NICE TO BE HERE

IN THIS GREAT,HISTORIC CITY.

OUR NATION'S FIRST CAPITAL.

OUR FOUNDING FATHERSCHARTERED PHILADELPHIA

AS THE FIRST CAPITAL OFTHE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

AND JUST AS OURFOUNDING FATHERS DID,

I AM GOINGTO GET OUT OF HERE

AS SOON AS I POSSIBLY CAN,

BECAUSE THIS TOWNIS KIND OF A DUMP.

MY NAME IS MICHAEL IAN BLACK.

VERY FAMOUS.

[cheers and applause]

YOU GUYS MAY KNOW MEFROM SUCH SHOWS

AS CANCELED,

COMEDY CENTRAL PRESENTS NO LONGER ON THE AIR,

AND MY SITCOM 2 1/2 EPISODES.

AND I'M, YOU KNOW,NOW I'M ON THE ROAD

AND I'M DOING COMEDY,I'M TRAVELING,

AND, YOU KNOW, IT'S OKAY.

I DON'T MIND IT.

BUT WHAT I HAVE DISCOVERED

IS THAT STRANGERS

DON'T FIND ME FUNNY.

AND I WILL GIVE YOUAN EXAMPLE OF THIS.

I'M AT THE AIRPORT.

AND I HAVE A 12:00 FLIGHTTO GO SOMEPLACE.

THE TIME IS 12:00.

I LOOK OUT THE WINDOWWHERE THEY, YOU KNOW,

THEY KEEPTHE AIRPLANES THERE.

AND...THERE'S NO AIRPLANEOUT THERE.

NOTED.

THE WOMAN SEATED NEXT TO ME

TURNS TO ME AND SAYS,

"DO YOU THINKWE'LL BE BOARDING SOON?"

AHA.

OPPORTUNITY TO BE HILARIOUS.

SO SHE SAYS, "DO YOU THINKWE'LL BE BOARDING SOON?"

AND THEN I--WELL,BEFORE I TELL YOU WHAT I SAY,

I SHOULD TELL YOU, LIKE,YOU'RE NOT NECESSARILY

GONNA FALLOUT OF YOUR CHAIRS

WHEN YOU HEAR MY RESPONSE.

HOWEVER, WHEN YOU CONSIDER

THE SPEED WITH WHICHI RESPONDED,

YOU VERY WELL MAY THINKTO YOURSELVES,

"NICE JOB, FRIEND."
