I've never set out to write a funny movie or be a funny comedian as a woman. I am a woman. I don't really have a choice in the matter. My goal is just to be funny.
Before I had children, everything about my life was devoted to Saturday Night Live.
I don't know if comedy is a male sport. I always wondered that.
I really love laughing.
I've met people who are baffled by children, as though they were never children themselves.

Most of my life I didn't feel very normal. There's definitely been some moments where I feel like, all right, I've finally graduated and I'm a normal lady.

Lord knows I had what you could call many fashion Don'ts in my day.
