When I’m working, I’m pretty busy with that, but when I’m not, yeah, I like to make music. I sing in jazz bars and stuff, and then I mainly paint every day.

Politeness and civility are the best capital ever invested in business.

No amount of money can replace the kind of happiness and satisfaction I derive out of writing.
I always stayed away from political commentary. First of all, I didn’t feel entitled. What I may feel about a candidate, I’m a comedian. I mean, if people like my comedy, that doesn’t mean they should vote for the person I like. That’s why I always kind of stayed away from endorsements.
