I thought it started as prostate cancer? I don't really know, I think that's just something that I heard.

I remember this joke he told when I saw him onstage. Imagine that voice of his.

There was a man who heard about a woman in his town that would do ANYTHING for $100, so he decided to seek her out. "She'll do ANYTHING, right?" he asked his friends.

"ANYTHING," they told him.

So he went to the house, and he knocked on the door. A woman answered. "May I help you?"

"Yes, I'm looking for the girl who will do ANYTHING for $100."

"Just a moment, please."

A little bit later a beautiful young woman returned. "Yes?"

"I heard you would do ANYTHING for $100. Is that true?" he asked.

"Yes it is," she said.

"Would you paint my house?"
