Q. You have a dry, sarcastic sense of humor. Do your kids get it?
A. Elisabeth definitely does. She understands irony at 6, and my wife [comedian Nancy Walls] and I are responsible, for better or worse! It's not like Nancy and I taught that to her, though -- she just absorbs a lot. I think it's great when your child can surprise you with a sophisticated comedic angle on something. My son is still very young: He thinks Tom and Jerry bashing each other is the height of comedy.
