Q. What career would your parents have chosen for you?
A. My parents would have chosen the career of me being married to a Jewish Dr. and the career of having all of his children. And I guess they would have also been happy for me to be a Dr. Lawyer, or Rich Business Woman.

Q. Have you ever tanked onstage?
A. Oh have I. My Biggest Bomb was when I was 19. I had just won a big contest in Boston, BOSTON'S FUNNIEST COLLEGE STUDENT, and part of the prize was a headlining spot at Nick's Comedy Stop. My entire family was there, and all of their friends. Maybe I was nervous, young, stupid, -- but the bomb still hurts to think about. SILENCE --- dead horrible SILENCE the whole time. So embarressing. Painful.

Runner up:

STITCHES, 1992. Comedy Competition. I had done mushrooms and smoked a ton of pot, and my friends were like "Oh you can do it, you'll come down, and be great." I believed them, like an idiot. I had not come down, and tanked, and then who got on stage? DANE COOK. And then he exploded. I went on to do more mushrooms.

Q. Everyone's a geek in some way. What kind of a geek are you?
A. I love Young Adult Fantasy Novels, Sci Fi Movies, and Comic Books. I am not ashamed.

Q. What song is trapped inside your brain right now?
A. All Of My Days by Alexi Murdoch
Weapons of Mass Destruction by Faithless

Q. What will you do with yourself after the fall of civilization?
A. I will do all the drugs and eat everything until I am so morbidly obese I just explode.

Q. What is your greatest memory from your time with Live at Gotham?
A. When Jeff Ross said I was The Gay Chick that looked like Patton Oswalt. Awesome. Really just terrific.
