  • And um, how do you like the Japanese audience? I noticed that you’ve picked up a little Japanese.

I like them very much. I like that Japanese people are very polite.

Now, some people don’t like to play to them because they think they’re very quiet after American audiences. But, I like them. They’re very nice people. They listen and they applaud.

And once you get used to the fact they’re not all drunk and screaming, like they are in America, maybe then I… it’s… it’s okay.
