So it makes it really big difference I mean if you start now know whatever. It just started how would you if true this is different -- -- -- I'll talk to Greg Greg help W 6066. Foot six foot 188 east -- -- is 29. I don't believe that or the nine point whatever he says. It's OK -- don't are not -- anything -- on the -- my own story didn't.

But he's and again it's genuine you know. Yes not like an act and I built -- -- say there's a that there's a crazy insane factor there right I'm and I just thought it was -- trip and I should remember we talked -- one comedic in this what's off limits. It was a woman it was a Lendl you're sure to Lenny when he was and -- out -- at least -- now no no but anyway it was -- what's off limits and she said flat out. Handicapped children nothing else. Open else though there was an interesting Nancy I think about it so handicapped adults okay kids who are -- I mean that's in her mind. Is the the bottom -- would tell you it's something -- else beyond him to Tracy Morgan wouldn't tell you what not and and he has an older brother that's -- palsy. And you know he. Went to get a tough joked that obviously tough life. It is you -- -- -- -- question his father was a drug -- came back from Vietnam addicted to heroin it's got a lot of stuff yeah like yeah.

If -- went to this tough time of his brother and India to protect them became kind of his you know when these deals were. In a comedy became the outlet and -- from the tough childhood that's fine but -- -- nothing is off limits but I think. I think what he took offense Stewart took offense to what he's trying to point out is his style is to not. Point out people make fun of them this stuff -- all about him. This is what I did this is how screwed up was this happen it's it's more about his life experience as opposed looking out of the audience and making fun of the fact dire the you know the general Paul aren't short there would have the case may -- make fun of people. Comedy this stuff is observational suppose about his alive -- DNC a pack your. -- -- Ordered to cripple our commitment that I had a daughter that.
