What is funny? So the deeper question that this story around smuggling, theft of ideas and old debt tries to clarify. Jerry Lewis in the role of George Fawkes, the star comedian as an overpowering father figure, has the precise answer: “Some people are funny, some people tell funny.” Where ones tell a good joke skillfully, others have funny bones and no other choice than to pay with their body and her very unleashed being for the laughter of the audience. Because, as a further intuition, there is nothing funny, that would not also be terrible.
