After an eight-year hiatus, Brody performs stand-up on television again.
Is this a prank?It's not. I'm doing it.
Oh, then it's official,it's not a prank.
I call-- I asked,it's not a prank!
I got Conan.
It's my friend joking around.
Ask him when and where.
Um, when and where?That's all I need to know.
Okay, I'll talk to the booker.Thanks.
How did you get Conan?That's great.
I've just been working on mystand-up. I wanted to get back.
I have a relationship witha lot of the guys over there.
I felt as though that'dbe a good start to getback into comedy.
Why not come back with--
What's your first joke?
That's pretty good.
Uh, I'm gonna do some classics,like "I've done a lotof modeling in Serbia."
Serbia.I drive a 1996 Toyota Avalon.
Leather exterior.I don't live with my mother.
I live with my sister...My sister...
in a condominium ownedby my mother.owned by my mother.
So you know these jokes.
Well, it's pretty easyto memorize.
You've been doing it since 1994.
You remember any of my bits?
I probably would if you told me.I can't tell you off-hand.
I'll probably talk about howI went for a swim outin Venice Beach...
and I clogged the drain.
I talked about how I booked...
I did book another movie, Mom.
You did?Yeah, it's an adult video.
You're supposed to laugh.All right, that's off the list.
I didn't-- I didn't laughat that.
Maybe you should get up on stageand start performing these jokesfor an audience.
Well, I've been getting up, I'vebeen going to the youth hostel.
I've been going to theComedy Store.
I've been going to Vancouver.
I've been going all over,trying to get my stuff down.
Do they laugh at all thesejokes?No.
Help me out, please.
I mean, last night, I'm gettinglaughs, tonight you're playinghardball with me.
I-- I get frustrated, then theylaugh at my frustration.
Stay with me and give me achuckle based on cadence alone.
It takes time just to get usedto my beats and my patterns.
It would have been better if yousaw what I was trying to do...
but you're bullying me, likethey did at Reseda High School.
I fought a Crip in 1987.
I pulled her hair.
You're doing good... onfrustration.
Yeah, I'm the frustrationcomedian.
I like that.You like that?
That's funny.Will Conan like it?
I don't know.
You think I'm gonnado okay on this show?
It seems like I might notbe doing all right.
No, you'll be doing all rightif you get some jokes.
Okay, this is partof the process.
Having your mom tell youthat you're not funny.
And you need jokes, and you'regonna bomb on the Conan Show.
I didn't--Thank you.
I didn't say all that,but that is funny.
[BLEEP], comedy's hard.
Just get some more jokes.
I get lonely, sometimes I godown to the batting cage.
Yeah.Just to play catch.
Yeah, that's funny, too.Okay, good.
Two out of seven, not bad.Yeah, yeah.
