I, the podcast fans, do you lookfriendships, but also humor? Well, you've come to the right place, it'stime for fun, Tattas, that's right: Fun, catchups, Oh yeah, fun, penons, guys! Welcome to the fun catchupspodcast with me, Nick Kappa and my friend Jactus, and we're doing a bit where youcan't guess what emotion we're trying to convey were either really upset or scared or furious, or aroused it's notreally clear what's happening, but this is the bit I guess. Jack is talking faster and getting moreand more out character, which is with a sentence, he's kind of become adisgruntled race horse caller, Oh man, I'm so excited to catch up ayear. Sorry, everybody at this episodes late I had shit into net now take were not happy. I've receivedmultiple death threats, someone through a flaming dog throughmy window, another one yeah we was a have been for all sorts of reasons, butI assume it was because of this when you're out on the town doing asmuch bad stuff as me, you're going to get a few flamand dogs thrown throughyour window, but I told you, I told you to hang up your baseball bats with Bobwire wrapped around them. Put Him out the back, not at the front on displayyeah, that's asking for trouble. People got to know not to mess with me, plus all the photos of all the granniesthat you've murdered. Don't put that out the front it's Halloween. Peopleshould get that it's a joke, the spooky joke man they should be. I just thought thisright now what if the others like we did like a sketcher. It was likesomeone pitching horror movies. You don't know horror movies there like Oh,we should. We should yeah have a have a monster that you can only see whenyou're feeling sad or something like that or it's only in the black and but it's filmed in kind of video cameraquality like all em phones to make it seem real and then there's just one guy.That's going what about a murderer, that just murders, grannies and just old women, just a guy that murdersthem and he's like? Isn't that scary? Like? Isn't it like? Yeah man? That'stoo, that's that's, not horror, that's just kind of disturbing and no onewants to see an old, granny murder and they're like yeah. Well, no one wantsto see anybody murder, but we're murdering grannies like this doesn'tget the like an interesting movie or anythingyeah he he doesn't. He thinks he the morelike visere. It is the more scary it is one of ate movie where I get murdered.That would sear the shit out of me. Yahagi at you go to the cinemas. It'stouch. The movie starts you're there. You don't remember filming anything andyou get shot in the face right away it. What O it out of you? What aboutlike real life murders like we go to a country where you know it's a third worldcountry, there's militias going on and stuff, and we just kind of film that,like you know, child Malitias, like people getting murdered in that andstuff. What do you guys? Think of that and they're like man, that is, that istoo scary and he's like exactly the like? No no man, no one would goand see that yeah. But it's scary. It is weird how like documentaries, are sort of the newhorror movies like it runs obsessed with these true crime, podcast and anddocumentaries and stuff yeah. It's like there's so much more frightening thanactual horror movies, but they're, not because it's not edited like a horrormovie and like it can cut to just a normal person in a room going like Ohyeah. We thought he was a normal guy, the, but he you know I was crazy orsomething like it used it in a way where you it's like, you keep checkingin with reality. So you're, okay you're, like a all right still still just inthe real world, yeah man that that's got like that. One we're talking aboutthe one, my next door, neighbor Americanmurderer, or something like that. Yeah Man, that's yeah! You haven't seen ityet. Have you? No? No, but it disturbed me far more than any any horror movie, the could be a good sketch or somethinglike a true crime documentary. But it's like the most...

...like surreal, high concept, horrormovie, it's like the is Freddy Kruger, the guy that gets youin your dreams or something yeah yeah. It's like a yeah like making a murderer style,serious documentary about the dream, murderers, yeah, yeah, that's great man, yeah! It's likeinterviews with the police chief and stuff. It's like! We want trains tofight crime in a dream, scape, where the laws of physics and time don'tapply. That's just not what we're trained for a man. That's a great ideafor a series or something you should write that down. That is so good yeah,just how the police were dealing with it at the time and really in depth stories. Like I wasout water in the lawn, and I received a call and Karl said you better come downhere, I said what are we got and he said I said I said to my wife. Isaid you take over water in the lawn I got so I got down there around three thirtyand it looked like to me that it was just another murder right. It was morethan that it. It was a dream. They said it was in a dream. I put downmy Berito and I was like God, Damn sorry I got to mention. I picked up aBerito on the way, I'd stop to check my phone and so verydo that looked good and I was a little hungry after all that garden and anyway I dream. By now I had neverheard of been murdered at it like now. I haveall sorts of dreams. You see just the other weekend I dreamed I was playinggolf with my cousin, Arnold and Arnold on the seventeenth hole turned into aferocious bird. Now I don't know why that would happen.I had a bird when I was a pet as a child. It did fly away from me and I believeI've had deep abandonment issues ever since, but now why would that relate togolf and my cousin I'll now that I couldn't tell you yeah? They was bringing another gut, sothey bought me in they bought me in, and I thought I hadsome history with clairvoyancy and dreams. I was also a policeman, so theywanted my opinion on it and I yeah just different murder, like youknow the guy, the Jason Dude in Friday, the thirteenth with the chain so andthe yeah lucky mask or whatever it look like she'd, been murdered with a tansauce. I had never seen anything like this O yeah. That's great man, yeah, that'sreal good yeah! That's like weirder and weirder horror movies. Just like Ye,the chief told me he'd been eaten by ghosts. Now it a ghost want to eat a person. That's what Iwant I want saw men get ran by a buffalo,but that was up until then. That was the craziest thing I'd ever seen in mylife, and then I saw her man getting eaded by a ghost, and I was like whoatimes of changing. You know: Yeah, that's good man! Now man, we've got, we've had a brake or we'vehad a break through. It's not a big break through, but it break through tous. Well, last last week you said we were walking by the river. We had alittle catch up had a little catch up off air sorry fans Yan that one was exrated. It was just all catchup offaire, all X, rated material.It is yeah, real is confessing the crimes, the faming people with biglegal teams, just the we did ever Don the part it is. Ah It is some real yeah. Iwouldn't even want the granny murderer. Concept got to know about the shitwe're talking about. Actually, whenever we get lead intoconversation, it's always about granny MEDOR straight up off her yeah, I'msick of it. It's not a good, I think on friendship, but you gotta yeah t roll with it. I guess it's niceto mean an we put on the podcast for our sponsors that we don't have yeah, so men excited we made be skerdlast week when we're walking by the river. You came up with this great ideaand I said that's ready to go. That's ready to go jack and put it up. I was thinking we play that if you canjack, I don't know if you can insert the audio from the clip in here, I could do. I should just pop it in thegroup I reckon and then, if yeah yeah, we'll pop it in the go that yeah, ifyou're, not in there already doing the fun catchup, Pat Facebo Group,...

...fun, Catcher, podcast, Face Book Groupor follow Jack's Instar M or his face wool page it's on there and yeah, it's just catching up aftercatching up in lock down or something like that. Well, what are we called thetitle man? I think it was called just like just like ground hog day, justlike grand og day and man. I got a lot of good comments on the video o greatyeah, Yeah Yeah. I think it was like its avery short thing. It wasn't like a yeah. You know like a particularly groundbreaking thing to do, but I think I was saying to you before we started it kindof meant a lot to me because it was like I just like the swiftness of itlike we just had the idea filmed at the next day, edited at that same day putit up, and it was like just kind of t e the motive operating that I've alwayskind of wanted to be in. I think like when stand ups on or whatever you gettoo focused on that or you get it's easy to get like yeah, so lost anotherproject and stuff, but I feel like just in terms of a great way to spend a dayand make something. That's what I like. That's my ideal. I think you just likehave a great idea film it with your friends. Bang it up great time. What'snext, like I really like doing that, yeah man yeah, it was so good and I hadI had fun, making it an what you what your work now you've got a great little sound, a little sound bug that you can pin onyour your clothes. You got like your cameras and the only thing I'd say that weneeded to fix was man. I should have body called you on this. I was, I think Iwas facing a bit too downwards on your face. So were God yea more level, butthat was. I only noticed that in the adit but a but also men, because it's simple, Ithink a lot of your sketches. You started off with they had a lot of elements and it'shard to make it look professional when you got all these elements to edittogether, whereas, like you edited that you onlyhad a few elements, just two guys talking to each other by the river andtherefore it looked really professional yeah totally. I thought it was going tobe a lot harder than it was to edit a conversation that looked like fluid,but it was actually pretty fine and easy, and I can not really Hollywood.Editors should should be embarrassed. She reported the Druce Yeah. Theyshould not quilain such a big deal about it. No, no askers for editing, Ireckon they should be paying minimum wage and they should be they shouldhave to edit for free and they get to sleep on the studio floor would be mywhat I think how easy it is yeah. So that's good man. I was thinking yeah we had shit in and that I wasn'table to do it this week, but I was going to administer a challenge to you or me that we wouldmake another one, but the weather is terrible. Today we can't really filmbut to make another one this week, some time we're not going to rush yeah, it'sno good, we're not going to put it out like that's not if the idea is notstrong enough, but soon as we get that feeling that there's a good one on theway we just do it yeah man, I love that yeah yeah, so I was trying to think ofsome more ideas. Just two of US talking is good, but we should try and makethem even just a tiny bit add something a little bit to it. Eachtime yeah yeah, I think that's the key yeah graduate like we sort of did allin one location, then maybe next time, two locations yeah after that, like ason explodes or some sort of big E, we have a space battle. Yeah I'd like I'dlike a T, one thousand type effect Rome off into something else, would bereally. I called the guy about getting a stunt tiger, so we could have the we could do the one.I don't know I whether we've discussed on the podcast yet is the meeting ofthe dice men. We could film that one next yeah, I don't use yeah. How does that play out in yourbrain, because I was reading this book called the dice man, it s like a famousbook, where a guy bases his life and us the the role of the dice, and it wasjust a it's just funny like a character. I feel like like we're wearing shadesand leather jackets talking about being dice men yeah. Once in a centurymeeting of the dice man, I write some man yeah, I wrote some. I wrote somenotes, maybe okay, so maybe you're standingnear a cliff of some kind or whatever yep or a waterfall and which we have access to. We do haveaccess to a waterfall and you're just standing there, maybe throwing up a dice or something orplaying with a dice,...

...and then I walk up next to you, maybe,and you and I'm playing with a dice, and you go a fellow diceman. I fellow dice men. So you live the life of a randomizeddice man do you, but we should have a whole bunch of different names for eachother. Like like a fellow diceman, a brother of the dice, I was like amember of the Cube Fraternity. Is it yeah? I, a brother of the dice is good as well abrother of the DIS, yeah yeah, so that so you go. Oh Yeah, afellow ice man. Did you come here? Did you come in? Did you see the ad for themeeting of the dice man? You go no. I came here because the dice told me to and then the guy who didn't say that,maybe I say maybe I say I came here because the dice told me to and thenfor in you think in your head. Like you, don'tsay that lad goes God damn it. I should have said that yeah. I should have saidthat and then I've got a big, bigger dice inyou. My my dice is quite big yeah and then you go it's quite a big dice. Yougot there and I go yes. It is the dice told me to pick this size orsomething like it, and then you go, but it's not the sizeof the dice. They tell you play it and then I go if it hits for I'll killmyself, you go really. You play a big. You play,you roll the dice, you talk the talk, but can you roll the dust diced man and then it hits the for and then Ikill myself and then you go God, damn it. That's the best dice manthat ever lived what a waste yeah. I like the I like the framework,a lot I like that ending. I feel like it's just a lot of we could. We could really fill up themiddle with a lot of a lot of dice man, Shit Yeah. If we'vegot A, I think if we all have note books and we're like writing out whatthe different things mean. Yeah like all right, one to a five, I'm GOIN TA improvise alove song about squirrels. But if I get a six I gotta move backhome yeah I roll yeah, yeah that'd, be great man yeah.We got to write out a list of things to to do, and then I I we have to swap kidneys at one point were all at three, so we have to dothis like rough, like Bush surgery and just yeah me, that's great yeah yeah and I liked it. I like that we do. Wejust don't, have it back and forth like that, those little one percent thingslike you thinking in your head, like God damn, and I should have said thatthat that you, let me hear in your head, you know, though it would be good yeah,so we could do that when next the hardest thing is. I want us, I want you know when I killmyself when I jump off, the t is jumping into the lake, would you would I jump in the lake andthen just go over the waterfall or something like that? Is that contentingenough like I wanted to look good? You know. I think I want it to be like I'moff yeah. That's that, like a if you, if you have a big jacket and you fillit with rocks or something, and then you walk into the into the river. I yeagreat great great, though yeah, how much of comedy writing inthis time and history is just brainstorming. Suicides. Yeah E, like this, wasn't, wasn't an issuefor Milt Brooks, but we got to be like all right. It's the funniest way.Someone can kill themselves. We get together with all of our mates thathave lost all of their money due to Ovid and comedy and they're like. Sohow would you guys want to kill yourselves in a sketch and they're like?Well? I already have a list. He Yeah. I already have a pre prepared list. I guess there a memor tweet er,something that I really liked. It was like isle, horrible, antiquated boomercomedy, and it's like. I want to kill my wife. It's like edgy cutting edgemillennial comedy. I want to kill myself hyeah great well, I rekon we can off off Mike do a bit of writing up ofthe dice man and then film that or...

...something else this week would be goodyeah, yeah man, yeah. I've got a couple of kind of stand up, beats that Iwanted to run by you. I don't know once more of a funny month more of a funny thing. I did someconstruction work during the week. Yeah you've been I'd, love to hear aboutthis because you went out of the city, which sounds sounds like nothing, butthat's been yeah still illegal for the average person. But you got me somework out in Bendee yeah. I got some work out regional, it was great, it wasyeah, I know yeah and it was. It was cool like to goout and do that, but the I was I don't know there was this oldman like. I was working in this house and there was this old man and we'reall kind of you know having a break we'll have weare at this sit? It was so weird man when you have smoke during coved like abreak you're, all just sitting apart with marks on, like a crate, so it'slike the biggest circle you've ever seen, but everyone was talking storiesand talking about snap chat and kind of new age stuff whatever and then there'sthis one old man up the back and I could tell he was kind of lost and hewas felt left out. So I thought it involved him in the conversation goHammad. Where are you from what are you doinghe's like I'm from me or whatever, and he he then he told me worked in old foundry and Isaid Oh yeah, and he told me something he told me a lot of facts that werevery boring, very boring about the foundry and then I said Yeah youwouldn't have had. I didn't know what to say to that. Like I didn't knowanything about making molten metal and a foundry or anything. So I said, ohyou wouldn't have had much workplace safety back then he got no no suchthing and then just went into detail about how many men have died in thefoundry that he worked in and then the ways that they died. Like a good twentyminutes and didn't stop justus like told me, one that a bloke got a blokewent down to check something and then he fell in the and then they had to crane him out andjust buried him like like Han Solo and star wars like they had to cut the Ikotand then crane the body out of the and then just dump it in the groundlike a brick with a man in it. Jesus Christ yeah, and he told meanother one. Now he fell in them, how another man fell in the pot and hewas trying to swim out, but he's torso had been totally burnt like he hadnothing from the bottom, and I was like a man this. This is whyno one talks to this guy yeah like went out his chest. Did he you on snapchat old man yeah? I Tak yeah and then now then later on, theytold me that he's he was a Christian Bok and his wife cheated on him withanother with her boss or something, and then he went back to the wife and all right. That's that's all he'sgot his stories about the foundry yeah you're, like life, did not go wellfor this guy. You know a tellus issue for company. You knoweveryone else was like D. do not ask Terry about the foundry. What are youdoing cap do not ask about the fall man yeah. They kind of gave me that. Looklike don't start him up. You know like and you you do. I remember feelingbecause I don't know I guess my grandmother had dementia and I used tosee when she was out of. I don't know when she was when shelooked a kind of, I guess out of conversation, and I justfelt so sorry for her, and I do I I have this weird thing where I seesomebody not in a conversation and I have to make him feel welcome. You knowI have to talk to them and sometimes that's a detriment. Definitely to mypersonal, because some of those people are like yeah just shut up. I want tojust listen, okay, yeah, but I think it's a very good.It's a very good trait, like just as a human being, it's very considerate, butI think it's also like really good for for doing stand up like I think youhave so many great bits or stories that, like emerge from just people, people open up to you and just tell youthe craziest Shit, because you like will to talk to him and want to includehim and stuff yeah yeah it is. It is good. You know Imean yeah, it does come from compassion to start with, but then the year doesbecome material which is profitable for me. Yeah I exploit you, do a in the long run asyou storing around the nation roasting them to strangers a and for the sake ofthis podcast yeah, I'm compassionate,...

...but really once we turn the MICO. Itell the real story. I just want to drain these fucking guys of their ideasand mosquito of fucked up conversations. That's what I am I'll drive back toBenda go and throw that old man in the molten pit, myself yeah but yeah. It was just so I don'tknow, I don't know what makes it I don't know if there's anything funny inthere just at this bloke, I don't know I just I want to keep it because youknow you often get this. We stand up and I get it to is there's just thesestories that just float around your head and one day they all connect andthe great thing about this podcast is, you can address them, go okay. This iswhat I I don't know what's funny about this,but I got a just tell it. You know yeah yeah and I hadn't one other idea. Manand I need I need. The jactor is communication skills with it is I I was like with these two guys and wewere driving into this bunnings right and we're driving in this big bunnings,and they were just two big construction worker blokes and one of them said like there were. There were two blocksin front of US sorting out some timber and one of the one of the guys in the car said.Sometimes I feel like this pinning this roddle and just fucking running intothese guys, just pinning them up against the wall like against histimber, kill them both who you in the car with sorry, I justthe two blocks. I was working for right, yeah and yeah. The driver guy goes what, if Ijust pin this riddle and just pin these guys up against the timber and killthem both, then the other guy goes man. If you did that, you'd want tokeep going after that, just you know, kill as many people as youcan before you get caught. You know just drive through the whole bunningsjust plown everybody down, and I thought I thought this is whatcapitalism does to people. They just want to get value for money out ofeverything, a right. That's so funny yeah. You knowa man like if you're going to kill somebody for fun you and you're goingto go to jail. You get some get a good bargain. You know like yeah. It's likeyou want to get your money's worth every time, yeah yeah, maybe that's what Martin Bryant onlyjust wanted to kill one person, but he's like oh well in for a penny. I guess youknow like maybe it's just a bargain save guy yeah. I was trying to link in something manthinking. Something with that I need find funny. Is that kind of a psycho killer is thekind of guy like a guy that does a massacre he's the kind of guy thatalways gets the two for one bargain at the service station? Whenever someonegoes or you can, you know you can buy another son Yikes for seventy senseslike all right, while I'm here might as well get to yeah like he didn't, hedidn't go in there wanting US nicked and that's that's the mark of apsychopath. It's the mark of you know who's goingto be the most dangerous out on the streets. If a guy buys a snickers and then theguy behind the the cast register goes offers him a good deal like Oh forthirty cents, you can get two big ones he's like no, you go, ah that guy wouldonly kill one person yeah an obviously someone with like two pairs of servicestation sunglasses that you got to just run like they're, the most anyone atCosco psycho killer. Yes, I give you getting a catering pack of laundrypowder, that's a big son yea, a person's in for a penny and fora pan. You know yeah, because anyone anyone could just killone person, you never know who's going to be a solo killer. Yes, it's does. Bargain hunters yeah reallygot to watch out for yeah. I forget what I said in that line, butI'll listen to this again and the way I originally said. I think Isaid that's what capitalism does to people they just want to. Ah, I can't remember exactly just wantto get the money's worth out of everything yeah, something like that.Okay, great all, right! Well, I think that's kind of ready to go. You know, Ithink the yeah, I think the great I can elaborate on that like what we'retalking about at the moment, but also, I feel I feel something like that is funny in Ithe first place,...

...just the guys saying: Oh yeah absolutely and then it's like you don't want to you, don't to play to stereotypes toomuch or whatever, but I think it's like. I think it's very funny to me just likeit's. The first time you've left like people have this image of Melbourne is beingthis like real kind of like soft, lefty, P C sort of bubble, which you know andthen it's just funny. The idea of like you've been locked in Melbourne formonths and then the second you leave Melbourne. It's just straight away.Like yeah, I was thinking a killing these two fucking books, then I'll justkill everyone. I step out o O it's just like people, flooding Masseran like me, I,like boiled up in the foundry accidents and stuff like it's. The most like I've,been a VENTEGODT's, so lovely like the nicest place in the world, but like just the contrast that you leaveMelbourne for the first time and your straight into like Mad Max foundrydisasters and Shit Yeah, that's the thing man and like yeah. That is such agood point, is to elaborate on. This is like. Where were H, where you know inMelbourne, a lot of us don't have backyards and stuff and we're in theselittle cooped up places where, as they've got pools and big backyards,and man caves and sheds and stuff, and and that's what happens when you gettoo much space the world, your oyster, then you get no limits. You got nolimits on anything yeah how they were just too focused ongetting to a slightly nicer suburb to put any energy into mass murders. Themoment yeah the Nice place yeah all down here when it takes you more than a couple ofhours to mow your Lawn Youre, your invincible, ten yeah. You got enough time to reel wellon your thoughts on your big lawn, also, the fact that the blow didn'teven like laugh or anything he just backed him up on it he's like yeah yeah and not even to like, because I getwell. You know I give my around with your friends or whatever, but it's afunny that you're you're, like a guy, that don't really know that well andyou're in the car as well and they're like yeah. I just want to do a murderand then like no laughter, no, no chuckling or anything. It's like yeahman. You should do more motives, yeah yeahand they loved it. They like knew, I was a comedian and they they thought.It was great that I was there and I don't know it was weird they were kindof like. I was working for them, but I was still I guess they were just sokeen to find out. People are interviewed on the PODCAST, you knowlike Andy Lee or Iris Safe. They were like Oh wow. What was it like meetingthose guys and stuff like that? Yeah and but I've got like some yeah, I was gonna say: You've got like some fucked version of Cameo, where yeah you're like celebrity appearance, butyou also have to do like physical labor for them as well man. That is a greatidea. I hope Cameo is more, is more popular, because I wonder ifit's popular enough yeah to for people to get the factversion of came, that's great man! Well, you get to pay a bit to see it Kape,but he also that's a week's worker landscaping for you, yeah yeah, yeah. That's so funny! That's th! That's realgood, but yeah that W that were happy that I was there. But when the dude said that he's likewell, you might as well while you're there you got to keep going, you know, get yourmoney's worth or whatever or, and I just cracked up laughing like Iwas laughing hysterically yeah like you know, I hang out with comedians a lotand stuff, but that's the fun. That's one of the funniest things I've heardin a while. You know yeah, but is like these conceptionslike a man, it's so cool anyway, yeah so yeah. There was a couple ideas,maybe what you got anything this week yeah. I love that I live here and likeactual things that have happened, so a a things can wait to talk to people andthings happen again and be crazy, be like you noticed that with herwriting, like, I think all my writing, when I was getting ready for comedyfestival and at the start of the year, it was all like this happened. I didthis and I thought this and you know, and then it's like now, you're writing. It's all just like...

...what. If a Pelican became the king,it's just like everything is going to be so silly and my a well. I had an idea that I was talkingto our friend Angis, Gordon, about that Ithought could be fun and maybe easy enough to film. I don't know, but like it's basically like a, I think the premise is it's, it's tough,but you got to remember to Call Your Dad. You always got to give you that acall. You know it's not not always easy to talk to him on the phone, but you'vegot to people. Put it off, always call your dad and then e thing is like it. Maybe it's people talking to eachother about how they got to remember, to call their dad and then yeah, it'slike an ad or something or it's like corn. YEA can be tough. We know whatit's like, you're sick or talking to that Same Old Dad, but now with DileDad. You can talk to a fresh dead every time, and so it's a call service whereit's connects different dads with different sons. So it's like, we got all sorts ofdifferent DADS. It's like a discreet Dad's sons on thefront of the dad is like how you doing dad you're right. That is none of mybusiness like beds in cars, and it's like. I can't hear you, you don't needto yell. Just just call me when you get home. I can't hear you it just call me.I don't lay it at please yeah what it's just a he's, a few more dadideas- I don't know, but then it's like the other side. Is It's a dad on the phone it's like plus,if you're a dead, we can connect you to fresh new suns. Every day, successfulsons you can be proud of dead, beat sons. You can take out your anger onsporting hero sons. So in many ways it's just like you're, a sporting hero,Ye some sons with hobbies. You can't reallyrelate to, but you're doing your best and then it's the that is on the phone.It's like how was the raid son? Did you get any good loot, a magical axe,bloody ell? That's all right! GOBLIN forged now we're talking yeah and it's just that's what I got. Basically, oh, myfavorite one was unwind after a long day with a whale dead, and then it'sjust you're talking on the phone, but it's just like that. Soothing whalenoise coming at the other end for some reason. Man. I like this, youknow the one who the hobbies he doesn't understand he's like Oh mine, craft.Her that reminds me of my days of ultimate Frisbee. Yeah sounds a lot like white water, rafting yeah man, that's great, and I thoughtyou could also have. After the successful Sun thing, you could have successful sons that still aren't goodenough. Yeah Yeah, that's great! Well, if you're, a real man, you wouldhave built the extension yourself Y, a I have to pay someone else yeah. I love that it's one of thoseit's like. We talked on the. I think, the last part about how you got to bring another elements. Idon't want it to just be like a big list again yeah, but I think the I think, if I really dig into like thethe idea that this is a this is a real business that you can just call up and beconnected to a different, dad or sun each time, yeah yeah that one of the DADS could be daddylong legs and the sun is just like good. I dad catch any good bugs. Today. You have a cool dad he's like hey theheavy. You were in sunglasses and you guys Yep, that's it yeah, it's got cool dad. Is it sunny outside Nope Nope, dad you riding a holly? No, why not? She took it? No, because I'm on a jet Ski, a Yeah Man, that's great! That's realgood! I was I was trying to think of something men. I was listening to the Conan O'Brienpodcast with Rory Scovel, Oh yeah, and I do the same episode. Sorry, I'veheard the same episode so I'll be I'll, be able to yeah relate, and Ithink that you and I have got to think...

...of cool things. We can do in stand uponce it comes back yeah, so just like tricks we can play on each other orsomething or tricks we can play in the audience. So for those who don't know,look it up on you tube, there's some great rorison moments where he and JohnDoor. They get conoor an to say that that he's double book to stand up backto that night. So John DOE and Roy scovil just do theirsets at exactly the same time, but they're totally to two different comedysets and they just stick to the bit for five minutes. So the audience is justseen two comedians at once and it's just fucking hilarious and it goes forway too long and I live and Conan introduces it so yeah so convincinglythat it almost seems like they did double book, and it's just one of those one of those great standup, comedy moments that I'd completely forgotten about that. I will watchagain yeah. I thought exactly the same thingit it's like you get you get so trapped in the same patternsare doing stuff, but yeah like he does stuff. Like he's the best, he has thebest youtte comments of any comedian. He let you see comedian outie comments,and it's like that bit was funny even for any Roy Scovil outur comments. It'slike man, I saw him in Texas last week end. He did the whole set in a Germanaccent. He didn't mention it once he's the king. He did forty mints like it's always like they're, like man,I saw him in a casino and Memphis. He was lying on the floor squirming aroundlike a pig yeah and you. He also taught me somethingman that maybe you thought of as well is you might have liked as well as like.Sometimes in comedy you do go, you do write a joke and you go well that Udwork or is rather you just thinking thatit's funny like a all yeah yuks, it shouldn't work. You know, I mean it should just be funand yeah. It's the weirdest thing I thinkin in like TV writing, room things not thatI've been in them a lot but like or in many different ones. But it's like yousee that where it's like yeah, you there's an idea and people are justlike Oh yeah, that would that would work. I guess yeah, that takes theboxes of what comedy is like you're writing code or something it's likeyeah yeah that'll be fine, yeah yeah, but put the stupid fuck who want towatch this show- and I like it's just this weird like yeah. If you're dumbenough to think this is funny, then we should be fine, so yeah D d. Did youlaugh yeah? That's a thing! That's what makesme annoyed, sometimes you're like whoo. Sometimes when I write some like. WouldI laugh at this? There was a time when I don't think I would laugh at thestuff. I was doing yeah yeah. You know there still is andyou are doing your little Clinton and personations yeah. I did not have six with this warmin that rocks actually that it's a warm man, just like the weirdestbut like you've, never heard Brooklyn to talk not to have sex with this woman yeah. This a guy is mine and I smoked at Yeah Yeah. So yeah I was thinking trying tothink a bit man. I was trying to think of a bit right where we were they weretalking about in this podcast. where- and I think I was talking talking aboutthis with Mike Goldstein and my other podcast phone hacks on our patronepisode- We're talking about Africa, toto the band they open up a set withAfrica, and often they close the set with Africa as well the song, because it's such a big song,they just open it up and go all right. Well, the crowd loves it so much. Let'sjust do it again. I've heard that the eagles play likeHotel California, like five times in a crazy like that, see that's, and I was thinking ofstating that example so opening up with like a joke thatworks right, yeah that a yeah I know I just went again to what I said, but youknow I joked it. You know and your classic open or a guess and going nowguys, I'm not going to lie to you. That's my best joke yeah, I'm going to do a lot of fill in ourwhat ever some other jokes, some jokes...

...you'll find hilarious, but I'm probablygoing to close with that joke again, just in case the last joke doesn't gogood, so you might, even if you enjoy that one you'll probably hear it again, then that's what I do it towards theend of the set. Do it so it sounds exactly the same andpersist then maybe finish it off differently orsomething. Well, I like that what you said. I might do it again. If the lastjoke doesn't go well or something like. I think if you really emphasized thatand you're like I, you know, I've got a one that could bea closer, but if that doesn't go well, I will go back to that one because Iknow it works and then you get to the whatever some other joke later in theset, and you listen to the response it getsand then you sort of like have a real moment of decision and you like take abig breath of you all right and then go back and to thefirst joke what a Yaet yeah yeah, that's great mate, yeah they,let's you could kind of do a bit of a Stewart Lea thing where you like at thebeginning, you're like. If I have to do this joke again. That'll be that'll, beyour fault. You know yeah. If you guys are a good crowd, the MC isgoing to say you're a good crowd, but if you're really a good crowd, yeahthat'll be the last time you hear that joke, because the rest of the materialI will go just as well yeah yeah. I think that I think they'llbe real good man yeah, something like that, and then you and I maybe we can do thisfor a project for next time. We try to think of something. That's a bit moreinteractive, Yeah Yeah you and I can both do orsomething I feel like. I'm in this weird, like like mental health kind of likeequation of how much I can allow myself to think about, stand up comedy becauseI think about it a bit and it's like fine and I'll start thinking of ideasand stuff, and then it's like you think about it too much, and then it's justthe neatest in the pit of like when am I going to do, stand up comedy again?What's Goin a what's, what's good of the future going to look like? Is thereeven going to be a society? What are we doing? Why don't it it's so weirdbecause, like the stand up comedy and like Sydney, you know what I mean: YeahEh somebody happening all over the world again, just we're still in thisweird little bubble of like. I think I have completely written it off and Ithink I'm going to make a pack of myself not to do it till not to do it till next year. Yeah Yeah just give a clean, two thousandand twenty right off yeah or maybe not do it till. When did Ilast? Do it before the end of the before the end of the second lock down?Maybe not do it for a year, yeah yeah, that's! Actually that's would be rightbefore the comedy festal starts yeah, Yeah Yeah.
