Women often postpone their lives, thinking that if they're not with a partner then it doesn't really count. They're still searching for their prince, in a way. And as much as we don't discuss that, because it's too embarrassing and too sad, I think it really does exist.

I'm a creature of adaptation. I take advantage of the second and the moment. My comedy breathes; it's not really that predictable.

Tags: Moment, Talk  ✍ Author: Tommy Davidson
