Sit-com?

Imagewhat is a comedy? Comedy is the art of making people laugh without making them puke says steve martin. Well writes a lot of comedy… the trouble is, he’s stuck with so many bad actors who don’t know how to play funny.

My own favorite laugh instigator is Mozzie from white collar. But of the supposed sit-coms, I think Big Bang from channel CBS and aired by zcafe in India is quite funny without hurting people’s  sentiment.

Yes Minister the BBC sit-com

There is a movie called Angoor which is a spoof on comedy of errors,that is great fun.

Chupke Chupke  a Wodehouse kind of comedy.

But there is a sitcom in hindi that is take off on a vernacular comic strip that represents day-to-day  mundane things in a gujju family.

After all as Emma Bombeck notes there is a thin line that separates laughter and pain, comedy and tragedy, humor and hurt.

Ultimately world is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think.
