Quote of the Day
I've done a great job at being universal in my stand-up, which is why, for 'Let Me Explain,' I toured all over the world.

My mom was in a punk rock band called The Trash Women, and they toured and all of that. She had me when she was 17.

I think having toured the world and seeing many places, I've just been blown away by how we've really scarred our home. I'm as guilty as the next person if not more so. I travel a lot. The damage we do to our planet is huge.
