How to handle yourself during the frenzied scramble for gainful employment. And the hammy goes to... ; My boss was a dick, even when you got to know him ; Desperately seeking soupy ; So I stole soda from Aaron Spelling ; Spielberg wasn't available ; The rule of ten ; Bad vibrations ; I'm Harry Dean Stanton's mommy -- How to maintain your sanity while stubbornly advancing an ever-arduous career. The singer, then the ventriloquist, then the chick ; Don't develop a drinking problem ; Who else is a proctologist gonna talk to? ; Heckled by Stephen Hawking ; SNL: hired by a U.S. senator, done in by politics ; Frank Sinatra called me big ; The show about nothing taught me something ; Keep your sour cream off the counter ; Again with the failure? ; Respect your yodas -- How to keep your footing when you finally get a leg up to the top of the heap. Thank you, stand-up comedy! I'll be here every week ; Walter White's work ethic ; There's no use kvetching over yesterday's pickles ; The fish stinks from the head down ; In closing: my top ten personal thoughts on success
