  • >> YEAH, BECAUSE I HAD BEEN ON SATURDAY NIGHTLIFE LIVE FOR A

  • YEAR.

  • AND I MET HIM ON THE WAY FROM ATLANTA TO L.A

  • HE WAS ON THE PLANE.

  • AND HE WAS AWARE OF ME BUT I WASN'T LIKE A BIG [BLEEP], HE

  • WAS RICHARD, SO I HAD A COPY OF MIEF ALBUM, MY FIRST COMEDY

  • ALBUM.

  • I WENT OVER AND I SAID MR. PRYOR, I'M EDDIE, WILL YOU

  • LISTEN TO MY-- HE SAID OH YEAH, I KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

  • I GAVE HIM MY RECORD, HE PUT THE CASSETTE IN, PUT ON THE

  • HEADPHONES, I WAS SITTING BEHIND HIM WATCH HIM LISTEN TO MY

  • RECORD, THAT IS THE FIRST TIME MEETING HIM.

  • THAT IS THE WAY I MET MY IDOL, LIKE THAT.

  • AMAZING.

  • >> James: THAT IS INCREDIBLE.

  • BECAUSE I CAN REMEMBER, WE WERE TALKING ABOUT IT ON THE SHOW

  • THIS MORNING, AND I WAS LIKE I CAN REMEMBER JUST WATCHING OVER

  • SPECIALS MEANT SO MUCH TO ME.

  • AND I WENT BACK AND WATCHED THEM RECENTLY.

  • AFTER WATCHING COMING 2 AMERICA, I WENT BACK AND WATCHED THEM.

  • AND THEY ARE STILL AS BRILLIANT.

  • IT ALL HOLDS YOU KNOW.

  • BUT MY BIGGEST TAKE AWAY NOW IS I WAS LOOKING AT IT THINKING IF

  • I WAS WEARING HEAD TO TOE LEATHER ON A STAGE I WOULD BE IN

  • A POOL OF SWEAT, AT THE END OF THAT.

  • >> I'M NOT SWEATING AT ALL, NO SWEAT IN THE LEATHER SUIT.

  • THAT IS YOUTH, I WAS YOUNG, I WAS YOUNG AND I WASN'T SWEATING

  • A LOT SWRZ I FEEL LIKE IF I WORE LEATHER PANTS MY WIFE WOULD HAVE

  • TO ROLL ME OUT OF THEM AT THE END OF THE NIGHT.

  • IT WOULD BE THE SINGLE LEAST EROTIC THING.

  • I WOULD BE LIKE A SORT OF, SHE WOULD HAVE TO CUT ME, SHE WOULD

  • HAVE TO CUT ME OUT OF THEM TO RELEASE MYSELF FROM THE LEATHER.

  • >> NOW TALKING OF STANDUP, YOU HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS,

  • YOU ARE GOING BACK TO STANDUPMENT WHERE ARE YOU WITH

  • THIS, IS THIS SOMETHING THAT IS DEFINITELY GOING TO HAPPEN.

  • AND WHEN YOU DO RETURN, WILL THE LEATHER SUIT RETURN AS WELL?

  • >> I DON'T KNOW IF I WILL BE WEARING THE LEATHER SUIT, JAMES.

  • BUT THE PLAN, BEFORE THE PANDEMIC HIT, WHAT HAPPENED WAS,

  • LET ME GO BACK IN 2011 I KIND OF STOPPED MAKING MOVIES.

  • YOU KNOW, I'M TAKING A BREAK.

  • AND MAYBE SIX, SEVEN YEARS WENT BY.

  • AND THEN I KIND OF, MY BATTERIES GOT RECHARGED AND WAS LIKE OKAY,

  • I WANT TO DO STANDUP AGAIN.

  • I DIDN'T WANT TO JUST POP BACK OUT THERE DOING STANDUP.

  • I WANTED TO-- MAYBE DO A COUPLE OF MOVIES AND REMIND THEM THAT

  • I'M FUBBEE AND THEJ DO.

  • SO I DID DOLOMITE AND WENT BACK TO SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE AND DID

  • COMING 2 AMERICA.

  • RIGHT NOW THIS LAST YEAR WAS SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE CLUBS

  • WORKING OUT AN ACT, BUT THE PANDEMIC HIT SO WE HAD TO PUSH

  • EVERYTHING BACK A YEAR.

  • BUT AS SOON AS IT IS SAFE FOR EVERYBODY TO GO BACK TO BE IN

  • THE ROOM, WANT TO DO THAT AGAIN.

  • AND THEN AFTER I DO THAT, I'M GOING TO GO BACK TO THE COUCH

  • AGAIN.

  • >> James: BACK DOWN TO THE RECREATION LEVEL.

  • NOW LET'S TALK ABOUT COMING 12 AMERICA.

  • IT IS THE NUMBER ONE STREAMED MOVIE THIS YEAR.

  • SUCH A SMASH, FOR ANYONE THAT A HASN'T CAUGHT UP WITH IT YET,

  • EXPLAIN WHERE THIS MOVE WREE PICKS UP.

  • >> THE ORIGINAL COMING 2 AMERICA ENDED ON A, AND THEY LIVED

  • HAPPILY EVER AFTER LIKE A FAIRY TALE.
