  • for you and Jack every question.

  • So you've gone the other way.

  • I think right away, as a comedian, you went even I was a little reluctant to do online and zoom shows just like this is so depressing.

  • But you went right in right away.

  • Thio, Zoom shows Jack, I don't know where it's posted, but I have not seen you do any online shows outside of this one.

  • Outside that.

  • I just didn't see a point.

  • I'm sorry.

  • I just didn't see a point to doing it.

  • And I felt that this was the time Thio learn some new and and build other parts of what you do as a comedian.

  • Like I missed stand up with, like, I genuinely go through phases from, like, all of this is not worth it without standing up.

  • And I like, sad about it.

  • I genuinely, like have those little breakdowns.

  • But I unfortunately found 2 to 3 other things I could do and and and have ready for when Cove, it is never done.

  • What are those things for someone?

  • That is because I've talked to two friends that are comedians that are really having a hard time with this E For me, it's like I, I like, live performing.

  • I hate this.

  • I like talking to people.

  • But I hate, you know, just performing like this.

  • What One of the things that you found that are fulfilling enough to keep you motivated, doing that thing, even though there's no end in sight, there's no promise that, like whatever you're writing is going to be made.

  • Or I just got fortunate that before everything kind of went down, I got lucky with some with Network, and so we're making a thing.

  • But it was It was just like diving into animation as much as I possibly can.

  • And even being a big fan of seeing what Maria has done on Big Mouth was like inspiration when itself and like, understand, like when you're such a stand up for the being part of your career, you kind of you know, other shit, but you don't know it.

  • I need to know everybody that led to a Aaron McGruder on Boondocks.

  • Like I gotta understand these animation studios, these people is like the same way that us for can sit around and talk shit.

  • And we could name comedians from the 19 twenties till now.

  • I wanna have that same level of knowledge when it comes Thio.

  • And that's just how I feel.

  • That's why I've been on Well, you tell you lean heavily into enemy because of the sword behind you eyes that katana.
