He discussed alcoholism and Larry David: When I go on Curb I love walking in and blurting out, Im an alcoholic because it aggravates Larry everything aggravates Larry. He went on, I say it and I say it onstage and I say it in writing because but Ive gotten so much help, and I should really be dead, to be frank. Then he jumped to adoption: If its not my sperm, Im frightened the kid at ten or 11 could start goose-stepping in his bedroom and have posters of Hitler in his room. Then his doubts about interviews: Yeah, you know youre only going to put in one quote and it will probably say, Hi, I gained three pounds.
And finally, we got to ask him about his act: This is basically my act I have no act. Lewis tends to perform in an erratic, stream-of-consciousness style. He doesnt memorize a set, and every performance has 30 to 40 percent new material.
