All You Need is Love

Ted Kennedy: Well the answer is love. You get the question. We have to understand that we are a community. We have to understand we are a nation. We have to understand we are a world. And we are all part of a greater concept than generally we have time to think through.

People are working too hard. They’re caring about their kids. They’re caring about their job. They’re caring about their parents. They’re caring about Boston Red Sox. They’re caring about other kinds of issues.

But we are a community, and we have to understand that we, in this sense, have responsibilities. And we have to keep those front and center in our minds and hope that there are people all over the world that are understanding that, and that are going to help us try and make this a better place for all.

What’s funny? How comedians translate humor.

When it comes to making others laugh, you have to help them observe an absurd fact of life with you.

Videos
  • When you're trying to write something funny, it has to be an idea that first strikes you, personally, as funny.
  • The reason for this is that, then, it's something you're genuinely amused by. When this is so, it's based on observation of an experience that others may relate to.
  • The next step, after this, is to try to translate it for others to understand. Sometimes you can't reword it perfectly for others to appreciate because the words themselves carry different notes of meaning to you. Nevertheless, the aim is to try to keep your audience's jargon, their palette of words, in mind.
