How Characters of Comedians Are Constructed: Focusing on “Dynamic Characters” and the Context of the TV Program


It is said that youths with no “Characters” feel anxious about themselves not accepted in the company. In this study, we used Talk Show of Ameagari Kesshitai “AMETALK” as a data and observed two points; how “Dynamic Characters” work when comedians characterize each other, and how characters get established through the context, by using discourse analysis. We hope that this study contributes to better communications among youths. text only)
