I mean, it's really a blessing in disguise because we just B.S. the whole time about roadwork,” Allen said of their working relationship.TIM ALLEN: 8 THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOWEngvall agreed with Allen’s assessment and said he understands as a stand-up comedian the work it takes to reach the pinnacle of helming your own sitcom, since Engvall also used to have one of his own.“Yeah, I love when I get called to be on the show because I think as road comics, this is the Holy Grail,” Engvall said. “Even though we gripe, it's still that when you're on stage and the audience and you are on the same wavelength and it's rolling, I don't think there's a better...”Allen would finish his pal’s thought:“A better gift,” chimed the “Toolman.”'LAST MAN STANDING' STAR TIM ALLEN SAYS IT'S 'NOBODY'S BUSINESS' WHAT HE THINKS ABOUT POLITICS“I saw [Richard] Pryor all when I first started out. I've never in my life been so amazed at what that man could do to me,” Allen said, adding that he and the “Harlem Nights” actor had become friends.“I said, 'I want to do this,'" Allen recalled. and he'd go, 'Oh, we've got to slow down a minute, this little white kid is having trouble with this.'"Allen said Pryor’s style helped shape his own and, over time, Allen developed a pace he knew could hold the audience’s attention.I've never in my life been so amazed at what that man could do to me.TIM ALLEN TO TACKLE PC CULTURE IN COMEDY AND COLLEGES AS PART OF NEW DOCUDRAMA“Because I wanted him to just give me a pause, just for a second.
