Uncle Fester always intrigued me. I certainly always enjoyed his kind of humor. He’s just full of mischief in a kind of macabre way. I don’t see anything twisted about it. It’s sort of ridiculous and wacky. It’s sort of fun.

I met Jack Nicholson when I was about 10 at a party of my uncle’s, and it wasn’t so much that I knew his films because I was small, but he wore sunglasses inside at night and I thought that must mean he was very important and was suitably star struck by his charismatic presence.

But gradually I got allowed into the game.
Steve Clarke
I don’t think I could compare myself to Macaulay Culkin, because we’re pretty much two different kinds of actors. He’s done a lot of comedy.

I look at the progressive policies that have marginalized black dads. They push them to the side and say, ‘You’re not needed.’ Uncle Sam is going to be the dad: he’s going to provide for the kids; he’s going to feed the kids.

I remember my uncle and my father telling me that my mother didn’t want me because I was blind. She thought being blind was a disgrace and a punishment from God.

Ronnie Milsap
Donald Trump is not a 71-year-old white man. He is an Indian uncle. He wears suits that don’t fit; he can’t speak English properly. He works with his idiotic sons; he hates women but loves his daughter. He makes up words when he gets angry. He is an Indian uncle.
Hasan Minhaj
The Gong Show provided me with five years of the happiest times of my life, but that’s that. And to be known as the guy who gave the world The Gong Show – listen, my Uncle George isn’t known as anything. So I guess it isn’t so bad in that context.
Chuck Barris
My uncle used to take me out at night shooting rabbits.
Matt Berry
