Aziz is the funniest comedian that I enjoy watching he has the ability to observe ridiculous behavior and react not with simple mockery or exasperation, as many comedians would, but with half-crazed wonder. Aziz has many ways to show and tell his humor that can be from simple mockery to being extremely sarcastic. Aziz did a special stand up in Comedy Central “Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening” and said “I was doing this interview once, and this guy goes, so, you must be pretty psyched about all this 'Slumdog Millionaire ' stuff." And I was, like, "Yeah! I am!

Television is no stranger to the subject of disability and Full Metal Alchemist in particular is rife with disability. One could argue in fact that disability is the central focus of the show. Whereas many shows may use disability as a way to make villains seem more sinister, Full Metal Alchemist instead shows the disabilities of its characters in a positive light. Full Metal Alchemist normalizes disability and uses it as an obstacle for the protagonists to overcome. The anime show Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is the most popular and most liked anime.

In 2009, it was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, the first time an animated series was nominated for the award since The Flintstones in 1961. The series has received flack and criticism about ripping off the Simpsons. This did not deter the creator from surpassing some elements that made the Simpsons such a success. The show’s writers have welcomed such accusations by pushing back in some episodes where Simpson characters are clearly put in the show to ridicule and mock the allegations. Such actions by Family Guy creators and writing staff have brought many lawsuits to the series, but, what has made this Primetime sensation successful is its fan base.

A sitcom is a genre of comedy that features characters sharing the same common environment, such as a home or workplace, with often humorous dialogue (Merriam-Webster Dictionary). Some of today's top sitcoms are Big Bang Theory, Family Guy, and South Park; however, back in the 60s the top television sitcoms wereThe Andy Griffith Show, The Lucy Show, and The Dick Van Dyke Show. Unlike modern day sitcoms, 60s sitcoms, mainly The Andy Griffith Show, used down-to-Earth comedy and moral lessons to attract viewers. The Andy Griffith Show takes place in small town Mayberry, North Carolina, where Andy Taylor (police chief) and deputy Barney Fife stop any and all crimes in a nonchalant manner.
I think Moliere’s Tartuffe is less effective satire because it not a serious subject. Tartuffe is a comedy which entertains the audience and brings laughter and joy into their life. In comedic, there is always a happy ending and nothing is taken seriously. For instance, Tartuffe ends up getting arrested for prior incidents in which he tries to steal Orgon’ s house in the story. In addition, Tartuffe is less effective to draw the audience’s attention than the way A Modest Proposal did because the audience often does not pay attention to the main information from comedies.
In Candide, Voltaire talks about the female race and the oppression they faced in the Enlightenment. Mary Robinson does the same; however, she goes into vigorous detail trying to express how important it is for women to be at the same level as men. Women were powerless and unable to do anything and both of the authors realized that, desperately trying to get people to see what they saw. Mary Robinson begins her argument by telling us that society has hindered the enlightened women. “Man is despot by nature; he can bear no equal, he dreads the power of women; because he knows that already half of the felicities of life depend on her” (Robinson).
Satire can have many serious repercussions, including public backlash. Though satire can come off offensive, it is paramount to not censor who we are as people. Many comedies have and can cross the line of what people find acceptable in modern day America. Albeit our constitution guarantees the right to liberation of speech, it is often challenged by the public who find some satirical comedy to be morally disputable. As our society grows, so does our consciousness on what is politically correct and falls under our moral values.
