"No matter how you screw up the spelling of his last name, for my money, there is no one funnier than Brooks. I will never forget the first time I went to the theater and was floored by a performance. It was another time I said. . . I MUST do that.

Although, Brooks, if you are reading this, nothing compares to your performances on the porch of your house at Williamstown Theater Festival."
