Comic Actors: Laughter is the Reward

December 13, 2023 @ 3:00 pm


Unlike our favorite comedians who can get up in front of an audience and tell jokes for more than an hour, numerous serious actors over the decades have also made us laugh as they delivered memorable, comical performances; some in the movies, some on television, some on stage. As Mel Brooks reminds us, “Funny is in the writing, not in the performing. The actors must be serious. Only the situation must be absurd.” Cary Grant observed, “Comedy holds the greatest risk for the actor – and laughter is the reward.” In this fun, fast-paced, and highly interactive program, Lenny spotlights several great comic actors. This event is also available virtually.
