Yeah, there really is a magazine called Punchline.
Anyway, this interview is a promo for Nick Di Paolo’s first Showtime special, airing April 30:
P: Why has it taken so long for a Nick Di Paolo hour special to surface?
DiPaolo: Because the people in the industry are dumb fucks. They’re too busy looking for, you know, for the next funny chick or funny gay guy. I’m just another white guy in the mix.
And there are certain networks who – and this is just my opinion – you know what their politics are and they certainly aren’t what my politics are. HBO? Come on. You know what I mean? (…)
Have you seen any conservative comics on there since? You gotta ask yourself why. It’s pointy-headed, fuckin douchebags. (…)
P: You mentioned unions; and that’s one of the things I’m becoming more conservative about. I would love to get your overarching opinion on contemporary unions and what they’re all about and if it’s working and if not, how are they not working?
DiPaolo: To quote the bit I do on the special, I’m sure they had a place 50, 60, 70, years ago when we were chaining a woman to a fucking loom for 18 hours without a shift break so she could make umbrella handles… but now people want $200 an hour to put a bumper on a GM car, you know? Fuck you. We’re going to bankrupt the country ‘cause your kid needs dental? They’re fucking ruining the country.
