Plus, I get some stagefright just doing a skit or play; Throw a couple of drunks and hecklers in there and I'd wet myself. Seriously.
    Unless you were one of the drunks when you walked on stage. now THERE'S an Idea.

    No. At best, a writer.

    I'm the funny one in my circle of friends. My shtick is to make odd, detached observations; it's very Mitch Hedberg. I don't think I could make it work on stage.
    Hot news just in -- Michael Jackson has a new album coming out. That's right, folks, it's called [pedophilia joke].

    Never said I wasn't. But I write funnier than I speak. I'm witty, at best, in person. Good for making women laugh and not much more.
