"Because that's how they spoke to each other and like for instance when I was in the Marines. I had a roommate that I who him and I were roommates for almost two years and we used it amongst each other like but him and I used to always like we were always trying to use the most derogatory terms we could with each other because that was that was kind of our relationship with you know, but like it was not a word I would use other than in that content, but you wouldn't would have to worry about I think this is the true everywhere is like if that third-party here's And they don't have the context and then and that's how I almost died. There you go, because my buddy and I we that one night we open and he brought me to an establishment where I was pretty much the only white guy around and then we got drinking and late at night. I was chatting up this one and actually know he told me to get a drink, you know, it was my turn to buy a round and without thinking I said shut up and his I've got it, you know, of course everybody within earshot were like ready to kill me. And of course my buddy was like, oh no, it's okay. It's okay, but you almost like oh for fucksake, so we kind of we called it after that cuz like I thought that was close. I mean like I found I don't know what your your exposure to Irish people would be no and we're usage having spent so long here, but we same place and we swear a lot in kind of just conversationally. But when when when we travel yeah for me, it was great because like I came from the Marines. Like back home in America. I was always in trouble for swearing too much but then I came over to Ireland. It's like, oh I see it right in so that it was great for me. You know, it's great. But I went to I went to America and Australia too for a time and it's funny. Then you realize like how much you just even use the word fucking for a punctuation You Know spoken that you're probably just looking guy but fucking home and they're looking at you like you're like some cellular or something and you just kind of have to walk going to back a tiny bit for me. It worked out great though. Cuz I was in the opposite direction. You just can never go back now dead. Yeah, that's it. That's it. Okay, so have really interested in Josh about Richard Pryor and comedy and swearing. I know what yeah. What are we going to do? I've just I have to stereo off swing by, we're going to be I think you and I have discussed. This one probably have to be two types of clubs. There's the boat club and the known world club from now on. I think I know which one hour before performing in but I said I think to call and have to have like something like a mask comedian where you go on and do your material post that no one can see who you are anymore. It's probably going to be the only way you can kind of do dangerous material from now on, Yeah, or or you're just going to have to not care if it doesn't ever become a proper career for you know, I think that should be safe.

"King is still looking and the foolish telephone exactly that and and that you can still end up on you know, if you go too far as young I think Carlin's kind of style. I mean he does the seven words but I think it like the the actual DNA of his style was in toward that was a cock sucker in that, you know, you can say cock and you can say soccer on t v but you put the two of them together you can just like it's it's the same words but somehow yeah, true some alchemy off of wasps. It becomes something you can say and like all the other stuff you can say. Well that were said always is always the thing but put these two together became something else and he really seemed to kind of drill down and just the kind of, you know, just the contradiction even in just something about word order. I think everything kind of came out from that. Yeah, what's interesting in that kind of thing? Like say the power of a word is even like priors kind of battle with the n-word, you know, because like before like sixty-seven sixty-eight he didn't use it in his performance and then after sixty-eight it was in you know, every other line in his performance, but then at the end of his career, he dropped it again after kind of deciding that you know, it wasn't a good word to be using to refer to a black man as I feel so even he battled with even just that one single word, you know and yet it was such a pivotal because when he was using it in the seventies and stuff that was the thing it was like like say furniture off the same hearing it being said like that knowing that I'm not allowed to say that but at the same time he was there and then others, you know for the black community claiming the word dead. You know, like there was a lot of just you know, a lot of important just in that word and the way you used it, but you know at the same time he fought with his own feelings about it, but it's like I suppose, you know, a lot of cases where marginalized cultures take ownership of a word that was used against them and then they like it's almost like we're taking this word back for me and it's become our word now, but I know I I feel a bit strange but when there is that kind of but then you can't use it. Yeah. Yeah. Well, it's one of the Things like like Phil mentions like me like I would never use a growing up. Sure. My dad did with his buddies who were like his buddy Vietnam buddies dead. He'd use it with but that was that was a relationship they had with each other and Dad wasn't using it like in a derogatory word. He.

"Wilder and the kind of the way they used to play off each other, you know, and that, you know, that's that's just you know, he was such a big influence on the movie, but then like on the comedy the amount of comedians that would you know, basically harkened back to him as one of the major influence huge know, I I kind of thought what he survive nowadays like he's got such a questionable past that he seems to be held up what you could be someone like Cosby's like, you know, you live long enough dead. They kind of find you. He definitely wasn't a wasn't a choir boy. That's for sure. Yeah, and that's I think maybe that's maybe the problem with modern comedy because I think the great Comics, you know are damaged and like it's kind of the same thing with Fox and foxes. You never to get a great boxer who grew up red, right? It's you know, it's it's the poor guy that's becomes the great boxer and I think it's the same with comedy. It's it's the person who's really Then wrap, you know just gone to the mill because like comedies one of the way of dealing with running to the meal but you think that you can't be a good comic. No, I think she can be a good comic but to be a great comic where do you sit Michael McIntyre then he's not my cup of tea to be honest. I can I can I can respect what he does. But at the same time it's it's anybody could be doing it, you know, like and I don't mean that in the wrong way, but it's all it's all other stuff and it and it just, you know, he's not my cup of tea anyway to begin with But then my my problem is I grew up with Vietnam vets and their humor is so dark. But for me kind of like dark humor was almost the norm, you know, and and because my dad's attitude was like well if you're not going to laugh about it, you're going to be crying about it, you know, so that's kind of money, you know, and I think Richard Pryor came from that same type of mentality that if I'm not laughing about it, you know, it's going to destroy me. Yeah, but it's definitely like I find a lot of comics they they use the stage as a kind of a a free therapist sometimes. Yeah, which I think the only problem is that No One Believes a single word that they say on stage that they they open up their life and they walk off that was so funny that happened to me. Yeah, I think there's those type and I also think there's there's I use the term comic in quotations off. That think that stage is for them to be a preacher, you know to just to get across their message and that's what they they do it as long.

"Yeah, he was raised in a brothel there in a. Illinois wage for 1940s and like I mean a tough background his his his dad was a Prizefighter and depending where some people say a hustler but he wage, you know, and his mother was a prostitute and an alcoholic and he was raised pretty much by his grandmother who actually ran a brothel he grew up in a brothel which is just, you know, quite the eye-opener. I'm sure to grow up in you know, definitely an interesting place to start gaining stories from for sure. Yeah, you know what they say about, you know, it's such a fine line between humor and tragedy that you know, he probably had such a rich vein of tragedy too big to Thursday. To play mine from so he would have been very similar to Carlin. I believe in that he started in the sixties and would have had a very safe act very odd. Yeah, like if you're seeing his early work like the early sixties like basically, he was a big fan of Bill Cosby's which until recently was, you know, one of the kings of comedy and if you look at his office earliest work, it's very clean. It's you know, it's just him, you know, just trying to be humorous trying to be clean more playing on a still be much rather than any intellectual comedy or any thoughts of of who he was or what he believed. and actually I mean the big incident for him was trying to remember what year was it in 67 when he walked off the stage in Vegas at the Aladdin and up until then he would just doing this silly comedy making people laugh. He was there on stage looking out at home crowd in Vegas of just basically all people in suits and ties and you know, he just like what am I doing? You know, and I think he literally just said, I don't know what to say. We first on this podcast. We got to be good. Oh, yeah, we got no no, no, you can start you off. I just said thinking he was like literally stage a child and said you said they were like what the fuck am I doing here and then walked off stage at that time? Like he was blacklisted right-oh Vegas blacklisted him and I think that was six seven when he did that I tell you times have changed cuz I go into meetings..

Barris has jumped on board to make his feature film director debut. Kenya's honored for the privilege of telling Richard Remarkable story saying in a statement the way Richard did what he did with truth was. Self aware and self deprecating and said with unmatched vulnerability that was the power and impact of his work prior had a voice that was distinctly his and in many ways comedies since has been derivative of what he created.

And that's when we find that. We were identical. Identical yes Indian. D- what was Sasha like as a kid? Sasha was very artistic like I remember when I would see Sasha's especially, because when we were kids, we kind of hated hearing about each other, because our parents were kind of against each other like my mother would always be like Oh. You Know Sasha is doing a plane school in her middle school and high school. And I, and then her aunt, who was had would be like. Oh, well, you know D- Get straight as all the time so. Tired of hearing each other about each other all the time I don't even want to hear, but what we started becoming a little older, and we were forming our own opinions about one another I just remember her being so bad cystic always drawing, always thinking always creating. So loving energy always the first thing you would see when you see especially when she was younger well still. You know as a first impression is. She would always argue she has always like loving, so that was how I remember her as a kid. Sasha! What was do you like? D. was very smart like I. Just knew if you WanNa, know something is I d, Goretti, she. She knew facts all the time, so my aunt was telling me that she has straight as I was very impressed by how young she was, and how she was how she was able to articulate herself and I'm like man animal. He'd been an artsy fartsy and I can't even express myself like she. She can, but. One of the things that I do definitely remember as has a huge heart, and she's just willing to help anybody she she's. She's willing to save everybody and that's one thing I admire about her. She's amazing. Do when you were kids. Did you think that comedy was in the cards for you? I knew that it was going to be in the cards. In some shape or form at come from a very funny family, everyone's always roasting each other. And then my older brother also was very into comedy, and there was one TV how I would have to, but he was watching because there was another option, and he at a very early age I knew about Richard Pryor Eddie Murphy. So I knew that I wanted to do it because. It was something that will show my humor, and also my phone very strongly about something where I wanted to just talk about some recently learned the vile that can be a sluice fast, but if you make it into humor, if you make it funny that everybody wants to listen to it. And Sasha for you know. I didn't think comedy Liz. Ever going to be something that I was going to pursue because I wanted to be a singer. I wants to be the next Whitney. Houston and I didn't like her, but I wanted to make songs and. Just, people were always tell me like you're funny like you're you have a for a funny personality or you not to make jokes, and that also stems from my family, because we don't know how to be serious and if anything. That's. Dramatic happens in the family. We always tend to figure out what's funny, but they also put me onto Dave Chapelle Eddie Murphy and all these.

Joan Rivers: Can We Talk?

"Joan rivers career spanned nearly six decades she started with cabaret and off Broadway shows in the late fifties and then became a star of late night television hosting the tonight show and the late show with Joan rivers and eventually the daytime Joan rivers show in the nineties. She was best known for her comedic and sometimes mean-spirited interviews with celebrities on the Red Carpet John. Style was self deprecating abrasive. Everyone was fair game including herself. She charted new territory and comedy by telling stories from her own life combined with her willingness to talk about taboo subjects like hot flashes sagging bodies bad sex and marriage problems. You may have noticed that we borrowed our podcast. Name can talk from this hilarious. Talented and complex Jewish woman. Can we talk? Was Jones signature. Tagline sometime. She's it as a punchline. Sometimes it was a setup. It was an invitation to her audience. A signal that she was about to confide in them. Here's Joan on the show in the early. Nineteen Eighty S. I would not cheat. I would not cheek Maine because nobody asked me but I not because I think why we talk. I think my husband's spooner man okay. Which is very hard to save. I feel very close to you. I especially if you can. We talk was also Jones way of calling attention to her flaws and other people's her way of saying let's stop pretending and tell the truth here. Can we talk? Let me tell you something. The reason I have nothing happy the way I'm blessed is because I'm getting older at least seven very drop because Oh oh you don't know what it's like to get older too. You know what it's like to go in the morning to take facial mask and realize you're not wearing what so. Why did we borrow her? Tigon FOR OUR PODCAST. When we started the show Joan had recently died and we were all steeped in the debate about her role and her complicated legacy as brilliant and hilarious. But also crass and sometimes cruel. We love that. She had so many dimensions and that she believed in telling the truth about women's lives and expanding the range of models. We see all things we knew we wanted to do to. We also liked that. Can we talk was an invitation to our audience to join us in this project of storytelling and with that. Here's a wonderful interview from J W as archive recorded in two thousand six for our documentary. Jewish women in comedy making trouble. Joan talks about her early days at the Chicago. Comedy Clubs Second City being a woman on Johnny Carson's tonight show and playing midwestern clubs as New York Jewish comic later in the interview. She talks about going back to work after her husband's suicide in nineteen eighty seven. She starts by telling Interviewer Rachel. Talbot about a fight. She had with her parents over her decision to go into comedy. I left my house in pedal pushes enter old car that I used to drive and went to New York in speaking of the year and it was just awful and my dad wrote me a letter say that we are going to You'd better come home or we're going to have you committed. I was living in the bars on hotel for women and my dad wanted says and pulled me out. It was a scene. I think they ever forgot dragged me out. It was just horrible scene Harles. They just thought I was really life as though question about it. They just couldn't accept that. This is where I was going to end. This is all I could do so the I went back home and then I went away. Yeah it was just awful and then Pity yes that was great. Second City was very competitive. It was six of US thrown on stage. And it was make up your own lines and get your own scenes going and everybody wanted to be the star second city and everybody wants to get their stuff and so it wasn't like being gracious. It was like I got a better idea I wanted. It was very competitive and that was great too. I learnt in second city. You have to talk up and I learnt the freedom of you. Think it's funny try it. Don't wait don't think about it. I still do that if freed me. It taught me to be tough. It taught me to fight. If you thought you're Si was good you went into four four and a taught me co with your instinct. Only do what you truly think is going to be funny. It changed my life and then you you came back to New York Nissan. You learn so much from second cities are how had your comic persona change came. When I came back with second city I was myself onstage. Good bed or different. I was what I was and I was a divorced when no Jewish smart college graduate not particularly attractive girl on stage and I was telling you about my life. It wasn't about my mother-in-law was about what I'm going through my mother's hysterical because I'm single and I'm having an affair with a married man and my gay friends. What happen to my gay friends and it was all about truth. The first routine that really worked. I had a WIG hairpieces. I was driving into New York to perform at this club. And the WIG flew out of the window and a car drove over it and I said there I was walking on the west side highway. With a dead Wigan my arms had says firestone on and no one stops and all the truth and taking the truth and exaggerated and it just opened me up. I never went back. I never went back to. He's so fat that unless I really believe when did you find out Johnny Carson? Nothing in my career. I think that's why I was that you log come easily ever. I've never been the first on anything all my friends. And that time I was working the village with my George Carlin and Richard. Pryor all these wonderful men everybody got through everybody was on Carson and on Griffin and I was brought up seven different times to the Carson show. I was finally rejected by Secretary.

Stand-up, sketch and satire: The rise of Indigenous comedy

"Charlie Hill was a legend on the stand up comedy circuit. Almost every indigenous comedian will cite hail as their inspiration their motivation and hand aspiration and even though he passed on in two thousand and thirteen the laughter he created. Lives on hill was a member of the oneida nation of Wisconsin Wisconsin. His first network appearance was on the Richard. Pryor show in nineteen seventy four. He was the first indigenous comedian to appear on the tonight show with Johnny Carson and he also appeared on the tonight show with Jay Leno and made multiple appearances on late night with David Letterman. Here's the legendary Charlie Hill. I did this back in L. A. and they didn't quite get it you know they're not used to seeing is in Hollywood. Everybody wants to tables in a circle and they weren't quite sure you know in a in a heckler and I know that she'd never judge a man by the color it was neck or anything like that wouldn't want to hear their prayer Marica. And why don't you go back. We came room so I can't in his living room last week. I was in Washington. DC WE SEEK. Did he show where members of the American Indian Republican Party. Three in the next gentlemen ever met in my life and then coming out here to Canada airport searched and I resent that via need. You were as an alien. You'RE GONNA hijack a plane anyway. Take me to hope. So I'm sitting on the airlines. You know in the middle seat here redneck sitting on each side of me and I'm thinking you I stole my leg ripped up my culture but you're not giving these damn armin don't they. What do you nations? We have tonight on the commentary. Everybody Yawn your your nation. Okay one-two-three antastic. Just thought I heard somebody. I don't even Wanna be that's cool. That's okay we're all welcome here in the circle of humor tonight. Welcome everybody who came but we always CDs. He's one of the power they always WANNA be. So I wrote a commercial called generic they WANNA you tired of being left out in the cold with no native heritage on aware of your Indian roots. Or maybe maybe you have new Indian roots.

"And STAN I'm just before we start with Jesse James Miller you've seen the IM Richard Pryor documentary. What pulled you toward it? And what takeaways did you have? Well, what put me toward it was an interest in Richard Pryor, one of the great comedians of our time. And and I knew a little bit about his background. But I mean, an incredible story of his life and his upbringing, and then his professional life and everything else. I mean, I it's a phenomenal documentary Jesse James Miller, the director is with us. Now, I am Richard Pryor premiers Friday, ten pm paramount network. There's a lot been written about Richard Pryor. There has been films done on Richard Pryor. Jesse James Miller. Thank you for joining us. How is yours different? Well, that's a good question guys. Thanks for having me on by the way, you know. I just tackled as much from his perspective as possible and trying to give him his his own voice. So whenever. You know, we used albums we use our credit as much as possible just to to give him his his do say. And his own film. What surprised you as you did some of the research and reporting on this? Well, I mean like stand I knew I knew a lot about him. But the he's so layered as a person that the farther, you went the farther, you went into this kind of world with that explains. His later sort of lapses into into heroin and the drugs and the women and stuff. So it it made more sense to me the more you you you dived into his into his past. What were the parts? I imagine part of that is growing up in a brothel. Right. Yeah. I mean, it's far more complicated than that. Just the family dynamics. And. And also, the the the white culture he grew up with him as a comedian to was was constraining as well. So there's a lot a lot of angles to him as a person whose genius showed how he overcame a lot of those things. What did you find out about Richard while doing this film that surprised you the most how brilliant he was? You knew that going in. No, like, what do you mean to overcome the degree of difficulty in overcoming all he overcame through that brilliant? No, nothing just in in his actual work. The the just the John RAs he sort of hopped around and went back and forth from the album's to the acting to poetry. We have some poetry in it, which we founded the old radio station in Berkeley, just his vast knowledge of of being an artist really was the depths was was was was incredible for me to find what kind of things like that again. Jesse james? Miller's new film. I am Richard Pryor premieres this Friday, ten pm paramount network. What kind of little treasures like that? Did you find that you were excited to find? I mean, I knew about watched tax, and I knew about you can OPEL with lily Tomlin and stuff. But but that was just because I went and spent a few months and archive before I made the film. With my editor. So we started listening to all his albums and bicentennial and stuff like that. All these kind of treasures that. Of course, you know, the Richard Pryor show. I mean, it goes on and on and on just his genius. Just overlap so many different genres, which was the most surprising part for me. Stan what do you have for Jesse James Miller, the documentarian of IM, Richard Pryor, premiers this Friday, ten pm paramount network? What do you have for him stand? Well, I was struck by the fact that he was so revolutionary as a as a black comedian, and he had so much to say and he paved the way for so many people, but none of that seemed to really make him happy as an individual. And I was just wondering how you came away from this feeling about him. Like were you sad for him? Did you see him as a dark person? Did you think there was an underlying happiness just sort of your overall views of Richard Pryor as a person good questions down? I mean, you know, there's tortured souls and in life. The come across and. Sometimes they're they're created through things they went through sometimes just entered the world that way, I don't know what it is for Richard. But he definitely was hurting. But he dealt with it and he overcame they're striking thing is what he overcame to get to to share with us is genius. So yeah, I mean, it's a good question that I think that later in life. He did come to terms with a lot of things and Jennifer prior really helps with that that kind of are in the story. What what what from his childhood most shaped him excuse me for interrupting. Well, I think grandmother grandmother for sure. She he ruled the the the house with with with compassion, but also with with brute strength. You know, when you watch I think a lot of people last night at the premier were a bit stunned. They're they're hoping. I mean, there's a lot of funny moments in the film, but there's also a lot of layers of and depths of humanity in it so stunned by which part. I'm sorry stunned by which part of the fun part. No stunned by which part, you said the people at the premier were stunned by by the depth of of his life. I think I think people who who walked in without knowing a little bit more about Pryor's background were kind of like stunned by that thing that got me. I'm sorry. Dan. Can you comment on that sort of the contradiction one point in the in the documentary? He was also they were talking about you know, why? While he was making people laugh he was actually angry that people were laughing about things that had been so hard for him talking about his life in his comedy. Yeah. I think that that comes from Michael apps, and that comes from his own personal experience dealing with prior as well. So it's it's it is a contradiction as it's a strange one. I think comedians are. A lot of martyred. That's where comedy comes from is from from the sadness of life. And I think every everybody deals about Chandra of our work again, the new film. I am Richard Pryor premiers this Friday ten pm paramount network Jesse James Miller, the documentarian on with us on ESPN radio. What were the depths of the drug use? What were the parts that made you satis- because it was it was something that ravaged him. Well, I didn't get to to involve with the fire and the drugs. I mean, I I, of course, you have to go there with with Richard. I think you just there's a clip from stir crazy from an interview that he did on the side, which is quite shocking about how how far he went. But I mean, you know, the fire I didn't I didn't really focus on the fire and tried to to substantiate it with understanding him better before we got to that part of the film. So, you know, I mean, yeah, I just didn't spend too much time with it as much as others have. I think most people that's where they get stuck on the women in the drugs. That's that's that's the part of the story that they tell what you're telling us. Right. And what you enjoy doing? You feel like this is the most comprehensive look Richard Pryor. There's ever been. I would imagine given the amount of time investment. Well, I don't know if that's true or not. I mean, I've there's other films that have been done very good films on him. I just I just I'm coming from a human sort of. Standpoint. And and trying to, you know, dresses person down to understand why he did the things he did how he did it. I watched it. I thought it was great. I was moved the one question. I had after watching the movie Jesse is how do you think Levy on babble fit in with the jets? He's gonna be great. Yeah. I don't I don't know about the jets. But I think he'll do great Jesse. We appreciate it. Thank you. Congratulations on the film. We appreciate it. All right, guys. Thanks for having me.

"And it's the comedy store, and he's like they're not really showing what it really was. But clearly instead of Mitzi. There's this girl name cold instead of Mitzi and. And I think they might have said Richard Pryor or they or they created something that was like the, Richard. Because then they go on strike. At the comedy store and Richard Pryor supposed to come on by. And like there was like, you know, so it's all these kind of little moments throughout Hollywood history that are fictionalized, but it's you're watching it kind of like putting together. So it's it's it's it's good. I mean, I don't think it's like a huge hit. Because they couldn't say it's the like had they included. I think it almost could've been more juicy and they could really even had more freedom to like tell the stuff, and you had a Sam can of course, you know. But they're just kind of picking people that are sort of like, they have a Latino guy. But it's not it's not, Freddie. It's not. But it's not his story. But they're just throwing in these people, and they're so it's very fictionalized. Like, what could happen during that time is funny that you mention that goes, Dave. She Bill was up there talking about and also broke the come to resent off to all these years. We've got the same chairs the same cave holes. Hey, black chairs walls ain't been painted since then nothing's changed that but the Carney stories having like a major research God. Yes. On a Monday, all three rooms were packed the belly room. You know, I think so you don't want it kind of went a little bit down. Remember was like when house of blues was across the street. There was too many competing things. Now, it's just all Tico tells and they're kind of like the only entertainment spot. So I think that it's become like, hey, you wanna go to the sunset strip? There's like that. And the what is it the Roxie or the troubadour? Just isn't like a lot of places. I think I remember when the house of blues OPD across the street. I was. That was hard for the I remember I would be performing there. And I'm like, I wanna be across the street. My set done this is depressing. Let me go across the street have some fun. So I think that's really great though. That's that'll even bring more attention to your book. You should have a book signing or something at the comedy store. Should see if paulie shore will will coordinate something now, it'd be amazing. They do like a QA. That would be awesome. Yeah. Oh, he wasn't there less. We've got a Eric challenge to him.

"Well, this is a little bit of juicy scoop history because we got a call or an Email from Richard Pryor junior and his people he has a book coming out, and I know I have a young audience. So I wanted to just again educate you is a little bit about who Richard Pryor is I know the name. Probably sounds familiar, but you may not be familiar with his work. He really was someone who change stand up during the seventies and eighties and was very open about his demons onstage being that he was raised in a basically, a whore house with his mother, and then also had a lot of issues with drugs and alcohol and horrible things happen, which we get into and we've got to talk to his son who's completely open and honest about his own life and being the son of someone that was so revered in the comedy world. Ed, there are some surprising, really juicy stuff. And as we went along the way, I explain it. So even if you're not familiar with this. Median or that era of time. It's super juicy. And here we go with Richard Pryor junior. Well, I have what I think will be real juicy interview about Hollywood and comedy. And we all know Richard Pryor, one of the great comedians. Well, his son Richard Pryor junior is here. He's got a book coming out a little bit where you are really giving some juicy SCO. Oh, definitely until let's tell a little bit about. Yeah.
