  9. I think that comedy really tells you how it is. The other thing about comedy is that - you don't even know if you're failing in drama, but you do know when you're failing in comedy. When you go to a comedy and you don't hear anybody laughing, you know that you've failed.
  10. Everybody wants to laugh - you know that. They need to laugh... people need to laugh.
