Sketch comedy found its origin in vaudeville and music halls. It gradually climbed its way to radio and then finally to television in the 1940s. It comprises short humorous skits up to 10 minutes long, mainly performed by comedy troupes. The style gained prominence with the surrealist British television series Monty Python’s Flying Circus in the 1970s. Many television series in the ‘80s and ‘90s were inspired by the show and maintained the typical absurdity in their comedic voices.
