Sketch Comedy Troupe

Famous quotes containing the words sketch, comedy and/or troupe:

    the vagabond began
    To sketch a face that well might buy the soul of any man.
    Then, as he placed another lock upon the shapely head,
    With a fearful shriek, he leaped and fell across the
    picture—dead.
    Hugh Antoine D’Arcy (1843–1925)

    It is comedy which typifies, where it is tragedy which individualizes; where tragedy observes the nice distinctions between man and man, comedy stresses those broad resemblances which make it difficult to tell people apart.
    Harry Levin (b. 1912)

    All I can tell you with certainty is that I, for one, have no self, and that I am unwilling or unable to perpetrate upon myself the joke of a self.... What I have instead is a variety of impersonations I can do, and not only of myself—a troupe of players that I have internalised, a permanent company of actors that I can call upon when a self is required.... I am a theater and nothing more than a theater.
    Philip Roth (b. 1933)
