Comic actors wearing makeup that takes half a day to apply has become a Hollywood tradition. Hiding behind those layers of latex can sometimes be a more liberating experience, releasing the actor’s inhibitions and bringing out his inner funny. It might mean dressing as a woman. It might mean dressing as an obese person, or the double whammy: an obese woman. Yes, more often than not, being funny while concealing yourself under pounds of makeup go hand-in-hand. Rumor has it that Artie Lange might actually be a 120 lb. African-American woman from Denver.
