June has ended, and the play is decidedly less than 20,000 words long. I’m about 1/3 of the way through the third and final act, and the final product will not hit the word count. No big.
As this is my first salvo into comedy, I have found myself in an new situation: asking myself “is this funny?”. The answer is usually “if somebody funny said it…”. A new vertex is added to the normal author-piece-audience triangle, that being the actor. Weird.

How true. I suggest you use the resources at your disposal. Give the script to Peter Cumbo and have him read it to you aloud. If it isn’t funny coming from Peter Cumbo’s mouth…it ain’t ever gonna be.
Silly playwright, comedy is all about the proper choice of hats.
