"Now here's something else that you might not know about the Jonas Brothers. In the 2007 Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, they rode on the builder bear workshop float. Nice. And then, right when it was over, they built a bear out of Kevin's old sideburns. Boo. I'm sorry, did somebody just boo me? Boo. Well, that's rude, but you guys won't believe this. The Jonas Brothers were the youngest band to ever be on the cover of Rolling Stone, yeah, we know. Is that you? Exactly me. Yes. That's like asking if the Jonas Brothers freaking rule. Hell yeah, dude. What are you doing here? I don't know, I'm so drunk right now. I was drinking white claws with Niles. Cook it. So you're a fan. Oh, I'm a huge fan. I listen to the Jonas Brothers every time I'm in a supermarket. I mean, show some respect, okay? Nicks a legit actor now. He's won everything from a kids choice award to a team choice award. Yes. Very good. Thank you. You know, Nick had a hit called jealous, though it would have been way more believable if Kevin was singing it. Haven't you ever heard the song roller coaster? You know how brave it is to do a song about something none of them are tall enough to ride? I mean, how can I make fun of these guys? I look like a Jonas brother if his mom was also his Jonas sister. I am sorry, but we need to keep the show moving. Please. No more interruptions. Okay, okay. Okay. Thank you. Okay. Now, the Jonas Brothers have performed at The White House several times. But most notably, when they sang the national anthem for the women in sports, T ball game. Or, as it's more commonly known weight, is that a real thing? Okay. All right, all right. Now, now you've gone too far, okay? These guys rock, okay? A little bit longer as both my favorite album. Yeah. Yes. Yes. And it's what soapy wishes Joe's penis was. Hey. Easy.

"kenan thompson" Discussed on Naughty But Nice with Rob Shuter
"Only but nice. Welcome to the naughty but nice show I'm your host star. I'm sure it is Thursday, which means idea friend Mark lupoli joins us hey loopy. Hey, Ralph. You look adorable this morning, what's up with you? Well, I woke up extra early to make sure I would be here for you in the Nazis. I'm showered. I'm dressed. I'm ready to go. What the noise don't see is we do these over Zoom each morning, or at least we see each other over a zoom, we record over a different method, but whenever we do the molecule, the only co host that comes dressed. Like in my pajamas, I clearly have not brushed my hair or had a shower. I did brush my teeth. But Mark, you could go out for a night on the town, you look marvelous. You know what I have to say, rob, I feel like I do my best work when I'm dressed and I feel like I'm prepared for anything. I like that. So what you look like on the outside really does affect how you feel and how you do your job. We should talk about that because last night I went to noma the museum of modern art because it was the Sex and the City premiere and talk about looking good, Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah Jessica, probably got out of her car with her son, who we never ever see. Matthew, who we never ever see, and they walk the carpet like a family. The three of them Mark. I thought it was really, really lovely. I didn't see the new shower, but I did see the red carpets. You'll see pictures today of Sarah. She was very clever. Remember that two two that was really the most famous costume in the whole of the series. It was under her and the opening credits when the bus drove past. She's wearing a blue dress and under the dress is the two two. Oh my gosh. It's really adorable. Hey, let's jump into the sharks. We've got so much to get to. What time is it, my Friends? It is a tea time. Jennifer Aniston is doing this massive interview. I've never seen her this honest, it's with The Hollywood Reporter, and she said that her mom gave her an example of what she never wanted to be. She dissects everything about her public life and she said that her her life her real life has really been consumed all the pregnancy rumors, all the rumors about her different marriages getting back with Brad, and she said, basically, you have no clue what's going on with me personally or mentally. And when people ask her about kids, she said something really interesting. She said, maybe I can't have kids maybe. You just don't know. And it's really hurtful and a nasty thing to say. I thought that was so interesting Mark because we assume so many things about different people, particularly celebrities. It never crossed my mind that maybe Jen doesn't want kids, or maybe she can't have them. Bombshell. Bombshell, you know, Robert's a great point. We kind of push our expectations onto Jen. Like, oh, it would be a great mom. But yeah, maybe she doesn't want to be a mom or maybe she just can't have kids right now or she doesn't feel like she's ready. And yeah, it's unfair to her. It's for us to ask those questions. To think about it. Projecting your feelings is exactly what she said about this. And she said, she's sort of got used to it. She said her life for entire life has been dissected for public consumption. She was asked how she navigates the whole narrative about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and she said that she tries to stay positive and she surrounds herself actually with positive people. She has amazing Friends, she did say to she learned what not to do from her late mother. Oh, she said quote, I know that this person was giving me an example of what I'd never want to be. She said that she doesn't want to get twisted or bitter or angrier about this and the tabloids yes are they annoying, but she said now it's moved on and the tabloids don't do it as much anymore, but social media has replaced them so now it's social media that is trolling everybody. She's scuffs at the long-standing pregnancy rumors and she defends her decision to remain single. It's a remarkable interview. It's the cover story. It's a long interview, but you can get it online today. You should check it out and it brings us to our poll question of the day. Jennifer, said her mom gave her an example of what she never wanted to be here. As a parent, ever done the same for you. It's a tough question today. Hey, go vote on at Twitter page at naughty nice rubber, or a Facebook page, which is naughty gos, you can leave a comment and be sure to check back tomorrow to hear your results. Mark love, what are you working on? Oh, I got a good one for you today, rob. Keenan Thompson is spilling the tea about Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson. Okay, so Keith and Thompson was asked about his SNL costars rumored relationship with Kim Kardashian and the comedian admitted he said quote, I guess it kind of happened fast but I don't really know their business outside of what everyone else is doing or reading. If they're happy, I'm happy. Which is fair. He also said Pete, who is 28 and Kim, who is 41, we know they've been on several dates. And he said, listen, Pete is a good dude. He's a talented boy, and I think he's just very down to earth and grounded, and that's very appealing to people when you can keep it real with somebody and ride the roller coaster that's special. I like that. I like it too, rob, but I think it's fair. And before we get ahead of ourselves, the story. I do want to point out that during Kim's acceptance speech at the People's Choice Awards this week for which she was given the fashion eye kind of word Kim gave Kanye a strange husband of course. A very special shout out. She said, thank you to Kanye for really even introducing me to the fashion world. Anymore, does she maybe she does? I think she's keeping Kanye happy because we know when Kanye is not happy, he goes bananas. This is interesting, isn't it? What do we really know about the people we work with? So Kenan Thompson has been on SNL, I think longer than anybody, however, the show's on how I ate us now. It doesn't come back until the New York. Do you stay in touch with people you work with over the holidays? If you've taken a couple of weeks off, do you? I'm quite good actually Mark knowing the difference between a real friend and a colleague. And it's not that I ignore my colleagues, but were good work colleagues and we text every so often, but I have a separate group of like really close pedals. What about you? Do you mix both worlds? I used to mix them a lot and I think that became more complicated for me. It made me distracted. And I think as I've gotten older, I you said rob, I know the difference, and I make that very clear. And I need to break from these people. I see them every day. I'll see you in two weeks. Yeah, I find my job, my work, particularly doing what I do is so much easier. It's so much clearer if I'm not best friends with them. So a lot of people want to hang out with celebrities or be friends with them and go for drinks with them. I find that only problematic. I just want to talk to you when I've got some gos, or if there's something to write about, I'll be nice to you if I see you out. I love to say hello, but I don't want to go for dinner with one of the housewives. It's just not my thing. I love talking to them. I love texting them. I love getting gossip, but then it gets more complicated, and I don't think that's just about the housewives. I've seen this too in real life in people in the office or people I work with. I want to be work colleagues. I don't miss a really want to be best friends. Is that terrible? You know what's funny, rob that what makes me laugh is that you are someone who is always working though. Even when we think we're out having fun and not working, you are like if you always ticket to our friend Valerie's housewarming party a couple of weeks ago and somebody was there a designer who said something and Valerie said I was like Scooby-Doo. And I said, so I literally Ted and I had to stop it, stop it. Okay. I love it. I love it. Leave it alone. Kristen Davis from Sex and the City. He's saying that the reboot really handles the Kim.

He was just a father figure for so many people on thousand percent. I felt like a heavy betrayal. Basically because you know he was you know the guy. When i was growing up he was like the one clean comic. So you know. I watched bill cosby himself. Thousands of times like he was basically my introduction to what comedy was. And what sitcoms were and all that kind of thing and then like learning his history and his career and you know. He's like the first probably autobiography. That i read and stuff like that so yeah. He was a prime example of a career. That i wanted to have and you know the kind of guy i thought i wanted to be. As far as being a father and being a comedian is concerned and stuff like that. And then you hear rumors about you. Know when eddie murphy came out and said that he wasn't you know treating eddie murphy right and you know it was like when i want to be my own person. My you know whatever you let that. Wash off your back. And then you hear rumors of this and that and the other as time goes by and it's like all right.

It's not surprising given everything that you were doing that you you did. Keep it a secret but the relationship eventually soured. She occupied a house. She didn't want to move out of it. She was talking about selling letters you had written to her demanding money and in the end you you tried to negotiate it quietly but one day she without warning files a lawsuit outing your relationship.

This was my toughest time. I think in my life right and your parents did show up. My parents are great. I knew they would show up but for them to accept it. That took a long long time. It took until the ninety i got psychotherapy and went to eating disorder place and so i think everyone everyone has these moments in their lives that they know that hasn't been just an easy road. That's for sure. I had had been aware of this event But what. I learned the book. Was that in fact. You know while in a way you told the truth that in that you had had this affair. There was a lot that you were still not disclosing right. I mean you actually then had another relationship with elena close who remained with for all of these decades. But you've kind of said this was a it was a mistake. I was unfaithful to my marriage. And you said you were you. You're still committed to the marriage. And so in fact. I would say saying the book. Is that in this case. You turned being outed into away to burrow deeper into the closet. I mean you had to hide even more. That had to be really hard. Well larry and i did we. We did larry your husband at the time. Yeah yeah my husband. Time that i end. We did try again. But i with london. I'd ask larry for divorce in nineteen sixty nine and he said no and he still didn't wanna get divorced. Never did actually. We finally got divorced and eighty seven. I think and he still didn't wanna get divorced. It was one of the most painful moments in separations. Because we love each other in. And so but i was with lana by now and win. This lawsuit happened in We've been together for forty two years in it's worked out unbelievable one more thing You know when. Naomi osaka chose not to talk to the media. I mean you express an opinion about that. We also saw simone biles taking a mental health break during the olympics. What's your take on cases like that where people think the need to step back from the spotlight for a time. I think it's great. They're being honest and telling the world and of course with social media. It's a lot easier to share your thoughts quickly can mobilize quickly communicate quickly now. I think we've always had these issues. I don't think people realize like the w t the women's tennis association has services for this but it's confidential so that's why no one's ever heard about it A naomi can go and get help bomb yet. Psychologists we get whatever for them. So and i think it's good bot. Simone spoke up. I think she was smart to do that until the team could win a medal. I think that's the right thing to do abridging king. Thanks so much for speaking with us again. Thanks dave is talking to you. Billie jean king's new book is all in an autobiography for years ago.

"We'll billie jean king welcome back to fresh air. It's good to have you thank you dave. You didn't grow up in a country club. Your dad was a career firefighter. How did you pick up tennyson. Good good at it well. It happened in fifth grade. First of all. I did play all team sports as a child. Baseball football basketball. Are i love. And i have a younger brother. Randy moffett who played twelve years of professional baseball so he and i played sports together all the time. I'm five years older. i also remember it. Nine years old. I realized as girl. I couldn't play baseball. We were watching a pacific coast league in california. When i was nine. And i realized that was my. I was really upset that day. I'll never forget realizing that because my gender i'm a girl i'll never be able to play professional baseball so anyway in fifth grade susan williams sitting next to me she looked at me. As as you wanna play tennis. And i go tennis. What's tennis i won't. What do you do and she says you could run jump and hit a ball i said. Oh wow i'm there. I'll try it so we went to her contract high loved it and i thought well this is nice but my dad's a firefighter. I'm never going to be able to play all the time because we don't belong to a country club. That's for sure then. Susan and i are also on a softball team in helping park. And she says to the coach. Oh i took billy out to play tennis and the coach valhalla says oh they give free instruction here every tuesday at how in part and then i was excited. I might have a chance to really play. So my dad made me my first racquet. I go out to the park and i met clyde walker my first coach and i knew i want to be the number one tennis player in the world that day the second time he picked up a racket so when you started playing and you started playing competitively and when you really got good and we're becoming known in junior tennis i remember you describing when you would. I started going to to advance at country clubs. You would notice that the boys and a lot of cases were having their meals. Comped right and that one come in your way yes at the los angeles. Tennis club I used to sit back and watch what was going on. And the top male juniors could sign off on sale for sandwiches kosher. I've just talking to a friend. The other day she had the same situation. We used to take our brown bag lunches to the courts. And my mom. And i'd sit in the back and watch tennyson eat But i always thought in the back of my mind. I thought you know it's really not right Every should be by individual. Not by whether you're a girl or boy. So i was irritated. But when i was twelve is when i had my piff unie that really changed my life and set me on course at the los angeles. Tennis club and i was sitting there daydreaming about my sport that i've gotten into and everybody were white shoes. White socks white. Close play with white balls. Everybody who played with white. And i asked myself at twelve years old when i was daydreaming. Where is everybody else. Where is everybody else. So i promised myself that day. If i could become number one that i would fight for equality the rest of my life. So let's talk about how you changed the game or help change the game. As a young young woman you were an amateur back then. As most of the top tennis players were end. You would get some payments in the form of expenses right You you called it. Shamateurism Why was it a sham. Because this is just dishonest. Sometimes you get money on the the very officials that ran the game had tournaments and give whatever. They decided to players than they used to give more money to the foreign players. So that was another irritating factor so we just knew the game had to change. We're just it was a mess. It was a mess. It wasn't honest. i liked integrity. Really everything should start with integrity. And i felt like i'm in a sport that could do better when that even when you did get expenses. It wasn't a lot of money right. We got fourteen dollars a day when we stayed in housing. Well so you began speaking out. You would talk to newspaper reporters and this was after established. A name for yourself. You had defeated margaret smith. At wimbledon i believe and you know you were unknown well known player and you start giving these candid comments to reporters calling this whole system shamateurism and there's a moment you describe where bob kelleher who i guess was. The president of the tennis association tells you billie jean. If you don't stop giving all these interviews or you're gonna get suspended you just say go ahead. You're like all of what twenty four years old at the time i mean you you were kind of fearless about this i mean. Where did that come from. Well came from that epiphany. When i was twelve but it also came from. I think watching tv in the fifties and just seeing how you have to fight for. Change like for instance. When kids of color black kids could not go to school with white kids. I did not understand that. I used to ask my ass. My dad and my mom went. I don't understand that. And they said. Because they're negroes. And i said well what does that do with it. They said because of their color. And i said i don't get this. This is right also out the gibson who was the first black player to win a major. She was allowed to finally clay in our tournaments. Nineteen fifty of course. Jackie robinson had joined the brooklyn dodgers nineteen forty seven. But finally we had our champion in our jackie robinson tennis so i don't know i just wanted things to be right and also i want people to change so capable point at which tournaments were offering prizemoney. Finally they didn't restrict these big tournaments to amateurs men. Were making much more than women. And you need it away to to assert your interests in real recognition and real pay. And somehow this idea came up of a tour of you forming a women's tour. Explain what happened. Here is a build up a three years because sixty eight when it went open. It was crazy start having less opportunities for us like you said dropping tournaments giving us less so Rosica sales when i talked to you gladys hellman gladys helmand was the publisher of world tennis magazine so gladys said she was trying to work with jack kramer the pacific southwest and it just got impossible so she said to hell with it. I'm gonna do tournament which was great so we have this tournament but during the tournament we would get together and have meetings the three things that we talked about the three things that any girl born in this world. If she were good enough would have a place to compete. Number two should be appreciated for accomplishments. Not only her looks and number three to be able to make a living playing tennis which was the most important thing because most of us had obviously experienced are fourteen dollars a day so we ended up signing a one dollar contract with gladys and that was the birth of women's professional tennis the way you know it today. We didn't care for suspended which we were. We're suspended then. Were taken back suspended. Taking back it was very tumultuous at the time was very scary. We didn't know what was going to happen But of course now you see the w tator with millions of millions of dollars you see the winners of the majors making three million dollars. You can go right back to that day when we signed that one dollar contract that is the essence of why.

"Podcast feed when my guest. Tennis legend billie jean king captured the wimbledon women's doubles title at the age of seventeen. She got a trophy and a chance to curtsy before the royal family but no prize money today that championship comes with hundreds of thousands of dollars in winnings and a good part of the reason is billie jean king herself when she was in her. Twenty s king organized other top women players in the game to take on the tennis establishment and win recognition and pay for their efforts. A high risk undertaking change tennis forever. That's among the events king recounts in a new memoir along with some of her thirty nine grand slam championships. Her activism for women lgbtq rights and some joyous and painful chapters in her personal life including a closeted lesbian relationship. That burst into public view with a lawsuit. Billie jean king also co-founded world team tennis and in two thousand nine was the first female athlete to receive the presidential medal of freedom. Her new book is all in an autobiography. We're going to listen to a new interview. I've just recorded with billie jean king. But i will begin with the events. She's probably best known for the so called battle of the sexes. Match with self-proclaimed male chauvinist. Bobby riggs in nineteen seventy-three king described the experience in an interview in two thousand thirteen rigs a former tennis champion had challenged king exhibition match after defeating another women's tennis player margaret court king accepted and the match was played in the astrodome and seen by a tv audience. Estimated at ninety million people will begin with an excerpt from an american masters documentary about king. This deals with the high leading up to the match will hear king and bobby riggs talking to reporters and at the end. A bit of bobby on the tonight show with johnny carson. I think that. I can beat bobby. I won't be able to say. I'm not margaret court. I love pressure. You can try me all you want. Sink lots at stake for women's lived. I like the idea that i'm playing for someone else besides myself. I got one hundred. Twenty thousand letters. From bobby's mop. This is the mov of guys all over the world but wrote and told me. They were rooting for me. I wouldn't let these guys down for the world. this has the atmosphere of a prizefighter. Does exactly what it never bet against. Bobby riggs especially when there's big money involved. He houses off the court and hustle on the court. And that's matters. She's abandoned for the women's lib. I'm karen mayola supreme. The male is king no matter what the difference in as this is a bunch of baloney first of all people are people summer more supreme than others in different things like women real good in the bedroom. A kitchen and i need a male show. And that is our guest. Billie jean king forty years ago with bobby bobby riggs before the famed tennis battle of the sexes in nineteen seventy-three. You obviously had a lot of joint appearances together with bobby. Riggs building up the attention for the mass. Did you feel like you got to know him at all. Well actually bobby was one of my heroes. I love history. I knew all the champions in our sport preceding me and i appreciate it emmy on the triple crown. at wimbledon. i knew that the second world war actually hurt his career which i felt bad for him because didn't allow him to get the recognition. He deserved. He was finally at least getting recognition. I don't know. I don't think most people realized what a great champion he he had been even though i would tell them. I don't think they were really tuned in to that at the time he was fifty five when he was using old as my father and i told them for me to beat him absolutely nothing athletically. Okay nothing but it's what it represented and when margaret lost. you know. i didn't know if i was going to beat him. I thought she would kill them and raise far as winning and she didn't so i'm like oh boy. You never underestimate your opponent anyway. I mean my parents my my dad. Oh god that was like he had to always respect. Your opponent always always always respect them no matter what and secondly never ever underestimate them ever so these. These things are just printed in my dna. Almost so here's a hero of mine. He's he's going on and on about women in the bedroom and keep him praying in barefooted. And all these things. And i'm like oh my god. He was funny. But i i liked showtime. I love entertainment and i think being tennis player. You're performer. so i got that part. And i i thought you know what bobby just go for. But i'm gonna tell you. I'm not letting you get under my skin. Because i didn't want him to think he could like he did margaret. Because i didn't get to see the match against mario i must tell you. Did this american masters. I got to see at once. And i didn't realize. How badly margaret played and i felt so sorry for because we've all been there every human beings been in these situations where you're you're not happy and you don't do well and you choke i mean athletes. We choke. I mean champions. Choke less. She had a horrible day at the office. So i felt so bad but So it did. Tes up though. I must say teed us up the women's movement title nine the year. Before all the things that i've been fighting for forever equal opportunities for boys and girls. You know it's funny because everybody talks about how this divided us actually brought everybody together. Did exactly what. I wanted it at all these parties. All these bets from people. Everybody was crazy at this time about this match what i wanted to ask you. What do you think bobby. Riggs really held the strong beliefs about the role of women. Or was this just basically stick that he developed a ten. I think a chauvinistic. I think he probably over the top for the match. But he's very kind person. But i think he's very chauvinist ethic. He was chauvinistic but a really nice chauvinist and he and i remained friends up until the day he died from prostate cancer. So the day the match arrives and rigs enters accompanied by a bunch of young women. You enter it. Like cleopatra carried on a train muscular guys obviously part of the show. Yeah you felt okay. I felt great because It's showtime in jerry. Perenco was quite sweet. Before i came out he said i have this egyptian litter would do you think he'd get in. I know you're feminist. You probably won't. I saw you kidding. It's showtime this is perfect absolutely. I'll get up here. Let's have some fun you know. The crowd deserves a good show. Obviously i was about ready to die. Because i'm gonna win this match. I mean the you know the reality of it. But i also your fans always come first so I said no. I'll get on there. And he bought fan and he said you will. I said yes. Of course i will showtime. Let's hear a little bit of showtime here. I want to listen to a little bit of howard. Cosell district reading your entrance into this headline monday night.

In comparison to the people that were really affected by it. But it definitely didn't feel good to be close to any kind of behavior like that. So i wanted you know whatever just is that could be served be served but yet the whole thing just folk gross. You know what i mean. It felt gross to be such close proximity to that. But i was proud of the work that me and my cast mates did on that movie because we spent a lot of time together and we had a great time. You know it was a lot of work but we got through it together through laughter and just us being close in young in good people.

And beyond your wildest means all bookings final. when's the last time you wrote a moving and deadpan. Funny novel about religious life. Faith and doubt our book critic maureen. Corrigan says she has one to recommend. It's called agatha of little neon and it's my first time novelist claire luchetti. I was a catholic school girl during strange moment in the nineteen sixties when catholicism infiltrated american popular culture for a brief time nuns in particular were everywhere. The flying nun starring a buoyant. Sally field was on tv. The singing nun appeared on the ed sullivan. Show and her life was made into a movie. There was the trouble with angels and the mother superior of all non movies the sound of music nuns of course have greatly diminished in number since the sixties and in recent decades when they do make an occasional appearance on screen. They're often grim even baroque characters. Like meryl streep sister ella. Wishes endowed or jessica lang sister jude in american horror story. The implication is that there must be something off about a woman who would choose such a life of self abnegation claire lucci. He's debut novel. Agatha little neon offers a counter narrative about a young twenty-first-century. None who's neither a holy fool nora musical miracle worker nora monster. I picked tobacco the the little neon for its unusual subject and i got pulled in by agatha's voice sharp and by turns. Melancholy and rye agatha narrates her own belated coming of age tale about as she says learning how to distinguish an idea of yourself from the real thing agatha tells her story in retrospect beginning in two thousand and five in her convent outside of buffalo new york. It's a place with walls painted. The color of mayonnaise ruled by a beloved elderly mother superior. Frail as filament. Agatha has spent seven years there ever since she took her vows at the age of twenty two she and three fellow sisters all the same age run a daycare center but when the novel opens the diocese is going broke because as agatha tactfully says the men in charge had been reckless later on when agatha is all out of deference. She's more lacerating about the recklessness sexual as well as monetary of those priests who are in charge abruptly booted out of their convent. The four sisters transferred to a halfway house in the depressed rhode island town of woonsocket there without any training. They're expected to minister to recovering addicts and ex-convicts here's agatha's first impression of her new posting woonsocket. A tucker down town in northern rhode island split down the middle by a of waste. The sidewalks were littered with condoms and crushed empties from woonsocket. You could vomit into massachusetts from massachusetts. Kids came to buy liquor and sentinel after nine. The halfway house is the color of mountain dew. A yellow green discount paint that makes the house visible from three blocks away hence the name little neon agatha observes that usually when people saw our habits they ceased to see our faces and most of the halfway house residents behave that way barely interacting with the sisters but one recovering addict named tim. Gerry's different tim who's lost half his jawbone to cancer and got hooked onto lauded recognizes a fellow lost soul agatha and agatha is further pulled away from her community when she's ordered to teach geometry at a nearby girls catholic high school and ordeal that should qualify her for sainthood. What's especially striking about luchetti novel. Is that it affirms. The age-old writing workshop wisdom of show don't tell despite the fact that our narrator lives a contemplative life. she doesn't devote a lot of space to ruminations. Instead every short chapter here is structured as a precise vignette dramatizing different incidents in her and her fellow sisters lives from the mundane to the harrowing for instance. There's the poverty of regular mealtimes little neon were cut rate. Concoctions like chopped walnut tacos make appearances and seen where agatha describes how her mother hemorrhaged to death after giving birth to a baby brother. And how for grieving. Agatha church was the only thing in her life that pulled her forward until it doesn't you could learn to live without a part of yourself. Agatha tells us i did for years. I lived like this and then i started to yearn for what i had lost. You don't have to be catholic to connect with lou chetty nuanced and vivid story of a lonely young woman yearning for community and also yearning for everything. She's had to give up to be part of that community. The nuns don't fly or sing or torment the helpless in agatha of little neon. But they do make an indelible impression. Marine corrigan teaches literature. Georgetown university she reviewed agatha of little neon by claire. Luchetti tomorrow on fresh air.

"It's that too painful to think about. Sometimes it is and that's kind of another thing that we kind of moved away from from the pilot Originally the original pilot Mike we started at you know the almost the reception of the funeral so by the pain was so so recent that it kind of didn't allow for a comedic setting to really take hold basically in the the show just played very melancholy so we kind of moved away from like you know maybe a year or so and it's not so and so recent that he can talk finally without falling apart and stuff like that but still spiraling out of control because he's juggling so much emotion with responsibility and running a show and all kinds of things so you know just being overly vulnerable but also being a dumb man and not really one to admit when he's wrong when he needs to is this sometimes. We have to be playing a father on tv. Who's not being. Who's not able to be home with this kid. Just much as he wants because he's so busy and you're playing this father which just keeping you from being home with your kids because doing that show playing. The father is keeping you so busy. Yeah it's a bit of a whirlwind. You know like. I wake up and make breakfast for my kids and then i go do a scene where making some sort of meal for my tv children to you know like i'm living my character kind of twenty four seven in a weird way but it keeps me focused on the fact that i am you know a parent and how attentive i really do want to be with my children and my wife and you know my my family is well. My brother sister. My parents are still with me. Thank god like you know. I just wanna make sure that. I'm available to whoever so i don't know i'm just like that. I would rather not sit in solitude. Necessarily unless i'm taking a nap. You grew up in atlanta. You had your first paid gig when you're a ten and a tv commercial for lee's famous recipe chicken was that a local chicken place It was local in the south. But there wasn't one in georgia. So i never got to see commercial. It was in like all the surrounding states like tennessee. And like the carolinas. And you know alabama and stuff like that so that bombie out. I wish i could see the commercial now. I tried looking for but couldn't find it. What did you do in it. I was fishing with my fake grandfather. And that was freaking me out a little bit because that was my first time like working with another actor i guess like on the kind of thing knows just weird Seeing some do just like getting into character. And we're supposed to be acting like we're family. Or whatever like what i done up until that point was all much more like random things like mr white canton hansel and gretel and stuff like that you know what i mean so it was weird to try to like play family with a stranger especially as a little kid so stranger danger was a big part of life back then. But we're supposed to be fishing. And i say like the fish aren't biting and he has a piece of chicken and i was supposed to take a bite of the chicken and say i like this kinda biden classic dump them type comedy basically so.

I think fubu had just finished their line of like fat albert character clothing and stuff like that and then it did really well because it was such a retro kind of theme that everybody loves from their childhood and stuff like that so it just felt like you know an opportunity to do something big for the culture so as as How old were you when you started when i did fat albert. I was twenty five six. So you had a catchphrase. Hey hey What's it like to have a catchphrase. Do people come up with you and repeatedly. Oh yeah i mean when we were promoting that movie definitely people would run up you know when they when they saw it.

"Was my guest keenan thompson in a sketch from saturday night. Live so what was the saturday night live. Cast that you grew up watching the main one Honed in on for myself. Like i remember like watching over my dad's shoulder when i wasn't supposed to be when he was watching. Eddie murphy do hot tub and stuff. But my era was the Sammer farley years. In chris rock years. But they're sketches that you tried to memorize. Oh yeah. I mean that ex. That was like his first thing. That was like chris. Rock's character. I think they'll like his like almost one and only damn near And the van down by the river used to do a lot of that kind of just farley gesturing in general that he would do in a lot of sketches and yeah that that whole era basically tommy boy was like my favorite movie for forever growing up and i was big farley. Five twenty five years old. When you started on saturday. Night live. And i know you were told by novas lorne michaels other people who were doing casting. You told that you are too young for long-term you when you were told you were too young. How come you didn't take that as a hard no like. Sometimes people try to be polite and say oh. You're very funny issues that you're too young sali's alone you. That can be the implicit message to go away. I guess in that sentence you know allows for time you know it was like are too young right now so maybe at one point won't be too young and if that's the only argument then you know i can definitely wait out the time to where they think i look older and maybe i'll be funnier or more experienced or whatever so it didn't seem like a closed door or go away necessarily it just seemed like it's the second time definitely felt like a little more like maybe i should leave us alone but i don't know when i got the call that they wanted to let me try. I was like we'll absolutely. I'll try again for sure the first two times. It was like me knocking on the door. This the third time was them calling. So it's different. Yeah that must have been a great phone call absolutely terrifying but still great. Well let's take a short break here and then we'll talk some more if you're just joining us. My guest is keenan thompson. He's nominated for two emmys for his comedy performances on. Snl and for his starring role in his new sitcom keenan. We'll be back after a short break. I'm terry gross.

He's nominated for two emmys one for snl the other for her starring role on keenan. He won an emmy in two thousand seventeen for co writing the snl song parody comeback barraq. He's been on tv in one kind of role or another since he was a child. So now you're starring in a sitcom called keenan like we were saying before and you play the host of a local morning. Tv show called. Wake up with keenan and this is show with advice cooking. It's all very kind of light humor. Your wife has recently died so now. You're the single father of two young girls who are doing your best to raise with the help of your late. Wife's father played by don johnson. And your brother played by. Chris read who's also on snl and it's really hard for you to talk about your wife like the grief is still so so raw for you. So i wanna play a short scene from the first episode. You're live on tv on your show. Wake up with keenan in so you're hosting the show and you're co-host who's kind of proud of being shallow is there and your guest is a dula. Who's giving advice to women about childbirth. The number one thing i tell new moms is to have a birth plan but baby comes throw it out the window not the baby nova seriously. They did have it when my wife corinna and we can talk more about that. Because i'm sure the audience would love a personal story. Came in you know of course so we had a birthing plan for both of our babies but when that pain hit it went straight to hell telling you my wife was probably the first woman in history to get an editorial at zero centimetres. I will never let her living down. She was told. And i'll be like oh. We need to dual stack or we go to a restaurant say She'll have heels at the resort and avocado. I love that but all jokes aside moms should wait as long as possible for drugs if they can stand the pain. We call them away off now. What no it's just better for. The baby wasn't looking out for our babies. I'm sorry but my wife was an amazing woman. Okay and she gave birth to two beautiful girls. All right ellen thank you. And it's not like she took the easy way out and got a c. section. And then like that she clear. C sections aren't the easy way out. It's very serious surgery serious. No rain right now. I was joking. Joking jokey my wife used to even joke. She used to say Stay at home moms. Could just pop them things out at any time but she was a busy. She needed that. See susie my right emma tari. Are you criticizing. Stay at home. Moms know oh okay inclusion and just want to say Stay at home. Moms work harder than working moms know. They both work equally as hard All moms are heroes so it goes to the troops and stay at home. Moms and working moms are tied for second and nine eleven. I was bonus dimming mentioned nine eleven wizard come now i call beyond say that. Yes spiraling out of control. I love it you know. I think for anybody who is in a relationship and loves their partner or spouse that thinking about the possible. Death is just like so painful. Is it hard for you to do the show. And i mean you're married you've been married for. I forget how long eleven years may be going on ten year So is it hard for you to play the role of somebody who's just lost their wife..

"Road with prosciutto. Let's put myself through that. What was the music you grew up with. I grew up with My parents plan a lot of motown and You know soul. Music and stuff gospel of course and You know southern hip hop basically so a whole lot of outcast you grew up in atlanta where outcasts from exactly they went to my high school. Y- we're always very proud of that at our school. Do you have any nightmare. Moments from saturday night live that you wish were not preserved in history get i mean i have my nightmares early so they were things that never made it in to show. I guess because they were so green. You know. But i definitely had like a full fumble. Moment dropped the ball moment on sketch and just was way too green to know how to improv out of it and just let it die in being awkward situation. You know but those sketch got cut anyway so it just lives in the vault wherever it is but i have the scar of the memory for sure. Can you describe what happened Yeah it was called randy bellhop that a friend of mine wrote and it was you know. Probably my first season and there was a a line that i had that. I just fumbled. And i was showing like a couple into their room and of course like a ragtag hotel so like all the jokes were about everything kind of not working or being kind of fu gezi or whatever and i just fumbled this line super hard and it was awkward and silent in the studio so quiet. You could hear this one lady say all right well this is not great and you know i guess someone else in the scene just picked up the next line and and move it forward and we finished it out or whatever but i was like i dropped the ball on at for real and tank sketch pretty much because everything i said after that that i thought was going to get a laugh was just mediocre kind of chuckle and just the whole energy got sucked out of it so as my i fall on my face kinda moment but it got cut. You know what i mean. So it's kind of just an inhouse kind of a secret or whatever but yeah. I thoroughly remember in such. It got cut before the show is broadcast. Yeah got cut out of the live rundown basically so you're still in front of an audience. Yeah i mean dress-rehearsals in front of an audience so as to audiences. I guess and then they're separate between. Yeah in between shows you know we get the rundown of what's going in the show as if you're a kind of enjoy it when there's a little bit of a fumble or somebody breaks start laughing when they're not supposed to because it makes you realize that it's live and it also seems like they're really enjoying doing us and that makes me enjoy it more. Exactly what are the time john. Mullany hosted the show In he loves broadway musicals so there was a sketch. I think it was called a lobster diner lobster and so it said in a diner and pete davidson makes the mistake of ordering lobster. And he's like no. No no you never order lobster in a diner lobster and there's like no. Lobsters never good in a diner. And then it breaks into a parody of les miz in your the lobster. and who's going to be eaten. So you're singing about that. And you're in this big lobster tank like lobster claws lobster claws and everybody's laughing and you're just you're just like singing. It was the one of the most like just brilliant things like we were finally able to like bring the life because we done it at the table years before when john was a writer there and it tanked because it was just way too random so for some reason they brought it back and it just made all the sense in the world and it was like oh will double. We're definitely doing this. And i'm like that's funny because the first time we did you know it was just swept under the rug and didn't make it past the table and then dress rehearsal So i'm like john valjean who i am. Yeah there's you know i mean the giant lobster tank. And of course it's on so they have to push it through a door but you know of course they you know they didn't cut the door frame like very much bigger than the tank so when thing that is on wheels like when it rolls forward and rose backwards it changes direction until the wheels can like turn into the forward direction or whatever so that little shift to the left or the right came might get me stuck when i'm trying to get through the door if they don't set the wheels beforehand so of course address maricel. The wheels weren't set in the direction they needed for me to. Just go out straight. So it's shifted a little bit while he was trying to get the wheels turning straight and i was hitting the side of the wall. The crew guys were like hitting the side of the door with this giant tank while the music's playing and i have like six more beats before have to start singing so all you can see is like a tank trying to get through the door and there's fog and like these weird clause and like an antenna head. You can't even see it's me and they barely get me out right before after seeing my first line is like who am. I am me and eighty. We're talking about that in between shows and just dying laughing like it was so hilarious like we would love to know the answer to that question like what is happening here like who am. I was just so perfect. Why don't why don't we hear that. So here's kenan thompson doing A parody version of. Who am i. From les miz. Yes in the role of a lobster..

Thank you thank you for having me so i want to start with a clip from an episode of black jeopardy. Because that's always so funny and this is a very special episode black jeopardy that on play because it features chadwick bozeman as the guest contestant and for any listeners not familiar with this recurring sketch. Could you just explain the premise of black jeopardy I mean is basically in the title. You know it's the the black version like if if jeopardy was hosted and produced by a mostly black you know situation basically and this is to lean into that you know different jokes and stuff like that and what those joe premises are about basically would be in the black section of things instead of just the jeopardy section so they have it okay. So here's an episode of black jeopardy with of course keenan thompson hosting and The contestants are chris read leslie. Jones and chadwick bozeman but in the role that he plays in black panther to challah. All right. let's go with all hail. Naw for four honey. All right the answer. The airline says they want to charge twenty five dollars to check your bag. Shoney's what is all hail. Looks like.

Do i tell this man what i also assist him in tracking down the offender. Our ministers of law enforcement are only to protect us. Correct mean it should be. You haven't spent much time in america hear about today's practice so that was an episode of black jefferson hosted by my guess keenan thompson. Much fun. yeah and then of course listening back to chadwick bozeman. That must have been absolutely. I mean that was such an electric week. In general you know like the king chadwick was just blessing us with his grace number one because black panther was the biggest thing going at the time. And you know. He contributed and and gave all of his efforts in energy to our show like he did anything else. While he was promoting a movie of that caliber. It was just unbelievable to witness let alone being able to do. Like one of my. I know beloved sketches. You know with him in very close proximity and stuff. it was just. It was great. I was close proximity with him. That whole episode like we did a monologue together where i just thought i had a good idea to play pan throw from from the thunder cats back in the day so we built a full pam. Throw costume it was the most ridiculous thing in the world but i had fun and you know he was committed to that too. So the The thing about black jeopardy that week where we were trying to figure out exactly how to make his you know. Elevate from tom. Hanks who just destroyed it the last time so it was An uphill battle but we got there and he stayed you know in with us. He never liked got mad or frustrated. Or you know know just like going back and forth idea wise in the wrong direction or anything like that. He just trusted us to kind of find it and we did and you know all the credit to him you know he. He performed the hell out of it. He knew he was sick at the time that he had cancer. Did you know that absolutely not not. and so. What was your reaction when you later. Found out that you were working with him when he was actually very sick ages. It just floored me like the whole thing. You know it was just so crazy few months you know with like him and coby and like man. It was like a lot of things just coming out of left field but the fact that he was working so hard and he was so focused. Because in between you know rehearsal takes and stuff like that he was like practicing karate moves. You know what i'm saying. So he was always like looking like he had other things to do and stuff like that like as far as living is concerned you know. I never saw him coughing or anything like that. You know so him. Being you know of ill health was the furthest thing from my mind if anything. It looked like he just needed. Maybe vacation at some point but a super baller one because he was on top of the world. Yeah so how did you come up with the sketch for black jeopardy. Was that your idea. No it was. Brian tucker's idea in him in michael. J. collaborated on it and Just you know from the very beginning you know it was just very straightforward of what it was gonna be and when he originally pitched it to me. I was like you know. I hope they let us do it. Because you know we'll feral kind of territory is pretty sacred. So i just wanted to make sure if we were going to step anywhere near that kind of you know echoing of his brilliance. It had to be brand in its own and it definitely was it was just you know an opportunity for us to do a bunch of old school black jokes in a very smart way so it was. You know just very refreshing to to be to laugh at kind of older school humor. So let's go to twenty seventeen You want an emmy that year for outstanding original music and lyrics are the song comeback. Baruch which want. Why don't you describe what the video is like. This is like a song parody yet it was. You know reminiscent of the old school nineties. Kind of our be era with the joe to seize and you know Silks and all for one of the world and one twelve and all that kind of stuff And you know slow jams. you know. Big silky soups and canes and hats and sunglasses and slow motion walks and fans and you know deep voices trying to entice the the other side of the spectrum to maybe have a wonderful wonderful evening in the bedroom. Somewhere or something but we happen to be singing to barack obama to come back.
Kenan Thompson's On-Stage Serenity
"I'm friendly with bill. Hader who i think is one of the funniest people in the world. And he's such a huge fan of yours he talks a lot about you and your serenity kind of on stage. You're very. you're so happy when you're performing but you're also serene and that it's very comfortable to be around and he's ideas and sketches and thought man. I wish ticket. I wish i could channel more of that. Which is i think maybe the highest compliment absolutely. I mean that's amazing it. I guess i'm putting up a good front. Because i'm actually pretty terrified doing stuff at the same time are you. Are you really though. Because i don't. I don't pick up any of that energy from you mean you've been doing this. You started being a professional sketch performer on television. How old are you fifteen. Yeah my guy you know. We was doing like recording tape. You know what i'm saying. Like the live element is a whole 'nother level so true true. it's just. It reminds me of theater. You know what i mean like. You're so nervous before you do your play and then as soon as you get out there and say your first word like all of that stuff just goes away or whatever so i try to anticipate getting to that moment more opposed to be nervous but also get to shake my jitters singing the warmer up. You know what i mean. It gives me my chance to be in front of those strangers that are going to be looking at me or whatever and get past that you know what i mean and then i can focus on the actual work and i think it's different for people when they their first time seeing people for the code open or if they're in the monologue something like that it's just like all those jitters to that point and then it's about waiting on your i laugh. Yup hopefully the first thing you say is a laugh and you can just get through that. Here's the way. I look at it. And i look at it like a any audience. It's a blind date. do you feel that. That's a unique thing to comedy. Because like if you're doing mike shakespeare's shakespeare whatever. Yeah but comedy. You have to earn a reaction every time. Well i can't say with any authority. Because i'm not an actor i've never been actually been told not to shakespeare that was in the part basically look good in tights and they. They didn't like the little thing they wanna be gone. and it really wasn't shakespeare. I was just trying to talk to him. Entites and the whole thing creeped everybody out and then later my lawyer said let's call it shakespeare in the park.

You're in bearing wonder park rated PG now play. And then when being laid off it's just a lot of different emotions going around. So yeah, I'm four weeks into this this time, which is one week shy of the last time, I was laid off. So we'll see what happens soon. Anyways. I'm doing freelance stuff freelance writing freelance graphics website stuff. So anybody needs anything be sure to let me know on Twitter by adding me at SAP Twenty-one. So anyways in other news, we have the CW aero verse. And. It's kind of sad to see. It's starting to slowly close down. And compact it self in seeing the fact that arrows going away, but with aero going away, it leaves possibilities for new shows and next year, we're going to have crisis on infinite earths, we're going to have bat woman. We're going to have a variety of other shows. So it only opens up the window for new programs. I've heard where rumors that super girls going to get cancelled. And they're or they're going to shift it to superman being that they brought in John criers, lex Luthor recently. And I I don't know. I'm kinda wondering where this thing's going to go with us. Right. It's gonna go. Obviously, they're going to sacrifice Oliver based on the crisis on if the nurse crossover, and then kind of going from there to the actual crossover because they stated that they needed CARA and berry too. Survive the attacks ahead. But. Yeah. I don't know. I'm kind of I'm kind of hoping that we get to see something coming down the pipe for more more programming. And obviously, they don't have to have. Oliver green arrow, typically just totally one hundred percent disappear. I know that Cisco is going to leave the show at the end of the season. So it's gonna it's gonna really mix things up having all of these different scenarios going on. With the aero Verson. I have a feeling that despite everything else, it's it's not going to change the title of it from the ear overs to like the flash verse. Or or something else? I I really I really doubt it. But either way it's going to be an interesting road. And. Yeah, I mean, we'll see. So anyways, I saw that. Jeff Goldblum reposted this. And it was on somewhere. They had him. Mention a article from entrepreneur dot com where they said that in five years, we could possibly see our first dinosaurs by reverse engineering them from chickens, which I think by the way is a terrible idea. And that's when he he brought up this this quote of him from drastic park saying, you know, just because we can doesn't mean that we should you know? And I thought that was quite honestly brilliant on his behalf creating a meme from his own vocals that that. He he said, and I just I I don't know. I I thought it was kind of interesting. I don't think it's a great idea. But when has that ever stopped scientists or anyone else for that matter from crazy talk? So yeah, I it's it's it's getting interesting to say the least as far as all of that is concerned. So I did see captain marvel captain marvel was a good film. I had some gripes with it. It was mostly just because it was jarring in the story. It's not because it wasn't good and fun because I will preface that has nothing to do with the it's a female hero. I could care less.
