Walk with comedians to enjoy the beauty of life!
As years have gone by, the term comedy came to be associated with any sort of performance intended to provoke laughter. Shakespearean comedies were famous in the Elizabethan age and it always had a happy ending. In the 19th century people saw the emergence of cinema, while the 20th twentieth witnessed the advent of TV and this gave comedians more opportunities to come into limelight.
Comedy can be divided into multiple genres on the basis of the source of humor, the method of delivery, and the context in which it is delivered. But some times these different forms overlap, and most comedies we watch today contain multiple genres. Some of the sub-genres of comedy are farce, comedy of manners, burlesque, and satire.
When the topic is comedy, we can never forget one of the most pivotal stars of the early days of Hollywood, Charlie Chaplin. Through silent films he conquered our hearts and became one of the best known faces on earth. Whenever we think about him the first picture that comes into our mind will be the “Little Tramp” character; the man with the toothbrush mustache, bowler hat, bamboo cane, and a funny walk.
While Chaplin’s jesting acrobatics made him famous, delicacy of his acting made him great. To create humor or pathos for a situation, Chaplin used to create an environment by his own and walk around it until something natural happened. From his ‘Easy Street’ in 1917 to ‘Modern Times’ (1936), he acted in many of the amazing and most popular films of that time.
It’s really interesting to know that he never shot a single film with a working script. His way of acting was totally different. Chaplin would start with a story in his mind and constantly re-erect it until he gets satisfaction. One of his strategies during filming was that he would not release any of his films until he got 100% satisfaction with the result. In most movies of that time, we can see his overdramatic acting along with larger-than-life emotions and this was just for inviting viewer’s attention. Though Chaplin will be related with the silent movie era, we can see his strong influence in the modern comedy.
After going with comedy artists and circus clowns, we started enjoying animated television programs like The Tom and Jerry Comedy Show. The entire cartoon show revolved around the never-ending rivalry between Tom, the little fiery pussy cat, and Jerry, the cute-looking-but-witty mouse. The chases and battles between the cat and mouse often ended in comic violence. Jerry thinks that he got huge strength according to his size and he used to show that by lifting items such as anvils with relative ease and withstanding considerable impacts with them. Regardless of the typical cat eat mouse set-up, it is quite rare for Tom to actually try and consume Jerry, because Tom is not at all a good match for Jerry's brains and wits. However, by the end each show Jerry usually emerges as a hero, while Tom as a loser. This longtime television staple got a worldwide audience; that is from children, teenagers to adults and has been recognized as one of the most famous and longest-lived rivalries in American cinema.
Some of the comedy shows I never missed to watch were Charlie Chaplin comedies, Didi's Comedy Show and some Mr. Bean comedies. I still remember all the fun I had as a child when I used to sit in front of the television viewing Tom and Jerry cartoons. Even now if I get time, I definitely watch all the possible animated cartoons and comedies on my home TV, which I recently connected with
