In theatre, a farce is a comedy that aims at entertaining the audience through situations that are highly exaggerated, extravagant, and thus improbable. Farce is also characterized by physical humor, the use of deliberate absurdity or nonsense, and broadly stylized performances. The term also refers to the class or form of drama made up of such compositions.

Farce is generally regarded as intellectually and aesthetically inferior to comedy
