Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1Bill Hicks is a huge influence. I love him.
2I really don't work a whole lot as far as touring, but I do stand-up every night of my life, no matter where I am.
3Here's what I tell people now when they come to my shows: 'First of all, thank you for stimulating the economy, or at least my economic package.'
4I grew up in Florida and went to school there, and ended up going to University of Central Florida.
5It's funny... you can make fun of AIDS or Haiti, but if you make fun of some starlet in Hollywood's looks? That's like the one thing... the line you are not to cross.
6I go to the dentist every six months, I get a cleaning, so... I'm fortunate enough that those fluoride treatments as a child worked. Not getting any cavities.
7I have no idea why people want to watch puppets be the slightly meaner version of the weirdo holding them. It's beyond my comprehension.
8Instead of dumping all my money on an independent film that nobody would watch and most people would make fun of behind my back, I decided, 'I'm just going to buy a house.'
9I don't know, maybe I'm immature, but I still find it funny if I dump cold water on my girlfriend when she's in the shower.
10I don't know why I get away with some things. But I'm not a misogynistic, racist person. Yet I do find those jokes funny, so I say them. And I try to say everything kind of in a good spirit.
11It's not a stereotype if it's always true.
12I really don't work a whole lot as far as touring, but I do stand-up every night of my life, no matter where I am. It's really made the touring a lot less grueling.
13It's the ultimate pinnacle of stand-up to have an hour on HBO, but way more people see Comedy Central, and they've been good to me.
14The great thing about Los Angeles is that you can get so much money in this town by constantly failing. You can get a lot of television deals that don't go anywhere, but you still get paid.
15I actually got a part in 'The Love Guru', that Mike Myers film. I heard it's awful. I got a Razzie award for it, which I'm quite proud of, but I still haven't seen it. I have no plans to branch out.
16[on a girl that he was dating] She says that I always correct her. And I tell her "How do you think it makes me feel, knowing I'm dating someone that's always wrong?"
