00 – Hello! Indeed welcome! 1510 is not this episode but it is a good one. They’re all Jimmy’s babies.

Stomach issues! Ohhhhh LAWDY!!!!

Stomach issues! Ohhhhh LAWDY!!!!

Jimmy’s having tummy issues. The elections are gonna set the black man back. Jimy not sure why his Louisiana plantation owner is upset about the black man.

Jimmy was in Louisville this weekend. Jimmy talks about the voice of the dumb. Jimmy talks about the guy who came up to him at the show. Said he lumbered over to him and was the size of the yeti with mutton-chops.

Jimmy acknowledges Matt’s gotta get to rick-rolling people. He prefers Matt’s hair up to down.

A guy who interviewed Jimmy last week from Paste, had a great head of hair.

Jimmy hates the brothers from another mother phrase but he thinks that Michael might be just that.

Michael Dunaway – @michaeldunaway

05 – A gaggle of dumb came to the shows down at the Laughing Derby. Talking, not heckling, just not shutting up.

Jimmy doesn’t understand the mentality of going to a show and assuming that they have to be good to you. Comedy is probably more subjective than most art forms so hope for funny don’t expect it. If you’re dropping money on tickets/food/etc, make sure you do a little research to make sure you are gonna enjoy the comic.

Go in positive!

10 – The venue is going through a change. Simple comedy outweighs the smart comedy, like Peoria was. Louisville is changing to the opposite like Peoria is now.

Cultivate an audience!

Don’t give away tickets.

Better clients, better comics, better reputation is you do it Jimmy’s suggested way.

Don’t move Eliot, let’s stay stationary.

Cash that fucking check Eliot!
Eliot may not know what a bit is. He took us into a cool-du-sac.

Matt and Jimmy wish they’d lived in a cul-de-sac.

15 – Eliot’s hair was getting shaggy so he cut it. Jimmy not a fan of it. I complimented him on it.

Jimmy’s got a ipad mail taking up memory but not deleting when he deletes it.

More GB chat while I’m out with our guest.

20 – Jimmy goes on about putting a hooker in the ocean related to the bowling ball and feather experiment going around facebook.

Eliot says he did that in junior high.

Jimmy balks.

Let NASA have something, Eliot.

The guys talk about the space plane crashing.

Put something up your ass and tickle around a bit.

Guys talk about fitting a bowling ball up the ass.

Jimmy describes the procedure to get that ball up there.

Eliot might go see Wicked despite hearing how awful it is.

Great fun at the muck run! Jimmy would do it every weekend if he could. Or maybe one a month.

15 – Lori Petty was in Tank Girl. Has had some substance issues in the past.

Eliot asks about shirt selection for the muck run. Jimmy was wearing a Triumph t-shirt. He says he tries to wear something he doesn’t think he’ll wear again. Matt wore his NNF season 13 shirt.

Matt’s wife does the laundry. Jimmy razzes him on it. Matt says that he does the cooking and Jimmy says that’s interesting because she should be doing that too.

Danielle does some cleaning but luckily she lives with Felix Unger so it’s kept pretty neat anyway.

Lots of heavy mud on this race.

20 – Pumpkin Patch trip with Oliver! Jimmy got ready for the 5k on Sunday at 5:30. He did it! The day after the muck run he did the 5k! He feels fine except for the knee issue that keeps popping up after half marathons. It’s the outside of the right knee.

After about 9 miles the knee flared up. Right around the spot that the course starts going up hill towards a bridge. 2 hours 20 minutes on this 5k.

Matt is on board with Eliot’s “in the shower?” question.
