  • Proud of the Work that We Do

    “The majority of funding for our work comes from the federal and state government, not the county, so we’re not a burden on them.

  • “Confidence and intelligence.”

    “What does it take to make it as a comedian?” “Confidence and intelligence. You’ve got to have those two things, first and foremost. That’s the foundation. If you’re really funny but don’t have the confidence, it’s not going to go over well on stage. I mean, you can be funny on Twitter and not be […]

  • “What makes places special? Small, family-owned businesses.”

    “There’s a detective novel that I like called ‘The Last Good Kiss’ and in there, there’s a character — I think in a bar — who says ‘eh, it doesn’t matter where you live anymore, everywhere’s the same.’ I think my whole career is trying to disprove that.
