Greg Behrendt is a stand-up comic who also happens to be a best-selling author of two self-improvement books. While there's a lot to like about Greg, perhaps our favorite thing about him is that in his stand-up DVD Greg Behrendt Is Uncool he agrees with our assertion that fun size candy bars are no fun at all. If you agree as well, be sure to let Greg know at his website GregBehrendt.com.
Q: Even though your New York Times bestselling books "It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken" and "He's Just Not That Into You," are targeted toward the female audience, I firmly believe that they contain a bountiful load of self-realization for all young men. If you had to choose, which of the two sexes benefits more from your witty and enlightening reads?
GB: If men read those kinds of books I would have written one for them because men are actually (in my experience) more willing to take instruction once they realize their shot is falling apart. But mostly men get drunk, stand on a girl's lawn and then a cop comes and that's when they know their relationships are over.
Q: Listed as one of your favorite shows is Rockstar: Supernova. Was it just me, or did Storm Large completely deserve to win?
GB: I gotta say, man, I didn't love Storm; she kinda gave me the idiot shivers. I liked that Australian dude.
Q: Your Comedy Central special is titled Greg Behrendt Is Uncool. Who would you list as 3 people who think they're cool and are sadly mistaken?
GB: Storm Large, the guy that won Rockstar Supernova and Tommy Lee.
Q: You're a man who doesn't mind being inked. What do you feel is the most alluring reason why people get tattooed despite the painful process and potential "buyer's remorse"?
GB: You are claiming yourself in a way. You are saying I am a Daffy Duck guy and I want everyone in the showers to know that.
Q: As a happily married male, what advice would you give to fellow gents who fear the nuptial process?
GB: Don't do it if you fear it. There's no point. I only got married cause when I met my wife I wanted to nail that shit down.
Q: If you were casting The Greg Behrendt Story, (and you couldn't select yourself as the lead) who would play you and why?

Q: Sum up for us the main reason women get sucked into abusive relationships that they seemingly cannot walk away from?
GB: Because they don't know they deserve better.
Q: When you wake up in the morning and take a look in the mirror, what's the first thing to enter your mind?
GB: Fuck, I really am 45 years old... and HOT!
Q: Where can we catch more of you in 2008?

Q: Let's end with word association. We say wombat and you say.....
