This is my friend @michelleisawolf. Her first comedy hour will be on HBO tonight at 9. I directed it. Which in standup doesn't mean all that much. It's like the same five shots over and over. Having said that, watch because she's very funny and you'll be happy to know her. pic.twitter.com/V3VEa7Pz9k

[on working with Dave Chappelle again] The relationship is charred. I don't think Dave ever wants to be in showbiz again, and I wouldn't want to work with him. We did the best thing we could have possibly done, and it still ended terribly. What else is there to do?
[on Dave Chappelle quitting Chappelle's Show (2003)] Before Dave left, things had been awful between us for a long time. Once the show became this cash cow, everyone who worked for him kind of played his ego against me and against the show. It was a very clichéd, 'Behind the Music (1997)' kind of thing - money, credit, paranoia, suspicion. It was so unnecessary. I felt beyond betrayed. I would have signed a lifelong contract with Dave. He was one of my favorite comedians, we'd been best friends for 15 years. It was painful. It will probably be the biggest personal disappointment of my life.
I'm never going to be more successful than I've been in the past two years. I have a better chance of being eaten by a shark. I'll never be famous, but I've got financial success. People in show biz seem to want to work with me. And I get to control the stuff I write. Fame gives you noise. It gives you a lot of [mimes screaming], which is fucking worthless. I have a girlfriend I love, so I can't use it to get women. It's not like Dave and I got laid because of Chappelle's Show (2003). He was married, and I'm... pale.
[asked if he would ever work with Dave Chappelle again] No. There's no chance.
Was a doorman at the Boston Comedy Club in New York City where he became friendly with Dave Chappelle and many other comedians. He did not start performing stand-up comedy until after Chappelle's Show (2003) went off the air.
Has five brothers and four sisters.
Was good friends with 'Dave Chappelle' until the abrupt end of "Chappelle's Show". In February 2012, the two have since patched things up.
Has a sister named Sheila Krezwick who is a computer teacher in Massachusetts
