Some might say the movies you have been in are less than Oscar-worthy. Do you have any dreams of being a big-movie actor, or are you happy as a standup comedy guy?

Well, I'm not really much of an actor in terms of movies. When I did a little part in Pineapple Express with Ken [Jeong], Seth [Rogen] asked and I said yes. Sacha [Baron Cohen] asked me to be in The Dictator; I'm not going to say no. Am I Daniel Day-Lewis? No. Is that one of my goals in life? Not really. Can I act? Yeah. I've done six pilots for networks. I've done so many things, so I know I can act, but I like to do everything. If Christopher Nolan asked me to be the next Batman, I'd be like, "Fuck yeah, let's do it!"... He just hasn't asked me yet.

It's cool how you've jumped all over social media and bypassed having an official website.

I've never had a website. I don't sell merchandise. I tweet, but I don't tweet to get fans. I tweet to communicate with people I am friends with. If people want to follow me, that's great, and I follow a lot of people, but it is not a career thing. I don't need to gather as many people as possible so I can sell out arenas. For me, playing a club and getting the number of people I do get is fine. I'm on Instagram now, not for my career, but just to communicate with people.

A lot of people are getting on Instagram now. What do you like about that platform?

I just like taking photos of myself and putting them online. I like looking at hot chicks' accounts. I don't masturbate to them, but I just like watching pretty people. And I also like to see funny people doing funny photos. I don't really do that; I just take pictures with cool people I meet. I just did one with the Arctic Monkeys. I love them.

What will your show at the Fort Lauderdale Improv be like?

My standup is getting stronger, and people are coming out. I love coming to South Florida. I love pretty people and I love gambling and I love the sun. I like old people too. I always do well in Fort Lauderdale. I just want people to come and hang out.

What is your favorite sandwich?

The Monte Cristo. Although every time I eat it, I get diarrhea.
