Very occasional quote of the day: nice guys
— Garry Shandling, 1949-2016
[h/t to @TheBlakeMorgan]
There's also a great exchange in Shandling's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee video with Jerry Seinfeld. Seinfeld laments about where all comedians' material goes when they die:
JS: Gee, all that material, you worked so hard on it, it's just gone. It doesn't mean anything to anyone any more, and it took so much work to create it.
GS: That material and your material is purely a vehicle for you to express your spirit, and your soul, and your being...
It doesn't have any value beyond you expressing yourself spiritually in a very soulful, spiritual way. It's why you're on the planet.
