It has been told that
laughter is a cure. Even if that statement is inaccurate one can argue that no
harm did ever come from it either. The cause of laughter is mostly recognized
as the comedy. The term itself, by contemporary definition, is any discourse or
work generally intended to be humorous or to amuse by inducing laughter. The
roots of comedy, however, date back to the ancient Greece. Since its origin,
comedy has evolved in various directions, from an academic form to the present
day genres such as stand up or slapstick comedy.
