I’ve been watching 2 and a Half men for it’s entire run and I must say that I owe those actors some incredible kudos. I have acted before and usually in one of two venues. Either they were adolescent high school plays or they we ridiculous home made hand written plays / musicals by someone whom has never written anything like that before. He tried to have a plot, but had no idea how to create an interesting and in depth plot line. Still, Vin, god rest his soul, created some very interesting and funny skits and shows. It was very difficult to perform the lines seriously with funny timing. YET, in Two and a Half Men they do it every time!!! The main characters; Charlie and Alan, are established and successful actors. It must have been so difficult to perform those lines Sometimes with a straight face and sometimes with spite. Still, with an audience laughing it would have been impossible to perform those lines as done.
