I don’t think generally speaking people become writers because they were the really good really cool attractive kid in class. I’ll be honest. This is our revenge for people who were much better looking and more popular than us. I was a bit like that I suppose.
I can’t see what’s wrong about assuming intelligence in your audience and what’s bad news about being rewarded for assuming that.
People don’t really have a relationship with great writing or great production or great art direction or great direction. They just sort of admire it.
When writing comedy you have to have the confidence to believe that there is only one type of relationship in the world and we are all having it that all men behave in the same way and so do all women.
