Q&A with Joel McHale

The comedian talks about his health, his upcoming movie ("Ted"), and coping with a newborn's illness.


What advice do you have for parents who find themselves faced with serious health issues with their children?

You have to dump your life into your child. You have to live for them. That's when you really have to be a parent and shower them with love, even if they are tiny and don't understand what's going on.

Did your son's illness encourage you to pay more attention to your own health?

No. I drink just as much as I used to. Kidding. I am not a smoker, but I didn't ever think about my health at all. I didn't think about eating more whole grains or drinking more wheat grass juice.

Is there anything you wish you had known about health when you were younger?

I used to run so much. I wish I had known how rough that could be on your knees. Now I do pushups.

What is your best health habit? Your worst?

I eat a lot of vegetables, and I do a lot of pushups. At random times, I will just drop on the floor and do some pushups. I've usually done a couple hundred by the end of the day. Mostly I do them in the trailer on the Community set or on the floor at home. My worst [health habit] is too much wine and going crazy for sweets.

Have you passed on the funny gene to your sons?

Both are hams in their own way. They definitely can tell jokes. When I make a bad joke, Eddie says, "Daddy, no more jokes for a year."

You have been married for more than 15 years. How do you and your wife keep your relationship fresh?

You have to choose your spouse every day. Tell yourself that this is the person that I love and want to be with. It has to be something that you do consciously, then it becomes subconscious.

How do you blow off steam after your 12-14 hour days? Paint ball? What do you do to relax? Do you sleep as much as you should?
