Personal Quotes (2)

It exhausts me to think of life before comedy.
The big picture of my story is that you never know what's coming around the corner. I need to sit down, take a deep breath, and connect with where I feel there's humor these days. I could push a stool around Conan's stage for the rest of my life, but some of my other jokes..I just don't think I connect with them anymore.
