Two Dads the podcast before the whole thing and subscribe and now here's Rory scovel talking with me on the first episode of Dad's the podcast

00:01:23
did your other siblings also realize the the reward of making your dad laugh at that become competitive or is likely to be the funniest who could get his attention in that in that way Bill Murray who said that his education in comedy a lot of it was around the table and table and my parents still with us and still living in in Brookline, Massachusetts and they sit at that same table and I see it every time I go home and they still serve food to the places of their kids out there. It's like baseball now, they just put up cardboard images of the difference us and food just going bad in front of these the old karate cardboard cutouts spinner riding with stinking food and the food just dribbles down the front and then they have arguments with us, you know.

00:02:23
Why can't you do better in math? And anyway, yeah, I go when I sit at that table and I think yeah, I used to I know exactly where I used to sit and each one of us would try and get on a roll and try and get something going and that's where it started. That's where it started for me funny better now like a comedian meaning I'm like, you know, he's funny but his delivery is to what do you think about it a question about it?

00:03:10
Speed it up and we're going to rewrite it and you can set up 7 time I get it I get it. We all get it. Are you a fucking scientist Iraq immediately cardboard cutouts another I'm funnier than my microscope. I work in a lighthouse Southwest sure. I think that's probably true of all of us a minute. I don't know which one it was your experience. When did you worried you're going to say and I'm just going to say that you're one of the funniest people I know and I don't know a lot of people, you know me and your dad. I know the Secretary of Defense and I think you're the funniest of those too, but you're you're very

00:04:10
Mary incessantly funny person and in a very unique way and it's just thinking like you had to have known that earlier that you had that superpower. You had to know one. I appreciate you saying that very much. I agree that I think with Bill Moran what you just said is that it it starts at such a young age. Is it also started for me realizing how much my dad in like his siblings how you could get their attention if you did something funny cuz they would all try to be funny. I think to make their dad laugh and as like the Grinch out of that I got to witness the process and then try to figure out how to fit into it which is funny cuz I don't think any of my other siblings do that at all. I had no competition of anyone else trying to be funny. All of my other siblings were like nowhere like making Straight A's and becoming doctors and that's what's impressing dad. Well, I'm choosing a career that doesn't pay anything for a solid decade.

00:05:10
So who's winning now? So who's winning? Cuz he'll smirk. Sometimes it might, but I remember my dad very clearly I think was on AMC back when AMC was actually play classic movies and it was like a rose, maybe Turner Classic Movies, but it the Marx Brothers Horse Feathers came on and my dad made me watch it. And I remember that kind of the light bulb went off that adults can be silly and then I was like, oh, I I like this I thought adults, you know could make jokes but then it never occurred to me you can make a career out of it. So I agreed I'm willing to bet that there's a lot of comedians who do have, you know, influencive either parent right for some reason and I think that's kind of where this podcast generates from is that mystery of of Dad's in Father's and why why was it that when your dad laughed at a joke that meant

00:06:10
So much to you and I I bet you there's so many dads who were like tough. It was tough to get them to laugh or it meant something. It's one of the best connections you can have with somebody because there's a kind of making someone laugh. It's something even kind of strange that uniquely you is a way of almost having a secret handshake like you can go you know that they really understand you. It's such a r i such an intimate staying and so obviously right explained it a million times, but we're afraid of our dad's but we also there are heroes, you know, part of us wants to murder them. The other part thinks we'll know I'll get caught. I can't kill him. I'll do time in jail. I could look like an accident when you go down that hole for umbrella minor. So maybe this is the time to do it now before I'm

00:07:10
I turn 16 and I'm always putting stuff off with Roy It also says yes exactly. You know, he doesn't have a set schedule to go to lab a different time. So it's hard to position myself with the rifle in the right place. I don't know when the car is going to come by and you know, it was the right rifle. I ordered it through the mail, which was Oswald's mistake. Don't do that. You want to make sure it's not connected to you. Anyway, we've all had those thoughts and sums up all of our thoughts about fathers. But if you can make your father laugh, it's magical. It's just it's magical like, oh he gets me and I just reduced him to this shaking red face a fine pile you like that's fantastic. So, of course that would you then want to double down on that?

00:08:06
Okay, that was me talking with Rory scovel on the very first episode of Dad's the podcast and we were thinking it was very profound and wise coming in has depths. We didn't know we had God.
