History of comedy
Comedy has been around for thousands of years. As humans, we strive for laughter, we need it to relieve stress and be healthy. Evidence of comedic acts can be seen from the Greeks as well as the Chinese going back to the Zhou Dynasty who kept jesters in the households for daily comic relief. Despite political obstacles and laws throughout the years which prevented many types of comedy throughout Southeast Asia, comedy still fairs as the most preferred type of entertainment in the region.
