QUICK LIT BITE OF THE DAY! FAB LIT THINGS TO KNOW!

QUICK LIT BITE OF THE DAY

Black comedy-is a term coined by surrealist theoretician Andre Brenton in 1935, to designate the sub-genre of comdey and satire  in which laughter arises from cynism and skeptism. Black humour is often a satire on the topic of death.

The terms black comedy or dark comedy have been later derived as alternatives to Breton's term. In black humour, topics and events that are usually regarded as taboo, specifically those related to death, are treated in an unusually humorous or satirical manner while retaining their seriousness; the intent of black comedy, therefore, is often for the audience to experience both laughter and discomfort, sometimes simultaneously.
