Abstract

The paper focuses on a thoroughly pervasive logical and linguistic device – framing. We will see how framing is performed in the discourse of satire and how it contributes to the humorous effect thereof. The analysis will be done on a very specific satiric corpus i.e. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Throughout the end of the paper it will be shown how humor arises with the breaking of frames (Goffman, 1974), and consequently leads to successful satire. Stemming from the very nature of the corpus in question, a latenight TV show, three instances of breaking frame were determined: linguistic, logical, and visual. Keywords: frame, breaking frame, satire, cognitive linguistics, GTVH, humor research, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
