Three years ago we made this as the opening to the ADG awards in Hollywood. Dave Blass, Raf Lydon, Greg Aronowitz made it. Such awesome people. Dan Laurie is a legend as well. He was a marine, and even if he knows you’re messing with him, if you play golf with him, just say “vets don’t deserve benefits.” He will laugh it off at first knowing that you are trying to get him off his game, but the more he thinks about it the more he can no longer play golf and he will just start yelling.
This was shot on the set of Justified and it was magical to see so many of the people I’ve looked up to my whole life laugh with it on the night of the awards. I’ve been very torn lately about what Hollywood is becoming. Some of the best memories of my life and some of the greatest people I’ve ever met are out there. But the system as a whole has gotten so self indulgent and void of any moral or ethical backbone. A chunk of people never have to face the deranged PC world that the comedian has to navigate, but it’s slowly but surely infected the whole place.
I love watching videos like this tho. I’m still friends with this whole crew and I get very excited to see their continued success.
my hour special “feed the bear” is available tonight at hugepianist.com I hope you enjoy it
If it wasn’t for my dad’s weiner and my mom’s “ok,” there would be no Owen Benjamin. Piano brought me to stand up comedy. I’ve had two Comedy Central specials. I’m tall but suck at basketball, I’m smart but can’t spell, I’m nice but kind of a dick.
I’ve been in some movies: House Bunny, Staten Island Summer w/ SNL cast, Bucky Larson w/ Nick Swardson, Jack and Jill w/ Adam Sandler.
Also some TV shows: Sullivan and Son – produced by Vince Vaughn, Leno, Fallon, and Bar Rescue.
You may have seen/heard me in podcasts: Joe Rogan, Adam Corolla, Steven Crowder, and the Impractical Jokers podcast.
