A comic in the hot seat

With Halloween coming, it’s time to start thinking about costumes! What do you think the front-running 2008 presidential candidates should dress up as?
Hillary should dress up like a man, because she really is a man. She could dress up as Bill. Barack is being accused of being too proper and too intelligent, so he’s not black enough. So he should go all the way and go as Al Sharpton. With the hair. All of the Republicans should dress up as real people.

Who would you rather punch in the face right now, George Steinbrenner or Kevin Federline?
George, because this is three years in a row. We need to get us some excellent pitchers. I’m going to any Latin country and bringing a boat and bringing a whole bunch of real good food, like paella and shit. I’m getting whatever they like to eat, and I’m gonna say, look, come with me and pitch.

According to your Web-site bio, you were in a male beauty pageant while in college. Any backstage tips for beauty queen wanna-bes?
Keep your abs tight, and get your Speedo in a bright color that shows off your package. Mine was electric blue.

I like your goatee, but i’m wondering what it would take to get you to rock a Tom Selleck moustache?
The big fat one? Get a huge caterpillar on my face? Shit. I think only Tom can pull that one off. Maybe if I was Shaft. I have to have Pam Grier by my side, but from when she was young, like 25, and I’d have to have that nice brown leather coat. That’d do it.

Give me one good reason to stop making fun of New Jersey.
Because it doesn’t stink everywhere, just by the turnpike! Leave us the fuck alone.

    We have a chub for Andy Barker, P.I. (just released out on DVD), because we have a major chub for the show’s star, Andy Richter. Richter plays an accountant who is mistaken for a detective-for-hire and decides to just roll with it.

    If only there were some way to watch a con-artist houseboy give his cougar sugar mama a squirming reach-around, charm the pants off a candy-necklace string of countless empty-eyed Hollywood stick figures, lose his heart to an untouchable social chameleon, and, in the process, find himself .

    While New York is grittier, Los Angeles juicier, and Boston is wicked smahter, for some odd reason it is Montreal that, for two weeks every summer, becomes the epicenter of the comedy universe.

    Warm weather is supposed to be accessorized by lackaday, by a breezy sensibility best enjoyed with a frosty tall boy in one hand, the sloppy product of a back-yard barbecue in the other. Instead, I find myself struggling to balance my beer between my knees and my overstocked paper plate on my thigh as I furiously poke at my BlackBerry.
