    Being a funny person does an awful lot of things to you. You feel that you mustn’t get serious with people. They don’t expect it from you, and they don’t want to see it. You’re not entitled to be serious, you’re a clown, and they only want you to make them laugh.

    We’re drinking tea from a Grecian Urn long after
    Your Paphian Fanny let tubercles quell
    Ethereal passion: I know it by your laughter!

    Your audience gives you everything you need. They tell you. There is no director who can direct you like an audience.
