There’s a great myth about cartoonists, writers and people that are on TV.
I believe that if you don’t want to do anything, then sit there and don’t do it, but don’t expect people to hand you a corn beef sandwich and wash your socks for you and unzip your fly for you.
You’d better get your laugh while you’re making your point, or you won’t be doing it very long.
Imagine – four years you could have spent travelling around Europe meeting people, or going to the Far East of Africa or India, meeting people, exchanging ideas, reading all you wanted to anyway, and instead I wasted it at Roosevelt.
I will not play tug o’ war. I’d rather play hug o’ war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs, Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug, Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins, and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins.
Never explain what you do. It speaks for itself. You only muddle it by talking about it.
I know a way to stay friends forever, There’s really nothing to it, I tell you what to do, And you do it.
I myself do not believe in explaining anything.
Stand-up comics reflect less of a visual humor and more of a commentary.
Tell me I’m clever, Tell me I’m kind, Tell me I’m talented, Tell me I’m cute, Tell me I’m sensitive, Graceful and wise, Tell me I’m perfect – But tell me the truth.
