I wasn't classically trained as an actor; I wasn't pursuing standup comedy. I really came into it through the back door. And there was a benefit to that, I think, because I wasn't pressing; I wasn't pushing.
I'm something of a foodie, I guess, and I'm a big Chinese food fan.
I worked a lot on 'Conan' as an actor, and when I moved to New York, a lot of my friends were on the first staff of that show. I started doing bit parts, which was the first thing I'd done on camera in front of a live audience.
It's physically hard for me to work. I start to break down, physically. My joints start. I get weepy eyes. I don't sleep well. I was never a hard worker, I guess. So the voiceover work ethic is really great for me - couple days a month, two hours a day.
It's mainly been the case where I do very few live action roles - not out of choice but more out of not getting asked.
I remember on 'Dr. Katz,' there was no script really at all. There were just scene outlines.
I worked in restaurants, and I worked in the Cambridge Public Library.
