Among the hallmarks of Gene Wilder’s spectacular career was his mastery of the comedic pause.

As director Edgar Wright tweeted after Wilder’s death, the beloved Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory star was “funny doing something & funny doing nothing.”

To celebrate his skill, Rishi Kaneira compiled seven minutes of Wilder’s best pauses from Young Frankenstein to Blazing Saddles, which elicit just as many laughs as his punchlines — if not more.
