An essay from the book "Essays on Twentieth-Century German Drama and Theater: An American Reception 1977-1999" is presented. It provides information on the state of German comedy during the Third Reich period. The majority of the theatrical productions that were staged in Germany between 1933 and 1944 were as comedies. "When the Rooster Crows" is considered to be the most popular comedy in the Third Reich.
