The idea of trying to write sketches the same way we did on Saturday Night Live every day would be damn near impossible.

Any good actor has to have a good sense of humour, too; they have to be able to manipulate people.

A laugh is a surprise. And all humor is physical. I was always athletic, so that came naturally to me.

The best comedy I ever did was when people didn't know who I was.

I was a young, new, hot star, and I had this unbelievable arrogance. As time went on, the strident narcissism and arrogance slowly diminished. But I was definitely there. I'm older now. And a big crybaby.

I did very well when I was younger, and I am fine.

I come from a much freer kind of performance thing, where I rely on my own improv and my own sense of humor.

Every Vacation movie didn't just make the studio money. They each made the studio a lot of money.

I'm going to give you a little advice. There's a force in the universe that makes things happen. And all you have to do is get in touch with it, stop thinking, let things happen, and be the ball.
