  6. Many mediums do research on places and search for a valid story or reason for "energy". Like that show where they had mediums come in, after writing a fake story online. And they all quoted the fake story verbatim lol

  7. Interesting how many of the large comics met tragic fates: Robin Williams, Sam Kinison, Richard Pryor, …Jim Carey is on a downward spiral at present.

  8. 44:40 Apparently the "Belly Room" was not named that because belly dancers used to work there. It was named that, because at one time it was a place illegal "back room" abortions were performed. ((According to Bobby Lee on a Joey Diaz Pod cast.))

  10. 1 – Comedy store was fun and light. Not competitive.
    2 – Ungrateful comedian launches a strike so comedians get paid.
    3 – Comedy Store turns competitive because of money.
    4 – Comedian doesn't handle the pressure and kills himself.
    5 – Comedian that launched the strike: "I never went back to the comedy store after that. It was the most unnecessary death ever".

    Yes, I agree, you greedy twat. You basically pushed that guy over.
