I realize I'm going against the grain, doing a fully produced CD of comedy sketches and music at a time when the only comedy recordings are basically standup. But it's the kind of comedy records I grew up on and ... (have) always been kind of my favorite.
If you can sit through The Aristocrats and laugh at it, you come out the other end realizing that to be made to laugh at it robs the telling of it of the power to shock and sting. It's why (word-abusing comic George) Carlin is in the movie. It's basically a lesson about words, how we can give power to words and take it back. Comedy lubricates that transaction sometimes.
We have been on the air long enough we've gone completely around from being denounced by conservative Christians ... to myself being the subject of cover stories in two Christian magazines hailing the show as the most moral show on TV, ... Inside the Actors Studio.

Bush is a frat boy in the White House but we've had that before. But I wasn't one of those people that was threatening to leave the country. By the way none of those people have left the country. Alec Baldwin is still here.
Democrats always like to brag that their guys are smarter than the opponents and Republicans always like to brag that their guys are more moral than the opponents. But if you're looking for morals in politics you're looking for bananas in the cheese department.
I'm at a little loss in terms of my Leave It To Beaver expertise, since I never watched an episode of the show - so the cast in the pilot could have been Martians or they could have been the regular cast for all I know.
My parents didn't want me to be a regular in a series. I was a working actor from time to time but they thought was a little too much being a star of a series. They wanted me to have a slightly more normal childhood.
Well Washington DC what are you going to do. They think the capitol steps are the state of the art in comedy. You try to drag them into the 20th century let alone the 21st and they refuse to come with you.
