I’ve been a comedian since I was fourteen. But I’ve never really been a CEO.
Stand-up is the kind of gig that’ll show you where you’re at.
My generation is under-entertained.
The higher up I went, the less happy I was.
I love being famous – it’s phenomenal.
I’ve done 10 or 11 pilots for network television, which is ridiculous.
I love my jokes.
I don’t care if I ever work in TV again.
Being famous is great, it’s not like bad or horrible or anything.
I love Ohio.
I got real important relationships in my life that are very empowering relationships.
There’s a lot of people who don’t want anything from me but to laugh and have a good time. You see them at the show and they like – they dress up to come see your show and stuff. And they pack these auditoriums and it’s a lot of fun, man. It’s like, this is how I started, and it’s still fun for me.
I still think people do have racial hang-ups, but I think one of the reasons I can joke about it is people are shedding those racial hatreds.
My wife asked me once if I weren’t a comedian what I would do. I couldn’t answer the question. I never imagined doing anything else.
The only thing harder than leaving show business is coming back.
