like talking. It gets me into
trouble. I overcommit myself."
Schiff regards "bombing,"
playing to an unresponsive
audience, as a necessary evil.
"With stand-up comedy, it's
such a live art form that you
never have a down," he ex-
plained. "It's like a jet plane,
you can go down any minute
no matter how good you are.
You can always bomb and you
have to. Like any art form, in
order to be great you have to
bend."
Schiff's greatest fear is that
his audience won't like him.
"What I do tends to scream,
`love me,' " the comedian said.
"Comedians work by
themselves. I don't have a
band behind me. I stand in
front of a mike and I go .. .

Comedian Schiff got his first national exposure on the "David Letterman
Show."

And that becomes a problem
because that sets you up for
perfectionism and that's
death. Once you try to be
perfect you're gone."

The never-married Schiff
would like to get married.
"You don't become the fullest
person you can be without
marriage," he explained. "I
believe in having families.
What am I working for,
myself?"

Since becoming a comedian,
Schiff has had one goal — to
be the funniest he can be.
"That was my goal and
because of that I was never in
competition with anybody. All
I have to do if I'm going to
become a comedian is be the
best I can." ❑

have taken a shine to
Shining Through author
Susan Isaacs.
Maybe it's just that the
author's own story is so novel
that I feel they should make
a movie out of it.
Why not? After all, they've
made movies out of most of
her stories.
Take Compromising Posi-
tions, a laughing gas of a
novel about murder, intrigue
and dentistry; or the fairy-
tale talisman
Almost
Paradise.

Indeed, writing is as
paradisiacal as one can get,
reckons Isaacs, a 44-year-old
Flatbush phenom born on
Pearl Harbor Day. "Growing
up, whenever I heard the 'Day
of Infamy,' I'd feel important,
patriotic, somehow a part of
the great fight that was World
War II," she says.
Her country is a great
Shining
backdrop for
Through, which mixes es-
pionage, the Holocaust and
romance into a melange of
mystery.
Isaacs has a gobble-'em-up
style, her works a feast of fun.
She admits that some of her
