"Was upset or disappointed that you can have. I wasn't involved though then. I realized a few years ago. Stand up in the eighties. One book you know working six nights doing ten shows that was going up verse. Yes yeah and and just pounding it out. Show after show after show. And that's why a lotta guys are my generation. We can really do a good job because we had drummed into us. Okay because we did so many shows. And i don't mean interrupt rospa you all were part we both you on the entertainer side and me on the producer side caught. That wave right right. Kicked off seventy nine eighty. When i open laughs unlimited. It was the twelfth club in the country. Fulltime comedy club and by five years later they felt like it was on every street corner but we caught the beginning of that wave. And if you were performing by nineteen seventy nine and getting on stage. You were definitely part of that. Initial wave working with people like leno on it and all the guys two things number one i can. I've looked at what happened at that time. And all the guys moved to la because you know the it seemed like the gold rush. Okay being like the because you know the gold rush people around the country. We're hearing that there was gold and like eighteen. Forty nine out in california has dropped everything to go out and try. Try their luck at getting. Some of that goal thing happened like in the mid mid to late seventies. There were rumblings in this country that something was going on. And and all these people like myself and like bob sagging you know you can. You can go through the whole list of the people who who came out of that time they we all gravitated either new york or locked the angeles and that would that was our gold rush. I was just going to say and you had the unique opportunity being an east coast guy. You were working the improv both in new york and la you were working clubs elliott ephron cisco go ahead. No i wasn't. I was not in new york city. Yeah okay. I had gone to chicago not go to new york city from there. I went to san francisco a little bit. I was out in. La and. i didn't go to new york to perform regularly until two thousand that i actually went there in the middle. I actually went there twenty years. I came to this area. Twenty years ago to re- to reinvigorate my career. I was working right. But you're i thought. I waits for from the east so you started off as a west coast comic and then switched over born and raised my younger years in a small town in western new york state. Nothing like i was in florida for a number of years. I was but i was never a new york city garlic and i remember being in l. a. at the comedy store around nineteen eighty one. These new york act started to come out when they were fully formed. Here i was trying to figure out how to do this shit. And when some seinfeld coming out fully formed just just pre prepared or george george. Wallace larry miller our. If there was there was a whole group of them that came out from new york all in that same year and they all had huge success. But as you mentioned they came out having already somewhat honed at least the beginning of their sets their material on the rough stages in new york and came to l. a. a somewhat already vested and you were coming up from sam cisco in la for more just getting started at that time my attitude was. I'm going to have to get to get good someplace. And wherever i get good. If i get out to l. a. it's gonna take me another year two years working in the l. a. So i said i might as well go to la and work on getting good there. Of course. I already had like attendant of that okay. I had an act was good enough to get me into the semi-finals the san francisco comedy competition. I had an act. It was good enough. That when freeman saw me he took me right over to greg. Book made me a regular day me spot. I enacted was good enough. That i could kill at the comedy store and when mitzi called me over she said don't let that fool you. You're not funny jamil. Brutal see was brutal. I haven't heard quite like that. I bought while he told to thinks he poked dennis miller he didn't pass and she goes. You should wear a sweater. That was comedy. Dennis miller and to the great control of david straw. But david is auditioned for you know. Would chuck would did a great you know till and she goes up and he tells the story he goes She said we don't we don't use products and then he said he goes. I go outside and mending my situation of standing in front of the comedy store. And i looked to my right and there is a a u. Haul truck and gary mule deer is cooling garbage hand pool of probes out of the u. Haul that take into the comedy store to perform. I tell comics. I work with today. Because i teach a class in in new york that we have no control of. Who's gonna like our job. The best we can. And i always say go where the sun is shining. Oh turn to where the sunshine go. Where the love is you know. Whatever supposed to happen will happen. The guys who are miserable are the ones who say to themselves. That i have to be have to get some Work at the comic strip happening working at the comedy or and when they don't get they become obsessed with it and it just it just wears them out. But you're also bring up a good point about how mitzi on the wave of the wind could change on what she liked and didn't like i mean dennis miller would not have been any funnier or less funny with or without a sweater. I mean it was. That was just an obtuse thing to mention she. Also you know saying that. She didn't like prop comics. Well she might not have when it was straw smith but that she did when it was meal dare and y- was again her flipping dentist. Rosman was one of the best french request we had come through. The club and gary mule deer was very funny as well but for me as a producer and of course. Mitzi was much much more powerful in in and made careers but to be. I've always heard how harsh she could be an how her judgements control So so easily. You know Minute to minute. I've been told i got nowhere some i you know i i got married to my wife on the main stage of the comedy store and i have covered by two on the town and Entertainment tonight it was it. Was you know it was a thing down there. You had been in her good graces to let you do that. That's pretty cool. Yeah she said that she would never be disingenuous with somebody if she didn't see it she didn't want to encourage somebody who didn't have it. I could who didn't have what she didn't have what she thought. I could see that. I did a lap open. Mics and i would give advice and i rarely but sometimes told somebody you know. This isn't just you know maybe your thing but normally it would be. It wouldn't be about what to wear but it would be about Presentation material learning the art of interacting with the audience. Or pausing at the right time i mean. It was technique as opposed to Judgment calls on their future was just trying to help them to get through. That set you know or what it might take them to the next sentence. Help him what happens. Does these folks after it had epilepsy. Five six hundred apps and if they feel obligated to say something if they feel about to big some sort of a comment they feel obligated to make some sort of a A criticism in order to justify whatever you.
