tv   Dennis Miller One  RT  October 29, 2021 7:30am-8:01am EDT

7:30 am
us one, we are joined by a great comedian and i'm telling you he, he set a template back then sort of an existential angst thing that i've seen derivative as of sense. but the 1st time i saw bobcat, it was like edvard monk, the scream had grabbed the mike and got up on stage. bob's bobcat is a comedian actor, director, producer. and he 1st appeared on late night with david letterman use like it was like a bill. hicks in thing is 20 years old. and you remember you thought oh there's a great comics since then. he's gone on to star multiple hbo and showtime specials, as well as directly not. and he direct stand up specials for other comedians to bob catch. new film is a road trip documentary. i think the brilliant data golden vault called joy ride and it will be released in theaters and video on demand on october 29th. that is a long way around to say, please welcome bob, catch all the way, bob, how are you? i'm great. it's very, very kind. i have to say thanks to me,
7:31 am
and you'll be surprised how often i sincerely think of you. i remember a line of yours. i was blue and i was out gardening out gardening, and i remember the semester alone has the acting range of a daisy air rifle. and i was thinking about, you know, daisy air rifle is why that made dennis miller really planning. you know, i mean, i have a baby, good job, but i doubt down the specificity of the silly one click and i had a career that's well i so i didn't leave this fabulous brother. you want to doubt this into arcadia, even if it loses. some people you'll get the residual on the front side from cognitive 70. i was like saying like i was a days ago and i said you might want to carbon date some of these jokes. i think they were discovered by dr. leaky son. and i was like, hey, that's not
7:32 am
a dennis miller, joe, but i think i owe money for that. well, i am flattered that anything clubs in the you're very active. my know it's funny. it's like and you know, what's funny is, is i did call me like the, and i always wanted to say this. i, you know, very cremeans passed away and in berry berry would say, mean things about me. you know, that's very criminal. but one thing that i wanted to let you know is that here he would had a big, soft spot for when he was disclosing and going through all his trauma about what kind of guy you were, how you stepped up, how you gave a mighty to fly back to deal with it and he would, he would say that he would speak very sweetly of you. so he would say mean things. he said mean things about me. but i wanted you to know that barry, i'm to the to term leaving had a always. when always let people know what you did for him. so well that's, that's sweet and i'm telling you if anything and common people say,
7:33 am
does it please you with a crowd to get laughs. yeah, it does. occasionally though there's some sort of obi wan cat who you want to make laugh. really hard like and very was one of those guys. yeah. i would. yeah. i would like to go a little but i wouldn't go way out of my way and turn into a sweat act. but i'd go a little bit out of my way to make cremeans laugh. and when he short old boy that feels good. yeah. now listen, you will always exhibited, was funny. it was cloaked under the you know, the, i always viewed your act is like surface tension on a glass. when you have one of those glasses that over fill those red plastic glasses. and there's like a little thing that won't run down the side, but it sits on the top and it's shiver. it's tremulous. and i just always watch your act and say there's a nice the phrase on their legs said he. but if you listen to the jokes, i always have brothers, joseph, brilliant. they would stand alone. but when you mix them with the character, it was very, very oxy katie. but i actually think you kind of were right,
7:34 am
you'd be like, well, this works, but you can leave me. but this is a pretty good bit now, and i think you are smart enough to see that people were, weren't listening to me, you know, which was again, a nice thing that you did for me. but yeah, i just like the idea i was trying to parody stand up when i was going to pretend just and then, and then i guess became the thing i was trying to parity and i became a standard so, so that i kinda, you know, there was a time where i had to jettison the character i was in nashville, i was that as a nice, i remember the night and i was like, i can't do this person. i had him or you think it was a big the audience that be yelling. and i and i went out and i use my real voice, and sure enough there's people go and do the good day. my adult daughter, that's her favorite heckle. like if i'm on stage, i know she's in the room because i do have more kids love taking the other parents because one of my references are my one son and my
7:35 am
references not have a carbon date on you referred to earlier, but some reference to my kid, look amino, go. is that a d or b c that reference? it's the circle of life symbol and the 3rd yeah. yeah, the ball busting gene doesn't skip a generation. it's not a recessive gene. it goes right out a tell me about joy, right? but tell me about the joy of directing. tell me, i always thought you had such an intelligence that i thought you'd be good, wasn't empathetic character. you would orchestrate the stuff. tell me about joy, right? tell me is dana, and it was the great thing to go yes. to dana and i would we go on the road together and we would flip a coin and see who was going to headline. and then we both realized that the people are enjoying us just sticking around at the beginning, the show more than they are enjoying our stand up. so we just started doing sets
7:36 am
together. then we went out and filled that and we are in a car accident on the way to tape it. and then i filled a bunch of shows. then the pandemic it. so it actually gave me a whole chance to cobble together. and hopefully it's funny for people not just stand up, but you see our relationship. huh. because dana says, you didn't, we didn't like each other when we met and i go, that's not sure. i hated you for that. and then the more i just scored is he really was terrified of me and i had a, you know, i had to break down on television. in fact, on your show, i remember i, i was on the night johnny carson was retiring. i go, we can do anything we want. let's be free and i took my pants off, which would probably would have been comedy one, a one, but then i took my underwear off too. so that was, i was, it wasn't good. it was like, you're nice enough to have me on the show and i'm like,
7:37 am
daring you to reboot me on that. so jim morrison, florida caught her breath. i was nude on you know? yeah, but pamphlets. i still didn't want people to see my love handles. so, but, so i'm being destructive kind of publicly and dana had a genuine, actual breakdown where he's hospitalized for a whole week. you know, i was angry, everybody else. he was angry at himself and then we kind of we kind of both went through this at the same time. and we tell that story. and a lot of, you know, it's like these 2 kinds. irish catholic there's, there's dana gould, conan o'brien kind of oppressed, you know, and then there's b, the pogues, you know. yeah, yeah. you cry. yeah. you fall in love, you drink too much, you go to jail. you know, you said that the night you had 2 different approaches. you know,
7:38 am
i always look at dana and i think of melanie when, when i'm, when a brain that quick and that astute about the human condition flips on itself. and turns on itself, dana gold, john delaney. yeah. fight you are fighting a savage. pho, when. when that flip flips and you turn on yourself, it's the irish irish and inches tucker, this names are cincy. come down stealthily on that rope in the room. you don't even know, brother. um, so i know that directing a documentary, as errol morris will tell you as different chops, than to writing a theatrical release or something like that, or a comedian special. tell me what the joys and the rigors are. each of each one of those 3, bob, what style? documentaries. what did you enjoy and what, what do you find arduous, what documentaries is, is, is different because the, i here are limitless. you know, you can narrate something,
7:39 am
you can animate something, you can, you can tell the story a 1000000 ways when dana were make it doesn't. dana told me that we didn't like each other and i always hated them. i was like, secretly i went, oh, i think i got a narrative here. i actually, i but damn, if this narrative has to play out, i'm going to have to apologize to him. i don't. and i made myself the bill and because i found footage of me being not very clever and just being vicious and i put it on. so my ego, it's like, do i want to look bad? or the story teller went out. i was like, ok, i look like. and by the way, i saw with an audience and i couldn't buy a laugh for about 7 minutes after you seem retiring. and though, like people do not like me and but so during the day with me and it was kind of worrisome because i didn't want to be indulgent and, and hope we have
7:40 am
a story. i think no matter how brilliant a community is, 45 minutes and there's, there's a, a fatigue that sets it. so i think hopefully this thing got around that by giving them a story. but i love like doing like patton as well special you know, to be able to talk to him and maybe maybe offer a suggestion here and there. and then knowing well in this special he's going to, the last one i did with him was when he disclosed about why. so i was like, how do you attack that? it's like, you know, i, so i don't want to ever cut. so i had a long land, the slow is slow as push, and so, so no one notice is that maybe but, but, but, but you probably subtract some taxes, you're aware that we're not bouncing around. yes. so it's, it's, that's the challenge and it's sometimes directing a live comedy show is as simple as lead the comedian. now before they go on,
7:41 am
like i usually will say you got this, you did all the work, you know, no matter what they always the 1st other little tight. and then as soon as i say, i could put that on t v, that's perfect. and then you see the next show and they're very loose. but it's weird on patton patten's think. it is the 1st show because him disclosing was just so you know, motional emotional. when you do something more theatrical, there's always the david lean approach, which is the, the man who walks around like this for 2 years in the desert gets the shot. perfect . or there is the mike nichols stuff i watched. who's afraid of virginia with the other. i don't think i got that so evocative of the nature of the human condition and what i is, there's 2 approaches when you're doing it the like to be in the actors here a little more about this, or do you like to set up the shots or do you just like to co mingle them? i, i, i've always take, i have my agenda when i think visually without someone, again, potential. but i have my agenda. but then once i start here in,
7:42 am
there's the feed back or, you know, letting people know that i'm always, i have, i start the day with a shot that will have all my hope to dreams out of the statistically going to look . and i will get it if it just doesn't make sense. like, you know, i know you're not going to want to cut off of robin's face right now. well, you know, it's funny. i was, i was visiting robin on this that of the college and i'm city actually might nichols and i'm like, oh my god, my nichols and i just sweating and i don't know what to say. it might, it goes goes, i'll tell you something. i'm like, wow, might know, give me some advice. showbiz. so out of hurry up and wait. like fancy grass or gas? no one rides for free. like that's very good. i have the same thing
7:43 am
with richard dod are you goes kid, i hear you want to direct go to my trailer with your dad is going to give you advice. he goes, take a lot of naps and just out, if you're me, a pillow and i think a map and i ran into it before he passed the way i go. do you remember that he was? it's true or so i get a bobcat go play when we get back on the other side of the break. and once again, the new film is a road trip documentary. think i think thelma and louise if they were devastatingly funny, bob good gold white and the brilliant dana gold whose inhabited the writer's room at the simpsons before. homer had his 1st duty at it's called joy. right? it'll be released in theaters and video on demand. on october 29th. we'll come back and ask them how they achieved that push and shot as a director and he visited robin. there was a talk about the great, a lot of the sweetest man ever and bob, i think he and bob were bestier robin williams or bob got bobcat goal 3 right after
7:44 am
this on dennis miller plus one. ah ah well what explain show biden's sudden drop in the polls as a candidate you promise to return to some form of normality. however, his current standing with the public as anything but is his agenda the problem? maybe he's not as likable as he once see. he is in trouble and so is his party and it has to be rash,
7:45 am
to be able to afford enzyme and find the luxury that for sure. despite having the most expensive health care system in the world, we have poor life expectancy. we have higher infant mortality, we have more deaths from treatable causes. so americans are suffering every day from it. it's as if these people don't count. i saw how they can choose your customers and dump a sick so also you can satisfy their wall street investors. no parents should have to see what i saw. if you're denying payment for someone's care, your make life and death decisions and determine who gets to live and who dies to me, that's best getting away with murder with
7:46 am
the folks. welcome back to dennis miller plus one. always enjoy talking to a fellow comedian because i know the interview will go well because we have some sort of 20 to 32nd switch that goes off where we say make it interesting. it's like when you 1st do, letterman book he says, have 2 stories and make them funny. we're doing chauvinists here. i just thought i used to like that framing device, right? they get it. what are we doing here? what is the make it funny? the new film is a road trip documentary called joy ride released. as i said, v o d on october 29th. if you did go that you were there with that look, cause i always look at that opening shot, the slow push and oh, my gosh. and do you have any idea how they did it? no, no, i'm assuming it's no,
7:47 am
i don't know. i mean that now you could actually do that and camera so much, obviously better c g effect, you know, i go on c, g, i know it's not. you know the citizen kane, pushing through the skylight at the atlantic city club in the reg, where i think they actually have to open the window of the i can't quite figure it out when i watch it. well, in the, the movie i do with robin, the world's greatest dad. there is a scene where robins walking down the hallway and he's hearing his he wrote a fake, his son dies the long story. i don't know whether it's sundays during auto, erotic, and fixation. robin wright, the suicide letter trying to make this kid seem like he was smart and sweet and he was a horrible child. he's being haunted by his son. he's hearing the fake suicide note . he wrote, he's walking down the hallway and, and i go and, and kyle appears in the, in the, in the library window as you walk along. he's actually, he's, he's,
7:48 am
he's saying along with his i. so how you doing as i like it, that computers are c, g, i go know he's going to stand behind the camera. i'm going to turn this light on and then it will show up in a 3rd it off. it will that work? i guess maybe she would win for plates, but i got it. or where did you get that idea? i got the haunted mansion. i could i think there was like, i think you can't make are in a mansion was that you have to sell my house. i go go, you're going to stay to change quality hotel, the rest of it. so next time i see that so, you know, be thinking, graham grinning goes a lot, but you, you low and macgyver. dad was a c, g i on the budget you have for that, i'm sure, and placebo, but to do the reflection of this beautiful brother. it's like i like,
7:49 am
i like the solutions that like terry gilliam will have like scenes where it's an army and then you find out he only had 30 guys and 2 are standing in front of the land. the 2 are standing on the hill and then you know, so i, i, i often feel like when you have to do stuff in camera, it almost seems like it works better. i don't know. i, you know what? i think of all the people i know robin encountered a lot of people, but i think he fully trusted most of you and i know you and he loved you dearly. i know you know, and she's, i still see him occasionally. i just get such a pang just because he was such a it's obviously the comedian of his generation, such a sweet, although he really was a kid playing loan soldiers in the attic was a 100 percent. and then you saw, he had thousands and thousands of toys. that's what he did with part of his fortune was to get those, those army guys. but i, i often neg, of them like,
7:50 am
i can't wait to tell him this. you know, one of the things he did that was very kind to me is he would act even though we weren't. i'm sure he did this to you. he was generally interested in what you were doing and what was going on with you. he would act like we were peers and clearly we weren't and i miss that friend. you know, i miss i, i think about every day and but, but i used to think it was like going to be like an arm that i was missing. it was never going to grow back, but actually now i just try to remember that he would want me to be happy and, and, and i do just remember i try to remember a lot of the last and stuff. you know, whenever i get a pregnant pause anywhere, i'll go, i find myself saying prime minister both away courtesy phone, which is the kill. it was like but you know, it's wrong with that. a little pregnant is mind when it was fire and listen robin.
7:51 am
i don't, one of my grandma is a freak when he was an arrest of state. he was very measured, he was sold, you know, he had great reflections. he had a stranglehold on the human condition. would you get a mapped and he was in common kill mode. he did not like pregnant pauses that he but always to do that stuff. i didn't even realize it. and so i was doing joy, right? i was looking at the footage, i'm looking at my gate and the way i'm walking and stuff. oh, you're a, you're a thing mark, that's what you're doing. i mark so much. he would come self mark. oh, you know it's funny, but i get is. i know it, it's funny because when i think of them they were both work and the major touch base. i know you and, but we had a very well we love comedians this. well, it was funny is like when he passed away,
7:52 am
my brother goes to remember when you made boy played drums in the basement in the rock because because he was david was going to sing and play guitar. i had like all this music equipment and i was like, no, no man, we need a drummer. and so i would say, and he played drug, of course he could play drugs well, but i maybe that's why we're friends. like a i he invited me to see the glass spider to tom. kenny and i are there and he's like, he afterwards, he's like so what you think and i go, it was kind of like guy guys and dolls. i thought it was more like pippin. i go maybe angels in america because you do fly in on the wings and he's just like, look at as like what, what is like you could see, oh, this is someone making fun of me to my face. and then he laughed and then we became friends. i was went to the studio with him and he's explain to me to all the young dudes. he's like, i really love martha. hope all i heard they're going to break up. i was,
7:53 am
i was crushed. i thought i were right, i'm going to write them. i hit song and then they'll stay together and he goes, so i went home and i wrote a hit song and we're in the studio and i go, well, why don't you bust out some of that today? or you know, they were like like pharaohs, but they love the braid against but you know, he was like a made boy. he was a little rough and i think they love brought up against somebody who is now going to get away. yeah, i think it was just, it was kind of funny. i think i became more of a fan later. and as a kid, i was so much in that boy. so maybe that's why we became pals. but, you know, 1st time your eyes think about rather, you know, it is the 1st time. and madam, i couldn't talk, but i was just back when i was wearing mascara and leisure suits on the agent crying. and i met the company connection. they go, they go robin williams, come go,
7:54 am
go in the kitchen and hide some say in the kitchen. and then he comes in because he's hiding from people. so what are you doing here? they don't want you to meet me a that's what they call and they all, are they all the films? they met. cute. yeah. it's. yeah. it's just that one who are you digging, growing up in syracuse. i see i've worked accuse a few times and i know that's not a mindset up there a little from working there, but what were you like to do? it's probably a lot like you're from pittsburgh. yeah. same thing. same kind of thing. you know, russ bell and a lot of catholicism and stuff but it was just, you know, i grew up so we were, we were like that family in, in mask. you know, there was harley's on the front lawn egg parties and kids drank with
7:55 am
it. it's really not, it was, it was like, it was, it was i grew up motorcycle clubs in the, in our home when i was a kid. so i think i came out. ok. is there a funnier way to describe your operating than it was like a family and mask like about immediately putting a perfect picture for? well honestly, if you are a sport or anything in my home, it was, it was called court clothes. you know why? why bobby court clothes, they, they, they really nervous for. it's like i just thought i'd put a jacket on today. i know you end up in the bay area what it's all good but i, i think it chops informed the like, dang, hosen. places like that up in boston road. yeah. that was, that was like, you know, the comedy scene there was really diverse. it really was like like, i mean style wise. like if they thought you were being derivative of anyone else,
7:56 am
you wouldn't get stage done. guys like linda clark and steve sweeney was wearing. there's keller and steven wright and paula poundstone and myself and kevin me. so we're all kind of, it was really encourage that you had to have your own style and if you didn't you would get blackboard. so i think it did help a lot, but it was also really violent and scary and crazy. i remember i remember this guys like i'm going to go home, get my knife lady clinics. guy leaves and he comes back. he's got his knife and the clark brothers are working the door and they just beat the guy. they beat him up, so they beat him. right. and a damn gavin's got a court who's got a cocktail and he's watching this, this, the, the guy's going to be in the guy that was all bloody swear to god and banga. hey, hey, can you? if i got your knife, you have a bag,
