comedy

Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are living in the machine age. For the first time in history the comedian has been compelled to supply himself with jokes and comedy material to compete with the machine. Whether he knows it or not, the comedian is on a treadmill to oblivion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Comedy just pokes at problems, rarely confronts them squarely. Drama is like a plate of meat and potatoes, comedy is rather the dessert, a bit like meringue.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Friends applaud, the comedy is over.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

We participate in tragedy. At comedy we only look.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The only rules comedy can tolerate are those of taste, and the only limitations those of libel.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life is a comedy for those who think... and a tragedy for those who feel.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
This world is a comedy to those that think, a tragedy to those that feel.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My first year in Hollywood was a virtual comedy of errors. I was told I was too tall, and too beautiful. I found myself being cast to play dead bodies and scantily clad bimbos.More [10/21/2005 12:10:00]
Life is funny. Life isn't categorized into comedy, drama, action, is it?So I don't know why they try to categorize everything. It drives me crazy-why it would have to be just a romantic comedy or...I want to have a little integrity, a little story, you know.More [01/01/2006 12:01:00]
I don't do comedy so much although I would like to do a comedy.More [04/05/2006 12:04:00]
My comedy is different every time I do it. I don't know what the hell I'm doing.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
It seemed to be able to mine the craziness of everyday living in this busy world. I loved the way it flip-flopped from almost farce-like comedy to something very sweet and serious. It made me laugh.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
It can flip on a dime from being almost farce-like to being quite serious and then back. That's what a lot of us like. I would say it's a comedy more than a drama. But then there are some episodes that are coming up that are straight drama.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
The Internet is a great place to find unconventional comedy that you can't find anywhere else.More [04/07/2006 12:04:00]
I think comedy is more my instinct and more what I'm geared towards.More [04/10/2006 12:04:00]
With comedy you have to really be in touch with the energy of the crowd, you have to really be in touch with timing. I feel like I've had a lot of success in theater doing that, but it's a super-challenge.More [04/10/2006 12:04:00]
But comedy I'd love to do as much as humanly possible.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
The male image has been so pulled down by situation comedy in the last 15 years, it is frightening. I don't like what has happened to the American male.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
It was also the timing of the '50's. There were also some great comedy shows on live TV.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]

I'm doing 5000 seat theaters and audiences are going nuts, it's fantastic and it makes me very happy. I'm dirty, but not like this; I just do comedy that I find funny. I'm working on a new tv show for cable and it's not set up yet.More [04/12/2006 12:04:00]
The Comedy Store - all three rooms were filled with 800 people in the room. And during that time, all these guys and some women, but mostly guys who weren't funny were doing stand up for a living; they weren't accountants, they were making $30-$50 grand a year on the road, or more.More [04/12/2006 12:04:00]
The nature of comedy is 'just do it.' But I think what's interesting about it is this joke has been around and why. And it's just saying what's wrong and how wrong can you be if you say it.More [04/12/2006 12:04:00]
Yet there are some people - Steve Allen would dissect comedy forever; he's a really funny guy, but he would love talking about comedy. I'm doing it right now and you all seem bored.More [04/12/2006 12:04:00]
Why would they have gone to the trouble to hire the best comedy writers in the business to write funny material for us to play straight, if the children in our audience were the only audience.More [04/15/2006 12:04:00]

Who would have ever thought I would win in the comedy and musical category?More [05/19/2006 12:05:00]
Tim and I have known each other for 15 years, so when we go back to doing a film every few years, it's like going home again. He walks this fine line between darkness and comedy like nobody else.More [05/19/2006 12:05:00]
About 25 years ago, I was in an apartment, and next door, they put on the radio, so I struck the wall with my fist, but they did not put the radio down. I took a tool and banged until I made a hole through the wall. It was like a comedy movie.More [05/22/2006 12:05:00]

I do comedy shows. I make fun of myself, first of all.More [06/16/2006 12:06:00]
Nobody's ever challenged me and tapped into what I can do. I ain't played a villain which I believe I can do and do real well.

At this point in my life I've done a lot of things from stand-up to my own television show for five years to successful comedy shows, and concert films.More [06/25/2006 12:06:00]

“A lot of people have gotten into comedy because of certain influences in their lives or events that were painful, and I really have wracked my brain to figure it out. I pretty much have had a normal childhood. Maybe it was too normal.”More [07/11/2006 12:07:00]
“I think a lot of the instincts you have doing comedy are really the same for doing drama, in that it's essentially about listening. The way I approach comedy, is you have to commit to everything as if it's a dramatic role, meaning you play it straight.”More [07/11/2006 12:07:00]
“I loved the structure of the whole movie—these two parallel stories which were illustrating the point of the fine line between comedy and tragedy. It was so imaginative and unique but at the same time very signature Woody Allen.”More [07/11/2006 12:07:00]
“[And his leading lady echoes that observation.] American men don't want to do comedy that makes them look silly or less masculine, ... But he has no fear. He throws himself into things. In fact, he threw himself out of a second-story window one day. He had the stunt me put down mats so everyone would laugh hysterically.”More [09/15/2006 12:09:00]

The best comedy I ever did was when people didn't know who I was.More [10/23/2006 12:10:00]

“I didn't see it coming, ... But Comedy Central wanted to do it and will air all 13 shows that we did. That's why I'm going out on this tour.
