“When I was in law school, people were so not passionate about what they were doing. I think that was such a bummer. But then comedians, a lot of them didn’t even finish school and, like, a lot of them are dropouts, but they’re completely immersed. They’re obsessed. They love it. It’s such a difference. It’s all desire — desire and persistence. It has nothing to do with the other stuff.”
