    • Michelle Collins: (on when she decided when she was funny) Probably around 5 years old, during my stint as a kindergartner at Temple Menorah (actual name for a fake temple). It was our Hanukkah production, and due to my giant-ness, I was cast as the coveted "shamash," or big middle candle. While all the other children stared at their feet, I gave a rousing production of "Oh Hanukkah" in the style of Shirley Bassey, then refused to stop curtsying once the song was over. I booked Carson three days later. Daly. (Johnny was dead.)
