伯纳德·萨林斯(Bernard Sahlins)名言

Improvisation is not a presentational form, except in small doses, or as a game. It's a tool.

即兴创作不是一种表现形式,除非是小剂量的,或是作为一种游戏。这是个工具。

Actually being funny is mostly telling the truth about things.

其实搞笑主要是说事情的真相。

My theory is that everything an actor does, from the way he looks at his watch to the way he moves across the stage, is in the service of advancing a story, and in that sense, it's all writing. In that sense we, while acting, write.

我的理论是,一个演员所做的一切,从他看表的方式到他在舞台上移动的方式,都是为了推进一个故事,从这个意义上说,都是写作。从这个意义上说,我们在表演的同时,也在写作。

伯纳德·萨林斯

I think improvisation is a technique and a tool. I think that even the best of them fail most of the time, and in the end, the audience is not interested in how you got there but in what you're saying. The more clearly and concisely and artistically you say it, the more effective it is.

我认为即兴创作是一种技巧和工具。我认为即使是最好的也会失败,最后,观众对你是怎么做到的并不感兴趣,而是对你说的话感兴趣。你说得越清楚、简洁、艺术,效果就越好。

伯纳德·萨林斯

If you're talking down to the audience, no matter how brutish it is, they know it and they hate you for it.

如果你在跟观众说话,不管它有多残忍,他们都知道,他们为此恨你。

I'm a bug on acting, which distinguishes Second City from a lot of other revues. It comes from the character, the behavior, and not from the jokes. I don't think jokes are funny. Humor comes out of character and out of situations the character is in.

我对演技很感兴趣,这使《第二城市》有别于其他很多剧集。它来自性格,行为,而不是笑话。我觉得笑话不好笑。幽默源于角色和角色所处的环境。
