Everything Is Funny: Harold Pinter


Everything is funny; the greatest earnestness is funny; even tragedy is funny. And I think what I try and do in my plays is to get this recognizable reality of the absurdity of what we do and how we behave and how we speak.

Harold Pinter 1930-2008

quoted in The Theatre of the Absurd, by Martin Esslin 1918-2002
