Andy Kindler used to have a PR person to get his career going. (1:43)

I actually performedan Orthodox Jewish wedding

where the men were separatedfrom the women,

but they both came together

to not enjoywhat I was talking about.

I was... it's a verystrange business I'm in.

I was in Las Vegas, and I usedto play this comedy club where,

after the club, you'd signT-shirts for people.

My friend was, like, don't youthink that's a little cheesy

that you have to sign T-shirts?

Yeah, that sticks outlike a thumb here

in classy Las Vegas.

Hope the people coming outof the naked, underwater

female impersonator showwon't be put off

by me signing the T-shirts.

Hope the guy coming outof the Danny Ganz concert

with the "Get Her Done" T-shirtwon't feel it's gauche.

I used to have a PR personto get my career going,

and it's the worst, becausethey charge a lot of money.

All they do is they try and getyou excited about your career.

You know?They call you up and go,

"There's a lot of buzz.A lot of buzz.

"Mostly coming from us, butpeople are talking about you.

"They're talking about you.

Mostly here at the PR firm, butit's going to be exciting."

Then all they would do is theywould send me a sheet of paper

about a gigI already knew I had.

They would try to make it soundmore exciting, you know?

"You will arrive at John F.Kennedy International Airport

"at 3:00 a.m. in the morning,

"where you will be whiskedby taxi,

"that you pay for yourself,

"to your parents' homein Queens, New York,

"where you will get to sleep

in the very bedyou slept in as a child!"
