who could build things and blow things up.

I was known

as the instigator and a facilitator.

You know, if you had an idea for something,

I would go out and figure out how to build it.

You know, the fact that he was able

to get his parents' RV and hook up a generator

and then set up speakers and play rock'n'roll

to the Spartanaires

as they were practising their routines.

That just was like classic Kevin.

Because of this ranch,

I was able to get what's called

a hardship driver's licence when I was 14

without even like taking any lessons.

I just thought the two of them were hilarious.

It was like a new breed of person.

They did all this weird stuff,

and I guess we just started talking

about music all the time.

We wanted to be rock stars,

thinking like this was gonna be our way

to break out of suburbia.

Bill was like, "Let's go look

at these guitars downtown. "

I'd never driven downtown before,

I was like, "OK, I guess I'm game for this,

if you guys are gonna navigate the way. "

He goes,

"Did you see the paper today?"

He goes, "A comedy workshop has opened up

and they have open mic. "

"Open mic stand-up?" "Yes."

Oh, my God. Finally.

So we drove to downtown.

On our way back we passed this place

called the Comedy Workshop in Montrose.

Bill and Dwight were like,

"That's that place we've been reading about."

We couldn't believe it,

that something like this

had happened in our own backyard.

And we realised that now we had

a real chance. We could actually be comics.

Most entertainers have to deal with the fact,

"I've got to get to LA or Hollywood,

"I got to take acting lessons,

I got to get head shots. "

What's our problem?

We can't go out on school nights.

I remember my father sitting me down

and going, "Look, you're not going down
