The Beating Heart of Comedy

Comedy has several subgenres distinguished by their style of delivery, the context used and the source of humour. In theatre, the most common subgenres of comedy shows are burlesque, satire, parody, farce and comedy of manners. Whichever you choose, they're all a great way to relax and forget about the stresses of the day.

So, if you're looking for a good time with laughs aplenty, why not check out a comedy show and treat yourself to a night of merriment. With so many funny performances to see, the only problem you'll have is finding the time to see them all!
