Almanac: Simon Callow on comedy
"It may have been that worst of all possible things, a comedy in which the company shrieked with laughter during rehearsals. Laughter is a very serious business, a science. The important thing is to give the audience pleasure, not to have pleasure yourself."
Simon Callow, Orson Welles: The Road to Xanadu
