A rhetorical analysis of humor in Persian stand-up comedy
What is it about?
In the present research, based on a new typology, a rhetorical approach is taken to examine humor styles and techniques used in Persian stand-up performances. In this study, the rhetorical devices used by the comedians to create humor, several aspects of the interaction between the comedians and the audience and possible directions of Persian stand-up comedy are addressed.
Why is it important?
To the best of my knowledge, this is the first (rhetorical) investigation of Persian stand-up comedy, addressing humor and rhetoric in stand-up comedy in new ways.
