We need the UN, to deal with the threats to our common security from nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, not only in the case of Iraq. They must be tackled by the international community together, by strengthening conventions, treaties and agreements.
I am not doing comedy because the genre is successful. If that was the case, I would have done a run-of-the-mill comedy film. I set my own trends. I like to give something new and different to my audiences. I want to do the kind of comedy that has been missing till now.
In any case, you can't turn back the clock.
Judges need to restrict themselves to the proper resolution of the case before them. They need to avoid the temptation to set broad policy.

I play every show like it's my last. Fortunately, that's never turned out to be the case.
