My job is to stand on stage and to tell the truth.
When I'm asked if I'm a comedian, I say, "Only if the audience laughs, otherwise I'm a dramatist."
Either way, I've done my job.
"I was born in a small Ontario mining community called Sudbury, Ontario."
"Where the men are men."
"And the women, are men."
"And the dogs, are men."
-- Sandra Shamas, My Boyfriend's Back and There's Gonna Be Laundry (1987)
