How is Prince Harry So 'Normal'?

"It's so crazy to me that we're in this world. Where prince harry's like casually on dax shepard's podcasts. That would never have happened a few years ago and to me that is such a small thing but it's so representative of really there into la life. Into hollywood i don't wanna say into normalcy because none of this is normal but just even the ability to be able to go on a podcast. Which would have never happened interesting. That you say this shift into normalcy. Because that is the thing that always surprises me about prince harry especially with what we've seen of him recently. The interview with oprah the new show us with over coming out about mental. Health carpool karaoke. He did the normalcy of him. Is it just catches me off guard every single time and obviously his life whether it was a royal life or in. La life is not normal by any means. But there's just something about what he's saying and the way he speaks and the references he makes and the things. He's aware of in terms of media and entertainment. It just catches me off guard. Because i don't expect him to be aware of any of those things when you think of prince harry in the lifestyle that he's lived. And what your view of the royals are you. Expect that all of these funny references that he makes talking about joe rogan talking about when he was games courtney new the fresh prince of bel air themes on you expect these things to be things that are just go over his head entirely because he wouldn't be aware of them and so for him to be talking about these things in such a normal way was my biggest takeaway from the whole interview.

Comedian John Mulaney checks into Pennsylvania rehab for alcohol, cocaine addiction

"For cocaine and alcohol abuse. Reports say that Mulaney checked into a Pennsylvania rehab center and is totally down to make himself better. Early, And in an earlier interview, Mulaney mentioned that he has had struggles with drugs and alcohol since his early twenties, so they're not sure if Mulaney is still the comedian. Excuse me, It's not sure if he will still be a part of the SNL as a host as they were in as he was supposed to in November. I believe this what is the same? My apology, So I guess that that's up in the air, But as for right now, he just wants to get his life together. You know, it's funny because when this news

"So I thought, it was really funny the arms race to get the most famous people in the world and animated roles and that kids didn't even give because they don't know that. That's Mandy Patinkin. You remember the first time you recognize the voice actor in animated movie trying to think I think it was robin for me. Is Robin Williams in Fern Gully. Oh I recognize them in a cause marketing though yeah because it was like, Robin, Williams is the genie in Aladdin. And then. I remember being one of the only kids that knew he was doing and Ed Sullivan, impression? And like Nixon. Whoever else he did. So, you're saying about where you went from there ten years of thinking about Rio to thinking about that sketch for a while I've been thinking about that idea. I did it as a standup joke once, but it was a little. It had a bit of vitriol towards the people in the audience, many of whom take their kids to these movies and I was really going after Rio to, and after a while Rio was not in theaters anymore and I was still bitching about it. So I put it in my chest of drawers of grievances. Grievances of the privileged, and then America said, why don't we do it as a focus group? So America gets all the credit. So then. You sort of just like right down jokes you have on the subject area of that or did you start with an outline or did you start with jokes and then plug into that wrote itself very quickly because I'd been saying all those sentences. Like verbs like I think we would act it out a little like as your hand. If you thought it was fun when Dax Shepard was the bird and the joke of like when there's a joke for parents, you know like I did not sleep with that woman and you like, okay why is that in Aladdin? We wanted to hit that. So actually wrote that in like one divinely inspired news, right? I want to go through some of the jokes and you can tell me if anything specific inspired it or you can say it was just the thing that he thought. But so it's a sequel taboo which came out in two, thousand nine before any of you were born without a joke you already had do you have a specific memory of that but that's a bit rare rare of a phenomenon depict on but we did I think it was Kung Fu Panda I've found out the most recent Kung Fu panda had significant distance from the last Kung Fu Panda and I thought that was interesting because kids would know the last ones but then I found out kids like to watch. Anything. And the the it's their favorite movie. It's all their favorite movies of all time. Yes. Well that was me after I left the movie was my favorite movie after I saw Wayne's world. That was my favorite movie after I saw the freshmen with Marlon Brando and Matthew Broderick that was my favorite movie. Any movie I saw my favorite movie. I'd walk home thinking about it and be like I'll never be the same. The joke that I think Tyler says, which is the woman said I can leave at five, but it can leave at five thirty. It's Interesting. Because in a regular sketch. People don't say things that are not about what's happening in this sketch, but it's interesting to have a person raised their hand and then have a side tangent of their own world that to me was an observation of kids who might just tell you a fact that you don't need to know not an annoying way. But just might tell you like the woman. I. Leave it five but I could leave at five thirty young. Okay. Or my dad had a fishing boat and you're like, okay I don't know where to go with that. It also kind of based on degrade Tyler Burke who delivered the line. He has many non sequiturs and can toss off a fact or thought that might not be saying we're talking about but they're they're fascinating. How did you land on the voice actors? A lot of people who are bouncing around like what makes Elizabeth Banks I think it felt was the most spot on of a type of voice like how did you was there a lot of back important those choices? Not A lot we. We. Well. We didn't want someone like Jack Black who still identified with kung-fu Panda or like you know John Mullany was the spider hammers. It was when people talk about all the time. So we were going for that. Jeremy. Renner. We were we were going for Richard kind in excise inside out although I think a lot of kids knew he knew it was Richard Guy he gets recognized for that role. I think we nailed it with WHO's in them. Yeah. Mark Ruffalo Anna Kendrick Deanna Kendrick, and Elizabeth. Banks was a lot of fun and the DAX Shepard of DAX Shepard Jeremy? Renner being hard to recognize Mandy Patinkin and Jacob knows that mmediately who is that kid? Who knows? That's man? That's our Mandy is that in your head is there specific kid who's like? There's one kid in a group that will know that and for whatever reason that's the world like when you imagined whoever that is who you thinking of. Thinking of me, but that's what I would have been like. But in the in the body of like young Simon. Rich Yeah. In terms of the cast, you know you talk about seeing dozens and dozens of kids before sort of landing on the fifteen. Maybe need to know exactly at the time, but now that you've worked with them. Have you realize what you were looking for When we started auditioning a big boost of faith in the project came back to me because I realized I was looking for kids that were super talented but then could converse and didn't feel like for lack of a better term stage kids I at one point wanted to cast it in Iowa I said because I thought that's where real people were I. Don't know I'm from Illinois I don't know why thought that. It's like something out of like a forties movie where producers like we're going to go to Iowa and get a real person. But I was worried that kids with too much experience might somehow be you know I don't know who Dr Medicare Rooney something none of them were Mickey Rooney. They were pros they were extremely talented. But when you call cut, they were kids and you could talk to them like regular kids was it hard to get kids to act sort of the way you wanted like did you have to explain the tone to them or they ever like what is this? No not much a couple lines. The hardest thing to convey to them was delivered this line like you're upset about it, but also you don't even care. And they were like, what now's like go like you know what forget it like when you're really mad but also your so depressed and tired you can't even say it and they'd look at me but they do it correctly but it was not that that was an emotional memory they didn't have but they really knew how to toss like Avery Bradley. Saying in acknowledgement in the focus group about the fake news joke I loved and Lender Sutton was very good at tossing those off. So it was eyler in the Google sketch when he says Michael Time was three and he was dead at three exactly how I hope for it in general is hard to explain. But what were you going for in terms of? The like fourth wall of this sketch and so much. I think of sketches in terms of words, people playing characters, and they're in this scenario where here it's not exactly clear if you are yourself and if the kids are also you and if you're partly out of it in a way, that's like almost closer to like a skit of like we're all us but we're, GONNA do this scenario. Did you sort of consider that distinction of like how much of a like essentially a fourth wall do we wanNA build between this or do we want to sort of feel just.

"Jessica Fox. Each episode, a guest comes on to play a clip one of their jokes and then discusses how they wrote it and how it fits into what they're trying to do with their comedy and this is an episode. Actually it's one hundred episode. Okay it's not but it's our one hundredth like real episode is our one hundred classic good one long form interview our one hundredth G. O. ally globally. So before I continue let me just say thank you for listening seriously I created this podcast to have conversations about comedy that I always wanted to hear and a small part of me was wordy. No one else would want to hear them. I try to create a space I would like to spend time and so thank you. Thank you. Thank you for dropping by. To mark the occasion. I wanted a guest that felt significant and I succeeded my friend and yours John Milady besides the fact that this appearance will tie John with Roy Wood Junior for the most total appearances on this podcast with three I'm not sure if this podcast could exist without John. Five years ago I interviewed John for Vulture. It was the first real interview. He did after mullany his short-lived Fox sitcom very publicly faltered and is right before the release of his second, our special the Comeback Kid. John was surprisingly candid about it's failing and what he learned from it and a lot of people ended up reading the interview. So besides helping night, my passion for interviewing that interview proved to earn me a lot of trust in comedy community trust that has allowed me to have the conversations about the inner workings of joke writing that previously was not for public consumption. Since then John has become so frequent successful it's nuts. He's hosted SNL three times. He had an unbelievable improbable run Broadway with Oh hello he sold out seven nights at Radio City Music Hall on his gorgeous tour with him going on to win an emmy for the specially filmed one of those nights with all this industry clout. What John decided do well, of course, film may throwback children's musical variety show for Netflix's John Mullany and the sack lunch bunch for those who haven't seen it I can own described sort of tribute to shows like sesame street three, two, one contact, and free to be me with metaphor chefs often put dishes on their menus that the don't just try to recreate the taste of something they ate as a kid, but instead try to recreate the feeling of the memory of eating the dish using current techniques. John used his present day comedic perspective and and fifteen kids who are currently between the ages of eight and thirteen to recreate what being a kid felt like for hit. The result has since been nominated for two emmys outstanding writing for variety special and outstanding variety special. The clip I'm GONNA play doesn't need much context as a focus group John is playing the movie producer. The kids are playing kids. It's very funny. So here is John Mullany and.

Now, obviously, you're following the presidential campaigns. You had a great bit about trump way before years before he was pretending to run for president. Yes, he was still an odd person back. In two thousand and seven when he was just doing celebrity apprentice, and it was like Oh that's about the weirdest he'll ever be. Top that really did know but I I'm repeating myself, but what? I said back then was that to me like trump is not a rich man. Donald trump is like a hobo imagines a rich man to be. Like. Trump was walking around under an underpass, and he heard some guy like. Oh, as soon as my number comes in I'm going to put up tall buildings with name on. Fine Golden Hair. And a TV show where I gene Simmons with my children and trump with. My. On this so far well, it's in keeping with him because when. He makes a decision. He must think to himself like what would a cartoon rich person to? Run for president either US can single lick not a bit. Yeah, and we had to the incredible composer for this ally. Yes, we sing or iphones, and then just send him a singing. Yes, and what what I would do is, I would take melody that already existed, and was copy written, and then I would add my own words and I go. How about this in Eli would say well? That's already a song. and. You had to listen to me. Sing, so I have all these voice memos of we actually have a voice just to give people a sense of exactly how how dire! Dire this was for a report. Let's let's say I'm legit embarrassed. Hello ally. Mullany I'm losing my voice on tour so I was picturing it like this, and you don't own any land just the in the. Neighbors cooking cash and your other neighbor died when you. Look at that time is got, but you'd never give up your spot. Pat! Getting. I'm proud of myself. You all know this. But my grandmother and sets mom. We're in a local production in marblehead Massachusetts of a hospital benefit musical revues day with me. And it was directed by a young Tommy tune. Yeah, it was called pills, poppin and it's. Saved the hospital. It's no laughing at. But you know you've talked to your mom about it I've talked to my nanny times New England stories always sound fake. Yeah, they sound like limericks. Like a man named Tommy tune. Off.

Oh, pills, a pop it in Marblehead, Massachusetts. It's real. The thing that you think would be the most fun to host would be the rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Yes. That is the only truly fun award show. Yeah I don't know if you all watched the HBO rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Annually. No absolutely no one. It happens every year or does it. I'm not sure if it. If it didn't no one would notice, they induct about like a half dozen ungrateful. into an association, no one ever asked for in Cleveland and if I could describe it. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Think of it like a wedding. If every speech was given by the bride's ex boyfriend. Every band comes in with some old grievance, and all their speeches filled with bile from like thirty years before about like equipment, bands or something, and the Golden Globes the Oscars the Oscars had a big weird thing happened last year. That's one glitch that's on a night where each winner does not know until the moment the envelope. Then they have to go give a speech in front of ten million people that should have millions of glitches, the rock and roll hall of fame induction bands no for months that they're going to be inducted and they give a speech. They blow it as. They all get up there. They don't know how to stand. They've been standing on stage for twenty years and they're dislike side. Yeah. I guess. The GonNa have all the fame which we think is being asked. They always undercut night. and. We're like we don't want this. This was for you. I heard that someone asks you. Why Comedians Make Fun of Florida Florida I met a very nice young woman, sixteen year old girl. Came up to me after the show and she said I wanna be a comedy writer I WanNa Right SNL and I said I used to right there, and she said I know. That's why I'm talking to you about it and. She said. Why do comedians always go after Florida and I was like That's a good point. We Kinda, do she's like? Yes, you do. She said there was a Jeremy Renner sketch when he does it. SNL where he played the mayor of Tampa and when he said I'm the mayor of Tampa. Everyone laugh automatic. And I, said to her like I said well. It's not fair that we laugh at Florida I. Said Comedy Writers Are Often Lazy, and so it's like a good example of a place when you need a few. That paper towels I'd be like what he said. What are you costco, not a good job, not a good joke about. Easy! So Florida is the Costco of. UPSETTING PEOPLE Like you like it's just everything at once. You'd never make Florida on purpose. 'cause you'd never put it together. Like a dinner party. You wouldn't be like. Hey, you know. We should invite a bunch of elderly Jewish people, and some really cool gay people from south. And a bunch of conservative Cubans and a woman that looks like Bret. The hitman hard-driving a fan. And possum and an alligator and twelve serial killers, and the richest people in the world, trying not to pay taxes and at the end of the dinner party. They decide who the president is. Just wrote this years ago. Yeah, and you didn't pick it. I you're the head of writing. I was ahead of writing, but I thought I remember saying I'm like save it for when he comes back. On a wait till one of these writers improbably Hosa You're a les MIS fan as a child, so this was I should point out. The sketch called Bob stor. Yes, and it was It was to the Les Mis Soundtrack.

He's lived in the diner for forty years and the only music to accompany. That is les Mis Arab. So what we did was we wrote it by listening to the les, Miz soundtrack, and then we changed the words of the songs and we made them about being lobster. Sketch writing and that was at the table. In two thousand and ten. Yeah and I remember it was done. It wasn't like you were mad, but everyone was just like guys. And then we moved on, and now it's on TV right for.

And he's not everybody by the way we were all aware of my levels. I'm like Louis Farrakhan. I mean a lot to a small group of people but I've never sat across from someone who reminds me less of Louis Farrakhan than you but now he's a standup bright suit and I am yelling and I'm certain of what I'm saying and I'm often wrong. Actually Chapelle said like he said the greatest Speaker and Americans Louis Farrakhan and I watched some clips on Youtube and I was like yeah.

Mullany in the sack lunch bunch is streaming right now on Netflix. And I'm joined right now on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast by the producer of this. Fine podcast Maggie Law. Hey Maggie and the producer of the interview with John Mullany for Sunday today. Sylvie haller self. Hello so here's my where. I was coming from this interview. We Love John Mullany in our house. And when I say we I mean me my wife. My twelve year old daughter and particularly my ten year old son. We want a road trip this summer and almost all we listened to or Mullany. Stand up specials. I was telling mullany that beforehand. He's like you know it's funny. I hear that a lot. He's like and I don't think of myself as being like a clean comic but he doesn't use a lot of profanity. Hughes's occasionally to punctuate but it's so smart in so perceptive and so good that Christine and I have been like you know what they can here a couple of those because it's worth it for the rest so we I was a huge mullany fan coming in and even bigger mullany fan walking out me too. I listened with my son. Who's twenty so he can take some of the saltier jokes but what I love about him is like an my son and I sort of analyze? This is how throws this thing out there. This weird observation and then he does really sort of twisted look at it and then he brings home with this thing. That's so familiar. And you're like that does relate to my life I love it like the quicksand thing coup. Who has children? I did worry about quicksand. Yes as a problem anvils and quicksand and every cartoon made truly. It's not that big a problem. No but his observation of that like oh. I just love that familiar like Oh God you get me. You get talked about his family to are they. Okay with being brought into it and he was like it. Turns out people like being famous debone. You're saying things that don't reflect terribly well in them I think the bit that people if you don't even if you don't follow him closely the bit you may know as the Horse in the hospital bit which is how he explains the trump years which I thought was a clever way to go at it if you don't WanNa be seen as a political comedian or partisan some way he's explained the phenomenon of Donald trump running the country as like a horse loose in a hospital just to say we've never seen this before so no one knows how to react to a horse being loosen hospital. Maggie you listen to the whole thing getting ready for the PODCAST EH. Jumped out at you. I am one of those people I think who was a little bit unfamiliar with John Mullany but after listening to a hundred percent GONNA go watch. All of his netflix specials. Now is hilarious conversation But I think my favorite part was probably the very end when you brought to him a headline and you had to read that. He was being called a snack on the kids. What does it mean to be a snap? it means to be physically appealing. I would say to the general population so I immediately went out and looked at the photo myself and I would say he's looking like a smack. Snacking was especially for him. I think the whole point was like he's this sort of stand up. Nobody really sees him that way. He was like Black T. shirts. Yes we should explain because you obviously couldn't see if you're just listening to the PODCAST. It was a Huffington Post article as I was doing research that I've just been made me laugh because as you say it was so countered his whole thing and he posts a man instagram. He's at a t shirt with his hair. Tussle a pair of glasses and search whissle. He didn't think twice about. He's with Andy. Sandberg and the Huffington Post Road entire article. About what a snack? He looked partially you reading to hit. You're looking like a snack and let me just say you couldn't tell listening deeply uncomfortable. I thought he'd be like Oh. No I'm a whole meal it was like I don't like that was not funny to him. Please please stop free So yeah he's I I think I also love Sylvia his story his heroes Conan Conan started as a writer on the simpsons on snl and then got his own late night show and became Conan O'Brien so he was a hero to writer types because he liked broke through and made it and mullany actually has done what Conan did in a different way. He was a writer. You know he got that phone. Call from Seth and said I want to be clear. You're just a writer you're not GonNa appear on Saturday night live. And he was fine with that and now he's John Molina. Same with part of that story was he went back he was like with Mama. Dinner went back to your said. That's how cone started that amazing but he is kind of living the writer to star dream. That was cool but I think he he kept referring to when he goes back as the host on. Snl that and you you were saying like how does that feel. You're walking up walking down the steps you walk into the state and he kept saying. I'm a writer I'm just a writer. I'm just a writer right like he has not In his own mind entered into some other realm as far as who his what his role is there. Yes and I I just have to say. The Stefan origin story is so good because we had bill Hader cast his side of it. And then to hear more Malays Club promoter slash drug dealer who and the and the starbucks Barista wherever the Baristas from. I mean that's like to me. That's the essence of SNL. You and another person. Little Room character dreaming something out that becomes this pop cultural phenomenon sharing it with the world Funny do all right guys. Thanks very much. I enjoyed this one especially with.

"john mulaney" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist

"The character came about the Soundbite thing I used to say was I met someone who promoted clubs. This was not a friend of mine or a or a good person There were during the Bloomberg years and he was mayor of New York. Thanks for watching And he would do fun. Things like cover the city of Beige carpeting. It'd be like take your shoes off. That's a new law what we do and He's about to lose presidential nomination. Anything so I do. But he wouldn't come out. I definitely wouldn't got him out. I'd like I like I like him. He's GonNa fight currently today with Donald Trump on twitter about their height. It's I got a high level now. Trump is taller. That's the debate. He wins that round. GotTa Give Donald J. You're right on that one taller than Mike. Bloomberg will a mayor of New York. Be The president. I think Democrats think he's The guy who can be donald trump ability. Sure yes and why am I even azure those hypoth- those old political exactly but Kennamer? It's like well. Who'S THE PRESIDENT NAN? Rate we ask ourselves could Garfield become press. If enough people rooted in could we then sort of animate Garfield and some clips of the oval lots say sort of is like nothing can surprise you anymore. So yes I think. He has a chance that he has a chance. Yes but you were talking about your club promoter friend briefly it does make me more than for the chance that Ed Koch could've been. Oh you would have been a great president. Will I remember George Zinke loves and I John Mullany Lot dead? Because I knew he was in Chicago. Why did I know the mayor of New York was because he was so annoying? Everyone in the country. Who WOULD YELL AT PEOPLE? There he had to get reelected and they'd be yellow. Why are you closing down the hospital? Got Lady you're not going to get what you want out of your mind. You're fine and say this constituent. Yes and he'd get reelected reelected God rest his soul And and yes he was I openly annoying mare and was that was that a George Line. Glynis say that. I'm sure you have a good one. But what were we talking? We're talking about Stefan the club promoted that. So yes so. This guy During the Bluebird years there was a program called silent nights. This is true where they were shutting down a lot of bars and clubs So that it would be quieter. I guess right Which that make the streets safer? I don't know Michael Whatever you want. It's your city you don't like us. Drinking twenty four ounce cherry cokes by all means. Take our soda but there was this thing that happened because of these Bloomberg laws. Where there'd be pop-up clubs there'd be. There's a boat on the Hudson River. It looks like it's abandoned. There's a party. They go there now and I knew a guy that would promote these and by that I mean I bet he was drugged right. We all and so he would describe them and what I liked about it. Say That thing where and then he would say things that are not things that happen and he would always say this place is going to have everything or they're going to have everything Because it's like that thing where there's like like old men in wedding dresses and just like goats and and it made me laugh every time Like what what shared right what. What shared memory. He thought we had what existence is like that. They'll be everything there. Everything old minute wedding dresses. Yea Thing so he tells me about these crazy departures parties. I would not go because I am boring And so I always thought he was a very funny person and would i. Would I would do that. Cadence with Bill. A Lot This place has everything and Bill live near a coffee place. He would go to every day. Where the Barista was the mannerisms of fun? He would cover his face a lot with his hands and then One Time Bill said. Where do you live? And he said I live on the lower lower lower east side and and bill said Daddy said like parents are in town so that guy and the. Let's call on the drug dealer than I knew. We're we're merged and we wrote it as a sketch that actually aired late in the show Where where Stefan has brother? And they're pitching a movie together and One brother's ideas are normal and stiffens Stefan And it went fine do terribly. But at the end of the season Seth Meyers and Doug Abeles from updates. And would you try? That character is like a like a time out New York almost recommendations guy. I thought okay you know and we worked on it. We thought it was really funny but it was so weird and everything was in. It was culled from trying to get inside the mind of this twisted man so I remember thinking like this is really funny. This is just absolutely saying and I asked the head writer of update. I said when this gets cut. Could we try it again next week because we put a lot of work into it and then The first time bill did it killed two and he started laughing and and so people got excited about that. Because and I do it happens. It's just Some people criticize it Those people I mean I understand You can there's other things to be upset about but he would say and you know that's part of the reason. He was laughing as new material that he had not seen. Yeah so he's reacting like the rest of us absolutely so we never wanted it to be that thing where where you're laughing and then you realize people like it or at least I did want that. Bill just walked off and was like. I'm so sorry I laughed at no. No that was great. That was perfect. Those perfect and I just started thinking. How does one make that happen without being unethical saying pretend to laugh and what you do is you take someone who is very busy and has to do something online network? Tv and throwing things at them right before they walk out and That was really fun. so so fun and the thing that was also great was. It'd be new lines in but I would tell bill right before he walked out because your eye has to read it off cue-card I did. I wanted him to get the thing that I just told them about. Word from Word Right. It'd various but the other thing was once once the cards reloaded. Sandberg would stand next to the camera like this. Just staring at him and one. Seth knew that we were changing things. He would make him repeat them. I'm sorry I missed. That would just tell us again. What's going to be there? So the best part of it was. Is that bill as this? Great Work Ethic Child of Oklahoma Plains of this great country and he would always come off and go. I'm so sorry I left. I mean every time he apologized. I said bill making sure that you thrown up every single time. I'm deliberately trying to mess with in sabotage this just enough so that you laugh. But he really was like. I'm so sorry laughed and I blew. It is perfectly fine one. That comes to mind when you do the long list of things that this place has. Yes that is everything you closed with my son that one just it was so deep in wrong. Stefan as son evidence on at this club my favorite which was A. New York's hottest club is your mother and I are separated or the other one the other the other line that I have used in other projects since was a doorman who hi. Ho a doorman who high fives the children of. Yes yes which is which was a real sense memory. A little man. That's why we're because it did struck a chord. We all remember that. That was a good time. So what's the character that you're most proud of? It's not Stefan that you created people didn't like it could be a well known character but Stefan gets all rightfully so it's all the love and people know you and build that character. What's the character as a writer? You love maybe just writing the best one of my favorite things to rights And if this comes off badly maybe you don't use it but Colin Josephson Rob Klein. And I would right the former governor David Paterson and was it was Fred looked so much like David. Paterson that Fred had actually wants. Almo- almost played him so he put on the beard before we were. Asteroid Governor Paterson Update. We did Fred called me that night and he said Hey. I just want to let you know that I'm going look exactly like I said. I'm going to look exactly like David. Paterson said why. Because it's like he's a he said it's pretty weird. I look a lot like the beard out and I was like okay. Great so we wrote these David Paterson's there were a lot of jokes and somewhere as to quote the New York Times to call this humor. Sophomoric would be an insult to solve actual quote. Yeah really from the New York Times and you remember that you don't forget that live is great There are a lot of very stupid on the line or over the line jobs. I would also say that very very quickly meaning. The first time he went out there David. Paterson became an insult comic who made fun of New Jersey. So Patterson Making Fun of New Jersey which was not a thing that was real right Was One of my favorite creations. Is that? He just wanted to hammer juice. Favorite character right was a this only made it on once was a character named Riley that Fred and I wrote I wear. Riley was a twelve year old boy. Who kind of talked by Harvey firestone and he had a lot of anecdotes and he was just a kid over at dinner with Andes Andes as a twelve year old classmate and he's at dinner with his family. And and Jason is the father and he says something. Shut up look at the issue gorgeous if she did a split kick a little boy in red. Wig SPLIT KICK in a skirt with a split up the side I faint and and I think his catchphrase was. Oh you bitch and twelve. And he's twelve any ad news. I can't stress enough that it was only on once that there's a lot of fun. It was critically acclaimed if not popular with the audience. Do you know what actually happened. They made a t-shirt of it. I think someone at NBC thought like okay. 'cause we gave it a jingle right. Yeah hoping that that would like manifest more more appearances of it. I think they thought okay. Well that was a sketch. I guess they'll bring it back and there was a riley t shirt sold at the NBC. Experienced wow guess who bought all of them. This guy's got him. You still have some home. Yeah you get those up on the Internet. That's a collector's item. I've tried I. Just give them the people sometimes from this joke. Stick around to hear more from John. Mullany on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast including where he got his sense of humor and his dream job as a kid. Hey it's MSNBC's Chris as this.

"john mulaney" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist

"I was called on Tuesday. August fifth. Two thousand eight and they said. Can you audition for Saturday night? Live and I said what and they must've thought I said when they said Thursday and I said what and they said. Can you audition for Saturday night live? It's Thursday August seventh and I said Okay because it I mean I wasn't going the right answer. Yeah I think it's the right in two days to prepare for this. Oh were you thinking the morning of Tuesday no it was? It was Late afternoon. La Time Right. So I had two days notice in the world of Saturday night. Live the less time you have the better. I believe because the more you think about it the crazier or you go right so I said to myself I looked in the mirror. And I said you're a white guy with a brown hair and they have a lot of those At the moment who are all brilliant and will forte bill. Hader Fred Arniston Andy what if any of the whole cast and then dating but all I mean was there was no possible way. You would ask me to be a cast. You have king sing the Song Retha Franklin like. Oh Well Carol Road that's interesting. Aretha so I I did think they don't me so but this'll be a really cool experience and of course just wanted do it to do it. Yeah so I said to myself I'm not going to try to write a bunch of characters in one day which I thought was like more of a piece with yourself decision. It's also a very practical decision right. Don't ever try to do that. I don't try to just suddenly do a Gordon Ramsay impression. And why did I name that because I did try load? Yes I watched a clip of it and I said I can't do this so I decided I'm going to do four minutes of standup and I'll do my favorite jokes and I'll just try to be funny in front of Lorne Michaels and one day. I'll tell my children or children. I've run into the street that I once met. Lorne michaels and that was really the plan and I walked down the sixth floor hallway because fun fact age was under construction. So I auditioned on Conan O'Brien's sixth floor studio yes therefore for well which is now the Dr Oz studio. 'cause they flipped it where. Jimmy Fallon right right. And then you're editor cut their. How floor work and DR is. Isn't there anymore. We'll just cut all around it. We do when our the today show in their couple of days a week and otherwise. I don't know what they do all week. Yeah it's empty. It's empty. It's empty we accuracy. Yeah Oh he's in Manhattan but he just does Friday night in there so we can have a live audience. Oh Yeah but was it. Ns NBC Paramus New Jersey. Who's in Secaucus? No years ago we moved into the big city. Not long ago I used to reverse no. It was like ten years ago. Yeah that's what I used to reverse commute through the tunnel at like three thirty. Am and go to Secaucus. An old warehouse. Clayborn outlet turned into a television studio. I went on a date with a girl who worked. At MSNBC and Fun fact that you can't use her. Father was the prosecutor in the zone. Benet Ramsey case what. We did not have immediate chemistry. Because of this back I asked her. How did it come up on the first Yes she brought it up casually and thought. Don't spit your food immediately. Hold hold hold and I said ask Grad again and then let's get as much information as we possibly get. The second one was in interview. The second one got what you needed. Yeah I said can we love you and we've digressed terribly so you're going to Conan's studio do your audition and they had us all waiting in one room and it was Donald Glover. I think he was the Donald Glover edition that year. Ellie Kemper Nick Kroll. I believe Jordan peele audition earlier in the year. Wow everyone who's very very very very very good at comedic acting and also characters and also impressions so they were all there and I was there too and I saw Seth Meyers in the hallway admendment. Ucb before and he was immediately like so nice and gracious and You go in to do the dishes and right before you go in. I think it's tradition. Sort of someone does say to you. Just you know people don't laugh that much. It's just a few people at a table and you know it's just a strange atmosphere. Don't let it three okay and I went out and I did four minutes of STANDUP and I would advise anyone doing anything in front of anyone to never make it longer than four minutes So with you on that. Yeah people really like things to be over more than anything else I said to my wife. Everyone just wants to go home everywhere everywhere everyone is they just. WanNa get on. Why do you think plays end with a standing ovation? I never thought of it that way. You're up on there. And then they go. Oh I'm a fighter. Fighting to get the greatest performances in the world and was forcing themselves doors open. Yes can we go out that one? Oh that's the stage door So I walked out and did four minutes and I got a lot of laughs. Yeah I got a I got a bunch and I was very happy and I walked out and I was. I thought to myself. That was so cool. I got last. I didn't know a floor. Michaels laugh but they had lights in my eyes intelligent. They use food and I couldn't see WHO's there. But Seth and Steve Higgins Mike Shoemaker and Lauren and Marcy client there were there and I walked out and I thought that didn't go terribly and now to say that to my kids kids. I run into on street that I didn't do terribly in front of Lord Michaels and then I thought very cool experience right like when you go to six flags over. I doubt I'll be back tomorrow so two days later. I had an Italian restaurant with my mother who I dine with my cell phone rings and I'd take the call. 'cause that's what you do when you're with your pear shut up and I it was a two unto number and I was in Chicago at the time and two one two is the area code for New York City and that means is more important than your family. I answered the phone. And it was Seth Meyers and he said. Hey and I said hey. I was excited because he was famous and and he was a very nice guy he said we would like to hire you as a writer and I said really what he said. I WanNa make it clear that this would just be writing. You know like your audition was hilarious but like this wouldn't necessarily be on camera and I was like I'm going to be a writer like that was so crazy to me because my dream since I was maybe eleven was to be like Conan O'Brien and my mom actually knew that I told her when I was eleven. I want be like this. He was on the cover of rolling stone. I said Hey mom I'm going to be like this guy and she was like what But she actually told me later that she took it has that I wanted to work as hard as he did to get into Harvard. Because I said you were like he did. He was a comedy writer and then he worked at the simpsons and then he had his own talk show and she. All she heard was that he'd been a comedy writer at Harvard. Right and that name stuck out to her. She told me later that she was disappointed that it wasn't about the Harvard Y- yeah it really wasn't. It was more about the funny late night. Show so I go back to the table and I sit down and I say that was Seth Meyers and I just got offered a job as a writer. Saturday night live. My Mom's have watched and I suddenly felt this burning in my stomach and our food came and it couldn't eat any of it and that burning lasted for five years It was a type of exhilarating fear that really did. Go Away so They set food down in. My mom just turns to the waitress and says my son just got hired as a writer on Saturday night. Live and the waitress. That's how CONAN started. No it was like a bad play era. Are you serious? Yeah if I wrote that called my life you John. Come athletes first off rewrite. We don't need to see the whole deal. That's that's crazy. Yeah so I went to They said come into your office if I had things you know. So I went in with a t shirt keys. And they said Kind of impromptu Lawrence in the office do you WanNa meet with them and I knew that there was not a question mark at the end of this and so I went in to meet with him for the first time and I think I apologize for being unaddressed t shirt. I don't think I know I apologize for being under dressed. I came in and I said Hey. I'm sorry because I had no idea 'cause he's never seen anyone in a t shirt a guy who has only hung out with comedians. And he said you're very funny and I said that means a lot coming from you and he said no I know because it's the most wonderful way he knows that you love the show and he knows you're excited and he has a lot to do not wrong about any of that by the way. If you're there you love the show. I don't think a lot of people coming not a fan. Yeah look at a chain. Well Yeah there are those people and that's fun to watch that happen but it he said you're from Chicago and I said yes and he said and now you're here and I said Yep instead is your family there and he said I said yes and I said something like Yes they're all back there on the third of four kids and he said Oh i I know everything about you He didn't meet. He looked me up like he. I know yeah I don't. I did not need to tell them. I was the third of four wine Irish family. And that's the type of confidence in wisdom that could be a totally grounded in no information and just bravado. But I've always thought like yeah. He knew he will. I walked in and he was like third of for northside. Chicago so Catholic. It's crazy written all over you. Yeah I mean I did walk in apologizing right under dress. It's a good opener. Power move past asking for forgiveness immediately. I won't make you go through all your characters because we'll be here all day but I'm GonNa go back to another. Snl friend of yours. I of course hater about the origin story of Stefan. He gives you all the credit. He says you've got a leaflet for some nightclub party where they said this place has everything including like broken glass on the whatever it was. Yeah I was more debaucherous than that. Broken Glass yes. Bill Bill and I wrote that Jerry together and it was I can't stress enough how I don't I don't know I think it was a small thing to him. Maybe you didn't maybe not even a significant thing to him but like the fact that he always would mention me as writing with them was really incredibly generous and like. I don't mean to say that other people at the show would not do that But writers on TV shows are not often cited and this is a writer director community. This is infuriating No but it was like really really cool. That always did that and it just meant a lot to me because I was. You know doing something like backstage and it was exciting but people would know that. I had worked on this thing. They like so bill just like really shared. Credit in all trickle down from south than Mike Shoemaker. Who made the place a really like communal environment Because there are books about the show you can read where it says that sometimes it was not heard those Yes yes. A lot of people will say People were not nice.

"john mulaney" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist

"Hey guys guys here with another episode of The Sunday. Sit Down podcasts. My thanks as always for clicking and listening along I got one. I'm very very personally excited about forty this week. I think you're gonNA love with comedian. John Mullany Seth Meyers once said of him. He's the funniest man in America. And I think I agree his standup specials. Most recently netflix special kid gorgeous live from radio. City Music Hall was made in one of his seven sold out dates. That famed New York City venue. It was his third netflix special wildly successful. He started as you may know as a writer on SNL He auditioned in two thousand eight to be on the show. You'll hear him talk about that moment. Got a phone call from Seth Meyers. Who was then the head writer on the show and said come on the show but not to be in the cast to be as a writer and he was cool with that he created along with Bill Hader the iconic character stefan need. I say more. He get some origin story on Stefan in our interview he went on from there to pursue his stand up career after he was a writer on. Snl He had Sitcom for awhile on Fox. Called mullany only lasted one season but then he went on and blew up as a standup comic. He has since leaving the show as a writer on. Snl hosted twice and he'll be back in a couple of weeks now for his third time. In three seasons as host musical guest will be David Byrne he of talking heads famed and also David Byrne a special celebrity guests. Molina's latest Netflix. Special called John. Mullany in the sack. Lunch bunch it's inspired by Sesame Street. The electric company some of those classical children's shows and it has a bunch of child actors Young actors very funny actors and it's mullany interacting with them and at first. You're not sure because you know who mullany as if the whole thing is ironic is it a spoof of children's shows and it turns out it's maybe not they talk about anxiety and fear and death. It's very funny Jake Jilin halls in it as well but it's a little deeper so I think you'll if you haven't seen The sack lunch bunch netflix. To check it out and if you've already seen it you're going to get some back story. And as I said a great conversation with one of the funniest men on the planet Earth for my money John. Mullany right now on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast done. Thanks for doing this man. Thanks for having. It's really nice. I think this is the first time we've worked together since we did. Oh hello at the ninety second street y a few years back and rave reviews to rave YouTube reviews a segment that I did not know was filmed and at I thought oh no and then people enjoyed it and you did an excellent job and because of that we did a Broadway show so thank you very much lower doing now. Here's what I did. Read your introduction. Which was great. I was watching it last night and we introduced nick as I think we said. Gilfach Zahn also is a model for mashed potatoes. A stand-in model for mashed potatoes. So they put him in to get the lighting right for mashed potatoes than they. Just explain what that means. Yes yes there was another beaten said. Let me be clear about what I mean. Yes yes yes. I remember that because we landed on. He's standing model for mashed potatoes. Yeah made us laugh and I thought well then that I don't really get that but I make it's making me laugh so let's have Willie explained. Yes exactly to a t his body shape and and the first guy to laugh actually just grew with the explanation. You grew a lot of times. I'll get a laugh and then I'd like to descend I like to. What is it called weight lifting the negative the negative big on the negative? Because you don't want a big muscles though we actually kill the laugh killer. Laugh never gets drunk. There was also a line in there was drunk group up in the balcony yelling down and George and George yield up to her would he'd been Dorian for a couple of GIN and tonics. I hope was there. George altered state. Or I'M GONNA say Georgia's well even me a wig on you would never ends. Were you at Dorian. And then Robert Chambers. Yes and it was like that. Yeah and it was like an hour and a half and remembered as watching you guys being the quickness because it wasn't scripted some of your bits where two people and we were so underwear upper chamber joke amazing Robert Chambers joke and yet I I spent so much time this morning looking for keys that were that are so big. The key ring is so big and it was in my pocket the size of a baseball and yet Robert Chambers at the radio is there. Yeah it's a different kind of brain. The preppy murderer there is so enough about Ohio for the moment. I never found that preppy. That was interesting. I was like come on post. Yeah yeah they needed a brand. You're the Post Mar- murder. Let's talk about the sack lunch bunch. It's been out for almost two months now on net flicks and December right. Yes people are loving it. I think the truth and I told you this earlier. People didn't quite know what to expect. They knew your stand up specials on Netflix. They know exactly what they're going to get with the standoff with the state up and with this now what's going on here. So what was the idea behind doing something completely different for you? Well I was one of the people saying what's going on here. I would say that in private to myself in the bathroom sometimes like late at night when we were rewriting and had an early call and I sort of stand there and think what am I making. What is this and then I would go? Just let's see know I would think to myself also that. What exactly is this and then I would. I would say it is a children's special that is also a musical and it's an examination of existential fear. I go okay so I could pitch it to myself right so the network in my brain was happy to give money to that. And what Netflix say to the net flicks. I don't know if they were on. Mda But they they not only supported it but There was a moment where See what I'd like to do is overspent and Well we need a budget increase. Because Reese Thomas are amazing director and Damage Studios are set designers. Did such incredible work. That we we needed a budget increase in net flicks was there with it and this is a remember. I did not know what the show as nor could I explain to people even on the eve of shooting it. You didn't quite. I actually think I knew that I couldn't articulate it which is just as bad and I actually. It was nice to have David Byrne in the special because I read a quote of his from how music works Which is sort of a memoir. But you know it's extensively about music and sound of music venues but in it. He said. Sometimes I'll be working on something and I don't know what it is or how to explain it but I kind of know what it'll feel like in the end and I was like. Oh man that's exactly right. That's not going to help me at the moment. Every with everyone said theoretically yes but it really was a guiding principle. So what about the kids angle of it? What did you WanNa work with a bunch of young kids and actors? What did you? What did you want to do with children where that's obviously not been your act previously? I wanted to talk to them. Because I don't ever I don't have any children I have nieces and nephews. But they're Like will edit and later. You're getting their ages. They're put it in track. I'll say it. Yeah that's it yeah. Yeah they're all different ages. Yeah and they they ascend yeah Let's say they at the time. We're eight six four zero sure. That's those are good ideas but And so I hadn't spent a lot of time talking to them because I also Do don't visit my family enough I go on holidays but We're all in different rooms Anyway I wanted to talk to kids because I occasionally would talk to someone who was like twelve and I found like Kinda fascinating Actually had a knick game and John Stewart was there and he was sitting courtside with his son and the The the jumbotron cut to Gene Simmons in the audience and Gene Simmons. I don't know if you noticed. Enjoys himself and so he kind of milked it and it was like dancing and like black. It went on for a bit tongue. No he didn't do the Thomason because he didn't have full kiss makeup right so he had to kind of come up with a equally large gene simmons persona on the spot which hats off to for doing it and everyone's cheering and John Stewart. Soma staring at it and then he went dad. Who's the the way he said it? I just it was so correct in a matter of fact and I thought like I find. I find that very interesting age. Who is that person? Yeah why are people cheering for this? Yes it's a fair question Macarena. Yeah and I had. This is the part where you as a journalist or any sociologist or anyone. Who does a any real research might think? I'm unqualified to even say this. I kind of wanted to see if kids were. Were talking about the things that Adult say they are talking and if I if kids were afraid of the things that we you know read and consume in here that they're afraid up and I thought yeah I thought they would. I thought it's a very different world. It is but at least in my research conducted throughout this past summer with fifteen kids. A lot of 'em are still afraid of Tarantulas. Really high on the list. It's still high on the list. Drowning was the opening fear. Yeah Yeah but to be fair. Jacob who is afraid of drowning do clarify that. He doesn't want his life to be over right so he's afraid of death but But the worst death would be drowning right. Yes specifically drowning. He realized mid-sentence that he doesn't WanNA drown because he doesn't want to be over which is makes complete sets. Actually it is profound. I like that. You pointed out that it is the opening of the special because for for those who wondered what is this. It was a lot of fun. Just have a smash cut to Jacob. Sweater covered with snails. Saying he doesn't want his life to be over but he specifically hates drought and in that sweet voice to your fears like an ashtray hitting the earth or other stuff like that is the first line stuff like that things in that category and I also really enjoy You know we have about forty minutes of interviews with each kid and they would many of them would say when I was a little kid preface story and I totally remembered that. Like at right like yes. They're the oldest. They've ever been right. You cannot talk to them like come on. They're like no I am. That is my past. I am not eight. I am ten right when I was little eight. I used to do this. I am now ten. It is over. There's also a very important moment early in the special where a little girl looks at you and asks so John Tell me. Is this an ironic show or is this an earnest show about kids so now and you go on to say that? Let's see how the reviews are basically now that we know that people have received it. Well that's your answer to her question. It was Ernest And I am yes I think she asked me. What the tone of this show right and I I asked. How do you mean.

"john mulaney" Discussed on Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend

"Backing a pretty good. It's nice break I did. I have run around the whole block. It's good for you. It's not it's something I have. All the guests do a You know smoke and you did it anyway. Heavy smoker no. But I am embarrassed to say I still smoke from from time to time right do you. I don't smoke. I never smoked now. My Dad's doctor and I I know your dad's a doctor. I also know that it is not good for you. I don't know why I do do it. Well there's a lot of things we do that we know aren't good for us but this one's really bad like absolutely no even like red wine people like have one glass a day and you'll prevent heart attacks sex and increase libido and there's nothing not there's never been a plus two cigarettes there was for a while in the fifties and sixties. They were so that it will give you a boost in your tease awesome. Yeah exactly they were. They tried it for a little bit and then basically they said No. It will kill you and kill you quickly. It's been a long long time that they've been saying it will kill you right. I was born probably thirty years after that was an established. Fact Right and I had to today. Well you can. You can slowly taper it back and well. Yeah I mean I have been and I. I started smoking when I was probably like thirteen. Fourteen read. It's really we're really talking about like having a cigarette like once a month. Yeah that's started. Wow to start at thirteen or fourteen freshman area. Wow Freshman year maybe one on a day sometimes right. Yeah would you make it lasts for a long time. Would you put it out. Every two seconds then realized it later I must admit last or they were longer backed down. Did you carry it around like a Hobo. The way sometimes they always have shorty. Yeah exactly and they take it out and they put it on a little toothpick and they realized it. Did you do that. No but I definitely I would definitely pull roll a cigarette from an ashtray that I assumed was mine in a car. And here's what I'm envious of. I love all the accoutrements that comes with smoking. Yes I would love to. If invented a cigarette that was wouldn't kill. You was perfectly corn silk and plays smoke yes but but also in some way even had some health benefits like it. Actually you could inhale calcium or protein. It would go into your body but it looks like a regular cigarette. I would get the lighter I would get the the cool case. Cigarette case is really is really a missing when I see old movies and a gentleman takes outside of his jacket a cigarette case and flips it open and takes out a cigarette and taps it down where the factor temps down to get the tobacco compacted and then takes a really cool lighter again. Lights himself he runs. He owns that is his and goes in his pocket of his double-breasted soon. He doesn't have like a hundred of them around the house. He's no one super scout one in it's always. He's filled with the right liquid. Yeah I so WANNA smoke. I so want to be able to smoke in that moment. Why isn't it healthy? Why does it have to be unhealthy? Or why can't the industry. I am talking to you industry. Why can't the industry make such a cigarette so that we can enjoy it? Why are they always making a cigarette? That kills us because it wouldn't cross the blood brain barrier and and become a addictive. So you see their point Yeah Smoking is I got up. I gotta do something about that. I've been saying for the last ten years. Okay well help you with it. Oh Yeah we're friends now. I used to smoke in thirty rock in indoors. Oh you're kidding. Yeah Yeah but a lot of people. Did you know what I have to say. This was a long time ago. This was two thousand and nine. When I was a writer on the simpsons? There was a writer John Schwartz world. He would just chain smoke in the room while we were working being in a small room. And we're sitting on this shitty furniture and he'd be chain smoking right next to me and putting his cigarette out in the ash tray that was on the arm. Rest that we shared and it never occurred to me to say anything I think I inhaled eight hundred cubic tons of tar. My death will be on his hands. The coroner when I die to investigate my lungs. And if in any way John Schwartz welders cigarette smoke short of my life. I want his estate sued. The investigators going in an interview about two or three other simpsons writers and get so annoyed talking to you gotTa. Do you know Brian when you certainly Mr Gene thinking of thinking out. O'Brien did you sit next to John Schwartz. Yeah you've you didn't do a lot of time in writers rooms where it was just hell did you live. It's different right Saturday. Night live there. Ah re-write room would close closest thing. I had written at Saturday night. Live and then I had truly only one you do. You WanNa do right there right. That was one of your dreams was to work in live or not. Yes or am I not so I wanted to be like Ricky Ricardo. I started becoming kind of a comedy nerd. Then I slowly realised I lacked certain skills that I saw other comedians have like Being like physical comedy or even being in their body at the moment I wasn't able to do that I was like I. I had no sense of how to be funny like a John. cleese or something right. I remember watching Monty Python and seeing Michael Palin and being very relieved because he's brilliant and Hilarious but I thought oh he. I could do that that right or I could attempt to do that right but I could never be funny the way Bob Cat was the way John cleese yes away countless other people who had a lot more their body is a big part of their instruments body and there. I felt the same thing working with like bill. Hader and Fred and Keenan I thought like And Kristen I'm uneconomical Casper. Does the same thing of like this is fine because this is like writing for like Jimi Hendrix or something like they I could never do what they're doing. Yes but I started to identify that when I was younger. Then Ya then. You came along ninety three Yup and it was great. It's I don't know what it was like for you but that first year was so so so fun was a good view and we were having so much fun watching. I don't know it was like making it but We the audience. I remember being so I went. What the Hell is that to the point that I thought you might have stolen my act like wait a second? That's exactly what I like. And that's exactly the kind of humor my brother and I do and we were locked in on the show my brother chip and I. I remember you had a week where you were going to find grady from Sanford and son yes and bring him on the show and you kept building up to it and I remember Friday night right I might have been at a friend's house and like maybe GonNa Sleep over something and then I realized it was Friday so that this was the night. Grady was either GonNa come on or not. I still remember sprinting down my street in Chicago to get home To Watch it with my brother at eleven thirty and grady came out with under huge under huge lights after we played out there. It is after a limousine pulls up to thirty rock. We had a we cutting away. I I think to the limousine bringing grady from Sanford and son to the show and I told my mom I want to be like Conan O'Brien and he was a writer and he worked at the Lampoon. And I want to do that. And then I won't be a writer and then I want to have a talk show like that and my mom all she heard was your Alma Mater. And that's all that's all she got out of that. The conversation was never really wanted to go where you went to school. And she was very happy about that the rest of it. I don't think she paid any attention right. She later said. I always hope that you meant you. Were really to work that into said school. I remember there was like your third year anniversary. Yep How uncomfortable is this. Okay that I'm on. I'm fascinated because to me. I wish your future so hard have come and visited me in ninety three and said it's going to be okay because the stuff you're doing is worthwhile L. because we we cuts so much negativity. Yeah and it didn't affect us. We kept going but he didn't well it. It didn't stop us from trying to continue. You'd be as weird as we could possibly be do the things we wanted that I'm proud of. I don't agree with that well. Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger? I prefer not to have gone through that. uh-huh yeah but that's okay. It happened in it does happen. Occasionally one names the show after themselves and that can go downhill and back. Listen kids if your greatest fear is ever seeing a newspaper say mullany is not funny. Don't create a show called mullany because that's your name and though they're writing about the show and they're kind of parsing you from the show it's GonNa pack a punch. Yeah I. I don't know what you're like. I am very good at my wife. Always notices this I get compliments than I- hermetically seal them and like in an envelope envelope and go. That's so nice and I put them away. I'll open that later and enjoy it and yeah but I I she but she. She told me you've got to get better better at just being grateful when people say Nice things have gotten better. I don't know what your accent when people say to you. Oh my God I saw kid gorgeous. And it's the funniest thing ever thank you say that and then you just put it away or can you. Can you internalize able to take it in and soak up the fact that you're Ooh you John Mullany yeah I can. I can take it in I. I did learn from when I had my pomace Sitcom which was called hero Shema which was called mullany. After that. I you know I had always heard this maximum like don't you don't you. Don't listen to the good reviews because then you have to listen to the bat or whatever and I thought that's true after that experience I thought it taken any complement and enjoy. Enjoy it. Yup and I'd say the final hurdle though would be to show the person that you've enjoyed the compliment as opposed to looking at my feet like And saying Oh thank. That's nice of you to even watch it. You know Right but that's probably never going to go. Well I have to say You know I have been watching your stand stand up and then I and we had gotten to know each other and you had done stand up on my show and I was a big fan of yours and then I went downtown with my wife and saw kid gorgeous And my wife Elisa was saying I haven't heard you laugh like that in memory and I was so oh happy and then this weird feeling watching you do that show of. I want to be doing what he's doing but my it's so funny because I wasn't isn't really meant it. I was like I would like to do that. I would like to get up on stage and because the kind of your your sense of humor is I love it so much and I love how universal it is. I love that it's not you're not ripping stuff from the day's headlines not that I necessarily against that but it's just not my cup of tea and the most political you get when you talk about. Trump is saying he's like a horse in the hospital and I was like. Oh my God that is my favorite it kind of political humor and I think actually the only time I've ever had a take that was I think good in the moment on something thing happening in them. Oh Yes yes but I mean that will that that will endure and also probably could be said about future presidents because this isn't trump is just the beginning in my. We're going to have more horses in the hospital. Yeah you look back now and Nixon. Nixon was like a bad doctor. Here's a back Dr. Yeah yeah at Lisa Medical. He knew some of the jargon No I Was was watching it and I was saying to my wife afterwards. I was kind of keyed up. And that was just like I just That's so great. What John's doing and I was I just and to do that in a theater? It's so great and she was saying well. You know you've done things kind of like that and I was like be. I WanNa be that person in this moment so all the time when I see I saw Sally Wong Town Hall and I thought I wish I could do that. You know it's like oh I wanna be a comedian. I think that all the time I see comedians. I WANNA be. I always loved the idea media in of There's so much stuff in show business that you would think would be great and then it really is great. which is when you do a show? I will say it's before the show and you check into your hotel and you realize that because you're doing a show you're not really paying for this hotel And you go up to your room. And then it's time to go down and go to the theater and check out the acoustics and out the sound and sometimes if I'm working with the band and there's a band there and get to play a few tunes with them and and then Okay they're going to load the audience in and you gotta go downstairs and there's just I absolutely love all of it. I yeah of being an old theaters. I love weird pipes in the bathroom and ask I always ask the stage managers. There like haunted right. Yeah Yeah I all right. What who's the ghost and they'll tell you you know The Midland's theater in Kansas City or the Moore Theatre Seattle There's different ghosts at each Schwan. And they know who the ghost is right Midland theatre they said as a janitor and an anarchist set off a bomb in the lobby and nine hundred ten and the janitor died and and I said so you see the janitors goes to go. Yeah what's he doing. He's normally sweeping up in the lobby for all eternity attorneys. Do I have to say the life.

This is an old studio from the nineteen twenties. Nineteen thirties yeah and so the walls are covered with chicken. Wire that are that are holding in You Know Oh some kind of material from a pre world war two material probably toxic. Yeah the keeps out noise and so a little piece of chicken wire was sticking taking out and you cut your sweater on it and you were infuriated ing so pissed and you were yelling. F The wall the wall.
