And I started writing and what poured out of me was an imaginary conversation with God,which was one-sided, and I finished writing it and I looked at it and I said to myself, and Ihadn't even been doing stand-up, ever, there was no club in town. I said, "I'm gonna do this onthe Tonight Show with Johnny Carson"at the time he was the king-"and I'm gonna be the firstwoman in the history of the show to be called over to sit down." And several years later, I wasthe first woman in the history of the show, and only woman in the history of the show to sitdown, because of that phone conversation with God that I wrote. And I started this path ofstand-up and it was successful and it was great, but it was hard, because I was trying toplease everybody and I had this secret that I was keeping, that I was gay. And I thought ifpeople found out they wouldn't like me, they would laugh at me.
