We've always thought that as parents, we could take our act on the road. All the hilarious stories about ... okay, well, we can't think of any right now, but we've got a few!

Rob Delaney, an actual comedian (and author and "Funniest Man on Twitter") now has kids. Initially, he feared that once he got his 'Dad' title, he'd suddenly become ... un-funny. Not the case, though, he says that he's now funnier, and we pretty much agree.

In his interview with HuffPost Live, one of our favorite take-aways was this gem: "My oldest kid is 2.5-years-old. When they're that young, you either take really good care of them ... or they die. My advice is to physically be with them—you know: contact, letting them climb all over you, that's really important. As far as helping them deal with challenging situations? No idea." He'll learn ... we imagine.

No, but seriously, this guy is pretty funny. Watch what he says about being a dad and tell us: Have you got some hilarious stories about parenting you think you could make a comedy act with? We're listening!
