“Being completely honest about yourself.”…”I’ve always done it but I never thought it was edgy.”…”You can talk politics, you can say ‘I want the Pope to eat my balls’, ‘Jesus lives in my ass’, you can run around and say ‘nigger’ if you want to as a white person and couch it in something that enables you to say it so you can feel the juice of saying it. You can do all that shit, but that’s not edgy. What is the edge?”…”Because it’s not even something I aspire to. I realise that the power of somebody saying ‘I need help’ is a lot more threatening to somebody than hearing ‘Jesus lives in my ass’.”…”But to express your heart, and to stay in it, and make it funny, that’s more of a risk for you and for the audience.”
From the 200th episode of the WTF podcast when Mike Birbiglia asks him, “What is edgy comedy these days?”.
