I was just thinking about a sweatshirt I had when I was a freshman that I lost a few weeks into college. It wasn’t anywhere specific, I just wanted to wear it one day and couldn’t find it in my closet. I never found it or anything and now three years later I’m wondering where that sweatshirt is. Because it most likely still exists unless it got burnt or thrown in the trash or something. So where is it? Who has it? Has it been worn recently?
True story: I lost my Army Hockey jersey in third grade and then I found it in the lost and found on the last day of 5th grade. Still have it, somewhere…
And his advice to someone who just moved to NYC and wants to break into the comedy scene:
One, I would take some classes at the UCB. Two, the secret to the success of The State was we never waited for anyone to ask us to do anything, or for anyone’s approval to do anything. We just fucking did stuff. We were shooting all the time, writing all the time. We would put up a live show every couple of months. We were aggressive. If you wait around for an opportunity to come up, it’s not coming. It isn’t, ever. Opportunities are not coming. The only opportunities that are coming are the ones you create. Otherwise you are just waiting around.
