If your whole family was gunned down in front of you, you should not go to a comedy show. (2:26)

WELCOME TO THE BENSON INTERRUPTION,

WHERE I SPARWITH MY COMEDIAN FRIENDS

LIKE A KNIFE FIGHTIN AN ALLEY,

BUT THERE'S NO KNIVESOR ALLEY.

JUST A CHANDELIER AND A RUG.

I'LL BRING OUTMY COMEDIAN FRIENDS

WHO WILL STAND RIGHT HERE

AND SAY SOMETHING LIKE

"I WENT TO THE BERNIE MADOFFAUCTION,

"BUT I ONLY BIDON LEATHER JACKETS.

IT'S ALL PARTOF MY FONZIE SCHEME."

AND THEN...

I'LL BE IN THAT CHAIRRIGHT THERE

AND I'LL SAY SOMETHINGLIKE "NANOO NAN-NO."

OKAY, ARE YOU READY TO STARTTHE INTERRUPTION?

[cheers and applause]

YOU MAY HAVE SEEN THIS PERFORMERON DAVID LETTERMAN

AND IN THE MOVIE THE WRESTLER.

YEAH, HE DID NOT PLAYTHE TITLE CHARACTER.

PLEASE WELCOME MY FRIENDTODD BARRY!

[cheers and applause]

- [chuckles] THANK YOU.THANK YOU, EVERYBODY.

I'VE GOTTENPRETTY COCKY THOUGH

SINCE I'VE BEENON THE WRESTLER THOUGH.

I LIKE TO, UH, CRITIQUEOTHER ACTORS.

MY FAVORITE THING TO DOIS TO CRITICIZE AN ACTOR

WHO'S OVERACTING.

I'LL BE WATCHING A MOVIE, LIKE,"OH, THIS DUDE'S OVERACTING.

"OVERACTING.

"I MEAN, I DON'T KNOWWHAT IT'S LIKE

"TO HAVE YOUR WHOLE FAMILYGUNNED DOWN IN FRONT OF YOU,

"BUT, UH, PRETTY SUREYOU DON'T SCREAM THAT LOUD.

TAKE IT DOWN."

- TODD, WHAT IF MY FAMILYWAS GUNNED DOWN IN FRONT OF ME?

WOULD YOU FEEL BADRIGHT NOW?

- UH, LIKE ON--IF YOU WERE TAPING, YES.

- THAT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.

AS A COMIC, YOU SAY SOMETHINGTHAT YOU MAY NOT MEAN

TO OFFEND ANYBODY,

BUT SOMEBODY IN THE AUDIENCEIS LIKE, "MY FAMILY

WAS GUNNED DOWN."

AND YOU WANT TO GO,

"WELL, THEN WHY ARE YOUAT A COMEDY SHOW?

"YOU SHOULD TAKE A LITTLE BITMORE TIME TO MOURN

"BEFORE ROLLING THE DICEAND HOPING THAT THE COMEDY SHOW

WON'T MENTION PEOPLE BEINGGUNNED DOWN."
