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.

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.

25 – Jimmy saw Pippen. Loved it.

I’m not a good gay.

Jimmy might have seen our neighbor at a restaurant last night. MC Lyte. Pat’s favorite beer. Eliot prefers regular MC. He gets shit for it but still gets some credit for it being a good piece of business.

Diggin’ up bones. They found him drunk and naked on the street, possibly more than once. Eliot guesses Tennessee Jones or something.

Pat talks about how little Jimmy respects Pat’s musical opinion. After he gave Boston’s latest album ZERO drumsticks, Jimmy still went out and bought it. Jimmy says that zero is being kind. Worst release of the decade. Everything about it sucks.
