Comic

Famous quotes containing the word comic:

    And in a comic mood
    In mid-air take to bed a wife.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    Of course, the comic figure in all this is the long-suffering Mr. Wilkes. Mr. Wilkes—who can’t be mentally faithful to his wife and won’t be unfaithful to her technically.
    Sidney Howard (1891–1939)

    The deeply thoughtful and human consciousness of a Macbeth is not found in comedy. Comic action tends to be as Bergson described it, physical or purblind, instead of highly conscious. Similarly, the great comic actor specializes in the presentation of mental obtuseness.
    William G. McCollom (b. 1911)
