On this episode of #PitchChris… is it easier for a dramatic actor to move to comedy or the other way around? Where is the best place to network in the entertainment business in Atlanta? And if you are a writer and you get your one shot to pitch your script how do you best prepare? Hi and welcome to episode 27 of #PitchChris where you guys ask me questions about the entertainment business and I’m gonna answer them. To ask me a question find me on social media @ChrisDeBlasio #PitchChris and I’ll be happy to answer all the questions you guys have. This first question comes from #BigAndrewKay. Let’s see what he’s got. Hey quick question for #PitchChris this is big Andrew K my thoughts from the bench. My thought today is as a young aspiring comedian you think it’s easier to take a dramatic actor and teach him comedy or take a comedic actor or comedian and teach them how to do drama? Here’s my answer, one man’s opinion, if you’re a talented actor you can accomplish pretty much anything. But for a majority of some of the actors out there I would say that it depends on a couple of things. One of the biggest things is public perception. If you look at an actor that has been taking serious roles for a really long time, it may be a little bit more challenging to break into comedy. Whereas if you have a comedic actor say like an Adam Sandler or a Jim Carrey we’ve actually seen this done before where they’ve actually worked in comedy for a long time and made that transition into more of the dramatic roles. So one man’s opinion.. but I would say you know moving from comedy to dramatic probably probably an easier transition.
