Would you please tell me,what it means by this expression?
I wonder also what does it mean?!
Oh! It's hard for me to describe this action/expression in English,actually. All I can say is that the actors in the comedy shows often do it. Just like a moderator in a funny show " Are you smarter than a 5th graders?" on TV. He often acts this action/expression towards his audiences. Everyone knows this trick & like it very much .You can look at his face,like pretending there is nothing amusing at the time there really is . Hope this help you more.
PS maybe it means that his face shows no sign of anything if we don't look at his eyes that laugh. He only smiles but his eyes laugh. I'm not sure what this expression is called in English & whether it is associated with a word like "kidding face"

I have just had a thought, perhaps it's "dead pan" as in "a dead pan expression".
Bob maintains a straight face despite the weird and nutty people around him, which makes the situation that much more humorous.
Oh! Yes, that's it what I'm waiting for.Thank you very much. And how did you do that in bringing that marvellous show to describe this expression to me? It's very funny. You know, we ,Thai people like to do this kind of expression on Comedy
shows nearly all the time which make us to act some kind of a non-stop laughing later on.
