Notes

Clark on his hometown: "If you find out you have only one day to live, go to Gladys. Because one day there feels like an eternity." --quoted in People, April 22, 1996.

"I use the contrast between my city and country life backgrounds as the basis of my comic portrayals. I allow the audience to find the humor in themselves and their idiosyncrasies, without talking down to them."--Anthony Clark in press information for "Boston Common"
