35. Corpsing

is rarely something that professionals do organically. It is much more frequently done on purpose to make people feel that you are in on the joke with them.

It can be used to great effect in certain venues. (In my area of the world we call it 'Ren Faire preciousness') However, I've done shows with people who 'broke' at the same bit every night.
It's not the sign of a good performer, it's the sign of a jack-ass who no one wants to work with because he pulls focus.

Fallon has built a career on imitating others & laughing at his own sketches. Not a surprise he cozied up to a self-aggrandizing, hyperbolic douche. Same cloth, different pattern.
