Paper Thin Disguise: Stand-Up Comedy
  • The late Linda Smith had a routine complaining about the use of this trope in opera: 'Someone puts on a big hat and suddenly no-one can recognize them, even people who they've been talking to for half an hour. If that worked in real life, the witness protection program would consist of a selection of headgear.'
