ON ACTING: Comedy and Excess

Comedy is reason gone awry.

We all care for money; a funny character has sex with his money pouch on.

We all like sex; a funny character genuinely believes he will die is he misses a day.

We all have doubts; a funny character doubts his doubts.

We all are jealous; a funny character attaches a tracking devise to his girlfriend's boots as a wedding present.

...and on and on...

Comedy takes a normal feeling which the audience can easily identify with and expands it to unreasonable excess.
