Aristophanes never fails to please. If you think ancient plays will only be funny for people living in ancient times, then you are sorely mistaken. the same rules for humour apply, which means that comedy really is timeless. From the bawdy sexual protests of Lysistrata to the political dealings within the clouds, Aristophanes is a playwright that defined the comedic genre and it's easy to see why.
