"But many of the funniest comedies (IMO) happen in a world that isn't real, but at least is close enough that it *could* be - some of it, anyway - in the mind of the viewer. It's often taking situations that are real, but then exaggerating or distorting them."
I try not to be too analytical about what makes comedy "work" but I can pretty much get on board with this because it describes some of my favorite comedies (like "The Big Lebowski" and "Bad Santa", off the top of my head).
