Are all the great comedy characters inherently selfish?

Is that their defining characteristic.

Apart from maybe the really thick ones.

#12

You have to laugh at things going wrong for them I suppose, and that’s harder if they’re being nice and trying to raise money for kids to go to disneyland or something.

I’m happy to concur with this hypothesis.
