It's funny how we 'do' Christmas. Christmas is not something that we do, it is something that was done. It celebrates the long awaited arrival of the Messiah, Jesus Christ. We had nothing to do with it, but what we can do is praise God for the coming of the Lord, who washed away the sins of the world by dying on the cross.
I don't like forcing comedy and people just trying to do things just to find a funny beat all the time.
It's funny, in literature no one ever goes to the lavatory.
I love nerds. Comic-Con junkies are the tastemakers of tomorrow. Isn't that funny? The tables have turned.
The tricky thing becomes: Do you know yourself well enough to then portray that on screen? And for me, I find that really hard. I'd rather hide behind accents and funny walks.
All the religions are super funny to me.
I liked Lady Gaga's meat dress. It was funny.
I don't really have a type of guy I like. It's just like nice guys, cute boys I mean, ones that are funny.
My persona has always been what a man was never supposed to be. Outrageous, gregarious, crazy, silly, funny.
We all know funny people who can't get it down on the page - even funny writers who can't get it down on the page.
Every time I do something silly, it comes off really funny because it's natural.
People often can't separate, or can't understand, that to be funny is to be serious; it's a way of pulling people in and not scaring them off. I think a lot of the funny stuff, underneath it, there's a deep anxiety going on.
The whole point about laughter is it's like mercury: you can't catch it, you can't catch what motivates it - that's why it's funny.
A comedian's body is funny as well as his mind being funny, his whole personage is funny.
Everything I buy is vintage and smells funny. Maybe that's why I don't have a boyfriend.
My studio, nicknamed 'Funny Farm,' is in a hidden location. It's very private. Not only do I create my photography there, but it is also where I write my books and create music.
I was the class clown at school, but at home, my family wasn't very funny.
On 'The Simpsons,' I will say that we definitely like to comment on what's going on in the world, and we try to be funny. If we can figure out a way of being funny about it, then we've gone part of the way of accomplishing our task.
The trick is always to write in pairs because if at least two people find it funny, you've immediately halved the odds of it not being funny.
And I like to keep whatever is mine remaining that way. It's a funny little game to play and it's a slippery slope. I always say to myself I'm never going to give anything away because there's never any point or benefit for me.
You have to make a lot of sacrifices, and the main thing you have to sacrifice is your privacy. It's funny because when I was growing up, my daddy was and still is an insurance agent in our home town. He couldn't go anywhere without somebody recognizing him or needing something from him.
I need to be cheered up a lot. I think funny people are people who need to be cheered up.
It's funny how people who ain't never been down there can think that America is so fair and that we should be alright. It's funny that the people who have their foot on our neck are telling us, 'Get up. What's wrong with you?'
The funny thing about advertising is that it's not a zero-sum game... Historically, in the digital ad world, pie has gotten larger and it's possible for everyone to win, and it's perfectly possible that will continue to be true for quite some time.
The easiest time to be funny is during a fairly serious situation. That way, you can break the ice. It's crazy, but even at funerals, people will get huge laughs.
