I am far from perfect, but I have something else. I heard that people in the industry are longing for more personality and diversity. Perhaps I am more a ‘character’ than a model.

Our focus on melanin and people’s skins – can’t we talk about the diversity of ideology? Can’t we look at people for their minds and what they can contribute? And I’d like to see us go more toward a respect for people’s ability to contribute, and I actually want to get to a society where we disregard race.

In my late 20s, I realized that I had a very clear social conscience and strong opinions about things like diversity, equality, and education, and while I tried to become more politically literate, I just couldn’t catch on.

The Internet ethos of diversity and competition runs exactly counter to uniform, gatekeeper-oriented medical culture – the technocratic philosophy of the ‘one best way’ embodied in our pharmaceutical regulations. On the Net, medical information is abundant, and pharmacies, domestic and foreign, operate on many different models.

I try to be an ethical, moral person and a nice person, and I like to have that reflected in my comedy. I’m not a mean comedian, and I don’t think that my comedy is mean. I think that for the most part, it’s more focused on the diversity that we all handle and try to provide a distraction from the disaster of modern living.
