Comedy-drama
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.

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"
