I'm standing behind a wall of jokes. You don't know about my personal life, my girlfriends, or what I do when I'm not on the road. There's this guy, this comedian, and this is how he thinks, but people really don't know anything about me.
I don't get up, get dressed, go out, and think, 'Okay, I gotta find eight jokes.'
My favorite book is anything by Kurt Vonnegut - he's my literary hero. I got to meet him several times, which was a great thrill for me. I don't really remember what we talked about.
It usually helps me write by reading - somehow the reading gear in your head turns the writing gear.
