- THANK YOU, DAVE.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU GUYS WATCHA LOT OF HIP-HOP VIDEOS,

BUT, MAN, BITCHESARE THE SHIT.

BITCHES ARE SO MUCH BETTERTHAN REGULAR WOMEN.

THEY'RE ALWAYSIN A GOOD MOOD.

THEY JUST DANCE AROUNDIN THEIR THONGS

AND THEIR HIGH-HEEL SHOES,AND YOU GET TO SMOKE BONGS

AND PLAY THE XBOXALL DAY LONG.

THEY NEVER SEEM TO MIND.BITCHES NEVER COMPLAIN.

THEY NEVER TELL YOU TO TAKEYOUR FEET OFF THE COUCH.

OR, "WE GOTTA GO SEEMY MOTHER."

BITCHES DON'T EVENHAVE MOTHERS.

[cheers and applause]

GREG GIRALDO, VERY SIMPLY,WAS THE REAL THING.

AND YET LIVEDAS HARD AS HIM

AND I THOUGHT, WOW,THAT'S HOW THEY TELL YOU?

- HE HAD THIS BRAINTHAT WAS COMPLETELY

THIS, LIKE, SUPERCOMPUTERTHAT JUST WOULDN'T SHUT OFF.

IT HELPED HIM GENERATEALL THIS STUFF,

BUT IT ALSO TORTURED HIM.

- FROM THE MOMENT HE GOT ONTO THE MOMENT HE GOT OFF,

HE DIDN'T TAKE A BREATH,AND IT WAS ALL FUNNY.

- WE NEED A WHOLE NEWENERGY SOURCE.

WE NEED SOMETHING ELSE.IT'S NOT GONNA BE CONSERVATION.

LET'S FACE IT, AMERICANSARE NOT GONNA CONSERVE.

WE'RE NOT GONNA SHIFTTO SMALLER CARS.

WE CAN'T!WE HAVE BIG, FAT KIDS.

- EVERYBODY THINKS OF HIM,YOU KNOW, I THINK PUBLICLY

AS KIND OF A ROAST COMIC.

NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS

WOULD I THINK OF HIM AS, LIKE,AN INSULT COMIC OR A THING.

HE WAS A HEADY COMIC.
