"Are getting fixed on his netflix series. Afterlife and making it the most popular british comedy in the world for two years running. Please welcome back your mazing and fabulous. Rejuvenates sarah ricky. You recently adopted a new cat and you name the cat pickle and judging by the amount of feline content on your social media. I think you might be turning into a crazy cat person. Should we be concerned. I think you're right. I think you're i've always been a an animal lover. And we lost our of sixteen years at the beginning of lockdown. And i was going to y you know. Because i thought we should get this over with first and then jane my. My girlfriend said oh. Let's let's foster. And i went okay so we foster the cop within two days it gone lap up to me. I said we're keeping our yes. She's lovely ricky fans are excited for the yes. Ricky fans are excited for the upcoming third and final season of your show afterlife and you think it's popularity is actually due to the fact. That death is a taboo subject. What do you mean by that. Well i after the first series. When now i've never had a reaction like and i don't mean just the size of the you're actually because that's a reflection of netflix's having turned million subscribers. I mean it was the emotional side people would come with me on the street and rightly letters and it was all about baz story of grief. I would just come up to me. I love to show. I lost my mother two months ago and it really helped and i realized that everyone's grieving and the older you get the more you have to grieve and and so i thought i had going into series too so i i think people want to see themselves and i think we water it down too much. I think people go can the public type that it's a bit harsh or it's a bit. What they mean is it's realistic. Well is much worse than fiction. You know able to things like language of you heard how people speak on building sites or in school. So i don't get this second guessing what people can tight. They can take it if you do respectfully and you do it realistically and honestly by take anything and as always said particularly with standup no harm can come from discussing to boost subjects it. It's exactly what makes them stop being tabu. You confront things and they're not as scary and there's usually not remotely with people do say you shouldn't talk about that that's probably because they don't want you to talk about it not good. There's a bad thing to talk about it. It's they got an ulterior motive. So i am. I solve i. I liked discussing the dark side. I like disgusting to boost of dick's 'cause it takes the audience little place. It hasn't been before certainly not in fiction and no one really gets hurt. That's what fictions for. Its role play through the solid but no one really gets her. So i think that's what people saw that they live down all these emotions. Well ricky you have hosted the golden globes five times including last year and you're known for taking hollywood elite down a notch or two. It was recently announced. That tina fey and amy poehler are going to co host. This year's ceremony from opposite coasts with additional precautions. Taken in light of ovid does any part of you wish that you are doing it this year. There's always a part of me when something happens when someone disgraces themselves when someone ridiculous. I wish i was hosting tonight. I've got a great joke. But then every time i've said yes to do it was my judgment and christmas is always ruins. What do you think. I'll go white jokes now. You know and you know the reaction you know going into it. Half the people are going to hate me for this so you all those things. I'm just getting too old even the standing up bit. I'm getting too old for down. Doing that's why doing tv shows in the pandemic. I'm at home. i'm sitting down. Whoopie started off saying that. She's covered in lynn honestly. I'm worn underwear for year yesterday on company and food. If i put this jumper in hot water it would make a suit. So you know on on tuxedo. Look good in tuxedo. Look good leonard. Things might as well be comfortable so for that reason. I should do it again every ricky. Everybody looks good in a tuxedo. Everybody i don't care who you are. So let's put that aside but let's let's stand up for a second because yeah i don't believe you. I don't believe that you care what the audience thinks of you. I don't think you care what the critics think. And i don't think you look bad in a tuxedo. So let's just you there now. You have had to postpone your sold out. Comedy tour twice because of the pandemic. I guess you glad because you don't have to stand up. Do you miss being on stage. What's the truth. And what do i do okay. i do miss it. I got halfway through it. I think the last one was stock home last february. And then you've got to keep pushing it back and because it's arenas and they're sold out. I can't even say are do smaller gigs. Those gonna find a place in that venue for that ticket so it just keeps getting pushed back so the admin annoys me. The fat letting people down annoys me. It's gonna happen. I don't know when. I do miss it and i miss going to lovely is i. You know that that was nice you know. There's lots remiss in these situations but there's a lot people worse off the may so when this nurse is doing for hour shifts i'm not gonna complain icon to vienna for the weekend. I'm curious what you think is the future. What do you think is the future of stand up after this. Do you think it's just going to go back to the way it was. Well i mean. I think yes eventually. I don't know no one knows yet. But i imagine this is going to be like the flu that you know we're going to try to contain it and some people still be vulnerable if they get it but we don't know what the next strange going to be but i think i'm i think we defeat it because we're pretty good at this with Defeating these these viruses. But that's gonna be the next one. I mean i don't know in the next one's gonna be You know the good thing about this time is it's now we've got zoom and tv a magic. What the plague was like in the seventeenth century. That must've been awful with no job hot. That was hard. That was there i was there. I couldn't reach out to anybody. That's right joe.

Neurological symptoms the most common loss of taste and smell dizziness headaches. Even unconsciousness and in rare instances strokes doctors are seeing a new potential symptom of corona virus. And it's not exactly pleasant. It's known as Kovin toes. Doctors treating patients are noticing red or purple lesions and swollen toes in younger adults. Yes it turns out that corona virus could negatively affect almost every part of the human body including your toes. And I'm sorry but toes toes. One Minute Coronas in the lungs and now it's in the toes. It's wrecking out. Toes Corona virus is like one of those officers who get selected in every category. Like how Old Town road was somehow nominated for best country and hip hop and best supporting actor in the TV series. Viruses should be like fetishes. Choose one body part and you go all in your company into lungs and Toews me choose elbows debt. Like why can't corona do at least one thing that's cool? How can COOL CORONA SYMPTOM? You know like yet but it also changes people's. Hey then at least. We'd get instagram posts. Tom Hanks it's true. I have corona and we're not just learning about how the virus affects the body. We're also discovering new ways that it can infect your body like for instance. We'll knew coughing and sneezing and touching your face and rubbing your nose on toilet seats but it turns out there might be another way that this bug is spreading trussell. I new study by John. Hopkins University shows that Cova Nineteen can infect patients through their is researchers say virus droplets can latch onto the is ace two receptors and start targeting cells that way they also think tears could transmit infections from person to person. Scientists believe this is why some cove in nineteen patients have reported paint guy symptoms. Yup apparently you can also catch corona virus through someone's tears and my only question is why are people crying into each other's eyes? I mean we all have our thing but who's calling their crush like. Hey you WANNA come over. And what's soldiers reunite with their dogs while we rub is and if this is true we're GonNa have to take some extra precautions. People like from now on you gotta stay at least six feet apart while watching this is us and all those trump supporters who'd been drinking liberal tears. Maybe try gatorade all right. I don't know why you guys even do that. But try something else. So now we know the virus can spread through tears saliva. Oh and There's another bodily fluid that you may want to watch out for you. Study from China found traces of Crow virus in the semen of infected men. It's not clear yet. Whether Corona virus can be transmitted through sexual activity researchers found evidence of cove in nineteen in six out of the thirty eight patients. They studied those six men. Four were still infected and two others were recovering. Experts say traces of infectious diseases are often president. All kinds of bodily fluids. That's right. Scientists have found corona virus in semen. And I guess now we know why it spreads so quickly in the New York City subway but this is such bad news because it means sex is even more risky now. You CAN CATCH CORONA. You can catch. Std's and scariest wall you can catch feelings. I still think about you Sheila. You do that to me. And that's not the only bad news for guys because as you probably know Kobe. Nineteen has been much more fatal for men than women. Yeah Corona viruses targeting men hotter than an old spice body wash commercial and now researches might be starting to figure out why that is one of the other mysteries of covert one thousand nine. Hundred is that it's deadlier for men than women. China Italy and South Korea have all reported higher death rates for men and the trend continues here in the US so wire men getting sicker than women. Well some new research may give us a clue and has to do with a key. Enzyme that cove nineteen uses to enter an infect our healthy cells. It's found in our heart kidneys and other important organs. Researchers took blood samples from thousands of heart. Failure patients both men and women and measured. How much of the enzyme they found. Men's blood had higher levels of the enzyme. Then women you serious men might have an enzyme that makes us more susceptible to dying from Cova Nineteen Than Women. And you know honestly. I can't believe that after all men have done for the world starting to NBA stunning practically every wall by ourselves. This is our award. I mean I guess we had a good run peace standing up. We didn't have to go through childbirth. Didn't have our co workers explained back towards the things that we just explained. It was too good to last forever. And you know some are going to bitch hard. About how unfair Karuna viruses? They're going to be in the. Icu Sucks Dude. There's like no chicks here at all. So what does this all comes down to well? The underlying science is important but for most of us we really just need to remember how easily corona virus is spread and one really simple new video is illuminating that in a way that even non scientists can easily understand covered nineteen has been described as the invisible enemy but an experiment. Is Sean New Light on the virus? As Natalia Cooper explains there are simple ways to keep protecting yourself. A man's hands covered in glowing the dock pint which represents the gems he then serves himself fat mock-up cruise ship FA and so to detain other diners after thirty minutes the lots of turned off and the spread ease shocking the Japanese TV experiment finds the paint on multiple surfaces. It was on every person's hands and on three of the faces. Imagine that paint is corona virus. Surprise surprise buffets are a great way to spread germs. Yeah you think you're getting all you can eat crab legs. No my friend Karuna viruses. Getting all you can eat kyle. But that's why I don't use tongs at the buffet. Everyone is touching those things. Yeah I just go straight in with my hands. Much more hygienic and I guess now we know why. Corona virus has been exploding so hard on cruise ships. I mean cruise ship is just a giant buffet where you sleep over. So that's the new information we've learned about the coronavirus and remember while all of this might seem scary. It's good because the more we learn about this disease the more we know how to fight. It's so don't stress and don't lose heart everything is going to be okay. We'll be right back. We're all screwed. I think I'M GONNA die. Auch dry stopped. Hey there I'm Tom. Takhar and I have a new podcast with comedy. Central called. Stand up with Tom. Takhar you guessed. It is about. Stand up comedy.

Car On apple podcasts. Welcome back to daly social distancing. Show let's talk about Fox News. It's the number one cable news network in the country and the longest serving member of the trump administration. Now if you don't live your life in Fox world it's easy to forget how influential Fox News actually is because a lot of what we're seen around the country the people protesting stay at home. Order saying experts like Dr Foul. She should be fighting. Corona virus was created in a Chinese lab to destroy America but also China for some reason. A lot of that stuff comes from Fox. Is there at least the possibility that the Chinese have developed some type of biological weaponry? And that's what got loose with all of this. We're probably not going to have an accurate count of what the real total is and there may be reasons that people seek an inaccurate death. Count Wait for Dr Pfau chief. Seal of approval to reopen America. We may not have an America to reopen. We're not GonNa let you destroy this country or our way of life. We're were too hard and we fought too long to lose it to a woo and that's what I said. Woo and virus. That China knew about an intentionally protected Chinese citizens but allowed that virus to be released putting the rest of the world at risk. Damn Fox News is so paranoid like the entire network took a bad edible. That's been kicking in for like twenty five years and they're not just paranoid. Fox's actively spreading more misinformation than a sex. Ed Class taught by Mike Pence than the husband kisses his wife. No tongue and God puts a baby in her belly and they keep their pants on because downstairs. There's nothing now what a lot of people don't know and this is really embarrassing. Is that the daily show is actually related to Fox News. Yeah what we found out. Is that Janine? Pirro is actually Desi. Light aunt twice removed through her grandfather on her mother's sisters side and as any good niece would do she checked in with Janine recently to see how she's handling quarantine and I don't think she's doing greats.

Meanwhile here's some good news for New Yorkers who missed their life from before the lockdown although New York City is at least a month away from reopening the New York Public Library has released an album of all the authentic New York City. Noises that people haven't been able to here for two months including traffic noise subway's construction and even crowded streets. Although if they really wanted to be accurate they should also include sounds of people doing the knicks. A bike rider slamming into a car door. And then just twenty minutes of taxi drivers saying they won't go to Harlem but they won't say why you know why but they won't say why and by the way. I'm really impressed that a library is putting up this album. I mean think about it. Noise is the sworn enemy of libraries. This is like a movie theater giving out free Netflix Pasta. It's you know you guys can watch this stuff at home. You don't really need to be here and most people never would have thought that missed the sounds of New York right but that made us realize that maybe off the quarantine is over. We're GONNA miss the sounds of the lockdown too so we put together a little album of our own just to help.

"Idea. I believe in being honest with our listeners and that means exposing you to my flaws as a human being. I'M TERRIBLE AT TECH. Always have been. I look upon the rise of the computer with dread and so- SONAL has spent most of her time as my assistant talking me through or trying to convince me to give different things on the computer at try and I usually don't want to because I'm afraid something's GonNa blow up but this I have to say and SONA and Goral you can back me up on this if you believe. I'm telling the truth during the weeks that we've been quarantined. I've had to do a lot of stuff on my own. I think I'm starting to get pretty good. What do you think well? I'm worried you're going to get two big ahead and start Boston US around tech wise. I'm not worried about that at all. I am proud of you CONAN. I think that you've come a long way because before if I was like okay open zoom. You'd be like Oh what's zoom. You know what it is but you act like you don't know and I think that you've come a long way. I have a mental block about technology. But because we're doing this podcast and were separated and I have to figure stuff out on my own I often am sitting at my computer and I'll be honest. I'll have you guys on speaker phone and you'll be saying now. Press Control all seven. Okay now go up to the file window now. Scroll down to bleep BLURP. Now Press blurp of bleep and BLURP. There should be a yellow box. Don't hit that box. Hit the green box now. The green box should show you a picture of Eleanor Roosevelt. Don't click on that and slowly we make our way through it. You have been doing very well. Yeah I to say I mean because we are still doing shows and you shoot your things you upload them onto the file sharing website. I mean you. You should be really proud of yourself. You're basically doing everything to keep the show on the air so nice job so you're talking to me like a two year old who just successfully made a poopie cute doing so good. You're doing resigned. Jeff you did APOB losers Golden K. Let's do it should be all by yourself? Yes you were stupid. But you're not very impressed when you can do something like this. Did you guys know that my brother is staying with me? Hey Oh wow look at brother. I don't think I've ever mentioned I have a twin. What the hell. How how'd you do that raising going? Wow Get out of here. We're trying to record something. I'm fascinated. Okay well you know what I love. I love when people do visual jokes in an place. Let me explain to people what just happened. We're all on zoom as we as we do this podcast and Matt Gorlic through some of his chicanery trickery and skulduggery justified himself walk in behind him in lean over and wave. How long did it take you to figure that out? It's just a background change and you just shoot a little video of yourself beforehand. Yeah yeah well. I'm sorry none. If you could see that it was really not meant for a podcast. I suppose it was meant for you a little treat for you. Who knows if it'll even go in? I really enjoyed that a lot. I did too. I think CONAN's upset 'cause we were complimenting him and now you attention away while we were complimenting him but Conan I really am proud of you. I'm so proud of you. All right all right. That's that's good handsome but I really am. I honestly yeah. I'm a dragging things. I'm clicking things I'm control all-seeing and control all V ing. Yeah you're copying and pasting. Yeah yeah kind of well. It's simple just to say control all seeing and control being I think than copy paste. You're right there's no alt- when you copy paste. What are you all think? Well there's different ways. They have a different computer. Mind is from the fifties vintage cardboard punch cards. Yeah I actually. I use a computer that I bought off NASA. It's vintage it's in one thousand nine hundred sixty two. Mala decks nineteen seventy five. Jj and so before we do do anything on the computer. I have to stay up all night making punchcards by hand but I did successfully spot sputnik about an hour ago. I'm feeling pretty good. Do you think you're going to go on to do more computer related stuff after this? Now that you've kind of got some courage. No I think the minute sauna you you tell them what I'll do because you know me better than anybody moment we get back to the office. All of this. We'll just erase from his mind. It'll if I if I'll say hey Conan you on his setup zoom meeting. He'll be like I have no idea what that is. I don't know what to do. I've never done that before and I'll say and who were you. I my brain is an etch sketch. It really is. My brain is an extra sketch and developed this over the years of doing the TV show. But I would learn everything I needed to know for that day. The guests today is Matt Leblanc and he likes onions and he also likes to ski and he also learn everything. I needed to know and the minute the show was over. I would shake my head and all of that would be gone. I have an idea because we're running out of pre taped interviews and we're going to have to do some with guests that are remote. We should do it. That the guest is set up technically by you. You have to walk them through how to set up their Mike Record and just see how that goes. That's like asking a small rabbit to build a dodge challenger. It's just not going to be well. There's a factory in Detroit and all the equipments there get to it little bunny you don't I love to do. I used to do this if my I used to. Tell my dog's okay. Here's what I need you guys to do. I need you to go. Listen to me. Listen to me. I need you to get to my accountant's office. It's in the mid Wilshire district and he just gets the fifth floor. There are files their files. Are that pertain to my taxes. In one thousand nine hundred ninety. Six what you're GONNA do. Their expression is so good because I I they just look at you and with this kind of lost like I'm going to try. I'm going to try and do this. But just picturing their paws going through my files. Always amuses me good. That was good all right. Well we'll be cutting down. I suppose that's really good up going me. How do I hold up in this? Time of pandemic I would say I'm holding up pretty well. I think you know. Obviously it helps. We're lucky that we get to keep working so I I obviously feel for people who can't work and that is awful. This isn't you know this is a time when if you have any kind of job as we do where we can keep doing it you just feel so grateful that And and the fact that I can. I talk to my writers I for the show and I talked to my producer and we try and scheme and we're trying to make stuff. I think that's incredibly helpful. That's helping me a lot. I don't know about you so now how you doing you know what I want to say. I know I don't know if we can even talk about this but if we don't do shows the staff doesn't get paid so I mean thanks for still doing shows other. I don't know what I would do because yeah we'd stop getting paid to be honest. I did really look into Israel way to keep doing shows but give everyone the shaft. Oh they don't get paid and I had a team of lawyers. I spent a lot of money looking into it. I spent tens of thousands of dollars working hard to see if there is a way to keep doing the show and gut the staff but I was told that that would quote not look good and also it's illegal to make people work for no money especially during a pandemic so yeah. Yeah thank you I was actually going to thank you but now I'm not so you still have to thank me it because I failed to screw you and the staff over because I failed attempt. Yeah you have to thank me now thanks Conan for failing to destroy us. Oh well thanks CONAN for failing to destroy US and thank you for say this. I'll say this The TV show staff and the PODCAST staff and everyone included here. People are doing an excellent job of sort of rallying round and figuring ways to do their job from home and contribute. So that's kind of neat to see it's it's you know that the silver lining of some of this and there is some silver lining. Is You get to see people adapt and get very creative about how to do things? And so I think that's been really lovely and Gauri. I'm including you in that and Youtube play and Youtube Adam Saks in you to engineer. Becton start calling him. Engineer Becton feels like like enterprise. We'll also I was thinking more like I'll start asking him or making him to wear a little train conductors cap. How's it going engineer? Becton ooh.

Bahir some Carney's playing it and it's a right handed guitar and he's playing it. He's left handed so he's playing it upside down and backwards you know. He's and so the the the low e is on the bottom of the guitar and the high ease on the top which is exactly wrong and he's fit. He's doing it and it's working you know he's he's he's making great music and I just went over and I just couldn't help myself. I said you're playing that guitar upside down and backwards. This is also the police had come. And you're telling another Beatles. Store is.

"See that came from the wasp. That's a siren. And that's going to be part. That's what they sound like here in Europe it's bullshitting as the bullshit enormous. We've been talking. You know what happened if someone that police station. So they've been talking seriously for too long a comedy. Podcast dispatch a constable. Yeah so yes again. Yeah Wha- in this series which I really like the second series is coming out in a few months twenty four April April and I really like the first series the first season and I'm suspicious curious about like cheese. What happens with this character next because the first season is all about you coping with the death of your wife? Yeah and then. There's a lot of really funny stuff in the series but it's dark. It's almost like you set yourself a challenge to say I'M GONNA put a guy in the worst situation possible which lost the love of his life and now we're going to see where I can find the humor exactly and and and that was a challenge going from you know it goes to the city. Ns and nonsense and annoying and trivial and all those things and in his head he was he was suicidal and depressed. So let's make funny the reason he doesn't kill himself because the dogs hungry. Yeah yeah so that to be an that sounds trivial. But it's not. It's actually true when you look at it. You know you have to feed the dog the dog and the dog and do anything and and then he gets through the second phase like now. Casey's okay okay. If I don't kill myself. Oh what do I know I can? I can always kill myself of that. Vote back on so until then I'm going to punish the world now. I'm going to star sign. Exactly I've got nothing to lose. I can say what I want. We saw our wish I could be and we do closes instances in there the Ivan in real life and I haven't been able to do what he did because I live tomorrow. Yeah that'd be consequences with him exactly. I didn't care and the other thing we are is and this is the staple of comedy particularly. Sitcom is an ordinary guy or go trying to do something. They're not quick to do and his is. He tries to be this uncaring psychopath. And he can't and he's got a conscience because about the dog he cares about his nephew. Cares about the Old Lady's graveyard. He cares about the younger so he's his burden is he's a nice guy. He's trapped on even do what he wants to feel. Better I love is the thing in the show where you have this absolute slob that sits opposite you. Who's the photographer? And he's this heavy guy who it's terribly and you start talking about how he's got this little rule of fat on the back of his neck and you just want a pinch it talking about it and what. I love is that he doesn't care no he doesn't know you'll say things that it works for me because he is so he's like a teletubby. He's like somebody he's impervious to does. He says you know. I'm a stressful where we'll have our roles and he knows he knows the. That's what friends do. He knows his affection. It's a funny thing you're bringing up. Which is that. I think we're the same this way. And then there's a lot of people in comedy are really mean stuff is safe for the people we care about the most and I'm I can be so polite to people that are dreadful to me. Oh yeah anyway don't because they. I don't really care if you don't WanNa be embroiled. Yeah don't want to be part of their causal web. You don't care what you do. That's when you walk away when you don't care you know you have nothing to say about them. You're writing I don't want to. I don't want them spending any time in my brain because it's it's a waste of my time right you've spent forty years on this earth. No one really knowing who you were. You weren't US exactly didn't define me in fact I feared and I've still got a little bit of contempt for celebrity. Oh yeah that's obvious and really never cared about money or or fengs as long as I bear some mates. That's all I. That's all I cared about. And so when I got into this saw a game it was it was laughable. It was ludicrous. But will they cared about the first time? I did the Globes what they care about. What is it about them that the richest they're worried about their pickup symptoms of their of their own. Terrar- They yes men. It's like canal. It doesn't matter my we're all. We're all going to die soon. Levin fucking matters just chill out. This is getting very morbid. But I I find gravestones in and graveyards to be very pompous. This must be set aside for me and this stone will mark where my remains are and it must I think what are you talking about in geological time this will all this the minute or super nature and humanity super nature. Everything is done. It's quite existential and I think maybe it's because I'm an atheist because I know this is all we've got this. We've God and I talk about that. That people are offended by that. Like a you don't know maybe I'll live again. I don't fear death or other. I don't feel being dead because I will know about it. That's the best thing about being dead. It's like being stupid is only painful for others and so I don't I don't really worry about it. I have a sense of mortality. Although I don't WanNa be total six months to live now be awful. If everyone died in their sleep we'd have no anxiety right. It'd be great and I'd like a little. Here's what I want to go in my sleep really. No I want a lake a moment so that I can look to a camera that isn't there and do some sort of just one last little bit. You know to the camera. That's not there. Just WanNa look to do. Every day I wake up. I have the best day ever every day in case die in my sleep. I don't want to no one dying. I just want fiddling what twenty seconds really I want. Twenty seconds I probably wouldn't be in the mood I want. I want to be you know what I would do. I would make it more dramatic. If they said you're GONNA have a heart attack in twenty.

It's stuff you and I hate shows that you and I have no respect off. And then he'd be saying. Have you seen this? Have you seen? It'd be some reality show and say have you this. This love island is fantastic. And you'd say well Mr President be like hold on hold on you. Think he's GonNa Shag her. Is he going to end? But also let's not forget if you go back if you go back.

"N. dot com slash span okay so then all these Hollywood idiots get up and proceed to do exactly what Ricky Gervais told them not to do lecture Americans based on their lack of knowledge and this is self assured sense that they are speaking on behalf of most Americans Michelle Williams gets up her hair dyed Marilyn Monroe platinum and wearing apparently a garbage bag on her shoulder I don't know I don't know what that's that maybe that has some meaning if it doesn't and this just a hideous dress in any case Michelle Williams gets up and she starts lecturing the public on abortion okay now what's clear is about this is you just for Ricky Gervais said most of you have less education and going to fun Burke this is literally true of Michelle Williams Michelle Williams dropped out of school at fifteen dropped out of school at fifteen at the behest of our parents and then she declared herself in it she she declared herself free from her parents right she actually filed legal forms that she could be removed from the care of her parents with their permission so she could work as an under age actress and avoid child labor laws I said this is the same left that will declare that it's the right that wants children to work well then cheer people who declare themselves independent at age fifteen but they can go work in Hollywood making whatever she wants they decide makes Michelle Williams gets up this person who again has no relationship with people in in the real world and she explains on behalf of women everywhere the what is deeply necessary is abortion but she would not be where she is at right now without abortion but let me just say this if you're talking about the strength of women and your suggestion is that female strength is so great that you just need to kill a few babies in order to get ahead let me suggest that is not a case for female independence and strength there is Michelle Williams wearing a a dress directly from like the Hari Krishna and the nineteen seventies in a garbage bag on her left shoulder explaining about abortion I've tried my very best to live a life of my own making and not just a series of events that happened to me but one that I could stand back and look at and recognize my handwriting all over sometimes messy and scrolling sometimes careful and precise but one that I'd carved with my own hands and I wouldn't have been able to do this without employing a woman's right to choose thank god or whom ever you pray to that we live in a country founded on the principle that I am free to live by my faith and you are free to live by yours so women eighteen two hundred and eighteen when it is time to vote please do so in your own self interest right on the verge of tears always comfort because and then I love the cutaways to other women looking so so Sirius the cutaways again are the best part of the show Glenn close looking on yes yes without abortion I wouldn't be able to boil rabbit without abortion I would've been on damages and then some young woman I've never seen before and then you get the Kerr ways of all the women looking very serious so is yours and then you've got the cut away Michelle Pfeiffer just gazing into this because this is so meaningful it's so meaning for Michelle Williams extraordinarily rich and famous and beautiful woman says that she would not be where she is that without having employed the registration means that she had an abortion so now she's making the case that she would not be where she is at namely rich and famous without a dead body along her way that's not a great case for your own independence and moral superiority and if you're thanking god for your abortion your ability to get an abortion let me see just a guy you're talking to right there the name god you're talking about something else it's your own ego your worshipping again Michelle Williams for filling everything the Ricky Gervais said not to do and it wasn't just Michelin's is Bizarro world Patricia Arquette who is eight it was a weird al who showed up wearing a pair of sunglasses apparently purchased at the Disney accessory store and she won four I a show called the acts I guess she won best supporting actress and so she decided she was gonna lecture Americans also view the lecture Americans about from because that's what that's what everybody loves what people love most of all it's going to convince Americans not to look for from what you need is more empty headed idiotic actors and actresses from Hollywood who have no relationship with anyone who lives between Los Angeles and New York wearing sunglasses in the middle of the night on a well lit stage explaining that president trump is a very very bad man who's very bad in origin bad we're not going to look back on this night in the history books we will see a country on the brink of war the United States of America the president tweeting out a thread of fifty two bombs including cultural sites young people risking their lives traveling across the world people not knowing of bombs are gonna drop on their kids has and the continent of Australia on fire what the F. is she talking about and also did you steal those glasses from Bonner's closet and also why is everyone in the audience is serious about this like no one in the audience is rolling their eyes no one all these people I love this all the same people from prison unserious person he's an unserious president very unserious we need a serious man in office you know who should lead the way Patricia our cats that's what we need we need more celebrities more celebrities we're gonna tell us what to do you build this guys Hey you you wanna know how from became president because of you because of you because your worship celebrity you may Barack Obama

Ricky Gervais doesn't waste any time offending at Golden Globes
"I last night the Golden Globe Awards Ricky Jr vase hosting let's take a listen to a little bit of what Ricky Jr vase have the sack hello and welcome to the seventy seventh annual golden globe awards I'm with the device thank you and you'll you'll be pleased to know this the lost time I'm hosting these awards so I don't care anymore I'm joking I need to have a date if you do it in a war tonight don't use is a a platform to make a political speech right you were known positions election the public about anything you know nothing about the real world most of you spend less time in school than Greta from bugs so if you come up it's too late in the war thank you I gin when you called I'm not the regular rates pretty funny last night let's get into with Emily Justin's get call Treader over at the federals had been watching all this very closely and only good morning morning then wow this was a breath of fresh air what happened last night yeah it was really great I mean this is definitely recruiter rage stuck so and kind of what his tradition of the call gold is tennis takes no it he spares no body and that's why he's such a fun house the golden globes by that ask them back on again the group because of like the two zero Lisa from Arkansas or shows good fit for them but I thought lessons with little bit different and he actually confronted Hollywood over her one scene in doctrine for being friends with Jeffrey after he can't really just went down the list and he even went on the thing about big tax you know he said that all like to think you're so work so well but look at the company you work for apple and Amazon and Disney and so this is really have a contract in Hollywood Hollywood on some of its biggest blind spots and right to the face of the clock we close it was really really something to watch so is this part of a new trend that we're starting to see we saw Dave Chapelle come out with a very very edgy special for Netflix and got rave reviews from certain factions but not from others but is this what we're going to start to see we're gonna start to see comedians push back against this woke Hollywood that we say oh yeah absolutely I mean is even saris special but came out last year even the shovel who's really best known for having both performance at the White House correspondents dinner a couple years back her new stand up special actually sort of pushes back on some of the the the new rules political correctness and so I think there's a classic comedian and it is a lot of comedians frankly who are so tired of the new rules that their new specials reflect that they're really starting to concentrate on back in their teens so this is something that we're seeing you know become a lot more widespread I think it shows that the momentum has really turned in the battle against political correctness of within the cultural battles and close critical political correctness because comedians you know there's a lot that were hit hardest by some of the stuff I remember Jerry Seinfeld thank you would go to college campus anymore and so they really have been out front fighting this fight and your vases totally been one of the I. with the greatest comedians throughout last night absolutely requested that yeah but then the palace guards closing ranks I you see websites like vox which is a liberal website they came out with an article in advance of Ricky Gervais is hosting last night and and trying to attack Ricky Jr vase for all of his offensive jokes in the past there is clearly a category of liberal writer and thought leader I guess who is very opposed to this type of breaking ranks yeah it's funny I mean he's already gotten some criticism from the last of them like what twelve hours I've seen a lot of entertainment site hosts some sort of like they're criticizing him basically saying tired schtick it's not funny all those jokes are all the same but I don't think that's how a lot of the viewers the host I think there's a reason that he was asked back to the golden globes especially it's just so funny that Hollywood invite him to basically skewer Hollywood's every give his case it's because it's actually really energy unit called about well so those critiques that it's not funny someone I think we're totally flat and I expect that most people were watching last night were very but the people who were watching last night were not the target of the jokes they were the people who were in on the joke switches which is us we've we've been bemoaning the fact that Hollywood isn't funny anymore Saturday Night Live is another one suddenly in the last couple of months or so Saturday's life has become funny because they're starting to to I guess poked a finger at themselves now they're starting to point the finger at themselves now we haven't seen that in a long time from them so what's happening is and if we remember back to literally go Saturday Night Live remember Christmas episode song lists the cast All I Want for Christmas is you to Robert Muller and it was just a moment of their total perfectly calculation of the lack of self reflection how unfunny become and a year later do you really start to see that self awareness that showing up in some of the sketches and I think the trump era has forced Hollywood to confront some of its insularity and you reduce your interesting moment once the orders that you put the idea was that you guys are qualified about politics because that was on the school greens Greta son Burke it and so I think there's been something of the truckers kind of forced them because there's so much talk about all the stuff that's at the front center of the cultural conversation forced them to kind of record with their role with everything now again that doesn't mean that all of them are listening to Trish are cut Michelle well you spoke a very political acceptance speeches right very liberal acceptance because I mean the show Williams who is reportedly pregnant by the way went on tires that it's about portents of abortion it doesn't mean that everybody's listening but I do think you are start starting a few more people
2020 Golden Globes: Winners and Losers
"This is the big picture a conversation show about the seventy seven. Th annual golden in global wards. Amanda here we are once more. We think we know what we're talking about. Enter these things with great confidence even knowing that the Golden Globe boards are famous famously. wonky messy goofy silly stupid and they have shocked us once more. Nineteen eighteen seventeen has won best drama. which I don't think either one of US predicted we in fact you did not pick that I think we thought all four of the other contenders had a good story story? I I do want to say you and I washed together and you. I believe pitched picked joker on our podcast Dixie Irishman. And at one point you shared with me that your wife was going with marriage story and and we watched a two popes commercial and I was like well it could be two popes and you said you. We've now talked about the possibility party of four of the five winners which means it'll probably be nineteen seventeen now. Look you and I are very lucky to have these jobs. We are but I do not claim to know anything like. I'm just going to put this on the table here. I don't I don't know anything. I know people who knows stuff but I don't know anything and this is an example of having any confidence about doing any of this stuff. I thought a lot of Adam. Sandler's character from uncut gems. When that moment happening where I was like this is what must be like to be an awful gambler? I think I went like four for fourteen tonight. Some brutal number. I think you and I are luckily tied at four hundred fourteen. I just WanNa remind you that I very confidently set on the podcast. I I think I got four wrong. That's true and I thought that would have been impressive. It's only get four rowing and four wrong would have been absolutely extraordinary. You would have been going straight to the damn. Am Bank on forum is tough interesting. Telecast tonight I actually thought it was quite a dull show for most of it. There were some head-scratching picks. There were some entertaining speeches. Let's let's we'll get back to nineteen seventeen and all the races. We'll go through race by race but before we do that. Let's just talk. About the telecast itself Ricky Gervais returned earned as the host fifth time he brought a a unique energy the show this year an energy I would describe as fuck all. He really did not seem to care. Think he literally did describe it as that multiple times when he told the audience to go fuck themselves. He was mercilessly bleeped. Throughout out the night He really had the attitude of a person who would be happy to be anywhere else but at this award show I'll be honest. I know it's not cool to set kind kind of enjoyed it you did I. I kind of enjoyed it not because I thought he was funny or useful but just because it was different. I've never really seen that before. There was a train wreck vibe to it you. You kept cackling at like you. Would just he would say something and it would be silent and then and then you would react to the fact that nothing was happening but him just like melting down. I love the idea of people who work at network or a famous person in the audience watching just like quietly recoiling at everything happening onstage on stage. There's something kind of joker ask about that and I I thought your race was kind of like fake provocative. Most of the night and a lot of the jokes. We're kind of like ooh look at me but not actually with anything deep to say about anything which is a lot of his humor in the last five to ten years but he definitely succeeded in bringing just the sheer shear nihilism to the performance. Yeah and I thought that was the one thing that was a mistake. I don't really care about Ricky Gervais xl. I didn't think he was very funny but I wasn't offended ended. My main thought process there is monologue was like oh I really don't like comedy like I don't like the active comedy or anyone who thinks that they're a comedian. It's just like not for me so you know. Yeah that's that's how I spent my time tonight but bio for you by the way comedy. Not For me. It's really not just don't care. I don't think it's funny but I agree that the show is boring and it felt like purposeless a lot of the time and some of that you remarked as we were watching all the commercials for like whatever weird. NBC Plane Show. They were debut and it would say when it was airing on NBC would say like an streaming the next day and there were commercials for Peacock. Doc and Amazon and ethics and all of the platforms and it was just very clear that this is a network. TV like dying right in front of our eyes yes it was a stegosaurus. Soroush slowly falling to its dinosaur needs so hiring someone to stand up on stage and be like this doesn't matter on the one on hand it's true it really doesn't. It's very putting his finger on the truth of the thing but you know they're still trying to get people to watch the show for three hours in order to cover. The advertising is and and to save their network and it I just did. Your Vase just reminded me of like this. Like this is an outdated form like. This actually has no relevance it didn't make me feel feel bad about committing my time to it though for some reason maybe that's just a six drain of my personality. But I I never felt like well I do. Think the show at Townsville purposeless. I didn't think think that his like ruthlessly blase approach to everything. I I just I. I liked it. There was. It was not the same old like back patty glad handing and and also the same Tina fey and amy poehler ask like were above it but will also do the show Biz dance thing you know that. That was raised a characteristic of their three times hosting. I think all of which were pretty fantastic. I I love them as hosts but the tonality of their hosting was always like. Isn't this stupid but also I will perform for it. This was the first time I ever saw anybody in this job. Go like fuck it. I don't care yeah I guess that's interesting as a one one time thing. I don't think you can ever do it again. Right couldn't run it back. Yeah and he swore up and down that he would not be back. I just I understand that reaction. I spent the whole time being like I'm being reminded so many different ways that I have complete control over what I want to watch now and what I content I want to take in and I just. I really really don't need to be listening to ricky surveys right now. which is now because she was defending me or because he was spectacularly unfunny? I was like I don't need this it's a great point I wonder how what what percentage of humans who are watching television. I chose actively to just throw on a streaming service instead of watch this award. Show which is what they would have done. Yeah say fifteen years ago to fascinating thing anything else else to say about your vase. I mean he really just gave his monologue and then came out. And kinda deep side his way through a couple of introductions and that was really the whole show that is true I they will say that the only kind of provocation that I was like I'll give him credit for or the I will remember is every time he would just yell back at the audience. Yes you did it not me. Shades of Amanda hosting play. Yeah it was. It was unusual. I look forward to the future hosts of the Golden Globes. I think we have now served our ricky surveys time. Yes other notable things things from this. TV Show Ellen was was fitted with a with a big old tribute. The Carol Burnett Award which is now an annual award which I guess last year was the first year Carol Burnett won this award and It was interesting I I think on the one hand Ellen. Degeneres is a hugely important figure socially because when she came out that sort of change changed the perception for a lot of people of the gay lifestyle in America and what a celebrity could be in the future. Twenty years of career has been much more about being a extremely extremely rich famous person and posting talk show and I couldn't help but notice an American Express logo in the middle of the montage that to her that did happen and a career highlight montage included her being an American Express commercial. That seemed like Perhaps a subtle metaphor to a lot of the things happening in such an image is to Ellen's career. Yes I agree with that. I will say I thought they keep Mckinnon speech to her was very moving and funny. That was the one time I was like. Oh I do like comedy and and you can see Ellen. Being moved by that. And and that's why she was on the stage. I think I think that's the reason that they can give her the award. Or that's that's the stated reason and then it is also because she's just been on. TV for seven years like printing money for various people. Yeah you the Hollywood. Foreign Press gives out a lot of awards on the night they give out awards to actors and actresses and writers and directors and even composers and Ellen doesn't really do any of those things. She hosts a TV show but there is no best variety show category so she used to be on the Sitcom but that it was a long time ago. Why why was Ellen at the Golden Globes because people who would not otherwise watch the Golden Globes like Ellen and they watch every day on TV and they watched the clips on answering? I gotTa tell you on the instagram explore tab like an interview with someone POPs up. I'll watch that. I'll watch that stuff steph. Every time I wash it into minute increments you know. I also have a lot of thoughts about Ellen's Politics in the last ten years that I'll keep to myself so but but I think did they give her the award because it brings a different audience. Let me ask you this. Where was Dakota Johnson? That's what I want great question that is so good for those of you. Who Don't know there's a legendary moment on the Ellen Show in which she interviewed Dakota Johnson to Johnson Mentioned that she was having a Christmas party. And Ellen said where's my invitation to send it to you. And she said I never got got it. And then they had a bit of a showdown and I think Dakota came out on the other side of that one. The champion is she did because Allen had been invited I believe it to her birthday party. Ellen was out of town and do you know where L.. It was the weekend of Dakota Johnsons Birthday Party. I was she in Amarillo. Texas with George. Yes she was there you go so yeah Ellen was celebrated. That was fine. I tend to enjoy these lifetime. Achievement awards I think one of the sadnesses sadnesses of where the Oscars now is. Because you know no offense but demons like you complain about how long the show is and so we have to lose things. He's like a lifetime. Achievement awards out of the Oscars which gets into the governor's awards which happened months ahead of time. And we don't get to hear about the great works of I don't know Sidney Lumet or Sidney Poitier gay or other great men named Sydney and unfortunately we don't see that at the Oscars we do see it at the Globes and we saw another great tribute to another great great man not named Sydney. This man is named Tom's names. Tom Hanks this was a this was lovely. I was very moved by it. I'm just moving past all the slander. We'll relitigate the Oscars for two and a half hour. Make them you know. Don't link continuous. Shot make a good TV show making good TV. Show that people WANNA watch all the way to save movies. It's the only way to save TV. It's the only way to save like I don't know celebrities and rooms together just make TV. Show anyway. I thought the time hanks was good TV. Because you know who's Great Tom. BUGGING HANGS AMERICA'S SWEETHEART GETS UP. There starts crying two seconds because his family sitting in the wrought Edison because he was on. I think he's a nice person. And he was like someone had fed him Hypno- and he was he was fading out and then he just goes goes into like your uncle who knows a lot about making movies and wants to give you advice mode. It was great told you all about the gate. Yeah the gate cleans. The closing properly is a I also just watching the montage. I just pointed out to me I just really love Tom. Hanks his work and also I was thinking about our podcast and the hall of fame. And I'm really really mad that I caved on. You've got mail. I should have put it in over sleepless in Seattle. I'm just saying that now. I'd like to apologize to the many people who reach out to let me know that they would have supported. Did that decision. I let you guys down. I will say I have not thought about that one. Since can I have thought frequently about how we left Saving Private Ryan off. which was you? It was my fault but I was reminded instantaneously upon that podcast publishing. In fact that podcast went live and I felt like three seconds later. People were like where saving private private Ryan. Even though they had not listened to it we next it saving private Ryan did make an appearance in this montage Tom Hanks's made like thirty bad movies. And it doesn't matter because his good movies are so good in so meaningful to people and his funkier sincere just general good guy nece makes people feel good and he happened to be in a good movie this year which is very helpful. He did not win unfortunately though he was nominated for best supporting actor for Beautiful Day in the neighborhood I thought it was great. I thought you know. That's not really surprising. He he is professionally decent and he seemed like a good person. He was very happy to have his family there. He was very happy to pay a lot of respect to Martin. Scorsese I believe. He gestured towards him three times during his speech which was adorable. You know I just. I wish that there were actually more things like yes. I like to be reminded of the people I like making these movies. That's the whole point of these award. Shows it's not to like breakdown whether nineteen seventeen is going to win at the Oscars like that's rusted. Do the awards shows themselves are to celebrate the great people in the great stuff. I still like that.

Somebody isolates that and before you know, it you're, you know, you're you're kicked off here wolf boy. You gotta go into hiding getting on a podcast hiding. Yeah. That live over the weekend the potties. Good Mark Myrna pressure. Yeah. It was a very good. Mark. You don't like You it. know, I was fine. It's just I- your calmness at your response to it is is surprising given that is is Marc Maron known as the godfather of podcasting. Is that a thing? I think I think people have thrown at me, and Adam Corolla, I think we're the two that have been I don't I literally what Ricky Gervais where could you called the podfather as much as he's almost impossible to like these days. You've got to say like he was the first liberty bug. I am not dismissing any of that. He asked me a question. I'm just saying that law Bill through people throw it at me, and Adam Corolla, they I think lazy journalists throw it at Marc Mero. They haven't done the research. That's right. The eight if they do and Mark mirror tells me that in interviews that he in every interview he says Welby Jimmy Pardo was doing it before me, he gives you know. And I believe Scott argument. He gives Merrin is good about that. I don't know of other podcasters are. But I know that Mark says I take him at his word because I know four. What's the please help me? I know for a fact that doesn't sell right by my own experience that when I have mentioned certain things or people in interviews and for. Space reasons, they are edited out, right? Right. And so I know what I've done. So by my point is this Merrin says he says it every interview that Jimmy Pardo is is the actual godfather podcast. I'm not, but Ricky surveys is and before that it had him curry and so on and so forth. You even keeping the girl. There's others that came before us. But I think again, I'm the one that people seem to I had the I was the guy with a following other than Ricky surveys. If that doesn't count tease celebrity and that was a radio show, right? They were doing just ported it to the podcast world, which is fine. But in the world of of standing up comedy on the west coast. I was the first guy to have one right, theoretically. I don't know if that's even true..
