Hollywood's just not funny. You walk around and think 'Where's the funny at?' It's not there - all there is is a bunch of directors and actors walking around. I like going into a diner and meeting real people. Funny is where the real people are.
Every comedian has a moment in his life when he realizes he's a little bit different from everyone else. It's like being the only guy in a movie who sees the ghost. The ghost talks to you and you talk to him. Then you turn to your friend and say, "Hey, Do you see that ghost?" And he says, "What ghost?".
There are only three things women need in life: food, water, and compliments.
Yeah, I love being famous. It's almost like being white, y'know?
Funny is only something that others know about you - you can't be funny by yourself.
If I find a comedy club where no one's camera works, I'll go.
When I do stand-up, I'm basically doing a one-man show.
