Abstract

Despite the widespread use of humour in carnivals, research in this area is limited. Therefore, this research seeks to address this gap and uncover the humorous nature of carnivals from a scientific perspective. The purpose of this research is to conduct a scientific analysis of the humorous nature of carnival culture, to clarify its origins and impact on society. The following methods were used to achieve the research purpose: observation, interviews, questionnaires, statistical method, and content analysis method. The research established that carnival is a significant mechanism for expressing social, political and cultural problems of society. This event is a kind of forum where citizens have the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and opinions on various aspects of life. The research confirmed that humour at carnivals is an essential means of communication and expression. It can acquire different forms, such as satire, parody and irony. These types of humour are used to expose social, political and cultural aspects through using ridicule, distortion and transformation of reality. Carnival humour has the potential to highlight the severity of problems and highlight the shortcomings of society. The research makes a significant contribution to the scientific understanding of the humorous nature of carnival culture. The results of the research will contribute to a deeper analysis and testing of concepts related to the impact of carnival and humour on modern society
