Sitcom quotes by BD Wong
#1. In television, a sitcom is probably the closest thing to what it's like working in the theater. #Quote by BD Wong
Sitcom quotes by Judy Gold
#2. If I was married to a man, and I had the same life situation that I have, it's the perfect recipe for a sitcom. #Quote by Judy Gold
Sitcom quotes by Sharon Horgan
#3. I started writing sketches with Dennis Kelly, who I ended up writing 'Pulling' with. We entered a BBC competition and did quite well, then started writing bits for other people's shows. You wheedle your way in, write pilots and eventually you end up writing a sitcom. #Quote by Sharon Horgan
Sitcom quotes by Jon Krakauer
#4. The accused rapist, Calvin Smith, had graduated from a small-town high school the previous June, where he'd distinguished himself as an athlete. Individuals who knew Smith have described him as "kind," "easygoing," and "goofy." But he had never had sex before meeting Kaitlynn Kelly, and a look at what he has posted on a social media site suggests that he was a frustrated, involuntary celibate. On January 11, 2011, Smith posted a line from the animated sitcom Family Guy on his Facebook page: "women are not people god just put them here for mans entertainment. #Quote by Jon Krakauer
Sitcom quotes by Peter Tork
#5. The Monkees was a straight sitcom, we used the same plots that were on the other situation comedies at the time. So the music wasn't threatening, we weren't threatening. #Quote by Peter Tork
Sitcom quotes by Enrico Colantoni
#6. If actors could actually make a living doing theater, that would be my first choice. Sitcoms are the closest thing to being onstage in front of an audience. If I had to choose, it would be theater and doing the occasional movie once in a while, and spending time doing nothing. #Quote by Enrico Colantoni
Sitcom quotes by Aimee Bender
#7. We're like the couple on the sitcom that has good sparks but never get together for the sake of ratings. #Quote by Aimee Bender
Sitcom quotes by Mila Kunis
#8. When you do a four-camera sitcom, everything is a little schtickier. It's not necessarily that you pick up bad habits, but there is just a very specific way of acting that you fall into on those kinds of multicamera shows, and you have to break those habits when you go in to do other things. #Quote by Mila Kunis
Sitcom quotes by Tyler Perry
#9. It takes a week to do a sitcom in Hollywood. I do a show a day in my studio, three or four shows a week. #Quote by Tyler Perry
Sitcom quotes by Brandy Norwood
#10. I would love to play a main character and then play different characters as well. I would want for it to be a sitcom, multicamera, audience - that's definitely a dream. It's in the works, so ... it's closer than everybody thinks it is. #Quote by Brandy Norwood
Sitcom quotes by Darren Star
#11. When you're doing a single-camera show, it's more buying into a level of reality. I think a sitcom, a four-camera show, doesn't require that so much. I think with a film show, you just need the characters to grow. #Quote by Darren Star
Sitcom quotes by Marya Hornbacher
#12. The leap of faith is this: You have to believe, or at least pretend you believe until you really believe it, that you are strong enough to take life face on. Eating disorders, on any level, are a crutch. They are also an addiction and illness, but there is no question at all that they are quite simply a way of avoiding the banal, daily, itchy pain of life. Eating disorders provide a little drama, they feed into the desire for constant excitement, everything becomes life-or-death, everything is terribly grand and crashing, very Sturm and Drang. And they are distracting. You don't have to think about any of the nasty minutiae of the real world, you don't get caught up in that awful boring thing called regular life, with its bills and its breakups and its dishes and laundry and groceries and arguments over whose turn it is to change the litter box and bedtimes and bad sex and all that, because you are having a real drama, not a sitcom but a GRAND EPIC, all by yourself, and why would you bother with those foolish mortals when you could spend hours and hours with the mirror, when you are having the most interesting sado-machistic affair with your own image? #Quote by Marya Hornbacher
Sitcom quotes by Megyn Price
#13. Finding a way to find humor in things that are hardcore is definitely something that, I think, the sitcom does best. #Quote by Megyn Price
Sitcom quotes by Jim Norton
#14. I couldn't get laid with a sitcom and a rifle. #Quote by Jim Norton
Sitcom quotes by Benny Fine
#15. There will be four ancillary shows on the MyMusic channel, and we'll be updating an entire blog with up-to-the-minute music news. You can visit it like BuzzFeed or Pitchfork and get album reviews. It's all as part of the sitcom experience, written by the characters. #Quote by Benny Fine
Sitcom quotes by Betty White
#16. The writers are the stars of every really successful sitcom. #Quote by Betty White
Sitcom quotes by Janeane Garofalo
#17. Tina Fey is part of a generation of women who have changed the face of comedy at 'Second City,' 'SNL,' in sitcoms and in film. #Quote by Janeane Garofalo
Sitcom quotes by Tom Shales
#18. ABC's intelligently hilarious sitcom 'Modern Family' depicts a gay-male marriage in which both partners are refreshingly dimensional, believable human beings. The writers dare to make them flawed and thus fully delineated, but they're not flawed in the silly, stereotypical ways that once dominated such portrayals. #Quote by Tom Shales
Sitcom quotes by Richard Ford
#19. The kind of happy I was that day at the Vet when "Hawk" Dawson actually doffed his red "C" cap to me, and everyone cheered and practically convulsed into tears - you can't patent that. It was one shining moment of glory that was instantly gone. Whereas life, real life, is different and can't even be appraised as simply "happy", but only in terms of "Yes, I'll take it all, thanks" or "No, I believe I won't." Happy, as my poor father used to say, is a lot of hooey. Happy is a circus clown, a sitcom, a greeting card. Life, though, life's about something sterner. But also something better. A lot better. Believe me. #Quote by Richard Ford
Sitcom quotes by Jeff Kinney
#20. The key to any good comic strip or television sitcom is to reset the board at the end of the episode because people like familiarity. #Quote by Jeff Kinney
Sitcom quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#21. The smartest kid Justin ever met, back in kindergarten, had told him to pretend his parents were characters in a television sitcom. 'Pretend there's a frame around 'em like the Tube, pretend they're a show you're watching. You can go into it if you want, or you can just watch and not go into it. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Sitcom quotes by Rocky Carroll
#22. I went from a sitcom to a hospital drama, feature films. I've kind of been living the actor's dream. I'm not associated with one role or one medium. You're lucky if you're associated with one hit show. #Quote by Rocky Carroll
Sitcom quotes by M.T. Anderson
#23. They're all sitcom openers."


"Everything I think of when I think of really living, living to the full – all my ideas are just the opening credits of sitcoms. See what I mean? My idea of life, it's what happens when they're rolling the credits. My god. What am I, without the feed? It's all from the feed credits. My idea of real life. #Quote by M.T. Anderson
Sitcom quotes by Miranda Hart
#24. Marriage was never a dream or an ambition for me. I thank my real mother for the fact that - unlike my sitcom mother - she never put any pressure on me or my sister to marry. #Quote by Miranda Hart
Sitcom quotes by Harvey Fierstein
#25. CBS really wants me on TV. That's their aim. My aim is to have an all-gay sitcom someday, with heterosexuals as token guest stars. Let them be the next-door neighbors for a change. #Quote by Harvey Fierstein
Sitcom quotes by Bob Newhart
#26. I think there are still words you can't use in family entertainment that you can use in a sitcom today. #Quote by Bob Newhart
Sitcom quotes by Tom Hodgkinson
#27. The terrible irony is that when our current job turns out to provide neither much money nor much fun, we think we can solve the problem by getting a better job. So it goes on: an endless cycle, a miserable set-up, as satirized brilliantly in the UK sitcom The Office. #Quote by Tom Hodgkinson
Sitcom quotes by Jennifer Bini Taylor
#28. While growing up, every sitcom you could think of, I would watch it, and I loved it. #Quote by Jennifer Bini Taylor
Sitcom quotes by John Lithgow
#29. When you end a successful sitcom, the most sensible thing to do is go back to the theater. #Quote by John Lithgow
Sitcom quotes by Tommy Wiseau
#30. The film is better for me than the sitcom. But the sitcom is like much more practical approach, if I may say that, because of the cost. Everything costs money, a lot of people don't realize that. #Quote by Tommy Wiseau
Sitcom quotes by Topher Grace
#31. I really loved when I started doing '70s Show,' though I had never acted before, so it was a great training ground being on a sitcom. #Quote by Topher Grace
Sitcom quotes by Dan Harmon
#32. I always try to use my medium, and if I get into a normal sitcom-writing contest with normal sitcom writers, I'm going to lose. #Quote by Dan Harmon
Sitcom quotes by Benny Fine
#33. We look at 'MyMusic' as the future of the sitcom. #Quote by Benny Fine
Sitcom quotes by Casey Wilson
#34. My mom always worked, and I certainly don't want to look back and think, 'Well, I don't have kids, but I'm glad I did that sitcom.' #Quote by Casey Wilson
Sitcom quotes by Laurie A. Helgoe
#35. In the sitcom Scruns, medicals interns used the supply closet as a hideout when they needed to have a panic attack or a good cry. If you seek private space, you are much more likely to find it. #Quote by Laurie A. Helgoe
Sitcom quotes by James Wolcott
#36. Feature-length film comedy is harder to pull off than the episodic sitcom - it doesn't have the same factory machinery up and running, teams of writers putting familiar characters through permutations - but that doesn't explain the widening quality gap that makes movie humor look like a genetic defective. #Quote by James Wolcott
Sitcom quotes by Ryan Reynolds
#37. Well, I came down to LA initially to join The Groundlings, which is an improv comedy group. I didn't get in, of course, becaue I'm not a part of The Groundlings. I just assumed that I could walk in and take over. So they said: "Hit the road Jack." And I ended up getting an agent instead. They sent me out on a couple of leads and I ended up on a sitcom and Van Wilder thereafter and then pantsless with Sandra Bullock. #Quote by Ryan Reynolds
Sitcom quotes by Miranda Hart
#38. I've always felt a bit of an outsider. It used to worry me that, in terms of TV, I did not look like 'the girlfriend' or 'the daughter'. That pushed me to write my own stuff, as I thought no one else was going to write me a lead in the sitcom. #Quote by Miranda Hart
Sitcom quotes by Anne Tyler
#39. She had always assumed that when she was old, she would have total confidence, finally. But look at her: still uncertain. In many ways she was more uncertain now than she had been as a girl. And often when she heard herself speaking she was appalled at how chirpy she sounded - how empty-headed and superficial, as if she'd somehow fallen into the Mom role in some shallow TV sitcom. What on earth had happened to her? #Quote by Anne Tyler
Sitcom quotes by Tom Shales
#40. 'I Love Lucy,' the first classic, really belonged more to the Wacky Woman genre than the domestic sitcom; 'My Little Margie' and 'I Married Joan' were among the shrill, coarse imitations. #Quote by Tom Shales
Sitcom quotes by Sophie Kinsella
#41. [ ... ] Depressive Episodes.
[I]Episodes.[/i] Like depression is a sitcom with a fun punch line each time. Or a TV box set loaded with cliffhangers. The only cliffhanger in my life is "Will I ever get rid of this s***?" And believe me, it gets pretty monotonous. #Quote by Sophie Kinsella
Sitcom quotes by Ellen DeGeneres
#42. I had done a sitcom and a movie and hosted the Emmys, and all of a sudden, I lost everything. As someone put it at the time, I was suddenly like a Ferrari in neutral. #Quote by Ellen DeGeneres
Sitcom quotes by Rachel Nichols
#43. I'd like to do a comedy, actually. I think it would be great to do a sitcom or something like that. I'm pretty much open to anything. #Quote by Rachel Nichols
Sitcom quotes by Liza Lapira

Sitcom quotes by Judd Nelson
#45. My first love is acting on stage. A sitcom is a hybrid of stage and film. #Quote by Judd Nelson
Sitcom quotes by Brandy Norwood
#46. I just want to continue to do comedy. Comedy, I'm discovering, is my niche. It's what I'm born to do, so I would love to have my own sitcom one day in the future. #Quote by Brandy Norwood
Sitcom quotes by Chris Gethard

Sitcom quotes by Miranda Hart
#51. I am pleased to say that as I get older, I get less and less like the sitcom 'Miranda.' She is really a clown character, a heightened version of the 20-something me. #Quote by Miranda Hart
Sitcom quotes by Bill Burr
#52. Acting in a sitcom or a comedy movie is like a comedy routine with the setups. #Quote by Bill Burr
Sitcom quotes by Jim Gaffigan
#53. The entertainment business is such a strange, crazy perception business that you're either given way too much respect, like people saying, "You should be the head of the sitcom!" Or you're given no respect, where they're like, "You should audition to be the garbage man that lives four houses down." #Quote by Jim Gaffigan
Sitcom quotes by Angela Lansbury
#54. A sitcom. I hate that word. #Quote by Angela Lansbury

Sitcom quotes by Benny Fine

Sitcom quotes by China Chow
#59. I don't want to do television. A TV show sitcom? I don't even watch TV. #Quote by China Chow
Sitcom quotes by Ray Romano
#60. I put myself on tape and the cool thing was that Martin Scorsese had never heard of me. He had never seen [Everybody Loves Raymond]. I was just an unknown actor to him. I don't want to sound conceited, like he has to know who I am, but that seemed a little odd. He's a film genius. He doesn't watch sitcoms. #Quote by Ray Romano
Sitcom quotes by Doug Jones
#61. When I came out to Hollywood in 1985, I thought that I would be sitcom star. I'm a tall, skinny, goofy guy. I thought that I would make a great funny neighbor, or wacky office mate, in a sitcom. #Quote by Doug Jones
Sitcom quotes by Pippa Evans
#62. The strangest thing about writing a sitcom, is never knowing if it will become anything but words on a page. #Quote by Pippa Evans
Sitcom quotes by Patricia Richardson
#63. Good actresses can often accomplish miracles, and it is possible to be someone you've never been or will be. But in a sitcom, there's no time. #Quote by Patricia Richardson
Sitcom quotes by Amy Sherman-Palladino
#64. You simply cannot do a sitcom by committee. It will not work. You've got to have one or two clean, creative voices in charge, and there's got to be some faith by the studio and network in those people to make the right choices. #Quote by Amy Sherman-Palladino
Sitcom quotes by Rami Malek
#65. I think people have a hard time thinking that I could've done a sitcom. #Quote by Rami Malek
Sitcom quotes by Charisma Carpenter
#66. I had developed a sitcom with UPN, but it wasn't picked up. #Quote by Charisma Carpenter
Sitcom quotes by Dan Castellaneta
#67. The humor is essentially dark for a cartoon and sophisticated. But at the same time, being a cartoon gives the writers more freedom than in a normal sitcom. It always pushes the line that, despite human failings, the Simpsons are really decent people. #Quote by Dan Castellaneta
Sitcom quotes by Tony DiSanto
#68. After meeting the family, they really felt like a sitcom family, ... I thought it would be cool if we did a reality show, but told it with the visual language of a sitcom format. #Quote by Tony DiSanto

Sitcom quotes by Ian McKellen
#70. I'm a latecomer to popular TV. This is rather new to me, being in a sitcom. It's been an ambition of mine. #Quote by Ian McKellen
Sitcom quotes by Robert Montgomerie
#71. After watching Donald Trump on C-Span the other day, one can see it being easy to be convinced that what the public sees, at least from the press coverage, is just a bit of "reality television" spilling over into real life. His performance at the gathering was reminiscent of what may have happened had Archie Bunker walked out of the cartoon world of the television sitcom and went to speak at posh affair filled with the wax museum of Washington politicos and the buzzard-esque scowls of the press. All eyes fixed on the performer giving yet another exhibition of theatrical prowess. #Quote by Robert Montgomerie
Sitcom quotes by Isabella Rossellini
#72. It's nice to go and be a guest on a television sitcom. It pays well; it's easy because generally it's a supporting role, so you go, you do two or three things, you're in touch with people there. They're widely popular, so they're seen by many people. #Quote by Isabella Rossellini
Sitcom quotes by Kaitlyn Dever
#73. I've learned a lot from doing the sitcom. I've learned so much about comedic timing. For all the movies I've done, I've played so many different roles. I love both, but I guess in my career maybe I want to stick more to film. #Quote by Kaitlyn Dever
Sitcom quotes by Pippa Evans
#74. If you had of told me age 10 that in 19 years time I would be on a stage in Salford performing with Les Dennis in a sitcom I had written, I would have believed you. #Quote by Pippa Evans
Sitcom quotes by Tricia Helfer
#75. Sitcom hours are silly easy compared to drama. Whenever an actor on a sitcom complains, I feel like smacking them! #Quote by Tricia Helfer
Sitcom quotes by Oliver Jackson-Cohen
#76. There are so many sitcoms. So, when you get to be a part of something that feels exciting to you, you just want to be a part of it. #Quote by Oliver Jackson-Cohen
Sitcom quotes by Ana Gasteyer
#77. I like anything with a live audience. I love sitcom work. I hope it comes back in fashion because I really love it. I love single-camera work, too, but in a different way than that live-audience thing, which is really exciting. #Quote by Ana Gasteyer
Sitcom quotes by Tommy Wiseau
#78. I am actually working on The Neighbors sitcom. We are starting from scratch. I am also working on a comedy movie and a vampire movie. I also have the pilot for The Tommy Wiseau Show and of course The House That Drips Blood On Alex, which we are hoping to make a sequel. #Quote by Tommy Wiseau
Sitcom quotes by Craig Charles
#79. There was never any career plan. When 'Red Dwarf' started I thought we were doing a curious little sitcom on BBC2, I didn't think I was becoming an actor. I didn't see that 21 years later I'd still be talking about it, let alone filming a new one. For me everything's always been an accident. #Quote by Craig Charles
Sitcom quotes by Kristen Ashely
#80. I've entered the looney bin," I told another unwitting customer, this one female.
"It's always like that around here," the customer replied. "That's why I come, it's like walking into a sitcom that could only air on HBO. #Quote by Kristen Ashely
Sitcom quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#81. I felt like - like I don't know what. Like this wasn't real. Like I was in some Goth version of a bad sitcom. Instead of being the A/V dweeb about to ask the head cheerleader to the prom, I was the finished-second-place werewolf about to ask the vampire's wife to shack up and procreate. Nice. - Jacob #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Sitcom quotes by Jim Parsons
#82. There's no audience to wonderfully get in your way when you're doing a single-camera anything, whether it's a sitcom or drama or film. And I do mean that in the best way. #Quote by Jim Parsons
Sitcom quotes by Jamie Foxx
#83. Yeah, the sitcom world is dead. It's all reality. #Quote by Jamie Foxx
Sitcom quotes by Eric Alterman
#84. Americans continue to suffer from a notoriously short attention span. They get mad as hell with reasonable frequency, but quickly return to their families and sitcoms. Meanwhile, the corporate lobbies stay right where they are, outlasting all the populist hysteria. #Quote by Eric Alterman
Sitcom quotes by John Lithgow
#85. What you aspire to on a sitcom is the feeling of live comedy. #Quote by John Lithgow
Sitcom quotes by George R R Martin
#86. It's very hard to find a good child actor. There are a lot of child actors out there, especially in America, and they're cute kids, but most child actors appear on sitcoms where their main role is to be cute and make funny little remarks. #Quote by George R R Martin
Sitcom quotes by James Belushi
#87. Doing a sitcom is like doing a play - you rehearse for three or four days, and then you shoot what you rehearsed on Friday night in front of an audience. An hour-long drama is like shooting a movie. You're shooting 13-14 hour days. The endurance itself is different. #Quote by James Belushi
Sitcom quotes by Ray Romano
#88. The only thing I miss from the sitcom format is that immediate gratification of when you're, if we're talking about comedy, of the live audience. #Quote by Ray Romano
Sitcom quotes by Josh Thomas
#89. Sitcom storylines are usually incredibly contrived. #Quote by Josh Thomas
Sitcom quotes by Tahj Mowry
#90. I've been very busy working on the ABC Family sitcom, 'Baby Daddy.' #Quote by Tahj Mowry
Sitcom quotes by Julie Benz
#91. When I first started I was always known as The Girl on the Sitcom with the Funny Voice. #Quote by Julie Benz
Sitcom quotes by Eddie Huang
#92. Xiang wei is the character a good dish has when it's robust, flavorful, and balanced but still maintains a certain light quality. That flavor comes, lingers on your tongue, stays long enough to make you crave it, but just when you think you have it figured out, it's gone. Timing is everything. Soup dumplings, sitcoms, one-night stands - good ones leave you wanting more. #Quote by Eddie Huang
Sitcom quotes by Ron Eldard
#93. I have to say ... Justine Bateman may be the most underrated sitcom actress ever. #Quote by Ron Eldard
Sitcom quotes by Nathan Fillion
#94. Basically, after an ABC sitcom I did, I ended up with a holding deal with 20th Century Fox. Absolutely cool. It pays you to be unemployed. And the bigger the entity that gives you the deal, the better. #Quote by Nathan Fillion
Sitcom quotes by Angie Thomas
#95. I've always had this theory that God is a sitcom writer who loves to put me in ridiculous situations. #Quote by Angie Thomas
Sitcom quotes by Judy Gold
#96. My desire for my own sitcom began as a little girl - I spent hours lying on my belly on the shag carpeting getting lost in the world of the '70s sitcom. All I wanted to do was run away to the Brady house, The Partridge Family bus; even the project on 'Good Times' seemed better than Clark, NJ. #Quote by Judy Gold
Sitcom quotes by Garry Marshall
#97. I was never ambitious. I just wanted to have quiet, calm, listen to public radio and say, hello, how are you? Sit down, rest. But I had an early partner named Fred Freeman, a wonderful writer who I met at Northwestern. And I thought we were doing very well with "Jack Paar," and he said, no, we got to go to Hollywood. We got to write sitcom. It's the coming thing. #Quote by Garry Marshall
Sitcom quotes by Darrell Hammond
#98. I'll get to make a lot of money and do some bad sitcoms. #Quote by Darrell Hammond
Sitcom quotes by Kevin Nealon
#99. It seems like all the sitcoms on now, the families are kind of dysfunctional. #Quote by Kevin Nealon
Sitcom quotes by Summer Sanders
#100. I watched some serious '80s television. 'Alice,' 'Good Times,' 'The Jeffersons,' 'Family Ties,' 'Cheers' ... every night it was eat dinner, watch 'Cheers.' I was actually on 'Jeopardy' with Rebecca Lobo and Dot Richardson, and we were laughing because I was just nailing every random '80s trivia question - sitcom, theme music, movie, you name it. #Quote by Summer Sanders
Sitcom quotes by Walter Mosley
#101. It's not that racism doesn't exist. Lots of people in New York, and elsewhere, hate because of color and gender, religion and national origin. It's just that I rarely worry about those things because there's a real world underneath all that nonsense; a world that demands my attention almost every second of the day.
Racism is a luxury in a world where resources are scarce, where economic competition is an armed sport, in a world where even the atmosphere is plotting against you. In an arena like that racism is more of a halftime entertainment, a favorite sitcom when the day is done. #Quote by Walter Mosley
Sitcom quotes by Mike Judge
#102. Yeah, sometimes it gets a little sappy for me, but I'm tired of hearing about dysfunctional families in sitcoms. That's been done to death, and that's probably what everybody expected from me. But that's not what I wanted to do. #Quote by Mike Judge
Sitcom quotes by David Alan Basche
#103. I love the sitcom schedule. It takes a week to make an episode, but we don't work on weekends. I'm usually done in time to get home for dinner with my wife and daughter. #Quote by David Alan Basche
Sitcom quotes by Laura Bradley Rede
#104. Listen, I have been through Hell in the last few hours. I have been chased and clawed and bitten by vampires - twice! One of them being you! And my leg is torn and my mind is blown and I'm wearing somebody else's pants! I need to sleep, I need to eat, I need to wear my own damn clothes, and what I don't need is for some vampire to smile at me all amused like I'm the wife in a fifties sitcom! #Quote by Laura Bradley Rede
Sitcom quotes by Casey Kasem
#105. I probably would be continuing to do voice-overs, continuing to do cartoon shows, and at the same time I'd probably be on a sitcom or a dramatic television show. #Quote by Casey Kasem
Sitcom quotes by Tiffany Madison
#106. Women's liberation is one thing, but the permeation of anti-male sentiment in post-modern popular culture - from our mocking sitcom plots to degrading commercial story lines - stands testament to the ignorance of society. Fair or not, as the lead gender that never requested such a role, the historical male reputation is quite balanced.
For all of their perceived wrongs, over centuries they've moved entire civilizations forward, nurtured the human quest for discovery and industry, and led humankind from inconvenient darkness to convenient modernity. Navigating the chessboard that is human existence is quite a feat, yet one rarely acknowledged in modern academia or media. And yet for those monumental achievements, I love and admire the balanced creation that is man for all his strengths and weaknesses, his gifts and his curses. I would venture to say that most wise women do. #Quote by Tiffany Madison
Sitcom quotes by John Cleese
#107. Nerves are always a big problem for me, which is why I loved doing American sitcoms. Because you know when you do the take in front of the audience that you're going to do it again afterwards. A minute after you finish, you just go and do it again. So, there's that sort of safety net. And then if you made a little mistake or two, they'll go pick it up, so there's nothing to worry about. #Quote by John Cleese
Sitcom quotes by Tatyana Ali
#108. I was only 11 when we filmed the pilot. The idea of a rapper being a star on a sitcom just wasn't heard of. #Quote by Tatyana Ali
Sitcom quotes by Liane Moriarty
#109. I can hardly bear to think of ourselves hugging and crying and making giggly phone calls, like we were in some inane sitcom. We actually discussed names. Names! I want to shout back through the years at myself, "Just because you're pregnant doesn't mean you get a baby, you idiots! #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Sitcom quotes by Megan Mullally
#110. Nobody's ever kept their sitcom character going after the show's off the air. #Quote by Megan Mullally
Sitcom quotes by Mike O'Malley
#111. A lot of people give actors credit when they gain weight for a role in a drama when they win an Oscar, but when you're doing a sitcom, people don't give you a lot of credit, because you've got to keep your weight on for five or six years if it's successful. #Quote by Mike O'Malley
Sitcom quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#112. Inside the hole, the red lips say, "we all grew up with the same television shows. It's like we all have the same artificial memory implants. We remember almost none of our real childhoods, but we remember everything that happened to sitcom families. We have the same basic goals. We all have the same fears."
The lips say, "The future is not bright. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Sitcom quotes by Jerry Stiller
#113. Being on a sitcom stops me from getting Alzheimer's. #Quote by Jerry Stiller
Sitcom quotes by Nick Hornby
#114. It's not like anyone said anything that's memorable, or wise, or acute; it's more a mood thing. For the first time in my life I felt as though I'm in an episode of thirtysomethibng rather than an episode of... of... of some sitcom that hasn't been made yet about three guys who work in a record shop and talk about sandwich fillings an sax solos all day, and I love it. And I know thirtysomethibng is soppy and cliche'd and American and naff, I can see that. But when you're sitting in a one-bedroom flat in Crouch End and your business is going down the toilet and your girlfriend's gone off with the guy from the flat upstairs, a starring role in a real-life episode of thirtysomethibng, with all the kids and marriages and jobs and barbecues and k.d. lang CDs that this implies, seems more than one could possibly ask of life. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Sitcom quotes by John Lithgow
#115. I always tell that to young people - go to college, do theater, work with an audience. Don't try to learn how to act in front of millions and millions of people. Don't make that your first ambition, to be on a sitcom or get into the movies. Learn who you are as an actor, and the best way to do that is to do it in front of an audience. #Quote by John Lithgow
Sitcom quotes by Matt Groening
#116. 'The Simpsons' from the very beginning was based on our memories of brash '60s sitcoms - you had a main title theme that was bombastic and grabbed your attention - and when you look at TV shows of the 1970s and '80s, things got very mild and toned down and ... obsequious. #Quote by Matt Groening
Sitcom quotes by Hector Elizondo
#117. Definitely not a sitcom, that's my first condition. No sitcoms. #Quote by Hector Elizondo
Sitcom quotes by Dave Foley
#118. I like the sitcom, as a structure. #Quote by Dave Foley
Sitcom quotes by John Lloyd
#119. I can help you shape your sitcom, I can help you think about what could make your sketch show better, but it won't help you get you a commission. #Quote by John Lloyd
Sitcom quotes by Hannibal Buress
#120. With sitcom writing, you're trying to write stories. #Quote by Hannibal Buress
Sitcom quotes by Daniel Baldwin
#121. I would never do another sitcom. It was so boring I wanted to pull my fingernails off. #Quote by Daniel Baldwin
Sitcom quotes by Jasika Nicole
#122. The most dramatic moves I have made as an actor have been from stage to screen and from sitcom to drama. #Quote by Jasika Nicole
Sitcom quotes by Tom Everett Scott
#123. One of my first jobs ever as an actor was working with Julie White on a sitcom called 'Grace Under Fire.' #Quote by Tom Everett Scott
Sitcom quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#124. Yeah, but nowadays it's all you see anymore is cops, the tube is saturated with fucking cop shows, just being regular guys, only tryin to do their job, folks, no more threat to nobody's freedom than some dad in a sitcom. Right. Get the viewer population so cop-happy they're beginning to be run in. Good-bye Johnny Staccato, welcome and while you're at it please kick my door down, Steve McGarrett. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Sitcom quotes by Seth MacFarlane
#125. When 'Family Guy' started, we wanted to make it more like a sitcom. And there was very little music. #Quote by Seth MacFarlane
Sitcom quotes by Norm MacDonald
#126. After months of speculation, the sitcom star Ellen DeGeneres admitted that yes, she's gay. Inspired by her courage, today, diet-guru Richard Simmons admitted that he is really, really, really, really gay. #Quote by Norm MacDonald
Sitcom quotes by John Lithgow
#127. I can't imagine doing an hour-long dramatic series because it's so much work. A sitcom is a wonderful gig. You work from 10 to 4 every day, it's fun, and you get to live at home. #Quote by John Lithgow
Sitcom quotes by Kody Keplinger
#128. On the ground, Cash gave a signal, and all the guys lined up by the pool. In unison, they stripped off their shirts and tossed them onto the grass. An audible sigh- like the ones you hear on a sitcom that is "filmed in front of a live studio audience"- filled the room. It was almost funny, really. Such a strong reaction to a bunch of shirtless boys. #Quote by Kody Keplinger
Sitcom quotes by Jasper Fforde
#129. Everything comes to an end. A good bottle of wine, a summer's day, a long-running sitcom, one's life, and eventually our species. The question for many of us is not that everything will come to an end but when. And can we do anything vaguely useful until it does? #Quote by Jasper Fforde
Sitcom quotes by Dan Harmon
#130. When I was a kid I never knew the difference between a sitcom and a drama. I just knew what my parents were watching and what was making them happy. #Quote by Dan Harmon
Sitcom quotes by Dick Van Dyke
#131. I do miss the rhythms of comedy. And I've never been able to perform very well without an audience. The sitcoms I've done had them. It was like doing a little play. #Quote by Dick Van Dyke
Sitcom quotes by David Sedaris
#132. A lot of our outlawed terms were invented by black people and then picked up by whites, who held on to them way past their expiration date. 'My bad,' for example, and 'I've got your back' and 'You go, girlfriend.' They're the verbal equivalents of sitcom grandmothers high-fiving one another, and on hearing them, I wince and feel ashamed of my entire race. #Quote by David Sedaris
Sitcom quotes by Christopher Meloni
#133. I took acting classes in college, and once I graduated, I decided to give acting a shot when I couldn't really think of anything else to do. It took me a couple of years to get an agent, and my first big break was The Fanelli Boys, which was a sitcom on NBC. Then I did a few television movies. #Quote by Christopher Meloni
Sitcom quotes by Erika L. Sánchez
#134. It's so stupid, I know, to want your life to be a sitcom #Quote by Erika L. Sánchez
Sitcom quotes by Eve Golden
#135. Blonde movie stars in the 1950s seem to have been pretty much divided between breathy bombshells (Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield) and slim, elegant swans (Grace Kelly, Eva Marie Saint). Producers didn't really know what to do with Judy Holliday, a brilliant, versatile actress who simply didn't fit into any easy category. Though she left behind a handful of delightful films, one can't help feeling a sense of waste that her gifts were not better handled by Hollywood (or, for that matter, by Broadway). Perhaps, like Lucille Ball, Judy Holliday would have blossomed with a really good sitcom; but, unlike Lucy, she never got one. #Quote by Eve Golden
Sitcom quotes by Kurt Sutter
#136. My wife, Katey Sagal, has transformed herself from a sitcom cartoon to a dramatic powerhouse. #Quote by Kurt Sutter
Sitcom quotes by Chyler Leigh
#137. I'm always down to do a sitcom. I did 'That '80s Show' back in the day and that was a really great experience. #Quote by Chyler Leigh
Sitcom quotes by Ben Savage
#138. A lot of people say the sitcom is dead. I think they're right to some extent, in that the shows they're putting out are all the same. #Quote by Ben Savage
Sitcom quotes by Kym Whitley
#139. I've thought my show would be a sitcom or a talk show. Never in a million years would I have thought my show would be docu-series/reality because you always think reality is something crazy. #Quote by Kym Whitley
Sitcom quotes by Lea Thompson
#140. 'Caroline In The City' was such an interesting thing, because I'd never been on the set of a sitcom or even auditioned for a sitcom when they gave me that part. #Quote by Lea Thompson
Sitcom quotes by Neil Patrick Harris
#141. I don't know, on a sitcom, and in theatre especially, you have to really be listening to an audience. And if you're losing them, you can hear the sniffs, and the playbills shuffling and whatnot. #Quote by Neil Patrick Harris
Sitcom quotes by Christopher Titus
#142. We kinda hated sitcoms when we sat down and talked about this. We wanted to do something that was in the sitcom vain but totally different. #Quote by Christopher Titus
Sitcom quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#143. Don't know if it's good or bad that a Google search on "Big Bang Theory" lists the sitcom before the origin of the Universe #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Sitcom quotes by Bill Burr
#144. Like most comics, I tried to come up with a sitcom idea that was based around my life. And it didn't work out. But maybe because it didn't work out, that's why I ended up on 'Breaking Bad;' I don't know. #Quote by Bill Burr
Sitcom quotes by Stockard Channing
#145. It would be interesting if this sitcom works, so I could be doing one thing all the time instead of going back and forth between all this different media which I sort of thrive on, I'm a bit of a moving target in that way. #Quote by Stockard Channing
Sitcom quotes by Craig Ferguson
#146. The truth is, you win the Lotto. That's really how you have to approach it. You're a lottery winner when you get a sitcom and it goes. #Quote by Craig Ferguson
Sitcom quotes by David Alan Grier
#147. I had done the sitcom thing to lesser and lesser degrees of success. #Quote by David Alan Grier
Sitcom quotes by Danny Pintauro
#148. There is absolutely no way for a sitcom to be a challenge to me. #Quote by Danny Pintauro
Sitcom quotes by Michael Patrick King
#149. The thing you can't let go of is gravity. The reality of gravity in writing. If someone says something really mean in a sitcom, and the next wave isn't a reaction to the reality of that, you start losing relatability. In a lot of romantic comedies, they throw out the rules of life. #Quote by Michael Patrick King
Sitcom quotes by Nancy Travis
#150. I really enjoy doing sitcom television. It allows me to stay in Los Angeles and spend more time with my husband and kids. #Quote by Nancy Travis
Sitcom quotes by Mayim Bialik
#151. I was raised on the purest comedy there is: 'I Love Lucy.' I was raised watching 'Three's Company' and sitcoms of the '70s and '80s. #Quote by Mayim Bialik
Sitcom quotes by Ty Burrell
#152. It's the opposite on a sitcom. People crave the character to not learn from their mistakes. They want to just see the situation, and then see how that character is going to react to that particular chaotic catastrophe. That's just my take on it, anyway. I don't really get too hung up on what the future of the show is. #Quote by Ty Burrell
Sitcom quotes by Monica Drake
#153. The Arboretum's overgrown grass rustled. The branches of an apple tree shook as though an animal had jumped from one to the next. A wind slid up my thighs, in the night, under my short nightgown. Crickets and cicadas made a sound like distant laughing children, the laugh track to a sitcom that didn't end. It was like the grass was full of tiny giggling babies. So beautiful, and creepy. #Quote by Monica Drake
Sitcom quotes by James Wolcott
#154. Like Andy Warhol and unlike God Almighty, Larry King does not presume to judge; all celebrities are equal in his eyes, saints and sinners alike sharing the same 'Love Boat' voyage into the dark beyond, a former sitcom star as deserving of pious send-off as Princess Diana. #Quote by James Wolcott
Sitcom quotes by Andrea Anders
#155. I'm ridiculously fortunate to get a chance to experience the sitcom world. The schedule is extremely easy, and you get fed as an artist because you're not only working on a project, but you get to work with cameras, and you get the audience there. #Quote by Andrea Anders
Sitcom quotes by Jeff Lindsay
#156. We were watching a sitcom, I don't remember which. There were many of them at the time that all could be lumped together under the title of Funny Minority and the White Guy. #Quote by Jeff Lindsay
Sitcom quotes by Rosamund Kendal
#157. The time that I spend in hospital is so dauntingly real that it makes my activities and emotions outside of working hours feel childish and superficial, like a sitcom, a half-hour television comedy. #Quote by Rosamund Kendal
Sitcom quotes by Ray Romano
#158. For a sitcom sex scene, you get in bed and that's the end of the scene. It quick and it was fast, but it was foreign territory for me. Not for Bobby. Bobby Cannavale has been down that road before. With my character, I think it will be a one-and-out. I don't think you'll see my character [in Vinyl] naked again, so relax everybody. #Quote by Ray Romano
Sitcom quotes by Nick Robinson
#159. I'm very lucky to be on 'Melissa and Joey' because it's a multi-cam sitcom, and it was a nice transition from theatre because it's taped in front of a live audience. #Quote by Nick Robinson
Sitcom quotes by Kevin Dillon
#160. Before 'Entourage,' I couldn't get a sitcom. #Quote by Kevin Dillon
Sitcom quotes by Neil Patrick Harris
#161. The TV schedule is fantastic. It allows you to have a life. Theater actors are so disciplined - especially if you're doing musicals, you have to be in shape physically, mentally, and have to be on your game all the time. That's exhausting. On TV, especially a sitcom, you have a lot of free time to play. #Quote by Neil Patrick Harris
Sitcom quotes by Judah Friedlander
#162. I had not met Tina Fey before I auditioned for '30 Rock'. Some people think we're old friends from 'Second City' days. I had always been a fan of Tina's. But I actually never planned on being in a sitcom. #Quote by Judah Friedlander
Sitcom quotes by Tara Lynne Barr
#163. I love a good comedy, but the slapstick sitcom belly-laugh sort of comedy - the multicam thing - is not really where my interests lie. I'm very interested in single-cam, in intimate portraits. I like it when comedies have a little bit of realism and a little bit of darkness to them. It makes them more palatable and more relatable and grounded. #Quote by Tara Lynne Barr
Sitcom quotes by Robert Webb
#164. If I told my 18-year-old self that one day I'd have a sitcom and a sketch show on TV, I think he'd just drum his fingers and go, 'When? How long is that going to take?' #Quote by Robert Webb
Sitcom quotes by Paul Reiser
#165. Jerry Lewis played on the very first season of Mad About You, and he played basically himself, but he was called some other name. He said he's never done it; he'd never done a half-hour of [sitcom] television. This was 1992 or '93. And I said, "Well how is that?" And he goes, "Nobody ever asked me." It's like the pretty girl at the dance; everybody's too afraid to ask. #Quote by Paul Reiser
Sitcom quotes by Amy Sherman-Palladino
#166. With a sitcom, everyday you do a run through, and people are judging you, and the scripts are being changed nightly, nightly, nightly. #Quote by Amy Sherman-Palladino
Sitcom quotes by Roone Arledge
#167. Television is a powerful medium that has to be used for something better than sitcoms and police shows. On the other hand, if you don't recognize the forces that play on what people watch and what they don't then you're a fool and you should be in a different business. #Quote by Roone Arledge
Sitcom quotes by Mike Epps
#168. I can remember when I was a baby and my mother was there watching the show. I went and bought 100 episodes and watched them. I respect it so much that the sitcom itself and Ed Norton; I'm not playing Ed Norton but my version of it, cause I'm a black man. #Quote by Mike Epps
Sitcom quotes by Anne Taylor Fleming
#169. We were the daughters of the post-World War II American dream, the daughters of those idealized fifties sitcom families in which father knew best and mother knew her place and a kind of disappointment, and tense, unspoken sexuality rattled around like ice cubes in their nightly cocktails. #Quote by Anne Taylor Fleming
Sitcom quotes by Tim Allen
#170. Nothing's as easy as it is on a sitcom. Issues that we take care of in 20 minutes on the show can stretch out over years in real families. #Quote by Tim Allen
Sitcom quotes by Matt Taibbi
#171. The time to start worrying about the consequences of our editorial decisions was before we raised a generation of people who get all of their information from television, and who believe that the solution to every problem is simple enough that you can find it before the 21 minutes of the sitcom are over. Or #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Sitcom quotes by Nicholson Baker
#172. One day the English language is going to perish. The easy spokenness of it will perish and go black and crumbly - maybe - and it will become a language like Latin that learned people learn. And scholars will write studies of Larry Sanders and Friends and Will & Grace and Ellen and Designing Women and Mary Tyler Moore, and everyone will see that the sitcom is the great American art form. American poetry will perish with the language; the sitcoms, on the other hand, are new to human evolution and therefore will be less perishable. #Quote by Nicholson Baker
Sitcom quotes by Bill Engvall
#173. You know as well as I do that the family sitcom was the stalwart of TV for God knows how many decades. #Quote by Bill Engvall
Sitcom quotes by John Barnes
#174. Romney sounds like he wants to be the nice uncle in a sitcom, Santorum sounds like he wants to be a twelfth-century archbishop, Gingrich sounds like he wants to go to outer space, and Paul sounds like he came from there. #Quote by John Barnes
Sitcom quotes by Miranda Hart
#175. Writing humour certainly involves pain. A sitcom is 6 months of writing pain! #Quote by Miranda Hart
Sitcom quotes by Steven Weber
#176. My experience tells me that any time you hear people laughing on a sitcom, it's the writers who happen to be closest to the microphones - not the audience. #Quote by Steven Weber
Sitcom quotes by Miranda Hart
#177. When my sitcom 'Miranda' first became successful, I was so in the thick of working and I was so stressed that I didn't really enjoy the moment. You suddenly look back and go, 'Gosh, you've just got to enjoy every day.' And now I wake up and literally pinch myself every day. #Quote by Miranda Hart
Sitcom quotes by Rene Auberjonois
#178. The only other series I worked on a regular basis was Benson, and that was a sitcom, so there really wasn't a chance to go deeply into the characters. #Quote by Rene Auberjonois
Sitcom quotes by James Wolk
#179. I started in theater. I would liken sitcom work more to theater work than I would, perhaps, to dramatic television. It's so quick. It kind of feels like the pace of a play. #Quote by James Wolk
Sitcom quotes by Janet Evanovich
#180. Are you laughing? I can feel you laughing. My life isn't funny!" "Babe, your life should be a prime-time sitcom. #Quote by Janet Evanovich
Sitcom quotes by Amy Sedaris
#181. I just hate the whole idea of labeling anything as a comedy. If you tell me something's funny, I'll want to rebel against it. When I go to a bookstore and see books categorized as humor, I get furious. Don't tell me that a book is funny. Let me decide if it's funny. It's the same with sitcoms. You call something a sitcom and people expect it to be funny. And that ruins everything. #Quote by Amy Sedaris
Sitcom quotes by Steve Carell
#182. Well, on a personal level, I would never want to take on a character who didn't have some redeemable qualities. Even the worst of people, such as Michael Scott in The Office [Carell's character in the US version of the Ricky Gervais sitcom], have some decent human qualities that you can latch onto. #Quote by Steve Carell
Sitcom quotes by Bill Engvall
#183. My goal is for 'The Bill Engvall Show' to be a show the networks look at and say, 'Ooh, maybe we should get back to the family sitcom.' #Quote by Bill Engvall
Sitcom quotes by Roseanne Barr
#184. After my 1985 appearance on 'The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson,' I was wooed by producers in Hollywood, who told me they wanted to turn my act into a sitcom. #Quote by Roseanne Barr
Sitcom quotes by Nicole Sullivan
#185. It's a lot easier, I think, to be an actor in a movie than to spin a joke on a sitcom. #Quote by Nicole Sullivan
Sitcom quotes by Tiffanie DeBartolo
#186. I was the least impressed with, a woman who thought Henry Miller was a police sitcom from the seventies. #Quote by Tiffanie DeBartolo
Sitcom quotes by Michael Schur
#187. Mockumentary formats are great for a couple of things. One of them is delivering the toughest part of any sitcom episode, what writers call "pipe" - the nuts and bolts of the story where you explain what's happening, the boring plot stuff. #Quote by Michael Schur
Sitcom quotes by Eric McCormack
#188. But I was ready for it and I knew I could do it. I've just turned 40, I have a son and I feel more settled and driven than ever. I think my 40s will be my most prolific time. It's a very rare life you get to lead as a sitcom guy. #Quote by Eric McCormack
Sitcom quotes by Lisa Kudrow
#189. On network TV, I'm still Phoebe to people, and it would be hard to convince them otherwise in the bright lights of a sitcom. #Quote by Lisa Kudrow
Sitcom quotes by Corbin Bernsen
#190. The lazy part of me would love to do a sitcom where I could work three days a week and make a fortune. #Quote by Corbin Bernsen
Sitcom quotes by Will Smith
#191. Coming from sitcom television and coming from music you burn up every single second. You don't leave anything there. You burn it up and you pass out when you walk off stage, so I took that concept into acting. #Quote by Will Smith
Sitcom quotes by Ice Cube
#192. While I had done the movies through Revolution Studios, we own the sitcom. It was a situation where, once the team was assembled, I knew we could create something really, really good. #Quote by Ice Cube
Sitcom quotes by Casey Wilson
#193. I use a method approach to all my sitcom work. #Quote by Casey Wilson
Sitcom quotes by Bob Newhart
#194. I have to warn you, I'm not just some sitcom guy. I'm now an author. #Quote by Bob Newhart
Sitcom quotes by Dave Attell
#195. I'm not a movie guy, I'm not a TV sitcom guy, but whatever seems to fit and is funny is good for me. #Quote by Dave Attell
Sitcom quotes by Kathryn Newton
#196. I was on a sitcom called 'Gary Unmarried' for 37 episodes, and then I was in 'Bad Teacher' with Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake. #Quote by Kathryn Newton
Sitcom quotes by John Stamos
#197. I grew up doing sitcoms and theater and even playing with the Beach Boys, where you're programmed to perform, your body gets into a rhythm and you know it has to perform. #Quote by John Stamos
