RONALD RENWICK: Let’s hit this out of the gate. Did comedy turn you openly gay?
JOHN PRIDMORE: No, being openly gay turned me into a comic.
RENWICK: Which is better?
PRIDMORE: Doesn’t matter. Either way I’m getting fucked in the ass.
RENWICK: What is your scratch off ticket strategy?
PRIDMORE: Scratch a ticket…become a millionaire
RENWICK: Does your family care you’re… well…. a comedian?
PRIDMORE: They don’t approve of the lifestyle
RENWICK: Are they unaware that you could also be polish?
PRIDMORE: I am Polish. Most of my family knows. There are a few who don’t but that’s because they’re Polish
RENWICK: Tied, bottom 9, 2 outs, and there’s full count; are you swinging for contact or the fence?
PRIDMORE: Are you asking if I’m a bottom?
RENWICK: Well are/will you?
PRIDMORE: I do what I need to do but I prefer to be on top.
RENWICK: Jesus wrote the Catcher in the Rye, who wrote the bible?
PRIDMORE: Erma Bombeck
RENWICK: Wow, I she’s so old I had to Google her to see who she was. Do you believe in either of them?
PRIDMORE: I believe in Erma Bombeck.
RENWICK: Does this picture of me do anything for ya?
PRIDMORE: It makes me wonder why you’re wearing three shirts.
RENWICK: I’m actually only wearing one shirt. It’s a stripe on my shorts. How about this one?
PRIDMORE: Nudity please!
RENWICK: If it’s always sunny in Philadelphia what is it in Pittsburgh?
RENWICK: When do you think it will open?
PRIDMORE: At 6:00 a.m.
RENWICK: What’s your favorite car?
PRIDMORE: You know I’m gay, right?
RENWICK: You’re gay?
PRIDMORE: Only for you, baby. Mwah.
RENWICK: Ever been in a fist fight?
PRIDMORE: Yes. I’m tougher than I look.
RENWICK: What’s your record?
PRIDMORE: The last real fight I got into was in 8th grade. He gave me a bloody nose and I gave him a black eye. Also, I broke my hand punching my best friend in the face.
RENWICK: You often look frail. Maybe you should eat some vegetables.
PRIDMORE: I eat lots of veggies. I’m just fragile.
RENWICK: Do lesbians use double headed toothbrushes?
PRIDMORE: I don’t understand the question.
RENWICK: They use double headed dildos. I was just wondering if you could shed some light on other facets of their lives.
PRIDMORE: Don’t get me started on the lesbians. Gawd!
RENWICK: What’s the most annoying kind of co-worker?
PRIDMORE: The kind that keeps his job when I lose mine.
RENWICK: You have the most uncanny attire for a man of your stature. Why is that?
PRIDMORE: I wear what I want because (at least in that respect) I just don’t give a fuck.
RENWICK: What’s your favorite thing to do on stage?
PRIDMORE: Frontal nudity.
RENWICK: Damn, I must have missed that show. Will there be another?
PRIDMORE: Trying to put together a show at a nudist colony. Want to be on it?
RENWICK: You see me from across the bar, what’s your pick up line?
PRIDMORE: Want this in your mouth?
RENWICK: Why yes are you offering me a beer?
PRIDMORE: Hot Toddy
RENWICK: Shortcuts or the long way?
PRIDMORE: Long way
RENWICK: Would you consider this interview the long way?
PRIDMORE: No, I would consider this the incredibly tedious and annoying route. Can we be done talking now…forever.
