The Truth about Comedy

Comedy isn't that complicated, although it has a lot of complex techniques and ideas. You might have heard of the pun, a the humorous use of a word or words to suggest another word with the same sound or different meaning. Or maybe you have heard of a one liner, a short joke or witty comment that is usually expressed in a single sentence.
