The artist debuted on Globo silly heart, Which is followed by? Battle of the sexes. but it was in Politically incorrectnext to Danilo Gentili, with which he was distinguished. His entire career is practically built on drama, but the pandemic has taken him to the other side: comedy. From crying to laughing, Claudia Campolina had to work hard during the pandemic, away from society, to continue working. Bringing humor to social networks was first of all a necessity.
The history of comedy, however, began much earlier. I was still a little girl, I found it mother a reason to laugh. Inspired by him, he became the “little clown” of the group, as Campolina himself says. “I think that a child imitates its mother, it’s a way of learning, at least it was for me.” From friends to teachers, there was no one who did not emphasize his ability make people laugh

Approaching such a heavy and difficult topic so lightly was a way for the actress to avoid machismo. “A person who won’t listen to me because he’s on the defensive is more receptive to listening to me and can recognize the problem.”
“Since I started working with humor, I haven’t stopped. But I have often heard that women do not know how to do comedy, that they were not born for it, as if there are specific tasks for each gender. There are many more men stand up comedy From Brazil and abroad,” Campolina comments.
The idea that women don’t know how to do humor never made her think she couldn’t make a career in that space. “Since my memory of the funny person was my mother, not my father, it didn’t cross my mind.” He even says that in order to stand out, women have to make more efforts than men. “Be it a politician, an administrator, a director or even an actress. It’s a problem for our entire society.”
In this context, it is okay to laugh at a character that is not good. “People often don’t understand that he’s a villain. But I think that one can wish that the fiction would not be, laughing at the absurd scenario,” according to the artist.
the future of Claudia Campolina
Campolina has a genuine desire for artists to keep people using their art. “The actor has this vanity, we need applause. But before being a place of vanity, it is a space of contact with the other. I want people to look, I want to see how people are moved,” he says.
In addition to the Internet, he intends to act in film, his great passion, and continue to develop characters and direct his own texts. “Of course, I want to work as an actress, get roles, but creating is also a pleasure. I also like being behind the scenes.”
A mission to help other women
The role helped many women who did not even imagine the problem they were facing. “I’ve had messages from people claiming they have get out of toxic relationships after viewing my content and realizing that there is problematic behavior.’
Many others found it an almost welcoming space. “Some said that those lines were normalized in their house. The boys’ mothers told her that the content is important to make them aware of their behavior and also to teach them how wrong it is.
“Comedy doesn’t seem to do any good, but it can actually bring these serious issues and make people think, who are often disarmed because, for example, it’s a funny video. It’s like deporting another person without him noticing that he is being displaced,” Campolina concludes.
