I take it you've never done any kind of acting. Being funny has everything to do with acting. Even when your just doing stand-up comedy you're still acting.
Ever hear of things like Comedic timing?
It's all about the delivery of lines, the timing (gaps, stall, dramatic pause) choice of facial expressions, inflection, articulation (kinda the same as inflection). There is a big differnece between telling jokes and being genuinely funny.
Get what i mean?
now that i read that you do get what i mean. In that sentence you made a point then disproved it. Displaying emotions and feelings is acting. you can have writers give you the best jokes, but if you can't deliver them it's not gonna be funny.Originally Posted by hotpotato78
