Comedy-drama Film
Comedy-drama, occasionally known as dramedy (portmanteau of words drama and comedy),[1] is a subgenre in contemporary forms of tragicomedy, especially in television, that combines elements of comedy and drama.[2][3] History[edit] The advent of radio drama, cinema, and in particular, television created greater pressure in marketing to clearly define a product as either comedy or drama. While in live theatre the difference became less and less significant, in mass media comedy and drama were clearly divided. Comedies were expected to keep a consistently light tone and not challenge the viewer by introducing more serious content. By the early 1960s, television companies commonly presented half-hour-long "comedy" series or hour-long "dramas"
