1536. And keep in mind that the skits Otis was about to write for his comedian employees he would never get credit for. All of the credit will be given to the clowns he was assisting. And what about his acting abilities? What about his sense of timing and his ability to know when is the right moment to pause, draw back and roll his eyes up to the heavens? What about his knowing how long to hold the pose, before a contrary movement a split second later?
1537. No! Otis will not be given credit even for his acting abilities, because all of the praise and all of the adulation will go to the three comedians. It will be assumed that Otis is insensibly doing what he was trained to do. That Otis knows exactly what he is doing does not enter into the minds of the audience or the other actors. But it doesn't matter. Otis feels no resentment if others get the credit. A king is a king, no matter what the clothing.
