Comedy is a man in trouble. And without it, there’s no humor.
I have some very personal feelings about politics, but I don’t get into it because I do comedy already.
Every day is a surprise. There are confirmations of an interconnectivity and synchronicity which inspire, titillate and confirm the inherent comedy of the universe.
Just put down 9/11… I think, on most things I’m liberal, except on defending ourselves and keeping half the money. Those things I’m kind of conservative on.
You know there is a problem with the education system when you realize that out of the 3 R’s only one begins with an R.
It’s just, you can get very complacent if you do the same thing all the time and especially the comedian, it gives me you know different things to react to and respond to, and it stimulates me.
It’s a lot of work to put a brand-new monologue and a brand-new show on the air and find comedy every single day. It’s challenging and it’s the hardest thing I have ever done, but it’s the best-suited thing for me. The more relaxed I get and the more confident I feel, the more I get to play and be myself…
Ive predominantly done comedy over the years.
Comedy is still alive, and there are still funny people. Jews are still overrepresented in comedy and psychiatry and underrepresented in the priesthood. That immigrant Jewish humor is still with us.
