Sevan Matossian (00:03):

Bam we’re live. I forgot to put myself on. I had to go live button and then didn’t put myself up. No goo in the hair this morning, I looked in the mirror and said, damn you look good without goo will Sev have his headphones turned on this morning? Oh, Nope. I don’t. Thank you. You now officially work for the show. Headphones are on great question. Uh, I’m guessing today’s pee break is at one 14 into the show. That is when I will have to pee. Thank you, man. You’re really laying out the outline for the, uh, show guys. Listen, I had a friend, I have a friend. He was making $250,000 a year, setting tables at hotels in the city. That’s what he’s done. He’s done it for like 20 years. It’s him, bunch of Filipino dudes, gay Filipino dudes and hardworking Mexicans. And they go from all the hotels in the city, the big, big baller hotels, Omni St.

Sevan Matossian (00:57):

Regis, Ritz, Carlton, you know, et cetera, four seasons. And they set tables there. I’m oversimplifying it. They have a fancy name like banquet, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And my friend’s been there like two 20 years working there. And, uh, and all the dudes who do his job are hustlers. You know what I mean? And a lot of, a lot of ’em are dudes who send their money back to their home countries, right? When, when you tax rich people, they stop going to those hotels and, and the people he serves on the regular people like Dave Chappelle, Obama, Al gore, people like that. And basically what he does is those people will have a meeting. They’ll go up to the, you know, you know, 30th floor of the St. Regis in San Francisco, and they’ll have a, a room set up with coffee. The coffee pots are like $500 a pot for a pot of coffee.

Sevan Matossian (01:41):

They’ll get four pots of coffee for 2000 bucks. My friend will, uh, make, you know, 10% of that, uh, $200 in, you know, in like 45 minutes, just setting it, pouring to coffee and then moving on to the next, uh, to the next event. And he does that. And it’s a tough job. Um, you know, BA basically no one can afford to live in the city. So you gotta travel in an hour and a half. You gotta be there at four in the morning and you, you keep weird hours, but, but it makes great money, right? And, and in the beginning you don’t make that kind of money doing that job, but you’re there to 20 years than you do recently. He got this cool thing. He’s been with the Marriot for 25 years or something. And so he got this thing that basically he can stay at any Marriot in the world for free, as long as he keeps his job there. When you tax rich people, good morning, Justin, when you tax rich people that money, those people stop spending that money in those hotels.

Sevan Matossian (02:33):

And you give it to whoever, whoever Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, um, Donald Trump, Joe Biden, you pay their wages. Do you trust me to spend that money? Or do you wanna give it to those guys to spend the money? That’s that’s all I’m asking you. That’s all. That’s all. That’s all I’m asking you. Who, who do you want to spend your money? When I lost my job, I got rid of my, any, my gardener and I stopped going to the Mexican restaurant. It, when you take from rich people, they, they just stop spending it on you. When I mean you, I mean, anyone makes a million dollars or less a year. Hi, good morning, Jesse. I know you don’t do religion or politics. I had to get it outta the way early.

Justin Nunly (03:12):

It doesn’t matter to me. I don’t really talk about it. It’s so divisive. You know,

Sevan Matossian (03:16):

I hear you.

Justin Nunly (03:16):

Like, I, I tell you people, people get like I have, now I do religion and politics. Right? I have my own opinions, right? Yes, yes. But I tell you, once you start letting those feelings be known, boy, I tell you people, people will come at you. Like I have never judged anybody over their religion or their politics know. I’m like, yeah, everybody’s different. You know, but boy, I tell you what a lot of people do.

Sevan Matossian (03:41):

Okay. Let me ask you this.

Justin Nunly (03:42):

Okay.

Sevan Matossian (03:44):

What if I told you uhoh, we’re really good, by the way. Um, before we start, there have been some fucking amazing one liners in the world and, and, but fuck the one liners, the delivery of one liners in the timing is everything. There was a lady back when I was a, how old are you? Justin?

Justin Nunly (04:01):

38.

Sevan Matossian (04:02):

Okay. There was a lady, I think she’s a little before your time, she had a Wendy’s commercial and she would say, where’s the beef. And I’m telling you, you, people do not know what viral is. If you were not around, when this lady was around, you don’t know shit about viral. So, and she didn’t have any social media, she would come on and she would say wears the beef. And I’m telling you everyone on the planet set. Uh Justin’s uh, uh, he he’s the guy, man. He is the guy.

Justin Nunly (04:33):

Thank you. Thank you.

Sevan Matossian (04:35):

And, uh, I don’t know shit about TikTok. I’m an Instagram guy, but today we’re going to learn about comedy, uh, creativity, uh, the, uh, what it’s like to serve in the us military and, um, and, and a guy who’s just, uh, killing it. Um, I, I, in my opinion, making the world a better place, 20 seconds at a time.

Justin Nunly (04:53):

Thank you. Thank you.

Sevan Matossian (04:54):

I wish go ahead.

Justin Nunly (04:56):

No, it means a lot coming from you. Thank you very much. I appreciate the compliments.

Sevan Matossian (05:00):

A and, uh, I, I wish my wife understood that I make her her feel better 20 seconds at a time, but for some reason she’s greedy. She’s greedy. She, she wants more, she wants 40 seconds and shit.

Justin Nunly (05:10):

Mine’s only getting 20 seconds.

Sevan Matossian (05:11):

So yeah, 20 seconds, man.

Justin Nunly (05:13):

Enjoy it. Enjoy it while it lasts, cuz it ain’t gonna last long,

Sevan Matossian (05:16):

Honey, I give TikTok 16 seconds and the fucking place goes crazy. I have 3 million followers. I give you 32 seconds and you’re fucking complaining. Can the fuck outta

Justin Nunly (05:24):

Here? Exactly. You gotta be efficient. You know

Sevan Matossian (05:30):

My, my, my let’s say, I let’s say I was a, a, a Nazi. Let’s say I was a socialist. Right? Okay. I, I belonged to Hitler socialist, uh, Nazi party. And I really liked him and I thought everything was really cool. And I thought it was a betterment thing for the world and the environment. And, you know, Hitler was really against cancer and into organic foods and all that. But that one part where they round up the Jews and they take ’em the train to that place. And then they euthanize them. I just don’t like that one little part. And, and, and I feel like that’s the problem that I feel like we were, and, and maybe I’m just a crazy extremist, but I don’t think so. Cuz I used to be a hardcore Democrat. I was raised a hardcore Democrat, but I just feel like

Sevan Matossian (06:10):

There’s some things be I, I saw they did it to smokers when I was a kid. Right. They started treating smokers really, really bad. No one wants to smoke cigarettes. And I agree that like you shouldn’t be able to smoke on the airplane, but there were some of these rules that were getting kind of crazy. And I, I, when I just see this, I just see some of the rules. I’m just like, I, I have to judge you. I have to be like, Hey, I can’t have you. I can’t have that around my kids. I, if I was 20 and I was just slaying pussy and I didn’t have kids, I wouldn’t care. I’d live in a mobile home park and just party. Right. But I’m not I’m fitty and like I’m trying to raise my kids to be good human beings.

Justin Nunly (06:50):

You said just slay and pussy and, and doing Coke, baby.

Sevan Matossian (06:54):

I don’t know about the Coke. Yeah. I’d prob I’m more of an, I was more of an MDMA guy

Justin Nunly (06:58):

There, you, there you go.

Sevan Matossian (07:00):

Um, but, uh, but that’s why, that’s why I want to be like you. I, I, I, I really come from that tree hugging ideology. I really wanna love everyone. I, I do believe that, um, uh, love conquers all, you know, I used to let homeless people stay at my house through college and there was a, uh, there was a dude, uh, uh, who had a hate tattooed here. And he had a SWAs stick on his face and he was hardcore skinhead. And uh, and then I had a Rastafari dude and they both lived in my backyard together in a tent. And, and they would be in my house every morning, like cooking or at night cooking. And because it was shelter and food, it transcended their, their, the, the skinheads, you know, ridiculing this ideology. They were homies. I haven’t seen ’em sleeping on the couch together, you know, opposite directions in the house on cold nights. And it’s like, I get it. I

Justin Nunly (07:48):

Think if you, if you get one place to sleep, you, you forget about everything that you really think bothers you.

Sevan Matossian (07:54):

Yeah. Right, right. Yeah. Things when you get hungry things and, and things get, and it’s mean things change

Justin Nunly (08:04):

100%,

Sevan Matossian (08:05):

Man. I wish one of my guys was here on the back end today. What, what man, you’re li you’re living a, such a fun life right now.

Justin Nunly (08:12):

It’s been insane since September. So I, um,

Sevan Matossian (08:17):

Yeah. Yeah. Let’s go back a little bit. Yeah. Yeah. Let’s paint the picture cuz I don’t know. Shit. I, I listened on that podcast with that lady, uh, a few months ago. That was hard to watch by the way. I would need to ask you about that.

Justin Nunly (08:29):

Which one?

Sevan Matossian (08:30):

Um, she, she laughs a lot. She’s from TikTok. Jenny and friends.

Justin Nunly (08:34):

Oh Jenny and friends. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (08:36):

Did you know her before you went on there?

Justin Nunly (08:37):

No, I never, I know. I didn’t know her. Like we, we’ve got to know each other since then in uh,

Sevan Matossian (08:43):

You’re a good dude.

Justin Nunly (08:44):

She’s a very nice, very nice

Sevan Matossian (08:45):

Lady. Very nice lady. Yep. But you’re a good dude.

Justin Nunly (08:48):

Thank you.

Sevan Matossian (08:50):

You are, you did an hour and 40 minutes of that. You’re a good dude.

Justin Nunly (08:56):

Yeah, no it’s yeah. So back in September I had, I’ve

Sevan Matossian (09:01):

Had of 20, 21 21.

Justin Nunly (09:03):

Yes, sir. Okay. Um, I had a TikTok account that was, um, at a respectful 600,000 followers. Right. Crazy. And I’d, and I’d had a lot of community guide. Um, I tell jokes, I’m a, I’m a comic man, you know, and comedy can be subjective. And in this world of cancel culture, you know what that translate to, you know? Yes.

Sevan Matossian (09:25):

I lost my job.

Justin Nunly (09:26):

Right. Um, so I wound up losing my account in September. Um, I think it was like September the second.

Sevan Matossian (09:34):

Can I, my long, had you been on TikTok to get 600,000?

Justin Nunly (09:38):

About a year and a half.

Sevan Matossian (09:39):

Okay. So,

Justin Nunly (09:40):

Okay. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (09:41):

This 2019. Yeah.

Justin Nunly (09:42):

Yeah. That’s where the story gets wild

Sevan Matossian (09:46):

In 2019.

Justin Nunly (09:47):

Well, yeah. Uh, so right around the end of 2019, and then my account got permanently banned and except around September the second of 21. And um, I had, I had just, I had just found a little format that worked right. Um, I had only done like two videos, but both videos just went right. Is it

Sevan Matossian (10:10):

This format that we’re seeing now on Instagram?

Justin Nunly (10:12):

Yeah. Yeah. It was, it was the very early versions of it. And um, my account got permanently banned and instead of me sitting around bitching and whining and moaning about it, I said, cool, let’s roll with it. So I got on my backup account, um, which, which I had gave to my, I had, I had set up and I’d made for my wife and I had tagged her in a bunch of videos and she had like 5,000 followers. So I jumped on, it, changed the username and started posting videos. 30 days later, 30 days later, I went from 5,000, 222 followers to over 3,000,030 days,

Sevan Matossian (10:50):

30,000 to 3,000,030 days.

Justin Nunly (10:53):

No, uh, 5,005,000. Yeah. 3 million.

Sevan Matossian (10:58):

Give me one second here. Gimme one second. Let, let let’s let’s uh, let me, let me, for those of you who don’t know, here we go. Can you guys hear that? No, you cannot. Ah, I guess you need a,

Justin Nunly (11:12):

You gotta, you gotta scroll down the best one. The one that I have viral right now on Instagram.

Sevan Matossian (11:16):

Okay. Let’s go.

Justin Nunly (11:17):

Is the, uh, scroll down, uh, right the there

Sevan Matossian (11:22):

This one with the, with the,

Justin Nunly (11:23):

Yeah, that’s see it.

Sevan Matossian (11:25):

Yeah. This one. I, I, I played on my podcast a couple days ago. Yeah.

Speaker 3 (11:32):

Oh, it was a man’s neck. Jesus, fix it. Listen. Did you know that new Zealand’s badminton team named themselves the ball like Cox, but received so many complaints. They had to change the name. Now you do. Oh, it was a mans.

Sevan Matossian (11:55):

By the way, ladies, gentlemen CA is spelled C a U L Khaw CA

Justin Nunly (12:01):

The black

Sevan Matossian (12:02):

CAS, the black CA I have black flooring in my, um, in my, uh, garage. And when we put it in, I had to seal it with Blackhawk. And my kids loved saying that black CA black cock, they didn’t even know

Justin Nunly (12:15):

Car.

Sevan Matossian (12:15):

Are you gonna put more black CA in? I said, of course, always

Justin Nunly (12:18):

Again. I hear that Blackhawk can feel bigger, bigger

Sevan Matossian (12:20):

Gaps. Yes. It says that on the, on the side, racist, racist. Um, oh, so tell me what you got a, a band for? What, what could you thought TikTok was like just a, uh, you could do anything on that for sure.

Justin Nunly (12:36):

Oh, hell no. It’s the most censored out there is.

Sevan Matossian (12:39):

Oh, there is.

Justin Nunly (12:40):

Yeah. 100%. Um, it it’s, uh, you know, I have to be a little bit more careful on TikTok than everywhere else, because it is so censored and there’s so many like younger users on it that they don’t, they don’t understand comedy. I did a video the other day, uh, like two days ago, um, with a chick that, that she was wearing a, a, a shirt that was like unbuttoned and she was holding it halfway open and she wasn’t wearing anything underneath the shirt. And she was like, do you know what I need right now? And I popped in and said a bra.

Sevan Matossian (13:13):

Did you know? That’s a great one. I played that yesterday on my show. I played that yesterday

Justin Nunly (13:17):

On my dude I’ve took so much heat on TikTok about, I mean, it does it violating community guidelines.

Speaker 4 (13:22):

You know what I need right now,

Justin Nunly (13:23):

A bra listen, did you know, there’s a thousand people living in the

Sevan Matossian (13:27):

Tunnels. I think I started the show last night with that,

Justin Nunly (13:30):

Right?

Sevan Matossian (13:30):

No, I had nothing to do with you. It was a show covering some sports shit. And I’m like, well, let right here and look at our guest. Who’s coming on tomorrow. I love it. I love it. So you got in trouble for that one?

Justin Nunly (13:38):

No, I didn’t get in trouble, but it’s like, you know, that, that goes to show that people like the younger generation, like, like things have been so censored for them. And, and they’ve been told that everything is bad, right. That, that they’re offended by that. And it’s a, it’s a, it’s a punchline at, to the day. It’s a punchline. I don’t, I don’t give a shit. If that chick where’s a bra, hell I would personally, you know, prefer her not to. Right. You know what I’m saying? But it’s a, it’s a chance at a punchline, a chance at making somebody that may be having a shitty day laugh. Yes. You know, somebody that may be going through the thick of it to have a little bit better of a day in 10 seconds, you know what I’m saying? Um, and, and people don’t understand it. They don’t get it, man. You know, they, they think,

Sevan Matossian (14:20):

What did they think was wrong with it that you were like, how dare you tell a woman to put a bra on? Exactly. They’re so restrictive. Oh shit. Really? Yeah. That’s just woke shit.

Justin Nunly (14:28):

Yeah. It’s ridiculous. That’s and that’s exactly why I lost my first accounts because like, nothing was, nothing was bad. And, and it is not that hard to have to sit and watch a comic tell jokes, and you can look at a joke and if a joke truly offends you, here’s what you do with the joke. Did that comic let’s watch it again, was their intent to make people laugh and make people happy or was their intent to be hateful. It’s not hard to figure it out. It’s really not hard to figure out between the two. And, um, you know, and I hate to say, well, this younger generation, cause that makes me sound old as old as dirt. But, um, I mean it really, maybe

Sevan Matossian (15:05):

It’s just a few of them. I think it’s just a few of them.

Justin Nunly (15:08):

Well, it’s a few that comes in groves and they all, they all weigh and in same spot.

Sevan Matossian (15:13):

It’s really amazing. Do you know, how do you know they’re gonna be so miserable when they get older? If they can’t laugh at themselves

Justin Nunly (15:21):

100%. Absolutely. I’ve said this before. Um, that generation and the not just really that generation, but people like that tend to be the most unhappy people you will ever meet in your, because they don’t know how to laugh at everyday things, you know? Yeah. Like if somebody roast on me and jokes on me, I laugh. I think it’s funny. I could care less, you know? And if I don’t think it’s funny and I get offended by it. So fucking what, who cares? You know, like it’s,

Sevan Matossian (15:48):

What did you get me fun of as a kid that you like you that now is an asset? Do you have any, anything?

Justin Nunly (15:54):

No, I, no. My personality probably, you know, um, like I used to be the class clown. I was the annoying kid in class and hell. Maybe I still am. I don’t know. Um, but like I would always disrupt shit just to try to get a laugh outta somebody at the wrong time. And as I got older, I learned how to do it. I learned that there was time to the time not to, and I learned, you know, a little bit of the comedic timing and, uh, and it worked out for me. But yeah, like I, a lot of people could not stand me in school.

Sevan Matossian (16:24):

And, and you didn’t get made fun of for anything like you, you like your name or you had a big nose or your Dick was too big for your legs or there was no, that,

Justin Nunly (16:32):

That was definitely not the issue

Sevan Matossian (16:34):

We’re not teased

Justin Nunly (16:35):

For. No, no, I, no, I can’t really think of a time when I, I would really get made fun of or anything, you know? Um, it was, uh, it was basically like, you know, oh, it’s the annoying guy, you know.

Sevan Matossian (16:48):

Why did you are your active duty?

Justin Nunly (16:51):

Yes, sir.

Sevan Matossian (16:52):

Um, why did you, um, in your, your 17 years?

Justin Nunly (16:55):

Yes, sir.

Sevan Matossian (16:57):

Thank you by the way.

Justin Nunly (16:58):

Absolutely. Thank

Sevan Matossian (16:59):

You. Yeah. Yeah. It’s, it’s hardcore. If you’re, if you’re 38, that means you’ve been in you. I mean

Justin Nunly (17:06):

Last 21.

Sevan Matossian (17:06):

Yep. Yeah. When you’re a kid, um, uh, what, what, uh, what branch are you in?

Justin Nunly (17:12):

I’m in the air force.

Sevan Matossian (17:13):

Oh, no shit. Usually the guy who runs my back in the air force.

Justin Nunly (17:17):

Yep.

Sevan Matossian (17:17):

He’s based outta Iowa. Okay. Caleb, Caleb, where are you should be on the show. Maybe he’ll pop in. And, and, and why did you, um, why did, is it called enlist sign up? Yes, sir.

Justin Nunly (17:28):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (17:29):

Enlist. Why did you do that? Um,

Justin Nunly (17:31):

I don’t know. I guess, to serve something greater than myself, you know, I mean, I know that’s kind of a cliche answer, but you know, I’m from a little small town in north Alabama, and I could already see the riding on the wall, but if I didn’t do something that I was gonna be stuck there for the rest of my life, and that’s just not what I wanted. Some people want to grow up and live in small town America, and there’s nothing wrong with that at all. Right. I didn’t want to, you know, be born, grow up and live my adulthood and die and never see the world. And, you know, I, the best op opportunity for that was, was the military. So, and sure enough, 17 years in, I’ve been around the world twice and seen just about all 50 states and met some of the coolest dudes you’ve ever met in your life and chicks, you know, I mean, really? I have.

Sevan Matossian (18:24):

And so you’re stoked on the decision.

Justin Nunly (18:26):

Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it’s best decision I made.

Sevan Matossian (18:30):

And, and now you’re in your three years from getting out.

Justin Nunly (18:32):

Yes, sir.

Sevan Matossian (18:33):

Holy cow. You must be like, holy shit. I did it

Justin Nunly (18:37):

Right. Well, I, I never celebrate talk, cross finish line. I’ve seen too many videos of people celebrate early and lose race.

Sevan Matossian (18:43):

Yeah, yeah. Crazy. Um, any chance you could be deployed?

Justin Nunly (18:49):

There’s always that chance where I’m at right now. Probably not, not unless I not, unless I volunteer or anything, um, those opportunities don’t come up a whole lot with what I’m doing right now, but, um, there’s always a possibility if I do.

Sevan Matossian (19:03):

I do, what, what do you do there? Are you allowed to say,

Justin Nunly (19:06):

Um, I build bombs for a living with these. I still got, ’em all still got

Sevan Matossian (19:12):

’em all. Yeah. With these, you do it with these, with your hands. Yeah.

Justin Nunly (19:15):

Well, well, I mean, when, like I say, build bombs, I mean, they’re already like a big giant shell and we just add the components to make ’em blow up.

Sevan Matossian (19:24):

Wow. And then, and then, um, and then, and what happens after you build them?

Justin Nunly (19:28):

We deliver ’em out to the flight line and, um, the, uh, greasy scummy loaders put ’em on the aircraft.

Sevan Matossian (19:35):

Wow. Wow.

Justin Nunly (19:36):

They are rival, uh, career fields. So they’re good people though.

Sevan Matossian (19:40):

And, and, um, do you have one specific bomb in specific you build like, Hey, I do this one,

Justin Nunly (19:45):

No, just everything. I mean really, uh, you know, J downs. Uh,

Sevan Matossian (19:51):

No shit.

Justin Nunly (19:52):

Yeah. I mean, there’s anything, anything in, in the, uh, in the air force inventory that blows up, we, we mess with missiles bombs.

Sevan Matossian (20:02):

Sorry. I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed. Uh, is that dangerous?

Justin Nunly (20:07):

Not really. I mean, I guess I, I mean, there’s a lot,

Sevan Matossian (20:10):

I get at a gas station. Is that, I mean, you’re around all this flamable liquid. I, I,

Justin Nunly (20:15):

I mean, I mean, hell I guess my job will be just as, just as dangerous as somebody that works at a gas, you know, a gas or

Justin Nunly (20:23):

Something. Right.

Sevan Matossian (20:28):

Um, JDS are the big ones.

Justin Nunly (20:30):

Yes, sir. Yes, sir.

Sevan Matossian (20:32):

Yeah. That’s crazy. Um, are, are you impressed with the technology? Are you impressed with the, with the whole thing? Like when you go there, are you like my goodness, this is nuts. Like, like, like you’re doing, working on the Lamborghini bombs,

Justin Nunly (20:45):

Some of the stuff that comes through, you’re just like, wow. You know, to, to sit and think about somebody’s mind, you know, thinking of this and then actually making it happen is insane.

Sevan Matossian (20:58):

Um, did you have a comic, did when you were a kid that you liked, was there anyone? I was a huge Abbot Costella fan. I’m 49. I’m a 10 years older than you.

Justin Nunly (21:06):

Well, I was actually just talking about this other day. I, I did stand up in Vegas while I was out there for the cheer choice awards and, uh,

Sevan Matossian (21:14):

For the what awards,

Uh, the cheer choice awards it’s, uh, uh, spread the cheer USA, uh, put on a, uh, award show for all of social media. Okay. And they invited me out to be a presenter. And I was a, uh, I was the finalist for two categories. Wow. I won the comedy by the way. Um, beat, beat some very, very funny people. So I was like, shocked. I didn’t even ride an acceptance speech. I just kind of winged it when I got up there. Um, but I, I was at wise guys, comedy club in Vegas and we, you know, before we all went on for our sets, me and somebody else was talking in the back and, um, they asked me, you know, we got to talking about people. We liked. I said, you know, the very first, um, the very first comic that I really watched and like studied how they, you know, how they presented the joke and how they transitioned and everything. Cuz I’ve always been ever since I bought, you know, Chris rock, bigger black or uncut, um, ever since then, I have, I have, I can’t get enough of watching comics and watch them work and see how they deliver the punchline. You know, how many punchlines can you shove into one story, you know? And how can you transition from one story to the other? And they’re so good at it, man. I love watching it. And I’m, I’m finally, I’m finally kinda like living my dream and able to do it myself.

Sevan Matossian (22:36):

And, and so Chris rock was, was your, like as, as a kid, that was your guy?

Justin Nunly (22:40):

Nah, Chappelle

Sevan Matossian (22:41):

Justin Nunly (22:42):

Yeah. Dave Chappelle, um, loved, loved the Chappelle show, which that was, you know, that was when I was a little bit older, right back come up, you know, I really liked, uh, I really did like, uh, yeah, Dave, uh, Chris rock, Dave rock. He’s Dave rock. Chris rock.

Sevan Matossian (22:58):

Uh, Chris rock is Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock’s kid. Right. What, what about Tosh point? Oh,

Justin Nunly (23:03):

I’ve always thought he was funny. Uh, he kind of misses me with some of the Alabama jokes, but it is what it is.

Sevan Matossian (23:09):

Yeah. He’s, he’s my, he’s my like all time favorite now when I was a kid, I liked the, um, I like Rodney Dangerfield. I think I was really into crass humor. I loved of course Andrew D. Clay. You know, he spoke to the 13 year old boy and me,

Justin Nunly (23:23):

Um, 100%.

Sevan Matossian (23:26):

I hear something like two pieces of metal rubbing together. Stopped.

Justin Nunly (23:34):

I was, I was spending my, my, uh, little fidget toy, I guess here. Ah, yeah, that’s what we could call it my bad. I’m sorry.

Sevan Matossian (23:42):

Can I see it?

Justin Nunly (23:42):

I didn’t know. You could hear it. Oh, it’s literally just my, uh, charger. I was sitting here. Just spinning it on the table.

Sevan Matossian (23:51):

Yes, sir. It’s loud as hell

Justin Nunly (23:52):

My bad. Sorry about

Sevan Matossian (23:53):

That. No, you’re a good dude. I

Justin Nunly (23:55):

Have a D I fidget man.

Sevan Matossian (23:56):

Me too. Me too. Um, so, so you did stand up in Vegas. Had you ever done standup before?

Justin Nunly (24:04):

Um, it was really my first set, like being on stage by myself. I’ve done a couple other sets where there were other people on stage with me and it was kinda like a, you know, a big meet and greet, um, uh, in, uh, Arlington, Texas, and then up in Maryland. But this was the first time that I got introduced in, like I was out there on my own. It was like either sink or swim dude. And uh, and the set went really well, absolutely killed. He got a couple big pops out of the crowd. So it was, it was fun.

Sevan Matossian (24:32):

I don’t think it’s that thing you’re spinning. I think it’s something else. Maybe it’s your turn, your head right. And left. Let me see. It’s that? Don’t worry about it. Don’t worry about it. This guy Colin says on as sensitive to sounds his big nose. Here’s everything could be

Justin Nunly (24:50):

I’ll hold it up like this. Well, see, uh, no, I have AirPods, right. And, and I have, I’m supposed to be on my laptop right now with my GoPro. We just got back from Vegas night before last didn’t like the middle of the night. And my parents were here watching the kids and everything is scattered about, I called crystal. I said, where’s my GoPro at? She said, it’s still in my purse. I was like, I’ll figure it out. Where are my AirPods at? They’re in purse two. So women,

Sevan Matossian (25:17):

Hey, how do you hook your, um, how do you hook your, um, uh, GoPro up to your computer? You

Justin Nunly (25:21):

Have a, so there’s a, no, I have a, um, I have windows. It’s, there’s a, a, you can get to, you use your GoPro as a webcam and the pitcher is phenomenal.

Sevan Matossian (25:31):

And is it wireless or you hook it up with a wire? I

Justin Nunly (25:33):

Hook it up through the, uh, USB.

Sevan Matossian (25:35):

And does, does the computer power? The GoPro also? Yes,

Justin Nunly (25:38):

Sir.

Sevan Matossian (25:39):

Wow. It’s okay. So you got phenomenal. And where do you set the GoPro? Does it have its own little tripod or you set on top of your laptop?

Justin Nunly (25:45):

No, I’ve got a, uh, it’s. It’s like a little attachment for it. It it’s like a clip that I just clipped to the top of the laptop.

Sevan Matossian (25:52):

It turns it into a webcam man. That’s dope.

Justin Nunly (25:55):

It’s amazing. It really is best.

Sevan Matossian (25:57):

How cool is technology?

Justin Nunly (25:58):

Best webcam. I found.

Sevan Matossian (26:00):

That’s awesome. Um, so you you’re, I I’m, um, I’m envious, um, that you, that you, that are doing standup. I mean, that really is the, that would be my dream, like to, to grow a fucking set of balls and do some standup. That’s really, that’s really cool that you’re doing that. You still there? Yeah. We came outta sync a little bit. I shouldn’t have talked about your setup. I’m sorry. I apologize. It’s all your set up. I’m sorry. You can’t hear me. Phantom power is the best. Yeah, it’s crazy cool. Right, Corey. And he’s gone every minute. I expect him to just switch. So do you wanna give your money to the government or do you wanna give it to other people so that they can spend it? And every time I bring that up, someone will be like, oh, so you believe in trickled down economics, shut the fuck up. Stop playing that game. Hey,

Justin Nunly (26:59):

I’m sorry.

Sevan Matossian (27:00):

That’s okay. I just went straight back into my rant about taxes. Um, so, so you’re doing standup. You’re kind of living the dream and you’re not even, I mean, you you’re, you’re like people talk about, oh, I got into a flow state. Like you’re really in a, in a life time flow state, like you didn’t try to do standup you’re you’re just following a path. Now you you’re you’re you’re on a big river and you’re, and you’re, and you’re, you’re swimming it.

Justin Nunly (27:31):

Yeah. And the cool thing is, is that I don’t have to rely on it to make a living. I don’t have to rely on anything to make a living. So everything that I’m doing, you know, right now is for fun. And for experience that way in three years, you know, or, or sooner. I mean, if I, I mean, if I, if I blow up, you know, um, I may wind up having to get outta the military. Um, but, um, you know, that’s not my plan right now. I’m, I’m having a blast doing what I’m doing. Uh, but everything’s for experience. And I don’t know, I’m having a blast doing it.

Sevan Matossian (28:05):

Did you do, when you went up, did you have crazy butterfly lies like you, um, did you have that fight or fight or flight, like you really wanted to just, no, you didn’t wanna run away?

Justin Nunly (28:13):

No, I walked up there just like I am right now. Like, let’s do this. Wow. Like, I, I, well, because I’ve got, I’ve got the mindset of, you know, um, I don’t, my mindset changed probably about a year ago. Um, used to worry about everything. I worried about what people thought about me. I worried about, you know, what somebody else was gonna do. I would always try to calculate other people’s moves before they would make ’em that way, you know, I could, you know, counter it or whatever, dude. I changed my mindset to, I don’t worry about things I can’t control anymore. If it is not within my control, I don’t even worry about it. You know, somebody will send me information and I process it of, can I do something to fix this? Or can I not do something to fix this? Or I have no control over it. And if I don’t have any control over it, it never enters my mind. Again, I don’t care.

Sevan Matossian (29:04):

How did you, how did you make that shift?

Justin Nunly (29:07):

Just so many people. Like I, um, it was probably, probably around the time when like, people were just coming at me all the time. Like, you know, this guy’s, this, this guy’s that. And trying to put labels on me and I’m like, I really don’t give a shit. What you think about me? You know? Like, why do I care? What somebody has to say about me? You know, some faceless person on the internet that probably lives the most miserable life and is trying to bring somebody down for trying to make other people laugh. So, you know, that’s kind of where I just spun around. I was like, I I’ve learned quickly that there are, there is nothing that I can possibly do as a human being to make everyone love me, period. I can’t. Yeah. People hated Bob Marley. Yes. 100% people hated Jesus Christ. I know that was gonna go there next, you know? Yeah. There’s, there’s nothing I can do to make everybody love me. So I don’t care anymore. I.
