Ancient V.S. Contemporary Comedies

Something I noticed while reading Lysistrata is that it was actually funny, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Maybe it’s my taste, but I find contemporary comedies (movies) are just terrible. All the comedies my friends like, I hardly find humorous. Which makes it interesting how a play written a few thousand years ago can stay timeless and still make someone laugh. Maybe there are some good contemporary comedic plays around. I’ll have to look into this.
