I have a need in my heart to thank Tod Gordon for giving me the chance to be creative and book for you crazy bastards. I have a need to thank that man Ron Buffone and his partner Charlie Bruzzese for sticking with us and sitting in a TV Studio and building that TV show for you…you are the craziest bastards I have ever met in my life…I love every one of you.
(Crowd starts to chant “Paul E.”)
