Greek Comedy, Satyrs, and Aristophanes

Season 1 Episode 4

About the Episode

This week, we're diving head first into Greek Comedy. But don't get TOO ready for hilarity. Taste in humor has changed a little over the last couple of thousand years. You already know about Greek Tragedies, with their hamartia and catharsis and whatnot. Today we're going to look at how Greek comedy evolved out of those tragedies, first as Satyr plays, and later as full-blown comedies.
