A telecomedy, situation comedy or simply comedy, [1] known in English as a sitcom (acronym for situation comedy), is a type of television series whose episodes take place regularly in the same places and with the same characters, [ 2] and where recorded or live laughs are usually included. It was developed in the 1960s in the United States and is still relevant today, as recent developments and announcements show. [3] [4] [5] [6]

Features

Its duration is usually about 25 minutes, although some series can last 50 minutes, and are broadcast in the United States as a funnel program (which collects audience) before the prime time. [Citation needed] The action of this type of series is developed for the most part in decorated studios, and these are limited to about 4 or 5 meters. The action that is narrated is self-concluding, that is, they present stories that begin and end within the same chapter. In addition to these stories, secondary and parallel plots develop, jumping from one to another. The number of characters is limited in quantity, and the protagonists are usually five or six people. The humor that is used is based on the verbal joke, the visual joke (gag) and reaches its best expression in the situation humor. This humor falls on the development of the plot, the personality of the characters and their reactions. [Citation needed]
