People forget what everything was like back then, ... I was wondering how I would go over since I was so openly queer. Some clubs wouldn't let me do open-mike night (in New York). I couldn't do the gay thing (and this is just 14 years ago.) Fortunately that feels like a thousand years ago. Everything has changed.

People don't call Chris Rock a black comedian, so I would like the same respect.

I'm almost your hometown girl, ... I lived in Ridgefield Park for 10 years and I love coming back to Asbury Park.

I wanted to be Arlene Francis.
