Which do you prefer, the old Times Square or the new Times Square?
I don’t know what that means — I mean, I know what you mean, but I haven’t been here that long. You mean when there were whores, right? I do remember when I visited — I’m trying to remember when that was— there used to be an arcade in Times Square. I remember that was fun.
Times Square, it’s a spectacle. You can get lied to about a comedy show. The guys trying to get you into a comedy show, they always say, “Yeah, it’s a Comedy Central taping. Tonight! At the Broadway Comedy Club.” And sometimes I call them on it and I say, “Oh for real, they’re taping? What’s the taping?”
“A Comedy Central Presents.”
“Oh, for real, somebody’s taping their half-hour special in a basement comedy club? That sounds legitimate. Sign me up.”
