Laugh Please

People!! You have to laugh if you feel like it! If you go to a play and it's in a small house and if they play is funny and you feel like laughing, For the Love 'O Pete, DO IT! This is a purely selfish request on my part. I get so tired of doing comedies in small theatres where most people are afraid to let out a laugh. I don't blame them in a way. I am a loud laugher myself, and I can't tell you how many times I have been on the receiving end of a nasty "mal occhio" from a quiet Politically Correct seat neighbor. But do it for the actors, please. We are a very insecure bunch. We need to know, we must know that you love us. If we don't get it, well, who knows what we might do. It could be awful. So, for the love of God, man, laugh. If it's not funny, laugh anyway! You might get the actors charged up and then they will actually become funny just because you said "I love you" with a goofaw.
