Comedy has always been a part of our culture and media. There is no way to tell when the first joke was told but it can be said with confidence that something funny was said as soon as communication was invented. The Greek writers and performers incorporated comedy into their performances and made the comedy genre an integral part of entertainment. The Greek stories, if not totally based on comedic plots, would almost comprise of a few scenes of comedy. It was described by the popular philosopher Aristotle as one of the four main parts that make up literature which is the reason comedy has been an integral part of entertainment in every popular culture since.
In modern day, comedy has branched into almost every other genre of entertainment. From its humble roots of theatre, the comedy genre has now become a big earner in the movie theatres as well as a popular category of music. The comedy genre has its own charts and even its own awards.
The best form of live entertainment is no doubt a comedy show. If you are a fan of theatre, there are many comedy productions that are being presented around the year. These are the closest to the original Greek idea of comedy with comedy weaved into the story and the characters written to amuse the viewers. Some of the comedy shows that have achieved popularity due to their amusing concepts and storytelling styles include hits like Avenue Q and Spamalot!
Another form of comedy that has become quite popular recently and even managed to get its own category at the Grammy Awards is music. This genre of comedy is usually parody based and talented musicians put a funny twist on already famous songs or make up their very own comedy based songs. Some of the recognizable names in comedy music are Weird Al Yankovic, Stephen Colbert and The Lonely Island.
The most popular form of live comedy is the stand-up comedy genre.
