I, the podcast fans, do you lookfriendship but also humor? Well, you've come to the right place, it's time forfun, Tattas, that's right! Fun! Catchups, Oh yeah, Fun! N! I don't you know, I'm not going to put your plunge down,but I'm going to say it is kind of old yeah, an old style.You know. Well, I admit, I'm sure the airplane is better, but I'm I'm asimple man. You I'm not like a Elon musk pack like you and it's launt, my wealth. It is made of plasticyeah. I don't know if he one musk would approve of this yeah. It's kind of it's kind of coolbecause we're in your room, which is a you know, it's just a bedroom. What asingle guy bedroom looks like yeah, but then it's kind of got this. This plan,O God, I think a man, an a d with a family was, would live in this room. Maybe Amens in you know deep financial,Moil, family, just kind of separated it or the family, always the same clothes,yeah kids wears a size. Thirty, four pence. Honestly, it's we're. Looking for ahouse made at the moment, and so fucking hard with the like coming out, lockd like this rentalmicat is just a nightmare now yeah. So it's like yeah. If a weird cult familyjust wanted a room in this shareholding, I'd be like yeah, fine, yeah, just kepthe the kitchen clean, a great story, Yeah Ein what? If you did somethinglike that, but he didn't even get any stand up out of it. Yes, like fuck,they just stressing me at the old time and you're like so sorry. I'm lay forthe GIG this this family yeah this cold family, that one of the kids regardtated all over the kitchen, while the other ones were saying their prayers,and that would be it because I'd be likethis would a great for material yeah, and I just come in all gun swinginglike what's up with this coke family that lives in my house, and I it wouldjust no one- would either believe me orrelate to it at all, like it's such a unique thing like no, not funny get outof here, Yeah Yeah Yeah. I found that man with my my showI've been you know I was going to do for last year's festival called Tuxedo,traveler yeah. I, though it all man, it's I'm going to get so much stand up outof this, but once your digging, it's not yeah. It's hard, you, it's almost abetter story than stand up, yeah that it's a better story that you can justsit back and relax. Some watch yeah feel stand up in not no one's everfully relaxed the audit hapful, even the bestcomedian in the world, can make the audience file. You have a little bit ofcomfort in a what do that because you got like your, you know. You got your.What is it your controversial Comedians? I guess you got your right wingComedians. You got your your alternative, commandants. What if youhad no chill out comedians yeah, just chill out? They only perform on beachesand s great idea, a yeah. Just like gonna Whale noises. He the full chillakothe like yeah. Don'tdon't worry about luffing or hat just chill out? Don't know if you fine, ifyou want, I don't care. Yeah Yeah Looks Ter, Yo fine, you know it doesn'tmatter, yeah the comedian, like the a type of audience, to see that a veryapology at that was funny. Sorry didn't give it enough. Last at Rio, worryabout it. I feel like ill at that kind of is like, like, like weed comedians.You know like a dog, Benson or yeah, I'm trying to think of who may be amore strained. One would be, but I feel like in America there's a lot of like I guess, Cheech and charing. I don'treally know about it, but like yeah,...

...where the whole whole thing is like hesmoke a blunt chill Ou. Yes me of this, which is so crazy because it's like Idon't know, I'd like I never really smoked weed, but the nips always justassumed that like there was, there must be somethingabout snip, dog or Chichen Chang, or something there's something about whatthey do, that like mixes with this drug. That means like their music is whatthey do is better when you're on this drug yeah yeah and then when I did tryit. It was like. Oh all, music and comedy is better right. Now Ye an Ilike a giggly happy me, so it's just anything is better. Why yeah like snipdog, is just like lucked out so hard. I've been like yeah, like tides brand, to this verypopular product. I think nothing would annoy me more than seeing I mean ifI've done a few gigs with comics that do stone things in a mere and Canadaand stuff, and I don't think anything would annoy me more than performing ina stone a cafe like a yeah. I think it's a it's a thing that you do.You know with a couple of mates or something like I just find it wouldfind it. So I don't know Vasile for the experience yeah banks, I so yeah yeah. If you had to be a comedian who it's like being a stonin comedian, butyou only perform to audiences who do a different drug like you're. Just fun is like the the Cot comedian be pretty good, thenwe pretty aggressive hooked up audience would be pretty sick. Yeah, like you,Colege a lot of heckles like really. Ah, that's true: A lot of talking acts bepretty yeah, but then a lot of concepts. A lot of yeah, a lot of passion towardsnothing, yeah be kind of good as well. If you got if you're able to ride thewave and tame the you know, kind of tame that ocean ofpeople- yeah yeah, of course you know, but they would be very difficult, verydifficult. Yeah. You write men men, so you got to tell us from lasttime we haven't done a recoup of t e the Park Gig. How did itgo? I want great man, I'm the King of the park now yeah. He gave me a bigaward yeah. It was so good yeah, it's so much fun. It was like, like twelvepeople, everyone was cool like I wasn't really stressed about theshow part of it. Just like the getting the beginning of it. I was just likegetting the people all in the right spot andmanaging everyone, but then it was like the weird thing was like actuallystarting the show, because it's like you know at a show, there's like moreof a this context of like. Oh, this is the performer, and this is the show isgoing to start, and this is a stage and the curtain then a microphone wherethis was kind of like all right. It's twelve people on a pike, and now I'mjust going to stand up and talk for forty minutes. Yeno interruptions yeahlike it would have been. If you were a different group in the park. You justsee our group and like what's going on with that one psychopathy, don't letanyone talk dreaming about a rat or something yeah, yeah, so yeah that and but you wereable to get it started and it was fine yeah yeah I mean I listened back tobits of it. It's like I'm so rusty, and just saying just you know, like I'mlike bad, like looking through nuts and looking through. Listening back to yourcomedy is the thing I haven't missed it all that's suck so much but man, I knowwhat you're going through. I listen. I was able you know in there after thefirst wave, I was able to get a recording of my last geek before thesecond wave M, and I thought I'd nailed. This kind of ten minutes said I wasworking on a like I've, nowe it great. I listened to it yesterday I was likethis is so awful yeah run ups that alms and ours. The information that doesn'tneed to be there terrible horrible to listen to...

...yeah. Do you feel like having all thetime away is going to make you better in that respect, because it'slike or you you've, it's like a clean slate with habits. Yeah no mean like ifspeaking in that way and not going or be a set and practicing, it is like abad habit. You kind of just pick up through laziness and you just hangingout at gigs and whatever like Durian. If it starts up again, you'll be ableto be like all right, I'm going to be like precision now, lock it in yeah man,I think so. Yeah Yeah I've got a gig coming up and I really want to plan itout and do it good. I really want to yeah. I want to try and yeah just have a bit of an impact. I doubt I will.I doubt I'll have an impact at all, but I would like to try. I would reallylike to try, rather than just getting up there and doing it. You know I wouldlove if you had like a like blue man group level. Precisionlike it, it's still a small open Mike as gigs and bars and stuff. You've gotlike this full body suit makeup and like choreography, musical bits andbelieve me, man, I've thought about it. I've really thought about it. Yeah. I think it's so hard. It's going to be so hardgetting back into it. I'm kind of dreading it. To be honest. A lot ofpeople are pretty pumped to go out there and do stand up again. Yeah. Ikind of rode off this year, so I'm actually taking it. As I got. I gotasked to do a Gig in wage, so I'm going to drive down there and Icouldn't resist the pay and I was dreading it and I thought fuck, but then the guys like it to abunch of real estate agents that don't know your comedy yeah, so it'll be fineright. I'm like okay! I can just do the classics. I can just do the classics:Fuck Off Yeah. You know I dine that it's like all the realestate egans of Woga and they're, like talking at the break room on the nextday, and it's like I, it was good to see kate you'd think you would be moreexperimental after the lock down yeah, I was listen to the fun catch up an hetalked a big game about this new mask theme. The car bit O an we'd, get tosee that all right, yeah man so yeah- that kind of thingwas yeah. Scaring. That is scary, so yeah we did you did it like forty orfifty minutes was how hard was it to get through to listen to that recordingand go far like it sucks, but it's like I don't know you know you're always going to like hatesomething about yourself. Yeah I feel like. I was because it was a video aswell and I I was wearing like a shirt that was like much too tight onme yeah and I was just focused on that. The whole time like I think I barelylisten to like any changes I need to make in the material or the structure,I'm like what you wearing that shirt. You need a different shirt. You needmore shot as the shrunk in the wash or maybe you've put on a bit of way orsomething just get a different shirt. That's the only actual, like feedback Ihave on the fast man. I read a different shirt. I remember the firstkind of special I recorded. I tried to record this special in Sydney, yeah andyeah same thing. Shirt was too tight and I had this weird gut thing:protruding out, plus sweat, patches, yeah, and it here was some good bits inthere that I could have cut up and used online, but just shirly from the way. Ilook it it's terrible yeah so, and I guarantee you no one other than us in both these situations,whatever notice or comment or anything. But it's just in your head, like when,when I was on tonight Ly, is like the only TV thing. I've done in foreverreally to stand up, and I was wearing, like a you know like a button up like aproper nice shirt for it hm and I've never had any like difficultytucking my shot in before in my life like it's, never never been a problemfor M. Yes, if I want to Tuck in my...

...shirt, I just do it no worries yeah,and it was like that, like all right, gone rolling inlike ten nine and I'm like. Oh my shuts a bit on tack. I just Tuck it in, andit was like the bit after the bottom button, where it's like the shirt kindof flaps out yeah taken on some crazy angle or something, and I couldn'tTuckit in Prim I kept like having to like readjust. Then it was like thelike mass account down of like six five four I'm like and the like, liveaudience as well as just watching me just trying to Tuck in my shirt andjust failing somehow like this, like a weird gap where the the bottom of itshould be that it isn't and that's like any time I watch the tonight. I thinkit's like there's always this like this weirdlittle like shirt lump right above my back yeah O, my God, my career is over, is gonna, be commenting on yout. What'sup with this guy shirt, so man, you seem pretty pumped after it. I don'tthink you listen to the recording from what I caught up with you, but you seempretty pumped after you done. The parking you've put on another one yeah,yeah and Heah, because you were like yeah soso pumped about it. Are you going to do the same? Show or you going to do somelittle refinements? Have you written anything since then little changes morelike things that I'd written in the last six months that I haven't beenable to do on stage, they'll, try and feed in a bit more great man. So I Idid a little bit of that in the first one yeah, but I think I was more justjust worried about remembering everything and all that which I don'treally care about so much this time. I'm like all right that one well justfocus on the performance and try out some new bits. Oh Man, that's great! II'm so happy that it went well. You know you I was so I was afraid for you.I thought you you've either. I thought just how I thought. Maybe ifthis goes bad, it could turn turn you off stand up forever yeah, but you yeah, it woke Oa, weird stupidthing to do that. It's like I kind of felt like it. Didn't nothing couldmatter with this. You know I mean I like there's so many variables and it'slike you haven't done it in forever. It's like all right, I didn't do a goodshow in my first show in seven months in a park, yeah, that's fine yeah andyou kind of going in guns, blazing you're in the deep end now yeah,because you've opened up with so to do five minutes or something like thatmight be a lot easier. That's what I'm clad feeling I'm very excited to dosome spots where I because it's like all right, I'm already I've forgottentotally what it's like. What was it like? Getting up there, man, I'vetotally forgotten what was it it was strange to like. I had to work hard to remember the jokes, butthen at the same time, you're like Oh, but I shouldn't be just rememberingthe jokes I should be in the moment and like yeah Egged as well yeah ye ye andit's like when you're doing the comedy all the time. I think that's a verylike easy thought to manage. Like it's an easy thing to do, because you'relike all right. Well, that's just that's the job. I know what the jokesare in the audience is herself try and engage with them and where I justcouldn't do both. At the same time, it's like, I was either engaged withthe audience and like moving around and making a like contact and performingwell or I was remembering what the jug was and I couldn't do both at the sametime. Yes, yes, I feel, like that's going to be the biggest thing to workon man yeah. That is, that is a hard thingto work on that, I'm afraid of as well. I'm Licky, I recorded my my special andthings like that, so I can just watch it two or three times yeah but grudgingly, and then I'm like okay,hopefully they're all lock and loaded in there Ben Night, told me that whenhe went to Brisbane he said you do get back on the horse.After about two or three times you back yeah, and he said the only differenceis you're armed with a bigger artillery. Now from riding and lockdoor. That'scool so yeah yeah. It was really good...

...man yeah. I needed that and that Ineeded that when we're going through the hard stage of Lockdoor, when I waslike ready to give up to just go, no I'm not going to ride or anything I'mjust going to get drunk and watch TV, Yeah E E H. I've got to get as muchwriting in as possible as many new ideas as I can yeah. So yeah, that's great! Well! Should weget into some ideas? Yes, let's get into some ideas. This is one of those ones where IRA can. If, if this podcast didn't exist, Iwould just leave it to die in the note book, but I feel like it's one of thetype of thing that you always bring and it always makes me laugh so yeah. Ishould try and a e. They can make up this one yeah, but I don't know if it'sa song or an ad or something. But let'sjust say it's a like just a romantic song where it'sjust encouraging you to just build. You girl a bus from scratchyeah and that's if you really want to show you girl you care about it, you'dbuild a bus from scratch. It's like this kind of smooth, like Barry Whitekind of thing. It's like got to build your girl, a bus and none of thatbuying a bus from the factory shit. You gotta build of on the ground up to showwhat you really care and then it's like a Guet and the girls like that's so Kayyeah, don't need a bus and well. I've already spent a lot of moneygetting the parts too late for you. I think it just goes back and forthlike and basically the bus. I ve really figuredit out yet, but I feel like the bus is an absolute death trap and a lot ofpeople have died in this incredibly unsafe unregistered, but, like it go, if you really care about me,you'll drive this bus to work. I don't want to do that. I don't need to dothat. WHO BUILDS A bus made out of his bestof a yeah. Was the cheapest material? There's a reason for that. It's illegal!Well! That means you really love me. If you drive it yeah. Well, I think man, I love this.It's kind of like it's based on one of our favorite Simpson scenes that wealways discuss where home is giving his grand he's dad yeah advice on had Ithat is the best thing. If you want to do you got to play it cool and it justall yet T O. don't don't don't don't yeah man yeah, it's perfect! That is so good,something like that would be cool yeah. I love this yeah yeah. Maybe it'slike yeah. We need we need to dustlike. Iknow you you've been trying to trying to do this, but like get like a just like a musical director for like aweek, yeah yeah like someone to rip all these stupid ideas and then just makethe most basic music for it. Yeah Yeah Man, Yeah Yeah Yeah. I met up with a guy a guy who's in a couple of beans and he'sgoing to help us out so hopefully he's all right. He was. It was a crazyguy, crazy guy all over the place, but I think he's the man for the job. So ifhe goes good I'll, let you know yeah they'll, be grants hard to get a ballrolling on these things very hard, yeah studios. They need studios and stuff.You know they don't just need a mike like real artists. Yeah I stand upartist you know realize is just go to the park and Yeath yeah. So what some?What some different? So we could think about this for stage.We could think about it. For you know in a I guess it would work best as afilm sketch or a song, but t be great if you, if you knew of a good singer, Ilike a good female singer that could...

...sing there. Yeah yeah t actual be greatsure. I know a few you could do like this is popped into my head, then, butyou know the the beginning of the song. Wasn't me the shaggy son Yeah, whereit's like this, like that weird conversation, Ewen Shaggy and hisfriend, and it's like a man, my girl, she called me- your noey met a catch.You was like yeah. What am I going to do and I goes like you say it wasn'tyou it's like it's like build a rebus from scratch and then the music I bilges, I could buy a fancy ring he'sthe girls. Don't want no fancy rings. This is the twenty first century manyou got to get something you got to get something you know like what is it something that has a use, somethingthey can use in the every day? Lift what about a Shiny Car Yatha? Are we talking about? You knowlike a convertible or something cool that is not that's not kind of usefuland a mot woman has no need for a convertible yeah, where she's Goin to get fifty peopleinto state. Also, a convertible is not safe unless it has a roll bar of somekind. It's not look good. What about a toot, a hillocks like atwin cap? You know it's got a tree in the back, so he can move things and,and it you ilott twin cab, is not big enough for a woman to drive all offriends around plus a family. Think of a car where youcan take the seats out the back or maybe use that for storage, but also driving around a large groupof friends, and then they both say. I yeah same time as a yeah. It's a shaggy guy, trying toexactly like I'm in my brain now, I'm just giggling about like what. If thiswas a like, it wasn't me parody song. So it's all the tone and like therhythm of it wasn't me, but the guys like I don't know why I should be a bus.It doesn't seem like a good idea. She wants a bus bill e rebus. I can give her a ring.She wants to but clean the hand she wants a bus. I could take it for Dinna.She wants a bus shaggy. I don't know anything aboutbuilding a bus. You cheat you cheated on it, so youknow you're going to have to build a robust. Sorry is that racist, I don'tknow fo, I don't know if I should sing it are you allowed to like you know,they're, do impressions of people of Different Cultures, but if you'resinging it yeah, he the rules are of Shaggy ParodySong Yeah. I don't know what the rules are either yeah. Maybe we could write to shaggy aexplain the premise, because I'm pretty sure shaggy wouldn't be accessible, butI reckon he's matwork yeah. What was his name? It's like Rick Rock somethingyeah yeah, something like that. Yeah Rick Rock would probably be quiteaccessible. Yeah Ergin we could do a Ol that was re rig O on the part, the third member of funcatchups. Oh Man, that'll be correct. What if we? What if we try to composean email after this to try and get in contact? Do that because he's so like? I genuinely feellike not bad for the guy, but it's like shaggy is so famous like he wasactually famous for a long time and now he's that, like kind of goofy noveltyfamous, almost like his like nostalgia,...

...fun famous yeah, but Rick Rock is likewrote. So many of the songs is in so many of the songs, yeah and no oneknows who rickrose Yeah Rick Rock Poor Guy, but I think I think guys I kinwould be a session musician. Now, maybe yeah I don't know he'd probably besinging the back and vocal. Oh He's, definitely doing a lot better thanother use too bad for a eruction feel sorry for us yea. We should write him aland, a con, hey buddy, you think you got it bad. The most luxurious thing I've seen is acoffee, plunger man. I think that's yeah, there's twodifferent ways: an go there. You can do. I still like the the you know, but the the the builderbus Shaggy Song is very very adventurous and I think it's brave andyou should I feel like yeah. It's that makes me laugh so much, but it's that thing of it's only funny, because we already hadthe first idea if you were just coming in from scratch- and I like all right-it's it's, it wasn't me by shaggy, but it's about building a bus it'll be alot a lot to take in for the average yeah. That's true yeah ye ye for sure.No, but that's we can't let that block US Jack. No, we just need to make the introductionstronger than yeah and I think the chat at the start wouldbe great yeah. What if man you and I got on stage- andwe just did the start and that's it- we don't do the song yeahlike you're, just like M Yeh, she caught me did it and in Yeah I now wehad a Goshal about a is just like a small gig somewhere.It's like the like Rochester comedy in Fitsroy Yeah and tell like well on stage it capper andthen the intra music to wasn't me comes on and both of US walk out on stage andit's like a you like damn I go. She called me, you know I like you, let itcatch it was like yeah. I don't know what to do and I'm like five minutes of faily new comedymaterial and then you know all right and then I just wake off and you said Ahaton a yeah is like do and then themusic stoppit yeah he go. Go in on a man. That's great! That's so good yeah, there's so many angles. You can go onthat and I think I think it's great all right great. I think you got somethinghere, even even if we take from this yet exactly the just the start, thetalking at the start. We could also think of other songs that do that, butthey just talking like I think, Michael Jackson and I I stevie wondered- do that the girl is mine, Yeah Yeah. I don'tunderstand the way you think I that's right. Yeah they talk at the start islike you keep dreaming or something like that. You know that yeah the girlis mine and the girl is man, no man all right at a very strange kind of thing. In Michael Jackson, songs. It'slike even the later ones, or is like so old and crazy already, and it's likehe's making himself out like this likestunning, ladies man and it's like even even remove all the like horriblePetofi e stuff. Is I even take that off the equation he's still like a kind oflike a weird like recluse at this point anyway. Yes, it's kind of a verystrange like angle, to take in the music yeah. I think so man yeah, I here's the weirdest thing about MichaelJackson. His music speaks to people so deeply. Like especially me, I was thebiggest Michael Jackson. I yeah loved him just really loved his music. It was thefirst tape I ever had it just all the...

...music, but it was all fake, not all ofit, but some of it was fake yeah beside his kind of early like bad him singinglike I'm bad yeah step my face because I'm bad he's. Never, he doesn't knowyeah, but it's like to be bad. He's, never been bad. Yeah he's in apracticing dancing and singing in a like high stress environment. Man Beatit. You same thing never know no experience in a gang or yeah fightingor you know being on the streets or whatever, but it's so he's just animpostor on every situation yet, but he did it so well. Yeah, the ultimateactor in my yeah yeah ultimate, couldn't even play an instrument. Youjust beat box there, the riff and then they would lay at each beat box yeah.You just be like T, T, T, N, N, N, N, N N and it it justlike and could dance and everything and that's what sold it yeah. We neverthought about that. No one ever thought about he's one of the first song. He wrotehimself, I think, was when he was like real small. I think it was when he waslike eleven or something yeah and he wrote this long Ben Yeah and that wasabout his pet rat yeah and, like it's beautiful, that'sprobably one of his songs. I'd say that where he was like really show casingnews he's talent and yeah he could tap into. Maybe he had those things hecould kind of tap into that that a good actor does or something like that re.He thinks about the one time he was in a fight or the one rough securityguardy store and he's like. Oh Yeah, I'm Goin to write, beat it about thatguy or something I don't know, yeah yeah, but yeah. It is weird man, yeahbecausehe's, totally your o. He sells it so well like yeah, you don't eventhink about it. So it's like Abe didn't know English. I think for a lot oftheir yeah early ones like they were just given like trains to sing what thewords were in English, but they didn't really know what it meant or anythingyeah, but they still just just sell it so good. I yeah man, Yeah Abbot, like Iwould like. I was just about to say they're sooverlooked, but they're not Bella band ever, but I think on aseeing him more than a pop level. I remember ask because my mom was a bigfan of abet yea and I was like it wasn't till. I got like a lot ofolder, I was like: Did they write their own songs and she's like yeah? Likemostly you know, yeah I was like fuck that is cool. You imagine pumping outthat many hits yeah. You know it's like Asof Bass, but ASA BAS. Never reallycaught on the same Abe did remember as base use to hold number one for so longanyway, all right man. What are we got here? Igot some ideas, but I think I I kind of I kind of got a bit excited and I toldyou outside of the podcast yeah a few of my ideas, but I am rookie mistake.Oh yes, I was. I have a new exercise, I'd like to try yeah. If we have havetime because yeah, as I told you as I was discussing before the course I meanbefore the podcast I was doing, I was doing A. I was doing a I'm doing a tape courseat the moment. Yeah about you, know, assistingeducation to be a teacher's assistant and whatI've been doing is just writing down sentences that I could use in stand upright. So I've could a file, and it just says good sentences and there's this great. A lot of thisis about diversity and things yea that so I was thinking about like coolsentences that sound funny like...

...identified the barriers like Iidentified the barriers between yeah and I and I tell you what it you know there. I am identifying thebarriers. Yes, it is was really great. I don't know if they could. Other onesis like existing knowledge. Yeah I had the existing knowledge I had of this situation was quite low yeah I had a limited existingknowledge or prior knowledge, something like that and then another thing was consult on culturally appropriatestrategies now thought. There's always the one of our favorite Stewart lyjokes were steward says that he gets into a taxi and the taxi driver says all Moslemsmust be killed, yea and he goes which we all have to admit, is a very boldopening statement, yeah, which I sometimes I think of that joke, and Ijust crack up yeah and I think something like that. If there's a aracist situation or something like that, where I'm talking about that, I'm likeI wonder if this is a culturally appropriate strategy- yeahyeah yeah, just the most blatant outright racism, EEYOU gotta, kill allGreek people and you like in my experience, yeah. It wouldn't be a COcontray, appropriate strategy yeah. Ah, maybe I could do it a bit man where Italk about doing my tape course, I'm doing a tape course in in diversity andculture and yeah. You know I'm trying to learnthese type things yeah and then I walk down the streetand I could talk about a real life situation. I've been in. I don't knowwhat racial situation I've been in lately, but I go oh. I wonder if thisis a culturally inappropriate statute, the dis man's adopting yeah. It soundsfunny already like there's so many of these funny sentences. I've missed alot, but I've copy and paste them all the time. While I'm doing the course and it's something that we could bemindful of yeah yeah, I think it's a good idea. Yeah Yeah. I think anythingto just give yourself a fun like different jumping off point like that,like yea yeah yeah, I feel, like that's been the hard part about lock down insome respect is like when you're riding and it's just it's like you're, just starting freshevery time you just startin from like all right. What's it's like when youfirst start comedy like what's funny where he was this, the wit, the dog?Okay, what for what about? What's a dog? And I can't like you just kind ofstarting from absolute like from the ground, and you got to like figure itout where, if you put in like little little bits of framework andscaffolding where you're like all right, here's here's something that interestsme and I can like combine that and build up from that. I think it puts youin a much better position to write from yeah yeah yeah yeah, so yeah like likeso it's such a cool thing to know those kind of steps or to build new steps to writeyea. Sometimes, when you just bang in your head against the wall, you likeI've got to do something. That's different of you to try a new thing,and I something that's stuck in my head. Apparently Luke Heggie. Does this greatcomedian great a strain comedian and Jerry Steinfeld? Does this is a gothrough what they just in case just in case you thought they weren't goodcommitions, look her! He does this yeah. He says race, hate things you so what I was giggling at was. Ithought, because you said: okay, Great Comedian, no greatest strength,comedian, but I thought you're just going to say great, a strain which Ijust er like what he is, but it's just a by a funny way to refer to a friendlike I thought you were laughed laughing at my yeah, my...

...promotion of him. No, no, I absolutelyshot out Hag any chance you get, but I just funny to like just describing yourmates, like, Oh yeah, great, Australian, great well, credit to the nation Lestore ofthe year. My opinion yeah, so yeah great comic and yeah, so so in forabout. Apparently they do. The same thing where they write down a story, then they go through with this Orsan seedifferent words. They can use yeah, which I think is cool, I think, is cool.But for me I think that would be shoe haunting a little bit yeah, it's tough,because it's like like to my character, yeah. It is cool, but it's also justlike a weird trick. Yeah exactly now like you want to feel like it's comingfrom the heart, a bit more, but isn't stand up just a bunch of weird tricksand as long as it is that heart based thing, your okay yeah. If I feel like Ifight that, though, like I feel like I fight it bore than I should, becauseit's so many things that like yeah, I know I could do. That would get a laugh.But then it's like I I'm so aware of all the tricks that it's like. Well,I'm not I'm just taking advantage of the fact that, like I think the worst thing aboutbeing a comedian in Australia is that people it's like changing now, but Ithink people are so like not familiar with comedy compared to other placeslike a lot of people, the like great crowds, I go see a show or something,but they probably haven't seen a much comedy before yeah like in most cases,there's like a lot of people who listen to podcast and go to festival shows,and that kind of thing hmm. But it's like, I feel like there's so manylittle things like hell, call back or using a different word or things likethat where it's like. I don't think this is funny, I'm just takingadvantage of the fact that the audience probably hasn't been to a lot of comedy.Yet I, like, I know this sucks, but they don't yet and I'm going to takeadvantage of that gap yeah. We men want to do that so much well, but thenthat's also like a cool thing that you bring up. Is that that's your heart initself, elmay be at the end of day, peoplecould tell that you were lying to yourself, yeah, so consciously say: HeyJackie's line knew himself about this yeah. I remember like on like TVrunning jobs and stuff you get in that thing, where someone ill say an idea and like no onelaughs, it's not funny to the people coming up with ideas, but they'll belike oh yeah, that'll work, yeah and it's like well didn't make any of USlaugh. So what we're going to proceed like it's going to make the countrylaugh yeah, it's like that and that's fine for like if that's a job orwhatever, but I feel like. If it's your own comedy you can't have you can'thave that attitude? No, no, not at all, not at all man yeah! I don't that waskind of my. I thought about something men where I was like saying I go up on stage ago. Comedy istough comedies tough. I was trying to write, I'm alwaystrying to write, but sometimes I can't get any funny ideas. I look around me.I was in a cafe, I saw a cardboard box and I thought what about a cardboard boxer yeah likea yeah like a La a word, play cardboard boxer, our box er made a cardboard or evenbetter a box, a dog made out a cardboard and other who e we kidding, and then Ithought about my career all together and I thought you're a piece of shit.What about giving up? Oh my kidding, I can't be funny it's really hard to make a cardboardbox funny yeah yeah, it's so it's a classic new cap of tripe or coming backto the. I think you should derstand that by bringing out the cardboardboxer like if you're like gonna, be like who you, who you even to do thisyou're, not fucking, funny you'll never be funny, you should quit. You shouldgo back to the farm or l. You know just got a big horrible rant and then thebig case and his like...

...anyway, where, if there's a cardboard boxer andyou like, move the curtain back and you've just made like a silhouette of aboxer out of cardboard- a get it yeah anyway. You've just already done a rantabout how it sucks and you shouldn't, do it yeah, but yeah. It's yeah. That's that'sreally good man. What if I had a picture of a cardboard box, er yeah, Ijust put it up and I was like a s funny. I guess something like I don'tknow: Yeah Yeah Yeah! That's that's kind of all. I hadI've been a bit empty handed this week because yea I've been a bit busy but yeah. That's IT Yeah! Sorry, that's IT BUDDY YEAH! Maybe it's sofunny. Just like surveying all the Alte notes. You got there yeah and it's likeI've talked about this before, but it's like mostly a lot of it is just insanedrawings. Yes, but it's funny like you and that, like you, know, like you're, like anaccountant like going through really seriously like all right, a man withtwo faces on the same face like screaming and their tongues are tied uptogether. Is it's like it? Maybe it was yeah, Yeah Buddy, we'll do one more and thenwe'll wrap it off yeah I'll struit, a quick one wrap it up. I think I kind of mentioned this to youin real life, but I'll bring it up as quickly to wrap up. I want to do avideo, that's like a because I did a few a few last year,because I think it's a format for sketch that I really like is I likesparodies of like a stand up special kind of thing. San Did one that Ireally loved and I tried I did a few like there's the comedy for babies, oneand self deprecating comedian, video. I made yes, but I want to do one or it'slike an ad for my coming out of lockton stand up special and it's like yeah,it's like it's like lock down is over, and theking is back like real, like over the top, but think is like right. Yeah nowis, like he's, been locked down working tirelessly, twenty four seven right andthe perfect jokes for the perfect special, like all cool and it's all. The footieslike me like in my room like typing furiously,and I want to have like is- is so dumb and I want to have likemy eye balls taped up and then on. My computer screen is like got like eightytabs of different comedians on you tube all playing simulees and isiki brainwashed by it. But then it's like cuts back to me on stage is like all themusic going and I'm like the joke. I do is like bloody hells reading Harry Potter, Hog Wats, that's funny, because youwould need the world's most powerful Magic to get all the warts off. My Hog,as the jokes in it aspect, is like he's, been training his body and his mind forseven months. There is no excuses. This is going to be the perfect special backto me on stage and it's like a lot less confident, still sort of on the samejoke. I'm like yeah, because you see it's like hog, water's name of schoolin Harry Potter, right and some people call their Dick Their Hog. I don'treally, but some people do, and so what I'm saying it's like back to like it'strue, like I think, I'LD be funny if I'm like doing push ups and playingchess at the same time like on a is like he's created the perfect comedyweapon if he doesn't have a good hour now, something is seriously wrong back on stage like yeah yeah. What elseis what I look at my notebook and I just says hug: What's in it, I m, likeOh man, how can we film this? We got tofilm it as quickly as possible. You...

Maybe you could get the what is it the Christopher NolanHaath time? You know that big kind of fool thing yeah. Well, I want to have like real fun likepump up like comedy special music, but then, by the end, it's like still thefun music but the like. The overlay footage es. I'm just like sittingexpressionless on my bed like staring up into the desert and the voice of waslike it's like for you to do a seven months without a job thinking aboutcomedy and not have a flaw.

It was like fourseconds long as a sort of an experiment and yeah. I got nothing, but I don'tknow what the like the whole algorithm thing works with a video. That's thattiny, like I feel like on face book and twitter. I never see yeah that kind ofcontent, so I might put it on Youtte or something and I don't know yeah. I thought it was good and I waslike happy with myself for doing something that was like four secondslong. That was still kind of funny. It was annoying because I wrote I had an old t shirt and I just likewrecked it, because I wrote big foot as real on it in like like in a sharping,and I was like it's worth it because of how funny this is and is like it's likefifteen likes or some one part, O yeah, good or anyway I'll talk well talk to yeah allright right.
