I’m a ventriloquist.
I like playing with people’s reactions. But I don’t want them. I want them to come up with their own reactions. The most important thing, if you don’t want to do it, is to let them come up with their own reactions first—and make sure that they come from a place of being funny.

You’re going to make them your brothers.” That way you don’t have to go through your friends, and it’s just a group of people you care about.
“When we work together, there’s a comfort level because he’s just talking about one thing—the things he likes.”
I remember the first time I worked with a man who didn’t speak the language. I’d spent years talking to a foreigner and they wouldn’t speak the language. And he just wanted to talk about movies. He didn’t want to talk politics, and he said he was interested in the same things I was. And it turned out that we went to the same high school. I knew then, because I’d spent years
