  • When you're first starting out, you want to keep making good movies. When you're young and you're black, you do a bad movie and you're through.
  • I will always do stand-up, even if my acting career takes off. Stand-up is my life.
  • I think real life reflects your movies. In your life, you pick stuff that influences what movie roles you wanna pick. I think if you've got an interesting life, you wanna do interesting movies about interesting things.
  • I tell people that stand-up's like golf: you gotta do it every day to get it down - or at least three times a week to get it down.
