My Secret Hack To Increase Your Webinar Conversion Rates
"Right. The webinar fuel Webinar the Anthony. More so than I did really recently. In fact, we tonight for the time you're listening, but recording this day could be week or so. By the time you listen to this this episode, but basically happened. We came in here and we did the web and so. It was a little ready firing. Things was like we planned this to be in a month now a whole month launched and we said No. Let's get it done quick. We gave ourselves like three days. So that meant is like number one which was Monday creator registration page and promoted it right ID number two, then I created the slides because I could which were perfect, but they were Kinda. Good. Day three finish slides, and then we went live, and it was just chaos because we had over ten thousand people registered. We have I think. Thirty five, hundred live cutting, it was chaos so a lot of fun, though and we did the Webinar and overall, the Webinar was awesome. Crushed it sells converted really well like everything was was awesome with it, but the right three or four spots that I could tell them work right right that we miss something. Looking back at the questions that people smit afterwards like they're missing this gap, and the urgency of the scarcity wasn't right in the bud. Things were busy. In fact, it's kind of fun todd. You know I co Co founder and partner Todd. He watched it, and then he messaged me he's like Russell you've messed up. You've heard about this and this and this and I was like house taught. Teach me webinars now, but it was actually really good. It was some of the most of the key things that we didn't click funnels to increase conversions and our webinars and I forgot about it. I was rushing to build these slides out, and so basically was was. was there there was no. There's no urgency in scarcity couple things. If you've ever gone through any my my deep webinar training. Talk about how in the offer stack you want to introduce constraints so later in the stack you can. You can amok was restraints right so what I saw what the thought was instead of saying hey. webinars unlimited everything was coming and saying. Hey, you get a you know. There's going to be limited at twenty twenty webinars. You could build hundred thousand things like that, and so those constraints people nobody constraints with okay, because still pretty good, and then at the end of it like the bonus. These people now say hey, those who get started today while we're live. We're going to release these constraints. Instead of having twenty dollars. You get one hundred or unlimited so this you're going. Get this you can. kind of break things out and so it was cool out of that is. He told them I was like. Oh, my Gosh, she's right and right now were Brandon Fisher on our team. Is that rendering the Webinar and getting it ready? All sorts of stuff like that and say wait before you render the final version I needed record. Some clips ran back to the office. You know it's nighttime now we're. It was the morning or during the day when you. Turn Lights look as close to possible deal before and came back and I redid three sections of the slides to introduce constraints, and then and then only. Restraints by making unlimited offer in. Record those three things quarter part one part two part three brands going through editing it in and then anthea for weight increase with three bonus record right now and then. Brandon said that in taking this presentation, they did really really well, and it's like what are the Holsworthy gap? So could you better and recordings weaving in, and it's really it's really powerful if You badgen light. River. This is probably a horrible example, but it's taught by. Hand is probably tired now, so but on on Seinfeld where it's the time where George's with his buddies and they're. They're They're making fun of him. They keep ripping on him and and he has come back way to stores, comebacks and just work, and so finally he up with the perfect comeback. He's so excited in the comeback with something like. The jerk store called, they're out of you and everyone's like trying to give me a horrible comeback. You'd better come back in. And then he put himself the situations where he can use his comeback. He's been waiting for. It's like this is the perfect comeback. It's GonNa. Crush everybody, destroy him, and and he kept setting finally came back and someone said you know the thing is like the jerk store. They're out of you. You and kind of bombed, but it was funny because he knew all this was lying. If I had this line that would work perfectly and think for for us like the reminder. It's been a while since I've done something like this, but it's like wepener. Overall was given a couple of parts like if I just was said this just had this piece. It would have been perfect I forgot about it and so. This gives me the billy and Tony, this news well have the recording. That's like it's done. It's good, but now I know where to go back and recording him and trying to record it with the same energy level trying to record it same situation close like an so our video editors can weave it into the presentation, and hopefully people notice they do notice. It's such a small thing that's not going to stop them, but it adds in these things that change
Carl Reiner, driving force in American comedy, dies at 98
"The Giants of the entertainment industry. Legendary writer actor and director Carl Reiner has died at age 98 at Syracuse University. Dr. Robert Thompson is one of the nation's top pop culture experts. I asked him what comes to mind first when he thinks of Carl Reiner for someone my age. I immediately think of the Dick Van Dyke Show, which not only was he in, but he created it, And he was the real soul behind that program. One of the true classic American Sitcoms of all time. If you're a little older than that, you very well might think of your show of shows one of the great comedies of the Golden Age of television comedy Variety show. He appeared in that and er Caesar's hour as well, You know, working with people like Mel Brooks and Woody Allen. But you might think of. Ah, him is the guest role he played on 2.5 men. Many, many, many years after that, So here's a guy that was working in television from the very beginning when television was just starting created a really classic sitcom on then went on to until very recently appear in all kinds of Things from the Larry Sanders show to Boston Legal. I think he was enough of the house, so he got around and he kept getting around for a long time, and we haven't even gotten into the movies. He appeared in. Did he make his greatest impact? Dr Bob as a writer, and what is his influence on even the comedies of today from the work? He did. 1/2 century ago. I think if I had a point to a single thing that will be Carl Reiners greatest legacy, and certainly already I think has been the most influential thing he ever did. That would be the creating and writing and helming The Dick Van Dyke Show. We have toe Remember the Dick Van Dyke Show had this very new frontier. Look to it matter affect Dick and Laura had a certain Kennedy Ah, Jack and Jackie. Look to them. Um, it was about a more liberated female character than we would normally see, although she was still a housewife as it used to be. Called back then. But it also was a workplace comedy where rob and all of his coworkers, including their boss, paid played by Karl Karl Ryman Reiner. Did the kind of comic stuff that we would see much later in programs like the Mary Tyler Moore Show. Uh, who can She, of course, was on the Dick Van Dyke show and then everything from cheers friends to Seinfeld. Those also had a very much I think the fingerprints of early Carl Ryder's work on them. We always

How to Send Seinfeld Emails
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them. To a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream. Host DOT COM slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about how to send Seinfeld emails but first and foremost Neil. What does that even mean? What are Seinfeld emails so Seinfeld? Emails are series of emails. And I could be getting this wrong. We call him soap opera emails. Oh they're different they're different. Yeah Gopher then you said okay. I'll go with signed for us and then we'll talk about so proper as well. The soap opera sequence so seinfeld emails. I've actually never seen it episode. Seinfield have you kneel seen him almost all of them. And what did they talk about during Seinfeld Bullshit? Yeah exactly the talking about nothing Seinfeld. Emails is a bunch of nothing right. It could be one email. It could be a series of emails. But here's an example. I remember a couple years ago. I had this hiring course which we still have on how to hire players and I was sitting on American Airlines flight. By the way I do not like American Airlines like this. Why Delta Guy so I wrote this entire message like this is why. Like there's customer support issues with this airline Blah Blah Blah. And at the very unlike by you book a call with us right so the whole idea. Is You write the story? You get people locked in and you kind of relate to whatever your offer is and then. You're able to write seinfeld emails every single day because every day. There's something going on and you can just talk about something that's on your mind or you can just talk about nothing and then at the very end is tied in with whatever your offer is this came from that which his name. Bingo email players Ben. Subtle definitely recommend reading bend. Settle stuff really good stuff on on email copy. That's what a seinfeld email is. And you decide. It's your discretion if you want to send it. The frequency is daily. A weekly whatever. It is exactly I could tell you. Whenever I've said Seinfeld. Emails leave actually converted pretty. Well see I don't send them and I don't like sending them because if I'm GONNA end up sending emails the more emails he ended up sending you're GonNa get more unsubscribe and you're GONNA get less people opening up your emails over time. It's just natural and when that happens you're deliverability goes down unless you scrub your list. And you know Ryan Deiss always me years ago that you can just had a ps at the email and try to get some extra session and all. That's true but I like doing is having a story narrative related to either education and then in the education at sells or just selling straight that way. I'm not drowning people's inbox. Then when I'm sending email I'm during the most amount of revenue from the email. I know that's simple in cliche but it works like I got thirty. Plus percent open rates on my email and my click rates in many cases can be upwards of six seven percent. Most cases are actually like four or five percent for quick. Yeah and just to be clear I think you definitely don't want to spam your audience. I think Ben Subtle sends every day. You typically don't want US send everyday. I mean probably like a week. Maybe that's probably how Neil Nairobi. You email out like two or three times a week that I averaged around three a week. Yeah you don't WanNa hit him too hard neal's point right and I mean we talked about in the past about making sure you scrub your list. Cumulus quality high and everything the hygiene. But I mean this is how you do seinfeld emails. I think you can even add in the soap opera sequence here if you want yes. Soap opera sequence is just imagine a soap opera. You're taking through people ups and downs and emotional rollercoaster and they're really engaged with your show and thus people keep watching one episode to another so when you're writing emails. I like taking people through emotional roller coasters. And the reason being is one it makes you more relatable to they get really hooked because who doesn't love a good story and three we've seen more conversions from it and when using the soap opera sequence in. You're trying to use emotions and take the roller coaster. You don't talk about nothing. It has to be related to whatever product or service that you're selling like. I may break down talking about my journey as an entrepreneur and I went through all these ups and downs and how I struggled but eventually got to where I was and I wish I knew what I knew now because if I did that I wouldn't have to go through all the ups and downs and if you WANNA

You know it's just looking at a pile of your own dumb headshots right now on a swing because photographer told me in photo shoots like have people always tried to make you like hold the chicken or no. Oh really chicken own horrible thing. That's I guess the Kathy Griffin Story. When when you realize when you think you have to listen to photographers that is such a sad. That is a real.

Just hanging around the bars in the in the mid seventies and Just a great guy funny guy. And he's what's He's had some fashion moments over face. And sometimes I I'll say to him God. All those people we started out with was like the beginning of the New York marathon on the verizon and what happened and and He said and he said to me in this was really true. He says they weren't there at the beginning. What do you mean they? Just those there. Are Those people that are there that this is it you know I am? This is this is that I don't know what it was like when you started when I started. If people came in four nights a week it was a quit now. I know you need to be getting at least every night and you know and yeah I mean we would go years without a night off. Here's to New York comics when it came from Philly Philly and eighty four. We only had two open mics Wednesday and Thursday so when guys from New York came through there was sharp. Yeah right but that's what I saw in mark when we met that night. Oh He's one of the IGUANAS those lizards. He's one with the prairie. He's not going anywhere and such a perfect mental illness. Stay and this visit passed around quite a bit over the course of these many years. I've been doing this. I haven't met a lot of them. It's true it's weird. I was like mark. Let's go in that respect for comedy and that and he didn't have that like I should be headlining. You know right out the gate and I should you know very What still no. No that's good. You know I was doing this show in London the couple of months ago and I was talking to Jim Gaffe again and he was in Spain. And I'm going. I need a WHO who I said who should get to open the show. He's yeah that's that's that's GONNA fly up from Spain just to hang out and do sets for nothing hanging spinner. He was doing shows where Barcelona Well Barth is working on this for an Amazon. I one this is really funny. That's the first one. How do you know why he knew he runs the numbers? Your instincts not question mark. He doesn't need the audience. They need him more but it clearly works and I think the reason it works is because sitcoms are so bad the negative things anymore dimension of Performer. Sitcom so bad. It's gotten so much difficult. Why to chart the culture? We did my show in the nineties. It was so easy to make fun of things so easy. You just knew what to do. You know the angle you're GonNa take and you know what that's going to be fresh and it's going to be you know exactly where their head is that we don't know we're anybody's head. Is that now in terms of in terms of three hundred million people. Where's their head at a while? They've never seen some this happened. They've never seen in all the silly stuff we did. We just knew well. No one ever did that. That'll get him all right. Let's see what other questions I wrote. I have a question because I think you're a really great data around your kiss and sausage just left for college and I'm just wondering like where you like a little puddle like what was it like for your total puddle. Everybody was. He's a special kid. She's really smart and then asked falling apart there in the moment. When you're saying goodbye in always I said so. You'll be okay right. Yeah like the most casual question kind of North American University. I think I'll be all right. Should stay here for a while but I do get the question a lot and I always say that. It's kind of like if you found a little baby alligator and you put it in your tub and you think Oh look at this. Look at this little bite teeth. Look at this. Little teeth is so cute. And then some time goes by and you go. You know I think we gotta get this thing. The Hell Outta here needs to go be murdering and eating other living thing. Do they come? Watch your kids yeah? They've seen me. There's nothing do is anything to go to work. I said I'm going out. I got to go to work. He says you'll be back at eight thirty and I go. Oh see the hundred meters Olympics. It's only ten seconds. That's would you say kids like give you the most consistent joy like or maybe eighty or creativity that is felled even frustrated creativity in other words. Just putting yourself in a place where you have to come up with. Something is the only air that we have. Yeah everything else is just. It's not good. And what's your favorite part of? It is the creating it the working on it or the finished product that you can go like. I did none none of that. None of all of it. It just doesn't matter it doesn't matter I'll get over. You have to get over being actually productive. That's the first thing you you gotta forget about. What do you use it down? You'd like sit down you sit down to work. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA try and come up with something about that joke. That doesn't work that doesn't have an ending. Just let's let's work on that. Yeah and and I was doing that before the Sitcom when we got the Sitcom. It was nothing to me. I I've been looking at blank pages for fifteen years. I knew you know okay. We need a funny conversation. And these guys sit down. Yeah okay you know I was used to that I don't know how Comedians who don't do any sort of formal work would write a script. I think that's why they get into that situation. When we've got a couple of producers and they're going to handle the scrimmage no no no you handle handle at best writer in the room right yeah and if your tastes your tastes that matters one of my favorite days of my life. So far was last summer. I was like do you want to go over. The jokes were working on and we just sat in the room and we smoked cigars. And I mean you also got rid of about fifteen minutes of my act like he's like no and also my my closer my special. You know that was Jerry. Ameline those oh I tried it and I was like an A. Became my closer ever go after they see it they go that lining Jerry. I show one time in like I wasn't really working and you're like in my dressing room is just meeting for the first time and you gave me like the fix and I was like this is so great. It's backed out. I still remember you need to always report. Maybe our branch so so if you if we don't sit down that day we don't get.

"So what made up the so-called annoying music. Let's break it down to it's essential parts first up is that iconic slap Latte base at the time slap bass was an element of Funk music buried in the mix it had had not yet enjoyed celebrity status has a solo instrument. Broadly forward illuminated it. put it hot in the mix and it sounded any Kanak. Interestingly these baselines weren't played on a real base Jonathan actually played them on on a keyboard controller that could trigger different samples including bay sounds. It was about at that time that sampling was becoming. I'm really usable. And I use Seinfeld as a proving ground for that bleeding edge technology to get the sound for the original Seinfeld base. Ace Jonathan and Steve took base patches from two different devices and blended them together. The actual original base Oun was Role in defy fifty fifty popper and coreg m one slap bass. I think he started out with the M one. Felt like it wasn't cutting enough. So then we added that defy fifty paper in there which had kind of been hedged to it in what I would do is kind of get a balanced between these two cents while he was playing until we kinda just nailed EXAC- the right sound the base line of Seinfeld checks the actual music of it so basic simple it did not require for beats to a bar do not require meter at all never hold water. I can shut up and start the base to make allowance for the timings of his jokes and his punch lines and the people laughing then there. Those organic sounds that Jonathan mentioned Jonathan recorded. These noises himself off using his fingers and mouth then. He met them to his keyboard so he could play them on the fly. Combine that with a simple Shakur and these noises serve serve as the rhythmic backbone of the Seinfeld theme even the tempo was set around. Jerry's comedic timing. I watched Jerry's standup comedy. And I noticed that he he has a lyric sensibility about the way. He delivers his lines the way he moves. His choreography is facial expressions is move and there was a meter to it that I put different clocks on and finally I settled in on about one one ten. I don't think people think of their offices a workplace as a stationery store with Danish. You WanNa get pastry envelopes. Your supplies your toilet paper six cups of coffee and you go home and that seemed to work well with the metrics of Jerry's is comedy and so that became the tempo of the seinfeld theme in general a few other musical elements were used to emphasize punch lines and other key moments. There was some horns in Vaudeville. When someone told a joke there'd be a rim shot? Will my music kind of serve the oral space of that so the horns would accentuate the end of jokes in the end end of the monologue itself. Let's listen to the opening monologue from the episode the mango notice. How the musical elements ebb and flow to match? Jerry's delivery seedless watermelon what an invention scientists are working on this. I mean other signs devote their lives fighting cancer AIDS heart disease. No I'm focusing on melon. Oh sure thousands of people are dying needlessly but this that's gotTa stop to try and pick a wet one up off the floor. It's almost impossible. I'm devoting my life to that so I guess if they can get rid of the seeds. The Rhine is going next. What do we need that for? Get the Ryen. They're not GONNA stop until they're making the ground ready to eat. Fruit cups growing the idea of having to recreate a recording of the theme. Every every episode was a new concept. I treated it like Lego music. These were elements that could be modular. Modular Lee manipulated to fit the individual timings in the overall length of each monologue. I knew that if this show show win anywhere I was going to have to recreate music. Bespoke for each monologue and so he did to score an episode. Jonathan would watch and rewatch every scene playing along on his keyboard to what was happening on screen. They had to be done to picture. So that the timing's would be right and so that I could maybe use some of his choreography. Sometimes he would do things with his hands or his head. That would give me musical. Instruction the music wasn't just customized for the monologues but also for the unique transitions between scenes like going from the terminal to the plane in the episode called the airport or from the cafe. Jerry's apartment in the gum woman. The gang ends up in a sleepy Massachusetts town in the finale This level of music customization was completely unheard of in Hollywood most. TV shows have one main theme song and a handful of filler tracks. That get reused over and over but on Seinfeld every single episode is unique. It would've saved them tons of time and effort to do things the normal way but that perfectionism is exactly what makes Seinfeld feel so polished even today but the main theme only scratches is the surface of Jonathan's work on Seinfeld as the show progressed. Jonathan got to play around with a wide range of musical genres and tropes these unique tracks underscore. Some of Seinfeld's most hilarious Larionov and memorable scenes. That's coming up after the break..

And the Seinfeld is one of the most successful sitcoms of all time during the nine years that it ran Seinfeld had millions of viewers. It won ten EMMYS. He's three Golden Globes and it's cast become Superstars Seinfeld ended over twenty years ago. But it's still very much alive. It has a huge obsessive fan base. Ace minutes still gets referenced all the time it's theme song that we're hearing right now was unlike any theme song that came before it or is come after. And there's a pretty interesting backstory that you probably don't know behind that Wacky Slap Bass but before we get into it. I need to tell you about my friend Steve. My Name's Steve Lack back and I am. Hey Post production audio mixer and sound designer. Steve and I worked together years ago when we were both sound designers at the discovery channel. I consider Dallas thousand one of my best friends. I really love Dallas. We were both the night shift guys and we both come in around. Six o'clock. nightshift is generally unsupervised. So you come in and you get your assignments you work on your mixes you work on your work. And then when you feel like taking a break take a break to give you a picture of what Steve's like he's the type of person who's lived one hundred. The different lives like the time. He was a circus drummer and got into a fistfight with a clown or the time. He dropped everything and moved to Trinidad or the time he was doing things he shouldn't have been doing in a parking garage that collapsed hours later in the Northridge Earthquake. Yeah Steve is easily one of my favorite people in the world so I would wander over to his suite or he he wandered over and my sweet and we talked politics or the events of the day or sound design or whatever but we got to be pretty good friends because we had several hours hours of quiet time and night where we just hang out and chat during one of those random late nights st told me about the time he worked on Seinfeld. Wait what so apparently in the late eighties and early nineties. He'd been an assistant to a TV composer named Jonathan Wolf. When I first moved to la I was seventeen years old old? And that's Jonathan. He's composed the music for seventy five. TV shows including will and grace married with children. And who's the boss but no one becomes a major not composer overnight. Jonathan spent his first decade in. La doing musical odd jobs and making connections the studios. Were happy to have me. They treated me like a Swiss Swiss army multipurpose utility tool for musical chores. Because I had good training in a wide range of fields but after ten in years Jonathan was ready for a change. I decided that I no longer wanted to continue having the telephone dictate to me where where I was going to work each day and what I was going to do when I got there so I declared myself a composer. Jonathan wrote letters to all of his Hollywood contacts. He thanked them for their support. But ask them to stop sending him these low level musical jobs instead. He wanted to compose original music. Zach this was a huge risk. It's like an actor who had only ever had bit parts deciding that they'll only accept lead roles from now on Jonathan. Knew he might regret it but he mailed those letters anyway. I held my breath. I may have just nuked last ten years of my life. But when when those letters started arriving at their destinations all over Hollywood people just shrugged and said well. That's too bad. He's good utility guy and they started throwing me little writing assignments. songwriting assignments further movies in scoring assignments. In that is how my composing posing career began. This is around the time that Steve got hooked up with Jonathan. He landed. WHO's the boss? And he was doing some other after school specials and starting to really take off as a TV composer news looking for somebody to help out with Midi tack engineering some orchestration in transcriptions setting gear. And all that stuff. I wore many hats. Gradually more and more jobs started coming in we were doing. Who's the boss did some? WHO's the boss spin off shows? Mother sitcoms but getting connected with Jerry. Jerry Seinfeld happened almost by chance turns out in real life. Jerry has a best friend named George. It's George Wallace Comedian what makes me sick. People saying stupid stuff off their piloting unmanned say to me my wife on until I saw you the George Wallace and I have been buddies for a long long time and when Jerry Seinfeld confided confided to his best friend George Wallace that he was having trouble with the music for his new show Wallace said. Hey Call my buddy wolf and so I got a phone call from Jerry Seinfeld. He described to me a sound design issue. Oh he told me that the music for his new show which at the time was called the seinfeld chronicles the opening credits for that show would would be jerry standing in front of an audience. He tells jokes. Oscar Mayer is expanding. His Larry. It's not little anymore is Oscar. Mayer is now a huge monstrous place that area that whole section near keeps getting bigger and for him is not easy to come up with new products that come up with a new product. He has to invent meet no animal as far as I know people laugh. That's the opening credits. And he wanted music music to go with it and I told them right away. That sounds like an audio conflict because what we really need to hear. Is You telling jokes folks deibel laughing. You See TV theme music. Leading into Seinfeld where these epic belting lyrical odes like golden girls a team family ties as Dukes of Hazzard or my personal favorite has eighties. Kid transformers.

"Once in London I played the Oh two which is about thirteen thousand and you know you make a lot of money but the show is it doesn't have that intimacy. It has an have a you. Can I can do shows in front of three thousand or five thousand people where you can actually feel that you were hurting people physically. They're laughing so hard hard. Here's where the term I killed came from. You WanNa hurt people. You know you want them to go. Oh that was too. It was too much. That's what you like as a comedian you. WanNa Kinda wipe them out yeah. You can't do that in front of you know. There's just too much air in the room and I don't know Oh yeah I don't know. I just don't think I could do it. I don't need the I don't want to say. I don't care I wanna what do the do the beacon where I wanNA play because that would be fun. It's more fun for the audience so now I don't mind making less. I'M GONNA be fine that last time I was in Memphis Tennessee Z. And for whatever reason it was just a wonderful audience and a got the show got to this place was amazing. You know that we like in this very tight sync with the audience and it's very very exciting for the performer and the audience and that can only happen in a certain size venue. I think you mentioned a few few episodes is comedy as an art form and you like what are you talking about. Arms is wise and George Carlin seen artist but you haven't compare yourself to an athlete so is comedy. Are you an artist or what part of what you do is. It's the art it's totally. There's nothing about it. That's not art because it's made out of air. It doesn't have a reason it doesn't need to be here. Are there is absolutely no difference between the greatest painting ever made a joke. It's just something someone invented that someone else likes that's art and it and it has no reason to exist except its own virtue yeah so that that's that's what art is but you know when there's a two drink minimum minimum and people are getting drunk to make the guy seem funnier. Sometimes it's not looked at that way. I'm I'm fine with that so this is actually my last question so you know you don't have any intention on retiring but if you knew a thing was going to be your last set would it be your where would you do it and would you do an hour. Would you work on new material. Like what would you do. Honestly I would do the set I did last night. I go up every night going. If this is my last sad I'm want to give them the best absolute best that I could possibly yeah and I got back back from Joe Dimaggio who was one time playing a meaningless game in August and the Yankees were out of it and he was just killing himself trying to make these plays in center field and the game didn't mean anything after as they asked them. Why are you trying so so hard. The Yankees are out of it. The game means nothing and he said there might be a kid in the audience. That never saw me play so that's what I try and that's my code. There might be somebody out there. That's only GonNa see me this one night. I want to give them the best I have. We do have time for Acuna the microphone. We'll be put here. You don't need a microphone here. There's people in the back doc. We can hear them. I do this all the time. I didn't want them to walk up to the MIC like the Joe Franklin show on a walk aw Alan Berg that was anybody remember the Alan burks. Everybody would come up to the Mike know. If anybody has a question for you. Raise your Dan. I yes sir. Thank you you and your Dream Card to you great one. Who would I want interviewing me well. Oh really oh dead or alive. They could be dead pretty interesting. Wow I really going to give you an answer but I I'm going to be thinking about this. The rest rest of the day Jeez probably chaplain. I would pick chaplain. I Love Chaplin and his I've read a lot of stuff that he has said and the I think what would be so amazing about it is that we would speak the same language that the language of comedy Jay Leno made this point in his episode of Comedians in cars that if I show you a scene from Rudolph Valentino movie in the twenties you're not gonNA think it's romantic or sexy. You're probably going to laugh and think it's stupid but if I show you a Keaton or or Chaplin Film from on the twenty same era. You're gonNA laugh just as hard. That's true the fat Guy Rich Guy Fall in the mud puddle right. It's funny now. Nineteen twenty the guys doing this girl earlier you know and you know it seems. Hokey but comedy really doesn't change stay the same so I think to talk to a guy like Vat Vat who has such a deep understanding of comedy and to see how it is so immutable over all these decades would it'd be pretty fascinating. Oh the car I probably pick a a Porsche speedster Zor from the fifties on that's my favorite car right here in front of our wish she would've done yeah. Did everybody the question. There was a story line that we should have done that. I thought that I a that I regret that I didn't do. I had an episode all ready. Go that we were GONNA do entirely secretly in claymation and I had the studio ready and the figures ears ready and it was all good to go and then someone said you know Tim Allen did an animation thing or something in on home improvement last season and what kind of thing was it and I never saw. I didn't know what it was and I got scared off. I don't want people to say I'm imitating. Tim Allen and I canceled and that and I realize now that was a huge mistake and you know we had Kramer taking a pencil and sticking in his as I you know and we were gonNA shoot fake promos and everybody's GonNa think of regular episode was GonNa come on and it was going to be all claymation and so that was a huge mistake so yeah. That's what I regret right here. Hello thank you thank you well. There's tons uh-huh yeah. I mean I do give you the best of what I have. I'm not an idiot but there are there are always other things I have. You know there's another another two hours with Carlin Mellon living room and there's another hour or so with don in that diner and there's good stories there and I do think the show will have other lives of different kinds. I'm not sure what I mean. I've met with some people like thinking about doing like a radio video version. I thought I could make a radio version of the show and and put people stand up in it. You know what I mean. I could take like thirty minutes of Louis. Stand up up and then take the show. Take another thirty minutes and we've all together so you would hear someone doing stand up and then you would hear the conversation but there there's other stuff I can't. I can't remember anything off the top but yeah we have a giant Bank of stuff here. It's my favorite car that I've driven. So far on this show is one of mine was was with Kevin Hart. It was a poor shows spider. There's a loom race car. Did you see that one yeah that was a really great car and that one happened to be my when it says courtesy Columbus Eighty one. That's code for it's my calm. The rest of people are very generous with us and that Aston Martin was incredible incredible though so gorgeous but they're lent to us by a very nice people that are in the hobby and it's really the quality of the cars has been getting better because people think that it's cool now to be on the show the question somewhere in the back there in that car uh. I don't know why people concerned about the car. That's easy part. It's easy to pick a car but Rodney. I could tell you who I knew well now. That's a guy eh where there was what you saw in. His Act is two percent of what was going on with that guy. He is an incredibly interesting interesting complicated intelligent philosophical insane human being and but he loved young comedians hands and hang out with us and it was the most fun thing in the world and this show is made for a guy like that because you would see a human being that you had no idea of watching the I mean I love his act but it was very different from who he was. It was a lot more there was really like a tip but the iceberg thing there Nile Ferrari uh-huh oh nothing's planned Abba take work. No that just happened. It's happened a few cars but that one was fun. Cause Amy got to embarrass me and got to enjoy you know my my big. Fancy car had fallen apart. Yes they do know we're coming coming and but we tell them we don't want you know we don't close the place and everybody else's just in there. I always think it's funny. You can sometimes see people people in the background. They know they're on the show and they just just going about their eating and they're talking yeah they. They don't seem to realize this is a pretty big deal. I can't even calling him and you wouldn't believe honest. Show right the yeah. I love sobs. I picked the soft preferred Arnesen episode. We did last season. The Saab to me was always kind of a uh. I don't want to be part of the world. I WANNA do my own thing and you know the the ignition was on the floor and you know it's crazy company making crazy of cars and force. They failed and you know just a just a company. I wanted to support and those days. I you know if I'm GONNA drive a car series. That's going to get something out of it. We didn't know about product placement in those days. I mean all those things we did on the show the junior mint and snap we didn't get a penny nothing and the network we get so upset you know we'd be drinking cokes and then you can't drink co.. Amish Oh Pepsi's going to get upset well. We're doing it. You know once once we started to get really good ratings. We've just really became bullies with the network. Just do whatever we want these. I haven't seen in it. I've seen it. I flicked. I've gone on twitter a few times. Is it any good of what it really come on. How long is it no. I two. I'll I'll give it a chance. I'll give it a chance. I it's gotta be horrible really okay all right. That's right right. They're good. Yes no I can't I can't I did. I was actually walking home. One day and Amy Schumer texted me. She said you around. I'm just shooting this thing right now. Did you see this the eighties ladies and she said could you. I was just just walking home. Says would you just come in and being the same and I said okay but it's getting we're going back to Amazon. One Click ordering. I can't sit there anymore and wait. I did an episode of Louis last year and I said that's it. I can't do it anymore. I just you know I did. I did too much of it and just the sitting around and waiting and waiting and then okay. Let's take it again this time. Do it this way and how we're going to turn when we got to fix this late I I. I gotTA GET OUTTA here. I do miss that yes as painful as it is torturous as it is we had incredible writing staff on Matt. Show and they were it was so fun to hang out with them and there are those horrible times when you know you have a story and you don't can't think of a funny direction direction and and you'd sit there for forty five minutes and no one would speak for forty five minutes you sitting there with like six or eight people and it's just this depression depression. It's literally depression and no one's talking. No one can think of anything and I've actually read about this with the chaplain to like sitting in these gag greider just sitting in rooms just waiting for someone to think of something and I mean it's a it's a comedy is a bit of a masochistic pursued if you don't have a masochistic streak. I don't think you can succeed because so much of it as painful. You have to Kinda like it in a sick way you you know that this really hurts so but I do miss it. I do miss it. thank you. I do have a bucket list and I looked at the list and then I decided had to turn to an F. and I was done with it. Which is a joke that uh-huh Obama stole from me at the correspondents dinner and didn't get away with it. They busted him on twitter. They go. Hey that's the Seinfeld joke. Whoever.

"Can you believe that I mean this. Is that shocking. I mean this is to answer your Hulu thing so they wanNA and watch it on Channel Five. I'm I'm an eleven watch and that's so that's what's going on. It's it's really but if you're in the business you gotta you. GotTa you know acknowledged that this is how audiences behind you have to understand how audiences behave when you're on the most recent time here on the tonight show you did a bit that was essentially making fun of mail email. I like I don't really like the use of the word male in email using the same term that we're using for the postal service. I don't see a lot of overlap between these two systems one of them occurring in digital fibre-optic hyperspace the other a dazed and confused distant branch of the Cub Scouts. I I watch as you can imagine a comedian. That's been around doing the opposite bit because making fun of like how kids these days they don't have to write. A letter is important to you to be up on technology. No just like it if it's good if it's useful. I'm like anybody else but I'm not trying to I mean I am trying a little bit trying to figure out instagram and I just don't get it just seems exhausting so much work organs so you get so little out of it but I do try and things that get popular. I like to get a little grip on wise that popular earlier but I wouldn't say that I'm that good at it. What I am good at whatever comedian is good at is knowing knowing how to carefully manage an audience's attention span and that is also the key to this show for example. I'll give you another another when the show was first cut together again. Go back to that little scene with the phone about Neta portray just talking to my wife Julia. You says ask your wife about this thing about reports. I go you know what I'm going to ask her right. Now and I take the phone and dial the phone and and then just picks up the phone and I go hi Jess. I'm sitting here with Julia. I'm in the middle. We're actually right in the middle of doing an episode. She has a question about Neta portray the I can I can. I ask you right now. Busy okay all. You got to get rid of all that. All of that goes because it's just bohren now. It's not boring in in a TV series when you're watching TV series. We're watching an episode of a setup. There's a story right. You're hooked on and there are characters and this is going somewhere. This thing is going nowhere so even when I cut it together. They even had me dialing. No no you can't have that that micro-second is on the Internet is because the the Internet is the most brutal medium for attention span the distance from your finger to that off or stop. You're you holding it right there while you're watching you know how many times you see a video you go. Oh that looks good. I WanNa see that you press it and then fifteen second commercials again a no no no no no. You don't get fifteen seconds. It's not that good Amazon.com one click ordering. That's where I got this idea. They understood to click. I don't even want it anymore. I changed my mind in between clicks as a stand up comedian. You must master that attention span dynamic of an audience and it's no different from you know trying to do jokes for four drunks in a nightclub two o'clock in the morning. You've got to get their attention and in hold it so you spend your life doing it and that's what you have to do on the Internet to survive so your documentary comedian is considered by right some to be really pioneering to create these comedy nerds. These people are very into the process of comedy. I was wondering what you thought about that. There's an audience that knows the mechanics like knows. What a bit. Is that WANNA see the process. It's a third question. You've had a lot of good questions. Ashes I also thought that honest is learning more about standup that it might spoil the magic form but it doesn't seem you too yeah. It doesn't seem Joe. I think we just need the laughs that much I mean I I watch comedians and I watched them. Do the exact same set two times in Ro and I know I'm a comedian. I really love jokes but you can laugh. You can laugh a second time. That's a good joke and you enjoy it again. Have you adjusted or you think it changes the way you do comedy. If an audience knows more about the mechanic I know I don't know what they know. I don't care what they know. Oh it's not my job to know I have. I talk a lot with young comedians about. Are there any comedians in the onus tonight uh-huh today that one if you yeah young people now have gotten off on this thing of you gotTa have a whole new our every year and I feel like that's very wrong headed in terms of bringing yourself to the highest level you can get you in. This is real comedy shop talk but I do think that knowing knowing the mechanics is not an issue for an audience so so you mentioned the the new our thing. which is I mean you'd have? I think I've read that. You wanted to film a special. No is it so how much how much material currently only walking around. I don't know exactly but it's probably two hours. Maybe three hours that you know you can kind of just pick things off the shelf and I think we'll do this. I think they'll do that or so. Are you. Generating someone I mean not doing a new hour of new material and not just adding I could I could but I don't believe in it. I would rather do for you the best of what I have thought of in the past five years uh-huh and show you that that then all new stuff yeah. That's not going to be as good well. I think you'll probably agree which is there. There is a desire for new stuff and in that way this show your new stuff. They got to see your process by seeing like now this process on on display okay here to do nothing comes no nothing that he started talking about here then has slowly become an no but things land here that I have no other place place for yeah for example what else I can't take another second one to just take the picture. Nothing happens on three array okay. I'M NOT GONNA get happy on three or you know not Matthew Brady and the civil war going to be a huge explosion. You know it just take the goddamn picture. Let's move on so I won't do that joke in my act just because it's not it's not strong enough but in that context it works really well so you had it and you're like. Oh this might be a time to. I thought I'll do it here and see how it plays. It's really I can't tell you how L. Exciting. It was for me to listen to you. Watch the show because that's something I never get. I never hear anybody watched the show so that you enjoyed it. I I was a huge thrill for me to thank you for that it. Did you learn anything from hearing people laugh at parts and yeah I mean I would go back and re-edit it now I would. I'm a little compulsive also a compulsive tinkerer. You know I love to just. Let's try this. Maybe maybe shrink that section a little bit. I mean that's what standup is constantly moving. The accordion two different sizes is that essentially what I wanted to ask you is there is a lot of communities right on stairs that go up with the premise and then they just kind of over the night carpet down but you're you're right then. It changes so that you're trying. If it doesn't work you're taking out what is the process of a joke at the beginning of the idea to so how it gets ready. I mean I this. Is something my favorite thing to talk about. I I really think they're going to be so bored. It's it's just a grueling process of iteration. Yeah or you think I've been working on this thing about donut hole. A hole is the the absence of whatever is surrounding it okay if they were really donut holes. The bag would be emptied and the donuts that you've got the whole from wouldn't have holes because you took them now. If you want you could take what they're calling donut holes but they are not they are donut plugs could take the plug and shove it in the hole aw which I don't even feel comfortable saying for some reason but that would eliminate the doughnut the whole end the plug but you still have a fat ass and people shooting the cameras. You're walking down the street so it doesn't and I just love talking about donut holes because is that just because of that yeah soon as you bring it up people really that's. GonNa talk about and it's just a silly kind of thing that I like to do but it's quite complicated to bring that subject up and take an audience through it in a a through moronic logic but audiences love to hear about something very very stupid you know but but I imposed in a very rigorous intellect to it yeah. It's kind not philosophical that joke about you know if it was really donut hole. It'll be empty. I mean so I don't know so. It's just if you have to be the will get up on stage night after night and say donut hole. Try this again you know and then when you get it if you do get it. It's unbelievably satisfying to have to say then the big thrill. Is You go to another community go. Have you seen my donut hole bit. All I got a whole thing on donut holes you know and they go. I've seen donut holes. I never thought that that was a bit. I go it's hilarious. Are You keep on tinker with it for years. Yeah I mean if three years yeah I mean if I get it if I get it. You know some things just fall together like the bit about that. You mentioned about the Post Office office where I do. I do the postmaster general. They always send the postmaster. General always has to make a big speech about have a tough time that they're having it comes out and he's freaked out. He's got rings under the is no shave pulling all nighters. We can't do it anymore. We gotta go up a penny on the stamps. There's no way around it trying to get some breathing room because in the infrastructure structure and we're all like hey dude do whatever you gotta do. We don't give a damn. What is a stamp anyway. We don't even know what it costs forty three forty eight making a buck. You're going to get it there so that that once that gets nailed down. I won't touch that yeah but certain things sometimes that kind of wiggle around and you can't nail him and you just keep changing little things do can you think of an observation that you have that you brought up the premise and you can tell them. That's not a thing that we've also noticed like go. Have you ever noticed nine nine out of ten. Do not work so before the two times ago on Letterman. You did your first letterman. What was it like to be in that space to do like the jobs no I didn't I had this whole bit that I did. In eighty one about Bob Hughes the fattest man in the world take off two hundred pounds. It doesn't make a hell of a debt and if you're a friend of is what are you going to say to him. You know you look Great Bob Down to twelve hundred now it. Maybe look at you and as you can hear from this respond. Ah Fat in eighty one is not fat in two thousand fifteen but nobody ever thought it was hilarious is that someone was fat in eighty one you know so can you did you notice how you change like. If I had this premise I would do this. This different a little bit yeah a little bit a little bit but the whole subject I I realized no. This is good. This is not a good Evan. DONUT holes. US Better Donohoe's back back then they did so you've had Louisiana Z's Chris Rock Kevin Hart. Do you have an do you ever think about doing mass in square garden just like as an idea. They've all warming. They're performing. They're not getting I don't I don't so I don't really know if I could. I don't know if that many people would want to come see me but it's not it's just not something and in my day you young people you know I I. I don't even know if I would like it. I only played a a place like that..
"seinfeld" Discussed on GSMC Social Media News Podcast
"Podcast network. I'm your host, see, and it's very interesting in that I have a number of friends and coworkers who really like the TV show Seinfeld. I've tried to watch. I've tried to watch, I think like two associates. And both times just was not a fan. I didn't quite get the humor or something. I think it didn't help that. It's nineties. The styling is very nineties in the sets were just sort of for me and I was like, what is this? And why did I like it so much, but especially my coworkers can just sort of quote Seinfeld things to each other where like, oh, it's like when you know such and such a character did such and such a thing. So they would probably immediately have made this jump for this first story in the I never would. And that people have been talking essentially about a plot for a Seinfeld episode coming true because a new mom failed a drug test because she had eaten a poppy seed bagel. I guess this was somewhere on the show. So what had happened was on the day, this woman went into labor. She had in that morning, had a poppy seed bagel for breakfast, and then later failed a random drug test because I guess they do that for some people when they give birth, something I can see why certain places, you know, we'll be like, oh, to protect the children, but also seriously. I just that seems really, I mean, who came up with that idea, I ran into woman just going from like I've never given birth, but I kind of feel like you'd have to definitely, you know, double triple, check the way you're going to do that before you go about testing because everything in their body be all sorts of out of normal. They've just given birth. That's not like an everyday occurrence. But so anyways. Because poppy seeds are from the puppy plant, which is used to make opium and there for opioids. This came back as you know, she had drugs in her system, and so this was alerted to, I'm not sure if it's like child protective services or something. She had to wait five days before, you know she was given the sort of all clear of, yes, you can have your daughter and take your daughter home because she failed this really random drug test through what was essentially. A TV episode plot, and this is come up before a number of times with things from Seinfeld essentially seeming to come to the point that I'm kind of wondering like, is it not because they were based off real things in again, Nana Seinfeld fan, so I don't know all the back history behind it and you know who was involved in creating where they got their ideas. But like for example, there was a new story in the past couple of months about how McDonalds I believe it is plans to sell Muffin tops, just Muffin tops, not the whole Muffin, just the tops of muffins. And this family also was in a Seinfeld episode because a lot of people mentioned that, but my first response was not, oh, Seinfeld rather wait. Didn't some company already do this? I thought I totally remember like being able to buy this for a very short amount of time when I was in college from. Somewhere like not from a restaurant that would have like, you know, put in a back from some process package, some company like that. Mike. Then at this already happened in like more recently than Seinfeld, why is gonna call my gosh, scientists. It's TV life, but someone else totally also had this idea. Maybe they got it from Seinfeld on like, but it's not just McDonalds, there was okay, Seinfeld, whatever. I guess I just I, I, I'm missing some major pop culture input or something. It feels like. Actually, I don't even if you could do this in Computer Board, but like a jigsaw puzzle. If you take out a peace in the middle, depending on the jigsaw puzzle and how many pieces and how big those pieces are you can publicize still for the most part, tell what that picture is, but you're still see that part that's missing. It feels like that was a lot of things that a I was either just a bit too young for in the nineties and have just never decided to go back and watch or be things that I tried to watch and just didn't finance retaining that people just seemed to reference all the time..
