Personal Quote:

[on why the title of his show changed from 'Strangely Uplifting' to 'Brand X'] I have a friend who didn't name his twins for months - just called them Big One and Little One. I said, 'Look, they're going out into the world now. You're going to have to give them names'. The same was true for the show. When it was apparent it was real, we named it. See more »
