    Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! A situation comedy, usually referred to as a sitcom, is a genre of comedy that usually consists of recurring characters in a common environment such as a home or workplace and can include laugh tracks or studio audiences. Such programs originated in radio. Today, sitcoms are found almost exclusively on television as one of its dominant narrative forms. As opposed to stand up comedy, a situation comedy has a storyline and ongoing characters in, essentially, a comedic drama. The situation is usually that of a family, workplace, or a group of friends. The term situation comedy or sitcom was adopted to distinguish them from other comedy formats such as sketch comedy, or stand-up comedy. Often these other formats were presented within a variety format mixed with musical performances, as in vaudeville.

    In comedy, happy endings resolve real-world conflicts. These conflicts, in turn, leave their mark on the texts in the form of gaps in plot and inconsistencies of characterization. Greek Comedy and Ideology analyzes how the structure of ancient Greek comedy betrays and responds to cultural tensions in the society of the classical city-state. It explores the utopian vision of Aristophanes' comedies—for example, an all-powerful city inhabited by birds, or a world of limitless wealth presided over by the god of wealth himself—as interventions in the political issues of his time. David Konstan goes on to examine the more private world of Menandrean comedy (including two adaptations of Menander by the Roman playwright Terence), in which problems of social status, citizenship, and gender are negotiated by means of elaborately contrived plots. In conclusion, Konstan looks at an imitation of ancient comedy by Moliére, and the way in which the ideology of emerging capitalism transforms the premises of the classical genre.

    High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Radio comedy, or comedic radio programming, is a radio broadcast that may involve sitcom elements, sketches, and many other forms of comedy found on other media. It may also include more surreal or fantastic elements, as these can be conveyed on a small budget with just a few sound effects or some simple dialogue. Because of this, it is often less restrictive and can allow for more imaginative and inventive comedy. Although traditional comedy was once a significant part of American broadcast radio programming, it is now mainly found in the archives of Old Time Radio enthusiasts and in Internet streaming of comedy recordings. The majority of mainstream radio comedy now consists of personality-driven shows hosted by talk-radio hosts such as Howard Stern or comedic duos such as Armstrong & Getty and Bob & Tom. Exceptions to this are WSRN's "Audience of Two", Garrison Keillor's work on Minnesota Public Radio: "A Prairie Home Companion" and "Comedy College", and NPR's Car Talk, a comedy show thinly disguised as car advice, and Wait Wait. Don't Tell Me.

Chapters: Rock 'n' Rant, Komedia, Jongleurs, the Glee Club, the Comedy Store, the Free Beer Show, Laughing Cows Comedy, Outside the Box Comedy Club, Xs Malarkey, East Dulwich Comedy. Excerpt: Rock 'N' Rant is a non-profit organisation located in the Medway Towns to promote independent British musicians and comedians who may otherwise find it hard to secure gigs. At this time, the organisation has been running for two years and has promoted many acts both local and not-so-local. Rock 'N' Rant was founded in August 2004 by Brad Harmer, Ronnie Warner and Graham Burr to help promote local bands and comedians in the Medway club-circuit. Harmer and Burr, friends since Grammar School, were both competent stand-up comedians who felt stifled by the local scene while Warner was a multi-talented musician. The initial seeds were sown as they worked together in a company called Xchanging, processing insurance policies. This historic discussion led to a plan for a single gig, named "Rock n' Rant" and punctuated in the style of Guns N' Roses. The first gig was performed on Friday, the 6th August 2004 in the basement of The Command House in Chatham. Brad Harmer headlined the gig, with support from Heavy metal band Ionika and comedy-rock band The One Ronnie. and Some Other Bloke. The P.A. System was borrowed from Brad

    English Stage Comedy 1490-1900 is a unique and beautifully written study of the comedy of the English stage from the Tudor period to the late twentieth century. It shows how this remarkably enduring genre has dealt with the tensions of social life, using itsconventions as tools for social inquiry. Through an examination of comedy, Alexander Leggatt demonstrates that an approach through genre, neglected in recent criticism, can have much to say about our current concerns with the relations between literature and society. This book surveys five centuries of classic comic drama, focusing on major playwrights such as Shakespeare, Jonson, Etherege, Wycherley, Congreve, Vanburgh, Goldsmith, Sheridan, Wilde, Shaw, Coward, Orton, and Ayckbourn.

    Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Ancient Greek comedy was one of three principal dramatic forms in the theatre of classical Greece (the others being tragedy and the satyr play). Athenian comedy is conventionally divided into three periods, Old Comedy, Middle Comedy, and New Comedy. Old Comedy survives today largely in the form of the eleven surviving plays of Aristophanes, while Middle Comedy is largely lost, i.e. preserved only in relatively short fragments in authors such as Athenaeus of Naucratis. New Comedy is known primarily from the substantial papyrus fragments of Menander. The philosopher Aristotle wrote in his Poetics (c. 335 BC) that comedy is a representation of laughable people and involves some kind of blunder or ugliness which does not cause pain or disaster. C.A. Trypanis wrote that comedy is the last of the great species of poetry Greece gave to the world.

    Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Massenmedien allgemein, Note: 2,0, Universität Mannheim, Veranstaltung: Humor in den Medien, 21 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Radio-Comedy gibt es, seit es das Radio gibt. Comedy im Radio ist nicht nur sehr erfolgreich, sondern auch äußerst wichtig für die Hörerbindung. Eine Studie der hr-Medienforschung von 2001 ergab, dass der Traumsender unbedingt Humor haben und den Hörer zum Lachen bringen müsse. Und nicht nur das: 74% der Radiohörer wünschen sich mehr Humor. So kommt Andreas Liebold vom Frühstyxradio zu dem Fazit: „Comedy ist die wichtigste Hörfunk-Innovation der Neunzigerjahre."Folgende Arbeit konzentriert sich auf Comedy im Radio. Im ersten Teil werden zunächst die Begriffe Comedy und Humor sowie die unterschiedlichen Humortheorien erläutert. Anschließend werden die Merkmale der Radio-Comedy und deren Formen sowie Formate erklärt. Der zweite Teil widmet sich dann der Praxis. Ziel ist es, die theoretisch abgehandelten Merkmale der Comedy anhand eines Beispiels zu analysieren.

    Comedy Matters traces the long tradition of the expansive comic embrace of cultural difference and diversity that manages to survive even in some of mankind's darkest moments. Demastes argues that comedy has a hard-nosed, pragmatic dimension that can be mobilized against belligerent cultural forces. Drawing from the works of Shakespeare, Stoppard, and a number of other comic masters, Comedy Matters demonstrates how comedy continues to work against cultural regimentation by striving to re-calibrate our decision-making processes and challenging the stultifying rigidity of human economy in the broadest sense of the term.

    Detailing both their public and private lives-as well as their many and varied performances-Queens of Comedy examines the impact these women have had on the predominantly male-oriented world of comedy. Performers like Carol Burnett, Joan Rivers, and their more recent counterparts, comediennes Brett Butler and Roseanne, have helped to shift women's roles in comedy from object to subject. This book maps out this shift, providing an often brutally honest picture of women's lives in both the spotlight of comedy and this modern world.Through candid personal interviews with Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett, and other visionary performers, Queens of Comedy explores how comediennes have redefined the roles of women in not only the entertainment business, but society as a whole.

    High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Comedy-drama, also known as dramedy or seriocomedy, is a genre of television, theatre, and film in which there is an equal or nearly equal balance of humor and serious content. Traditional western theatre, beginning with the ancient Greeks, was divided into comedy and tragedy. A tragedy typically ended with the death or destruction of a fictional or historical hero, whereas a comedy focused on the lives of middle to lower class characters and ended with their success. The term "drama" was used to describe all the action of a play. Beginning in the 19th century, authors such as Anton Chekhov, George Bernard Shaw and Henrik Ibsen blurred the line between comedy and drama.
