Richter 540I love Andy Richter. For my money he’s one of the funniest comic actors out there.

There’s a nice interview with him on NPR today, and this quote especially jumped out at me:

“So the only thing you can do is do something that you think is funny. And I don’t mean, become a big artist, but do try to tickle your own funny bone as much as you can, and hope that you have a sense of humor people can relate to.”

So true.
