I believe I got into comedy because I was called. I'm certain I had little or no choice, exactly like Richard Dreyfus in 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind'. Since I was a child it was all I ever saw myself doing and I wasn't sure there would ever be any money in it. I just knew comedy was it and that was it.
Lately my meditations have brought be to the real reason I have been so in love with comedy and that is I'm chasing happiness. And in as much as we all chase something in our lives that's acceptable to me.
