Interview with Keenan Ivory Wayans and Russell Peters of "Last Comic Standing" on NBC 8/11/14

Earlier in the season, I interviewed Roseanne, so it was great to also interview the other judges.  It's a very funny and entertaining show. My husband and I used to watch "In Living Color" every week when we were younger, so it was awesome to speak with Keenan!

Moderator: MARSHA RICKETT-Conference Call
August 11, 2014 2:00 p.m. ET

Operator: Good afternoon, my name is (Jeremy) and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the Last Comic Standing conference call. All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. We will be taking questions throughout the call. If you wish to ask a question, simply press star one on your telephone keypad. To withdraw your question, please press the pound key. Thank you. I would now like to hand the call over to Ms. Jill Carmen at NBC.

Jill Carmen: Thank you everybody for dialing in today and a big thank you to Keenan and Russell for taking the time to do the call today about our Last Comic Standing finale which airs this Thursday from 9 to 11 Eastern on NBC. We just like to ask that questions be limited to two per outlet until everyone’s had a chance to talk to the guys. And they are ready to take your questions now. Thank you.

Russell Peters: Not everybody at once, please.

Operator: And your first question comes from the line of Suzanne Lanoue from the TV MegaSite. Your line is open.

Suzanne Lanoue: Good morning.

Russell Peters: Good morning.

Suzanne Lanoue: I was wondering, do we know yet whether you guys will be back next season?

Russell Peters: I know I'd like to be but I haven't heard if I am or not. This is Russell by the way.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes, we haven't officially been asked yet.

Suzanne Lanoue: Oh, OK. All right, I've wanted to ask each of you has this season lived up to your expectations that you had at the beginning of the year or exceeded them or, what can you tell us about that?

Russell Peters: I think the level of talent, it really exceeded my expectations and the public’s response really exceeded my expectations, and the emotional investment a lot of people have put into a lot of the comics that, you know, may or may not have made it to this far has also surprised me. So, yes, everything about the show has exceeded everything I thought it would be.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes, I'd have to agree with Russell. I didn't know what to expect coming in. I did it because, of, you know, prior relationships I've had with people, and you know, I thought it would be fun. But, everything that has happened on all sides, I was pleasantly surprised that NBC allowed the comedians to be as funny as they were and to push the boundaries like they did. I'm surprised at the level of talent. I was surprised at, like Russell said, the audience response and investment in the comedians and it's all been a great ride.

Suzanne Lanoue: All right, thanks so much. I look forward to the finale.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Hal Boedeker from Orlando Sentinel. Your line is open.

Hal Boedeker: Thank you. This is for Keenan. I'm wondering, what does it mean to you being out on tour with your brothers right now and has it helped you on the show at all?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Well, I won't say it's helped me on the show but it's helped me to articulate to the comedians on the show because I'm experiencing what they're experiencing. So, it's very real.

Hal Boedeker: And what does it mean to you to be out there with your brothers on the tour?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Well, for us, this is like, you know, the first time we've ever done this and it's been a dream of ours for, I mean, since we all started. And, so, you know, because of all the other things that we've done in TV and film, we've never had the time. So, now, this is just, like I said, a dream come true. So, we're having a ball.

Hal Boedeker: Thank you.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of my Mike Hughes with TV America. Your line is open.

Mike Hughes: Hey Keenan, I wanted to ask you about first impressions because I remember when Lachlan first came on and you talked, you said he looked like a mannequin. And I was just thinking about that because, you know, we expect comedian somehow more to look like Woody Allen or something and be kind of short, thoughtful looking guys and so forth. So, kind of, what was your first impression of this 6'4" guy standing up there looking like a model and how has your impression of him evolved as time went on?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Well, my initial impression when he first walked out was, “Oh. This guy looks like a mannequin, you know, what is he going to do?” And that, I think is a genuine response from the audience no matter who the comedian is. Unless, you look funny, then people's response is, oh boy. I know the guy, you know what I mean? If you don't fit in that mold, then the audience is always going to doubt you.

But, what was great about Lachlan is he had that twinkle and that's the key right there. That twinkle in the eye, knowing that you're funny and knowing that you're not just funny, but you're the funniest guy in the room, and that's what he does. And he's very sly, you know, I think he's a very, not just a good standup, but, you know, but crafty as well. You know, - you’ll see in the finale. He paced himself well and he really delivers. He's a funny guy. He's got a big career.

Mike Hughes: Okay. Cool. And Russell, I wondered if you can do some standup here on the finale. They always say that you should start early with material that's the most unusual about you, and one of the things is that you're a comedian with roots in India - Family roots that most comedians don't have. Was that kind of key importance when you first got started to point out some of the things that were different about you?

Russell Peters: Well, absolutely. I mean, my whole life I was reminded that, you know, growing up in Canada, I was reminded that I was not like the other kids and they are the ones that actually reminded me that I was not like them. As a kid, you don't know that you're not like other people. You just assume everybody’s the same. And because I was the first Indian guy to get in this game 25 years ago, it would be ridiculous for me to ignore the holy elephant in the room.

Mike Hughes: And overall, has it been a good thing for you? I mean, just giving you a lot of great material?

Russell Peters: Its amazing thing for me. You know, if I didn't do it, somebody else would've and they might not have done it as well. So, yes, I'm very pleased with the way things went for me.

Mike Hughes: Cool, thanks a lot.

Russell Peters: Thank you.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Rodney Ho with the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Your line is open.

Rodney Ho: Hey guys. I'm here to talk about Rod Man since he's from this area. I just wanted to get your impressions of him over the course. It seems like he's been very consistent, hasn't he from the beginning to the most recent?

Russell Peters: (Inaudible) be consistent and he's a guy that I've known for about 15 years and when he first walked out on the first show, in my head, I went “Oh boy. I don't know how this is going to go.” Because I've seen him destroy in black rooms but this is a mixed room and it's a very different game. When he destroyed the same way he destroyed in a black room I was like, “Uh oh. Maybe I’ve apparently have misjudged everything.”

Keenan Ivory Wayans: The first time I saw Rod Man was on the show.

Rodney Ho: OK.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: So, I didn't have any, you know, preconceived ideas about him. What I liked about him was that he had this everyman kind of confusion and he was able to take subject matter and weave it into this character that took it from being jokes to personal kind of point of view.

And I thought that that was - thought it was very clever and I thought he was able to get away with a lot of things because of the character that he was portraying. So, you know, I thought, okay, this guy is – I like comedians who bring a different take on things and that's what I saw on him. I was like, okay, I like his take and in terms of his consistency, he absolutely has been consistent. Every single night that he's performed, he's killed it.
Rodney Ho: So he can get away with talking about saggy breast and ugly babies and make people like him, right?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Exactly. Exactly, because it's coming from - yes. It's coming from this character and once you buy the character, he can talk about anything.

Rodney Ho: Thank you, guys.

Russell Peters: Thank you. Bye Rodney Ho.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Bill Harris with Sun Media. Your line is open.

Bill Harris: Hey guys. Just wanted to ask both of you about the sort of general tone of comedy these days and as it is reflected on the show. Do you think that comedy now is softer than it was when you guys broke in - is it harsher now. I mean, Joan Rivers gets in trouble every second day for saying something and I honestly can't gauge anymore because I don't know what's controversial and what's not.

Because there's always going to be a group that says it is and there's always going to be a group that says it isn't. So, can you talk a little bit about the current state of comedic discourse and do you think it's reflected in the contestants and on the show?

Russell Peters: Well, I think the public and the media, you know, whoever dictates what political correctness says are the people that are really almost trying to ruin comedy. Comedy is about people saying things that everybody's afraid to say. Comedy’s the last bastion of freedom of speech and Americus always bragging about our freedoms and our freedoms and the rest of the world once our freedoms and they don't like our freedoms.

And our freedom of speech is the last - we don't have that anymore. We have to word everything so carefully now that it actually makes our job far less organic because we can't speak the way we need to speak.

And I think the younger generation of comics that comes up with that and, which is great for them because they come up wording things a certain way and writing a different way, which adds to a new element of comedy. But, there will always be the old cards like myself, and Keenan, and Roseann who don't care about political correctness and say what we need to say.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: I think it’s a comedian’s job to defy political correctness. I think that's why people come to see you. You're supposed to be the guy who says what no one else will say, and that's why people laugh. So, I think there's always been political correctness. There's always been conservatism. I mean, when I did In Living Color, we were at the height of conservatism, it was the Reagan era.

And it was just my job to come in and, you know, say all the things that nobody else would say and I caught hell. You're not a good comedian if you're not catching hell, so, you know, I don't think that in terms of, you know, what you said about being able to gage it, you shouldn't even try. You should just go out and say it. Be funny, and, you know, the audience will let you know. As long as they're laughing, you're in the zone.

Bill Harris: Do you think that maybe social media has sort of, in a way, has almost hurt it and a bit because you're always going to get a reaction to anything no matter what you say, and extreme reaction. So, it's harder to understand where you're at, you know.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Here’s where social media and the Internet has hurt art, period, is that people invade the creative space. So now, you got cameras in comedy clubs and places where comedians are working out material. And then, you know, it's being presented before it's been formed.

It's like my brother Shawn has a great line where he says, “It's like judging a baby based on the sonogram.” You know, it's just being formed. You know, you can't sit there and go, “Ooh. Look at the head on that boy.” So it's the same kind of thing with comedy. It's like, you know, there are places that the art form is to be developed before it's presented, you know, to the main stage and as long as you have people coming in and invading that space, you know, you inhibit creativity that way. I think there's certain places where it just doesn't belong.

Bill Harris: Thanks very much.

Russell Peters: Thanks.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Jamie Ruby with Your line is open.

Jamie Ruby: Hi guys, thanks for doing the call today. Could you each tell me maybe your favorite moment through the season, your favorite memory?

Russell Peters: For me, it was the night where Monroe Martin and Joe Machi have to go head-to-head and we really couldn't decide and we made them do, I think it was, three overtime rounds. Was it three, Keen?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes.

Russell Peters: Three or four, it was something crazy. But, we really genuinely could not decide as to who won that night. That was my moment, one of them.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes, that - I would say, to me, that was one of the more exciting moments because that made the show real. That made the competition real.

Jamie Ruby: Okay, well thank you so much.

Russell Peters: Thanks.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Wayne Hicks with Denver Business Journal. Your line is open.

Wayne Hicks: Hey guys, this is for Russell. I'm wondering what your presence on the show has done to increase your visibility in the United States?

Russell Peters: Well, you know, I was pretty much an invisible celebrity in America. I was a celebrity but it was not celebrated. It has definitely increased my profile, I would say. If you watch the show, then you'll know at least my face. You may not know who I am or what I do, but you’ll at least know my face by now. And it's little things like that. I'm big fan of walking before you run, so, you know, no rush. There's no finish line of comedy. You can do this for the rest of your life.

Wayne Hicks: Lee, you've been at Comedy Works here in Denver and I believe you've got another show coming up. That was a pretty small room but you prefer that kind of venue to like an arena or a big theater?

Russell Peters: Yes, I mean, I like to switch it up all the time. When you're doing - see, I'm getting ready for an arena tour about 10 days after I finish Comedy Works, I will be performing in arenas again. So, I like the intensity of doing six shows in three nights or eight shows in four nights. And then, you know, that makes you sharp. And you've got the audience right there so if you want to mess around, you can mess around. If you want to run your side, you could run your set.

So, you got a lot of freedom in the clubs that you don't get in the arena us. But, I’ll never stop doing clubs because that's, you know, you've always got to get back to your roots no matter what you're doing.

Wayne Hicks: Okay. Thank you.

Russell Peters: Thank you.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Amy Harrington Pop-culture Pashionitas. Your line is open.

Amy Harrington: Hi guys. Thanks so much for your time today.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: You're welcome.

Amy Harrington: Keenan, I actually did your archive of American television interview last year.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Oh, I remember. It's funny, I just saw that online.

Amy Harrington: Oh cool. It was a great day and, you know, I can't help but think of the story you told while I'm watching Last Comic Standing. You saying that you had seen your Tonight Show appearance in recent years and how that kind of reignited your passion for doing stand-up.

And, I was wondering if that had any impact on your decision to do show and, or, the way you've approached judging the show?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: It definitely had an impact on my decision to do the show because as I told you, me after seeing the journey was all about getting back to your smile, right. So, you know, to have an opportunity to come and watch young people who are in that zone right now who are pursuing their dream is - just reminds you. You know, it just puts you back in a greater emotional state because the pursuit of a dream, there's no greater high than that, you know.

And to see them go on and do well, you know, and move onto the next round. It's like; you see that in their eyes, you see that joy. And like I said, it's infectious. So, it definitely is part of the experience.

Amy Harrington: That's great. And then, a question for both of you, how do you think you would have done as contestants on Last Comic Standing when you were just starting out in your careers?

Russell Peters: I think I would've failed miserably. In all honesty, I mean, maybe in the early stages of my career, I might've had that zeal that you need to move forward but I've often been a wordy guy who may take a little bit more time then I need to get to the punchline, as you can tell by the answer I'm giving you right now.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes, I think I would've been a warrior. I don't know how I would've done but I would've been a warrior.

Amy Harrington: Excellent. Well thanks so much you guys. Have a good day.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Sorry.

Operator: Next question comes from the line of (Debra Kessler) with (Enterra bang). Your line is open.

Debra Kessler: Yes, hi guys. I was wondering has it been tough to judge other comedians or is that just something that comes naturally for both of you?

Russell Peters: Well, as a comic who still hangs out in the clubs and stuff, I know you don't want to judge other comics but, you know, it's comedians nature to automatically question anything that's presented in front of us. I wouldn't say, I don't know for comedians or just people that question life and everything around us.

So yes, it is difficult but at the same time, it's kind of natural.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes, I don't really feel like I'm judging. I feel like - when I'm watching them, I'm not really putting their thinking this person is good or bad. I'm sitting there thinking, oh man, this guy needs to hold the mic closer to his face or that joke would've worked better if he had done this, that, or the other.

So, the way comics work, you know, in the club is if Russell where to go on and I were at the back of the room, I’d be watching Russell not from the standpoint of judging him but, oh I got to give him this note. Oh, he forgot to do this. I'm vicariously performing, you know.

And, you get a lot great tips from fellow comedians because when you come off stage, they will give you those notes. And so, that's kind of the mindset that I have when I'm watching the show. I'm not really judging them, I'm performing by vicariously.

Debra Kessler: Thank you. And also for each of you, is there any one person that looking back he would've love to see in the finale but maybe because of a tough matchup, they got away too soon?

Russell Peters: For me, would've been Joe Machi and Rocky Laporte, But then, if you were to go right back to the beginning, there was a guy named Joe Zimmerman who I still to this day regret not getting put forth on the show to make it through to even challenge further.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes, there were a couple of guys in the very beginning who I know we're great standups like (Wilson) that I wish I had done another set so that they could have moved further into the competition.

Debra Kessler: Okay, thanks guys.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Thank you.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Sean McCarthy with The Comics Comic. Your line is open.

Sean McCarthy: Thanks guys. We've been able to see throughout the series, little snippets of your deliberations from week to week and I'm curious to know how, as we got to the finale, how much you balanced how a comedian can fit into the mold of a sitcom star because of the network development deal versus just plain who's the flat out funniest each night?

Russell Peters: Well the thing is we had to consider that, but it wasn't just that they were getting a sitcom deal, they were getting a development deal too. It might've been a sketch comedy show. You know, it could've been Rosanne, or it could've been In Living Color. Who knows what they wanted to do? So, we couldn’t look at it just from that aspect of will they make a good sitcom.

We have to look at it as are they be presentable? Will they be consistent? Do they have enough point of view to create a vehicle for themselves. I think Keenan can answer this better because he's more in that world.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes, but I think Russell's right. We consider their point of view but it always came down to who was funny. You know, funny came first and then it was, if it was a tie between two people we would say well who do you think really has another five minutes. Who do we think really, you know, if they won this competition could have a show built around them. So, then we’d have those discussions but it always was funny first.

Sean McCarthy: So, in other words, funniest twins?

Russell Peters: Yes.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: That's clever.

Sean McCarthy: Did you pay close attention to Marlon’s show which also has its season finale this week?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: I have. We watch it on the road together.

Russell Peters: (Inaudible) by the way, Keenan. I was like, “Wait a minute. Isn’t this the same show that me and his brother are doing?”

Sean McCarthy: Which came first by the way, you getting – signing up with Last Comic or him getting the deal with TBS?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: I think they happen simultaneously actually. But, he didn't ask me. So, you know…

Sean McCarthy: So, going forward for next year, how would you advise comedians since Last Comic has already been renewed for next season?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: How would I advise...

Sean McCarthy: Comedians in approaching, even at that first invitational set.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: I mean, now that the show is on the air, I think there's - next crop will kind of get that you have to put your best foot forward. Don't try to save it. The key is to win. So, you know, you go out there with guns blazing and if you make it, now you start to get strategic. You know what I mean? All right guys, a lot of guys who should have moved forward didn't because they held back.

Sean McCarthy: Would you agree with that Russell?

Russell Peters: Oh, absolutely. I mean, and I understood their plan of attack but, you know, a lot of the veteran guys that came into the very first episode but never moves forward, the problem is - things like boxing to me. If you can't teach at 12 round fighter, you can't tell a 12 round fighter to fight one round.

We don't know how to do that. We only know how to extend it out. So, it's easier for the younger guys with the little, maybe a few years less on them to make those changes. But, when you're a full-fledged headliner and you travel around the country or the world and you've got a certain set way of doing your stuff, it's a tough edit for you.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Right. You don't know how to do five minutes.

Russell Peters: Yes, you genuinely don't know how to do five minutes.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: You know how to do five minutes when you first start, because that's all you got. So, it's true. It's hard once you have an hour, it's hard to do five minutes.

Sean McCarthy: All right, thanks guys. Will be seeing you guys next year?

Russell Perkins: I hope so.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes, I hope so.

Sean McCarthy: Great. Thanks for your time.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Gina Scarborough from Your line is open.

Gina Scarborough: Hi guys. Thanks so much for doing this today.

Russell Perkins: Hey, Gina.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: You’re welcome.

Gina Scarborough: Hey, well you know, the final three comics are also different and I was wondering does that make your job tougher as judge because they are so different?

Russell Perkins: I think the more different they are, the better it is. You know, you don't want three people that are exactly alike because then you'll be like what's the point of watching this.

Gina Scarborough: And then the other thing is, you know, watching (inaudible) has been amazing. What do you think it is about him that has resonated so well with the viewers?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Who’s that?

Gina Scarborough: (Elena).

Russell Perkins: (Inaudible).

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Who’s that?

Russell Perkins: It was the Indian kid that moved on to the second round.

Keenan Ivory Wayans. Oh. I was like, (inaudible). I’ve never heard of that. We actually thought he was great.

Russell Perkins: Yes.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: So, it’s not surprising.

Russell Perkins: He was a very funny kid and he crafts great jokes and I think that just resonated with people, you know.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes. He's very smart. You can tell, this guys’ brilliant. He just, you know, in the competition, that particular night. His set wasn’t the strongest.

Gina Scarborough: Got it. Thank you guys so much.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Hal Boedeker with Orlando Sentinel. Your line is open.

Hal Boedeker: Oh, thanks. Keenan, I wanted to go back to something you said, that you were pleasantly surprised that NBC allowed the comedians to be funny as they were and push the boundaries. I'm just wondering what do you think of the state of comedy on TV these days?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Honestly, I think comedy on TV is – there is some great comedy on TV. I say, TV in general is great nowadays. I think movies is where we’re suffering but TV is a great medium right now.

Russell Peters: TVs great. I don't know if network TVs great, what TV in general is great.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes.

Hal Boedeker: Why do you think the movies are suffering?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Because comedians aren't doing comedy.

Hal Boedeker: There was an announcement that there might be some In Living Color specials. Where does that stand? Is it ever going to happen?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: I know nothing about that.

Hal Boedeker: No, nothing about that? Okay?

Russell Peters: (Inaudible). There's something I wanted to break to you today, Keenan.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Oh okay, working on that.

Hal Boedeker: But nothing?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: No, I wouldn't be opposed to it. But nothing is in the works right now.

Hal Boedeker: Thank you.

Operator: And your last question comes from the line of Mike Hughes with TVAmerica. Your line is open.

Mike Hughes: Yes you guys, we talked individually about two of the people, but we didn't really talk individually about Nikki. So, I was wondering if both of you could kind of talk about Nikki, first impressions of her and if she's evolved - kind of what you think of her.

Russell Peters: Nikki Carr is one of those ones whose name I didn't know before the show. I didn't know much about her and when she came out, you know, I always have my - no matter who comes out in front of me, I always have some sort of, you know, I don't know if I'm a cynic, but in my head I try to figure it out before they say anything.

And, she was one of those people who surprised me every turn she took and I continuously get surprised by her - pleasantly obviously- she’s just one of those people that connects with people and her material is great.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes, I would have to say I immediately liked her. She reminded me of, like, a female Bernie Mac.

Mike Hughes: That’s good.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: I am immediately was taken by her charm, and her presence and just her love of making people laugh. That was infectious and definitely made me a fan. Where I always had my question was, does she have another five minutes? And, surprisingly, all the way to this finale, and even in this finale, it gets competitive. I mean, these three guys battle it out and of all three, she's the one that I'm nervous for. And she (inaudible)…

Russell Peters: I have this weird nervous - because there’s a vulnerability about her…

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes.

Russell Peters: …and it's one of those things where you think, I think she might crack and she doesn't.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: No. It's awesome. She's awesome.

Mike Hughes: And, one other thing about the finale, they told us a little bit, they said Russell’s going to do something, Roseann's going to do something, the comeback guys going to do something. And of course, the three finalists. But that ain't two hours. So can you give us an idea of what else is going to happen in this finale?

Keenan Ivory Wayans: I wish I could but these people…

Mike Hughes: Okay. Anything else, though?

Russell Peters: In all fairness, I haven’t seen the final episode, I just remember shooting it. So, you know, I think a lot of people don’t really understand is that – because people will come to me on the streets and ask me about the show and they’ll talk about the comics backstory and as a judge, we never saw the backstory. All we saw was the comics doing comedy in front of us.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Well, I’ve seen everything, Russell (inaudible) research my friend.

Russell Peters: I'm sorry.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: No, I'm kidding. I haven’t seen anything.

Mike Hughes: But in general, these guys are going to have several rounds in the finale then rather than…

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes.

Mike Hughes: OK. I got you.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: It’s a battle. They battle it out. It’s a great finale and you’re going to – all three of them – what you’ve seen before the finale, has not been their best. So, all three of them have saved their best for last and (inaudible)…

Russell Peters: Yes. Every time they were spent, they weren’t’.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Yes.

Mike Hughes: OK. Thanks a lot.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: All right.

Operator: And we have no further questions at this time. I’d like to turn the call back over to Ms. Jill Carmen.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: All right.

Jill Carmen: Well thanks everybody for dialing in today and thank you again Keenan and Russell for taking the time to do the call and hope everybody has a good day. Buh bye.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: All righty. Buh bye.

Russell Peters: Bye Keenan. I love you and miss you my brother.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: Love you too. I’ll see you soon.

Russell Peters: OK, man.

Keenan Ivory Wayans: All right. Bye.

Operator: And this concludes today’s conference call. You may now disconnect.
