I personally don't believe people really grow. They just learn stuff when they were a kid, and hold on to it, and that affects every relationship they have.
If you're on Twitter, what you're saying is, 'I'm important enough for you to care what I think.'
When anybody pays you to be creative, you're very lucky.
I started doing '30 Rock' and started writing 'Mystery Team' at the beginning of that. While I was doing 'Mystery Team,' I started practicing stand-up. While I was doing stand up, I got 'Community.' It's like I planted trees six years ago, and now they have fruit.
We put stereotypes on ourselves. Everybody does that. But I think it's just a little harder for black kids to just be who they are.
I have an obsession with books about kids with Asperger's syndrome.
I felt like high school for me was like a big whirlpool of me trying to figure out what was OK for me to do.
The thing about stand-up was, I was doing all this sketch and YouTube stuff where I was not being censored and I got to do my own thing, and it was really cool.
Also, I realized a lot of kids are listening to me. Whether I want to be or not, they're looking up to me.
Black men struggle with masculinity so much. The idea that we must always be strong really presses us all down - it keeps us from growing.
Careers very rarely are a waste of time; jobs usually are.
I try to be me to the utmost.
The only reason I'm able to do music is because I'm making money on 'Community.' If I wasn't, I couldn't pay for things.
Twitter does have an effect on everything - things you put out there, they are out there for good.
I call 'Community' the best day job in the world, because between takes, I get to write music. I get to write sketches. I get to write movies. It's the best job ever.
