JUST KIND OF THINKINGABOUT EVERYTHING

THINKING ABOUT MY LIFE,YOU KNOW.

I'M REALLY GOINGTHROUGH THAT TIME PERIOD

WHEN I KNOW I SHOULD HAVE A KID.

MY BIOLOGICAL CLOCKIS TICKING AWAY

AND I'M FEELING A LITTLEDEPRESSED, A LITTLE SAD.

MAYBE I WON'T HAVE A KID.

IT WON'T BE THE ENDOF THE WORLD IF I DON'T.

GOD KNOWS THERE'S ENOUGH KIDSIN THE WORLD.

SO, I DON'T KNOW...

I WAS JUST IN THE MIDWESTAND THEY HAVE ALL THESE POSTERS

THESE REALLY WEIRD, INTENSE,REACTIONARY, RIGHT-WING POSTERS:

"THIS FETUS IS 24 SECONDS OLD

"AND SHE'S ALREADY PLANNINGHER COLLEGE EDUCATION.

ARE YOU WILLING TO KILL HER?"

BUT IT'S LIKE...

I UNDERSTAND, I MEAN

IT'S NOT, LIKE, A GREAT DECISIONTO HAVE AN ABORTION.

I HAD ONE WHEN I WAS VERY YOUNG.

I DIDN'T LOOK FORWARD TO IT.

WOMEN DON'T WANT TO PUTTHEMSELVES INTO A MORAL DILEMMA

LIKE STAYING UP AT NIGHT

THINKING, "SHOULD IOR SHOULDN'T I?

"LET ME GET PREGNANT

JUST SO I CAN SEE IF I WANTTO HAVE AN ABORTION OR NOT."

I MEAN, WHAT ARE PEOPLETHINKING, ESPECIALLY MEN?

IT'S LIKE, WELL,WHY DO THEY HAVE

ANY DECISION MAKINGIN THE PROCESS?

I DON'T GET THAT.

IT'S MAKE ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE.

( cheering and applause )

IT'S SO OUT THERE,IT'S SO BIZARRE.

WHY DON'T THESE PEOPLE

WHO ARE STANDINGOUTSIDE OF ABORTION CLINICS

SPEND MORE TIME HELPING THEHOMELESS-- SOME OF THE PEOPLE

THAT MAYBE SHOULDN'T HAVEBEEN BORN IN THE FIRST PLACE?

( cheering )

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

WASTING THEIR TIMEFREAKING EVERYBODY OUT.

IT'S INSANE.

SO I JUST WANTED TO COME OUTAND TELL YOU THAT

SINCE I WAS THINKING ABOUTHAVING A BABY BACKSTAGE.

WELL, YOU KNOW, I'M A PERFORMER,I'M ON THE ROAD A LOT.

IT'S NOT AN EASY DECISION FOR ME

SO IT'S SOMETHINGTHAT FREAKS ME OUT.

BUT I THINK ABOUTTHE WHOLE SCOPE.

IT'S NOT JUST ONE ASPECT OFREARING A CHILD, YOU KNOW.

I WAS SCARING SOME CHILDRENBACKSTAGE AS...

TALKING ABOUT THE WHOLE THING.

BUT IT'S A GOOD PLACE TO TALKABOUT IT HERE ON THE A LIST

AND JUST GET A LITTLE BIT REALONCE IN A WHILE

INSTEAD OF JUST KIND OF LIKE,LET'S JUST LAUGH AT ANYTHING.

IT'S GOOD TO FEEL SOME THINGS

EVEN IF IT'S NOTPARTICULARLY FUNNY.

THERE'S SOME HUMOR THERE,MAYBE MASKED, MAYBE HIDDEN

BUT WE'RE GOING TO FIND ITAND WE'RE GOING TO CULTIVATE IT.

LET ME ASK YOU GUYS A QUESTION.

ARE THERE ANY RELIGIOUS FANATICSIN THE CROWD TONIGHT?

ANY... NO? THAT'S A SURPRISE.

THEY USUALLY COME OUTTO COMEDY CLUBS

AND YUCK IT UPWITH DRINKS IN THEIR HANDS...

( laughter )

I WAS COMING OUT OFA GROCERY STORE ONE DAY

AND THIS GUY CAME UP TO MEAND GOT IN MY FACE.

HE WAS SCREAMING AND YELLINGAND FOGGING UP MY GLASSES

AND HE SAYS TO ME,"ARE YOU GOING TO HELL?"

I SAID, "NO, BUT IT'SON MY WAY IF YOU NEED A LIFT."

( laughter )

"HOP IN, MY NEW FRIEND.

RIDE SHOTGUN, WATCH FOR COPS."

HAS THIS EVER HAPPENEDTO ANYBODY HERE?

YOU'RE DRIVING YOUR CAR,SMOKING A CIGARETTE

AND YOU FLICK IT OUT THE WINDOWAND YOU DRIVE FOR A FEW MILES

AND THEN YOU SMELL SMOKE?

SO YOU TURN AROUNDAND LOOK IN THE BACK SEAT

AND THE DOG IS ON FIRE?

( laughter )

WHERE ARE MY PEOPLE?

SHOW OF HANDS.

WHERE'S MY POSSEIN THE HOUSE WOOF?

( one man woofs )

I GOT PULLED OVER ONCEFOR DRIVING IN THE DIAMOND LANE.

COP SAID, "YOU KNOWYOU HAVE TO HAVE

MORE THAN ONE PERSON IN THE CARTO DRIVE IN THE CAR POOL LANE."

I SAID, "CHECK THE TRUNK."

( laughter )

( imitates Jordan Brady's jazz riff )

( light applause )

( audience whooping )

WHAT SCHOOL DO YOU GO TO,YOUNG LADY?

SANTA MONICA.

SANTA MONICA?

OOH, A FINE INSTITUTIONOF HIGHER LEARNING.

( laughter )

THAT'S A 12-YEAR COLLEGE,ISN'T IT?

( laughter )

HEY, THAT'S NOT VERY NICE.

I'D SAY, "WHAT'S YOUR MAJOR?"BUT YOU'RE NOT TO THAT POINT.

IT'S A COMMUNITY COLLEGE.

ARE YOU PLAYINGTHE DRINKING GAMES YET?

THEY'RE OVER.

THEY'RE OVER!

SOME PEOPLE GET RID OF ITIN JUNIOR HIGH, HIGH SCHOOL.

I REALIZED I HADA DRINKING PROBLEM RECENTLY

WHEN I FOUND MYSELF SITTING INA DENNY'S AT 5:00 IN THE MORNING

DOING MAPLE SHOTS.

IT'S AS GROSS AS IT SOUNDS.

YOU LICK A LITTLE SUGAROFF THE BACK OF YOUR HAND

THEN YOU THROW BACKSOME LOG CABIN

AND THEN YOU SUCKON A PAT OF BUTTER.

THAT IS WHEN YOU HAVEA SERIOUS PROBLEM!

A SCREENPLAYI'M REALLY HAPPY ABOUT.

IT'S IN DEVELOPMENT AT A MAJORSTUDIO YOU MAY HAVE HEARD OF:

SCHMITTY'S... MOVIE... STUDIOIN SANTA MONICA

AND IT'S KIND OFA COP-BUDDY PICTURE.

THERE'S TWO COPS.

ONE HAS NARCOLEPSY, THE OTHERONE HAS TOURETTE'S SYNDROME.

IT'S CALLED "SNOOZY AND SPATS"

AND WITH ANY LUCK AT ALL,I THINK WE'RE GOING TO GET

GIBSON AND GLOVERTO PLAY THE LEAD ROLES--

HENRY GIBSON AND CRISPIN GLOVER.

HERE'S, LIKE, A SAMPLE OFTHE DIALOGUE YOU'LL HEAR

IF THIS MOVIE EVER GETS MADE.

"HEY, SNOOZY, WAKE UP!

( yells ):SON OF A BITCH!"

I GUESS YOU HAVE TO BE FAMILIARWITH DISEASES TO REALLY...

REALLY GET INTO IT, BUT...

YOU GUYS TRIED.

GOT TO PERFORMIN ENGLAND RECENTLY.

I WENT TO BUCKINGHAM PALACE

BECAUSE YOU CANMESS WITH THE GUARDS.

THEY'RE NOT ALLOWED TO MOVEOR TALK OR DO ANYTHING.

YOU CAN GET IN THEIR FACEAND MESS WITH THEM.

♪ OOH, THE QUEEN HASA HAIRY BACK! ♪

THIS ENGLISH WOMANWAS STANDING THERE

AND SHE SAYS, "YOU CAN TWEAKHIS NOSE IF YOU'D LIKE.

YEAH, GO AHEAD, YANK HIS WILLY,PINCH HIS BUM, GO FOR IT."

AND I'M THINKING,"UHHH... OKAY!"

IN RETROSPECT, I REALIZEDSHE WAS PROBABLY WITH

BRITAIN'S "FUNNIEST HIDDENVIDEO CAMERA SQUIRREL HUNT HOUR"

BUT I WANTED TO BE A GOOD SPORT

SO I SORT OF REACHED OUTAND GAVE HIM A LITTLE...

AND I GOT TO TELL YOU GUYS

NOTHING CLEARS UPJET LAG QUICKER

THAN THE CRACK OF A GUN BUTTAGAINST YOUR SKULL.

BRINGS YOU RIGHT AROUND.

HERE'S ANOTHER TRAVEL TIP...

( laughter )

IF YOU EVER GO TO LAS VEGAS,AND YOU WILL

JUST GO FOR A FEW DAYS.

I WAS THERE RECENTLY FOR SEVENDAYS-- SEVEN DAYS IN VEGAS.

AFTER I BLEW ALL OF MY MONEYON GAMBLING AND PROSTITUTION...

( laughter )

I HAD SIX DAYS TO KILL.

( laughter )

SO WHAT I DID WAS...

LET'S PUT THIS HEREAT THE TOP OF THE A...

IF YOU HAVE A DOLLAR, YOU CANTAKE THE TOUR AT THE HOOVER DAM

WHICH IS, LIKE, THE MOSTBORING EXPERIENCE IMAGINABLE

AND YET IT ONLY COSTS A DOLLAR,SO I WAS ALL OVER IT.

THE TOUR GUIDE WASA CLOSET COMEDIAN.

YOU COULD TELL THAT HE WANTEDTO GET INTO SHOW BUSINESS

BUT HE WAS STARTING OUTAT THE HOOVER DAM LEVEL

WHICH IS A NOTCH BELOW
