QuoteMatthew Perry told me a lot of stories—none of which can be printed in Variety.Matty lived messy.Matty had huge feelings and was not afraid to make you a part of those feelings.A comedy sword-swallower using real swords. The swords hurt.Matty was a cartoon mascot for anxiety wrapped in the packaging of a matinee idol.Canadian tennis pro. Heartthrob with a racing heart. Playwright. Accidental superstar.Matty had a lot of pain. He wore it on his sleeve.Matty would lend you his jacket which smelled like cigarettes and still had the pain right there on the sleeve.Matty would lend you cigarettes.Matty joked when he was worried and he was worried more than you might think.The butt of Matthew Perry's best jokes was always Matthew Perry.Matty admitted when he had messed-up which was constantly.Matty was easy to forgive.The world that was in the palm of his hand was in a tug-of-war with the world on his shoulders.Matty was always trying to get better.Matty was ready to talk.Matty didn't want to be alone.Matty wanted to make you laugh even if swallowing the swords hurt.
Quote from: BritishHobo on November 08, 2023, 08:35:59 PMWhen Perry did SNL, Norm Macdonald was a bit riled up by the hype around him, and somebody in his circle referring to Chandler's sarcasm as "Matt-speak". I presume this is what led to the Sarcasm 101 sketch, which I often see come up online with people genuinely believing it's a deleted scene from Friends. Even though it's pretty rubbish.
Quote from: Gurke and Hare on November 08, 2023, 11:05:14 PMIs the premise of this sketch that Chandler's way OF speaking is sarcasm? Because it isn't. You're right, it is rubbish.
QuoteSarcasm is the caustic use of words, often in a humorous way, to mock someone or something. Sarcasm may employ ambivalence, although it is not necessarily ironic. Most noticeable in spoken word, sarcasm is mainly distinguished by the inflection with which it is spoken or, with an undercurrent of irony, by the extreme disproportion of the comment to the situation, and is largely context-dependent.EtymologyThe word comes from the Greek σαρκασμός (sarkasmós) which is taken from σαρκάζειν (sarkázein) meaning "to tear flesh, bite the lip in rage, sneer"
