“It’s better to write laughter than to cry, because laughing above all is a human thing”.
So wrote the French comic writer Francçois Rabelais in the sixteenth century.
And our Aldo Palazzeschi also expressed himself in this regard, reminding us in the Controdolore that laughing, although it is often misrepresented as an indication of superficiality, is instead a symptom of a great soul: everyone is able to cry, just think of the first thing that a newborn does not do. as soon as he sees the light; but to have a good laugh, you have to mature.
Precisely in honor of the laughter and fun that lies at the base, Sky Cinema Comedy has always planned its days and evenings in the name of comedy.
If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, certainly a comic film a day makes the bad mood disappear.
