Personal Quote:

[When asked by Jay Leno if he ever worries that his insult comedy might be too offensive for the audience]: You know, every night when I go out on stage, there's always one nagging fear in the back of my mind. I'm always afraid that somewhere out there, there is one person in the audience that I'm *not* going to offend! See more »


Aspired to be a serious actor and studied drama at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts before doing a stand-up comedy. His classmates included Grace Kelly, Anne Bancroft and Jason Robards. See more »
