My first ‘Daily Show’ piece was pretending I had this terrible immigrant journey, so I went to talk to an immigration lawyer who would help out people, and I ran into him in Penn Station about three months after I’d gotten the green card. I said, ‘I got my green card yesterday.’ And he hugged me because he understood that level of relief.

In the old days, you would have one lawyer to handle everything: speeding tickets, buying a house, contracts, litigation, real estate, copyrights, leasing, entertainment, intellectual property, forensic accounting, criminal offenses… the list goes on. Now, you have to have a separate lawyer for each one of those categories!

The good and wonderful thing about my whole career is that I’ve always felt that the audience, if I do it well, will track wherever I go, whether it’s President or a lawyer or bad guy or good. All I have to do is execute the material enough where they buy into it. I’ve had the great luxury of the audiences accepting that.
