Hometown: Amherst Major: Theatre and organizational communication Influences: Steve Martin, Andy Kaufman, Richard Pryor Type of humor: 'Political and social stuff, and I also talk a lot about my family.' Joke: 'My parents were hippies. when I was 5, they took me on a yogic retreat. It was ridiculous. We were taught how to meditate. the other kids were, like normal kids, really competitive about meditating. The instructor would ask us what we experienced in our meditation: 'Timmy, what did you see?' 'I saw Krishna!' 'Jimmy?' 'I saw Buddha!' 'Elisha?' 'I saw Screech from 'Saved by the Bell.''
