Comedy = Poetry and Lies

Maggie Smith. 

I admit to being a Maggie Smith fan for her current character in Downtown Abbey – her double takes, her tsking, her rolling of the eyes.  I love it.  It communicates all the impatience and intolerance of one’s elders, but done with a childlike emotional stance.  I especially love the Downtown Abbey paper doll set that is now available as well.

 But I do like what Chris Bliss has to say abou the “translation” of comedy.  It reminded me of Maggie Smith and the cut out paper dolls of Downton Abby.
