English term or phrase:Playing out extreme or unusual characters
***Playing out extreme or unusual characters*** in the straightest of ways is what makes deadpan serious so funny, says Taika. "It is the antidote to slapstick.When the atmosphere is tense and uncomfortable that's when we feel the need to laugh most. The sort of humour I prefer and write, comes from finding the lighter side of tragic."
