  Comedy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Comedy has a classical meaning (comical theatre) and a popular one (the use of humour with an intent to provoke laughter in general).
Comedy, in contrast, portrays a conflict or agon (Classical Greek ἀγών) between a young hero and an older authority, a confrontation described by Northrop Frye as a struggle between a "society of youth" and a "society of the old".
The word "comedy" is derived from the Greek κωμοιδια, which is a compound either of κωμος (Classical Greek κῶμος) (revel) and ωιδος (singer), or of κωμη (village) and ωιδος: it is possible that κωμος itself is derived from κωμη, and originally meant a village revel.

 Origin of Comedy
Pasquinades of the coarsest kind were part of the exhibitions, and hence, probably, it was that comedy found a home at Athens during the time of Pericles, for it furnished the demagogues with a safe and convenient means of attacking their political opponents.
By Plato comedy is defined as the generic name for all exhibitions which have a tendency to excite laughter.
By a consensus of authorities comedy has been arranged in three divisions, or rather should they be termed variations in form--the old, the middle and the new--and these it will here be convenient to follow.

Comedies usually come in two general formats: comedian-led (with well-timed gags, jokes, or sketches) and situation-comedies that are told within a narrative.
Comedies have also been classified in various subgenres, such as romantic comedy, crime/caper comedy, sports comedy, teen or coming-of-age comedy, social-class comedy, military comedy, fish-out-of-water comedy, and gross-out comedy.
This is primitive and universal comedy with broad, aggressive, physical, and visual action, including harmless or painless cruelty and violence, horseplay, and often vulgar sight gags (e.g., a custard pie in the face, collapsing houses, a fall in the ocean, a loss of trousers or skirts, runaway crashing cars, people chases, etc).

Comedy depicts humorous incidents in which protagonists are faced with moderate difficulties but overcome them and the play ends happily.
Instead of being isolated like tragic heroes, comic protagonists are comfortable with their society, or become so; and their success is brought about through cooperation with others.
In "high" comedy, human folly arouses intellectual amusement as well as engaging the emotions; whereas "low" comedy arouses laughter through jokes and clowning that have more appeal to the emotions than the intellect.
