Personal Quote:

[on George W. Bush] I had a couple of opportunities to go and meet him, and I declined, partly out of comedic purposes, because when I was on the show [Saturday Night Live (1975)] at the time, it didn't make sense to really meet the people that you play, for fear of them influencing you. And then the other side of it is, from a political standpoint, I don't want to meet that guy. See more »

Trivia:

Was roommates with Jon Stewart during his early years on Saturday Night Live (1975). See more »
