It's the bid was on fire when he got into it so he got charge. And i am here with howie mandel so much for joining me. Thank you for having me. I'm thrilled to be anywhere. I don't think we are. I'm actually there but my voice i. Can you describe the room you're in. I feel like it'd be helpful for people to understand the context of what i'm doing. I'm one of the reasons that i'm doing. All these podcasts is because i myself have just launched a new podcast called howie. Mandel does stuff with my lovely daughter jacqueline schultz. So i am in my podcast studio right now this is all my collectibles. And the these are things that i've collected everything from bobby's world Deal or no deal Machine that you can go. See a dave and buster's i also just to the right of me you cannot see and we're going to be talking about today. The actual seats. I performed in front of on the tonight show so when it's not a joke i'll send you pictures. So there's that that is there. These are things that mean. You know not only me but anybody that was anybody performed in front of the seats. They're not reupholstered. And that's where. I let if i have guests on the podcast and they wanna come here in person. That's where they sit. I got my bobby's world things. I have my saint elsewhere. Things here i have. You know. it's just the history of me. And i just come in here and sit and just look around the room and think to myself. Look what i've done what i've done. I think it's a good setting for this type of conversation. So i wanna talk about how you ended up getting on the tonight show and i feel like that story starts with them telling you you're not going to be on the tonight show. It even starts before that. I don't know how many people listening to this You know my personal history with comedy. But well april nineteenth nine thousand nine hundred. Seventy seven to be exact. I went to a comedy club. Called yuk yuks in toronto and i went there out of Looking for something to do because you know still at that time. Disco was all the rage and In like studio fifty. Four and places like that in new york. I was not. I'm not a dancer or a drinker or a club. Goer and i'm not somebody who is athletic or a gambler. I don't have a poker game with a bunch of friends. I didn't even have a bunch of friends. So i went to a comedy club in. It's the first time i saw stand up. Comedy live in toronto and mark breslin. Who's the that was the host. And the proprietor of yuks at the time. And and just so you know yuk yuks is a club that Birth you know jim carey and nor mcdonagh old and a lot of other people came out of that club that you know that our writers directors and even watched rick moranis do stand up on that stage. You know he was a he was a F. m. dj at the time and this is prior to setv and Anyway i was there and they said you know at at midnight on mondays or whatever day it was we'll take amateurs people can get up and the people that are sitting with. You should get up. And i went. Okay okay and that's how i am. You know and i've talked about this before. I have mental health issues. But i always say yes and don't think of ramifications can be dangerous but also it's become my philosophy. I think people over think things so and no aspirations to be a comedian. No aspirations to be on television not to be famous not to be anything. I went that next monday night. And if you had to ask me what the material was going to be didn't have. I didn't prepare much like Doing this today. I didn't prepare anything. So i showed up thinking the joke is going to be. I got one or two friends in the audience or a friend in the audience. And they're gonna go ladies and gentlemen howie mandel. And then i'm gonna walk out and it's gonna be me like i'm not a comedian and they don't know i'm not a comedian. And that's the joke that's the extent. I don't think too far advanced and what happened. Was i'll never forget he. Mark breslin went. Ladies and gentlemen howie mandel and i walk out to a smattering of applause. It's like twelve fifteen nights a smattering of applause. And then that applause dies down. Nobody knows who the hell i am. And i don't i barely know who the hell i am. And i'm standing there with a blinded by the spotlight. And then i looked down and you could see the front row. And there's just people who i don't know gore nor recognized. No should i just people patrons looking up at me like ok okay. Funny boy like you were introduced. We is there anything and for whatever reason that realization became a terror. And i realized what the fuck did i just do. I'm standing here in front of these strangers. And i got filled with Like terror kind of like they describe when a mom finds her child under a car and has the ability that energy that goes through. They can lift the car. I remember feeling like the surge of terror. And i started going. I gotta come up with things. And if i start going okay okay alright. Alright and i'm panicking. I'm actually just really legitimately authentically panicking. And i'm trying so hard to just think of something and when they were giggling at my discomfort. I didn't really understand. Because i was also self conscious and am you know pretty so you start going. What what no really. What would you let. And they start saying things like come on. Don't laugh it's throwing me off please. Don't let funny in itself. It's ironic but it was real and it was in the moment and you know i suffer from ocd. And have my whole life. And i remember putting one of my hands just out of just being uncomfortable in my pocket. And i felt oh shit. I got a rubber glove that i carry. Because i don't want to touch things in in a public restroom so i took a rubber glove out and out of you know just the need to do something and i had nothing i pull it over my head and pull it past my nose. I never i had never done that before. And i start breathing and the fingers going up and down. And i can hear the audience roaring so i just start inflating with my nose. And it blows up and it pops off my head and they. They go into a spontaneous applause. It pops off and i go goodnight. Had the wherewithal to go. This is the timing. Leave them on the big laugh. This is timing and good night. I walk to stage. And i'm sweating and mark is there. I've been on for like two and a half. Maybe three minutes and and mark breslin is there and he goes. That was amazing. Come back tomorrow. And i go for for what he goes..

"I was trying to think of something. They started to giggle and minos energy. And i heard them giggle. And then i would go. What what what. What are you going. And then my whole thing became this this really Contributing nervous young guy who is looking for the and i didn't know what to do with my hands in my pocket and i carried rubber gloves because i didn't wanna touch germs. Okay okay okay. I'll do this. And i hold it over my head for no reason at all. I've never done that before. I started breathing through my nose. The fingers were going up on. The crowd was roaring.

You know which eventually became bobby but it was. Just maybe you know. And i would do those things. And those are things that i did in the back of classrooms. Just because i do it. I originally got that voice from choking on a piece of cake and you know in in my throat like nothing was a plan and then as luck would have it on a separate business trip to l. a. I went out and got in. And i had met mike binder who a writer comedian director He had because he was from detroit. He came played at yuk yuks. I started hanging out at yuck. Yuck and i was happy and going on stage. But not. Because i wanted or even believe that i can ever make a living at this or do this. Just it was like minded weird people who had these odd. Little thoughts shared them with strangers. And for me my analogy is like if you like playing poker and twice a week. He get together with a group of people. And that's my poker game on thursday nights and tuesday nights or you like playing basketball and you have one on one at the y. With your friends. This was my come on nights a week. I'd go over to yuk yuks and do that met comics. Who are coming in from. Over the border like minor. Who was out of detroit and dave klay and i went to california on a business trip. Something not related. I in retail. And i told mike i'm coming out because he knew that he will that he was living there and he said i'll get you on the comedy star and he got me on at the comedy star and it was just about getting on at the comedy store. Just because it'd be fun. I did that on vacation..

Yes I, did all right I. Think I did alright, but but there was also this thing we got to a point where. My father said I just heard about these places called comedy clubs. and. Would you like to go down to YUK YUKS IN TORONTO? and My mother suggested I wear my best polyester suit. Nice and cover my. I was white polyester suit. I was way ahead of the Steve Martin carved nice and. And I went down with my dad and the big, the big routine I did at that point. was imitating the Carol Brunette. was doing all Tim Conway's character. Funny was Acai Jesus now. He was so fast on his feet. Man Right the last time I met him, he was, he was getting up there and man. The Guy was quick, unique very funny, so you're doing the Brunette riff. Yeah, and at Yuk Yuks. They had this thing where if somebody wasn't going over well or wasn't you know? At that certain level of hypnosis they would start playing the theme to Jesus Christ superstar. In crucify him, crucify him, crucify him and Mark Breslin would get on the MIC backstage. Say totally boring now only during totally boring. That guy having that kind of seniors old. and. I didn't go back for two years. I left there that night and I didn't go back for two years. And then I went back and killed it. You know it was good for me and it's good. Those those tanks you do are really good for you I. Guess What you do for the two years prepared. Oh, so you were doing open might elsewhere. No I was just coming up with stuff. No shows coming up with stuff, and I watched the other comics and I and I watched the audience of what they're looking for and. At first I. Guess You just try to fit in and try to fill that? Let me ask you something though around this stuff around like you know the new realizations versus the life that you lived before the realizations. Is that you know? How do you frame you know what you may have once viewed as mental illness. I. I'm assuming that currently. You have a different take on it then you might have had a decade ago and I guess the deeper question is when you started doing comedy like for those two years were you were were? Was Your heart heavy? Now. It was always for me. I created out of a place of joy and out of place of wanting to. Free people from concern Oh my mother. was born out of that, so you know I to make her feel better. It was when she was in pain. I'd get up on her bed. My underwear and be the praying mantis Ri- crazy until she was laughing hysterically and holding her belly and going it hurts right. Yeah, yeah, and and so at a certain point. I realized Oh I could actually do this for the world. I could actually do this for large groups of people. What point was that at three them from concern all right? Okay? Okay, that's that's really work came from. It's a ministry. Yeah, so it was never self medicating. I think it. It became partly that you know are always becomes a way to express those deeper feeling shirt, but I but I. Honestly think it's born in. It's still is borne out of trying to free people from concern. Even if it's taking them, you know head on into the concern. Yeah, so that it dissipates the intensity of it. Yeah, so when you. You, when you went back to Yuk Yuks in you kill. That was the beginning of the career, then yeah, and then I became a featured player at Yuk yuks feature player in the theater of the absurd. And when did you WANNA? Like come to La came to La and met a guy in David. Hall of WHO's Managing Howie Mandel and eighty. Guy Canadian Guy Yeah and he was one of those few guys back then that could see the next level that could see to the next Jag yes and. A lot of people that didn't really see where things could go and. Now can. You can stay in Toronto and do just fine. But. I, mean I get that, but I mean you know you're gonNA, like some people can do all right, and and that just means you get to do all the Yuk yuks twice a year. Yeah I mean there's SETV and others sure kids in the hall and there's some great stuff of course, but I mean as a stand up, though like at the beginning where you really thinking that like stand up was thing. I didn't know I had a dream about being Being an artist that could do a lot of things you know not having boundaries Ohio, and I've always I've always kinda believed that there's a there's no limit to. The areas I could kind of sneak into well. I mean it's clear like the style I the way that you sort of did what you do early on. Was Sort of like you definitely somehow pushed the envelope. Even with familiar things you know even with impressions there. Your approach to them was sort of you know. Kinda got pretty out there. Yeah, I was the man of a thousand faces sure I was rubber face. Yeah, but you're always able to. Even when you did characters, you'll create a different time zone for everybody. Sure? Yeah, well, that's that's the key. It's the basis to one of my my my most serious beliefs in my my strong beliefs in that involvement in immersion in someone else, yes, and in fact in your own work. Yeah, Heaven! He had no. I mean I was. I was in my studio painting in New York one time and. I took a walk for a couple of blocks and I found this wonderful little park where these guys were playing soccer and I felt so free from the painting. Because it involves your heart, your head in your hands it. It takes everything right right. and. I always wondered why was so free and felt so good you for doing it and then I watch. These guys play soccer west is guy chasing the ball and I went. That's it. I I was compelled by that guy who's so involved with getting the ball and that's why all all-sports work. All art works on the same level, and that is presence. Presence is addictive man, and when someone is fully present like Michael Jordan is in the zone. Yeah, it's like it's addictive. Man You cannot you know Meisner? One of his one of the tents of his technique is that. If you are actually interested in what you're doing, you'll be interesting to watch you know, and that's why we watch babies 'cause they discover things for the first time. Sure you know, and that's why we watch it. It Art, that's what's happening. When you look at Davinci. You're seeing his presence on the canvas. Yeah, you know right, and it's addictive. You cannot be compelled by yeah and I. think that's also something about that part of the addiction to live performance as well. Yes, in the moment. Yes, when you have the sense that somebody I mean, we all have plans you know, but when you have the sense that somebody is like kind of discovering their own material. Is They speak the better? I was just watching. Like you know I've been like I've been home. You know and I. I can't go out and do the work you know so. I've been watching you guys I watched his documentary oddly on Rodney the other night, which was great, but I turned on that that that I prior special last night I haven't washed any year or to live in concert and it'll beautiful.

He wasn't about show Biz. You wasn't about the Glitz he was about. Let's connect gap. I'm going to connect yet. Connect with myself right right. I'm GONNA play these characters like they're just. They're happening in front of you right now, and the best actors do that. You know they have to rediscover the part every time they do it. If you ten takes, you have to rediscover it every time. That's the job in the moment in a way. Yes, the job so I when you come to the guy who who manages says, I'm GonNa Make Your Star Kid or what? He says you know we should go to La and do that. I been to La once with.

My Dad was a keen political observer, if not a participant. Whether. It was Pakistan or England or in toback in the province Quebec. Where I was raised, he was very much a civic minded socialists minded often voted for the end EPA, and then finally became liberal in his later years. just because he's like the.

When you ask those again and to me, it wasn't like. It wasn't like a big deal. It's some I. Don't allow like I didn't hold it as like I'm like you know in an ego way of like Oh. You WanNa be on my show. Ever Oh, you're new, obviously a walk on stage and you're you're at the time. You were funny. You know what I mean. He's funny I.

"mark breslin" Discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"Will he fight Jamaal? Charles I mean there just aren't the there at the obvious signature fights out there for Kennel. In the same way. Like Mayweather Pacquiao was kind of out there and even pack Yup Miguel Koto and Margarito like there aren't to me anyway. The obvious big events for no I'd say one name to keep in mind It might even happened before the third Gulf can fight is revving in Chanko he. He wanted to fight deriving Chango When it was would have been for his title back in October and I think Dragon Chango really legitimized himself as a top top guy by the way he fought against glove. Can he lost a very close split decision to Daniel Jacobs but the way he fought beloved and there are people that think that driving. Janko won the fight. It was very close. Could have gone either way. I had to predict. Yeah absolutely yeah so I think he won and I think he showed that he that you get in a dogfight with him. You're going to have a problem and maybe maybe we're talking a lot about the third cannella glove can fight. I would love to see revving Chanko Golovkin maybe even more so than the third glove fight because that fight was so competitive and in my opinion was the fight of the year for two thousand and one thousand nine. I'd love to see it again But to answer your other question about who does Cannella fight. I don't know at this point because there are a lot I'll take a hard pass on. Murata I don't think any of us I will. I don't care how big of an event is in Japan or or anywhere else. I do not want to see that. I've seen Murata lose to low level sea level you know being minus levels middleweights. I do not want to see him fight Canal Alvarez. We know how that ends up. Please don't waste our time with that. I mean especially if Kino's GONNA fight twice a year. Don't waste one of those fights on. Mirada be whatever the third he he would have to be as rocky fielding of the year like the end of the year. And that'd be Kinda Kannelos like thank you for a great year. Thank you for taking on goal often and making this all worth our while in a fight like this but yeah there are some there are some definite. I think if if even if Cannella beats go often beats him. Let's say beaten badly. Hypothetically I'd still be up for Galactica Durban Janko two. That's still you're still talking about you. Guys fairly evenly matched both that kind of the same age ish range in their careers. I I would. I would still WanNa see that no matter what I do too I again i. I would rather have seen that. If he's not going to fight Cannella next. I would rather have seen that in the spring now. He has to make the mandatory and I understand. He's not going to again be stripped of the IBM title. He's already gone through. That once doesn't want that to happen again. So you give him his his mandatory defense but now a two of the three fights that he's had since he signed with the zone. We'll be Steve Rolls and is mandatory defense against an opponent with four knockouts. So you know. Two out of the three fights have kind of been lay ups so you know and he did have trouble with Steve Roles in the second round of that fight where you. Kinda got lit up a little bit so You know let's see while he still has some of his some weather still something of Gennady Golovkin left. Let's see him fight. Top guys yeah these off to be tough fights for the rest of that contract and make the contract Actually worth you know what Kendall told me recently. He said he is willing to fight. The winner of Andrey. Charl like definitely told me that well. He's willing to do it no he. Didn't he didn't tell me that at all but I'm still I'm still hammer that home sub. Just I have two podcasts. The Injury Charles. I mean look We don't know when Charles or android is GonNa get the title fight that that we wanted them to discuss this ad. Nauseam but Yeah but I'd love to see either one of those guys fight fight canal you know. Those are good. Middleweight fights and even at both decided move up. It's it's still good fight. I was talking about the heavyweights deontay wilder Just last month loses and loses badly to Tyson. Fury is a knockout win for fury defining performance of his career. I think a lot of people wondered would wilder exercise the immediate rematch clause. He has done that. That fight penciled in right now for July Eighteenth in Las Vegas your reaction. I guess I to Wilder Exercising. That rematch clause automatically. I mean is it the same situation that Joshua was in with res where he's like you know what I gotta keep control of the belts. It is obviously the biggest money fight for me. The circumstances similar or are there differences. I think they're similar and I wasn't surprised at all that he exercised rematch clause because one he has a lot of pride. And he's not gonNA reach certainly not. GonNa try to go out like that. We'll see what happens in the third but there's a lot of money at stake. And if he were to forget about the guaranteed purse for the next fight if he gave up the the immediate rematch clause. He's giving up control. And then if Tyson fury goes and fights Anthony Joshua and loses. You don't know if you're GONNA get a shot at Anthony Joshua or Tyson fearing wins. You know maybe they fight twice or three times or you're just relinquishing control. That you would have had and it would make absolutely no sense to do that. From a business standpoint. There are a lot of other reasons. Why stepping back and not fighting them immediately. Make sense from a business perspective. You had to do it. Yeah I mean I I. I think you had to do it for those reasons as well. I just I wonder two things one. Is it two quick turnaround after a loss? Like that. I mean Bob Arum but when Bob came out and said that the contract says mid July but maybe we can push it down the line a little bit. I thought all right that makes sense. You probably won't get into the fall anyway when you have football and all the other stuff going on in Fox and ESPN to be promotional vehicles for it not as much in the summertime and then they kind of did a one eighty and said no. It's going to be in the summer in Las Vegas. According to the contract that made me a little less certain about while. There's chances they're still pay no matter what but while there's ability to turn around that fast after such a tough knock. I know it is. What like five months ish ish between the February fight and mid July? But does it feel it all fast to you for him to turn just considering the way he lost and just how. He took a beating in there before. The towel was thrown. I thought the their rematch was actually too fast. Because he fought November twenty third then came back to fight for twenty second there only three months in between so he kind of took a month off. Went right back into camp for this fight. I'm not saying that's the reason he lost. Lord only knows what happened that night. I don't think it was the the outfit. It was referee with Anthony. Durell can we call it a costume? I enjoy calling it a costume. More than but it was like playing game Bingo Book. You would prefer that if the costume really did all kidding aside. Just for argument's sake say that the thing was heavy say weighed forty plus pounds and when he got into the ring and took it off he said Jesus like my legs are gone. For argument's sake say that that was true. He probably should've kept it to himself. Because there's no good could come as as we found out from him saying that. So if that really was part of the reason why he had no legs Just don't say anything and put that in your back pocket. Go Train. Where something much lighter into the ring or or about nothing about throw a towel over your head like Mike. Tyson used to do and just come into the ring. I understand. You WanNa be entertaining You know he was he was doing it as a tribute to black history month. I get all of that but ultimately in his mind anyway. It cost him the heavyweight championship of the world. His undefeated record. So was it worth it. I think a lot of people wondered after that fight would Mark Berlin be fired. He threw in the towel. There's a lot of talk about that. You spoke to wilder About that I think a lot of people wondered J. D. replaced. Sometimes that happens when the head trainer is usually the first guy to go. He's electing to keep everybody in place kind of as we speak. I mean J. D.'s. Is there brillant? Is there right decision for while there do that or would you have suggested doing something else? I'm not a hundred percent. Sold THAT MARK. Zalin will be in his camp in the same capacity that he was before. Would he coordinator as what he did? Tell me less than forty eight hours. After the fight Dante Wilder was that he was going to go on a trip to Africa that he had planned. You know long before the fight he was going to go on this trip with his family. Take some time to think. And when he came back reassess his team and then move forward from there. I don't think J. D.'s will Is going to be replaced anyway? Way that there's too much of a bond there. They've been through too much together. He appreciates and respects Jay too much. I think to replace him. I think he really has a fondness for Mark Breslin. Also but I don't know that he can go into the third fight and let me just preface by saying that. I think mark really did the right thing. He's looking out for the well. Being of US fighter I didn't see any sign whatsoever that the auntie wilder was going to come back from the condition that he was in an unloaded one of those right hands and change the fight but he had specifically told him not to throw in the towel technically being not his chief second. He didn't really have the authority to do that. And the chief second had told him not to do it moments before that. So would you put that guy in your corner again again? Even though he did the right thing I think ultimately if you're deontay wilder would you put him in your corner again? Not Knowing if he's actually going to listen if you're in similar trouble in the next fight. Is he going to throw the towel and again? I don't I don't know the answer to that. So what I think might happen. Assuming brillant thus stay part of the team is that maybe he won't be in the corner. I don't have any inside knowledge on that but I think that might be the way he goes. And maybe add another veteran trainer to the team to give give a fresh set of eyes to what's going on and maybe some more offensive strategy that he was able to defensive strategy even showed in the first second. And that's the interesting question. Who Do you add to that? Mix that that makes any sense. I mean one of the things I thought were Anthony. Joshua was he did decide to replace rob mccracken but he's supplemented mccracken righty brought to new voices. In and by all accounts those voices made an impact on in the fight with with Andy Ruiz. So who while they bring in like? There's any names out there make sense especially when you're saying to wherever you bring in you are not the head trainer. Jd's is still had trainer. You're going to be a guy that helps me get ready for this fight. I'm not saying he's going to hire Freddie Roach or that's the only guy that would have hard but he's an offensive minded coach. Obviously and he was in Tyson furious corner for the first fight. So if you want to start playing some psychological games with Tyson fury. Who's a master added himself? I would hire Freddie Roach because he does have some institutional knowledge about what makes Tyson fury tick. What maybe he doesn't like. And then you could implement that in your strategy for the third fight even if it was more a psychological ploy than anything. I think that's really something that the entree wilder should consider but having said that Chris. I don't think that Info there's five months basically between the second and third fights. I don't think he's GonNa Change Much. Fundamentally between those two fights I think You know it always good to have a new voice in there when things don't go well because maybe they'll notice something that you that his current trainer's not pick up on because they've been with them for so long and they're just seeing the same things all the time but But I wouldn't. He's going to have to fight differently to to win. Of course you have to handle furious pressure differently but is he going to be a new fighter and and you know five months time obviously not one of the Rings Roach addition to everything you said was when he was in fury's camp the first time around one of the things he said publicly. After that I fight was that I would go for the knockout. He's like fury can hurt deontay wilder. I don't know why he wasn't pressing more..
"mark breslin" Discussed on The Kirk Minihane Show
"He's lived the good. Life is ludicrous. It's silly it should not have been in the movie Steven Spielberg I think is a better director than Kirkman hand. I'll admit that I isn't there something to the customer's always right in the uninformed formed viewer. Who's never made a movie before? Their opinion is is worth. I think just equal person movie was made for says I. I mean there's also idiot. Martin Scorsese more movies than we do. Yeah that's fair but we also we know more about the experience of watching. Martin Scorsese movies than Martin. Scorsese's maybe baby and I'd also say like there's something to when you're in a public probably was for six years on this maybe you'll come up for air you'll realize how silly it looks and how many people will tell him this. Missiles Zero Point Zero Point Zero and by the way when this fantasy guy says winning netflix Scorcese making movies. As long as he wants. Yes they do they definitely really do. He has final cut. No question really wanted to make it twelve hours you know. I know that. Because he's three and a half hours. Ami's Martin Scorsese and Netflix is like this is a big prestige. Chance for them. Well no and no doubt is fuel. Berg is always making a war movie for Netflix. Netflix is not gonNA be like you. Know what Steve. Here's the deal two hours to get the fuck out of this office. Well well not only that when Jim Jefferies comedy special. An hour and a half Netflix says yet making course. So I think when Martin Scorsese says he wants to make a movie long making mob op. Ed quit Deniro Pacino public. What Martinus feels like an hour fifteen like? Let's let's keep it by the way. It's not like the length of it matters at all Netflix. It's like here here doesn't matter yeah you can pause it and yeah you can watch it right you can watch. It doesn't matter you don't try to fit some TV timeslot by hate the hate twitter guy. Don't tell them criticize. Is Somebody like. Oh so you've never criticize anybody before doing there's a script. They've got a vision for a movie. Every decision is precise risk taking years to make this movie. That's it well. Then what's the check. And by the way right and by the way some of those mistakes others are mistakes. I guarantee you. You know a a movie. The cannonball run to they might have taken two years to put together. It was terrible. The Guy I don't know what you did. Not every movies. Perfect and part part of the fun in the joy and the passion of movies is criticism of it. It just talk about it. We'll know if the if the director is happy with how a movie came out and it's good the same by the way of course as happy with a great cook like a pulled it off I mean but also now takes any movie. This podcast has ever criticized dodd. God You have to wait a minute. Director doesn't the director. No more than you about. Oh you didn't like this movie with. Chris Nolan directed so now is their jobs to come on. I mean that's what they should say. Listen a little disclaimer here. Where can criticize anything because director took a lot of time to make it? Yeah and there's a script so don't criticize it now. You can say if people it'll say like Oh this scene all right asshole you're gonNA disagree with Martin. Scorsese I get that. I don't get that I get the idea of mocking if you like. I'm saying like the movie. Sure you'RE GONNA monks. I'm want to try get sure but saying you shouldn't be allowed to criticize someone sane. I mean there's there's that movie you know I think you liked it more knighted but and I like to find but that is it's a movie that is ripe for criticism just too long. The aging is nuts. A Lotta this muddled. If I asked you questions about that movie I bet you get four wrong I would. Yeah it's muddled. It's it's confused now. This parts of it feels like a scorsese movie. I like the music is always of course. Movies awesome character was narrating raining. That you get you get all the hits and I love it. You get these little side characters it felt like you were in a scorsese world. I liked it. I had a great time with it but it is open to ask by. The wait is like you didn't like midnight run yesterday okay. So I didn't like I liked it. That's okay I'm not going to say. Hey Mark Breslin Electric George Gallo. Who wrote the script boy? He worked on it for three years. Yeah how dare you criticize it. Like you're going to your kids play or some place. They worked hard. I'm not going to criticize the actual the writing of the directing of it and like I said I keep prefacing. I like this guy. I've subscribed to this podcast. But I mean the other mid this gets due to induce your Steve No it does pieces this one idiots on twitter a wrong which is which is true and I think is probably that's going to be the main feature of the segment every week but I love that great reminding people of that and then also that three and a half hours is a good run time for a movie I agree with you like you is not a good run time if the movie movie is about a Little League baseball game I mean you don't know it's well I feel fairly comfortable a good hold on I should point good point by her who says he was directing what actually what if there's a little league movie that's actually set in the small town where there's corruption or something going on story I know L. but or it's just part of larger narrative story where it's this massive story G. Like why why is that not worth three and a half hours because Martin why are you criticizing that potential movie idea. Why would you do that if somebody's writing that script now she was kidding but she's right she's she's right and she was quick to say she agree with it though? Of course which I grew that kind of the theme on on time if it's the most talented people of their generation convening one final time to make something about the totality of life. I agree with you and I. They really do feel like the last hour of that movie falls into place. Because you've been sitting in your chair for his on you've been on a journey with those things and I don't. I think it works as well if you split it up because like the full weight of the time by the way she made it right about that. I didn't get the chance to do it but I could see that. Being a theater experience last hour may resonate more. If you watch all in one sitting. Maybe you did it right. Yeah yeah maybe I don't know I'm that's fine good just It's it's all right but so I agree with you I do. Do you think it's interesting just in this. Get the irony. I'll be criticized because everyone says I agree with you all the time but I don't think verbalised I agree with that. I didn't get a lot of that. I don't disagree. I agree but I would just say to people who say that and I understand when they say that But it's like the thing that we did the argument we had last Wednesday. Try having imagine these two people. Having that argument worry a third guy came in and was like you know. That's a really good point guard. You know what unlike Shawna this movie show and you should be gone. I agree with key. Imagine the fight. We had they did that. It's just unbelievable. From the moment we saw it. We're like are people going to watch a three. Dan Have our movie on that flight. And how will they watch it and will that change how people respond to it. They watch eighteen consecutive hours of the British baking show. I agree with Theo. No.

Right ocean that you could, you know, and, and it was very propagandized to the comedian Stu is like you can't make a living outside of, you know, you have to do whatever we say, because you can't possibly make a living. And after about four four and a half years of me working with the axe. I kind of had enough. There was a group of another like oil wells comedians it while we all left at once, basically. And so we have that fear of like, oh my God, am I ever going to be able to make a buck and within a week? This is God's honest, truth within a week of me, leaving X. I was booked on any comedy on the road and had HBO phone me at home to come do their young comedians, auditioned for the young comedians. And both conversation started with is it true that you have nothing to do with yuks anymore. Why khazei that it was like I was on their radar. But if it's going to be if I got to deal with except not going to buy. Okay, tell me about that because I that's not really something that ever really happened here. There was like here. It was more of a tradition. I mean, the improv became a chain, but from my recollection and not necessarily from my experience outside of catch rising star and the improv, which came later you have the. Boehner was very specific type you had to deal with each one independently some you had a party with some you had a nice to some you had to listen to the ones, I could never get the ones that wanted to pay you in coke.

"mark breslin" Discussed on WTF with Marc Maron Podcast
"There was in the mid seventies. There is this wave of comedy club. A you're from New York. So I think catch opened up and right? Yeah. City-based comedy clubs not franchises yet. But no, no, no. Yeah. And in in Toronto, we had a yuks Mark breslin. Yeah. Well, you're good. I've been doing this a while. I mean, I've been in comedy awhile. I know, but you have to remember the names. I don't remember the guys who own the funny, bone or anybody. I don't remember. I only remember some club owners that guy's name Stroup the funny bones in Columbus. I don't know. All right. I just remember. There was a whole chain. Yeah. So so, but the point was that I heard about this. And I went one night with one or two friends it because I didn't like this go they said that you want to have you ever seen stand up comedy? I'd gone to. Second city and saw that you did sketches back in the day. Like when Gilda was there and stuff Eldad and Martin short speech on candy and all those because they were in Toronto. They are in Toronto. Rick moranis moranis was the FM radio guy who started doing the I saw him at, yuck. Yuck. Yeah. Doing standup was doing even his movies. That's crazy. It is crazy. So that production of God spell. No did not watch the their second city ever. They were doing. So. So somebody said one that you wanna go see a comedy stand up comedy. I, you know, I've never seen stand up comedy live. You know, I saw on the tonight show. And I so I go with did you like comics where you at that point into comedy? No, not at all not at all. Passive. What do you want to do? Yeah. So I go see live comedy. And there was something at the time in the mid seventy that doesn't exist anymore, but it was electric. Yeah. It was fun to see some young edgy talking about real stuff. Talking about stuff that I can relate to you. Remember who he saw that night? You would know any of them, but Larry Horowitz. Do you know he is? No, no, he's these are all local comics. I don't know Jerry bed knob. Sure. Bed. Knob came out here. And I remember, Jerry. Yeah. So I had gone to the club watched it, and it was great. I just sunk into the whole thing at this point. Unlike when I was four understood all the references. A lot of these people were my age in their early twenties, and they were talking about dating, and they were talking about, you know, how their parents fucked them up talking about and I'm just laughing my head off and then resin comes up, and he goes, you know, at midnight..

Oh, my galley. Did did he want to come on the air? Well, we're really friends with the stars Brian. Well, yeah. Rob f anything you are you are a real friend local politicians. No hidden all the invites that thanksgiving this year. He said, and this is great. He said he's gonna put forward a medical cannabis Bill. Right. And there is there is zero reason that if you're a soldier who suffered PTSD if you're a cancer survivor, if you're experiencing major medical issues, there's zero reason you shouldn't be able to do that is so bizarre to me that we have not yet gone forward. And just go ahead and legalize this. We have gone so far to the left on so many other issues in this city. We're falling apart. I can't believe that we are unable to get this one right especially in the face of the opioid crisis. What is going on? So good luck to rep. Presentative Jim Lucas, the finger-wagging do hundred west Washington. I'm sure we'll have nothing of it. All right there. You could have invited him on a beef between the big range. I have to work this out of reason. Mark breslin. He's one of the few people have beefs at. All right. All right, by the way, I want to address something here because I got a little message here during the break or somebody was accusing me of not being for raising teacher pay. Wasn't doing anything during that. Rob was going on. What are those various? I was just sitting here. Playing solitaire. What are you upset with me for? And of course, we need to raise teacher salaries. Rob, rob? I am always in favor of taking care of teachers since they've become not only educators there also parents now, these I can't believe the stories that I hear from folks that I knew who work in the field of education. It's absolutely incredible. Rob give them some of your salary spirit by big hit. My big doings here WABC. And again, let's be very clear, I'm all for a teacher making whatever that local community decides the teachers work because that's why we elect school boards. And if you don't like what a teacher's making near community, you have the ability to change that with the local school board. What I don't want is a guy like Brian Bosma an arrogant person like Brian Bosma, who despite the fact that he's had total control of government basically for a decade now. Yes. Indiana's thirty first and graduation rates as of two thousand fifteen trying to finger-wagging me and tell me that he knows better. And that he's going to do everything he can to keep that money away from local school boards. That's the problem with education every two years Brian every two years. We're right back. They have to change the school funding formula because these guys can't get it. Right. Because they know nothing about education. I'm sick of it. So I'm all for teachers getting whatever the local communities decide they're worth. And I think if you give the money to the local school boards and the local school districts, teachers, Linda. Up making more. Now, can we talk about the Indian Chambers legislator legislative priorities run? Yes. Because they've had a few issues that have recently failed. Have we were talking about that? You know, what are some of the things on the agenda because they had their big meet up yesterday. Yeah. They they are now keep in mind the chamber of commerce. What do you think of commerce? You think they're going to be on the side of the folks and the people and the businesses and the low taxation, they're big priority. This year they want that cigarette. Tax raise Brian because they hate the smokers. Plague on society, they hate the poor people. Yeah, they want the two dollar per pack tax increase now Bryant here is my question that I never understood is if something is legal why should it be taxed differently? This something that is legal because it's a sin to smoke was doing their part to take care of the American people's health. Yeah. Because now that we're providing everyone's healthcare we have to do what we can to get folks to stop smoking. So by making it more expensive, rob that's somehow going to help decrease the overall smoking rates. You.
