Added Pregnant pause section
The "pregnant pause" section has been merged in from another article which now redirects here. Might need to be rewritten or something. --Xyzzyplugh 02:31, 17 September 2006 (UTC)
People with Asperger's having trouble with this
Should we add info about anyone with Asperger's Syndrome having trouble with this utter concept? Or should this be added to the Asperger's article? I'd say this needs to be added somewhere, in either article. Thank you. --Let Us Update Special:Ancientpages. 13:59, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
Agreed. Every sitcom, comedian and movie relies on comic timing. Specific examples are unnecessary. Also, it seems rather inappropriate to include one dirty joke (Margaret Cho's) on a page where that kind of language really wouldn't be expected. I'm no prude, but I just don't see the point of it.220.127.116.11 (talk) 00:48, 10 October 2009 (UTC)
Farce is indeed a kind of comedy, but it is not specifically based on timing any more than other genres. The basis of farce is exaggeration: dialogues and motion happen at excess speed. This is the mechanism that makes it funny, not the timing of it.

- Oppose. I'm not replicating those search results. "Comic timing" is far more common on Google Books (18.3k vs. (4.7k) and on Google News (36.7k vs. 14.4k).--Cúchullain t/c 21:20, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
