"I'm not that good at telling jokes. It requires patience, and I am not a very patient guy. I believe in telling a funny story. If you lack confidence in your joke-telling expertise, just tell something funny that happened to you. And keep in mind that comedy, in the end, is the building of tension followed by its release. In many ways it's like…sex…except I'm much better at sex than telling jokes. At least I hope so."
— Lewis Black, comedian and actor (Man of the Year)
