“I didn’t ever really set out to be a comedian,” the Jersey City native said. “All my life, I wanted to be an actor. I grew up doing plays in school.” He recalls imitating television commercials.
When he was around sixteen or seventeen, he started going to New York and doing television commercials. “I never really wanted to be funny. I thought I was going to be the next Robert De Niro.”
Then, when he was around twenty-five, he moved to California where he was told that his Jersey accent was funny. So, he started doing stand-up at clubs which led to acting jobs. “There’s no greater high than a live performance,” the comedian says.
