Yeah the duke you know it's good to see it's and it's funny because you know it's the holiday season. This you from here so like it's always fun to see the dues like you were all the ruefully it's billion busier guy the one side or Olympic darling come home in a and that used to be an excuse to visit my parents but now they don't even live here so. Mark a big day morning Bob. And you don't sit well hello CC does exist out of your phone if you have to try to wanna hear that no one teacher in case chances are though. That's your conceive a bad voice somewhere in the in the vicinity okay yeah I know is a great feeling pain of it that's. That's great thank you yeah I do not know we're gonna get eroded what his dad sounds like in the moment I let a sexy bothers him I'm I'm thinking that we would somewhere like this at that mark a big day. Element headache I think it's we are just like wanted to ask the ISL well it's been great show. Just this weekend last comedy club yesterday Arabic riot Saturday that if Seattle is 10 o'clock show we fund you want to outlast comedy club dot com. Of course yet was it has to run up of course I love the story because you Bob rivers was different migrate radio guy here in town. You don't have to lie. He's the guy now are made as all right but he he said that he would he was leaving the business of we could spend more on his grandchildren and any moved across the country detonating it. I. I'd say there and I I wanna be near my children like I'm gonna go out there and can get the hell out of dad's. Well it's funny because you can't escape they work for you and I mean you got another room for them still listening punched you if you punch me in the other room yeah what I don't know what I want it's just decided to guess when you call HR. And that settlement on a mix of cash. What was the reason for did you say I don't even know the reason was I was had a nice conversation with Andrew and other next thing you know I I don't know him I Biden I think she meant to not hit him but then her instincts took over there. There's. Yes she decided you know what I'm with what's going on this country Unita at least somebody needs to be slapped I'm gonna do it again. As that you went and to Europe recently and comedy which sounds crazy yes. And that the whole back story is even more desperate for me I'm thinking how does a European crowd react when American comic blitz. Funny is like I was worried they wouldn't even understand. The language because like here in Berlin and like everyone's ordering in German and I'd like Ohio like that's their first language you know. So bright and comedy is not like. Whereas the bathroom you know there's like complex sarcasm more like. You know so but it was great they were they were wonderful and it was so fun tour around exploring. And it really made it easy. Remember like what an idiot I was growing up because I took two years of German in high school and I didn't. I couldn't remember one word. Which is like and I passed the classes late nights but I say inexpensive thirteen years. And I couldn't remember a single word now met a lot of effort. To not even accidentally remember anything from why isn't it mean even like you meet union you know you multiplication tables you can speak a little in the why is it when it comes the foreign language he teaches well. Make a spent that time and you're right none of this knowing it and I I was an honor student mechanic and nothing no other subject but Spanish yeah I dominated Spanish in high school collectively what people wanted to cheat on me keep off of me because I was so good at whatever. And you can't speak Spanish at all I don't doubt when he says only knows where's that for you go out there thought of Banja. Well that's the important thing to note you know I don't go to NASCAR and I haven't golf but what it would not go well at least he can ask where the batteries and talk about you know what you're gonna need. So so does. Some even think you gonna go do comedy in Europe via I would think loud like you said the cultural barriers the language barriers I mean even if he tried to calling England. I I just know that sometimes a watch Harry Potter Rangel I don't know what the hell yes but hostile like even the English league even in the UK and like Scotland couldn't understand they speak English. It's a different. I you know like I was like try I people that come to get their shows and I would just start nodding along. Like I had no idea what they're saying I just assumed there like very showed like it's awesome. It could've been like we hate you and I'm like that. That's fantastic cover big you know because I like part of retirements and try to decipher. What they're actually saying and the other half at a time. I'm laughing because it sounds so funny like it sounds like fat bastard you know ha ha ha ha sexy in a and I thought that was like a fake accent I thought they were like playing that up for the movies and on like this is you actually talk this crazy. I know you don't you don't really don't laugh at somebody Zacks again that's kind of what we've done our entire life in America. We just left everybody else's accident right and so why I just kind of tried to talk slower because like if I can't understand and they can't understand me. But they were totally negate your fine we're not worried about it like. If it did this make you feel dumb realizing wow they can understand me and this is not their first line right exactly that's what I wish like. Feel like my dad let me down I wish she would like. You know called me is this the year look like if you want it just called me opposing a couple to prince. I would have been in the NFL in and all of a sudden I had your back and yes you and I just needed motivation yeah the wrestling rightly. That your generation did not get treated as badly as our dinner right and and that so therefore you're not coming up I don't even think about that like I have a job where people pay me to make fun of my dad and there's no I have no fear is not an old Whitney with a belt it's fox like he can't do anything. That's it and I never heard of football player when they're like a place that you want us to Reuters MVP who do you it think it was god look into my mom because she didn't win the belt that everything thinks the death row meal was seem a million times that's really underrated part of -- FL experience and it really should because somebody you know somebody who's really really good at something. Yes something's really hard to do you know somebody treat him like crap somewhere and I'm sure you know in the entertainment business day at the the really good ones have issues right. We'll thank you I hope that's about me yeah well heck. I've seen Iraq I hope you have a lot yeah yeah a lot of Asian memorable inherent at a time that I mean that's the whole idea like this find someone else to. Our that's what I think that's that that's the American why why take personal responsibility when it can be someone else. Yeah. See you got C Armond on your system that motivational Wednesdays we dangerous. And by the way into rivers if you haven't seen hander actually honestly. I don't know how Bob produced this kid must be just be his momma gave most of them all the good stuff came at Santa -- at least that's not what your mom anatomy yeah she will Whitney what about you hit.
