The beautiful thing about acting is that you can just dive into the character, strip yourself of everything, and just get in there and perfect your craft.
People have always said I have an old soul, and all my best friends are 10 to 15 years my senior.
We are already expected to be the goodie two shoes. I went through that during my junior high schools where I wasn't allowed to watch television. I wasn't allowed to listen to the radio.
One thing about being a stand-up is it's a one-man show. You gotta do everything. You're the producer, writer, director, and the actor. You just gotta be out there and perform and give your all. It's such an honest form of art that it just taught me so much, and it kind of prepared me for manhood at an early age.
