Comedy as a form of entertainment dates as far back as the concept of live entertainment itself, but the style of comedy that we are familiar with nowadays originated in the 20th century music hall circuits. Acts began to intersperse their theatrical or musical performances with comedic elements, which proved very popular with audiences. Soon comic acts and individual stand-up comedians were found on stages throughout the US and Europe. They were a particular favourite of troops during WW2 and it is during this time that some of the best known comics, such as Bob Hope, began their careers. Comedy clubs became popular venues for audiences eager to enjoy a good laugh and a more unique night's entertainment. The advent of TV and radio gave comics better opportunities to reach the masses. However, this also meant there was a call for greater turnover of material. A music hall act could take one routine on the road to different venues for weeks on end, if not months. Nowadays, acts such as Sarah Silverman, Billy Connolly and Jay Leno must create more reactionary and current comedy material.
