Happy Thanksgiving from Brooklyn Original! As a special legal holiday treat we benefaction to we this wonderful talk with up as well as entrance mount up comic extraordinaire, Frank-Oh! Petitto. Enjoy as well as eat well!

Frank, you're a of march droll guy, so when did we get a thought of branch that in to a mount up humerous entertainment routine?

Well Jim.....that is your name right?? we had been throwing around a thought of we do mount up for a long time. Days in fact. Anyhoo, Ive listened over as well as over again that we should take it to a stage, as well as when we listen to it from sufficient people, when we listen to it from a RIGHT people, we begin thinking. And similar to Wilford Brimley once pronounced aboot Quaker Oats: "It's a right thing to do as well as a right approach to do it". Plus if I'm successful, there's a lot of income to be made.

How do we come up with your material?

Well what we similar to to do is sit in front of my computer as well as write, as well as write, as well as write whatever is upon my mind. Usually what we come up with sucks ass, so up until diversion time, (which technically has usually been once), we do not have a final action until we hit a theatre as well as infrequently that's when its a funniest. we find that my nitch is possibly revelation stories or usually spewing out a single liners, that we consider might be a approach I'm gonna go upon December 5th.

What have been a little of a hurdles an up as well as entrance mount up comic faces?

Being droll AND original. You do not wanna go up there not confident that what you're gonna say isn't starting to get a reaction from a people. And we additionally do not wish to go up there regulating someone else's material, because no make a difference how problematic a mount up comic who's material we have been regulating is, there is gonna be someone out there who knows that we have been borrowing, as well as that's not good. Also, being a single of a final to go up upon theatre could be a disadvantage when we have people shopping we all drinks all night until we get up there.

What is it similar to performing in front of a live audience, as well as does a crowd's reaction expostulate your act?

Well similar to we pronounced prior to I've usually done it once before, though we was propitious sufficient to have a great 60% of a audience there to see me. Hearing my name being chanted via a night, even prior to we got up there, was an adrenaline rush that we couldn't imagine.

Are there any stand-up comedians or performances, past or present, that have shabby your action in any way? And how do we consider we smoke-stack up to those comedians or performances?

Honestly, I'm unequivocally not even in to examination mount up comedy, though I'm a big air blower of Norm MacDonald. His dry clarity of amusement as well as delivery always burst me up. Plus he's Canadian so if we listen closely, we might here a word "aboot" thrown in there once in a while.

How do we smoke-stack up? we am a widespread force in humerous entertainment of course.....hey.....that rhymed.

What else inspires your comedy?

The children...I do it for a children...and Ang Lee.

How would we report your action to people that haven't seen you?

Well, once again, similar to we pronounced before, I've usually done it once. The first time we told a story. A dirty, DIRTY about filthy pornography as well as evil masturbation. we was propitious sufficient to have my mom most sitting upon theatre with me. She must have been so proud. we consider this time we might change it around a little with a little a single liners as well as Jerry Seinfeld-like observations. I'm additionally operative upon something that compares a difference in between men as well as women. Honestly we substantially wouldnt know what I'm we do until right prior to a show.

You grew up in Brooklyn, as well as in a final couple of years have changed out to Long Island. How did that passing from one to another start we as well as your comedy?

Well we do not know if it influenced my comedy, though it certain as ruin influenced my capability to parallel park!!!

Ok, given a pierce to LI didn't start you, how did flourishing up in Brooklyn start your clarity of humor?

That's a great subject as well as if we give me a half hour I'll give we a great answer...Ok, flourishing up in Brooklyn we meet alot of characters as well as those characters turn your friends. You lend towards to grow up with people who have a same kind of amusement as we do, as well as a longer we have been with those people, a longer we have to undiluted that clarity of amusement because we lend towards to feed off of each other. we do in truth credit flourishing up in Brooklyn, being rather responsible for a type of amusement we present, that we have been told is utterly odd as well as rather different. Make sense?

Yes completely! So, what have been your predictions for 2008?

Hillary Clinton becomes a first ever female president, A-Rod leads a Pittsburgh Pirates to a World Series, as well as we eventually change a address upon my drivers license. *Frank's answer was prior to A-Rod entrance back to a Yanks.
