#Quote
1The fans in Canada have been there since day one. They're the originals. When people say that's your roots, that's literally my roots. I've just cut this tree off and replanted it somewhere else and it started growing. But the roots are there.
2[on Bollywood films]It's not that I'm not a fan. It's just that if you gave me the option between cutting my testicles off or making me watch one of those films, I'd be like 'Get those knives sharpened up, would you?'
3[on his parents' view of his becoming a comedian] Their reaction was kind of like if your child tells you they want to be an astronaut, you pat them on the head say 'Yes, honey, you go and be an astronaut.'..They had no clue what it was or what that meant. They weren't like 'Oh no, not a comedian! You mean gigs, long months on the road, late nights and skanky chicks?' They had no point of reference for it all. I might as well have said, 'Dad, I'm going to make houses on the moon'.
4I'm a hip-hop junkie. I've been listening to the music for over 20 years. That's very much shaped who I am and the way I think, how I look at things and how I dress, how I carry myself.
5I found one guy was Trinidadian, posing as an Indian, One guy was Iranian, posing as an Indian. I'm the real deal, baby! So it's really cool that I'm first. It doesn't matter who comes after me, or who's better than me. The fact of the matter is that I was the first.
6[on using other people's comedy ideas] It's like wearing another man's underwear. Why would you do that?
7I have a phenomenal memory. I remember every single thing that anybody said to me, ever did to me, who was nice to me and who was not nice to me. In the business at least. And I see how these guys react to me. It's all smiles and 'I'm so glad to see ya! You're doing really well!' I'm like,'Wait, I remember you being a dick to me back in the day'.
8People always say 'You do racial comedy'. And I don't exactly. I do cultural comedy. Because race and culture are two different things. There's black people from America and then there's black people from Africa. Racially they're the same, culturally they're extremely different.
9"Indians are the second largest population in the world, but we're invisible on TV - everything is either black or white." (Western Gazette, November 24th 2000)
