Some suggestions for you :

I'm cool as a cucumber, baby.

It's an absurd world - you know, billionaires in Birkenstocks. But I'd rather have nerdy tech guys as the next Carnegie than oil tycoons.

I'm definitely not frowning on improv; I mean, I've been doing it for years. I just think that there's some styles of comedy that warrant a tighter pace.

I'm not saying that comedy has to be a certain thing - I'm not trying to define comedy, where it's like, it can only be silly things. But I think part of what makes a comedy is that at least part of the mantra of the show is trying to make people laugh.

I would never say that girls and their bachelorette parties are tame.

I still like farts. I still think farts are some of the funniest things.

I just grew up liking computers and stuff like that. Mainly cool stuff, like video games.

I'm a total pessimist.

There are lot of people I'd wanna work with, but Wes Anderson, I would just wanna sit down with the guy. If he would ever put me in one of his movies, that would be the end.

It's pretty surreal to be doing a show on HBO with pals.

I have a fairly pragmatic view on all those bullies that came before, because everybody makes you who you are now.

Both the benefit and the terrifying aspect of standup is when it's going poorly, you've only yourself to blame. There's no one to bail you out. But when it's going great, all that approval is for you.

At the end of the day, I want to play characters that interest me.

Chicago was where I realized that improv is its own thing, its own art form. And through that, you kind of develop a work ethic of not selling it short.
