Bring on The Funny!!!

MAKE 'EM LAUGH !
So what is funny? Comedy is not a science. There are no rules and regulations to follow. It is totally subjective. What is funny to one person can make another wince or squirm.

Let's Talk About It!

 It's not all about what you DO, it's also about what you say! Check out Ron Greenfield's latest post,  Joining The Conversation over at Aspects of Entertainment: "Social, in the way we share, whatever it is, with an immediacy and sometimes urgency which brings me to the heart of the matter. How do you want to join the conversation? And, by conversation I don’t necessarily mean talking as in yak! yak! yak! I mean it in how we go about expressing ourselves, to whom and with whom." - Read more at:

Get your Diversity on!

 In today's world, what does it take to be a star in Hollywood?  It's all about diversity, baby!  (And not the kind you think. :) )

HAVE MOVIE STARS BECOME AN ENDANGERED SPECIES?
The rules of the game have changed but the game is still in play. There will always be stars. It’s just human nature because people will always have their favorites. I don’t believe that will ever change. However, Peter Bart intimates in the article and I do agree with him that the up and coming actors, to sustain any kind of longevity in their careers, will be dependent on the diversity of the roles they take on. - See more at: http://www.aspectsofentertainment.com/movie-stars-become-endangered-species/#sthash.bH9Gzc9o.dpuf
