Bill Hicks is a huge influence. I love him.
I really don’t work a whole lot as far as touring, but I do stand-up every night of my life, no matter where I am.
I grew up in Florida and went to school there, and ended up going to University of Central Florida.
The great thing about Los Angeles is that you can get so much money in this town by constantly failing. You can get a lot of television deals that don’t go anywhere, but you still get paid.
I really don’t work a whole lot as far as touring, but I do stand-up every night of my life, no matter where I am. It’s really made the touring a lot less grueling.
I never want to cannibalize my act, and I’m really excited that I am going to be able to perform new material. I’m not a huge fan of repeating jokes, and I don’t really do any of my old material from old stand-up acts.
It’s funny… you can make fun of AIDS or Haiti, but if you make fun of some starlet in Hollywood’s looks? That’s like the one thing… the line you are not to cross.

Here’s what I tell people now when they come to my shows: ‘First of all, thank you for stimulating the economy, or at least my economic package.’
I don’t know why I get away with some things. But I’m not a misogynistic, racist person. Yet I do find those jokes funny, so I say them. And I try to say everything kind of in a good spirit.
It’s the ultimate pinnacle of stand-up to have an hour on HBO, but way more people see Comedy Central, and they’ve been good to me.
Instead of dumping all my money on an independent film that nobody would watch and most people would make fun of behind my back, I decided, ‘I’m just going to buy a house.’
It’s not a stereotype if it’s always true.
I don’t know, maybe I’m immature, but I still find it funny if I dump cold water on my girlfriend when she’s in the shower.
