We had the pleasure of seeing him years ago in NO. Great act, we were in the 3rd row and weren't given the ponchos the first and second row were. Yes we were ducking watermelon all night!
He was one of the few comedians that didn't have to curse repeatedly in a live performance. Unlike Howie Mandel, saw him years ago and every other word was cursing. Quite a few people walked out of his performance.

Bob Hope quips from the Tonight Show 12-12-1975
Tough crowds in Chicago, Ciscero
They did not applaud if they liked you but instead they let you live.

During intermission they would reload.
They put tomatos on the end of Yo Yo's so they could hit you twice....

I spent ages trying to see my GP to show him the rash on my buttocks. When I finally got to show him, he ignored me and continued to push his cart around Costco.

This article is about the Veyron, which has more expensive wheels & tires than the Chiron but still...
Talk about BTD!!!

Find Out Why The Bugatti Veyronís Tires Cost $42,000 Per Set
It takes a lot of engineering to go that fast.
Bugatti Veyron Tires
Oct 14, 2020 at 1:05pm ET

By: Chris Bruce
In addition to the seven-figure purchase price, maintaining a Bugatti Veyron is also very expensive. A set of tires alone costs $42,000, and a new video from Donut Media explains why this rubber comes at such an astronomical price.

The Veyron uses Michelin Pilot Sport PAX tires that are bespoke for the Bugatti. They're like no other rubber on the road. For one thing, the company glues them to the wheel. This adhesive requires replacement roughly every 18 months to ensure a good seal, regardless of whether the owner is even driving the Bugatti. Plus, an owner needs to get new wheels roughly every three tire changes.

The Bugatti's tires are also massive. It has the widest rear rubber ever, measuring 14.4 inches.

The PAX part of the name refers to Michelin's run-flat system that puts a polyurethane-and-rubber insert between the interior of the tire and the wheel. If a puncture occurs, this piece is able to support the vehicle and let it continue driving.


All of this tech is necessary in order to cope with the incredible forces that the Veyron's tires have to endure at high speed. As the velocities increase, there's more friction, which results in the air inside the tire heating up, thereby increasing the pressure. At top speed, the tires are fighting against 5,442 Gs of force, and they can only withstand this for 15 minutes before failing.

The $42,000 tire change is just the start of the crazy prices for maintaining a Veyron. Changing out all the fluids runs owners $25,000. If you ever need to replace the fuel tank that costs $20,000 and an additional $22,000 in labor to put it in.
