They say that those who laugh, have the most beautiful perspective on life, and ‘they’ usually are not wrong. Some of the people we are quoting here have shielded some very painful experiences behind the facade of a hearty laugh. Not just that, at times they have used laughter to bring a smile to other less fortunate ones. These men and women have graced the celluloid and have done things that we can watch over and over, and laugh endlessly. These men and women of comedy were not afraid of being called jokers, and even if they weren’t taken too seriously, they were candid enough, when the time came to speak on their reflections on life. Here are some profound quotes, made by some of the funniest entertainers of all time.
