Could you tell me the difference between :
a- slapstick comedy
b- situational comedy
Thanks a lot for your help!
Slapstick comedy is based on physical "violence." A pie in the face is the essence of slapstick comedy.

Situational comedy gets its humor from the context. TV sitcoms (situation comedies) have a recurring cast of characters who become embroiled in various laughable situations.
