I always like it when I eat myself out of breath. That’s a good boost to my day. You know, I’m eating, and I go, ‘Oooohhh.’ It’s better a few moments later when you get to think about it, when you’re like, ‘Why did I just stop to take a deep breath? Oh yeah, my body also needs air.’

When you tour as much as I do, you’re always on the road, and you tend to gravitate toward cities where you’re like, ‘Every time I’m in that city, the shows are fun.’

I could see myself being on a TV show, but I think touring is something I’ll always do.

I think, to be a great conversationalist, you need to be interested in being in said conversation. Oddly enough, I think you need to be a great listener, and I do think I’m a good listener. I think that’s my asset – I always listen to people when I talk to them, and that’s a big thing you have to have in life and in podcasts.
Tom Segura

I’ve never been a big party guy or super social.
Tom Segura

I don’t like big events and crowded areas. I’m almost a curmudgeonly old man in that aspect. I’ve been like that forever.

Traveling with kids is tough. My best advice is don’t do it.
Tom Segura

I’m definitely a jaded traveler, but you try to make the best of what you know about the experience. Like, I know how to pack a bag. I know that checking a bag is for rookies.
Tom Segura

Sleep is important for a comic – like it is for a lot of people.
Tom Segura

It’s okay for me to make jokes about disabled people and people with horrible diseases because they make me uncomfortable, and I don’t want to be like them.
Tom Segura

When you’re a comic doing a special, it’s like you’re directing your first movie.
Tom Segura

When you shoot a special, you have no idea what’s going to happen, and the fact that I got to do the first one with Comedy Dynamics was a roll of the dice. It was a game changer for me professionally.
Tom Segura

If you’re going to wear a cowboy hat, you’re going to have to go all the way. You should have livestock around you, settle all of your disputes with a pistol, and ride a horse absolutely everywhere.
Tom Segura

People will say, ‘What’s your favorite part of Cincinnati?’ I’m like, ‘I was nine, man. I liked recess and having snacks. I didn’t go anywhere. I was a kid.’
Tom Segura

Here’s some advice: if something really embarrassing happens to your kid, don’t take it on national TV.

Standup is essentially part of your personality with the volume turned up.
Tom Segura

The thing for me is that my natural state is to be reserved and not share.
Tom Segura

I don’t want to lose weight to live long or be healthy. I just want to be able to make fun of fat people again and know for sure that they’re fatter than me.
Tom Segura

I’m a sarcastic, observational storyteller.
Tom Segura

I don’t switch my act up to win over the crowd. I’m more like, ‘You came here… this is what I do.’ I dig my heels in harder if I feel like they are not on board.
Tom Segura

I like my shame straight up and honest, and nobody does it better than In-N-Out Burger. You go to In-N-Out Burger, and they ask you the most shameful question in fast food. ‘I’ll have a burger, fries and a Coke.’ ‘Will you be eating in the car?’ ‘Yeah. I think so.’
Tom Segura

I would trade 20 white babies for an Asian baby. If I’m ever rich, I want a closet full of Asian babies. And I’ll just pull them out whenever I’m feeling down, you know? All kinds. Korean ones. Chinese ones. Vietnamese – not so much. My dad was in the war, and I hold a grudge.
Tom Segura

A lot of times, you land in a city, and you’re like, ‘This is not my people.’ I’m gonna do the show, but you don’t feel like this is for you. And then, some places, you just go and just fall into a groove, and you’re like, ‘This feels right.’
Tom Segura

Vancouver just feels comfortable to me.
Tom Segura

I think being funny was a coping mechanism because I was always the new kid in school.

I wasn’t the crazy kid bouncing off the walls, I would just sit back a make comments and I made people laugh.
Tom Segura

I was about 17 or 18 years old, and Chris Rock’s ‘Bring the Pain’ came out, and I was obsessed. You know, it just hit on everything that was going on at that time and was such an in-the-moment special, and he knocked it out of the park.
Tom Segura

It’s fun when you’ve opened for someone at a venue, and then years go by, and now you’re headlining.
Tom Segura

I’m really happy when I’m actively creating things. When I’m frustrated and not excited, it’s because I haven’t written anything in a month or so.
Tom Segura

Ninety percent of my material is made on stage, but I feel like you’re missing something by abandoning sitting down to write entirely.
Tom Segura

I know there are a lot of comics that put their kids all over social media, but I think it’s weird. There are over 100,000 people following you. To me, it feels like you should probably tone that down.
Tom Segura

You get such a visceral thrill driving a race car. You think you’ve driven, and then you’re like, ‘Oh, I was doing something for 20 years that I didn’t realize I hadn’t experienced the real version of.’
