Planet Earth Comedy Show

If you wish to appear on the Planet Earth Comedy Show over the coming months, how will you know how to look, sound and smell the part?


Do you think you look, sound, smell and think suitably for the part of a successful performer of comedy?

How much research have you done for a role on the show?

How well rehearsed will you be?










Auditions for the Planet Earth Comedy Show have regularly been taking place here over many months now. 

Rehearsals have been taking place in the natural common room, as expected.

They have also been taking place in the music room and the parlour and out in the gardens.










What is your usual approach to Mad March in this part of the world?

What is your usual approach to Mad May in any part of the world?

What is your usual approach to a Mad November?










As any true comedian already knows, auditions and rehearsals are serious activities, as is the pursuit of writing comedy.

What are your own comic enterprises meant to achieve?













How do you usually express satire, and why?

How do you usually express wit, and why?

When is your comedy somewhat light and when is it somewhat dark?

When is your comedy surreal?












When is your comedy an expression of exaggeration?

When is your comedy an expression of understatement?













Tonight, you may or may not be an expected or unexpected guest on the Planet Earth Comedy Show.

Comedy always involves an element of surprise.



 






Will you expect the Spanish Inquisition?

Will you expect to do impersonations of already ridiculous world leaders?













How should reason, wisdom and nature be represented in comedy?

If you do not usually think of comedy and planet Earth in the same context, why is that?

Are you mad?

Are you too serious?












Do you take a slapstick approach to conservation?

Is your fossil fuel use a farce?

What sort of tea parties do you prefer?

How did you arrive here?










If you have never been able to afford much, what makes you laugh?

What stuns you into silence?

And what makes you dream or scream?
