Comedy music is music that is comic or humorous in nature, encompassing a wide variety of music genres. Popular types of comedy music include parody music, novelty songs, comedy pop, comedy rock and comedy hip hop. Some comedians, such as Adam Sandler, Bill Bailey, and Tim Hawkins, use songs in stand-up in addition to more traditional joke-telling methods, while others, such as "Weird Al" Yankovic, The Lonely Island and The Gregory Brothers, focus entirely on comedy music as their sole medium of humor. Country music duo Big & Rich also use humor in their songs.
