We got to go to Lucas Ranch and, at that time, my brother was still living in a condo about a mile from Robin Williams, and so I made all of the other comics jealous because I got to get a ride home with him.
For the third season, we do a sit around on one episode where we were in character and then we commented on one episode just being ourselves, so – not really. I was comfortable, though. I wasn't nervous.
Movies, obviously, are a little more lucrative. The initial paycheck is better.
I started out with comedy in college, but had my major in Recreation Administration – which meant I wasn't going to get a real job – so I started doing a little standup.
If DreamWorks and Disney need that name to sell the cartoon and get people in the seats, that's what they need. It's not fair, but there's plenty of other work for us to do.
I used to be kind of bitter and jealous as well, but I get it. It's business.
