“I’ll never forget it,” he told Jet Magazine. “I was on stage and I was dying. I didn’t really know how to do comedy and I was trying to write stuff rather than just be what I am. And I remember I cursed on stage. And it was the worst feeling I ever had. People were laughing, but I said I would quit comedy before I had to do that. … I went home and learned how to be myself. I learned that your life is funny.”
