TOM DREESEN: Comedy Legend - Late Night Playset #476

Cars & Comedy in the Late Night Playset

Tuesday July 12, 2022 - Guest: Tom Dreesen   Tonight Cars and Comedy races in with a doozy of a guest! Comedy legend Tom Dreesen joins the Late Night Playset to talk about, well, everything!  We are excited to announce our first Cars and Comedy LIVE from the Marconi Automotive Museum and it’s on September 3rd!  J decides to table everything else to Thursday to get our guest in here immediately, resulting in a cavalcade of conversation.  But before all that, Tom and Nicole bond over MS, and Tom speaks about his sister who also had the condition.  Tom talks about the fundraisers he held for his her and heart-fully let Nicole know how much she inspires him.  A must see moment in the show that will warm the hearts of all who see it.  Tom expertly talks about his journey with the Jaycees leading to meeting Tim Reid (WKRP in Cincinnati) and forming the first, and last, black and white comedy duo.  Next comes the Comedy Store and the Tonight Show, and how that first appearance with Johnny changed Tom’s life forever.  J and Tom go deep on the philosophy of comedy and how it relates to personal development, envisioning one's  goals and being a service to humanity.  Letterman and Sinatra stories are next and they came "Fast and Furious."  Then somehow J tells Tom the Letterman microphone story and Tom explains why he thinks Dave would've done the same thing... Watch it to believe it folks!   Please don’t forget to subscribe, like, share, and leave positive comments for the show.  THANK YOU for watching! 🎙❤️✨   Inside Jokes: Let’s build Dreesen a studio! We finally have a date to plug, it’s like being color blind up here, yes-thanks Tom, We got the good microphones from telefunken here, Nicole’s snort laughs are healing, I was a Jaycee too! 26 miles with Smokey Robinson, A Day for Darlene, a champion is someone who does things at their best when they are at their worst, the jaycees attack the problems in the community, cheap plug, we need better race relations (true then and now), you ever been on Johnny Carson? Mitzi turned comedy into an assembly line, seize the moment, negative thoughts are dirt positive thoughts are flowers, you’re a funny guy Tom Dreesen,  Laughter is a psychological deterrent, comedians are doctors for the soul. Didn’t I tell you thats a better story?! Next time your car breaks down call Mickey Mantle, Harold come quick it’s Regis! I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be, man is Bill Burr good, what does he use for adjectives?
