It's not so much that I got that idea at some point, it came up naturally because of the improvisational nature of the story I was telling.

I hate it, it is tedious... when I write for my act, it is very improvisational, I write bullet points, I cannot sit in front of a computer; that is not my style.

I also thought of playing improvisational jazz and I did take lessons for a while. At first I tried to write fiction by making up things that were completely alien to my life.

My favourite comedian, of course, is Tim Conway.

He has a way about him - being that belly-laugh kind of funny, and he has the improvisational skills, too. I've never seen anybody better.

Ben was more improvisational, and relied less on methodology, and basically is a guitarist who switched to bass, whereas Jeff has a more traditional approach to playing bass in a band, and has a great sense of what his band sounds like, and we lock up nicely.

My voice is my improvisational instrument, the melody instrument.

The guitar is harmonic structure. I'm not a good enough guitarist to improvise on it.
