Laughter opens the heart
I agree fully with Charles Brousse … Ron Campbell is truly GREAT [‘Comic effect,’ August 19]. My wife and I saw the performance earlier this month. We love to go on Friday night to hear the pre-show talk which was also delightful. Campbell came by our seats during the performance as well, making short work of my wife’s red wine. His timing, words and facial expressions were perfect as he swooped in and then out in an instant.
I must add one other thing. As a Poet Entertainer I feel a kind of kindred spirit with Campbell. (And envy too!) I believe that the corniest shtick can be perfectly wed to the most sincere and serious matters in this life. How else can we truly experience them? After all, laughter opens the heart and gets it ready to feel more deeply!
With a grateful bow,
