I think it is a very funny show. Actually, we all think it is a funny show. Nevertheless, past experience has taught me that there are no guarantees in theater. Something I think is screamingly funny, doesn't get a giggle from one audience, while a different audience will carry on like the show is a mix of the Marx Brothers, the Three Stooges, and Robin Williams. There is no predicting how people react. All we can do is present the lines in the best way we know how and hope for the best.
There is some confusion about who actually said this, but a very wise actor from some earlier era was heard to say on his deathbed, "Dying is easy. Comedy is hard!" Ain't that the truth!
Here's hoping for a great opening night....after all, its "Comedy Tonight"!!
