ABSTRACT
A case study is presented on how the writers of the animated television comedy series "The Simpsons" use comic theory. Information is provided on the various aspects of comic theory, which the author suggests is prevalent in every episode of "The Simpsons," including incongruity, superiority, and comedy of manners. Particular attention is given to how this theory is visible in the episode "There's Something About Marrying" which originally aired February 20, 2005.
