“When you live in a leading lady’s body, which I do, you have to constantly prove that you are funny.”…………”I think comedy has to be very fearless, or it just gets bland.”
“Comedy often comes at the expense of others, and to do that smartly, you don’t want to make fun of vulnerable people. You want to make fun of people in power, and so you need to really understand the dynamics of power.”………..”.Comedy requires that you understand as much as possible about the viewpoints of all people and everything that’s going on around you. It genuinely requires a true point of view, a real sense of your own view of things in the world.”……..”Every once in a while I play a true idiot, and they’re really fun to play.”…… “It’s okay to lose. Losing teaches you something. Having to try and going through the trials and tribulations to actually overcome, to get there to win, to triumph, that’s what makes life interesting.” -Elizabeth Banks
