Henry Petroski
A lot of the CTE stuff, you see in football, and that’s because of the constant collision. These guys are doing it every week, and it’s not like the running back is getting this problem, or the quarterback, it’s the guys on the front line that keep going into each other. It’s those guys.

Home gigs can be hard because it’s an odd collision. More than anything, I feel self-conscious when my family are in the audience. I’m doing this job which is not quite acting – part of it is me, part performance. You’re presenting a cartoon of yourself to people who know you as a line-drawing.
