The following is a transcript of part of their sets.

Cedric the Entertainer: It is nice being downtown. I mean, not, you know, completely. I mean, L.A., the homeless situation got out of hand, but I mean it. God bless them, don’t get me wrong. But I, trying to do something nice, I went in. I got the homeless dude a whole pizza one day. Came out, say, “Bruh, I got you a pizza.”

He gonna tell me, “Is it gluten-free?

I said, “It’s free but the gluten gonna cost ya now.”

Roy Wood Jr.: Money not just tight for people. It’s tight for businesses too. Everybody cutting corners. They won’t even let us get all the napkins we want in the fast food spots no more.

You remember you used to be able to go up to the napkin dispenser, put your finger in there and get all the napkins. Give me about three inches worth of napkins.

Now, they got a hook; they got the thing. You can’t get your finger around the corner no more. They got to the thing. You got to take your napkins one at a time like a magician. They’re cutting corners.

Went to the coffee shop, the sugar behind the counter. I’m supposed to be in charge of the sugar. You know, the coffee shop used to trust us with the sugar. Now, you get the coffee, you go over to the little island where you’re supposed to make [inaudible], ain’t no sugar.

Now, I got to go back up to the coffee counter looking like a drug addict: “Let me get three packets, baby. Let me get three packets. You got three packets on you, baby? Just three packets. Just let me get one more packet, baby. I’m sorry.”

“I need glucose and fructose and sucrose. Baby, I got to get all of it.”
