There’s no shortage of dumb comedies. But you know, comedy, it’s got to be more than manipulation. For me, there has to be some point, some message. Frank Capra said a great thing. He said, ‘If you’re going to have the privilege of talking to people for two hours in the dark, you have to take it as a great responsibility.’ And I take it that way, whether it’s comedy or tragedy or anything. So I think there’s a responsible kind of comedy that enlightens us to some extent, makes us think, exposes real hypocrisy, or the real contradictions in society, and that’s useful. That’s valuable. That’s good comedy.
I wish this for everyone.
