I spoke with CHRIS D’ELIA about his COMEDY CENTRAL Special that is premiering Friday, February 4, about STANKOWSKI from GLORY DAZE and so much more. What a pleasure it was to speak with him and honestly, I didn’t know what to expect but he was incredible. I love his stand-up and STANKOWSKI, so I figured it was a win, win all the way and what he gave me was so much more. We spoke about pretty much everything, his endearing charm, charisma, and astonishing good looks and his ability to rock a side ponytail. Most importantly, I got to poke around in the mind of a gifted comedian and find out what makes him tick and he was kind enough to share with me so I am able to share it all with you. Chris is very bright and intuitive and really understands what works from experience and just having the raw integrity to go for something that he believes in. I could listen to him talk forever. He was of course, incredibly clever and hilarious. I really loved hearing about how it all began for him and what he goes through as an actor and comedian. I hope Chris finds his way to Boston sometime in the near future because we are all being deprived of seeing such a compelling and flexible comic in the flesh. Don’t we suffer enough having to deal with this crap weather, at least give us something to look forward to. Chris was so sweet so don’t miss his special and talk about GLORY DAZE frequently so it can celebrate a second season.
My interview with Chris was amusing before it even began. I was securing a quiet spot away from my chinchillas because they like to bark when they get excited. I figured Chris’ voice would whip them into a tizzy. When I mentioned that to Chris he told me that everyone in Los Angeles has chinchillas and they take them out to Starbucks in bags. I was surprised that people got to take them out because not too many people in my area have even heard of a chinchilla. Just as I was about to buy a one way ticket to California, because I would like to live in a chinchilla world, I realized that he thought I was talking about Chihuahuas. When I mentioned one pound, fluffy rodents, we both laughed. I brought that up because he refers to me as a chinchilla in the interview and that is the reason why. He was making fun of our earlier conversation and answering to my gazelle reference by incorporating a chinchilla into the mix. I hope that clears things up for you but probably not because yes, it got a little weird but not “Your Turn” weird, so I was totally into it. If you don’t know what that means then you should be ashamed of yourself but you can make it all better by watching Chris’ special on COMEDY CENTRAL on February 4th at 11 PM EST on COMEDY CENTRAL.
