Quotable Quotes:

"I always wanted to be a Vegas comic, and that's what I am. Las Vegas is the entertainment capital of the world -- if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. Although I'm not a devout actor, it's nice to be able to do movies and TV, too. I want to be the second banana who works all the time. The ultimate for me would be to stay home and do a TV series for 13 weeks and then go do my nightclub act." (IMDB)
