笑場

如果是一般口語,笑場、唸錯台詞等等演員在演戲時所發生的突槌狀況,都可以歸類在bloopers之內。如果是戲劇或劇場專業用詞,「笑場」在英國劇場界有個專門說法叫corpsing,用來指演員在演戲的時候突然笑出來或導致別人笑出來。

根據英國廣播公司(BBC)報導,這詞起源為一名在舞台上飾演屍體的演員,這名演員不知為何常會笑場(瑛姑註:演屍體還常笑場,難怪會「流傳千古」)。請看維基百科http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corpsing):

Corpsing is a British theatrical slang term used to describe when an actor breaks character during a scene by laughing or by causing another cast member to laugh.[1]Though the origin of the term is unknown, the term might refer to anactor “murdering" the scene. It could also be referring to actorstrying to get attention when they are supposed to be lying dead onstage (this is in concurrence with the stereotype of the vain actor).In American comedy “corpsing" is more commonly known as “breaking face."

BBC TV programme on 18 November 2006 stated an opinion that the term “corpsing" originated when a living actor played a corpse on stage; there was sometimes a tendency to try to make that actor laugh.

Corpsing定義在Urban Dictionary也有,並引述凱特布蘭琪為例子
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=corpsing):

corpsing

From the theater: to laugh uncontrollably and not be able to stop. (Source: Cate Blanchette on the 12/04/06 Tonight Show).

再請參考這篇實例,講的是DVD通常會附上幕後花絮(或稱漏網鏡頭),包括演員唸錯台詞、摔跤、動物出狀況、道具突然倒塌以及笑場等等狀況http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HilariousOuttakes):

Usually run over the credits of some Sit Com shows, but also a standard feature of the Clip Show, and sometimes included as extra material on DVDs.They can involve:

  • An actor flubbing a line.
  • Someone tripping on the set.
  • Part of the set collapsing.
  • Funny animal stuff.
  • Spontaneous laughing, known as “corpsing".

回到最前面所講的blooper(s),指的則是演員突然發生的尷尬狀況,例如笑場、唸錯台詞等都包括在內,並不特定只指笑場,參考http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-blooper.htm,版主也可以bloopers關鍵字自行搜詢勞勃狄尼洛等演技派明星笑場的片段。

如果是指平常的人突然笑出來,如同「噗哇哈哈哈哈….」,並非特定說演員在拍片或演戲時的狀況,則用Burst Out Laughing即可,網路上常常流行縮寫為BOL。
