'Sag Harbor' was a very different book for me. It changed the way I thought about books that I wanted to do.
What I would do is when I was younger I would draw in a sketch book something that happened in my life and then write a little something on the side about what happened or what the story.

I think a book is your calling card, your business card.
Let's just say that I don't think our show has very much in common with the book any more.
The Carrie in the plot was too much like the Carrie in the book. She smoked, she swore a lot, she was very hard, very cynical. I could never have pulled it off.
The book is called 'Thanks for Nothing' and it's really the story of how I got into comedy and traces back every strand in my life that is relevant to that story. It's kind of an autobiography but isn't, as it stops about 25 years ago. It goes right up to the first time I do stand up.
Your own experience keeps taking you towards something. My book adds the hope that it's a better something.

I've always been an avid reader. If I don't have a book in the car, I'll stop and pick one up just to have something to read. I don't even remember learning to read.

Every song has a composer, every book has an author, every car has a maker, every painting has a painter, and every building has a builder.
