I didn't see it coming, But Comedy Central wanted to do it and will air all 13 shows that we did. That's why I'm going out on this tour.

I wanted to take a couple of years off, but that will have to wait because of the show and the tour. (Quote by - Drew Carey)

A lot of the home video companies are not familiar with the classics. They're not aggressive with marketing them, and trying to figure out which ones they should put out.

Human life is basically a comedy. Even its tragedies often seem comic to the spectator, and not infrequently they actually seem to have comic touches to the victim. Happiness probably consists largely in the capacity to detect and relish them. (Quote by - Henry Louis Mencken)

A lot of times black actors get stuck in a box. They're up against a lot of limitations for the kind of films that they get approached about. It's easy to get stuck in a box and just be approached about nothing but urban films. Or, if you start out as a comedian, it's easy for you to be approached about nothing but comedies, and comedies with all black casts. (Quote by - Tyrese Gibson)

I visualized the reactions of children listening. Stunned silence here! So hold the pause for two, three, four.

It is a fast-paced, adorable little comedy. Two young men have the leads in the play. One is a Jewish guy and the other is Italian. There are parts in the play for a handful of other older men and women, but I do not want to give too much about the play away just yet. (Quote by - Donna Adamonis)

Still, it's going to be an extremely diverse fall, It's hard to characterize because of the breadth of what's out there: big new musicals, one major revival, a classic comedy coming back to Broadway and a couple of major pieces of American drama, Seascape and A Touch of the Poet.

Often times, finding a serious idea that can be the foundation of a romantic comedy can be the difference between something that flies off like so many spinning plates or something that has some emotional weight underneath it. It also leads to the kind of actor that you can get for that role. What is often the case in a standard romantic comedy is that it's all about the-girl-and-the-boy-is-kind-of-fun vibe, but with this, you could go for an actor of real depth. (Quote by - Walter Parkes)
