That was new to me, and I thank you for it. 

Here's the next video of the set, which concludes his "There Will Be Blood" anecdote:

So what's the deal is he just some dude who tells mildly funny stories about his encounters with famous people?

And regular people pay to see him?

I guess his "Mr. Show" alumni cred doesn't make up for anything lacking, eh?

they're both on youtube.
I thought Tom Cruise's "Hi, I'm Tom" was pretty killer.

He's one the best working standups alive.

He's a hero.

He's also headlining the Austin Sketch Fest (a festival I produce) this year!

...and he does not want us to link to the bootlegged video of his performance as he will be releasing an authorized version next month.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.
