Comedy quotes by Richard Corliss
#3. Though not really a comedy, 'Rosewater' is a demonstration of the creed behind 'The Daily Show': belief in the crucial need for impious wit against entrenched power.

Comedy quotes by Eugene Levy
#11. I let the comedy come through the character and just try to make sure that everything is kind of rounded in a truth, in a reality, because that's what I need to make a character work. #Quote by Eugene Levy
Comedy quotes by Walter Benjamin
#12. Painting, by its nature, cannot provide an object of simultaneous collective reception ... as film is able to do today ... And while efforts have been made to present paintings to the masses in galleries and salons, this mode of reception gives the masses no means of organizing and regulating their response. Thus, the same public which reacts progressively to a slapstick comedy inevitably displays a backward attitude toward Surrealism. #Quote by Walter Benjamin
Comedy quotes by Natasha Leggero
#13. Often when you are starting out in comedy, you will find that people will laugh at the things you didn't think were funny. It's important to pay attention also to what people are laughing at when you are just talking in regular conversation. Often that is when you are truly being yourself. #Quote by Natasha Leggero
Comedy quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#14. Unless comedy touches me as well as amuses me, it leaves me with a sense of having wasted my evening. I go to the theatre to be moved to laughter, not to be tickled or bustled into it. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw

#15. I loved comedy all my life. I think it's a real powerful art form. #Quote by Roseanne Barr

Comedy quotes by Eve Golden
#19. When [Claudette Colbert] died at 92, on July 30, 1996, her front-page New York Times obit recalled her "wit, gaiety, cupid'sbow mouth and light touch ... worldly and sophisticated yet down to earth." Claudette herself was quoted, "I've always believed that acting is instinct to start with; you either have it or you don't ... I did comedy because all my life I always wanted to laugh myself. There was never anything that gave me as much satisfaction as to be in something amusing. #Quote by Eve Golden
Comedy quotes by Rob McElhenney
#20. I feel like it's a dangerous and dark world if 'Sunny' becomes mainstream comedy. If you were to turn on CBS at 8 o'clock on Thursday and see an episode of 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia,' I don't know if I want to live in that world. #Quote by Rob McElhenney
Comedy quotes by Owen Gleiberman
#21. Josh Radnor is that rare thing: a writer-director who thinks like an actor but still knows how to create a comedy with shape and vision. Liberal Arts is the best movie about college I've seen since I don't know what ... Dryly affectionate and super-sharp. Elizabeth Olsen is every inch a star. #Quote by Owen Gleiberman
Comedy quotes by John Hodgman
#22. Don't concentrate on becoming a better humor writer, just concentrate on being the best writer that you can become. If you're funny, the work will end up being funny. And if you're not funny, the work will still end up being good. Concentrate on being the most honest writer you can be, and let everything else follow--because it will. #Quote by John Hodgman
Comedy quotes by Judd Apatow
#23. People like the comedy more when they care about the characters. #Quote by Judd Apatow
Comedy quotes by Kate Bush
#24. I listen to very little music, particularly contemporary. If I listen to it, it's going to be my own music, some arrangement or something. I spend so much time listening that the way I relax is by watching things, a comedy; that's my way to wind down. #Quote by Kate Bush
Comedy quotes by Edith Hamilton
#25. The comedy of each age holds up a mirror to the people of that age, a mirror that is unique. #Quote by Edith Hamilton
Comedy quotes by Kevin Hart
#26. My road to success was a long road to success was a long road. You get out of something what you put into it. I put blood, sweat and tears into stand-up comedy and the entertainment realm in general. For me to just know be coming around is a blessing. It's a blessing and it's an honor. It makes me say I can get more and I can do more. #Quote by Kevin Hart
Comedy quotes by Todd Phillips
#27. Well, it's so cheesy to say but you can't find a comedy director who makes movies for critics. When a movie does $580 million worldwide, I'm not saying that proves anything except people were enjoying the experience. #Quote by Todd Phillips
Comedy quotes by Jim Gaffigan
#28. I think growing up in Indiana prepares anyone for a life in comedy. I do feel like there is a certain kind of self-effacing cynicism among all Hoosiers. #Quote by Jim Gaffigan
Comedy quotes by Jo Brand
#29. The problem with comedy audiences - it's like the Coliseum - when they see someone struggling, they don't feel altruistic towards them. They feel slightly repulsed by it. #Quote by Jo Brand
Comedy quotes by Clint Eastwood
#30. Comedy isn't necessarily all dialogue. Think of Buster Keaton: the poker face and all this chaos going on all around him. Sometimes it's a question of timing, of the proper rhythm. #Quote by Clint Eastwood
Comedy quotes by Mario Puzo
#31. Santino, come here. What's the matter with you? I think your brain is going soft with all that comedy you are playing with that young girl. Never tell anyone outside the Family what you're thinking again. Go on. #Quote by Mario Puzo
Comedy quotes by Dennis Quaid
#32. I've had varying luck with comedy in the past, but I'd really like to give that another go. I don't know if I'd chase down a part, but if the right thing came along I could certainly see myself stepping into that zone. #Quote by Dennis Quaid
Comedy quotes by Al Madrigal
#33. People see me on the 'Daily Show' or 'About a Boy'. But the reality is that I only got into this business to do standup comedy. #Quote by Al Madrigal
Comedy quotes by Noel Fielding
#34. I had always drawn, every day as long as I had held a pencil, and just assumed everyone else had too ... Art had saved me and helped me fit in ... Art was always my saving grace ... Comedy didn't come until much later for me. I've always tried to combine the two things, art and comedy, and couldn't make a choice between the two. It was always my ambition to make comedy with an art-school slant, and art that could be funny instead of po-faced. #Quote by Noel Fielding
Comedy quotes by Sholem Aleichem
#35. Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor. #Quote by Sholem Aleichem
Comedy quotes by Marisa Tomei
#36. Comedy is what I really want to do and propel. #Quote by Marisa Tomei
Comedy quotes by Kenneth Williams
#37. People need to be peppered or even outraged occasionally. Our national comedy and drama is packed with earthy familiarity and honest vulgarity. Clean vulgarity can be very shocking and that, in my view, gives greater involvement. #Quote by Kenneth Williams
Comedy quotes by Gabriel Chevallier
#38. There is nothing in human affairs that is a true subject for ridicule. Beneath comedy lies the ferment of tragedy; the farcical is but a cloak for coming catastrophe. #Quote by Gabriel Chevallier
Comedy quotes by Phil LaMarr
#39. If you're doing an animated comedy on the same channel as 'South Park,' no one can really tell you anything. The bar has been set so high. #Quote by Phil LaMarr
Comedy quotes by Jimmy Tudeski
#40. How comes when a man likes an attractive female, is he helping to exploit women around the world, yet the moment he doesn't fancy the female in question, he only hates on her because she's empowering women? Seriously, I don't get it - Rihanna and Nicki do exactly the same thing as far as I can see. They both sing, dance and gyrate their sexy stuff on stage, yet one empowers women, the other is being exploited, depending on which one I fancy the most at the point of being asked the sodding question. How the fuck does any of this make sense? #Quote by Jimmy Tudeski
Comedy quotes by Patricia Eimer
#41. She couldn't be the first alien to crash-land on twenty-first-century Earth. #Quote by Patricia Eimer
Comedy quotes by Anais Torres
#42. Well I bet the Roman's wanted to build Rome in a day but look how well that turned out, #Quote by Anais Torres
Comedy quotes by Kiera Cass

Comedy quotes by Willie Geist
#44. Unintentional comedy is comedy just the same. #Quote by Willie Geist
Comedy quotes by George Eliot
#45. There were intervals in which she could sit perfectly still, enjoying the outer stillness and the subdued light. The red fire with its gently audible movement seemed like a solemn existence calmly independent of the petty passions, the imbecile desires, the straining after worthless uncertainties, which were daily moving her contempt. Mary was fond of her own thoughts, and could amuse herself well sitting in the twilight with her hands in her lap; for, having early had strong reason to believe that things were not likely to be arranged for her peculiar satisfaction, she wasted no time in astonishment and annoyance at that fact. And she had already come to take life very much as a comedy in which she had a proud, nay, a generous resolution not to act the mean or treacherous part. Mary might have become cynical if she had not had parents whom she honoured, and a well of affectionate gratitude within her, which was all the fuller because she had learned to make no unreasonable claims.

She sat to-night revolving, as she was wont, the scenes of the day, her lips often curling with amusement at the oddities to which her fancy added fresh drollery: people were so ridiculous with their illusions, carrying their fools' caps unawares, thinking their own lies opaque while everybody else's were transparent, making themselves exceptions to everything, as if when all the world looked yellow under a lamp they alone were rosy. #Quote by George Eliot
Comedy quotes by Misha Collins
#46. The image of a person completely covered in cotton candy made me laugh the most. I'm not sure why. To me, being tarred and feathered in sugar is just good comedy. #Quote by Misha Collins
Comedy quotes by Bob Hope
#47. The trees in Siberia are miles apart, that is why the dogs are so fast. #Quote by Bob Hope
Comedy quotes by Josh Billings
#48. No one can disgrace us but ourselves. #Quote by Josh Billings
Comedy quotes by Christoph Waltz
#49. I guess there are no real strict rules [in comedy], but I just learn to apply my philosophy about comedy which is, it's a serious business and the result needs to be funny, not the process. #Quote by Christoph Waltz
Comedy quotes by Hannibal Buress
#50. I remember 'Def Comedy Jam' being a big deal and kids talking about it in school, but it was never, 'I want to do that.' #Quote by Hannibal Buress
Comedy quotes by Nick Robinson
#51. I'd like to start trying different fields of work. I don't want to be stuck in just comedy, and I'd be interested to try to break into the movie business because it's so much different than television. #Quote by Nick Robinson
Comedy quotes by W.C. Fields
#52. The laziest man I ever met put popcorn in his pancakes so they would turn over by themselves. #Quote by W.C. Fields
Comedy quotes by Evan Peters
#53. I think it's harder to go from comedy to drama than from drama to comedy. Seeing you dramatic all the time, they crave to see you being silly or funny. But, seeing you in comedy all the time, it's hard to see that person go be serious, for some reason. #Quote by Evan Peters
Comedy quotes by Margaret Cho
#54. I'm a huge fan of the people and things that are considered the epitomes of tastelessness - things like drag and raunchy comedy. #Quote by Margaret Cho
Comedy quotes by Molly Harper
#55. A boot up the ass could be considered a 'nudge' right? #Quote by Molly Harper
Comedy quotes by Kathleen Flinn
#56. My mother always says, 'Eighty percent of what you worry about never happens anyway.'...So much of life is a farce, in both meanings of the word. Much of our life is made up of situations one might find in a traditional comedy - misunderstandings, wrong expectations, and odd situations that, in retrospect, seem quite amusing. How much of what happens is just stuff? Of course, there is always that other 20 percent. #Quote by Kathleen Flinn
Comedy quotes by Charlie Chaplin
#57. Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot. #Quote by Charlie Chaplin
Comedy quotes by Dick Van Dyke

Comedy quotes by Bill Maher
#60. Iraq now says that it will, after all, destroy its missiles. President Bush said, 'Please, I used to pull the same trick. There'd be an intervention, I'd make a big show of pouring out the liquor and then there was a case under the floorboards.' #Quote by Bill Maher
Comedy quotes by Christian Finnegan
#61. The thing is, I hate political comedy. I personally loathe it. #Quote by Christian Finnegan
Comedy quotes by Sam Elliott
#62. Hugh Grant is the main man. He's the number one romantic comedy man in the world. #Quote by Sam Elliott
Comedy quotes by Jamie-Lynn Sigler
#63. I think comedy I've learned is really just about relaxing and trusting yourself and allowing yourself to fail. #Quote by Jamie-Lynn Sigler
Comedy quotes by Steve Martin
#64. I just wanted to be in show business. I didn't care if I was going to be an actor or a magician or what. Comedy was a point of the least resistance, really. And on the simplest level, I loved comedy. #Quote by Steve Martin
Comedy quotes by Paul Putner

Comedy quotes by Joe Rogan
#66. So many times I've done a CD, and then the week after I record it, I've got this new tagline that's killer. And it makes the whole bit better. It happens all the time. But that's just the process of comedy. #Quote by Joe Rogan
Comedy quotes by Christine Stovell
#67. I believe in making my potential models comfortable,' he explained when she shot a surprised look at him. 'I'm considerate, unlike some artists who bend their sitters into difficult positions and expect them to stay there for hours. My demands are entirely reasonable.'
For a moment, her libido got interested in his demands. What would it be like to listen to the soft caress of his voice as he told her how he wanted her? To have those midnight-blue eyes roam over every inch of her body? To be passive, helpless, whilst he did whatever he pleased? #Quote by Christine Stovell
Comedy quotes by Matt Walsh
#68. I guess I'm sort of spoiled because, most of the things that I get to do, people know that you're a good improviser, so they allow you at least one improv take, and for comedy, that's great. #Quote by Matt Walsh
Comedy quotes by Mike Birbiglia
#69. I shouldn't say bad things about the illiterate, though..I should write it. That way they won't find out. #Quote by Mike Birbiglia
Comedy quotes by Allison Williams

Comedy quotes by Sigourney Weaver
#71. People are amazed that I do comedy. I always did comedy. #Quote by Sigourney Weaver
Comedy quotes by Damian Barr
#72. Mary the Canary lives in a cloud of perfume and colours. She's an auxiliary nurse by day and a country and western singer by night: bed pans and power ballass.

Comedy quotes by Randeep Hooda

Comedy quotes by John Ridley
#76. As an ex-stand up, I can tell you that a comedy club isn't a place you go looking to get the abuse you just can't seem to find in daily life. The stage is a performer's domain. You protect that domain. You are not on stage to take what's given just 'cause you're getting paid. If you are attacked, you retaliate. #Quote by John Ridley
Comedy quotes by Grant Bowler
#77. Comedy has to be so much cleaner than drama. You can't layer it in the way you can a dramatic performance. Which is why it's more difficult than drama - you don't have so many tricks. #Quote by Grant Bowler
Comedy quotes by Zack Love
#78. Dating someone exclusively for four months in New York is like four years in Anchorage. #Quote by Zack Love
Comedy quotes by Moshe Kasher
#79. In keeping with the theme of "I got my hands on," my brother and I would listen to The Diceman Cometh. That was the dirtiest thing we'd ever heard, and we could listen to that at full volume without fear of penalty, because my mom couldn't hear that either. I wasn't a huge comedy fan growing up, but I definitely listened to Andrew Dice Clay a lot. #Quote by Moshe Kasher
Comedy quotes by Natasha Lyonne
#80. The interesting trick of comedy, in a lot of ways, is to have both the comedy and the grounding of the real thing. You get a real sense of a human being. #Quote by Natasha Lyonne

Comedy quotes by Brett Tate
#84. The Brit's face shares a heritage with a junkyard butt-sniffing mutt. It's a hard-earned moonshine mug, dotted with a hairy mole that looks like a rat's been gnawing on it. His beard looks like a white sneeze. The teeth are jagged and out of alignment, having opened quarts at Jiffy Quick Lube for half a decade. #Quote by Brett Tate
Comedy quotes by Josh Kilmer-Purcell
#85. No matter how beneficial a disappearing act might be for me, I could never tear myself away from a show in progress. Even when the plot's tragic ending is apparent to the entire audience. Perhaps there's a deus ex machina that will lower from the ceiling and turn the whole debacle into a romantic comedy. never can tell. Paid the full ticket price, might as well stay. #Quote by Josh Kilmer-Purcell
Comedy quotes by Nicholas Lea
#86. Comedy and drama are both challenging to me. #Quote by Nicholas Lea
Comedy quotes by Nancy Travis

#89. To be honest, I watch way more dramatic films when I'm chilling at home. I think when you work in comedy, you just want something different in your private life. Makes you feel balanced, I guess. #Quote by Bill Hader

Comedy quotes by James Gunn
#91. I really like people who can do both drama and comedy and not some like middle of the road do both drama and comedy. I'm not talking about some guy who does these bland dramedies all the time.

Comedy quotes by Julian Fellowes
#95. Maggie Smith has a unique sense of comedy, based on a somewhat ironic view of real life, making it both funnier and more sad.

Comedy quotes by Donnie Yen
#100. I did a couple comedies to balance myself as an actor and balance how audiences see Donnie Yen as an actor, and I would even say as a celebrity or icon, to some fans. I want to show that I'm not Terminator. #Quote by Donnie Yen

Comedy quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#103. I seek to sensitize and clarify the essential elements of my soul. I will leave striving for the flags of fame and fortune behind and go where the soul beckons without fearing the decisive outcome. I will travel in a world without boundaries and embrace danger and awe. I will stand as a witness to comedy, beauty, and tragedy and apply the principles of artistic and ascetic forms of awareness to overcome the inherent frustration of enduring a fundamentally painful human existence. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Comedy quotes by John Zakour

Comedy quotes by Tom Stoppard
#107. One of the attractions of translating 'Heroes' is that it's not the kind of play that I write. If it had been, I probably wouldn't have wanted to translate it. There are no one-liners. It's much more a truthful comedy than a play of dazzling wit. #Quote by Tom Stoppard
Comedy quotes by David Rees

It was going to be half concert film, half pseudo-documentary. It was Mick Jagger's idea.The other one was Simple Plan, based on a novel by Scott Smith. It's a great book - really stark, not a comedy - about a guy who finds $4 million in a plane crash and decides to keep it. #Quote by Ben Stiller

Comedy quotes by Jeff Foxworthy
#127. We're all screwed up. And the way Christians mess things up is we act like we've got it going on. And if we would just stay in that place of, 'Hey, we're all screwed up and but for the grace of God, none of us have a shot here.' We need to have a sense of humor about it; that's kind of the way I've always faced my comedy. #Quote by Jeff Foxworthy
Comedy quotes by Gore Vidal
#128. A nation not of men but of laws, intoned John Adams as he, among other lawyers, launched what has easily become the most demented society ever consciously devised by intelligent men. We are now enslaves by laws. We are governed by lawyers. We create little but litigate much. Our monuments are the ever-expanding prisons, where millions languish for having committed victimless crimes or for simply not playing the game of plausible deniability (aka lying) with a sufficiently good legal team. What began as a sort of Restoration comedy, The Impeachment of a President, on a frivolous, irrelevant matter, is suddenly turning very black indeed, and all our political arrangements are at risk as superstitious Christian fundamentalists and their corporate manipulators seem intent on overthrowing two presidential elections in a Senate trial. This is no longer comedy. This is usurpation. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Comedy quotes by Carroll Bryant
#129. Luck is the bastard child of Fate and Destiny. #Quote by Carroll Bryant

Comedy quotes by Subcomandante Marcos Laura Castellanos
#132. Don Quixote is the best book out there on political theory, followed by Hamlet and Macbeth. There is no better way to understand the tragedy and the comedy of the Mexican political system than Hamlet, Macbeth and Don Quixote. They're much better than any column of political analysis. #Quote by Subcomandante Marcos Laura Castellanos
Comedy quotes by Lisa Cholodenko
#133. I think I'm interested in these kinds of character dramas, psychological dramas, domestic dramas, whatever you want to call them - comedy dramas. #Quote by Lisa Cholodenko
Comedy quotes by Jennifer Echols

Makes me want to return all the money I stole from the little old ladies and kick the heroin. #Quote by Jennifer Echols
Comedy quotes by Patricia Caliskan
#135. My parents bedroom was now draped in damask, air heavy with the scent of incense sticks displayed in ornate stands. On the dressing table, a selection of exotic massage oils and a pamphlet on Tantric Breathing techniques. All this from my mother. A woman who called green tea, 'hippy juice. #Quote by Patricia Caliskan
Comedy quotes by Sue Wyshynski
#136. I gulped. But, I mean, everyone bends the truth sometimes to be friendly. What's really weird is that I'm the only one who seems to get in trouble for it. Anyway, what could possibly go wrong this time? #Quote by Sue Wyshynski
Comedy quotes by Christa Miller

Comedy quotes by Allen Covert
#140. I was obsessed with movies when I was younger. During the summer, I would go by myself to a theater down the street from my house. I saw every comedy or science fiction movie that came out. My kids love going to the movies, but 3D scares them. #Quote by Allen Covert
Comedy quotes by Emma Stone
#141. Comedy was my sport. It taught me how to roll with the punches. Failure is the exact same as success when it comes to comedy because it just keeps coming. It never stops. #Quote by Emma Stone
Comedy quotes by Steve Coogan
#142. There's something quite joyful about doing comedy which doesn't really need much analysis. I'm not elitist. I like to do crowd-pleasing stuff which is a bit smart, but is just about belly laughs. #Quote by Steve Coogan
Comedy quotes by Meredith Russo
#143. Just 'cause I'm bi doesn't mean I have magic powers. I'm not the plucky queer sidekick in your romantic comedy. #Quote by Meredith Russo
Comedy quotes by John Zakour
#144. Carol, I thought you didn't liked playing with the minds of normal people."

Comedy quotes by Jessalyn Gilsig

Comedy quotes by Roxane Gay
#147. I love romantic comedies. I know how terrible they are, but I love them! And I don't think that makes me less of a feminist. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Comedy quotes by Seth Green
#148. Jeff Ross has a new show on Comedy Central where he roasts the news. It'll be perfect for people who find Jon Stewart too handsome and funny. #Quote by Seth Green
Comedy quotes by Marty Feldman

Comedy quotes by Kyle Kinane
#150. What is there to say about ChUC other than it's a comedy show done the right way in the right space. Fantastic comics, welcoming audience. Always great. #Quote by Kyle Kinane
Comedy quotes by Howard Shore
#151. I grew up in repertory theaters, so it was comedy one night, drama the next. I'm used to going from one to the other. And I worked for years in television as well. So, I like the interrelationship of it and having a good relationship with a group of artists creating something really where the sum is greater than all of our individual contributions, our parts. #Quote by Howard Shore
Comedy quotes by Nasim Pedrad
#152. I knew at a young age that I wanted to do comedy, and maybe part of that was trying to fit in at school because I had a weird name, and my parents had these accents, and I was definitely a late bloomer. #Quote by Nasim Pedrad
Comedy quotes by Michelle Monaghan
#153. It's really challenging to play comedy. #Quote by Michelle Monaghan
Comedy quotes by Busy Philipps
#154. Jason [Nash] is just someone that I've known socially and through his stand-up, seeing him do different comedy shows, and I just really like him. I think he's a funny guy and he has a unique perspective on being a dad and a husband. #Quote by Busy Philipps
Comedy quotes by Ronald Reagan
#155. Life involves effort and growth. You won't grow by watching a situation comedy, though you can grow by reading a book. I hope we aren't becoming a nation of watchers, because what made us great is that we've always been a nation of doers. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Comedy quotes by Margaret Cho
#156. Life is a tragedy for those who feel and a comedy for those who think. #Quote by Margaret Cho
Comedy quotes by Charles Walters
#157. Timing and pace are important in any film, whether it be comedy or drama. And how better to learn the fundamentals of these show show business ingredients than by dancing? #Quote by Charles Walters
Comedy quotes by Jessica Biel
#158. It's the same kind of preparation you do for something like this you do for anything. It doesn't matter if it's a drama or a comedy, the need to get the emotion and the character arc across is way harder in something like this so was more of a preparation. #Quote by Jessica Biel
Comedy quotes by Jenna Fischer
#159. I studied theater in college, and I really wanted to be an actress and play a lot of different roles. Then I made landing on a television comedy my main focus. #Quote by Jenna Fischer

Comedy quotes by Felicia Day
#162. When the occasional stranger approaches me at a party to say, "Hey, you're Felicia Day. Let's talk about that comic book you were tweeting about last week!" it's the greatest thing in the world. Because it saves me from having to stand in the corner awkwardly, drinking all the Sprite, and then leaving after ten minutes without saying good-bye to my host. #Quote by Felicia Day
Comedy quotes by Geoff Dyer
#163. ...in Dillard it's the comedy of rapture. Or at least it's a comedy that permits prose and thought to soar while inoculating the rapturous against the three ills of which nature writers should live in permanent dread: preciousness, reverence, and earnestness... #Quote by Geoff Dyer
Comedy quotes by Henry Ian Cusick
#164. 'Not Another Happy Ending' is a romantic comedy starring Karen Gillan and Stanley Weber. It is about these two characters and their relationships. #Quote by Henry Ian Cusick
Comedy quotes by Amy Hoggart
#165. It's kind of a camaraderie in the comedy community, people are kind of proud of how badly they go down sometimes, and it's quite nice to join in with that. #Quote by Amy Hoggart
Comedy quotes by B. J. Porter
#166. For a long time networks just wanted to buy imitations of other shows - i.e. Curb (the Enthusiasm or the Office). The word gets out that "Hey, we want to buy something like that" and every comedy producer just starts dreaming up ideas like that. #Quote by B. J. Porter
Comedy quotes by James Corden
#167. I just wanted to perform. I just wanted to perform in whatever capacity, whether it was acting, singing, dancing, comedy - whatever it was, I just loved it and felt at my absolute happiest when I was performing for people. #Quote by James Corden
Comedy quotes by Debra Messing
#168. I love every aspect of the show. I've been very involved. It was important for me to be very involved in, you know, all of the creative elements. And so, you know, it - David, you know, being brought onto the show, you know, that - I always just wanted to make sure that we maintained the sophistication and intelligence of (the) - and the comedy that we were able to establish in the mini-series. #Quote by Debra Messing
Comedy quotes by Rod Dreher
#169. perhaps the greatest poem ever written #Quote by Rod Dreher
Comedy quotes by Shane Carruth
#170. The only thing I can ever do is make a film that I can respond to. I could not make a romantic comedy for college girls. I wouldn't know how that works. #Quote by Shane Carruth
Comedy quotes by Lance Henriksen
#171. You can't do every movie - although I do a lot of them - and the thing I'm longing to do is ... it's not that I think I'm funny ... but I long to do a situation comedy. #Quote by Lance Henriksen
Comedy quotes by Michaela Haze
#172. If you drink anymore, you're going to be positively flammable. #Quote by Michaela Haze
Comedy quotes by Nina Conti
#173. I will remember the night I won the New Comedy Awards, as I was young and unformed, so that sticks in the mind. I've also done a fantastic gig at the Royal Albert Hall, which was amazing. Appearing in the Christopher Guest film was also a real highlight, even if I was only in it for a couple of minutes. #Quote by Nina Conti
Comedy quotes by Nick Kroll
#174. In general in comedy, there are fewer people making a ton of money and a lot more people making a living. For me, the goal is just being able to make exactly the show I wanted to make. #Quote by Nick Kroll
Comedy quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#175. The real meaning of persona is a mask, such as actors were accustomed to wear on the ancient stage; and it is quite true that no one shows himself as he is, but wears his mask and plays his part. Indeed, the whole of our social arrangements may be likened to a perpetual comedy; and this is why a man who is worth anything finds society so insipid, while a blockhead is quite at home in it. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Comedy quotes by Irene Dunne
#176. I appeared with many leading men. But working with Cary Grant was different from working with other actors. He was much more fun! I think we were a successful team because we enjoyed working together tremendously, and that pleasure must have shown through onto the screen. I will always remember two compliments he made me. He said I had perfect timing in comedy and that I was the sweetest smelling actress he ever worked with. #Quote by Irene Dunne
Comedy quotes by Vir Das
#177. I have a rule - 'funny is funny!' When I write comedy, it's not my aim to upset people. I will be offensive, edgy and immature, but I will also be very intelligent and relevant. At my shows, there are no holy cows. #Quote by Vir Das
Comedy quotes by Robyn Schneider
#178. You know how they categorize Shakespeare's plays, right? If it ends with a wedding, it's a comedy. And if it ends with a funeral, it's a tragedy. #Quote by Robyn Schneider
Comedy quotes by John Bradley-West
#179. My tutors at drama school commended and criticised my use of comedy in my acting for a long time at drama school. They said I had a tendency to somehow perform the most tragic of scenes in a slightly flippant way. #Quote by John Bradley-West
Comedy quotes by Lizzy Caplan
#180. I find that working with friends is always the goal, even if it's just one person. Because the comedy community is kind of insular, it's easy to run into people you've worked with, even if you worked with someone on something for a day, or whatever. #Quote by Lizzy Caplan
Comedy quotes by Stewart Lee
#181. Writing this now, God, how I miss the cultural side of the eighties - the rhetoric, the raggedy clothes, the politics, gigs you were frightened to go into, Radio 1 when it had weird bits, Channel 4 when it was radical, the NME when it had writers, and the thrill of discovering underground music and new comedy for yourself. #Quote by Stewart Lee
Comedy quotes by Anne Sweeney
#182. Too many times, adults walk into situations, and people have already put them in a box: 'Oh, you write comedy.' Or, 'You're the development woman.' And it's not just our profession. It's hard to look at someone and say, 'What else is inside?' #Quote by Anne Sweeney
Comedy quotes by Edward Norton
#183. I thought Rounders was a comic movie in its way. First time I directed a movie, I wanted to do a comedy. I don't like things that are superficially one thing or another, mainly. My favorite comedies are really smart, too, and have a lot of levels to them as well. #Quote by Edward Norton
Comedy quotes by John Zakour
#184. So, what you're basically telling me is death is boring but no worse than hanging out with family. #Quote by John Zakour
Comedy quotes by Carroll Bryant
#185. Today I feel like I did tomorrow. #Quote by Carroll Bryant
Comedy quotes by Jonathan Tropper
#186. That's the problem with college kids. I blame Hollywood for skewing their perspective. Life is just a big romantic comedy to them, and if you meet cute, happily-ever-after is a foregone conclusion. So there we were, the pretty blond girl milking her very slight congenital limp in order to seem damaged and more interesting, and the nervous boy with the ridiculous hair trying so hard to be clever, the two of us hypnotized by the syncopated rhythms of our furiously beating hearts and throbbing loins. That stupid, desperate, horny kid I was, standing obliviously on the fault line of embryonic love, when really, what he should have been doing was running for his life. #Quote by Jonathan Tropper
Comedy quotes by Dani Alexander
#187. I had one friend with same-sex orientation, and Dana hadn't spoken to me since I asked her to describe her honeymoon in graphic detail - and then made vibrator noises. #Quote by Dani Alexander
Comedy quotes by Chris Cannon
#188. Since he didn't seem to understand the situation, I felt it my duty to enlighten him. "Wrong. You started this stupid rumor and half the school probably believes it's true. Now you have to stick around and pretend to be my boyfriend to convince everyone I don't have sex with random guys. Not to mention the fact that if you'd kept your mouth shut about getting laid, you wouldn't be in this situation."
He raised a brow. "So you're my punishment? #Quote by Chris Cannon
Comedy quotes by Rainn Wilson
#189. I think that doing comedy and playing Dwight is a service. Not to get grandiose about it, but I have a talent for playing oddball characters and I can make people laugh and that can help bring families together and people will really enjoy it and it puts a smile on their face and I think that is a really great thing. #Quote by Rainn Wilson
Comedy quotes by Heather M. Orgeron
#190. Tear filled eyes glisten in the firelight. She's so fucking beautiful that it hurts to look at her, but it's an ache I hope to feel for as long as I live, because the pain of losing her again...that I don't think I'd survive. #Quote by Heather M. Orgeron
Comedy quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#191. The dimension of space and time, represented by what is transpiring in the here and now, is all that we will ever know. Unlike the continuum of perpetual time and infinite space, everything that we know will experience disruption, dissolution, disintegration, dismemberment, and death. The inevitability of our ending represents the tragic comedy of life. Much of our needless suffering emanates from resisting our impermanence rather than embracing our fate. Only through acceptance of the events and situations that occur in a person's life including suffering, and by releasing our attachments, will a person ever experience enlightenment. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Comedy quotes by Neil Gaiman
#192. There's a glorious sense of freedom in comedy, just allowing myself to tell jokes, allowing myself to interrupt myself and tell old African folk stories that I made up - or didn't - and Jamaican stories. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Comedy quotes by Penn Jillette
#193. I've been fired from a situational comedy with a script they wrote specifically for me because of my voice. #Quote by Penn Jillette
Comedy quotes by Glen Duncan
#194. Naturally torturers giggle while they work: The body's dumb obedience to physics (pull hard enough and this comes off, squeeze tight enough and that pops out) against which the nuances of the victim's personality count for nothing has in it one of the roots of comedy - the spirit's subservience to the flesh. You can cut a head off and shove it in a bag, stick it on a pole, play volleyball or footie with it. Hilarious, among other things. #Quote by Glen Duncan
Comedy quotes by W.C. Fields
#195. The work I'm doing on the screen differs from that of anyone else. My comedy is of a peculiar nature ... no writers have been developed along the lines of my type of comedy and this is why I sometimes have differences with writers, supervisors and directors alike. #Quote by W.C. Fields
Comedy quotes by Deborah Leblanc
#196. When Shaundelle turned and looked back at Nonie she had her lips pursed. "The man say wear whatever you want. Wear black, girl. It's slimmin', not that you need any slimmin' with your skinny self, but it makes me look like I've been dietin' for a week. I don't want to be the only one wearin' black, so wear black, okay? #Quote by Deborah Leblanc
Comedy quotes by Chris Hardwick
#197. With stand-up, there's a little bit of an exaggerated reality because things have to be manipulated to create comedy, to create jokes. #Quote by Chris Hardwick
Comedy quotes by Demetri Martin
#198. I started being a comedy fan when I was, I'm going to guess, like 5 or 6 years old. #Quote by Demetri Martin
Comedy quotes by Alex Borstein
#199. I don't do sketch anymore and sometimes I miss it. But I think what I really miss is that time in my life, it was kind of like college. No kids, no real responsibilities, just comedy, food and late nights. #Quote by Alex Borstein
Comedy quotes by Ted Alexandro
#200. Comedians have varying levels of training. It can range from classically trained actors (like Robin Williams) to people who took comedy classes to folks who just started doing it. That's the beauty of comedy: it's close to a pure meritocracy. #Quote by Ted Alexandro
