1Believe me when I tell you I am lucky to be able to get a laugh here and there in America, And that's a constant fight. Showbiz, I will tell you, is like climbing a greasy pole. Sometimes you get to the top and slide right back down again.
2I think the black actor has a tough time being funny from the standpoint of everything being looked upon as 'coonish'.
3I'm no actor. I'm a comic who lucked into a good thing.
