I got my lines at midnight, and I knew them by 6 a.m. The nature of working with comedians, though, is that they never know their lines. [Laughs.] My daughter was 13, and she came out of the trailer and went onto the set with me, and she whispered to me, “Papa, you’re the only one who really knows your lines… and you didn’t get your lines until midnight! What’s with these people?” And I said, “Well, this is kind of how it works with comedians.” And she said, “Oh, I think this is just too random for me,” and she went back to the trailer. But I had a good time.
I like pressure. Pressure doesn’t make me crack. It’s enabling. I eat pressure, and there might be times when I get a bad feeling in my gut that this might be too much, but you feel pressure when you’re not doing something, you know? When you’re getting ready for something, you feel pressure—when you’re anticipating. But when you’re constantly in activity, there’s no time for pressure to just sit there and make you crack.
