in front of these cameras,and do well.

In Boston, I'm not in LA.I can't do LA references.

What can I say thatis allowed in Boston?

I can't do 818 'til I die.

That's a local reference.

I can't do San Fernando Valley.

I was down on Olympicand Laurel Canyon.

Yo, that's a bigopportunity for me.

13 years of preparation,for 21 minutes of material...

Yes!Yes! Push!

You got it! Say goodbye to theValley, and hello,Massachusetts.

I'm proud of you, Brody.Very, very proud of you.

I'm proud of me.

Come on, do your Boston accent.

Pahk ya cah in the garage.

That just soundslike somebody who's deaf.

Pahk ya cah in the Boston yard.Scotland Yard.

Scotland Yard is in London.

The Sox.

Going to Boston! Yes!

I need to stay away from a crowdwhere they say, "Brody, youcan't do crowd work.

"You can't talk to the crowd.You're doing a special."

You know what? I had aconference call yesterdaywhile driving home.

Hey, it's Josh calling from theworld-famous Comedy Store.You got it!

11:15PM at the Comedy Store,I get to go up there.

If I can do an hour on Saturdaynight, at the Comedy Store...

I think that will help meprepare for Boston.

Put your hands togetherand give a nice welcome...

to the fabulous Brody Stevens,ladies and gentlemen.

Thank you.

I'm shooting my half hourspecial for Comedy Centralin Boston.

I want you guys all to be there.

If you hear a laugh over there,join in over here.

Where'd you grow up?

Grew up in San Francisco.

There's a good chancethose guys will walk out.

Wait.Son of a bastard.

You don't walk out on me whenI'm not looking! That's a cheapshot!

I'm preparing for Boston.

I was-- it was nothing amazing.

Oh, now you're mocking me.

I kind of just wantedto sell my personality...

but I didn't give themtons of jokes.

But I felt tonight, I nevertotally got the audience.

I'm looking for the originalStarbucks right now.

You know, becauseI caused problems.


At Starbucks.

You're gonna arrest me?No, no.

I want you to--

This is the original Starbucks.

I come back here to reconcile.

I made mistakes.I was aggressive.

I treated you like you shouldn'thave been treated.

I was out of control.

You startled baristas,you upset customers.

And I come back to Seattle,knowing that this is theoriginal location.

You're an original.I'm original.

I clean up after myselfin your restrooms.

I don't abuse your refillsystem.

I don't use the same cupall week.

I made a mistake.Please forgive me.

This is where the characterBrody Stevens was born.

That's where it all happened.

That's where the Steven BrodyStevens character was refined,it was developed.

The windows are open, I'm gonnaclimb up. Son of a bitch.

Okay, I can't make it.

And that's my bathroom rightthere.

That's where I would go numberone, number two, masturbate.

And I would think that, well,can you see my silhouette whileI'm sitting on the toilet?

Fondling myself?I'll never know.

I was here as Steven Brody.I left as Brody Stevens.

And I have becomeSteven Brody Stevens.

Sometimes it takes timefor friends to find out whattheir friendship is about...

then trying to make thefriendship happen.

Well, you left a message sayingyou were gonna be up here.

I gave you a call, we're here,walking around on one of themost beautiful days of the year.

How do I feel about Boston?Yeah.

I'm nervous. I was happy to goback to Phoenix and like becomefriends again, at least.

Let's make surethat this is gonna rock.

Like I was doing up herewith the cable access show.

I lost that.There was something missing.

I think if we put on anothershow, that people wouldcome to it.

Let's do the public access show,it's Brody and Teina...

Jews and Samoansrule the world. Yes!

We've sort of discoveredwhat we are to each other.


Trust and believe.Trust and believe.

I feel the Jewish power.

I got on a couple times.He got on the phone linea couple times.

You know what Alex told me?What did he tell you?

They would record audioversions.

Guys, this is backwhen reels had to--

This is like magnetic tape.
