Laughter

Laughter

This is my favorite picture of me and Anton.

Laughter with Anton always began with a giggle, usually inspired by something seemingly commonplace (long before Seinfeld popularized that trick). Anton's chuckle was a spark so incendiary you couldn't fail to respond. Once he started you going, Anton poured it on with playacting, drawings, inspired and improvisational wit. He built you up to a crescendo of uncontrollable hilarity and many was the time when with tears in my eyes I had to beg him to stop, stop.
