Personal Quote:

I don't really tour. I'll do three show here, three shows there. I like to not go too long not being in front of an audience. It's like the Tin Man in 'The Wizard of Oz' not being oiled. The more you don't do something, the rustier you become. If you do a show once a year, you're going to walk out there and just worry about lines. See more »
