Comics Shouldn't Watch Comedy

He was real cool. You're talking about, you know, stuff slowing down comedy wise because of Covid and I was like, yeah, I haven't done a show since Jennie where. He's like, well, those first three months are year fault, and I was like, yeah, I know, let's say yeah, I am aw I know now. He was cool. Yeah, we talked about like he's doing. Like I brought up that we were doing the we had the discord server for for the comics and he he's got like an online comedy show called like the Nowhere Comedy Club. Yeah, I've seen I've heard about it and seeing people post about it. I haven't checked it out yet. I looked it up now and I was like, okay, that's it's kind of cool. Actually think e Miller was on at one point in time. Probably. Yeah, I mean he's not a bunch of stuff with Ryan. Yeah. Yeah, well, I mean the he's the own. He's be part owner. I think of you always part of our while he's for a little bit off starter was, I think. So I think get part own it for a while. I knew he owned a was part owner of a bunch of clubs. So it is that more teason. I think the Caribbean. We we will. They all kind of part really. Yeah, wow, when was that? Right before I gotten the comedy okay, okay, so he must have left about time I moved up, because you started about the time I moved up here. Yeah, so, okay, I didn't see God, I wish I'd know that. Would asked him about that because I kept mentioning that, like we were in it wearing Dayton and surprise he didn't bring it up. But it must not have been an aimical part immicable parting. Now he think it was. I don't know a lot about it. I think they kind of fucked him, like, yeah, I think he put up the money for it and people behind the scenes fucked him. I think. I know. I don't. I don't hundred percent, though. So seems from what I've heard that seems to happen a lot. Like laugh, because I was on Don Dawn Smith was doing this like like online podcast festival thing for the weekend and he had me on for the life and he's he's like he was talking about just he's so just taking such a back seat to everything going on there, because it's all just so exhausting. And Yeah, no, I can imagine. It can't be fucking east, especially fucking down the pandemic. Yeah, because are they? Are they closed again? No, no, not yet. Yeah, I had a book two shows this weekend for him. Oh, really doing? What the fuck? Which I want to get you on one. Yeah, I know you don't. I know you are Friday Saturday, so I can't fucking go on one worst, the fucking worst. I and she that she doesn't get me like I usually get like a lot of time in advance the plan them. Yeah, it's like a maybe give you a heads up. But she was like there's just a super dope festival this weekend. Oh, that's right. Yeah, because let rising covid case and all that stuff, they saw to cancel Super Dope Dand Oh yeah, which I understand. And she asked me if I could do it and honestly, I don't see anybody coming out this weekend. They I had eight people last weekend, last Friday, this past Friday. That's not that's not super so, with it being Thanksgiving weekend, that's not super surprising. But yeah, you go on now and I'm not surprised. Was a surprised out with that book, Covid and all that stuff. I'm like, I plan on losing money this weekend, some paying...

...the headliners and then, Oh man, yeah, but losing money in comedy is kind of the Wayman e comedy. I started watching Marvel's Mrs Masal on Amazon Prime. Finally. It's pretty pretty fucking good, like even for being like a like a fifty s period piece, like it mean the first season. I mean it's this you know, Hoity toity upper upper west side girl getting in the comedy for the first time and not knowing a fucking thing or who to talk to and what to do. And like a lot of those fears came came crawling back from when I was sixteen, like Ah God, I remember certain you're sixteen star, sixteen man Fella showing high school. I did pretty good too. It was the second show that was terrible. Yeah, wow, yeah, but yeah, it's it's it's a funny show. To mean Alex, Alexports, we're steam one for family guy. Yeah, yeah, more steen. She's funny as Shit on that show, is she? But they got, I forget the guys named. They got a guy in there playing lenny bruce and and fucking lenny bur I know, died, was it not? That without a fucking dime to penny to his name. Oh Yeah, Oh, yeah, they don't. They don't shy away from the fact of the guy with a fucking train wreck like yeah, but I mean he I wonder how he would do today. Man, I don't know. What would he talk about, because he was talking about shit you weren't supposed to talk about back then, you know, getting arrested and all that type of stuff for but like how far would he take stuff? Like him and Patricia and Neil, I have wondered. Yeah, they would be today. I wonder about Patresekau is. I've seen Patrese kind of loose control of the room a few times because sometimes he gets a little caught up in his own head and it's it goes from being funny to just be in just angry. And, like I remember it, the whose roast was it was it Charlie Sheen's roast, somebody's roast? He went up and like just just you throughout all his jokes and just started just going after people for for the mean Shit they said. It's like, dude, it's a fucking roast man, they're gonna Talk Shit. That's the whole one. I've never seen that one. I think it was Charlie Sheen's and yeah, he was the last one to go up before she did his rebuttal and I love patrees. It was a it was a bummer because you know, they taped that thing, you know, months in advance and then like a week or two after it aired, Patrese died and it was like man, that's a sucks. Is like mess. The last thing would remember you for. This was kind of being a bit of a bitch on stage. Yeah, but one of my favorite specials ever is elephant in the room. That's so good. I know. Oh my God, I just re watched it like two weeks oo just because, just because, like I just fucking love that fucking rest to spell rest to urt. It's a good fucking bit, because I even when I when I'm riding out stuff or tweeting, I'm like rest and I just laugh at my head spoke because like even I im like our ap Ha. I all it. That's that bit while always stick on my head. I was watching, I was on I got the Pluto TV APP on my phone and there's a channel on there that's just caught me central specials, and they were doing a bunch of the old comic central presents ones and it was it was Bruce Bruce, Bruce Bruce. Oh, I fucking love Bruce Bruce. Haven't seen Bruce Bruce to come in forever. Last time I saw him do anything was on an episode of Aaron really like years ago. You think he is? He Lost Weight? Now? I think so. I think yeah, you think he's. He was a big motherfucker. He showed up in here. He should want to layer the cable guys movies and I was like, Jesus, dude, like, you gained weight. I know. Vell Crawford lost a Shitload of weight. Yeah, I lovel yeah, that was a big motherfucker to yeah, well, fucking lovell. And if it was a breaking...

...bad ways it lavelle and breaking was that lavelle and breaking bad and the builder and they fucking lay like they they just fall down on the stack of money. Yeah, Oh, yeah, like that's what you know. He's big because I got damn like I was member one of his, one of my favorites, of his thoughers. He was like people would because he was big. Guys like, why are you breathing so hard? It's like so I can live, Bitch Shit. Yeah, it's I used to watch those every Friday night. Comedy central used to be Friday night stand up and it was just all the specials and all whoever had like a DVD dropping that month or something, and that's how I saw Chris titis and specials. I've never seen any stand up and I kdus. Yeah, I've never seen ties stand oh shit. And everybody loved and everybody is like he's the nicest person on and off the stage and he and like when he comes what happens is, I know when funny, but I was up he coming to town. He'd do stuff for comics to if I remember correctly, like he'd like like, do you like a writing session with comics or some normally, because I saw him, it funny bone a couple of years ago he that that particular year he couldn't because they were so booked. Yeah, were about it. But yeah, I saw him when he was working on a new special and he's the nicest fucking dude on the face of he's funny as Shit. Oh, I bet I was, because I was a fan of his from from the Sitcom that was on Fox for three years, titus. Yeah, and I saw they're doing like a reunion, a couple of reunion episodes online. I might have to check those out. But like all his specials, I have like all his DVD's and albums. He's he's right up your fucking alley to man, probably is. I is literally of like I don't watch like surprisingly I do commy I don't watch like a lot of comedy. That's my most I think it's most comics, like it gets in your head. Well, yeah, only that I'm a friend. Want to rip somebody off on a and not rip my don't act on purpose, but yeah, like I'll fuck like that happened. That happened to me when I was was like nineteen. I was doing I was doing a set. I got booked at this like it was a country basically a country club, but like not not a nice one. It was like a redneck country club. So a country yeah, basically country club without the OH. And they booked me in a buddy to basically his co headline this show. And it was around Super Bowl and I just seen like a new Lewis Black specially did a bit about the Super Bowl and I had written a bit of about the Super Bowl. I blanked. It was was to my clothes are as like that. So I thought I remembered it and when I was done went back and watch the video and I was like I just did Louise Blacks entire super bowl. Jesus. So I I've had to scale back because I used to watch them like religiously. Every time there was a special I'd watch. I've scaled it back because, yeah, it it hinders the the writing process a little bit. We got other people stuff in your head. It does like it was. The last I watch Chappelle's like whenever he comes out on just because it's Day of Chappell and im by even that I've watched all his like I still have not seen everything. One's on that I saw the six and stones and the first one they released by watched the other two. I just don't. I haven't watched his netflix specials. The too. I know the first one is really good to I haven't watched apparently people don't like them. It's like fifty really, but the one of them is in like the belly room at the store, the commed. Oh Shit, so it's like really tiny. Yeah, and Stix it son. I think it's fucking great. So people feel people want a bitch, saying he's bashing like the LGBT and he's not. I did hear about that, am I god. I'm like, he's not, like you can talk to a gay part like there. He doesn't tire bit about writing in a car. You can talk to a gay person. They'll say exactly what he said. MMM, like it just and it breaks it down. It's just so I think it's so good. Well, a lot of times when you hear about like such and such a group being offended by something, it's not the group that's offended. It's people getting offended on behind half of another group. And I did realize. I think it's like three people on twitter that get it. It's never a Lart, it's always just yet it's some...

...fucking sewing circle who were sitting around one day like, did you hear what that Dave Chappelle that Netflix the other day? Oh my God, if I ever become a famous comic, I get canceled. So far, so fuck. I do wonder about that sometimes, like if I ever make it fucking big at they if they pull a pull a James Gunn and go back through my tweets from the last ten years, I'm fuck, I'm really. I go right ahead, I already know what I have like. It is what it is. I I would probably be that guy. All right, so we're going to do this here. In My tweets, was the gun thing was fucked up to the gun thing was was soup because it was that, because that was an issue that already been addressed. Yeah, and then I put them back on it. Yeah, they brought him back. is like as soon as Warner Brothers hired him for suicide squad, Disney was like fuck, all right, fine, yeah, fucked on that. Well, Mama, not only that, but you also had like all the cast basically signing a letter saying like you don't bring him back, like we all fucking walk like cancel culture. I can't stand it. I think it's going less towards cancel culture now. I think it's going the opposite direction. there. I've never, I've never liked been super on board with like the idea of like cancel culture being a thing, because a lot of times I look at it like okay, are we canceling someone for the sake of canceling them, or were they actually a Dick? Yeagg I. Will Happen is people just fucking dig and dig to try to find something. Yeah, and the genius part about the fuck up thing about canceled culture is like you'll bring up something in their past, find that. So you're saying a person can't grow. Yeah, that was the Kevin Hart thing. Yeah, it was, you know, the James Gunn thing. Shit. I was talking about a band on my other shows the other day, hate breed. When they first started, I mean like before their first album came out, they got like into a fight with some with some dude. They're like fucking in nineteen, twenty years old, at a bar and called him a called him a fagot and left like a super like homophobic voicemails like yeah, that was thirty years ago and the guy since then has like, you know, grown the fuck up a little bit. WHO, in the S wasn't a fucking home of Phobe? I'm sorry, like every one of the was the fucking home of phone. Yeah, and that, I think that's the ultimate, like the ultimately. I can't the other one I want to use, but it just cancel calls to digging people's past, like you can't. You're saying a person can't grow, which is the most ridiculous thing. It's one it's one thing when you're doing that, when you're digging into someone's past and look, but it for me. But the difference is whenever somebody does something now, yeah, and they're like, oh, they get fired, oh it's canceled culture. Well, no, they fucked up. Now, yeah, they fucked up. Yeah, you still have these, still have to suffer consequences when you do terrible shit. Yeah, the difference is when it happened twenty, thirty years ago and you've already addressed it. And well, that's what's irritating to me. Is like see your team the kept. The whole Kevin hard thing was bullshit. I might have a fanic evn art. I think he's funny. Like, I don't. Doesn't make me laugh. Well, I'm like you can't fucking for know. Like no, it's ridiculous. And then that led to nobody wanted to do the Oscars. They haven't had a host since because every every time they ask somebody, they're like why is? You can pull that's really has happened ever ever since, because after he pulled out, they asked everybody else to come on. Nobody wanted the hosting. Get Jimmy for Jimmy Kimmel didn't want to come back because everybody was just like no, because what are you gonna find on us next? Yeah, you know. So. Yeah, so they haven't had a host ever since. One then was it Gervase? Does the Emmy's. He does the golden glows and Globes and he fucking rips as last. Everyone every wants to get salty, and it's like what did you think was going to happen? Yeah, one of my favorite fucking movies ever is the one where he plays Jesus. He pretends to be jeet, like mention lying. I love that movie so fucking good. That movie is really I did not expect a to feel shit watching that movie. That is such a fuck you movie and I love it so much,...

...so good. Just use the invents religions, which, when you think about the idea of the movie, it's like, I didn't expect that going in, but once it happened I was like yeah, that, Ricky Gervasis, makes sense. That's how religion actually started. Just somebody trying to comfort somebody else. Well, that, like Mary actually had that. A train ran on her and then one of them got pregnant. God, are pregnant, and that's how many. Three was a three Wiseman call, yeah, and three Wiseman. We're like, Hey, gave her guests because I didn't know which one. Right, it's the only original three men in a baby, because maybe you've ever seen fucking Jerusalem porn before? A lot of major coming coming in a major camel. The camel was holding the camera. I'm being shit, Shit, I would. Did they say that? They say Oh God, Oh Jesus. Back then there was oh, yes, they're probably a this. They went, Oh, science. Imagine, like, well, I guess I gotta believe in God now. I was atheist. Don't even know. There wasn't such thing as a seist before me. But right. What was the was the Robin Williams bit where it's like, imagine trying to sell that to your husband, Joseph, like a okay, Mary, yeah, I'm supposed to just be sure. Okay, whatever, fine, yeah, you say so. What to be a stepfather, God's Kid. Great, awesome, what a bad God short endimi stick right. I my sister to the game swap the other day over in kettering and I found a Stephen Lynch DVD for five bucks. Oh Wow, which is a name I hadn't heard and probably ten years. And this is why at the L ray DVD's fucking I've seen that one, walking funny, I had seen that in so long. And they also had a bunch of bill cosby DVD's that look they had. Nobody was going to be buying them many time. So it's not a collector and her collector, I cle CSI and Bill Cosby DVD's gonna go up the same alley. Well, Oh shit, fuck would you think of the whole Chappelle, Sappell Chapelle show? Netflix? Great on his part. Yeah, they fucked him, it did. Like I mean like, I don't know if you had to return all the money he made. I don't know how that works or anything like that, but like they did kind of fuck him. Oh yeah, we're getting did we? We're going to profit off of a show with your name on it that you were not going to see a dime from. Yeah, get fucked. What? Yep, and and made them so much money. Oh yeah, and he left because he didn't like he didn't like what they were doing to the show to begin with and he realized they were using him. And like, more power to him to be like I gotta go. Yeah, like he didn't have I can, because you could you could tell they had no plan. That would be the hottest show on television. You couldn't walk down a hallway in a middle school without somebody going what? Yeah, or you know, child. I'm yeah, like that was thought. I mean that was the number one show on television, I feel like. And he was like they're make me do stuff I don't want to do. I know, they say I'm done. Like yeah, I don't. He did the right thing and my favorite part I watched it was was it called unforgiven? I think that's what it's called. His video on Instagram is called on yeah, favorite parties. Like, I'm not asking you to boycott these companies, I'm asking you to boycott my name pretty money. Yeah, he's like, don't boycott the got, boycott me. Yeah, until I get my fucking money, because everything, because it's got his name on it. That's what they're it's that's like the whole prince thing. I think everybody wanted to know if he was actually getting paid on the reruns and up, because that's re Dake. The not get paid anything like his. Like, fucking what's there? The friends people get paid on? Oh, they still make millions upon millions per episode and billion.

Anybody in a Sitcom makes residual income off that. As long as it's in royalty, as long as it's in syndication, unless you have a shitty agent. You got to be seeing some back end on that. Movies are a little bit different, but yet tv you got to figure especially friends, because like every network runs friends reruns. That's some hour of the day. Yeah, whether it's two am or two in the afternoon. FUCKING TBS shows it for four hours a day, every day, starting at noon. Oh my God, it's my mom's favorite show. I've never been a friends front fan. I grew up on it because I grew up with my mom Um. But but it's one of those I why I watch it now like look retroactively. I'm just kind of use there's this a show about just terrible people. Yeah, these are all Shitty, horrible people, just a let's naive funny. Yeah, how is Thanksgiving for you? I mean it was all right. You. Thanksgiving day we usually don't do much because my brother and I both have to work. So we did like a big like breakfast in the morning at my mom's and then we had Friday and Saturday off, and so that's my other brother came to visit with his wife and we did the big dinner on Thursday and then Friday we just got hammered because usually whenever my brothers in town, it's we all just go brewery and bar hopping, and so we started it branch and bone. At like twelve thirty, went the Dayton beer company and we meet, me and my brothers and my my uncle. Finished off at century bar, which I had never been to, and I'm a big Bourbon Guy, and you paid by the shot and the shots are priced based on the price of the bottle. So you know, yeah, I think it'd be three dollars a shot or ninety dollars a shit. Yep. But by six o'clock we got back to my uncle's house and I was I was not walking straight and loaf, a loaf of bread sitting on the counter. I was kind of like, I need some of the brand right now, tearing off Onk of it. Can Give me, give me, give me. That was good, though. It gives you. We stay at home, mean her did, because of Covid yeah, and then I just ate it edible and got super fucking guys. Didn't do like a big dinner or anything. I mean we had it made our own, did you? Well, not made our own. Pretty much. What happened was there's a local place that was doing like to go type stuff before you call. Haven't not even Bob. It wasn't know it was a camera. Was Rudo brewering company? Oh yeah, they were doing like it was like giving a Thanksgiving thing for like fifty bucks if you wanted everything right thing. I was like fifty bucks for everything, and then they basically made it would it didn't have Turkey with us, one thing to have. So I got madheotatoes, like some type of Castroles, a couple other things. Pay Fifty Bucks and they give us some instructions just how to already prepared. Just have to heat it up. Oh, cool, and then Turkey I could. She's she only eats fish. She muchtarium. She was vegetarian, now she's Pescetarian's yeah, she was a vegetaor which is vegetarian? Hear she's vegetarian that occasionally gets to eat this. Yeah, fish is fucking expensive. Yes, she's vegetarian for fifteen years and then she's just started doing fish, like last year. Let me just started doing it. was because she's like, I just want another way to get protein. MMM, it's literally it. I was like, well, I have away, I don't like doing that, and married, you don't have to anymore. She said that said today. She ceilarious. I don't go on vacation. Like when I saw us, I was like you gotta swallow more. She's like, I'm married, I don't do that anymore. I was like, I am aware you guys probably every probly thinks I'm addict to my wife. I am, but we give it to each other. It's funny and I got super fucking high thanksgiving. Yeah, I had part of a cookie. I knew it was a bad cookie...

...because my buddy bad cookie. It was like, well, I had I don't know how many milligrams are in the part of my cookie, because I know the whole cookie at two hundred fifty milligrams in it. Okay, and my buddy ate almost the whole thing and then I was like he found out there's two hundred and fifty milligrams and he was like what? So I did drive him home like and he let me have the rest of it. I don't know if it's half or like a third or whatever, but like I don't know, but I was obliterated. Like I knew it was good when within thirty minutes I was already feeling it in inedible usually don't few do. You just don't feel in edible until like an hour, two hours in, like sure, he's got to getting your system. That's a cool I don't know if you're seen the movie instant family. Yeah, I thought that was a psychological thriller. That's how fucking high I was. This is a family comedy and I thought it was a psychological I was like this girl, the older sibling, is she's gonna murder them, play them for fools. Right now, like I sub plots within sub plots. I have subplots within my life that never existed. It's a high. I know, still high when I want to work the next one. Holy Shit. It was bad, like I don't think I got clear headed like five the next day. I get took it at ten in the morning. Oh my God. Yeah, Holy Shit, thirty six hour high. Holy shows. Like I woke up, I was like I try to get to the gym, want to the gym, and I was like I was like forty minutes in my gym. I was like, like on Friday I was like four house. It is fucking weird. I'm just gonna leave and then I gotta work. I'm like, man like, I think I'm still high. Switching you with the gym's going like like you're going hard. Yeah, yeah, it's like two five pound weights. Here's how if I don't even know what the fuck some people I think high and you go to the gym. I do not. I don't get what people do. Want to go to the chip period. I can't imagine getting high. I'm anything like you do. Is fucking when I'm high. That is literally it. But I just like it was like five o'clock alsounds like clear headed because and I hated customers again. It's it's like I think I just wore off. Do you cooked? Is Your Wife Cook? Who Cooks in the house? Ye'all both attempt. She's really a cook. Like she's cooking fish for self. Tonight, right when I get home, I going to cook some chicken for me. I just varies. Like lately I've been cooking like a lot more, just because comedy wise winning seeing she cook herself lox. I was always gone. Yeah, and then, but lately, ever since covid like we kind of Split, kind of do what we do type of thing. Let me go out like twice a week. Got Fun for yourselves? Yeah, Kinda like yeah, I linked tight as. She's cooking salmon or some chilly dies. I'm cooking chicken. I like Salmon. I got both in the fridge. Do Yeah, I've been watching a lot of Gordon Ramsey has this cooking at home series on on Hulu, so I watched a bunch of that and it's it's just like it's not like his usual like high class French bullshit, like it's just like here's how to make like really good, you know, fucking shepherds Pye and shit like that. So I want to hang outt want to hang out with him so bad because I feel like he'd be actually cool hangout guy watching, watching this show where, because it's him at home with his wife and his kids. Huh, he's the most like fucking embarrassing dad on the face of the earth, like just gives his kids shit constantly. Oh, like he's like, I got his daughter help it. Um. He's like yeah, we're going to put a lot of garlic in there, because the more garlic you got, the less the boys are going to want to date you, because like here, teach you how to make this. That way you can make this for your boyfriend. How Nice it will be all three of US sitting down to have dinner together. That's funny. So it's good. I've seen I've seen a bunch of his stuff where it's like him at home. There's the show he did call the F word. That was like kind of a variety show and it was a lot of clips that like him at home with his family of kids and like his wife just given him shit because they were raising turkeys that they were going to then slaughter to have for Thanksgiving one or for...

...thanks of your Christmas or something one you're not Thanksgiving their British for Thanksgiving one year and they got a little too attached. So he's like just sitting there, just petting it, and she's like, you know, we have to like kill that Turkey eventually. Right. He's like now, I don't like I'm being negative. Your being going to get up and walk away from you and lease are sitting there just kind of like this is this is what I have to live with. He's the biggest fucking Dork and yeah, I want to like he says it, he was a Dick in Hell's kitchen. This I'm I think he plays that person on purpose. He might also be that at work. I saw I saw an interview with him. I think he said the reason he's like that is because he's it's a competition with professional chefs. Yeah, so he's got like really high standards for them, as opposed to like you watch master chef and these are like fucking housewives and he's kind of Dick on there, but not as big as a Dick on. He's a Dick if they do something stupid. Yeah, but like junior chef, he's like the nicest and the villain. Yeah, only like, God damn, this guy's a better dad and my dad. Yeah, he's. He's. And then I watch this show on on Disney plus he does called uncharted, just him going to like random remote corners of the world, like fucking Peru and like more away and shit, and just like living with locals for a week and he's so out of his fucking element, like they're getting to eat grubs and Shit and how to cook with like wild play. He's just such he's such a fucking baby to if you watch him on hotly, you know that hot ones show? Yeah, if you watch him on that, he's such a he's such a bitch, pusses out so hard and his like on the verge of tears the whole time he's like shugging milk and eating doughnuts and he's like, Oh, fuck me, awesome, God, what the fuck a BA can hot onesn't a great fucking concept of a show? It's the best. I'm fucking like, I will watch that show for hours. I don't give a shit. How do you? How do they come up with that idea? Just just some guy who was just I want to interview celebrities and we're going to eat hot wings, and I got it. It does ate. It humanizes the fuck out of some good because he's not just getting like, you know, Randy, he's getting fucking Halle Berry and the undertaker and Natalie ree elms. Is it just an Alba? Yeah, fucking get key and peel on there. He tried want to see he's had ever really. Yeah, he said Shack on their shack, Shyla Buff, Zoe Kravitz, I mean, and like they get vulnerable as a fuck on that show and they just get sure. Charlie Starron was funny as it was funny as Shit. She's Oh, yeah, he said he had guy, he had guy fiery and Rachel Ray on there and he had Rachel Ray first and then he had guy fiery on Guy Fears. I remember how Rachel was like drinking milk and drinking water and she, yeah, I didn't touch my milk. Make sure you let her know that likes so fucking competitive he was. He was funny as shit though, but yeah, imagine pitching that to your boss. Is just I'm gonna do a show from Asia, tabley hot wings of celebrities and ask him personal questions. And they and they, but they're also like they've launched, like they make all their own hot sauces now and work for him. Yeah, fucking work for him. And then he's got they gotta got a game show vers on TV now. Don't do that. I saw where they put. They put like a collection of it on Hulu now and I was like, okay, imagine selling that the Hula. Yeah, my thing is, why would I go watch this on Hulu, where I have to pay for Hulu and sit through commercials, or I'd go watch for free with no commercials? What's what's the game plan here? I have no fucking clue. I was all reading, was it? This is kind off topic. Well, not, kind of. I was reading that. Apparently Amazon prime, like sixty percent of people have Amazon prime and United States or some shit like that. I believe it as not fucking crazy. That's insane. And yet I still have to pay to watch certain movies on Amazon Brea. Yeah, that's that's my one, my one caveat. I love it for the free shipping and, like you know, the boys is on...

...there, Miss Mazals on there, lioks. But but, like, if I want to go watch like a movie, movie on there, I gotta pay three hundred and ninety nine to rent it for and I'm like, okay, now, I'm already paid twenty bucks a month to use your fucking service. Exactly, why do I have to what are you napster? Like, what the Fuck's this? I'll be fucking very especially maybe. Come on, I like anyways, hurtain. What aim at? People are bitching that Netflix is going up in price a dollar watch. I'm like, yeah, but we don't have ads. Yeah, like, I don't care, like you, I watch Netflix so much, like I I take no ads are seventeen dollars or some shit like that. WHO's the One? I got a problem with that. I still gotta Watch fucking ADS. Yeah, get from you can pay more to get the AD free version. The fuck. You re pain. You enough money at live right now. Yeah, yeah, like it's like sixty bucks a month. I got for baseball at now. She wants it because because she likes her designing shows, she hasn't a cable and like ten years. Really. Yeah, and so we do that and sixty bucks. But yeah, I'm good with it. But I also spent eight hours a day at work watching network TV. So when I'm at home with like, I either want to watch, like I had Bob's burgers on earlier, but like I just want to watch, like shit that I can't watch it work or if anything. You know, I had to play video games. But well, I want to want you. I want to watch big mouth. I want to watch fucking I don't know. I was watching the Harley Quinn series on on Hbo Max. That was pretty good. The what Wass at? A ANIMAR team? Yeah, its fucking funny as Shit. It's really Raunchy. It's got what's her name from Big Bang Theory? Is Harley Quinn? Penny Blond? Okay, yeah, she's Harley Quinn's fucking funny. It's such a they did an episode with with Batman and Robin, and Robin's like eight years old and he's all pissed off that he hasn't got his owns, his own art at his own arch nemesis yet. And so Batman has like the talk with him. Instead of being about sex, it's about finding your perfect arch of arch villain or something. He brings him a sandwich cut shit like an are. He's like a major, your favorite sandwich. It's like you didn't make that. Alfred made that what I told him to make. It's what's kind of like I made it shit. Yeah, I love it, but, yeah, yeah, if I'm paying for Shit, I shouldn't have to pay to watch the Shit on the APP. Like I'm already paint, like I agree. Yeah, I even know. Like there's the PEA cock APP. I don't even know what that is. That's the end be. I don't know. I don't know what. I don't know if you have to pay for that though, because, like I'm like, I really like parts in wreck, but it's on. They took it off Netflix. Noce on peacock. I'm like fuck, that's that's where I'm getting kind of pissed off right. No, I was like everybody doesn't need their own fucking APP. Yeah, when the especially when they're all charging ten to twenty bucks a month for it's like I'm just going to done. The whole thing was res was getting away from Cable TV. Yep. Now I might as well have cable TV for the amount of money I'm going to spend. Yep. That's why I like I gravitate towards one's like Hbo Mac, because Hbo Max is Hbo, but also like adult swim, DC Warner brothers, like a whole bunch of Shit. Netflix, Hulu was a whole bunch of Shit. I'm not going to get the CBS APP just to only watch what am I going to watch? Two broke girls on fucking fuck. You know, I only watched two broke girls because I am also broke. Was it an only? That is just do you want? Or I wonder if Netflix, Hulo or them like they automatically project how many people they're like okay, this person, we're not once a script and that's a scription. That guy's going to give out his information at least ten other people right. So, Oh, I wonder if they have to have that like some type of like well, you got to figure that's why I like like. Netflix has the has the packages for like multiple screens. They know multiple people are going to be watching on the Song Ount, you know, sling, sling, even sling TV has that. The that Internet cable, other cable option does it. It's like Hulu live, but it's not through Hulu. Same thing. If you get the right package, you can have multiple users on the same...

...account. It's like everybody. They they're not. They, they're not dumb. Yeah, yeah, you'd have to be a fucking idiot and not think no one's gonna give out their log it in Poto this. No, no, he's fucking big mouth, which is a Netflix series, makes jokes about it in the show every fucking season. He's like the yeah, my family can't afford Netlix. Don't worry, I'll give you my patent. Then this is a censored for like that's funny. I gotta Fuck and that now is a cool part about the day. Should but going back to the day Chappella, Netflix immediately pulled that, yeah, off their platform. They're like yeah, okay, we got you all. Even even Dave said he's like, I don't hold it against Netflix. Yeah, he's like, that's why I asked. He's like, we got a good thing going on. That's why I flease, like, I think is it? Like that's why I fuck with Netflix. Yeah, it's imagine that. They probably spent a lot of money at that. Oh yeah, but they're also probably not hurting for it. Oh No, and they're here's like hey, get rid of it, and they're like, because not a lot of companies respect that type of shit. Those of don't give a fuck. Yeah, but also you got a figure, like it'd be one thing if, like, the show was coming from like Disney, like Netflix isn't Gonnassari say no to Disney money. Yeah, who the fuck is comedy central? Yeah, other than drunk history. Does anybody know what's actually on comedy central anymore? Daily Show? Maybe, yeah, but yeah, I get it. It's like, yeah, what do the You fucking do? You know? Nobody's nobody's like nobody's building their cable package. Like I'll get this cable package as long as it comes with comedy central. Okay, like Disney, Disney, if it was a big enough company, he may have had a bigger fight to the fight, but Disney probably owns comedy central. Just don't know it. Probably, I know, I know they have a controlling stag and Hulu. Yeah, but fuck, we get it. Got It. You got a tiny Dick. It's funny, all right. It doesn't owns everything like they own. Do Disney owns marvel and star wars and Fox, and I feel really bad for like something in mark like they're like now, like denny. They like not own something in marvel or something like that. There's a few properties. They don't tendally have ownership of the fantastic four. Well, they have that now that they bought Fox. Okay, they got that is. Imagine, like we own marvel, but we don't want that thing because just not good enough. That's that's how like they're. That's why they still the thing going on with Sony, because Sony's got spied anything to do a spiderman. And that's why there hasn't been another hulk movie, because hulk still tonantly owned by universal. That's why there hasn't been a has why he hasn't been like a like another hulk movie, because as soon as they as soon as they call the movie like the incredible hulk to or something like that, like a universal gets all, all the fucking control. That's why the Thor Ragnar rock like, yeah, the way they did. Yeah, it's it's a hulk movie, but we're calling out a thor me. It's all fucking that again. I'll till they got the daredevil series on net Flix, because that used to belong to Fox. Well, then trying to get that the trying to get Disney to revive that. I know they fucking fucking better at least that. And Punisher. Yeah, I can give a shit about the other ones, but fucking my favorite fight scene. Well, I knew daredevil was good. I think it was episode two of the first season, the the hallway fights. Hallway fighting is fucking well done in one take. Yeah, every season has one of them. Yeah, I know. And it's like the fucking best because you like, that's how a fight would go, like you'd be physically Oh, hausted, not wanting to do any stands up in the hallway. He's just like and this other guy gets up, he's just like God damn it. Yeah, that's like exactly how a fight scene would work. Oh yeah, and then in the secret season two it was the it was a stairwell, yes, see, season threes was insane because it was eleven minutes and it was level. was because the prison break, yes, and right, Oh God, yes, and I timed it was eleven minutes straight. Imagine being the guy that fucks up one of the takes. You will be fired because a the reset on. That's got to take hours. And then I forgot about the prison break, because even that one ends with him like crawling into a cab, just like, oh, she's got the shit kicked out of him for eleven minutes straight man. Fuck. But again, that's my...

...point. Is like that show had better fight scenes than iron fist at iron fist is a show about a martial artist. Yeah, well, I like they put iron fists in so they could just do yeah, they talked about this before, just to defenders, defenders. Yeah, yeah, that's how I felt. Like thor was. They did a thor movie specifically so they get you get the avengers. If he watched hers all, Thor, you like, this is even that good? It's okay, it's okay, but the for movies, the Avengers, yeah, because of the second second form movie sucked. Oh yeah, but Ragnarok was right, much like one of the best ones, one of everyone that's like everybody's like top five. fucking wow. What what I watch? Because SAM, was it? Sam? Why? I can't think of director that directed that. By the did for Igner Rock? Yeah, Taika. Why? TD, Takoa? TD? Yeah, I watched tacoat. I watched the Hitler One. Oh, Jojo Rabbit was so fucking and movies amazing. I saw that at the neon and damn near pissed myself a couple times. So funny, so good. He's just a Taka White TV's is just a funny, weird fucking motherfucker, because he's also because he played Hitler. Yeah, and then he was the voice of the rock dude in in ragnarock. He was. Yeah, we get ask Doug. He's right there. Thugs dead. He looks at world like completely different angle the for all I had in a different angle, because they do Jojo rabbit the way like I. How did you even think about doing that? I can't even imagine trying to pitch that movie, a movie about a sympathetic movie about a Hitler, youth his okay, friends, is it imaginary? Handler's Hitler? Although, buddy, but I think once you read the script and you've got Hitler saying lines like yeah, I don't know, man, you got the best body and your entire grade. I don't mis TA girls are Grossman. It's I'm the exact reading that. I'm like, okay, I get it, it's mine. First five minutes in the Hitler you takes a grenade to the face. Sam Rock well, I think he's underrated actor. I think Sam Rockwell is is great. He want he won an Oscar for that three billboards movie. I didn't know you want to know. He won best supporting actor for that. I think it was that or that or the year before. But he's so fucking good. I Love Sam rock well. There's a lot of guys I like. I love John Goodman. Yeah, I will watch John Goodman and fucking anything. And that's a guy who's underrated as fuck. Yeah, never bad. He isn't there about anything, even even the movie sucks ass, like I can't the big Labowski. You want over the line Margaret at zero. Yeah, let me give a fuck about the rules, but me, hey, shit, my favorite. One of my one of my favorite things from the last four years has been every time trump tweets something, there's always somebody post a gift of him going shut the fuck up, Donny, Yay y even fucking speed racer, which is not a good movie. He plays the dad and he just funny as Shit a whole movie, and that seems to be racers. It's fine. Red Staves, it was he in Red State? Yeah, he wasn't using red state. He did that ten clover field lane. I mean now I like ten close it was. It was pretty good. Fucking Fred Flintstone, the guy in you see no, brother, where art thou? Yeah, fuck, okay, you the fucking gout out the Bible salesman or whatever. Oh my God, yeah, I could. I can watch him and fucking anything, and he seems like a really fucking and also like the conners and Roseanne. I mean they're Dan's the best part of that show, Yasily. Oh yeah, well, they said they're getting rid of rose and I was like hey, but it's John Gums with then we'll be fine. It's okay, good, it's all good. It is. Actually I've watched I've watched the conner since Roseanne left and it's been pretty good. That's one of my favorite older shows ever, is Roseanne. It was a little ahead of its time. Oh yeah, it was pretty fucking, pretty fucking dark when...

...it came out. Still, wow, apparently cut off at opod addiction.
