  • The Comedy Store in LA, it's a really loose room and it's really dark and creepy and a great place to explore your own thoughts onstage.

  • I had seen movies before that that had made me laugh, but I had never seen anything even remotely close to as funny as Richard Pryor was, just standing there talking.
  • Dick Gregory was a great comedian who went and got arrested, did hunger strikes, protests. It never hurt his career to be outspoken.

  • Being a celebrity or anything else where you're really ambitious, it's really a game to see how successful you can get.

  • Apartment living is tough action. Just the whole idea that you share a washer and dryer always freaked me out.
  • I talk so much about sex that girls just want to meet me.
  • The only time I commit to conspiracy theories is when something way retarded happens. Like Lee Harvey Oswald acting alone.
  • I really never had any ambitions to be a standup comic. I was talked into it by guys that I used to work out with.
  • When someone comes along and expresses him or herself as freely as they think, people flock to it. They enjoy it.
  • If someone plays a brooding actor in a film, people think they're brooding all the time.
  • Have you ever talked to someone, and you're not even really talking to them? Actors are the worst for that.
  • I had a great time on News Radio, I got to make tons of money in relative obscurity and learn a lot about the TV biz and work on my standup act constantly. It was a dream gig.
  • It never hurt Lenny Bruce's career to get arrested for swearing. It did back in the time, but he broke those doors down by doing the stuff that he believed in.
  • Comedy is really not like any other art form in that it's very specialized and varied in it's content, but generic in it's title.
  • I don't care if you're gay, black, Chinese, straight. That means nothing to me. It's all an illusion.
