Personal Quote:

The things that make me angry still make me angry. George Carlin is 67, and he's still as funny as he's ever been, and he's still angry. And that makes me feel good, because I feel like if I stick around long enough, I'll still be able to work. See more »

Trivia:

Good friend of Mario Cantone and Gina Gershon at Emerson College. See more »
