Joe Abeywickrama: The Man Who Made Us Laugh

Because it’s tough being the funny man, it’s tough getting people to laugh convincingly. If we are extrapolate Lionel Abel’s thesis, we can say that what is true for his conception of Western tragedy (as thriving on self-consciousness) is true of the general conception of comedy, in both theatre and cinema. The funny man can’t betray his ability to make us laugh without betraying himself, which is why comedy in general betrays the falsity of its own medium: through counterfeit, deception, moral ambiguity. It’s no cause for wonderment, then, that comedy in Sri Lanka is, if I may be politically-incorrect here, terribly self-defeating: the men and women who try to make us grin immediately yield to their own awareness of how absurd they are.
