Fresh update on "steve martin" discussed on Dogma Debate
"It would depend on what we consider to be the general we talking biological no does he have a physical body? No unless you're mormon than he totally does You know I, think it's pretty clear that the Bible refers to God as as a male. So how can say how how can you say that he's he's the father in heaven and then he's the father of Jesus in that he's the father of all these things and you say he when you refer to God but didn't say he doesn't have a gender. I would I would like I said I would say an anthropomorphic terms. Just the the attributing human characteristics to. something. So since the mail is the The. Within scripture as more authoritative is the stronger one is the. One that makes the decisions and I think we actually talked about that and one of our previous debates. Because of that you're going to in order to you're you're not just going to say it right within within scripture within the authors you're not if you believe that God exists which obviously we know the people who wrote scripture believed God existed, right? Is You're going to write that you're going to give honor to the D.. You're GONNA to give honor to the one you serve and so in. You're not going to call it. You're not going to call it a what you're going to anthropomorphic going to apply some sort of gender to it even though definition, it would be genderless. Yeah I once referred to God as it in my book or in some blog before I wrote my book. And a pastor in Texas did a two day sermon. On my top ten reasons for atheism it's actually the first ever episode of Dogma Debate. the two, thousand, twelve version. none of the episodes are still existing from two thousand and ten to two, thousand twelve. But the very the the earliest episode you can go find of this show. they he he it's called ten top ten reasons I'm atheist I think I added an eleven. But He did two days with a sermons on that and when I referred to God is it during one of my just off the cuff remarks I was kind of thinking of God that way and in no gender-based but like a supreme being and then I, said it he focused so hard on that that I was being disrespectful that I was looking at God as though he was a dog at I was he was nothing objectify God I mean he got so offended by that do you feel the same way when people say God doesn't have a gender and? To say that if I were to say it or. I mean this guy was a church of Christ. You know speaking in tongues type guy. So maybe just a different belief system, I don't know. Yeah. No. No I wouldn't whatsoever because you're an atheist I'm not going to expect you to live by the same standard that I live by I'm not gonNA expect you to follow the word of God in the same way I saw the word of God or the ideas of Christianity or anything like that because you emphatically. Say you're an unbeliever. So why would I hold you to those standards of call about it? I. Mean. It does really it doesn't faze me now if you were like, I'm a Christian God's in it. Now, we could have a conversation but yes you like, say you personally or anyone who puts title atheist I'm not going to. I'm not. GonNa Freak out about.

Steve Martin On His Years As A Comic — And Walking Away From Stand-Up
"But if you could hold Steve Martin has been making people laugh often with highly conceptual humor since the nineteen sixties when he was a staff writer on the smothers brothers comedy hour in the seventies he became a major stand up comedy star filling arenas with his fans he rose to fame along with his then new TV show called Saturday Night Live on which he made many memorable appearances as a wild and crazy guy a medieval barber and a fan of king tut eventually the fame that brought in huge audiences also made it impossible for him to do the kind of comedy that made him original he starred in movies from the jerk to parenthood and in recent years has also written plays essays and books and toured with both his bluegrass band and with friend and fellow comic Martin short Steve Martin won the Mark Twain prize for American humor in two thousand five in was a Kennedy center honoree in two thousand seven Terry gross spoke with Steve Martin in two thousand eight about his memoir born standing up Steve Martin welcome back to fresh AIR eleven returning her thank you I thank you very much I'd like you to open with a reading from the beginning of the book and we've we've edited the slightly to make it crystal a little shorter for the broadcast great be happy to I did stand up comedy for eighteen years ten of those years were spent learning for years were spent refining and for years were spent in wild success I was seeking comic originality and fame fell on me as a by product the course was more plodding than her ROIC I did not strive valiantly against doubters but took incremental steps started with a few intuitive leaps I was not naturally talented I didn't sing dance or act the working around that minor detail made me inventive I was not self destructive though I almost destroyed myself in the end I turned away from stand up with the tired swivel of my head and never looked back until now a few years ago I began researching and recalling the details of this crucial part of my professional life which inevitably touches upon my personal life and was reminded why I did stand up and why I walked away in a sense this book is not an autobiography but a biography because I am writing about someone I used to know yes these events are true yet sometimes they seem to have happened to someone else and I often felt like a curious onlooker or someone trying to remember a dream I ignored my stand up career for twenty five years but now having finished this memoir I view this time with surprising warmth one can have it turns out an affection for the war years thanks for reading that that Steve Martin reading from his memoir born standing up which has just been published in paperback yeah I guess I didn't realize how much you closed the door on your comedy years how much there was like a before and after it ended you were done and that was it right I I I'm it was about nineteen eighty one I still had a few obligations left but I knew that hi I could not continue but I guess I could have continued if I had nothing to go to but I did have something to go to which was movies and you know the act had become so known that in order to go back I would have had to create an entirely new show and I wasn't up to it especially when the opportunity for movies and writing movies came around why would you have to create an entirely new show well like I say the the the act was really it there is a passage in the book which I caught because it was so hard to explain but the act essentially besides all the jokes and bits and everything was conceptual and once the concept was understood there was nothing more to develop it's like saying painting the same blank canvas over and over and over and over and over once the concept is no you don't see the need to see to that and that was in the back of my head that I was really done artistically with with what I had created or pastiche to you know in the reading that you just did you describe yourself as not being naturally talented did you think of yourself as naturally funny I'm I didn't didn't think of myself in that way no although I I just love to comedy I I was raised with laurel and hardy and I Love Lucy Anne and Jerry Lewis and I just loved it and I had a friend in high school and we would just laugh all day and put on skits and you know it's the Andy Kaufman thing over to Marty short thing where you're performing in your bedroom for yourself and I I loved magic and so I would practice my magic tricks in front of a mirror for hours and hours and hours because I was told that you must practice you must practice and never present a trip before it's ready but I was just inclined toward show business but I didn't know what I just like being on stage you got your start working in Disneyland you were living in southern California and when you were ten you were selling guidebooks there then you later work for magic shop demonstrating magic tricks and I get the sense from your memoir that demonstrating those magic tricks you know hours a day and really getting them getting them down because you're doing them so much that that gave you a sense that performance required a great deal of craft that even comedy wasn't just a question of going out on stage and saying funny things that there was enormous amounts of work and practice and thought that would have to go into it well that that idea of that that you really had to work at this stuff didn't necessarily come from Disneyland it I I mean I think yes and in terms of presenting a trick but having having it so well honed in your mind was really giving me a sense of security it was I don't want to go out there half baked and you know you learn that through the years you know you're you do a magic show with a friend and you rehearse it a couple of times and yes every all the timing has to be exactly perfect but while you're out there it's it's a different world it's not your mirror you have to make on the spot adjustments but that's just you know whatever entertainer does actually working at the magic shop really gave me a sense of comedy because it was all the jokes we did the tricks but we have all these jokes I had a friend Jim Barlow who you know he he was the the guy I worked with there but he had patter worked out you know it he would go to customers and say Medicare money I mean help you not and you know call them suckers it was really funny and and kind of friendly rude what was your patter I just took all of Jim's patter I'm I'm trying to think of other ones yeah I said it would just it would somebody would buy something it would say and because you are hundred customer today you get a free paperback it's a little silly things like that but Disneyland I'm fifteen right here at early act was a combination of banjo playing juggling magic tricks and comedy and some of that stating your later at two but it sounds like a vaudeville act yes I was very interested involved it was the only sort of discipline that was a five minute act on stage which is what I really enjoyed ins and saw myself doing and I bought books on it I went to the Long Beach pike which was off the carnival fair you know four is really a place for drunken sailors to get tattoos but there was also side shows is very interested in that but you know there is these are all in there these are short acts there was one of the employees at Disneyland that I worked with was named Steve Stewart and he worked in vaudeville and he did a sack for me one day on the floor of the magic shop and I had a couple of great gags one was that I actually used and I asked him if I could use them because I was very strict about using any material that wasn't mine or that that was taken from somebody else let's put it this way I became strict wasn't strict at first there is one trick that one joke that Dave steward did where he said are not yet a glove white glove in his hand the magicians glove any he said and now the glove into dove trick and he threw it into the air and then it hit the floor and he just looked at it and consent and set up for my next trick he went on and it was the first time I saw comedy created out of nothing of nothing happening and I Glaum don to that wait wait wait you're doing I think is not only making comedy out of nothing but making comedy out of people's expectations which you were going to fail to fulfill well yes exactly and I I really started that when I became a semi professional meaning I was working the local folk music clubs going around either working for free or for a week and I quickly decided that you know the material was you know good or weak or whatever and I decided whatever it was I was going to pretend like it was fantastic and how great am I how great is what you're seeing and I think that's what grizzly hunting it's a tune him too because they couldn't believe that someone actually was that confident

In his work the performances in total ran for the length of an average broadway musical. But we're much better than average as a TV. Show it up close and very personal. These people were singing for the most part in isolation with minimal musical accompaniment and sometimes none at all unless you count the birds and the nearby stream that could be heard as Mandy.

Hanks and Alec Baldwin for being a frequent guest host on Saturday night. Live on your first album. Let's get small. You do a bit about the spotlight and before we actually hear the recording of it. I want you to tell us about the first time you did it. Oh I I just had this I I. When I worked at Disneyland. I worked with a woman named Irene. Who was from boxy? Mississippi Missouri Mississippi and She had an expression that she all the time she said well. Excuse me for living. It was just kind of funny and that always stuck in my head so I thought I think I could use something do something with that and and so I told the spotlight operator said whatever I say. Do not change the spot. I am going to ask you to change the spotlight to blue. Do not change it to blue. I had a friend that night up in the next to the booth John McCain whom I still work with recording a banjo album as a matter of fact and I started telling the spotlight operative change the spot and stage. You're telling him this onstage started telling him and at one point. This is the first time ever I ever did it on stage and at one point he was so convinced that I was sincere. He started to reach to change it and Johnson said No. Don't I don't think he wants it anyway? So this is the bit okay. So let's hear it so this is the spotlight bit and This is Steve Martin. And he has a new memoir. Add on stand behind any of these routines forty years later. But go ahead okay. Here's Steve Martin. Mood lighting on this Like to do a thing. Now that's kind of a departure for me. It's going to be more into these a blue spot or something. Nobody back there. That's okay further. Maybe somebody back there okay I guess you figured closing night. You know what that doesn't make any difference kind of pissed off about this because I'm going on all week by now. Have it under control see. This club has been business about five or six years. It was. I actually the Troubadour at first and then it became the boarding house and you know they still have a lot of hippies working here and I can understand the drug thing so they feel that. It's more important to take the dogs to do a good show for I. I'm really up to here with this It's just a matter that you know I am on state and it's my house hunter. You know what I mean and I come out and I'm giving and I'm giving I'm giving keep giving and I guess more than I make a simple possibly have a blue but I guess the lightning groove usually know a little bit more about show business than I do in business a few years and I think I know what works best. Sorry I I get a little cooperation from the backstage ex. That Steve Martin from his first album. Let's get small now. People seem to be with you throughout this. I mean were there already hip to what you were doing The San Francisco because that was a home base for me and I was really stupid in that. It took me a while to figure out. Oh this act doesn't work everywhere. I I was just reading in book before. We started the passage about the Hubbub Club in Winston Salem North Carolina. Which was a members only Bring your own booze. You know Club that I just died just died so badly I was just rereading I remember one night. I was onstage getting no laughs and a guy said to his date. I don't get any of this really loud and I heard inserted. It actually made me laugh because I didn't either I. At that time I was going so badly. But then I would go to San Francisco and Where the audience was younger and more within more stoned and And it would go great. I took me so long to figure out how it's a different type of audience. I shouldn't be playing these other places. They're they're soul killing to me so the boarding house and the troubadour in La. We'll good in the ice house and different clubs around the country when when you started in comedy it was before the Comedy Club era. So you couldn't play the comedy clubs. Were weren't any but there are a lot of like folk music clubs. Did the fact that you had the Banjo in the act. Give clubs the opportunity or the excuse to hire you. Even though you weren't a conventional musician well looking back I. I never thought of that but I think they. The clubs would hire comedians. They were always the opening act Unless they were big names But you know I. I put the Banjo. I put the magic in to fill time because I didn't have enough comedy material and all that just stayed and Looking back I remember. It was Playing Club in Los Angeles called lead betters and some some very funny people were working the clubs to they weren't comedians. They were in folk groups but they were just funny. And I I did my act and I always closed with a magic Section like a five minute magic little mini magic show and my friend came up and said I got a line for you. I said what he says. Oh I know what you're thinking. This is just another Banjo Magic Act and you know I thought of it that way but looking back that. What was the Banjo doing there by? I like to play the Banjo and I can say it filled time and I could get eventually. I worked up bits with it. Our guest is Steve Martin.

But we only got into the nineteen thirties so today. We're moving out of the thirties and into the nineteen forties. Which of course takes US straight into World War Two and on the show? We've talked a lot about fashion and war as it relates to Europe during World War One and World War Two but less so about the relationship fashion and war in America and it's actually incredibly fascinating because throughout the nineteen thirties. America's changing perception of their homegrown talent was reflected in Ariz- leading fashion magazines. Such as Vogue and Harper's bazaar at both of those magazines began to feature American fashion designers more and more throughout the decade. Elizabeth Haase reflected on this transitory period in American fashion in her book. Fashion is spinach which was published in nineteen thirty eight and in it. She writes quote in the late twenties ninety percent of the drawings and photographs. Where the work? A prison couturiers and. She's talking about Vogue and Harper's bazaar and then she says many pages and both magazines are now devoted to close created in America for American Life. The outbreak of World War Two and nineteen thirty nine mark significant shift in the fate of American designers who having continued to operate in the shadow of Paris throughout the nineteen thirties. Were suddenly left to stand all on their own and during the German occupation of Paris from June nineteen forty to August nineteen forty four. Many of the leading French couture houses were forced to close and those that did remain open did so under severely limited operations and some pretty severe restrictions as well right and for those of our listeners. Who might not have heard? April actually did a fantastic interview on stuff. You Mr History class which we featured a couple months ago so check it out if you want to learn more about fashion world war two so for the French fashion industry. This meant that communication with America during World War Two. It meant that one of their most important export markets was almost entirely broken and in one thousand nine hundred one after American designers and manufacturers presented promising fall and spring collections New York Times fashion journalist Virginia Pope well. She declared Murck City to be the fashion center of the world and AIRCON designers may have come into their own during the war but they did so under restriction and regulation beginning in nineteen forty two American fashion designers had to grapple with restrictions imposed by regulation l eighty five which were government imposed sanctions at severely limited. Just what designers could and could not produce the purpose of l. eighty-five was to conserve materials. Needed for the war effort and this included fabrics such as silk cotton wool. Leather Rubber Nylon. So you know pretty much. Every material that you need to make clothing and footwear and the regulations thus restricted just. How much material could be used in the making of new garments so we had campaign such as make-do-and-mend which encouraged people to avoid shopping altogether by mending their old clothes. Something we of course support very much today. L. eighty-five essentially challenge the very nature of the fashion industry itself. As we all know depends on the production of new seasonal clothing styles to stimulate consumerism and as we establish last episode Hollywood films while they were actively complacent and encouraging fashion consumption throughout the nineteen thirties and costume designers like their fashion designer. Counterparts were not exempt from L. Eighty five regulations during the war in an eighteen. Forty four article in the New York Times renowned Hollywood costume designer. Edith head called L. Eighty five quote. The greatest boone ever came to fashion designers in Hollywood so it would appear casts that in the nineteen forties costume designers still considered themselves as fashion designers. And she goes on to say about eighty-five quote. It vanished super luxury and brought us all down to Earth. Today we create sensible styles for women the kind that they can actually wear and she goes on to say how. Well I remember the day when we would swirl Fox skins around the hem of a secretary address or wipe satin uniform on a trained nurse. Now we hold to stark realism and by this time had been the head designer at paramount. For seven years she had taken over for her predecessor. Travis Banton in nineteen thirty seven and head like baton began her career in film working with Howard greer in the nineteen twenties as a costume illustrator before climbing the ranks and indeed head is certainly one of the most prolific and fame designers from the Hollywood golden age. Numerous books have been written about this prolific designer who April has eight Academy Awards for best costume design and wait for it. She has four hundred and forty four credits. On that's intense. She worked for almost sixty years in the film industry so she had an incredible career her first credit it dates to nineteen twenty five and her last film is dead. Men Don't wear plaid with Steve Martin. That released after her death in nineteen eighty two so she died in one thousand nine hundred. One at the age of eighty. Three head is quoted and Margaret Bailey's nineteen eighty-two book those Glorious Glamour Years as saying quote. I do not consider a motion picture costume designer necessarily a fashion creator because we do the script tells us to if we do a period piece then we recreate fashion. That was done before. And if we have a character role we do character close. It is only by the accident of a script that calls for fashion an actress that can wear fashion that some of the beautiful clothes will emerge. I don't consider myself a designer in the sense of fashion designer. I am a motion picture costume designer. So just how did head go from identifying as a fashion designer in Hollywood and the nineteen forties to firmly distinguishing herself as a costume designer by the end of her career? I love this answer. You pro because it actually lies with the advent of yours new-look which is a little unexpected as many of us know nineteen forty seven witnessed this dramatic and sudden change in fashion. Thanks to the unprecedented success of Christiane Yours Premier collection and he introduced dresses with nipped in ways. Those padded hips and full long skirts and they stood in direct contrast to the war regulated fashions of years prior which is why so many people loved them. Unfortunately for the many films released the year that this change took place. The costumes were immediately glaringly out of fashion again. Dino Dior's new look was significant reminder. That though film cost you may be perceived and interpreted as fashion it will never be able to truly contend with the whims and follies of contemporary trends. And Edith. Had designed costumes for eleven films that were released in nineteen forty seven so to say that she was affected is a bit of an understatement. Here and looking on this period for the book. Edith head's Hollywood edith reflected quote. I learned my lesson. The hard way just offered Dior brought out the new look every film I had done in the past few months. Looked like something from the bread lines with each screening. I vowed that I would never get caught by fashion trend again and became a confirmed fence sitter. Although despite her weariness of fashion trends did not keep her designs from apparently sparking them as was the case with address she designed for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun which was a nineteen fifty film in a nineteen seventy-eight article for the American Film Journal. Edith wrote my dress for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun was taken up by manufacturer of debutante Party dresses. Someone at paramount wants counted at a party thirty seven Elizabeth Taylor's dancing. All studio designers have created something that influences fashion. But a good costume designer. Shouldn't try to influence style though. Naturally he hopes to hit upon something that many people will like

He's a popular adjunct professor of storytelling at Georgetown University. His new book out this year is called. Non Obvious Mega trends real heat. Welcome back to the show thank you. It's always awesome to talk to you. It's been three and a half years. I looked it up. I know I can't believe leave it. I miss a lot of trends so every year you publish a book with the last nine years you published book on Non Obvious Trends but this year you say this is not Mba mega trends and visited last one. Why are you stopping after it selling so much? Well I think one reason is because I wanted to WHO Head out on top style like one of the big reasons so It was it was kind of time. You know it's been a decade. I've been working on this project for After ten years and every year I do neutra and predictions and it felt like twenty twenty was kind of a significant moment in all of our lives right. If we're doing things differently we're thinking about the world differently. Were kind of projecting forward. It was sort of a perfect time for me to think about how to write this a little bit differently. I'd say twenty twenty and last thing I turned around it was like the year. Two thousand is just crazy the on line that said Twenty twenty was twenty years ago but nineteen eighty was twenty years ago. Exactly exactly so I want to call it a couple of your mega trends. The one you talk about his `gendering you say that traditional gender divisions are replaced with more fluid understanding of gender identity forcing a reevaluation. How we see one another I think for those who are of my generation which is really you know the boomers? We have a hard time with this thing called engendering. Why isn't important in business? Gender used to be this pretty simple Sort of answer to a question right. It was either this or that. It was the second question or the question we asked on a form And and it straightforward and now it's become kind of a statement for a lot of people This is how I wanted to be seen in the world and so you know we we get hung up a lot on this idea of gender and I don't understand understand it and it seems kinda strange and thinking about it but if if we put it in terms of identity as in we all just want to be understood and addressed in the way that we see ourselves you know that makes sense wants to people like I get that you know and so I think for small business owners and for any of us one of the things that we need to think about is are we unintentionally driving people away by just assuming that they fit into the boxers that we put them in so is it another F- for small businesses. We think of as a another way to define persona a buyer's persona and now gender becomes a flower our or a non gender and becomes a factor. Yeah I mean that is that is one piece of it you know. It's the customer personas but the other is just these kind of Unintentional things we might do drive someone away right. I mean. How important is it really for you to ask that sort of question for example In an interaction right. I mean depending on what you're selling you may not necessarily need to know that like if somebody's interested in what you have to sell and you have a great product or you have a great service and you're trying to get in front of somebody buddy like don't lose their attention because you're unintentionally offending them. I thought it was really interesting when I think this with your lift or Uber where you go on and you can set your preferred pronouns so again that is more personalized service and the driver doesn't insult someone unintentionally. Yeah this basic sailed right. I mean anybody who's he's gone through. Sales trading is like oh address customer by name like asking their name and and use their name because everyone loves hearing their name and I think this is a reflection of that too like people want to be addressed with correct Pronoun and yeah. I've been getting emails from people who in their email signature says my preferred pronoun is and they tell you right and I know a lot of a lot of people say yeah well I just don't get it. I'm thinking to myself. It's not for you to get. It's the way they want to be identified and And I think that that that is a great is a great point right. I mean I I think we do kind of get hung up on this. I don't get it I don't understand it You don't have to necessarily understand if someone says my name is so and so you. You don't always know how to pronounce it right. So you ask you do your best and you move on right absolutely well. megatrend number three talk about instant knowledge as as we consume bite-size is knowledge on demand we benefit Hillary more quickly but risk for getting the value of mastery and wisdom. This scenario that I'm really concerned about that. People want instant knowledge but no one's is willing to go deep. has that really affect us. I think there's a couple of ways I mean it's A. It's a great example of a mega trend that it isn't inherently positive or negative. I mean look if I can go onto youtube and I can learn how to fix a leak in my toilet myself like that's awesome. I mean that's great. That's good for everybody What's bad is if all we have is that type type of knowledge and no one ever believes that? It's worth spending that extra time to become a master to become an expert. So how does it affect us in business as we're trying to attract customs that's one of the biggest things one of the biggest tenants of content marketing. You know which I know you talk about. Is We want to educate our customers. Because we're the ones providing the Education Gatien. We're building trust and building credibility and I think this fits perfectly into that because when people want instant knowledge like who do they get it from right. And if you've got for example a financial advisory refer and you're trying to educate your client what they should do with retirement and they're going online to watching videos from someone else. Educating them you know what are they gonNA think right. They're gonNA start thinking well. Why isn't the financial advisor? Educating me why do I feel dumb when I walk into that meeting with my adviser and I don't feel dumb after these videos. Maybe I should make a change. Do you think there's still a place to help people with mastering wisdom because there are some people in Emily that always want to go deeper. Of course yeah I mean I think that that the nice thing about instant knowledge. It's it can be a gateway to mastery and wisdom. Look I can go online and I can watch An acting class with Henry Winkler you know or I can learn how to play the Banjo. Which Steve Martin and those was a great man I'm GonNa but am? I going to be a professional banjo player. Maybe not but that's okay because I can start with that and if I do find something that I love something that I'm passionate about then I'll spend the time because because the thing with mastery and wisdom is for a lot of people we become masters and experts in the things we love it and that's not going to change because that's a human

Because when I I used to own one thousand nine hundred ninety three Ford Falcon. It didn't have any seat belts in it because they weren't required at the Time Warner and drive it. I need to have seat belt so I go online. I'm thinking how am I going to solve these seatbelts. I wonder if anybody's nobody's ever done it. And of course there was probably six places where you could watch videos of install belt nine hundred sixty three or four falcon. It's like who would've known Yup because the thing about Expertise is and when we learn about things from people like that. They've become an expert because they're passionate about it and one of the things they WANNA do. They WANNA share that expertise Jason. That's really cool that we have instant access to that. I love your megatrend number four. You call revivalism overwhelmed by technology. Complexity people seek out a simpler experienced. I often established and remember more trustworthy. Time that's kind of like a complex statement. I think some people are looking for a place that is simpler but wasn't really more trustworthy the time or just only a couple of sources who were trusted. I think maybe a little of both And I think maybe we remember the past a little more romantically than and we should. But I think that revival isn't was a really interesting one because what it meant to me. And the implication for any small business was sometimes this thing that we consider to be bad this word that we consider it to be bad which has downgraded actually might be good because a lot of times what we think about when we think about downgrade is that it's less optimal but a downgraded experience for example is something that maybe is more humid. I mean there was a great story that I wrote about a grocery brand in the UK the created. Are
The Life of Mike Nichols
"Ask Carter and Sam Kashmir join us now they wrote together an oral history of Mike Nichols it's called life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred and fifty of his closest friends Sam Ash. Thanks for being here. Just thanks for having US thank you. What was was the genesis of this project? Well after Mike's Death I was at Vanity Fair and wanted to do an oral history as much as we can get away with the magazine and ask had worked as a PA.. With Mike. And I knew him mm somewhat and so I thought it best to join forces and so we did this for the magazine originally and it was so interesting and there was so much material that it just kind of presented itself as a book kind of instantly. As soon as we saw together in the magazine they must have been painful to have to cut. Had it down to magazine size well. The piece was originally assigned at six thousand. Words ran at eleven thousand and still not a word practically about his theater career hear about his time at the compass. Players is a founding member of Improv. I mean there's so much still on the table Ash you're very lucky person having worked as the PA.. What did you work on? I worked on Charlie Wilson's war. That was my first job out of college. I was so upset on hangs Julia Roberts. What was that often? Yes Oh right. Of course. It was a big movie so very often. You felt very distant from where the the real real action was taking place but still. I really feel blessed who've been able to be as close as I was. So you mentioned Charlie. Wilson's war my immediate reaction. Shen is Oh my God. That's Mike Nichols. Also the thing that I think people don't even fully appreciate now is just how incredibly accomplished. He was and for so long so if we could just kind of begin with his I think I real fame fame was with Nichols and may but before we go into each of those stop. Just take us through because I think people may be associated him with the graduate and a couple of other major projects. But let's just list some some of them so people have a sense. Well there was the great success of the Nichols. and May Elaine. May and Mike Nichols as a comedy team. which kind of transformed formed Comedy really and Mike as Director. He and Neil Simon joined forces and he really kind of in a way. Reinvented invented Simon. For Neil Simon. You know with barefoot in the park and the odd couple and as of film director his first film was the Richard Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor. Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf which frank rich other people believed to be the maybe the best reputation of a of a stage play for film ever the graduate which was second film his second film shocking. JFK transformative you know and Oscar worthy. And then there's all all the stage work Tom Stoppard's the real thing David Raves hurly-burly streamers. Yeah camelot and S- Pamela camelot idle. I mean it's kind of prodian extraordinary range of of gifts that that he I mean. He Directs Spam Lot. I I think two years after doing angels in America for HBO. I mean that's range. I don't WanNa go too much into his early life by. I think it's important to point out that this was a person who arrived here. Didn't speak English. Not as first language goes to the University of Chicago right he meets Elaine. May let's start there. What was it that made that pairing so extraordinary? What did they do? You said that they revolutionized comedy Elaine may was the dangerous genius that entered Mike Nichols life and and changed him she was kind of a combustion engine and he was the steering wheel a little bit. Steve Martin told us the first time. When you listen to those records those bits or you know the sketches? which is he said that the that I heard irony brock kind of modernity to comics situations and things that comedians did not go? Nya such as the cost of funerals was is the time of Jessica Mitford the the American way of death. And you know I mean these are weighty subjects adultery a- adultery right the previous generation of comics from the fifties where people who came from Vaudeville and the Borscht Belt Nichols and may had a theater background around. And you know both the classical repertory but also as Improv actors and by the way they're also both at analysis and brought a level of psychological acuity to comedy that really hasn't been seen before let's just a clip of them from that period some day Arthur. You'll get married and you'll have suit of your own and honey when you do. I only pray that they make us suffer the way you. That's all I pray to mothers. Okay mom thanks for calling you very sarcastic. I'm doing my best now. You call me on on the telephone I me. I'm sorry I'm sorry that bothered you and look I didn't make you feel bad. Are you kidding I feel awful. Oh honey if I could believe that I'd be the happiest mother it's true. What do you think I feel crummy Arthur honey? Why don't you call me sweetheart? That's the one bit. That's kind of in a way close to auto biography at least for Mike that was sort of his mother in a way and and he had a difficult very difficult relationship with her. Are you know after the death of his physician. Father they were really plunged into poverty into serious poverty in in New York. He I used to have to go in the olden days to the Museum of TV and radio to watch these old clips. But now I I'm imagining that. You can see all of this on Youtube. Yeah there's a lot of great stuff and Youtube I encourage people to also look up there The award for total mediocrity that they did at the Emmys when you're in the nineteen fifties so that's just breathtaking. I just actually making fun of their own mirror. You know I mean they're making fun of show business with a successful right away. They were both part of this. Very heavy kind of avant-garde guard group called the compensator in Chicago and the two of them just clicked as their manager. Jack rollins later said there. They were like ham and eggs. They were a local will hit first then they came to New York. He signed them up his clients started booking them at local nightclubs and they were hit right away and then they started going non Jackpot and omnibus and they were hit nationally. So yeah it was. It was really just like that. It was that quick. How does it get from that to? Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf well well they had a great success Nichols and may on Broadway at the Golden Theatre was an evening with Nichols in May ostensibly directed by Arthur Penn.. You know but not really and Elaine was just sort of tired of doing it and in a way was the comedic version of of the Beatles. Breaking up people were just. I just chop fall in. You know it's tragic. Yes yes yeah. It was kind of a loss in a way They would wind up working together. Other eventually you know as a screenwriter and director but but Mike it kind of put him in in the wilderness for a while He was really at see if we rely on a little bit. When he's got that evening on Broadway with a lame the theater? They were in shared an alley with a theater where her camelot was on stage with Richard Burton and they would kind of hang out after after the show and that's how he kind of got to know him and it was. It's essentially through that meeting Richard in that alley and threw him Liz. They were the ones who hired for Virginia Woolf. When you think about the collaborators he had the people he got to work with you mentioned Arthur panel the you know lately Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor Dustin in Hoffman Jewels pfeiffer on carnal knowledge? It's just you know on and on Meryl Streep the biggest names and your subtitle is is Mike Nichols as remembered by hundred and fifty of his closest friends. Did He. Frequently form friendships during these professional collaborations was. He's one of those the people that everybody felt like they knew. And we're close to make exactly this actors and and many was writers really kind of fell in love with him. I mean we could have called the book seduced by Mike Nichols you know Natalie. Portman really wept recalling. Her work with Mike Sue now. Yeah and that was much later and the closer yes. Yes but also they did stage work together so they were totally devoted to him. I I mean Tom Stoppard. For example said I think his advice memorial you know he thought to himself who is there to to write for he so he was kind of an Avatar to all of these. She's tremendously gifted complicated. People and the friendships were very deep. And Very Real Maureen Dowd. Your colleagues said that he was a null coward figure with the Jersey Kaczynski past and unlike a lot of other people who had a really horrible childhoods he did not kind of wear it on his sleeve and he we've talked about it and didn't particularly want to spend a lot of time thinking about it and I I mean I think this is kind of the key to his career. Longevity Eddie is that he was. Somebody really always wanted to be living in the moment. And kind of looking forward to the next project even up until the end of his life when he had several things that were in progress including masterclass terrence. McNally's play that he was gonNA adapt for. HBO With Meryl Streep. Yeah I mean in a way. Our title is taken from a a model of Mike's life isn't everything but it's kind of a misnomer because it was everything to him. You know in a way I mean he could be difficult to and and some of the people in the booker occur quite open about yes. That Emma Thompson is one right exactly Thompson who who adored him. You know said we're not talking about some saint here so you know and in fact Mike toward the end of his life felt that he had been cruel to people and had betrayed others. You know but he did develop a music also about someone who sort of as much of a genius as he was you know he was also complicated difficult cat and felt like there were people to apologize to. Some people presumably wouldn't talk to you Elaine. May of course wouldn't what about Diane Sawyer and were there other people who you pursued and just said you know what no now. We did approach. Diane we wouldn't have done this actually without her been addiction you know and she gave us the same response that initially initially Sam Beckett gave to digital bear you know which is. I'm not going to stop you but I'm also not going to help you all that much. But when push came to shove and we needed the people such as Meryl Streep she was helpful behind the scenes and Elaine. She did. Give us a blurb. Although we didn't use it and the blurb facetiously officiously said well I I would tell you all I know. But they're going to pay me millions of dollars to write my memoirs something. You'll never do you know. She meant it as kind of a joke before before we go one final question what do you each of you. Thank was Nicholas's greatest work and then also so perhaps a personal favourite may be less known or just something new especially leaden. And why. Let's start with you ash. I would say probably the graduate. It's not the most original choice but I just have seen the movie so many times and I think that it it just has held up so much better than a lot of other youth movies of the time that it was sort of lumped in with that plus the the comedy albums is sort of where my original enthusiasm for him started. But you know I I think catch twenty. Two for example is a movie that has not really gotten. It's do. I think it's actually kind of a brilliant movie that was overshadowed by Mash at the time though it is I see no reason why the existence of Mash prevent people from enjoying it today not an easy novel to adapt to know and but I think him and Buck Henry and we did a credible job adapting it. Sam will I mean. It's so hard to choose. My mother would choose working girl in or Silkwood you know an but are you. Seeing your mother would be wrong. My mother never wrong But for me it's you know the stage work is kind and of extraordinary. I mean the Philip Seymour. Hoffman death of a salesman at the end of life using that was really just is an extraordinary unearth accomplishment. Really it brought him Full Circle Because that streetcar with the two original productions that changed his life really all right. I'm hoping that this interview. If nothing else forces everyone to go to youtube everyone to go and stream every single thing that Mike Nichols did that was available. He was such an incredible credible talent ash. Carter Sam cash. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you so much thank your new book is called. Life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred

"I've just really absolutely pleased to be with you can I start with a question, you probably have gotten a lot. Although I have never asked you this question. I don't think how difficult has it been the confusion between Steve Martin you and the actor comedian how much how much do you have do you get his mail. Well, it depends on how much he's in the news with a movie or so forth at I can recall when I was in the DA's office here tells county, and that's back when Steve Martin was really first on the scene, and when I would get introduced. You know to the jury panel or to the court or whatever more often, not, you know, smiles at breakout among the people in the courtroom just by saying my with slip. Did you feel some pressure to be funny? Well, I tell you what I did one Christmas party. My secretary gave me one of those eras, you know, east or that Aaron is coming out with and so she gave me that is my Christmas gift, and I was going down to the courtroom later that afternoon in one of my colleagues set of a former DA was on the bench and said, I will dare you to go down to that courtroom today with that era in your. And and and even though the judge what's a colleague and probably would have taken it. Well, I chickened out at the very last moment. I think it's probably wise. Youngest young assistant back then I did not want tales told about taking the court lesson seriously. So. As you probably set the scene a little bit for how we know each other. And that was when a few years ago when I was still the US attorney in the southern district of New York, my office joined a lawsuit against the city of New York and the department of corrections with respect to the use of force against adolescence at Rikers island, which is a jail complex that I think is of some notoriety around the country, but it's a jail complex in New York City in his part of the settlement and the consent decree ordered by the court. The court imposed a monitor if you don't mind being called someone who was imposed on someone else. Right. A monitor on Rikers island to make sure that they were going to be meeting. You know, the milestones that they were supposed to be meeting in the improvements and to see if there were ways to bring down. The cycle of violence at Rikers island, which is pretty extreme. In remains a big problem, which will get into later, and then I had the pleasure of meeting you and your team and sitting down every once in a while on a regular basis to talk about how we might make Rikers island better. And how we might think about prison, and you are really one of the people who caused me to think more deeply than I ever had before about what it means to have a humane prison system, and humane jail system. And so before I do anything else, I will wax poetic about your service, which is not something I usually do about guests, but you've spent how many how many decades now on the issue of prisons. I'm in my forty six year working in the prison jail confinement setting. So that's a longtime. You've done it as as a correction officer you've done as a legal officer. You've done it as an outside sort of monitor expert, which is in many ways, thankless work..

And he's really feedings really hurt by maybe unsurprisingly, maybe I screened it out because I had similar experiences with my dad, he didn't write scathing reviews, but he made it clear that he didn't really like why did did he? Yeah. He thought it was embarrassing.

Religiously and give me feedback, and he's always been very supportive, and almost take it as a kind of vote of confidence that he's at the point where he doesn't feel obliged to watch on them. You know? Yeah. Because that's how I feel about his books quite honestly, what keeping up with my dad's books. He comes out with at least one a year. It would be a full-time job. You wouldn't have time to read anything else. If you read. On my dad's, folks. Yeah. Right. God he's he's up above fifty books. He might be more than sixty and not short. Have you ever had a discussion with him about writing and has given you tips like practical tips, he often I have to take it in small doses. Because he loves to give advice, and it's always been his dream that I would be a writer really more than anything more than a TV maker. So he it's almost like the warriors that you take your finger out of the dyke and say, yeah, okay. Don't have you got any advice. And then you're overwhelmed by flood of paralyzing and slightly emasculating cascade wisdom, but you know, what I mean? And I didn't when I wrote my first book, I actually saw Batten down the hatches and said, you know, what data think I'm going to try and do this without help. And that actually I think it was maybe the right thing to do. But might also have been my loss. Volunteered himself five or six times.
