In this post, I will be writing about the history of comedy films and directors of this genre and references.

History of Comedy Films –

Comedy film is a kind of film in which the fundamental accentuation is on funniness. These movies are intended to stimulate the group of onlookers through beguilement, and regularly work by overstating attributes for amusing impact. Films in this style customarily have a cheerful closure. 

One of the most seasoned kinds in film, a portion of the first quiet motion pictures were comedies, as droll parody frequently depends on visual portrayals, without requiring sound. Later, when the sound came in 1927, Comedy movies took another swing, because of chuckling can now be brought on by the vaudeville circumstances, as well as the dialogs. 

Comic drama, not at all like other film kinds, puts considerably more concentrate on individual stars, with numerous previous stand-up funnies transitioning to the film business because of their prominence. While numerous comic films are happy stories with no plan other than to delight, others contain political or social critique.
