Just when I thought I wouldn't be able to get tickets for me and my girlfriend, a last minute check online brought me here! I just want to say I am just ecstatic about the fact that I could get tickets for a sold out event just a few hours before the show! Thanks to you guys, me and my girl could see Lady Gaga live!
Justin Connor, NYC
I just thought I'd drop a comment after you people really helped me out getting the right tickets for me and my girlfriends to see Whitney Houston. Thanks to Sara for helping us locate the best seats and even giving us a little extra discount. From all of us here, thanks a bundle!

They say, “Laughter is the best medicine” which makes Comedy the most effective pill for any malady. If you are depressed, miserable, glum, tired, stressed or suffering from physical illness, then all you need to make yourselves healthy once again is Comedy tickets.

The concept of Comedy is as old as time. A person was born to smile, giggle, laugh, roll and shout with laughter. However, the art of comedy developed during the time of the ancient Greeks. It was a way of eliciting laughter from audiences. It took up the forms of political satire, farce and ribald parody. It was later known as Old Comedy and was epitomized by Aristophanes plays. Around the mid of 4 th Century BC, comedy took a more literary turn. It was more romantic and less satirical. It came to be known as New Comedy. Some of the most famous works of this genre belong to Menander. In the Middle Ages, it survived in the form of the Italian commedia dell’arte. It reached newer heights of popularity during the Renaissance period.

Romantic comedy, tragicomic and farcical plays written by Shakespeare and richly satirical dramas of Ben Johnson became the highlights of Elizabethan comedy. In the seventeenth century, the legendary playwright Moliere breathed new life into Comedy. It was followed by a resurgence of English comedy scene with the emergence of witty and sometimes licentious comedy of manners created by dramatists like Etherege, Congreve and Wycherley. In the eighteenth century, plays of Sheridan kept up the trend of witty and satirical character comedies. At the turn of the century, Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw and Anton Chekhov became the forerunners of the genre with their comedies of manner, ideas and subtle humor.

With the invention of television, a whole new face of Comedy emerged in the twentieth century. Charlie Chaplin was considered the face of comedy in the form of mime. At the same time, theater adopted musical comedies. Comic operas of Sullivan, Kaufman, Moss Hart and W. S. Gilbert received a tremendous response from the audiences. During this time, another style of comedy was emerging and that was standup comedy. Though it can be traced back to the days of princely courts where courtiers and jesters used to entertain the guests, it received professional status after the World War II. War-weary people accepted comedy in any form and developed a new love for the art.

This is why Comedy is such an essential part of our entertainment these days. There are a great many talents in the field of standup comedy today such as Seinfeld, Aziz Ansari, Bill Cosby and Craig Ferguson. There are shows held where you may watch performances of many comedians on a single platform, for example, Clean Kings of Comedy, Capitol Steps and Winnipeg Comedy Festival-Friday Night Late Gala. Numerous comedy plays and musicals are also performed in theatres from time to time which keep the laughter going.

So get your Comedy tickets and fill this year with smiles and laughter!
