“You learn timing on the road. You learn structure and how to read an audience. You learn so much about the business of laughter that you can’t learn on a set, because it’s all on you. Sometimes you bomb, and you know not to tell that joke again… You just hope people find the humor in the awkwardness.”

“There are so many things to talk about between black people, Hispanic people, white people, gay people, men, women, it’s all based on fear. We all have fears, this thing that stops us from embracing as we are one. We are never going to be one. People are messed up, but humor lets us see how ignorant we can be.”

“I’m the most inappropriate dad. I curse in front of my kids and their friends. I let my kids watch R-rated movies. I’ll walk by the movie theater and say, ‘Let’s go see that,’ and my kids will say, ‘No, it’s rated R. It’s not appropriate for kids.’ I’m like Uncle Dad. We have fun. I don’t live with them, but I drive over four days a week.”

“I don’t think of myself as a comedian, but as an artist, a scientist and chemist who just happens to be funny. I started doing stand-up to add another level to my game. I feel that I’m a young rookie with a veteran’s skill.”
