The people in New York - their humor is on a level that goes, uh, very deep, you know?
I like dark humor. My favorite movie of all time is 'Harold and Maude.'
Every time I do a movie like 'Finding Neverland' or 'Chocolat' or 'Shakespeare' in Love,' we deal with the creative process, but there's humor and fun along the way. I always love that kind of movie.
I can't not put humor in a book.
I find that people find a way out of misery through humor and it's humor that's often unacceptable to people who are not in quite such a state of misery.
Picking my topics is sort of a process of elimination for me. Most things don't work for me. I like to cover science and unexpected things happening in labs. Also, theoretical research doesn't work for my style. I need scenes and interactions. Then, humor. I'm having the most fun when I can have fun with my work.
I think in life, the sense of humor and comedy always exists.
I love British humor. It's just so - surreal.
It's an amusing idea to some, this feminism thing - this audacious notion that women should be able to move through the world as freely, and enjoy the same inalienable rights and bodily autonomy, as men. At least, that's the impression given when feminism and feminists are all too often the targets of lazy humor.
We like to think the best of ourselves. We like to believe we always say and do the right things. We like to believe our humor is always politic. We like to believe we harbor no prejudices. At least, that's the impression we give when we are so quick to condemn those whose weaknesses and failures are subjected to the harsh light of the Internet.
I think hip-hop does a very good job of infusing comedy and humor and wit into music, a lot more than other genres.
I've never met a person who has more integrity than my husband. I respect that. There's his humor and intelligence, too, and he's really cute, all those things - but if you don't respect your partner, you'll get sick of him.
I don't think I would describe my sense of humor. Doesn't sound like the kind of thing I'd do.
Tommy Lee Jones
I admired Stephen Daldry very much; I think he's a brilliant director, and also, I feel close to him because he has a lot of theater behind him. He's also a man of great imagination and a lovely sense of humor.
Max von Sydow
Ingmar Bergman had a great sense of humor, and he had a very special, characteristic laugh that you always recognized - if he went to watch a theater show, 'Ah! He is here tonight.'
Max von Sydow
Men love it. They have a sense of humor, whereas a lot of women are threatened or just don't get it.
Lara Flynn Boyle
When I was young, my favorite picture book was 'Fletcher and Zenobia,' written by Edward Gorey and illustrated by Victoria Chess. It's long out of print now, but its mix of macabre humor and 1960s psychedelia made it a perfect children's book for the times.
You probably found 'How to Survive a Robot Uprising' in the humor section. Let's just hope that is where it belongs.
Daniel H. Wilson
Colombian humor is very black, very sarcastic.
Women's humor seems to be a little more supportive. It's just kind of trying to make the other one laugh through funny voices and kind of talking about other people. I respond to that. I feel less like I'm going to get beat up in a room full of women than I do in a room full of guys.
I don't think humor is forced upon my universe; it's a part of it.
With Ricky Gervais, it's all shades of wrong, it's my kind of humor.
Feature-length film comedy is harder to pull off than the episodic sitcom - it doesn't have the same factory machinery up and running, teams of writers putting familiar characters through permutations - but that doesn't explain the widening quality gap that makes movie humor look like a genetic defective.
Brits have a better sense of humor in most ways. It's darker, more cutting.
Conservative humor is frankly harder than liberal humor. You get points for just being liberal. You can get more points if you make fun of your own side sometimes.
John F. Kennedy
