1. When you hear the old shibboleth that “women don’t have a sense of humor” or are “less funny than men,” your immediate response is___________________.
If men's humor is the standard, I don't want to be funny. Take it; take all of it. I don't want it anymore.
2. Were you funny as a kid? Were you funnier (or less funny) as teenager?
As a fine wine gets better with age, I get funnier. (Which I guess is more like cheese if left out on the counter.)
3. What’s the most notable way your life would be different if you didn’t have your sense of humor?
Dating. I could never do it. With anyone. Ever.
4. If you could have a magnificent dinner with three women—real, fictional, mythological—who would you choose as your guests?
Karen Kilgariff, Natalie Wood (NOT the famed actress, but the L.A.-based streetwear entrepreneur), and Janelle Monae. I want good looks and badassery to rub off on me while we polish off a six-course meal. 5. Do you think those closest to you admire you for your sense of humor—or despite your sense of humor?
My sense of humor, like flypaper, is what trapped them in the first place and is what keeps them sticking around.
