I was a funny kid, a natural performer. When I was 10, the Fuller Brush salesman would come to sell brooms and mops, and I'd make him hysterical. But I lost my confidence somewhere in the hideous teen years and pursued other things. I ended up becoming a high school English teacher. I was nearly 40 before I realized I was always the funny one at parties. I started doing a little stand-up, and things took off. So I believe that people should do what they loved to do when they were 10—the age before you start caring what others think.
