Hey, Denis Leary here. Do what you do best and ask me anything!
My new book is out now “Why We Don't Suck: And How All of Us Need to Stop Being Such Partisan Little Bitches” (https://www.amazon.com/Why-We-Dont-Suck-Partisan/dp/1524762733).
If I miss any of your questions, come ask me live on my book tour: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/authors/17027/denis-leary#events
Bc it made me a very rich man.
Your speech in Demolition Man: How much of it was the script, and how much was you?

I am trying and failing in quitting smoking right now - any suggestions or advice so I don't go postal on others or slip up?
Please keep smoking.
I'm pretty convinced that we won't progress as a nation until we stop clinging to the two-party system where there's always an "us" versus "them".
Do you see a path to NOT SUCKING that doesn't involve a 3rd/4th/5th party to shake up the establishment?
yeah its called Mars.
Do The Job, Rescue Me, Sex and Drugs and Rock N Roll, and Sirens all take place in the same universe?
no. totally separate universes. only common thread is lenny clarke...and me.
I know you’ve laid off the cigarettes, booze and drugs, but does their cousin coffee still come around?
Denis, thank you for doing this AMA. Huge fan since No Cure for Cancer. I've always wanted to ask if you really had to remove the Bonanza theme in the later tape release because of song rights?
I couldn't never tell if it was glitch or covered up. Your entire body of work since then is just amazing. Glad you never took the early sitcom offers to be the angry neighbor or some shit. Keep up the good work. Fucking ignore the Hicks haters. Like no one's ever picked up something before.
Yes we did.

My wife and I have an ongoing dispute -- she think there is bad blood / ill will between you and Jon Stewart, and I think it's just the rapport you two have. Who's right?
Our rapport is build on bad blood, grudges and the inability to stop hanging around with each other.
Biggest downside to fame Denis? Other than wanna be comic's always laying bad jokes on you...
Having Jon Stewart be famous at the same time.
I loved Sex and Drugs and Rock n Roll! Will there be a 3rd season?
no there will not be a 3rd season.
No never - just binge watch the 7 seasons over and over again.
How do you feel about the statement "The Ref is basically 'Shut the Fuck Up by Dr. Denis Leary' from No Cure for Cancer"?
