A brief history

Ever since film was established as a viable storytelling medium, one of its main goals has been to entertain viewers through the power of laughter. In fact, one of the Lumiere Brother’s first films was a comedy piece. Given the initial technological limitations of film, comedy quickly became an ideal genre for the early silent films since it could successfully be expressed through visual action and physical humor, such as slapstick humor. Proponents of this can be found in comedy posters such as Oliver Hardy and Stan Laurel, featuring the two legendary comedians in a gorgeous black and white motif that will lighten up any room you put it up. With the advent of sound, relying exclusively on physical mishap and acrobatic stunts became passe and comedy developed into a satirical tool for mocking the establishment through situations that were often absurd. In the 1970s and 1980s, the genre really embraced satirical humor and parody, in addition to a flood of teen comedies. As for the 1990s, during this period of time, actors tended to create larger-than-life characters that relied on exaggerated speaking, movement, and expression. Waynes World 2 is a great comedy poster that shines a light on some participants of this trend.

A multitude of genres in comedy posters

The diversity in comedy posters is another advantage it has as a wall decor. Nowadays raunchy or so-called blue comedies are the norm. Another current favorite is black or dark comedy, which tries to make light of death, violence and horrible situations to make them more bearable and understand it from another side. Charlie Sheen in Hot Shots Part Deux is a superb comedy poster of this type of genre, spoofing the uber-violence of the action flicks of the 80s and 90s. Cringe comedy is one more sub-genre that takes pleasure in other people's pain, which comes from something called dramatic irony. There is also deadpan comedy, mockumentary, wordplay comedies, and many more. The mixture of genres also benefits comedy posters, providing you with a range of motifs.
