“I approached the comedy through character, not just aimed straight for comedy.”

“I’m a performer. I’m an artist. I like becoming other people. I like playing characters. I’m not Famous Person on a Famous Journey.”

“I need to challenge myself, and grow as an artist, and it just…something shifted in the matrix, literally.”

“You are never going to fail if you stay true to your own goals and purposes.”

“Be the most rebellious version of yourself, which is to not listen to what anybody else thinks you should be doing, or thinks they know who you are, because the only person who truly knows who you are, and knows what your goals, and your purpose in this world is YOU. And you have to stay true in that.”
