Just for the funny alone, this man deserves this star. You will never meet a more searingly sophisticated wit. Why? Because he gets the joke, and the joke is often painful. He deeply understands that life is fleeting and that if we’re not laughing, we’re dying. I believe the reason he is so competent and complete and [artistic] stems from his mastery of the deep dive. Whether it’s becoming a chef in order to play one or co-creating a technology to provide a new form of entertainment, he is relentless in the pursuit of what’s next and what’s possible.”
