“Fans are people who let an actor know he’s not alone in the way he feels about himself.”

Jack Carson

“People will always laugh at somebody else’s discomfort. But they only laugh because they have suffered the same indignity themselves or known darn well how it feels. Being a comedian is almost like being a doctor–the more troubles you discover and understand, the more gladness you can bring to an audience.”
