"There is no off position on the genius switch."
"Anything worth doing is worth overdoing."
"I'm the guy on the show with the best wardrobe, so people in the audience at least know where to look. Everything falls into place after that. There is very little skill involved in it. You just have to smile when things aren't that funny. And when things are sort of funny, then you have to laugh like crazy...That's about it. Everything else is done in the control room."
