What is Comedy? Comedy is the art of making people laugh without making them puke
At those times I got into... I suppose you call it a rut. I used to do comedy, comedy, comedy and I suddenly thought I ought to break away from this somehow.

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.

I think that comedy is hard, but I really enjoyed it. It's nice when you can get the guy to laugh. I think it's breathtaking.
I can do comedy, so people want me to do that, but the other side of comedy is depression. Deep, deep depression is the flip side of comedy. Casting agents don't realize it but in order to be funny you have to have that other side.
It's a great counter to doing the soap because it's a comedy. It's real physical comedy.
I've never heard of a comedy that hasn't had reshoots, especially for the ending of a movie in a comedy.
I always approach comedy roles pretending they aren't funny.
Tragedy is a close-up; comedy, a long shot.
