In the old days in England, when the Elizabethans wanted a good laugh, they often visited the Globe in London, where all of Shakespeare’s plays were preformed. The comedies of Shakespeare often came in a form that consisted irony, satire and most of all puns. Because of the ticket not being expensive, the audience was from all the social classes, and they represented the majority of the people. Shakespeare were very fund of puns, which is a wordplay, where you take words that are spelled or pronounced similar but means different things, and plays with them in sentences. An example of one of Shakespeare’s own puns is from the first act in his very famous play, Romeo and Juliet: Sampson: “I mean, and we be in choler, we ‘ll draw.” Gregory: “Ay, while you live, draw your neck out of collar.” The funny part from this act is that the first servant uses a pun, but then the second servant pretends not to understand the pun. The good thing about puns is that it is something that most of the people finds funny.
