Subjects include: the affiliation of actors with The Friars Club or Lambs Clubs and the origins and purpose of each, some episodes and experiences from his and Clark's professional life, popularity of parody, a few sketches with Clark, and the detriment to one's reputation for stealing material from fellow stand-up comedians.
