„I think comedy is the most difficult thing in the world, I really do.“

New York Times interview (1985)
Kontext: I think comedy is the most difficult thing in the world, I really do. One can always lament, you know — but to laugh in the face of life, that's very hard. And for me the great tragedian should also be a great comedian.
