I put instant coffee in a microwave oven and almost went back in time.
Very rarely do I talk off the top of my head on stage. I'm not an improv guy. I'm a writer-guy who presents what he's written.
I liked school, but I used to dread those moments when the teacher would call me up to give an oral report. I forced myself to deal with it and not dwell on the class in front of me - to keep a straight face, give the report and concentrate on getting it right. That's normally how I perform. That's how I am.
I laugh all the time - at things, people, stuff, whatever. But, I don't laugh onstage because then it's serious business.
