The art of being funny
Comedy has long been a staple of the arts. From the slapstick antics of the ancient Greeks to the witty banter of modern-day plays, comedy has evolved over time but remains an essential part of theatrical productions. It can be used to poke fun at societal norms and beliefs or simply to provide a break from heavier themes. A modern day master of his craft is Ricky Gervais; here with acting legend, Sir Ian McKellen.
