I've always been very upfront about the way I write, and I've always used the tools humorists use, such as exaggeration.
I've been keeping a diary for thirty-three years and write in it every morning. Most of it's just whining, but every so often there'll be something I can use later: a joke, a description, a quote. It's an invaluable aid when it comes to winning arguments. 'That's not what you said on February 3, 1996,' I'll say to someone.
As a foreigner in London, I like that there are so many other foreigners.
They were nothing like the French people I had imagined. If anything, they were too kind, too generous and too knowledgable in the fields of plumbing and electricity.
I love 'Glee.' I cry all the time when I watch 'Glee' because I don't know if it's satire or melodrama and that makes me feel like the writing is aware of itself, and that makes it okay to cry.

But most good movies have a gun in them.
But I'm a humorist. I'm not a reporter, I never pretended to be a reporter.
I always knew I wanted it to be illustrated.
I sometimes read books on my iPad.
I went from having 50 listeners to 50 million listeners.
I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but still I keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.
I like nonfiction books about people with wretched lives.
If I'm riding my bike I just replay the same scenarios over and over in my head, like I haven't had a new mental adventure since high school. So that's what I like about books on tape, so my mind can't wander anywhere.
Actually I liked that 'Let the Right One In,' that Swedish vampire movie.
I started writing when I was twenty, and my first book came out seventeen years later.
Sometimes I say to myself, 'Oh, I wish I could win a Tony Award', although I'm not that bothered.
I've never gone on Facebook and am not sure I understand it. The same goes for Twitter. I have someone sending tweets and pretending to be me, but I don't know why.
