When I was a kid, I went to the store and asked the guy, Do you have any toy train schedules?
It's very intense to be in front of a live audience. It's just an amazing experience. It's dangerous. Everything out there is heightened. The bad stuff is extra-worse. The silences are extra-silent. The good stuff is amazing. It's electric when you walk out there. For 90 minutes, you're on this other planet.
I hooked up my accelerator pedal in my car to my brake lights. I hit the gas, people behind me stop, and I'm gone.
I feel lucky that I can have people laugh solidly for a whole hour by just saying what I think and getting paid for it.
