They even act a little nuts to make us laugh
Ace Ventura

Mrs. Doubtfire
Movies make us laugh because they surprise us, entertain us, and they make us laugh
BUT
we don't know the actors
We like to watch people we know:

hurt
themselves
embarrass
themselves
make
mistakes
It's impromptu!!

Remember: not expected!!
Home Videos do everything a funny movie does
AND
they are about us!
MOVIES V. HOME VIDEOS
America's Funniest Home Videos!!!!!
People send in videos of their
family and friends, and strangers
decide who had the best video.
The winner wins money!
Compilations take the funniest parts
of a home video, and combine them
with other funny clips
And, why are we so obsessed with animals?
Because!!!
They act like humans
They make silly mistakes
and they're really cute
Remember: Dubbing is when you put a voice over the original voice.
Now a litte comedy. Shall we?
