something witty with clever political commentary. Comedy today often times is crass and meaningless. Movies like Step Brothers or Blades of Glory are made simply to make people laugh because of how moronic they are. The jokes that are made are either completely senseless or they are dirty. There are also comedies out there now that are not like this. There are still comedies that have clever jokes and comment on current political and social situations. The Daily Show and the Colbert Report both do comedy in a way that is funny, but still makes people think about current events. And sometimes the two categories cross. South Park may be full of inappropriate jokes, but it also pokes fun at just about every politician and political movement. As long as the work, whether it is a YouTube clip or a Broadway show, intend to elicit humor from it's audience, it can be considered a comedy. Of course, comedy is also very subjective. What one person finds hilarious, someone else might be disgusted by.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
