Dana Carvey

Pick someone currently performing in comedy (could be in standup, sketch, sitcom, or film) whose style of performance could be said to be influenced/similar to vaudeville, or silent film. Write a one to two-page essay describing what you see in their work and linking it directly to one of these three styles of early comedy. Be specific and use examples from both the performer’s work and from what we have discussed and seen in class or in your at-home viewing.
