NH: Well, I hope they can come along. This is why I have a new manager. Because Art, with his AA and everything, didn't have the time to do the studies where we find out if people would prefer the Christian humor to the more adult humor.
We'll go in that direction. My thing is to make people laugh. The details don't matter as long as I'm free to tell my jokes. You can take a joke about a hooker and turn it into a joke about Jesus, just by changing a few words. But the intent is there, which is to ease people's burden with laughter. I've been in this business for a long time, and I could conceivably take the whole Raw Hamburger album and rewrite it—just take a few words out here and there and make it into a Christian album.
O: Or you could just get somebody to remix your last few albums. NH: Then I wouldn't even have to record them. You know, if the record company thinks that would work, then I'm all for it. O: You've toured extensively, so you must have come into contact with a number of your fans. How would you describe the Hamburger demographic? NH: Well, it's small. There aren't many of these people. They aren't necessarily short.
You'd be surprised. I'd say they're people that love to laugh. Of course, we all do, so conceivably this demographic could include everyone. Because of the type of bookings I've had recently, I'd say it tends to be people that enjoy pizza. We have a lot of bookings in pizza parlors, and that's good, because, you know, you get a pizza in addition to your fee, and sometimes, if they've screwed up an order, you get another pizza for free, as well.
Because they'll throw it away otherwise. O: Have you ever considered giving up stand-up comedy? NH: Well, I've considered it, but it's not really something that I have any choice about. I just keep plugging along. O: Have you always known that you wanted to be a stand-up comic?
NH: I can't say that. But I knew that I was fated to do that when my psychiatrist suggested I try it as a form of therapy.
You know, when you've got two things that come together like that, you need to go for it. O: A lot of your comedy seems therapeutic in nature. Would you agree with the theory that all comedy comes from deep emotional pain? NH: Hmmm… Well, I don't really want to comment on that, because these younger comedians out there, they try to take your ideas and run with them. I just don't want to give anything away.
I mean, I could give you my opinions on that and tell some jokes of my own, and then, before you know it, I'm out of another booking. O: Are you worried about people stealing your material? NH: Well, you know, they steal your material, they steal your bookings, and they steal the limelight. And a lot of these people, you know, their ideas don't come out of nowhere. And I recognize a lot of these people. I see them in the audience at my shows, or maybe buying my records over the counter.
But you can't be too careful. I wish it weren't like that. NH: Yeah, we copyright everything. Which is part of the problem, part of the reason that right now I'm living out of a storage locker.
You've got the copyright attorneys, you've got the divorce attorneys, and you've got the managers, and they all want a piece of the pie, and when the piece of the pie is literally a piece of pie, then there's not that much to go around. I'm just glad that we've got the records, and they could be hits.
