The worst gig Joe DeRosa ever did involved Southern Illinois, a seatless van and an audience dressed as clowns. (3:42)

I WOULD LIKE TO TELL YOU

ABOUT THE WORST GIG I EVER DIDIN MY LIFE, OKAY?

TWO YEARS AGO,

I FLEW TO SOUTHERN ILLINOISTO PERFORM IN THE WOODS.

WHY?

BECAUSE I HAD TO PERFORM

AT THE INSANE CLOWN POSSE'SMUSIC FESTIVAL.

NOW, SOME OF YOU KNOWWHO THEY ARE.

THAT'S GOOD.

FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT DON'T,THEY'RE THE WORST BAND EVER.

EVER!THEY'RE HORRIBLE!

THEY'RE GROWN MENTHAT DRESS UP AS CLOWNS,

AND THEN THEY RAPABOUT BEING CLOWNS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

ANYWAY, I NEED THE MONEY,THOUGH.

I GOT TO DO THE GIG, RIGHT?

SO MY MANAGER --AT THE TIME --

[ LAUGHTER ]

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

HE SAYS, "GO TO THE WOODS.

YOUR CONTACT WILL MEET YOU THEREAND BRING YOU IN."

LIKE I'M GOING INTO VIETNAM

TO FIND GENERAL KURTZ ANDHIS CULT OR SOMETHING, RIGHT?

SO, ANYWAY, I GET THERE.MY CONTACT'S WAITING FOR ME.

IT'S A 40-YEAR-OLD MANDRESSED AS A CLOWN, OKAY?

THAT WAS MY POINT MANIN CASE SOMETHING HAPPENED

AND I NEEDED TO GO TO SOMEBODYFOR ADVICE

OR COVER OR PROTECTION.

AND LET ME TELL YOUHOW HE BROUGHT ME TO THE STAGE.

IN A VANTHAT HAD NO SEATS IN IT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

IN A VANTHAT HAD NO SEATS IN IT.

YOU KNOW HOW TERRIFYING IT IS

TO CLIMB INTO THE BACKOF A SEATLESS VAN

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GODDAMNWOODS, NONETHELESS?

IT ONLY MEANS ONE THING.

PREPARE TO BE RAPED BY A CLOWN.THAT'S ALL IT MEANS.

[ APPLAUSE ]

THAT'S ALL IT MEANS.

SO I GET THERE, RIGHT?

I'M DOING THE GIG.

IT'S NOT GOINGPARTICULARLY WELL.

AND I'M IN ABOUT MINUTE 47

OF WHAT'S SUPPOSED TO BEAN HOUR-LONG SHOW, RIGHT?

AND THEN A WOMAN IN THE AUDIENCEHAS HECKLED ME

FOR THE UMPTEENTH TIME.

I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE.

SO I DECIDE I'M GONNA TELL HERIN SO MANY WORDS

THAT I DON'T REALLY CAREFOR HER OPINION ON MY COMEDY.

BUT IT CAME OUT DIFFERENT, OKAY?

[ LAUGHTER ]

IT CAME OUT MORE LIKE,"DIE, WHORE!"

SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

SO, IN ORDERTO DEFEND HER HONOR,

THE ENTIRE AUDIENCE --

WHO ALSO DRESS UP AS CLOWNSAND CALL THEMSELVES JUGGALOS,

TO GIVE YOURSELF AN IDEA

WHERE THESE FRIGGIN' PEOPLEARE AT MENTALLY --

TO DEFEND HER,

THEY START CHANTING AT ME,IN UNISON,

"FAM-I-LY!

"FAM-I-LY!

FAM-I-LY!"

I DON'T KNOWWHAT THAT MEANS EITHER, OKAY?

BUT PUT IT IN PERSPECTIVEFOR TWO SECONDS, OKAY?

THINK ABOUT HOW SCARYIT WOULD BE

TO HEAR A RANDOM GROUP OF PEOPLE

THAT YOU HAD NOTHING TO DO WITHCHANTING THAT.

LIKE, IF YOU WERE WALKINGDOWN THE STREET,

LIKE, "I'M GONNA GO GETA WHOPPER."

AND YOU GOT TO BURGER KING.

"FAM-I-LY!

FAM-I-LY!"

"I'LL GET A BIG MAC.I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS.

I WANT NO PART OF IT.FORGET IT."

THEN PICTURE THEM CHANTING ITAT YOU,

AND ONLY YOU, IN ANGER.

THEN PUT CLOWN MAKEUPON THE WHOLE THING.

[ LAUGHTER ]

IT WAS -- IT WAS THE LOWESTPOINT OF MY GODDAMN LIFE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

BUT HERE'S THE FUNNY PART.

A YEAR LATER, THEY OFFERED MEDOUBLE THE MONEY,

AND I TOOK THE GIG.

SO...
