In response to Comedy, written by Linden on May 04, 1998 at 02:23:13
I don't know that one can make a universal definition of comedy, it is so very subjective. I will use your example of the crucifixion in Life of Brian; many thought it hilarious, many thought it offensive.
I will borrow the US Supreme Court Justice's definition of pornography and apply it to comedy: "I can't tell you what it is, but I know it when I see it!" ;-)
(which Justice was that anyway?)
