Comedy films are film categories that emphasize humor. These films are designed to make spectators laugh through entertainment.  The film in this style traditionally has a happy end (black comedy into an exception). One of the oldest genres in the film – and comes from classical comedy in the theater – some of the earliest silent films are comedy, because the Slapstick comedy often depends on visual depiction, without requiring sound. When sound films became more common during the 1920s, comedy films took another swing, because laughter could be produced from the banter situation but also dialogue.
Comedy, compared to other film genres, put more focused on individual stars, with many stand-up comics that transition to the film industry because of their popularity. While many comic films are mild stories without intention than entertaining, others contain political or social comments (such as king comedy and wagging dogs).
In Taxonomy Skenario (2017), Eric R. Williams argues that the film genre is fundamentally based on the atmosphere of films, characters and stories, and therefore “drama” labels and “comedy” are too broad to be considered a genre. Instead, his comedy taxonomy argues that comedy is a type of film that contains at least a dozen different sub-types.
