How can you teach physical comedy without showing them Jim Carrey?
He's a master, and this worksheet really breaks it down for students to see.
The handout goes along with the "Physical Comedy" handout in my shop, but can be done on its own as well.
It looks at the elements of physical comedy (comedy using just the body) in the movie.
There's a second page with a helpful chart where they look at his facial expression and body expression, and how that brings comedic elements.
