GLENN: Let's go to Rick in New Jersey. Listening to us on WPHT. Hello, Rick.
Caller: Hello, Glenn, my friend. Thanks so much from a retired Air Force master sergeant, thanks so much for the opportunity to see you at the theater last night. I was in Hamilton, New Jersey, the theater was probably about 85 to 90 percent full, very interactive. I can't thank you enough. I do have one complaint. Love you, my friend, and am a firm follower of you. At one point during the show you wiped your sweaty brow and face and your chiselled jaw on a little white string that was there for about two minutes and I just wanted to scream at the screen, come on, man! Wipe it off! Somebody!
Glenn: Can I tell you something? I have heard this from people all morning long.
Pat: That had to be a good look.
Glenn: It's in high definition, which
Caller: Oh, it is.
Glenn: What was the experience like with the high definition?
Caller: The high definition was fantastic, but, I mean, that white string was like a neon sign just pulsating, you know, and finally you hit your tie and it fell off to the ground and then at one point you had another little white speck. So, I don't know. The handlers need to make sure that you are towel is lint free or something.
Glenn: Do you know what I need? I need flesh colored towels
Caller: That would work great.
Glenn: I could have pink towels, because that's as flesh color as I get. I'm just kind of this I never get tanned or anything else. I just I'm just this little kind of awkward pink paste
Pat: Sort of pasty.
Caller: Oh, my God. Glenn, it is a wonderful opportunity for me to speak to you. You have to do this again, my friend. You definitely have to do this again because it was great. The crowd there at Hamilton was into it. We were shedding tears. We were screaming. We were clapping.
Glenn: Is this the first time you've ever seen anything that I do on stage?
Caller: It is the first time I've ever had the the opportunity to see you on stage and I can't thank you enough.
Glenn: I have to tell you, that I did an interview this morning with WFLA in Tampa and they said, I just want you to know, you might see him on television or listen to him on the radio or whatever, but, really, stage is really the place that he's good. I said, okay. All right. Thanks, Jack. But it's always a surprise when people come to the shows and last night 350 theaters all across the country in movie theaters and I think Michael Moore felt a little gurgling someplace in him going, Huh oh, a conservative has broken through the shell and is inside the complex now. And all the things that I heard from people, this is what I was most concerned of, that people would go and it wouldn't be you wouldn't feel the camaraderie that you feel when you're at the live show because the audiences are different and it empowers you when you feel that audience and we feel it every time we do a live show, this show in particular, but apparently from everything that I've heard from the people that went, that they felt that comradery. It is, by the way, going to be available on DVD. We'll give you all the information on that as we get closer to that, but thank you, thank you, thank you, America, for coming last night.
