I love theater. To have the people onstage right there, to be working in concert with other artists, this is a like a school of fish moving together.
You know, I think whatever a comic talks about onstage is all they talk about offstage.
When you're doing stand-up, you want to stand onstage and, to the extent that you can, uncomplicatedly entertain.
My thing is to get up there and have a good time and give the fans all you can and appreciate them spending their money and being in the stands - and just be appreciative of them cheering when you come onstage.
Someday I'm going to go onstage in a dress if I want to.
But even so, I still get nervous before I go onstage.
It's the same thing now. When I go onstage the young people scream and holler as much as the older generation.
Onstage, I don't want to be thinking about my outfit, I want to think about what I'm doing, so I'll try to dress as comfortably as possible.
When I come onstage, I'm exploding.
Film acting is really the trick of doing moments. You rarely do a take that lasts more than 20 seconds. You really earn your spurs acting onstage. I needed to do that for myself. I would hate to say at the end of everything that I never did a stage play.
I love suits, but onstage it's too hot. So, I like a nice T-shirt!
I feel most free onstage. The audience, it's an abstraction. You don't really see anyone out there, but you feel the audience inside you.
When I get onstage in a play, I feel very safe, very protected, very fulfilled.
If I see a great performance on television, onstage, in the movies, I go to work the next day with a renewed energy and less fear. These great artists take me out of my life and make me want to go there.
If I had my way, I'd always be onstage. But I won't always be able to be onstage.
I design a lot of things that I wear onstage, but I'm always looking for unique stuff. I like creative things, so anything I can find at a secondhand costume shop to a Helmut Lang store, it doesn't matter - just unique stuff.
I speak onstage to try to establish some method of communication. The songs are supposed to be a way of communicating. But speech and drinks and sometimes chocolates are also a way of communicating.
Americans need to call on Boomers, in their next act onstage, to behave like grown-ups. And there is no better way for them to do this than to guide young people to lives of greater meaning, effectiveness, and purpose.
I have made stage adjustments which allow me to hear myself better onstage so that has made playing live much more enjoyable.
I loathe the idea of going onstage in a T-shirt and jeans.
It's in my blood to tour. It's in my blood to get on the road. It's in my blood to go onstage.
If I walk out onstage and I get a warm, excited response, it makes me feel so confident and happy, and then it's so easy for me up there.
Whenever I go to shows, I end up looking at what shoes the guy onstage is wearing and the jacket he's got on. And when you know everything's gonna be under scrutiny, it makes you feel more comfortable if you have cool stuff.
We played in Texas about a year ago, at Emo's, the famous country and western club in Austin. And I figured, well, if I'm finally gonna die onstage, that's where it's going to be!
The two hours onstage is great. But I can only play a show and then take a night off. I have to sing for two hours, and then I've gotta rest it for a night. So it's the other 46 hours that are just boring as heck.
