The way in which Hicks exposed the flaws in our society through his standup routines makes his standup career the most influential by allowing him to inspire other comedians while still providing social value to his jokes. By delivering his commentary and outright disgust of American culture in a casual, personal manner to his audience, Bill Hicks is able to successfully insult his audience by making them consider their own hypocrisies. His ability to challenge society to see the flaws in their views on issues like religion and drugs and society’s overwhelming need to get involved in issues that are not theirs to be involved in
The poem was a very entertaining and humorous. One of the main things catches the reader’s attention is how they the man from Ironbark reacted to the joke played on him. This poem was chosen because of its lively and enjoyable rhythm. This makes the reader feel a mixture of feelings such as anger when the barber pulls the joke, but humour from the reaction of the man from Ironbark finds out it was actually a joke. Overall it was a very enjoyable and
(Murray-Slutsky, 2004). Occupational therapy intervention focuses on a few main areas such as improving the patient’s attention, learning and flexibility; improving physical function; and improving social, play and prevocational skills. When one speaks of improving the patient’s attention, this can mean they improve the patient’s ability to recognize, adapt, control, and process their response when around sensory and environments they are uncomfortable with (Murray-Slutsky, 2004). This is also known as sensory overload and can happen in a variety of places. For example, Jane has Asperger’s and one of her side effects is sensory overload.
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.

After reviewing and reading about George Carlin, he opened up a
In Much Ado About Nothing, wit was the down fall to many of the characters, but it was also used to provide the audience with comedic relief. Beatrice‘s and Benedick’s pride in their cleverness, Claudio’s assumptions and gullibleness, and Dogberry’s lack or wit and intelligence lead to the misunderstandings and Discoveries throughout the play (Dennis 224). Dennis is saying that each character had a fatal flaw that Shakespeare highlighted by having something terrible or having something ironic happen to them. This shows how he used the elements and levels of wit to captivate the audience by leaving the characters blind to what was really going on. The audience knew the plan for Beatrice and Benedick, but their own confidence in their wit betrayed them.

Hart says this so he knows that his crowd feels as if he is just trying to be an entertainer and portray himself as a discriminator or a “bad guy” . He would not want to cause anybody harm from his act, but instead to lose himself in the funny jokes and get their mind off of whatever is bothering them. Another comedian, known as Eddie Murphy, has been known to make fun of his crowd throughout his act. Some people may claim that Eddie Murphy’s main purpose is not to entertain the crowd but instead to convey messages. The crowd knows as well as the general population that he is not intending to single anybody and bring them down.
“Lolita” and “Dr. Strangelove” are Kubrick’s attempts at using comedy more prevalently in his films. While not straying from interesting and dark subject matter, Kubrick seemed to move to using comedy as a way to enhance his narratives. In “Lolita” Kubrick explores several different forms of comedy in dialog, dramatic irony, awkward humor, and even slapstick. The characters in the film also each have very distinct humorous character traits.
