I try not to get trapped in any one musical or visual style at all.
I don't play comedy as comedy. That would be the biggest trap. I think about the characters and their situations. Then you don't have to worry where the laugh is going to be. But comedy is harder than drama.

Brian and I got cast out of that show into Trapper John, M. D.
