This notion is common in numerous plays and is known as dramatic irony. Dramatic irony creates an environment where the audience knows much more than the characters. Othello’s audience has a distorted view of the play as a whole due to secrets Iago shares solely with them.
His insolence and irresponsible bawdiness make him a brilliantly effective figure on stage.

During most of the Act the audience finds itself constantly trying to find a motive for Iago’s actions but finds none that can justify what he is about to do.
