Mike Myers – Quoted

2009-06-06Where in the world am I today?: Aboard the STAR Princess docked in Victoria, BC, Canada

“I still believe that at any time the no-talent police will come and arrest me.”

Mike Myers, Canadian Comedian, Actor (1963 – )


“I like to refer to it as the knock… Every time I get back from a cruise ship gig I turn to my wife and say – ‘I didn’t get the knock.’ You know, the knock where they come and say – Excuse me Mr. Aiken, we’ve discovered you don’t actually have any talent, will you please pack your bags and prepare to disembark. I know we’re not at a peer at the moment, but we’ve got a life boat waiting for you.”

–David ‘checkerhead’ Aiken

‘Imposter syndrome’ is the technical term for it, but I think somewhere along the line maybe when I got married, maybe when I became a father, maybe when I became a home owner it dawned on me how completely ridiculous yet enormously fun it is to make a living by throwing stuff around and acting silly… I sincerely hope no one ever catches me and turns me in.
