Great deaths in movies aren't just reserved for the horror, action or thriller genres. Those genres tend to be the ones that come first to the mind when thinking about movie deaths, but a good comical catastrophe can match up with the best of what they have to offer.
Death is an objectively morbid subject and horrible to even think about, which is exactly why it is so important to find a healthy way to cope. A good comedic death can turn something we shouldn't normally be laughing at into something we do, and in the process provide us with some much needed relief.
However, it isn't always about catharsis. Sometimes a death is funny just because of how completely and utterly absurd or shocking it is, making you wonder what the actual hell the filmmakers were thinking. Well done dark humor will have you questioning if you need to go see a therapist for laughing at something many others would find horrifying.
Now, with all that out of the way, it's time to strap in and take a look at the ten funniest deaths in comedy movies.
