Comedy is the art of being a Loser. Our society gives
the message that failure is wrong. However in comedy that
message is turned on its head -
we love the loser because we see their vulnerability and
recognise the loser in ourselves. Getting it wrong is getting a
laugh. Comedy is the art of lovability -
but it takes real bravery to show vulnerability.
When we become less afraid to look stupid we become more
free and open. If we don’t get things wrong – we don’t learn.
