Hi, Sarah Silverman. Al Martin here. It’s been a long time, we haven’t spoken and uh – I noticed your video on the internet yesterday and um…the quality was real good…but I can tell you that uh…the content was absolutely false…you see when you are going to tell a story on the internet you should be truthful…and the truth is…that you were not booked on that show, in question, that evening…you were a guest spot who came in with Todd Barry. Todd Barry was a booked spot that night. And at the end of his spot he received his pay…you did your guest spot, left; you started talking Todd outside, I guess you found out he was paid. Assumed you should get paid. Then you came back to me and asked me for pay. I felt bad. You were starting to get some stuff. Uh…on T.V. And I didn’t want to have a bad relation with you…so I decided to give you some cab fare. Apparently, you misunderstood that, to say that I pay women less than men which is a totally unsubstantiated charge.
My wife is a woman – here’s a bulletin for you! My wife is a woman. And I’d be very upset as a teacher that works long hours if she didn’t get the same as a male in the same job.
My daughter works for a company and if she didn’t get the same pay as a male, I’d be pretty upset.
As a matter of fact, Sarah…I have three daughters and I have a mother and if she didn’t get paid as much, I’d be pretty upset as well.
You know our Comic Community, Sarah. There’s no way that I can get away with paying men more than paying women.
But if there’s a guest spot, basically the rule is: it’s a guest spot. I didn’t ask you to be on that show 15 years ago…and if I would of asked you – I would of paid you what the other comics were getting paid on the show.

So here is the fairness of it Sarah, its not a gender gap…although I think it’s a noble cause, but at the time it was a talent gap. You were not on that show that night but Todd Barry was.
So, lets get the cause right. Now if you’re talking equal pay for women? I think that’s a great cause, because as the father of daughters, as the son of a mother, as a husband of a wife…all women. I want equal pay for women and it’s a great cause.
But don’t make me your door-mat in this cause because it isn’t true.
By the way, if you’d like a spot at the club next week, I’ll pay you – as long as you book it in advance. Have a good day.
