"What were your ambitions in college?" asked host Sara Gilbert.

"Man, I had no idea," said Drew. "I went to college because it was just a thing you do after graduating high school. My first grade point average was a 0.5."

The star added, "I got thrown out, I was academically dismissed, and then I came back again... and then I floated around with bad odd jobs..."

"And then you became a millionaire!" added Sara.

"Yeah, I hit the stand-up comedy lottery," Drew smiled.
