‘Comedy’ Screenplays

One of the ‘Primary Genres.’

There are 13 ‘Primary Genres’ we’re all familiar with. Here’s one of them, explained.

Comedy films are funny and entertaining. The films in this genre center around a comedic premise. And that usually involves putting someone in a challenging, amusing, or humorous situation they’re not prepared to handle. Good comedy movies are less about making constant jokes and more about presenting a universally relatable, real-life story with complex characters who learn an important lesson.


Mockumentary, dark (or black comedy), rom-com, parody, and slapstick are all examples of comedy subgenres.
