"kenny kramer" Discussed on Woz Happening!!!!

"Just going to take it over nowadays, people will have pride. They don't want to just roll over and play dead. But due to this war, many people are displaced. They've lost their homes, their schools, their work, and they have nowhere to go. So mad props to Poland, Czechoslovakia, and the other countries that are taken in these refugees and helping them out. But unfortunately, with this happening, the displaced Ukrainian women and children are actually susceptible to sex trafficking and sexual abuse. You'd hate to think that anyone would take advantage of the situation because of the tragedy, but let's face it, there are a lot of people out there that do not see this as a tragedy and actually see it as an opportunity to get more money from the use of other people. I know many people are watching this on television or TikTok or whatever streaming service that they're airing this on. And so you care. You honestly give a crap about what's happened is these innocent people. So I employ you to reach out to UNICEF or any other organization that you know of that's trying to help the Ukrainian refugees. Even the fund me pages, some of them are actually legitimate pages so you have to look into it and then donate money to help these people that really need it right now. So I don't know how many are aware of this, but Ukrainian president zelensky was actually on a comedy show called servant of the people where he was the president of the Ukraine. And it was wildly popular, and it was even popular in Russia. When he won the presidency, many of the Ukrainians didn't even vote for him. They voted against him. But his defiance of this Russian tyranny in this Russian invasion has been like a Beacon for the Ukrainian people to stand behind and let's not forget that they're in the situation because zelensky strongly wanted to join NATO so he could get more freedom for his people. These people are suffering and dying for seeking the same liberties. We take advantage of every day. Right now in America, there's a shortage of certain items that we can't get in due to export and input AI issues. And people are mad about that. And they're complaining. But imagine if you're a Ukrainian person, you don't even know where your next meal is coming from now. You don't know what's going to happen with your future. You have no home, no job, no way of knowing where your next meal is coming from. So I think honestly, America, you look kind of blessed and we should look to these people and try and help them as much as possible. I know right now in America, the oil prices are absolutely ridiculous. But what we need to do is honestly stop accepting imported Russian oil and open up our own reserves. I mean, we have the reserves. We have them in Texas. We have the mint, Alaska. And we need to stop totally any kind of association with Russia. And how are other allies come to us? And we can give them oil to help them too. I know America has been hesitant to tap into these resources, but if not now, when we've tightened the new sun Vladimir Putin's financial resources and a bunch of the billionaire resources in Russia, but if we tighten the new space, stop accepting the imported Russian oil, then our things might tighten up a little bit further Vladimir Putin on the front of the war and have him reverse his stance because let's face it, civilian non combatants would be in targeted and being killed and that's war crimes. We can't stand back on what this happened. We just can't. Not as human beings. To know that people that aren't even lifting a gun are being targeted and killed, execution style by these Russian soldiers is just disgusting. And Russia used a vacuum bomb, which is basically something that ignites the oxygen that you breathe. It doesn't just go out. It stays burning. There's nothing left of the person in the building that after it's been ignited. That, that is a weapon of mass destruction. And that needs to be addressed. This is something that NATO and the United States need to look at and say, hey, look, we don't want to go into conflict with Russia, but what is this that they're doing? They're basically exterminating people that get their point across. They're saying they're doing this to break the Ukrainian people's spirits, but in actuality, it's having the opposite effect. It's making them more resilient to wanting to fight the Russian occupancy. And people that haven't lived in Ukraine in years are actually coming back to help fight against the Russian invaders. I know not all the Russian people are behind this. On the news they showed an 80 year old woman basically being beat down in protest inside of Russia and some of the soldiers that are actually fighting in Ukraine are sabotaging their own vehicles and surrendering. They will lie to it which said their paperwork said it was just a military exercise and then later on was changed and invasion and war, and they didn't sign off of that. In all honesty, the mighty mushroom military does not look so mighty right now. I mean, in all honesty, it looks kind of silly. You know the big bully in the neighborhood and you just got punched in the face by the littlest guy and he's not afraid to take you on. The national anthem would be crane, just has one verse and one chorus. What it remains one of the world's mightiest patriotic songs. It was formula adopted less than three decades ago, following the country's independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. Its English translation is Ukraine has not yet perished. I'm going to read you the lyrics instead of trying to sing it and hurt your ears. Okay, it goes like this. The glory and freedom of a crane has not yet perished. Luck will still smile on us brother Ukrainians. Our enemies will die as the dude does in the sunshine. And we two brothers will live happily in our land. Will not spare either our souls or bodies to get freedom. And we'll prove that we brothers are of Cossack kin. If you watch the news, you can literally hear these people singing this at the top of their lungs as they going off the phase certain death against an overpowering Russian army. These people are true heroes and patriots to that country. That's what America was. That's when our revolution was going on. That's what our people did. We rushed off and tried to defend ourselves against the tyranny of another country. And that's exactly what these Ukrainians are doing. And I give them mad props. So if you go to UNICEF USA dot org, they actually have a site that you can donate money to the children of Ukraine who are displaced, which is I think a great thing. These children are going to be suffering for years after this with the emotional and traumatic damage done to them. So I'm going to read you a poem from our Ukrainian named ziri zidan called so I'll talk about it. So I'll talk about it, both the green eyes of a demon in the sky. And I that watches from the sidelines of a child's sleep, the eye of a misfit who's excitement replaces fear. Everything started with music with scars left by songs, heard at fall weddings with other kids my age, adults who made music adulthood defined by this the ability to play music as if some new note responsible for happiness appears in the voice as if this act is innate in men to be both hunter and singer. Music is the kamo breath of a woman tobacco scented hair of a man who pays for a knife fight with the demon who has just crossed the wedding. Music beyond the cemetery wall, flowers that grow from women's pockets, schoolchildren who peek into the chambers of death, the most beaten past lead to the cemetery and water. You hide only the most precious things in the soil. The weapon that ripens with wrath, porcelain hearts of parents that will chime like the songs of a school choir. I'll talk about it. But the wind instruments of anxiety about the wedding ceremony as memorable as entering Jerusalem set the broken sonic rhythm of rain beneath your heart and the dance the way they quench steep fire with their boots. Women who hold on to their men and dance, like they don't want them to go off the wall, eastern Ukraine, into the second millennium. The world is brimming with music and fire in the darkness flying fish and singing animals give voice in the meantime, almost everyone who got married then has died. In the meantime, the parents of people my age have died. In the meantime, most heroes have died. The sky unfolds as bitter as it is in the goals, novellas, echoing the singing of people who gather the harvest echoing the music of those who caught stones from the field, echoing it doesn't stop. I hope you enjoyed a little bit of Ukrainian culture. I shared with you this won't be a long podcast. I am doing another one tomorrow with Kira on urban legends from other countries and that's I'm looking forward to that. I would like to say I did lose a friend this week named Kenny Kramer. We were high school friends and which is very sad for him and his family so I said my condolences to that. Again, I do encourage you to send out any aid you can to the Ukrainian people and their suffering. The current food supply issue is you could also donate to any charitable organization here in America and you food pantry. I'm sure they'll accept anything right now. I'd like to thank you all just for tuning in to what's happening and making this possible. And we do encourage everybody that listens to us the data to be different. Be yourself, be an individual. Don't go with the crowd. Do what you feel is good for you and make yourself happy. Don't please other people because in the end, that's not how life is. Because if you go your whole life, letting other people dictate who you are, you'll never truly find out who you are. So tune in next time to love is happening..

"One two nine eight one seven two hundred is the phone number and we've been talking a little bit about some facts about Seinfeld but you might not have known and it's one of my favorite shows ever then the weird thing is I told you this before I never watched it in the eighties when it was on our nineties I should say I never watched it when I was on I didn't catch up with it until you know like couple years after was off the air Mr watching it on now syndication and now it seems like every episode seven hundred times so we're talking now Seinfeld here here's a Stephen WGN hi Steve well probably my favorite local woman is one creamer bought the shirt from the north myrtle Griffin Larry is I waited up for some reason legislators yeah I know it's Larry that's a that's a great episode that's a really really funny episode and yeah the the the the Merv Griffin sat all right just for the server all right thanks Steve there you go yeah the Merv Griffin said the weird thing is that was that late that's one of the later episodes of of Seinfeld in the later ones are kind of dicey the last couple of seasons not to not to not the strongest part of the show not the strongest era for the show all right here's another another little bit of trivia here three one two nine eight one seven two hundred have a favorite Seinfeld their character favorite Seinfeld episode or moment Seinfeld's Kramer was originally Kessler in the pilot episode creamers called Kessler as the real Kramer Larry David's former neighbor Kenny Kramer was hesitant to let his name be used for the show eventually the real Kramer relented though he says he was paid just a thousand dollars for the use of his name in the series Kramer has since profit in other ways namely with his Kramer's reality tour bus tour which is now in its twenty second year yeah that's for real the the actual the actual neighbor was a guy named Kramer for real and he does have the reality tour bus which is really crazy because they there's an episode where Kramer in in the yeah in the in the episode does the creamer Guzik cream reality tour bus as well I'm Michael Richards shoe wardrobe on Seinfeld didn't change ever for the entire run of the nine season series Richards were two identical pairs of black doc marten boots and that's it now I'm gonna have to watch it I'm now I'm gonna have to look at his foot in his foot where I never even noticed that here's one Jerry Seinfeld wanted Jake Johannsen to play George on Seinfeld though it's hard to imagine sign fell without Jason Alexander as George Costanza Seinfeld admitted that Alexander was not his first choice for the part in an interview with access Hollywood Seinfeld said that he had bagged fellow comedian Jake Johannsen to take the part but Johannson refused okay rumors this TV show me audition to play George on Seinfeld are not true for years it was rumored to Steve Shammi was one of our many soon to be successful actors who unsuccessfully auditioned for Seinfeld David Allen Greer was also in the mix as was David letterman's bandleader Paul Shaffer who said his autobiography that his resemblance to Larry David upon whom George is based was what made him interested in the shows the show's creators but on a two thousand fifteen episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon but show me address the rumor in his typical good natured way I never did the audition and I don't know how correct it is because I don't know how the internet works okay here's a bruise on WG harbors Hey indicate you and all right I got a thousand paper small little final moments well my favorite moments was just one episode were reckoned that the so George said on the couch eating popcorn and is it through why the music behind a great American hero right yeah he is a very popular yeah submarine popcorn where could I be yeah right I'm not home yet you may use on print no it's okay we're good okay thanks naira per sticker yeah I'm that's a very that's a very funny very funny ending to be observed as you sit there eating popcorn sing along with the greatest American hero theme song that's on his answering machine here's another little fact Jason Alexander didn't think Seinfeld had a chance okay sounds inner love the script for Seinfeld which is what I am about which is what made him question the shows potential to be successful from the moment I saw the script I thought it would be the most brilliant thing I've ever been a part of and that it wouldn't run for even a day Alexander told discrete news in nineteen ninety two because the audience for the show is me and I don't watch TV but I don't think anyone is more surprised by the success of Seinfeld than we are because we thought well we'll muse ourselves and that'll be it we'll have a videotape the end of the day and we can play it at parties where were they wrong I'm you are right you in nineteen ninety eight how old were you fought for five five right yeah yeah so you don't remember the finality no not at all the only show I don't I don't even really remember my parents watching Seinfeld alone I know my dad did he definitely dead because you he when they release it on DVD finally yeah he was like all right I need this I need all of Seinfeld I actually only remember them watching TV shows and I was that little and that was the drew Carey show and it I'm pretty sure the nineteen ninety eight bowls finals that's all I remember ever watching it yeah speaking of the the doubles finals anybody watching the last dance people are loving it man it's crazy it's it's weird because they turn Jerry Krause into the most hated man in Chicago how many years later yeah I know you know and I feel bad was gonna listen Horace grant who who said that the pistons when they walked off to do it when they walked off the court without shaking hands he was forced grant I think on the episode last night said they were straight up **** about the past yeah the the nineties bulls are seriously something man oh man yeah something else yeah but yeah Jerry Krause there there's a great video of one Michael Jordan gotten ducted into the basketball hall of fame yes it is all fame and he's giving a speech and he says there's a ton of people here Jerry Krause is here I don't know why I didn't invite him Julie pointing about literally a stadium full of people and you know ease the pot voted the it was voted the greatest athlete of the twentieth century Michael Jordan well yeah greatest athlete of the twentieth century just like the street up looking you in the face and saying I don't know why you're here yeah go away I wish you weren't yeah but he's not coming off good as far as I think as far as I know I'm not I'm not watching the documentary but yeah he's he's a complicated guy he's a lot more complicated than the Wheaties box want us to believe so yeah but yeah yeah I didn't know that the bulls eye I was it was a huge bulls fan this is so weird I was a massive bulls fan in the eighties and when they won in ninety one I kind of stopped watchin even during the even during that that the the ninety stretch so the primo time to be a bulls fan essentially no Regis yeah well no what happened was for me it when they won the when they won the championship in ninety one the first the first of the series of of championships in nineties when they won it that was great but I was more satisfied with them beating the pistons because every year the pistons would would would just stop the balls every year we're jerks yeah the Jordan rules man so when they swept the pistons I was like okay I'm done that was a head that was your goal I'm done oh my god they swept the pistons I think I'm a I'm a happy man now I will say I did I've got a for some god unknown reason I've got real soft spot for the bad boys well known bad boys pistons no phone marginal no no no no no little bill Laimbeer now ask all no no don't even bring up that man's name I I hated the pistons knowledge might god did I hate them so how about that there was one episode of Seinfeld where Jason Alexander did make an appearance he wasn't happy about it in all of Seinfeld's one hundred seventy two episodes there's only one in which Alexander doesn't appear the season three episode the pen which has Gerry and Elaine visiting Jerry's parents in Florida and Jerry getting an astronaut pen from the neighbor nervous it being written out of the episode meant that he could be written out of the show Alexander warned Larry David if you do it again do it permanently wow take it easy Jason Alexander well man he's the best character on the show I know but come mine when a little touchy just enter he was gonna go back to doing big deal T. cells yeah man.

"New day and time you know I give a lot of thought to who would be the first guest I would want to interview on this new program that I knew time a lot of people listening for the first time and I thought to myself Gee what is it that we want to say about our show and then as I was thinking to myself many of you listeners wrote to me an email and tweeted to me that the thing that best sums up our show in one word is nothing and I've got an enormous compliment because the greatest TV show of all time is supposedly about nothing in that show of course is Seinfeld the hallmark of that show one quarter of what it made what made it so great was the character of Kramer but right now I'm very very pleased to be joined by an old friend of mine man whose gracious enough to be our first guest on this program in a new time the one and only Kenny Kramer the real life basis for Kramer Kenny thank you so much for coming on the radio with means more my pleasure thanks for inviting me in this new exciting time slot he feels who I would guess insomniacs and the people who get up early exactly that's that those are two key demos it which is a nice change from one thirty two AM where we were appealing only to what two drunks and people that left the radio on by accident before going to bed the most that it demographic and I'm thrilled to be with him now we call you the real Kramer and I think everybody in the world has seen Seinfeld what does that mean you the real Kramer I will explain that to folks the character of Kramer was based on me because of the fact that my across the whole neighbor for about five or six years was a gentleman named Larry David and I got Larry this apartment across the hall we were friends from the world of stand up will doing stand up at the time and I got in this apartment across the hall from me and he lived there for a period of time and you know one day Jerry same approached him about helping to write a TV show and he came up with this whole concept of Seinfeld and he basic character George on himself he lane is based on a platonic ex girlfriend is his name Meineke aids and and I'm Kramer and who knows that the whole time you lived across the hall he was taking notes because so many of the things that happened in real life ended up becoming adventures and story lines in the show what would you say is the greatest similarity between you and the fictionalized version of yourself well you know Larry knows you like a book so a lot of the characters me you know the golf the entrepreneurs in the sex without dating you know that the I. I'll plead guilty to all of that but of course Michael riches to play Kramer ended this ingredient of physical comedy you know I I I don't do physical comedy as a as a stand up comedian I'm just I talk I'm funny and I get great less but I just talk I don't do those crazy movements that Michael version and that little ingredient in the character Kramer's were really brought it's a lifeless had I play Kramer which I was lobbying for the part the show would run right down the tubes but Michael made the demographic of the show appeal to anybody you know kids seven years old that don't understand a lot of the jokes you know that when he's bouncing off the walls as funny you know that's so funny I think a lot of people may not realize that you played yourself in do you try to play yourself and Seinfeld that was actually sat arise when they were doing a pilot for the show Jerry where the character of Kramer wanted to play himself in the show you're actually in that episode right I know yes and it's funny because Larry invited me out there you know and I said look this is the the show you're gonna have Jerry the show within the show you're gonna have an actor who plays an actor playing Kramer writing those yeah so you think I could be right to that Kramer and this is all I have somebody much better than you as it turns out he did the guy who played Kramer the actor playing Kramer was it was hilarious and you looked a lot like Michael so that the only time that Seinfeld kind of borrowed from your real life it means we all remember the famous muffin top episode which is these these Peterman reality bust doors that's based on something that you do right yeah and I'm still doing it seventeen years later every Saturday the Kramer reality tour for cycle fans even for people who aren't science opens the you know the show that I do a grim reality stores funny with you of course if you're a fan of the show you get more out of it but you know people who drinks but bring Greg spouses or friends or relatives that have never seen signs will have a great time because there's enough generic funny in it to occupy them but yeah they supposed to tour they had like a lot of the ingredients thirty seven fifty three hours long comes as a surprise Izzard which was a frozen snacks for and everybody gets original frame a famous pizza which might piece it was really quite good serve them pita bread his piece of who served on pound cake seems to work hi folks if they there instead of the sign up for the tour have the book a day are you just go to Kenny Kramer dot com and there's a link to the book online and for any of your listeners who might want to come please you got a book in advance like I'm already sold out for the twenty eighth of December some some some you know around holiday time we sell quite far in advance so you just go to Kenny Kramer dot com and you know there's a link there's a picture of a bus in the Lincoln that'll take you to booking pays for you pull down the menu to the date and if the date is there at doesn't say sold out there's still some seats for years we would watch Seinfeld through the muffin top episode for the pilot episode and the one thing that was always consistent is that Kramer you know never really seem to have a real job and we learned years later that it was because he was on strike from at a bagel store it what was that part based on you or you want striking a bagel store no but you know Graham had ways of making money he made money betting on horses he had the hit the coffee table book about coffee tables he had that necktie that rolled out like toilet paper he has the we had a lot of entrepreneurial ventures into very did returning the cans the the the deposits I don't I don't know that he netted a profit on mon most of those at I mean if only he would have gotten around to catch up and mustard in the same bottle that might have done it in your life living across the hall from Larry David did you have a job would you would you do for a living well I was a stand up comic for many years and vented this electronic jewelry their souls fabulously well and and I I develop decided that like quest with thirty cents so for fifteen dollars so you know you so bunch of them and that sort of mock up and I was doing okay I was actually retired at the time that the science social started being when I realized frame is become the biggest thing of a history of next door neighbors we go outside of communication on it and that's when I created the reality tour which started in January twenty seventh nineteen ninety six now do you stay in touch with Larry David your old neighbor yeah sure he's got a he's had another hit show on HBO which I think is is almost as funny as Seinfeld the one missing ingredient on that might be you know he said Michael Richards on that show he said the actor playing Kramer but no real life can be Kramer and I am not many references to you on that show how come again he's in a different world out in LA now and you know what he was doing those episodes of New York I was in Mexico at the time so I didn't have a chance to really get in there you know I've been a Larry is the same guy he was when he was my friend you know in nineteen seventy nine he drives his own car this villains arise you call them the answers is following you leave a message to call you back within a few hours he's I am very happy to say he's he's a good guy and you know the fact that he's so credibly wealthy hasn't really changed much in in his personality as the same friends he had forty years ago so he has a plane waiting on the tarmac for one twenty four seven but you know other than those perks that come with big time money Larry is the same guy and whatever and Jerry also same guy you know to really hasn't affected their lives and in terms of you know who they are and and the spirituality what is the money what what is the biggest thing about Seinfeld that people don't know that you can share with us I know you give all sorts of inside scoop tell the stories behind the stories on your on your tore but what can you share with our listeners that they may not know about the series well you know all the stuff they were wouldn't know about the features of the premise of the reality to a you know the thing that I tell about how Larry was ordering the hair growing panic from China and the invaded the speak English and the Chinese delivery boy came to bring us dinner any put him on the phone the sense of the stop to smell horrible and I made of before video of it which was you know in an episode exactly the way it happened in real life in fact you know for those you listen as you can get on the tour this is a DVD the Kramer reality to a DVD and one of the things I put it in his bonus footage was the actual video that I shot of Larry's bald heads as well yeah right there you can see that I've got to see that now doesn't things like that that that's the premise of the reality so in your view what is it that makes Seinfeld so special it's kind of tough to put your finger on it I mean but it's not that tough to put your finger on it it's very easy to put your finger on it funny is funny and and the thing that people so who's going to get this except the Yorkers well turns that this show is a hit in ninety countries right now on my tour because of the advent of the release of all the science of DVDs twenty five percent of the people are international visitors twenty five percent and and and and you know was still use Z. with his Colombians Mexicans a lot of Brazilian Dominicans masquerading as Cubans we get a lot of Swedish people come German people so you know the show obviously translates foods of many different cultures of many different languages and and they're all enjoying it okay me I'm still in this is can you you ran for mayor back in two thousand one is a Libertarian Party candidate any thoughts at the in the future about getting the dipping your toe back into the political end of things no I don't think so I think I I took my shot in politics it was a lot of fun you know unfortunately you know just as the campaign was about to get into into the height of the campaign I was already on the ballot that nine eleven happened on primary day I was waiting to see who I was running against the you know I had a lot of very funny stuff in my campaign and and the kind of you know the severity of the situation kind of took a lot of wind that my sales and you know just wasn't appropriate to be supercilious and funny at the time and but it was an interesting experience I got to be in the debates you know it was and where I'm not sorry I did it all but the the Libertarian Party asked me if I would run for governor and and then that would not only would that be Kelly campaigning all over the state but it would just take a lot of time and and the futility of it because you know let's face it the Libertarian Party disaster with the mayor of the of the your some of their ideas are just a little too wacky for the general public even in New York City anything else you're up to now that's exciting the folks would be curious about well not really I have a show that I do quote Kramer on Seinfeld which is a stand up version of the reality too is that I do it deters colleges corporate events I also go out to corporate events and I talked to to deferred the corporations this sales apartments or whatever and I I build myself as a D. motivational speaker right take the stress out of people's lives

you said they gave you some money when I mean they gave you someone else scholarship money all because of my intelligence was that what it was because because it might tell did it wouldn't anything no

I put you on the spot Vince in your local treasure but that wasn't fair to duty your any local trade. like now. no that's right so you guys did stand up together correct yes I yeah my certificate well that's the first place we met where did you start did you start at the cottage of the wall no the first place you and I were together it was at a club called Freddy's and he was a pizza place in the VFW hall but they also did stand up comedy that's where you and I work together for the first time and do you remember who hosted those shows vents. what was it a Debbie wardrobe it was a dirty word run room what what town was the center because it was up north hello okay was it. right. maybe a little further north but yeah yeah somewhere around there the MC was a man who billed himself he called himself Mr Vegas and he wore a tuxedo and had very very very bright teeth and bright hair and he treated the show as though it was going on somewhere in Las Vegas. I do remember that now yeah. dance who was Mr Vegas are Vegas was the host of the show and he would get sent that he would give you advice Vegas C. advice like you got to face the audience all right yeah that was always right if you need me to face wow this club had pizza Mr Vegas of yeah W. hall anyone else you can see where the world of stand up comedy would appeal to the guys like Vince myself because like you said everything was there everything. what more do you need. no Vince did you get into comedy before Beller bill you were before him Vince was before me yeah I started it now. I bet that's what started this whole ball the everything I'm doing it I it's I've realized that on August twenty sixth nineteen eighty two out with the first time I went up on stage at the comedy cottage which would make this my my thirty seventh anniversary and Hey you know what a thirty seven now that's. that's a milestone. but you know it's. thirty five forty though the dumb number thirty seven nice round number right hi the beauty of your posts vencer for people don't know Vince has on his Facebook page she's been posting for the last couple weeks little remembrances of his career and it really is a beautiful time capsule of the simpler more gentle time in the world of comedy. not only that it's really bring a lot of comics out of the what what's so funny bill I was only gonna do it up until the twenty six yeah yeah but I mean I'm only up to nineteen eighty six now you know I got decades ago and I could spend up five more posts just on nineteen eighty six so I'm just gonna keep doing as though I were not about because it's bringing a lot of other comics and there are because they tell stories that reminds me of more story so it's really fun in these stories until now on your Facebook page were never written down you didn't have them banks somewhere these are just in your head they're float around your head right. yeah there are what I do is I have I have a thing where I start I took out my calendar that was wonderful they took my calendars and I wrote the first time I went through the first time I work every world and I have those that kind of a guideline that I use but I don't even have them well I just start like like today I haven't done yet because I mentioned that I got started that they need yesterday what an eighty six them the people that I've met the work of expert on to other I won the one today and it was all the all the zany comedy clubs throughout the years that I worked then the next one gonna be about all the different comedians I worked at things throughout the years. so I mean one one sport down like three or four other one I love reading these first of all I like you a lot I think you're funny and I go way I treasure well here is a local treasure. I grew up I went to every high school I grew up in Brookfield and and lions annoy there was the comedy womb and I went to junior high with Carla fully show who was a stand up comic at the time and we would go to the comedy womb every Thursday night because that was open Mike nights they would give you free pizza which was date pizza palace was this great place an alliance they had really good pizza and I would go with Carla and I would learn that you're not supposed to heckle people I just felt like yeah I can do there so she told me never to do that again yeah there were people there like bill Hudson that's a name I remember Bob Odenkirk Jeff Garlin there were people that would just go in in beautiful Lyons Illinois yeah it was such a great place and then when I first met Vince I had take I worked at the loop radio station and I had tickets to go to an art gallery opening in oak brook and Yoko Ono was gonna be there promoting all of John's new like little doodling sandy dead and I said Carl if you want to go with me and she's like no I'll take a pass but I have this friend vents who loves the Beatles and I think that's our that was our first and only date and that's how we met each other we drove to Oprah. there was a date. well now a friendship days. no one ever go on dates I go into my don't even. I didn't even know you and we went to the and we had a great time. yeah we drank I have by rebel we each track like two glasses of champagne were blown away stupid little champagne. I was in our presence right. that was cool Vince do you remember this about the comedy woman Lyons underneath the company one was this restaurant and I remember March you felt the guy who ran the comedy William said you know you're gonna do your time he said but sometimes when you're working here you'll have to help me break up a fight that was out of the palace so what would happen is they would do wedding receptions and this happened twice when I was there Vince I don't know if it ever happened when you were there but twice during the show he would get a call and he would pick four five guys we go downstairs and break up a fight at a wedding reception did that ever have extra for though there is no extra pay for that. no I never had that wow I've done I've done it all. that's great you have to go down that rickety iron spiral staircase yes. yeah. I wrote about that what about that the first time I went there it. this old black metal staircase that you go up and next door brick wall when it was all dark and I said I went out walking up the first time like well this is what a comedy club should be and are. yeah now the other one I'm sorry. then too I was thinking about this fact then to you know everybody smoke everywhere yeah. I can't believe what I was married at the time my wife knew what room I left my sport coat and when she was walking down the stairs this from the smell of cigarette. it was that bad he wrote about zanies and you said some a couple of interesting things but not most notably how uncomfortable you were with the room in the early days that it took you several years to get comfortable in that room why do you think that is I don't know I don't know I I it was very intimidating the fact that it was done all kinds of the other clubs that I mean that was what was around for forty years yeah well you know it's got the mystery but that was like V. that was like the a room yeah I mean everything else was either showcases are one nighters and an occasional you know like like three or four night rooms but that with the world I don't know the woman in the suburbs my whole life I mean I like I said the pope I was actually intimidated by the drive I would get off of ninety and North Avenue in my stomach would start getting old Crowley if everything I mean I just never did a lot of city stop do you because like I I don't know who you would go to see before you were a stand up but for me like when I was in college whenever I would go to see Richard Lewis or Jerry Seinfeld or Jay Leno it was at that club at zanies on wells and when I started working there it the realization is all this is real now I'm I'm working in rooms that the real guys working. exactly I saw Richard Lewis there too that's a funny I everybody you much and I went to downtown Dany's before I started comedy to do out that was very dramatic me up I saw now is name escapes me from Barney Miller land the land is done. I just I still see when it's Burke at at Harper college this is a book for like a year or so before I started yeah and I I thought it was so cool that he looked at his watch and goes Hey you know what if you wanted to ask me any questions if you want to do any better that you bird if you want to share a story with me I thought wow at the time of the weather was so cool in retrospect I look back here doing our short cut right but as you know it the only good at all. hello this is gone. it's the first time I was lucky enough to headline at that detainees zanies on wells I got home and it's about three thirty in the morning and I'm getting out of my car at the same time my next door neighbor Tommy who was a wedding DJ was getting out of his car and I'm dressed kinda like the way I always dress to pull of certain genes he's wearing a powder blue tuxedo because I'm not going for DJ so he looks at me because it's three thirty in the morning and he just nods his head he goes show business why do we do it. for different reasons I think. yeah right right Vince I we would love to have you in the studio but it's kind of a long haul to come down here today and Friday traffic the air and water shows going on I know I know I know well it does some jazz but I live in Woodstock now when you guys are no stranger to of that trip having done it a couple weeks ago yeah yeah we should have on them yeah perfect timing is nothing in this to. I was going to surprise you guys stop by it but then I got busy and that I never got around or not sorry he's thought about it again and now I'm going to do it my son Michael and I watched Mike and Molly all the time and I'm telling you he's so enamored with the story that there's a character named Vince Morocco and I said that's named after a real guy but that's not him he loves that so he never listens to our show bill but because Vince is on thing today it was so that what you did a year for your treasure is gonna be out. local charges on there it just was so funny to hear the first episode I watched of Mike and Molly into here yeah and this is Vince Morocco I we all chuckled. it's so funny because what here originally when mark world the the character are you wanted somebody with a strong Chicago Italian name like bin the more I thought that I would threaten and everybody kept throwing names out he's like no I don't like that no I don't like that they got all the way up to the taping of the what what we could do and Carla your ex roommate was one of the writers at the time and mark gross another guy that I knew which one of the writers and they were like that just use bent his name out of the. like a water to up so character but the guy in that being on the on the show the entire time yeah it didn't your dad get even bigger charge then you out of it because your dad's also named Vince for auto that must have been a thrill for him yeah he's a real but probably won't hear something weird that I found out later if you watch the very first episode of Seinfeld yeah his neighbor is named Hassler not Kramer really I found out what I ate because the real Kramer and the Seinfeld people had not come to a monetary term to be able to use his name and I'm like wait a minute you can use in your. there was a guy named Kenny Kramer right who is a friend of Jerry yeah ed and Larry David yeah all right yeah yeah right it was back then. even get paid for your name..

"Family councils are you I love because I had one probably in twenty years no yes me to tell you the difference to the calzone and Stromboli and up against an early Stromboli is more calzones just the pocket with cheese and adding a fancy hot pock but Stromboli it's kind of a built into the layers in a tube is a Stromboli more of a tube I don't think we do unless something the similar at all really I'm only is more like pizza bread right right now Maria alright here we go to any music I guess they're similar there was a tally and there will be already they both have filling a Stromboli the is the sauces baked in and with cal zone it's served on the side of the pink sauce but other than that they're they're pretty similar once the deal okay so here's some fun facts about Seinfeld you know what despite its reputation in the way drawer Jerry and George pitch their show within a show on Seinfeld remember they were like it's a show about nothing the show Seinfeld really wasn't intended to be about nothing on the pitch for the show the real patch when Larry David and Jerry went into NBC in nineteen eighty eight was they wanted a show to show how a comedian gets his material the show about nothing was just a joke in an episode many years later and he says that to this day they're surprised that it actually caught on as a way that people describe the show because it's really the opposite of that yeah I get that Elaine is not in the first episode she's not in the pilot in her place as a waitress at the diner named Claire hello she was fired in the reason why remains of some dispute hello really some people said it was because he thought a waitress character would never be at one of the gang and George order has claimed it's because the woman who played the waitress provided Larry David with unsolicited rewrites of the script yeah that that was in the pilot that's the time to lift people yeah we're out you know it's hard to imagine somebody different than Jason Alexander playing George Costanza he was not the first choice and Jake Johannsen let's look him up Jake Johannsen I think he's a comedian Jerry really wanted him to play the part but he refused it yes really he doesn't look like George Larry David has long been considered as George Costanza's character right like the the inspiration but Georges last name actually comes from Jerry Seinfeld's former friends Michael Costanza he wasn't thrilled about it not only did he write a book entitled the real Seinfeld as told by the real Costanza in nineteen ninety eight but that year he also sued Jerry Seinfeld wow and Larry David an NBC four hundred million dollars accusing them of slander libel and on authorized use of his name likeness and persona days George is bald I'm bald he told ABC news Georges stocky I'm stocking George and I both went to queens college with Jerry George's high school teacher nicknamed him can't stand yeah so did mine George had a thing about bathrooms in parking spaces so why the case was thrown out though it's kind of interesting is can I throw one in there yeah Roemer was originally cast slur in the pilot episode Kramer is called Kessler as the real creamer Larry David's former neighbor Kenny Kramer was hesitant to let his name be used for the show that's not real creamer relented though he says he was paid just one thousand dollars for the use of his name in the series no way really Kramer has since profit another ways namely with his Kramer's reality tour bus tour now in its twenty second here what is a Kramer what is his first time as well there you go got it the soup **** was based on a real chef who really did not appreciate the gag his name is al you Ganna known as the original soup man and he worked in New York with the famous set of strict rules that would result in no soup for you if you didn't follow the rules fun that's pretty funny so this was in midtown Manhattan and he went on CNN and cold I don't know he called the soup **** a clown he got fame through me I made him famous whole areas do you know I didn't appreciate Seinfeld until it was in syndication I respect that I was just like what is this this is so dumb the same will be said some do for Ryan and friends he doesn't watch friends yet but once he does that he'll do a deep dive and held really push it out Seinfeld I I took care of that as like a high school I would really went through every episode and god therefore I do love curb your enthusiasm that is so funny here this is interesting remember Susan at the end of the show's seven season Susan George's fiancee dice filer envelopes by looking poisonous by invitation our bill of some lunch after yes is idea that was Susan's know Julie as well Louis Dreyfus yes yes my god she the actress who played Susan had comedic instincts that clashed with his with Jason Alexander's and each other wow what a drama there I well how about this for non drama there's a strict no hugging no learning policy Larry David made sure that the cast and crew were aware of his no hugging a learning model for the show which meant that they should avoid any sort of sentimentality or situations that would force the characters to change or grow what's he says a lot of people don't understand that Seinfeld is a dark show if you examine the the premises pregnancies terrible things happen to people they lose jobs somebody breaks up the stroke victim somebody stole the new nose job that's my sensibility triste so no full house moments at the end you know Donnell additional play lane that would have been a totally different show different listen to this the on the cast of Seinfeld found themselves in a book bizarre feud with Roseanne Barr and Tom Arnold who was her husband at the time when Julia Louis Dreyfus advertencia parked in Tom Arnold's parking spot on the CBS lot where they both films he left a no on her windshield that said how stupid are you move your bleeping car you believe which promoted the actress to confront him I'm sorry prompted her to confront him and all my gosh somebody left a picture of their **** on her windshield with though I got it just went on they had this feud going on just in the parking lot interesting stuff will only the subsidy on these little fun facts about Seinfeld on the thirtieth anniversary of the show one point seven billion dollars sold into syndication her that amount of money mine holy that was in nineteen ninety eight that may Jerry Seinfeld the top earning celebrity of the year Seinfeld turned down one hundred and ten million dollars for season ten that would've been five mill in episode ten to come back for a tenth season they offered five million an episode allegedly wow it's okay I think they they left when they should have I I didn't really care for the last episode June now I mean but I do get it it makes sense they were terrible people nothing changed they were still terrible people at the in the end as it's been described about this I'm just gonna read this call the series begins and ends with buttons my take binge watching the series to realize that the very first conversation Jerry and George have in the pilot in their last conversation the finale or about a poorly placed button and are almost verbatim of each other same opening conversation that's an interesting conversation about that it's just cyclical just about nothing right yeah back to square one yeah didn't go anywhere this really does make me want to go and watch from Seinfeld episodes who's coming over well I got your TV on really I think I saw your TV universal sign for is there a lawyer we'll keep you around for a little while when we come back we'll have some of our favorite stories of the day at like this couple who was

"Yeah. Was there ever attempt tation or a push by exacts to hire an actor to actually bring him to life or portray him? Well, first of all as most of the people on Seinfeld as true of both of the people outside most of the characters most of the character's names. He's a real person. Right. So Robert Sacramento actually exists. He's a friend of mine from Trump village items instead started grave, so he's a real person. He was not happy actually become Bob Sacramento. This kind of cult figure. Uncomfortable. But. I'm sure there was talk of it maybe at one point or another. But it was one of those things that really worked Newman originally was an unseen character. But we need it. We need it for story. We needed to see him and Wayne came in and disagree audition that Newman became a character on the show, very organically. There was no real plan. But Bob second nothing really came up that seemed like it was it was funnier to have them be the unseen friend to actually visualize them. Well, it's kind of like, you know, when they start bringing a match Inari characters to life, and it's like when they had Mrs Colombo. Always look pita folks, say all my wife, we I she failed jumped and that was funny. This person you hurt Colombo talk about. But then when she became real. It's like, you know, what the fuck is that far the culture of Seinfeld after a while was figuring out Lloyd Braun was a real person than Joe devote Josie was a real person and was a real person so many. Yeah, that's true. The writers as we start up. Sometimes absolutely. Both those people very happy to to be Dame checked, even if they were playing a psychotic character with their name. They're usually pretty thrilled about it. And they found that guy. I think he was a friend of Larry's named George Costanza. I think Jerry's. Yes. Kenny. Kenny kramer. Well, you must have known Gilbert. I'm sure you Kenny Kramer. Oh, yes. Yes. Yes. He's still around. And any Kramer? He's around. What when I was a teenager. And I would go up to the Catskills. He and I think you'll be you could probably confirm this. He was one of the biggest comedians at that time. He was actually kind of an upcoming very popular comedian and actually very arrogant in those days in the Catskills because he was kind of a big star. You know, he would do all those showcases and he was getting a name for himself. And I remember him very well from that period. That's when Marvin Brauman, and I know that name they were all doing the stand up at that time. It was it was kind of fun in the Catskills at that point. What was the other guy around to the guy with Barbara feldon, your buddy man, body, Mantilla Mantilla, another guy untouchables the yes, I saw them. I saw them at the Brickman showcase. You know? I was a Bill hop at the Brickman. I saw them perform at the at the Brooklyn, showcase and mousy Lawrence. She's the host of high the pint showcase there's a funny. Watch this segue. Speaking of comedy teams talked about the untouchables. By the way. This is also on behalf. Our engineer. Frank, verte, Rosa. We love the comedians. Thank you. Thank you. There was some very funny stuff in there. And really funny. It just did not click forever is. I don't know. I I know that was funny stuff. Those two guys were great together. It just not appeal to anybody. I can't explain it. Really? I thought that it would be satisfied to an audience, but never really never really coincided with you on a fun idea of the mismatch comedy. You know? Yes, boys, kind of guys willing to be very dark of butter their personas also. Yeah. And our friend Steve Webber doesn't nice turn on that on that show as well. Steve Weber's great. But we do want to ask you since been Castillo came up, and this one's for you Gill. Yeah. Have you seen the but in lieu TV movie with buddy Hackett and Harvey Korman? I of course, I have. The topic.
