    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.

    Romantic comedy is an enduringly popular genre which has maintained its appeal by constantly evolving, from the screwball comedy to the recent emergence of the bromance. Romantic Comedy examines the history of the genre, considering the social and cultural context for key developments in new genre cycles. It studies the key themes and issues at work within romantic comedy films, focusing in particular on the representation of gender and how the genre acts as a barometer for gender politics in the course of the twentieth century. Claire Mortimer provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of the genre, tracing its development, enduring appeal, stars and the nature of its comedy. Mortimer discusses both British and Hollywood classic and contemporary romantic comedies, ranging from canonical films to more recent examples which have taken the genre in new directions. In-depth case studies span a wide variety of films, including: It Happened One NightBringing Up BabyAnnie HallFour Weddings and a FuneralBridget Jones's DiaryWimbledonKnocked UpSex and the CityThis book is the perfect introduction to the romantic comedy genre and will be particularly useful for all those investigating this area within film, media or women's studies.

    Hilarious stuff here, friends and neighbors. And the laughs aren't just aimed at folks who think Caddyshack is where ma and pa park the car. 'Cause the little secret behind the #1 comedy concert of the past two years is that its topics - marriage, kids, traveling - are so universal. And so wackily warped when seen through the perspective of standout stand-ups.This concert movie captures the fellas on stage as well as during off hours. So hunker down and catch each of the comics in a solo bit. Then see them in a kind of 4-man comedy jam. Jeff Foxworthy's redneck , Bill Engvall's Here's Your Sign , Ron White's bad-boy tales, Larry the Cable Guy's bumpkin yarns - they're all here. And all gall-durn funny!

    Having appeared in more than 200 films and widely considered to be one of cinema's most respected comic geniuses, Harold Lloyd was one of Hollywood's first true movie stars. With a career that spanned more than 34 years, Harold Lloyd essentially created the feature-length film. Best known for his comedy movies including The Freshman, Speedy and Safety Last! -- which features one of Hollywood's most iconic images of Harold Lloyd hanging from the hands of a giant clock -- the influence of his physical comedy is evident in the performances of many of today's leading actors. His trademark combination of physical skill, well-developed characters and keen comic timing have influenced such acclaimed talents as Lucille Ball, Jim Carrey, Dustin Hoffman and Johnny Depp.

    The Three Stooges were the undisputed kings of physical comedy. Their slapstick antics are just as fresh today as they were fifty, sixty, even seventy years ago when they began making short comedies for MGM and Columbia Studios.

After Shemp came Joe Besser in 1955 and finally, burlesque comedian Joe De Rita, who costarred with Larry and Moe in their later, full-length features.In this extraordinary collection, you'll get the very best of the Three Stooges, including classic shorts with Larry, Moe, and Curly; comedies with Larry, Moe and Shemp; a rare, live episode of Camel Comedy Caravan from 1950 guest-starring Larry, Moe and Shemp; cartoons from the Stooges' 1965 animated series; plus rare comedy shorts starring individual Stooges - and more! No self-respecting Three Stooges fan should be without this fabulous collection!

    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.

    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.

    A tremendous collection of some of the funniest movies ever produced! Now a whole new generation are able to rediscover the appeal of these two-reel silent masterpieces. These delightful comedies date as far back as 1916 and have been unseen in decades. These little comedic gems have been lovingly restored and are offered on DVD for the very first time!Injun Trouble (1926): Raymond Griffith (January 23, 1895 - November 25, 1957) was one of the great silent movie comedians. The best known of his films today is Hands Up!, a 1926 Civil War comedy feature directed by Clarence G. Badger, and co-starring Mack Swain, which was entered into the National Film Registry in 2005. This is a very rare two-reel version of that film.Please Excuse Me (1926): This 1926 entry was the third episode of the Excuse Maker two reel comedy series featuring Charles King and Constance Darling. In films since childhood, Charles King played a variety of roles in silent films but it was as a western villain in the 1930s and 1940s that King would achieve his greatest fame.The Tin Hoss (1925): This 1925 film was produced as a Hey Fellas! comedy, which was basically a copy of Hal Roach's Our Gang series. The storyline involves a home-made railway running on lines made from a stolen fence and driven by a Joe Cobb imitator.Daily Dozens (1926): The Joybell Players , consisting of Jack Cooper, Ethelyn Gibson, and Jack Richardson, star in this very funny comedy from writer/director Robert Tansey.
