Rolf Potts met me in Tompkins Square Park to talk to me about travel. Rolf wrote one of my favorite books of all time called Vagabonding. It’s all about long term travel. It influenced the hell out of me. And I was so stoked to be able to talk about getting out there in the world with such a well worn traveler like him.

Bill Burr and I sat out on the patio of the Comedy Store one day and talked about Boston Sports. Bill grew up a homer in the homerist city in America. Sports, comedy, and conspiracy theories are all I want to talk to him about. It was a fun discussion and a good hour before we even got to the sports talk.

You can tell this crowd had already been there for hours before he goes up. I saw him work out most of this material around LA. It’s nice to see it in finished form still work on TV.

 

Check it.

 

The Music

I used to think Carl Yastrzemski got caught in some sexual thing that kept him out of the Hall of Fame but now I think that was Steve Garvey. Little known fact.

 

It really sounds like he’s saying Bill Burr sometimes. I gotta get into black music. I have no idea who Gucci Mane is.

 

Cool song. And they play it at a ton of Boston games. Man, tv used to be so damn weird. Play it till the end and look at the difference between now and then.

 

I have vague vague memories of having watched this when I was little.
