"I think if someone gets kicked in the face it is their fault- they watched the foot come towards their face."
"Here's the thing. We do a movie with a predominantly black cast and it's put in a category of being a black film. When other movies are done with a predominantly white cast, we don't call them a white film. I'm trying to remove the stigma off things they call black films."
"My dad said I was supposed to be on drugs. I was like "Dad, shut up," but then I thought about it and, and it was stupid, but it made sense. He was saying that basically he was my example to never go down that road.
"I don't like to alienate anybody with my comedy. I don't want to disengage audiences. I want to appeal to everyone and take them minds away from their issues with a lot of laughter. It's about providing some escape."
He once worked as a shoe salesman.
He is good friends with Jason Segel.
He was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on October 10, 2016.
