How many days until Clean Comedy Day?


While it is true that comedy is often built on transcending social norms and presenting these situations in a humorous way, it is not always necessary to say profanity as part of a comedy routine. Some of the best comedies in the world are based on the absurd, and the absurd needn't be exaggerated. Clean Comedy Day celebrates this more family-friendly form of comedy by challenging us to keep our sense of humor throughout the day and enjoy it equally.

History of Clean Comedy Day

Clean Comedy Day is organized by people who want a comedy show for the whole family to enjoy. In a comedy world that isn't meant for kids or those who prefer healthier laughter, it's important to remember that to be laughed at is not necessary to drop an F-Bomb. To celebrate Clean Comedy Day, hundreds of venues around the world host clean comedy competitions that challenge comedians to step outside of their usual repertoire and deliver a good laugh for their audience.

Comedy itself has a long and long history, with instances of comic performances being traced back to 425 BC in Greece. The first known professional comedian, if you consider a comedian as someone who used humor for entertainment, was Aristophanes, the Greek playwright who wrote more than 40 comedies in his day, 11 of which we still have. As the result, a long and venerable history of people entertaining with comedy has appeared and lasted, and in many cases, clean comedy was the order of the day. After all, you can't expect to entertain a bunch of church-turned-folk with jokes better suited for the dressing room.

How to celebrate Clean Comedy Day

The best way to celebrate Clean Comedy Day is to find a local gig and support those who have taken the clean comedy challenge. If you're really daring, you could try going on stage and telling yourself a joke or three, which is even more respectable if you can figure out your material and deliver to the amusement of the crowd. No matter which activities you take part in Clean Comedy Day, remember to keep your sense of humor pure and do not forget spreading by encouraging your friends and colleagues to tell you their purest jokes.
