    and discovery in my Comedy Improv class, I believe what he means is that it is easy to do an action that by itself alone is funny. However to truly be great, a comedian must be able to take a typical everyday situation and, through keen observation and insight, make it funny. More specifically, the action of slipping on a banana peel itself is funny, but watching Keaton simply play a game of cards or eat a meal is spectacularly funny.

    Comedy is far from scientific, but it is, at least, consistent. Many comedians follow the same routine, where they describe an ordinary event in a funny way, point out something about everyday life that most people do not notice, or simply modify the commonplace in order to draw their audience’s attention to what is missing. The first option, describing an ordinary event, is so common among comedians that it no longer makes a comedian stand out in her field. The last two options, on the other hand
