Obviously in the a lot of people wanted to go with a do or do you have any advice for people that are thinking like they wanna try to do stand up. Ice you know and I think there's more people that wanna try saying that knowledge is because there's so much access to like here's our sound like an old guy. But there wasn't any comedy anything when I started the only comic she saw. One like the Tonight Show you know solve once Kazuo was that you you know that was in channels there wasn't any type.

Having the guy literally say. And we you hear things around you hear that let it go and come back to your breath like I'm hearing that guy. As the same time I'm hearing some guy. Telling people how to do it joked it was one of the hardest things because I'm not supposed to be paying attention even on hearing this guy. Telling these I don't even know he wasn't a calming I don't even know he was telling these things that we're just so wrong. That it was the hardest meditation and a map dotted.
