That's Colorado you'll get all four seasons and it's when it Parker yes I do think you know us here in Denver were looking out the window because we've been here in about snow all week and we woke up and said what. You definitely want to have it looking like this alternative weather then came in and what you guys had issues getting here with zero inches of snow would have felt as though trade lightly because they elect we're not gonna making like Syrian are gonna make because it whether it's an anthrax and death but down south those a lot worse than it was up here you guys got the brunt of but he still you plow the only major ways there. So one thank you you guys are gonna be here at the anonymous stage here tonight tomorrow and in the tour. It's called the divided comedy tour and in his understand this the first time you guys have the station's election yet as this so it seems like. It's even more divided after the elects in that oil. Just the cleared up for everybody out there we've been calling this device counties threw away 23 years out so just so you guys know we got in on the ground floor of the history I'm sorry who count as well you've heard about it before hot it was cool yeah. August are now yeah exactly. I'll get it gotta get a couple Beers. And we are that we thought it was funny as somebody asked that the show last night more in lady was like sort of cause divide that kind of things it. We are divided country outright whoa we chemical or did this before but the whole point of our tour. Is that you see two different people you know in this is this why I got tired as I got to get back Brown's did from Belize where we've been friends for like 1718. Years. And you know we were colleagues as well so put this together so people. That you can be different have different views could that it is so we come together on stage door Q&A and that's what we leave people with this thing into different people to different backgrounds. Two didn't used to come together says are still call it by. And it just so happened and now the name just figured it had to sit next level meaning you had and I got by people thought he started because of his leg now there has been doing it for years grant. And innovating we do we do the Q anything in at the end we become together and he reached he stone said that the we can get that we decent come together in the -- dual Q and eight. And sometimes it's hilarious and last night in Colorado Springs and I was like. Well this this is divide that added I don't well I have my game repeat some of the questions we got but there are questions and I was like. Is it doesn't seventy last rescue and again real cop out Carl just very little different than them very ideal product differs that a questions yeah I think that. Who would win several water fountains really. Improve those cable car Alice Fraser different breed that's all we put blizzards in between the mega culinary expert I don't come out here. So we're gonna have to take its company while 1031 dot com C can get those a pick them up and so how did you two meet. I was work in Seattle he was live and okay and you and I and had his Seattle underground and down we you know we were together and I was like 2002001. And those 2000. And then. Yet anti who's funny and and I say amen giver I am an LA bureau command LA. Hit me up and like a weeks later. Soto in my own an 800. My luggage I'm here and I like the public is saying that. I don't want to. If you want to hit it isn't the clearly the house any time you think whenever colleague and there are definitely got a better I think we do gave fox a new idea ports that come okay yeah I had to sort of that. Better than that sorry anyone let us this past and that's that's a fact that we've also got to be the executive and just like guys seasons are just a moment yeah. I look at the. But no we knew we nobody's really ever like a by the time and he was our first real friends that I had in Los Angeles. And so but we have never really worked together so time went by you know we know which has noticed him stuff. And we were to sit around and as a man we've never done a show together. And at the time it wasn't really the political climate that is now but we elect me and we may be something that we can go to and you give you Yuba certainly not. So put the two are together and from that you're on sort raises the bonus due Coutts. You know since those so that's how how much do we know how long different. But the cool thing about coming together for the tour was. Dude I really don't look at these atheists who tell you more about that. I'm going to have any moment so. I don't look different era vet and mentally in an autonomous and but that's that's another reason why light when we came together knowing our past and everything like that it just made more sense because we're comfortable rooms of the even though some are views. A totally different but I. Think the misconception is is. That if you have differing beliefs or different opinions that you just can't get along with somebody. Because I'm I'm might be a little more money inside but I got friends who were very religious I got friends who you'll believe dinosaurs weren't around then that you know. Her Emmy and but I can get along without even if I don't believe anything they're saying. And asking that it is the key is always does this mean civil look at my grandma's religious right. It doesn't sell it soul to have these different views. And still be able put a show together. Is what's working right that we can work weeks ago Hewlett we're adjusting things from soda so. But the one thing has been constant is. Did the Q did become an onstage in the Q when they apart. This one the most fun part for us and you know we do our set and these are the jokes were doing the jokes for you today acumen is so we don't know what's gonna. So has become one of the more most fun part of the tour so far. What I this finally unique unique thing I think you know lots has I'll go to show. You can kind of get a by the people wanted to ask something of them about and that's got a quote they get a it'll opportunism interaction of the crowd yeah you know get some feedback from both you guys injured Tim demons are tackling and just go hey. Yeah it's your turn at bat don't worry about like what is that he's he's OK bottom of the twins and I you can read it and number of people do have you known people do have questions because that is the thing we are bringing together different audiences. Yelling abide is you might show. And you come to seem me you know you come to see and if you don't. Day and you should probably read the newspaper earlier article could you didn't just happen to come across that this show accidentally but you don't they show you might not know. What's direction it's gonna go in so sometimes you get people who like well I didn't expect to hear that so some people have questioned concerns. A Louisiana elected you know it'll tell you have any John temporal moments routed to and got the glassy you know guys like do you know what show you're going to it took to do. Think you're I will put his group the one who questions we got last night everybody in audience is like 10. Yeah it in the and so they looked over at the person asked the question and then they looked at a flight. Yeah I have a but without regard hepatitis can you say what the question was is possible there was there was a couple well I can say whoa whoa what lady goes.

By Michael Campbell first off you just said both of these on 5 kids am but it's up to our name was. Why do you want to say that hours as we did because you can't say it but just bloods Y yeah that lets you avoid why do you have the desire to retreat with. Then there was the cool thing about you know was an uncomfortable moment is still was like okay cool let's just say it let's talk about his fate and so we did say the thing is likely user why would you even want to say and then you get. Audience through right now but you still had a few do you like toasters and morneau left. An independent candidate as it raises he would back raises android okay when he goes.
