T.G.I. Yom Kippur is not a good restaurant idea. (1:22)

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR HIM.

I'M ACCEPTING AN APPLAUSEFOR ANOTHER PERSON.

I HAD, LIKE, AN OUT-OF-COMICEXPERIENCE--

A LITTLE FRIGHTENING.

I KNOW I'VE BEEN COMPLAININGEARLIER IN THE SHOW

BUT HEY, EVEN DRIVING TODAY,L.A.P.D. PULLED ME OVER.

I WENT, "OH, NO,WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN?"

HE SAID, "STOP BLAMINGYOUR CHILDHOOD."

SO IT'S NOT JUST YOU.

IT'S NOT JUST YOU.

BUT MY GRANDPARENTS,I SWEAR, I SWEAR.

I MEAN, THEIR CATONLY HAD TWO LIVES.

THEY WERE NEGATIVE PEOPLE.

THEY WERE LIKE... LIVINGWITH THEM FOR, LIKE, TEN YEARS

I MEAN, LIKE,WE'D BE SITTING AROUND THE TABLE

AND MY GRANDMOTHER WOULD SAY

BEFORE EVERY SENTENCE, I SWEAR,"BEFORE I DEPART THIS EARTH...

COULD YOU PASS THE KETCHUP?"

WE'RE WAITING FOR...THAT KIND OF THING.

AND MY GRANDFATHER--I USED TO WATCH HIM SLEEP

BECAUSE HE WAS SO INTERESTING,LIKE A VAN GOGH KIND OF GUY.

HE USED TO SLEEP

LIKE THIS: ( snores )

"AH, I'M A FAILURE,I'M A LOSER, I'M NOWHERE."

( laughter )

HIS BUSINESS CAREERWENT INTO THE TOILET

BECAUSE HE WAS SO NEGATIVE.

HE ACTUALLY OPENED UP--IT WAS A NIGHTMARE--

HE OPENED UP THIS THING--T.G.I. YOM KIPPUR

WHICH REALLY BACKFIRED.

IT WENT OUT OF BUSINESSTHE FIRST DAY.

PEOPLE WOULD COME OVER

THE MAITRE D' WITHTHE SKULLCAP WENT

"I'M SORRY, WE DON'T EAT TODAY.

THERE'S NO FOOD."

BUT THEY WERE SWEET.

WHEN THEY PASSED AWAY,IN THEIR WILL

THEY LEFT THEIR GRIEF TO SCIENCE

WHICH I FELT WAS A NICE THING.
