Comedy: What's Your Style?

The beautiful thing about comedy is that it is so personal. What makes me laugh out loud is not necessarily going to do the same thing to you. That's why there are so many different types of comedy. When you take into consideration how visual most comedy is, it's a very successful author who can manage to translate that to the page.

Just for fun...here are a couple of my favourite kinds of comedy!

An example of Physical Comedy from Liar Liar with Jim Carrey:

An example of Sketch Comedy from Monty Python's Life of Brian:

Character Comedy: An example from popular Australian TV show Kath and Kim

Black Comedy: An example from Death at a Funeral (contains swearing)

I think I am a bit of everything, I enjoy the Simpsons and South park, I like Friends. I do love chick-flicks like Bridget Jones. Bring on the comedy

I'm not such a fan of the physical comedy, but love the rest :)

I loved Jim Carrey in Liar, Liar.
I like character comedy like Black Adder

I am a big fan of black comedy and character comedy. Also love verbal witticisms (one of the reasons I'm such an Austen fan).

Sketch comedy always gets me rolling on the floor laughing. I like other comedy but this kind is the best with character comedy next.
