ON ACTING: Comedy and Excess
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.
