Yeah, So I feel like the thing that I got knocked down that I persevered with was from middle school toe like sophomore year of high school. I was just in insidious prank caller and and honestly, for like a 12 year old, I would say I was like, Professional level, very good. I'm just going to give myself that. I could be very humble, but I think I was like a very good friend color, but absolutely. Thank you so much. So welcome. So, for instance, one of my pranks waas I There's this radio station in Kansas City where I'm from mixed 93.3 and the like, coolest D. J. Dennis Pryor. I would call people acting like Dennis Pryor doing random calls. So, for instance, I'd be like, Hey, what's up? This is Dennis Pryor from mixed 93.3, doing random calls and people would be like, Oh my God, I'd be like, all right, we are thistles like a 12 year old girl, and you managed to change your voice enough that I mean, I don't I don't know what Dennis Pryor sounds like, but that's impressive. Yeah, so I would I would say, We're doing random calls trivia question of the day for Free Chiefs tickets to this Sunday's game. And they were like, Oh, my God, Chief ticket, I'll be like question Random question of the day is who played opposite Kate Winslet in Titanic. And I realized I brought up Leonardo DiCaprio before and this already, but that was one that I did. And they'd be like, That's easy laid out of the Cabrio And I'm like, That's right. You won Chiefs tickets coming down to the station later today to pick them up. Um, s O crazy thing was that my mom actually did travel. She was traveling for Dennis Pryor, the D. J. And she was aware I was doing this shit and so one time, like he's booking his trip to Mexico or something. And she's like, How are things down at the station? And he's like, fine, except some assholes keeps calling people telling them that they won free Chiefs tickets And so we got people coming down the station, and she's like, Oh my God, this is my daughter s O. That that, coupled with the fact that also I was doing so many others. We got a letter from the phone company that said, Shut it down. We know Frank's coming from the phone company. We know why pranks air coming from. And I wish I would have kept that letter like That's Baller That is so cool. But at the time, my mom was pit and I had shame, and it was just like, Shut it down. You won't crank anymore And you know, then I become an adult and it's not cool to prank as an adult. So for a long time and just know praying right, which is a shame. But you But you get you got knocked down, but you get back up again. I get back up again because of you. Last year I get asked to do cranking. It's full circle and I get paid, baby, the new prank from a whole different room. That is hilarious. Ah, few things I love. The first thing I want to ask about is you recorded in a hotel room like that Feels like so like like no student a studio just like, hey, meet us at the Sheraton Garden in and then we were at a Hilton. Don't don't be followed. Kind A, I willingly went. Yeah, it was already My God, that is so funny. Well, I don't know. You know this, but I actually have a hidden background and hidden camera prank comedy. Yeah, I did scare tactics for for two years, and I mean, obviously you have an affinity for pranking because it comes naturally to you from your roots a little bit, but didn't feel. Didn't feel as kind of fulfilling as an adult. Like, did you get that? Like, Butterfly? I mean, I'm I'm assuming that you got, like, a You love this word. Spoken like a true honor. A bit of a rush when you did it as a kid did. That still exists as an adult. Yeah. It was weird, because the first couple pranks I felt like I was in an audition, like I was kind of I was a little more performing or trying to make the people in the room in the hotel room laugh. Right? But once I got into it and you know, I was pulling out my old tricks, I was like, Oh, yeah, no, I got this. Like, I'm I'm a prank. Er, dude, it's who you are. Yeah, the rush came back and the 12 year old came back and it was like, Oh, my God, that's amazing. I love it so much. I love I love so many details again about this. It's just a set up, like walking in, like to crank Yankers. Like just the name Crank Yankers, which isn't a e. I watch that show all the time, but that name, like you're coming to this hotel, you're bringing a briefcase to record an episode of Crank Yankers like It's just so good. It's so good on so many levels, you know, and the other thing to people always ask me like, Did you ever feel guilty pranking people? And I never did. I was like, You're giving somebody like the anecdote that they could tell for the rest of their lives. Dude, I feel like the worst thing about being a prank er is the karmic energy that I actually never got pranked like, I've never gotten a prank phone call, and that would be awesome. Like I was always begging for pranks. Just little. I'm like it's a story. You get pranked, you get full day
