In an interesting chat, he spoke on how he was able to transition from being a news reporter to a comedian. According to the actor, he had always pulled his funny moves even in the newsroom.

"Well, even in the newsroom - because the newsroom can be pretty intense, we needed to stay sane. I would do my crazy thing, and my friends back at the station now watching this would  probably agree with that. We would just crack each other up. It was just a normal life for me."
