Like everyone else who makes the mistake of getting older, I begin each day with coffee and obituaries.
Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.
Racial humor was about 35% of my act when I first started. But I realized that it was a crutch. What brought it home was when another comedian said to me, 'If you changed color tomorrow, you wouldn't have any material.' He meant it as a put-down, but I took it as a challenge.
God has not made anything that I know of that pays so much attention to who their father and mother is as us.
