I never felt like I fit in anywhere and that's fine. Now I just adapt to everywhere I go. This led me to what I do today. I'm a standup comedian. I never thought that I would go in that direction. It just happened. It was a natural path. I think a lot of people who are on the outside growing up end up being in the comedy world. You can't be really funny unless you know what it is like to be really sad. I think that is a Phyllis Diller quote. The lows are low but the highs are high and that makes it all worth it.
I have one stuffed animal that was very important to me for many years. His name is Harold. He is in the closet. We moved a lot as a kid and the transition was hard which lead me to grab onto him until I was around 14. I got sick a lot as a kid so he went to doctors appointments with me.
I also have a Grover stuffed animal. He's behind the bed.
