episode was recorded in New York City.
I was in New
York last week to film the new Dave Attell series for Comedy
Central. At the moment it is called 'Adults Only'. It's an
uncensored stand up show that will air sometime next year. I was
there the entire week and got to watch every taping. I was on the
last episode and thoroughly loved rocking it and can't wait for
people to see it.
It had been
several years since I had been in New York and it was great to do
sets around town honing my set for the filming. It was also great
to see a few friends that I had not seen in many years. One of my
favorite things in the world is to get together with comedians I
love and admire and talk about comedy experiences and the nuts and
bolts of the business.
One of those
people is Jim Gaffigan. I believe the last time Jim and I worked
together was in London filming a TV show called 'The World Stands
Up'. It had been at least ten years since we had seen each other
but it was like we hadn't lost a minute between us when we got
last time I saw Jim he has become pretty massive in the comedy
world and I think he deserves every drop of his success. He's such
a pleasant funny human being and in general a big, bright, ball of
sunshine I enjoyed all the many directions this conversation went
There is a
slight echo in this episode because it was recorded in Jim's office
that has a very high vaulted ceiling but the brain candy and
knowledge nuggets that come out in this make it worth it. He's a
man that I wish I got to laugh it up with more often, he's the one
and only Mr. Jim Gaffigan.
