If you'RE gonna go stereotype on 12 00:00:55.799 --> 00:01:03.799 any okay, the next thing at your better be the most original, funny 13 00:01:03.840 --> 00:01:10.120 shit ever said. Okay, mainly because, okay, you're perpetuating a stereotype. 14 00:01:10.680 --> 00:01:15.879 That means you are about to endorse what some of the racist sexists in 15 00:01:15.959 --> 00:01:21.400 your audience already think or you're about to piss them off. which is IT 16 00:01:21.480 --> 00:01:30.400 gonna BE? So it's it. I've always gone there if, if I 17 00:01:30.439 --> 00:01:34.959 decide it needs to happen Um and sometimes you pay the price and sometimes, 18 00:01:36.000 --> 00:01:41.079 even when the audience roars, you'll still see faces, you know, where 19 00:01:41.079 --> 00:01:46.560 people just bent all out of fucking shape. You you know, because people 20 00:01:46.719 --> 00:01:53.840 laughed at something they were deeply, deeply offended by. Y'All have all see 21 00:01:53.879 --> 00:01:57.359 me. I use the n word. I use it consistently, vigorously, 22 00:01:57.560 --> 00:02:00.719 like a LOOFA. I've never heard you said the n word. I've never 23 00:02:00.719 --> 00:02:06.480 heard you say no, and I think that about that. That's why I'm 24 00:02:06.560 --> 00:02:15.240 here on a Monday night, because we knew he wasn't gonna fucking say welcome 25 00:02:15.280 --> 00:02:19.840 to the Basement Lounge podcast, a deep dive into current events, a comedic 26 00:02:19.879 --> 00:02:23.800 look at a serious world, hosted by Mike Shay and Mike Wells. All 27 00:02:23.840 --> 00:02:27.479 Right, I'm actually gonna do an intro on this one because it's a it's 28 00:02:27.520 --> 00:02:29.960 a big show and we're doing something a little bit different this time around. 29 00:02:29.960 --> 00:02:32.879 So, uh, those who have listened to the show before, you've you've 30 00:02:32.879 --> 00:02:36.639 heard Jesse Nutt on the show before. We've had him on the before, 31 00:02:36.960 --> 00:02:38.479 newcomer, and I had to think about it because I don't you haven't been 32 00:02:38.520 --> 00:02:42.520 on the show before. Jeff Allen, fairly new to the copy, the 33 00:02:42.520 --> 00:02:49.120 local scene east side side. Say that ever again. I said that just 34 00:02:49.280 --> 00:02:53.840 to see what Mike would say. And we're we're here. Where here is 35 00:02:54.199 --> 00:03:00.520 as a kind of a broad spectrum of of Dayton comedians, because it's just 36 00:03:00.719 --> 00:03:06.319 some news broke last week and from what I can tell, it's a lot 37 00:03:06.400 --> 00:03:10.280 of mixed feelings. So apparently it's come out that that Dave Chappelle owns the 38 00:03:10.360 --> 00:03:15.719 building now, that while he's comedy clubs and doesn't own the club, he's 39 00:03:15.759 --> 00:03:21.039 the building's landlord now. And I've seen a lot of folks talking about it 40 00:03:21.039 --> 00:03:25.759 online and everyone just kind of seems to have some mixed feelings and it's starting 41 00:03:25.759 --> 00:03:30.560 to pop up in national news. So I think it's kind of worth doesn't 42 00:03:30.560 --> 00:03:34.759 really popping him. Yeah, I've seen it. Absolutely well, Dave is 43 00:03:34.840 --> 00:03:39.199 kind of land bearinging it right now, I mean springs, and he's gonna 44 00:03:39.000 --> 00:03:43.759 Gobble up loose something down there in Oregon here. I think it's genius on 45 00:03:43.800 --> 00:03:49.560 his part because like property, I mean the thing is owning properties a good 46 00:03:49.599 --> 00:03:54.840 thing. atomatic he bought that property and because he brought that property value, 47 00:03:54.879 --> 00:04:00.080 automatically one up on that property. The celebrity people people are also like Oh, 48 00:04:00.120 --> 00:04:04.319 like, like they're talking about like going back to Wiley's now, which, 49 00:04:04.319 --> 00:04:08.080 first of all, screw you, but second of all well, but 50 00:04:08.639 --> 00:04:14.199 my favorite is always that place still open so much. I actually I posted, 51 00:04:14.280 --> 00:04:16.240 I was I posted one of my clips on on Reddit the other day 52 00:04:16.399 --> 00:04:19.920 and somebody was like, he was like, Oh, Wiley's, oh I 53 00:04:20.000 --> 00:04:24.079 heard. I heard Dave bought the place and I was like no, he 54 00:04:24.120 --> 00:04:26.160 didn't. But if you want to hear more about it, listen to my 55 00:04:26.160 --> 00:04:32.480 podcast. Um, shameless plug, shameless plug it, of course I do. 56 00:04:33.480 --> 00:04:36.319 But yeah, it's I mean, yeah, it's sitting some nationals. 57 00:04:36.360 --> 00:04:40.720 I thought it was worth getting some both together and just kind of talking about 58 00:04:40.720 --> 00:04:44.800 it. And because I'm not from here, rare, I've only lived for 59 00:04:44.879 --> 00:04:48.319 seven years, so I know there's some history with Dave and Wiley's, but 60 00:04:48.360 --> 00:04:51.600 I don't know what it is that is. We considered like his home club 61 00:04:54.000 --> 00:05:00.160 of Um, because he was in the area. So yeah, Um, 62 00:05:00.120 --> 00:05:03.879 you would see him there a lot. You would see him at jokers which 63 00:05:03.959 --> 00:05:08.199 was the other club south of town. You'll see him out there occasionally too. 64 00:05:08.800 --> 00:05:12.720 Um, you know, David was just Dave is an animal to stand 65 00:05:12.800 --> 00:05:15.839 up, you know, it was just the guy you saw and you knew 66 00:05:16.279 --> 00:05:21.399 he had broke big young and that was just, at least to me around, 67 00:05:21.480 --> 00:05:25.720 it was just that was day, oh, hey, dave, whatever. 68 00:05:26.439 --> 00:05:32.160 Um, I don't know, man. I mean viewpoint wise, to 69 00:05:32.279 --> 00:05:36.120 me, I guess I look at it differently because I've seen the guy for 70 00:05:36.240 --> 00:05:40.160 years. I watched him put the work in. I mean, ship man, 71 00:05:40.399 --> 00:05:43.600 you got paid because you put the work in and if you want to 72 00:05:43.639 --> 00:05:47.920 do these things with your money, do these things with your money. Um, 73 00:05:48.040 --> 00:05:53.839 honestly, as far as him buying the building, a little relieve somebody 74 00:05:53.920 --> 00:05:57.839 was gonna buy it. Um, and because I heart left, I heart 75 00:05:57.920 --> 00:06:00.680 radio. Is Not in there anymore. There is radio. I've heard that 76 00:06:00.800 --> 00:06:06.600 term. That's some ancient form of communication. Yeah, it's more it's more 77 00:06:06.720 --> 00:06:14.920 like dashes. And No, I mean grandpants tricked off too. Moving to 78 00:06:14.959 --> 00:06:17.680 the Oregon district was such a great move for all those stations and Um, 79 00:06:17.720 --> 00:06:23.199 they all had their remote vans parked out there and it was it was really 80 00:06:23.279 --> 00:06:29.480 something. Okay, then radio died a very horrible debt o. That ship 81 00:06:29.560 --> 00:06:33.720 fucking burned whilets sank. Okay, Um, now, are there cocky radio 82 00:06:33.759 --> 00:06:36.519 personalities who, I am so glad, are out of a job? Yes, 83 00:06:38.439 --> 00:06:43.800 yes, and now those Dick Backs have podcasts. But but see, 84 00:06:43.800 --> 00:06:46.279 I can, I can still listen to my music without having to listen to 85 00:06:46.360 --> 00:06:51.000 them. And the best part is they're not pompous anymore because they're not gatekeepers 86 00:06:51.000 --> 00:06:55.519 anymore. Exactly, you know, and that was the thing. But yeah, 87 00:06:55.879 --> 00:06:59.079 yeah, that building is empty. So I had heard rumors of, 88 00:06:59.199 --> 00:07:01.920 you know, people to buy it and you know, let's face it, 89 00:07:02.000 --> 00:07:08.600 do what would make the most money? CONDOS? Yeah, because that's already 90 00:07:08.600 --> 00:07:12.079 happening down there. They're springing up. If they put in Condos, it's 91 00:07:12.120 --> 00:07:15.879 just a countdown to while he's would have to move. And this is already 92 00:07:15.920 --> 00:07:18.480 not the first place while he has been right. It was it was up 93 00:07:19.000 --> 00:07:21.160 um, I can't. I can't tell you what the name of the bar 94 00:07:21.319 --> 00:07:25.720 is now, but it was right there at Belmont, right at the corner 95 00:07:25.720 --> 00:07:31.759 of Patterson and some other streets. Oh, I know the area. But 96 00:07:31.839 --> 00:07:38.040 yeah, that was while he's Um, when I came in. And so, 97 00:07:38.240 --> 00:07:41.879 yeah, when when while he got that opportunity with the club down to 98 00:07:41.879 --> 00:07:45.040 the Oregon yeah, everybody thought it was yeah, it makes all the sense 99 00:07:45.040 --> 00:07:47.319 in the world. It did so much foot traffic down there, tons of 100 00:07:47.360 --> 00:07:54.279 traffic. Um. But yeah, I mean with Dave on the club. 101 00:07:54.319 --> 00:07:57.199 I still think Dave is gonna hopefully be a businessman at the end of the 102 00:07:57.279 --> 00:08:00.560 day and if it's time for the club to move on and find a location, 103 00:08:00.600 --> 00:08:03.800 maybe that's what needs to happen. I don't necessarily see that as a 104 00:08:03.839 --> 00:08:07.199 bad thing either. I think the clubs in a great location. Hopefully Dave 105 00:08:07.240 --> 00:08:13.160 thinks the same thing. But that I mean in devil's advocate. That back 106 00:08:13.240 --> 00:08:18.040 alley doesn't get foot traffic like it used to. Yeah, but you know 107 00:08:18.160 --> 00:08:22.639 what, every comedy club should have a back alley. I agree, I 108 00:08:22.680 --> 00:08:24.680 agree, but it's it's it's one of those it's like, because the building 109 00:08:24.759 --> 00:08:28.040 is so empty, it just looks like it is. Of course everyone's gonna 110 00:08:28.040 --> 00:08:31.039 think there's nothing in there, especially when you got a neon side that doesn't 111 00:08:31.039 --> 00:08:35.559 work well. And again, I think those are some of the things that 112 00:08:37.639 --> 00:08:41.639 make the club the club. I know it's Corny and you know I get 113 00:08:41.759 --> 00:08:46.600 get coming from, but I don't know. I just my hope is that 114 00:08:46.720 --> 00:08:50.559 the club will continue, the club will thrive. Do you really think about 115 00:08:50.600 --> 00:08:54.200 a pound for pound Dayton Ohio? The size that we are, the fact 116 00:08:54.200 --> 00:09:01.000 that we've sustained to comedy clubs better part of Twenty plus years, pretty fucking 117 00:09:01.039 --> 00:09:05.840 amazing. Consider the fact that they have such even though they're both comedy clubs, 118 00:09:05.840 --> 00:09:09.320 they have such different demographics well, and that's, I think, why 119 00:09:09.480 --> 00:09:16.840 they've survived. Is You could see earthquake one week and Rodney Carrington at literally 120 00:09:18.120 --> 00:09:24.480 at ends of town in the same weekend, or Haywood banks and Tony Rock 121 00:09:24.080 --> 00:09:30.919 same weekend. Little Dinky Ass Dayton, here you go and everybody's happy. 122 00:09:31.480 --> 00:09:33.120 You're good at while he's because you're a fan of comedy, not because you 123 00:09:33.240 --> 00:09:41.080 got free tickets. That is also Um, I view it as like I 124 00:09:41.159 --> 00:09:46.279 have this theory. My theory is that he wants to start his own chain. 125 00:09:48.000 --> 00:09:50.559 I did think about it, like why else would you buy? Why 126 00:09:50.559 --> 00:09:54.039 would you buy that? But I mean property value wise. But like he's 127 00:09:54.080 --> 00:09:56.399 talking about doing the reellow springs thing. He's not doing that. He's taking 128 00:09:56.480 --> 00:10:00.000 he's doing the yellow springs. Okay, so he's gonna have his own joint 129 00:10:00.080 --> 00:10:03.039 in yellow springs? Why? So? Why not see how that goes? 130 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:07.320 And then because I think Whiley is lease is up in a few years. 131 00:10:07.000 --> 00:10:09.519 So leases up. See, like I was like, Oh man, well, 132 00:10:09.559 --> 00:10:13.480 my thing, yellow springs, a good get businessman, go my thin 133 00:10:13.600 --> 00:10:16.799 yell spring is doing great and making this amount of money. Why not buy 134 00:10:18.559 --> 00:10:22.320 Wiley's after out of their lease or their leases up by it turn not into 135 00:10:22.360 --> 00:10:26.080 a club as well, and then constantly, because he can buy whatever he 136 00:10:26.120 --> 00:10:28.639 wants at this point, turned into a club. So I mean, like 137 00:10:28.600 --> 00:10:33.559 the amount of money to take just because it's a historic building has always been, 138 00:10:33.559 --> 00:10:39.799 I think, the prohibitive factor about while he's remodeling and opening up, 139 00:10:39.960 --> 00:10:41.600 you know, doing this and that, because well, plus, you had, 140 00:10:41.639 --> 00:10:46.000 I heart, owned or they releasing all that other space. But now 141 00:10:46.039 --> 00:10:50.120 you've actually got an opportunity to, you know, really take the club to 142 00:10:50.159 --> 00:10:54.559 the next level as far as do some remodeling, space out the show and 143 00:10:54.600 --> 00:10:56.480 not steal money for a bunch of people. When you say you're going to 144 00:10:56.559 --> 00:11:05.080 do that. I'm sorry, that was not laundry day. No, but 145 00:11:05.159 --> 00:11:09.320 I lost money. Um, Jeff, as a as a newer guy, 146 00:11:09.759 --> 00:11:13.840 how are you feeling about all this. Um, I guess I'm just I'm 147 00:11:13.879 --> 00:11:18.480 anxious, I'd say. I don't want to UH assume anything. I don't 148 00:11:18.480 --> 00:11:22.840 want to get excited or I don't wanna be like ah ship now, because 149 00:11:22.840 --> 00:11:26.159 there there is a lot of whispers and a lot of opinions, uh, 150 00:11:26.159 --> 00:11:31.279 in the scene. A Lot that I've heard is if he, like you 151 00:11:31.320 --> 00:11:35.720 said, Mike, Starts this chain of clubs, that it might be an 152 00:11:35.720 --> 00:11:41.679 outrageous price and it it might just be more mainstream comedians instead of supporting the 153 00:11:41.720 --> 00:11:45.720 local scene, as Wiley's has done for decades. And Uh, I personally, 154 00:11:45.759 --> 00:11:48.720 I just I don't see that, because I think the past couple of 155 00:11:48.840 --> 00:11:54.080 years how big Dave's gotten. They've kind of, uh, almost changed the 156 00:11:54.200 --> 00:11:56.960 narrative a little bit to where he's, uh, he's still this guy who 157 00:11:58.159 --> 00:12:00.840 who quit comedy. He loves comedy at school, like you said, Jesse, 158 00:12:01.000 --> 00:12:03.919 he's just a fucking he loves to yeah, he's, he's still, 159 00:12:05.039 --> 00:12:07.679 he's still, just a bad guy, exactly. And you've got nothing to 160 00:12:07.679 --> 00:12:09.679 worry about because you always gonna have a stage. You got, Car Michaels, 161 00:12:11.080 --> 00:12:13.039 you're doing the hustle the right way, car Michael, every Tuesday guy. 162 00:12:13.080 --> 00:12:18.120 Thank you. Every Tuesday, these guys are putting a grind on, 163 00:12:18.960 --> 00:12:22.120 so you'll always have a place to play. And that's what I'm saying. 164 00:12:22.320 --> 00:12:26.679 And at the at the core, who Dave Chappelle is? He respects guys 165 00:12:26.440 --> 00:12:31.120 like myself. Shout out Jarelle beam and Kyle Kemper. He's Uh, I'm 166 00:12:31.159 --> 00:12:33.919 not saying I'm in the same category Darrell, with Darrell hit me on the 167 00:12:33.960 --> 00:12:39.039 shoulder right now, but I'm just saying he respects people that are grinding, 168 00:12:39.679 --> 00:12:43.320 get on that take the opportunities that are given to him and run with him. 169 00:12:43.399 --> 00:12:46.440 And I think if he does start a club, I don't think US 170 00:12:46.480 --> 00:12:48.960 local comedians will have to worry that much. I viewed it as like your 171 00:12:48.960 --> 00:12:52.720 headliners would have been, to me, your features, and your features will 172 00:12:52.759 --> 00:12:54.559 then be your host so have locals. Yeah, you see what I'm saying? 173 00:12:54.639 --> 00:12:58.080 Yeah, everybody kind of goes down to basically that's all it is. 174 00:12:58.279 --> 00:13:03.320 And then again time, all the time, we still have this like the 175 00:13:03.360 --> 00:13:09.399 Sunday comics and all that. And definitely because, considering how much that room 176 00:13:09.440 --> 00:13:15.200 fills out every other week anyway, I'd be ridiculously I think he loves comedy 177 00:13:15.200 --> 00:13:18.159 at Core Anyway. So it's like one of those things. It's he knows 178 00:13:18.200 --> 00:13:22.799 what type of club it is and he knows the type of people go there. 179 00:13:22.200 --> 00:13:24.320 You Walk in there, you know exactly what kind of Plat you're in 180 00:13:26.039 --> 00:13:31.039 and just like I mean it's almost like your it's your independent comedy club, 181 00:13:31.120 --> 00:13:33.679 that you go there because you want to see comedy. Yeah, you want 182 00:13:33.720 --> 00:13:37.600 to see like it's the working class comics room. Well, but it's also 183 00:13:39.600 --> 00:13:46.679 indicative of the fact that a lot of what people understand is the comedy boom 184 00:13:46.279 --> 00:13:52.480 started the Midwest and it started in places like Wiley's and go bananas, Um 185 00:13:54.080 --> 00:13:58.720 Down in Cincinna, independent clubs that, for the most part, we're run 186 00:13:58.720 --> 00:14:03.600 by investors, but people that really loved comedy and they would take chances on 187 00:14:03.759 --> 00:14:09.960 people, you know, Um, features that got that headlining slot and they 188 00:14:09.000 --> 00:14:16.320 got those shots first at clubs like Wiley's and and and jokers and and go 189 00:14:16.519 --> 00:14:20.000 bananas, in places like that. Um, they gave him that shot. 190 00:14:20.120 --> 00:14:22.840 It was like that. She used to give what's your face used to give 191 00:14:22.879 --> 00:14:28.559 Hedburg all the jokers, but Hedberg wasn't even big at the time and I 192 00:14:28.559 --> 00:14:33.720 think they hated him then they Um, there were definitely some crowds, a 193 00:14:33.720 --> 00:14:37.720 lot. There were a lot of crowds that just did not get it at 194 00:14:37.840 --> 00:14:41.600 first. Well, but think about okay, what if Edburg was the M 195 00:14:41.679 --> 00:14:46.559 C at your show? Oh God, yeah, you see him do an 196 00:14:46.600 --> 00:14:52.120 MC bit? I saw a video one time. I was like yeah, 197 00:14:52.600 --> 00:14:56.200 and I was like, Oh my God, he was just like yeah, 198 00:14:56.240 --> 00:14:58.759 because, like they did not like him at all. No, well, 199 00:14:58.799 --> 00:15:01.080 I mean they didn't like him at as own comedy central special either. Anybody 200 00:15:01.159 --> 00:15:05.000 do you know why that was actual they did not. Okay, yeah, 201 00:15:05.000 --> 00:15:09.960 because I got peeped to this. Yeah, the people in the audience were 202 00:15:09.000 --> 00:15:13.360 basically there to see a comedy show. They did not know who it was 203 00:15:13.840 --> 00:15:18.720 gonna be. H that was part of the problem. The other part of 204 00:15:18.720 --> 00:15:20.879 the problem was Mitch was trying out new ship on him instead of doing the 205 00:15:20.919 --> 00:15:24.799 tried and true. When you watch it, when he goes to the tribe 206 00:15:24.799 --> 00:15:28.440 and true ship, then you hear them start to laugh more and then they 207 00:15:28.440 --> 00:15:31.559 start getting into it. But yeah, that thing was doomed from the start. 208 00:15:31.879 --> 00:15:33.919 That's why he just gives up part way through and just sits down, 209 00:15:33.840 --> 00:15:37.360 which is great. I love when he does. I did that in a 210 00:15:37.399 --> 00:15:41.600 contest one time. I knew. I knew because it was like I turned 211 00:15:41.600 --> 00:15:46.759 to my fiance at the time, Melissa, not my wife. I was 212 00:15:46.799 --> 00:15:50.440 like because the average age of the audience at the finals at a comedy contest 213 00:15:50.720 --> 00:15:54.960 was like sixty five, and I was like, Oh, they're gonna hate 214 00:15:54.559 --> 00:15:58.799 me. I literally like this is an accurate no, youngstown. I literally 215 00:15:58.120 --> 00:16:03.200 before I got to say was like listen, if I turned my stage, 216 00:16:03.399 --> 00:16:07.200 my back to the audience, I just walked the stage like the outer banks 217 00:16:07.200 --> 00:16:10.600 of the stage. I've given up. And then I had to do fift 218 00:16:10.799 --> 00:16:12.200 minutes. Oh my God, and like I literally was like all right, 219 00:16:12.320 --> 00:16:15.639 and I too jokes in. I was didn't worked. I didn't know. 220 00:16:15.759 --> 00:16:18.320 I joke that, you know, a joke that actually works, and it 221 00:16:18.399 --> 00:16:21.440 was just like silence. I was like all right, so I just start 222 00:16:21.519 --> 00:16:25.320 walking the edge of the stage, like all the way in the back. 223 00:16:25.399 --> 00:16:26.559 Oh, like I did. I did all my time. You know, 224 00:16:26.720 --> 00:16:30.000 I'm saying how many minutes into you're like fuck it, oh, like a 225 00:16:30.080 --> 00:16:37.559 minute. That quick right away, and I was actually picked favorited the win. 226 00:16:37.480 --> 00:16:40.639 They told me, like the judges told me, a couple of judges 227 00:16:40.639 --> 00:16:41.399 told me because they'd watched me. They're like, yeah, we had you 228 00:16:41.480 --> 00:16:45.200 favored the whole thing and I was like they fucking hey, and I just 229 00:16:45.240 --> 00:16:48.679 literally just walked the outer thing. I was like, fucking I don't give 230 00:16:48.759 --> 00:16:53.320 us ship right now. It was at Franklin Taburn last week because right before 231 00:16:53.360 --> 00:17:00.639 I get there Kevin messages me like my hosting and I was like this your 232 00:17:00.679 --> 00:17:03.840 show, I mean, I guess, and he was like I just don't 233 00:17:03.840 --> 00:17:07.240 feel like doing it at the night and I was like no, no, 234 00:17:07.480 --> 00:17:11.480 I actually did that a couple of weeks ago him and and that's the he 235 00:17:11.519 --> 00:17:15.440 was always like every time, well, the Saturday ones that Franklin's happens, 236 00:17:15.440 --> 00:17:19.079 are always full of people. It's always great. There was fucking nobody on 237 00:17:19.119 --> 00:17:22.440 a Saturday. It's always been. I was so I was so pissed. 238 00:17:22.480 --> 00:17:25.640 I was because I will, because you know, I will never say no 239 00:17:25.759 --> 00:17:26.799 to Kevin Anything he asked me to do. I will say yes, except 240 00:17:26.799 --> 00:17:30.319 when he asked me to host the last minute now. But he was like, 241 00:17:30.480 --> 00:17:33.599 dude, it's always packed, it's always packed. I get there, 242 00:17:33.599 --> 00:17:34.720 there's like two guys at the bar and as soon as we said we were 243 00:17:34.720 --> 00:17:38.440 starting the comedy part, they walked side. I went up, I did 244 00:17:38.559 --> 00:17:42.440 I did three of my five minutes and I fucking left. I also was 245 00:17:42.480 --> 00:17:45.519 feeling like ship that day, but I almost didn't go to the show period 246 00:17:45.559 --> 00:17:48.720 because I thought I was gonna throw up a lot of the Times. And 247 00:17:48.759 --> 00:17:52.359 if if you're if you host there, you're a redneck wrangler. That's what 248 00:17:52.480 --> 00:17:55.200 you're like trying to well, and that's I went there. I was there 249 00:17:55.200 --> 00:17:56.480 the first time he did a show at Franklin and it was that that was 250 00:17:56.519 --> 00:17:59.839 the night of the only person there was the owner and his buddy and they 251 00:18:00.400 --> 00:18:03.519 hammered when the show started. Were you there? I Know Caleb was there. 252 00:18:04.039 --> 00:18:07.160 I don't think you were there. You did. You did the next 253 00:18:07.200 --> 00:18:08.880 one. You did the one after that and it was a rough night. 254 00:18:11.039 --> 00:18:11.960 The one I did, not the one you did. I think I heard 255 00:18:12.000 --> 00:18:15.680 that was that was a night. Some dude after the show was like Hey, 256 00:18:15.720 --> 00:18:18.519 I did blackface one time and started like yes, yeah, yeah, 257 00:18:18.720 --> 00:18:21.799 that was a that was a night Franklin tavern. Maybe that actually happened a 258 00:18:21.799 --> 00:18:23.880 week later at a different venue, a different guy too, and Franklin, 259 00:18:25.000 --> 00:18:30.000 Jesus Christ, shout out Franklin. Maybe. What what did you what do 260 00:18:30.079 --> 00:18:33.839 you want to happen to the I don't know because, and I've told you 261 00:18:33.880 --> 00:18:37.359 about this, I don't really have like feelings on Dave Chappelle period. I 262 00:18:37.519 --> 00:18:41.000 didn't grow up watching the show. I'm not from around here, so like 263 00:18:41.039 --> 00:18:45.000 I don't have that like hometown vibe of him. I was not allowed to 264 00:18:45.000 --> 00:18:48.680 watch his show growing up. I don't know that it's really as much of 265 00:18:48.680 --> 00:18:52.519 a hometown because, I mean the guy was from d C. He's not 266 00:18:53.359 --> 00:18:56.880 people. Yeah, but as I think, I don't know that. I'm 267 00:18:56.880 --> 00:19:00.480 not a lived out here when they're. Probably it was like, you know, 268 00:19:00.559 --> 00:19:04.480 his people, Yellow Springs, you know, kind of that the bastion 269 00:19:04.519 --> 00:19:10.759 of the boogie black. But you know, he wasn't really here here. 270 00:19:11.359 --> 00:19:12.960 You know, he was just he was the guy that grew up in D 271 00:19:14.079 --> 00:19:18.119 C, your East Coast Guy, and he would come here to visit his 272 00:19:18.200 --> 00:19:22.920 peeps. Um, that's how like you would see like coming up, I 273 00:19:22.920 --> 00:19:26.599 would say, like dl Hugeley give people up in Clumbus. So you would 274 00:19:26.640 --> 00:19:30.400 see him pop in, you know, as he was, you know, 275 00:19:30.519 --> 00:19:34.160 kind of climbing. He would just pop in and just murder. Ye. 276 00:19:36.119 --> 00:19:37.440 See. See for me, because I'm an outsider, I always the way 277 00:19:37.640 --> 00:19:41.960 the way it was always described to me made it sound like he was just 278 00:19:41.039 --> 00:19:45.079 fucking around here all the time. I wouldn't say that. I mean, 279 00:19:47.119 --> 00:19:49.839 well, I really don't know any better. You saw him, you know, 280 00:19:51.039 --> 00:19:53.480 from time to time, and then you would see him like in between 281 00:19:53.559 --> 00:19:57.359 projects. Yeah, he's hanging out, but most of the time it was 282 00:19:57.359 --> 00:20:03.200 about his money. I keep it real. Okay, I mean respect, 283 00:20:03.440 --> 00:20:06.200 but yeah, but yeah, for me, like, I'm not sitting here 284 00:20:06.240 --> 00:20:07.880 like I don't have a lover or hate thing with Dave Chappelle at all. 285 00:20:07.960 --> 00:20:11.240 To me it's just like, yeah, it was a great comic but like, 286 00:20:11.400 --> 00:20:14.279 but, like, I haven't seen any of his Netflix. But I 287 00:20:14.279 --> 00:20:17.079 don't, but I don't watch. I think it's weird for people because it's 288 00:20:17.119 --> 00:20:21.559 like because of the current. He lives in yellow springs, like he's as 289 00:20:21.599 --> 00:20:25.200 popular as he is. And you're like why yellow springs, right Dayton, 290 00:20:25.480 --> 00:20:29.319 that area? Oh, no, that makes perfect but because nobody's sucking there. 291 00:20:29.480 --> 00:20:30.720 That's what you're saying, is like. But people don't get that for 292 00:20:30.759 --> 00:20:33.720 how popular it is, because they because they don't know yellow spring, like 293 00:20:33.759 --> 00:20:37.559 if they're not felling around here, like why would you if you're so popular? 294 00:20:37.599 --> 00:20:38.960 And all that and you're considered the greatest. You why do you live 295 00:20:40.039 --> 00:20:44.960 here? I'll not remember when he did look because honestly, everybody just kind 296 00:20:44.960 --> 00:20:48.400 of leaves him alone. Number One, what a great place to raise your 297 00:20:48.480 --> 00:20:52.440 kids. I love yellowing. It can be they are right, especially once 298 00:20:52.480 --> 00:20:59.160 we gets legalized. It's not even in yellow springs. It is mean. 299 00:20:59.240 --> 00:21:00.720 You know, I grew up hiking out there and you know, you go 300 00:21:00.880 --> 00:21:03.279 up there and you know, take your kids to young's dairy, you know 301 00:21:03.799 --> 00:21:07.119 ship. Um. I always like yellow springs because one of those places, 302 00:21:07.160 --> 00:21:12.519 at least for me and a lot of people, it was a place you 303 00:21:12.559 --> 00:21:18.279 could go if you were dating interracially or if you weren't openly gate, because 304 00:21:18.400 --> 00:21:22.319 it's a very progressive walk down the street. I'm talking like you know, 305 00:21:22.880 --> 00:21:29.720 I'll age myself in the nineteen seventies, like seventies, nobody batted an eye. 306 00:21:30.240 --> 00:21:33.799 It was a place where nobody yelled out of car windows unless it was 307 00:21:34.000 --> 00:21:37.880 hey, you're looking for a smoke. You know that stuff, really hippie 308 00:21:37.920 --> 00:21:42.119 ship, but you didn't get any of that. There was none of that 309 00:21:42.200 --> 00:21:45.400 Rednecki hate. There was none of that. It's like it's got that feel 310 00:21:45.440 --> 00:21:52.400 of a small town without like the closed off small town bullshit that usually comes 311 00:21:52.480 --> 00:21:53.480 with. Oh No, there are plenty of elitist now, don't get it 312 00:21:53.519 --> 00:21:56.160 to you know I'm talking. I'm talking like the like. Usually go to 313 00:21:56.200 --> 00:21:59.839 these small towns and it's like you're described as a lot of it's a lot 314 00:21:59.839 --> 00:22:02.440 of Hicks that have never met a gay man in their life. So they 315 00:22:03.079 --> 00:22:07.559 it's it's you got hippies and you got hippie snobs. But, UM, 316 00:22:07.839 --> 00:22:11.680 every group's got their snobs, but they it's just I've always liked it because 317 00:22:11.680 --> 00:22:15.359 it's a mad chill place to go. I'm out there like at least once 318 00:22:15.359 --> 00:22:19.279 a month. I love great foods. I dig it. Always Wings. 319 00:22:19.359 --> 00:22:23.920 They got wings out there. Yes, a lot of people real quick. 320 00:22:23.920 --> 00:22:27.640 A lot of people forget how much Dave actually does love daton. I remember 321 00:22:27.960 --> 00:22:32.400 he does. It really occurred to me that Jim city shine, that he 322 00:22:32.440 --> 00:22:36.160 go on right after the organ on the shooting. Wow like that. That 323 00:22:36.279 --> 00:22:38.880 was crazy. I saw a hundreds of thousands of people, just people went 324 00:22:38.960 --> 00:22:41.599 there. And how long did that take him to put it together? Basically, 325 00:22:41.680 --> 00:22:45.799 they got on his phone week, called some friends, bing, Bang, 326 00:22:45.839 --> 00:22:49.000 boo, there they are. Because that I saw chance, the rapper 327 00:22:49.160 --> 00:22:56.240 live and I've always been a chance around Wayne and and then Jon Stewart in 328 00:22:56.279 --> 00:23:00.559 the morning, because in the morning you was with Kanye at chat. I 329 00:23:00.559 --> 00:23:04.720 mean it was although my favorite thing, Aaron Fellis ever tell you his story 330 00:23:04.759 --> 00:23:10.519 about how it had. Steve Saw stevie wonder not to sing in the morning 331 00:23:10.519 --> 00:23:14.920 because obviously feathers and he like like heard and practicing in the morning, and 332 00:23:14.920 --> 00:23:17.920 he just waved at him and he went, why did I just wave? 333 00:23:22.400 --> 00:23:26.200 For the rest of his life that I did. That gim shine was phibly 334 00:23:26.200 --> 00:23:30.640 one of the is a top ten moment of my life exactly because, like, 335 00:23:32.119 --> 00:23:33.799 well, especially considering what we had literally just gone through, and like 336 00:23:33.839 --> 00:23:38.640 because I was I was off camping when when the shooting happened, and within 337 00:23:38.839 --> 00:23:41.400 by the time I got back, like it was like my first or second 338 00:23:41.480 --> 00:23:45.640 day back at work at the new station, they're like yeah, I would 339 00:23:45.640 --> 00:23:48.200 set it out reporters down. I was like what, what's going on downtown, 340 00:23:48.200 --> 00:23:51.119 because I hadn't been here to fucking hear about it, and they're like, 341 00:23:51.119 --> 00:23:52.640 oh, yeah, Dave's puttings, putting together this fucking thing, and 342 00:23:52.640 --> 00:23:56.680 I was like where it was? where? And then I saw the footage 343 00:23:56.680 --> 00:24:02.440 and I was like God, yeah, and you know, if you were 344 00:24:02.440 --> 00:24:07.279 a comic, you know you were smacked out in the middle of that pretty 345 00:24:07.279 --> 00:24:11.640 easily, you know, hanging out at the club. Clubs opens. They 346 00:24:11.640 --> 00:24:17.039 gave everybody tickets a day and a certain amount of people tickets date and residents. 347 00:24:17.079 --> 00:24:18.079 But, like, I got in. I came in the Wiley. 348 00:24:18.079 --> 00:24:22.039 It's like super, super can get in. Well, plus all you have 349 00:24:22.079 --> 00:24:25.079 to say, because while he has had like what like a drinks? Yeah, 350 00:24:25.079 --> 00:24:26.759 standards. I was like, yeah, just say you're going there to 351 00:24:27.359 --> 00:24:30.799 yeah, they had a big beer truck and it was just it was it 352 00:24:30.880 --> 00:24:33.920 was a wonderful day, but not just right. I mean like that's that's 353 00:24:33.960 --> 00:24:38.240 one of those things that's like obviously he still has his heart rooted in this 354 00:24:38.359 --> 00:24:42.119 town and at least to some degree to put something like that together, because 355 00:24:44.279 --> 00:24:48.599 I didn't see any other fucking towns doing something like that. After well, 356 00:24:48.640 --> 00:24:51.920 it's it's rare. I mean you always see about artists getting together and trying 357 00:24:51.960 --> 00:24:55.920 to do something to heal the community Um, and it's good that we've got 358 00:24:56.000 --> 00:25:00.720 somebody like that, uh, at that level of statue. Well, you 359 00:25:00.799 --> 00:25:03.319 can make those calls and plus this was this was that a part of town 360 00:25:03.440 --> 00:25:08.799 that is known for being like the center of the nightlife. It's the nightlife, 361 00:25:08.799 --> 00:25:14.400 social life central, and yeah, like that can easily put a damper 362 00:25:14.440 --> 00:25:18.400 on people wanting to go out and and but I was actually kind of impressed 363 00:25:18.400 --> 00:25:22.240 with how much it didn't even prior to because people were just kind of like, 364 00:25:23.319 --> 00:25:30.000 funk it, it's our town man, like no, it's it was. 365 00:25:30.559 --> 00:25:33.240 It was a horrible, horrible thing. Um, I still have my 366 00:25:33.400 --> 00:25:45.000 moments just because I still am so thankful and so realistically thankful, because on 367 00:25:45.039 --> 00:25:49.079 any other Saturday night there would have been at least five or six different comics 368 00:25:49.480 --> 00:25:53.279 by knowing love. That would have been in the line of five just standing 369 00:25:53.319 --> 00:25:59.759 around doing what we do every fucking Saturday night, and nobody can explain why, 370 00:25:59.799 --> 00:26:03.799 on that particular Saturday night, none of us. Yeah, notice nobody, 371 00:26:04.160 --> 00:26:08.720 nobody was there. Everybody, everybody went home. I was in a 372 00:26:08.799 --> 00:26:14.519 town, somebody, everybody was somewhere else. And not only that, because, 373 00:26:14.559 --> 00:26:15.519 like, because when I found out about it, because I was I 374 00:26:15.559 --> 00:26:18.119 was out camping, and the next morning I woke up to like a billion 375 00:26:18.200 --> 00:26:22.920 phone calls and ship like, because people knew I lived in Dat and when. 376 00:26:22.119 --> 00:26:27.200 So my brother at the time lived above feathers and him and his girlfriend 377 00:26:27.200 --> 00:26:30.480 at the time both worked at one of the news stations. So like they 378 00:26:30.480 --> 00:26:32.720 were getting calls from the news stage like you guys come in there, like 379 00:26:32.799 --> 00:26:36.519 no, we're here, like we're not coming in. And then also a 380 00:26:36.519 --> 00:26:38.720 friend of mine's a bartender there and a girl I was seeing at the time 381 00:26:40.000 --> 00:26:41.960 was at the bar. She left like ten minutes before the ship went down. 382 00:26:42.000 --> 00:26:47.039 So I'm like just like and then none of the comics were there. 383 00:26:47.279 --> 00:26:52.119 Like a lot of people got hurt hung outside of feathers. So so it's 384 00:26:52.160 --> 00:26:56.640 just kind of crazy to me. That's like I think Dj danglar forgiving me 385 00:26:56.799 --> 00:27:02.119 edible that night. That's Super Out, shout out. I really I will 386 00:27:02.119 --> 00:27:06.720 always remember that because like Dj is there and he's like you want edible, 387 00:27:06.720 --> 00:27:11.799 because in Dj and I was like yeah, I had Melissa with me and 388 00:27:11.880 --> 00:27:15.400 like I was inedible and I got super fucking high and I was like, 389 00:27:15.440 --> 00:27:22.519 Melissa, you gotta drive his home, like and then Aaron and all of 390 00:27:22.559 --> 00:27:29.279 them went to Indianapolis for something. It was the more when you say that 391 00:27:29.599 --> 00:27:33.039 it is amazing that nobody was there. I've never thought about that. Actually, 392 00:27:33.279 --> 00:27:38.000 nobody and again, and we always all hang out any Saturday night. 393 00:27:38.160 --> 00:27:44.759 Yeah, there could be any number of people from the comedy community, from 394 00:27:44.799 --> 00:27:48.799 different generations of the comedy community that would be at any one of the it 395 00:27:48.839 --> 00:27:51.160 could have been it could have been you and you weren't around the time, 396 00:27:51.200 --> 00:27:52.440 but, Jeff, it could have easily been you as well. I went 397 00:27:52.440 --> 00:27:55.839 there with my friends at the time. I actually found out from Kevin Garnett 398 00:27:56.200 --> 00:27:57.839 on online. I checked my instagram as soon as I woke up and he 399 00:27:57.880 --> 00:28:00.599 posted about this city that I lived in my entire life. I was like, 400 00:28:00.640 --> 00:28:06.079 what the fuck, and I actually found out like four days later because 401 00:28:06.079 --> 00:28:07.640 we were thinking about going down there that night. But four days later I 402 00:28:07.680 --> 00:28:12.440 found out that I knew the guy. I went to sinclair with him semester 403 00:28:12.680 --> 00:28:17.279 previous and I actually had his number on my phone. We did a couple 404 00:28:17.279 --> 00:28:21.799 of projects together. No, ship. Yeah, the part that I hate 405 00:28:21.920 --> 00:28:25.880 is I thought he was hilarious. I was like, yeah, that was 406 00:28:25.920 --> 00:28:30.839 the worst when I was like laughing at all his dark jokes. They weren't 407 00:28:30.839 --> 00:28:34.200 really they weren't really at all man and so, yeah, that that was 408 00:28:34.240 --> 00:28:37.519 the part. I was like, Oh, ship, so that Jim city 409 00:28:37.519 --> 00:28:41.480 shine really hit home for me because I realized like I was feet away from 410 00:28:41.480 --> 00:28:44.200 evil, like I com communicated with it, and Oh that'll dude. That 411 00:28:44.359 --> 00:28:45.359 if I, if I had realized, like if that had happened, I 412 00:28:45.359 --> 00:28:51.799 can't even imagine like that fucking feeling of like this guy I have personal contact 413 00:28:51.839 --> 00:28:55.720 information with like that. You know, you're smithielist. Yeah, like, 414 00:28:55.720 --> 00:29:00.759 Oh, no, yeah, they know everything about you. You're circumcised UNCIRCUMSTANCES. 415 00:29:00.799 --> 00:29:08.599 He laughed at his jokes. Um, yeah, so I I'm one 416 00:29:08.640 --> 00:29:11.920 of those guys. I can see this going like one of a million different 417 00:29:11.920 --> 00:29:15.920 ways. And we're not but we're not going to know until it happens either 418 00:29:15.079 --> 00:29:18.559 because, like I said, it could be really good, it could be 419 00:29:18.599 --> 00:29:22.279 really bad or it could mean nothing. I honestly don't think it can be 420 00:29:22.359 --> 00:29:23.759 really bad. Well, I mean I think they've owned he's owned it for 421 00:29:23.759 --> 00:29:29.079 a while too. Oh really, I think it's been like six months and 422 00:29:29.119 --> 00:29:33.319 they're just not purchase. Yeah, I think that it just broke the news 423 00:29:33.319 --> 00:29:37.759 because they have been trying to fig out who bought. Yeah, but I 424 00:29:37.759 --> 00:29:40.119 didn't know that the building had already been bought and I thought it was still 425 00:29:40.160 --> 00:29:42.279 up for sale. We should have started with this holy ship, very the 426 00:29:42.400 --> 00:29:47.680 lead mother. I think that's how I think they've had it for a while. 427 00:29:47.839 --> 00:29:51.759 I'm pulling it up and it might not be something that necessarily wanted to 428 00:29:51.880 --> 00:29:53.799 you know, news release all. Yeah, it's just like I think they 429 00:29:53.799 --> 00:29:57.960 want digging for it and somebody found out. Well, because, yeah, 430 00:29:59.000 --> 00:30:02.359 anytime any proper you down in the Oregon district goes up, they want to 431 00:30:02.359 --> 00:30:04.839 know who's buying it and what they intend to do with it. Yeah, 432 00:30:04.880 --> 00:30:08.759 you know, Oh, absolutely well, especially because there's there's a whole organization, 433 00:30:08.799 --> 00:30:11.920 like there's so many rules and stuff for like how you can look the 434 00:30:11.960 --> 00:30:17.519 preservation are entrenched in the Oregan yeah, I'm from I'm from a town of 435 00:30:17.559 --> 00:30:18.960 South Carolinas. It was the same funking way. They were like all the 436 00:30:18.960 --> 00:30:25.319 buildings have to like look a door. Do you know what kind of fucking 437 00:30:25.359 --> 00:30:33.440 debauchery goes on here at night? They don't care the exteriors. Just constant 438 00:30:33.480 --> 00:30:38.039 fucking, just constant, rigorous fucking. You ever heard of but plug door? 439 00:30:38.279 --> 00:30:45.119 I don't know where I'm going. The Preservation Nazis in the Oregon district 440 00:30:45.400 --> 00:30:48.680 and again giving my age away, I'm one of those people who can remember 441 00:30:48.960 --> 00:30:53.960 when that entire district that's where you went if you had a fetish to pee 442 00:30:55.079 --> 00:31:02.200 outside. It was it was the nasty part of date. Okay, Fifth 443 00:31:02.200 --> 00:31:06.880 Street, once you got past he bought it. Railroad tracks. He bought 444 00:31:06.880 --> 00:31:12.319 it. That was pist out, maybe because there were no shops, which 445 00:31:12.960 --> 00:31:17.160 when nobody's gonna tell on you if they saw you down. He is. 446 00:31:17.200 --> 00:31:19.920 I know some things. I'm going off. The article says he the article 447 00:31:19.960 --> 00:31:23.599 says he bought it an I know somebody told me some things. Okay, 448 00:31:23.680 --> 00:31:26.319 this is off the record. Mike cut that cut that he knows a guy 449 00:31:26.319 --> 00:31:29.240 who makes a guy, you know, the guy. I'm not cutting ship. 450 00:31:29.319 --> 00:31:30.920 I don't cut the girl. Somebody told me some things. They might. 451 00:31:32.880 --> 00:31:36.400 Yeah, you had so. Yeah, okay, well, that that's 452 00:31:36.440 --> 00:31:40.279 definitely an interesting thing. I mean I get people's apprehension. I think. 453 00:31:40.359 --> 00:31:42.759 I think ultimate it's gonna it's gonna just out to Ben thing. But okay, 454 00:31:42.920 --> 00:31:47.839 he the worst case scenario to me is, all right, let's say 455 00:31:47.880 --> 00:31:49.319 he bought it because he needs a loss. I've been making a lot of 456 00:31:49.319 --> 00:31:53.440 money. Yeah, yes, alright, a point, also, a very 457 00:31:53.440 --> 00:31:56.400 good point. Yeah, alright, making a lot of money, needs a 458 00:31:56.440 --> 00:31:59.440 loss. That means he leaves the club open. Yeah, that means he 459 00:31:59.480 --> 00:32:02.319 hires a bunch of shitty comics. Dayton, will you have work? That's 460 00:32:02.319 --> 00:32:06.960 true. I'm a shitty comic that needs work. Okay, so I mean 461 00:32:07.200 --> 00:32:09.680 that to me. Would be the worst case scenario is he operates it as 462 00:32:09.680 --> 00:32:13.960 a law and there's plenty of comedy clubs that have always been operated that way. 463 00:32:14.240 --> 00:32:16.079 You know, you get there as a comic and you wonder, okay, 464 00:32:16.079 --> 00:32:19.960 why is this fucking place still? Yeah, there's one in Indian apples 465 00:32:19.799 --> 00:32:24.000 that there have been twelve people here for three shows. Why are we still? 466 00:32:24.960 --> 00:32:30.279 Because somebody needs a loss and that's why you're there. They're laundering some 467 00:32:30.319 --> 00:32:32.799 fucking mob money, and you know what, that's okay, okay, as 468 00:32:34.240 --> 00:32:37.160 long as Vinnie pays me. Yeah, as long as I got a stage 469 00:32:37.160 --> 00:32:43.279 to stand on. All Right, I'm not here to I know what I 470 00:32:43.319 --> 00:32:46.480 know. If I if I ever see some white guy named Marty in the 471 00:32:46.559 --> 00:32:54.000 back, there's some money laundering a Mike this week. You want me to 472 00:32:54.000 --> 00:32:55.720 pay you? When? You want me to pay you in cash? Will 473 00:32:55.759 --> 00:33:00.440 pay you in steaks? I don't know. My friendge a litt am taking 474 00:33:00.599 --> 00:33:05.880 some steaks just fucking kills a cow. From God, that would be hilarious, 475 00:33:05.920 --> 00:33:08.160 not for the cow for that, but yeah, with with with his 476 00:33:08.240 --> 00:33:12.799 love for Dayton. That that that building has always been going like that. 477 00:33:12.799 --> 00:33:15.720 That's been going downhill for a while. Somebody with money has control of the 478 00:33:15.720 --> 00:33:20.680 decisions. That's that's a good thing. If he changes it to an art 479 00:33:20.680 --> 00:33:22.279 center, I mean, you know what I mean, like it could be. 480 00:33:22.519 --> 00:33:23.960 There's some of stuff you could do with that building. That's what I'm 481 00:33:24.000 --> 00:33:29.559 in because that's a that's a prime space. Um, I think there's some 482 00:33:29.640 --> 00:33:34.400 really inventive, productive things that be done with the space, whether he does 483 00:33:34.559 --> 00:33:38.680 uses it for business or just as an artistic space. I mean, like 484 00:33:39.680 --> 00:33:44.079 we joke about radio being dead. I mean, my heart took very good 485 00:33:44.119 --> 00:33:45.880 care of their junk of the building. Yeah, it was in great shape 486 00:33:45.920 --> 00:33:50.319 and it's got it. It's that that in and of itself is a great 487 00:33:50.359 --> 00:33:53.079 space. I mean they have a performance space in there, because when they 488 00:33:53.079 --> 00:33:55.400 would have bands or whoever come through, they would go like do a little 489 00:33:55.400 --> 00:34:00.880 small you know, could he could do a lot with that. There's all 490 00:34:00.920 --> 00:34:02.839 kinds of things you could do with that. That that could be inventive and 491 00:34:02.960 --> 00:34:07.759 different and, you know, let's just see what happens. I think it's 492 00:34:07.839 --> 00:34:14.119 exciting. Uh, if nothing else, it keeps, once again, it 493 00:34:14.239 --> 00:34:20.880 keeps the Dayton comedy scene in people's minds. It does, and that's a 494 00:34:20.920 --> 00:34:23.119 great thing. It is because, I mean, that's getting harder and harder 495 00:34:23.119 --> 00:34:29.039 to do. What just keep keeping the local comedy scene in people's minds. 496 00:34:29.360 --> 00:34:30.719 Like, like you said yourself earlier, when people were like, Oh, 497 00:34:30.800 --> 00:34:35.000 whiley's is still fucking open, it's like, yeah, it just kind of 498 00:34:35.079 --> 00:34:39.320 sucks that we're still having to remind people it's there. Now it's it's I 499 00:34:39.320 --> 00:34:44.159 think it's partly Um, there's been a shift, you know, and the 500 00:34:44.199 --> 00:34:47.800 way advertising is done, the way you market Um, and so some people, 501 00:34:47.920 --> 00:34:52.039 some demographics, are kind of left out of that. And at the 502 00:34:52.079 --> 00:34:55.440 same time, I've always believed for a lot of people comedy is generational. 503 00:34:57.199 --> 00:35:00.760 They go to clubs, comedy clubs, when they're in the twenties until about 504 00:35:00.800 --> 00:35:05.360 the end of their twenties and thirties, when they start having kids, they 505 00:35:05.360 --> 00:35:08.880 don't go to the club as much because what makes them laugh changes, you 506 00:35:08.920 --> 00:35:13.159 know, what makes them laugh after they have kids is watching a kid fall 507 00:35:13.199 --> 00:35:15.400 down some stairs. That's the which you know, you're a parent. Love 508 00:35:15.480 --> 00:35:20.679 that now, kids, but you didn't think that was fun. But I 509 00:35:20.679 --> 00:35:29.760 mean you change generation. But I always think that, you know, as 510 00:35:29.800 --> 00:35:35.159 the club change, there's the audience changes. It doesn't necessarily always. Comics 511 00:35:35.199 --> 00:35:40.119 don't always shift with the Times. Um, yeah, just there's no other 512 00:35:40.119 --> 00:35:45.239 way to put it. Sometimes you don't. Sometimes not all comedy age as 513 00:35:45.280 --> 00:35:49.719 well. That's very true. That's very true. Um, some people aren't 514 00:35:49.760 --> 00:35:57.719 aware as well, which I've never got. Okay, I would personally, 515 00:35:58.159 --> 00:36:00.639 I would be ashamed if I was telling jokes from twenty years ago. We 516 00:36:00.679 --> 00:36:07.360 had actually I found some of my old videos the day on facebook and I 517 00:36:07.440 --> 00:36:10.320 was like these can never see the light of day again. Shame, Holy 518 00:36:10.599 --> 00:36:15.360 Shit. Okay, twenty years. I'm gonna suck you a headliner. Ye, 519 00:36:15.119 --> 00:36:19.119 put that ship to bed. Greg Han does the same thing from. 520 00:36:20.079 --> 00:36:22.000 Okay, I mean it's funny, but it's like he's been doing the same 521 00:36:22.079 --> 00:36:25.239 fucking well, but he does them so fast. Yeah, well, no, 522 00:36:25.320 --> 00:36:29.920 I get that too. You know, you almost don't, but that 523 00:36:29.920 --> 00:36:35.599 they're not like like current event related.

What were you what you were saying about the time you 539 00:37:38.159 --> 00:37:43.239 performed right after night ven UH. You, you were describing like the crowd 540 00:37:43.280 --> 00:37:46.079 was like determined to be entertained and I thought it was a really cool, 541 00:37:46.159 --> 00:37:51.159 uh comparison to how I felt at the gym city shine, because there's there's 542 00:37:51.199 --> 00:37:53.760 some there's some assholes from Centerville just like drinking Seltzer's and stuff like that and 543 00:37:53.800 --> 00:37:57.519 partying, but a lot of the people were from the city. They knew 544 00:37:57.519 --> 00:38:01.360 people that had new people that got shot and we we were determined. We 545 00:38:01.400 --> 00:38:06.079 needed that. Yeah, because, and that was the thing. I think 546 00:38:06.119 --> 00:38:08.239 that was one of the important reasons why I had to be there, why 547 00:38:08.280 --> 00:38:12.719 you had to be there, white people had to be there, was we 548 00:38:12.800 --> 00:38:17.280 had to collectively put it behind us, he and and just say, okay, 549 00:38:17.559 --> 00:38:24.320 yeah, this happened, but yeah, you know it, and that 550 00:38:24.320 --> 00:38:29.639 that that could have only been possible, I think a gym shitty shine. 551 00:38:29.800 --> 00:38:32.119 I don't know that it would have been, because where I was, where 552 00:38:32.119 --> 00:38:35.599 I was camping at, was it this big, this big outdoor event, 553 00:38:35.719 --> 00:38:37.760 and a lot of it was in Pennsylvania, but a lot of people there, 554 00:38:38.800 --> 00:38:44.000 we're from like Dayton, Cincinnati, and knew had family there or from 555 00:38:44.039 --> 00:38:46.360 there. So the whole time I was there, Hey, there were people 556 00:38:46.400 --> 00:38:50.800 packing up and leaving like the next day to go home because they had heard 557 00:38:50.840 --> 00:38:52.480 about it or they just didn't know. They're like, I don't want to 558 00:38:52.480 --> 00:38:54.639 be here, I wanna be back at home, and then we all also 559 00:38:54.679 --> 00:38:59.039 at the whole time they're there. Instead of the usual like activities and stuff, 560 00:38:59.079 --> 00:39:00.639 they were canceling those be like if anybody wants to come use this tent 561 00:39:00.719 --> 00:39:05.360 from this time to this time who's from the area that just needs ye have 562 00:39:05.440 --> 00:39:08.280 a group sash. They were doing that. I mean it was I don't 563 00:39:08.280 --> 00:39:15.400 say it's one of my favorite videos ever from that. Somebody recorded it, 564 00:39:15.440 --> 00:39:19.440 but as like I reshared it. But yeah, you you said something about 565 00:39:19.519 --> 00:39:22.880 chance and a chance. It's like one of my really Davord artists, especially 566 00:39:22.920 --> 00:39:24.400 at the time. His Song has meant a lot to me. So he 567 00:39:24.480 --> 00:39:29.440 performed like a song that he had just put an album out or something that. 568 00:39:29.559 --> 00:39:36.400 Yeah, yeah, he had just dropped his new album like days before 569 00:39:35.840 --> 00:39:40.880 that. Amazing, absolutely amazing. Wow, okay, the big day. 570 00:39:42.159 --> 00:39:44.000 But he did a couple of those songs, but he did, uh, 571 00:39:44.079 --> 00:39:46.679 he did a lot of songs from the coloring book that really touched touched him 572 00:39:46.679 --> 00:39:51.280 about my childhood. It was on Wayne Avenue where I'd run around my whole 573 00:39:51.320 --> 00:39:54.320 life, and to have that moment like Dave provided for every moment. That 574 00:39:54.400 --> 00:39:59.159 was and that that's what I mean. I mean I'm standing there, I'm 575 00:39:59.239 --> 00:40:05.360 looking, I I am spitting distance from stevie wonder right as he does loves 576 00:40:05.360 --> 00:40:07.920 indeed. I'm like it's one of my favorite songs in the whole fucking world, 577 00:40:08.280 --> 00:40:13.519 and I'm I'm watching him do it and I'm going Ye, did he 578 00:40:13.519 --> 00:40:16.480 play superstition? No, okay, he did. Happy Birthday, though. 579 00:40:16.599 --> 00:40:21.960 That was I love.

Account kind of like 615 00:43:58.599 --> 00:44:02.159 normal, not normal, but like being in the audience. Just kind of 616 00:44:02.199 --> 00:44:06.800 like the fog cleared alot. Yeah, yeah, like, we'll get past 617 00:44:06.840 --> 00:44:09.440 this. After the Tiana Taylor, she she did a memorial for all the 618 00:44:09.480 --> 00:44:14.280 victims and showed their pictures and everything, and after that was like when we 619 00:44:14.800 --> 00:44:19.519 remembered why we were all here. Yeah, it just it. It was 620 00:44:19.559 --> 00:44:22.920 helpful. Hell, yeah, it was necessary. Oh, I sent that 621 00:44:23.000 --> 00:44:28.519 to fucking I didn't mean to send that the vander, you know, and 622 00:44:28.559 --> 00:44:31.159 we're lucky, lucky in that, you know, like y'all said, we're 623 00:44:31.199 --> 00:44:37.079 real lucky we've got an artist of that caliber who could do that for the 624 00:44:37.119 --> 00:44:40.519 community. So, and I guess that's we should look at the purchase of 625 00:44:40.559 --> 00:44:45.960 the building in the same context. Is, you know, this is a 626 00:44:45.960 --> 00:44:50.000 good thing, this will be a good thing and just you know, stay 627 00:44:50.039 --> 00:44:53.400 positive on the tip. Like I said, I I haven't watched like the 628 00:44:53.480 --> 00:44:59.880 netflix specials. I don't watch specials in general. So I think part of 629 00:45:00.000 --> 00:45:04.360 where people are having the mixed feelings is because of like the controversy that he's 630 00:45:04.400 --> 00:45:08.679 had and I don't get it. I don't know what the bits are, 631 00:45:08.760 --> 00:45:12.800 so I can't speak. You know, it's not even about the bits. 632 00:45:13.719 --> 00:45:20.239 All right, if you don't like a motherfucker's joke, the motherfucker is sorry. 633 00:45:21.280 --> 00:45:23.519 I say that for every comic who has ever lived, going all the 634 00:45:23.559 --> 00:45:28.559 way back to Adam's brother in law, okay, who probably had a joke 635 00:45:28.599 --> 00:45:30.960 about eve. You know, that home fun, that snake. Okay, 636 00:45:31.079 --> 00:45:37.360 but my point is comics are always gonna say things. It's gonna upset somebody. 637 00:45:37.800 --> 00:45:40.679 All Right, my question is, when are you gonna get past it? 638 00:45:43.199 --> 00:45:46.440 He told a joke you didn't like. Okay, what are you expect? 639 00:45:46.480 --> 00:45:52.239 What are what are your expectations in this moment that he is supposed to 640 00:45:52.360 --> 00:46:00.480 what be part of some great educational moment. As to why you are particularly 641 00:46:00.599 --> 00:46:07.239 offended, not that he attacked you. You're just offended. You just didn't 642 00:46:07.239 --> 00:46:12.880 like what he had to say because to you, his statement is tantamount to 643 00:46:12.960 --> 00:46:21.159 will slapping Chris. It gives permission to hate. Okay, I can't make 644 00:46:21.199 --> 00:46:25.800 that leap. I can't make that jump. Okay, they's not advocating any 645 00:46:25.800 --> 00:46:30.920 sort of Anti Trans Violence, is he? Don't think so. I mean 646 00:46:31.239 --> 00:46:37.679 again, if you qualify the jokes as jokes and you don't like them, 647 00:46:37.840 --> 00:46:43.880 then don't like them. To me, it doesn't get any deeper than that, 648 00:46:44.239 --> 00:46:52.559 unless there's something else in this agenda. M Hmm. What is that, 649 00:46:53.440 --> 00:46:59.599 or what could that possibly be? Could it be the ultimate goal of 650 00:46:59.599 --> 00:47:05.800 both ultimate liberal and the ultimate conservative, which is to shut the comic up, 651 00:47:06.199 --> 00:47:10.719 to make the comics so fearful of speaking their truth that they begin to 652 00:47:10.760 --> 00:47:21.000 self censor for fear of pissing somebody off? Then that means some critical truth 653 00:47:21.360 --> 00:47:27.559 doesn't get told because we're all scared. Yeah, I love that. David 654 00:47:27.599 --> 00:47:30.119 Wayne's also said something similar to that, where he was like he he did 655 00:47:30.159 --> 00:47:35.239 it for us. He went out there and he did that for all comedians. 656 00:47:36.480 --> 00:47:40.079 Yes, this is not you can't determine what gets out. Well, 657 00:47:40.119 --> 00:47:45.880 not only that, it's just like some people like fine, like if you 658 00:47:45.880 --> 00:47:50.559 can't make fun of if you if you're upset about trans jokes, okay, 659 00:47:50.599 --> 00:47:52.920 but then at what word do you draw the line? And since that you 660 00:47:52.960 --> 00:47:58.920 can't make fun of white people, then you know what I mean. And 661 00:47:58.960 --> 00:48:00.840 the thing is it's like maybe you don't give a ship if you make fun 662 00:48:00.840 --> 00:48:07.159 of white people. No, but like white people. Yeah, but like 663 00:48:07.199 --> 00:48:10.559 where? where? Like you, I think the whole point of honestly, 664 00:48:10.599 --> 00:48:15.519 the stand up is like, especially if that was like, yeah, I'm 665 00:48:15.519 --> 00:48:19.760 making these jokes, especially in the second one, he's like I'm making these 666 00:48:19.840 --> 00:48:23.199 jokes. Don't make other because I think he said don't come after me then, 667 00:48:23.280 --> 00:48:27.079 or don't write other jokes like that, in the sense it's like, 668 00:48:27.119 --> 00:48:29.519 yeah, I'm making these jokes, and that means you can't make these like 669 00:48:30.880 --> 00:48:37.239 jokes, as you're saying. Yeah, like it. It's like that's what 670 00:48:37.440 --> 00:48:39.800 people say CISTS, like why would you say system? And you know what 671 00:48:39.880 --> 00:48:45.320 I mean. It's just like it's just like okay, like I can't make 672 00:48:45.320 --> 00:48:46.800 these jokes, and why can you make those jokes? Like, what's the 673 00:48:46.840 --> 00:48:51.039 difference? It's I think. I think what you're saying is like basically, 674 00:48:51.039 --> 00:48:55.280 either everyone's off limits or no, and that's why it comes back to censorship. 675 00:48:55.760 --> 00:49:00.559 That is why I say the inmates want to run the aside. Yeah, 676 00:49:00.719 --> 00:49:05.679 and they don't care whether it swings to the hard left or the hard 677 00:49:05.840 --> 00:49:09.039 right, because they know both directions will still get the job done. It 678 00:49:09.079 --> 00:49:15.000 will silence the truth tellers. It's like remember in Shane Gillis, the whole 679 00:49:15.000 --> 00:49:19.960 Shane Gillis thing from mess and now looking ridiculous, he got like any didn't 680 00:49:19.960 --> 00:49:22.079 say anything racist. He just did voices. Was it voices or something like 681 00:49:22.119 --> 00:49:30.800 that? He actually did. He dropped the Oh, the drop. Yeah, 682 00:49:30.840 --> 00:49:34.639 we don't want we don't want the same thing. Now I'm not like 683 00:49:35.039 --> 00:49:38.440 it's sitting there is like, but the whole point was like okay, and 684 00:49:38.519 --> 00:49:40.920 he did, I think he did some voices too. Yeah, Oh, 685 00:49:42.000 --> 00:49:44.960 yeah, he did. But the nail on the coffin was that. was 686 00:49:45.360 --> 00:49:47.400 that all of it. But it's kind of like okay, then, fine, 687 00:49:47.480 --> 00:49:51.440 like I got an art something. It's like fine, I have no 688 00:49:51.480 --> 00:49:53.079 problem, like I had to say. I don't know, like at the 689 00:49:53.159 --> 00:49:57.000 very beginning of this argument I was like I don't give a shoot. Anybody 690 00:49:57.000 --> 00:50:00.519 makes fun of but like at some point the pendulum will swing the other way 691 00:50:00.079 --> 00:50:04.199 and you have to wait for it to swing the other way. That's not 692 00:50:04.239 --> 00:50:06.880 gonna I was like it will, because if you say, like I can't 693 00:50:06.880 --> 00:50:09.039 make fun of this, then sure you sure as hell can't do white voice, 694 00:50:09.360 --> 00:50:15.159 like you know, like because it's the same thing. But like at 695 00:50:15.159 --> 00:50:16.480 what point it's like you can't, like I said, you can't go after 696 00:50:16.519 --> 00:50:19.880 one and can't go after together, and I don't give a funk. Like 697 00:50:19.960 --> 00:50:22.519 you heard my jokes. I don't get what the fucking it it makes fun 698 00:50:22.559 --> 00:50:27.960 of, but it's just kind of like I'll equated back to back to everyone's 699 00:50:28.000 --> 00:50:31.159 favorite story, fried chicken boy from the barrel house. Oh look, if 700 00:50:31.159 --> 00:50:37.519 you're gonna say this ship, it better be really because because the minute he 701 00:50:37.599 --> 00:50:40.920 said the word Air Jordan's, I set my phone down and was just like 702 00:50:42.159 --> 00:50:45.320 the next thing out of this motherfucker's mouth better be the funniest ship I've ever 703 00:50:45.360 --> 00:50:49.800 heard in my life. And he drops the fried chicken comment and I don't 704 00:50:49.840 --> 00:50:54.000 think I've ever seen someone get get bitched off a stage that fast? In 705 00:50:54.119 --> 00:50:59.360 my turns around, you're gone and just goes right back to what he's doing 706 00:50:59.360 --> 00:51:04.800 and the guy just they're just off. Well, I mean, you know, 707 00:51:06.360 --> 00:51:12.079 aside from the the obvious issues with, you know, dietary concerns, 708 00:51:13.880 --> 00:51:15.679 I mean just I think, if you're gonna, if you're gonna go there, 709 00:51:16.119 --> 00:51:20.679 okay, and when I say go there, I mean if number one, 710 00:51:20.840 --> 00:51:25.639 if you're gonna go stereotype on any grid, okay, the next thing 711 00:51:25.679 --> 00:51:32.280 at your mouth better be the most original, funny shit ever said. Okay, 712 00:51:32.480 --> 00:51:38.239 mainly because, okay, you're perpetuating a stereotype. That means you are 713 00:51:38.320 --> 00:51:45.440 about to endorse what some of the racist sexists in your audience already think or 714 00:51:45.440 --> 00:51:51.599 you're about to piss them off. which is IT gonna BE? So it's 715 00:51:52.639 --> 00:51:58.920 it. I've always gone there if, if I decide it needs to happen, 716 00:51:59.599 --> 00:52:04.320 Um and sometimes you pay the price and sometimes, even when the audience 717 00:52:05.239 --> 00:52:08.440 roars, you'll still see faces, you know, where people just bent all 718 00:52:08.599 --> 00:52:15.000 out of fucking shape. You know, because you've people laughed at something they 719 00:52:15.039 --> 00:52:21.679 were deeply, deeply offended by. Y'All have all see me I use the 720 00:52:21.760 --> 00:52:25.119 n word, I use it consistently, vigorously, like a LOOFA. I 721 00:52:25.280 --> 00:52:29.559 never heard you say the n word. I've never heard you say no, 722 00:52:29.840 --> 00:52:35.119 and I think that about that. That's why I'm here on a Monday night, 723 00:52:37.039 --> 00:52:37.840 because we knew he wasn't get thing
