The characters usually have a lot more to say and humour comes just from the dialogue instead of actions. However, in Friends, a couple of the characters are actually portrayed as being very childlike and the humour is much more slapstick and easy to understand because of this. Also the lines given to the characters are much shorter which means each character has something to say in one scene and some of the humour heavily relies on the actions of the characters as well. These short lines make it easier for the viewer to settle into the programme from the beginning. There
I wasn’t expecting there to be much comedy in this play when I first sat down. I expected the play to be a serious play with a lot of fight scenes (Which there were). The monster fight scenes were nice and all, but the fight between Chase (Miles Moore) and Ashley (Agnes Evens) were very explosive and action packed. Chase made all of his attacks tense, fast motions that seemed like they really did connect. Saying that, Ashley and Chase did just as well of a job reacting to the hits at the perfect time. In the fight scene where
Comedy is a type of entertainment that uses jokes and skits that are intended to make the audience laugh. In the short story, “Priscilla and the Wimps,” Monk Clutter had the school under control with his gang, the Klutters Kobras. Before Priscilla came, the gang would go around the school stealing kids lunch money from students. When Priscilla came, Monk had finally met his match. Richard Peck’s short comedy, “Priscilla and the Wimps” is a high level of comedy that uses comic characters, comic situations, and comic language to convey the importance of treating others the way you want to be treated.
A film genre is a motion picture category based on similarities in either the narrative elements or the emotional response to the film. While films have at least one major genre, there are a number of films that are considered crossbreeds or hybrids with three or four coinciding genre or sub-genre types that they can be identified with them and most can be filed into categories that are easily recognizable to audiences (Goodykoontz & Jacobs, 1998, p. 4.1). However, ever so seldom a film comes along that breaks free of its invisible bounds of genre and it leaves the audiences confused about the actual existence of genre. One such film is a film that most are familiar with Steven Spielberg’s classic Saving Private Ryan.

“Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious” -Peter Ustinov. Comedy is used in everyday life. It is a way to slip in the truth while decreasing the blow. Comedy allows the hard things to hear, to be said in a way where it is not so hard. The truth can be hard to hear sometimes but comedy uses comedic tactics to slip in the truth that is hard to hear, but needs to be said, into the world. In the excerpt from Live right and Find Happiness (Although Beer is Much Faster) by Dave Barry, is a high comedy excerpt that uses the comedic tactics sarcasm and situational irony to express the truth about growing up and how to live right in a funny manner.
The tone is consistently light-hearted. Good visual and physical comedy is used, as well as some fun dialogue. There are solid themes about grieving, healing, learning to survive on one’s own, and respect.
The comedy uses physical and visual comedy well. Elevate Syd as a comedic character – her flaws and quirks. Some of the fun moments are when Syd makes the quip about the power tools, while Lucy and Charlie hold vibrators etc. The photo at the construction site is also amusing. On page 52, it’s amusing when Syd, Charlie, and Lucy all answer differently to Alex’s question. Although, reconsider Alex. This subplot would work better if Lucy is truly single and not pregnant.
As a kid friendly show, I could indulge in the silliness of the story line and some of the jokes, but it had a strong enough message that I felt I left the theater with something to think about and debate. It was relatable and really made me think about when I was Bruce and Violet and didn’t feel like I fit in. I really wish that this was something that my parents could have taken me to when I was younger. This is a show that I would recommend to anyone who wants to laugh but also be able to reflect on the world around

There are several aspects of a film that will make a good comedy. A good comedy needs well-rounded characters, adventure, and a love story. If a film has well-rounded characters the viewer can relate to them in some way. If a film has adventure there is never a dull moment that will lull the viewer to sleep, and it’s packed full of crazy obstacles the characters have to pull through. If there is a love story of some kind, serious or funny, it will keep the viewer interested throughout the entire film, and keep the viewer wondering what is going to happen in the end. When a comedy has these things it will surely be a good comedic film.
Even since the released of the first ARG, Ong’s Hat, in 1993, the genre is emerging, evolving and reaching the public as promotional devices, entertainment, educational purposes and some other are studded with factual information and serve as works of
Post-war Japanese society is a world where High and Low art is blurred together by otaku, such as anime, and social class. However, Takashi Murakami straddles the line. Murakami spills a mix of Nihanga and Otaku into the canvases, plastic toys, handbags, shoes, etc; endorsing his own theory/style named “Superflat”. Using strategical subject matter such as popular Japanese comic figures combined with ukiyo-e(traditional Japanese block prints), and addressing these contrasting qualities to outside cultures; Murakami intensifies what Pop Art accomplished, art versus material. On other feelings, one could argue that “Superflat” isn’t a unique, Japan-identified style, that “Superflat” is a humiliation to the Contemporary Art world because of its commercialism. Lastly, that is a continuation of the already well developed Pop Art. On the supporting side, Murakami’s “Superflat” is a high-energy, cross-culture style that serves as a new way to represent the high and low of art that is considerably unique to Japan. To support this, Murakami’s past and present artwork will have to be established chronologically to illustrate how the timeline affects his work.
The show is quite abundant with meta-humor; in fact, there is an entire episode in which the characters engage themselves in watching T.V. shows featuring themselves in an alternate universe while they discuss the possible consequences if those realities had been their realities. There is some semi-dark humour in display as well as one of the many inventions turn the entire population of the globe to become fatally obsessed with Morty and they get eventually transformed into deformed beings prompting the titular characters to enter a universe where they are dead and replace themselves with the dead versions and completely enter into a different reality.
Anime, is a term that is used to represent Japanese animation (Lamarre 1). It is a combination of both form of content and form of expression. However, there seems to be more emphasis on form of content rather than expression when discussing anime. Form of content includes the genre, story and narrative while form of expression includes the animation and the style. Form of content can be described as what the audience is being shown and the message that is conveyed. On the other hand, form of expression emphasizes how the animation is shown and as a means for the animation to be shown. In this paper, the first episode of the television anime series Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon (also known as Bishōjo Senshi Sērāmūn in Japanese), will be
