How did I do this exactly?

- I don't know,but I don't like it.

- Okay, I had a fun thing

where I would go to my friendsand I'd learn stage slaps,

and so, like, if youjust slap somebody,

just don't get this knuckle in,just above there,

you can--you know, I'll show youon a girl so you guys don't--

wait, I missed it.

Well, all right, anyway,it's been a while.

- Trying to slapan audience member.

- [laughing]- No one else does that.

- You gotta treat your audiencelike respect, you know.

Slap them aroundonce in a while.

Anyway, I thought it'd be funnyif I did that to Madrigal.

- Not funny.- Yeah.

I was like, "Hey, Al.Hey, Al."

And then I just fucking--- Just--

- Pow!

- Open-hand smackedthe shit out of me.

- It wasn't reallya stage slap at all.

I mean, I tell youabove there...

- It was a real slap.

- I got him hereand above.

It got the two partsthat hurt the most.

And I--boom!

I was a little drunk too,

but I knew what I was doing.


- So then we wentback to the condo, and--

- He just took it, dude.

He was like, "Ugh."

- That's how fucked up I was,

but I'll never forget.

So we went backto the condo...


And I set an alarmfor 4:30 in the morning.


And I woke up,and I got two pitchers

full--filled them with iceand got ice water.

And I walked over,and I stood above Ari.

And I just poured it all overhim and his sleeping bag

and ruined the entire bed.

- Couldn't even go backto sleep after that.

Like, I woke up like,"What the fuck!"

- But I remember I--

then I leaned over him.

He's like:[babbling]

- That's a pretty good Ari.

- I leaned over him.[babbling]

I leaned over him,and I said,

"Never touch me again."

[laughter and applause]

Crazy person.

- I haven't. I haven't.- No.

- I haven't.- You shouldn't.

No one should.

- Al Madrigal, everybody.- Yay!
