Postscript: Comedy

So, my friend was wrong. My one-act is funny, dammit. I appreciate my friend's opinion, but I respectfully disagree. My one-act is funny. He doesn't know the show like I do. He judged it based on ten minutes. He saw ten minutes of downtime. It's a friggin Neil Simon comedy. It goes in hills and valleys. There's parts where they're running around all crazy and there's parts where they aren't. It's not farce: they're not going to be running around constantly for an entire act. I know the show. I understand the style. I understand the rhythm of the dialogue and action. I'm a damn good director. So there.
