Did You Know?
When I first started, I really decided to be a comedian, so I underplayed the banjo. I didn't want it to be a music show, I wanted it to be a comedy show. I subordinated the banjo and the music because I didn't have anybody to play with. It was just me. And music always sounds better when you've got some other people.
Is an accomplished banjo player and appears playing the instrument in Earl Scruggs
and Friends video for "Foggy Mountain Breakdown," for which he won a Grammy for Best Country Instrumental Performance. This makes him rare in that he has won Grammies for both comedy and music.
(During his stand-up comedy days) His catchphrase was that he would sarcastically say, "Well, excuse ME!" or comedically gyrate with, "Who-oh-oh-oh-oh!"
