The term comedy can refer to an entire work or simply only parts. Comedy, which can range from romantic (the guy gets the girl and they live happily ever after) to satiric, which is when “human weakness or folly is ridiculed from a vantage point of supposedly enlightened superiority” (Kennedy and Gioia 882).

If someone says something that offends anyone, regardless of its factuality or veracity, they will be questioned and challenged. Because of this borderline-censorship, we must still have a way to engage audiences and get our point across. Humor provides this. Humorists are able to dive into topics that can be very polarizing and, with the way they communicate, can bring people together while expressing certain opinions.
There is a list of people in this world who are generally seen as vital to society. Doctors, teachers, lawmakers, scientists, and many more make this unspoken list. Doctors are needed to save people, teachers educate the next generation, and lawmakers make necessary decisions for the public. But for most, one kind of person would not make it on that list, they wouldn 't even be considered for it-humorists. TV shows, movies, comic strips, and other forms of satire are seen as entertainment; thus, they are not essential.
Ha. I love watching documentaries. You can learn so much information and see a different perspective for a lot of different topics. I 'm not so much into reading unless it 's magazines and technical reports. I just can 't get into reading 20 chapters of a book in my free time.
The big question that majority of the people who watch comedy is, “How can a person write comedy about serious issues without making light of the serious issue?” The answer is quite simple, because serious theme contrasted with comedy adds richness to the piece because it allows the audience to have a well-needed break from horror or grief that comes about because of the seriousness of the main theme.(I would clear this up a little, sounds confusing) While comedians will make everybody uncomfortable sooner or later, great comedians are playing a vital capacity in the public eye by holding up a mirror and constraining us to realize that we would often prefer to ignore the worst.

Comedy is something that can be expressed or acted out in a number of different ways. It can be stand-up comedy or a comedic television show.

There are many major differences and similarities between the film, The Mighty, and the book, Freak the Mighty. One major difference is when Max and Freak are rescuing Loretta Lee’s purse from the sewer, and Tony D. and his friends show up in the film, but in the book, they don’t. One major similarity is when Freak rides on Max’s shoulders everywhere they go. First off, the difference occurs in the book, as it states, “No way, I saw one of Tony D.’s punks stuff it down there yesterday morning” (Philbrick 61).
Comedy has been a form of entertainment since ancient Greece. Comedy often reflects society, so as technology became more advanced it also became more accessible to the public. Leaving the house to see a play transitioned to leaving the house to see a film, which transitioned to staying at home and watching television, and then transitioned to watching videos on an iPhone. Technological accessibility broadened comedy as genre and created notable characters, distinctive styles, and has influenced modern comedians. Bo Burnham began to gain popularity through YouTube.
Mrs. Schumacher Film Appreciation Final Paper Footloose When watching both Footloose movies the 1984 and the 2011 version, there are quite a few noticeable differences. I would like to start out by saying that the biggest one is the character choice. In my opinion Kevin Bacon didn't play a very good Ren McCormick. I believe that Kenny Wormald plays a better Ren. In my opinion the more modern version of the movie is a lot more up beat.
For many people the ideal meal is inexpensive, fast, and tastes good. When purchasing these quick and inexpensive meals we put very little thought into how that food was actually produced.

He interviews various experts such as food advocates, farmers and authors who have written books about the food industry.
Many audiences of stand up comedy enjoy hearing their favorite comedian entertain them. But what would one think when a comedian cracks a joke about a sensitive topic, for example, a tragedy that affected hundreds of people. Some may argue that, comedians are not supposed to overstep the boundary of controversial jokes. These controversial jokes are linked with political correctness—which is used to describe language, policies, and measures that are taken to avoid offense to certain groups of people. Comedians are not compelled to restrain from controversial topics due to the topic not being sugar-coated, the higher level of contemplation that the joke can reach, and the job of the comedian—to make the current issue manageable.
