YOUR STAND-UP IS BASED ON EXPERIENCES YOU'VE HAD. IS YOUR LIFE REALLY THAT HILARIOUS OR DO YOU HAVE TO EMBELLISH TO MAKE IT SOUND GOOD? My standup is usually more along the lines of observations about what I'm going through — such as a bunch of friends having babies, frustrations with dating, etc. Sometimes I tell a "crazy story"-type bit and those are true.

YOUR COUSINS HARRIS AND DARWISH HAVE BECOME HOUSEHOLD NAMES TO FANS OF YOUR ALBUM,INTIMATE MOMENTS FOR A SENSUAL EVENING. HOW HAVE YOUR RELATIVES DEALT WITH THEIR SMALL AMOUNT OF CELEBRITY? I don't know if there's been much to deal with. I was hoping Harris would get a limited edition Cinnabon named after him, but that has yet to happen.

YOUR PENCHANT FOR FOOD IS WELL-DOCUMENTED. WHAT RHODE ISLAND DELICACIES ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO TRYING? CLAM CAKES AND CHOWDER? HOT WEINERS? I gotta do some Googling and see what's up, but that sounds interesting.
