He wasn't talking into the Mike really good so like all. The comics boost gave him the light. So good so who somebody in Philly that you think is underrated. WHO's a comedian in Philly You're a big fan of that. Maybe not a lot of people have heard right now. Like coming up right now The Markets Lavar like I've been a markets. He took him to a few shows.

Did you guys like up anyway. So I met him well coming up. Do the houses like this.

Tahir Liner Soda Person That got me started on to Ray was actually curves mentor to raise the one that introduced cub the Keith Robinson So I just want being around to and then Guy Spain court in spank is is he. It features like you on on the road. So spank was here. Lining their helium. This is two thousand fourteen. So every every time it was a like a hill honor icon a new. I would hang go at their shows to try to gus bites. I just to get that five a minute so I hung out the whole weekend. He was at helium. The do guest spots on every show ended up putting me up and I did good on everyone and We just stayed in touch which one there may be spanked him. Like you sent me one of your tapes. I want to see if I could get you. On a showcase showcase was a week later. I'd get an email like hey anthony. I'm a produce comedy central. Be Putting together show for Kevin Hart and we want you to be on it like literally how to have jumped out at you see holiday I was like I can't believe you won't be like Oh. Let me for my people but it was like even and I still like. They said they wanted me on the show but like things still weren't certain like it was like okay. We're interested so as the things going on like some watching like heaven spanked their instagram. And like they're still on their tour so I hit Oh spank like you. Am Emma definitely on your show. He was like they said. They like your tape I'M GONNA hit them up to see like if things are food for sure so on a Wednesday get a call like the comedy Central People WanNa Conference call like Hey Anthony you're definitely on the show We're GonNa need these things from you. So it was like by their Friday. I had to email them on a copy. Happy in my set that I was going to do and then we were taping that Monday and I couldn't get any stage time that week because I'm telling people I'm doing a show. Kevin hurt but nobody at the club. Believe me off right after I quit bouncing right so I came name the fully desk Sunday. I did the open Mike at Fergus but this was on. Uh April taped on April and Sunday actually happened the B. Wrestlemanias like an like a bunch of the philly com share like huge wrestling with a total right so it was like no comics nokomis Willie only at the open Mike That was a light crow and I just went up and just like I started trying to do my side but nobody was really into it anyway so like I just bombed right so it was. I was bombing with the material. I was supposed to take the next day so I was like man. I'm GonNa just do whatever you're not listening anyway. And so yeah it was like all the only stays on my gut before attempt to show was me bomb and I mean when the actually taping that was amazing. Yeah that was great. Yeah you're gonNA came out better and he's been he's been supportive and yeah yeah. He looked he looked a lot. It's like good. What's on the horizon? What is the goal? What is the goal for for anything more? What is the The dream obviously living. But what is the finish line if you would say so. Both so my goal for this year. I'm about to start turning these colleges and like I'm really going to tighten up my hour. Then I wanNA shoot my our sometime in the next year. Okay and then. I just WanNa from term with these colleges I wanNA build up. I'm building on my FA- my family's with these With the college students. I'm because they're the ones that the main ones the only social media so I want to push you over. The short end on their first impression of what comedy is over the colleges. Then move onto the comedy clubs then move onto theaters and then work my way up to where I'm doing arenas so you're talking about social media. I know I manage and help musical acts so it's so important if I reach out to an agent or a lawyer. The first thing they'll say is how many instagram followers. I have to have any user. Youtube Shit has so. It's the same in the communist effort. Talk about the numbers. That's how it is like the first few meetings I have with. MTV that same situation where it was like Ah To this one. I was still living having a fully. I took a trip up there to have a meeting with them and that was the first thing they asked me like. You're funny but you really don't have a strong Internet presence. That's right so it makes you respect the old school in our music and our guys and the agents and TV people back in the day because they had to trust their instincts and this is an easy job now like if you have one hundred thousand followers than people know is not easy but does the thing to know what the the job on the other side is the age the corporate world who to invest in. They need instincts anywhere. So but that's the thing too they pick these people with the the followers but it doesn't translate views because there's like they throw these people in these movies. TV shows thinking like okay. They got a bunch of all their fathers are gonNA watch like no their followers. He would've just ordering phones all day. They don't want the kids that don't watch watch. TV that don't really spend mind tickets right. Yeah so whereas like a true stand up comedian a true stand up comedian there has one million followers. They're doing arenas versus Internet comic. That broke into stand up. They're just doing comedy club venues. Because does this only a small manor them actually spend money. y'All see Youtube. People who have twenty million dollars. I'll play like the the T.. La here right right. Jose two thousand. But they're not selling dividend different energy. You're not building that like real real famous. The cult of you know I don't like anybody out there is like oh I'll watch him for seven seconds but not for our.

"Inside yeah I mean it's part of the other part is this and I say this when I talked journalism classes you know journalism it's pure sense as a search for the truth reality is a reporter gathers a lot of facts and at a certain point you've got an editor saying when are you going to write that story so you're right the story based on the fact you have today understanding that tomorrow there may be three different pieces of information that skewered changed that story you know you you're not you don't know the absolute truth never do you search for but yeah so that's there is there a difference you feel when you're reporting the story as opposed to just writing for yourself as their defense energy there's a big difference between reporting for the newspaper I'm writing a book when I book it's subjective not object so when I'm writing a book and Ronnie privileged the principal character the book is going to come from his point of view and that's what I'm told the story from now you don't like Ronnie you're not GonNa like the book and I don't know all the answers but this is what he said this is what he testified under oath this is what the government used to make there cases here's who he is and go take it or leave it yeah Halloween the thirty year anniversary of the infamous shooting Dante and Luigi that was officially unsolved corrode I'm guessing you probably have you your own sort of I mean there's been there's been all kinds of documents there's informant debriefings there's enforcement people would you shooting Nikki scarf juniors is having clemson spaghetti with two other guys and a guy carrying a trick or treat one of them Jerry blevins was Jerry was at different you okay so the guy's carrying the trick or treat bag wearing a mask walks in walks up to the table pulls out a I think a Mac nine gun and opens fire on scarf junior hits them six times leaves the restaurant drops the gun and disappears and eh scarf or junior survives the hit amazing ru all yeah in retrospect and I remember talking to some cops right after this happened a few days before that a law enforcement guy the shot he was wearing a vest bulletproof vest and a bullet went under his arm and killed him and they said and here's scarf or sitting at a table take six bullets any walks away gust walked out at a hospital so everything's perspective but anyway the consensus has always been a jewelry moline was shooter that might informants told the feds that and and and law enforcement believes that nobody's ever been charged with that shooting Joe's never been charged there's a there's a tape in which scarf all juniors talking to his father scarf senior in prison in which they basically say it was me that did it in in code but it was really anyway and and scarf or senior says to his son you should take that guy dinner meaning do to him what he Ryan Right Michelle but then but then I talked to joey about this several years later it was always amazing Joey said it could've been me because I was on probation at that time I wasn't allowed out after seven they do I mean but he's a Mesa classic what was what was he like used bobby more for my generation he's the most Popular Boston Philly Joe Fisher Philadelphia mob Joe I would sit down either have a drink with him I have lunch with them and they come away realizing he didn't say anything you didn't tell me thanks very glib he's very always how's your family doing how's your he had two daughters I have two doors how's your daughter's doing the very personable guy talked about sports very well red talked about all government screw ups knew about buddy would never really get into anything and I'm in the classic Joey Line and Dave Schratt wiser from Fox twenty nine got this on film was Brad now the photographer they knew joey very well they were reporting the same time I was ah during their Simpson and after the dot Dan Luigi shooting from prison Nikki scarf oh senior supposedly put a five hundred thousand dollar contract out on always life wanted somebody to kill Joey and Schratt and Brad now driving around South Philly they spot joey get.

Started writing about him at that point ex cop now a bodyguard to the mob boss Blah Blah Blah flatten and I get this phone call from him and he says you seem to have an undue interest in my life I like to talk to you now you know you you you can't say no managed a whole macho world but you can't be writing about this so I said I'm Mitch alongside soon daytime in a public place show used to hang out at the Silver Corn Diner Down Hamilton you should come down and see me we'll have lunch so I told my editor here's where I'm going here so I'm GonNa go see if anything you know the but I go down to see him and he's a very erudite guy and he starts tell me stuff and I'm not sure why but you know he's right on a lot of stuff about checking out and and get to know each other and you know he becomes a source for me and then he keeps saying to me someday you write a book about Me Surani you've told me about gambling extortion brothels that you're running drug dealing of I write about you're going to go to jail and he says don't worry work it out we'll work it out well he already knew he was cooperating was wearing a wire and he was gonna flip so I you know I I should've I think eventually I realized but not in the beginning but yeah that's the that's the only time I other guys we contacted me after he flipped around Ronnie Ronnie passed away two years ago a year ago August in reading and contact with great you know Ronnie didn't go into Witness Protection Ronnie stayed in the area Very very fascinating IRA with I wrote a book the last gangster was about running remember again now these guys around here don't like them because he testified again and that was interesting he testified against him and they call him the fact rat and Ronnie would say where they and where am I right and and I remember after the big trial in Philly I had lunch with the lives of two of the guys who were convicted and winning always have the better perspective on what had been my experience and I'm sitting around and we're talking about Ronnie and about their husbands and and the wife looks at me and says where is he and where's my husband he's free on the street and my husband's in jail and two story I mean that's you know that's the bottom line for them yeah now do you think that there's any of the gangsters from the Angelo Bruno era would recognize the mob at all today is there anything that still similar from I think I think she went over to recognize it 'cause it's still based in South Philadelphia and causes the sun's nephews and cousins Asia or the guys that are involved now I would they would be surprised that is it's not the big moneymaker was back then there aren't as many opportunities I mean look at gambling you got the when you got casino so that they lost a lot of that sports butting is now legal mind everything is is encroached on their their economic engine so what else are you going to go into drugs drugs is a very dangerous thing because one the penalties are higher and to the much larger risks because you're dealing with people who you can't depend on Angelo Bruno didn't want to deal drugs not quasi was morally opposed to drugs but one because you already had gazillion dollars and didn't need it who he didn't trust that segment of the underworld guys are gonNA flip because they're strung out guys are gonNA flip their jammed up or maybe my guys are going to get involved and they're gone they get strung out and then I can't depend on them so it wasn't a moral it was an economic was that a real a dealer dial was like a real thing with look coconut like you know what I mean obviously I'm only going off there was I mean there was in New York I mean when Paul Castellano and Vincent Geraci were running the Gambino and Genovese seacraft families that had an edict you deal drugs and you get caught we're gonNA kill you right but I still did it because there was so much money to be me do you ever when you talked about going to the meeting out in Hamilton when you're going to these meetings are you ever a little bit nervous I kind of got in the back of your head like all right these guys are kind.

legendary figure in our city for sure thank you very much thank you George definitely excited have you on the show you recommended as as we typically do we ask the guests on the show to recommend where they want to eat drink and you recommend despite what is it about this spot that you thought was is so great well I mean Angela Lutts who's the owner and and and runs the places good friend of Mine Angelo has a background he was involved in an organized crime case did his time and is one of the I think one of the great success stories this is a guy who truly has turned things around and Ah runs a really good restaurant he's in the middle of college would is like the South Jersey restaurant Mecca and he's holding his own it's a great place yeah well I WANNA go back with with you and and your story in terms of coming over here you are you're third generation is that my grandparents emigrated from Sicily right now okay so my father was born here and not I'm sexy generation Italian okay and so what are you uh-huh about about their story I mean there was a major that was sort of a major immigration from Sicily at the Early Twentieth Century Right Yeah I mean most of the people that came were four and most of the people that came didn't speak English anyway there's a as a certain irony in all of this one year old let's talk about immigration and here's the irony that I find Johnny I mean I have people in my own family and people in my generation who are very conservative about this and what I say is one hundred years ago would have been our Grandpa our two were being denied because they don't have an education then we'll speak the language they don't bring any skill so what's the point of letting them into the country and that kind of FIS face of work is about this I mean I'm here today my grandfather and grandmother came here and struggle to make it you know my my father was the youngest of seven and the only person to graduate from her school he had three children my brother and my sister all three have college degrees his first two grandchildren might my daughters both have masters degrees the American experience it doesn't happen in day in and and to deny immigrants because they don't have the skills of language lose sight of what America's about so yeah I mean that's a only at ut you know as beautiful I totally definitely appreciate that 'cause it's definitely does seem like we're reliving some stuff we thought we had moved it Jackie yeah we lose sight of who we are where we came from and then the next other is somebody that we should we want to shun it that's not the way this country's supposed to operate you start you you went to Dartmouth and earlier and we're starving for the people that are mothers in Hanover New Hampshire and it snows in October and you don't see the ground the toll make you're from this area right I was born in South Philly grew up in South Jersey yeah and I had a chance to go away to school you know and as I met tournament I I had a chance to go to Lehigh Dartmouth on Canada's same right and since Dartmouth was the furthest away I wanted I wanted to experience being away from home so that's why pick Dortmund and it was a good experience I really I like to play some a much happier now that it's coed when I was there it's a good school and really good at you know what I got out of Dartmouth when I remember going there and one of the professor said you come here and what you do is you learn how to learn it's not what you major in it's done you learn how to learn you take that with you and you know that's what reporting is about is is being a quick study you a lot of different stuff thrown at you and you've got to figure that'd be able to explain it and when I graduated I had I had again it's fortunate this is in the middle of the Vietnam War I had written shoulder playing football and rugby so I failed my physical so I can get a deferment to look for a job and I applied at a small news favor near where I grew up there was an opening for sports writer and since I have played sports the the editor knew me and I got shot and he gave me a try out and I started out as which writer and I spent a year reading high school sports and then kind of that was my journalism school that first newspaper that I went to work for was the Woodbury Times back then now closed unconscious spent four and a half five years there and that was my journalism school I started out as a sportswriter then became a news writer by the time I left I was the city editor so I learned about journalism you move to move to the inquirer and it was pretty quickly that you got put on the Atlantic City within two years I was in I I was in Gloucester County when I was in Trenton but then I got sent to Atlantic City to help with the coverage of the Casino Gambling Referendum in one thousand nine hundred seventy six and I and I was down there for that and then I was down there for the opening of the first I think six casinos spent I probably spent six or seven years in Atlantic City for the inquirer so you were there at the beginning of Atlantic's very the very beginning was air during the referendum and I was there covered resorts international's opening and covered bally's opening Caesar's the first five or six casinos hours every Saturday to make a move into realizing you know obviously the the underworld was a part of that whole gambling situation during the the run up to the referendum there was a lot of debate about was legalized game they always called legalized gaming gambling was legal allies. GimMe going to bring the mob toll annex city well the answer was the mob already wasn't Atlantic City what was it that became part of my coverage and then it just expanded out of there and I'm writing about casinos I'm writing about the industry I'm writing about the ethics I'm writing about the money in an writing about it or is the mob trying to get its hooks into Atlantic City the way it did in Vegas Russian and so I did a lot of that and then Angelo Bruno got killed in one thousand nine hundred and then things changed rapidly F- How'd you get those guys to talk to you in the beginning medium but the more I stayed with the more I become part of the furniture I mean if there's a trial there is a hearing on there and then it's just like covering any other beat right the more you do it the more people get to know you and some of them for whatever reason decide they want to talk to your they want to try to spin right so they could use so you can help for mob guys that's kind of unusual book with I was fortunate that the next generation wise guy seemed to like the attention in one I was I remember covering a couple here he's when I was Atlantic city that he was called to subpoena that testify embry was very polite but we're never say anything Komo no commoner it's nice to see you thank you very much whatever Nikki scarf oh I don't think ever liked me but he would never talk to me what was the next generation guys and it's kind of that John is guys had this American version of the celebrity gangster you know so you get involved in this at a time that's coming right after Godfather and godfather to mhm you think that also changed the way that people viewed the mob as opposed to how I I know we talked about a little bit about how the guys after Godley and and then in the Skinny Joey we're a little bit more into being on camera.

the restaurant along with husband John what three years ago three and a half years ago yeah two thousand sixteen okay that was a pretty big jump for you you had started in the corporate world and Kinda came into the restaurant Biz with not much restaurant experiences yeah that's exactly right my entire Korea wasn't a carpet wool Jitsu in and I worked for IBM for quite a while a climb up the corporate ladder went all the way up to the corporate data discovered know what I don't quite fit in here decided the restaurant is probably fit in the best and I totally enjoyed it so decided to open a restaurant seems crazy everyone told told me that I lost my mind is going through a crisis or something like that but did you have any restaurant experience I know you're crazy paid off though well I so the thing though as I did know how to cook I didn't know how to cook the cuisine that I grew up with very well sure but lots of people know how to cook looking in running a restaurant or two very different things Yeah I knew exactly what I was getting into I knew to kind of work that's required to run a restaurant I have family members in Malaysia who have run a restaurant street food cards back home and I was a kid ours always helping some of my family members who ran restaurants streets apart and and I under then what kind of work is like so you know the only difference that I had to learn here not so much of the weather running restaurant is this you know the the health poets here and what the Hell Co two have department koets Iraq crecy yeah that pot two and licensing and stuff like that and was good at out I pretty much know how to make the food run the food and how to operate The restaurant which the good thing though about the restaurant that I did come far it is a prettier restaurants if you come in you notice that the service is as if you travel halfway around the world because that's the only service I knew the food is just like you have traveled to Malaysia because that's the only knew how to cook so I wasn't trying to change anything I wasn't trying to adapt to what I think Americans one I just did what I knew and I think that's why I was able to succeed in what I did because there's a restaurant where I came from not what I think Dat America's one I think that's what made it successful is that a tough is that a tough decision though because obviously you're you have to cater to a customer most of your customers are going to be Americans and we're in Philadelphia where people have very strong opinions about things were you at all scared that Oh they might want an American version of Malaysian Food Oh yeah John talked so much about what we might things and and the challenges we might have we had all those challenges we had refers to come par in Malaysia south you know when someone artist Tame the menus will will does in the menus will will be caper six and and we didn't realize that Malaysia most people would be expected to order sticks by the dozen to eat because that's present at the center of the meal when you go to a place that's what you really want eight is a lot of Satay I brought out yesterday twenty thirty six person but when we first opened the doors media realized that that culture doesn't translate here and and other people coming in to order one stick to share with between two people you know a couple and and what will be binding half a stick and sharing a half of the etiquette somebody listening and they don't know what is for to explain it to us Yep sure yeah Satay as marinated Meat I need smaller pieces of me that's really well marinated and spice up sometimes Spicer Chagrin as spices salt and he's always brought on a coconut sharp in Malaysia and and the reason we grew it on coconut shot Choco maybe because it's a natural few that we have in Malaysia but he's also a smokeless chocolate the aroma of Saturday is the whole experience of waiting for your meal as well the Aromas almost like spice incense that enveloping the the restroom on and and also the skewers skuas do not do not have a smokiness to it because we don't use American Woods doesn't have that smoking us in Schaub chocolate enhances the smoke and aroma of spices so that's what Satay is is always easier with peanut sauce and alpina sauces made from scratch edge it's not peanut butter is not a pays is actually kind of like a gravy that you would put on top of Saturday and how we eat satay hard time finding coconut charcoal here the only ones in the US cooking on cooking chocolate imported every year you bring it in from NFS Few batches were from Malaysia. Sometimes we get stuff from India but yeah we it's hard to sausage is so now in the restaurant of F I R right and then how many skewers do I get too many sticks to I get now we found on by five six ten stakes just to just to get the message across you know minimum finds thanks for president with the reasonable way of enjoying satay and not half a state for me you're out of business real fast sharing one st yeah but it was a quick you know we learned a lot of lessons because it was for me it was about how how translate my culture here and it's something that I was not aware of let me first opened our doors because there are a lot of cultural differences is that I took for granted and I just assumed that people would eat the same way I would if I serve this kind of food and I realized that no I mean it's not many people understand how to eat this kind of food the way I would just assume for example Rendong and rice and and we still rise of Lao Lao meat dishes like curries down and vegetable dishes and in Malaysia where we OUGHTA rice plate it is our order ice skate we don't share our rights pates right so everyone orders arise plate for themselves and the Lao which is the protein and vegetables is always charitable dishes we always have to admit the table so we just take a spoonful of that an eat we've made a rice but what I notice you had America without any one explaining to them the rice would be mid off the table and everyone has their own pay rent down off the culture so site then you get a little ruler sound robbing people on the doing things wrong yeah but this is this is the things that I never knew before and it's a cultural difference in and for us to gradually over the last three years trying to explain to customers this we creating a manual for them suggesting flipping suggesting a manual which is true it'd way would approached his food eventually that those you know those kind of where it spread and and customers will bring new friends and they were about the way of eating at a restaurant and over time it has changed but it was challenging so having to sort of is you're sorta tell a story as much as it is to serve the Food I mean you're obviously he obviously had to let people know that this is you just you know people when they think of that region I think probably think more.

Details of the secret location. We're at we had a term I phones in our phones in there. Right. So, you know, part of your life is kind of it's almost like you're in the witness protection program. Yep. Yep. We try we try to remain a pretty pretty low-key. How's that feel because it's gotta be a you have a certain amount of prestige and power, but you're not allowed to to to to you have to have certain level autonomy. Like, what's that like for you? Well, you know, I've been doing this long time and this when I got started being an anonymous critic was standard operating procedure. And you know, you try to go in and out of restaurants to be as unnoticed as possible, you really trying to capture the experience that, you know, a regular reader would have. So you realize very quickly that it's in everybody's interest to try and figure out who you are. So, you know, at at some point, you you do your best you always do your best. And then at some point you gotta live your life and release a small town. Yes. And I live in town, and I'm a family, and then you start having interactions with people at school, and you know. At some you have to create a dividing line for yourself. That's acceptable. You say listen, I'm gonna live life in and be a Philadelphian when by family, and then I'm going to do my job as best as I can. And so, you know, I'm discreet, I take as many precautions as possible, but you know, unless you're going to get plastic surgery regularly. There's only so many things about yourself. You can change on a on a on a weekly monthly basis. Let alone going out, you know, three hundred times a year. So you go out three hundred times a year for work. Yeah. Do you still enjoy going out when you're not working? I love it. It's it's it's become you know, this is a lifestyle job. You know, you really it's journalism. I, you know, and but I work a lot. And, you know, this is my reporting going out to eat and being in restaurants and over a course of time, you know, you it is, you know, very few jobs are built around daily rituals like eating, and if you do it long enough and intensely Nuffie make an part of your. Life. It's it's it's becomes natural and second nature. So I'm just not one of these food predicts who's tired or blase or jaded of you still still excited about doing the worst. Oh excited because I live in such a dynamic and exciting place where there's so much passion. This is coming to sport. Right, right. This is part of blowing up the scene herlie houses going to say not lost since you got here. I mean, I've been here I've been here twenty one years and for the day, I got here. It has just been getting better and more interesting and dynamically changing and growing in in a way that very few. I think beats at the newspaper have consistently seen sort of a a rise in energy and quality and material that I've been I've been sorta blessed with being able to cover. Well, what do you think in able to city to have this boom, what was it that caused Philadelphia to go when you got here ninety eight there was only a handful of restaurants handful of pubs. And now, it's one of the world class. Eating and drinking cities in the country. You know, my theory has always been sort of an economic situation if you look at where Philadelphia is on the east coast between, you know, Washington DC and New York, and for the longest time that was like the chip on our shoulder that was we were overlooked, and that turned out to be really good thing. Because Philadelphia remains in my play in my opinion, the best place to live a city urban exciting urban life on hands down can afford to live here partake. In all the cultural things in Philadelphia has offered the way that you cannot New York City, you cannot in Washington DC in the same way. There's not the same sort of local character and spirit and here into it. There's there's no there's no quiz. Oh, ho Secondly, six months.

Gallagher gallagher. All right. Who was somebody that you've worked with that? Most people like, but they don't know that they're actually kind of an asshole Jay Leno seems like it. I've I've heard him. But he was very mean to to other comics, you know, like all these convicts were real nice to see them. This is over the old days over at the Middle East restaurant when it was upstairs their comedy works. And he was playing there and a lot of comedians wanted to meet him, and he was very mean. And condescending to a lot of really nice guys. Okay. And I saw him backstage a couple of times being mean to like indiscriminate people or something like that. I guess that's you know, how you get to the top. And all those cars. Yes. This every week. Give me something beautiful about Philadelphia. The heartbeat. Okay. Because it's always something zone in Philadelphia. Okay. It's got a good heartbeat. And it's an always something the same acts that go to New York they'll pass through here this without as much, you know. Yeah. It's it's the beat of the city. It's a little less than New York. But I kind of want that I always kind of wanted me to you know, and it's a little more than Baltimore. So. So. Slowdown. Philly any day over New York any debt, and the mutter museum is something that is very beautiful on everybody should go see that. And you know, they have. They have the original Siamese twins skeletons there. Okay. And so this is my last one because I have to catch the bus like a true for the Delfin. Oh, my would have been on time. Are you doing this to the day you dyers there's there exit plan? You know, I thought about you know, getting out of it. But once it gets in your blood, it's in your blood, and obviously I'll be doing it. You know, when AVI making depends jokes and. Man that thanks, even if I have Alzheimer's, you know, I still have an audience because you know, unforgettable. I love it. Yeah. No. I think that. Yeah. It's it's fun to go onto the end because I play all old folks homes and stuff, and I'm sort of an old soul. You know, even when I was a kid, I was an old soul. So I I sort of I'm not fearing the future. But you know, I'm sorta got embracing. Last one. I have it would be a pet. Now's well tweeted about how your legend Dennis Miller recently talked about how your legend. What is it about the legendary wig that has kept you? So that you're you're in some ways it could mean every young comedian Philly has legendary with story. Everyone wants you to see their act. Why is it that you are? I mean, you have lived up to that legendary Monica every comedian Philly loves you. Why do you think that is? I think I come from a big family. So I kind of introduced people to other people who will do them good or or are doing the same thing that they're doing that was one of my main functions at the laugh house was to Cima make these comics assimilate into the world of comedy, you know, people see it in a certain way, and you know, and it looks unattainable. But I I showed them, you know, that it's attainable. I mean, if I can do it anybody can do. And I I saw always pass that along even back in my in my beginning days because a lot of times, the, you know, I had more of a worldview, and a, you know, a family view, and I would I would treat it like that. And I think you know, I think I was able to you know, I I was successful at doing that. I know that because a lot of people went on to bigger and better things, and I knew them from the beginning when they first came in all dough, then go, and I'm to tell jokes know, and this legacy is all about how people remember what you did for me. And I'm sure he will seem like a great guy. I'm trying to now. Just get a natural reaction to this with. All right is a national publication row bible dot com. And they did the most overrated comedians of all time, and they say number nine is carrot top. Almost all the comedians on this list. Have at the minimum some sort of Honey to them carrot top not so much this jackass flunks on stage with premade props that are about as funny as the holocaust PS. You wanna see a real prop comedian Phillies zone? Legendary wit has been getting it done with normal props in real jokes. For decades. Check him out feel when you hear that. Well, you know, I always kind of feel good about what I do. I I'm not one account. My my accolades, I wanna I wanna go onto the future. Sometimes. And that's why I'm in a rock and roll band now. Called the roddenbury's, and we do Star Trek centrism, Wisconsin with Scott Johnson. Yes. And two of the tie in boys and just an array of people who play for Martha Graham cracker. And you know, who are very good musicians. And they let me sing. Okay. And I think that's kind of you know, kind of like. It's just icing on the cake for me because you know, I I never got to sing. When I was you know, being a comedian all comedians wanna saying all singers wannabe comedians. Can I? They're both equally bad at both. I mean, if you're a double threat, then that's that's something. Great. But I thanks good. We've loved having on the show too.

So let's let's get back to that name. How did you? How did you get the name wit? It was given to me when I was hitchhiking out in California when you could hitchhike before it, you know, be more. They would mutilate. Please. You know, and I was like twenty years old, and you know, hitchhike in probably and I was stuck in needles, California. And they said, oh, okay.

"In this episode of the Philly blunt. We sat down with Dr Timori Lee at Frankie Bradley's Timori may be the hardest working woman in Philly. She's a sex, educator and therapist writer community organizer fitness instructor, and burlesque dancer and promoter. She talks about all that being poly-amorous and more. Don't forget the follow us on social media, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, all as the Philly blunt and rate and review our podcast, so others find it when I say that I'm poly-amorous with that means is that not only am I capable of being attracted to multiple people. I am capable of an interested in carrying on romantic relationships with multiple people simultaneously, and this is done through ethical non monogamy where everybody knows what's happening. Everybody's been informed in everybody agrees that this is what we're doing. We all work together to figure out a situation that is mutually satisfactory. Hello, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to Philly blunt. My name's Shannon. Good times. Greg and bomber but refills caused could not make it tonight. We do have some questions he has provided. So we'll get to those later. We are very excited to have our guest this week. We have Dr Tim Marie Lee sexologist burlesque, dancer writer, fitness instructor dance instructor to Maria. I wanted to start with what is something. You can't do. I don't play any musical instruments with any competent. I'm just makes us feel better about ourselves since you have your resume is just so absurd. We are hanging out at Franky Bradley's. He'll love the spot. Nice little quarter like Cova. They call it. Yeah. So you are a regular performer here. Visit say spot that eating. We always ask the gas Marty you want to go to you picked this one why this place, so I have many monthly shows here. I have a the Darrell in Tim refund. Our is here, which is a sex Ed comedy game show. I have agitated which is a burlesque and drag show that is all politics. I have a show called Honey as I'm here. And it's progress realis- variety show. I do a lot of other people's shows here, and then also had to it this space used to be sisters produced my first shows here. So when I very first gone into her last I with Bulla hubris and whiskey just started producing after. I'd only been in like one show. Yeah. I can do this. And I started producing in this physical space which then closed down. I'm like, I guess that's the end of my entertainment graph. And then when Frankie Bradley's opened they were like, hey, would you like to keep the lesbians coming back? I was like that's literally my entire life. You and I are somewhat similar. Somewhat similar careers in that we both are always trying to entertain people at nighttime and bars and bars are always I mean, the exciting thing is that, you know, we're in this big city and bars are always looking for somebody who has an idea to bring people in how how hard do you find it to keep coming up with things that will keep bringing people back? I don't have a problem with that at all. I think it's is just like Phileas so weird. And they love weird stuff. And like weird how I mean gritty come on. Whereas ready go the city could have pulled off critic greedy is is exactly affiliate doesn't really by the way. Excuse me here about our second straight guests who is talked about gritty grittiest taken over like the zeitgeist Philadelphia. And everybody's rejecting these things onto gritty. It's definitely projecting. I mean, I'm talking about like a muppet character that lake is just basically chaos, and I love their like social media presence. And that's I mean, Philly Philly's at it's hard working class town. And that is why I love doing burlesque here because burlesque is inherently a working class, art form. And silly also likes stuff. That's silly. Not that other cities don't, but we're we're about weird. Oh, we pride ourselves on we. Yeah. We absolutely part of it was that it was like a national. He will mocked it nationally. I I really was like this is stupid. And then everyone hated it and made fun of it. And then they're like, no, no, no fuck with Grady. He's arguing that's partially. Yeah. I'm very proud that I was on the gritty bandwagon day one. And I was not because I remember it's only like our one by like three everyone was on. I was on our once I saw the first thing. I was like this thing is this thing has got some legs. This thing is beautiful. So let's go back a little bit. You grew up in western Nebraska has offense. You do not strike me as a western Nebraskan? How? I guess how did you should? It's a long story. But how'd you go from western Nebraska to Philadelphia? I mean when I grew up there, I had no intention of staying there. It was a matter of like which big city on the coast of my going to end up at how am I gonna get there? And what I ended up doing is going to grad school a Widener. And so I moved to east coast you found Widener from the bresca. Yeah. Specific program. Yeah. So my PHD is in human sexuality and Widener has the only nationally accredited doctor program and human sexuality. So. And this was when the internet was mostly just a good idea. So like, not every institution had a website. So I didn't find him right away. But I did in two thousand and five I moved I moved to Philly area and found this program 'em fell in love with the city made a lot of connections with people really care about. And like I couldn't do this stuff another city, but really really really like Philly. Two questions. First of all. Another thing we have in common is we're both from very rural areas, and we both knew at a certain point our life. I'm going to get the fuck out of here. How soon did you know that where you grew up wasn't going to be the place that you live or that defines you or I mean, I can't remember a time. When I didn't think that I mean, I just. I was an only child who like watched a lot of films read a lot of books because my mom is an English professors that the house was full of books, and it was just like that's where the world was. I didn't see anything that appealed to me that was possible where I was and maybe somebody wants to live there and make those things happen. But there's very little about what I do that. I'd be able to do in my hometown. Even if I wanted to live there, and you know, like, I would be like the one person in all of western doing burlesque. One person and all of western Rask are being a sex educator. I don't know. I don't mean to be thing. Yeah. I mean, the diminutive if anybody is doing that out there, and I don't know about it. But it certainly didn't seem possible. When I lived there. Did you have a lot of friends growing up? Due stuffed animals count. We hung Allah. I heard you say before you already knew at a young age. Thank you were a little bit weird compared to your peers, you felt a little bit different than the people. You grew up around. I think a lot of that is realizing that I was queer pretty early on when I was pretty early on. Well, I mean, like definitely like five or six I was very what I realized was the not everybody else was that's what happened to me. Is that like when I played with dolls? Sometimes they would be in relationships that they would bump against each other. And it never occurred to me that gender would be a factor in which dolls were with each other. And it wasn't until I heard somebody say something homophobic that I even knew that heterosexuality and homosexuality where the prevailing understanding of most people because I I've just like by all the way through and I just assumed everybody else wants, and so when I heard that comment I was like what does that mean, they explained and it was like, oh my God. There are teams, and I must have been sick the day of school where everybody got assigned a team. I mean, we're not more on. And then I realized later as a teenager what that meant that. I was by and that that was an option, and then I was like, oh, yeah. Okay. But knowing that from very early age of there was something about me that was like inherently lake so unacceptable. There wasn't even a word for it. But you know, I decided to have like a rich inter life. Right. So how old were you? When you heard that conversation. Do you? Remember, I remember distinctly it was in their first or second grade. And specifically the context is that we were saying pledge allegiance to the flag. Michael Jackson is a fag. And I went what's a fag. And I'm sorry to anybody that offensively to said that too. But like that's when it was explained to me, and I was like oh. You
