I have remained true to my deepest convictions.

I mean the courage of those who are born to be defeated, the weaknesses of the strong, and the tragedy of misunderstandings and missed opportunities, which I have done my best to treat as comedy—for otherwise how can we manage to bear it?

When you wrap up your self-worth with your talent, and suddenly you might not be the most talented, that's really scary. And I think that fear is in part why I turned to comedy because I had no expectations of being a comedian. It was exciting to get good at something where I wasn't afraid of not being the best.

That's what I think works the best, and what I think makes the best comedy - something that's completely committed and more approached as an acting exercise, as opposed to being worried about whether to be funny or not. The comedy comes from the context.

I thought The Big Short deserved a nomination because Adam MacKay is one of the best filmmakers.

The best version of comedy is when you can get to an issue where, at some point, you're not firmly on one side or the other, and you can see both sides. The more we become about the issues, the more successful we are.

I think the best kind of comedy is the least self conscious.

I think if you just sort of let the comedy happen without the elbow nudge, did you get it, did you get it. I love straight face comedy or subtle - relatively subtle comedy.


The two things I understand best are stand-up comedy and martial arts.

And those things require an ultimate grasp of the truth. You have to be objective about your skills and abilities to compete in both.

Improvisation is almost like the retarded cousin in the comedy world.

We've been trying forever to get improvisation on TV. It's just like stand-up. It's best when it's just left alone. It doesn't translate always on TV. It's best live.

Once it didn't happen, I realized it wasn't the best version of my comedy.

Never regret a day in your life: good days give happiness, bad days give experience, worst days give lessons, and best days give memories.

I think the best comedy is tragicomic.

Yeah, I suppose if you were to look at everything I've done, there is a bit of a black streak through all of it. It's not deliberate: it's what makes me laugh, and there's a fine tradition of it, especially in Ireland.

Working with David Gordon Green, and Jonah Hill, and Michael Cera, and Drew Barrymore, and all of those people - those are the best people in comedy to work with. Anna Faris. You know, that's my goal, to keep learning and to just keep working with the best people I can. And yeah, we do all hang out, and we all kind of know each other.

The best way to do comedy is to not filter yourself, and then you could always fix it later. You want to be able to push the envelope.

The best comedy is where you attack the strong, not the weak.

And you know, whether it's drama or comedy, the best work is based on truth.

Best comedy quote If you want to be good at something, you must first be willing to be bad at it.

I had to write a comedy set and film a show at the same time.

And it's the second time I've been up on stage as a stand-up comedian with untested material. I was saying it out loud for the first time that night. It didn't go how I expected, but in the best possible way.


I came from the Groundlings Theatre in L.

A., and there, you're guaranteed to at least try something out in front of an audience. At 'SNL,' only the best stuff gets picked, and it's taught me a very defined language of comedy. You learn the structure of a joke, which is not something I was very good at beforehand.

I realised that all one really had to do was just observe.

Observe and slightly exaggerate, and you had comedy. Instead of creating a mythical premise for a stupid joke, I found playing off truth got the best result.

I believe that people, more often than not, act with the best possible intentions. And when they don't, that's funny to me. That's why comedy ends up seeming cynical, because you're talking about the gap between what people say and what they do.

One should not associate with controversy;

one should always reach for the highest ratings; one should never forget that there is safety in numbers; one should always remember that comedy, adventure, and escapism provide the best atmosphere for selling.
