Memories of the mid two thousands with me in my twin engine guys as Mir might wind kicking in the living room turn ideas Buick classic. She is just. All the beauty of that show and Diallo the bring that up is that what's crazy 'cause I'll tell a story about liked that show and how it almost became now when it was. But that show was designed to have people be like were hanging out with you so we would see people after that show was on who love the show and they felt like they were just hanging out with that because I was just some accounts talking directly to them that's what was. In the third season so it is his second season since he's in fact someone can't know I think was third summit came along and ESPN and said. We need a little like a fifty person studio audience in there and we were like no no this a bad idea. Because it was what you just said you would your brother had no we don't hear my brother it yeah it was very much like mystery science theater yet oh man we. It's near those guys and and taught those guys and say hey we got this year.

Varied mix I mean our debt so big it's it's tough when you talk about it but if you really peel it back and because we talk about this me about musicians all the time and the music to people make. Rain and arrow like let's make the kind of show that if we didn't know us we would wanna watch and tell people about. So you think about a guy like I'm sure you do this with this show we like I wanna do that type show that if I wasn't the ideal idea right now that's my show this. I shelves in exactly I mean I don't be that guy it's like. Here's a song followed by another song enjoy like that's you know that's not even you in the choices of songs that you can put on. You're saying you're opening up your playlist people's them is violently but I think about musicians like I'm not trying to knock him and he's a funny guy but like. Does John Mayer listen to his music because it lists and other I don't know I actually don't Aziz is comedy tendencies are more indie. And is and is energy when you meet Emory con we've met him before. They lean towards more Indy and I just. I don't know I wonder if you would be the kind of guy listened to his own music I don't know I like I mean like myself talks yesterday that he's you have maybe Megan let it kilos or maybe was used to have to look at.

You send me to tell you said we shall overcome together. Let's look at and that's a phrase that we are now do you sit there negro baseball is that right I went out and to discuss that. I know the other thing that I've listened to begin because somewhat collecting vinyl and in great records from either in the past what there are like three albums and I'm going to suggest that are and the music is so good to dig back in the past. So. I I got into a couple of solo Graham Nash albums from Crosby still Nash yet he made two albums they're both incredible one song for beginners sauce creators and the second one is a wild tales wild deals is. Again it is just top to bottom so brilliant of an album. And I. Heard it was so I'd never either he was kind of the guy in the band that I liked the least I was like like Stephen sills amazing in Crosby's is kind of weird and crazy but. He's so his first solo albums amazing to if I can only remember my name that's an amazing album the day of cross the album but then I do I saw elicit that that I kind of worked my way into the Graham Nash. It's amazing it's amazing it's Smart it's it's just I would say. Played decide what they thought hey you looking at them. Iranian blah. As you Ryan Adams album are buddies help reduce it and play on and do you still love me that no ripping guitarist I've. Heard you guys you mentioned.

But their amazing so just hang in in talking yes guy who I love so much but he played guitar. That awesome guitar saw do you still love me dead. Routine get and so that is my man now my way no way and so. The I would tell him that that. And out analyze you know guidance is holding out there record bars and yeah I need is is acting like that's. That's the cool stuff that is that is the great part of doing what we do and being deployed it was what we don't realize is that. Like you men were such big fans of music. That we forget. That. Bands now a special with podcasts. You know bands use it as there's a great line in in the load out. Which is Jackson Browne famous Jackson Browne salary talks about like finishing up a concert and loading out. It. And talked about really life on the road at some of the type that I made on the body and all of us and Richard Pryor on the TV. So a case of Niagara back to the seventies and they watch comedians. And with podcast when danced on the road in the have to drive 49 hours a day. Listen to podcasts so we don't realize that all this content that we're putting on the world stand up comedy are too podcast on people to this club or country. Those are being consumed by the indie bands that we feature on yeah I mean we reached out to Whitney and they reached out back to us on on Twitter relate guys we've come out you gotta you know come and play don't play on the podcast a while trying to grow another pine grove another landlords slam record tiger west. Yeah yeah. Well landlords slim is a buddy of ours and he's such together playing great music and up down like the undertaker. Does have a good senior editor of the match yeah. That is casting ballots they but then we heard like Lou we heard from not by nature though PP BP is go PP all the way to like MG MT yes a light. Yeah you know me yeah so so we can hang him out there I was like oh Kansas City has this. And I'm sure you've tad did you it which is really cool this sort of all group of folks culture yes like he counterculture people who are like yeah we're up for consuming great comedy and great music and great art. And doesn't. Everything doesn't have to be to surface level now right. That goes deep where the bugs we have we are blessed lately it's a real thing you have to leave and bringing everybody appears and I I'll love you guys I was gonna get a little bit of does that resonate as though Sharon know what we're talking about. We got Randy and Jason's our means of cheap seats ideas Ian feature all the time to them last night. On hand at midnight last night mom that was that are mom got that is DVR domain it usually JC I mean I'll play. She's an elderly person she's honest I mean she was way older than the other half ass but she brought it got around him did a great. Hasn't done stuff with the Chelsea Lately Peru. I mean yes. The list goes on and on gonna talk about his last night sir going to save save it with a I I've I've I've. Benefit for a long time a lot of my body I'm 2510 a lot of my buddies you know. And how they've how I met you guys for the first time. Season three finale. It's always sunny. That was the blast and a Malone the game audiences and enhances their ass off tires to cool story glad with that does that TrueCrypt since there are they can't go to day care. Fat Michael and squarely being utility owns our name. That we came up with the stuff OK so here's a cool story about that. So you know it's twins you know there are a lot of great roles that are written between the sometimes they write some good ones and we've done them. But and we've gotten we've been lucky enough to do a lot of them. But other times you know we each got this audition to come in and be I've morning DJ. The who's who's running this dance competition at the bond it's always sunny and as we were learning the lines raining now we're just improvising with the each other were helping each other learn the scene but we're gonna go in and read against each other. And we start improvising like what if they were like. We had an old team did in our act about a morning's view in Saint Louis like he she 95. And we went into this whole thing we do it is jam so much Kenny allowed in the diner Droid you're rethink you know all that stuff so like battle tossing a Doobie Brothers right now. So that. Casey 95 you know legs sub stations are gonna give you the Counting Crows. We're in a man. And the man to man a man and math. We're again you can hit us now. Like this is funny year than what we're doing individually let's go in and let's ask the casting director before we either of us read and they get any of us on tape. We said and we have an idea can only pitching like an interesting thing we didn't change the ins and outs of these lines. We just improvise within them a little bit and we created this thing called the Q crew whatever we yeah. And and Darrell Wright did it and it's like you know a gamble but the second you know we've become friends with Charlie day and and Robin and immediately immediately and glad you don't advocate for yes Palin's come on and done stuff and we learn a movie hero anything that we Rhode but she so they're amazing love those guys and dale said that the second we saw you guys on there were like this is it answered it. And so once and on the set though it was so loose on the set that we started improvising more like what if one of them is going through a nasty divorce but can't drop the DJ voice. Like yes yeah yes yeah night I can't tell you the last doubted shower with a motels so. Well. I'm rather odd to go to the cloud that just smell addresses. They Palin it's so great to connect via radio guy view that stick is Philip and finally you know it's still absolutely now. Just the guy you'd think like he's got him amazing voices and what if they're just going through tremendous personal tragedy and they hand was probably the table way that's half that's mostly real right also like I was so sad. Did you have so dead and that they want the voted yeah. Yeah. It's the worst thing that they have now so that just was a blast to do they were loving it and here I mean it was a huge scene because you've got all these extras all these people dancing like. If you finale so I. Like he comes in weekly recurrent repeating here comes in the excess skeleton in. Select is this sort of hydraulics. Wolf thing that's happening so a lot of moving parts in this thing and they still allowed us to improvise improvised as when my favorites those of in here I have to thank you and we get that a lot and it's really fun and you know I mean obviously those guys have gone on to do one especially Charlie is gonna do massive massive things you mentioned the Mickens are our and he is so good out of me again we love those guys in and just love the energy they had those another thing that like. We saw that show on TV we said how do we you know that show who are these two how do we get on the show and then we just found ways. Actually that was still it was the chemical podcast yup you know now or what's he thirteen when gas went along with animal ever it's just been crap so what he got prefer more to guys prefer more and props style do you like. Your massive rate. Yeah we write as well and so I mean you wanna write it in a way that's close to how we kind of talk but we always love it when it feels it's MIC somebody acting. And it feels very natural and real I love that I've immediately gravitate towards that so. The morning as we can make it and obviously between the two of us we concerted jump off of it's not like my line your line violent there's a little bit of a crossover and overlap so we really really to anybody that allows us to do that this that's tough to. It is tough to do we just did a show that's it we're not allowed to say what it is 'cause we signed a non disclosure agreement by it myself I think it's TV show. Takes place in New Mexico where that's all we're gonna say Christmas to New Mexico and can probably figure out what's going on it it'll be on at the end of this month we did two episodes of it. And even in that show where there really isn't any writhing there was a little bit they allowed us to do a little bit which I thought was incredible. And so debt that experiences just super funny any any work we get. It time here on a set. Getting did you work I'd just in my happy as a person yeah. I I I don't want to get too long besides this is this is a blank and it just a few more kids yeah I think guys work. Kids in the center howdy again to bring on the road. No don't bring the kids right now it's too Dark Knight you're just tied up and I mean there is like a beautiful sweet freedom that we had last asked which is walking the streets Kansas City my parents that he went to sleep actually deal with any of this garbage kids kids kids can be telephones and it was with a subpoena themselves yes that was reminiscent of I have a moment ago pot at that stage as if someone else trying to protect I was trying to it was dark. The journal no but still we eat you know for us had two kids so that's a lot you do a two personalities Plano is leveling my excellent has one kid innate. Complain about how to like a seventeen month old kitten so I'm like. You're barely apparent nominee and if you got wind kit your life here like a parent like an optometrists is a doctor. Your barely an apparent theory. Think you have a dog that talks and many of the people who are like now the dog it's just like having kids know it is no I love that you think it is. But I'm a taste of that if you can tie it up while you go have brunch is not a kids' debut. If you can leave it with someone who's not a member of your family while you go out of town and it is not a kid you can cut off its balls in the communities like that's a good thing yeah you did it not been a bid it up for some people you should realize that tiger asked for some kids if do you that. So yeah we working I mean it's what we're dealing with and hopefully hopefully if you don't have kids. Will make it funny enough that you understand what it's about in a way that you don't have to in the same way that we made sports funny. For non sports fans we look at parenting is like something we can tell you about. And you can laugh that even if you don't have kids and if you do you have kiwi trying to take what is the human element that everybody can relate to and we as people are trying to relate to it so we get a little bit of that there's a little bit of everything in the acts so it's there's a little something for. Yeah it's stimulus Juan Antonio won last year he had one last thing it does and heart shall be there are we hammer coming out of Nigeria and I authorities yet but the real actors yes we aren't you know it. You yeah. The flat top 545 here Rick. Thought 05% Naomi Campbell that will kill me Alia how long they make you laugh because that I will be made you first call comedy in an agent tryout. Even before you know when he got people like you know even like sign filmed going to college more yeah no rocket tomorrow include I mean. I'm now that is look that's blue gear tires at two different ends of the actor I mean. Look we asked troopers so that means it would mean the show and our special and I'm like nervous for Tokyo's like nervous on our upcoming special. We just do a joke and now really it's going to be announced he's so in September. This really something that happened in my life and I wanted to reflect and talk about my knee. Sun said to me from the back of the card eat in a world that about trump and I don't hide it and cry from Exxon. He picks about the need explaining why things are tough and so one night when their job in the company's data as again I said I want to kill trump. And I was like. It's nice to have goals on you can play literally AGCO. So that's well. Obviously I'm not condone any killing the president don't fire me from my job percent Secret Service to my house domino effect but like for me you know we put that in the special and it's true trumps so that is making me a bad parent and that's the premise that bit. And I admit that it's not a great thing to say bye buddy it is we are in such uncharted waters just feels different it's hard it is hard to. It's hard not to just be really mean it's hard not to really still how to lead battle it and how to we get through it you get through it by creating art and you get through it by voicing and trying to be funny about it if you can be funny about it. I mean look all you got dumb people we're getting we're getting their voices heard got a bunch of Nazis in crappy people like that who are suddenly feeling emboldened that they can do a bunch of things that they couldn't do. Four years ago like for us. You know like we have to be the counter voice and we have to do and a Smart and funny way to make people laugh is Bieber laughed about it even if he's supportive if you laugh at what we're saying. We've sort of brought everybody together and that is kind of the beauty of what lies he live comedy is. We're in any Germans on the phone you you don't concert you he's gone through emails he can be a concert I love when people like pulled out their phone at a concert they're watching it on their followed. Likely and no they're out there right. Putting out that'd be an experience are you offering live that's right ultimately look I don't let it a comedy show it's hard to do that who don't want filming in that doesn't happen as much so you have a roomful of people. Collectively listening and then laughing together it is such a beautiful sound a roomful of people doing one thing together is a beautiful sound where it's rare in this day and aids so we idea but as far as assigned helping him like now when you go there the sensitivity on the other end of the spectrum. That's hard to and I understand that you wanna be able to be edgy our point is comedians is to take people outside their comfort zone and sometimes we say things in a way to blow out certain attitude. Doesn't mean we espouse those attitudes it means. Were making fun of that stance deficit that's as satire is that coal bears whole thing on on the come on come essentials he was being more of Bill O'Reilly there Bill O'Reilly was hit that he was he was lampoon it body going tiller there if you took is being what he was saying literally. You'd be like you know someone who is a sensitive over sensitive person who had never seen the show would be like who's this guy. And why's he saying these things can't yet exactly so we're I am very much in the in the frame of mind of like especially if it's for comedy you have in your comedian and you were in known comedian. You have like we have to push boundaries and make people think about things well. You guys. I've done a phenomenal to me this weekend radian Jason's car up at the out in Prague I know we've got we got to show tonight tried it tonight aliens you more tomorrow. That's one of the times times serves seven. 730 intend denied 77. Intend tomorrow. The evidence and tickets are going so calm yeah I want to know all details are lying go to it probably works I compound amateur night. I'm very excited are pretty seriously guys this is. This is gonna treat for us treat for us man great to meet you in a good look at this awesome ship there was party. Same guys.
