Comedy drama

Comedy drama is a genre of dramatic works that combines elements of comedy and drama. As such, it is also known by the portmanteau dramedy.[1][2][3][4] The modern, scripted-television examples tend to have more humorous bits than simple comic relief seen in a typical hour-long legal or medical drama, but exhibit far fewer jokes-per-minute as in a typical half-hour sitcom.
