I got into Kiss before I got into anybody. The first thing I heard was 'Detroit Rock City.' I heard it in the school library, where I lived.
Turns out, there's not a lot of information about pickles on the Internet.
I've played D&D for years. I'm a comic book guy. Comic-Con in San Diego is nerd Christmas for me.
I'm doing a pilot for Comedy Central with the band Steel Panther. They're faux heavy metal. They started as kind of a tribute band out here, or a cover band, and they're funny guys, and they just sort of morphed into their own thing.
I had seen other comic friends of mine go to indie labels. Like David Cross and Pat Oswald went to Subpop, and Subpop didn't make total sense for me, but the metal version of that did. So I made a small list with Metal Blade, Prosthetic and couple of other labels, and Relapse was one of them.
I love writing. It's one of my favorite jobs. Of the things I get to do, I love sitting in a room and coming up with ideas, and I love going home and pounding them out.
A lot of the traditional sitcom stuff I did - I think I could have gone that route when I was younger as a staff writer, and I just didn't want to.
As a comic, I used to know more about pop culture.
I feel very lucky that I've been able to carve out any niche at all in this business. It's so hard to get into.
I have tried to be more relatable, but I won't be relatable to everybody.
I just felt like I'd rather listen to even the worst metal song more than most current pop music.
I think too much during my day-to-day life; I'm the guy who worries about everything.
I tried playing the drums, and I could play 'Boys Don't Cry' by The Cure.
I try to hit all the places Guy Fieri visits in every city I go to. It's, like, something a 60-year-old would do.
I wanted to be a vet before I got into comedy, but then once I found out how much gore goes into that job, I wanted nothing to do with it.
