THE LAUGHTER MAKERS
Starting from 425 BCE, Aristophanes, a comic play and satirical author of the Ancient Greek theatre, wrote 40 comedies, 11 of which survive. "Comedy", in its Elizabethan usage, had a very different meaning from modern comedy. A Shakespearean comedy is one that has a happy ending, and a little more light-hearted than other plays. In early 19th century England, pantomime acquired its present form which includes slapstick comedy and featured the first mainstream clown Joseph Grimaldi, while comedy routines also featured heavily in British music hall theatre which became popular in the 1850s. Today it’s mostly the television that we look to for our comedy and humour.
