What I really don’t find funny is old plays like The Importance Of Being Ernest that have subtle humour material.It is really funny how 8 out of the 10 cats also mock politics and classes.My family are very funny; my dad particular simply because he pulls funny faces and dances.As humour, develops through time and some people prefer verbal comedy or slap stick comedy.However I find a really good sitcom ,a great programme ,a hillarious film and a entertaining comedian funny.Laughter is a positive emotion that is triggered by a joke, being tickled, seeing funny appearances or physical actions, hearing funny voices and seeing various facial expressions .Laughter gets rid of all your stress hormones.

This is obviously to ridicule the author who made the funny thing.Self deprecating is when you make something funny and instead of trying to avoid it, or make something so people stop laughing, you start laughing about your joke, or laughing when you are making fun of yourself.There are people that have sense of humor, but do not understand the funny part of a joke for example.This is just like the parodic sense of humor, but in this one you need to exaggerate the funny thing.“Burlesque sense of humor is where you imitate the author of the funny act or words” (Nichol).

That’s your job as a female artist.” “‘Bridesmaids’ I think opened up a door to allow women to show a bunch of different women in different ways of being funny.Actresses such as Kendrick, Snow, Wilson and others say these new female-created characters look and sound more like actual women they know.“I think part of your job, especially as a woman, is to let yourself be a little ugly and to show uglier parts of yourself.That’s your job as a female artist.” Look at the key points and organize any that are related.“You’re not going to solve the problem, but you can start the conversation,” Headland said.

The adverts are funny to watch and easily remembered and this makes John Smiths more successful.The adverts start with a serious scenario then half way through Peter Kay would add some humour and the advert would become really funny.The advert is funny because it is suppose to be like an Olympic event and the best dive wins but Peter Kay steps up on the diving board with his Bermuda shorts and unfit compared to the other divers compared to the slim divers.I think they picked the best comedian for the adverts because he has funny accent and is already well known from Phoenix nights and various stand ups he has done.I think the adverts have had an impact on sales of John Smiths bitter before the adverts John Smiths bitter was still a succe...

Gremio is the aged suitor to Bianca and hilariously funny to watch because he remains so consistent is his actions and reactions throughout the play.She is particularly disgusted by the way in which he treats his servants.Clare Norman 10M English Show preview only The above preview is unformatted text This student written piece of work is one of many that can be found in our GCSE Taming of the Shrew section.Katherina says ‘Come, come you froward and unable worms’ this particularly supports the old ways of thinking and the male attitude towards women.In my opinion the way in which Shakespeare twisted the language and cleverly entwined it into the natural flow of conversation makes the whole thing seem very realistic.

Why isn’t she with her partner at the start of the act like all the other couples were?’ I think Ayckbourn ‘show’s action’ occurring offstage emphatically, he does this with Marion and Ronald at the start of act 3, he shows Marion’s actions through Ronald.This shows what a poor relationship they have and it’s sad that Eva wants to die but it is very funny visually because of what Geoffrey is saying.One good example of farce is when Jane and Sidney try to start a party games at Ronald and Marion’s house.Satire is a comedy that is very funny but Ayckbourn uses it mostly so the audience laugh about it but also think about it to, it makes them think about what they have done horrible to someone just for a laugh at their expense.Sidney tries ...

One of the puns Feste mentions is; Viola says “Do thou live by thy tabor?” Feste says “No, sir, I live by the church?” I think this is quite funny, but as the joke was about something in Elizabethan times I did not understand it at first, so the humour was taken away slightly as it had to be explained.These two references would be funny in Elizabethan times but now they are not because we do not know who they are.Malvolio says “is there no respect of place, persons nor time in you?” Sir Toby says “We did keep timer, Sir, in our catch, sneak up!” Sir Toby is hardly ever laughed at, unlike Sir Andrew and Malvolio, he is normally making fun of someone else, and because of this I think he will still be funny today but not to be laughed at bu...

Second, it’s set in a hospital and still manages to be funny.” It’s funny when J. D. imagines himself as a deer caught in the headlights.It is almost as if the writers are keen to use as many ways possible to reinforce a point and this is sometimes to the shows detriment.The most impressive thing about “Scrubs” is the way in which the script is written and the clever filming and editing which is implemented to give the show a fast pace and a smooth, modern and funny feel to it.It’s a sitcom that’s actually funny.

Bottom is very confident character during the play and the way he buts in constantly trying to take over Quince’s leadership could be funny to the audience if the lines are delivered correctly to the audience.Also if the audience found this funny they would also find Bottoms transformation funny because they would laugh at what an idiot he is.‘ In an annoyed or fed up way the audience would find Bottom’s interruption funny as he constantly does it.Shakespeare’s audience would probably appreciate the funny side of Bottom saying it should be written in eight and eight more than a modern day audience because they are more likely to know there is no such thing as eight and eight because they would attend the theatre more so knowing more abou...

In Friends, they always meet up at Central Park (cafe) to talk and in Couplings, they meet in a pub, which is conventional.Couplings British fans have loved the series and love the humour and the dynamic of it and they have also said that Couplings, by far, is better than Friends because Friends has few basic, non going storylines that are not funny but they love the humour of Couplings.The series revolves around a group of friends in Manhattan.The series finale (the 236th episode), airing on May 6, 2004, was watched by 51. million American viewers, making it the fourth most watched series finale in television history and the most watched episode of the decade.But when I watched the first episode of Coupling, I thought “great… this show...

This is a funny quotation.Frank starts to tell jokes that Rita doesn’t find funny, as she is more educated.In act two, Rita starts to get more clever, so the jokes made in the rest of the play are more educated, and are not only funny because we are laughing at Rita’s stupidity.These quotations here are funny, but yet again have a serious side to them.Usually Rita would have found this hilarious, Frank being drunk while lecturing, but now she does not find it funny.

And you know they’ve succeeded in making their point when you actually start feeling for the plastic bag.I have to admit, it was quite funny at first but then it got really disgusting and I had to stop watching cause my four year old sister was also watching with me.Every time they compare the plastic bag to a living creature in the jungle not only is it funny but also ironical in the way they make the dog and the garbage cleaner and the fish look like the antagonists.The majestic plastic bag was my favourite and all the credit goes to the voice that narrates the entire journey.Its pretty amazing how they managed to make fun of the whole documentary thing an yet ended up conveying a message in the form of a YouTube video.

Although little known, Funny Bones is sometimes mentioned on the internet, admittedly very sporadically but always in glowing terms.However, it is a demanding film which does not necessarily seek to please.It is a film all the less comfortable as it takes pleasure in capsizing from one genre to another; so the most poignant scene can suddenly turn hilarious and vice versa.Humor is always close to gravity.This is the vision of Peter Chelsom who said in interview: "For me, there is room for comedy in the most tragic stories.
