Matt says the cactus leaves paid for themselves with the great story Eliot got out of it. 

1h5m – Al and Jimmy talk about the time they met in vegas. Jimmy and Mike insisted on seeing Al’s set. Al wanted them to stay out but Jimmy said he likes to laugh. It put Al in his hand a lot.

Eliot’s C is George Carlin. 

Talking comics who say “Im just kidding!” after their jokes. 

Jimmy sets Al up for a story. He tells about going drinking with someone until 3 am who then mentioned they have a radio gig at 6am. Al asked if the middle act could come too. It was some 17 year old kid. At the radio, Al just sat back and this kid killed it on the show. He brought people out to see the show thanks to his radio appearance! It was Jimmy Fallon!
