    "You might recognize me, I'm the fourth guy from the left on the evolutionary chart."

    Who is your comic inspiration?

    My favorite comic was a fellow named Jackie Vernon. He was sort of rotund to look at, but as far as comedy he was an oddball. He made me laugh. As a youngster I was watching comedy. I liked Leonard Barr, who was supposedly Dean Martin's uncle. He was about 6'8" and weighed 90lbs. Those two and the great Buster Keaton were inspirations.

    When did you know you were funny?

    It just happened a few days ago! Really, just a few days ago, based on the stamp that people are now putting on me.

    What was your worst stand-up gig ever?

    I did a Showtime at the Apollo outdoor rap concert and I had things thrown at me. Soda cans etc. The show was in the real 'hood and I was doing off the wall jokes. Legendary comic Ralph Cooper had to cover me with his raincoat! Another time, I was doing an act in a bar in Redhook Brooklyn, on the waterfront. These guys kept saying "your motha" and other things under their breath. They just kept badgering me. It was one of the few times I lost my on-stage persona and a little Mike Tyson came out!

    Tell us a little more about yourself - hobbies, annoying habits, pet peeves etc.

    Sometimes I don't look like the cleanest guy, but people who litter bother me!

    I really don't like his one-liners nor do I like his caveman look.

    He just doesn't seem to have much to say when he's not onstage.

    Take my wife, please!

    You know, slamming a car door shut on your hand really hurts.
    Well, don't do that then...

    For my birthday I got a humidifier and a de-humidifier...I put them in the same room and let them fight it out...

    I put instant coffee in my microwave oven and almost went back in time.

    The food on the plane was fit for a king. "Here, King!"

    What is the difference between Michael Jackson and a grocery bag? One is made of plastic and is dangerous for children to play with.... the other is used to carry groceries.

    Frankly I love this kind of stuff if the DELIVERY is right. It's ALL in the delivery for it.

    See? Another great one liner.

    It's an aquired taste, but not everyone can aquire it. The people who hate it may NEVER love it.

    Rodney Dangerfield. ANOTHER king of one liners. How could people hate one-liners inherently with a guy like Rodney around?

    It's been a rough day. I got up this morning ... put a shirt on and a button fell off. I picked up my briefcase, and the handle came off. I'm afraid to go to the bathroom.

    When I was born, the doctor came into the waiting room and said to my father, "I'm sorry. We did everything we could, but he pulled through."

    My wife made me join a bridge club. I jump off next Tuesday.
    And the ALL TIME Rodney classic...
    I'm so ugly; when I was born the doctor slapped my mother!
    GOOD one liners, especially well delivered are timeless. Except for those which are about Edsels or Hair Permanents or how big Milton Berle's private parts are or something...

    I love his one liners, but his interview answers just don't seem all that interesting.

    i don't really care for Jay - his act, or his looks. I was very surprised that he got into the house. (can't remember her name ...... but i thought the black chick was WAY funnier than Jay, and some others that are in the house)
    OH WELL.... only time will tell who will prevail
    AIWANNABE - love your new avatar - she's awesome !

    One liners are great... but this guy bugs. I don't think he'll be around for too long.

    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.

    I think he's different than anyone else in the house. While I didn't like him at first, he's slowly growing on me. I don't know if he'll get to the final 5, though.
