My kind of gay, meeting a woman and falling in love, is a different experience because it wasn't anything about 'Oh, I've always been gay and I'm breaking the chains.'
Just be your authentic self because there's nothing sexier or more beautiful than that.
As a writer, the worst thing you can do is work in an environment of fear of rejection.
I suddenly had this really mad desire to have an affair with a woman. I was divorced. I was childless. I figured there's got to be one more way to really tick off my mom.
My father was a really funny guy. He lived a good long life. And he was the reason I wanted to be funny and become a comedian and a comedy writer, so to say that he's somewhat of a mythic figure in my life would be an understatement.
I'm not into working out. My philosophy: No pain, no pain.
I always say to women, 'Take advantage of the fact that you're in the minority, don't see it as a disadvantage. You're that much more unique when there's fewer of you.'
I'm always a big fan of if you approach somebody politely about something and you're not a nudge - you're just pretty honest and simple, my kind of philosophy is that I'm not afraid of 'no,' and that's way different than 'I won't take no for an answer.'
My stand-up act is very clean.
There are so many opportunities that I could've gotten before if I had just took a little more of a risk.
There were very few women comics when I started out doing stand-up. But I always saw that as a great advantage.
Obviously, at this age, I've lost people in my life. But with a parent, it's just different. I was very attached to my father and had this naive little-girl notion that he'd always be around. So I'm finding acceptance of my father's death is the hardest thing to accept.
All my other relationships with men, there was so much maneuvering and strategic decisions and stuff.
Honestly, so much of my book is about the best things in my life have happened since I'm 40.
I cried when I turned 34 for no other reason than 34 sounded old to me at the time.
