I wish I could give you a lot of advice based on my experience of winning political debates. But I don’t have that experience. My only experience is at losing them.
I very rarely came across rude or disrespectful people. I don’t know how I slipped by all of them but I honestly can’t think of one experience off the top of my head that was like that. I’m sure they’re there but I’d have to think really hard to recall them.
I think we’re the only jokeless show on television. I mean really we have no setups and no punch lines. It’s not a joke show. There are funny lines and funny moments but again the comedy is born of the human experience and awkward pauses are a great part of what it is to be human.
I think we are a product of all our experiences.
I think on-stage nudity is disgusting shameful and damaging to all things American. But if I were 22 with a great body it would be artistic tasteful patriotic and a progressive religious experience.
I think it’s easy for people to assume that fame is equal to glory but it can be a very isolating experience.
I think I have a tendency to look at things subjectively rather than objectively when I reflect on my experience.
I started thinking about joy. Everything in our society is so purposeful. Let’s bring joy back to the experience.
I started off on stage because it was the only work I could get. I haven’t been back for 11 years. I think any stage experience is good experience as far as being an actor is concerned.
I raised five children. They all have different personalities. All of them have different issues different levels of success. That was a learning experience for me.
