I have to be sensitive to the fact that I am in a big theatre this year, and kids come to my show now, so I am trying to be more vigilant about offending. I still want to be truthful to what I say, but without alienating anybody.
It was surreal, ... The audience at the taping started chanting, 'USA, USA, USA.'
It was a very scary moment, ... To get back with the crowd I scanned every file of my mind for the funniest joke I could think of. I can't think of what that joke is, but it won the crowd back. But I must say that, after the 'death to America' joke, my set got so confused.
I'm a British Iranian. That means that half of me's instinctively anti-American.... and the other half's exactly the same.
