So, my friend Jodi sent me this great review of her show today, and I am so happy for her. And right before that I sent some of my friends I perform with a note reminding them how much I love being around them. It was nice. Friends are the most important thing you can have in life. Because even if you "make it," you will still feel lonely sometimes. (Right, Ellen?) I mean, let's say you're famous, and you want to share a pizza with your buddies... what if the only person around is your bodyguard? That's not gonna be any fun. Because first of all, you and your bodyguard probably aren't the best of friends (and if you are you have lost all touch with reality) and second of all, he's gonna eat most of the pizza. That's just not cool. You've gotta have your good friends around who know how many pieces you like and what toppings you want and when to pass the garlic sauce.
That reminds me of a fantastic joke by Robert Kelly about pizza. I won't recreate it here, but if you live in NYC, go see him live. He is hilarious.
Friends. Can't live with 'em... Can't live with 'em. That always ruins things. But it is good to have them next door.
