Boston comics really go out for the kill, and I learned a lot from that. They really grab you by the throat and throw you down. One of the first things I remember was going into the club and watching Tony V. This is when he was heavier, he'd get on stage and he'd say, "I know what you're thinking. Doesn't he look exactly like Valerie Bertinelli?" It takes two seconds. First off, it's like, "Wow. He's hanging himself out there." But, in two seconds, you go, "Fuck! He does. He looks like a fat Valerie Bertinelli." I literally laughed for minutes.
