Answers with Dan Nainan?

What advice would you offer to other creative people who feel restless and frustrated with their desk jobs?

Many people I talk to have what they consider to be a boring job, but they also have an artistic passion of some kind, whether it's singing, comedy, making movies, dance, entrepreneurship, or whatever. At the same time, they'll tell me that they want to pursue their true passion, but they don't have time to do so. ;I would have to disagree. The average American watches over 32 hours of television a week. Also, on Friday night, there's tremendous peer pressure to go out and party and drink, because that's what everyone else is doing. Then they are hung over on Saturday, and not really able to do anything worthwhile, then they rinse and repeat Saturday night and then they are hung over on Sunday, and barely struggle in to work Monday morning. If they could cut out the television, the partying and the drinking, well, I've just found them 60 hours a week! (32 hours of television, 12 hours of partying and drinking from 9 PM to 3 AM on Friday and Saturday, 16 hours on Saturday and Sunday hung over doing nothing.) Instead of numbing their minds with alcohol, and instead of watching television (and passively watching others doing what they love for a living and making big money doing it), why not use that time to write jokes, compose music, learn filmmaking or start a business?

Answers with Greg Walloch?

What has been your favorite personal performance and why?

There've been so many that it's hard to pick a favorite. I remember the behind the scenes stuff more.

When I was performing with USA Network's Characters Unite storytelling tour, I was sitting in the rehearsal with Octavia Spencer and Dustin Lance Black...it was a week before the Academy Awards. USA Network had given us all talking point sheets with our names and information about each of us on them. Octavia was looking at her name, "Octavia Spencer: Academy Award nominee for The Help." Welling up she said, "Forgive me. I still get so emotional, I can't believe it...it was not that long ago that I was playing parts like 'Girl in Elevator.' Dustin Lance Black took her hand and said, "That can never be taken away from you, Academy Award nominee, that is forever no matter what." It was a lovely moment. A week later she won the Academy Award. "Academy Award nominee" was taken away, because now she is Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer!

That was a pretty special show to be a part of...Nathan Lane hosted the evening. That was a hallmark night that left an indelible mark for me. I was honored to be a part of it. More information on USA Network's Characters Unite storytelling tour here.

What is screwball comedy?

AnswerDumb and Dumber is not at all a screwball comedy. A screwball comedy is a genre of comedy that had originated in Hollywood in the 1930's. It is very rare to see a modern screwball comedy as many writers tend to write most comedies in the slapstick format. It is often emphasized by quick funny dialogue and situations that are presented at breakneck speed. It usually has a male and female lead who are more often than not at odds at each other. Sometimes it borders on commentary on class and position of the characters (It Happened One Night.) Sometimes there is some cross-dressing involved (Some Like It Hot) which often furthers misunderstandings. It is often associated with slapstick, romantic comedy, and situation comedy.

SOMETHING SO FUNNY THAT IT IS STUPID. LIKE DUMB AND DUMBER

- I'm sorry, but I believe that Dumb and Dumber is considered slapstick. Slapstick is another genre of comedy where as the previous reviewer has said - "it's so funny, it is stupid." The term slapstick derives from the term batacchio or slapstick in English which makes a violent sound but does little if any harm to the person who is struck by it. Most comedies of that genre tend to border on ridiculous with exaggerated violence and situations that defy common sense. Elements that make a film slapstick: 1) pain without real consequence, 2) an unrealistic situation becomes impossible, 3) impossible situations, 4) zooming to confuse the audience, and 5) use of stunts that make no physical sense. This is what Dumb and Dumber or any Jim Carrey movie can be defined as.

Lyrics for chamatkar-balatkar speech in 3 idiots?

Adarniya sabhapati mahodaya, atithi vishesh shikshan mantri shri R D tripati ji, maanyaniya shikshagan aur mere piyaaare sahpatiyo

Aaj agar I.C.E aasmaan ki bulaaandiyo ko chhu raahaa hai to uska shreya sirrf ekinsaan ko jaataahai - Shri Veeru Sahastrabuddhe

Give him a big hand. He is a great guy really.

Peechle buttis saal se inhone nirantar is college mein balatkar pe balatkar kiye. Umeed hai aagey bee karte rahege. Hamein to aashcharya hota hai ki ek insaan apne jeevan kaal mein itni balatkar kaisi kar sakta hai. Inhone kadi tapaasya se apne aapko is kaabil bunaya hai. Waqt ka sahi upyog ghante ka purna istemaal koi inse seeke. Seeke inse seeke. Aaj hum sab chaatra yaha hai, kal desh videsh mein fail jayenge. Waadaa hai aapse jis desh mein honge waha balatkar karenge, I.C.E ka naam roshan karenge. Dika denge sabko jo balatkar Karne ki kshamtaa yaha ke chaatro mein hai wo sansaar ke kisi chaatro mein nahiii. No other chaatra. No other chaatra.

Adarniya mantraji! Namashkar aapne is sansthaan ko wo chees di jiski hamein sakht zaroorat thi. "Sstunn"! Stunn hota sabi ke paas hai. Sab chupa ke rakte hai, detaa koi nai. Aapne apna stun is balatkari purush ke haat mein diya hai, ab dekiye yeh kaisa iska upyog karta hai

Utthamum dadhdadaath paadam - Madhyam paadam thuchuk chuk - Ghanisthah thud thudi paadam - Surr surri praan gatakam.
