And the tube is coming out to meet the plane As soon as the tube touches the plane All of a sudden... The door... On the opposite side of the plane Pops open And a
man in a suit gets on And he walks over to the three of us And he does this... And I'm sitting there freaking out like Oh my god, this is like the movies! And they pulled us off the plane And they escorted us to this area called VIP baggage claim And it sounds kind of cra... VIP? And I get there I realize oh They're serving cookies and candy and coffee And there's leather sofas And it's really nice And there's nothing but Middle Eastern businessmen there okay? And they're
all talking about me I don't understand Arabic But everyone in this room understands when someone's talking about you The guy's looking at me and he's like... I'm sorry but this...

Come come. Come! It is you, come come, come, we go And I went oh, ok cool. So we grab our
luggage And we followed him outside to the curb They have three Lincoln Navigator SUVs waiting for us There's three comedians, and there's three cars We're so paranoid that we're in the Middle East We all get in one car We're sitting in there And we take off We're heading towards downtown Riyadh ok? Now all I know... Up to this point about my experience is that I've already been paid My flight's been taken care of And I have a point person Who I'm supposed to
meet at the airport Who's not there So I'm talking to the drivers Excuse me sir, where's this guy? It is ok, I take you to him... Is ok... Is ok is ok Uh... ok... And for me it's not okay, because I researched

Saudi

Arabia

And you know... You think the rules in Singapore are strict The rules of

Saudi

Arabia

are very, very different, ok? And I don't want to offend anyone And I want to make sure that I don't say the wrong thing So I need to know, you know? Some... Some... I
need some info! So I keep talking to the drivers Um sir, would you mind helping me with some questions? Whatever you need, you ask. I tell you. It's okay... It's okay, it's okay Um... I apologize in advance If i come across rude, or disrespectful Or ignorant but um... How do you guys know about me here, in the middle east? What do you mean how do we know? Yeah, how do you know that I'm a comedian? You have comedy central, or HBO... or Showtime? What is that? That's a no,

the city And I'm like, ahem... Excuse me? Where are we going? We are going to the show I go um... It says here that we're staying in
the city Yes you're staying in the city But the show is somewhere else That doesn't make sense... Why would you have the show somewhere else? How come you don't have it in the city? And then he broke it down... My friend... Here in Riyadh, it is very different ok? Your type of entertainment is forbidden... In the city There are people called religious police that... Hold up the traditions They keep it so that it is very traditional It is not allowed, the social gathering is a no no
We must go somewhere secret... In the desert Alright um... So how many people are you guys expecting at the show? It's a little between seven to eight hundred people That many? I told you... Number 2! And sure enough you guys, we pull up to this racetrack In the middle of the desert And there's a... There's a giant tent set up next to it And there's... There's 800 people, roughly There for a comedy show And as soon as we pull up... As soon as we pull up Radio's start
popping out And I keep hearing on all the radios

Saudi

Chocolate cake! A guy in the front... Make fun of me! Hell no... And the people started laughing The women were laughing just as hard as the men, you know? Granted, some of them I couldn't see But for the most part it's like... And I'm not trying to be disrespectful, you know? They're laughing... Moving and laughing I even had fun with one of the girls I said Oh, I saw your neck She said, you're going to get me in trouble The

Saudi

s had such an amazing sense of humor... They
were laughing and carrying on And I had no idea that they were going to be like that And then after the show I got a chance to meet some of the locals And one guy was almost in tears He was so emotional...

Alright man, go ahead... Ok, very nervous, very nervous Ok, here I go Ok, here I go... Two Jews... Walk into a bar... Not in my country! Man, you're gonna get my ass arrested bro We wound up doing shows all over the Middle East We were in Riyadh, Bahrain, Dubai, Qatar, Doha... And each show, you
guys, was more amazing than the last show Not because there were so many people But because the people were friendly They were fun They got all the references I couldn't get over that I honestly thought that they were gonna be like the people

from

Fox News And I felt terrible I felt terrible because I was judging them I was prejudging them And I thought they were going to be a certain way And I felt bad because all those years People were doing that to me Not really giving me a chance And I
was over there doing the same thing... I felt so bad And then when I met the prince... I was still judging 19 years old And he's a prince I thought he was gonna be a brat He walks up to me And I was already like, what's up?! I failed to realize... That he's a prince And he was brought up to be a prince The way he carried himself... He intimidated me in about 18 seconds Ok, I'm 36 And I meet em, Wassup?! And he's like... Jibril Scuse me? Jibril Jibril?

Gabriel

I understand
that your name is

Gabriel

But in the arabic language, your name is Jibril I was welcoming you, in our language Oooohhhhhh..... I'm a dick And I started already imagining what was gonna happen I am so sorry I'm so sorry And he was so nice you guys He was like, I want to thank you For coming here to Riyadh And doing all of these shows It was so beautiful to see everyone having such an amazing time

From

the little children in attendance All the way to the elderly people with a cane Everyone
had an amazing time... Everyone It was beautiful, ok? Beautiful Religious people... Laughing Religious police... Laughing They don't laugh at shit I want you to understand how big this is There was an American here Entertaining people

from

Middle East There was no violence, no bloodshed No problems Everybody was smiling Everybody was getting along It is possible An American was here... An American was here He kept saying American... American, American Freakin' ten years being called a
Latino comic I had to go all the way around the world to finally get called American I was excited! I was like, say it again American! And then I had the most surreal conversation I have ever had with a person... He looks at me and he says I want to thank you for everything... I want to invite you and your friends to come to my palace So that I may entertain you I'm like, Are you freaking kidding me...? I am not getting invited to a palace by a prince Oh my god Up until this point, my
only experience with royalty Was a Burger King drive thru All of a sudden, one of those SUVs pulls up And a guy jumps out in a suit And I guess his favorite word was please Cause that's all he said... Please... Please... Please... Please... Please... Please... Please... I'm like, are you kidding me? There's a man in a suit trying to get me in the back of a Lincoln Navigator And there's a prince inviting me to his palace I'm not gonna lie... I felt like a hot chick I was like,
oh my God, let's go Hurry up bitch, let's go! We get to the front of his palace, you guys I'm not gonna lie It didn't look... like a palace The walls are really high... There's barbed wire around the entire property... And there's two guys in the front with machine guns I'm looking at this and I'm like This doesn't look like a palace And I started thinking... What if I'm on some messed up episode of Middle Eastern Punk'd You know what I mean? You
thought you go to palace, you to go prison, you're Punk'd! Fortunately, the doors opened up And we drive in And then they closed And when we got outside, you guys What we saw was amazing Outside... Desert Inside... Palm trees, bushes, shrubs, a pond And he had exotic pets I know exotic pets Because I know what I have Over there... He's got a tiger! Freakin zebra... Monkeys And he had a freakin boa constrictor I'm like, are you kidding me? Snakes, monkeys, a zebra and a tiger...
Oh my god, that makes me Kung Fu Panda And I started thinking What if he decides to keep me? It sounds messed up But let me explain As an American, you cannot just purchase an airline ticket To go to

Saudi

Arabia

You have to be invited by a person of power, you know? When I left Detroit to go over there I had to fill out a form that says I understand that i'm going to

Saudi

Arabia

And should something happen to me... One of those things on the list being Kidnapping Conveniently right above
Death America is not responsible The Prince could have actually... "You're mine" Two weeks later... Now he's showing someone else around, right? That is my snake, that is my zebra That is my Mexican... That is my tiger... Keep me inside of some little box that says Jibril But it never happened... And we're walking around And I actually pulled him aside for a second I said listen uh... I gotta tell you something Well you tell me I... I need to apologize What did you do? I
didn't do anything... I just want to apologize... For coming here With the wrong mentality I says unfortunately I thought that uh... You know, because it is the Middle East I thought you guys were going to be rude And everybody's been nothing but nice Ahhh? I know I didn't think you guys were going to speak English so well and And understand, you know, so many references and you guys get everything Ahhh? I know! I thought you guys were going to throw rocks... But you were funny...
What? Never mind... 2 out of 3 So we're walking And he's showing me this and that And I'm just kind of like looking around, I thought it was great And then I saw something that freaked me out We're walking in the direction Of a giant cage And when I saw the cage, I stopped I was like uh... Uh... What's with the cage? Take a look Great... So I walk over towards the cage And I look inside And I notice that there's birds in there And I was like ah, ok, cool. It's a
birdcage He got all offended That's not regular birds... Those are falcons I go ok, you have a lot of falcons We use the falcons for hunting You hunt falcons? No no no no no... Each falcon is very expensive 100,000 US dollars They are trained We go out and we shoot a little animal And we send a falcon to retrieve Would you like to see? No no no no no no... I got little dogs, I don't wanna... Bye Bruno Before I know it, here comes the other guy Please... Please... Please... And he goes
inside the cage And he puts on this leather glove that comes up to his elbow And he starts getting one of the Falcons I'm watching him do this and I noticed All the Falcons are on these purches about this high And there's about 15 in a row And they all have hoods... Covering their eyes And I asked him Why do they have hoods on their eyes, man? They look like little hostages Shit! I'm sorry bro I'm sorry I meant no disrespect by that man... Seriously No disrespect... It was a slip
And he was cool I understand Middle East... Hostage... So the other guy comes out And he's got a falcon with him And he's got a glove And he hands me the glove And I put it on... And he transfers his Falcon to my arm And uh... All of a sudden, he starts doing snapping things And he's basically showing me that the Falcon's trained And I thought that was great I thought we we're going to kill something I'm like nooo, but we were just playing with the falcon And I started
getting excited, you know? And the more excited I got, the more the Prince started showing his age Cause then he got excited I'm like, this is great It is great Yeah this is so cool So cool I'm like God, you're so lucky to have so many falcons I am so lucky Would you like a falcon? So matter-of-fact, like... Would you like a cookie? Would you like a falcon? Same way! I'm like, are you kidding me? Don''t give me a falcon that can retrieve things Shoot, you think I'm
lazy now... Hell no Don't give me, oh no uh uh I wouldn't even leave the house I'd be at the front door... Donuts And who the hell is gonna watch my Falcon when I'm up here performing? I I can't leave it with my buddy Martín in the back You know he would abuse it Take it to some nightclub Try to hook up with it... The red head
