LOL! Thanks, I never heard of this guy. I will watch more of his bits.

He has been around for a while - a friend recommended "F is for Family", an animated show wherein he voices the lead character, I remembered him from "Breaking Bad", he was pretty memorable in that as one of Saul Goodman's go-fers, and I recently watched a Netflix movie of his standup.

The crowd in that clip seems comatose or uncomfortable or PC or something. Makes me wonder if they knew who they were there to see.

Thanks. I'm really good w/ faces. Did Burr play the guy who helped Walt's wife buy the car wash playing a phony inspector and duping the owner?

You are correct - he also helped load the barrels full of cash into the van. Bill Burr played Kuby, and another stand up comedian, Lavell Crawford played Huell.

For a number of reasons, this is one my favorite scenes from Breaking Bad.

Now see, I am learning a lot. I didn't know Huell was a standup either. I bet Odenkirk got these fellow standup's the gig. I was late to Breaking Bad. So many series went past me when I was working like an asshole and didn't have time for TV. But, I'm pretty caught up now. Better Call Saul is a rarity, a spinoff that is up to the quality of the original. I read a great letter from Anthony Hopkins to Bryan Cranston w/ high praise for the acting and the show. My bride and I went a couple days ago to see Infiltrator starring Cranston. Good flick worth seeing. Not great, but good. Cranston has come a long way since Malcolm in the Middle. I watched that w/ my kids when I could. I tried to find time to watch shows w/ my kids that I liked as well. There were many that made me puke.

Bob Odenkirk wrote Chris Farley's Matt Foley, motivational speaker sketch - you know, the one where he was livin' in a van down by the river, eatin' government cheese.

Lavell Crawford was on Last Comic Standing - he was pretty funny. His Netflix show is about half funny, but then he ran out of material and I shut it off.

I did not know that. You are on fire! I can see him writing that character. You can tell Foley was liked. Many of his SNL colleagues attended his funeral here in Madison. David Spade was a notable absence.
