Bobby Lee

A lot of people that are in the disease of drinking and using can be caught up on the denial aspect of it. I don’t have a problem with that. I am very sensitive. I can just feel when things are getting out of control and I go, ‘Oh, you have to deal with this. Because you can die.’ I’ve always sort of had that.

For a while last summer I was depressed because nothing was happening. It got to the point where people like me were getting films, so I decided to focus on stand-up. It kind of saved my life. I hate to be that dramatic, but I got a girlfriend and refocused my life on being more real and living a regular life rather than pursuing this other false goal of television and movie stardom.
