My clients started turning into therapy sessions instead of tax appointments and so it all started to become really clear to me that we're all working on these unconscious emotional money beliefs and money blocks we've been carrying since we probably five six years old and we have the unpack that for many of us to go forward.

After six years, I thought we were gonna be the best comedy team in American And that was my are Michael Tim one to be more of an actor. That woman broke up the act to be honest with you, but that's in the book. It is. Then after that, I ended up on the West Coast. You know, you know that because everybody gravitated To the West Coast in those days because Johnny Carson was in New York as the host of the Tonight Show, and when he went to the West Coast, That's where the comedians all gravitated cause one of germs on the thinks so, and your career was launched One appearance. Freddie Prince got a sitcom the next day. I didn't want to parents and CBS send me to a development deal the following day, and I was on my way. I never stopped working after that first tonight show But getting to the Tonight Show you had to go out on the West Coast and try to get on at the comedy store. In those days. There was no improvisation there Laugh factory. It was the only game in town and I'm telling you comedy in the seventies was a rock and roll of the seventies. Every night. Someone was getting discovered at the comedy Sir. I was on stage every night with all these unknown comedians. David Letterman, Robin Williams, Jay Leno Gallagher, Michael Keaton. The girl Waiting tables was Debra Winger. Yeah, that was great. And there's great stories about all these people that have been a part of your life in the book, of course, is well, but you talk about the comedy store. Being the only place that people would you know, really be discovered. It was the one place to go that if you got there, you were going to make it somewhere. But then you talk about Carson and you know 60% 70% of households were watching the Tonight show with Johnny Carson. And you're absolutely right. If Johnny loved you You had a career. You had a life 26 million people watch that show. Dave. I can't tell you what the pressure was. You know, I've always worked on. Yes, I told you already be positive mental attitude book I could, and I worked on being a calm Comedian who enjoyed being on stage. You know, I always used to use the the same actors if you are and you will be so I would act as if I was a very confident stand up comedian and I became one. I began to love the stage and love stand up comedy and had fun on there had always had fun every night, but that first tonight, so I can't even describe to you what that's like. His 26 million people. Watch that show if you when you when you're walking out on that show Every agent manager's Vegas buyers sitcom producers, Everybody watched that show, so one appearance could couldn't make the difference. I was in the unemployment line the night before I went on that show, and so the pressure is enormous. And not only that my mother had everybody in Harvey watching this show, so if I bomb I couldn't even go back home. Yeah, right. Exactly. Well, Ed McMahon gave you some great advice before you walked out on stage. Yeah, I was just before going on. He should remember. You know, let me digress. I get bumped three times make up and I got bumped the fourth time I'm in makeup and said the Cordova came in the producer. And then then make up and he said, I got bad news for you. And I said What he said you're going on. I don't want that story. Now you get a lump in your throat the size of a grapefruit, you know? Yeah, but ethnic man just before I went on, he said to me and I've done it my whole career, said he said, Tommy, have fun. And the audience has fun, have fun out there and the audience will have fun. It doesn't matter what's going on in your life. Just you gotta set it aside, right? Genocide and now will care even if it isn't working. I tell young comedians have fun. The fact that it's not working, and then the audience relaxes with that. So look like you're having a good time. You know that Mitzi Shore gave you the big break of the comedy store. Carson gave you the huge break on the Tonight show. But it was Sammy Davis Jr that gave you a boost as the National touring Act, it was Sami Yeah, when it was interesting. He had a TV show called TV show called Sammy and company that was filmed out of Lake Tahoe at Harrison Lake Town, and I wanted to do the show because I had seen Sammy perform and there was no one like him on the stage. He was just incredibly electric, and I wanted to do his show and I finally got on his show and I prepared a routine. Of me growing up in Harvey playing basketball in all black basketball team playing football on not like football team and all the routines are being the only white guy in an all black situation, and Sami fell off the couch laughing and it was just one of those nights. It was just hot and he told me he said, I'm gonna take you on the road with me. And he took me on the road for three years and taught me so much about our business, you know? He had more business.

"Or manage no. I still got him. So the the best thing i ever heard about it was that it's part of a kit that comes with a creative aspect to the brain that a tendency to depression seems to always accompany that. I read that like twenty years ago and that really made me happy. So i realized well i wouldn't have all this other good stuff without that. That's just comes in the kit that you have been a tendency to depression. But i think it's fair to say that i don't know a human that doesn't have the tendency. I'm sure it varies. I have a number of friends who are in comedy and a lot of them are afraid of getting any type of treatment or taking antidepressants. Because they worry that it would rob them of their comedic insight. I don't know if that's something you've run into yourself. Or is it more that you accept it as a natural byproduct or companion to the sensitivity. I would agree with a a chemical intervention in Stabilize your mood. I would be nervous about that. Also and the ties. Which does you know as we all know. There are many other better remedies that you know. Basically a pair of running shoes is probably better than any of the drugs. They have on the market depending on the severity. of course. yeah or at least make sure that you're adding those elements into your life. Since i think we all know people who take anti-depressants in our stole depressed so it's worthwhile to kick off the bigger boxes behaviorally speaking you don't think depression it's really a creative source. I think irritability crankiness right not depressed. Depression's just an annoying thing. We have the alwa. You gave me a quote. I'll ask you one more question and then we can. We can go a little more. I'm joining the such. Let's go let's do it. I'd love to ask about following up on depression. I love to ask about failure just to keep this bright and shiny at can you think of how a particular failure or parent failures set you up for later. Success in other words. Do you have a favorite failure of any type. Something that seemed catastrophic at the time that in fact set you up for great things later. Yeah yeah i have a couple really good ones. And there's another thing. I try and teach the kids you know and something happens on. I think of all the things. I would trade. If you could take your experiences and asked to trade amend the last ones i would trade would be the failures. Those are the most valuable ones. When i moved to la. I was only doing comedy for years. But i had built up a pretty good reputation in new york and new york was really in those days. Still very much the miners to l. a. Which was the majors. And so i went out to la and People talk that. I was coming and that i was. You know one of the hot guys coming out of new york. And i was only doing it for years. You know twenty five years old. I mean i really still just starting and the comedy store was the club. La that you had to break into that. That was the club and the guys that work there and the women were killers. These people made the room just shake with laughter. It was very intimidating to go on there. And i went on there and i did very well. You know in those days you would you would call and they would give you spots if you were good and i would never get spots. We like one spot a week and you know once a week. It's like one push up a week. Don't even bother so. I asked to meet with. Mitzi shore the owner of the club and person who ran the whole thing there and she said to me she said i'm the kind of person that needs to get stepped on and That's what unit you need someone to step on you and i'm going to be that person. And she said if you called and said via had four spots available and you call them. I would give all four spots to this other guy. She mentioned this other guy. And i sat there in her office and i nodded. Not am i said well. I won't mention the name of the guy. She said she was going to give the four spots to joe. I said well if maybe he can't do all four. I'll be happy to take any the ones he can't do. And i walked out of there. And i never worked at the comedy store again and saying you're not working at the comedy store in la. It's like saying. I wanna be a baseball player. But not the majors. The majors in the united states. I'm going to pry trade someplace else lift. Lithuania yeah and so from there. I went from. I hope. it doesn't sound their modest from being absolutely at the top of the heap in new york city to playing at discos in the basement in la to like eight people but my resentment and hostility to her. I was a guy who i would say. I was a a three day a week. Guy and terms of my writing discipline in those days. And i went from three days a week. Two seven right there and i was like our pay. We're not this is this is i was angry. I was angry. I was frustrated. I was resentful. I used that was just fuel for me. She wasn't stopping me. Nobody was going to stop me but when someone is that hostile to you that can be a very good thing. If you're tough enough to eat shit. And say i'm and she's not stopping me. A great story. I it makes me think alexa hanan. Co-founded read it and at one point early on there were super excited about. Of course their company their baby. They'd put all of their waking hours into it. And they met with some yahoo executive who is basically just fishing for inside information and at some point in the meeting. This exact said. Oh there's your traffic.

There was no improvisation there, The laugh factory. It was the only game in town and I'm telling you comedy in the seventies was a rock and roll of the seventies.

David Letterman, Robin Williams, Jay Leno Gallagher Michael Keaton, The girl Waiting tables was Debra Winger. Yeah, there was great, and there's great stories about all of these people that have been apart. Of your life in the book, of course, as well, But you talk about the comedy store. Being the only place that people would you know, really be discovered. It was the one place to go that if you got there, you were going to make it somewhere. But then you talk about Carson and you know 60%. 70% of households were watching the Tonight show with Johnny Carson. And you're absolutely right. If Johnny loved you You had a career. You had a life. 26 million people watched that show. Dave. I can't tell you what the pressure was. You know, I've always worked on it. I told you already be positive mental attitude book I could, and I worked on being a com Comedian who enjoyed being on stage. You know, I always used to use the the same actors if you are and you will be so I would act as if I was a very confident stand up comedian and I became one. I think I began to love the stage and love stand up comedy and had fun on there had always had fun every night, but that first tonight show I can't even describe to you what that's like.

My whole career's Asia. Tommy have fun and the audience has fun. Have fun out there and the audience will have fun. It doesn't matter what's going on in your life. Just you gotta set it aside, right? And and I like you, even if it isn't working. I tell young comedians have fun. The fact that it's not working, and then the audience relaxes with that. So looks like you're having a good time. You note that Mitzi Shore gave you the big break of the comedy store. Carson gave you the huge break on the Tonight show. But it was Sammy Davis Jr that gave you a boost as the national touring acted with Sammy Yeah, it was interesting. You had a TV show called TV show called Sammy and company that was filmed out of Lake Tahoe at Harrison Lake Town, and I wanted to do the show because I had seen Sammy perform and there was no one like him on a stage. He resist incredibly electric and I wanted to do his show and I finally got on his show and I prepared a routine of me growing up in Harvey playing basketball in all black basketball team playing football. I'm not like football team and all the routines are being the only white guy in an all black situation, and Sammy fell off the couch laughing. And who is this? One of those nights? It was just hot and he told me, he said, I'm going to take you on the road with me. And he took me on the road for three years and taught me so much about our business, you know? He had more business acumen and this baby finger than most people have in their whole body. This guy was Mr Show Business Day. If he could, he could sing as good as anybody out there fraction after we're tell you, Sam, You never hit a clinker. He could sing as good as anybody out there. He could dance better than anybody out there. He could do comedy as good as any comedian ever met. He could do impressions, but in any oppression out there, he could play the piano. He could play the drums. He could play the trumpet. He he could do it all. Yeah. And here's a guy that you know, had confidence in you and said, You know, this is this is my guy. We're going to start touring and it really just, you know, put you even though Carson put you on the national stage. You know, Sammy and touring and doing those live performances really? Did that as well. And you know you share in the book about the time that you were in Vegas. And just like everybody like a fan, you went to see Sinatra perform at Harris and great story about how that connection all began. I came offstage when I When I was opening for Smokey and I didn't even change out of my state schools. I just bolted upstate and ran two doors over the Harris Hotel and was running into the showroom because I didn't want this. Thanks opening, he created more excitement, walking to the microphone that most people do with their whole act room when Frank Sinatra walked out on stage in place with just the roof would come off. So I want to watch that and I'm rushing in the showroom and the vice president of Harris Hotel, a man named Homes. Injection was standing out in front of the showroom with a big heavy shit guy would have a cigar. And Holmes, Sammy and E knew him from working hotel many times. He should tell me Come here, come here, and I reluctantly went over their head in one of this bank's opening, and he said, Tommy, this is Mickey Rudin. While I recognize the name that was Frank's lawyer, he said, Mickey, This is timed reason. And I think Tom would make a great opening act perfection after and the lawyer got a paint expression on his face like he heard it a 1,000,000 times, and he winked at the Vice president, and then you look at me should a kid if I gave you a week with Frank Sinatra, would you want more than 50,000? I should put it this way. The room If you gave me a week with Frank, would you want Warden? I love this kid, and he started laughing. A week later. They called me to work with Frank at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City, And I said, Yeah, try to get my picture taken with him and hang in every bar in Chicago. End of second night which working with him, he took me out to dinner. He and his wife, Barbara, and I can remember like yesterday in the middle of dinner, he said. This knife and fork down and he said to me, I like your material, and I like your style.

Well, it's a friendship in a in a relationship you never took for granted, either. No, e I made up my mind, You know, I mean, I I've done a lot of television before that worked with lot of Irish. And I knew that if Frank didn't want me anymore, I would work with someone else. You know? I mean, I would. I would just move on. But I made up my mind that because he was volatile, you know, there's no question about it. I said I won't know if we're seen him a couple times. Get a little angry with people. I said if that ever happens to me, I'm going to grab his hand and shake and shake Frank..

"As it happened at that time. And this is decades and decades ago, Joan rivers became this stand in the fill in guest host and her ratings were as big if not bigger than Johnny. She was that was at the top of her name. And she used to come in to the comedy store to work out her monologues. So I heard she was coming in. And I said, you know, I get nothing to lose lead Hersi me, I've been told let her see me, she pulls weight. She's big just want her to see me because I had a booking person coming in and telling me, Johnny would hate me. You know, these people that cast, and, and look and give you jobs are really just employee's and they're second guessing their boss. Yeah. Review notes on things. Second guessing there it may not be the way. So I said, if I could just get on stage in front of Joan maybe show like me. And if nothing else you know, another person who has some power in this business, so. Saami that was my thought and Mitzi shore, who ran the comedy. So it was nice enough to book a spot for me right before Joan was gonna come on and do her monologue and writer and work on her monologue. And that day I woke up with a fever and with the flu, and if you've ever had the flu or the fever there wasn't an inch of me that didn't hurt like I had aching all over my body and I had chills. All I was so sick and I go, what are the chances on this one day that I'm gonna play in front of Joan? And I just said, listen. If it kills me I got the flu. It's not a terrible thing. I'm gonna give them the karma try to do set. They don't want any how that tonight show so can't be any worse that. So I made my way to the comedy store and Joan rivers comes in, and I don't feel good. And right before Joan rivers is going to go on the injured his laser delmon. Howie Mandel get on. And I guess the adrenalin took over and I didn't feel sick and I crushed it. And that audience was Rory and I got off stage as going on. Now. Ladies and gentlemen, especial guest Joan rivers, and she passes me as she passes me. She goes very funny and lifted me into the cloud. Yeah. She goes on and does her set. And I said, I'm going to wait for her to come off because maybe you know. Will make some eye contact? And I don't know what's going to come up, but it's an opportunity thing. I just looked for opportunities. I don't look for jobs. I don't look for handouts. I don't look for favors every time somebody asks you to show up and do it. When you called and said, do this podcast. It's an opportunity. And I'm sure there's people listening to me right now, that have never bought a ticket to Howie Mandel show that may have never even turned on America's got talent that don't know what dealer no deal is.

I'm sure there was to Esther permits ski from free forms alone. Is it alone together alone together? But you know, that's show that should've gotten the longer run the politics ideal with most nowadays. Yes. I agree alone. Together was really funny, and it should have gotten a longer run. You know, every show that comes out with people, we know your support because you want people to be supportive of what you're doing. But then you watch. And if it's good you're really happy because you're like, oh, I can get behind this and feel good about it and alone together was one of those shows, and there are a handful of out there to corporate. I think is really funny. I love Jake wise, you know. Your likes? Good succeed in have good shows. I think the TV show rose battles. Great. I don't love the live show in the belly room. I think it's a toxic environment of open mic. That's part of why laughed like 'cause they. But it was so much better. When you were playing a character on it. Well, but I mean ridge it'll the house races, heckler, whatever you wanna call it. But that's one of the problems. I had where I was told it wasn't. There wasn't time to do it on the TV show. But. Then unseasoned three they're the they did it with my replacement like says, so the time to do it. Yeah. And seeing it's great the Saudi prince. He's also feel like I was gonna say the politics I deal with most is diversity casting. And I've come close on a lot of things and they've just had to give it somebody. Who's more diverse than me? And I it seems like that was the case with the hus- racist. Plus it's easier to swallow racist comments. If it's coming from someone who's a minority. She I don't think it is of color like to me, it's even more racist to have an Arab guy doing like anti-arab stick like in this environment. Given like after nine eleven let's be on Arab or Muslim looking comics or or people in general are not like exactly looked at favorably here. Like, I think it's having white person says it goes crazy white. I it's it's what you're doing with satire. You're not actually racist. You're making fun of someone who is racist. Saying those things you just happened to be. Saying really funny racist stuff. But but I also just don't think people understand the line between satire like people see satire, and they don't realize. That's what it is. They just get mad on surface level about any word that might be considered offensive. And they don't see it as you making fun of someone who would be saying that in earnest, I mean, ultimately when I was doing it. I was making fun of white people like for how stupid racist. Look and say, do you really think a show Brian Moses black host is going to have an actual racist? Sidekick. I mean, Jim Carey got it. And it made me I could acquit comedy after this. I think about three years and he came up to watch. And he was you know, obviously, very funny, and he came to me in the parking lot of the store after and he just whispered to me pay Archie where's Edith like he got like the whole time. I've been telling people it's Archie bunker like, and they're like who's that this isn't gonna work. But he got it like, you know. So Jim Carey that there's like three years into roast battle. He was not judging, but he was just there. Jeff brought them up. And so that made me feel like, okay, I'm doing right? Jim Carey saw me Mitzi Shore's memorial. And he's like you are Belushi.
