► 00:07:42

all the time to keep that place like that but the name alone brought probably brings people in but it's an iconic place man yeah New York hasn't been back to his Letterman gone I don't go do his show anymore I haven't been to Caroline's in their mouth three years four years but you do a lot of clubs and the robot we were talking about never 4040 some clubs wow you know what he comes here you know my age has come to my house in January and they tell me all the clubs I got that year they change what date we go over it we go over everyone all right June 15th and can you going to be in some sort of doing it in y'all like to money be going to get an okay that's good that's a good that's a goal so we do 47 Club as a man this is too much work I've been 52 weeks in a year yeah that's crazy I gotta have some time off what about me don't worry about this money but when you have time off all you do is complain about not being on the road complain about

► 00:08:41

people telling me what to eat what to drink oh my goodness I like to get me a little taste every 90 taste that's what I'm saying hey bunny look keep the wolf off your back that's right so I give me a give me a little taste the real problem is that travel though that's what we're told it's too much it's too though their travel over and over and over again and then we were freaking out about 8:30 7s and you were explaining to us that yeah mostly they use them in overseas and some South Wales and African countries they mended when it and in Asian country they use them well they had like two planes that just gonna loss right one from that lady that runs all pilot thanks Lex Friedman is a software engineer and he specializes in a eyes a professor at MIT and he was explaining to me is basically the software glitch was making it nosedive yeah yeah what that's not that's not something I would want to hear that when I think 2200 hundred to get my seat while you

► 00:09:40

a software engineer you have to you would have to up the pilot or copilot to let them know I hate someone has some obviously they all know what they're doing in the cockpit but does someone know what to do if the computers going down that's a really good question Do they have any training in how to reboot computers or is there a bypass or workaround for the computers yeah Lex does artificial intelligence that's mostly what he does is he works on like cars autonomous cars and planes and stuff and he was talking about as these things get more and more updated you just have glitches happened it happens all the time with your phone right you get a yeah a new bug and Twitter just crash on you all the time and they release an update but if you're on a fucking plane you what are you doing yeah and how do you react what happened how do you react to sit yeah wow you have to go through a flight simulation of hey it's Carrie there's a bug in the plane here we go know what run over all that software before they put it on a plane you know they had

► 00:10:35

the plane that crashed flips the last plane crash that was where and Africa I don't know there was two and shortly set one was one Russia no no she and no I think it was an applicant anyway those Pilots are trained to the end they to the hilt they train those Pilots but they don't know themselves some of the guys who's training people's what the heck's going on it was a pilot that was off work that was on the plane just before this plane crash same plane they have trouble before and he came out of his seat and went up to the the cock pic and cockpit and and say the plane jeez what to do yeah he'd only one knew what to do in a plane imagine being that fucking plan for watching and looking down the aisle watching that guy walk into the yeah what are you doing you'll see no one day they protect that they put the food cart in front of the yeah yeah that food truck

► 00:11:35

open anybody now but then they got a bolt on the door yeah those all those doors the other point but the pilot is in the bathroom taking a boo-boo yeah that's what that is they don't have their own Pilots bathroom no no no no the block the area yeah put that Puch right there so you have seen that many times that's a weird move I don't you have like a dedicated thing for it why is the food cart yeah the thing you don't you have like a shit have a gate some have another leap that right that you have another door just like to get on the carpet yeah they should have like some like a like you know they had do on those metal gates and produce glass windows yeah that one of those click clamp it down what a new dad didn't work because they had the riot in 66 and they told him down oh the gates on the remember that I was watching them guys something flew open yeah what could you do to stop someone from bum-rushing the cockpit like those flight attendants are not going to stop no no he'll well they should probably prepare planes with a flight attendant who has training like that in the future like a female or male who saw that's too much

► 00:12:35

those are far too much money too much money too much money do it they are probably dirty the pilot is locked in the bathroom the other pilot and the store this is locked in the in the booth when they fly the plane so you're getting in there anyway I guess yeah unless when the powder come out the bathroom well then he's not when he opened the door but they got other guy that's doing is got to come out he got to go in it's too complicated now being a people that sitting down going to know what's happened to get going to jump up I know somebody better not try this that's chaos on a plane if you start seeing all that that you're talking about well what don't you think turbulence is chaos I was on a plane once to do is almost got into a fight lady stop serving them one guy was pulling it was putting his luggage in a spot above another dudes head and the guy said that's for my stuff and he said no whoever gets there first is the one who gets it he's like bullshit and he's like grabbing his arm and like

► 00:13:35

some people just look for an opportunity to be a dick yeah I think planes of the closest that people get to walking that let me later road rage yeah the line yes it's the closest thing like when people get up and they get up too soon and then like they're pushing forward already like come on man yeah let everybody get up in the line some people like not don't push the room yeah I was I was at the gas station just now and you know how they have the big oil tankers have to bring the gas to the gas station they were blocking they were blocking and where people needed to go to park and the guy who was there was telling me that some lady was just there and she was mad at him because he pulled in a few minutes after she parked to get gas in her car and he was saying that she was like you're blocking me and he's like lady I'm either gonna block you in I'm blocking the street I can't block the full street with all the traffic and then by the time she was ready to go she finally was like nudging her way out of the gas station and the guy was trying to help her she's like don't help me I don't need your help all right and she's like and he said I'm sorry it's gonna be a minute she's like I don't got a minute and then I asked him so what kind of

his Mansion so but I got into I thought it was cool yeah he said he want the job is yours doesn't look good so he went in to do like a like a guest star role and then they were like dang he's funnier than than what we were thinking so we so they gave him a role that he was a serious right you did three season wait you did to they are and then we finish that then a third one that it hasn't aired yet and I use she when I did Hollywood Shuffle I have I played a man who had lost everything he was homeless so I'm sitting out there and Robert Townsend didn't have any money for wardrobe so I went to second hand store and Goodwill and bought coveralls and old shirt and I had a t-shirt that I tour and put a pin just put it back up so that was I thought that was clever

► 01:14:29

so this happened 20 years ago I kept that outfit in my garage for 20 years and I used it on Black Jesus

same thing I wore on the Hollywood Shuffle why Hollywood Shuffle what was it okay what's the name of that Hollywood Shuffle that's until Halloween yeah there it is yeah okay I got all this but then they so the yeah so then they took so then he wore it they they did their thing and then they were like well this thing stinks so we'll just recreate it for you they did everything over it got the same outfit that I had this that look at that I got number one and I got my little wine looking there well cakes whatever happened to Robert Townsend what is he up to these till he's a director now just directing different movies not a different moving and and commercials and things he's do stand up to you oh yeah we've just stopped on tour with him and we worked all the big places I remember his specials he always had those HBO Comedy Special yeah oh yeah even Wayne's did them yeah them

► 01:15:34

yeah Robert Townes he's still around I saw the picture and now my phone I don't know how

► 01:15:41

I don't know it's probably a new jacket now directly lose my phone he does that at home he'll say hey I don't live with him I'm grown I'm married and all this stuff I live on my own my wife will call me and say JD you seen my my camera's I move my camera and I don't know where it is I was like I don't live with you I have no idea where your things are you like what you you know and my brother lives with him still so it's one of those things I'm like what you ask Alex he's around or someone who's maybe isn't the house more often he's like not feel like you might be one who might know what he's thinking because I seen you around here I know you come around come take my things that take my stuff that'll get me a take your stuff I get no back cameras how about camera and put it over there because I know where that goes over that I come back ain't over there now I have no idea where he's at now because I put it over there that's because you and Mom and Alex and whoever else want roams through the house will move things around all the time

► 01:16:41

I'm not there to move things but I know what I know where I put things in and then when I come back is not there but they but the thing is why do you call me when I'm never there you know what it doesn't make any sense mom will take his stuff mom will go shoot her little her stuff because she she like produces doesn't little independent movie so she'll she when she grabbed your camera's that's where they moved to but do you feel pressure doing stand-up because this is you know actually I didn't want to do it never really cuz I got into acting and I thought that was far enough I was like I'm a dad or does that I don't want to I don't want jumping on the rest of that stuff and it acting was just kind of like on a whim and then stand up was like a dare a friend of mine was like we should because we back in the day not too long ago maybe early 2011 or 12 it's not back in the day but me and my boys were hanging out one night in our 20s and we just went we had come from a club and we drove past the Laugh Factory and I was like I was like you guys want to watch Comedy I don't know

► 01:19:40

are we because I was I was like getting into like a creating content and I was going to film school and I was making like my YouTube videos I was doing like sketch comedy on YouTube and then I like we shot like a little thing we watched it back I was like I guess and then we went to the mic that night and we went I did it I was at the back end of the line up so I actually had a decent crowd it was like cuz you know it starts off there's nobody there just comics and then by the time it was my turn it was like close to eight o'clock show so it was like 35 40 people I had three jokes for my three minutes at clean and I did it and they did all right they let people laughed and I was like okay that's cool random you know and I didn't think much of it Henry bombed his cassette yeah nobody but it was just one of those things where after that go ahead write up their Pastor werewolf know the camp the cameras up here cameras over there you go if you got to go pay say it to the camera

► 01:20:41

► 01:20:48

did your dad is when he grabbed well the asshole fun I got a bit about how when you just get old you just don't care you just don't care about what you say he doesn't give a fuck nah not at all but I also like that's part of who he is like yeah it's part of his business is not giving a fuck yeah pretty much yeah funny see the old man that it's I mean he's he's the funniest dude I personally know that's that's how I that's how I categorize it you know oh that's its I would think that like if that was my dad I would I feel a lot of pressure I think it's pressure if I from the beginning always want to do stand-up you know kind of like a Michael Jordan thing I never liked it was it was all a majority of the stuff I do now is very like just happenstance it's like oh I just fell into this and I'm all right at it so I'll just keep doing it why not you know when it comes to things like YouTube and like I know you do unboxing videos and game-related yeah you can kind of do that now if you're a if you're an interesting person yeah don't really need much no no definitely not with the internet know if that you came along

► 01:21:48

day you just didn't exist in all Sydney exist didn't have this giant body of work and you just put a camera on your day like this is my dad your dad can be fucking fan oh yeah if he was like a guy that works at the post office it's a regular guy film is guy at the post office you were telling your friends like my dad is the funniest fucking guy alive and then you put a camera on him he would blow up yeah yeah it's interesting and what not I never really think of because people always ask me when I was growing up they'd be like well how is it that your dad how do you feel I used to get all the time like kids would be that your dad's whoever blah blah blah famous this net Friday the Wayans brothers and I'm just like yeah but you know to me it's just my dad like he just he just a goofball it's normal like to you guys I get it to you guys you see somebody who's an Entertainer and whatnot I'm like he's just he's always like that to have fun is he shoved his special because he didn't like his stomach oh he does funny or stuff he does he does weirder stuff find that special and get it out oh I mean we could post it it's definitely or I could sell it and nowadays he can hit up me I'm sure his people could hit up Netflix like we have a we have a

► 01:22:48

body of work yeah people would watch it that's the thing yeah like who talked him into doing a new special gotta get that stomach gotta get it got it got it all you got I'll have to talk him into coming back here and hitting the gym exercise he does but he the think the main thing is the consumption I thought you know it's the all right let's cut back on drinking and then continue exercise and you'll see the change I told I try to tell him do a drink every other day doing something he's interested now it doesn't does it sounds like he's a hundred percent interested in drinking or just enjoy he's a hundred percent enjoying debt money and drinking my wine drinking my wine yeah that's having a good time he's back yeah man but is that living his life enjoying it yeah but that's that's how I got into comedy and then I just kept doing it in my friend was like yeah no I'm good how many years he doing it now I would say I started in 2012 but I want to say I haven't I didn't continue in the beginning so consistently I did like Mike's for the first

► 01:23:48

two years and then I start getting booked on shows and then I kind of got lazy it was one of those things where everything I was doing like I would weigh my options if something was more of an opportunity I would do that over trying to get better at stand up but now I've been consistent for like three years three to four years just like grinding at it because I've made strides doing things and acting in and and creating content on the internet so now I kind of have I guess a little bit of a cushion to just go and get good now you know because I've been working so it you doing other stuff yeah you have to totally rely on well it's one of those things where it because I don't have to rely on it it's that much more it's that much more something I want to approach I'm like oh well now I can like have fun I don't feel pressured not with anything about that but more like I don't feel pressure to get book get book get on again you know get a special this that money I just feel like oh I can just take time and get good now

► 01:24:48
