"Offer comedy courses and improv courses and as well workshops on communicating better and communicating with humor, which is really my niche. So yeah, so you will one day hopefully see that name be communication as a company that is thriving. Okay. I'd love to hear that. If you could switch lives with someone, who would it be and why? Yes, who would I switch lives with? That's a hard question because I feel like I really wouldn't want to be in anyone's shoes because you just don't know the cross are the burden that others are carrying. But let's see if I could just because I love her. She's dead and gone. But it would probably be Phyllis Diller because she was so outrageous, you know? I would imagine spending a day and I love how loud she was and she had this, you know, this over the top personality and how she talked about her husband firing and, you know, her sexuality and the way she dressed. She was just such a bright light. And that's what I always sort of want to project and that's what I try to break out of my own sort of constraints that I feel based on culture or trying to sit

"Yeah. Very fun today. Fun stuff. Ernie Hudson, man. Yeah, I mean, you just got up and showed him a YouTube video of him on The Incredible Hulk in season two, so that had to be 78. How about Ricardo Monte bones when welcoming a fantasia? Do you think he had like the white suit on when he did it? He's not just sitting there in his leather. I imagine he slept in that thing. He went right. Don't you think he would have to get into costume and then to help get into character he would just knock on the door of any of the guest stars or anybody who is guessing or a guest actor, right? Yes, yes. He comes up to me. He has to do it. Has to. Who is on that episode? Like, who are the other guest stars on the fantasy? And by the way, I'll just say this. I'll just say this. I'll just say this. I'm seeing the commercials for the new love boat, right? They're calling it the real love boat. Oh, is that a real thing? Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm seeing like Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn, right? Are doing their hosting a real reality show of people trying to find love on the on a cruise. It's called the real love boat and I'm seeing that and I'm like with all due respect, it is not the real love about if B Arthur is not trying to hook up with Jack Klugman, it's not the real vote. You know what I mean? Honestly. Seriously. If Vic Tay back is not trying to find love with Phyllis Diller, that is not the real logo. I don't care. You can not call it the real love boat unless that's a possibility. We were so excited to see who the guest stars. Adrian barbo. A must talk up with Telly Savalas, otherwise it's not the real love boat. I don't care the ending. It was always. There was got back together. My brother and I, my brother and I would sit there, believe it or not. We thought we would sit there and we would just make like we would make a check sign to each other as they got back together. And I'm like, oh, that's another love. That's another match. We would literally do. That's a childhood memory of mine. And the basement of Evan Joel Staten Island man's exciting. By mance, I mean a very small house. Oh, come on. It's not the real love, but I'm sorry. We're expecting. I think I've got one more left in me. Unless Tom Bosley, yes. Hold on, it's going to try and hook up with Angie Dickinson. It's not the real level. I mean, I know he's out kicking his coverage. Yeah. But that's what the original love boat was all about. In your coverage. Are you kidding me? Yes. Ernest Porsche 9 would have no shot anywhere unless it was on the love vote. He's dead. Come on. Phil Silvers, it's gonna find love. No. But you know who would? Morgan Fairchild. And then how's he doing this? What's up with that? It's not the real love boat right now with all due respect to. That show was lovely. Can you believe that? Dude, of course it was. Come aboard. We're expecting you. Fantasy. Get out of here, Matt. Get out of here with that real love vote stuff. Saturday night. That's what I do sitting here watching commercials. I'm like, that's not the real love boat. Look, Vincent Price was on the road. That's right. Right. You know? You guys are crazy. I love. Ever tell you my Morgan Fairchild petty cure story. That's amazing. That's a proper noun and noun that I didn't see filled in with Morgan Fairchild and pedicure. I didn't think about it until just this moment. We're all ears, Rex Ryan.

Legendary Performer Pat Boone Shares a Story About Buddy Hackett

"Talking to papuan. Do you understand what I'm telling you? Pat Boone. Pat, is it really you? It's definitely me. You're not just teasing me. It's really you. I confess, no makeup whatsoever. A purposely kind of fuzzy light so that I'm wearing, I'm wearing enough makeup for the two of us. Don't worry about it. I said to them, I want to look like George Hamilton. What can you do? And this is as close as they were willing to go. They didn't want to give me what you need four shades of tan more. That's all. Have you played golf with George Hamilton? I played in the same tournament with the who's who of showbiz, but not in the same force of no. What about so you've played golf with Bing Crosby? I don't know that it gets when you say you've played off with Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. I think we're done. I don't think you can top that. Have you ever played? Have you ever played golf with Phyllis Diller? No, I don't think she plays, but you know, I topped it, as I say, Bing Crosby was my sponsor. He was my reason. Now, look, can I tell you a funny story about that? It involved buddy. I dare you. Go ahead. It involves Buddy Hackett. He and I were making a movie. Now you got to keep it clean. It is clean. All hands on deck with Dennis O'Keefe, Barbara Eden, and so on. And Buddy Hackett, who played an Indian in this film. It was a naval. It was in the navy. I mean, we were on the navy LST. And he was just lower course. And I was a lieutenant. And so anyway, you don't need to know the story. While we're making the film, he was taking up golf. He said, pat. He says, I want to get to be a Bel Air. Can I be a member of Bel Air? And I got to be honest, I was not, I was not expecting you to do a Buddy Hackett impression on this program. So I just checked that off my bucket list. So you're doing a film with Buddy Hackett, Barbara Eden, and during the film, Buddy Hackett is leaning on you to try to get into the Bel Air country club. Okay. Yes. Now, he was already a member of hillcrest, a Jewish club. But Bel Air, of course, is famous. That's where Howard Hughes landed his plane famously and on the golf course and things like that. And this pictures of being in bob and Fred Astaire and Gable when he had a hole in one. You know, it's where all the stars like to play. And I was a member now at 23, 24 years old. And we're in the car, and he says, I want to play a bit here. And I said, well, buddy. I don't have anything to do with except I can ask the manager. And he says, we'll do that. So I did. And the manager told me he said, you know, we don't have any Jewish members. I said, what is it? He says, it's not in our bylaws. Now, wait a minute. What year, this is like what 54, what year is this? 57. 57. Bel Air country club had no, I mean, I'm not surprised, but it's nonetheless, it's extraordinary. It was shocked to me. And they didn't say it's not in our bylaws. It's just we don't happen to have any. She said, but you can talk to the membership committee, the various members and see what they, if they'll vote, but

"The Pete and Seth Talbot, welcome to New York. Welcome to the program. Hey. It's fun to be back. It's fun to get to know people beyond the initial actually, in some cases, it's not fun at all. But in your case, it is a lot of fun because the more I get to know. The more I get to know you, the more I like you and when you were telling me of what you are doing now and what you have planned, I thought, you know what? I think my audience will find it interesting. So let's start there. What do you do right now? Well, for the last 8 years, actually starting at about 9 years ago. We were cofounders of relief factor. And God was good. And business. For one time, folks. Yes. Just this one time. God was good. God is good. He always has been. Okay, good. And we were able to be blessed with the success of relief factor, but this last June, we stepped down from the day to today management Seth, of course, was the CEO from day one. I was the director of marketing and together we got to the point where we had as many as 20,000 people a day coming to our website, for example. To check out. Okay, that's called success. Are you allowed to use that word on the program? No, seriously, people don't realize. I remember when we started with relief factor. And I just realized that it really grew and grew and grew and grew until now you've got ads everywhere with Friends of mine like pat Boone and Phyllis Diller actually, no, she's not in there. Pat. Papuan really is. But you've got Charlie Kirk and Sebastian gorka. A lot of people that I know and I'm not in the ads, folks. I'm not in the ads, but I want to tell you I use this stuff, but I actually was amazed to see that the company, I guess the term you'd use is it exploded. It became very successful because I'm not here to sell relief factor. I'm just here to be honest. It does work when I don't take it. If I go on vacation, I forget it.

"I do like a lot of some of the old older comedians doing like like older styles. It's funny like joan has went on record saying that. Like she doesn't like people like phyllis diller I i know i love that. I love the old snappy. Like i said before like the one liner repartee because i cannot do it and i think it takes so much talent to do to really put a throwback in there i i really enjoy the smothers brothers. Ask comedians both in terms of their stand up but more so i fell in love with them watching their old lake. Was it sixties or seventies like tv. Show at i you know i grew up on i love lucy which is saying not a whole lot because if you grew up in america and had syndicated television you you probably watched those episodes back to back to back I don't watch a lot of stand up. That's current to be perfectly honest with you When i do watch. I what i do watch something that i enjoy like. I tend to enjoy it a lot. But it's so hard for me to like. Go through and pick out. Because i think kind of to your earlier point a lot of it does sound like like now you kind of have to be in the mood to make that sort of deal with the the comedian At least especially with the specials that have been coming out more so of late. Some of the bigger unnamed specials overall have definitely thought that way versus. Let me just laugh several times. A minute police one hundred percent and i don't mean to say that they're bad. I stand up. My personal is just my personal preference. Sometimes in what i find is easier to sit down to a lot of the times and you know some jokes are not going to be great. But because she's firing so many per per minute like a lot of them are going to be just hits but the The beauty of it. It's almost like the quantities is going to make quality. Come to the top and joan. i love. I love her energy to lake. The the energy of any comedian is so so important as saying like saying most super obvious thing but like she was always at like a like a twelve at least not just fire in them fast. But firing them big loud and bawdy and Even if you didn't like what she was saying all the time lake it was it was. It's hard to listen to some of her stand up and get either listened to stand up that often. But i would listen to hers because it would always put the in a in a pretty good mood Ingest get my energy up for whatever i was going into. Yeah i and. I love that style of comedy.

Like if you do it on hacks creator on if deborah vans was based on joan rivers after all blah blah blah. He said or i don't i don't know the name of the director. Said she's an amalgamation of a lot of people. She started as a stage act with her then partner. Kind of like a nicholas and may nichols and may so. There's elaine may in there. She had a famous sitcom and then very public divorce. Not unlike lucille ball. We also through. On phyllis diller joan rivers and elaine boo slur and rita redner and paula. Poundstone so many female stand up. So i didn't get the recognition that some of their white male counterparts did and obviously gene also brought a lot of herself to the role. Sweet really became something very distinct. Okay phyllis diller. Yes because like phyllis diller opened. The door for you know for the likes of joan rivers. But i'm sorry like it's joan rivers and let's stop yeah lucille ball. I see a little bit if you do today. But like watching a piece of work by joan rivers like the fact that like and then watch the interview. Where she she talks about getting snubbed for an oscar for documentary like she was just everything of the sort. And like you really come to understand one. Like how fucking funny. She is because she's not even trying to be funny in the documentary. It's really just like her everyday life and to you'll understand her whole life story in like why she never stopped working. I don't know the fact that she's dead is just like something. I still really so wrong. I will never.

"The journey of reap listener go sign up today. And don't miss another edition of the inside. Look you've talked a little bit about how you wish. Sometimes that you spent that time in prayer and that preparing yourself for what was to come might have helped to bring some of that piece. Yes and then you've you've quoted some scripture and i think that sometimes especially as moms we can feel like i am so busy i don't have time for my faith which is why maybe you know. We go to wednesday night. Bible study or we go to sunday morning because we feel like at least. That's on the schedule. And i can drop my kids off at childcare and now i don't have anything to think about but god but then that means that we're really only engaging with him and his word once maybe twice a week and that's it and if we think of god's word as food that's not enough and we're if we're to think about god being like a friend that's not enough you know if you need to foster that relationship so how is it that we can keep a fun household still. Get everything done that. We need to but still find time for that. That faith peace and while you're saying get everything done that we need to also just want to say. We have to pray that our expectations to all right and the seasons that we're living in and as we involve our kids in the teamwork we a lot of times. I do find that moms. I personally don't have a problem. Not a perfectionist. Thank thank fully okay with this. If other people will do the jobs. I'm generally okay with. However it's done i try to teach them how to i'm. I'm okay. I know a lot of moms i work with are so they want it done this this this yeah well. I went to ask at the expense of what like what this is a season. So lowering those expectations letting other people help in then so getting everything. Done that address that but as far as spending time. It's absolutely vitally important that we have the holy spirit failing us each day empowering us being a mom is one of the hardest most thankless jobs. Especially when they're little. I know some people love that phase. I didn't ever. I always enjoyed them. The older they get the more. I enjoy them. Okay the the little when. They're toddlers and their undoing everything that you've just done. Yes what's that phrase. Phyllis diller said like cleaning house when your children are young is like shoveling snow in a blizzard. Oh totally related with that and so realizing lowering our expectations and then realizing that we have to have god's grace on us we have to..

"It was going to truly truly horrendous plate which remind us. Oh gall when i squeeze that thing for the first time lewis okay. Where are we talked about. Oh right okay. So let's let's let's wrap up with this because we we gotta go iphone fourteen. So prosser comes out. This story and as excited as i was when i saw this i was like dude. I actually genuinely worried for his safety right because can you. Can you release a story like this. Pick piggybacking hype on the iphone thirteen. And then saying you're in your video. Don't buy off thirteen. Here's iphone fourteen instead so now not only leaking a potential phone that apple's going to be releasing but you're you're actively encouraging people to skip the current phone. That's about to come out to buy the new one. I just feel like he's dead man like he's either going to get off by a bunch of black suv's when he's driving down the road or apple's legal team might come after him or something. Do you think there's any actual danger leander. I mean you've been around for a while. Yeah definitely definitely looking. I'm looking for the for the lakers. In timely and i think they face serious consequences process kind fairly careful about how he does things. Like all these renders and stuff. He's not using any copyrighted images not using photographs apple. Mike claim to be Trade secrets or anything like that And then it costs lewis wrote about this How tim cook might be going after him for revenge and we looked a little bit of the history. Right lewis. And you know done this before. Remember think secret. I mean that site which is like the front page of its day Extremely popular i mean. They matched associate that to get shut down so actually ceased publication after by apple. I mean that's the thing is they don't need to win. They just need to sue you and they have endless money so if they did to you i think a lot of people would cave just because they couldn't handle the pressure being sued by one of the most powerful legal teams in the galaxy. I can only think that disney might be worse. If you're like i'm gonna create a movie called star battles. That might be doing situation where you might end up in a worse position. But but to your point lender. Yeah i mean he is doing it. Really smart and this this partnership that he has with with ian elbow. Who's doing the renders. I mean he's not the first person to do something like this but this is really smart way of doing it. Because take a design that may have inscriptions or or text on them that that would indicate who was giving him the leak. They get rid of all that stuff and they create their own render and gives people a really wet people's appetite because you can see what the phone is gonna look like an email. It's not exactly right. People love seeing this stuff right so it could be slightly off but still it's going to be a huge amount of attention. It gives people the gist of what they can expect. And yet there's zero chance that his source is going to be found out or at least it seems like it because these are renders and they look so realistic. Like this kid. Actually if anything. I would probably the big apple. I would try to hire ian apples. We doesn't do this anymore. Because like the these renders are really does that one as the but screens you look at the screen. So this render. We're looking at the the the the back of the phone late underneath the front of the phone on the front of the phone. It's phil schiller twitter profile and it says you are blocked from following phil schiller which is true. Phyllis diller does have. Oh my gosh dude. He's really asking for it. Hold notice that he put that on there. Don't by phone thirteen in the actual title of the video. I mean and that's one of the things that That i i mean it's one thing to leak stuff about that. The phone coming out next week right like okay. Well you know it ruins a surprise. But i mean i don't know i was watching us. And it really give people a reason not to buy the iphone thirteen and one of the things journalists out protections right under the first amendment things that publishing trade secrets is. I did a little bit of research. One of the things that that the company can get you for. Is you know financial damage. You know like did you. 'cause financial in injury to us you know and that's that's that's an interesting point. Actually that in the title is like he's really. I mean it's almost like he went out of his way to pick a fight with apple and i just kind of bizarre i mean he talked in the video about like really did it specifically in this way. It's just. I don't know just bizarre. What a stunt. I think the way that he did. It was really smart to garner attention for his video. But yeah. I think. I think what he has to be careful of john. If you're listening what you've got to be careful of is what lewis said is giving people a reason to not by a certain product like i'm a lawyer right so maybe this isn't a big deal but if you're just saying hey here's what we think fourteen gonna look like. That's one thing but if you're saying hey don't buy the iphone thirteen. Because here's what the iphone fourteen is going to look like and then it doesn't happen that way. Well now. you're impacting their sales. And you may be showing something that may not be accurate right and or or they changed to not be accurate because of whatever reason and now you're in a position where if you've injured them financially you really you really are gonna end up in. Tc's torture dungeon see. Now that's gonna be part of your part of your sounds weird thing though right because if they sue him say hey you you publish are stuffed and they basically say that oh this is real and if they just ignore it then i guess people can think oh well who knows what's real right but yeah yeah i don't know it. It's odd i mean the whole i mean we have gone after people in the recent past right. I mean they sent and it was. You know some leaker. Out of china since saddam season desist letter or something like that. Say hey quit. Quit post in these things. And i don't know it'll be interesting to see. Be interesting to see if they fire. Yeah i mean yeah. I mean people bring up goes gives moto i would. I would also bring up louis health and tiger and box. They're happy. I mean when you cross apple in a way that seems like it crosses the line they they take action against you and i think it affects you for sure but i don't know what you're gonna say it gives mode. I mean the the big mistake they made was like showing off the device and saying we actually have this thing where they should have said is that we've been shown this thing and they should have done what he did which is like and stuff like that. Well the actually. They had a physical device by taking possession of i think they set themselves up You know it was apple's property right. So they give it back and It wouldn't be much safer for them. If they had said that they had been shown this device by a third party. You know and then they have i you know amendment protections They're not doing anything illegal. They don't take a position that device you know they don't have Not violin copyrights trademarks. I it's perfectly legal to be shown something here's a new fund appleby coming out with and to report on that. There's absolutely nothing the app can do about it You know it's it's protected. It's journalism but by taking by the i think did they say they paid for by paying for the device then stepping over into legal gray area..

"October's art was was performed October six. And we are so thrilled that you are here today. Lewis Black Because I was just saying to you privately, you were one of the few comedians that really and truly make me laugh. So if you get it, she's it's true if you get a chance to see Lewis in person because there is such Energy and electricity When you see someone in person, as opposed to the the small screen, or even the large screen, which you've been on many movies as well. But my question to you all of these years later, when you were at Yale Drama School. Did you ever think? Did you ever think that your career would explode? And you would have the life that you have today? No, not even close. I was. I thought I'd be teaching theater somewhere. That's really what I figured. I thought I might. I was hoping that the highest that I thought I might get was maybe a play on Broadway if I was lucky, and but hopefully I get some stuff done regionally in you know, like Dumb like the Huntington and Boston or the the wrap up at Harvard. You know, something like that were in that would be And then that would lead to a teaching job. Unbelievable. This This is insane. You've had the most extraordinary career and still going at it and still going strong. Might I add? I have to ask you. Do you think that tell us how this unfolded Because first of all, it's not easy. Coming up with material and the writing piece of it, but it's not easy standing in front of an audience in performing night after night after night. I mean, part of it was that I started as a A playwright and I started in theater, and I've worked with really good actors. So, um, there was I learned a lot from them. And so I didn't And I kind of was and I didn't really work comedy clubs. I've worked, I did shows on the side and like Small theaters or rooms or bars that, um, so that you know, but not in the usual comedy clubs because I never really thought I'd be a comic. And so I would just and it was a way in which I could get my writing out there because being a playwright, it takes forever to get something done. So I would this way I could write something and get it up there. Evan, It's just kind of I ended up with a working with two friends of mine running a space here in New York on 42nd Street, right across from theater row, and I couldn't get work on theatre row in the theaters that they're like Playwrights Horizons in a number of others and But but I ran a space across the street, which was there was a restaurant called the West Bank Caffeine downstairs. We have a theater bar, and we had 100 ft. Little theater with this stage, and there I wrote plays there and then I started doing I introduced every show. We did, and And that's really where I kind of started, you know, honing my my comedy, which is totally, you know, outside the mainstream, so so, which I think helped in terms of its Whatever, you know, Uniqueness originally and then, um, and gave me that kind of freedom. Because I wasn't I wasn't trying to really work in the clubs. So when you first started out and started going on stage did the anger. When did the anger stick? Come through? When was that? How did that evolve? Well, I mean, initially, I mean, it was there, it would come out, but it was not. It was erratic and a lot of it. I you know, Part of what was going on is is that I was going to sit on it because I didn't know really how to do it. And if you're sitting on anger it if it doesn't really help, it's kind of it kind of pushes people away. You have to know how to work it and then a Friend of mine coming I knew named Dan Ballard. Watch me one night and he, uh he said, you know you You're you're angry and you're not yelling and he and he went, I'm yelling and I'm not angry. My stuff is not about anger. Your stuff is, he said the next time you go on stage, I want you to yell everything and I did, and it was a revelation. And when I yell before, I would turn my back to the audience and yell at a wall and then I got And then once I got more and more comfortable yelling out, people, it just kind of worked in a kind of grew and it became, really, I mean, it's where Mike and it also it freed me up because that's where my humor came from. Your humor is such, um it's really quite brilliant and very sophisticated by the way on many levels, and yet, would you say, would you would you? Who would you compare yourself with from comedians of the past? Lenny Bruce, George Carlin, Jack Benny. Yeah. I mean, yeah. I mean, I think that's kind. But it's you know, those are the guys that then he was the one who kind of taught me that you could you know that the importance of, uh Of of silence. You know that. That's where you build tension. Um, but But Carlin and Bruce and Prior and Louis Tomlin and Shelley Berman and You know, all of them Phyllis Diller in their own fashion, all of those folks that in effect on me, but, uh but but I have to say Bruce and Carlin and Dick Gregory Umm Oh, yes, of course. Did you ever? Yeah. Kind of urge, you know, drove it..

Could you knew what the it's like doing bianca del rio. You know what the jokes are going to be when you when you hear bianca del rio.

Yeah yeah because it's man man. I'm just wanting to go down that rabbit hole but were there so many things to talk about. Net worth is zone episode. And what's interesting is that pandora picked him control and she talked about this. A little bit and untucked. But it wasn't it. Kim control was a bad choice. It's not it was. It was a fine choice. It just wasn't the winning choice. I fell you know what i mean. Yeah i felt like. I always go back to this again and again but was just because it was really. It shouldn't have worked in. It did but it was alexis. Matteo doing pregnant lesbian alicia keys. You know hitting on amber rose like you to or amy wine house with spanish access to give yourself a bunch of places to go. And especially i mean. Honestly what is what is funny about kim control. What is funny about whitney. Houston if you don't give them there. Isn't anything inherently funny about them. Compared to fill. Diller i know phyllis diller could have been bad but ginger just told jokes through that character and this is what i wrote down with whitney. Houston it's like. Yeah maybe whitney houston. You don't want to go to the cocaine fan but all you have to do is be the character and tell jokes. Yeah just have to tell jokes. And that's why pandora's performance like wasn't bad she quoted. Kim control that's what she did and the one time she went off script. Oh sorry a hairball. It wasn't funny. I that one i was like. Oh girl get back in the car. You're totally off script. I feel like for whitney. You know maybe you know. Granted we version of it. I'm not saying it's brilliant. But where all of your responses are whitney houston's songs because there are so many and all and they are all so varied that you can find a way to work them. All in and i mean honestly like that kind of simple is all repulse really looking for if i were trinity. I'd be like listen. Jr is going to win this.

Great question for whitney. She believes the children our future. Yeah oh i know yeah. I was waiting for that. I was waiting for some bodyguard. Reference but ginger beater to it. Ginger killed the only thing i would say. Gee i think ginger easily once. I love that she captured the nuance of phyllis diller. Kind of laughing through while she's telling brochure actually the thing on her tits like the semen on her tits like it was. Yeah that was fun. That was the real lake.

And i never really met her. I think i was introduced to her that day when he came to the kotte set But i didn't know her at all but she at a real sad ending. Was there an amount. he sued. You forgave do you happen to recall it. No i don't recall what the amount was. I think it was a game. And i were talking over the weekend. Gilbert and i found it funny that groucho objecting to the idea that he never used that kind of language he said. And if you read the richard anabela books as we all have. Yeah i think the thing was that he was saying it about somebody's mother. That was like that was interesting. Crossing a line for that was grossing. He just likes to sue people at one point. He sued author at one point. Sudas kid your son of a book that he wrote a background show while things groucho and me or one of those books and and they didn't they they had it on and off relationship where they would talk. They wouldn't talk and he he liked to sue. He was very religious. Did you get any feedback from any of the other marks family members about the show melinda or anybody or the only one that i know they came to see the show as we did it in rancho mirage and susan marx harpo grain was very complimentary especially about the old grout show and see said I felt i felt. I was in the room with him. You know it was scary. So i don't know what her relationship was was with him but she Really liked the old groucho. Gilbert does a pretty farrell groucho gave us. I told you. I love to hear it. I am working with our show. Much usual in my heard huge stage and iorean would watch and the people who watch goalie ordering as great great. We could have you guys tour together. We can we do. We do the odd couple together. Now that would be fantastic. Also i remember years ago talking to milton berle and he said he just shot a roast a dean mont rose that i know you're familiar with and he said that they would just put the camera on him and the director would say okay. You just got hit with a real zinger now and now. Ooh i'm shocked. I can't believe somebody said that on. Tv and he would do the reactions to jokes. He wasn't even hearing the director would say and they shot them all separately. So what was it like with you. Forgave was gabe was even a man of the hour. Weren't you gave. Yeah i did about. I would say five or six of them and they would take these shots and cut him in and the editor was not that good so it. It didn't look realistic. Look really strange. Sometimes somebody laughing at something and it wasn't that funny and they put like three different shots of people hysterical and the jokes were bad. Anyway i was telling frank when we talk the mohammed ali. One was the best. Because everybody. I was boxers and comedians and Elite came up at the end and he looked at the teleprompter while he was supposed to read. He says all these people's insulted me. And i don't care because i have. They had in the face of death. many times. But enough about phyllis diller and then he said dean martin team. Did you write this joke. The on the what do you want me insult this. Lady phyllis diller. I don't know who she is. I don't know anything about this woman. Why would i sell to like that. I wanna tell you something deem all these jokes. These comedians and these boxes are saying that all bad jokes boxes can't talk. Anyway they get up. Dude these comed- don't you have any better. You build these big hotels. I mean you got millions of dollars. Can't you write bennett jokes. I say in any. Let me see this next. That's the worst joke into. Phyllis diller joke on how much you pay these people at these jokes. And he's and then he went on for like fifteen minutes. He was hysterical talking about how bad the jokes were. How phony. this whole. Setup was talking about ripping apart just ripping the thing apart and talking about the cutting. You know how they wanted him to do this. And do that and greg garrison got so pissed off that he did this. Meanwhile the audience was hysterical. Everybody on the day was falling down. We'd never because the jokes were bad. You know most of the people would get there and they would read the jokes in the dressing room. And then they would read them on the teleprompter. They didn't know what they were going to say. so they wound up cutting alley down to about a minute a half and they didn't use any of the great stuff that he had done. That's a shame. Greg garrison for our listeners was the producer of those roasts and the and the dean martin show so you didn't interact much with orson sin or or ruth buzzy or or or or john wayne or any of those those people you are on those shows what they were in and out. Yeah everybody was in and out you got there. They had your well. I wrote my own stuff. A lot of the comics wrote their own stuff. But most of the other people didn't they had this whole group of writers that would give him these jokes and they just decided and the concept worked but most legendary harry crane was one of those writers gill. Yeah i remember what used to be uncomfortable for me. Which when i was watching it and they wouldn't go and now ladies and gentlemen art carney. It would be and now ladies and gentlemen ignored and and they wouldn't say now peter full. He roasted his colombo. Yeah yes and that always made me uncomfortable. I thought that never worked. Yes sometimes it'd be will come out and character. Charlie callas was always a character was. Oh with buzzy was always gladys. Yeah right now. I know you're since your remarks birds. We'll move on.

"Now and now it's like non every you're gonna be blown away. She is like. I literally was watching it being like. Oh this is just unquestionably one of the greatest living actors currently doing something that is so electric to watch to watch her acting against a young actor whose name is hannah. I'm binder who is lorraine newman's daughter and this is her first acting job so it is literally a two hander between this young new actor and jean smart who is just incredible and the chemistry between them is electric. Jokes are great. And it's a fucking great show. It's about Jean smart is a kind of old school. Joan rivers. Phyllis diller style comedian. Who's doing a residency in vegas. Telling kind of her same old jokes and this young comedy writer comes into her world and completely kind of up they both kind of upset each other's kind of paradigm and it is. It's terrific. it's really funny. Incredibly kind of well acted and beautiful. I really dug it. I think it's worth watching and it's and it's a half hour and it's great you know what's interesting about that is i have a friend who was that for. Joan rivers tristan. Yes and so. She had written a post the other day she was like i am really nervous to watch his show because it has nothing to do with me but i feel like such a connection to this world and she said you know truthfully she's like i like it captured a one hundred percent in my experience. I mean obviously there are differences. But she's it was interesting to see like how they could capture that so well knowing that that's not really the trajectory of either one of their of any of their careers interesting. It just speaks to like how. How few like significant female. Comedians come out of that era that both hacks and marvelous mrs mazel are thought to be riffs on. Joan rivers is sent. You know without being joan rivers you know it just. It really speaks to the fact that at that time there really just were not many other women. Doing stand up comedy and so you can't help but look to joan rivers as the model or as kind of urge text for that era of of of women doing stand up. Yeah you know i. It's fine that there was. Phyllis diller and not just not to take anything away from from women who were doing. Stand up at that time percent. Yeah no i mean. I think it's a fun. I love those people. I love what they do. And i'm that is next on my list to watch that. I would say otherwise that i think are absolutely fantastic. I mentioned one of them on the main show. Recently we are lady parts which is Nita mansouri show from a british show. It's incredible it's a sitcom and it is like the the kind of loose setup. It is a group of young women in the muslim community in london who form punk rock band and he watches show. I gotta go talk fucking good. I have to get. This is where i need. I you know is is incredibly funny. Incredibly sweet and heartbreaking. It's all about them and their families and what it means to what it means to do this in the face of a community or family that might not accept or understand why they're choosing to do this in for some of the music is considered forbidden. It is really like it's an incredibly compelling show that also has hard jokes and great musical numbers it is. it's i think there's only six episodes but or maybe eight. I think it was only six but they are wonderful and just acted brilliantly. Ooh this is all good. You know speaking of music. And so that i just read a great book. Who from our friend. Tom sharpening oh yeah. It never ends. And if you don't tom was on our show he did the avengers episode. Which is the refines. Yoma thermo one and tom Hosts this show called the best show in. Wmu no longer wmu. It's now just at the best show podcast and kind of. I think one of the pioneers of doing this audio comedy. That this new wave of audio communist podcasts like you know he kinda came up the way that marc maron was on that radio station. Tom was also doing this kind of bang. Bang comedy bang. Bang started as a radio show as well. Yes and but tom and mark had been doing it for like. Oh i'm wild before totally. Yes and and so. Tom is a writer for monk or was a writer for monk. But if you've never heard of sharply and worcester. I i'll do yourself a favor. It's some of the funniest two person. Comedy stuff audio comedy stuff like you can get it on spotify. It's great gas station. Dogs is an album that you should probably start with and it will. It's so so funny. They're amazing but he wrote this book. That is a wonderful. I don't wanna spoil too much of it. But it's kind of writing and how he got his how he kind of fell into it and everything from writing on like from slam magazine all the way to monk and then writing bigger films and and things like that but there is a chapter in it. That made me laugh so much. Because he's such a good music guy and when you show he'd have. These great bands turned me on to so many different people. Well jon wurster. Who does his. Who does as you mentioned john. Lewis who's who does a lot of stuff with sharp ling is the is. A drummer is a prolific drummer. Was the drummer in superchunk guessing. Time in a number of other bands and so they have a great partnership in this. But there's a chapter in this book. I read the whole thing in like really like two days. Because thomas can you read it. And and i felt pressure that if i didn't read it right away i wouldn't read it then i didn't want to feel like i'm taking too long with so i just like our i down this book and it was so fun to read. But there's a chapter in it about how he trying to figure out how he fits into this world of entertainment and he wants to get any trying to doing he auditions for the new monkeys and the story about trying to get into the new mile. Is it's early on in the book and it's really really great. But if you're a fan of tom or you're a fan of best show. I will say that as a friend of tom A true friend of tom. Just a sponsor of time..

I'm not sure we run into, um I don't know how to say this because I'm not exactly sure what the deal is, but some of the jokes because of the music underneath them. We can play on our website and some of them we can't So if it seems a little inconsistent or you're saying, Hey, where are those speed jokes? I wanted to hear him again at WGN radio dot com slash speed jokes. Maybe because we cannot post them there. But you can sure hear them live on the radio at 9 38 and 11 38, and we did have a very good batch today. John did you know that Phyllis Diller's gag file of 53,000 jokes is at the Smithsonian? Reviewable, some of them online. How about that? I'll have to check that out and steal from her. Um I told you a little story a minute ago about the fact that I went to Starbucks and the line of cars was really long and I realized the reason everybody was waiting in their cars because you couldn't go into the store because they couldn't get enough employees to staff. It. And I pulled away thinking, Okay. You just lost my $5 sale boy. They'd be smart if they'd hire more people. And if that means paying more paying more Some of you don't think that's the problem or the solution. My number is 3129817 200. Chris, You're on WGN. What did you want to say? Thanks for calling in. Hi. I'm thinking I'm right in the middle like you. I'm seeing both sides if you go to McDonald's now And you pay your $3 for a burger or whatever, and they get it wrong and you're going to pay them $15, and they're still going to get it wrong. I'm not going there anymore, but at the same time he used to work in a convenience store. And when cigarettes would go up, everybody would say, swear they're going to quit. No one ever quit and it went up and up and it took like 40. I've been paying attention. It's taken 40 years for the smoking to decline, so it might take a long time for people stop going to Starbucks or McDonald's, but I think it's like I see one side. I see the other and I'm stuck in the middle. I don't know what's the right answer. Well, it's you know, I understand that if you gave people $25 an hour to work at McDonald's or Starbucks, it's an entry level job. You shouldn't be getting $25 an hour and it would make the burgers and coffee too expensive and people would stop going there. And now and now, McDonald's suffers. Uh but I'm not saying 25 an hour. I'm saying if it's $15 an hour And you can't get people to work. Then you have a problem. You're not paying enough. So try 16. Try 17 keep going until you get the staff And then if business backs off because it's too expensive. Then you have to low. I mean, find that sweet spot. But clearly 14 12 15 isn't enough. It's not enough. But what about all the other businesses like I know people that went to college and make their jobs are starting at $15, and they went through college, and it's kind of not fair, either. You know, this person just signed up at McDonald's. He's gonna make as much as someone who spent four years in college to get a degree to go and get a better job. And that's where the starting salary is. That doesn't make sense. Does it? Yeah, I know. It's frustrating,.

"There's no guarantee. I'm going to have opportunity to do this tomorrow. What are some of the other things that the dying have told you with. Respect to their regrets. I think the the other. The other biggie is unforgiveness carrying grudges. When you when you come to the end just realized how silly all that is. There's an lamont as a writer. I really enjoy very much. And she's got a great line. Unforgiveness is like drinking rat. Poison hoping the rat will die and our inability to forgive those that have wounded us Truncates our ability to live. But i met this lady who was vibrancy. She was tall and thin and had a voice like a laugh. Like phyllis diller when she was so full of life and in our First meeting she asked me she says. How do you get over forgiveness. How do you how do you forgive somebody or how do you. How do you get over. The pain of that. And i looked at her and said well. You're not gonna like what i tell you. she goes. Go ahead tommy. Whatever how do i get over this pain. I said you gotta forgive him and she goes right. I don't like your answer. But as i learned her story she had grown up she had idolized her father. Her father was a wonderful man who she just adored. Her mother died at an early age. Her father remarried and her stepmother was not kind to her and stole her father's affections which was just awful. In fact my friend that i was serving who is dying admitted to me at one point when her stepmother died my friend went naturally peed on her grave. She was so angry with her as she not only stole her father's affections but all of his money and the inheritance she was supposed to receive the stepmother guy and so is incredibly painful and she just couldn't seem to get past that and then one day and and she was one of the people that never called for me to come visit her..

"Documentary filmmaker Andrew Soul who also owns one of the most valued television libraries of all time when he purchased the rights to the Ed Sullivan Show one of the people on today ask you about and I know you know so much. The deep history of this program is as producer And it was also his son in law. Bob Precht really deserves also lot of credit for finding some of the more contemporary except at his head on the show over the years. Absolutely, I think you know, Bob came into the show. I think in the late fifties and took over and I think 60 61 around there and bail is incredible. Change in the show, and that he invigorated it and brought in a much better sensibility, especially in regard to what the kids wanted and what we were watching. And it was. Very important impact, especially in popular music. I mean, then they realized that before the Beatles, there were always pop stars on but with betel arrival and the impact of that first show at 73 Million Americans watching it in the massive rating. That, you know, having rock and roll on as part of the weekly menu. It's a good idea, and I mean the number of great artists he Brought to the show from the doors to the birds and the stones and the animals and You know anybody who was who some really edgy stuff even for that time, too. Oh, yeah. First early metal, heavy metal and you know it. But then it was the soft soul of Sam Cooke. And you know the The pop stuff of plastic core. And you know, Barbra Streisand was on and but everybody from Motown was on Supremes and the Temptations and Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles Gladys Knight and the Pips, BB King, Bo Diddley, Buddy Holly Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Dave Clark five.

You know, The biggest stars wanted to do the show, and it was kind of their buddy, you know, and he was also before he got the show he was doing charity events and he knew Lot of the big stars. But once he really, you know, had the cloud of the show. He could kind of. Say, Come on. You got to come on the show or what do you want to do? We'd love to have you on the show and You could make it work, and it was a perfect Showcase for them to step forward and say Whatever it was they wanted to share. You know, it could be an actor. It could be a poet. It could be, you know. Um people talking about problems? You know, there were issues that came to four, you know, with Some of the great directors and producers and people speaking their mind about what was going on in America and political figures, and then he'd love having the sports figures on whether it was Mickey Mantle in Roger Marry legends, legends Sandy Koufax and Great football players.

It changed again completely. You never knew what was coming next. Pretty soon there was an animal act. And then you were on to, you know, send your winces and something in the rolling Stones in the room on the plate spinner And you know that clown car, you know, Z. It was really it was really That the big tent approach and the novelty stuff is great. In retrospect, I mean, you can't believe somebody's acts ever. Occurred, but he took vaudeville, which he knew and basically Give it a high tech injection for the day, especially the fact that he started 1940. That's kind of incredible to me. I mean, he was out in the early seventies, but he started in 48. I mean, really one of the first television shows national television shows he was 46 years old. You know, he was not exactly a spring chicken, so he was, you know, coming out of experience of His years in New York in the media and the press, and it also had a fledgling movie career. He did some movies the movies, but he was never really You know, great on film. And once he found the Sullivan thing, you know his show, which first was called toast of the town. You know, he slowly dug his clause in so they couldn't move map because there were too many. Attempts to say Listen to sponsors. You want to have to show we'll change the name that Whatever you want, and we'll get somebody else and if you don't like it, but we want to change this. You know the package for next season that he heard about these things, and he then said, Well, everybody calls to show the itself in. So why is it still close to the town after five years? He got that taken care of, and his name went from, you know being ah, little smaller to being bigger. The host and, you know, getting a little more attention. And then after the Beatles came out, and he made real history, then he had every negotiation with CBS. And he said to Bill Paley in his lawyers, he said, you know, I think it's time that the show not only is the solvent so, but it should be at seven productions. I'd like to end the show on the glorious so there's no way No, we don't tell it on the shows. You know if you come up with the show you Maybe on it, but you didn't come up with this and he said well, I want to own destroying forward. I'd like two shows that are already in the can to be mine. And then eventually they came around, and Petty said, Nobody's gonna watch these things. Anyway. It's old variety stuff. So why don't you just let it have it? Let's keep him on the air and make him happy. That's how it changed in September. 64 bit weren't for that The family wouldn't have found it. And if it works for the family owning it. And I'm getting lucky by asking them what they were doing with it and kind of talking him into selling it because it wasn't really for sale. I just been licensing clips for different shows from No film sometime linen or Elvis Presley or the Rolling Stones, So they're be rock and roll and stuff. I brought it up, and I was able to make an offer based on borrowing of forcing from a bank and praying a lot that I could make. The payment is well that ends well, but it's It's been a wonderful thing. It's like a great sandbox to play in every day. Yeah, it was the 1990. We did it again. We were talking about, you know about practice. The executive producer, married Ed's daughter, Elizabeth, and No, this is collection is 1100 hours of classic television over 10,000. Live performances, You know, I mean, that's absolutely incredible. It is. It's a remarkable Compendium of America, and it really reflects the Postwar era like nothing else in one in one spot and It's really the fifties and sixties intact ends really kind of with Michael Jackson Age 10 in 1971, and it covers the whole panoply of Americana and After 9 11..

"phyllis diller" Discussed on KOA 850 AM

"Crime or Netflix. That'll be a big, big movie. By the way, in case you missed it last night after beat the shark 73. Maybe the two best teams in the West. I have ranted. I have And frustrated. I really have no answer. But again, I mean Comcast guy. Can't see. Can't see the ABS can't see the Nuggets. And the notion of out of sight out of mind has never been more applicability, and I love watching the Nuggets on TV. I really enjoy watching the ants on TV, and it looks like the Nuggets, I think are I think right now, their fourth in the Western Conference, but I've won four in a row four in a row. I mean, it looks like they're gonna be okay. They sort of got the ship righted Jamal Marie's You know and played as well. They've got some new pieces to figure out and when they play at least a little bit of defense, they're pretty good. But the ads look like this could be I mean, this could be a Stanley Cup championship team. I don't wanna get too far out in front of my skis here, but You can't see him now. I know people say, Well, Dave, you go toe. You go to direct TV. I could. But if it Comcast forever and I'm perfectly satisfied with Comcast, I would just And I don't know who's to blame. So I'm not blaming. I'm just blaming the fact that two giant companies Cannot come to some sort of agreement. That can get it done not blaming Altitude. I'm not blaming Comcast. I'm simply saying You know, and Rick we were talking about this last year. We thought, Well, maybe they'll get done at some point soon. I mean, how long is this? How long Have they been off of Comcast? It's been over a year hasn't got the whole all of last season. And now the beginning of this season, I was thinking the same thing today. When I was driving in out of sight out of mind is a good way to put it. Which is really too bad because the Nuggets come on off one of their best seasons in their history. Yeah, and you could really capitalize on that. But you can't watch him in most of the most people who can't watch him at home. It's just hard to stay excited about. A team. Something about this. I mean, this is a Broncos town. No question about that. We're happy the people We're able to watch the Broncos and hopefully listen to the Broncos as we We here call the games. But if for some reason You lost the ability Because there's there's only so many people that can afford to go to a professional. Game whether football, hockey, baseball basketball Whatever. If you lost the ability to watch the games on TV. What would the interest be? I mean seriously. You would have to think of that would continue for any length of time. People are gonna find other things to do They Maybe they come to the radio. Maybe be good for us. But to me, it's the same thing and it's even more important because basketball and hockey are not Viewed As much as the NFL. They're just not there. More people that I have an interest in what NFL teams do in particular here in this town, the Broncos do then the Nuggets in the ass. I love the Nuggets in the ass. I love to watch it, but if I can't watch him It's hard to stay locked in with what the hell they're doing. Here's another thing I saw this week that n BA ratings are up 34% this year from last This time last year, they're up 34%. Definitely not with the Nuggets. Cause you can't watch him. S O. There is a lot of interest in the NBA right now. I don't know. I'm trying to figure that one out too. Why? All of a sudden? But they get a huge spike in ratings. Maybe. LeBron No LeBron playing at a Maybe the best he's ever played. At this time of this stage of his career. It's pretty amazing. Yeah, I guess so again. It's It's weird. Peter King coming up that tunnel six. All right, Dave Logan and recluse with you of Cathy's back on Monday. Bobbin Evans, Colorado on Kaylie News radio. Yes, While I was waiting.
