"Past certain ages or certain wisdoms it is very difficult to look with wonder; it is best done when one is a child; after that, and if you are lucky, you will find a bridge of childhood and walk across it." —from “Local Color” (1950) by Truman Capote
“I feel like women are frequently seen as guests in the comedy world — you know, a kid sister of the “real comedians”. I like the idea of positioning myself as legendary rather than trying to fit in.
