Christmas gift why not the one she can have a couple of chicken maybe it's not the perfect gift for your family, but it gives the perfect gift for poor family ninja chicken can break the cycle of poverty for poor family yes chicken chickens and provide nourishment for family and they can sell those exit the market for income when you donate a chicken or any other gospel for Asia. 1% of what you give goes to the field and get the ball went gospel fundraiser to support family. Jesus family this Christmas, give them six explanation see chickens and camping guy. You are led by the caregiver and burn your this set up our country right now is is just you were all over the map. Here you one of these unique individuals because the nature of your work that you have seen more America than most politicians ever will, including precedents that's part of being a standup comedian that you get out and you spend time in util minuscule places around the country you're interacting with America on a level that very few people really do as you look out the landscape. That's not Corona. That's a favor and if you look out on them. The landscape and you see the unsteadiness of this country that I know just what you love, and these people love you and you how do you write and dig into comedy to help get them to a place of safety while they where they could just catch their breath or taking the if they have to, and Barry Manilow said this years ago. What I heard this interview he said I'm not there to cure cancer. I just want to help make you forget about it for about an hour and 1/2 and I thought it was such a great quote and that's that's that's your heart I know that, but how does that work now in this situation, walk us through that little bit you know about Mallow last year. I remind everybody I'm going to be looking at is going to be financial it might be all it might be emotional but every single person that I look at is going to struggle and everybody that you ever see him struggling so you go back to the point I don't think laughter might struggle all white but going quite laughter does music. That is why a lot of things and and and and one of the coolest things about being a comedian as a kid I've never went anywhere vacation for what was going from Georgia to Denmark South Carolina to stay in my grandmother's work for q. week on the farm in all 50 states and I met many people that have been every state and not only all 50 states almost every particle and and and the biggest thing I learned from that is the scenery changes that actions change people or people. People are the same everywhere you go things that people want and desire are the same everywhere you go you know if I was contemplating the other day always amazes me that when the country is in crisis like like it is now our 9/11 or whatever that you people rise people.

People want to take care of the job. People go out of their way to take care of each other, which is a cool kind of phenomenon. So you know as a comedian what you're looking for is what we have in common and and that's where comedy is for me. I was very lucky very early on and in my comedy career to learn what worked for me and that was, I just assumed that if I fall something are my wife said something or my family did something I'm going to assume other people are thinking and saying and doing the same thing and and and so that for me I didn't have to sit there and go. What's funny.

What's funny. What's funny like like I did a joke on the last session with Larry. I should hear hear things that Google can't tell you one of the things was that of all the serial out of all the serial Cap'n Crunch is the most time intensive about that a minute if you if you gave it to. After you pour the milk around you will the roof of your mouth to shred the milk on in the Film on your case a wire brush to get rid up about five why don't Cap'n Crunch what you pour the milk on when you dive into a people burst out laughing and so I'm like wow I'm not the only person to have this all on the assumption if I thought this people in thought and so you know that the biggest compliment for me is after show when semi comes up because all my gosh you been in our house. All my gosh I've done that arrived thought that you realize you know politically in this country where as divided as I remember in my lifetime, but I think you could take people from both ends of the political spectrum and just sit down with them and Paul and you will find that they probably have 85% of everything in common but is Friday. We don't dwell on that 85%. We dwell on the 15% that is different is a comedian that 85%. When I walked out 30 thought there. I don't care how you want to find things and you know in an environment like were all living in right now. What you do what I you enjoying our broadcast on John Butler and I coproduced Peter show hope for the caregiver since it began.

I like to think that I'm responsible for the explosive growth the shows enjoyed. I'd like to think that but while Peter pays me not to. So let's move along all jokes aside though. I do have a great time with the show.
