I am 34 years old and two years sober, sober birthday and regular birthday birthday, same day, which definitely makes my life easy because I forget things all the time. But definitely more proud of the two years sober versus the 34 years old. 34 is this weird age where I feel like I should be more accomplished than I am. I should own a home and just have like a Roth IRA and adult shit like that, but I do not. So I don't know. We all want when we can have but I'm happy with where I'm at right now. We can always be better. stoked to be sober. So shout out to all you guys or girls out there trying to walk the damn line. It's hard and I am proud of you. I love you guys. I am very, very happy today. I cannot wait to tell you about our guests. I am just getting ahead of myself. I'm gonna give you a little brief update with what's going on with me like I always do. So if you guys are consistent listeners, you know that I've been pretty active the last month more so than the past seven months because I'm recovering from my spine surgery. So the last month I've been auditioning for different jobs physical auditions. Today, auditions. I've been doing movies, shooting movies and stunts, partial stunts, and going you know, 1415 hour days on the movie sets, doing PT. Getting back into striking a little bit of kicking. And basically, it all caught up to me a few days ago, my body decided to remind me that we are only seven months post spine surgery by making my life hardest fuck. Basically, I woke up, unable to turn turn my neck to the left without pain. So I have slowed down significantly at the advice of my partner who has to put up with my complaining basically did nothing for the Fourth of July took it off been resting ever since. And I don't know what I'm gonna do for my birthday. Really, I think the smartest thing would just be to relax. But I do know what I'm doing tomorrow. I'm watching UFC 264 I'm very excited wish I was going to be there in person. It's going to be at the T Mobile arena sold out full capacity, like pandemic didn't happen. Things are getting back to normal. Very excited about that. It's a trilogy, blockbuster trilogy. really poor EA vs. McGregor. I think. I don't even know it's a hard one. I spoke to our guests about this. And it's just a tough one to call if I had to choose. I'm going to say

Unknown Speaker 3:55
McGregor. No no,

Unknown Speaker 3:57
no party. I don't even know Okay, clearly I'm not gonna bet on this one. Because I just don't know guys honestly and that's the thing about MMA anything could happen. Right? But the rest of the cards amazing. We got Stephen wonder by Thompson versus Gilbert burns. Very excited about that one tie to Vyasa versus Greg Hardy. I hope Ty wins and drinks are Shui Irene l Donna versus Yana qunit. Kaya always mess her name up. Sorry, Yana. That one's gonna be a badass fight. I love Irene. All Donna's striking. I don't know that one's hard one as well. Sean Oh, invalid. O'Malley versus Chris. Monte? No, not really sure who Chris is but I don't think too many people do so.

Unknown Speaker 10:09

Unknown Speaker 10:09
Diaz. Joey, thank you so much. I'm not gonna lie. I'm excited. I'm nervous. And I'm a little bit over caffeinated. But let's do this. I put my pants on one leg at a time, just like you my love. I know, I know. I'm excited. This is a little goal for me, I realized, because I don't know if you know this, but you were a big reason why I started my podcast. And this is episode number 58. We've been going a little bit over a year and listening to your podcast was a major reason that I finally pulled the trigger and started my own. So thank you so much for that. Well, thank you for starting. You know, I honestly love so many things about you. But I gotta say that the fact that you're just open and real about not the good times in your life, but the fucked up shit, as well. And I think that's kind of how I like to have my podcast, you know, it, we're all we like you said, we all put our pants on one leg at a time. And sometimes when you're in the limelight, or you get a little bit of notoriety, people, they dehumanize you, and they start talking to you like, you know, they wouldn't talk to you the same in person, right? They, they start saying things online that aren't so nice. And so I think the goal of this podcast is to let my listeners see another side of the guests that they don't normally see. That's why we talk about things like love, and romance and dating and sex. You know, I think I described it to you like Joe Rogan, and Howard Stern if they had a baby. And that's what this show is all about. So with with nothing else to say I want to jump right into the violence aspect of sex and violence. We all are a big fan of you here. And we know you made a recent move from LA to New Jersey. I want to know Are you still training Jiu Jitsu?

Unknown Speaker 12:02
now because I got to read I did my knee. I got a new knee. Yeah. I think I stopped jujitsu right before like as the pandemic hit. I stopped doing privates. And then I moved. And the pandemic was still on. I know there's a Gracie school, an old bridge. And when my daughter train, they have a program and they don't do it till my time. So I'm a little old. I like early jujitsu to get it over with. So once my knee heals, just maybe September. I think I'm going to start doing privates. There's like a brown belt over and Gracie a young kid. And he said he would privates with me and get like another 50 year old to roll around with. Hey, go. Nice. Are you trying to miss it? I miss it. I miss the camaraderie and the sweating. And, you know, the whole thing of getting choked up? I guess. That's my favorite move. Get your shout that was it?

Unknown Speaker 13:06
Are you looking for another 10th? planet gym? Possibly? Is there anything near near you know, where you're staying? Where you're living?

Unknown Speaker 13:14
Because I never didn't know gi No, gi is too fast for Uncle Joey. You know, that's just too fast. So I like the ghee and stuff. I like it a little bit more traditional. You know, I do like basic, you know, close guard stuff. I like all that stuff. You know, I know, Baron bolos and all that. But I'm too old. I rather just do the closed guard stuff, you know, pressure passing and all that stuff?

Unknown Speaker 13:40
Yeah, he is definitely an easier route to go the nogi. I can see myself when I get a little bit older, putting the GI on but for now, while I can. I'm all about the nogi. But I know that you went through that surgery because I went through a surgery this past year as well. And you know, I know you and I are very different. You're You're a man and a woman. You're a little bit older. You know, I'm an athlete, you're comedian, but a lot of what you were going through really resonated with me going through the surgery, you didn't want to take the pills, you know, just kind of getting back into life. And even through the pandemic. I gotta tell you, Joey, thank you so much. Because I know it's not just me, you gave a lot, a lot of hope to a lot of people because you were so open and candid about your situation. And I think a lot of people not just on social media, but in life. They're afraid to show that vulnerability. I don't know why, you know, especially with men, you know, you got to be a tough guy. And especially in my sport, the sport is very, you know, don't don't show weakness. But for you to show your weakness and talk about the things that you went through not just physically but emotionally and mentally. You know, you talked about your depression during the pandemic, we all got so depressed, but with your help of being like Hey guys, You got to fucking pull yourself out of it. I think a lot of us just appreciated that because, you know, look at this guy, Joey D is he's a tough motherfucker. But even he gets depressed and he's got to pull himself out of this funk. So thank you for that. And, you know, I'm on the mend now with you hoping to get back in the cage either ended the year or beginning of next year. But, but it's a struggle, right? It's, it's a long process and you can't push it,

Unknown Speaker 15:26
probably because I was talking to my wife the other night, and my wife has become my best friend during this pandemic, I had a decision to make, and that way, I could sit in my fucking office and swept a pandemic, or, you know, I read somewhere that there was gonna be a lot of divorces, because people are gonna get, you know, sick of each other. And that really scared me. So during the pandemic, I became my wife's best friend. We became best friends, I went to her after the surgery, and told her I was struggling mentally. Like, that's something I would never do, like 20 years ago, I would have never done that. You know, but I had to, I had to make my wife, my best friend, during this pandemic for it to work. And I was very candid with her, she was scheduling a trip to visit her family and I had to sit down and explain to her that I like this fucking house on fire. By mistake, you know, when I had the surgery with the anxiety, the fucking pain pills, I didn't know what I was doing. I had no idea, you know, and then PT helped him that I kicked the pain pills away. And I dealt with the pain in my own way with CBD and all that stuff. But that was the number one thing I made it my best friend. And I started thinking about what people were going through. Like, if I have a best friend that lives in me, I'm feeling this way. Could you imagine my single friends in the house by themselves. So I would make sure to reach out to them every day to try to have contact with them. check up on them, no texting, call them, you know, listen to that voice Listen, just to hear, you know, to make sure they weren't cracking like I was cracking. And by doing that I am crack myself. You know, by staying, like talking about it. Because I knew other people were going to go through it. People thought during this pandemic, people change careers, people realize what they really wanted to do. You had so much time this pandemic was bad. I'm sorry for the loss that people had. But for some part, there's a silver lining to this. We got to know ourselves a little better. We learned from this, we forgot who the fuck we were. So I hope that people came out of this with something positive. Yeah, there was a lot of negative. But I tried to pull one thing positive out of this. And that was to help other people during this pandemic. Yeah, that was my most important thing.

Unknown Speaker 18:13
I think you've been doing that for a while now. unintentionally, maybe you know, or maybe maybe you knew that's what you were doing with the church, but specifically the joint. I mean, I got I gotta admit, obviously, I haven't been like a diehard joy fan, because you've been around for a long time. But my boyfriend actually he's been. I mean, he's probably been a fan of yours for 20 years. But you know, the joint is my first experience really with with Joey Diaz on a personal level. And I was not expecting you to be so. So inspirational. It really is fucking it really is an inspirational podcast. Yeah, you talk about all times and it you know, there's crime talk and drug talk and sex talk and fuck this and cock sucker. But at the end of the day, when I listened to your podcast, and I know a lot of other people too, especially the joint, it's a new chapter of Joey Diaz. Someone who has learned a lot of hard learned life lessons, and who is very good at sharing them in a funny funny way. I gotta say, I can't believe how good you are at remembering the details of your life. And and then on top of that, making them comical as well. It's It's awesome. It's a gift. You're very very good at storytelling Joey. And in doing so, you're just inspiring young old alike. So thank you for that and I did I've followed your footsteps still, it's still I'm trying to follow your footsteps by you know, creating something that's comical, but also light hearted and and has some some deep meaning behind it as well.

Unknown Speaker 19:51
Yeah, I want I always want everything to be a little heartfelt. I like when I watch a rocky movie how I feel as goofy As fuckin Sylvester Stallone is in Rocky, I love the rocky movies because he always pulls at your heartstrings. And every fucking movie he does, he says something, a line, something to pull on your heartstrings and i, you can make people laugh, you know, but I wanted to pull on people's heartstrings a little bit, I want them to learn something. It's not just luck in finding games, you know, we all go through it. You know, I was just talking to somebody earlier today, and I feel that when I started the podcast, I wanted to feel like I felt when I was 20 fucking confused. You know, like, I would hate to be 28. And that was a horrible fucking age. You know, you're told to go to college, to pick a fucking major, you're told all this shit. And at the end, eat up prepared for all that. You're not prepared for your fucking 20. So you make mistakes, I made mistakes. I went to prison, I came out. What the fuck do you want me to do hide under a rock, you got to keep going. So you made a mistake, you acknowledge it. You say I'm never gonna make this mistake again, what led to this mistake, and we move on. And that's it. You know, that's what life is all about. I had to punish my daughter two weeks ago, the hardest thing in the world. For one day, I punished him. And we had to like she had the right lines, like, I will not yell at mom anymore. Whatever the fuck happened. And I told them, I said, here's the deal. You're done for the day, you go to your room, no TV, and you write the lines. And then it's never going to get mentioned again. I'm not going to be one of those people that, you know, a year ago, I got the trouble with Rogen over something I said, that happened 23 years ago. And a year and a half later, publisher turned me down because of that. That, to me is bullshit. I didn't yell at the publisher. I wasn't mad. I wasn't upset. But you got to give people second chances. And they have to earn a second chance. And I earned the second chance. So that's what my that's what my message is to people that there is a second chance.

Unknown Speaker 22:31
Yeah, yeah. And I love that, you know, not that I, you know, did any hard time or anything crazy. But I really resonate because I ended up stabbing somebody when I was 17. I did little juvie time very, you know, minimal compared to prison or anything like that. But that was a turning point in my life. And you know, to be a 17 year old kid from a small town who stabbed somebody, and then make it you know, as a UFC fighter fighting in the largest stage in the world. You know, so hearing someone like you say, Hey, I fucked up a long time ago. But look at me, I'm a successful comedian and actor and father to is really cool. And so thank you for that. And I do want to you know, I know you're married. I know you're a family man live in more of like the family life in Jersey. But can we take it back and talk about Joey maybe 1979? You know, I know you did not have a normal upbringing. I did not either. I don't think you know, what is normal. But you, you know, you were an orphan at an early age, which can make it hard to build relationships, whether it's with friends or a significant other, right? And so I kind of want to how, how was how was growing up in 1979 as a kid, you don't have social media, you know, Lucky bastard, you know, cuz I think that sometimes, you know, that's, that's even, it's not so good for our youth to be honest. But, you know, what was that like, as, as a young kid, you know, I wasn't even alive.

Unknown Speaker 24:03
You know, it was if it wasn't for my friends, the way that I know the way friendships were back, then I wouldn't have made it without my friends. You know, I always say this, and it's cliche, but God cooked my mother, but he showed me the gift of friendship. And a lot of people live their life. Like, you know, like, in California, where I came from in LA, for example, I'm not saying nothing bad about LA, I'm just saying that. You have acquaintances. They're acquaintances. They're not riding die. motherfuckers like the ones I had in 1980. When my mother died, she wasn't even in the fucking hole. And people were reaching out to me if I wanted to live with them, you know, and that peak Just something healing wow, look at the people who reached out those same people I'm all friends with today. I talked to them today. So let's get back to that. That's what got me through as a kid. We didn't have social media, but we didn't need it. We were out all the fucking time. You know, I loved I love high school. I loved it. I loved going to school, it was fucking, it was like to be able to before, get the CP boys shit, you know. So I like going to school, it was easy for me pay attention and study and go over your material. You know, like, whatever. They talked about that day at night and remember it and so yes, I was hurting inside. But at the same time, my friends would like I would only feel the pain at night when I went home. That's when they would catch up with me because my friends weren't around. My the people took me in. Because my mother died. I got taken by a family. But I was fucking broken. And I was starting to affect their house. So they asked me to leave. I was mad at them. I didn't belong that. But the second family that took me in. They just lost their mother, March 20. And I've been reading my sister's, her, you know, like, I call her my mom and her sons and my brothers and that one girl, Joan, and she's my sister. I've been reading a post on Facebook, how she sad about the mother. And I called her the day and I go Gentlemen, I just want you to know what you're feeling. This is why I still talk to you guys. 40 years later, because you took away that feeling that you have right now. Yeah.

Unknown Speaker 26:55
That's amazing that you had those people in your life to help you out. You know, I I feel that I my family lives a little absent. And so I fell in with the punk rock crowd and the punk rockers. You know, that may not have been your crowd, you know, growing up, Joey but there are tight knit community, they really are. They're, you know, a lot of punk rockers kind of come from broken homes. And so, you know, they don't like their family. So the friends become family. And that was how that was how it was for me too. And, and so I definitely resonate with you on that. Do you remember at a young age, when the girl switch flipped? When did you start being girl little girl crazy? Was it early on? Or was that later in your teen years?

Unknown Speaker 27:38
seventh grade, seventh grade. I was always exposed to women whose Larry's? Because I tell a story about being six and asking my babysitter for a blow job. You know, and my mother gave me the 20 bucks and all that stuff. But I told my wife Yeah, daddy. Well, I never really told people the story. Truthfully, yes, I did ask for a blow job. Yes. When my mother woke up the next morning, she was half out of it. And she gave me the $20 because I was gonna kill teeth and all this shit. But when I got home at three o'clock, my mother threw a tremendous beating on me and I was punished. Because she's like you never disrespect a woman like that. Ask him for a blowjob. What the fuck were you thinking? I never told that story. It is the first time I'm ever revealing this, that my mother was beaten on me because I was surrounded by a lot of women. My mother had a lot of female friends. So I loved the women I loved when my mom would have card night. They would play cards and I would go back and watch them. I loved watching women. I loved how they would say what kind of blouses that oh my god, I just got it. You're gonna have to lend it to me. And the lady would take the blouse off right there and give it to my mom. On the class. We got a black staring at two women with no fucking shirt job with briars. So I was exposed to women early. I always loved the women. But, but it wasn't till the seventh grade for me that I've kind of fell in love and I was so goofy. I got left back. And I don't even have sex with the girl at that time. What you love I was it was just dry humping. That's it. That's all you need at that age, right? Yeah, we just drive home. I think she loved me suck at one time. And I went fucking apeshit. And then when she dumped me, it broke my heart. And so I got into basketball. Like I said, fuck chicks. And I got into basketball like whatever we had. And then along the line, I started meeting girls again. I think at the eighth grade, I was ready to go.

Unknown Speaker 29:47
Was it always humor and comedy that was your game did you know I can imagine you just make a girl laugh and then just get it in.

Unknown Speaker 29:57
Now it's kind of weird because I was very Catholic, and I was very scared of sex. So like I was a label when it came to sex. Yeah, it sucks. And some people when I was 16 and stuff, but sex came later. And I wasn't. I was too Catholic to really, I was kind of like a prude at the time. It was kind of weird. Like, I didn't want blow jobs. I was like, Girl sex addicts. It's gotta be fucking crazy. Like, I didn't, I didn't look at it that way. It wasn't till I got like, in my 20s that I started exploring all that shit. But early on, I was very conservative, because you were afraid to go to hell, right? Yeah, like I was just afraid of the whole thing. I was. I was scared to ask a girl. I was really scared. It wasn't till I started doing drugs and drinking. That Dang, you have the balls to say anything? Anybody? Oh, yeah.

Unknown Speaker 30:54
Did your Did your mom give you the talk and let you know like, Hey, don't do this till you're married? Did you talk with the with the boys? How'd you learn about sex?

Unknown Speaker 31:06
My mother's blah. They just used to ask me every day he picks up yet. I was eight and the fucking guys at the Bollinger yet No, leave me a lot of made. You know, you learn shit on the street. My mom talked to me. My mom didn't like it. My mom didn't like that I had a girlfriend, right? Whenever she had grow was over there. Go ahead and be open in my room. And one of the last conversations I had about my mom was about me calling home. Like she was like, if you're gonna stay out, you got to call me. And if you're not gonna be home at that time, you're gonna call me at that time. And check in with me. So I never had a curfew. I would just tell her beyond midnight, if you're not going to be on the midnight call. And let me know what time to expect you. And she said to me, because Sunday you're going to be married. And you don't want to be out all night. When you have a wife. You want to call and check in with them and let them know you're okay. So my mom was already prepping me at a young age. How to treat women how to act with them. You know, I had a lot of my mother had a lot of God daughters. Lot of women around me. So I tend I'm better friends with women and what I am what men believe in that. Yeah. Yeah, I have a lot of women friends.

Unknown Speaker 32:39
Yeah, I can see that for sure. I mean, they say if you're raised by a woman, you tend to be a better husband better, how have better female relationships. I'm not too sure. I don't have a relationship with my mother and I tend to have a lot of dude friends. So maybe there's something to it. I don't know. I'm in a sport that's, you know, dominated by men. I'm around guys. I tend to like male things more. But, but yeah, it makes a lot of sense. So when you were in your 20s you said you got more into women you start drinking, you know, probably do a little bit of drugs. And of course that liquid courage makes everybody Don Juan right. Is that right? Is that is my Pilates. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. Little information on me Joey tude. In two days, it's my two year sober birthday. And I couldn't have done anything better for myself and my life is going real real well. And you know, I wasn't doing cocaine or anything crazy. Like I've heard you in your stories, but it really is different when you just you know, have a few drinks before a date or talk to somebody and it just, it's just easier. So. So tell me about Joey in your 20s you know, what was dating like?

Unknown Speaker 33:58
I was a mess. I didn't know what I was doing. My first real real girlfriend came like in 85. She ended up becoming my wife. Until this day, I feel really bad for because my behavior. That's the one I had the kid with. You know, and I feel bad because she got to see a really bad jelly. She didn't get to see the real jelly. And it really bothers me. I reached out there a couple of years ago and apologized and tried to open up that line. And it didn't go anywhere. And I can't blame him. I can't blame him. You know, I was carrying guns. I was doing drugs. I really had no respect for society. I respect that. I wasn't I went to prison that you know, it woke me up a little bit and now When I got out, the relationship was really done. It was really done before I got locked up. She just stuck it out with me. But I wasn't gonna change. I still even though I went to prison, I came out, I still had that edge to me. And I just feel really bad about our relationship. I feel that she didn't see the good mate, you know. So that was done. And this is now but I got a second chance. Yeah, you know, it took this woman got through to me like no other woman. I told her that the day like, I think 20 women tried with me. And they gave up. It took my wife, maybe six years to get through to me. I stopped doing coke. I didn't want her to find me on the floor. You know, she didn't come from that background. So I was like, What if this poor girl finds me on the floor, she'll never recover from that. So I stopped doing Coke, I should have never get married again. I ended up apologizing to her, because I didn't want to lose her. And then she got knocked up. So we did everything by the book. And I'm really happy about that. I fuckin embrace second chances. So, you know what if my first daughter doesn't want to talk to me, You know what? God bless. I wouldn't want to talk to me, knowing who that person used to be. I look at my ex wife now. And I go, You know what? It's all good. I hope God blesses. Because she gave me a life and made me become a comedian. My ex wife drove me to my first open mic. Okay, I didn't have the balls to go down there. she overheard me on the phone, and got a babysitter, and drove me down there. And this was July of 91. We ended up separating in October. I didn't see then what she had done to me. She gave me a life. So yeah, I lost a daughter throughout the whole thing. You know what? I was just going to be poisoned in that girl's world. So it all worked out. She got what she wanted. And I got what I want out of this deal. And we'll see where it goes. I'm not going to stock my ex daughter, my daughter and try to you know, I can't do that. I put it out there for her. And whenever she's ready, if she's ever ready, she could talk to me. If not, I understand. I fucked up. But I got a second chance at this one with mercy. And I'm walking in and out of the park with her.

Unknown Speaker 38:05
Yeah, I'm following along in your podcast. And I gotta tell you, you did an episode during the pandemic, about your first daughter. And it really pulled on my heartstrings, because I don't have a relationship with my mother. She's was doing drugs and just not around and you know, all that stuff. And it really, you know, I really had to ask myself, you know, should I give this woman a second chance. And, you know, I'm not saying anything about myself or about your situation. But I feel like by you just being open about second chances, the stuff that you've been through how you've improved yourself, I think you might be given a lot of hope to people out there who are on the edge, you know, on the fence, have given someone a second chance, myself included, you know, it's definitely got my wheels turning and whatnot. But what you said is, it's got to be for someone who has put the time and the work in right. Second, chances aren't don't come to people who don't work for them. It's second chances are for people who have, you know, looked at their life been like, what am I doing wrong? How can I fix this? And then put the work in? And you've definitely, I mean, it seems like you put the work in and I really do hope that your daughter gives you a second chance. That's something that I hope for you Joey

Unknown Speaker 39:24
Yeah, you know, hopefully she'll get older. You know, she gets married one day as a child. You know, the guy that raised her I don't want her to disrespect to me that he did a great job with it. I didn't see it at the time. But now they had other kids and they built the family for you know, I didn't have that in me at that time. I didn't. That wasn't who I was at that time. I don't want people to think I turned my back on or anything. But I knew that she was in a good place and I was in a bad Place. And all I was going to bring it to her life was going to be drama. And eventually, if I would have stayed in Boulder, we were going to go head to head, somebody was gonna get hurt, and somebody was gonna end up in jail. And I didn't want that, you know, and I'm happy that I saw that. I'm really fucking happy that I saw I saw this. You know, I've always had a rule that I don't ever want you to ask me to leave. Nobody's ever asked me to leave. I should leave on my own. I know when it's time to go home. And that's the most important thing that i i think that's my best gift that I know when it's time to leave. You know, I wasn't going to do much by staying around in Boulder, except create havoc. So I gave it a chance. It didn't work out in my way. But we both got something we both got what we wanted. She got her daughter. And I couldn't poison her with my bullshit. And I got a life that I didn't have in 1991 and 1995. I didn't have a live call. I got married in 2007 2009 is when I got married. 2007 was when I quit the fucking powder.

Unknown Speaker 41:22
Okay, so you were married for about two years. Still doing drugs? No,

Unknown Speaker 41:28
no, no, no, I was clean for two years. Got it? Okay. I want to make sure that I didn't bring that into the marriage. Oh, that's good.

Unknown Speaker 41:36
Yeah, I guess that's what you know, one of my questions was gonna be was, uh, you know, how did your partner your wife now? kind of deal with all you know, crazy Joe we drug Joey. But I guess she didn't have to deal with that. Thank goodness. So there's a big chunk there are, you know, a chunk of your life between your marriages where you were just doing stand up comedy? Probably, you know, peak peak drug Joey right? Yes. When you were in that phase of your life? You know, I know comedy was probably your number one priority. Maybe drugs were usually that's the case with drugs. But uh, you know, where did love Stan relationships? Did you care about that? Were you just so focused on make it in the comedy and acting world.

Unknown Speaker 42:23
After my divorce, I thought that I just wasn't a good husband. I wasn't a good prospect. Still, I said, I'm not gonna inflict myself into somebody's life, I have too much baggage. It's too much. If you want to have a fling after a comedy show. It's not some call come in. But I'm not gonna have another girlfriend. And that was my point of view from like, 91 till I met my wife in 2000. And even then, it took her like, two years, like, I was still like, we're just casually dating. And I moved in. I was still doing drugs, but not in the house. I was going on the road. You know, I was doing him at the Comedy Store. But never at the house. I had a rule. I wouldn't do coke in that fucking house. I didn't want to bring the poison into that house. And guess what? That neither did bring it into the house. One of my cats died, one of my kittens died. And that was one of the reasons why I stopped smoking coke. That night that cat died. There was two kittens in my bathroom. And the one kitten died. And I really liked that guy. The other guy I was crazy about his name was super bad. And my wife opened the door and she goes, you know, PJ died. DJ whose name is DJ, we will call him DJ was just a little kid. And I said, You know what? I said, I'm really sorry. And I laid the bed. And then I said, fuck that. And I got up and I went into that bathroom. And that other cat had a name. Yeah, he was a kid. He was almost dead. I started feeding them oatmeal cookies. And I just made a promise to God. I said, Listen, if you save this cat, I'll never do cocaine again. Now after three days, I wanted the cat to die. I know it. But the cat fucking live and I never did coke again. And the qat live till December of 2019 December 17. Damn, I have a little I have a little picture of them that I put into a friend of mine put into like a gold chain. And that's a silver chain and that's in my car like in the over that mirror of him and I also have a stuffed pillow with his face on it. So I gave up cocaine from a promise that I made to God for a cat. When people go to rehab, people fucking go to jail, people lose their lives quit and I quit coke by making a promise. And I stuck to it. And here we are. About to go 14 years later.

Unknown Speaker 45:19
Congrats, Joey, that's good. I mean, it's, it's, it's a lot easier when you're not surrounded by it, right? I mean, how fucking hard would it have been to go sober in the height, you know, in your 20s or 30s? Really, you know, when you were in that, you know, between marriages, doing comedy on the road, it's a lot easier when you take yourself out of the scenario, right? You're not surrounded by it. When you were in that, you know, between marriages and hustling hard in the comedy scene. Did you ever quote unquote, shit were you ate? Did you ever date in the industry? That's something I asked all the guests, you know, we have a lot of fighters, jujitsu people on here, that kind of stuff. But I also asked the comedians, you know, it seems very easy to date in the industry. But are there are definitely pros and cons, right? What was your experience with that before you're married?

Unknown Speaker 46:15
Like twice? Yeah. And it was, it was simple, because these are the people you hang out with. But then it kind of became hot. And I learned my lesson the second time. And I was like, This can't happen. And guess what, I'm still friends with both those people play. As comedians, we move past it. And we still talk. We never mentioned it again. And that was it. It was just a night, you know, a couple of nights. We moved forward.

Unknown Speaker 46:49
Yeah, that's that's definitely what I have here. You know, it's convenient. You know, it's easy, because you're surrounded by each other. You guys share similar passions and interests. But at the end of the day, it tends to not be the best idea.

Unknown Speaker 47:04
Like, I can't do it, I can't do it. After the second one, I couldn't do it. Because I could see where it was going. Haven't had the first time I did. It was just a one time deal. The second time we did it, it was like every other week for about two months. And then it started like, hey, let's do the show together. And I'm like, I can't do that. I can't stop traveling with you. And you know, so I just stopped doing it. And then I met my wife. How did you meet your wife? She was a waitress at the Comedy Store. Oh, awesome. We weren't we were there together two years. And I never saw. I was always on the road. And all I was there one night she wasn't there. And then we met. We went out for coffee. We were on a couple dates. And then she drove me to Lake Havasu. And we've been together. That was the fourth of July 2000. When she drove me to Lake Havasu. Dang twin rush for a comedy show. Yeah, 21 years ago, 21 years ago.

Unknown Speaker 48:10
That's amazing. What What attracted you to your wife initially? I mean, you know,

Unknown Speaker 48:16
she was from the south. She was Irish. She was very sweet. Like nothing I had been around before. Like she was very, very sweet and very caring. was typical LA Girl. She was very naive. Which I felt bad in a way like she was naive. So I tried to be straight with it. You know, I could have done 1000 things, but I didn't. And at first I kind of pushed her away because she was too nice for me. I'm like, I can't have this nice. Good. I'm a fucking Savage. You know, and She's a nice girl. But it took to me and it took me like, when I was shooting the longest shot was when I realized that this woman loves me. This woman's really fucking proud of me. You know, I would wake up for the longest shot at four. And I had to be in Marina Del Rey like at 530 and I would jump in the shower. When I got out. My clothes would be out. She would put my sweat pants out my T shirt. You know, I got so fat for a while she had to tie my shoelace. Oh, well, that was for 18 You know? So I still remember her walking to the IRS for me to straighten out my tax problems. I still remember her drive me to the doctor get to sleep apnea mask. And the look on her face how much she cared for me, you know? So all these things made me change. Like I'm like, I gotta fucking change with this woman. And then I just something came in my head when Back, she went home. And she saw her brother and his kids. And when she came back, she was a little different. I'm like, you know what I've been? What I'll say is, something has to happen. And this relationship. Obviously, I can't knock her up. Let me propose to her. And I just called her up on the phone. And I just said, I called the father first. I asked her if I can marry her daughter. He's like, I don't know. Like, well, I asked her on the phone, and we got married. In November, the day before Thanksgiving, we got married in the chapel on Wilshire Boulevard, and we had the party and the house up by the Hollywood ball. And I never thought I was going to get married again. But I couldn't let her go, either.

Unknown Speaker 50:50
Why did you say that? You couldn't knock her up? Did you think that was basically impossible or just mean you couldn't knock her up before you got married?

Unknown Speaker 51:03
I didn't think I was gonna ever get married again. Just because I thought I was damaged goods. Yeah. I thought I would poison a girl by you know, getting married to her. But with my wife, I didn't want to lose her. Like, this is the best thing that's ever happened to me. I can't lose this. But I can't have a feeling shitty. either. I gotta make a move. So I proposed to her.

Unknown Speaker 51:30
That's awesome.

Unknown Speaker 51:31
Yeah. And I mean, obviously, the first marriage didn't go the best. So you know, you don't have a good experience. So you think why do it again, but you want it to show her that she meant something? She was worth making your wife? I think that's sweet. Yeah.

Unknown Speaker 51:47
And it's really weird. We don't know. We just never fucking know. You don't know how. Yeah. You know, my first marriage was a fucking joke. I remember being on the plane for the honeymoon. Going out what the fuck that I just do. I'm not ready for this. And this chick was pregnant. And her family was there and the whole fucking thing. And then, you know, I mean, at the fucking wedding, my friends came jersey. And they wanted to watch a football game. So they rented a room and took the TV out of the room. And when What a fucking extension cord back to the game on on that table. So my wife at the time freaked out via fucking friends. Like they're savages. My one the best man couldn't even walk he was so coked up. The priest told them you got to have somebody else disguise to me like to see the rings around his notes. That's the world I come from, you know. So I thought I was damaged goods. But when it came to Terry, my wife now, I had to change. If I want to keep her and then look what happens in 2013, after 13 years of flocking, we got pregnant. nothing ever happened. We have cats. And now I had the chance a second chance again with a child. And I'm scared shitless you know? Like then I fuckin embraced it. And I go, You know what? I was a different person back then. Yeah. And let me not let's not get anything. I loved my first go on. I still do. I still think about it. I still look at the pictures every couple days. I still write my journal about our you know, I'm saying but I know that what her mother could have told her. I know what her mother saw. And I know why. She doesn't talk to me. I wouldn't talk to me. You know, and I learned from it. And here we are today on the pocket on athletes podcast, sex and violence with rebel girl. Violence.

Unknown Speaker 54:03
Well, I mean, I love that story you said about Terry, when he got real big 318 I think you said I recently you know, went through my spine surgery. And my boyfriend who I had only been with, you know, maybe six months up to this point. Just took care of me waited on me hand and foot. I told him numerous times like Hey, I know you didn't sign up for this. I'm giving you an out you know, go be free, you know, do whatever. But um, you know, the pandemic mixed with my my injury. It really showed me his true colors as a partner when someone sticks by your side like that when you're going through shit and you know, I'm no fucking you know, Joy Ride either. You know, I got my alcohol addiction. You know, I'm a fucking professional fighter. We're crazy in the head, you know? And then all the other stuff you know dealing with me for you know, non stop during the pandemic, all that it's a lot and so once Someone just stays by your side no matter what, through thick and thin. It really says something about that person. And I think Terry did that for you when you were, you know, going through the health problems and whatnot and made the right choice. Now you got a beautiful daughter a second chance, very happy for you, Joey.

Unknown Speaker 55:18
You gotta rise up to the occasion, you know, and take and then we moved here. And I could see that my little girls change and like my daughter fucking has changed 360%. And it's a lot of variables, or friends or activities and all that stuff. But you want me to tell you what else it is. I'm home. Yeah, I'm home. When she turns right before the pandemic started. She mentioned to me that she didn't like when I went on the road. Then she mentioned it to me again on Valentine's Day before the pandemic and 2020. And then when the pandemic came, I didn't go anywhere. I was with them all the time. And the night I got surgery was the first night I was away from that. And she fucking cried the whole night. Like when I talked to her after the surgery, she was crying on the phone. You know, when are you coming home? I said tomorrow, and a couple of weeks ago, I went to LA to go to a doctor, the dentist and the signed a weed deal. I got this lead just getting released next week. laughing gas. Yeah. laughing. She created a table that day, when I told her how to leave the next day. She didn't like it. She doesn't like it. So, you know, she's changed a lot because women need security. Yeah, we do. women know they want to be loved. And she knows, she knows him downstairs, she'll come down some nights and bust my balls, some nights and watch TV together. Every night we watch TV together, I sit down and watch those fucking Disney shows, I want to shoot myself. What I know, this is what normal people do.

Unknown Speaker 57:04
It's a lot just to be there. Right? You know, a lot. A lot of times people worry about, you know, what they're doing with their kid or you know, where they're taking them at all that matters is that you're doing something you're there. And, and that and you know, from someone who didn't have someone there, you know, I know that. And that's kind of scarred me a little bit. I don't want to have kids. I don't want to get married. I love my partner. I want to be with Him forever. But, you know, I don't think kids are in the cards for me. And that's okay. But you know, we changed a lot over the years. Who knows? Right? I want to ask you if it's a very generic question, but if you could tell young Joey, you know, in that comedy, that comedy era where you just kind of killing it being a savage. What would you say to him right now? No one now what you know now?

Unknown Speaker 57:53
Nothing. Nothing. He's got to live it out. Hmm. You know, I did what I did. I read a book on money, Bruce. And he talked about living in a hotel with strippers and doing heroin. And I was like, You know what, that's the life I want. There was no secret. You know, in 1992, I was sick and tired of quitting coke. I don't have a second time. This is the last time I do coke. You know, and then three days later, there I am on my nose in the back. So I said fuck it. I'm just gonna do Coke, do comedy. And ride this out until I die get busted or whatever the fuck, I will fuck this. You know, that was my attitude. I'm not gonna keep quitting. I'm not gonna keep lying to myself. This is what I want to do. Today, I pay for that lifestyle, you know, in many ways. Like there was nothing I could have done different at the time. I wish. I wish I would have stopped snorting coke. When I went to prison. I wish that prison would have knocked it out. I mean, I had a bag of coke an hour after I was out of jail. You know, I wish that it scared me that much. But it did. It just made me a little smarter. That made me realize you know what the warning signs? And, and trust me after 89 when I got to jail, I went deep on coke. A couple times. You know, I was trying to quit coke since like 2002. And it took me five years. It took a little fucking cat. You know, it's like that job that you can open and you try it try and you give it to your boyfriend. He can open and then your grandmother walks by and she's just like, what the fuck was that? You know, that's what happened. Yeah, like I saw on the podcast. The switch goes off. We all Have a switch, and it goes off one day. And it keeps, you know, you just switch, you just turn the switch on. And that's it. I started comedy in 91. But I didn't really do comedy till 93. I was just farting around getting on stage, not knowing what I was doing. It took me two years to real is what I was doing, and how to do it and how to go about it. And then I attacked them. It got me to where I am today. But the first two years, we just throw away years and comedy.

Unknown Speaker 1:00:33
Yeah, it's it's a, you know, the no regrets thing is cliche, but I'm a firm believer in it as well. All the fucked up decisions that I've made in my life have made me the person I am today. And I like the person I am today. I don't know if I liked myself a few years ago, or especially not 1020 years ago, you know. But today, because of all those stupid mistakes I made, you know, now I can share my experiences with other people and hopefully inspire some people, you know, and that's why I'm so happy to have you on the podcast because you're a real motherfucker who's not afraid to say, Hey, I fucked up. This is how I dealt with it. Maybe you deal with it a different way. But, you know, one phrase that got me all excited to do the podcast was shame dies when stories are told in safe places. And that's what I love about podcasting and storytelling and people like you, it's that Yeah, like, if you tell a story, and someone resonates with it, it's amazing the power that it can have, can, you know, create people's, you know, podcast like I'm doing or it can help someone maybe get off drugs? Who knows?

Unknown Speaker 1:01:44
Oh, that's why I did it. I did the podcast, not for comedic value. I did more to let people know that it's okay. It's okay, man. We all make fucking mistakes, you know. And the thing about a mistake is that you rectify it and never do it again and figure out why you did it. Why did that happen? And why this can't happen ever again. You know, in 1983 I got into a gambling hole, and I stopped gambling. I never gambled again. I said you know what if it's between cocaine gambling, I rather do coke. And I stuck with that, Eric because you get something out of coke. At least you look at Windows you crawl you look the shit on the carpet. stupid stuff. Yeah. Guess what? About six months ago when I moved to Jersey at night, four nights a week. Now I put a bet in basketball. You know, walking, but guess what? I'm betting 25 bucks. On DraftKings. You know who you got this week is? Who do I like? I like burgers. I like Stephen Thompson a lot. But I think he's not as hungry as he was. Maybe. You know, America is on a spree right now. Yeah. And he lot you know, he lost a life is like Dustin Bori Bori lost in the beginning to fucking die and he made a decision. He's never gonna lose the con ever again. And he knew why he lost he got a chance that Alvarez didn't get a lot of those guys at the beginning. They got quite the lights. They got caught in the lights. There's no way I should have lost a fucking Conor McGregor. He got lost in the lights. I knew that I was gonna be in the second time. He just learned so much at McGregor loss. That he went on a fucking tear. Yeah, I don't know what's gonna happen this week. I haven't seen Greg is training anything like that. I haven't watched the countdown. I like Gilbert. You know I don't know who to like on the call was conduit fight. He's fighting though. The tough kid max Griffin. I love Carlos Condit. Oh, man. I love Carlos. I love Carlos. I've always said it. I think Carlos would have been a good Hitman. Yeah, he looks like it. Yeah. I think Carlos was bucking Hitman for the mafia. I think like, I forget who he fought, but he was like losing time to to finish them off. I've always been a big fan of Carlos. I don't I've never met him. But I know his coach and I would talk to the coach about I would always send them send them has just never met the guy

Unknown Speaker 1:04:42
one of those fighters that you watch and you just know he's willing to die out there. You know, forgot what fight it was. Forget what fight it was. I watched him maybe it was him in cowboy. It was just a back and forth war. And yeah, he's one of my favorites for sure. Joey is always one of my favorites, john pictures. I love it. We've got a girl five we got Jennifer Maya and Jessica I love Jessica. I she was on the show. Oh, yeah, she's a badass. I feel like she's, uh, you know, kind of really lit a fire in her career recently. She's got her health in control, and so I'm putting my money on her. Yeah, I put a little bit here and there ever since I started in the podcast because I was not drafting my bookie. My bookie was sponsoring our podcast for a little while. So I started gambling and I was smart about it, you know, five bucks here. 1045 bucks. It's been

Unknown Speaker 1:05:41
it's been crazy. You watch the game laughing NBA fan points. All I got to do is to score. And I looked at it. I didn't watch the game. I looked at the beginning. And then I started doing other stuff playing the guitar and I was making notes that I'd worked on yahoo. 1130 after I drank my tea, and I go look at the fucking over.

Unknown Speaker 1:06:07
Joey to ask you some last few sex questions because it is a sex podcast. Where is the craziest place you've ever had sex?

Unknown Speaker 1:06:18
I went to a barbecue in 1995 1985 and Boulder. And I was talking to this girl I was kind of dating her roommate. So we all agree it was went to this party together. It was a gym. And there was a party outside. She fucking dared me to fuck her over the wall. Like there was a brick wall that was maybe like I swear to God, three feet. It was just a brick wall. That was weird. And we went over the wall and right in front of the party we went out and people could see us then we walk back like nothing happened people like Jesus Christ.

Unknown Speaker 1:07:07
Also, Joey what's a what's a pet peeve of yours in the bedroom? Some people have said stuff you know like hygiene. on giving lovers. You know they want help, but they don't want to give it that kind of stuff. I'm playing complaining you hear complaints?

Great guy can't wait to go see him perform live in Irvine in a couple or next month. And he said he drew the line at a when a chick asked to paint him blue and wanted him to basically be a smurf that was his line. Have you ever had to draw the lines for a chick?

Unknown Speaker 1:08:06

The truth and they want to hear from your fucking mouth. And if you're not honest with them, then you're going to lose them. One thing about the podcast is I tell you exactly how it went down. Whether it makes me look bad or good. I don't give a fuck. Because I want you to get the full experience.

Unknown Speaker 1:11:14
And people can tell in my experience when you're being honest with them when you're being a lot of people, they especially in MMA, right, they're like Oh, you got to talk shit. You got to do this. You need to do self No, you got to be yourself because if you try to be someone besides yourself, people aren't stupid. They're gonna they're gonna see it and they're gonna tune out and and i agree with you on that one Joey for sure. Honesty is important. Very important. At boo meanie underscore shits. Who's the most famous person you've ever done coke with?

Unknown Speaker 1:11:52
famous person I think. Jesus, I don't know. I tried to get high with Lawrence Taylor told me to go fuck myself. That was like 1985 I think you know what the last. Like when I moved to LA? I tried to keep it under la coke scene for me was very How do you say it was very quiet like by the time I got that way. My cocaine addiction was I was either gonna get high by myself. Or with a girl. That's it? Yeah. I didn't want to get I have parties. Like when I first started I would go to coke parties. It'd be 12 people. 15 people. nine different conversations. As the years went on, it turned on me I got paranoid and stuff. So I would either want to be by myself or with a girl. If a girl told me she was bringing a girl I'd say then don't come Don't bring nobody to the you know, but oh my friend. She feels I don't give a fuck. So I don't think I did coke. really famous people. All right. At pm a podcast favorite song to get fired up to Sabbath bloody Sabbath. Nice. Okay. Black Sabbath at S brandenberg ever end up meeting Mackenzie Dern? No, we have a mutual friend. And he taped the video for me of her saying she was gonna beat me up. She didn't get mad at all. She loved it. You know, when I say she had a great ass, she loved it. And I think I talked her on line after that. I apologize. She's like, don't worry about it. I get it all the time. I get it. I'm like she's got a great fucking go. I wonder what I've asked what's my like after the fight. And I remember I texted Rogen. And he fucking hit me back that night. He's like, God, I couldn't stop laughing by myself. You know, that was and then Monday, like somebody one of the MMA outlets. Joey Diaz said on Facebook that it said what are you thinking? That's what Facebook says? What are you thinking? I'm thinking about? What McKenzie? Dan's asshole smells like after this fight. That's what I'm fucking thinking.

Unknown Speaker 1:14:32
Honesty, Joey that's what we just talked about honesty. That's important. All right at Pat. Kenny Pat Kenny is a personal friend of mine. He said first and foremost, Joey thank you so much for the years of laughter you've given me I really do look at you like an uncle who has the best and most hilarious advice. We agree with him. Did you have a favorite street joke growing up that you can remember?

Unknown Speaker 1:14:55
Yeah, my favorite joke is asking people you blow bubbles as a kid. They'll go, Yeah, he's back in town. He wants your number. Hello.

Unknown Speaker 1:15:09
Second part from Pat. When you do jujitsu, do you ever do it? Hi. And if so, do you notice a difference?

Unknown Speaker 1:15:18
When I did jujitsu, I went to class one night. Like I was trying to do like two classes a week and I would stick to it. But if I would get busy in the daytime, when I first started, it was like, my third week. And I think I ate an edible, and I went to class, and somebody's fucking mounted me. And I almost had a fucking heart attack. I had a tap, listen to me, run outside, take my ethos, and my T shirt off, and then take my dick out and pee from the anxiety. When I get anxiety, I gotta pee. So take my big out on Burbank Boulevard, and go behind the car with my jujitsu, Qian and pee. And I remember I got a little pee in my pants because a call was coming. I raised it up and I walked back in I'm like, I can't roll no more. Like my dad. I'm like, I can't I hurt my back. But I really had pee on my feet. So that's why I kept going to jujitsu to overcome that fear of being, you know, somebody being on top and stuff. But the first time I went, I was like, This is never happening again.

Unknown Speaker 1:16:31
So you already had a little bit of anxiety that kind of claustrophobia when someone's you know, got you mounted. their chest is in your face, and you're just like, you know, can't breathe. You. You already had a little bit of anxiety without the marijuana.

Unknown Speaker 1:16:45
Yeah, man, and then you go in. weed in me. Oh my god, that drill isn't great. Everything was great. Somebody mounted me and then I was like, Holy fuck.

Unknown Speaker 1:17:03
Alright, Joey, that is the last fan question. My last question for you. If you could hear anybody else, comedian, fighter on sex and violence with rebel girl, who would you like to hear on the show?

Unknown Speaker 1:17:15
Go bo tilbyr. We'll try and make it happen. We'll try and get him on here. I'll slap Jules dmws. Like, did you? Yeah, we'll see if he answers. He's a funny guy. Okay, I

Unknown Speaker 1:17:29
would love to show for sure. Joey, where can we find you? Please, please, please tell us about your movie as much as you can tell us watching reruns of the sopranos right now to prep myself. I've already seen it. I'm very excited. But tell us about that. And also where we can find you on all the social media stuffs.

Unknown Speaker 1:17:49
The movies fucking great. I'm really excited. And it's part of the reason why I moved back to New Jersey. Because when I left, I was a fucking piece of shit. And now not that a movie would justify what I did. But it came full circle. And this is why I moved back to Jersey because of that movie. Because when I was shooting that movie, I realized I belong. And it just made me really I don't care if the movie wins an Academy Award or not. I know I did a solid job. You know, whenever I did a movie, I always thought I was going to an argument with somebody that was some this movie I was the perfect fucking after. And I've always said if I'd never act again, I don't give a fuck. Even though I did work on the waist up. I don't give a fuck because I got the work with David Chase. Like I could do a movie about Josie. I'm good. Yeah,

Unknown Speaker 1:18:55
I'm excited. I can't wait to watch it. Saints of Newark. When does it come out? Joy ObiWan Tam, its ways away. I thought it was sooner. Is that gonna be on Netflix?

Unknown Speaker 1:19:07
No, it's gonna be in the movie theater and on HBO plus or whatever. It's all

Unknown Speaker 1:19:12
the theaters are open again. Oh, I'm going in person to watch that one. Yeah, yeah, that's okay. All right. That's cool sense of Newark in October. You know, I know from listening to your podcast that you haven't quite started touring again, unless it's locally, right.

Unknown Speaker 1:19:28
I haven't done anything. No, no, no, I'm going on states. I was much second. And then I got on stage in September. And then I got on stage a couple of times after I did surgery. And I think I pulled the plug in March because I just wasn't working. I wasn't it just wasn't working. So I'm going to give it a breather. And when I'm ready, I'll go back. Okay. And I'm a

Unknown Speaker 1:19:58
full believer in You shouldn't do something if your heart's not in it. I just fought for the UFC. this past November got my ass whooped. I was between a rock and a hard place I had I needed a surgery. Sometimes you got to do things in life that are not ideal. I did it. But I told myself that I would never again, fight just because I needed money. You know, I want to do it because I love it. And I do love it. But I need to wait. And the time is not right right now. So maybe when the time is right, you'll get back into comedy. Maybe you won't, but we will be watching whatever you do, listening to the joint, and hoping the best for you, Joey, thank you so much for what you do for being honest and candid. And showing us that Yeah, people can change and their second chances in life is crazy. And you're gonna change a lot over the years but um, thank you for you do for all you do. Joey and thank you for coming on the show.

Unknown Speaker 1:20:55
You got it. Don't forget July 16. Lack of the ice cream shop.

Unknown Speaker 1:21:00
Yeah. laughing gas. Okay. I will definitely be partaking in that Joey. You know, like I said, I told you, you know, got sober two years ago, that does not include marijuana. Marijuana has, you know, I'm a firm, firm, firm believer that it's just a wonder drug. It's helped me with my mentality so much all the anxiety and the pressures and kicking alcohol to which is crazy. You know, some people might think that that's like jumping off the Hindenburg onto the Titanic, but it's really not. It's really, really not, you know, but to each their own. So thank you, Joey. I'll be showing all you're putting all your links in the show notes. You guys can catch Joey. He's everywhere. He's famous. He's one of our most famous guests.

Unknown Speaker 1:23:11
that's a wrap on episode 58. With the man of the myth, the comedic legend, Joey Coco de is mad guy. guys. Thank you so much for tuning into this episode. I told you guys I think about Well, a few episodes ago, six episodes ago, for the one year anniversary episode. I had a really, really big guests planned. That was Joey but he ended up having to shoot the movie that is coming out in October. So it didn't pan out. But like everything in life, sometimes things turn out even better than you expected. And that's exactly what happened today. Joey is a man of his word. He couldn't come on for the one year anniversary. But he made it happen just six episodes later. And I'm really really excited because like you heard in the in the interview, he was a big inspiration for me to start this podcast. He is a great example of how you can fuck up in your life and it's not the end of the world. You can turn things around. He's a firm believer in second chances and making something out of yourself even if things don't go as planned. So I hope you guys enjoyed that episode. I love you so much.
