Yeah, it's comed. He's not doing anything, but I love Ilove movies, man. That's I mean. I was always that guy wh wouldgo to the movies by myself. I didn't give a shit as also, back when movie tickets like five bucks, so fucking expensive. Yeah, well, again that's studios taking all the fucking money, man. Yeah,I was talking to was kind to somebody to day and they're thinking, likewhat do you think is going to have? What do we think's going to happen, like with movie theaters and Shit, and after like the pandemics over,and I think it's it's got to come back, I mean because thetheater industry didn't just pop up out of nowhere like it had to. Aspeople want, like we were talking, we want to get a moveors fraidto go to movie. Yeah, I know they're dropping the new wonder womanon Hbo Max on Christmas, which I'm like, I'm yeah, I wantto see it. I would rather watch that in the theater you know,but I think we might see happen is kind of go back to like whatthey were doing like in the s and s, where like going to themovies was like an events, like you got dressed up and there was thethe aim of the B movie in the a movie and kind of like howlike drive in still do. It might see a bit of return to that, I mean Nice. Also. The studios just got to work on theirrelationship with the theaters, though, because this this whole taken a hundred percentof ticket sale and, you know, force in theaters to skyrocket their popcornprices just to stay open. They might have to do some really negotiating aftereverything set in on figure something out. Yeah, because both want to surviveand, quite frankly, studios aren't going to survive. They won't be ableto continue to make the kind of money they want without a movie theater.Yeah, they try. They tried this year, you know. The closestthey got was trolls too, and they got a little impulsive after that likesay, oh well, going for will just drop all our movies vod in. The theaters were like that's not okay. Yeah, yeah, fucking do thatto us, man I just can't wait for her. They go backto the normal. Yeah, I mean, well, I guess there's like threevaccines out or some shit. Yeah, two or three. I think Isaid the first one should be rolling out by the end of the month. It kind of kind of Larry on it all those still yeah, iffouchy wasn't, like I said, foul, she's been kind of given these thethumbs up, so I'm a little more comfortable with it. Just tasteforever for usually a vaccine to be good. Yeah, like, but it's alsobut I also look at it as like, when's the last time wehad to like hardcore big of vaccine? Oh, yeah, that's I wastalking I came here host time aount and which makes sense. It's just likeone of those things, just like like we did even take a year todevelop this. Yeah, and it's like why it's on one hand, again, that's really quick, but also like it is two thousand and twenty.Yeah, I mean, I have seen I am legend. Yeah, it'sthat poor dog every time. Like I don't even know, like apparently Isupposed to hand it out. It's supposed to go to medical professionals, medicalpersonnel first and then like at risk, like higher risk, like elderly,and beforehand. Yeah, and then I think they said general public might becloser to spring of next year, like April May. Very Gray. It'sI remember when this I'll started. I turned my wife was like yes,good, gonna last for like a year or two. Oh, yeah,and she like didn't believe me. I was like no, like you haveto mentally prepare for what's going to happen, and she's like, stuff like thisis not like a couple months, it's Ezake here and she's like andshe started crying because I was like I was trying to be a Dick,but I was just like this is like, if you look at all this,that this is how this works.

My brother waslike when did you get tested? Oh, we could go. Yeah, couldn't have said something. Yeah.

So he was freaking out all thispat all last week. I got his got his negative results the morning ofThanksgiving. But yeah, just like he's so over all of this. Everybodyis ED. Just Hmm, just one of those things. Just you can'trely on people to do to not to be the responsible person. I willsay what was awesome about this weekend was, you know, I work in retailand we were busy Friday, black Friday. Right, yeah, butit was like a normal Saturday. It was like a normal Friday or Saturdayand like normal circumstances, like right. So I'm like okay, because we'vebeen slow as shit those days and like I was like, oh, thisis exactly like, you know, Friday or Friday or Saturday. Will werekind of busy, like awesome. Saturday we weren't busy. Sunday weren't busy. So people are I think people like went out. We were like allright, well, we got the deals, we're not going to go out shoppinganymore. Type thing. Yeah, which kind of showed me that maybepeople are starting, I mean, I know people are taking it seriously.People like really starting to take us. Yeah, we went. So wewent. We went bar hobbin Saturday. It was like middle of the dayBar Hobbin. Now, granted, Saturday was like small business Saturday, likedowntown and and we're gone. This was packed. There was a line atthe door for like feathers and heart work ntile and nice and loonas and allthat, which is which is great. You know, those guys are strugglinghard. But like the you know, that was the most out and aboutI'd been in nine months and I remember got home that night was like teno'clock and I was like, I'm fucking exhausted. Yeah, because I hadbeen out doing shit for the first time and God knows how long I startedgoing. When I start going out for comedy again, like I'm going tobe fucking Jesus. I am not been like I'm not looking for it tobe like on the road again. It's like we're all have it. We'reall doing like a factory reset on our bodies right now. Oh my God, Oh, I think I did in the summer. I had like alike six shows and one week or five or six shows and I was likefucking exhausted. MMM, but it's going to be like, you know,when you're first starting and you're hitting all the shows, but you're new andyou kind of gives you like this rush that you're not used to now we'reall fucking old, so we're just going to be tired and cranky. Theycan't do that. Can't do this like I did when I was fucking younger, before covid if work. God Shit, no, it's it's gonna be interesting, it's gonna be wild. I'm in. Justus see how everything goes. Yeah, a few months. I'm just see if, like the FDAofficially says, or whatever they're trying to do, say, brought it tothe FTA, the vaccine like to FTA, they had to hit a certain thresholdbefore they would they would fully approve it, which I think is kindof what they're waiting on at this point. Gotcha, it has to hit likea like I think, like a nine s seven percent success rate beforethey'll improve if officially stamp it. Yeah, I think. And I think theywere sitting at like ninety five last time I checked. Yeah, soit's we're close, close, but no cigar. Yeah, as my daddysay, close only counts and horse shoes and ha grenades. So not pullingout. Yeah, I just don't want another year this bullshit. It's alsoone of those things that it's kind of the elections, like I'm started talkingabout it.

Yeah, like, noshit, it wasn't going to. You fucking idiots, but go back towatch an OA and you cos it's fine. Yeah, it wasn't ever going togo anywhere.

Yeah, both. I just eat a pizza and jerkoff called. They that sounds like a fucking fantastic haven't done that since thismorning. I would never say haven't done that in a couple of hours.Right. What you were saying. Clad I missed the dating like I neverreally did. I got on tender not because I was trying to look foranybody. I literally was trying to write a joke about tender. Oh really, yeah, I don't like. I got here because I've never done tenderbefore and never write and then by every has a tender joke. So Idecided to scrap it. I said I had two throw Tis my girlfriend.I time my my wife was my girlfriend's. I was like, listen, likeI have a tender APP on my phone. I was a you cantotally go through it if you want to. I am not talking anyway. I'mliterally trying to figure a joke out. She's like, I don't care,you don't. I've known comics who will use dating APPs to plug shows. Oh yeah, I don't actually that too. They would just they wouldjust swipe on like fuck it, everybody in beer. Can we go out? Not, but I got a show coming up, but you know,the end of the month, which I'm like, fuck it. Free Advertisingand never did. I've never done any of those dating APPs. I ain'tlike not tender bumble or the swipe ones. Yeah, I didn't match because because, yeah, like I had a feeling, like my thing. Iwas like, I don't want to just meet somebody to fuck. Yeah,I guess it's never been my thing. Honestly. I told my friend whileago. She's like, I can never find any good guys in plenty offish. I was like, plenty of plenty of fish is a fucking sewer. Yeah, I was like, well, it's free, right. She's likeyeah, I was like, what the fuck did you expect if they'renot using the point? Even even match has a free version. But like, unless you're paying for the people want, I paid for that Shit. Yeah, I paid for like three month subscription at one point or something.My mom paid for it once, which I was like, cheese, okay, mom, I get it. Damn, thanks for your subscription. She boughtme like a three month subscription one time. She was like. Iwas like, okay, that's crossing the line. Uh, I don't havea lot of lines to cross. That's one of them. Just trying tofind you a girl. tryance because well, it's because my younger brother is marriedand the other ones basically engage living with his girlfriend. They just boughta house together, and so it's like so whenever we do like family picturesand shit, it's like all the couples and then there's Mike with the dog. Usually that's how I savor me. So it's probably reason why I'm doublingdown so hard, like all the cat..., is because it's like I'mit's like all these fucking couples. It's like, you know, fuck you, here's my cat and here's my cat, here's my cat. And if youare getting a Christmas card for me this year, it's going to bea weird, creepy picture with the kid you're letting you know right now,like me shirtless holding a pipe and just holding her right here. And it'sfor my wide friend on his tender profile, like he'll messes people at war whenhe's at working on like I'll send them the first message, like justa joke. Usually they don't work, but he has AIDS now, sofuck him now. It's just I don't really miss doing that at all.I will say like ever since, especially because of covid I haven't had muchof any other choice, but when I started going to the APPS is definitelywould like my dating life suffered the most. Really, yeah, again, it'sonline dating. I talk about this on stage. Online daty of people. Wait, too picky. Now it does. I basically get to buildyour perfect person and no one's willing to. I hate to use the words settle, but they won't settle for anything short of their perfect person. It'slike the perfect person that your look where doesn't exist. Yeah, part ofwhat's a good relationship almost it's a good dating experience, just getting to knoweach other as the other part. Two is because you they make you putso much of yourself in your fucking you know bio, that when you matchyou got nothing to fucking talk about. It's like, so, what doyou like? While there's a did you read my profile? That's it,that's me, that's that's it. It's like it's the equivalent of I likeblow job and hitting women. What it's the equivalent of like when you whenyou apply for a job online and they're like what about this? Well,if you read my fucking resume that you made me submit, I know whenI was doing that Shit. I can't remember how long my profile was,but like I always felt like so I want a couple good days to people, like I good times. It was the one. This is gonna soundbad, I had to like stab her finger because Shit, because she's diabetic. than she actually wears an insulent pump and we're at top golf and shewas like getting really like lightheaded, like really really really lightheaded, and shelike needed like to figure out what her blood thing was, but she couldn't. Her thing would not work, and so, Oh shit, I getjust and sell us. I was like wow, we talked somebody and she'slike do you have a good knife or something, and the guy was like, I think I mean as I can bring you on broader one. Andshe couldn't physically do it herself because she had to stab herself. So likeI'm sitting there like stabbing her finger, ha ha ha. Finally fucking gotdid that and then I think we're actually going to have sex that night.I had a feel you had to, you had to stab her repeatedly througha medical emergency. So feel like it was gonna go towards that. Notthat was planning for it, but I had it like it was a veryweird vibe because we'd seen each other quite a few times. It was aweird vibe. I was like okay, and then that happened and then likewe talked flid after that. But then I start talking to my ex one, not my ex wife, Jesus, my wife now, and I justlike I mainly started because, like she see one on vacation, Blaa,Bob, this and that. We weren't exclusive or anything, so I waslike, well, I'll just she went on vacation and yeah, she wanta vacation like two or three weeks. HMM, and like I just stoppedtalking to her. I'm at my wife. I usually when I'm when I'm firstmeeting someone and getting to know them. In this is more of a mething. But like I cannot be the person. I cannot always bethe person. Do it to initiate a conversation. Yeah, I can putup with that for a couple days, but then I'll have a day we'relike, I'm not going to text first, like if you want the fucking talkto me, fucking talk with me. Yeah, if you're I'm I'm sorry, and that's that's a meeting and I maybe I've missed out on someshit. I really couldn't give a fuck if you're not, if you don'thave the fucking adult fortitude to text me...

...first once in a while, likeI'm not gonna. I cannot be responsible for the communication in this relationship.That makes sense at dating is weird. It's like a game like that.Nobody knows the rules to like do I text first or not? But doesn'tmake me look clingy, like I don't know what the fuck's going on.Yeah, and it's all different from pretty nice. It's all different person toperson. To some people, some girls like on, like on like thedating APPs. They want you to sound like a really cute introduction message.Some are cool with you to saying hey, it so yeah, some are cooledyou saying hey, nice shoes, want to fuck. I mean it'sit does actually work, but yeah, it's a game that nobody has arule book for and we're all just making it up as we fucking go.So well, joy married life on that last yeah, probably kill myself.Well, last, like we're getting into work. It is inevitable. Yeah, it is your destiny. Oh No, first time I called her, shefucking literally was like yeah, I gotta go. No, all right. We talked for like five minutes or something's like yeah, I gotta go, and like okay, do we talk for like a week or two?As very weird. It's like I think I'm message out of a louse fromthere, like Cablem do something. Yeah, we're you one of those who,like you, had to constantly be in communication and, where you can, was going like a whole without talking. M I don't know. At thattime, back in the day, I was constant communication, but yeah, like that set when I was dating at that point in time, itwas not constant, like I don't care. Yeah, I used to be likeI used to, I think what it was like in my relationships inthe past, like I put all my energy into those relationships. Yeah,to where like it wasn't about appeasing as about peasing them and not myself.That's that's an easy hold of all down. Yeah, and then this one,I I comedy, and then, like with this one, I waslike, Oh, I got commed, like comedy a piece is me,like I want to do comedy, like and she got that, but itwasn't like constantly communication between you or her. Yeah, like and that's how Ithink our relationship has been so well. Is like when we first started seeingeach other, like every relationship I ever been in prior to this onewas we'd hang out like a lot of times a week, like maybe threeor four times a week. Eventually, more and more we see each otherlike every day type thing. Yeah, and this relationships like once a weekfor like a really long time and maybe then and twice a week. Youguys, we're into yours at that point. Yeah, yeah, I think that'sa big part of it too. Is like you get into your s, you got your kind of your life set, you've got a routine setand the things you want to do. You're kind of looking for someone who'seither willing to go along with that or will to let you have your timeto do why thinks of the comedy works so well is because like even likewhen I'm not busy, like when I was busy with comedy, like I'dsay her once or twice a week would be like us living together, butwe live together obviously, but like like how we know where those when wewere first dating, it's like yeah, once your twice week type thing.Yeah, I don't I guess that's the easy hole. The fall through falldown is like to appease the other person constantly. But that's all all myrelationships been. Want to yeah, I've been. I've been in a lotwhere it was like bedding over backwards to make them happy. You know,fuck me, but you know, and they're not fucking yet and they're notfun. I've had I had one, I had a couple of those whereit's like I'm spending money, using gas, giving up free time and I'm notgetting laid. Yeah, what am I doing? Yeah, it's definitelya as if I don't miss those days. Yeah, sorry, like, getthe fuck out, no longer co host. It's just downt know dating. I couldn't right now. I just...

...well, dating right now during apandemic would be very difficult. Yeah, but even even prior I mean justdating in two thousand and twenty, dating in this time in general is justespecially our generation. Yeah, people have gotten divorces, though, because thepandemic. Okay, yeah, you would. Suddenly you got to spend all yourtime with this person. It's like, I don't realize how fucking annoying youare. Yeah, well, I had eight hours a day that Icould be away from you. I mean it's fucking crazy. I wonder howmany relationships have gotten ruined. I don't know, man. I can't waitto see those, those numbers post covid like no more, no more deathand infection numbers. I want to see the divorce rate. Twenty seven billionpercent. It's no longer one in two marriages. It's not fucking one inone. Shit. I mean, I know people gotten divorced because of thepandemic. It's just so fucking weird. And you have also seen so manypeople get married. Yeah, like, not just to you. I knowso many people who got married this year. It's weird. Shit. There's ifthere's a fucking industry for it now, for doing like like like zoom weddingsand shit is a really only certain states allow it. But the certainstates that allow it there they're going crazy because a certain states required that theofficial can be in the fucking room, but there's like five or six stateswhere that's not they just have to be like present in some form. Solike over Webcam was considered like legal. So like people been getting married inthose states like crazy. HMM. I suppose everywhere else are weddings are justI've been getting canceled or every which has been going down and doing doing thelegal process and just calling it a day. Doing well, we're lucky. Weonly had like six people our wedding. anyways. Yeah, tiny ass weddings. We have no friend not no friends, but it's cheaper. It'sfucking the hellill cheaper. Only can talked about my brother and his wife whenthey were up in me and they had a huge fucking one, and they'relike yeah, like it was cool, but like we didn't get to doanything. We're so busy taking pictures and making sure everything was going okay andall that Shit.
