Time is another comic that was inspired by various idioms or catchphrases which we clearly are fans of. I’ve talked about my love for miscommunication in comedy… but I also love taking things literally. Like Batista in Guardians of the Galaxy as Drax the Destroyer.
Another great example is from one of the Naked Gun movies (I don’t remember which one) but Leslie Nielsen rifles around in a desk drawer and says “Bingo.” Then he pulls out a bingo card. Priceless.
