Subject: Why the show is successful
You guys are always talking about not knowing why the show is successful and you say you can't figure it out. I think I have discovered the reason: your laughs. Each of you has a distinct laugh, and they are all very contagious. Clo's cackle that interrupts what he is saying and makes his dialogue less intelligible than an Indian man on LSD, Alphie's incontrollable high pitched shrieking that leaves us wondering if a lung is going to come out, your belly laugh that assures us that there is no faking going on, and Russ's asthma attack laugh. The only one is Jerry, but I guess he doesn't laugh because he is busy plotting who he will kidnap next.
Sometimes when the joke is funny, but not funny enough for a LOL (just for you Russ), and one of you starts laughing, I laugh out loud too. Russ has always said you talk to the person on the other end of the radio, and you all do; we feel like we are there with you.
There are so many times that you guys have helped me get through tough times (long multiple day road trips, death of pets, difficulty with work, etc.) that I wanted to thank you for what you do.
P.S. I no longer need reading material in the bathroom; I put on RussMartin.fm and I'm free like a bird.
Keep it up!!
