"I wasn’t an exceptional student," she says. "I always got one C". That was in the class in which she didn’t like the teacher. "If I didn’t like the teacher, I would cut up in class and get a C. My favorite part of high school was the boys who sat in the back row. They were so funny! So much of what I know about comedy - event the most sophisticated comedy - comes from high school, because it’s such a painful, funny time. And some of those boys in the back row, who now sell real estate in New Yersey, were the most brilliantly funny people in the whole world. I was a very good audience before I ever thought of being a performer."
