I started doing a half-hour Sunday night talk show on college radio station KUNV. That excited me more than anything I'd ever done.

Jimmy Kimmel

The Republican National Convention is a great place to hear people talk about politics and values and all that sort of thing. But there's one thing brings me back year after year, and that's white people dancing. The RNC is the world's premier Caucasian amateur dance festival.
