First of all, in the play, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare, Bottom is my favorite character because he is funny. Bottom is the kind of guy who like attention and would do almost anything to get it. I think this is very funny. He tries to take and play everyone's part in order to get more attention. Bottom is assign Pyramus for the play “Pyramus and Thisbe” and when Quince starts assigning Thisbe to Flute, Bottom says, “If I can hide my face, let me play Thisbe too. I’ll speak in an extraordinary little voice.”(Act I, Scene ii) which shows how he wanted to play other peoples parts. I find this very hilarious because people do stupid things to get attention and this is just what Bottom did. He wanted to play Thisbe, the Lion, and Pyramus all at the same time which would have been a big disaster if Quince let him do that.
