Sydney J. Harris
I'm someone who loves to enjoy life and tries to focus on real things and real friendships. That's why I live very simply. I'm a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl.

I collect old portraits. They're all just interesting pictures of people, and you just kind of wonder who they were and what they were.

The only thing I really recommend, if you're starting out in stand-up is to not try to copy anybody else. You can be influenced by people.
