Humor is a punch, you never know when to hit whom.
'Scorpion' has so much humor and so much heart and a great deal of action.
The woman who runs the Pennsylvania Innocence Project told me that there's a man she's been trying to get out of prison for 26 years. Every night before she goes to bed, she thinks, 'What is he doing?' She says you don't sleep. And yet, she has the greatest sense of humor and this light that comes out of her.
I don't think my sense of humor has changed at all; I was born with this, for better or for worse.
Short fiction is like low relief. And if your story has no humor in it, then you're trying to look at something in the pitch dark. With the light of humor, it throws what you're writing into relief so that you can actually see it.
People who know me, they know I have a sense of humor, I'm a bit of a joker, a bit of a clown really, and I would love someone to exploit that side of me and send me a romantic comedy.

I love a man with a great sense of humor and who is intelligent - a man who has a great smile. He has to make me laugh.

Most of the time, the truth is ugly and in your face! My observational brand of humor is very much all in your face!
I think humor is such a personal thing, and you put a microphone in somebody's face, they're going to say something that offends somebody.
Humor can be an incredible lacerating and effective weapon. And that is the way I use it.
I think it's part of the responsibility of an artist to shock, to upset, to make people think differently, and to surprise people.
