Sitcom food is by far the tastiest of all showbiz food.
I grew up in North Carolina, and I grew up on wrestling.
I always just loved to laugh. I always just loved it as a kid.
I’m definitely a people pleaser. I like people to be happy around me and be comfortable. I go out of my way, sometimes to a fault, to make sure everyone is okay.
I really realize the more movies I do just how important – it’s so cliche when people say it, because everybody says it nowadays – but it’s so important to keep it grounded. I totally understand what that means.
You just can’t take the doctor out of you.
I’m not lying, every single project I’ve done, they’ve all been great.
I went to Duke, which is… a Top Five school. Not community college. But whatever.
I wasn’t sued out of medicine, I wasn’t arbitrated out of the profession.
I have a very simple approach in career: You work with the people you love.
I’m very blessed that I have such a supportive wife who is secure with letting me embarrass myself.
It was my wife that insisted I do ‘The Hangover.’
I think everyone’s different but in comedy, I try to do my scene to make the director and the other actors laugh. If I can make them laugh and we have the same sensibility, then I’m on the right page.
I think I’ve been asked just about every question under the sun. I’m just really honored that people are even interested in asking me questions.
When I finished my residency in New Orleans, I went to L.A. where I would work as a doctor during the day, and then at night I would actually go to The Improv and do standup, all the while kind of cultivating my comedy resume.
