Bullfights are hugely popular because you can sit comfortably with a hot dog and possibly watch a man die. It won't be me, but I can sit comfortably and watch it.More Albert Brooks [06/17/2008 12:06:00]
Even if you didn't see the movie, you'd see two words you'd never seen put together before - comedy and Muslim. Comedy is friendly - it's the least offensive word in our language.More Albert Brooks [06/17/2008 12:06:00]
I come from the place where I am thinking 'I have put my blood on the pages.'More Albert Brooks [06/17/2008 12:06:00]

All improv turns into anger. All comedy improv basically turns into anger, because that's all people know how to do when they're improvising. If you notice shows that are improvising are generally people yelling at each other.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Movies are an expensive business.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

My mom was a professional. My dad and mom met each other in a movie called 'New Faces of 1937.' My mom went under the name Thelma Leeds, and she did a few movies, and she was really a great singer, and when she married my dad and started to have a family, she sang at parties.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
When I was younger, I wasn't concentrating on good days. I was managing a career and trying to have a good year. It would always 'lead' to something, which never leads to anything except death, where everything leads to. And then as I got older, and then I had my kids and everything, I began to appreciate a great Wednesday.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

I've been to many funerals of funny people, and they're some of the funniest days you'll ever have, because the emotions run high.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
What's interesting about books that take place in the future, even twenty years in the future, is that many of them are black or white: It's either a utopia or it's misery. The real truth is that there's going to be both things in any future, just like there is now.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I can't not put humor in a book.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I had a very wise person tell me that he thinks marriage, when you're younger, you keep thinking you can fix things. That's what people do. And you can't really fix anything. It shouldn't be a massive difficult thing every day. Life's difficult enough.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I like movies about failing.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I cast unusual people in my movies.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I've always been in the middle of making my own movies, so taking acting jobs that take me away from that has been impossible.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
By the way, movies are like sporting events in that you're as good as the movie you're in. You can sit in a room for 20 years and go do a movie and you can just kill in it and you move to the head of the line again. By the same token, you can do five movies a year and if they're dreck, it's nothing.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Listen, there are some movies that are set in stone and the writer or the director does not want to change, but I've never worked on a movie, including my own, that didn't take advantage of a rehearsal process.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I've done performances in movies that I was immensely proud of and the movies didn't take off like a rocket at Cape Canaveral, it didn't take off.More Albert Brooks [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
When I die, if the word 'thong' appears in the first or second sentence of my obituary, I've screwed up.More Albert Brooks [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Bullfights are hugely popular because you can sit comfortably with a hot dog and possibly watch a man die. It won't be me, but I can sit comfortably and watch it.More Albert Brooks [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
