A fellow who has a funny bone can learn to hone his skills, but I don't think you can develop a funny bone – you either have it or you don't. And by the way – when you get it, we don't know it.
Everybody wants to laugh – you know that. They need to laugh… people need to laugh.
A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.
I think that comedy really tells you how it is. The other thing about comedy is that – you don't even know if you're failing in drama, but you do know when you're failing in comedy. When you go to a comedy and you don't hear anybody laughing, you know that you've failed.
Comedians are really writers who don't have pens and pencils about them, but they riff.
