I have an interest in comedy.
I like funny. Like watching it, listening to it, and yes I do try to write and draw it whenever I can.
Such is my interest in comedy I have looked into how it works.
There's a few things that tend to work...
Someone Else's misfortune. This can be made funnier if it's something bad happening to someone you ether hate, or some one you identify with. (He's like me, but his life's crapper than mine, which means I'm winning, and that's funny.)
A surprising thing happening.
A shift in perception (I thought that stuff was this way, but it turns out stuffs not like that at all!)
A true thing that you didn't realize was true.
Repetition. Ha ha, that was funny, oh it happened again ha ha, Oh look it's going to happen again, no wait it's happened a different way! what a surprising thing to happen Ha ha ha!
Best laid plans turning to crap.
So it struck me as similar to comedy when just as I've been going on about how inside of 15 months I might be able to pay off the various overdrafts I've acquired a gust of wind sends a load of rubble down my chimney!
Builders call it a "belly" when a wall relaxes or something and lets it all hang out. Look at the state of it! I can't believe it's some how still up!
Not unlike comedy. It just lacked good timing really...
Me standing in front of fire place punching the air."Ha Ha! I'm going to be free and clear yes! Suck on that huge debt!"
"What the hell's all this crap?"
"It's going to cost me how much?.. Oh for crying out loud!"
So for the time being at least it's looking like I won't be much worse or better off.
"Ha ha! whoop yeah! No worse or better off! Yeah! stuff's the same! Whoop!"
