Where Did You Get Your Sense Of Humor?

After every show there's always one person who asks me that question.

In the beginning of my career I had no idea how to answer since didn't my sense of humor just come from me? Modest, over-achieving, genius me? Humble, fabulous, fashion-plated me? Outrageous, over-accessorized, well you get the idea.

But over time I've gathered enough irrefutable evidence to prove I was wrong. Here's the real answer:

My Dad in the Army. This man had access to firearms.

Dad trying to strangle his 4th wife with his eyes closed. Surprisingly, he failed.


Dad with a belly dancer hired for his 75th birthday party.


I have no idea what this was about but I know bourbon was involved. In fact, I PRAY bourbon was involved.

  1. Hey! That belly dancer is ME!

    Okay, I'm lying. But I wish my body looked that good!

  2. I think I'm gonna need to see some photographic evidence that you have done these things, too, before I buy into that whole "apple doesn't fall far from the tree" thing.

    I'm sure you have some pictures lying around of you riding a rocking horse and wearing a bow on your head. Cough 'em up, Lady.

  7. Who is that with your dad in the last picture. It looks like a actress but I can't think of her name. Maybe he was her present.

    Well we share another thing, my dad is responsible for my dry wit.

  11. OMG your dad in those pics is hilarious!
    I think I got part of my sense of humor from my dad too. He wasn't really that funny but he liked to watch funny TV and movies. I don't know how many times I had to watch Benny Hill, the Blues Brothers or Animal House with him. Tells ya something doesn't it?

  13. I've been listening to a Fresh Air DVD where Terri Gross interviews comedians. Apparently Richard Belzer got funny by trying to use humor to prevent his mom from beating him half-to-death.
