I think that at the end of the day correcting misinformation and questioning what we think we know as a habit of mind is incredibly important.
I have a vested interest in increasing the amount of diversity in my own business. That's something that I care about. So mentoring people who are trying to break into the business who could use a hand, that's the type of person I look for.
I went to Bard College, which was a really interesting synthesis of a hippie school and a serious academic institution. It was really the perfect spot for me.
On 'Adam Ruins Everything' we do the broadest sketch comedy possible. We do stuff where you can see it immediately and know it's a joke - characters in big silly costumes; here's Uncle Sam and he's twiddling his fingers saying, 'Oh, I'm naughty.'
One of my favorite things about sketch comedy is doing parodies and music videos.
I can't think of another place other than TV where a five-person sketch comedy group could make a living.
