Will Ferrell is one the world's top paid actors and comedians. He made his name on Saturday Night Live as an impressionist. Here are some of his famous quotes.

  1. A lot of people have gotten into comedy because of certain influences in their lives or events that were painful, and I really have wracked my brain to figure it out. I pretty much have had a normal childhood. Maybe it was too normal.
  2. All you have in comedy, in general, is just going with your instincts. You can only hope that other people think that what you think is funny is funny. I don't have an answer but I just try to plough straight ahead.
  3. How classy is it for me to wear these pink tennis shoes with my tux?
  4. I'm not really an exhibitionist. I'm drawn to the outrageous stuff because it's fun, not because it's some deep compulsion. I'm no tortured, anger-stoked, deeply neurotic comic -- just a pretty low-key normal guy. A 'hey, the glass is half-full' kind of a guy. But please keep it quiet, or I may never work again.
  5. I have only been funny about seventy four per cent of the time. Yes I think that is right. Seventy-four per cent of the time.
  6. James Caan told me at the end of filming 'Elf' that he had been waiting through the whole film for me to be funny - and I never was.
  7. One of the challenges you will face is finding a job in our depressed economy, ... In fact, the chances of finding a job are about as good as finding weapons of mass destruction in the Iraqi desert -- slim and none, and slim just left the building.
  8. Whom does the prime minister prefer? Tinky Winkey, Dipsy, Po, or La-La?
  9. I'm actually pretty athletic. I have to work out just to look fat.
