This question is for Al Madrigal! So my boyfriend does some stand up and considers himself an innovative, out-of-the box comedian. Today he told me about a (very) out-of-the-box bit he wants to do and I casually mentioned I didn’t think it would work. The next thing I know, he’s having a drama queen meltdown, telling me I’m so unbelievably negative and critical and just overall the worst. Please explain how a passing comment could evince such a total overreaction?
Just tell him to quit acting like a baby & in the future not to run his half baked ideas by you and let you know after he works it out. That’s what my wife says to me.
colbertfan asked you:
For Al: What’s the weirdest thing that’s ever happened to you behind the scenes at TDS?
Weirdest and Coolest - Colbert popped into my office, a former storage closet, for 20 minutes to chit chat.
girl4042 asked you:
Al Madrical: If you were to train me for four weeks for a stand-up comedy competition or a major audition, and had 2 million dollars on the line, what would the training look like? What if I trained for eight weeks?
Did you ever see Rocky 4? It’d look like the opposite of that.

“…Matthew proposes to Mary a second time when they’re standing in the snow. And they finally kiss and rejoice and this scene is more satisfying than most things in life. You could eat ice cream while having an orgasm on a private island populated by adorable kittens, looking up at white doves flying above you in the shape of a heart, and it would be just about as satisfying as that scene of Mary and Matthew kissing and professing their love for each other in the snow.”
