lady you get it. Here's a here's what. I think i think you guys are living the dream this is. I'm jealous. I know that what everyone thinks. I think jamie resist the urge to tell you not to route it and have children but the grass is always greener. Come comes spent twenty four hours in one them. I don't know if you're gonna take the girl screaming. But i i wanna say that it's so funny that during tragedy. This is when you do things like this because first of all. I just had the thought last night. Oh my god covid might be ending soon and we didn't even go on a road trip. We didn't take advantage of this. What do you did you even live through. I don't even know like what are you gonna do like in bags like. Where are you going on right now and then i really like. We're we're we're going to do and also i'm not going on a road trip with three year old. What am i a maniac just drive. There's dollywood it's closed. We can't go in but that's where it is like. No we jamie for a second. I wanna talk about california bank. Yeah isn't it funny that we both used california creo achievement. You off track. I wanna give our listeners a code that they're gonna love. It's a savings code. Harry go if you guys use the code. Oh ct for over could talk. Yes jamie you're gonna get a free level to donor information subscription access for ninety days. That's worth a hundred and forty five bucks. That's it's huge and it gives you access to extend extended donor profiles hired hood photos and adult photos for some of the donors and it gives you access to their medical histories. You can read personal essays. They've written this. This is a really great value and only get your stuttering such had value. It's really if somebody had given. Are you kidding. But you spent so much money on these things but you know what i love about california crow other than they helped us make our kids other than that which is stick to. I just learned that they partner with lgbtq plus organizations like family equality the center only human to sponsor family building events around the us. And i know and they also create a special discounted fertility preservation program for the transgender community. Robin what death which can help give the opportunity to have biological children after transitioning. That is absolutely amazed that california cry mean. And i think i think also it's really important to note that they do medical testing sites screening background check and they have over forty years of experience. They've been around kelly. Crowe bank is not messing around me. They are not okay. And if any of you out there are looking for donor sperm. Just go to cry. Oh bank dot com. You could open free account and you're gonna use our code. What was it. Jimmy o c. T. for overs kabq. Yes in the year to activate your subscription today. Yeah that's cry. oh bank. Dot com c. r. y. o. b. a. n. k. dot com crime inc grammy expert. Spurts what got you guys like this. That was a big thing. Like what selling ninety five percent of your possessions. That just tuesday night. You're like you want to sell all things in van. it started. It started differently so it started as me having a dream for like five or six years of hiking the pacific crest trail for anyone. Who's not familiar. It goes from the border of california and mexico to the border of washington in canada. Two thousand six hundred and fifty two miles long and it's with the movie. Wild is about so that was a dream that i had for like five or six years and i was working in and we know holy shit. I can do this. I'm just like she couldn't do it. I can do talk. Meanwhile thought you were talking about the book into the wild. And i was like that book didn't end you remember was like that. Inspired you to go off the guide. Tell us i really wanna to do so. So we basically made a plan for ourselves. I was working in this corporate job. Which is like soul-sucking anna's like this is not the life that i want to be living and so we worked really hard for a couple of years in saved as much money as we could. We were like we're doing it so we quit our jobs and we sold like ninety. Five percent of our stuff kept the rest of our stuff here. My parents house and we left. We had spent one previous night backpacking in our lives together and we just went out there and we ended up hiking. Nine hundred miles. We hiked for three months. That was that was what we did. That's a male sailing explained to me the research. You did to get yourselves ready to to do this long trip. Yeah how'd you come off. The trails did. Where did you sleep. your one. Practice backpacking so the one practice backpacking light went. Hair was supposed to be a three night trip and we gave up after one. Ill went really good sign. We still went. We were committed by. Listened to most of your podcasts. And the audio book from your book by the way love cute and i love when you mentioned spreadsheet people in relationships because that is this person right here team spreadsheet high five so i made i made along spreadsheets about the hike and just like dove in for years. I was like this is the dream. This is like everything. And so. I really really obsessed over planning and learning and researching and watching hundreds of hours of youtube videos of people that ve logged every single day of their pc to hike and everything select just trying to learn much could about it and the moving out there and we did it for three months did about a third a little bit more than a third of the the trail. That's incredible. yeah it was good and so what happened. At the end of the trails that we kept getting sucked in to bend oregon. Which is the most wonderful place and full of people living in their sprinter vans and so we would do hike for like a day and then we would like get her to bend and then we would go back out and we would hike for like a couple days and then we get around the bed and spend another like three or four days there during the women it was doing women's world cup during was fourth of july. We were just like having too great of a time in bend to i'll back you'd have some drinks with people and then i'm would you be like in a hotel or something when you were in band. Go back all right. Let's let's get three more days under our belt and it's hilarious. Yeah then you'd like you run into somebody else like we're going to bend really. Oh yeah also go. So while we were there we met people living in sprinter vans and it was kind of in the back burner of our minds. Our initial plan was to hike for six months then traveled internationally for six months. We were gonna take your off but instead we decided to hike for three months and then by a sprinter dannon converted unlimited leaving the. Wow we did and and here. We are now even students just for the record. I've been calling it. Your swiffer man was just wondering why you were calling different. I had no idea is just ignored. It i didn't know we're like your old like those aged relatives enter. Just like too close to the zoom. And how. how long ago was this so we bought the van july of twenty nineteen. We converted it with friends until we finished january toning money. You left in january right. Has larry like right at democrats hitting. Yeah thanks yeah. We had like three months pre pandemic in the van which were great and then we came back here to my parents house for spring right out the pandemic and then just started taking day trips and weekend trips again in the van as things started to open and then in the fall we went out again. How so. I want to hear about like fixing up the van and what you had to do like you get just a van right. And then you'd like soup it up with a bed. And what do you have a little. They've got to loss. Jimmy the things in santa. i haven't seen it. it's amazing omega. It's like a house it's it's like. Rv it's an rv but it's just the yourself we did it with with to our friends who flip houses and they are very great. And i helped a little bit. I think most of the work i would. Yeah i d percents. Yeah i did like all of the research planning and then he was like this is actually possible. This possible the pool exactly so so there's definitely like a group effort in that regard and then now we've been doing Rotations a whole new electrical system and putting in a heater in an air conditioner and like david. All how so. You're going to go back out on the road. Yes and do you know where you're going and you stay in places like for long periods of time. Are you like one night here. One night there. The best part is you can just decide on the fly so we have a general goal that we want to go back to southern california. But maybe we'll stop in new mexico for a few weeks. Maybe we'll go to colorado again. Like i don't know it just depends how we're feeling how the weather is but our main goal at the van to answer your question of like. How long do we stay in. Place is is has been to try and find someone that we wanna live. So i mean road. Tripping is exhausting like it tiring just driving all the time and so. That's not really what we do with the van. Like we'll go from point a to point b but then once we get there the right. Now we're thinking about going to southern california in january salons. Get there as long as everything with kobe. We'll see what happens but if we can go there then we'll stay there for at least a month two months that yeah so the time. Where do you park. Is it hard to find places to park the van because big right it is big but it's just like a big white van. It's of like one of the package delivery events in so we just park on the street most the time. I have to ask as a mom. What do your parents think about all this very supportive. They thought it was funny. At the beginning i think a couple of months ago now your dad came to us and was like i just i read in my magazine that you girls are social influencers. Now i understand the concept of what you're doing and i can tell my friends at the rotary club or wherever he goes that you guys are influencers. Not just that you're living in your actually. They're making money so that the business you're talking about steady started is basically the the social influencing business or did you start another business in the van to just make life fun just one. This one's just just as a professional photographer and she has her own business that you started years ago. And you've been doing that for years now and you do that. When we come back to the philly area you'll reconnect with your clients and work there and so that's your business and then we have our business which is like uphill adventure and it's new to ben instagram. I'm easy as of ladies on the road doing the thing. It's so cool. And so obviously you're in a van you gotta dog. You're living the dream. And then all of a sudden you're like we should have a baby the sarah's like the scheduler the spreadsheet person but i have always operated on these long term goals so may to go to college. I made a goal to pay off my student debt. Like in a certain amount of time did that. Like i wanted to be engaged by certain time. Did that and i wanted to have kids when i was thirty and we were supposed to get married a few months ago and then the idea was that we were going to start the process of having kids because we know that it can take a while. There are some things that we need to do. And i want to start that process now. I wanna still have kids. When i'm thirty who i know but maybe it won't happen. I'm thirty like thirty one or two. It could happen. It could happen. Yeah that could happen so fast or it could take to take a long time but you have to plan for it true. What are you doing to plan for it coming on. This podcast talks to you. How we so you guys always talk about like the people that went before he that. Teach you everything that you need to know. We don't have any of those people like you guys have been those people for us in. Its bill cheapo. Nice but for. So that'd be your. Don't you have any people there. We need people. I want to know jess in your long term plans did did it include the fact that you were going to be married to a woman out of that come about. Yeah definitely not. I'm not married to a woman that was for sure we met at university and i was dating men and sarah. You did have one other relationship with a woman for your. We met. But yeah nocco we just nodding. She's a posture. Jeez i mean he came around to this social influence or thing though so come along. He's come around to this wonderful wonderful people. Yeah it's awesome so that wasn't in the cards but you guys met at university and it was like done a done deal. You've found your person. It was very. We have a difficult time definitely like because neither of us we like came out as a couple Being like this is who were with we didn't have like individual like realizations coming on experiences. Like outside of each other and so doing that we lived together before dating always linked together and like just a lot of different things with our relationship that were i think we just. We had to get through a lot of make sure that this was actually what we wanted and worked through a lot of insecurities like in ourselves a definitely together and like only having each other for that we didn't we. We still don't really have you friends or like any type of community like to confide in that regard so it wasn't definitely like you're my person loses it. Yeah you were together. This is going to be great. It was a long a long road. Yeah but we're here. We're really happier. That's also similar to the living. rosalie like. They had very similar experience. And what's interesting. Because i was wondering when you said you didn't have anyone who went before you are thought they must not have a queer community in that explains why because you just had each other And then you just were doing things that were youtube things. Yeah i mean. We went to a christian college. We grew up in separate like christian households in just like in that world especially when when we grew up like that didn't exist. Those two things were not you. They didn't go together so there weren't other queer folks in your your college even or you found them like a handful of which found out afterward. Yeah but like Queer staff weren't allowed to work there like there was like very. Yeah it was terrible ronnie. I mean that's that's where you grew up. That's what you do. Your parents thinking about kids in our dapi. All my good necessarily mom ever excited. Yeah is the youngest of three and we might be the only ones helping. Yes says she is ready. She is so mad at cova for pushing us back. Because you'd be married by now. Yeah we were supposed to be married in october. It was gonna be a destination wedding so it was kind of out of the picture to make. Everybody travel across the country for our wedding this year. So you're just waiting. Yeah we just pushed it back a year we. We talked about alternatives or just getting married any way or changing plans or whatever. But i mean at the end of the day. We just decided i kind of had a very justice. Wonderful kind of doesn't really care that much about the logistics in what things look like in the day in all that. But i'm like i have a pretty clear idea of what i want to look like. And so the end of the day i would just rather wait in hopefully have that. I mean we've been together by then together for over eight years. So i wanna i want what i want to stay. Yeah you of course. Yeah and there's nothing wrong with that. So where are you on the plans for the baby. Like how do you go about it. And how far along are you into it. I said babies. I just made you guys thank you. So you're welcome just more welcome. I wouldn't mind having twins. You get him out of the way you're done boom bill. You're never a that. Wouldn't be enough for her. She said it would be fine unless it's twins and then she wants to do it twice so i don't know okay. So how do you plan on going about this. Let's get into that. Is going to go to the store. Actually pick them up right now. Okay so we wanna have kids. We haven't done the first step yet like we we have. We made an appointment with the fertility clinic but then we ended up canceling it because of kobe. In just money send. We realized our health insurance wasn't gonna cover anything so that was an issue so are is that we are going to get proper health insurance. That has for benefits for us. We are going to more difficult than it sounds yummy. Because i haven't found that right so the interesting thing is that we don't have actual jobs other thing to say we. We're we're self him yet. We have to get different jobs like part time so i recently found out that starbucks offers really good benefits even for part time workers. So that's interesting. Have you looked into their health. Insurance does it does. Yes in so they offer. You have to work there for three months part time. So i think it's twenty hours a week and then you're eligible for their insurance which offers twenty five thousand dollars in treatments. I think for each person for an it doesn't matter yes for any gender caveat sommes. I didn't even know this honestly. I didn't know that that any insurance offers this. I guess the company. Yeah so i was feeling you know some kind of way about it because unlike stop discriminating against me like called my insurance called her and they're like oh i've never really thought about it and i'm like that's so nice for you tonight so i did a lot of research and i found the starbucks offers and think also amazon and t mobile offers similar packages for their workers. But i don't know the details about those goes to now. Burbach seemed like the best option for myself. Justice gonna work at starbucks bathroom. You're gonna get a job that insurance and then stay there until you get your baby. I mean yeah. Or maybe i'll stay. I don't know we'll say is they are early hours. You probably be up there for him or something. I don't know just saying i'm running out. Prepare you for parenting. Yeah that's true. I'm already at like five dollars. So this is. This is just so interesting that this is something. That couples like us have to navigate before we even start this process. You have found. The job is to give you the insurance that you need. And you're gonna take this job so that you have jets is starting but it's props os thought we were. It is and look at look at how resilient and how. We know how to jump through hoops. So that means that you want to go the science route. Then you wanna do you. You're not doing it at home. With right we probably wouldn't do it at home. Probably not i mean this is where it's it's it's It's so tricky because there are a good amount of options to be unless made like a chart for you guys because i just felt overwhelmed flow chart. Yeah you is that nazi. Abc from his action. Like jesus not to that extent but yeah it's it's been interesting because i mean especially the whole like versus i'd be like g pay. Do you get five times. The amount of chances that it costs for one chance when you have a little bit better percentage than you do for the other ones like these options. That i'm just like i think until we go talk to somebody like find a doctor that we like entrust and get tested for like fertility and figure out how things actually look than may be like the past that we will take will become a little bit clearer but i think i would probably be a little bit more openness starting with you. You're kind of the game. Maybe that we should start with. Ivf instead of just skip that again. I don't know we gotta talk to the science. I think for sure that the doctors will give you some guidance. But i will say in my particular scenario. My wife had the first via ivf. 'cause i i wasn't working. And then when it was my term we only had two vials of sperm left. So the doctor recommended. I looked fine. Everything looked but the doctor said. Let's just go straight to. Ivf you'll get pregnant with this one vial we'll be deadly used to vials per insemination so we'll just use this. We'll get you pregnant. Didn't work more. Ivf's more obvious didn't work and in the end two and a half years later i ended up getting pregnant via you. I did the reverse so bizarre. Yes you just. You really don't know but the doctor will guide you but they do to a certain extent jamie right but like i feel like a lot of young people like lesbians are at this crossroads of do i jump right to ivf. Because it's you're not going into a clinic with fertility issues going in with financial issues and you're trying to get that baby as quickly as possible and it. That's a really hard decision. Yeah i think the decisions that you can manage right now and the ones that you can make this decision on your own are. Who's going to carry. Do you know that. Yes i think so. I mean it depends a little bit on the numbers. But i'm of birth photographer so i have seen the whole process many a time and smell really something that i think i would necessarily need to do for myself now so serious and i can take the pictures. sarah says she probably wouldn't mind carrying as much so neither of us are thrilled about it. Yeah that's that's where we're at. This is awful. I know but i know. I don't want to carry just not want to carry but just does not want to carry more so team. Yes like i can. I would view doing that. And just as really great at taking care of me and like those types of things is like so much more empathetic than i am and i feel like it just it just makes sense for our relationship anyway. I mean it's a huge thing to carry a baby. Like i have so much respect for every woman who has ever done it. It is not Some not easy. Some women thrive in it. You might. you might actually really really love it. Sarah you never know. Have you thought about doing the testing. You know modern fertility one of those at home kits. Because then i feel like my only concern is like you are. You're walking down a path where you're saying this is i think what we're going to do in and you don't see you haven't seen any numbers yet and so every thought about doing that. So that way you know for sure like her situation is is decent and yours is decent. So you're free to make the choice you wanna make right so we hadn't heard about those until we listened to your podcast and then we did some research on them. I think my question with it is if we do those like that. Sounds really great but then if we want to continue things at a doctor's office is just gonna we have reduced do it again with them and you just well. That's why it's usually. It's usually just a co pay. If you have insurance that covers fertility. The doctors are going to put them through the same tests again. Though yeah of course they're going to rerun sure you're you're absolutely right. Yeah i think. I think those are great. Really great for those. Who are going to do the at home insemination and possibly those who just really want to know ahead of time before they dr. Yeah i think we definitely would do that in would try at home if we had a known donor but i don't know that refrain do that with. Oh so that's another question. What kind of are we getting here. We go into the sperm bank route. We on the donor route. We go on the right side of the route. What is there. There's there's a couple of brothers. But i don't think either was interested in doing that so i realized pool. It is stressful. I have been heading up most of the research on all of this for us. So i found this podcasts slash on audible. It was like a true crime thing and i made sarah listen to we. Listen to it together. I probably shoulda previewed it because it was terrifying but it was about donors there was about like some sketchy lawsuit. This one donor that apparently was like scammed the system basically in had he was like marked as like this prime candidate with like all of these like degrees in like a great health record in all of these things and then it turned out he had mental health issues and other things going on and he has hundreds skits through the bank. Hundreds of kids fourteen years because the thing the big thing. The big picture is that they are not regulated. That there is no. There's no fact checking. There's no and the thing with all these mothers and couples. I went online. And i googled him when i found out who has name was and i found this information. Now in thirty seconds and these the sperm bank didn't do that and so now of course just makes me listen to this podcast and i'm like well. Why interest anyone so obviously. That doesn't happen all the time. What's the name of this episode for listeners. Who might wanna hear audible. It's called donor nine. Six to three horrifying. I mean because you have to sort of relinquish control you know like mary. And i went through the process. Originally we were gonna do the thing where it was going to be my egg. Mary was going to carry. And i had to fill out. They then considered me like an egg donor. So i had to fill out all their paperwork and like my past history and do some psych valid. All the stuff i was like. This is insanity. This is my wife but my point is that. When i was doing the paperwork i had this feeling like i don't even know a lot of this family history. They're asking. I'm sort of in these allows people are gone and i'm just kind of making it up and like what would stop me from. Just exactly you know villain in the lines. And then. Mary and i just came to the point where we were like at some point. We just have to accept. Yeah we have to accept that this person is helping us and then just let like go. That's it's not easy. Yeah working they say at the sperm bank that they cap the families off at twenty families. They're all different. Each sperm bank is different. But at the bulls robin and i use california cry. Oh and they kept him off it. I think it's twenty. They're not usually in the program for more than a year now but they can't control what this donor does like. he can. Just go down the street to like a different bank than if the the one bank isn't gonna payments more so like again totally irrational fears of mine. But it's not rational trying to think about like what what is it. That like upsets me about that so much. Like let's think about it logically of to like okay so like what are the implications of of something like this happening and obviously like you want your kids to be healthy but then say that that's all fine. I mean what is the other thing. And i think for me. It's just strange. I think like if your kid is gonna then when they grow up like up their donors siblings than like. Oh i have like seventy siblings or something like that's just a jam it for me. I think given how we were raised like our whole experiences in like coming out being together in already being like different. We're it in. We are in so then having something else like our our kids are already gonna have two moms and already like it's going to be different in just like wrestling with that for myself. The end then being like well on top of it than like my kid can grow up in half like hundred siblings. That's that's different and trying to figure that out as being like that's kind of the root of what upsets me about it. Well eighty something. You have definitely thought this through way. More than i did. I way more of the bad things that could happen than i did. Which i'm not saying that's a good thing on my part. That is not a good thing on my part. But i will say yes. You definitely have to get your your head wrapped around this before you it. If you're gonna do it you have to be okay with it. And i think for me and i think robin can speak to what helps her with it but for me knowing so many other families who have children who are donor conceived makes it normal now to me so it doesn't feel it doesn't feel stranger or weird or different although it is different it is but in our little community that there are so many of us. It's a normal thing. And there are hundreds of thousands of kids who are growing up with this same identity. I suppose and are being taught this from the beginning from the day. They're born they know. The story is told with love and it is told with openness and honesty. And i go forward with the belief that that my kids and all these kids are gonna be okay but you know you really don't but having the community helps and i don't know if you have something ads i was gonna say on top of that. I felt similarly remember being like this is just another thing. Our kids are going to be different in the two bombs. I remember having been on all those same thoughts but some of it is urine theory right now. There is no baby. Yeah once you have a kid. I swear to god all of that goes away because then you have a baby you have a kid and you have a curson and then you just want you want them to be the person they can be in you. Want to be the best parent you can be and you want to fix the mistakes you may. And then you're focused on your shift becomes about the kids and then all of a sudden you're like okay. I kid is going to have x. Number of siblings. Henry might have close to twenty siblings donor siblings and so i was like what do we do. We created a facebook group. And now there's some contact and they know each other and it's part of their lives and it's just this little thing and then you know it's like yeah and we and we address it in our everyday lives so it now is just part of our family's origin story. You know so comes out of this theory into reality and then you just anything. That's a little weird you address with the kids and anything. That's not just it. No longer is weird because it is your family you right but but in order to get you have to. You have to get there personally. No i love. You guys have both that before that like moment you become a mom. You're loud and proud. We are proud of our family. Proud of who we are. And i love that. Every single situation is different to every single child every kid every kid every single child has a different experience with this and some kids are like. Don't care that's fine is my mom's and some kids like my daughter have just recently told us she gets embarrassed to tell people she has two months. But you handle. Kids are totally different. Two different kids. Maxine can the kids facebook messenger app because it's really monitored and stuff and all of bunch of donor. Kids are on there and she talks to them she and he wants nothing to do with it. You know it's like it's like a really big part for her and it's nothing for him so we respect each kid and what they want but then we put things in place like camp highlight and things like that so that there are other kids around them. That are like them yes. I'll tell you about that now. I don't know that. Sarah has heard about pilot if you want to tell her about that. Yeah so it's it's a camp for kids actually in new jersey. It's once a week year. It's sleep away camp. And that's all kids from lgbtq families. Maxine started going when she was eight and henry started at eight two. They last this past summer. Obviously it's incredible and it's such a great opportunity for them to have a place to meet other kids like them with now. Us there facilitate discussion and around that that difference becomes all of their sameness. I guess my kids are going to go when they're old enough can't wait. I can't wait to send him to camp like all summer. she was so i think. Yeah so jealous. I would love that and then also i think with with kids for us to. It's interesting because it will bring about a lot of other life changes as well because the it's not as if we right now are living in a house with arrears and we're just gonna offer in the room that we haven't talked to. Are you going to continue trying to live in a van. Y you get pregnant. I think that we could also like art. Van is definitely not conducive to an infant. We have two seats. We cannot have a carseat at archie in there right now so i think if we are not done in a living on the road traveling would have to get a different vehicle and there are people that have young kids n. Live on the road like this in the same van that we do and i think that's amazing because i definitely think that those kids have probably living. I mean they're going to be awesome living a great life and they're going to be wonderful kids so it's just a matter of of what we want in life to to look like men as well and if we either get new vehicle or if we getting your i'm even one place i were piece of land and like put a little cabin on. It is definitely a little bit of a. Yeah it's gonna be different. Things will look different yemen. It's a life change no matter what. So new to seem adaptable. Like you make changes you look and see what's working. What's not and you make changes so you'll do that and on. This is the advice. My mom gave me when we were waffling back and forth. Are we going to do. We're going to do it. you're never ready you. It's never the right time. I'll tell you one other thing. I'm thinking about so listening to your audiobook talking about second parent adoption. Go my gosh ladies. I was so fired up. I'm like about to right to everybody. Because of i will adopt our child if sarah has them. Yeah yeah yeah so. I don't want to adopt my own. Real strongly about i get it. I get it i have. I have so many some tap away feelings going. Because obviously i'm still gonna process. I still stand by. It's never been more important than it is today. Because what's happening in the supreme court. Yes it just like you know. They're trying to tear down marriage. Equality and if marriage equality gets like second parent adoption will be more. You'll have to move your little swiffer van to a state where it's legal. Which is that your. But i don't want that to happen. What is the alternative like. I want to know how to solve the problem. What what would solve the problem. Like if the birth certificate like gave legal guardianship over children but it has never done that in the history. I know but it's not what i need to write in my letters. Maybe angry letters. John justice get mad. I just get mad this morning to talk about it. And i was like what is fired up. She's fired up. I am not even have a baby. And i'm like i'm not doing this doing this. But it is like you know when when straight couples have a baby and the dad is not necessarily a hundred percent on board. There's always that question. I you know you. You hear that i see it on. Tv all the time. Am i gonna put him on the birth certificate or am i not because everybody assumes that if you put the person on the birth certificate they have legal rights and they have legal responsibilities. And it's not the case however is kind of practiced in that way across the board if the man is on the birth certificate though mother can go to court for child support. So it's gray. It's weird and but when it comes to our lgbtq families no no no. That doesn't count. That doesn't care or discriminatory vulgar. Yes yes yes it is. It's tough it is tough but you make it work in your family and you should remind yourself with affirming people in your life. Yeah at a firm your lifestyle and and let me more it. That's the best you can do so get find you a gay bar. i think. That's we put in the spreadsheet fines. Gay friends well. I mean i love this for you guys. I feel like you have a plan. I love your ring so intentional about this. That you're already looking at jobs are going to give you insurance that it's going to help start this path so i can't wait to hear how this goes for you all. Thank you guys so much. This was so wonderful. I think people are going to get a lotta this. Just the out of the what. We'd have to do what we need. A lot of steps. And i like i said i listened to every of your podcast trying to take all the notes so i hope it is helpful for somebody. Now it's definitely gonna be. It's definitely gonna be thank you so much guys. Thank you very much those to that. How amazing is that idea of going to work at starbucks. Because they've got great fertility insurance this go testament to our families right there right that is next level. Planning that is next level bullshit. Think do we put money on right now. And i think this could be a good question for the social that they're going to have a baby while living in the swiffer. I think the swiffer. I think i think i think they're gonna go through the process while they're in the. Yeah i think hey may give it valiant effort you try the first year. The baby doesn't do much so no they really don't up until you know months depending on when they start walking. You've got this lake or do you think they're going to have the baby in the van.

Hey, buddy. Hey, Ike start with an apology. No, no, hold on. Now. Let's back up. This thing. I'm wasting your time my credibility shot. Let's talk about the guy who you affected, so positively. Yes, he should have been on this the story about it. Will you texted me a test from guy he told me about this? Well, I was with a friend at this this. I'm like annoying people. Tell a story and they set up it's a restaurant that has chicken. I don't have to. It's a fried chicken place. I forgot what it's called yard bird. It's a really good one. Nice. And so the waiter comes over, and he he he was just such a fan of mine, but mostly from this show, and how something I said with you really helped his self confidence. Yeah. I I we should add among because I forgot what it was. But it was something like you said something that's frightened him and me, but it was reassuring that. Things. Don't get change. You don't get more confident that you accept yourself better. Something like that. We're always who we are. Yes. But we come to terms with. It's like that the guy I think we're more about exactly and things like that. And I and I was and personality, and I was saying, you know, we don't it's hard to change personalities very, very difficult. It sort of doesn't happen. But who you are you can become more accepting bracing towards and kind to and you know, use your own strengths and weaknesses more effectively. Okay. Yeah. That's true. He's somehow he terp it'd that about confidence. He's he's cut confidence problems. But somehow some he interpreted in a way that was helpful. And I really felt good. Yeah. Good. We're way you said a video of him talk. Yeah. And he didn't seem like a guy with a confidence problem. Right. Well, he is Korean and he was adopted by a in the mid west. I forgot it was Minneapolis. So it's like he never really fit in with the Asian. The culture or the Caucasian as never never good enough for anyone growing up in Minneapolis or something where his identity, I have my friend his son is partially hearing impaired. But he never connected with the death community. So I get those those I guess some black people that thing where they don't fit into lots of people that have adopted by white deer for different kinds of mixed identities. Have trouble Blong all one place all another right? Especially wherever it was again. I think Minneapolis. It's not a diverse plays that has the culture. So that's right. He yeah. He, but he was just he sent over some free rolls. And so it was really I rarely felt good that you help somebody. Yes. There's a few people that have reached out and said things that I didn't understand like one guy at the drug store you. You you you show a way? I don't know. Maybe I'm hoping I'm hoping so how's pearls speaking of helping somebody? She's ninety and heifers mom Pearl. She's still in the retirement community, which or let me sad thing is that people are age are moving in and though. Yes sick. So you the people live underneath her are a little bit younger than me. No yet because it's you you'll have to be fifty five good like police police officers. Whatever transit authority they wanna retire soon as they can. So she feels really left out because you know, all most of a friends are dying her whole life. She's been saying it's almost over and essentially to dying of the year. But now she really is failing related, and she has some medical thing where she doesn't recognize faces up close. What is that what's probably macular degeneration? Yes. So. Shit. If she can see the face you recognize she can watch the news, she she likes. She likes the guy in CNN polo. She said what's that? I think it out. She was she maybe she was thinking Meierya call Marco Polo. She said, Rachel maddow's. She doesn't have patience for she talks fast. But she likes polo coal Kuala. Komo's yes. So so she she's paranoid. She thinks what she was in the pool that taunting her gun. Can you see me Pearl? The recognize me when they would probably just saying do you recognize says she thinks they taught her in the Paul, but Adamy, well, I don't think she looks around going that Dr drew. But my as you know, she doesn't believe you think she's nice. And she doesn't believe you. My sister. My sister's been embarrassed by her her whole life. Let that she gets wrote words wrong. Like, my friend has twins. And she goes to they come from the same wound. Could you have given birth twice and not know the word womb? So when my mother says all these Crosby, the young people who he is do, you know of him his stick was getting things wrong. Like mine bottling. My mother says, and so my sister thought I had Ron here you million her, and my mother didn't know what a podcast was. You was a she was what episode was at Gary. She became people became fans of her first one I did. And and yes, so my sister hated that. I had her back and told her Dr drew don't trust him. So my sister's first of many to warn people so for ninety year old, but she's always saying, it's almost over her whole life. So she's now a really is. So everybody Jimmy o Yang. Oh, crazy. Rich asian. Oh, he's well. He's. I don't rape for his crew anymore. He hangs out what? Oh, who's this guy on? Oh, I don't know who he no I saw I think a few days ago. He is he is. He is what's that select term? And fired is out blowing up blowing up. Well, he's got the best of both worlds in a crate. Silicon Valley is the cash as show. Yeah. Not the one like NCIS the whole America were watches, but it's the cool like adman of comedy, and he's in crazy rich, Asians, which is a number one in the world there. So oh, he he's he's. He hearings with that Blake lively. While you think of it the episode one of the episodes of Pearl 272 K, actually, I talk to Jimmy yesterday. And I was trying to cancel this because no own up to Dr ju what you did. Because I feel I've lost credibility credibility. But it's here the story. Okay. Is why we why Fred's here. There's a story behind all this. We're just getting caught up now. So there's so a while you meet this woman. Well, I I don't I didn't get catfish. No, no, no. It's all now. Let me just say set this up. I say I've seen videos of women yelling at you. What is that all about care? Can you put one of those are they Facebook where we're carries talking about do they wear on the where they put on Instagram this this woman, she it's. You know, let me ask you about a I know I'm going all direct T AA now to a lot of people when they're in a or the spiritual program make it like, it's Jesus, and I don't judge. But you don't get it together. I I'm spiritual and she's like that with a and spirituality like you do the work. I would I would suggest that being harsh and aggressive some toward someone like Christians being unchristian. But don't allow people do that. They can get a little ties sanctimony is. Save me. You we call them book thumpers. Yes. Yes. I though I says she's just yes. So I know another woman just like her screaming at you things beacon, yoga, whatever that is safer and fuck you don't get better and don't do yoga go, right? And so she's angry not angry with you for drinking smoking pot. Their anger, not doing yoga swear chill. I know two women. This one is the most angry spiritual person because you don't do the work. And like she does. So I then she started trying to be funny. But but yes, it was hard to why would have put it up on your plate. If you can find it. So that's the background of how are treating you these days. And so when you when I heard about this other one coming to town that you wanted to talk by thought oh shit. So this once actually happened once before where I thought I met a girlfriend, I said, a boy can do a podcast. Fred Stolle of medical. I thought I met someone really cool and attractive and quirky. But then she ended up she we actually went to you met that we did a live podcast. Remember, she got up, and there was a guy staying with her and he's any but his dog and she couldn't kick him out. So I was dating a woman who's ex boyfriend was staying on the floor of like a dog because every she up on the set. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. So I thought I Dr drew I'm seeing a young woman. She's in porn. But he didn't know she was in porn, and she gets a minute. I'll come on slowdown. We're all right. So few years ago. You find the yelling is this is the video and question the woman, balancing like a big piece of wood on her head. Yes. Yes. What I saw another one where she's driving or something. She would just say get have fun. Go to can we play go to Halloween and look for the one with the driving. When when she I don't wanna give bliss ity. Maybe not come on here. I'll people are gonna go to your. Website, and you're his I'll put it up on my. I'll do Andy killer. Always liked liked using an expression, I'll penetre pin the tweet penetre. So basically, what happened was uninstigated when I first got on it a few years ago, you notice when someone likes everyone thinks go who is this. So I see, oh, it's an attractive woman, and she had like a fashion blog or it wasn't sexual. I didn't think but there was one where she was naked the ass and shower, and it was interesting. And and so she saw I liked everything. Hey, I didn't mean to like all yours, and and and you know, and she she had these kind of blogs, rants, and and I didn't think she was a stripper because she. Yeah. There were no piercings and the Bonnie Ryan white lion. No troops. Piercing piercings are grungy nece, or you know, sh- and she cleans trip. And why would she reach after me? And I think she's heard me on podcast or and stuff. And so so you're you're looking at her Instagram you're seeing her Ashbury naked in the Instagram. I guess you're somehow learning that she's a stripper. I guess we would talk aware. You know? I don't remember how lead this many phone or I think so this is like three four years ago. All right. You start talking stripper. Okay. He's a stripper and she would send writings that. She was doing blogs about it stripper. I don't wanna give away who she is. And and but she's in she's in another city where. It was a more artsy city. What am I what's the point when I'm trying to say soci-, you know, see today a thin line where you could be stripper porn. But you're also on comedic rant. You know? What I mean, this someone who I came across it Ditto full blown porn, and she's like a comedian. And what's my points? Okay. So point is a lot of crossover, right? Exactly. Exactly. So I thought she one of these artsy comedian stripping but performance trailer comedians, but we do so basically. Then I didn't see her until I was opening for normal, Donald briefly. Who's that? When I saw you guys way back then. Yeah. But but she wasn't there. She's I mean. But I mean, that's when I yeah. Yeah. So she we're in a city we were performing and this was. And she we went out to eat would norm and she took us to a bookstore. And she's really well read again, if someone gets me they're not into Joe, Ian, Anthony, I don't want him saying, we're we're from the farmers. The. The comic strip. I can't think of the word. I'm trying to say, you know, Greg kinda. Comedy cellar. I don't. Talking about. So basically. I didn't care for her for two years because I don't know. I think she had a boyfriend. People you just refrained refreshingly. But that's that. That's that. Okay. And all of a sudden, you know, I get a text. I don't recognize the number. Hey, it's me. She goes, I'm in porn. Now. A really, and she was she was hinting at it that she she may try it. So I was checking out her stuff. And and wasn't you know, some of it. I like I'm from a different generation. I don't like when women choked they sped or the smacking them or or unity meter that get smack bad, and but she's very attractive and she would come to town once in a while. And you know, so you know, I would give him my critiques. No, no. I'd say light horns. Yes. I like the ones that are not, you know, you're nice their nice third. She was really cool. She got my generation, and she got we have the same sensibilities a lot, and you know, a story or and I never liked strippers a strip club. Story Daniel used to come on love line. And she came on when she was a performer in the later when she was a director producer of pornography. She goes, look, I learned how to make progress for women and men that's what I wanted to do is make porn for women. She goes, and here's the here's the deal men wanna see people having sex women wanna know, why those people like each other so much and they have them in the story. I that's why I don't like strip clubs. It's impersonal. I wanna believe the story. Even if it's so fake like really was a cop throw off their. Okay. I do what you notice that you notice that in male strip clubs every male stripper has a job when he walks into the he's a fireman. He's a. Then he loses his job. And he's a stripper when women when men watch strippers those women have job. It's I never their job as stripper. That's john. I never like when you turn on the click, and it's just sex. I there dues one outfit guy. This is how sick I know the name dirty debutante s- where he went interview people promise, it's their first time and I loved what? Yes, or yes. So I'd love I thing. We'll talk about some other time where I did you know what they call that reenactments scenarios. So even if it's fake story. I like I like this a personal thing like, and you know, you rather than so basically what happened was she? She was in LA and she texted me. Hey, you want me to come over a scene got cancelled because they didn't have the the scenery ready. It was a girl on girl like one that you just put the scenery like a bookmark in the background. What what the set wasn't ready that me? Yes. So ports. It was. So she came over and. She's she's a cool person. I didn't I don't start dating. Well, I thought we were for how long. Well, defined dating. I thought it was more. What sleep together he said. Did I think leaping together? Well, yes. Well, let me tell you the story. So it's I never when she came over thought anything would happen. I'm almost thirty years older than her. I never thought I she wasn't a porn person. I saw it out. You know what I'm saying? We talked about your and books about loneliness. What nothing what about my as your custom to seek out porn star. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. I so. No, it wasn't like someone. Hey. I'm I'm not even when masturbate I don't have fantasies. I think Rian I relive reimburse. I like how I didn't pay. No people reading relive people. I ready was or okay. You know what I'm saying? I don't basically this one little started going this when started going. Yeah. Yeah. So I when shame over. Yeah. Well, she she she somehow mentioned the sugar daddy like was texting what to sugar daddy. What does that mean you too sugar day? She gotta sugar. Daddy. Well, I know they can have a few, and I go could I be Suga daddy 'cause she this guy buys her address. Sometimes. And I and she goes, okay. And and and is that when you figured we're dating. Well, I'm I didn't have to I we we went to a dispensary, and it was really like again. I don't think the sexually. We were talking and she was getting concepts. Like sometimes I feel like I'm forty forty years in the future. There's a new are kind of movie, and and it's like an art house. But it's about LA in the two thousand eighteen and I'm some weird lonely kind of character actor guy in a movie in Navarre and two thousand and you're changing pot for sex. Yeah. No. Well, so basically, and she did something never happen on pod face morphed where she looked like a different person. She looked like, you know, you or, you know, Dick Cheney, but I'm saying she she looked her face looked different. Okay. So then what did that happen? You know know, what the edible sound like a weird thing. Oh with my mother because maybe she has more on the MP's own multiple personality type dissociate disorder. Well, yeah. Because so we went in my room. And it was it was great. Because again this again like with my porn. I like a story for millionaire de not like, hey anyone. Hugh comey. So. So basically, you know, we would. Text and call, but it wasn't even sexual like she she wasn't even sexting. It was in. The buyer pot. It wasn't a sugar. Daddy, though. No, no. He's just thing align, okay night and supplier with anything. She went back to the town. She's from okay. And well, okay. We did talk about things we thought, you know, sexual we did talk. But it wasn't like, you know, and so she so we didn't have full sex. So, but I got tested. It was weird watching a porn because you thinking. Oh, I could do this with her. And this is the person. She's she is looking at me because she wants to do things. Yeah. So is really weird. Why? And and I knew it put me in a bad reality. Because if I do mess around with their it's going to really break me because I won't be able to be with some of the yen is I been late though. Our men jealous and weird about that. Yeah. Or just just how do I go back to the woman who I have to see her kids plays. And the kid has a problem and kicked me, you know, I tried being normal try dating single moms. And but but anyway, how do I go back to that Susie Esme men world? I think of like. Saying they're all like the one on Susie estrin. No, I'm being stupid, I'm exaggerating. But but was I saying, so okay. So she I she told me what to get tested because in porn tested. And I was thinking I thinking I didn't. I was so thrilled to do stuff even without that. But I right. I want to you know, know, what it's like. And I thought I'm your age, and I don't may not have a lot of years left and just have adventures. And so she was supposed to come out. And and I went to this place to get tested with the talent. And I thought I had a lie. So yes, you talent. No, they asked if I was tallow my God. How funny? Yes. 'cause it's where all and it's this database, if you know probably would have been a write in the lie, you know, and database, I go to a place and the doctor looks like Ricky Gervais swith tattoos alone his arms, and and it's you know, in its porn people and database. This where she told me to go in the database report home. I. Jerry Fritz stores in the porn database. And I didn't know why. There was a reason. Why can't just do it a doctor this they tell you the next day? And so I go that it did you want the gold panel thing? I got I don't know. And I called her and she says get the all the expensive one hundred twenty five or something. Yeah. It's a cheap and the quickest, and it's where all the producers go to see who's getting tested. Well, some some thing. So you see all the weird people air. And and I said, oh, I forgot him. I supposed to fast the day before. Because none of this guy. You see that? He was on coke nut. I mean, it doesn't matter. So, you know, so even though I know I don't have anything you always hear about this is dormant in the sky or your, you know. Yes. So it was weird. Because like they text you what happened. So did the way way way way you Jimmy when I tell him the story. Was giving all the salacious details. And it came on your fucker. Did you Jimmy? So that's like the character of the craziest. Yeah. Yes. Okay. So what's the question? I'm babbling too much. So we supposed to come out negative Belushi. We had this whole thing that she was going to come out. And I thought it was like a. Even though I know we're not in a relationship. I thought it's a relationship as I understand it. 'cause she was she she was really she's really cool. And I thought I see her when she comes out. I'd stock the place up with snacks. I didn't have snacks less time. And she wanted me to do dabs, and she was going to bring someone else. And and she's reasom I thought so homeboy she built it all up, and and I wanted to go on here 'cause sometimes she cancels trip she's supposed to come out before. But she said she had post traumatic stress and she wanted to bring her on veer. So I could sort of felt on her. See what's wrong with her? But she wanted it. She thought it'd be great. And and okay, I'll going to be honest. Okay. I. I was even thinking that. I knew. So repetitious when I say rashly, I knew we're not a couple. But I thought maybe this is how I could be a couple as I understand it. Like, I feel like meaning it could be something. I really felt there was a connection. She got me. I didn't hear from her for days. Did you mad at me? No way your door you so. And I thought maybe whereas now where it now is she's been in town week. It has an. Onto any of the texts. So she's here. But you're not seeing her. No, ghosted me. And that's and I feel I feel all and you were going to bring over here. And we're gonna talk about this relationship. Well, we're gonna talk about. Yeah. I wanted reassurance. That now I think my listeners really want this. I wanted reassure anything teller. She needs to come up here the list. I want to reassurance that the testing would be okay. Without a condom. What dabs were someone said? If you do it you go chasing the next. Hi, Gary, there, people are gonna wanna this resolved in some way, either that or they're gonna want him to do dabs on the show. She I was going on. I thought I'm older why not have fun do dabs. We with this beautiful woman, the condom, and I wanted to get the, but she wanted she she. Okay. This is this is this is why brought it up to her going on your show that I really thought that there was something like I'm the middle aged neurotic comedians sort of with the young porn actress. But it'd be different if it was a show like, Bert Kreischer. I know he's just throwing out across dude or buffalo Barrio entities, bro. Guys, more comedy. But I thought genuine fund this with each facet, and and I really want to I I wanted to we talked about actually not a stupid reality show. Like, Honey, I'm home. Oh, his my replica post. The oh, I'm tired. You know, or hey, you know, where you left at dildo out. You know, I really thought I really thought to explore what I thought was going to be something even over yet. Who knows? But this is what I'm guessing you're not being crazy, which is good. I thought this is something and I thought. Put out this dynamic out there me and her, and I feel I totally lost your credibility that I didn't come through. And and me without her is in good without her. Excellent. It's great now. I think we've wetted this is why she's not coming on. Oh. What a wrap it up. Yeah. No question. I was just short attention. But go ahead Hawaii's show coming. This is what I think two things I think I think she got cold feet that someone probably should know shouldn't know that maybe this something there, and I think she disassociated itself with that. The other speculation is a few other times she was supposed to come out and she didn't because she was separating post traumatic stress. So from what not her this is what I wanted to talk to you too about because I wanted understand it, not her father her first marriage. I don't know people traumatic your post traumatic stress symptoms can come out after a second trauma. So the means there was an earlier trauma. Probably the got activated second. So basically, I'm more embarrassed this happened, drew because what what am I expecting? I mean, it was it was silly. As Jimmy said, the only thing I'm out is no money nothing. Just little money that. Yes thing. But then, you know, you're testing no, I now I know I wanted to walk around with it on my iphone to women at the grove. Hey, Lee gleaning gold McCullough profile of the talent database. Yeah. They'll be calling me. So. We're what models? So I think either. Look this this severe pathology. I I don't know if this is a generalization one guy, no data distributor said one hundred percent. I'm have abuse. And I think with point so this. So that's why I'm not mad at her. I this Gary which question do you smoke weed? Whole wheat story. I remember it. But I'm asking if he doesn't act regular base. Well, this is what I what I do know I've been taking more edibles because why why did you ask? And you've never done a dab. Is that correct? I did what I did. But she had a different way to do it. But I actually I did do it. But I never did it with two women. And I know why do you? I just I don't know. It sounds like a good idea. They'll play on a different planet. Okay. Dabs our superintendents for people who smoke a lot. Yes. So if you don't smoke a lot of pot, and you do even one dab you're going to be I different level. I think I did want smoke at this place, and I had to sit on a couch, and I couldn't move for hours. Yeah. But I yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I was all. But lately, what's you pick it up. Maybe a little too much these I had the opposite thing which. I don't think that he is. I don't think he's dabbling in things that will make the davick. Someone happen. He's going to be comfortable. Maybe the maybe the thing is that. I know someone else who does that ABS and his friend said because he's been doing we'd for thirty years. And I think and I my friend. He said you'll be chasing that high. So that's why I was concerned. Now, I want you to tell her that you've been up here. We heard the story. And now, we're all intrigued we wanna meet her. We went to interview her. No, no of I think that she she's afraid of something. Well, tell on her terms you can set the guidelines, and we'll figure out what I don't even know if I want to come on out, and let me tell the view is if they're still listening. I I'm not following. I on Twitter in case you're trying to like look who I follow. What porn st
