Personal Quote:

I made my living in comedy but I'm not a silly person. I've got all these sides to me. Even in my movies that I've written myself, the characters sometimes border on great anger or nutsiness or other kinds of behavior. I'm not just doing fart jokes for two hours. See more »


Changed his last name from "Einstein" because there was already an extremely well-known theoretical physicist named "Albert Einstein.". See more »


Always casts himself in the lead role of his films as a nebbish weisenheimer. See more »
