They'll throw batteries at me.

She was like, yeah, it'snot that good Larry.

- [Voiceover] Oh is that a restaurant?

- That was a restaurant.

Okay, so what happened in Houston?

- I was doing a stand up show there.

It was right after theyhad that weird period

where they had banned smoking in restaurants and bars.

But they still had like a half-ass

smoking section in the same room.


- [Larry] What is this, the 90s?

- Yeah. Yeah it was, itwas the early 2000's,

and there was a guy who was sitting in the front row

who would go to the back of the room,

just like three rows back

to smoke cigarettes andthen come back for it.

Like you couldn't get through an hour,

he smoked like five cigarettes.

- [Larry] Wow.

- And I called attention to it

and then the entirecrowd turned against me.

- [Larry] Wow.

Houston, that's so sad.

You know, I have to giveyou some tea anyway.

You know why?

Cause I tricked you, I made you slam a city.


No, I'm just kidding, don't be sad.

Here you go.

(laughing and applause)

- Paul F. Tompkins everybody.

- Take that Houston.
