“Don’t be afraid to fail. You’re going to go on a million auditions, and most of them you won’t get. It’s very easy to think, ‘This is not going to work for me,’ but keep at it. It’s very generic advice, but you have to be willing to keep yourself in the game.”

“I do two cups of coffee with a little bit of raw sugar and soy creamer, and then I do a bowl of plain oatmeal with walnuts and blueberries. Now, if I could do what I really wanted to do with my life, every morning I would have a salami-and-cheese omelet with hash browns and a buttermilk biscuit – and pancakes. But my heart would explode.”

“I feel like we’ve already seen the burger truck, we’ve seen the lobster-roll truck. There’s even healthy-food trucks now. But a big thick-pizza truck? Come on, man. That’d be amazing.”

“I take my dog to the vet a lot because he’s old and sick, and I always step on the scale when I’m there. Let’s just say shirts that were once button-able are no longer. I’m constantly being roasted by my wife.”

“I used to teach improv courses in Amsterdam where we would do team-building exercises, and they can go south very quickly.”

“I want to have a food truck that would just be bathrooms. I would line it up in back of the other food trucks, and I’d charge $1 for use.”

“I wanted to be a senator from Illinois. I was obsessed with politics. My dad was friends with a lot of local politicians, so I would hang out with them on Election Day and hand out buttons. Somehow, even though they were opposite, I loved Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. I thought they were the coolest guys!”

“I went in and auditioned for one of the main guys for ‘The League’ when it was first casting, and I was so excited because I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is my life!’ I love fantasy football, and I play with my buddies, and my wife is frustrated with it.”

“If I was a condiment, I’m gonna go ahead and say I would be Sriracha, because I go well with other things. I’m too much for some people, and hipsters like me.”

“I’m a big crier in general. The right life insurance commercial will take me out for a couple of days.”

“I’m a huge fan of ‘Eastbound & Down.’ It’s one of my favorite shows.”

“I’m more scared of parking by a parking meter than vampires because one of them is real and adversely affects my life and results in a $35 fine, and one is nonsense.”

“It’s OK to argue with your friends. Guys can do it better than girls, usually, but if you ever get into a fight with a true friend or a spouse or a boyfriend, get it out, fight, be angry for five minutes, and then move past it. Don’t let it fester; don’t hold a grudge. If you do, that’s when it will get worse and worse.”

“My celeb crush is Julia Louis-Dreyfus. She’s hysterical, she’s beautiful, and she seems like a normal person. I’m in love with her.”

“My very beloved and deceased third-grade teacher, Cliff Kehod, was the one that I really remember calling me Ike a lot. It just stuck. It is a dog’s name, but I love dogs.”

“Out of the 72 kids that I went to high school with, I still talk to 25 of them on a fairly regular basis. Seven of my classmates live in L.A., and five of them are in the entertainment business, and we constantly talk and play fantasy football together.”

“Right away when I got to college, I realized that being a politician sucks. It’s really hard! It wasn’t for me. B.J. Novak is convinced that I will run for mayor of Chicago at some point. He begs me to do it. It’d be a tough gig, but I was always very attracted to the idea of helping people and trying to make the city a better place.”

“The first two years I was on ‘MADtv’ were really, really fun. We always thought it was ‘Saturday Night Live’s very nice, slightly asthmatic, shorter cousin.”

“There’s nothing like taking two flights when you have a horrible hangover. It’s bad when people can see actual alcohol seeping out of your disgusting pores.”

“We decided we don’t use the term ‘fat’ for me. We use the term ‘juicy’ for me. My wife’s fine with it, but the rule is when I’m over double her weight, it’s over.”

“Whatever you want to do in the industry, do it on the smallest level at first. If you want to be a writer, write a screenplay in your house. If you want to be an actor, put on a one-man show. If you want to be a stand-up comedian, go to an open mic.”

“You don’t want to have to come into work on Monday already apologizing. I try to save my apologies for what I’ve done later in the week.”
