Robert Klein on his college days (SNL 1978):

" I went to a small school, a very obscure school named Alfred....
Um, I went there because they had a wonderful brochure, uh, with handsome people walking on the campus carrying books... with nice writing underneath it: “Walking on the campus carrying books is a favorite pastime of Alfred students.” Suckered me right in there.... They never have ones like... “God, I may be pregnant.”
" I get to the dormitory from a bus ride, and they take us into the dormitory and [moos]. “Are-are-are these the dormitories?” “Yes, sir, just shoo ’em away, they’ll go. Cows don’t bother ya none.” And they made fun of the way I spoke: “Hey, New Yohk, tohk, mwohk…” Just what I needed at 17, 16. Of course, they spoke fine: “Hey, my father gave me a dallar to get married in Baffalo and I’m goin’ next week if you wanna…”
"A little thing I encountered there that I really hadn’t encountered before, uh, anti-Semitism. Well, nothing–it was subtle, nothing you could put your finger on. Subtle to be sure: [yelling] “Hey Jewboy! Where you goin’, Jewboy, high holy day?” You know, just what I needed. I wanted to meet the guy next door in the dormitory. He was decorating his room with a swastika mobile. And I remember a brief phone call home to my parents: [sobbing] “Get me outta here!”
"But I-I-I, one of the gutsiest things I ever did eventually was play Shylock in The Merchant of Venice in the drama club there. It’s a 17-year-old kid trying to play an old man, you put on that quick palsy shake.... This wonderful speech of Shakespeare’s where he equates all people– "Have not a Jew hands, organs, senses, dimensions, affections, [begins the palsy shake] passions?”
" And the audience said “No, Jewboy! Jew-boy! Jew-boy! Jew-boy! Get him!”"
"The Indian smiles, he thinks that the cowboy is his friend. The cowboy smiles, he is glad the Indian is fooled. Now he can exploit him" Gof4
"Redwoods talk to me. Say it plainly The human name Doesn't mean shit to a tree" J.A.
"Are we not pins? We are DEVO" Devo
