You are doingn’t see me in Los Angeles a lot. I go back home. Because I can not play the game. I can not — my fortitude — I understand I am becoming old; I Will be 50 this year. And you understand how I know I am becoming old? ‘Cause my tolerance level is low.
You understand you poor when you eatin’ breakfast food late. You fryin’ toast? At nine o’clock at night? With bacon? You are broke.I am amusing. I am a comic. I am not a clown.
