Dedicated "to the clown in man", Sorell provides a detailed look at the entertainment phenomenon we call "comedy". Beginning with the "secret" of laughter, he limns the scope, types, and borders of Comedic theatre. Covers the history of comedy from Aristophanes to Ionesco, Menander to Behrman. Reviews political and literary satire, farce, burlesque, and examples from Moliere, and Pirandello, in detail. Covers Nuda Veritas, absurdity, dark and sick comedy, and in a futures study - "comedy Tomorrow".
