29 Easter Eggs And Behind-The-Scenes Trivia Tidbits About Iconic Comedies
They say that dying is easy but comedy is hard. Frankly, that's one of the truest statements of all time. Getting laughs can be one of the hardest things a performer can attempt to do. Just ask any Cracked writer. Sometimes there are moments in which the sacrifice a comedic actor or filmmaker makes to get a guffaw from an audience can be too great, too big, or too nuts.
Sure, method actors go through psychological hell in order to get a character right for a role, but they probably didn't almost lose a nipple like Steve Carell. Or the bludgeoning poor Jon Heder suffered through while shooting Napoleon Dynamite. Then again, many actors, both serious and comedic, still have to deal with the studio think they're too “fat.”
In any case, there are several behind-the-scenes factoids and hidden Easter eggs within several great film and TV comedies that you probably didn't know or see. Take a gander and show some appreciation toward the craft.
