[on occasional moments of inspiration] I was walking around bored one day and I started filming stuff with my cellphone. There are all these shows where people are trying to do these outrageous stunts, and I thought it would be funny to do all these stunts that aren't outrageous, but then act like they are.. Again I was just bored one day, and it popped into my head, the idea of some guy thanking a robot. It made me laugh.
It was such a pleasure to work with Eugene Levy. What a treat. That's a guy I grew up watching as a kid. Guys like that, they were hilarious and didn't have to be super vile or X-rated.
[on celebrity roasts] I've kind of stayed away from them. They're a little too mean-spirited for my tastes. I find them a bit insincere. Most of those people don't know each other. If you're going to take a jab at someone, you should at least have a bit more of a personal relationship with them. I feel like you can be funny and clever, as opposed to just outright vile.
I improvise a lot, that's kind of my thing. So we'll do three or four takes the way it's written, then I let the barn doors open, and I kind of rewrite every scene on the fly..I always improvise with the crowd. Sometimes it will be a 50 percent show, sometimes 70 percent, sometimes it's almost a whole show where I wing it. It depends on my mood, the energy in the room. For sure, a portion of it is just kind of winging it.
