A short note on Comic Relief

Comic relief Comic relief is a dramatic device. Comic relief is a humorous scene in between serious scenes of a tragedy. Its purpose is to relieve the tension of the foregoing tragic scenes for a short time, and thus, heighten the tragic effect by contrast. The comic scenes of “Doctor Faustus” are bright examples: in Act III , Scene I, Wagon makes fun of the clown. This scene is a comic relief to the serious scenes that precede and follow it. In “Hamlet” , the humorous Dialogue between the grave diggers in Act V , scene I   offer comic relief to the deeply tense action of its foregoing scenes and enhance the tragic effect of the subsequently scenes.
