cool thing about being a comic in Boston is that if you lived in Boston you could go anywhere within like an hour or two hours outside the city and work basically every weekend we were working seven nights a week at one point because a lot of people are very bad with the taxes I always my mother told me don't fool around with the taxes or the mob you might have been the only guy hamstring that knocks you got killed Kennedy get killed hundreds of thousands yeah yeah there's no getting out and I'm getting out you wanted to paint it for the rest of your life it's like student loans or something you know

► 00:15:24

22 years ago wow that's a good amount of time what had to be you know I was doing this movie and I finished the guy I had a guy through a wall and I really like the guy in on it and I don't want to hurt him and should not try to put him through the wall and took a door off the hinges and this is Whitey bulger's play psycho I'm done after today if someone's going to pay Whitey show the guy I got I finished and I bought a bag of blow and whiskey and back at the open some music as you happy that she get real happy I said you don't scare me up at 6 a.m. so I went back to the hotel I met my buddy my childhood buddy we went out and we can go before they charge us for boys

► 00:17:14

wow 23 years ago and the comedy that feel to it because the colony was frantic when I was a thing about the guys who came out of Boston like still to this day they had like the fastest pays the most punchline and the audience is there we're used to that today I want any bullshit and I would tell you if you were going to be new material by the minute you do anything you've done before I get off the stage so rajstopy sitting at the back and suck your Shadow next it was just me and the people you like you said the audiences that came in there would come every week and they would not settle for any bullshit

► 00:18:14

that's no good stuff in there that wasn't there was so many people that came to those shows that with legendary will the Ding Ho Wednesday night Lenny would put like 32 axon call shut up I got a couple more guys want to give a break to finish up here the first night he took over when krementz left grandmas was leaving and she was 85 86 someone I don't know

► 00:19:14

Grover from Barry injunction lease Esther Haman baby sleep from you stay for me I'll double your pay on the 15th of $30 right at the time and he says I'm a nice guy you just got laid off and fall what if he screws up my mother will be fine she says to shut the food sucks close the back room close the restaurant we're going to make that it I shall room too so you can open the front room he go through the kitchen and do a show in the back room then they come back there and wait till it and we started doing chick shows tonight but the first night he comes in I was pretty little because you're not going on tonight you're drunk and I got you a man so he gets cabin

► 00:20:14

I said you're not going on tonight I apologize okay you're right but it shows tonight in the front three in the back of the Chinese dominoes over Chinatown and he didn't pay his food tax and so I guess a year-and-a-half later they came and locked it up but the first they came and he would send a kid to a liquor store by post cuz they took all the pores so we have to buy booze for that night and then after that date they took the chairs they put the tables but it was Wednesday night Lenny Thursday night DJ has it Friday night Don Gavin Saturday night crimmins and Sweeney on Sunday night

► 00:21:12

maybe I'll just kill it show people don't know is that Boston a different way doing it so it was the Lenny Clarke show Lennie would host the show 15 minutes. Hit open with 42 you know what you know what I came up with that joke that was my idea because it used to be close if I can host it I can through lines and smoke help in between the guys take it over that guy and it just took off it was great and then you would different different routes to like Calves like I was always working Wednesdays and IP other clubs in when I was going to work a show cause Cafe

► 00:22:12

did not go formation they hated being asking what the fuck it was a hold and I had to learn to adapt to different honey it's just

► 00:22:24

say it was more than just his fucking, he was so sharp he would have punch lines you never saw coming to the top of punchlines you never saw that you were recovering from the last pain so I need to hit you in another one. Yeah it was the first time I saw him he came on and I watched him and I sent a message I I like it but that was my first I might be a fucking life like with competitive you always welcome and one night I was doing a show with him and some guy came on stage behind because coming by Meg Ave jumped over this railing and squatted the guy off and I was pretty good because I got you back and then we drove home to his place but was like 3 days to get my and we've been friends episodes

► 00:23:24

if you could be the richest person or the most famous person what would have been a rather be purchased a frameshift a bunch of bulshit glad you came around to do the nobody knows is Rich Project nobody I mean it's unbelievable I mean to live like that you're not your billion save out of here it's these guys are just like that more money more than that's a weird life yeah we're like everybody else is struggling but no one knows these people are like Anonymous and if more money than you could ever

► 00:24:24

check very clever. That's what this way to go to show up and do clubs and just do a set what's your on-stage telling jokes either they'll probably don't laugh but you're funny you'll kill it doesn't matter if you're famous I would like to I would like to be I like doing this now because it's a different crowd you don't I still do a lot of cuz I work nights Club all the type that got for him but it's back up for me I still go with the flow and then everyone know what I'm going to do I'm just going to go and I try to keep it up with what's happening in the news today and some of those just and I don't want us to have them and I'll bet you can't always happen that's the thing it does happen but it does not block it out

► 00:25:24

no one there walks out worse than the Apollo is the worst that I went with neck with doing some comedy tour us Toronto or something maybe Ottawa and I was looking at them I was hosted I'm looking at him and he didn't smoke at the time it was Benji Club in it look like watching Lenny Bruce it was just like that so unless I step outside and this is what a pregnant woman goes oh my God oh my God I really enjoyed your but he's going to make me go fund he's a funny mother fucker in here he's been going crazy

► 00:26:23

what do you care so crazy so crazy I put a gun and some people put a gun in their mouth with oh yeah yeah yeah yeah

► 00:26:48

fucking animal he's always been glorious every time a little skinny guy to do stand-up but I cuss like he was as it'll bring back in the days playing football. You should on demand night and die they just put any was always angry from the vents and even then I got them is big and it's almost like he made it happen like it was him and Bryan Callen and Epstein from Welcome Back Kotter with play my brothers and the episode after they beat the

► 00:27:48

Academy we all bleed the fuck out of each other up broke bottles overhead Bryan Callen threw me through a window and before the thing was cast I told the producer I said I got this, he's hilarious I go he looks like he could be my brother it looks it looks hiring meals yet perfect so I can see the different ideas she had a friend who she want to wish you were on it so she cast this other guy unbeknownst made a deal with the producer and the showrunner and so they call makeup and tell them that he didn't get the gate find out what happened and you know and she's like well I already hired my friend ago you weren't supposed to hire your friend and she's like well I just you know I don't know what to do

► 00:28:48

simple like the producer wants it the network wants him and so Nick came back and neck. The part you couldn't believe it he's like it worked out for my friend and want to join the show and it worked out but it was like he was convinced he was going to get fucked over he got fucked over and then he's going to be in the shop I love it I love that guy enjoy one you hear stories about people remembering where they came from and to help people up and when I was doing the Sunday comics at Fox and it wasn't a shout-out while I always want to come but when I got some of the troops came home I shall we got cancer that's a whole another different story I want to talk about

► 00:29:47

Twentynine Palms Marine base we pull up in a limo we blow anything up down anything down up and I said I'ma like this place so we going in George Lopez and George Miller a couple of comics to Jeff Altman at least the host and I go to shake his head and he blows me I guess when I have watched while ago so they say I'm going to purple. He's back now and we want an item with his mother in the US that's kind of corny watch out for you I'll do it and so I can write how you doing I miss my family

► 00:30:24

I'm not sure what you told me what I want this what I want so they hire make slime out I pick him up the airport we drive to my place Marina Del Rey to go see which floor is yours I followed me I was incredible should we get jammed up for 3 Days the job it's okay alright we'll go to work you drive to Fox

► 00:31:24

Maury Povich's you suck. You should have been have all these offices synastry couches at Y-3 couch I said when people come over there so I bring Kenny at the meet the producers and I should just come by the office when you're done so 20 minutes later. They told me my job is to make you happy with that show was great show but there was a crazy thing attached to that with your agent that wand up fucking over notches you but a slew of people one guy who was the star agencies that would have went with the fuck was the name of spotlight

► 00:32:24

Lenny and I was making all sorts of money they said you need an agent I said I want Seinfeld and linas age at you and at the same time he was doing both of them and he screwed them but they got their money back I was like the lowest guy in the totem pole so I can identify $2000000 Jesus will try to keep you from killing me I want I thought it was kids went to school and everything to put the you can't do that video Let It Go but it took a long whatever happens I know it didn't get the memo Fox it was I was I was I was so pissed cuz I have the show but when I went there everything was going good and I invited Barry Diller to epoxy was the head of Fox at the time

► 00:33:24

Lee said okay so later in the night this song Asian man came up to me I should have Everyone likes you but I don't get it to stick around I'm saying you'll catch you on she's a bad I didn't think I see how it the next morning I shouldn't they give me a made out of bonus and they raised my my weekly salary I'm it was a lot of money like over two million bucks and I was going to Dallas to do the tech deck Texas State Fair with one of the Mandrell Sisters not not early and the other one is just some crazy name and I land in Dallas and he calls me said I got good news and bad news did you have a problem with a Chinese guy last night

► 00:34:24

► 00:35:10

wash my clothes out of control and wiped out and did you get that but that was that was in the box that's crazy from one conversation where guy said he didn't like you how about this I'm at GPS and it was doing good and then the other Gulf War came out that that that killed me and then they brought me back and we were hanging on by a thread and they said listen forget about the show we think you're a great actor let's give you a a movie deal and really it's the first picture 2 million dollars and then the next picture of May by Daughtry picture deal is that one question I'm making believe I'm having fun with you I might get out

► 00:36:11

► 00:37:04

driving home, what did you do

► 00:37:11

I said you were pretty inactive but you got to get off the drugs I said I was serious for the spot

► 00:37:23

that's hilarious my God that's crazy that's a problem with people that have so much power they want you to suck their dick every second of the day and as soon as is any deviation at all I think you're oh you think you're smart ass that you're done in this town sleep with women ever get that I had a woman told me she wanted to fuck me but she was hideous and it was at 9 in the morning and get that job she's a Christ

► 00:38:23

bang all these like a sad little actor guys she was always a little sad actor guys look all squeamish and chitty bang them all to get these guys part and she said she was she was aggressive it's not what I want thing is though there's no victim there like nobody feel sorry for those guys at all not even for a second a guy that fucks a lady with a casting director hey we want to do it's like it's a such a different thing than a guy being casting agent that fucks the actress what would you want to do you know how bad is that

► 00:39:23

I retired from acting so I thought I'd like to see what it's like no wonder how much different it is how much it's changed in a shot at the club do you know after his statement that he called me up and said do you mind if I do a spot and I thought about eyes I should have no problem. I like Lewis did a convicted of anything and so I put them in he did fantastic and the backlash was just unbelievable I go how long is enough what does this guy have to do to try to get his career back up what is the backlash though because the backlash is not your actual customers right the grab some female Comics at work and that I'm working for me and they said that Mike lock the doors and put a sexual predator on stage and I was like

► 00:40:23

they're enjoyed Louis and you know I'm just trying to help a friend get a shower and give me your number he didn't give me an I know that's what I told him I said so himself that was the problem they just happen to be in the world but I said you could have jumped off and put me as long as you're going to my shirts with my shirts pretty expensive job still has a lot to that story would make him look very different and why these people that are accusing them and one day I think he's going to tell us what he had a conversation with him about it it's it's not as cut-and-dry is everything out and start

► 00:41:22

sex talk it was it was a lot going on it wasn't that simple and he's very very end he hadn't done anything like that and more than a decade it was a long time does that make weird faces that I know you don't like if you were in the ocean and you could be in the ocean on a on a fucking surfboard and you just catch this little tiny wave and everything's fine or you could fuck up and be in the right spot when that giant wave, and slams you in the head and you have the same intention in the same person and other in other times in history he would have been fine he might would probably be fine today because everything is kind of this enough of the feet

► 00:42:22

females that have come out that have been full of shit like Asia Argento and the girl has Chris Hardwick and Chris Hardwick released all these text messages that show that she actually cheated on him and she wanted him to punish him for all this but these there's a few of those situations now where people realize what this definitely sexual predators is definitely bad men and women were taking advantage of this movement and I think the world is sort of like calm down a little but the Asia Argento. One was a big one you know when Chief it turned out that she was calling Harvey Weinstein a rapist while she was fucking a seventeen-year-old right but she was she played his mom in the movie 10 years ago when he was 7 it's like Jesus Christ how could you how could you have that kind of hypocrisy but there's a lot of that in them people that are the screaming for attention is in front of line of a lot of these things a lot of them have like dark secrets themselves

► 00:43:22

want a guy like glue to have a road Redemption they don't want them to work or you going to cry like Aziz Ansari which is even worse he had a bad date with a girl and a bad date where she blew him like three different times and didn't want to keep going that sounds pretty good to me it's pretty good. It's like there's more than one side to every story like that and to take someone's opinion or someone's perception of something as 100% the actual event that happened without any other evidence seems kind of crazy I mean I don't think I just I just think people have to recognize that Louie in particular he's been out of work he was out of work for 10 months lost all the shows why I don't think he didn't suffer from that 30 million dollar that you didn't suffer crazy

► 00:44:22

so what are you saying you should be able to stand up clubs now in a lot of clubs and it's on YouTube so now all that material has to Chuck away so he was he was going on but not performing new shitt it's got some goddamn holes in it right right no way comes up I never written a bit ever maybe one or two in my whole career that was the it was the finished bit when I first did it on stage to ever throw a monkey into it and sometimes you have ideas you like why the fuck that even try that one time like the Parkland shooter bit like that wouldn't he was doing that

► 00:45:22

Club hear it and then it would have been someone didn't take that offensive didn't shit on those kids in the same way I was before a cell phone that I didn't know I was thinking all don't go that don't do that someone definitely should have said absolutely delicious display my dad I have no I want people to spend 30 40 bucks to go out and have me pick them up I ruined your night with your wifey a date now exactly

► 00:46:22

it's just so Jo I can remember back with you and Mike McCarthy it was like who could work the dirtiest you guys would be in the back just died that were nice if we can walk to step on my Garmin one night I was feeling great and I said what does you should come it's not to try to win them back for the back of a poppy right the fucking face and I did I want them when I have to stay

► 00:47:22

it took me 45 minutes just to break even

► 00:47:34

well that's amazing in Orlando this guy just and I fucking hate and that's the Machine Boston Orlando you gave me the best true true I guess atleti comes over him

► 00:48:34

I've seen everybody I just want when I started doing comedy but 41 years old it was only a hundred comedians maybe in the whole country I would fly to that town to go on stage and said let's get out you don't you know I would like to see what it is you know you're getting from those live audiences have seen I seen those YouTube

► 00:49:17

birthday to drop people out to the club and you know develop an act but you either can do it if you don't tell Jerry Seinfeld one side very famous with it if you're famous you advise you 30 seconds by 230 seconds of summer crop happy you there I'll give you 30 seconds after that like okay so I think he's got he's got new material he looks good to eat healthy and then they have a shortcut

► 00:50:17

they make funny videos on YouTube but they said they'll get a crowd even though they're not really funny but if they put in the work they can pull it off but get it has been done the most courageous guy ever saw was Charlie Murphy Charlie Murphy was essentially a famous open my car right and that's why would he started out hosting it would be him and Donnell and Bill Burr and they would do the shows together and Charlie had never done stand-up buddy of the most famous brother ever made his brother was fucking Eddie Murphy and people saw him on the Chappelle show us and then the guy had balls of fucking steel man I did a 22 show tour with him and he had only been doing comedy for 2 years and I've been doing comedy from 120 and headlining so I would headline

► 00:51:10

Cuz I had met her she was at the Playboy Mansion would sit down with you know I drive over every way to grate fucking show I mean it's not historically accurate like the way they talk it's like they're doing kind of modern stand up but they're doing mod stand up back in those days and the woman

► 02:02:43

didn't exist Like There's No Woman Like mrs. maisel historically took a long time before me she was more Rowdy than Lenny Bruce was in the television show but it shows you what it was like back when people just getting arrested for saying things and it makes you realize like Lenny Bruce that fucking got paid he paid the price and we're all benefiting from him you don't win when I first started there was one book the last laugh that was all that was about, but it was them in the movies and documentaries and I wanted to know as much as I could about all the guys who came before me there cuz I watch remember I saw Alan King to stand up when I'm at the van when it was a fantastic actor him when he's amazing and I get to work with red buttons

► 02:03:43

that came before me I knew every single one of my I started this was before YouTube and sulfide I just read whatever I could find on them and it was I would tell these young kids, I look at the guys who came before you and that not interested at all you know what I saw Gleason Gleason was what I wanted to be I just thought Jackie Gleason was just amazing and I want to be like that guy you know cuz he was incredible and it was people to realize he was a stand-up you know shit and the boxer Gleason hackleton but UFOs do you know that dude

► 02:04:43

he told me the story and I don't know if it's true but the story was that Gleason was friends with Nixon and Nixon said you want to see some shit Nicks and took him to wire a 51051 I think was Hangar 18 which is at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base things outside of Columbus Ohio UFO that and Glisan build a replica or how to wrap pack of it built in his fucking backyard in New York wow Homestead Air Force Base outside of Miami it says I got a bullshit version of it from a guy in a band give me some book on UFOs you tell me about this and but the Jackie Gleason

► 02:05:43

what were it I mean that you are so shows and I've been around the world and every time I thought I was in

► 02:05:54

off the coast of turkey someplace in the commander of Base took me out for dinner after that and I got them about Area 51 got stolen so there's this conversation never happened

► 02:06:13

I had to take a cab to find a way back to a new face that that no one knows about how long ago that was with these guys in the Air Force and they should Miami really like show with banjos. I got too drunk I just emailed about Area 51 and a good night and I walked away so now me and Mike a golfing buddies Blue Angels and because you're going to ask me go no second gear week off with them again I guess I fell asleep tell me about Area 51

► 02:06:48

well I was flying a plane and I have malfunction title in there and they came out and a pretty much blindfold to me took me into a building and they fix my jet within 35 minutes and then put me back unless you were never here and I want oh my gosh I don't know what's out there was an area where they were testing all sorts of military equipment they were testing different new like that's where the B-2 stealth bomber and the spy plane they were tested so there was a lot of good stuff there I didn't necessarily happy aliens I understand that but I'd love to go but you can't even if you drive up there by the time you get your camera out there on get out of it will lock you up you know it's it's not good

► 02:07:48

don't even go there anymore they've moved to a new area they've they've actually because it's so heavily scrutinized and because of Google Earth and all sorts of different ways you can see things they actually moved to another area I read I read everything I can fight about that too and I think I read the book Area 51 cup two years ago and basic at the end of the book Hitler had these guys experimented with the Jews and cut and put the rounds on different ways had a had an aircraft that was look like a spaceship and it cracked and his people came out with a crazy stuff that was in the type I don't know if they ever gotten off the ground or what the deal was but the most interesting stories the story of Robert Lazar Bob Lazar who is a guy who worked at Area 51 he got fired because his wife is cheap

► 02:08:48

and they were recording all of his phone calls and taping all the conversations and they found out that his wife is cheating on me thought that he was going to be emotionally unstable and so they didn't tell him why they just released him so then he brings friends to watch these what he said was were alien crafts that they were experimenting with and they were flying these things around that had some it's super Advanced propulsion system that they were asking him to help back engineer arrested for doing that and when he did that you started talking about it so he's been discredited by a bunch of people but I don't know who's telling the truth he says that they wiped his college records of the new one but people said they went to school with them and he definitely did work for the government but under what capacity who knows but his story is fascinating you know I want to be true for you to hear it you want it to be true that used to fly the team of people that worked at Area 51 from Burbank yeah everyday flying in
