Do you get in it? No.

On it? No.

Off it? No.

What do you do with Uber?

- [man] You grab it.

- [man] You get one.

No. No.

[woman] You just take it.

You take it! You take Uber!


Because there's no money!

It's, like, free.

I don't even know how it works.

Do we even pay for that?


I think it's just a free thing,

Don't ever say,

"I'm going to tell you a joke now."

Two left feet, left-handed compliment.

"What are we having for dinner?"



You go to a party, nobody's there.

"Where did everybody go?" "They left."



That was it.

That was my first joke.



And it was a pretty good joke,

and uh they passed me on the audition,

and I started coming here

and I see a lot of beautiful

young people here tonight,

enjoying your life of uh...
