Personal Quote:

I think that we and the audience make a deal with the funny people we've known for a long time. Our deal is they make us laugh. I can sing. I've done Broadway shows. I can come on Dave Letterman's show and just sing a medley of songs. I can go as sincere as I want. But you'd always be waiting for the sandbag to fall on my head. See more »
