Retarded: کند ذهن
Impatient: نا شکیبا
Jackie: we're talking about things that make us laugh. Richard, childhood.
Jackie: You always associate that with clowns.
Richard: Clowns and going to the circus, yes.
Jackie: Mmm. When you were a child then, did clowns make you laugh?
Jackie: Oh, really?
Richard: I never liked clowns. I don't know why. I didn't go to the circus, didn't like clowns, sorry.
Jackie: I didn't really like clowns either. They didn't make me laugh.
Richard: No. When they were falling over and hurting themselves, I didn't really like that very much.
Jackie: No, it's a lot of... of what they call slapstick humour wasn't it, you know, people having pu... custard pies thrown at them and things.
Richard: Yes, I yes, like practical jokes. I don't like practical jokes either. There's always a... a butt of the joke and I think that's a little bit unkind.
Jackie: However, having said that, I used to love, watching on telly, the old black and white, silent movies.
Richard: OH, Charlie Chaplin.
Jackie: Yeah, my favourite was Buster Keaton. And they were always doing kind of... lots of funny, silly things. I laughed and laughed at that, I thought they were wonderful.
Richard: Very clever as well, a lot of the things they did.
Jackie: Yes, maybe clever, whereas clowns aren't clever, they're just silly.
Richard: Stupid [both laugh]. We may be different from most people, however.
Jackie: What about films, Richard? Do you have any films that or... make you laugh out loud?
Richard: I know someone you don't like, I quite like, is Woody Allen. And I do remember, many years ago, watching a film with my mother.
Jackie: Oh, yes.
Richard: I can't remember the name of the film but we were rolling around laughing.
Jackie: Oh, really?
Richard: OH, yes. The tears were running down our cheeks.
Jackie: Your mum as well?
Richard: Yes, it was very strange, it was just one of those moments where we were both in the right mood I think and it was hilarious. [Jackie: Right] What about you, do you have any favourite funny movies?
Jackie: Um... well, it's interesting. There are some films that I've seen that I thought were funny at the time but when I... when I see them again I don't think they're so funny.
Richard: Yes, that's very title.
Jackie: However, there are some films I've seen many times and I still laugh all the way through them. And I'm a great Eddie Murphy fan. And I have to confess that both Trading Places and Coming to America, they make me laugh all the way through the film and if they were on the telly at the moment, I'd be happy to go and watch them.
Richard: Yes, well with him it's the facial expressions, isn't it? He's got a very funny face.
Jackie: Funny face, it's a funny story and I think they're quite clever as well. Talking about the telly, Richard, something that's very, very popular at the moment on British TV is standup.
Richard: Mmm standup comedians on a stage, really just telling stories and jokes and things.
Jackie: Jokes, yeah [unclear]...
Richard: Sometimes you're sitting at home on the sofa and you can have a giggle maybe urn... or I think that's funny but they're always filmed in front of a live audience, aren't they?
Jackie: Well, there's a reason for that, isn't there?
Richard: Because the laughter is infectious.
Richard: Once a couple of people start rolling around laughing, big belly laughs, everybody joins in.
Jackie: And once you have an atmosphere of laughter, I suppose...
Richard: ...it encourages everybody else.
Jackie: Cos not many people watch something on the telly and laugh aloud on their own, do they?
Jackie: That's quite unusual. What about you the listeners? Do you have a favourite film that makes you laugh?
Richard: Or a favourite comedian? We'd love to hear from you.
