was it nerves because you were fully clothed in public?
Yeah that's a big part of it. I see lights and cameras my first instinct is to disrobe. Having to check that instinct really threw me off.
Can you break down the "attempted high five" for us?
Well I spun 95 cents on the wheel. I'd already blown the pricing game I played because I didn't listen to Jack Black when he told me that four kielbassas were worth more than five jars of pasta sauce. I think he felt bad I lost because he was rooting for me pretty hard on the wheel. When I hit 95 I just got so excited that I high fived Drew and then ran over to Jack and TOTALLY blew the hit, and grazed his head. Him being the awesome performer he is, he played it perfectly and dropped like I'd shot him. If you listen closely to the clip you can hear me apologizing to him after for not looking at his elbow when I went in for it, which is high five 101. My bad.
On a personal level, what are a few of your favorite films?
Porn, mainly. MILF stuff.
whats it like to meet Jack Black? Is his voice "fucking powerful?
It's fucking epic. Could blow houses down like the big bad wolf.
did it feel good? like his jack black head feel soft and smooth? what was it like? retarded question iknow but im curious
His hair was very silky, and his head was as hard as his rocking.
I hear you're a comedian, Jewish, tend to take your clothes off in public and Canadian. My first question is: Are you married to Gene Simmons because there are some striking similarities to his wife? My second question is, why on earth would you make a hobby of taking your clothes off in a place as cold as Canada? My third is, when and where is your next stand up show?
No I'm not Shannon Tweed though she's a lucky lady what with that tongue she married.
As to your second question all Canadians have an extra layer of blubber so that we can get naked in any climate. I am one of the few that takes regular advantage of this.
For the third, my next booked show is Sunday March 5 at the Lexington in downtown Los Angeles at Trapped With The Comics!
Do you remember that time a girl dumped you because you wouldn't get a New Years eve haircut?
I do. And still find it hilarious.
(I couldn't think of a better question, leave me alone)
Haha yes, yes I do. Well deserved too, I'd let myself go somewhat. I'd have dumped me.
After spending some quality time with Jack Black, do you know what an octagon is?
An octagon is an amazing shape that has eight fantastic sides and eight awesome angles.
Did you and Jack Black share some pasta sauce and kielbasa after the show?
Nah, unfortunately I had to eat kielbasa alone that night. Sobbing. They shuttle you out pretty quick once the show ends to go to the prize claim office. I didn't see him again :(
Andrew Ryan Fox,
Have you ever been a male stripper?
Well I've met me. Does that count?
Yes hello. I have a question. Why did you hit dis man? To me dis is not right. His face was exposed. He trusted you. To to me dis is not right. I hope you keep dis. I have seen dis man and he has riches beyond your beliefs. Remember dis. When di chicken comes to roost he will say okay and dat will be dat. Second, who left di door open?
It was that stupid cat, Teddy.
Do you get to keep your prizes or are they taxes to jesus?
Nah I had to forfeit everything. I'd have had to pay 37% in tax up front just to claim the prizes, as a Canadian. Honestly the way they value the stuff it's not worth it. Like those TVs. The big one they value at $5000 and I'd have had to pay the taxes on that, so like $1850. The thing sells brand new at Best Buy down here for $2100. So basically I won a $250 discount on a TV I don't want, and the ability to resell it at a profit on that thin a margin when someone can just get a new one with a warrantee for not much more was negligible. The trips you can't resell at all, you have to be one of the people to go on them. And they value those insanely. They priced two round trip COACH tickets from LA to Argentina at $9100. That's fucking crazy. You could fly around the world a few times for that much money. But that's the price I would have had to pay tax on.
Did you get a sweater at least???
Literally nothing. The contestants who were called down but didn't get up on stage each got $300, which is $300 more than I walked away with after winning the whole show.
I hear you have boundless Kareoke skills. Any advice for us tone deaf losers?
Alcohol. Lots and lots of alcohol. That's how you get good at karaoke. Or stop caring that you're shitty.
besides this iama, how will you make use of your 15 minutes of fame?
Oh god, that ship sailed already. If I get three extra people out to a stand up gig out of this I'll be pretty happy with the whole thing.
aww dont be harsh on yourself, im sure you could ask your friends and family to bring a +1 and double your audience
Like they take my calls.
