That's definitely the worst it looked worse than the size of the usually done it in teasing fashion where you start with the least -- leave the 25 you would -- the ugly so I guess in that case to be stamped itself. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- So you've -- not mean we saw you at the road course Greg I have career of the fifth that.

So boy you were very very funny at the roast as you always are and you know the thing about Murphy's and he's also a huge sports fans so he fits in blueberry nights in the program. -- any thoughts on the whole Aaron Hernandez situation I'm just Arafat to talk about what you don't know who else is out there what's going on who's left in the UK and you say the wrong things of -- -- knocking your door. For right at 2 o'clock in the morning just in case that happens by the way and all the comments -- make about it I have. Taken precautions I've already destroyed my area home surveillance cameras. And you cellphone to ruin dispatch system makes room you know. In -- everybody else if if a phone call it now you course. Famous in part anyway for you big show appearances with that as Robert Kraft the years and why -- not a fan of either east Indian mounds to craft. It's a -- you -- and it's up of the John and. And -- for the -- has ever sent anything to her though was he didn't sing it to me he just walked away. Actually he said a review of the wall of the -- mixed real mobile radio. And I suggest -- -- -- but this would be lovely Leslie -- and many walked back. Oh yen and the sun came up to me and says it's it's. It's. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Distributed. To know what nobody imitates you if you're nothing not okay if you. And mister Kraft does have a distinctive way of speaking to me you've captured that quite obviously over the years and the odd ball impersonation of people not everybody does. You know I mean I do yes I'm the only got it does yes in the world and nobody ever requests it it's not likely can't get enough. But on the other hand if there's ever need you know for their -- Red Sox retrospective cartoon festival. And wanna bring he -- the picture I know what got decade. That's my -- in the TO. I was doing to go before we don't know exactly is one guy does the people who do Tito -- -- you doing Tito and I haven't done in years what's left of and it uses you know people on the show as a -- -- of jokes got speed well a new book write a book that came out -- -- -- -- there anymore I'm not thinking like -- now because I don't have to I was doing -- camera during the Stanley Cup rushes back. Do you joining other guys that maybe some people wouldn't know because said they hear you do I used to Don Pardo law so I'm going for him to -- Surface resurface when I don't know what's gonna happen the game -- The senator -- silently not a lot of I argue it's all about them and reach. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Have you ever done anybody I tried it and some damage is king getting had a bypass. Yes who was the Grady Little took me awhile yet to do and -- -- of the right it's became more joke to make phone calls and Tony Grammy goes to those on stage right. But I mean have you audition yourself to do somebody and it just didn't work and you just put -- aside and saying I'm Sharon F yeah it's obvious that -- yeah. We're for some reason almighty invitations or like either no one knows who they are any more added the you know the old dude keep mr. mode -- who gives a crap off. Tremendous impression but it is like I've learned the last twelve guys like that just held onto it you know it's like that of course fresh stuff was the father put keepers of the and reward among all I could do was part of it that's it. As a collective. To -- accurately noted but he noted knew that what John Farrell he's too generic answer yes very -- speaking voice that you wouldn't recognize who are writing now you can do it dead dead on and -- it would recognize it right I can do Marcel Marceau and let's hear that -- -- That's you know that's just like exactly like my impersonation of the quiet man John Ruiz. Same thing democratic. Also on how apple marks a new apple -- that this -- -- are out this and you know in other authorities think harper were rigid in my view. Is some bumped him up to me is just as long coat hat merely -- some bump composers they borrow they can you spare a dime for a couple of coffee and he just reaches his code is an odd couple. Like it is pocketed so far no one of them mid duck feathers -- horse manure whatever religion. So Murphy where it is -- you played again tell me again I tell everybody to become a studio and Barbara square Harvard's. Where on a Saturday and then we got big fund raiser down on the cape openness that. And winds that Sunday night Sunday night the fourteenth fantastic show for Mark Davis -- times that's at the and in the lineup on that's completely Clark Tony -- Steve Sweeney don't have those guys off. There are also as you know -- the now when you were an aspiring young comedian yes. It's hard to get known real fast but did the big show -- your appearances on the radio station that advance that for you at all because we'd like to think -- important yet this is definitely. Because -- welcome back and I expect that gets in the door and then -- you know but then the you know. You wanna step away from that I don't to a voices stated Trent. I try to but that is more -- and then it's kind of two different things -- each is on his ticket comedy you know stand up comedy it's it's it's a different thing because you can see the faces of the people lower you know and and over is not like the radio you talked general Michael don't look at -- -- -- my -- could hide in the car into the -- -- Franken at the open you know you're out there you can see in the people's faces you know at some stuff works is some stuff doesn't but after awhile communicated a whole thing is fine all the stopped -- and laid it all out there and -- people want. I have a star Madonna rare last month -- he's funny as hell aren't very fun bush your -- Some of the of the younger guys Erica that are really making -- now October. Anger -- -- is awesome. While we Kelly's got from around here. And then I was -- Dana -- Phelps I've laughed right now it's he mixed it and unbelievably could do voice. Doing a little bit you know and put -- law. And -- schizophrenic do that that's true you gotta have a little bit of that eighties Robin Williams in order to flip flop back and forth of course when he stopped being funny guy stopped being funny. Andrew Dice Clay was. On a roll. Everything he said people were using it as their own you know intent. You know talking about why this -- quoting him you know he had some tremendous but did he what breaks a guy like him burn out. Our schools in Vegas with him not with him personally he was upstairs at the remote work at three era. And -- of people wacko. And -- just thought the so you went 200 escalate. But you don't know what he does like that he was it was insulting people that what you write what I mean not not -- -- he would think it's the same thing a lot of time and only as certain shelf life. Yes it's LA you know you take about the island getter done about. What's his name -- the cable guy. Larry the cable yeah right right right you know to be the one guy that shows maybe the difference between the master of the art of comedy and the guy who's not a -- but a guy who just can't keep up with that standard is George carlin's -- because George Carlin all the guys -- my favorite he -- and -- -- more grouchy old man issue as time went on. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Think of the average how stupid the average person is and and then realized that that. -- -- But it's 1030. -- is it as an edit. It's big outs of the average person is net realized that half the world is dumber than that I don't blow -- load. If you had ever spend a half hour in the Red Sox locker room okay and observe and listen to a Pedroia. I mean it would be great and you would only need three -- I don't know if he's a fan -- me it's. Really enemy and we had a thing on there they haven't architecture somewhere where I called -- Francona the net and -- him. Oh that's right thirty seconds everything couldn't get mad at this sort of slightly -- -- -- -- -- -- -- he -- -- it was great by the -- it was -- and the for a guy who plays for guys worried. Our number 61777. -- 7937. And now emerged gonna hang around with the me Lenny and writer for awhile and talk about whatever it is you want talk about we're talking about the funniest people have to live I guess we were gonna have bought some kind of text. Thing going on -- that because everybody has their own. Favorite comedians I mean the ones that have moved me to one actually go see them you know the famous ones -- -- at least see an old due late night talk show I didn't. I had to see Steve Martin when he first came down. He was just so different it's a weird man that. As -- I went to the Jorgensen auditorium UConn and he was called three bucks to see Steve Martin after -- exit -- -- after the HBO special. And is very top of his prime with a rabbit ears and hold a banjo thing. And it was well worth the very thought well worth. Three but I said. -- a couple times Rodney Dangerfield and it's different Montauk or go to comedy club in and out of it would like a concert horror or something like that. Where it's a little bit different by point nine ditzy dice clay in Hartford Civic Center. And he had 151000 people screaming this one obscenity was part of his -- notes that you know something about them bleep my bleep them. And it was an unbelievable thing to talk around to see 151000 people yelling that 133 word phrase. At least some kind of record it's just a club record of that for diesel is kind of it was kind of -- dish it -- we realized at that time because you were when you don't come up with some kind of new material you're gonna just be a fad it's dated by eighty whatever you talk -- and it's -- -- once -- Writers -- it's yeah yeah. Best of all time in my book Richard Pryor. I mean he was he was so funny. And he had mixed material he's talking about his life mated Fannie and he was MFN bombs left or driven no luck and warriors didn't matter with him. And then Eddie Murphy came in his steps okay yeah I try to do the same thing he was life while. And then it was just. Do you take MF out of his acting when that city speculators write an American dealers lose that yeah so yeah 181 yours right let's created that's that's an incredible -- it was it was terrific.
