Personal Quote:

I do have a lot of violence in me, though. It's usually directed against objects. When I'm angry I may throw or kick something. But the last time I kicked something I almost sprained my toe, and when I threw a bottle, it smashed all over me. I really shouldn't do those things. See more »

Trivia:

Had a number of absurd and varied jobs in his youth. These included being a kitchen hand, message boy for an advertising agency, jazz musician in clubs, greyhound racetrack tipster, and an assistant to an Indian fakir in his side-show acts. See more »
