Nightmare on Elm Street was a horror comedy
as was Friday the 13th and Black Christmas and a ton of other movies, the point is that, YES, comedy is more mode than genre, because most people appreciate a good chuckle at any given point of any film of any genre.

So money has gotten rid of traditional comedy

4 hours ago

Here's my theory: Comedic films are not valuable enough (entertainment-wise) to spend potentially $10-$20 on a movie ticket for. I am only willing to spend that kind of money on horror films (e.g. Midsommar, It, etc.), action films (e.g. John Wick), and dramatic films (Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, etc.). Comedy usually does not push boundaries. Therefore, I only watch comedic films at home via Netflix, Hulu, Redbox...

If all comedy writers go to TV, howcome we've had no good sitcoms since 2010?

Good video, educational, insightful as well as completely safe and politically correct, can't ignore the fact there is another pretty substantial reason why comedy movies in particular are failing, and if a YouTube channel wouldn't even dare TOUCH the subject, it's actually disturbing.

I would disagree with you slightly. Movies can have a narrative (story) within them that resembles a genre. The western you gave as an example can be told in say Space. Example the Original Battle Star Galactica was an example of a Western. A journey home,Earth. The spaceships are the Conestoga Wagons.

Wow, this philosophical channel sure is going out of its way to avoid discussing the cultural and sociological philosophy changes that have led to comedy's demise. Our PC outrage cancel culture has all but killed comedy, because any comic who dares offend the progressive PC police on Twitter and social media risks paying a far heavier price than they ever did in the past. Since our obsession with PC safe spaces has all but silenced the actual comics, is it any wonder that the quality and popularity of comedy has fallen?

Comedy died when society and reality entered.

Political correctness killed comedy and identity politics just think there funny.

What's the film at 12:24 ?

I think it’s also because our society has started to fall in love with horror and action which is more relatable to our generations mood. It could also be that Comedy is more dark humor in dank memes and vines.

The studios are worried they might offend someone.

This video is mostly bullshit, although it does bring a few good points. The films "Happy Death Day" and "Happy Death Day 2U", which are a mix between a slasher and comedy made in total a bit less than $200 mil. on a shoestring budget of $15 mil. (for the two films!) And the films are appealing to all international audiences for the same reasons -- the films deal with the basic human ideas such as love, prejudice, anger, trauma, the inevitability of death and the fear of the unknown. Those things are the same everywhere, which means that comedy hasn't actually died, people still make money off of comedy, but it has to be done more carefully so as to not be too US-specific or based too much on pop-culture references. Lazily written comedies will not bring you any profit.

The only thing that made me smile here was the Airplane clip. Comedy really is dead.

Hollywood is owned and operated by mindless idiots. Comedy is alive and well.
