No one was trying to blow people’s minds, or thinking, ‘Wow, this’ll (tick) them off.’ People get the impression that you’re trying to (mess) with them and it’s not true. You’re trying to entertain them.” Chase agreed in advance to give the one exclusive post-show interview to New Jersey’s Star-Ledger, which printed it Tuesday.
